A 48 Things Meme


I found this on Facebook, and since I've been neglecting this poor blog, I figured it would make a decent post.

Feel free to do it if you want, but as usual, I'm not tagging anyone.

1. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE? In keeping with the Jewish tradition of naming children for deceased relatives, yes.

2. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED? Last night, watching Torchwood. That show is awesome when it comes to angst. So is Doctor Who.
3. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING? When I'm taking the time to be neat, yes. Most times, that's not the case.

4. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH MEAT? Hebrew National (That's a brand, if you don't know) Salami.

5. DO YOU HAVE KIDS? No.

6. IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON, WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU? Probably. We'd have the same interests, at any rate.

7. DO YOU USE SARCASM? Hell, sarcasm is my middle name. I was raised by sarcasts. It's my native tongue.

8. DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS? Nope. Those suckers were yanked out in a doctor's office when I was 5. Adenoids, too.

9. WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP? Not for all the chocolate in the world.

10. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CEREAL? Kellogg's Honey Smacks. Until I get bored with that, then Corn Pops, until I get bored with that. Also Rice Krispies.

11. DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF? Only the ones with laces, which are actually sneakers. Most of my shoes are slip-ons or have straps. I don't usually need to undo the straps.

12. CAN YOU SKATE? It's been so long, I probably would kill myself trying now.

13. WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE ICE CREAM? Chocolate. Chocolate Chocolate Chip is yummy. And Dark Chocolate from Haagen Dazs is wonderful.

14. WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE? Their face, I guess, or what they're wearing. Sometimes, it's their hair. Whatever is prominent, usually.

15. RED OR PINK? Neither, but if forced to choose, red.

16. WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVOURITE THING ABOUT YOURSELF? My stubbornness, maybe. And my annoying habit of obsessing over things.

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

18. DO YOU WANT EVERYONE TO COMPLETE THIS LIST? I don't care one way or the other.
