36 ODD things about you!

(I keep reading that as OCD and it keeps confusing me.)

1. Do you like blue cheese? No
2. Have you ever smoked cigarettes? For much of my youth, which I regret terribly
3. Do you own a gun? Yes
4. What flavor Kool-Aid? Pink Lemonade or blue
5. Do you get nervous before a Dr Appt? Not for MDs, but every time for DDS
6. What do you think of hot dogs? Slather mayo on the bun and cover it in sauerkraut and they're wonderful.
7. Favorite Movie? I'd need categories. The first that comes to mind is Galaxy Quest, but that's probably because it was on tv recently. Guardians of the Galaxy, The Thing, The Star Trek reboots...
8. What do you prefer to drink in the morning? Tea or Diet Coke
9. Can you do a push up? Not very well
10. What's your favorite piece of jewelry? I don't really wear jewelry. I have a few necklaces I favor, but I guess I'd have to say my engagement ring.
11. Do you have a favorite hobby? photography, sewing
12. Do you have A.D.D.? Nope
13. Do you wear glasses? No
14. Who was your childhood idol? Barbara Hambly who wrote Dragonsbane. As an early teen I thought this book was the penultimate example of story telling.
15. Name 3 thoughts at this moment... I need milk, but don't want to get dressed. Pilsbury needs to SHUT UP. It's not time for him to eat yet. Is Erik jumping on the couch? Yeah, I think he is.
16. Name three things you drink regularly. Tea, diet coke, water
17. Current worries: Getting the boys back to a normal sleeping pattern so they'll get up and not be too cranky Thursday morning when school starts back
18. Current hates: Hates? Ignorance I suppose.
19. Favorite place to be? Home. Covered up with animals and kids.
20. How do you bring in the New Year? Asleep Haha
21. Where would you like to go? Scotland
22. Name 5 people that will do this questionnaire.
a)This is dumb. Why do questionnaires always put this in there?
23. Do you own slippers? yes. Pink bunny ones.
24. What color shirt are you in? gray
25. Do you like sleeping in satin sheets? I did as a teenager. Now I just prefer really soft cotton ones.
26. Can you whistle? not well
27. Where are you now? kitchen
28. Would you be a pirate? I'd rather be a ninja
29. What song do you sing in the shower? I ... haven't sung in the shower in a while, come to think of it.
30. Favorite sports team? University of Alabama Football (Roll Tide!)
31. Favorite food? sushi and mexican
32. What's in your pocket? I'm in my pajamas, which sadly have no pockets.
33. The last thing that made you laugh? The boys being silly
34. What's your favorite animal? Wolf
35. Worst injury? Messed my knee up but good a long time ago. It still hurts. I break my pinky toe on a fairly regular basis (always the right one. What's up with that?). Probably my "worst" injury is my broken brain. Migraines, Depression, my brain is a bitch.
36. How many TV's in your house? In my house? Technically two. But one is in the basement and hasn't been used in several years and we should probably get rid of it.
wolffe: (Default)
1. Eggnog or Hot Chocolate? Hot chocolate. With marshmallows, of course.

2. Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree? Depends. If they're small, they're wrapped. Otherwise they're just sitting out.

3. Colored lights on tree/house or white? White this year, but we usually do colored lights too.

4. Do you hang mistletoe? Not for a long time.

5. When do you put up your decorations? About the second week of Dec. We always get a live tree and I don't want it to die before Christmas.

6. What is your favorite holiday dish? Probably Grandma Kelly's coconut cake. I'm not sure I'm making it this year though.

7. Favorite Holiday memory as a child. Mom and I had this tradition of "stealing" our xmas tree every year from the boy scout troop lot down the street from our house. We were poor, and couldn't afford a tree, so we went xmas eve and picked the best one left. They were all free at that point, but it was more fun to say we were stealing it.

8. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa? I can't remember, but I still believe Santa exists in everyone's heart who makes an effort.

9. Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve? No, but I'm liking the idea of getting the family holiday PJs and opening those on xmas eve to wear xmas day.

10. How do you decorate your Christmas Tree? All ornaments. We don't have any balls on the tree this year. Partly because I'm afraid Jake will break one and get hurt, and partly because we have enough ornaments to not need any.

11. Snow! Love it or Dread it? A bit of both. If I don't have to go out in it except to play? Love it. Of course, snow here means it lasts a day or two and then goes away. If it were a months long on the ground type of thing I wouldn't be happy.

12. Can you ice skate? I've never tried.

13. Do you remember your favorite gift? No. I tend to remember spending time with the family instead of specific gifts. Cheesy, I know, but true.

14. What’s the most important thing about the Holidays for you? Spending time with my family.

15. What is your favorite Holiday Dessert? Grandma Kelly's coconut cake is in a tie with my Mom's oatmeal raisin cookies. Course I can't really have either of those this year what with the gestational diabetes and all.

16. What is your favorite holiday tradition? Giving "Gibson gifts". My uncle Gibson was quite... unique ... and would give us strange but fun gifts every year. I've tried to keep that tradition alive with small things in our stockings.

17. What tops your tree? A silver filigree cut metal star.

18. Which do you prefer giving or receiving? Money is tight like it is for everybody so I stress that my gifts aren't good enough, but I still prefer to give.

19. What is your favorite Christmas Song? Fa la la la la, la la la fuck. Um, but seriously I don't really have one.

20. Candy Canes? Not unless they're the hershey's kisses kind. Or stuck in a cupcake. Don't get me wrong, I eat them, I'm just not a huge fan.

21. Do you feel Christmas is too commercialized? Yes. I think advertising and media put so much pressure on everyone to spend, spend, spend and find the perfect gift that it moves us away from just getting together and having fun.

22. Real tree or artificial? Real. Always.

23. Do you put lights up on the outside of your house? No, but Jason does. ;) We have two lighted deer (and if I could afford it I'd have a whole herd in the yard) and we put the big, fat C7 lights around the door.

24. Do you do a Christmas Dinner or Supper and who cooks? We do a combined dinner/supper. We eat around 3. Jason and I cook. We make his Italian Grandma's spaghetti and meatballs. Yum.

25. Is your family the everyone unwraps gifts at once sort or do you do it one gift at a time as the others watch? One at a time. We never have that many gifts to go through, so going one at a time makes it last longer.

26. Do your pets share in the festivities? Yep! They each have their own stocking. I always get them some new toys. Tiger would always get a bone.

fun!

I'm running Ubuntu 9.10. I LOVE IT. OMG, seriously, this OS rocks. It's smokin' fast and it just works. <3

More questions from the question meme, this time from [livejournal.com profile] heinous_bitca

1) Is there anything you miss by not working outside of your home?

Not one single thing. I thought about it too, but nope. I just wasn't built to work outside the home.

2) (stealing this from the one I asked Marz) Were you always a crafty person? Say even in high school, did you have the urge to make/craft/work on something, or is this a newly-acquired habit?

I've always been this way. I used to draw more, and actually considered a fine art degree at one point but decided I really wanted to be a Marine Biologist. When that didn't pan out (turns out I'm not so good with the chemistry) I fell back on art, in a way and got an English degree. My family are all very artistic in one way or another though. My Mom is a painter/illustrator, my brother is a musician and I'm the writer. Writing is actually my love but I don't have the time or head space for it right now. So I sew and take pictures. :)

3) We both have equestrian backgrounds. Wish you still actively rode? Will you teach Jake to ride?

Every single day I wish I was riding. *sigh* I live now in an area that has a lot of barns, and the board is very reasonable at some but even then I don't have the money to support Zane up here. I haven't ridden since I got pregnant for one reason or another but I miss it greatly. I keep my ears open for an instructor I can take lessons with, but haven't found one who teaches the style I prefer and whom I can afford. Jake has already been on the back of a horse. ;) If he wants to learn, I will certainly teach him. I would love it if at least one of my kids shared that passion with me, but I won't push it.

4) Do you think you'll be back in WoW for Cataclysm? What do you miss most about playing?

Yes, I'll be back. I can't resist the lure of playing Worgen. One of the things that made me hesitant about putting Ubuntu on my laptop was whether I would be able to play WoW. We researched it and yes, it runs very well. :D And I just got an email from Blizzard giving me 10 free days of WotLK. I'm debating whether to use it or just wait for Cataclysm. I miss you guys the most. Remembering the social interaction during the halcyon days of DotA still makes me smile. It'll never be the same of course, since that core group is scattered over several servers now, but it's still fun. The map of Azeroth (pre burning crusade) is framed on the wall in front of my computer. :)

5) (also stealing this from something I asked others!) I'm coming to visit you! What will your Southern Hospitality show me?

Oh my. Lots. I will ply you with sweet tea and Cracker Barrel biscuits with sawmill gravy. You will be amazed at how Southerners fry everything (even peanuts). It's mostly about the food down here. ;) I can show you towns that revolve around the summer strawberry festival or the fall pig roast.

questions from [livejournal.com profile] marz

1. How did you come up with the idea for making loveys?

My Mom had latch hooked me a tiger rug when I was a baby and I wanted something similar for my kid(s). I couldn't find a latch hook kit, so I decided to sew a Tiger skin rug, which was the first thing I did. It came out good, but big of course. So I decided to make it smaller so he could carry it around. At the time I was also thinking of getting him a taggie, and had a eureka moment to put the two together. I loved the end result (still do) and each one I sew makes me happy. :)

2. How many kids would you like to have and why?

Ideally, two. I want a girl. If I have a boy next, we'll go for three. I'm not sure I'll go for four if I still haven't had a girl.

3. How do you feel about Worgen being Alliance?

Ecstatic. They probably should be Horde, even though they kind of got screwed over. But I just like Alliance better. Don't get me wrong, I was loving my cows and orc before I left, but I'll always have a special affinity for Alliance.

4. What kind of music (or artist/band) do you enjoy the most?

I guess that would be alternative. The real stuff, from the 80's. The Replacements are my favorite band. But I listen to everything except rap.

5. I'm a Fairy Godmother! What do you wish for?

To have a smooth time at the festival on Saturday.

Ask me to take a picture of any aspect of my life that you're interested in - it can be anything from the house I live in to my favorite shoes. Leave your choice here as a comment, and I will reciprocate by taking the pictures and posting them as an LJ entry. That way you get to know a little bit about my life, if you're remotely interested in it.

I've been meaning to take more pictures so this is a good excuse!

If you saw me in a police car, what would you think I got arrested for? Answer me, then if you want, post to your own journal and see how many crimes you get accused of.
