When was the last time you swam in a pool?
~ A few months ago, after I finished a workout at the YMCA.
Do you like to party? Who doesn’t like to party?
~ Depends on what kind of party it is, I guess. I like parties enough.
If your ex suddenly kissed you right now, what would you do?
~ I would probably push him away and angrily tell him I already have a (new) boyfriend. However, as I do not have an ex, I’m in the clear.
Are you a virgin?
~ Okay, fine, you got me! No, I’m not. But, you know, it’s private. So, let’s just leave it at that.
Is your best friend dating anyone?
~ Yes – me! Johnny is my best friend! By the way, it’s Johnny’s birthday today. Happy birthday, Johnny!
Describe the shirt you’re wearing.
~ It’s orange with a semi-leopard print collar. It’s also very sheer by itself, so I have an orange camisole on underneath it.
Could you go out in public without wearing makeup?
~ I do it every day, so yes. Heaven only knows what would happen if I got a job that required all the female employees to wear makeup on a daily basis. Number 1) I don’t know how to apply makeup, and Number 2) I don’t think employers can require that, can they?
What is one feature that you don’t like about yourself?
~ I’m chubby. I wish I was a bit slimmer, say by maybe thirty pounds.
Would people describe you as happy?
~ Yes, nowadays.
Do you have a Tumblr?
Sleep with or without clothes on?

You’re offered free tickets to a Justin Bieber concert. What do you do?
~ Absolutely and unequivocally turn them down, or sell them, or burn them, or whatever. Justin Bieber is horrible, and I wouldn’t go to see him for my first concert, and certainly not if he were the last….well, whatever, on earth. (Almost called him something I’d regret.)
Does it bother you if people swear around you?
~ Only if it’s excessive, or only said to try to be shocking. You know? It is possible to swear in proper context, you know. I read a story once that had only one swear word in it, perfectly placed to describe a situation, and well within character. I barely blinked upon reading it, because it was perfect for the situation and the character. So.
Do you prefer Wednesdays or Thursdays?
~ Thursdays. One day closer to the weekend.
~ You mean the shoes? No. Too expensive.
Prefer black or blue pens?
~ Ooo. Blue, definitely. You can distinguish blue ink easier on black-ink-printed documents. Most places anymore prefer blue ink, for that very reason.
Dress up on Halloween?
~ I like to, and try to, yes. This coming Halloween, I think I’ll dress up as Sadness from “Inside Out.” Just, you know, I won’t be painting myself blue. We learned that lesson from when we painted Younger Brother blue to go as a member of the Blue Man Group that one Halloween.
Like to travel?
~ Yes! I love traveling!
~ Of course. I like Johnny.
Does he know?
Who sleeps with you every night?
~ No one at present. Not even a cat – because my room is still such a mess, we don’t let the cats into my room, for fear we’d never find them again in the mess.
Think you’re attractive?
~ I didn’t used to, but my boyfriend thinks I am. And, with the exception of my weight, now I can look in the mirror and go, “Yeah, I’m fine with that.” So make of that what you will.
Want to get married?
~ Perhaps. I mean, I would seriously consider it should the topic arise. No rush or anything, though, and definitely no pressure! Let’s just wait and see.
Are you a good student?
~ I was average when I was in school.
Are you currently happy?
Have you ever cheated/been cheated on?
~ No. I would never cheat in the first place, and I have never been cheated on.
~ Peoria, Illinois.
Christmas or Halloween?
~ I like both holidays equally.
Colored or black-and-white photo?
~ Both. Every picture tells a story, no matter the color.
Do you believe in astrology?
~ That’s horoscopes and the like, right? Not really. I read
Do you believe in love at first sight?
~ No. I believe love, and true love at that, takes time.
If you could move anywhere in the world for free, where would you move?
~ Either London, England or Australia.
Has anything been pissing you off lately?
~ No. Well. Donald Trump. If you saw my tweet this morning, about how his voice carried over the roar and noise of the bus – usually, the bus driver has his radio turned on, and he listens to the news, and that means sound bytes. Usually it’s hard to hear anything on the radio over the noise of the running bus. So this morning, about Trump, that meant I could clearly hear. Every. Single. Word. And I don’t want to listen to Trump! So. That’s got me annoyed on this Monday thus far. I mean, to be fair, he has always said what was on his mind, and yes, it’s usually what others have been thinking. But he’s taking it too far lately, and I don’t like that one bit. It’s very scary to me.
Ain’t that the truth!
Do you have a favorite Blizzard flavor?
What did you do this morning?

What time did you wake up this morning?
~ 6:30, which is typical for me.
Have you ever hugged someone you didn’t know?
What do you like the most about your best friend?

Who did you last give a piggyback ride to?
~ Years and years ago, to one of my younger cousins.
Who is playing guitar in the song you are currently listening to?
~ Have no idea. I’d have to Google it.
Do you like Lady Gaga or does she try too hard?
~ All the costumes and makeup and flamboyance cover up a perfectly fine singer. She’s got a great voice, if she would just sing! I have yet to get the album that she made with Tony Bennett, because I am so interested in hearing that.
Who was your favorite Beatle?
~ In order: John Lennon first, then George Harrison a very close second, and then Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr are tied for third.
What’s the ugliest trend you’ve ever seen?

Can any songs make you cry?
~ Certainly. Depends on my mood.
What’s the genre of the current song you’re listening to?

~ I’d get used to it, after panicking somewhat, but I’d hope that help would arrive.
When was the last time you played Guitar Hero?
~ I have never once played Guitar Hero before, though I’ve watched Younger Brother play it a couple times before. (For the record, I don’t think he has that game anymore.)
Where did you last wear a bathing suit?
~ To Wisconsin Dells, when Johnny and I went to Noah’s Ark last June.
Who did your last notification come from?
~ Huh? I don’t understand the question. My last text came from Johnny.

When sitting on the floor, in what position do you normally sit?
~ Indian style.
Did you remember to wear deodorant today?

Do you get along with your parents?
Does the last person you kissed know what color your eyes are?
Do you feel more comfortable with a male or female doctor/nurse?

Do you know anyone who has the same last name as you that you aren’t related to?
Ever cried so much you threw up?

What were you doing at 2 AM this morning?
When was the last time something bothered you?
~ I broke my pinky toe last week, and it’s still somewhat bothering me. But it’s not constant pain or anything – just twinges when I stretch my toes or step the wrong way.
Do you believe teenagers can be in love and stay in love?
~ Sure. It sometimes works out.

Last song you listened to?
~ Mariah Carey’s “Always Be My Baby.” The last GOOD song on the radio was “Pride (In the Name of Love)” by U2. And also Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers’ “Learning To Fly” was in there somewhere, and that’s a good song, too.
Have you ever passed out on the bathroom floor?
~ Yes. I’d just had my wisdom teeth pulled, and was changing the gauze in my mouth. I saw the blood on the gauze, felt funny, and the next thing I knew, I was laying on the bathroom floor, having passed out.
That was a fun break. Now, back to the grind.
