This photo is today’s Throwback Thursday post, and comes courtesy of an uncle.
I was either posing or else just waking up from a nap when this photo was taken. My boyfriend liked this photo a lot when he first saw it, so I’m sharing it with you today.
Just felt like sharing it.
Anyway, here are some questions I answered. Feel free to take them for your own use.
Why are you here today?
~ In the grand scheme of things, blame my parents. tee hee. Seriously, I dunno.
If you were an animal, what would you be and why?
~ A mouse. For obvious reasons.
If you were a cartoon, which one would you prefer being?
What is the weirdest thing you have ever eaten?
~ Suckling pig’s leg….or butt, depending on what you wanted to call it.
What’s the worst thing you did as a kid?
~ Sneaked into someone’s house. Another story for another time.
What do you do to have fun?
~ Write, read, hang out with Johnny, listen to music, watch movies, travel, swim, work out, walk, blog….
Have you ever been told you look like someone famous?
What is that one ‘thing’ that makes you different?
~ Ehh, I dunno. Everyone is unique.
If you were the Miss World, what would your message to aspiring models be?
~ Seeing as how I won’t ever be Miss World, I got nothing to say.
If you were to name one piece of clothing that describes you, what would you say?
~ A soft, heather/charcoal gray hoodie sweater with long sleeves and a muff in the front to put your hands. *shrug* You asked.
If you could eliminate one thing from your daily schedule, what would it be and why?
~ I’d trade the bus ride for a car ride any day. I really need to get my license!
If you wake up as (someone famous), what’s the first thing you would do?
~ What everyone does: pee. Duh! Seriously, though, I don’t know.
Name one funny trait you have that you would like others to know.
~ That I can be funny in the first place!
Which letter of the alphabet describes you best?
~ O. Because some people mistake it for zero, while others know it’s an O.
If you turn into your partner for a day, what would you do?
~ Dialysis nursing. Interesting.
What’s the funniest pick up line used on you?
~ “If I could lay out some cheese, I bet I could get a mouse to fall into my trap.” Yeah, creepy, initially, but funny in hindsight.
Share one truth and one lie about your personality, and let others guess which is what.
~ Yeah, that’s not going to work. You’d know straightaway which is what. Where’s the fun in that?
If you were to write a book about yourself, what would you title it?
~ Poor Original.
Which body part would you choose to get a tattoo done?
~ Two. One on my left wrist, and one on my lower back.
If you were to get a permanent tattoo done, what would it be and why?
~ The one on my left wrist would be a semicolon, for Project Semicolon. The one on my lower back would be a barcode with the words “Poor Original” embedded within. And I would think it was funny.
Name one thing that’s impossible for anyone to do.
~ Dunno. Simultaneously patting one’s head and rubbing one’s tummy? (Admit it, you’re trying it right now.)
Tea or coffee?
~ Tea, thanks to Johnny.
Earth or Mars?
Crayon or paintbrush?
~ Both. But I’m not artistic in that way.
Candy or ice cream?
~ Ice cream.
Famous Five or Secret Seven?
~ Huh? What? *Googles it* Ohhh, I see! I didn’t read either one, my apologies to Enid Blyton.
Tell us something you hate doing. Why?
~ Getting started on any chore.
What’s your pet peeve?
~ People standing/sitting right behind me and/or reading over my shoulder. It’s the writer in me.
Have you ever been in jail?
Have you ever been drunk?
Name one thing that drives you crazy.
~ Other drivers.
What’s the one thing you can’t live without?
~ My phone.
As a child, what did you wish to become when you grew up?
~ A writer, always and for truly. Otherwise a singer, an actress, or a meteorologist.
What’s your motto in life?
~ “Look down the road.” Thank you, Calvin and Hobbes.
Share a funny incident in your life.
~ Okay. Once, long ago, my aunt Ellen taught Older Sister and I a new word: “decapitate.” She demonstrated by pulling the head off of one of our dolls. We almost burst into tears, because we thought she had broken the doll, but she was quick to point out that “The head goes back on!” Then it was a game to us. We used to interrupt our parents’ friends by running into the room, screaming “Decapitate!” while pulling off a doll’s head, and then running out. See? We were warped children!
If you could have an unlimited storage of one thing, what would it be?
~ As I am trying to declutter my living space, I couldn’t really say without getting anyone mad at me. (Psst, it’d be books.)
What’s the funniest prank ever played on you?
~ I got the old snakes in a can bit once, which was hardly funny; I was five, it scared me, and so I burst into tears afterward. Pranks were never played on me, but one of the more audacious pranks I’ve ever heard done was while the band was in Europe. Some kids sneaked out of their room(s) in the middle of the night and knocked on random doors. Considering the band director at the time, that prank was pretty funny.
What’s the naughtiest thing you have done in school?
~ Spoke out of turn.
If given the chance, who would you like to be for a day? Or who would you like to exchange roles with?
~ I don’t know. Quoth the Bad Guy Affirmation from “Wreck-It Ralph”: “There’s no one I’d rather be than me.”
What’s the funniest daily horoscope you have read?
~ Oh, man! I can’t remember! I remember the most meaningful one, because I wrote it down. The funniest one had to do with existentialism, and I actually got the joke. Wish I could remember it.
What’s the silliest thing you have heard people say about you?
~ That I’m plain and peaceful. HA! I’m anything but, let me tell you.
Share one funniest, one silliest, and one wackiest status you have put up on social media.
~ One of my more recent statuses involved that Duran Duran song “Hungry Like the Wolf,” wherein I pondered the meaning of the line “Smell like I sound.” Yeah, I know, I’m stupid.
Would you rather be a giant rodent or a tiny elephant?
~ Contrary to my mousy personality, I would much rather be a diminutive elephant. I prefer being small and meek.
