For the Teabag in All of Us

Not that kind of teabag. Don't be gross.

If I go about this properly, the blog will (eventually) explain enough about me, so let me just explain the blog, or at least the title of it, here:

Stolen Tag

So, no one actually tagged me, and I don't know the girl who I totally swiped this taggy-type post from, or even recall how I wound up at her blog, but since I have nothing important or interesting to say lately, and the SFSG blog post is sorta depressing me, I've decided to pretend that I know her and pretend that she tagged me.

Now, because I most unceremoniously stole this tag, I can't very well tag others in good conscience. However, I do offer it up to anyone who wants to tag themselves, and absolve any that do so of any liability for larceny or theft of any kind.

You have $10 and need to buy snacks at a gas station; what do you buy? I'm not sure why I'm buying snacks at a gas station, or why I need $10 worth of snacks, but I probably buy cheez doodles (NOT cheetos), chocolate zingers and a whole bunch of peanut butter cups. Dammit, now I want zingers.

If you had to be reincarnated as some sort of sea dwelling creature, what would you be? A mermaid, duh. So all the boys would drown themselves in pursuit of me and my hair would always have that awesome flowy underwater look. And I'd NEVER have to blowdry again.

Who's your favorite redhead? I'm not sure I know any redheads. Umm, Ginger Spice? No, she's trashy. Uhhh... I dunno. Let me think on this one a while.

What do you order when you're at a pancake house? French toast with bacon and fruity topping.

Do you own any naughty toys? No. But the longer I remain single, the more I wish I had the cojones to go out and buy some.

Have you made out with anyone on your link list? I don't have a link list. So my secrets are safe.

Describe your favourite pair of underwear: Pretty white satin bikini ones with a lace back.

Describe the last time you were injured: I got a little too excited in step class and hyperextended my right hamstring. I was on crutches for weeks. That hurt like a motherfucker. Have not been to step class since!

Are there any odd things that make you feel comfortable? This is a very strange question. I guess it's odd that I keep a lot of my online ventures to myself, away from my "real-life" friends (which is not to say that just because one is online, one is escaping from real life, but rather that I have friends online who I've never met -- and likely will never meet -- in person, and I have friends that are local, whom I see regularly, law school mates, etc. Both groups are real people and real friends, but the realms are very separate). Anyway, I kind of like it that these online/offline boundaries exist.

Tell me a weird story from your high school years: I can pretty much pinpoint the onset of my asthma condition to a night in high school. We were drinking (as usual) at my house (as usual) and for some reason we were hanging out in the hay loft of the barn (quickie background -- when I was 13, my parents had a mid-life crisis and bought a farm in the Catskills where I went to high school. The day after graduation I returned to the city). I remember laughing my ass off at some nonsense or other, and having a coughing fit from breathing in the hay dust or whatever it's called. I could barely breathe -- Mom gave me a shot at her asthma pump thingy (I'm such a pathetic asthmatic -- it's only situational so I don't require frequent medication and I forget what the thingy is called). Anyway, I've been an asthmatic ever since, but it only flares up when I'm around cats, some dogs, lots of dust, certain air pollutants, etc. Definitely qualifies as a weird story, I think.

What is the wallpaper on your cellphone? A lipstick kiss print.

What is your favourite soda? Diet coke, with lemon -- but not the kind that comes with "lemon" in it -- that is some seriously nasty pseudo-lemony flavour that should be outlawed. Real lemon wedges squeezed into the glass and that I can poke with my straw for extra lemony goodness.

Flavor of pudding? I don't eat pudding, generally... but I guess chocolate's always a safe bet. Ooh also I had some caramel sticky pudding in London once, that was gorgeous.

What type of shirt are you wearing? A black Old Navy 3/4 sleeve cotton top with a lace-lined V-neck

Prescription medication? None, other than the asthma thingy that I never really take.

If you could use only one form of transportation for the rest of your life what would it be? I'd like to move back to a city where I could walk everywhere. I've gotten too sedentary in Florida.

How many people are on your links list? Zero, we've been through this.

How many people on your links list do you know in real life? Ok I'll stretch it a bit if you insist on perpetuating this line of questioning. IF I had a links list, Nat would be on it. I know her in real life. Thus, the answer is one. Or would be one.

What are you listening to right now? Nothing, the house is quiet. But on my way home from lunch with an old boss who's in town for a conference, I was listening to Better Than Ezra.

Most recent movie you watched? Memoirs of a Geisha. I knew the film could never compare to the book, but I thought it would at least be more cinematically pleasing -- but between the missing parts from the book and the not-that-fantastic cinematography, I'd hold out for the rental.

Name 5 things you have with you at all times: mobile phone, lip balm, mascara, debit card, and my wits (those are really something I have about me, but with me is close enough).

Would you rather give or receive a foot massage? Receive. I'm not too keen on touching a boy's feet.

Name a teacher you had the hots for: I had the most adorable math professor in college. That was one class I didn't miss too often. You can't seriously expect me to remember his name, though.

What is a saying that you use a lot? That is completely fucking retarded.

What's one piece of advice that you think should be passed on to every child? Don't eat the crayons.

Why do you suppose kids eat paste? Crayons I can sorta understand, because a) they're portable and b) sometimes they smell good. But paste? Unless it's somehow confused for marshmallow fluff....

no idea. i would so go to town on paste in like kindergarden and 1st grade..

and everyone at the table would. dab in the mouth, dab on the paper.

gross huh?!!

maybe that's why i'm slightly retarded ;)

Nothing wrong with eating paste and crayons. In fact, I think it's part of the kid diet. I think there's lots of protein in it. Isn't that the guy thing to say? Say protein like it's always good for you, it's manly even if you aren't a man. I know I hear it a lot in the gym, but I really have no idea what the hell they are talking about so I nod and then go lift. Reminds me of my sex life, when I had one...haha...

I used to like putting sand in my mouth...weird, I know.

And by the way, Butt, you don't really always get the thing with the fruity topping...last time it was eggs benedict and before that it was pancakes...and don't ask me why I remember. hehehe I want my motherfucking french toast...all I have to say.

Butt -- I DID get eggs benedict when we were in Perkins, huh. Well fine then!

Now I'm gonna have to order fruity topping next time so you don't make a liar out of me.

Elle -- it is gross. I'm picturing the dab in the mouth, dab on the paper, and it's SOO gross. But so funny.

Casually -- I'm not sure about the nutritional makeup of paste and crayons, but I'll go along with the protein thing if you want.

Sass -- dude, I used to eat play-doh all the time. Weird.

Heh. Kids will eat just anything. It's us grownups who have qualms with that ;)
(I'm on this low-Gi diet for health reasons, I've got loads of bottled anger about it :P)

This is an interesting meme, by the way... I love doing them - mostly on myspace & such, never in my own blog. I might try this one, actually ;)

I am looking at the low GI diet. Why the anger?

Blogger JMai said...

Anger because you're missing the best things like croissants and chocolate and such, most likely.

What is a meme?

Bunny -- feel free to tag yourself with it. I thought it was an interesting group of questions.
