Saturday Evening Post

Well, since Chefmom only tagged me with this about 3 months ago, I figured I had better get around to writing it. I don't know if there is a universal law against not responding to being tagged with one of these, but I do not want to be the person to find out. So, let's get ready to meme!!! Wait, do I have to pay Michael Buffer $10.80 now for using his line? Great. Well, let me try it this way: Let us prepare to meme!! Yeah, that's uniquely different. Perhaps I can trademark it...

The Getting To Know Me Meme...

1. What is your occupation?
It involves a desk, a drab-colored cubicle and me crying a lot. I think they pay me for it every 2 weeks.

2. What color are your socks right now?
No socks, just bare feet. It is So Cal ya know.

3. What are you listening to right now?
I'm not sure if the answer to this is supposed to be 'The Kingston Trio' or Lucy and Ethel whining about me not giving them enough breakfast, so take your pick.

4. What was the last thing that you ate?
A homemade quesadilla with Colby-Jack cheese and a little sour cream on top. Go figure, right?

5. Can you drive a stick shift?
That's what she said. But for the record, yes. They are much more fun than those cheaty automatics that do all the work for you.

6. If you were a crayon, what color would you be?
Some generic color made by some generic company like 'Rayola' sold at the 99 cent store.

7. Last person you spoke to on the phone?
That dude from Homeland Security that keeps calling me. Apparently they found my blog and I have some 'splaining to do.

8. Do you like the person who sent this to you?
Definitely -- and that was before I got the way cool recipes from her!

9. Favorite drink?
Mtn. Dew. Egg Nog is a close 2nd. Unfortunately they don't mix well though...

10. What is your favorite sport to watch?
NASCAR. I know what you are thinking, so stop it. It REALLY IS a sport.

11. Have you ever dyed your hair?
No, I don't believe in murder.

12. Pets?
My golden retriever Mabel. A man's best friend indeed, except when she craps in my backyard, which is pretty frequently. I really hate the times that she lays there and watches me pick up her dog bombs and then when I am done, she gets up and lays another one. I really believe she thinks it's a game.

13. Favorite food?
Italian, burgers, lobster, Mexican, Chinese, BBQ. And yes, cheese. It goes great with anything, including other cheeses.

14. Last movie you watched?
Chicken Little. An under-appreciated classic. It makes me giggle like a 12 year old school girl.

15. Favorite Day of the year?
Christmas is nice, the 4th of July is fun, but those 9 days circled on my office calendar where they actually pay me not to come in are pretty sweet. As are those sick days I get. Oh wait, I probably shouldn't mention that.

16. What do you do to vent anger?
Oh, I don't get angry. I blog.

17. What was your favorite toy as a child?
Probably my Star Wars toys or my Atari. Although I used to spend a lot of time sniffing Play-Doh, too.

18. What is your favorite, fall or spring?
Well, if I liked them both equally, then I would call it Falling. However, I'm more torn between Winter and Summer. I guess that would be Wummer?

19. Hugs or kisses?

20. What kind of pie?
Key Lime. Always Key Lime. Unless you have a different flavor. I'd take that too.

21. Do you want your friends to email you back?
Me likes the email

22. Who is most likely to respond?
Whoever I beg the most

23. Who is least likely to respond?
Either Prince Charles or former President Jimmy Carter. Believe me, I've tried before.

24. Living arrangements?
The family and my Mabel.

25. When was the last time you cried?
I'm pretty sure it was when I arrived at work yesterday.

26. What is on the floor of your closet?
My boots, my sandals and a Christmas tie that fell off my tie rack. I figure there is no hurry with that one since I've got a few months until I need it.

27. Who is the friend you have had the longest that you are tagging?
Oh, I don't tag. That can be considered assualt according to the California Penal Code. Ha, penal, that's what she said.

28. The friend you have known the shortest amount of time that you are tagging?
Please see #27 above.

29. Favorite smell?
I know coconut is popular and I could score some points by mentioning it, but I really gotta say smoking meat.

30. What inspires you?
Food. Oh wait, that might be the answer to what motivates me, but since I don't see any food, I see no reason to take the time to answer this question again. Sorry.

31. What are you afraid of?
Writer's block and things that go bump in the middle of the day. I ran out of charcoal last weekend and that freaked the heck out of me too.

32. Plain, cheese or spicy hamburgers?
Cheese burger, cheese burger, cheese burger, cheese burger...

33. Favorite car?
The #88 Mountain Dew/Amp Energy Chevy Impala piloted by one Dale Earnhardt, Jr.

34. Favorite cat breed?
The ones that are not in my home. That would be all of them. Although I must say that I wish I could get Mabel to 'relieve' herself in a small box filled with dusty sand.

35. Number of keys on your key ring?
2: my truck and my home.

36. How many years at your current job?
2 many. Actually, it would be more like 4 too long...
Oh wait, that's what she said again.

37. Favorite day of the week?
Those weekend ones.

38. How many provinces have you lived in?
What the hell is a province? I know of a Providence in R.I., but I have yet to go there.

39. How many countries have you been to?
Wow, this is embarassing...none. But I do really, really hope to get to Tennessee some day. Oh wait, I have been to Hawaii (hah, they hate when you do that since they are a state and all. Even though they were one of the last to join. Gheesh).

Have a great weekend!!!!! By the way, since I haven't done a 'Things I Learned This Week' in many a Saturday, let me leave you with this tip: don't drink 3 cups of coffee before entering a courtroom to determine which of the 80 people in the room are going to be on the jury. Apparently squirming really gets the bailiff's attention. And I don't mean the good type of attention like if I was wearing a short skirt. Wait, that didn't come out right...

Just telling it like it is said...

Okay are you really drinking the mountain dew??
Other wise I do like the coconut and the smoked meat...
What can I say...

You know me I can't help myself???

Michael C said...

Chefmom: Thanks for the tag. The resulting bruise should disappear within a week. ;-)

Rebecca: Thanks!! Perhaps I should, huh?

Just Telling: In answer to your questions: uh, no?

Patti said...

As long as you don't wash down the Key Lime Pie with Mountain Dew.
Talk about a sugar rush.

Ralph makes a mean quesadilla. And we put sour cream on top, too! What a coincidence. ;-)

Hey! What's with the crack about Tennessee????

meleah rebeccah said...

I am so hysterical my mother had to come into my room to read why I was laughing sofa king hard.

Your answers (and SomeGirls) answers were my FAVORITES.

God, you should do more meme's like this. You put the rest of us to shame!

Selma said...

BillyWarhol said...
