20 Questions: June 21, 2009

1. What is your favorite physical characteristic in the opposite sex?
it would have to be their smile. it's not something i can give a specific description of but more the feeling it sparks. it's what i call "the slow burn smile."

2. What is the first TV show you remember watching as a child?
Sesame Street. i distinctly remember watching it, my Gram's house, as a very small child. my dad would always ask me what the letters & number of the day were when he got home from work.

3. What is your favorite quotable line from a movie?
my favorite movie quote is: "Have fun, that's what your twenties are for. Your thirties are for learning the lessons and your forties? Are for paying for the drinks." (Carrie Bradshaw in the S&TC movie) but the one i actually use most often in actual conversation? probably "So let it be written, so let it be done." (from the Charlton Heston classic, "The Ten Commandments")

4. What is your favorite kind of sandwich?
oh man... so many yummy options! i love ham & cheese with mustard. or grilled cheese. or a BLT on toast. or a tomato sandwich with just the right amount of mayo. i tend to eat a lot of sandwiches this time of year too.

5. How old were you when you got your first kiss?
15, i think? heh. clearly it wasn't that memorable.

6. I don't understand:
how anyone could ever intentionally harm a child.

7. Your opinion about love at first sight:
i think it's rare but i believe it is possible because you can never underestimate love.

8. How does it make you feel when you hear people argue?
very awkward & uncomfortable.

9. Have you ever fallen for someone who turned out to be nothing like they seemed?
hooo-boy. let's just say a resounding "hell yes" and move along, mm-kay?

10. Do you mind sharing the food that is on your plate with someone?
it depends on who the someone in question is. i would make a few exceptions, but by & large, i take my food seriously & you enter the plate region at your own risk. ;-)

11. Somewhere, somebody is asking him- or herself whatever happened to you. Who is it?
thanks to Facebook, i would say that the people i would normally list don't have to wonder. but now i'm curious who i'm *not* thinking of!

12. How did your car get that little scratch/dent?
someone at work backed up into it with one of the golf carts. right after announcing that he knew how to drive it. he did come in & own up to it, though, to his credit. karmic retribution? a month later someone bumped his truck with a forklift. and he couldn't lose his cool over it because i didn't freak out about his little incident. heh.

13. Would you rather get up early or sleep in?
i'm not much of a "sleep in" kinda girl. in fact, my idea of sleeping in would probably be considered getting up early by most people. if i'm in bed much past 7am, i either got to bed very late or i'm not feeling well.

14. Last person to leave you a comment?
that would be Giuseppina!

15. Who out of your friends has the next birthday coming up?
i have some family birthdays coming up in the next week or so and then again in August, but the next friend birthday would be Alison on September 14.

16. What is your favorite Disney movie?
Sleeping Beauty.

17. In what position do you sleep?
usually on my side (either one, doesn't matter) but sometimes on my back.

18. How long does it take you to get out of bed in the morning?
about ten minutes. i like to wake up slowly & stretch & gently ease into my day.

19. What do you have for a ring tone?
"Sweet Caroline," by Neil Diamond. which poses a dilemma for me when someone calls. because i end up singing along & not wanting to answer.

20. What scent is the air freshener in your bathroom?
it's called "Clean Linen," just a clean fresh scent.

9 with their own thoughts:

Now I'm going to have Sweet Caroline in my head all day!!! hahaha

You always have the best memes, I think I'm going to have to borrow this one!!

KekeLynn: Sweeeeeeet Caroliiiiiine (bum-bum-bum!) Good times never seemed so gooood... ;-)

Thanks! Feel free to borrow! I keep a running list of questions to use as the inspiration strikes me & from old memes that have since stopped being updated when I see a question that jumps out at me as I rummage through the archives. ;-)

My answer to #1: NOTHING. I hate men right now. (dad excluded)

oops - forgot to subscribe...

~**Dawn**~ Monday, June 22, 2009 9:49:00 AM  

K: I hate when I forget to sunscribe. =P There's not even a feature on a "celebrity crush" Chris Noth/Mark Ruffalo level that's just nice to look at without dealing with the crap of reality?? Now I really have to hurt O if he's made it so you can't even admire from afar!

K13 Monday, June 22, 2009 10:01:00 AM  

OK - with regards to Noth & Ruffalo, it will have to be the dark hair/eye features, so I will exclude them from the "hate club" too.

K: Chris Noth totally has the slow burn smile thing going on too. ;-)
