Just for Cousin Hanna
Hannah sent me one of those very long, very random memes the intertubes are full of, so since I blog more than I email, I figured I’d answer it here. It was a fun one. But long.
1. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE?
“Melia”- which is my middle name – is a sort of family thing. My grandmother named her firstborn Diane Melia who sadly died in childbirth, so mom passed the name on to me, and I passed it on to my daughter as a middle name as well.
2. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED?
I often feel on the verge of tears. Does that count?
3. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING
Nope. Hate it.
4. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH MEAT?
I don’t do lunch meat.
5. DO YOU HAVE KIDS?
Yes, a daughter.
6. IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU?
Definitely. I’m very cool.
7. DO YOU USE SARCASM A LOT?
No. Never. No really. Never.
8. DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS
No. Had them yanked when I was 16.
9. WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP?
Not even if my reward was dinner and a movie with David Boreanaz.
10. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CEREAL?
Banana Nut Crunch or Rice Chex.
11. DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF?
What an odd notion. People actually untie their shoes when they remove them?
12. DO YOU THINK YOU ARE STRONG?
Yes. Have to be.
13. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ICE CREAM?
At Benihana’s in Chicago they served strawberry ice cream and hot green tea for dessert, and when I put those together, I thought I was going to have an orgasm at the table it was so good. So I’m a strawberry girl.
14. WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE?
Whether they will look me in the eye when talking to me. Whether they are actually listening or just waiting for their turn to speak. I can always tell. If we’re going for something physically attractive to me, it’s hands. I like hands.
15. RED OR PINK?
Red red red.
16. WHAT IS THE LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT YOURSELF?
My shyness. It’s hard for me to talk to people sometimes. I’ve gotten better at idle chitchat, but I find if someone intimidates me, I get tongue-tied and I stammer, and I say very dumb things.
17. WHO DO YOU MISS THE MOST?,
Well, among people I love who are alive and say my baby sister Kelly, whom I don’t get to see often enough. Otherwise, I miss my mother the most.
18. DO YOU WANT EVERYONE TO SEND THIS BACK TO YOU?
I’m blogging this so this question is moot 🙂 If you feel like doing a meme, leave a comment.
19. WHAT COLOR PANTS AND SHOES ARE YOU WEARING?
Got my baggy jeans on and I’m barefoot. I try to be barefoot as much as possible because I don’t like wearing shoes.
20. WHAT WAS THE LAST THING YOU ATE?
A bowl of rice with some Golden Gate sweet & sour sauce in it.
21. WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW?
Matt the Cat’s show on the 50s on 5 XM station.
22. IF YOU WERE A CRAYON, WHAT COLOR WOULD YOU BE?
23. FAVORITE SMELLS?
Flowery scents – Jasmine, Gardenia and Rose in particular. Love the smell of cinnamon rolls baking. Puppy breath. Popcorn popping. Hot clothes out of the dryer. Joop cologne. The way it smells right after a strong rain. Fresh cut grass. Leather jackets.
24. WHO WAS THE LAST PERSON YOU TALKED TO ON THE PHONE?
One of Shannon’s bellydance classmates.
25. DO YOU LIKE THE PERSON WHO SENT THIS TO YOU?
I love cousin Hannah! She’s full of win and awesome 🙂
26. FAVORITE SPORTS TO WATCH?
I’d rather play. But if I have to choose, I kind of like going to a baseball game. But don’t tell anyone. I’m no sports fanatic.
27. HAIR COLOR?
It’s ummm, brown-ish right now. A sort of dark chocolatey. Trying to get away from my usual red red. I think I’ve outgrown that.
28. EYE COLOR?
I haz green eyes. Which is odd because they were very blue when I was younger. Dunno why they changed. but I dig my eye colour.
29. DO YOU WEAR CONTACTS?
Yep. The world is a 21.5 pixel gaussian blur to me.
30. FAVORITE FOOD?
Ohmygawd do I love avocadoes. And Portabello shrooms. Mmm Mmmmm.
31. SCARY MOVIES OR HAPPY ENDINGS?
Scary movies fo sho.
32. LAST MOVIE YOU WATCHED?
Heh, it was “Hitler: Rise of Evil” starring Robert Carlyle. It was a CBS miniseries a few years ago and I thought it was really good. I recently saw it was finally out on DVD, so I Netflixed it. So that’s why I was watching a Hitler movie.
33. WHAT COLOR SHIRT ARE YOU WEARING?
Uhhh, red tank top. My chillin’ the most loungewear of choice.
34. SUMMER OR WINTER?
Winter I suppose, only because I don’t function well in Nebraska heat and humidity, but I don’t like deep winter either. I prefer Fall most of all.
35. HUGS OR KISSES?
Depends on who you’re getting them from 🙂 Oh I have to pick one? I can’t just be cute? Damn. Ok, I love hugs. Nothing beats a good bear hug. Though, you know a damn good snog is quite nice. But you probably don’t want one of those from your dad or something. So my original answer stands. Good friends/relatives – Warm and fuzzy bear hugs. A significant other – Damn good snog.
36. FAVORITE DESSERT?
I’m going to go with flummery. It’s feckin’ delicious.
37. MOST LIKELY TO RESPOND
Tonya. Though she may surprise me 🙂 She likes the memes tho.
38. LEAST LIKELY TO RESPOND?
Aunty Jo 🙂
39. WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING NOW?
I’m reading Stephenie (what’s with the ‘e’ there where there should be an ‘a’ eh? That’s just wrong.) Meyer’s Twilight series. A lot of folks recommended them to me since they know I like the vampires and stuff. I just finished the last book (so far) in Jim Butcher’s Harry Dresden series and I love those books so much I felt a mild depression set in when I was done.
40. WHAT IS ON YOUR MOUSE PAD?
Nothing. It’s just one of those wrist rest squishy gel things.
41. WHAT DID YOU WATCH ON T. V. LAST NIGHT?
Nothing. I was online most of the night or watching the Angel DVDs while I work on writing an episode of Angel Between the Lines.
42. FAVORITE SOUND?
Here’s where I get predictable and say my daughter’s laugh. She has a fabulous belly laugh that’s just catching. I love laughing with her. If I can’t be mushy though, I’ll go with thunder. I absolutely love thunder.
43. ROLLING STONES OR BEATLES?
No competition. Beatles all the way.
44. WHAT IS THE FARTHEST YOU HAVE BEEN FROM HOME?
Well that would be Engerland/Ireland.
45. DO YOU HAVE A SPECIAL TALENT?
Nothing I can mention in a blog my family reads 😉
46. WHERE WERE YOU BORN?
At the old St. Francis hospital here in GI.
WHOSE ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO GETTING BACK?
I don’t mind 🙂 who ever wants to respond can feel free 🙂
