PAIL Bloggers - 20 Questions


I haven't participated in a PAIL Blogger thread in a while (oh, I think before the Gall Bladder of Doom...), so thought this was a great way to re-introduce myself...

  1. What was the last thing you threw in the garbage/recycling?  McDonalds containers, empty diet coke can and a LOT of used tissues (home with two sick kids--who barely ate their chicken nuggets)
  2. What’s the #1 most played song on your iPod? Lately, that would be this song.  Been a bit under the weather and depressed lately--so that seems to match my feelings.
  3. What is your favorite quote? It would have to be Eddie Izzard...there are so many...but my favorite would probably be: "     I dislike this quoteI wanna live 'til I die, no more, no less." 
  4. What chore do you absolutely hate doing? Taking the clean dishes out of the dishwasher.  (I thought it would be dealing with the cat litter--but you know, I think I really hate doing the clean dishes out of the dishwasher more...)
  5. What is your favorite form of exercise? Using an ellipitcal machine!  Love those things!  (Wish I had one...)
  6. What is your favorite time of day/day of the week/month of the year?  Geez...this is a tough one, especially since I am home with sick kids today...  Time of the day: Late evening  Day of the Week: Saturday  Month of the Year: June.
  7. What is on your bedside table? A pair of jeans, some comic books, a throat drop, and a couple books.
  8. What is your favorite body part? Eyes.
  9. Would you use the power of invisibility for good or evil? Elaborate.  Oh, evil. Pure evil.  Cuz why the hell not?!  :-)  I would like to say that I am good at heart--which I am, generally.  But really--being invisible...I think that would give me a license to be bad.  (Its always the quiet loner types).  And what would I do...oh, like I would tell ya!  ;-)
  10. If you could choose to stay a certain age forever, what age would it be?  I think I would want to transfer that to be a certain "time" of our lives together.  And it would be summer 2 years ago. 
  11. What is the first thing you would do if you won the lottery? Pay off all our debt, pay off our mortgage and move.  (Oh and world peace and all that...)
  12. What is your biggest pet peeve?  People not RSVPing (formally or informally)
  13. If you could know the answer to any question, what would it be?  How to cure cancer.
  14. At what age did you become an adult?  I think around the time we bought our house...so about 28/29.
  15. Recommend a book, movie, or television show in three sentences or less. Avengers!  Excelsior!
  16. What did you do growing up that got you into trouble?  Think that I knew it all.
  17. What was the first album you bought with your own money? Thriller
  18. If someone wrote a book about you, what would be the title? My Boring Geek Life
  19. What story do you wish your family would stop telling about you? The time I was legimately upset that there were no candles on my birthday cake. (not bitter)
  20. True or false: The unicorn is the greatest mythical creature. State your case.  False.  While being a horse person growing up, unicorns did not fascinate me.  And while they are very interesting to read about, mythically speaking, I think you get more bang out of your mythical creatures with a Chimera.  And for gosh sakes, the last unicorn was voiced by Mia Farrow!  And couldn't fight a red bull!!

I hope the kiddos, and you, feel better soon!

And I'm right there with you on the RSVP's...why doesn't anyone respond anymore?!?

I like your answers too, especially about the movie choices.

Hope you and the kids start to feel a lot better!

Now, now, The Last Unicorn is an awesome movie. And the red bull ran away.

But chimeras are cool.

Oh... that song. That song is my go to sad song too.

The Last Unicorn EFFED me up as a kid. I internalized this random line about peeling potatoes and I think of it every time I peel them. Every. Time.
