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.

RED OR PINK? Unquestionably Red.

WHAT IS THE LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT YOURSELF? Letting negative people overwhelm me

WHO DO YOU MISS THE MOST? My grandpa, my grandmothers and my old self.


WHAT WAS THE LAST THING YOU ATE? Luby's Vegetable plate.

WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW? Me, tapping the plastic

IF YOU WHERE A CRAYON, WHAT COLOR WOULD YOU BE? something metallic, copper or gold

FAVORITE SMELLS? Morning Zen incense by Shoyeido, Light Blue by Dolce & Gabbana, the smell of the Chiracahua hills, my dog (except her breath), the faint smell of dust stirred and carried on the wind right before it starts pouring rain, the fresh, green fragrance of the Ozarks.


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.




FAVORITE FOOD? Steak, raw and wriggling. Knock the horns off and wipe its ass. Yum.

SCARY MOVIES OR HAPPY ENDINGS? Happy endings, though I can get bored with incredibly predictable films.

LAST MOVIE YOU WATCHED? Little Miss Sunshine

WHAT COLOR SHIRT ARE YOU WEARING? Still the same beach towel, tropical colors.

SUMMER OR WINTER? Winter. Definitely fall and winter - I prefer cold weather

HUGS OR KISSES? Tam had the perfect answer on this one, but Hugs are generally safe and sweet

FAVORITE DESSERT? Um, I love good Belgian chocolate, especially Astrid by Neuhaus or its counterpart Satan by Godiva. Glorious.



WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING NOW? Finishing up Comanche Moon

WHAT IS ON YOUR MOUSE PAD? Alien heads from Roswell, NM.

WHAT DID YOU WATCH ON T.V. LAST NIGHT? I watched DVR of The Soup from Friday night

FAVORITE SOUND[S]? Voices of loved ones, good music, the voices of Thomas Quasthoff, Imogen Heap and that singer from Elbow *rowr*, a Glaswegian accent

ROLLING STONES OR BEATLES? Um, Liv Tyler was the best thing to ever come out of the Rolling Stones, and I can't think of anything THAT nice to say about the Beatles. I can take or leave either, but mostly, I'll just leave them.


DO YOU HAVE A SPECIAL TALENT? Yes, I can safely say I qualify for the short bus

WHERE WERE YOU BORN? Pocahontas Arkansas

WHOSE ANSWERS ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO GETTING BACK? Ordinary Girl's, if she'll stoop to confer

Well, than let me be the first. Damn that thing is goin' around like a social disease. I will not! Mmmm, bath sheets are the coolest, particularly if you are freakishly large, like myself. I can't believe more people aren't choosing scary movies. I'd soooo much rather watch blood flow than crap like Beaches. People should die violently in movies so that it's entertaining. Anyway, damn, I may have to do this thing.

NO, I will not. Get thee behind me Satan (holding index fingers making sign of cross)!

I thought Liv Tyler came out of Aerosmith. You Smarmy sister, A
Oh crap, Aerosmith songs in my head AAARRRG.

Ambulance Driver said...

Uummm, Phlegm?

Liv Tyler was the best thing to come out of *Aerosmith* although I do like them much more than the stones.

Steven Tyler has better lips than Mick Jagger anyway. ;)

phlegmfatale said...

sis - THAT was my point, although I do concede that Gimme Shelter is an excellent song, the rest of it could go away forever, as far as I am concerned.

ambulance driver - PRECISELY, my dear. Liv Tyler was the best thing to come out of Aerosmith, too, but I was just giving RS vicarious credit for making such a marvleous contribution to humanity.

Mick Jagger, oh my goodness, don't get me started. He was always disturbing - too skinny with extra folds of skin awaiting a good helium injection, but now he's looking shar-pei-ish, scary, stringy. Yuck. And all that prancing around? I'll never forgive him for wounding my soul with "Emotional Rescue."

Paul McCartney is just as bad.

phlegmfatale said...

Yeah, Junior's Farm - what a stinker!

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Slagging both Mick Jagger and Paul McCartney? You are now in my will, girl!

Zelda said...

I wanna be just like you when I grow taste.

Anonymous said...

uh, I think Todd Rundgren is Liv's biological father...

not that I was there, but I hear things from time to time.


phlegmfatale said...

barbara - *slag* *slag*

zelda - If it weren't for bad taste, I'd have no taste at all

rabbit - her ma, Bebe Buell, was married to Todd Rundgren and raised her as his own, but later she figured out Steven Tyler was her pop (she's nearly identical to his other daughter, Mia) and changed her name, but kept Rundgren as her middle name.

HollyB said...

You are FAR too modest, Dear One. Your eyes are NOT just "Blue". Your eyes are Shockingly, Mesmerizingly, Electrifyingly BLUE!

phlegmfatale said...

Hols - well, I LIKE the way you say that!

Joe said...

hah -- I already played just prove to all of you that said I would be least likely to respond. Perverse that way I am

Kelly said...

Oh shit...was I supposed to do this thing?
Nobody told me.
Ok, if I find a few hundred hours tomorrow, I'll do it.
