By way of Lady Tam...

...Who opined that I was least likely to respond -- so, of course, I had to drop everything I was doing ...

WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE? Nope.

WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED? Umm ... not real certain, probably the last time I watched Old Yeller.

DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING? Not anymore. I've gotten sloppy.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH MEAT? Honey roasted turkey.

DO YOU HAVE KIDS? Not to the best of my knowledge.

IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU? I'm not sure. I can be a bit arrogant sometimes, and I hate that.

DO YOU USE SARCASM A LOT? Umm, no. D'oh!

DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS? Yes.

WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP? Again? Probably not.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CEREAL? Froot loops.

DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF? No, but I wear western boots a lot, so that probably doesn't' count.

DO YOU THINK YOU ARE STRONG? Yes.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ICE CREAM? Mint chocolate chip.

WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE? Hands, eyes and body language.

RED OR PINK? Purple.

WHAT IS THE LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT YOURSELF? The bloody spare tire that's ambushed me here in the last year or so.

WHO DO YOU MISS THE MOST? Two-Step, but I'm working on sight picture and trigger control to fix that little problem.

WHAT COLOR PANTS AND SHOES ARE YOU WEARING? Blue jeans and black ropers.

WHAT WAS THE LAST THING YOU ATE? Bowl of tortilla soup.

WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW? Gregorians version of 'My Immortal'.

IF YOU WHERE A CRAYON, WHAT COLOR WOULD YOU BE? Flesh. Duh.

FAVORITE SPORTS TO WATCH? Rugby.

HAIR COLOR[S]? Red.

EYE COLOR? Absinthe green

DO YOU WEAR CONTACTS? Used to.

LAST MOVIE YOU WATCHED? Pirates of the Caribbean III

WHAT COLOR SHIRT ARE YOU WEARING? Green.

SUMMER OR WINTER? Summer for bikini-spotting, spring or fall for weather.

FAVORITE SOUND[S]? Chuckling water, foxes calling, baby's laughter.

ROLLING STONES OR BEATLES? Neither.

WHAT IS THE FARTHEST YOU HAVE BEEN FROM HOME? Mentally, that would be the first morning of Basic Training. Physically, I've been on the side of the Earth exactly opposite home, so I've been as far as you can get without leaving atmosphere.

DO YOU HAVE A SPECIAL TALENT? Yes.

WHERE WERE YOU BORN? In a hospital.

WHOSE ANSWERS ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO GETTING BACK? Anybodies.

So I tend to lurk, but your ice cream answer drew me out :) Nice to know someone has excellent taste.

Did you catch the All Blacks vs. France Rugby game last weekend? I had tickets--completely awesome!

"Red or pink? Purple"

Very much so!

Holly o:) said...

Heheheh, I love your answer to "Hugs or Kisses"! I competely agree!

Kiki B. said...

"Baking bread, rose oil, jojoba, powder smoke."

Interesting potpourri fragrance. ;-)

farmgirl said...

Holly... I prefer to think that the proper answer to "Hugs or Kisses?" is "Yes please, and some chocolate syrup on the side."

But then.. thats me :D

Too bad Unique doesn't last long in the incense burner.
Stay away from Pyrodex pellets, too; they may look similar to incense blocks, but they don't work the same.

BryanP said...

Another Jim Butcher fan, eh? I've hooked 3 people on his books so far, and I keep pushing them. White Night is still on my to-be-acquired list.

I am curious about your take on Harry's realization that Morgan is the magical equivalent of a Good Cop who has burnt out from being constantly exposed to all that's bad in the world.

Diane said...

Sure - everyone will comment on 'Dog's answers, but no one has the courage to do it themselves? Hop over to my place (and Holly, you're next!)

Diane said...

OK, so my REAL blog doesn't show up on my profile? It's here.

Holly o:) said...

Farmgirl...I'm more of a caramel sauce girl myself, but I definitely agree with your idea!
And Diane, I'll get there...eventually!

A-a-a-and South Africa Springboks defeat the Australian Wallabies, 22-19.
Whoot!

Since it's Father's Day: "Do you have any kids?" Yes, and today he's 21. And he reads your blog. And he really likes the story when, about 30 years ago, I went home to spend the Father's Day weekend with my Mom and Dad. And found 7 or 8 anonymous Father's Day cards waiting for me. From all over the country. In different handwritings. Explain that to your Mom. Dad just went back in the pantry and laughed.

So 'Dog, Who are you tagging?

Geoff said...

I'm rather frightened by the number of answers we have in common were I to actually post the meme. Rest assured my girlfriend is going to mercilessly tease me about it once she reads your blog today. Dang, now I have a craving for mint chocolate chip ice cream while I read my Dresden and it's all your fault.

Rugby rugby rugby!

Lil said...

I just recently discovered Jim Butcher...it's a mixed blessing. Finding a new author with lots of books published that I haven't read yet? Yay -- but an expensive yay!

(I can never resist a silly questionnaire. Mine's here.)

Rebekah said...

I have never herd of anyone else who notices 'Hands'. I just thought I was weird.

Lies, lies, all lies and prevarications.
Yes, the Dog was named for someone: an ancestral name going back for several generations to the Scots side and also his grandfather's name, and another ancestral name going back to a totally enigmatic Englishman who was, among other things, an Indian trader back in the 1700s.

rebekah,
when you carry a gun as part of making your living you start noticing hands and eyes fairly quickly to assess what sumdood is likely to try next.
