45 things you just might not care to know

It’s Wednesday, March 3rd at 12:03 a.m. Okay, scratch that. It’s Thursday, March 4th at 12:04 a.m. I’m leaving for New Jersey in the morning (this morning) and finding it hard to pack without having blog posts line up for the next 5 days. Whipped the first 4 off in no time flat (okay, like 3 hours). Had NO idea what to write for Monday, March 8. It seems like light years away. What could I write that will still be relevant then??

I know! I’ll write something that’s not really even relevant NOW. Then I won’t have to stress about it. After reading my friend Amber’s post (that totally cracked me up), I decided to follow in her footsteps (but customize it for me, of course). Seriously, if you get bored reading mine, click over to hers. She’s a hoot-and-a-half.

Without further ado…

  1. What is your name spelled backwards? A-L-R-A-M. Gabe’s is EBAG. That always makes me laugh.
  2. What did you do last night? Well, I’m writing this on Thursday night, so I watched the guys sing on American Idol.
  3. What was the last thing you downloaded onto your computer? Worlds Apart.
  4. Have you ever licked a 9 volt battery? Wow.
  5. When was the last time you swam in a pool? Zoo trip in July. St. Louis to be exact. Thanks for reminding me that my swimsuit isn’t going to fit me this year if I don’t get busting.
  6. What are you wearing? Black “Will Rock 4 Food” t-shirt and black sweats.
  7. How many cars have you owned? It’s late, and this question is too hard. My first car was a 1991 Chevy Cavalier, I think.
  8. What is the type of music you dislike most? Opera.
  9. Are you registered to vote? Yep.
  10. Do you have cable? Yep.
  11. What kind of computer do you use? Dell Inspiron 9200. A huge silver laptop that will probably bite the dust soon. I’ll convert to a Mac after that.
  12. Have you ever made a prank phone call? Unfortunately, yes.
  13. Would you go bungee jumping or sky diving? Not on your life.
  14. What is the furthest place you ever traveled? Okinawa, Japan.
  15. What’s your favorite comic strip? Never really got into comics much. I liked Family Circle when I was little and Far Side in college.
  16. Do you know all of the words to the national anthem? Yep.
  17. Do you shower in the morning or at night? Morning. Or mid-morning. Early afternoon?
  18. What is your favorite pizza topping? Just one? How about pepperoni, bacon, green olive? From Benny’s!
  19. Chips or popcorn? Chips.
  20. What cell phone provider do you use? AT&T.
  21. Have you ever smoked peanut shells? I used to eat them, but don’t believe I’ve smoked ’em.
  22. Have you ever been in a beauty pageant? Hee hee. No.
  23. Orange juice or apple juice? How about grape?
  24. Who were the last people you sat at lunch with? Gabe and Nina.
  25. Favorite chocolate bar? Skor or Heath.
  26. Who is your oldest friend and how long have you known each other? Oh, wow. I don’t even know.
  27. When was the last time you ate a homegrown tomato? I ate a bunch of grape tomatoes at lunch, but homegrown? Last summer at Gabe’s parents’ cabin on the lake. Oh, summer! I need thee, HOW I NEED THEE.
  28. Have you ever won a trophy? Yes. Quite a few. Bible Fair, Best Actress (high school), Champaign County Spelling Bee Champ, softball, cross country… I threw a bunch of them away a few years ago in a fit of “these do not define me.”
  29. Favorite arcade game? Ms. PacMan!
  30. Ever ordered from an infomercial? Yes, we actually ordered an exercise thingy once for $100. Sold it for $5 at a garage sale after lugging it from house to house for a few years.
  31. Sprite or 7-UP? Nasty. Makes me think I have the flu.
  32. Have you ever had to wear a uniform to school/work? I’m thinking yes but can’t remember for the life.
  33. Last thing you bought at Walgreens? I never go to Walgreens. Wait! I think I went there in Miami in December 2008. I bought candy to take to the Miami Zoo.
  34. Ever thrown up in public? Um… Hmm… I’m not sure.
  35. Would you prefer being a millionaire or finding true love? Stealing Amber’s answer here. Already found true love, so I’ll take the cash, please.

  37. Spongebob or Jimmy Neutron? Not a fan.
  38. Did you have long hair as a young kid? Yep. Always.
  39. What message is on your voicemail machine? We don’t have an answering machine. My cell phone? Man, I don’t even know.
  40. Where would you like to go right now? Cambodia. And a Washington/Oregon Zoo Trip and meet Ang and Gretchen.
  41. What’s the name of your pet? No pets.
  42. What kind of back pack do you have, and what’s in it? No backpack.
  43. What kind of tennis shoes do you have? New Balance. They’re about 7 years old and worthless.
  44. Who was the last person you talked to on the phone? Mom.
  45. Mickey Mouse or Bugs Bunny? Neither. Mick if I have to pick.

Missed y’all while I was gone! See you in person (well…) tomorrow!

    I need to try Benny’s. And what the heck does it mean, “smoked peanut shells?” My sometimes-stuck-in-my-college-years mind thought of grinding them and smoking them like a cigarette, but I’m sure that’s not what that means, right?

    If that shirt is still black-black, not faded-black, you need to share your laundry secrets. If I know you the way I think you do, it’s in very frequent rotation.
