More About Me

Dara at Chick In The Kitchen tagged me, and I am finally getting around to this!

1.) LAST MOVIE YOU SAW IN A THEATER
Does the drive-in count? Because the last movie I saw in any kind of theatre (aside from my den) was at the drive-in. It was a double feature of Charlie & the Chocolate Factory, and Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. If you’re talking an actual movie theatre, you’ve got to go back to Farenheit 9/11.

2.) WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING?
I’m not reading anything at the moment, but I have a pile on my nightstand.

3.) FAVORITE BOARD GAME?
Scrabble

4.) FAVORITE MAGAZINE?
Country Home. I find it to be a less pretentious version of Country Living.

5.) FAVORITE SMELLS?
Rain. Grass. Lilacs. Vanilla.

6.) FAVORITE SOUNDS?
Laughter, crickets, owls

7.) WORST FEELING IN THE WORLD?
Disappointment

8.) WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU THINK OF WHEN YOU WAKE?
Please, let it be at least 5 AM!

9.) FAVORITE FAST FOOD PLACE?
I have an embarassing fondness for McDonald’s and Taco Bell.

10.) FUTURE CHILD’S NAME?
Yeah… uh, I doubt that.

11.) FINISH THIS STATEMENT – IF I HAD A LOT OF MONEY I’D…
put on a full-shed dormer and remodel the upstairs, which is way too big to just be two bedrooms.

12.) DO YOU DRIVE FAST?
Generally I stick to the speed limit. On the highway I set the cruise control between 3-5 miles over the limit.

13.) DO YOU SLEEP WITH A STUFFED ANIMAL?
No.

14.) STORMS – COOL OR SCARY?
Cool unless they involve a lot of wind.

15.) WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST CAR?
A Pontiac 2000 LE. I think it was an ’89??? I got it in 1993.

16.) FAVORITE DRINK?
At the moment: iced tea or lemonade

17.) FINISH THIS STATEMENT – IF I HAD THE TIME I WOULD…
totally organize every nook and cranny in my house.

18.) DO YOU EAT THE STEMS ON BROCCOLI?
Not usually. It’s a texture thing.

19.) IF YOU COULD DYE YOUR HAIR ANY OTHER COLOUR, WHAT WOULD BE YOUR CHOICE?
I was coloring my hair red for a while a few years ago and everyone (except my mom) seemed to like it. I’d probably go with a reddish blonde again. Maybe in the fall!

20.) NAME ALL THE DIFFERENT CITIES/TOWNS U HAVE LIVED IN?
Three Rivers, MA; Belchertown, MA; Amherst, MA; Dorset/Manchester, VT; Somerville, MA; Fairfield, CT; Ossining, NY; and currently I reside in the Mid-Hudson Valley.

21.) FAVORITE SPORTS TO WATCH?
Does ice skating count?

22.) ONE NICE THING ABOUT THE PERSON WHO SENT THIS TO YOU?
Dara is one of the most genuine people I know, and I’m so glad we’ve kept in touch through the years. She also has awesome recipes!

23.) WHAT’S UNDER YOUR BED?
A couple quilts and a gift-wrap box containing gift bags. I think my bunny slippers might be under there too.

24.) WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE BORN AS YOURSELF AGAIN?
Sure.

25.) MORNING PERSON OR NIGHT OWL?
Oh, I am most certainly a morning person.

26.) OVER EASY OR SUNNY SIDE UP?
Over easy, please!

27.) FAVORITE PLACE TO RELAX?
My backyard. It’s really shaping up nicely and it’s a wonderful place to spend the afternoon or evening.

29.) FAVORITE ICE CREAM FLAVOR?
I don’t think I have met a flavor that I don’t like. Though I will say the Ghirardelli chocolate ice cream with chocolate chips that Friendly’s had last summer pretty much knocked my socks off.

30.) OF ALL THE PEOPLE U HAVE TAGGED, WHO IS THE MOST LIKELY TO RESPOND FIRST?
I’m not going to tag anyone, but if you’d like to play along, please leave a comment so I can visit!
