I couldn’t find too many old surveys when I started this little series — so this week marks the halfway point. I’m sure you’ll all be crying yourselves to sleep tonight…
Original Post Date: April 5, 2008
(2008 status — playing the field, but dating a guy named Mike, who is not the Mike I married. We call him Old Mike, because he was around before Husbang Mike, and also because he was old. At least, old for me. But that’s mainly because I’m statistically a cradle robber — a trait I no doubt got from my faja.)
Who are you in love with?
(Can you tell this was right in the middle of my uber-confident, I’m skinny, lots of dates phase…)
Have you ever eaten a crayon?
I think I’ve eaten one of everything at this point.
(Definitely by now. With the exception of most vegetables.)
Is there anything pink within 10 feet of you?
Ironically, a crayon. Maybe I’ll eat it.
(I didn’t. I don’t think.)
When is the last time you went to the mall?
Last week. I needed birthday presents. And clothes for myself, apparently.
Are you wearing socks right now?
I am, and slippers, because the basement is cold.
(I spent a lot of time in my basement back then — because that’s where the laptop was. And I couldn’t move it.)
Do you have a car worth over $2,000?
Yes. I’m a grownup.
(I still have the same car. I’m not sure if I can still make the same claim. Mike makes fun of my car a lot — it’s little, and Japanese, and not a fast as his. But he also admits that it’s reliable, and nothing ever breaks — unlike the Saab.)
When was the last time you drove out of town?
When Kelly & I went to see Josh & John. And the Spice Girls.
(1. The Spice Girls are amazing. 2. So are Josh & John. 3. So are the boots I bought the day after the concert before we drove home.)
Have you been to the movies in the last five days?
No. Let’s go. Right now.
(Seriously, I love the movies. I can’t wait for The Help to come out.
Or Harry Potter. OMG, come on, July.
Or The Hunger Games. (For which, there is no official trailer — just creepy fanmade ones.)
And while we’re on the subject of movies — I finally got around to watching Sex and The City 2 yesterday, and it was one of the worst things I’ve ever seen. First of all, 90% of the clothes were hideous. And am I supposed to feel bad for Charlotte, who spent six years crying over not having babies — because now she HAS babies, and no job, and a full-time live-in Nanny? Also who bakes cupcakes and uses food dye wearing white vintage Valentino? No one. No, sorry — no sympathy here. And the crazy back-alley burka bookclub/secret fashion show? Come on. Oh, and “Lawrence of My-Labia?” Cue eye rolling. As far as I’m concerned, we could have just stopped after the best Gay Wedding, ever.)
Are you hot?
I’m hotter than liquid-hot magma.
What was the last thing you had to drink?
Diet coke, which is why I’m wide awake right now.
(Coke Zero. I love it. When I get pregnant and have to give up caffeine, I might murder someone.)
What are you wearing right now?
Well, socks and slippers. And jeans. And a shirt.
Do you wash your car or let the car wash do it?
I let mother nature do it.
(Also still true.)
Last food that you ate?
Crabby pretzel, and it was delicious.
(Crab pretzels ARE delicious. I just had one on Faja’s Day. And now I want another one.)
Where were you last week at this time?
I was at Pazur Palooza, drunk-texting, stealing stranger’s hats, and kissing Kristina.
(This is almost exactly like the last time I saw Kristina — only without the texting, and stealing. But there were brownies.)
Have you bought any clothing items in the last week?
Yes, I bought a bazillion shirts yesterday, because I needed something cute and didn’t feel like doing laundry.
(I’m so lazy.)
When is the last time you ran?
Probably the last time my life was in danger.
(See? I told you so.)
What’s the last sporting event you watched?
I watched the basketball games tonight.
(The other day I watched some tennis while I was waiting at the doctor’s office. But really, we just watch football in our house — and aside from driving, it’s the only time you’ll ever see or hear Mike raise his voice. Husbang looooves football.)
What is your favorite animal?
Penquins. And puppies. And prairie dogs.
(Yes, yes and yes.)
Your dream vacation?
A free week somewhere beachy with Kristina & Matt.
(Also still true, but we can add Mike to the list of invitees. Also, Kejulie. And Evan.)
Last person’s house you were in?
My own. And before that, um, Megan’s, I think.
(I used to spend a lot of time at Megan’s — 1) her mother always has chips and peanuts, and iced tea. 2) they took pity on me and let me sleep on their floor in the middle of summer when I didn’t have any AC. 3) Megan loves me — especially if someone has wronged her, because I will say horrible things about them.)
Worst injury you’ve ever had?
That time I got punched in the baby-maker.
(Update — that time I filleted my finger while making my wedding invitations… I was making the belly bands for our invitations — Mike was away watching his parent’s dog for a few days, and I figured, “how hard can it be to use an xacto knife and a ruler?!” Turns out? Pretty hard. Eight stitches and a lot of blood later, I’ve learned from my mistakes. Also, I know my tetanus shots are up-to-date. I also got to sit in the ER waiting room for four hours in the middle of an H1N1 outbreak.)
Have you been in love?
I love you, survey.
Do you miss anyone right now?
Really just your dad.
Last play you saw?
A Perfect Ganesh.
(One of Matt’s plays. And the beginning of the end of the guy I was dating at the time. I felt like he cried too much. A little crying? Sure, go ahead. But there’s a maximum amount of crying I want to see on a date. And he exceeded it.)
What is your secret weapon to lure in the opposite sex?
Booze & my boobs. But seriously – booze. And my boobs. And throwing stars.
(Totally worked on Mike.)
Next trip you are going to take?
NYC with Matty.
(Matt & I spent a few days eating too much, and shopping too much. It was delicious. Remember how I was skinny, and then I wasn’t? This was the beginning of the end. I had the Katie Couric, and he had the Aretha Franklin. And we totally ate all of it.)
Ever go to camp?
Basketball camp. I remember being really excited about being able to drink Mountain Dew for breakfast. See? I was a badass when I was 11.
Were you an honor roll student in school?
Of course I was. I’m brilliant.
What do you want to know about the future?
I wouldn’t mind a list of winning lottery tickets. Or a sports almanac, like in Back to the Future 2. Although, that sort of backfired on Marty. Stupid Biff.
(Honest to god — I made a reference to that sports almanac a week ago.)
Are you wearing any perfume or cologne?
DKNY Be Delicious. And I am. Being Delicious.
Where is your best friend?
They’re both probably sleeping…
How is your best friend?
Gah! Sleepy. God, survey.
Do you collect anything?
Mostly virginities. And that’s not even a joke.
(It was a joke.)
Who is the biggest gossiper you know?
My grandmother. She’s really good at it. Also, um, me, because it’s genetic.
Do you like hot sauce?
Yes. On your dad’s nipples.
Last time you took a shower?
Today. With your dad.
Do you need to do laundry?
Yes, as I’ve resorted to buying new clothes so I have something to wear out of the house.
What is your heritage?
My mom’s side is mostly competitive & hilarious, while my dad’s is strong & tall. Oh, and Lithuanian. I’m told that’s where my temper comes from…
