A meme from Dawn

Here's another meme I found at Dawn's journal.

edited 5:50PM - Oops! I have been informed that I missed two answers. I intended to come back to those later, and publish this entry after dinner, but accidentally published it immediately. That's what happens when you rush through something on your lunch hour.

Your best friend tells you she is pregnant. What is your reaction? "I thought you had your tubes tied, Honey."

When is the last time you wanted to punch someone in their face? So long ago I can't remember.

What is the last thing you spent money on? Coffee and a muffin.

Do you think you gained or lost weight this past month?
No idea. I never weigh myself. Probably gained, though. That seems to be the general trend these years.

Crunchy or Puffy Cheetos?
No Cheetos. I'm more of a chips guy.

Congratulations! You just had a son. What's his name? Beowulf! No, maybe not. Our child having days are long over, so I haven't thought about new baby names for years. I'm all out of practice. I'll have to give this one a pass.

Congratulations! You just had a daughter. What's her name? Well, we had a girl's name all picked out for if we had a daughter, but never had to use it, so I'll give you Branwyn Marie. (My Mother-in-law has never been able to pronounce that, so it's probably for the best that there wasn't a girl.) We never did decide on whether to spell it Branwyn, or Branwen, or Bronwen.

What are you craving right now? Heh. Nevermind. Next question?

What was the last thing you cried about? Probably the last time I watched ET, or readThe Fionaver Tapestry. A while ago, I guess.

When you buy something and your change is 2 cents, do you keep it or tell the cashier to keep it? Sometimes I keep it, and sometimes I leave it. I don't think there's any conscious criteria for my decision.

What color is your tissue box? My tissue box? Well, the nearest tissue box to me is kind light bluey, with purple flower petals on it, but I wouldn't really call it my tissue box.

Do you have a ceiling fan in your room, and if so, is there dust on that fan? There's a ceiling fan in our dining room. It gets dusted at least once a week, so I'm gonna say no. 

Scariest thing you've experienced in the last year? Yeah, all of you are right. I was pretty confident that things would go well with the wife's surgery, but deep down inside, that fear was there.

Do you wear a name tag at work? Yes. Mr. Ho, the manager of the Kwik-E-Mart keeps telling me he's going to get me one with my name imprinted on it, but it hasn't happened yet. Until it does, I'll keep wearing the one I found in the back room that has the name Raoul on it.

Have you ever had a garage sale? No. The previous owners of the house must have sold the garage before we moved in. We've had yard sales, though.

What color is your iPod? They come in colours?

What is the last alcoholic beverage you had? Ryan Coke.

Are you happy right now? Sure.

Who came over last? Who came over last? What are you, twelve? Nevermind, you probably are. (No, not you, gentlereader. The person who wrote this quiz.) So, uh, I guess it was my parents, and my Brother-in-law and his family. We celebrated Easter, and Matthew's fourteenth birthday Saturday night.

Do you drink beer? Yes.

Have your brothers or sisters ever told you that you were adopted? No. Sounds like something I might have said to my sister when I was being petty and spiteful, but I can't remember if I ever did.

What is your favorite key on your key chain? People have favourite keys on their keychains? Doesn't that seem a little...odd to you?

What was the last movie you watched at home? We're currently watching the new Battlestar Galactica TV series on DVD, but that's not what you asked, is it? The last movie we watched would have been Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship Of The Ring when Matthew was home sick a couple of weeks ago.

What is in your pocket? A toonie.

Where do you hurt? Oh, the knees are a little sore right now.

Has someone ever made you a Build-A-Bear? Um, no.

What's something fun you did today? Well, I got up, had a shower, and went to work. Now I'm home. I guess the funnest thing I did so far was listening to my new iPod in my car during the drive. Woo hoo!

What is your favorite aisle at Wal-Mart? People have favourite aisles at Wal-Mart? Doesn't that seem a little...pathetic to you? I don't even go to Wal-Mart. If I did, that would have been the scariest thing.

When is your birthday? Last month. You missed it!

Is there anything hanging from your rear view mirror? No.

What kind of milk do you drink?

What is something you need to go shopping for?

I like the name Bronwyn. I've only met one...she was in prison at the time.

Hey, you missed the scariest thing in the past year question, but I'm betting it was your wife's kidney op. She's a brave one!

And...nothing FUN today? Nah, me neither.

LOL  I love when you do a meme.  You did skip scariest... and I agree with Cin... had to be Pat's surgery, I imagine.  Every day you have to have fun...

Loved the craving answer... every 8 seconds right?

be well,

You skipped scariest, as already mentioned, and you also skipped "something fun you did today".  For the second one you can't say "this meme" because that's the obvious answer.  I can tell how much fun it is for you just by your tone of voice!

I also really like how your tone connotes a hint of condescension, even though it's a totally voluntary quiz.  That's so you.

LOL... That's true Simian... but it's why I LOVE when Paul does a meme!

be well,

YOU... ARE...  A... LIAR!!!

I've been to your house and while I can attest to the fact that the garage is gone (possibly sold by the previous owner)...



grwighter said...

No Brent he is not a liar, I was there Saturday and it is gone!

 I said we had a yard sale. I did not indicate that anyone had actually bought it. Perhaps we were asking too much. Or perhaps lack of free delivery service was a problem. In any case, my fiendish plot to get out of mowing the lawn appears to have failed.

Thank you for filling in the blanks you had left previously.  The empty places in my heart feel much better.


princesssaurora said...

Ahh... your sense of completion necessity is commendable!  LOL  Thank you, again!

be well,
