Yes, another meme. Remember the meme I got from Rachel Lucas's Blog? She decided to redo the questions:
I threatened to make the questions on that meme more interesting, at least to myself. I'd much rather learn about people's flaws, dirty secrets, and psychological problems than their favorite stupid color or what stupid kind of ice cream they like, wouldn't you?
So here is the redone, "Pretend I'm Your Therapist" Meme by Rachel Lucas (with my answers)(Note: Dear husband is out of town and I'm in a mood):
WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE? WHAT INSULTING NICKNAMES WERE YOU CALLED IN CHILDHOOD? The nickname I got was based on my last name. Which I'm not telling you. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED? WHEN YOU CRY, DO YOU LOOK UGLY, OR DOES IT GIVE YOU A BEAUTIFUL SAD GLOW? How should I know? I'm busy crying - not looking in a mirror. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING? ARE YOU FORGETTING HOW TO WRITE BECAUSE YOU SPEND SO MUCH TIME ON THE COMPUTER? Yes! I never liked my handwriting. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH MEAT? DO YOU THINK VEGETARIANS ARE INSANE? (BECAUSE THEY ARE.) Ummm...no. OTOH, I don't have the incentive to become one. I could feel guilty about being a carnivore - but that would have to take its place in line behind feeling guilty for being a bad Catholic, and feeling guilty for being a bad Episcopalian, and feeling guilty for using fertilizer on the lawn, and feeling guilty for having too many unread magazines - hey, someone could write a song about this! DO YOU HAVE KIDS? DO YOU LIKE KIDS? IF SO, WHY? WHY, IN THE NAME OF GOD? Amazingly, I have three (whom I like). When I was a teenager and was babysitting, I swore I'd never have kids. IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU? IF YOU WERE A DOG, WOULD YOU LICK YOURSELF JUST BECAUSE YOU COULD? DON'T TRY TO DENY IT. Yuck. DO YOU USE SARCASM A LOT? ARE YOU AS FRIGHTENED OF CLOWNS AS YOU SHOULD BE IF YOU KNOW WHAT'S GOOD FOR YOU? I've always hated clowns. They're hiding something. When there's a clown character that goes bad in a movie, I think that they're finally revealing their true nature. DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS? IF YOU COULD BE EITHER VERY BEAUTIFUL OR VERY SMART, WHICH WOULD YOU CHOOSE AND WHY? I'm selfish so I'd rather be very smart. Beauty would just be something others would enjoy. WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP? HOW MUCH MONEY
WOULD YOU REQUIRE TO HAVE INTIMATE RELATIONS WITH MICHAEL MOORE OR
ROSIE O'DONNELL (DEPENDING ON YOUR SEXUAL PREFERENCE BUT DOES THAT
REALLY MATTER WITH THESE TWO)? Not for all the tea in China. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CEREAL? WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CUSS WORD? %*@*$!# DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF? IF
YOU'RE A MAN, HAVE YOU EVER CAUGHT YOUR JUNK IN YOUR ZIPPER? HOW BAD
DID IT HURT? IF YOU'RE A WOMAN, HOW GLAD ARE YOU THAT YOU'RE NOT A MAN? I've never had the Freudian "junk" envy. Though external plumbing would be useful on long hikes. But that's about it. DO YOU THINK YOU ARE STRONG? DO YOU THINK YOU ARE GOING TO GROW OLD OR DIE TRAGICALLY YOUNG? I'm past the point of tragically young. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ICE CREAM? DESCRIBE YOUR MOST RECENT NIGHTMARE. It was probably one of those where I can't find my locker and haven't been to class in weeks and there's a major test coming up. Or maybe the one where I have to teach aerobics, everyone is waiting, and all I have with me is folk music. WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE? DO
YOU WISH THAT, INSTEAD OF PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION DEBATES, THEY INSTEAD
HAD TO BOX EACH OTHER, BECAUSE THEN THERE'D NEVER EVER BE ANOTHER
DEMOCRAT IN THE WHITE HOUSE? The boxing would be more meaningful than empty words.
RED OR PINK? ABBA: THE BLONDE OR THE BRUNETTE? Here's a convenient picture for those who want to do the meme. As far as the guys are concerned, the fairer haired one on the right looks too much like 70's, teeny-bopper idols like Shaun Cassidy. So I vote for the darker haired one (and facial hair is always helpful). WHAT COLOR PANTS AND SHOES ARE YOU WEARING? ON
A SCALE OF 1-10, HOW MUCH DO YOU HATE SHOPPING FOR NEW CLOTHES (10
BEING SO MUCH YOU'D RATHER CLEAN THE CAT BOX WITH YOUR BARE HANDS). I washed cloth diapers for five years. The stuff in the cat box is relatively dry - it doesn't faze me at all. However, I don't totally hate shopping for new clothes so I'll say 9.8. WHAT WAS THE LAST THING YOU ATE? WHAT WAS THE LAST THING YOU ATE BEFORE THE LAST TIME YOU THREW UP? How nice. It's been so many years I don't remember. WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW? NAME FIVE "CLASSIC" POPULAR SONGS YOU HOPE YOU NEVER HEAR AGAIN AS LONG AS YOU LIVE.
IF YOU WERE A CRAYON, WHAT COLOR WOULD YOU BE? IF YOU WERE A DOG, WHICH BREED WOULD YOU BE? I'm not extroverted enough to be a dog. FAVORITE SMELLS? FAVORITE BODILY FUNCTION? (COUGH, SNEEZE, BELCH, POOP, FART, YAWN, ETC) Yawn.
WHO WAS THE LAST PERSON YOU TALKED TO ON THE PHONE? WHO WAS THE LAST PERSON YOU HAD A HUGE FIGHT WITH, WHAT WAS THE FIGHT ABOUT, AND WHO WON? Dear husband, I don't remember what it was about, and I started laughing so no one won.
FAVORITE SPORTS TO WATCH? AS WE ALL KNOW,
PRO FOOTBALL IS THE ONLY SPORT WORTH CARING ABOUT. IN LIGHT OF THAT
FACT, WHO IS THE BEST NFL QUARTERBACK OF THE LAST 10 YEARS? BEST
RUNNING BACK? BEST WIDE RECEIVER? BEST DEFENSIVE PLAYER? BIGGEST PRIMA
DONNA? WHINIEST BITCH? ZZZZZzzzzzzzzz....What were we talking about? HAIR COLOR? BALD MEN ARE VERY SEXY. DISCUSS. A picture is worth... (Avery Brooks in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine) DO YOU WEAR CONTACTS? DO YOU HAVE PERFECT VISION? IF SO, RACHEL LUCAS ENVIES YOU WITH THE FIRE OF A THOUSAND GALAXIES. No. FAVORITE FOOD? FOOD YOU FIND SO REPUGNANT THAT YOU SIMPLY CANNOT BELIEVE OTHER PEOPLE PUT IT IN THEIR MOUTHS? Yogurt. SCARY MOVIES OR HAPPY ENDINGS? WHEN YOU GO
TO THE MOVIES AND THE J
ERK BEHIND YOU KICKS YOUR SEAT CONSTANTLY, DO
YOU IGNORE/MOVE OR DO YOU CHALLENGE THEM TO FISTICUFFS? Ignore. LAST MOVIE YOU WATCHED? LAST MOVIE YOU WATCHED THAT MADE YOU GET ON YOUR KNEES AFTERWARDS AND BEG GOD TO GIVE YOU THE LAST TWO HOURS OF YOUR LIFE BACK? I'm too quick to turn movies off. Some of the movies I enjoyed in the 70's got turned off pretty quickly recently (like Nine to Five which I turned off at the pot smoking scene). WHAT COLOR SHIRT ARE YOU WEARING? DO YOU EVER PUT CLOTHES ON YOUR PETS? No SUMMER OR WINTER? BEER, WINE, OR LIQUOR? Wine. HUGS OR KISSES? FALL ASLEEP OR CUDDLE? Both. FAVORITE DESSERT? FAVORITE FOOD THAT YOU KNOW WILL KILL YOU EVENTUALLY BUT YOU DON'T CARE BECAUSE IT IS JUST SO FREAKING DELICIOUS? Chocolate. WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING NOW? HAVE YOU EVER BEEN SO DISGUSTED BY A BOOK'S ENDING THAT YOU VIOLENTLY DESTROYED THE BOOK? No, but there was a Kate Wilhelm mystery with a totally unnecessary death in it ... WHAT DID YOU WATCH ON T.V. LAST NIGHT? TRUE OR FALSE: "REALITY" T.V. IS THE BEST REASON FOR THE REST OF THE WORLD TO HATE AMERICA. I would say true, but if they watch it, it's their own fault. FAVORITE SOUND? FAVORITE DRUNKEN SLATTERN: PARIS, LINDSEY, OR BRITNEY? At least Britney had a song which works well on aerobic CD's. WHAT IS THE FARTHEST YOU HAVE BEEN FROM HOME? WHAT HAPPENED THE FIRST TIME YOU GOT DRUNK? 'FESS UP. I can't get drunk. I fall asleep after a ridiculously small amount of wine. DO YOU HAVE A SPECIAL TALENT? IF YOU COULD
HAVE MAD SKILLZ IN DANCING OR IN SINGING, WHICH WOULD YOU CHOOSE AND
WOULD IT BE FOR YOUR OWN PERSONAL SATISFACTION OR TO IMPRESS OTHER
PEOPLE AND POSSIBLY GET SOME ACTION? I've had so much voice trouble that singing is tempting, but I'd choose dancing because it would be fun. WHERE WERE YOU BORN? IF YOU COULD HAVE ONE SUPERPOWER, WHICH WOULD YOU CHOOSE AND WOULD YOU USE IT FOR GOOD OR EVIL? Time travel. Good. WHOSE ANSWERS ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO GETTING BACK? IF YOU NEVER SEE ANOTHER Q&A MEME AGAIN, WILL IT BE TOO SOON? Some are interesting.
