Long Pointless Mishmash Survey

I found this on Ramblings of An Ever Hungry Mind:

What were you doing this morning at 8 a.m.?
Thinking “do I really have to get up?”

What were you doing 15 minutes ago?
Searching through my work email to see if I had one on file from 2005 that would prove we had invoiced them.

Are you any good at math?
I’m okay at basic math.

Your prom night?
We didn’t have one, there were only 32 people in my grade.

Do you have any famous ancestors?

I’m distantly related to Ralph Waldo Emerson, but he’s not my ancestor per say. Other than that, I am not aware of any famous ones.

Have you ever taken out a loan to pay for school?
Uh, yes. Seven years of post-secondary education that I paid for solely by myself and will continue to pay for many more years. Feel free to send donations.

Last thing received in the mail?
A money order from a purchaser for my Etsy shop.

How many different beverages have you drunk today?
I actually haven’t yet drunk anything today, and it’s 11:34am

Do you ever leave messages on people's answering machine?
Yes. What kind of a question is that? I hate it when people don’t leave messages.

Do you draw your name in the sand when you go to the beach?
Yes. That and other words.

What's the most painful dental procedure you've had?

I had my wisdom teeth out in September. It wasn’t painful due to the knocking me out and all, but afterwards I wasn’t feeling so hot for a couple of days.

What is out your back door?
I don’t actually have a back door.

Any plans for Friday night?
Tonight? I’m driving 2.25 hours home and then I’m unpacking and probably sleeping.

Do you like what the ocean does to your hair?
I’ve only been swimming in the ocean once or twice (I think it was too cold in Maine, but I did go in Texas)… and I recall my hair feeling gritty afterwards. I don’t like gritty hair.

Have you ever received one of those big tins of 3 different kinds of popcorn for Christmas?
No. Have you?

Have you ever been to a planetarium?
Yes, at the Museum of Man and Nature in Winnipeg, on class trips in grade 6 and grade 9.

Do you re-use towels after you shower?
Who asks that? I like to think that most people do. You can leave it hanging up to dry and use it a couple of more times after that.

Some things you are excited about?
Saturday I’m going to St Catharines and Niagara Falls with a friend to see a friend. In a couple of weeks I’m going to Quebec for a camping conference.

What is your favorite flavor of JELLO?
I don’t like Jell-o.

Are any of your great-grandparents still alive?

The only one I ever knew died in 1986.

Where do you keep your change?
My wallet, a change purse, bottom of my purse, an owl-shaped piggy bank I have in my bathroom, and dimes I keep in a glass penguin and a glass on a dresser in my living room. And I found this change compartment in my car about a year and a half after I bought it. And it had money in it!

When was the last time you spoke in front of a large group of people?
Hmm... I don't remember.

What kind of winter coat do you have?

I have several… 1 navy blue long peacoat, 1 shorter red peacoat, a black NorthFace jacket, and a blue and off-white jacket of some other sort.

What was the weather like on your graduation day?
Which one? I think it was hot the day I graduated from high school. My two college graduations were nice days. My seminary graduation day it rained.

Do you sleep with the door to your room open or closed?
When I lived with people I kept it closed. Now that I live alone I sleep with it open. That and the fact that there is no heating register in it, I would freeze if I kept the door closed.

I’m not answering that.

What was the weirdest dream you've ever had?
In grade 3 I had this dream that there were emeralds and rubies in the snowbanks and they were huge. The most recurring dream I have is one where I'm back at my high school and I can't remember where my locker is. We didn't have locks on our lockers, so getting into it wasn't the problem, but finding it was.

Do you usually remember your dreams?
Sometimes.

Michelle - you are seriously in danger of dehydrating! Drink something! My dad always says: good hydration is your first line of defense.

Joanne said...
