Another Meme. I Stole it From Beck. I know. You are Shocked.

1. The phone rings. Who will it be? Most likely some member of my family. Less likely my brother than the others, but you never know. My most recent conversation with him lasted 48 seconds and involved hard-boiling an egg. He's not much of a phone man.

2. When shopping at the grocery store, do you return your cart? I now try to shop at Co-op where the very nice man takes my groceries to the car, puts them in the car and then takes the cart back and doesn't want a tip. IT'S LOVELY.

3. In a social setting, are you more of a talker or a listener? That would involve being a social setting. Can't say I do that much any more.

4. Do you take compliments well? I had a roommate who criticized the way I took compliments. She also criticized the way I did my hair, the way I talked, the way I cleaned, etc, so I didn't take it all that seriously. I think I do, and no one else has seen fit to say anything, so short story long, yes I do.

5. Do you play Sudoku? It involves math. The idea of doing something with math for fun puzzles me. In my opinion, Sduko people are actually a wee bit weird.

6. If abandoned alone in the wilderness, would you survive? You bet. If by wilderness you mean a Motel Six with a limited continental breakfast. Otherwise, probably not.

7. Did you ever go to camp as a kid? Yep. Learned all KINDS of new words.

8. What was your favorite game as a kid? The one where everyone went away and let me read in peace.

9. If a sexy person was pursuing you, but you knew he was married, would you? Ummm, I'm sorry, could you repeat the question? I was laughing too hard after hearing sexy person pursuing me. Cause that's gonna happen right after pigs sprout wings and McDonald's fries become a healthy choice.

10. Could you date someone with different religious beliefs than you? Nope, I'm married. It's best I not date at all.

11. Do you like to pursue or be pursued? I'd prefer avoiding running altogether thankyouverymuch.

12. Use three words to describe yourself? Not too shabby.

13. Do any songs make you cry? Opening a Kleenex box can make me cry. Any sappy song can reduce me to a weepy mess faster than you can say Christmas Shoes.

14. Are you continuing your education? I really have no idea at this point in time. I'd like to say something philosophical about the whole lifelong learner stuff, but I spend my day with small children and big ideas are now far beyond me.

15. Do you know how to shoot a gun? Heavens no. What kind of a fool would give this klutz a gun?

16. Have you ever taken pictures in a photo booth? Yep. Every single youthgroup trip to West Ed Mall would not have been complete without all the girls squeezing themselves into one of those booths.

17. How often do you read books? That's like asking "how often do you breath?"

18. Do you think more about the past, present or future? I'm thinking this is one of those big idea questions. I honestly have no idea. I think about slushies.

19. What is your favorite children’s book? I could not possibly narrow it down to one. But I know for sure, it is not Walter the Farting Dog.

20.What color are your eyes? Blue.

21. How tall are you? If I am standing really tall I am 5' 2".

22. Where is your dream house located? Wherever my three men are.

23. If your house was on fire, what are the first things you grab? The boys, the phone and I'd make sure Way Cooler knew about the need to evacuate. He 's too tall to carry.

24. When was the last time you were at Olive Garden? Last week. ON A DATE. For Never-Ending Pasta Bowl. It just doesn't get better than that.

25. Where was the furthest place you traveled today? An over-priced kids consignment store.

26. Do you like mustard? On a smokie with sauerkraut. Otherwise, meh.

Okay, Sudoku? Very fun. Math? Very fun. Right? Right?

I would also totally not survive in the wilderness. My husband has a SAS Survival Guide, and the situations they describe are terrifying enough. Like, if you are lost in the middle of the ocean, try to catch vomit in your hand and throw it far away from you, lest a shark catch the scent and kill you.

I'm with you on the Sudoku thing... seriously why would I stress my poor little brain to relax!?!

RE: Olive Garden. I haven't been there in forever... yummy salad. Hmmm.

I disagree with you on the sudoku only on the premise that it is counting. And I am much better at sudoku than I am the crossword - I have a chance at finishing sudoku.

That said, how on earth did you steal my answers to 8, 17 and 19? They were still in my head! And I think 8 is still one of my favorite games but my kids aren't so fond of it.

I did this one too but haven't posted it yet. I think I'll do that right now. Since I've got nothing new to post otherwise....

Sudoku isn't math. No math involved. I HATE math, but I love Sudoku, which is about logic. You could use nine shapes or nine letters or nine colors, and the principle would still be the same.

Now, is it weird to do a logic puzzle to relax? Probably, but I came to terms with being a weirdo a long time ago. :)
