Forty Questions Meme

I found two memes on Angelbrat's blog and combined the best questions from each to make this one. Enjoy!

1. When you looked at yourself in the mirror today, what was the first thing you thought?  I've gotta do something about my hair.

2. How much cash do you have on you?  Fifty dollars plus a handful of change.

3. What's a word that rhymes with 'Door'?  Floor

4. Favourite planet?  Earth. (Go on, admit it. You thought I was going to say Uranus.)

5. Do you own more than 100 CDs?  Easily more than that between the two of us. We play three every evening while making dinner.

6. Have you ever finished off the popcorn and ate the junk from the bottom of the bag?  I love the crumbs and powdered flavouring left at the bottom of bags of chips, crackers and other snacks. Ron only likes whole pieces so I always finish off the crumbs.

7. What kind of top are you wearing?  A striped, stretchy long-sleeved mock turtleneck.

8. Do you label yourself?  I have "L" and "R" on the backs of my hands.

9. Name the brand of shoes you are currently wearing? WindRiver

10. Bright or dark room? Bright, unless I'm trying to sleep.

11. Have you ever been pooped on from the sky?  Of course. Where there are birds, there's poop. The cars take a lot of hits too.

12. What does your watch look like?  I have five watches, but the one I'm wearing has a black heart-shaped face and a silver band.

13. What were you doing at midnight last night?  Letting the dogs out.

14. Have you ever done anything you could be arrested for?  When I was at university I had a summer job in a retail store. I sometimes helped myself to the merchandise, but luckily I never got caught. I have since reformed.

15. Have you ever dated someone a decade older than you?  My first serious boyfriend was over two decades older. We eventually decided that we didn't have a lot in common.

16. Have you ever listened to a song and cried?  It was "Rise Again" by the Rankin Family. A children's' choir sang it at the farewell concert directed by a much-loved choirmaster who was leaving.

17. Who last told you he/she loved you?  Ron

18. What was the last furry thing you touched?  Something with a thousand legs that scurried across my foot just now.

19. How many drugs have you done in the past three days?  I take several vitamin supplements, aspirin and prescription medication, so I'd say 21.

20. Favourite age you have been so far?  The age I am now.

21. Have you ever had a secret crush on a teacher?  Yes, we often had young male student teachers, and they were so much more interesting than our usual middle-aged grumpy female teachers.

22. What was the last thing you said to someone?  Good morning!

23. Have you ever been found sleep walking?  Yes, once. I think I was in the kitchen, heading toward the fridge when I woke up.

24. The last song you listened to?  Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah"

25. What's your favourite number?  pi

26. Where did you live in 1987?  The same place I live now.

27. What do you do when vending machines steal your money?  I get even by unplugging them.

28. Do you kiss with your eyes open or closed?  Open if it's a quick kiss, closed if it's a long sexy one.

29. If you could be fluent in any other language, what would it be?  German

30. What was the last song you sang?  "Ubi Caritas" by Maurice Durufle.

31. Have you ever seen a ghost?  No, but I understand there are several haunted places in the city where I live.

32. When was the last time you wrote a letter to someone and mailed it?  Yesterday. I regularly write letters to a family member who doesn't have email.

33. Can you change the oil on a car?  What, and put the mechanics out of business?

34. How far back do you know about your ancestry?  Two generations

35. When showering, do you start the water and then get in, or get in and then start the water?  I start the water first and check the temperature, then get in when it's just right.

36. Have you ever crashed a car?  Never. I have scraped the bumper a couple of times when I was easing into a parking spot. That's as exciting as it gets. (Ron still won't let me forget it.)

37. Does every family have a crazy relative?  Oh, yes, and probably more than one.

38. Have you ever sent a prank call or email?  No, but Ron thinks up funny things to say when telemarketers call.

39. How old do you look?  Much younger than my age.

40. Should guys wear pink?  Definitely. Ron looks adorable in pink.

Please feel free to share this meme on your blog.

Thanks for sharing!! What three cDs do you play while getting ready for dinner?


Anonymous said...

Thanks. We have lots of CDs as well.


Kenzie said...

This was fun! I like how you combined two of them. The telemarketer thing is great lol

sunnygirl said...

Thanks - do love these meme's. Saw them on Angel's Blog but now I don't have a post so I'll be "borrowing" tomorrow.

Good answers. Ubi Caritas was the song we sang at my high school graduation. I don't think I've heard it since. Thanks for the reminder of younger days.

You've chosen interesting questions.
I don't like a bright room when I go to sleep.

Going to have to do this one myself. Can't resist a meme.

Thanks for sharing.

Funny meme, thanks for sharing, Hermione! It's nice to hear that you would like to speak German fluently. And pi is indeed a great number! :-)

AngelBrat said...

Fun! I enjoyed your answers. :)


Hermione said...

Abby - I enjoyed doing it.

Sir Qsmlb - There are three different ones each night, pretty much always folk music. Some oldies like Gordon Lightfoot and Ian and Sylvia, and some current artists.

Joey - We'll probably never bother with iPods.

Kenzie - Thanks. I had to discard some questions that I couldn't relate to.

Sunny - I wondered how readers would respond to my musical choices. Ubi Caritas is a favourite of mine because for once, the altos have the tune.

Ronnie - Please do! They are fun, aren't they?

Kaelah - When I was much younger I dreamed of going to a German riding school to learn properly.

AngelBrat - And thank you for the raw material!


Roz said...

Lea said...

Hermione said...

Roz - it was my pleasure.

Lea - I'm glad you liked it.

Hermione, Question #14. Do you believe you should have been spanked, on your bare bottom, for stealing. Also Question #21. That's how I found my fantasy. I had a crush on one of my female teacher's, who I wished to take down her knicker's and cane her delectable bare bottom.

Hermione said...

Six - Yes, I suppose I should have been spanked for stealing. But I can invoke the statute of limitations, thank goodness!


Terpsichore said...

very fun answers... :-)

Hermione, my favorite planet would be MARS. Because I believe those chocholate bars are 'out of this world'.
