Memeday Memeday

1:If you could build a house anywhere, where would it be?
Earth because I'm told as bad as the home lending crisis is here, it's even worse on Mars.

2:What's your favorite article of clothing?
I try not to play favorites, the others feel kind of excluded and hurt.

3:Favorite physical feature of the opposite sex?
I am an absolute sucker for eyes that sparkle with mischief

4:What's the last CD that you bought?
An 8 month dealie at what 4. 55% or something like that.

5:Where's your favorite place to be?
In the afterglow

6:Where is your least favorite place to be?
Sewage treatment plant, dungeon, surgery, inside the tiger cage at the zoo...none of them are places I particularly want to go

7:What's your favorite place to be massaged?
Hhmm, so far I've only been massaged in the USA but I'd be more than happy to take a world tour which includes massages in each place I visit and get back to you on that.

8:Strong in mind or strong in body?
What about strong in odor?

9:What time do you wake up in the morning?
Crack of dark

10:What is your favorite kitchen appliance?
What is it with you people and playing favorites? If I say the toaster then my blender will get all sulky. If I say the blender then the microwave will just pout for the day. Why are you intent on pitting them against each other? They are temperamental enough!

11:What makes you really angry?
When people mistreat children.

12:If you could play any instrument, what would it be?
Sigh...Bella. I tried again on Friday for the first time in probably a year because my wrist has been feeling pretty decent. Tuned up and spent maybe 10 minutes doing chords and Janita (for new readers that's my left arm, which I demolished two years ago) just would not cooperate and I paid for it with all manner of pain the rest of the weekend. Yes, Keyser I need to try alternate methods...basically start from scratch because honestly, when I was messing around on Friday I realized I have forgotten absurd amounts of what I once knew.

13:Favorite color?
Tie dye

14:Which do you prefer...sports car or SUV?
Pfft. Motorcycle.

15:Do you believe in an afterlife?

16:Favorite children's book?
You are just bound and determined to stir up trouble by playing favorites aren't you?

17:What is your favorite season?
Autumn (but don't tell the others, ok?)

18:What is your least favorite household chore?
Oh right, I see your angle now. You think if you word it in the opposite way maybe you can get me to go along. So now instead of giving an ego stroke to 'laundry' I am supposed to devastate poor 'toilet scrubbing.' Don't you see the way this is going to tear down the self esteem of whichever chore I pick?

19:If you could have one super power, what would it be?
I'm thinking some superhuman strength would be nice to have for a while.

20: Can you juggle?
I am a mother, what do you think?

21: The one person from your past that you wish you could go back and talk to?
The list is too long.

22:What's your favorite day?
July 20 (I apologize profusely to the other 364 days of the year and the leap day when it occurs. The questioner wore me down.)

23: If you have a tattoo, what is it?
I have unmarked skin...well, except for the five scars from when I broke my arm, the stretchmarks from pregnancy, the stitches in my eyelid when I was a kid, the gash in my shin when I tripped over the baby gate carrying a basket of laundry. But ya know, no ink.

24:What's in the trunk of your car?
You're assuming I have a trunk

25:Which do you prefer, sushi or hamburger?
Why would I eat either one of those when perfectly good chocolate is available?

A girl after my own heart!

James Goodman-Horror Writer said...

lol, those were some fun answers to an interesting meme. Thanks for the early morning smiles. :D

jillie said...

Those are great answers...I needed that chuckle so early in the a.m. My insomnia is kicking in again. UGH!!!!!!

Now I forgot what else I was going to say....pfffft!

Anywhooooo...have a great day and hopefully I'll remember it.


KFarmer said...

Me too either, thanks for the morning chuckle :) You are the best!

S said...

I'd pay good money to see your son do his best 500 Miles routine.

Would it include chair climbing and tipping as in Depps acrobatics in Benny and Joon?

At first I thougbt you said he Pissin the night away song and I was a tad ruffled, the thought of a 12 year old singing, "Pissin the night away...."

Good morning maam!

furiousBall said...

number 11, yes.

Kathryn said...

You are freaking hilarious. This reminds me of the way my bff and I always answer these things. hehe Love it!

Casdok said...

Im up at crack of dark too!!
Great meme.

seventh sister said...

I hope you and Bella the beauiful archtop can get back together before too long. I had to give up playing because it was causingme pain (doing too much massage work) and I did not feel that my clients were getting the best I can give when I am working in pain.

Theresa said...

I missed you while I was gone, but I'm glad to see you are as funny as ever. Yeah, being a mom teaches you not to pick favorites. I'm with you on the chocolate. :)

Mona said...

all your last favorite places are my least favorite too!

if you are thinking of going for an international choice in massage therapy, go for the Bangkok massage, or the Kerala massage from India!

ttfootball said...

no protest to the favourite colour question i see ;-)

EmBee said...

You're always so clever Lime... I love it!

Anonymous said...

Okay, not to make this a total "favorites" kind of day, but these posts are some of my favs of yours. Your insight, your wit, your clever words always make me shake my head and giggle at the same time.

Doing two things at once is difficult for me, so that is saying something!

Suldog said...

Very funny stuff. Except for the serious stuff.

I didn't know you played. I'm a bass player (bass guitar, that is.) I'm sincerely sorry to hear that you have some trouble doing so. Stick with it, build up the muscles, think of it in the same way as when you were building up the callouses on your fingertips. Painful, but worth it.

I'll try to remember to say a special musician's prayer for you tonight.

barman said...

What no junk in the trunk???

You know I love eyes that sparkle but adding in a little mischief probably makes them 10 times better.

One last thing ... I heard that December 3 is officially filing a protest. Sounds like the word is out about July 20.

Anonymous said...

You don't mind if I abscond with the pic of you and Bella, blow it up to poster size and hang it on the wall in front of my desk do you???


VE said...

#23 cracked me up...sounds like me...well, except for the stretchmarks that is...and a few more broken bone scars...

San said...

As always, Lime, you are hilarious!

I am touched nonetheless by your tenderness for the feelings of the chore of toilet scrubbing. If you have a trunk in your car, it's full of empathy. Or would that be chocolate?

SignGurl said...

You made me snort!!

Phain said...

#20 :amen:

Lizard Princess said...

Love your answers!!! I would say that stretch marks are tattoos for sure. I have the profile of Abraham Lincoln in mine. It's one of those "hidden pictures" of course.

Anonymous said...

Fun answers. For #5, I'm kind of fond of immediately before the afterglow myself.

Dorky Dad said...

OK, I understand the tiger cage and the dungeon, but you really give sewage treatment plants a bad rap. Sure they stink and are filled with crap, but they're NEEDED.

(I really have to quit reading those books about 19th-century urban disease outbreaks)

rob said...

Thanks, that was LOL funny.

tsduff said...

I love all of your answers, but number #20 blows them all away.

airplanejayne said...

great!!!! I may be borrowing this....

Craver Vii said...

You are a riot! You know... there's a fine line between genius and insanity... I'm just sayin.

No ink? I'm surprised. There are just sooooo many people tattooed today, that I secretly delight in avoiding the needle doodles.

Jocelyn said...

Strangely, I was going to be disappointed if you had a tattoo! I guess I have an idea of you in my head, eh?
