50 Things

It’s been a while since I posted last, so sorry about that.

To make up for it, here’s another random questionnaire. I found this one at The War in My Brain. And it was fun to do!

WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE?
~ No, but my initials are the same as my Grandpa’s.

WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED?
~ Last year, my crying jag at work. I’ve teared up once or twice since then, but no falling tears.

DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING?
~ It’s all right, I guess. Here’s an example, from my old blog; it was a handwriting questionnaire that I took part in:

~ I think so. Not close friends, but friends nonetheless.

DO YOU USE SARCASM A LOT?
~ Nooooooooooooo.

DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS?
~ Yes.

WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP?
~ Maybe. I’d have to be reassured beyond belief that it’s safe to do, though.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CEREAL?
~ Ew! I don’t eat cereal, haven’t in years. I blame Roald Dahl because, in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Willy Wonka compares cereal to pencil shavings. And ever since I read that, I haven’t eaten cereal.

IF YOU WERE A CRAYON, WHAT COLOR WOULD YOU BE?
~ Blue with the tip bitten off. Long story.

~ Nope, and I never will, either.

FAVORITE FOOD?
