The 'Oh My' Meme

Greetings Humble Readers... I hope the second day of summer is treating you well! 

The wonderful Kristin over at Dragondreamer's Lair posted this, and I couldn't resist.  I'm a sucker for the random trivia stuff...

1. The phone rings; who don't you want it to be? Work... I hate getting calls from work on my day off, because I know it's not going to end up being a day off.
2. When shopping at the grocery store, do you return your cart? At the grocery store, absolutely.  At Costco, I admit I don't always.

3. In a social setting, are you more of a talker or a listener? Like my short-statured, hairy toed, hobbit cousins, I tend to be on the shy side, so listening is more my style.

4. What was the last compliment that someone gave you? My Beloved tells me I'm beautiful every day... but he's just after me for my cooking.

5. Do you play the lottery? Every once in a while, but pretty rarely.

6. If abandoned alone in the wilderness, who would you want with you? Dumbledore!  Then he could apparate us back to civilization.

7. Do you like to ride horses? Nope.  I was kicked when I was 13 or so, and since then I have been particularly nervous around them.

8. Did you ever go to camp as a kid? Once, I went to Circle Square Ranch.  Which is particularly ironic considering number 7.

9. What is your favorite party game? Things In A Box... the funniest game I have ever played.  Dutch Blitz is a close second.

10. If a sexy person was pursuing you, but you knew he/she was married, would you go for it? Not a chance!

11. When was the last time that you lied? There is a white lie I tell fairly regularly when I open the store.  We 'have to' answer the phone before we open just in case it's a staff member calling in sick or someone from head office.  But if it's a customer I tell them that we don't open until 10 and our computers aren't up and running until then. 

12. Could you date someone with different religious beliefs than you? I don't think so.  It's important to me to be able to worship with my husband. 

13. If you have a S/O, who pursued who? If not, do you like to pursue or be pursued? A little of both.  He contacted me first (on eHar.mony) but shortly after he closed the match, and I went after him. :)

14. Use six words to describe yourself. Creative, faithful, loyal, shy, quiet, helpful

15. Name a song that could make you cry? It's an old one, but it gets me every time... "Dance Little Jean" by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band.  I bawl every time I hear it.

16. Are you pleased with your education? Yes, certainly, even though I don't use it in my professional life any more.

17. How do you feel about gun control? I could get some flack for saying so, I don't see the need to own a gun. 

18. If your house was on fire, what thing would be the first thing you grabbed? Provided that my family is out and safe, then I would probably go for the pictures and my heirloom violin.

19. How often do you have a romantic weekend? ummmm... married people do that?

20. Do you think more about the past, present or future? it varies day to day, but I wish I could live more in the moment.

21. What was the last adult magazine that you have read? People actually 'read' those magazines?  I know I peaked through one when I was in highschool

22. What are you told about your eyes? that they would look so much prettier if I wore contacts

23. How tall is just right? I always wanted to be 5'5'' but I never got there.  But I think my Beloved is perfect at 6'3''

24. Where is your dream house located? I don't know for sure.  Somewhere with lots of trees, hills, and water somewhere near by, but still within easy reach of a metropolitan area.

25. Do you have a secret fetish? If I did, I don't think I would admit it here... lol

26. Have you tried bourbon? If yes, what type? not that I know of

27. Have you ever seen a male or female stripper? Yes, a very long time ago

28. When was the last time you were at TGI Fridays? Last fall, in the Newark airport when we were on our way home from NYC.

29. When was the last time you were at Church? Sunday morning

30. Where was the furthest place you traveled today? My chiropractor's office downtown.

31. What was your favorite job? I love my current job, but I really enjoyed working for my college way back when.  I worked the front desk, and during the summer it really was a lot of fun.

32. What condiments do you like at your BBQ? Grainy mustard, steak sauce, pickles, onions

33. Do you look like your mom or dad? both!  From the nose down, I'm my mom (or her side of the family), and eyes up I look like my dad.

34. Who was the last person that you showered with (it's okay to leave out the name)? My Beloved


  1. We LOVE Things in a Box!! It is the best game ever! We've had some pretty fun game nights playing it. :)

  2. How fun. I love these type quizzes.

Hobbits are social creatures, and love hearing from friends old and new. Pull up a comfy chair and let's get to know one another.
