While sitting here sipping my cup of iced Haterade (which doesn't quite have the same effect as regular, albeit diluted, Gatorade has for running and such), I'm going to fill out the MeMe that Adam from Baking with Dynamite tagged me with. Hrmpf. And, my goodness, this is long!
1. Last Movie I Saw In A Movie Theater?
Oh, um, I remember seeing one... I think it was Hancock, the latest Willard Smith movie.
2. What Book Are You Reading?
Pandora's Keepers: Nine Men and the Atomic Bomb by Brian VanDeMark.
3. Favorite Board Game?
Ask my family, I HATE playing board games. I never really thought about why, but I do know why, I just refuse to tell you. Besides, "The only winning move is not to play." (Speaking of which, I'm going to see WarGames tomorrow at the theater!)
4. Favorite Magazine?
I used to like Runner's World, but all the articles became redundant because a) most of it was stuff I already knew, and b) I'm beginning to believe that the magazine is marketed towards beginner runners. I think Running Times magazine has better, in depth articles of use, not that I didn't get anything out of RW. (I think I just told you what magazine I dislike, not my favorite.)
5. Favorite Smells?
"Right before it starts to rain." That's what Adam said, and I agree. I just used a gift certificate at Bath & Body Works for a "fresh water" body spray. Also, outside smells after raining in the country, the aroma of bread baking, COFFEE!
6. Favorite Sounds?
The different sounds that my cats make, the running sound (feet against pavement), the sound a tennis ball makes when it comes in contact with a racquet, the sound of wind and the sound of the ocean/lake/river/you get the drift (the latter being ironic because I don't particularly care to go to the beach).
7. Worst Feeling In The World?
When I let myself down, which usually means I let someone else down, which probably means that I screwed something up.
8. First Thing You Think of When You Wake?
Whether or not to go running in the morning, or wait until the afternoon.
9. Favorite Fast Food Place?
I rarely eat at fast food places, but I make a chicken salad at Wendy's with their Caesar's side salad and chicken nuggets.
10. Future Child's Name?
After a character in Jurrasic Park, Roland sounded like a cool name (until I realized that a friend's name was actually Roland, but I never knew it because I was young and we called him by his nickname).
11. Finish This Statement—“If I Had a Lot of Money, I’d…
Turn myself into a countess à la The Count of Monte Cristo, minus the revenge stuff. I would still have a sidekick, though. Any offers?
12. Do You Drive Fast?
Michigan's speed limit on the highway is higher than Indiana's is!!!
13. Do You Sleep With a Stuffed Animal?
I used to, but now I just sleep with my cat. He's a live stuffed animal. Stuffed with bloody innards...
14. Storms—Cool or Scary?
I love a lightning storm!
15. What Was Your First Car?
Can't remember, but a future car won't be a Jetta VW, and sadly won't be a Land Rover unless I have money to spare after I become a countess.
16. Favorite Drink?
Coffee with milk foam, iced coffee, iced green tea with mint or raspberry with mint, tea smoothies, and soy milk "soft-serve" smoothies.
17. Finish This Statement—“If I Had the Time, I Would…
Run all day, 3 times a week, or drive to different states with awesome trails and go running.
18. Do You Eat the Stems on Broccoli?
Yes, I do. I don't often use it in stir-fries and stuff, but I cut the stems off and snack on them while cooking.
19. If You could Dye your Hair Any Other Color, What Would It Be?
I actually contemplated dying the underside of my hair red, but then I heard it fades quickly and you never really get rid of the red hue. Hm.
20. Name All the Different Cities In Which You Have Lived.
No way am I going to tell the lurkers that! But I was born in El Paso, TX.
21. Favorite Sport to Watch?
Volleyball. It's on again this weekend, too.
22. One Nice Thing About The Person Who Sent This To You
(Nice way to get a compliment, hehe!)
I don't really know Adam very well, and only through his blog, but I have good intuition about people and from what I've read, he seems like a great person to know 'cause he'd try to help anyway he could (judging solely by the informative posts he makes), and would be a fun person to be around.
23. What’s Under Your Bed?
24. Would You Like to Be Born As Yourself Again?
Is this question literal, or not? Literally speaking, I don't believe we are reincarnated. Figuratively, I'd like to be reborn as a Harvest Sprite.
25. Morning Person or Night Owl?
Quite the catch-22. I love being up very early when nobody else is around, and I like staying up really late when nobody else is around. The afternoon is a waste of the clock, like a void between when everything really begins. I wish I could be like Chuck Norris 'cause he doesn't sleep. He waits.
26. Over Easy or Sunny Side Up?
Sunny side up. But only one, since one is an odd number and two looks like eyes.
27. Favorite Place to Relax?
While running, actually, on a trail. With nobody around. Except for the Ents, but they don't count.
28. Favorite Ice Cream Flavor?
Häagen-Dazs Mango Sorbet.
29. Of All the People You Have Tagged, Who Is the Most Likely to Respond First?
I'm going to tag Chuck Norris, but he's busy so he won't be first.
1. Chuck Norris
2. Antics of a Cycling Cook
3. Olive Juice
4. Pittsburgh Needs Eated.
5. Veggie Girl
