The Answers

How could I pass up a meme with exactly 42 Questions, I ask you? So I ripped it off from Delton's blog and voila! While Delton's answers resonated strongly with me, I ended up changing more than I expected to.

42 Questions

1. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE? Not really. My dad got to name us. My mom was going to name the boys, but there weren't any. Poor mama. The other option for me was Tamara. He was still choosing on the day I was born. ^_^

2. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED? Like really cried, or got teary? Teary - tonight making a picture folder of stuff to print up as real pics. Really cried - maybe a month ago when a wave of missing my dad hit me.

3. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING? sometimes

4. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH MEAT? Nutella ^_^

5. DO YOU HAVE KIDS? Do my 4 pink monkeys count?

6. IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU? I'd sure better be!

7. DO YOU USE SARCASM A LOT? No. Never. [/sarcasm]

8. DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS? Yes. MuNKi has had his out twice and STILL has some, which I think is far more interesting.

9. WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP? Unsure. But I'd never parachute.

10. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CEREAL? Chocolate Frosted Sugar Bombs. Or anything like it. Also Grape Nuts Trail Mix and Special K and, and -- anything cerealistic.

11. DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF? Shoes?

12. DO YOU THINK YOU ARE STRONG? It's all relative, isn't it?

13. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ICE CREAM? As long as it involves serious quantities and varieties of chocolate and possibly coffee and/or peanut butter, it's good.

14. WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE? Whatever stands out. I mean, if somone has sleeve tattoos, that will be it. Pink hair - yep. Manga hair - you betcha. A nose the size of Ecuador, jawohl!

15. RED OR PINK? Purple.

16. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT YOURSELF? Being very laid-back in general

17. WHO DO YOU MISS THE MOST? My dad.

18. WHAT COLOR PANTS AND SHOES ARE YOU WEARING? tan shorts and bare feet.

19. WHAT WAS THE LAST THING YOU ATE? Something fabbo that MuNKi cheffed up from our plethora of tomatoes, a Hungarian pepper and rosemary, among other things. And his homemade bread.

20. WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW? Prawn talking to herself. I was listening to various Nickelback albums most of the day, but the last one ran out and I was too lazy to get up and press play again.

21. IF YOU WERE A CRAYON, WHAT COLOR WOULD YOU BE?
I think I'd like to be a Twistable, though.

22. FAVORITE SMELLS? JP-4, anything baking, good cologne on a man.

23. WHO WAS THE LAST PERSON YOU TALKED TO ON THE PHONE? BG.

34. FAVORITE DESSERT? I have to pick? Ha!

35. WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING NOW? I just finished A Breath of Snow and Ashes this evening. I have yet to decide which the next lucky book is. Probably Honey Bea. Even though I know there was something else I was going to read that I've forgotten about already.

36. WHAT IS ON YOUR MOUSE PAD? Mouse pad? What is this "mouse pad" of which you speak?

37. WHAT DID YOU WATCH ON T.V. LAST NIGHT? Nada. Oh, MuNKi and I watched a Scrubs episode on DVD in the tub. (seemed appropriate, given the name and all)

38. FAVORITE SOUNDS? The ocean, low-flying military jets, good music, my kidlets as long as they're not bickering

39. ROLLING STONES OR BEATLES? Nickelback and Peter Gabriel

40. WHAT IS THE FURTHEST YOU HAVE BEEN FROM HOME? Tough Q. Furthest from here? Furthest from where I lived at the time? Hmm, CA to visit my grandma when we were living in Hong Kong.

Whoa...42 Q's. That's a hella lotta work. You earned my respect and the answers are great!! You just don't meet a lot of people born in Napa. It's by far my favorite Auto Parts store...
:D

tshsmom said...

We use a mousepad as a no parking zone on our computer desk. If it wasn't there, my guys would stack stuff there too, and we wouldn't have room to run the mouse. :(

I ADORE Nickelback!

kitkat said...

Auto parts...hehe.

I wish someone would come up with a better name than "dishwater" for that particular variety of hair color. My dishwater has never looked blonde. It bugs me, and I have brown hair. I'd hate for someone to call my hair color "poopy brown" or something.

"spank me pink" LOVE it, lol!

Delton said...

There's some good stuff here! The highlights for me were: Nutella (I don't like it, but funny choice for a lunchmeat), Chocolate Frosted Sugar Bombs (I may have to look for these in the store next time), something fabbo MuNKi cheffed up (homemade food sounds awesome!), Prawn talking to herself (Other than when sleeping, is there ever a time that kids stop talking?), Twistable spank me pink (!!!), Scrubs (!!!), Nickelback and Peter Gabriel (Almost any answer would suffice here rather than either of those ancient bands), and finally only MuNKi knows (!!!!!!!!!).

Great answers, and yes, we definitely don't match on a few important ones. ;)

Delton said...

Oh, I almost forgot, thanks for the shout out too!

Michael C said...

Spank me pink? Is that in the carton next to hooker lipstick red? I love crayons!!!
;-)

cindra said...

Holy cow! Lotta questions. That was fun. I quite like your crayon color and musical choices...you are an interesting human. I love scrubs. Haven't tried it in the tub...hmmm...

Trundling Grunt said...

I didn't realise you were from Napa - when did you move to MI?

Also, what did GM do with the Hungarian and the tomatoes (so to speak)? I have tons of Hungarians and am running out of the energy to freeze them so am keen for ideas.

TG-

Nothing major. Put powdered rosemary, thyme, salt, and pepper on boneless center cut pork chops and sauteed them in olive oil in a dutch oven for 3 min per side, and removed them. Then i seared garlic and onions in the oil, scraping fond. whizzed up 2.5 blenders full of our cherry tomatoes, dumped it in, along with diced hungarians and fine diced celery, 4 bay leaves and 4 sprigs of rosemary. Cooked with lid on for about 2 hours, extracting the water from the lid every time I stirred. Then I left the lid off and simmered for about 35 min to boil off more water. Fished out the bay leaves and rosemary, dumped the sauce over noodles, and served with the chops and italian bread rolls I made that day. It was OK, but was more proud of the rolls, actually.

Candace said...

Michael - I think an IKEA would have been more comfortable. Did they have those back then? ^_^

Tshsmom - The "no parking zone" is a great idea. I should try to get one big enough to cover my table! (and countertops, and - OKany flat surface! ^_^)

Kitkat - It's an outlash against blondes. You're right, there's no "poopy brown" or "rust-water red." ;-)

Dawn - that's definitely my favourite crayon. ^_^

Delton - yeah, I definitely changed more than I thought I would. Partly because it was no fun not typing something goofy. ^_^ Better a shout out than a shout at, eh? ;-)

Michael - oooh! Hooker red! Yeas, that's prbably a neighbouring colour! ^_^

Cindra - You should definitely scrub in the tub. It's good clean fun! And then you can move onto other things. Remember, nothing you do in the tub is dirty!

TG - I only lived there for 2 yrs, then Indiana (!! - Cicero) then Hong Kong, then WI, then CA (about 50 mins from where I was born) then WI again, and then here. We've been in MI for 4 years now. :)

MuNKi - You totally pwned those Hungarians! ^_^

egan said...

You amaze me.

Gawpo said...

Nutella? Isn't that that meat from those rodents that look like beavers, but with opossum tails?

Cool.

Gawpo said...

Delton? Isn't he that airline that competes with United?

Gawpo said...

Hey, I clicked on Delton and there ain't no blog on his profile page.
FTW?

Gawpo said...

You amaze Egan.

Delton said...

gawpo - On my profile page, under the contact section, there's a link to my blog. I'm not on blogger, so it doesn't show up in the list section. Or you could click on the link at the top of this post. Keep trying. You can find me. :)

egan said...

I hate a bunch of Nutella the other day and thought of you with every single bite. I hope you're happy. Don't ask.

Michael C said...

Where have you been? I need my daily fix? Oh, I know, you're busy listening to Barry Manilow's new 'Greatest Songs of the 70s' CD, aren't you?
:D

Candace said...

Egan - somehow I doubt it.

Gawpo - Not to be confused with Nutina!

Gawpier - I find it impressive that one man can give such heavy competition to a large corporation. :)

Gawpiest - I seriously doubt it.

Delton is in my sidebar, too, under "This Perplexing Life."

Delton - You're a mystery man of many - um - mysteries. ^_^

Egan - Awwww! Seriously? You thought about me while eating something? Wait. . . ^_^

Michael - I have been a bad Blogger - crazy busy and armed with too much knowledge of myself to let myself get online today. :-P I thought of putting on the Barry Manilow CD I got from the library for MuNKi, so that I could tell you I was listening as I typed, but I just couldn't bring myself to do it. ;-)

Michael C said...

Remember, it's always the thought that counts...
:D

Candace said...

Yeah, but sometimes the actual thing counts even more. ^_^ I have a book for you!

Michael C said...

Reeeeealllllly????
Now I'm giddy!!!

egan said...

The love fest...

Yes, that's what really did happen Candace and I'm not going in to more details.

Candace said...

Michael - Something's comin' up (comin' up)
Something's comin' up (comin' up)
Something's comin' up (really don't know what it is)
Something's comin' up (really don't know what it is)

But I know. ^_^

Egan - Oh my! ^_^ I'm buying more Nutella today. you can bet I'll be thinking of you. ^_^
