(Just a Common Merganser out on the lake.)
My friend and sister both posted these in their blogs, so I figured I'd do it too! An alphabet of questions.
Available or married?
I don't understand the question.
Chore I hate?
Okay I'm going to try and get over the fact that these have question marks when many need colons instead. I don't feel like fixing them, but I do feel like criticizing them. Anyway, I hate doing the dishes, yet it's the chore I do the most, and the one that makes me feel the best when it's done. I'm going to marry a man who will do dishes if I cook.
Drink of choice?
I love iced tea and Coke Zero (cherry and vanilla versions are good too!). I drink too much soda. But I do drink water, and because of its health benefits, I really do like it even if it tastes like invisible.
Essential start to my day?
I don't really get this question, either, but I will say that I usually give myself a little time to check on some of my phone games and email each morning to help me wake up a little before getting out of bed. I really hate that most of my days begin with waking up before I'm ready. Anything to ease the transition.
Game to play or watch?
Oh I love games. My favorite card game is probably Cribbage, but I also like Spades, Gin, word games of all sorts and even some video games (like tower defense and city building). I play games practically every day.
I consider Yuba City, CA my hometown since I lived there the longest and because it's where my parents (and lots of family friends) still live.
Instruments I play?
None. I took piano for a few years as an adult, but I can barely play the first few measures of Für Elise at this point.
I don't have any, and I don't have a strong desire to have any.
Life is incomplete without...
...ends to sentences.
Music group or singer?
Boring question! Or "question," I should say. Lately I like Colbie Caillat and Rihanna. I'm super deep.
Number of siblings?
Two, plus a brother-in-law.
Oranges or Apples?
Do you really want to open this can of peeve worms? I could have an entire blog (not a post, a blog) on pet peeves. I'm a delightful person.
"Mr. Reynolds? 'Scuse me, but there's something going on in the sculpture class. I think you oughtta check it out."
Reasons to smile?
It's currently winter in my hemisphere.
There are tons when you're searching for something unrelated in Google Images.
I like how it's singular.. oh you silly question! I went to two colleges and two universities. I'm like a school gypsy. I graduated from CSU Sacramento.
Veggies I dislike?
Peas! I want them discontinued. There are a few others.
What makes me run late?
X-rays I've had?
Teeth, back, ankle and finger.
Oh gosh, I like all of the delicious foods that most people like, such as ice cream and cheeseburgers and vanilla bean cheesecake.
Zoo favorite animal?
Oh hey, Yoda. Hm.. I don't know. I like seeing peacocks at the zoo. I always liked elephants growing up. Giraffes are funny with their long, black tongues. Koalas and bats are nice.
