Because it's all about MeMe...
The marvelous Holly tagged me...
WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE? Yes, after one of the great 20th century bombshells. Hot cha cha!
WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED? Sunday, thinking how much I love my Dad.
DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING? When I take time with my hand, with a nice pen, I like my writing. Generally, it's chicken scratch - I coulda been a doctor.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH MEAT? Um, Prosciutto, Salami, hard, salty thingies, but not turkey.
DO YOU HAVE KIDS? I wanted to have a bunch, but I have a doglet, and the kids of my siblings will have to do, and they are fantastic, so it's ok.
IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU? I can be impatient with spazzy people, but I AM spazzy sometimes. I hope I could have the clarity to see through to the earnest, eager-to-please cupcake that I am. Then again, I might be really jealous of my urbane cool and wicked style. *ting!*
DO YOU USE SARCASM A LOT? I like to say it's better to regret the shitty remark you made than to regret the shitty remark you wish you'd made... I live by that policy, and have a lot to regret having said...
DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS? Yup. Original manufacturer equipment here.
WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP? I'll willingly get myself into masochistic binds, but I won't bungee jump, ever. I wouldn't do a free-fall ride at an amusement park, either. Not my ideer of a good time.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CEREAL? Corn Bran, but I can't find it. I don't think they make it any more, but it was delicious. Lately, I prefer oatmeal with brown sugar and butter.
DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF? Most of mine are slip-on dress shoes, but no, I don't untie them if I can slip them off without doing so
DO YOU THINK YOU ARE STRONG? People in my family are physically very strong, and I'm no exception. My strength isn't what's dangerous about me, though - it's the hausfrau rage you gotta worry about.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ICE CREAM? Black Walnut- are my roots showing?
WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE? varies. Humor, style, conversational ease, and - having dealt with a bit of it - nuroses jump out at me and I run like hell.

WHO WAS THE LAST PERSON YOU TALKED TO ON THE PHONE? My sister.
FAVORITE SPORTS TO WATCH? Live: Little kid sports are cute to watch, Dressage. Televised: Equestrian, um. Like watching billiards competitions, rarely watch sports, actually. I saw some exciting darts on tv in England once.
