38 Things

38 Random Things About Me

(The original meme was 37 Random Things, but I thought since I'm 38 this year I'd augment. Thanks Deb!)

1. Do you like blue cheese? I've never been brave enough to try.

2. Have you ever smoked? A few times when I was a teen-ager. It's a tough vice to really dig into when you're allergic and athsmatic.

3. Do you own a gun? No, but my son has something he shoots pigeons with.

4. What flavor Kool Aid is your favorite? Urg.

5. Do you get nervous before doctor appointments? Sometimes.

6. What do you think of hot dogs? I try not to think of hotdogs too inquisitively...

7. Favorite Christmas movie? Muppets Christmas Carol.

8. What do you prefer to drink in the morning? Black tea with milk.

9. Can you do push-ups? Probably. Massage therapists get pretty strong in the upper body. But I don't wanna. The floor's COLD!

10. What's your favorite piece of jewelry? I don't wear any jewelery.I used to have a necklace that I rather liked, but Poppy stole it, that little fashionista.

11. Favorite hobby? Quilting.

12. Do you have A.D.D? Eh? Isn't that a malphemism for "energetic and motivated"?

13. Do you wear glasses/contacts? Yes, glasses.

14. Middle name? I've got one. It's never been a good fit. My father didn't have one though, which is odd because he was born Catholic and they tend to have more names than they know what to do with.

15. Name thoughts at this moment? I think I just shared my name-thoughts. I have other name-thoughts, I suppose. Give your children names they can live with. Don't be silly. No Pocahontas MacGregors, svp. (If you named your child Pocahontas MacGregor, don't read that bit, and certainly don't tell me so.)

16. Name 3 drinks you regularly drink? Water, tea... I don't have a third. I'm a two-drink kinda gal. I had some blue-berry pomegranate juice last weekend, though.

17. Current worry? Oh Lord.

18. Current hate right now? That's a little more passionate than I feel before noon.

19. Favorite place to be? Hmmm...

20. How did you bring in the New Year? In bed with a hot water bottle. It was -35 and blizzarding. We were supposed to have company but it got postponed by a week.

21. Where would you like to go? Somewhere a bit warmer than here, but not hot.

22. Name three people who will complete this? Goodness, now I'm psychic?

23. Do you own slippers? Nope. I have inside Birkies and outside Birkies. I've been thinking a bit about sewing some sort of warm Birkie-liners though. Haven't quite come to any conclusion on that yet. Maybe they're called socks. My current sock situation is distinctly unsatisfactory.

24. What color shirt are you wearing? A very worn and faded blue flowered t-shirt under my sweater and shawl.

25. Do you like sleeping on satin sheets? I haven't tried it, but I can't say it's very appealing. They look COLD.

26. Can you whistle? Can I stop?

27. Favorite Color? I tend towards blues and purples, but I love them all when they're mixed together. I guess that's why I'm a quiltress.

28. What songs do you sing in the shower? I often catch myself singing "Down in the Valley".

29. Would you be a pirate? Very unlikely.

30. Favorite Girl's Name? Mahalia.

31. Favorite boy's name? Melchizadek. Apparently in Cornwall, Melchizadek takes the form "Zadek". Cool, huh? And btw, I didn't call my defenseless children either of these. Though I seriously considered Mahalia, shortened to Mae or Maizie. Mostly because I love Mahalia Jackson, may-she-sing-forever.

32. What's in your pocket right now? Nuffink.

33. Last thing that made you laugh? Reading "Eats, Shoots, and Leaves". And I've probably got the puncutation on that wrong, but there you go. Don't tell Lynn Truss, lest she pursue me with her pencil.

34. What vehicle do you drive? A rickety red minivan.

35. Worst injury you've ever had? Dislocated elbow and shoulder.

36. Do you love where you live? No. But it's good enough for now.

37. How many TVs do you have in your house? I've heard that there's one in the basement. Personally I hate television. Occasionally I'll watch a movie. Though now that I've said that... my kids introduced me to "Corner Gas" through YouTube, and I love it! I'm glad I get to watch it without all the commercials. It's a comedy show about Saskatchewan.

38. What's your latest project? I just decided this morning. I'm going to make a quiltlette, about 2'X3', to cover my legs while I drive. And maybe a sort of partial hat/earmuff thingy, also quilted. I guess we'll see how that works out. Winter's really getting to me.


There ya have it. Feel free to borrow and morph at will!

Re: #23. You should be careful advertising dissatisfaction with your sock situation -- you never know what knitters might be lurking in your audience, waiting for an excuse to inflict their wares on you...

Art a knitress?

I suppose I should also have advertised that I have feet like mandolins and, um, sturdy ankles and legs. I reckon you'd need about double the yarn. ;-)

Knitress, yes, along with spinner and, recently, weaver. My yarn production seems to outstrip my yarn consumption, leading to boxes full of various yarns -- sheep, llama, muskox, dog, cotton... Jim & Peggy's old dogs, Rocky and Pearl, contributed their fur for a sweater and some mittens. Nice, warm, fuzzy stuff, but it does shed and smells like a wet dog if you wear it in the rain...

My in-laws describe their lower physiognomy as being "sturdy stems." :)
