MEME, It's All About ME

1. Who is the last person you held hands with?
My sweetie, of course

2. If you were drafted into a war, would you survive?
Nope, not a chance. I don’t take orders well, especially if they are yelled at me like they are in basic training.

3. Have you ever drank milk out of the carton?
Ashamed to say I have and do. (And shouldn’t that be “drunk”?)

4.Have you ever won a spelling bee?
Are you kidding? But I can conjugate the verb “drink.”

5. How fast can you type?
Like the wind, baby. Um, do you mean accurately? Not so fast, then.

6. Are you afraid of the dark?
Nope. Unless of course I start to think about that play I saw about an old guy telling a young guy about this ghost who appears to people whose family she is going to kill and the young guy sees this woman in white, but when he mentions it to the old guy, he tells the young guy that he didn’t see any woman in white and that was the ghost! Well hell. Now I have to sleep with the light on again.

7. What is your eye color?

8. When is the last time you chose a bath over a shower?
I’m lucky enough to have one of those whirlpool tubs, so it’s been recent, I just don’t remember when. Guess it wasn’t that recent.

9. Do you knock on wood?
Yeah. I need all the help I can get.

10. Are you drinking anything right now?
Nope, but I just finished a Skinny Dip—New Belgium Brewery’s summer seasonal.

11. Can you hoola hoop?
That takes waaaaaaay too much coordination. And my hips just don’t seem to move that well any more. Maybe I should take a belly dancing class?

12. Are you good at keeping secrets?
Yes, except for that thing that Jay did…wait…I can’t tell you about that.

13. What do you want for Christmas?
For my mom or brother to win the PowerBall, assuming of course they’ll take care of me for the rest of my life. Otherwise, I want world peace.

14. Do you talk in your sleep?
So I’ve been told.

15. Who wrote the book of love?
Those people who wrote the Kama Sutra

16. Have you ever flown a kite?
Yes. Great. Now I’m going to sing that song from Mary Poppins (Let’s go fly a kite . . .)

17. Do you consider yourself successful?
Any day that I don’t end up in a padded room trying to spell my name with a crayon between my toes is a successful day.

18. How many people are on your contact list of your cell?
3—my home, my hubby’s cell, my mom. I have a small but tight circle.

19. Have you ever asked for a pony?
Yep but Mom always said no, as she should have. But she gave me a stuffed horse instead!

20. Plans for tomorrow?
Gym, quilt group and picking up prescriptions. Busy day for Kell!

21. Missing someone now?
Lots of people.

22. How are you feeling today?
Well, today was pretty good. Temp in the low 60s, skies blue, good hair day, didn’t end up in a padded room trying to spell my name with a crayon between my toes …

23, 23???

24. Are you black?

Let’s see. When I drink red wine or workout, I’m red. When I have the flue, I’m pasty white. When I was a teenager and laid out at the pool, I was dark brown. And when I’m happy, I’m just peachy.

25, 25?

26. What are you looking forward to?
My trip to Scotland in March.

27. Have you ever crawled through a window?
OK! I’m sorry! I thought the keys to the house where in my purse. Geez, give a girl a break.

28. Can you handle the truth?
No. Lie to me, please lie to me.

29. Do you like green eggs and ham?
I do not like them in a boat, I do not like them with a goat. It kind of scares me that that’s the only line I remember from that book.

30. What three things do you always bring with you to places?
A wallet, a book, and lipstick

31. Any cool scars?
It’s not really that cool, but I have a scar under my right knee, but I don’t really remember what from because I was so young.

32. Do you like or have a crush on anyone?
Oh, not really. They’re more like obsessions.

33. How many kids do you plan on having?
None. I think that boat has sailed. Looking for four-legged furry ones now.

34. What do you do when no one is watching?
Well, if I told you that, I couldn’t do it when no one is watching because you’d always be looking at me to see if I’m doing it.

35. Have you ever been in love?
Have and are.

36. Do you talk to yourself?
Of course, but it’s usually in the form of a sigh and an exasperated “Kell!” followed by me having to fix something I did wrong.

37. Is there something you want that you do not have?
I’m sure there is, but I can’t think of anything right now. Although I’m sure it’s sparkly.

38. Who are you thinking about right now?
Santa Claus because you just asked if there’s something I want and I remembered that I have to make some kind of list for my family for Christmas, but I have to do it soon because nobody likes to go shopping after Thanksgiving but me. Wimps.

39. Who did you last hug?
My hubby. He’s just so huggable.

40. Where is your phone?
Wait, I have to hit that page button so it’ll beep . . . it’s on the kitchen island.

41. What is the last movie you watched?
Split Second, a not-so-good-but-I-kept-watching-anyway movie with Clive Owen.

42. What song do you currently hear?
The Good Eats theme because that’s what I’m watching right now.

43. What do you want?
See #37.

44. Would you ever date anyone on your friends list?
OK, I don’t really understand this question. Are you talking about someone that my friend would want to date and I date him instead, or are you talking about the Friends TV show where they talked about their list? Doesn’t matter either way because I’m married, and I don’t think he’d like it if I went out with someone else. He’s funny that way.

Kell, that scar under your knee: You fell on some glass. See, I remember all your boo-boos.

saz said...

Ann Angel - Samba Lays...what a combo! I love it that you Betty and Jay want something good for eachother (#13) - you three are such a sweet family.

Kell said...

Saz--Santa is watching--I have to be good!

Jay said...

I can't decide if I'm going to call you "Tippy Q" or "K-Jo" from now on. I think I like "Tippy Q". Best.

Gary James said...

Excellent. You're very good at these

Where in Scotland are you going? It's beautiful, a vary varied and fascinating country.

Newt said...

First, I knew I liked you. We are both Jo's in the middle.
And secondly:
"17. Do you consider yourself successful?
Any day that I don’t end up in a padded room trying to spell my name with a crayon between my toes is a successful day."
You are TOOOOO funny! But I wish you could see the crayon drawing I did yesterday :-)

17. Do you consider yourself successful?
Any day that I don’t end up in a padded room trying to spell my name with a crayon between my toes is a successful day.

OMG! This is a GREAT definition of success. I'm going to borrow it, k?

Green Sheep? ROTFLMAO!

Considering our Star Wars names both begin with Pat... I'm starting to wonder if we share a surname. Wouldn't that be cool?

Kell said...

Jay--That's "Oh Great One" to you, mister.

Gary--Thanks! I'm going to post more about it later, but it's the GDT (great distillery tour). Off the top of my head, we're arriving in Edinburgh, driving over and taking the ferry to Islay, then up to Inverness for the whisky up there, then over to Royal Deeside, then back down to Edinburgh to pick up Glenturret and have dinner with the Roayl Scotch Society, or something like that. Hubby's the scotch drinker, I'm there for the countryside.

Newt--You don't know how long it has taken me to get used to Jo. If your first name was Kelley and you grew up watching Petitcoat Junction, you'd have a hard time, too. But I like to think of myself more of the Little Women "Jo."

Chelle--Take it, it's yours. And if your last name is the same as a famous American general, we just might be related!
