I was checking other people’s blogs waiting around to feed Hannah again when I found this list of questions on Alyssa’s blog. Since I am bored, I decided to steal it and put in my own answers. Or maybe it’s not stealing since I did attribute the list to Alyssa. Well anyway.
1. What was the first thing you did this morning? Groan, because it was only 4am and Hannah was yodeling her cry that means “FEED ME RIGHT THIS SECOND OR I WILL DIE MOMMY, AND I REALLY MEAN IT, STOP SLEEPING AND FEEEEEEEEEEEEEED MEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!”
2. What was the last thing you ate? The last piece of sourdough bread from the first batch I made with the starter. It doesn’t taste sour at all, which was kind of disappointing. Second batch is rising overnight, hopefully will be more sour.
3. Is your cell phone a piece of junk? I don’t have a cell phone. But Josh had my old one, and it fell apart approximately 47 seconds after the warranty expired, so he just had the Verizon people put all my stored numbers into his old phone and that is the one he uses now. His old phone is clearly a lot higher on the durability scale than mine was.
4. What’s something you’re looking forward to a lot in the next 6 months? Hannah really starting to talk so I can start teaching her phonics. Just kidding. OK, I’m not really kidding, I’m really excited about teaching Hannah phonics. And Latin. How soon is too soon?
5. What’s annoying you right now? The fact that as soon as I vacuum, the dog has a festival of shedding and Hannah barfs on the floor. And, to quote the classic film Spinal Tap: “You can’t really dust for vomit, now can you?” No, my friend, you cannot.
6. What’s the last movie you saw in a theater? The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe. Which I found highly disappointing, but maybe that’s just because the book is so much better.
7. Do you believe in long distance relationships? Although I do believe long distance relationships exist, I am personally glad that I don’t have one. And there is no way I ever would, since I would follow Josh wherever he was going, even if that meant moving to a desert and living in one of those little trailers that is covered in silver metal. What is up with those little trailers anyway? Who thought to himself, “Self, I think I will plate my little trailer with metal. That would be rad.”
8. -11. Questions 8-11 skipped because they are silly
12. What song sums up your love life? “The Luckiest” by Ben Folds
13. Are there a few things you wish you were better at? Where to start? I wish I was better at playing the piano, sewing, being patient, understanding football, giving haircuts, and inventing successful breakfast cereals.
14. If you could be anywhere this second, where would it be? On the cruise Josh promised to take me on for our 100th anniversary. That way, I would be so old that it wouldn’t matter if I ate too much dessert, and I’d know how my life turned out.
15. What’s your most vivid memory from 7th grade? We lived in Seoul, Korea that year, so I have lots of interesting, vivid memories. That was also the year I learned to ski. The place we went to ski in Korea always played old pop music from the loudspeakers so you could listen while you were on the lifts. One day they played “King of Wishful Thinking” about 793 times. It’s a good song, but not that good.
16. What is your latest addiction? Addiction is a pretty strong word! Lately I’m really into spinach and salsa omelets, made with 1 or 2 whole eggs and 2 egg whites, about 3 handfuls of spinach, and however much salsa comes out when I tip the enormous Costco jar.
17. -18. Questions 17 and 18 not really relevant
19. What do you love doing? Singing silly songs, dancing, mixing coffee and hot chocolate, making Josh laugh, reading, having long talks with Hannah about “ah-goo” and “muh-boo-da”
20. -21. Questions skipped because this is getting way too long
22. Name a goal, large or small, that you hope to accomplish within the next three months? If I said “lose 25 pounds” would that be unrealistic?
