I took this survey during the commercials for The Office (because who wants to watch commercials???):
What were you doing at ten last night?
Sitting at my kitchen table doing research for a paper… so exciting. But before that, I did Sister Pedicure Night and then we went to church, so overall it was a pretty nice night!
Are you good at giving directions?
I am directionally challenged. It’s a real disability, I should be eligible for a scholarship.
Last time you cried really hard?
Last Christmas I watched PS, I Love You, and I cried some big, ugly tears. That movie is worse than The Notebook.
What is your favorite thing to eat with peanut butter?
Peanut butter cookies?
When did you get in your last argument?
I’m not confrontational. Sometimes I want to yell at someone, but I hold it back and just smile sweetly. Or stew.
Do you prefer hot or cold weather?
I love cold nights when I can curl up with my electric blanket and flannel sheets. I also have a “thing” for cute coats and fires in my fire place.
Could you go out in public looking like you do now?
My hair’s wet because I just got it cut, but that wouldn’t stop me. One of my favorite things to do is roll out of bed on a Saturday and run my errands early… which means no make-up, and sometimes I wear my pj’s. I may enjoy being girly, but I’m not very high-maintenance.
If you could go any place in the world where would you go?
Let’s see, Greece and Spain were at the top of my list, and I’ll be there next summer!
Have you ever made someone so mad that they broke something?
Again, not confrontational.
What is your favorite color?
Pink. I love anything that’s girly. I’m wearing pink right now, actually.
If you could go back in time, how far back would you go?
That’s an interesting question. There were times in my life that were a ton of fun, but not sure I want to go back to any particular time.
When is your bedtime?
Usually around 10:30 or 11, but lately I’ve been staying up later to do homework. Gosh, I’m sensing a theme. How boring! I’m not always such a dork, this is only temporary. My fun, adventurous self will reemerge as soon as I turn in my paper and prep for the class I have to teach as part of my graduate assistantship.
Are you quiet?
Only when I’m very, very tired.
Have you ever collapsed on the bathroom floor?
Two Christmases ago I got the stomach flu. The bathroom floor and I became good friends.
Do you like your music loud ?
Yes, especially when I run. And lately I’ve been rocking out to Ozzie and Metallica, Miley and Hanson… anything to distract me from the pain of running.
Would you rather stay home all day, or be out and about?
I love my house, but if I stayed home all day, I’d go nuts. I have to leave for at least a little while to accomplish something.
Last thing you purchased?
I paid way too much to get my hair done tonight, but some things are non-negotiable. I also bought some shoes today during my lunch break.
What’s your worst habit?
Sometimes I eat snacks late at night. Oprah says you shouldn’t eat after 7:00 p.m., but that’s just not realistic. Sometimes a girl needs freshly baked cookies or ice cream at 10:00 p.m., and that’s okay.
Plans for the upcoming weekend?
Besides massive amounts of homework? Saturday I’m going for a long run (10-12 miles), and I have a girls’ night out planned. Sunday I’ll have church, and hopefully I can squeeze in time for some flag football.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I’ll be 32. Other than that, it’s anybody’s guess.
Where are you at noon every day?
That’s one of the best things about my job… no two days are alike. Quite often I have luncheons and board meetings… other times I run to Chick-fil-a or Subway to grab a quick lunch and then head back to work.
How many speeding tickets have you gotten in the last 5 years?
Do you keep your closet organized?
It depends on your definition of organized.
What movie are you waiting to see in theaters?
There’s no movies I’m anxiously anticipating. However, I can’t wait to see the presidential debate tomorrow on TV! I guess that makes me a huge nerd.
What is your favorite drink?
Diet Coke & strawberry milkshakes. Hmmm… I wonder if Sonic is still open?
