24 February 2006


I stole this from the blog of laerry, an artist I enjoy watching on Deviant Art--especially her Harry Potter fan art. She draws a great Snape!

Anyway. . . it's just a little meme about "me" and as I lost my previous blog, there's really not much about who I am on this one. A lot of my friends from GoPets have been visiting here, so I thought I'd better say a few things about myself from time to time. Meme-ing is the easiest way, I think.

1. Grab the book nearest to you, turn to page 18, and find line 4.
"Kidding! Jeez. You're such a wuss sometimes. Go sit shivah. Go. Go. Go." Ah. . . a little tease for y'all as this is from the not-yet-published Christopher Moore novel, A Dirty Job. It's sitting here to be reviewed for Harper Collins, as I got the ARE from their First Look program. I'll say this much, it was a 5 star book. Naturally. I'll be posting a review soon; I plan to re-read a good part of it before I review it this week.

2. Stretch your left arm out as far as you can. What do you touch?
The wall of my home office, just at the tip of my nails.

3. What is the last thing you watched on TV?:
Seeing as how that was around 5 years ago, I honestly don't remember. I did watch a DVD (Don Juan DeMarco) on Valentine's night with the hubbie, if that counts.)

4. Without looking, guess what time it is:
11 some-thing-or-the-other-p.m.?

5. Now look at the clock. What is the actual time?
11:18. Go me!

6. With the exception of the computer, what can you hear?
My husband battling the Black Prince on Medieval Total War (SUCH an awesome game! I've got a saved game that's calling my name right now. .. ) and the long version of Green Eyed Lady (by Sugarloaf).

7. When did you last step outside? What were you doing?
We went photo shooting today, drove for several hours and hit 5 awesome cemeteries. Had a lovely afternoon, despite the bone biting wind, ate supper out and came home and crashed for a nap--the sleep of the happily tired after a satisfying and fun day.

8. Before you started this survey, what did you look at?
Um. . . I guess it would have been the comments on my Deviant Art account and the newist posts by the folks I'm watching.

9. What are you wearing?
Blue and yellow plaid pj pants, a rose colored thick t-shirt with bleach stains at the bottom, slipper socks with Bubbles (the Power Puff Girl, not the soap version) on 'em, and my mint green terry cloth robe. I'm pajamanated!

10. Did you dream last night?
Yes! I dreamed that my husband was having an affair with one of my co-workers. I was glad to awaken!

11. When did you last laugh?
I'm with Stoney, so it had to have been just a few minutes ago! That's one of The Best Things about my husband. He keeps me laughing.

12. What is on the walls of the room you are in?
Let's see. . . an antique mirror, a WWII propaganda poster, a LOTR poster, a poster of Cap'n Jack Sparrow, a wood cut racoon, a bulletin board crammed with momentos, a kitty cat calender, a shelf full of fun stuff (including the elf workshop play-scene from the Rudolph movie, the Killer Rabbit from Monty Python, numerous Star Wars figures, a fairy, two eagles, a California Raisin figurine and a tombstone candle), a treasure map I once drew, my college diploma, a hanging chain of bat plushies, a possum plushie and a probably other stuff, but I'm thinking that enough to confess!

13. Seen anything weird lately?
Yes. In one of the cemeteries today, we saw these odd triangular stones. There were four of them, in various different locations, one of which was upside down. They just struck me as odd.

14. What do you think of this quiz?
It's a fine meme. It's not on either end of the spectrum, just an easy about-me meme.

15. What is the last film you saw?
In a theater? Goblet of Fire, opening night. DVD or VCR? Don Juan DeMarco, Valentine's night.

16. If you became a multi-millionaire overnight, what would you buy?
Buy? A home way up in the mountains, away from every one. Preferably one that's underground or at least earth sheltered that makes use of solar, water and wind power. I'd also create a place for autistic kids that are no longer in school--a place where they could come and "work" doing the stuff that they are good at and be able to make money to help their family and to feel good about themselves. That's my dream.

17. Tell me something about you that I don't know:
I have a cool first name thanks to a Hippie Mom; I have the best set of parents in the world and love them dearly; I talk to my Mama on the phone at least once a day; I've not spent a night apart from Stoney since January 25th (or so) 2002 and have no real intentions of so doing anytime in the next ten years; I consider myself to be quite spiritual, and although not a "mainstream Christain" (not by any means) I do still think of myself as Christian; I'm envious of artistic people; I dream of writing a novel; I've grown more introverted as I've gotten older, despite the fact I can still project a friendly personality; I have a 12 year old step-daughter that looks enough like me to be my natural child but is so different from her daddy and I that she might have been born on another planet; I married my best friend after 3 or 4 months of dating. There, that should be enough for now. . .

18. If you could change one thing about the world, regardless of guilt or politics, what would you do?
I would find some way to end religious wars and prejudice of all kinds. I would find some way that we could all live in love.

19. Do you like to dance?
I love to dance! I'm not a great dancer, and I'm too plump to go dancing right now, but I love it!

20. George Bush:
Which one?

21. Imagine your first child is a girl, what do you call her?:
Calypso or Emma

22. Imagine your first child is a boy, what do you call him?:
Grant (after my grandfather, not the General), Stonewall (after the General), Ailil (after the King) or Fiacre (after the saint).

23. Would you ever consider living abroad? :
Certainly I would; long as the hubbie, my 1000 or so books, the four cats, the two fish and the hamster could come with me.

24. What do you want God to say to you when you reach the pearly gates?:
Anything, so long as it's not "Try again, Medbie!"
