I tagged myself on this meme from Sly Fox A.

1. Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed?
Closed. Sometimes I keep them open at home (but never in a hotel or elsewhere…creepy!), but now I have to keep them permanently closed because my dear little Neville likes to chew my SEXY LEATHER BOOTS! Damn it!

2. Do you take the shampoos and conditioner bottles from hotels?
Hell yes. I paid for those bad boys!

3. Have you ever ‘done it’ in a hotel room?
Yes, but it’s amazing how one of us seems to get horny when staying at hotels and how un-horny the other seems to get. What can I say? I’m a comfort creature and unless I’m home in my comfortable surroundings? It probably ain’t gonna happen.

4. Have you ever stolen a street sign before?
No, but I always wanted to. There’s a Victoria street (except it’s my real name) in Denver and I always wanted to steal it and hang it in my room. Damn those morals that prevented me! (Or was it just the logistics of my having to shimmy up a big pole with tools in the middle of the night?)

5. Do you like to use post-it notes?
I suppose. I use them at work. At home, my lists are on note paper.

6. Do you cut out coupons but then never use them?
ALWAYS.

7. Would you rather be attacked by a big bear or a swarm of bees?
What an awful question! I guess a bear. It’s a better story to tell (if I survived it, that is). Growing up in Colorado, you’re always taught what to do when you see a bear. Thankfully I never got to test those lessons.

8. Do you always smile for pictures?
Yes. How can you not?

9. What is your biggest pet peeve?
That I have more than one pet peeve and can’t ever pick the biggest one to share on a meme.

10. Do you sleep with your sheets tucked in or out?
Do you mean are the sheets tucked underneath the mattress and I’m somehow stuck in between? Or do you mean are the sheets hanging over the comforter or inside? If the first question: no. If the second question: the latter.

11. Do you ever count your steps when you walk?
No. But back in my OCD childhood years I probably would, seeing how I would click my molars together and count street lights and shit.

12. Have you ever peed in the woods?
Of course. I grew up in Colorado and went camping, yo! Bet I never told you about the time I went sledding and peed in the snow….unintentionally.

13. Do you ever jump up and down to make your privates bounce?
Um, I don’t need to jump up and down to accomplish that, thankyouverymuch.

14. Do you chew your pens and pencils?
No. Cambridge does that enough for both of us.

15. How many people have you slept with this week?
Uh, one. How many people have I “slept” with my entire life? One. (I’m so pure.)

16. Do you like popcorn from those big tins?
No, but it doesn’t stop me from eating it. CHEESE!!!

17. What is your “Song of the week”?
Don’t have one. I’m not a huge music person.

18. Is it okay for guys to wear pink?
Yes, it’s attractive for a man to be confident and wear whatever he wants to despite gender codes and all that bullshit.

19. Do you still watch cartoons?
No, but I would if I found a good one. ‘Howl’s Moving Castle’ was pretty awesome.

20. Whats your favorite scary movie?
I hate scary movies. If Sixth Sense counts, I’ll choose that one, though.

21. Where would you bury treasure if you had some?
Somewhere in the depths of the craft room. There’s enough junk back there to hide anything.

22. What do you drink with dinner?
Water or wine.

23. What color is your cell phone?
Silver.

24. Were you a boy/girl scout?
Yep. I was a Brownie and then a Girl Scout. It was fun. We camped and stuff. Oh, and I made a corn cob doll that my cat ate.

25. Would you ever strip or pose nude in a magazine?
No. But I’d take nude pictures of myself for a photography class and present them to the whole class. Hey! It’s art!

26. When was the last time you wrote a letter to someone on paper?
Boy. That would be….gosh, I don’t know. Does a thank you note count? I do that regularly. But a letter? It’s been years – my middle sister probably got the last one and that was a loooong time ago.

27. Can you change the oil on a car?
No, but I can learn if you teach me.

28. Ever gotten a speeding ticket?
Yes, god damn it! That’s one of the first welcome gifts Nashville gave me! My first one ever, too!

29. Ran out of gas?
Nope.

30. Favorite kind of sandwich?:
Hot roast beef and cheddar with lots of mustard and mayo. Yum.

31. Best thing to eat for breakfast?
Cherry blintzes, baby!

32. What is your usual bedtime?

33. Are you lazy?
Just on the weeknights and weekends. Ha!

34. When you were a kid what did you dress up as for Halloween?
One year I went as an aquarium on a table. I wore a fish lips mask and made a cardboard box into an aquarium (cut out part was for my face) with weeds and stuff coming up the sides. The table was a rectangle over my shoulders with a long table cloth going down. As a teenager I got less creative and was a stripper.

35. Do you read the newspaper?
No. I don’t like to throw away that much paper. NPR or nothing for me.

44. Dance in the car?
I can really shake that little Saturn when I’m in the mood.

In Alaska my uncle took Huz and I out to shoot those clay pigeon things. I did it once and stopped. It hurts and I suck!

46. Last time you got a portrait taken by a photographer?
In 1995 for a church directory. I hate that picture and I hate that church.

47. Are musicals cheesy?
Uh, yes. ‘Waiting for Guffman’ is so funny because it’s true.

Just the travelling home part. After that, I love every minute of it (FAMILY, COLORADO).

62. Ever hear of, “gorp”?
Is that a booze of some sort?

Absolutely – my current spouse will be a professor in a theology department some day soon.

65. Can you curl your tongue?
Like a taco.

Band. I wish I could do it again and have a band and dancing and drinking…all the things a religious 18 year old bride can’t have.

I won a limbo contest in Honduras at age 13. I also got a photo accepted and printed in a work newsletter calendar, if that counts. No prizes won, though.
