Meme Monday - 40 Odd Things

I first saw this fun little meme on Lee Ann's blog and I thought I'd give it a go!  Enjoy.

1. Do you like bleu cheese?
Not at all.  I don't like the flavor and just the thought of eating something moldy grossed me out.

2. Have you ever smoked?
Unfortunately I can't because I don't own a smokehouse.  Wouldn't it be cool to smoke and cure your own bacon though?

3. Do you own a gun?
No and I don't want to.

4. Favorite type of Food?
That's easy, Junk Food!!  Just kidding . . . . kind of.  Anyway, although I'm a very picky eater, I  think I like all types of food.  Just not everything those types have to offer!

5. Favorite type of music?
I'm a Classic Rock girl at heart.  The other day, I pulled out four CDs for a road-trip with Pete, and without looking he could name three of them.  Eric Clapton, The Beatles and Sting.  I guess I'm predictable.  (The fourth was The Eagles.)

6. What do you think of hot dogs?
I love them.  But if I really think about them, they gross me out.

7. Favorite Christmas movie?
I don't think I have one.  Maybe The Grinch?  The old cartoon one - although I don't suppose that counts as a movie.
***** ETA: OMG, duh, major brain blip!!!  How could I have forgotten my all-time favorite Christmas movie, A Christmas Story??????   Can't wait for TBS to run it for 24 hours straight!!*****

8. What do you prefer to drink in the morning?
COFFEE - the stronger, the better!!

9. Can you do push ups?
Yes, but only the cheater bent-knee variety.

10. What’s your favorite piece of jewelry?
I have several and I wear them every day.  First, my engagement and  wedding rings.  Second, the emerald pendant Pete bought me on our honeymoon.  And lastly, the *cough* - small,  I could use a larger pair, Sweetpea - *cough cough* diamond earrings he bought me for our second Christmas together.

11. Favorite hobby?
Okay, do I really need to answer this one?  Can't you all guess by now?  Stamp collecting.  Hahaha, kidding - it's knitting, of course!!

12. Do you have A. D. D.?
Well, I think . . . oooooo, look, something shiny!!  Errr, umm,  what were you asking?

13. Do you wear glasses/contacts?
Yes.  I got my first pair of glasses in the Fifth grade and I've been wearing contacts since High School.

14. Middle name?
Like the vast majority of the female population, my middle name is Ann.

15. Name 3 thoughts at this exact moment:
I wish I had more coffee.  I'm hungry.  Look how cute my little cat is.

16. Name 3 drinks you regularly drink:
Coffee. Pete's Pomegranate Cosmos.  Water.

17. Current worry?
I'll never figure out what I want to do as a job.

18. Current hate right now?
Snow - and I have a feeling we'll be seeing a lot of it in New England this winter.

19. Favorite place to be?
Where ever my husband is!!

20. How did you bring in the new year?
At our friend's Bob and Barb's house.  Just like I have for almost all of the past 20+ years.  The parties aren't as wild as they were 20 years ago, but they are still just as fun!

21. Someplace you’d like to go?
I'm dying to go to Italy one day.  And Russia too.  I'm always ready for another cruise.  I'd also love to go back to San Diego and Key West.

22. Name three people who will complete this.
Who knows . . . . probably the three people most desperate for blog content.

23. Do you own slippers?
Yup, my favorites right now are the felted slippers I made for me and Pete last year.

24. What color shirt are you wearing?

25. Do you like sleeping on satin sheets?
I don't know but they seem like they'd be really cold.  I love my flannel sheets.

26. Can you whistle?
Not really.

27. Where are you now?
On the couch with my lap-top.

28. Would you be a pirate?
No, probably not.  They seem really dirty and smelly and I think their ships had rats.  Yuck.

29. What songs do you sing in the shower?
I don't think I sing any.  But I always sing along with the radio when I drive!

30. Favorite Girl’s Name?

31. Favorite boy’s name?

32. What is in your pocket right now?
Nothing, I checked.

33. Last thing that made you laugh?
The Daily Show and The Cobert Report.  John and Stephen are always good for a laugh-fest!!

A 1994 Honda Civic.  It's long past time for a new car, and I'd like another Civic.

35. Worst injury you’ve ever had?
I've never done anything too bad, which is amazing considering how uncoordinated I am.  I've broken my little toe and sprained my wrist - not at the same time though.

36. Do you love where you live?
Yes and No.  I love my house.  I like my town.  I wish my neighborhood was a little bit better.  I hate a few of my neighbors and that our houses are sqeezed in so closely together.

37. How many TVs do you have in your house?
Two that are hooked up and working.  And one more that is just sitting in our spare room.

38. How many computers do you have in your house?
Pete has his desktop.  I have my new laptop.  We also still have my old, slow laptop but we don't use it.

39. If you changed your job, what would it be?
You are kidding, right?  Did you read my answer to #17??  I've been out of work and pondering that question for years.  I have no clue.

40. If you were granted three wishes, what would they be?
A cure for diabetes.  Enough money to never have to think about money again.  True happiness.

    And if you ever get all that money, I'm totally tagging along on your vacations... well, maybe I'll skip Russia because that's too far from the equator for my liking!

    Yay, for meme Monday!!
