Ask....and you shall receive! (Q & A post)

Bonnie posted this today and I thought it would be a fun change-up from my usual!  We will be back to our regularly scheduled "stuff" tomorrow.  :)  Enjoy!

1.  What is your occupation right now?
Well, if you use the definition of occupation as "way to earn a living" (dictionary.com), then I would say I deliver magazines.  That is one day a month, however, and the other 27-30 days per month are spent chasing four small children.  That is pretty "occupying".
2.  What color are your socks right now?
No socks on.  It's freakin' 90+ degrees outside! 
3.  What are you listening to right now?
Alice in Wonderland is on the television in the dining area, 92.9 is playing "She's Gone" on the radio in the kitchen, and Dora is playing in the living room.  I can honestly hear all of these things simultaneously.  Know what I don't hear?  Crying.  Yay!
4.  What was the last thing that you ate?
A bite of Zoe's pancake.  Oops!  She got the first one from the batch and I had to make sure they were good!  Nevermind that they taste the same every time...I make it from scratch, I have to taste.  :)
5.  Can you drive a stick shift?
Yes, and I prefer it.  However, we do not have any stick shift vehicles.

6.  Last person you spoke to on the phone?
Actually speaking was my grandfather last night, but I've been texting with Shannon all morning.  :) 
7.  Do you like the person you stole this blog from?
I don't guess I really know her in "real life" just yet, but I very much like what I know!  I do believe we would really be friends if we had met in any circumstances...our shared weight loss goals are just "icing on the cake".  So to speak. 

8.  How old are you today?

9.  What is your favorite sport to watch on tv?
Football, hands down.  Although, I will say here I love to watch sports.  I do not, however, LOVE them like my husband LOVES to watch them.  I didn't realize a person could be so excited to watch high school teams in a different state/country play rugby...all because there were no other sports on. 

10.  What is your favorite drink?
Water.  Reisling/Gewurtztraminer.  Bud Light.  In that order.  :)

11.  Have you ever dyed your hair?
I vaguely remember the first time I colored my hair...I'm pretty sure I was a junior in high school.  I haven't stopped since!

12.  Favorite food?
Cheese.  I realize that is really specific, but I love it...almost any kind, and almost on any thing.  Mmmmm.

13.  Last movie you watched?
Totally disregarding Ben 10 yesterday, which I didn't watch, but I was in the room.  Hall Pass with the hubs on Monday.

14.  Favorite day of the year?
Duh.  October 26th!  Happy birthday to me....

15.  How do you vent anger?
Poorly, I will say that much.  I'm a yeller.  And a screamer.  And a punch the air-er.

16.  What was your favorite toy as a child?
Books.  I am a life-long nerd.

17.  What is your favorite season?
Sweeps!  Just kidding.  Fall.

18.  Cherries or Blueberries?
Blueberries.  I do like cherries, too, though.  I'm just saying if I had to pick ONE.

19.  Do you want  your friends to blog this survey?
Yep.  Even if you don't currently write in a blog, I want you to start one simply to DO THIS SURVEY.

20.  Where is your favorite place to escape?
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha.  Like the key on the computer?  Escape?  No idea.  I guess I escape in the morning when I run between 1.5 and 2 miles away from my house...but I always come back.  "Mommy always comes back!"

21.  Favorite tv show?
Currently we regularly DVR Master Chef.  I prefer to read, but will watch Storage Wars, as well. 

22.  Living Arrangements?
Renting a house with my husband and aforementioned 4 children.  I have ZERO interest in ever owning a home, and we love our landlords, so this will likely be our forever living arrangement.  Not this house, specifically, though.

23.  When was the last time you cried?
Ha, ha, ha.  Saturday night/Early Sunday morning.  According to my husband I'm a "chick and chicks cry when they are drunk".  So, yeah, after a long night of drinks, I cried with my good friend.  It happens.  Oh, I also cried on Monday when I got very overwhelmed with my life!  So, I guess Monday is the right answer.

24.  What is on the floor of your closet?
Tons of clothes.  Mostly winter stuff and things that no longer fit. 

25.  Who is the friend you have had the longest?
MFHL     :)

26.  What did you do last night?
These questions are obviously for non-losers.  Let's see...I went to Wal-Mart and bought Zoe a tricycle and myself a blender (presents from my grandfather), then came home and got the kids all to bed...and subsequently CRASHED myself.  Yep, 9 pm.

27.  What are you most afraid of?
I guess "most" afraid is just the day I am going to have to deal with the death of a close loved one.  I've been quite lucky most of my life that this is one thing I haven't had to handle.

28.  Plain, cheese, or spicy hamburgers?
Cheese and ketchup! 

29.  Favorite dog breed?
None.  Boo to dogs.  Sorry, dog-lovers, I am a true cat person.  I do think Pomeranians and Pugs are cute, but only from afar.  Oh, and bulldogs!  Basically, I like pictures of dogs.

30.  Favorite day of the week?
Sunday.  Soon to be Tuesday and Thursday when school goes back in session!!

31.  How many states have you lived in?
This is tricky...I traveled for over 2 years with work and "lived" in several different states, but only for 6 weeks at a time.  NOT counting those, I have only had a home I paid for in 2 states.  Although, I went to college in a 3rd state, so I would answer 3.  However, if I do get to count the free apartments for 6 weeks at a time and my parent's house in Virginia (which I would stay in for long periods of time, but never actually felt like I lived there)...12.

32.  Diamonds or Pearls?
Sure!  This choice has, obviously, never been mine to make...I do like the look of pearls, but I think I would choose a shiny diamond? 

33.  What is your favorite flower?
Really?  I don't know.  I have a "black" thumb - as opposed to a "green" thumb.  Plants don't really like me...I guess I like sunflowers, though.  I have never chosen a "favorite".
