Happy Birthday!

A few things (meme)

  1. Do you like bleu cheese?  Yes!  I love all kinds of cheese.  I've lived in a couple of places famous for cheese!
  2. Have you ever smoked? 1970 - 2005.  I just celebrated 5 years quit!
  3. Do you own a gun?  No.
  4. Favorite type of food?  Mediterranean.
  5. Favorite type of music?  All types -- it varies with the wind.
  6. What do you think of hot dogs?  Depends on the hot dog -- nearly anything is good cooked (slightly charred) over an open fire or very hot coals.
  7. Favorite Christmas movie?  Love Actually.
  8. What do you prefer to drink in the morning?  I have three cups of coffee -- with cream and a little sugar -- every morning.
  9. Can you do push ups?  I've done push-ups; don't know if I can do push-ups; I may be able to do a push-up.
  10. What’s your favorite piece of jewelry?  My engagement/wedding ring that DH had made for me.
  11. Favorite hobby?  Knitting, reading, gardening, writing.
  12. Do you have A.D.D.?  No.
  13. Do you wear glasses/contacts?  Glasses.  I haven't worn contacts in 20+ years.
  14. Middle name?  Lynn.
  15. Name three thoughts at this exact moment:  Should I throw the sheets in the wash and then take a shower, or take a shower and then throw the sheets in the wash?  It looks like it's going to be a much nicer day today than yesterday.  I need to confer with the girls and come up with a day that will work for all for birthday cake!
  16. Name three drinks you regularly drink:  Coffee, Diet Coke, water.
  17. Current worry?  I'm not much of a worrier, though I might answer differently wide awake in my bed at 3 a.m.
  18. Current hate right now?  Fraud, corruption, entitlement, lies.
  19. Favorite place to be?  With my family.
  20. How did you bring in the new year?  Around a little fire in the woods.
  21. Someplace you’d like to go?  The Mediterranean.
  22. Name three people who will complete this.
  23. Do you own slippers?  Sort of.  I have some heavy wool slipper socks, but I'd really like some slip-on slippers -- those French ones that are so cute.
  24. What color shirt are you wearing?  I'm not wearing a shirt.  Heh.  (I'm still in my nightgown.)
  25. Do you like sleeping on satin sheets?  No.
  26. Can you whistle?  Yes, and I do it all the time!
  27. Where are you now?  In my office/studio.
  28. Would you be a pirate?  I like the idea of being a pirate, but I probably wouldn't be a pirate.
  29. What songs do you sing in the shower?  I do not sing in the shower.  It's true.  I never have.
  30. Favorite girl’s name?  Zoe.  Still.
  31. Favorite boy’s name?  David Michael.  If any of my girls had been a boy, that would have been his name -- after DH's brother and mine.
  32. What is in your pocket right now?  This nightgown doesn't have pockets.
  33. Last thing that made you laugh?  OMG, who knows?  I laugh loud and often!
  34. What vehicle do you drive?  2000 Saturn SW.  I want an electric car!
  35. Worst injury you’ve ever had?  I'm knocking on wood right now because I really haven't suffered much more than bumps, bruises, cuts and scrapes -- with the occasional twist, but nothing broken.  Knock, knock, knock, knock, knock!
  36. Do you love where you live?  I absolutely love where I live.  I think about moving, but can't imagine finding a house/location I love as much as this one.
  37. How many TVs do you have in your house?  Two.
  38. How many computers do you have in your house?  Two.
  39. If you changed your job, what would it be?  A photographer or a detective (which, combined, sounds an awful lot like a Private Eye), or a writer, historian, librarian, archivist, teacher, mentor... too many things!
  40. If you had three wishes what would they be?  I wish health, happiness, adventure, prosperity, and love for my three girls!  I wish for a long and healthy life for DH and me, so that we can travel, have a few more adventures together, and enjoy the grandchildren that I also wish for (but not yet, thankyouverymuch).  I wish for world peace... or, at least, world I-don't-agree-with-you-but-that's-no-reason-to-kill-you-getting-alongedness.  Is that more than three?
Thanks to Ms. Kat for this morning's meme!



I like your list, especially your version of whirled peas!


Heh, another meme that I might not mind doing. What's gotten into me?! It's mainly because I love your answers and there is SO MUCH OVERLAP with mine. Amazing. Happy Sunday, Vicki!


Great meme. I love your wishes.


I may do this meme but like Norma, our answers would be very similar. Doesn't matter really, as no one reads the blog.


Great list, Vicki, and thank you for something to blog.


Five years quit! Congrats!


This is a great meme. I love learning more about you.
