Stranger Than Fiction?




1. Who were you with last night?
Mr. Ten S, Sweetness and Bink watching Stranger Than Fiction. That movie rocked. As Sweetness so eloquently put it, "It was great because the comedy wasn't forced."

2. What woke you up this morning?
Our GIANT cat, Ed, when he leaped on me at about 6:15. He's very cuddly at night.

3. Where are you?
Sitting in my chair in the living room.

4. Is tomorrow going to be a good day?
Absolutely! I get my hair cut and highlighted. Brady, my colorist, is a fabulous person and I look forward to seeing him every few months. Plus, I will have good hair again. It's getting too long.

5. Did you kiss or hug anyone today?
Bink is always good for a nice kiss and hug as he heads off for school. He's a sweety.

6. When was the last time you cried?
Two days ago, thinking about how much I still miss my Mom. Nope. Now. All I have to do is think about her and I tear up.

7. Ever thrown up in public?
Several times in my amateur drinking days, which are gratefully over.

8. Passed out because of alcohol?
Only once. Ask Lulu. We were on an El train and she and her boyfriend tried to sell me. I'd say that I'd like to forget about it, but I have no memory of it whatsoever except for what has been told to me.

9. Who's on your mind RIGHT NOW?
How tired I am and how I wish my coffee would work a little faster today.

10. Would you take a bullet for anyone?
Absolutley. Anyone that I love dearly.

11. Where would you like to live?
I've lived a lot of places and I am so glad to be back in Chicago. I'll get wanderlust again in a few years.

12. What do you want to be when you grow up?
A rock journalist.

13. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Done with school and having a little more control of my work life. Also, I hope it includes more travel. Again, the wanderlust.

14. Do you like candy necklaces?
Ick. They taste like crap and they stain your skin.

15. When was the last time you fell over or ran into something?
I fell up the stairs last week. It is one of my signature moves.

16. Do you listen to music every day?
Are you kidding? Every day, almost constantly except when I am trapped at work. Then I sing to my kids that I work with. Maybe this is why they cover their ears. I was thinking it was a sensory integration thing.

17. Do you still go trick or treating?
I don't go trick or treating, but my total guilty pleasure is squirting trick or treaters with the fog machine as they come up the stairs to our door. I get giddy just thinking about it.

18. What was the last thing you ate?
Popcorn last night while watching the movie.

19. Are you a fast typer?
Medium, but with proper form. My mom made me take typing in high school.

20. About how many people have you liked?
Uh, are we in middle school? Should I circle yes or no?

21. What are you doing this weekend?
Apparently, I am celebrating my freedom at a party on Friday night. I have to babysit all day on Saturday and on Sunday I am going to join the gym that Lulu goes to.

22. What’s your favorite type of SODA?
I don't really like soda that much. About twice a month I'll have real Coke if I am tired.

23. Have you ever won an award?
Yup, and I'm always looking for the next one. Have I ever mentioned that I am competetive?

24. What do you want to do right now?
Go shopping for new clothes. My wardrobe is in a terrible state.

25. Are you listening to music right now?
For real or in my head? I am listening to Aztec Camera in my head. I heard it on Mindy's blog this morning and now it's stuck, but I like it and don't really want to stop the soundtrack just yet.

26. Do you like someone right now?
I like a lot of people. A better question might be who I don't like right now.

27. What's a quote that you love?
"I'm a sad, bad, lonely little girl." -Sweetness, age two, in the time out chair

28. How long 'til your birthday?
Too long to use it as an excuse to indulge myself.

29. When were you the saddest in your whole life?
When I lost my mom. I can't believe all the levels of sadness that there are and how long the sadness lasts. It takes on new meaning almost every day.

30. What time is it?
9:01 a.m.

31. Do you use eBay to buy or sell?
I am an eBay addict. I have bought everything from albums to our antique dining room set. I think it is absolutely amazing what you can find there.

32. What makes you mad?
Injustice. Makes me CRAZY mad.

33. Have you ever had a song written about you?
Not to my knowledge, but it's possible.

34. What song makes you cry?
I have to be headed towards crying to have a song make me cry.

35. What song makes you happy?
A Town Called Malice-The Jam Makes me want to jump up and dance around the room every time I hear it.



36. What do you like to listen to before you go to bed?
Rain on the roof.

37. Do you have a job?
Uh, yeah.

38. If you were a crayon what color would you be?
Periwinkle

39. What makes you happy?
My family and friends, going to shows, time to myself

40. Whats the next CD you're gonna buy?
Sweetness and I just bought a few at Target. We bought The Killers, TV on the Radio, and some emo something or other that I can't remember. I have an eMusic account and I downloaded some Guided By Voices yesterday since I don't own anything of theirs.

Taggity tag to whoever wants to play along.
