Another Q and A Meme

Found this one on Chicken Fried Life, which is a fun blog, btw. The meme seemed to have a lot of questions I hadn't seen or answered before, so I figured I'd give it a try, despite there being so damned many of them.

Questions and Answers

Unique
1. Nervous habits? Habits, not necessarily nervous ones. I still play with my hair, even tho it's short now. I started twirling my hair in high school to help me quit biting my nails. It worked. I don't do the hair thing as much now. I probably do something else I'm not aware of.
2. Are you double jointed? No.
3. Can you roll your tongue? No.
4. Can you raise one eyebrow at a time? No, but I've never really tried.
5. Can you blow spit bubbles? Sometimes.
6. Can you cross your eyes? Not really. Not since the surgery, anyway, which was when I was 3.
7. Tattoos? No, though I have worn fake ones at times, in my 40s. I'm thinking it's time to do that again.
8. Piercing? No. I can't bear the thought of holes in my body I wasn't born with.
9. Do you make your bed daily? No. Not weekly, either.

Clothes
10. Which shoe goes on first? Usually, the left, but not always.
11. Speaking of shoes, have you ever thrown one at anyone? No.
12. On the average, how much money do you carry? I start with $80-$100 each week, then let it dwindle down til the next week when I refill my wallet.
13. What jewelry do you wear 24/7? None. I take my wedding ring off when I go to bed because my finger swells up when I sleep and the ring was impairing circulation.
14. Favorite piece of clothing? A pair of comfy jeans, tied with a couple of pairs of comfry shoes. And I'm very partial to a pair of cowboy boots.

Food
15. Do you twirl your spaghetti or cut it? It's sort of a semi-swirl.
16. Have you ever eaten Spam? Not to my knowledge.
17. Do you use extra salt on your food? No. I rarely add salt.
18. How many cereals in your cabinet? Probably 4 or 5 different types. Hubby is the real cereal eater. I'm down to the occasional bowl of Multi-Grain Cheerios.
19. What's your favorite beverage? Chocolate malteds. Otherwise, water.
20. What's your favorite fast food restaurant? I don't eat much at fast food places anymore, but MacDonald's is usually good.

Grooming
22. How often do you brush your teeth? Morning and night.
23. Hair drying method. Hair dryer.
24. Have you ever colored/highlighted your hair? I tried this back in the 70s. It got marginally lighter, the red henna didn't show, and no one noticed. I figured it wasn't worth the money.
