...and then I promise I will finish up Liv's questions. I just spent the entire day with my sisters, one is Patrice, who lives out in the western part of our city where all the rich Republicans live and the other sister, Jessie, who is in town with her husband and daughter to buy her a new cheap "teen car."
All the family was assembled at Patrice's house since she has the pool and all and it is like hot enough to fry a chicken on the sidewalk.
I wore my new 1950's pale pink bathing suit. And with my white skin, I looked like a plucked chicken and then burned a deep shade of red.
This will look so very attractive tomorrow at work....
But, I am only a little tipsy after drinking two margaritas with no food except for two bites of my sister's hot dog. So..why the hell not...finish the meme and see if I check in tomorrow and am shocked at my drunken meme-ing.
61) Do you trust others easily?
Fuck no. Bing would be the first to tell you that I still have trouble trusting HER. Trust does not come easily for me. On the up side, I am not easily fooled. On the down side...I am sure that I missed out on some great friendships because I just am not one to share my secrets.
62) What was your favorite toy as a child?
Believe it or not, I ADORED my easy bake oven. The commercials made it look so EASY. In reality, I must have had a faulty oven because it would make one side of my pan burn to a crisp and the other stay nearly raw. And yes, I ate the frosting instead of putting it on the cake...so my bad.
63) How many numbers are in your mobile phone?
God...so many that I have no idea who some of these people are.
64) Do you use sarcasm?
65) Do you know anyone famous?
Yes. One of our dearest friends is a Grammy nominated jazz artist. She and Bing played in an all girl rock band when we were in college and now she has gone on to live in Manhattan and she goes out to dinner with Billy Joel and Bonnie Raitt on a regular basis. And she is MY age and looks so fucking gorgeous that I can only assume that she has had a LOT of cosmetic help. I love her to death. She has a terrible sailor's mouth and whenever she comes home, she takes Bing and me out for dinner and drinks and we always have a ball.
66)Have you ever been in a mosh pit?
Yes. And honestly, it is not nearly as fun as it looks. I remember being almost unbearably hot and there is always some guy with terrible breath or body odor who stands right up close and personal with you.
67) What do you look for in a place to live?
When I was younger, I looked for a cheap place. Now I love my house because it is very old and cozy. Built in 1918, she is a Victorian hussy with all the curly q's and iron fencing. And glass door knobs, hard maple floors and a thick clawed porcelain bathtub. We also have a toilet that is so old that it has a box on top of it with a string that you pull to flush. It will honestly flush anything and uses about twenty gallons of water a flush. I also love the old fashioned wall paper in my bedroom. It is original and is tiny rose buds. I excuse the fact that her wiring is so bad that you can't use the toaster when the dryer is on or it will blow a fuse. And we have no central air conditioning, just window units.
68) What are your nicknames?
Liv's father calls me Ice. Bing calls me Sugar foot. My bff, Harriet calls me Bad Ass. But, I have always wanted someone to call me Pixie. No idea why. And yes, I am kidding.
69) How many hats do you own? What is your hat size?
Not many. I have two gardening hats, a pink baseball cap from my Susan Koman Walk for the Cure, a really hot looking cloche hat and a long stocking winter hat that Bing calls my Dr. Seuss hat. I have no idea what size I wear.
70) Do you untie your shoes when you take them off?
No, but I wish I did. I often have to untie them to put them on and some mornings my fingers aren't working so well...
71) Were you upset about Steve Irwin dying?
Who the fuck is Steve Irwin?
72) What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
Lemon sorbet. I like peach too.
73)Are you lazy?
Not at all. I tend to work too hard, spend myself too freely.
74) What are your favorite songs at the moment?
I am missing Bing and my daughter, so...PAPERWEIGHT reminds me of Bing and LOVE OF MY LIFE reminds me of Liv.
75) What is your favorite band?
Hmmm. It is no secret that I would eat off of Lee DeWyze's shoes if he wanted me to. I also really am enjoying Mumford and Sons lately. And The Smiths. And The Decemberists. And I listened to the new Lady Gaga cd that Bing bought right before she left and I must say that she had my body swaying.
76) How many wisdom teeth do you have?
None. I had them ALL taken out at once when I was 25. I stupidly told my resident that I would be back to work in the afternoon and I was out like a light and drooling blood the entire day.
77) Do you want to go anywhere special this year?
Yes. I would like to go to Seattle to visit Sven if he would just let me. I also want to visit my old friend, Chloe in NYC and I have never, ever had a bad time visiting my friends, Vince and Thuan in Chicago.
78) What are you listening to right now?
Mumford and Sons.
79) Last thing you ate?
Two bites of my sister's hot dog. I wasn't hungry enough to eat a whole hot dog but knew that since I was drinking, I needed to eat something, so I snitched two bites of her dog.
80) Last person you talked to on the phone?
My sister, Patrice. She told me to stop and pick up relish on my way over to her house.
81) What is the first thing that you notice about yourself in the morning?
That I desperately need to put my eye gel on. The gel that takes the bags out from under my eyes...
82) Favorite thought provoking song?
Chapman's FAST CAR. It tells this incredible story.
83) Favorite two things to hate?
Women who talk incessantly about their boyfriends and The Westboro Clan.
84) Favorite Drink?
Chai tea or coffee. For an alcoholic drink, I ADORE appletinis.
85) Favorite Zodiac sign?
I don't really believe in them, but I used to do natal charts for extra cash in college. Kind of like I don't really believe in tarot cards but used to do readings for extra cash in college too. And I was remarkably good at it but I think this had more to do with my adeptness at reading body language. I am an Aquarian, Bing is a Virgo and Liv is a Leo, so we have interesting mix.
86) Sports you like to watch?
I LOVE College football. Especially my Cornhuskers. We have season tickets and try to go to every home game. And yes, we all wear red. We are die hard Husker fans.
87) What is your hair color?
It used to be brown. Now it is more gray than brown.
88) Eye color?
89) Do you wear glasses?
I have worn glasses since I was 4 years old. And I tried to wear contacts and HATED them. Could not stand to put things in my eye. So, now I have several frames: cat eye frames, John Lennon frames, Harry Potter frames,dark green frames, horn rimmed frames and confetti frames.
Three sisters. Two older. One younger.
91) Favorite month?
October. I love the colors of Autumn and it is FOOTBALL SEASON!!
92) Do you like sushi?
HATE it. I dislike ALL fish except for tuna.
93) Last thing you watched on television?
Hmm..okay. This is going to sound terrible. Last night I was up late and channel surfing and stumbled on this horrible porn movie on Cinemax. Since it was Cinemax, it was not hard core porn, just a really, really idiotic plot (three couples are out camping and one couple gets kidnapped by some crazy mutant sex crazed huge breasted women...I am not kidding...their breasts looked like bouncing bowling balls and one of the women kept saying, "I want to lay on the herrth with you and make you happy." I could not figure out what the hell she meant until I realized that she meant HEARTH but hey, who cares when you have breasts that are so stuffed with silicone that they bounce like super balls when you pretend to be fucking some guy who looks like he is 20 years older than you?) and finally I just could not stand to hear this guy pretending to NOT want to fuck because "it's too soon...we just did it!" when I knew that soon he would be behind her like a big dog with his bitch and she would have her mouth open wide while her breasts bounced crazily and he kept humping and grimacing. So..I turned it to a documentary on New York City.
94) Favorite day of the year?
Thanksgiving.Best food EVER. And my sister is a gourmet cook and we go to her house for dinner every year.
95) Are you too shy to ask someone out?
Interesting. No, I don't think I would be, but the truth is that I have never done the asking. I have always been the recipient.
96) Summer or Winter?
Neither. Spring or Fall is fine, though.
97) Kisses or hugs?
Depends on who we are talking about. But, in general, hugs. I really, really HATE tongue baths.
98) Relationships or One night stands?
Honestly? I am better suited to a one night stand, but since I am in a relationship, I admit to rather liking belonging to someone and having her belong to me. Never, ever thought I would say that, but there you go. I am domesticated.
99) Who is your favorite celebrity?
It changes depending on my mood. I like Lee DeWyze, Johnny Depp, Chloe Svegny, Laura Dern, Laura Linney, Jon Bon Jovi and Jimmy Fallon.
100) Books you'd like to see turned into a film?
Anything by Jonathan Tropper.
And I am out of here to go shower and watch the MTV awards and maybe have a pop tart.
And try to get to bed early since 6 a.m. is going to come SO SO quickly tomorrow.
