Fun On Friday

"Borrowed" this quiz from Another Steph. Made a couple changes to it. Would LOVE to hear your answers in the comments section! Happy Friday!

1. Grab the book nearest to you, turn to page 18, and find line 4.
"Chilled from the rain," I answered, quickly disengaging.

2. Name of the book.
Disturbing the Peace, by Nancy Newman. Have not read it yet, except for page 18, line 4, of course.

3. What is the last thing you watched on TV?
Dora.

4. Without looking guess what time it is?
10:36

5. Now look at the clock. What is the actual time.
10:40--Ooh, I'm good.

6. Besides the computer, what else can you hear?
Fan from the heater, cleaning lady making noise, Dora or something else, oh yeah, Lazy Town.

7. When did you last step outside? What were you doing?
Twenty minutes ago. To find garbage bags and to recycle the empty cardboard box of tampons. Empty box, folks.

8. Before you started this survey, what did you look at?
The blog where I found this quiz.

9.What are you wearing?
Old Navy brown long-sleeve shirt. Jeans that feel too tight. Ugly old underwear. A bra. Black socks.

10. Did you dream last night?
Oh yeah! This is a good question--I dreamed my mom, who is 61 was pregnant and she was going to have the baby, and my sister and I were like, that's cool, cuz if you die, we can just take care of the baby. And then my mom got my sister and I some charms from Tiffany's like the one from the sterling silver link bracelet, and the charms had our birthdates and names on them, and I was annoyed because my charm had brushed gold on it and my sister's did not, and the brushed gold does not match the sterling silver and I wanted to try to steal my sister's charm, but then realized I couldn't because it had her name on it.

11. When did you last laugh?
Right now, as I thought about that crazy dream.

12. What is on the walls of the room you are in?
My favorite room in my house--cream red Disney color called Firefly something or the other, pictures of my children, letters that spell out D R E A M that I bought and painted metallic gold, and little hanging thing that says S I M P L I F Y. One of those cork boards where you slip pictures through the ribbons, and it's got pictures of my very close friends on it, and then lots of pictures of beautiful children of my close friends and a great picture of my new nephew, who I will get to play with all weekend--Ethan!

Also on the walls are ribbons with cut-out decorated stars hanging from them that Diva created and they blow in the air when the heater goes on. They remind me of how much I love her when I see them every day. Let's see, what else is in here. A cool votive candle holder with beading that I'm always too scared to light because what if the wax drips onto my chair? A sunshine mirror. An Irish Claddaugh mirror. Another sunshine mirror; Jamaican artwork I love by Claude Dambreuilley, and a small paper machette painted sunshine to remind me to be happy.

Oh, and a lightswitch.

13. Seen anything weird lately?
Too much to write about.

14. What do you think of this quiz?
Better than the one where they ask you who would be most likely to respond and what is your favorite color, or who did you talk to on the phone last. I hope those questions aren't below, because I truly didn't look through the whole quiz.

15. What is the last film you saw?
Movie? At the theater, Nanny McPhee, which was awesome, and I was crying at the end, and Diva was looking at me and begging me not to cry, please Mommy, don't cry, it's not sad!

16. If you became a multi-millionaire overnight, what would you buy?
A personal chef. A personal trainer. Both would have to be late twenties, and hot. Oh, and Random House or one of those big publishing companies so I could get my novel published!

17. If you could change one thing about the world, regardless of guilt or politics, what would you do?
No murder. No cancer. Shit, I can't think of just one.

18. Do you like to dance?
With a good buzz and good music.

19. George W. Bush is:
a president? The son of a former president? A guy who the comedians on SNL makes fun of?

20. Imagine your first child is a girl, what do you call her?
DivaBitchDoll. This one's not fair because I have one already, so I'm omitting this question, and the next one which is the same question but about a boy.

21. Did you learn anything about this quiz?
Yeah, I like my office. And, I'm hungry.

22. Here's one I just thought up: What is the most significant memory of your childhood, good or bad?
When I was three and pooped in my underwear and my Dad was watching basketball and I don't know where my mom was (work maybe) and he made me go into the bathroom and clean it up myself, and I remember thinking there are tiny little holes in the underwear because when they sew them, there just are. So, I was amazed that the poop stayed in the underwear and didn't leak through all the holes. It was gross. I really, really remember that.

One is a cool shot of shuttered windows overlooking a canal in Amsterdam, and the other is a canal and ivy covered bridge in Bruge, Belgium.

22. Here's one I just thought up: What is the most significant memory of your childhood, good or bad?
I remember being very angry that my mom was entertaining some friends, and not paying enough attention to me, so I went outside to our patio and stuffed rocks so far up my nose she had to take me to the doctors to extract them. I remember the smell of blood and steel when they were pulled out. I was two and a half at the time, and it set the stage for many interactions between my mom and I.
