Trivial pursuits...

Ganked from demonlord_lover, who got it from noacat.   (Just remember, I am OLD, I have done a LOT of things, and not all of them were smart OR good for me!)

( ) Gone on a blind date

(x) Skipped school

( ) Watched someone die

(x) Been to Canada

(x) Been to Florida - It probably doesn't really count, but the plane sat on the tarmac in Miami for about an hour before we went on to the Bahamas.

(x) Been on a plane - But nowhere near as much as I'd like to... I LOVE flying!

(x) Been lost - Lots of times, but MSK prefers calling it being "turned around."

(x) Been on the opposite side of the country - Actually, I've seen the West Coast, the East Coast, the Northern border and the Southern border.

(x) Gone to Washington, DC - I have two pictures that I love to compare... one is of me as a kid in front of the wrought iron fence around the White House, the other is a picture of my daughter in roughly the same place!

(x) Swam in the ocean

(x) Cried yourself to sleep

(x) Played cops and robber - Most often cowboys and Indians, though!

(x) Recently colored with crayons - Does writing a note in crayon count? It was all I could find to write with!!

( ) Sang Karaoke

(x) Paid for a meal with coins only? - I second Nicole... Mickey D's, all the way!!

(x) Done something you told yourself you wouldn't? - More times than ANYONE could count!

(x) Made prank phone calls

(x) Laughed until some kind of beverage came out of your nose.

(x) Caught a snowflake on your tongue

(x) Written a letter to Santa Claus

(x) Been kissed under the mistletoe

(x) Watched the sunrise with someone you care about

(x) Blown bubbles

(x) Gone ice-skating - ONLY ONCE... and felt like a damn fool.

(x) Been skinny dipping outdoors

(x) Gone to the movies

  1. Any nicknames? "Nan."  I don't much care for it either.  Nor do I particularly like "Nanny."  "Nance" is ok, "MOM" is most often (even from those I didn't give birth to!), and I'll answer to "Hey You."
  2. Mother's name?  Eileen (to my knowledge, the third gen of our matrilineage to bear the name; my sister (Barbara Eileen) is fourth and my daughter (Jessica Eileen) is fifth).
  3. Favorite drink?  Diet Coke.  My life juice, y'know!!
  4. Tattoo??  None.
  5. Body Piercings?  None, unless you count the holes made when my hubby hooked me through the ear with a pike lure.
  6. How much do you love your job?  Some days, it seems like the most important thing in the world.  Other days, I'm not so sure.
  7. Birthplace??  Kalamazoo, Michigan.
  8. Favorite vacation spot?  It used to be Grand Marais, Michigan but, since my brother-in-law took over the camp, we can't stay there anymore... I still love Lake Superior, but am tired of the amount of effort it takes to meet everyone's expectations when I go.  I guess my current fave is RIGHT HERE.
  9. Ever been to Africa ???  Nope.  Don't intend to either.
  10. Ever eaten cookies for dinner?  Yup. *grin*  Remember, I'm OLD, I've done a LOT of stuff!!
  11. Ever been on TV??  Yup.  I had quite a penchant for shooting my mouth off back in the radical days.
  12. Ever steal any traffic sign??  Nope.  Always talked about it; never had either the stupidity or the guts to follow through.
  13. Ever been in a car accident??  Do fish swim?  I cannot remember how many accidents I've been involved in.  I guess if I counted them, I'd probably just keel over from heart failure or something.
  14. Drive a 2-door or 4-door vehicle??  "My" vehicle has 4 doors... Dodge Ram 1500.  But I don't get to drive it very often.  The "Danger Ranger," Jessa's truck, has 2 doors.  The Mercury "Mistake," MSK's car, has 4 doors.  I get to drive these occasionally as well.  The two vehicles that are titled in MY name - the GTO and the TransAm - have 2 doors each.  But it isn't like I get to drive either of those.  The GTO is in pieces, and the TransAm is Steven's.  'Nuff said there, I think!
  15. Favorite salad dressing??  Kraft Garlic Ranch.
  16. Favorite pie??  Pumpkin, I guess.  Probably because it's one of the few that it is permissible to hide the entire slice of pie under the whipped cream.  Frankly, I use pumpkin pie as an excuse to eat the whipped cream.  It then degenerates into just eating the whipped cream.  Can you tell I like whipped cream???
  17. Favorite number??  One.  I can handle one of anything.  Throw more than one at a time at me and I get flustered.
  18. Favorite movie??  Movies?  What are those??  I haven't seen one of those in so long, I can't even remember what I liked.
  19. Favorite holiday??  None.  Holidays were made for MOM-type people to work their butts off trying to please other family members with decorations, food, or travel.  Tired of it, thanks.
  20. Favorite food??  Rare BEEF.  COW.  Meat food.  Can you tell it's been a while since I've had a steak?  I also like seafood... lobster, crab, shrimp... WITH my cow.  Surf and Turf ROCKS!
  21. Favorite day of the week?  Any day that requires all the other family members to be ELSEWHERE.  That works for me!!
  22. Favorite brand of body wash?  Yardley Flowering English Lavender.  I buy it in bulk so I won't run out.
  23. Favorite toothpaste??  Sensodyne - don't care about the flavor, but I sure do love the 'deadening' effect it has!
  24. Favorite smell??  Lavender or Bayberry.  Mint on other people's breath, few things are sexier than a hot guy with minty breath!  Apples & Cinnamon or fresh evergreen at Christmas.
  25. What do you do to relax?  READ!!
  26. Favorite gift ever given?  If it means something *I* gave... probably the recliner and footstool I gave my father one year - surprised the hell outta the old fart.  If it means something I've received, probably the handmade Mother's Day card I got from my son one year.  He drew a picture of my horse on it, and that was very special because the boy HATED the horses... they took too much time away from him.
  27. How do you see yourself in 10 years??  Take your pick - pushing up daisies, if I have MY way.  Alive on machines if my daughter has HER way.  Existing in a robot body, if some of my ex-alien-kids have THEIR way.  It all depends on who gets to me first after I lose the ability to fight them all off!!
  28. Furthest place you will send this message?  Only as far as those who read it... some I don't even KNOW where they are, so... um... no clue!!
  29. Who will respond to this the fastest?  Again, no clue... whoever is the MOST bored?

And this concludes our test of the trivia broadcast system.  This was only a test.  Thank you for your cooperation (or, as spelled in a fan fic I recently read, "corporation" *snicker*)!  I really do have to try creating a story out of those someday.  I'm pretty sure that, if anyone could even figure it all out without translation, it would be a side-splitter.  Anyway, onward to more productive and semi-serious pursuits!
