Okay, I'll Play

I’ve been tagged several times now and it’s starting to sting! I figure I better hurry up and play. The rules say you’re supposed to tag eight more people, but I’m cheating and only tagging five, ‘cause I don’t know anyone else who hasn’t played already. Blog referees, don’t go crying foul or anything – I’m just not that popular, okay! I’ll tag Robyn, LW, Green Girl, Sara, and Suzie.
Now for the questions:

1. What are your nicknames? They need too much explanation, but my brothers sometimes call me Thunder.
2. What game show and/or reality show would you like to be on? None! They’re meant to make you look like an idiot, and I don’t need help for that. I am good at Wheel of Fortune, though.
3. What was the first movie you bought in VHS or DVD? Heathers, maybe? I can’t remember. 4. What is your favorite scent? Fresh cut limes
5. If you had a million dollars that you could only spend on yourself, what would you do with it? Buy a house with a bigger yard, so I wouldn’t have to play fetch with the dog in the living room.
6. What one place have you visited that you can't forget and want to go back to? Lots, but Paris is top on the list.
7. Do you trust easily? I’m pretty suspicious when someone tells me over the phone, “I’m not trying to sell you anything, Ma’am…”
8. Do you think before you act, or act before you think? I think about some dumb little things way too much before acting, but not everything.
9. Is there anything that has made you unhappy these days? There is a new rash of graffiti in our neighborhood that doesn’t bode well for our community – that’s one thing that’s been bugging me.
10. Do you have a good body image? It depends on what angle I'm looking at.
11. What is your favorite fruit? Strawberries, mangoes, raspberries…I can’t pick a favorite, but now I want a smoothie.
12. What websites do you visit daily? Verla Kay's
13. What have you been seriously addicted to lately? Coffee, blogging, and I’m waiting for Lost to come back on.
14. What kind of person do you think the person who tagged you is? Carrie, Brenda, Kim – I’ll bet they are great to hang out with on a girl’s night out. I’m thinking there might be pie-eating involved, and maybe margaritas.
15. What's the last song that got stuck in your head? The Name Game, using Obama’s name ‘cause that’s the birthday card I got for my daughter. Then Carrie used it in her post and it got stuck in my head all over again.
16. What's your favorite item of clothing? A 1950’s red cocktail dress that belonged to my mother.
17. Do you think Rice Krispies are yummy? They’re okay when they’re imbedded in chocolate.
18. What would you do if you saw $100 lying on the ground? Assuming no one was screaming “Oh, no, I just dropped $100!” I’d pocket it and do an internal happy dance.
19. What items could you not go without during the day? Coffee, body lotion, a toothbrush. I’m not that attached to gadgets, but when my kids get home and take over my laptop I get a little bristly.
20. What should you be doing right now? It’s the weekend, so buying groceries or making lunch, but my husband volunteered to go to MacDonald’s.

How to play: If you've been tagged, post your own answers to the questions on your blog. Tag eight other people, and add links to the blogs of the person who tagged you and the people you tagged.

Carrie, don't worry - we've been singing it for weeks and still find it amusing...

Rena said...

I liked reading your answers. I posed mine on my Multiply blog. I don't know the blueboarders too well yet, so this game has been fun to get to know them better. :)

Kelly said...

I love that you have your mom's cocktail dress! I bet it is beautiful!

Kim Kasch said...

Definitely margaritas!!

Green Girl in Wisconsin said...

I'll play--fun questions. I've learned quite a lot about you today:)

adrienne said...

Louise, Green Girl - glad you'll play!

Rena - I liked your post. Blue suede boots, very cool!

Kelly - I've even worn it a few's kind of Audrey Hepburn-ish.
Thanks for visiting my blog!

Kim - Just a hunch ;)
