A Quiz.

(Stolen from my friend)

Grab the book nearest to you, turn to page 18, find line 4. Write down what it says.
Um, okay. I found Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe under my bed... "In the regular church services, his mother had been one of those women who who occasionally stand up and start babbling, out of her head, in an unkown tongue."

Stretch your left arm out as far as you can. What do you touch first?
A fan on the floor

What is the last thing you watched on TV?
A weight-loss related infomercial that sucked Ellie, her husband and me in, hard.

With the exception of the computer, what can you hear?
Not much, actually, my computer is really, really loud. Sometimes a car driving down the street.

When did you last step outside?
When I went to my car to look for my disc golf frisbees.

Before you came to this website, what did you look at?
who had updated recently
Before that, I was trying to catch up some on these past few weeks of television at TWoP.

What are you wearing?
A white cotton tank top, my cute jeans and red underwear. No make-up, very little jewelry, no shoes, no socks.

Did you dream last night?
I'm sure I did. I've already forgotten what I dreamt about.

When did you last laugh?
Last night while playing video games, for sure, although I'm sure I've read something online in the last few minutes that caused me to giggle.

What is on the walls of the room you are in?
Paint. Nothing else. I'm in my bedroom and the walls slope and let's face facts, there are no fewer than four packed boxes in this room and basically I really just haven't done shit in the ten months we've lived here to get settled in to this room.

Seen anything weird lately?
The strangest thing I've seen in awhile was some sort of pillow festival somewhere in Italy. I don't remember which town, we were driving by and we saw a fair of some sort, so we stopped. There were lots of children throwing bright colored throw pillows (hee) in the air to music. A huge crowd was watching and cheering. There were maybe three other booths, one from the public library and three selling food.

What do you think of this quiz?
I don't think I'm doing it justice.

What is the last movie you saw?
Women Loving Women, JV, Emma, Ellie and I watched it Friday night, it was JV's newest purchase. It was too much of just a clip show of 80s porn for my tastes.

If you became a multi-millionaire overnight, what would you buy first?
A house. A couch. Lots of stuff to spoil my family and my cat with.

Tell me something about you that I don't know.
Oh geez, um, I haven't washed my hair in eight or nine days, and no one else knew that (although at this point, you could probably guess).
Here's a cute one... when I was about eleven, almost overnight, both of my hips became covered in strech marks. Not knowing what they were, my sister, Shelly, freaked out as much as I did. We thought there were worms under my skin on my hips. I was so confused and scared that I didn't show my mom for what felt like months. When she finally saw them, she explained what had happened. It was quite a relief to learn that the marks were from growing and not parasites.

If you could change one thing about the world, regardless of guilt or politics, what would you do?
1) healthcare for everyone everywhere
2) I don't know, but if you gave me that power for a week or two, I promise I'd figure it out and it would be good.

Do you like to dance?
Very much so. Normally I dance like a Camp Girl, which one guy from camp described as "amoeba dancing". In Italy, Shelly and I suspect we scared some boys at a club by dancing with them maybe a little too explicitly...

Imagine your first child is a girl, what do you call her? Claire Elizabeth? Elizabeth Claire?

Imagine your first child is a boy, what do you call him? Hopefully his daddy's family has a name I can poach cause I have no idea.

Would you ever consider living abroad? I feel like that's what I'm doing right now... except I know the southwest isn't actually another country. Yeah, I would totally consider it, but I don't think I would go move to another country by myself if I didn't know anyone in my new hometown.
