Because all the cool kids are doing it...  
Ganked from cassiopeia7, but seen systemically throughout LJ, I'm sure! If you want to know more about me, carry on! (If not, I DON'T BLAME YOU.)



1. How old will you be in 3 birthdays?

Oh, gawd. Older than I want to be, can we just say that? Older than half a century. THERE.


2. Do you think you'll be married by then?

Am now, so...


3. What do you look forward to most in the next 2 months?

The spring thaw. Getting caught up on stuff? I HOPE.


4. Do you prefer shoes, socks, or bare feet?

Socks. All the socks.


5. When was the last time you cried?

Hmm. Last weekend? But it was laughing-til-I-cried tears. We have funny friends.


6. What was the last thing you drank?

Coffee. Always with the coffee.


7. Favorite ice cream?

Peppermint from the grocery store, or sweet corn and black raspberry from our local ice-creamery, Jeni's.


8. What is your favorite number?

Seven! I was born on the seventh day of the seventh month. (I am not, however, a seventh son of a seventh son.)


9. What's your favorite color?

Green, generally. Especially sour-apple green. And robin's egg blue and red-orange. And warm gray.


10. What Jelly do you put on your PB&J?

I prefer just slicing banana onto my PB, but if FORCED to pick a jelly, friends of ours make their own jellies (jams?) and they have a blueberry one that is KILLER.


11. What location(s) is/are on your bucket travel list?

ALL THE PLACES. Rome and/or Venice, Wales, Australia, France, New Orleans, I'd love to take my kids to Yellowstone...hell, anyplace new.


12. How many glasses of water a day do you drink on average?

Not nearly enough. I should work on that.


13. What do you drink in the morning?

See #6.


14. Would you rather kiss someone with or without tongue?

Without, generally, but as the scene progresses...well.


15. Do you sleep on a certain side of the bed?

Right side, until my husband gets up then I roll to the middle.


16. Do you know how to play poker?

Yeah, but not well. Just enough to get me in trouble. I'm a bad gambler.


17. What's so good about Fridays?

I get to sleep in on Saturday!


18. Any plans for this weekend?

We won tickets to the symphony, so that's what we did last night. Working on Bangs this weekend!


19. Do you eat out or at home more often?

We eat out more than we should, but we're trying to cut back. $$$!


20. How big is your TV?

45". It's a big 'un. The hubs likes his big TVs.


21. Ever stolen a street sign?

Yep. But to my credit, it was already on the ground. I am a lazy thief.


22. Do you keep a piggy bank?

Sorta. It's a jar with a hole in the lid.


23. Would you kiss the last person you kissed again?

Absolutely!


24. Have you ever been in an ambulance?

Once. And if I had to do it all over again, I wouldn't.


25. Do you prefer an ocean or a pool?

Ocean, hands down! Man, I love the coast. Any coast.


26. Do you prefer a window seat or an aisle seat?

Window, I guess, but I don't much care overall. Flying is a PITA.


27. Do you know how to drive a stick shift?

Noooo, and I tried so hard. I just can't get the timing down. :-/


28. What is your favorite thing to spend money on?

Books, art supplies, FOOD, fancy booze.


29. Do you wear any jewelry 24/7?

One tiny diamond stud in my left ear, second piercing, and my wedding ring.


30. Do you speak any other language?

Took Spanish in college but I can't come close to speaking it.


31. Can you roll your tongue?

Yep.


32. Last person you lay in bed with?

My husband.


33. Do you sleep with stuffed animals?

Do fat cats count?


34. Do you still have clothes from when you were little?

How little? Like, a baby? Nope. But I have clothes from high school; I'm the same size now that I was in sixth grade, much to my chagrin.


35. What is the color of your bedroom wall?

White. Someday, I'll actually decorate this place.


36. Do you shut off the water when you brush your teeth?

Yep.


37. Do you currently hate someone?

More yep. Just one person, and if I could kill him and get away with it, I probably would.


38. Do you currently have a crush on someone?

My hussssbannnnnd. *bats lashes*


39. What are you listening to?

My sons play computer games. Music-wise right now, my latest purchase was Hozier's album. You know the one ... Take me to Church, yadda. IT'S GOOD, OKAY.


40. What quality is most important to you in a hero?

Humility. Competency. Bravery. The ability to compromise.



Now go do something wonderful with your day! ♥

Hee hee, this is the second time Hozier has come up on my flist's renditions of these! Hozier and Croatia/Croatian are the trending topics so far... Which I am in full approval of, because I like that song and I'd love to visit Croatia/Croatian is pretty!

The corn and berry ice cream sounds phenomenal, omg. *____*
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on January 31st, 2015 04:32 pm (UTC)
OMG, that ice-cream is worth selling your soul for. Good thing it's seasonal, or I'd be in big trouble...
Lady Moon-Loona-cyjennytork on January 31st, 2015 04:33 pm (UTC)
Now if we're talking JENI'S, the different ice cream shifts considerably.

Salted Caramel, all day long!!
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on January 31st, 2015 04:39 pm (UTC)
Oh, man, YES ... that sweet/salty thing is the best! I think Jeni's is a teensy bit too salty for me, though. (I just commented over at your meme; we need to do lunch some day!)

OKAY, SAM WINCHESTER

sweet corn and black raspberry from our local ice-creamery, Jeni's.

WANT. WANTWANTWANT.

eta: They don't ship outside of Ohio, boo! D: I may have to move to your neck of the woods just for that ice cream. And the neighbors, of course. ;)

You and my brother share a birthday. He turned 7 on 7/7/77 and my parents had a big party. They did a prize for anyone else with a birthday like that and it turned out my friend's Dad was 3 on 3/3/33.
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on February 2nd, 2015 12:18 am (UTC)
Okay, THAT is very cool!
Amberamberdreams on January 31st, 2015 10:18 pm (UTC)
PITA?
sweet corn and black raspberry - I can't imagine that combo for anything really, let alone ice cream! Is it an Ohio thing???

And never bemoan staying petite - be grateful, woman!
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on January 31st, 2015 10:21 pm (UTC)
PITA=pain in the ass ;)

And yes, corn and raspberries grow all over the place in Ohio! They make a devilishly good ice-cream, I assure you. Almost custard-y. KILLER.

Sweet corn ice cream?? Sounds intriguing! Does it have actual corn bits in it, or just the flavor?
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on February 2nd, 2015 12:16 am (UTC)
It's kinda creamed. SO GOOD.

:D I will if I can!

Take Me To Church is great. You don't need to sell me on Hozier.

I highly recommend getting to Australia at some point. The cost is terrible, and the flight time is even worse, but it's an amazing place and the people are surprising and wonderful. And folks speak English, sorta. Just remember that EVERYTHING native to that place is designed to kill you, and you'll do just fine ;)
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on February 2nd, 2015 12:19 am (UTC)
Ha! GOOD TO KNOW. But hey, if it ain't gonna be an adventure, why bother, right?
Chill McGundear_tiger on February 1st, 2015 11:22 pm (UTC)
Take Me to Church is awesome :D It never actually occurred to me to check out any of their other music, but that song is awesome sauce.

Fat cats totally count as stuffed animals!! :D
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on February 2nd, 2015 12:23 am (UTC)
Oh, YES, check out Arsonist's Lullabye by Hozier too. Creepy goodness!
There's a scientific explanation for that: Dean - mornin' sunshinehugemind on February 2nd, 2015 08:01 pm (UTC)
Sweet and black raspberry ice cream sounds so delicious!

LOL at #33. XD XD
