Long Lost Meme

I stumbled across this meme yesterday afternoon. I don't know where I got it, but it has been a long time since I "memed", so I thought I'd give it a go. If someone out there tagged me a long time ago, I'm sorry I didn't respond. Short term memory problems, you know. lol

Forty-Six Questions

1. Do you like blue cheese? I don't have anything against it, really.

2. Have you ever smoked heroin? No. Can Heroin be smoked?

3. Do you own a gun? No. I'd shoot my eye out.

4. What flavor do you add to your drink at Sonic? Cherry

5. Do you get nervous before doctor appointments? I'm a big baby about going to the doctor. I get nervous and dread going and, many times, I'll just give up and cancel the appointment and try again later.

6. What do you think of hot dogs? I think they're just big old show-offs. Oh, you meant the food? I try not to think about them.

7. Favorite Christmas movie? A Christmas Story

8. What do you prefer to drink in the morning? Coffee and plenty of it. But, by noon, I've switched to Diet Pepsi.

9. Can you do push ups? You're joking, right? It's all I can do to push up from my chair.

10. What's your favorite piece of jewelry? I'm not too interested in jewelry, unless its the real thing. I wear a diamond ring that belonged to my mother.

11. Favorite hobby? Reading

12. Do you have A.D.D.? No, of course I don't have, hmmmm what was the question?

13. What's one trait you hate about yourself? Some would say that I am opinionated. Some would be absolutely right.

14. Middle name? Ann

15. Name 3 thoughts at this exact moment. Why did I start this meme? Snow is in the forecast for tonight, and it's the middle of April. What time is it?

16. Name 3 things you bought yesterday: Nothing, nothing and nothing. I rarely buy things, other than gasoline and groceries, neither of which I bought yesterday.

17. Name 3 drinks you regularly drink? Coffee, Diet Pepsi and wine of some kind. Anything that pours.

18. Current worry? Whether my children really mean it when they threaten me with "Shady Pines Rest Home".

19. Current hate right now? American Idol

20. Favorite place to be? In bed with a good book, or a friend who's read one.

21. Where would you like to go? I'm pretty content where I am at the moment.

22. Name three people who will complete this? I'm not tagging anyone.

23. Do you own slippers? Yes, but I don't wear them. Don't ask me why.

24. What shirt are you wearing? I'm not wearing a shirt. I'm in my pj's. My hair shirt is at the cleaners.

25. What year would you go back in time to? 1960. It was a very good year! Very, very good.

26. Can you whistle? When I'm asleep I can. I know this because I sometimes whistle myself awake.

27. Favorite color? Red

28. Would you be a pirate? No. Too much stress, and I don't like Rum.

29. What songs do you sing in the shower? I don't sing in the shower. My neighbors would hear me and call the police.

30. Favorite girl's name? Kelley

31. Favorite boy's name? Jason

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

33. Last thing that made you laugh? Something Jay said, undoubtedly. He's a barrel of laughs.

34. Best Halloween costume? A black, floor-length skirt and black top, a blond wig, false eyelashes, silver sandals and a big red boa. In all modesty, I was the life of the party as Mae West. Nobody recognized me. Not even the hosts.

35. Worst injury you've ever had? When I was a child, my patent leather shoes slipped on our floor furnace, and I burned the side of my leg from ankle to knee. Ouch! Ouch! Ouch!

36. Do you love where you live? Love it? I don't even LIKE it.

37. How many TVs do you have in your house? Three. Do you think that's excessive, in a three-room apartment?

38. Who is your loudest friend? My friends aren't loud. They're refined. And, I am the Queen of the May, tra-la.

39. How many dogs do you have? Does a Grandpuppy count?

40. Does someone have a crush on you? I have to beat them off with a stick.

41. What is your favorite book(s)? Oh, there are so many. I couldn't possibly choose a favorite.

42. What is your favorite candy? Skittles. Every now and then, I try give them up, cold turkey, but after a day or two, I have to have some.

43. Favorite Sports Team? I don't do sports.

44. Your favorite meal? Start with a Manhattan, straight up. Salad, Prime Rib, mashed potatoes, asparagus. With a glass of Columbia Crest Merlot. Maybe two glasses. Dessert? Something chocolate.

45. What were you doing at 12 a.m. last night? Sleeping.

46. What was the first thing you thought of when you woke up? Oh, shit! I have to get dressed and go to the grocery store!

I'm not tagging anyone, but if you want to answer the questions, I'd love to read them.

katy: I think l961 was as good. Those two always stand out in my memory. I might do a blog about them.

Kell said...

Oh, don't worry. We've given up on Shady Pines. They've raised their rates.

I keed! I keed.

Cool meme. I needed a good laugh

Nancy said...


I love the kidding with your kids about the Shady Pines Rest Home.

We have a County home here called the Charles Johnson Home. My daughter is just as fresh as yours is and threatens to put me in the Charles Johnson Home all the time.

About a month ago, a full page ad appeared in our newspaper for a new place called Devon Manor (Ritzy Ritzy).

They showed a picture of the first class dining room and told of the cocktail party they had every day and the fabulous trips they took.

Without saying a word I mailed the ad to my daughter in Chicago. I didn't hear anything for a week and then an envelope came in the mail. In the envelope was the Ad with the words IN YOUR DREAMS marked in bright blue pencil. It went on: "You are going to the Charles Johnson Home and don't you forget it....

So, I guess a lot of families have this discussion. It's good when you have a close enough relationship with your kids that you can joke about something like that.

Now if you start getting comments from the CJ Home you'll know she wasn't kidding!
