About Me Meme

I got this meme from Donna at Bites and thought it looked like fun...


If there were ever a book written about me, this is the list you would find at the front. Come join in the fun and share yours as well!

1. Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed?

When my closet was in my bedroom I definitely kept the doors closed, but now I have a walk-in (how happy am I?!) which doesn't face into my room so the door are always open


2. Do you take the shampoos and conditioner bottles from hotels?

I am not into smelly lotions, shampoos etc so I don't use hotel stuff

3. Do you sleep with your sheets tucked in or out?

I don't have a top sheet since I use a duvet (like the European style), so neither tucked nor not tucked. They just don't exist. But, when visiting friends or staying in a hotel, untucked.

4. Would you rather be attacked by a bear or a swarm of bees?

Um, neither! But perhaps with a bear I could run away or curl up in a ball and escape in better shape. Bees just keep coming at you (went through this at age 11 at camp...totally scary)

5. Do you have freckles?

Sure do!

6. What is your biggest pet peeve?

Oh, Donna said hypocrits, which is a really good answer. But, I don't want to say the same thing, so I'll say people who are always late. I see it as rude.

7. Have you ever peed in the woods?

Yes. And in a meadow, and behind a bush, and in a squat toilet, and once even in a Folger's Coffee can in the middle of a Kenyan safari park (seriously, that was the official toilet in the "bathroom". I was 12 and was impressed that I didn't miss.

8. Do you ever dance if there’s no music playing?

Quite often actually

9.Do you chew your pens and pencils?

No, ick. Who knows where they've been! Remember, I work in a school.

10. Is it okay for guys to wear pink?

It's ok for anyone to wear pink!

11. What do you dip a chicken nugget in?

I don't since I am a vegetarian

12. What is your favorite food?

Mexican or Italian. I'm all over a Margharita pizza or a veggie burrito

13. What movies could you watch over and over and still love?

Shrek, Harry Potter, and Hair

14. Were you ever a boy/girl scout?

No. I didn't even know they existed until 4th grade when I met a girl from a different school who was a Brownie

15. Would you ever strip or pose nude in a magazine?

I think the better question is would anyone want me to :-) I wouldn't. I just don't see the point

16. Can you change the oil on a car?

I can't change it, but I can add oil. Does that count?

17. Ever gotten a speeding ticket?

Yes. Twice (35 in a 30 zone and 75 in a 65 zone).

18. Ever ran out of gas?

This just isn't something I'd do. My mother trained me never to let the tank get below 1/4 full

19. Are you lazy?

Only when it comes to exercise. Otherwise I am hyper-efficient and a real go-getter

20. When you were a kid, what did you dress up as for Halloween?

How sad, I can't remember. Oh wait, in pre school I was a Welsh girl. Random, unless you realize my parents are immigrants and we had the Welsh girl clothes

21. How many languages can you speak?

English. Used to be fluent in German. Some Spanish. Very little French

22. Who is better…Leno or Letterman

Niether. I choose Ricky Gervais

23. Do you sing in the car?

Absolutely!

24. Ever eat a pierogi?

Ok, I didn't even know what these were and had to Google them. I guess I've eaten them...I'm more into sambusas (samosas). Are they similar?

25. First concert?

I saw the Vapors who are only famous for the song "I'm turning Japanese"

Haha! I wouldn't mind curling up with a bear as well. And I LOVE samosas!!

Shy said...

Whoa! You can speak multiple languages, very cool =) Great post, I love getting to know another blogger better!

Sheila (Bookjourney) said...

Yay to # 13. On that note I may watch Harry Potter tonight!

Donna said...

It looks like you had a couple of cops having bad days! A ticket for going 35 in a 30? Really? Ick.

Helen's Book Blog said...

Aths--saomosas...so yummy! Now I am craving Indian food.

Shy--speaking multiple languages may be a stretch, but I try when I travel to get the basics of wherever I am. I will be stumbling VERY badly in France this summer.

Sheila--Oh the power of suggestion...you will watch Harry Potter!

Donna--I know, right? 35 in a 30?! I guess I was officially breaking the law...

Now I'm craving for samosas, too! :)
