Sunday Survey

Ok, I don't like to do surveys and other memes much, mostly because I think they are slightly self-indulgent and ofttimes boring, but today I did one anyway. I'm sorry. Will come up with substantive content later.



1. Do you like blue cheese salad dressing?
Love it, and will order it unless (1) a restaurant has real ranch dressing, or (2) I’m at Italian Village, in which case I always order O/V.

2. Favorite late night snack?
Bowl of cereal.

3. Do you own a gun?
No… I don’t feel comfortable around guns. I think E has one stashed somewhere though.

4. What’s your favorite drink at Starbucks or other specialty coffee shop?
8 oz. skinny latte

5. Do you get nervous before doctor appointments?
Only if I’m getting vials of blood drawn, and even then not too bad.

6. What do you think of hot dogs?
The perfect ballgame meal. I don’t even care what’s in it.

7. Favorite Christmas song?
Silent Night or Do You Hear What I Hear?, depending on my mood.

8. What do you prefer to drink in the morning?
Coffee most of the time, sometimes tea.

9. Can you do push-ups?
No I can’t, not even after a couple years of yoga. I have terrible upper body strength.

10. What’s your favorite piece of jewelry?
I don’t wear any jewelry. Used to wear a watch, but when it died in January, I stopped, and found that I kind of liked not obsessing over the time.

11. Favorite hobby?
Right now it’s reading books and writing blogs.

12. Do you have A.D.D.?
No. I’m kind of skeptical that anyone has ADD. I just think some people lack discipline.

13. What’s one trait that you hate about yourself?
Well, it’s not so much hate as that I wish I could trade my legs for E’s. Why is it so easy for men to have skinny legs?

14. The last disease you contracted?
A fever, and the only prescription was more cowbell.

15. Name 3 thoughts at this exact moment.
1) Is it totally lame that I’m filling this out?
2) Yes, I think it might be totally lame.
3) Oh well.

16. Name 3 drinks you regularly drink?
1) Coffee
2) Perrier (it is THE best sparkling water)
3) Tea

17. Current worry right now?
Financing law school in this terrible economy.

18. Current hate right now?
My noisy next door neighbors who never sleep and always chatter.

19. Favorite place to be?
In bed asleep… sans noisy neighbors piping through walls.

20. How did you ring in the New Year?
I don’t actually remember, which means we probably stayed in, watched movies, drank a bottle of champagne, and went to sleep. Will likely do the same this year.

21. Like to travel?
Love it. Hate flying though. Not for fear, but for the hassle.

22. Name three people who will complete Sunday Stealing this week:
I don’t watch football.

23. Do you own slippers?
Yes, but I suppose I never wear them. Perhaps it’s time to try.

24. What color shirt are you wearing?
Purple

25. Do you like sleeping on satin sheets?
I don’t know, I’ve never tried. I don’t suppose it would make a difference.

26. Can you whistle?
Yessum. I’m actually quite good at it when I’m sufficiently warmed up.

27. Favorite singer/band?
Imogen Heap/Wir Sind Helden

28. Could you ever make it 39 days on the show Survivor?
I can’t make just 1 day watching the damn thing. But no, cause I can’t even look at bugs, let alone eat them.

29. What songs do you sing in the shower?
For some reason, I always come back to I Could Write a Book, ala Harry Connick Jr., or tunes from The Sound of Music or Jesus Christ Superstar.

30. Favorite girl’s names?
Cambria

31. Favorite boy’s names?
Bryant or Cable

32. What’s in your pocket right now?
Nichts. But I’m taking donations.

33. Last thing that made you laugh?
I was watching Four Weddings & a Funeral earlier, and I laughed. It’s still funny, it turns out.

34. Like your job?
I like some things about it, and not so much other things.

36. Do you love where you live?
No, I can’t say that I do. I love Utah and I hate Utah, so I guess that averages out to Like.

37. How many TVs do you have in your house?
2.5, which is weird because we don’t watch a lot of TV.

38. Who is your loudest friend?
My old roomie L-N M-C is the loudest person I have ever known. You could hear her coming when she was still 5 minutes away.

39. Do you drive the speed limit or speed?
Depends on the weather, but even when it’s nice I don’t speed much anymore. Maybe 5-10 over occasionally.

40. Does someone have a crush on you?
Absotively.

41. What is your favorite book?
That’s hard. Classics for me include Othello, Catcher in the Rye, Cat’s Cradle, Dealing with Dragons, and Die Physiker. Probably others I can’t think of. I love to read.

42. What is your favorite candy?
European chocolate of any kind.

43. Favorite Sports Team?
Salt Lake Bees or Real Salt Lake

44. What were you doing 12 AM last night?
Watching the Last Samurai. It’s alright. Kind of emotionally manipulative, which I don’t really appreciate.

45. What was the first thing you thought of when you woke up today?
I’m not sure that I do any thinking when I first wake up, but if I did, it was probably “Have you ever contemplated the universal implications of creamed corn?”

My 8 year-old has ADD. Unfortunately, it's a very real thing.

I too have my doubts about ADD. It was a blanket thrown over ever misbehaving child for a while. Maybe they are honing in on the truth now.

You know, there is nothing wrong with being a little self-indulgent once in a while. Actually, I kinda consider the very act of blogging pretty self-indulgent.

And these question/answer thingies can be so much fun.

Yes, blogging is self-indulgent too, you're right. And I also agree that a little self-indulgence is permittable. (Although E saw this post last night, and said, "What is this? A survey? You're above that." To which I immediately replied that he could "Shut the hell up.") I do kind of enjoy the surveys, but I think few and far between should be the goal with them.
