50 Questions

This has been going around the blogs I read, so I'm finally getting around to doing it myself. Primarily to make a particular couple of people laugh. :)

1. Height?
5'3.25" as of yesterday at the doctor's office.

Is heroine smoked? I thought it was injected.

3. Do you own a gun?
Nope, I have kids in the house.

4. Who would you let eat crackers in your bed?
Anyone, really, if they were careful and caught the crumbs and dropped them into the trash can next to the bed. Or at least confined them to their own side.

5. Do you get nervous before doctor appointments?

6. What do you think of hot dogs?
I try not to. I generally only eat Oscar Mayer all beef hot dogs. They don't have stuff inside them that I can't chew. Helps with the not thinking part.

7. What’s your favorite Christmas song?
The 12 Pains of Christmas, which probably tells you more about me than any other answer on this thing.

8. What do you prefer to drink in the morning?
Tea. Regular old orange pekoe and pekoe black, with fat free half and half and real sugar.

Probably, though I don't know how many. Why would I bother?

10. Is your bathroom clean?
Which one?

11. What’s your favorite piece of jewelry?
I think the silver necklace I got for mother's day that has the three disks that say Patience, Serenity, and Peace. Patience because I need more of it, Peace because I crave it, Serenity 'cause of the movie. :)

When I'm in pain, hell, yes.

Posting pictures of someone else.

Natalie J. Damschroder, don't forget the J.

Jacobus. It was Jeanne, until I got married and dumped it.

I Love You, Climax Blues Band

There won't be one, but just in case there is, they should play Danny Boy. They can do Back in Black while they're scattering the ashes. :)

I try to keep this blog PG-13, at least.

50. What was the first thing you thought of when you woke up?
Fuck, is it 6:21 already?

Okay, sometimes it's rated R.

LOL! I love your answers. Everyone thinks I'm the loudest friend. If it wasn't so true, I may have a complex.

Victoria said...

Misty is the loudest friend! :)
My 50 question thing didn't have 50 questions! Wah!
And R rating...definitely! LOL

Natalie J. Damschroder said...

Well, Misty, for anyone who doesn't also count you a friend, I'm sure I'm the one they write in. :)

V, did you notice which ones you're missing? (4, 20, 21, 39) I think B might have stripped them out.

And "stripped" is not unintentional. HA!

Jill Monroe said...

These were great! And I hope you get to San Fransisco wearing a pink ribbon (and purple, too)!

Thanks, Jill!
