Random Facts About Me

This is a list of questions that migrated from Facebook to Word Press to share a little insight into who you are.   Not an award, no rules, just 23 questions.

Here we go…

  1. Do you make your bed every morning?

Yes, kind of… I sleep in my recliner so if I use a blanket I fold it up.

  1. What was your first car?

The first car I drove was a HUGE station wagon, whose size terrified me.  The first car I bought was a Chevy Chevette.

  1. What two grocery items do you never run out of?

Coffee and toilet paper

  1. At what age did you start doing your laundry?

Laundry was my sister’s  chore and had got to do the dishes.  So about the time she moved out I had to take if over… probably 16 years old.

  1. If you could, would you go back to high school?

The learning part of high school I didn’t mind.  The clichés and bullies were what would leave me saying no way.

  1. Can you parallel park in under three moves?

NOPE!  I hate parallel parking and avoid it like the plague.

  1. A job you had which people would be shocked to know you once had?

I was a paper carrier for the local Tribune for about 2 years.

  1. Do you think aliens are real?

It would be arrogant of us to assume we are the only life force in the entire universe.  And there are too many unexplained things in the world.

  1. Can you drive a stick shift?

No, can’t do that either.  My ex-husband tried to teach me in his Triumph Spitfire and I could not get the hang of it.  My daughter can.

  1. Guilty TV pleasure?

There is really not a lot I watch no matter what.  Don’t record any shows on a regular basis.  I would say the soap opera The Bold and the Beautiful.  Like any soap though you can miss a week and still know what is going on as slow as some story lines run.

  1. Tattoos?

Technically three… two are just radiation field dots (to like up the radiation treatment machine to the right place every time they zapped me.  The other is one I got after my ten year survival from breast cancer.

  1. If the world ends do you want to be one of survivors?

If there CAN be survivors… I assume the question is more like would you live on a space station.  And it would be better than standing on a planet that no longer sustains life.

  1. Sweet or salty?

Definitely sweet, got a huge sweet tooth.

  1. Do you enjoy soaking in a nice hot bath?

Being of a certain size, I don’t fit well into a tub.  And if I am going to be in one I want everything (except my head obviously) under water.  Going on a little get away with a private whirlpool I plan to use for a good soaking.

  1. Do you consider yourself a strong person?

No, but my therapist keeps telling me I am.  Still don’t believe it.

  1. Something people do that drives you nuts?

Don’t put carts back… in the store, in the parking lot.  And when they get them close but don’t take the LITTLE effort it takes to push them in.  Really bugs me!

  1. Do you have any birthmarks?

A mole on my chin and a birthmark on my arm that is like a brown rectangle.

  1. Favorite childhood game?

Used to play tag a lot. Loved legos and Barbies.  In my teen years the Atari was all the rage.

  1. Do you talk to yourself?

Who do you think is asking me these questions?

  1. Do you like doing jigsaw puzzles?

Yes.  I used to do puzzles with my Dad… one of many things I really miss.

  1. Tea or coffee?

Both, but I suppose coffee is number one.  Do love a good chai tea though.

  1. First thing you remember wanting to be when you grew up?

A movie star/singer.

  1. Favorite game now?

Just one?  Right now I play a lot of Words With Friends, spend some time running a virtual bakery in Bakery Story and Animal Crossing Pocket Camp – all on my phone.  But love the card game Shanghai Rummy too.

Ok… now it is your turn.  Join in the fun a share a little about you.
