20 questions meme  
I've been tagged by colleen2328


The rules are:

A. People who have been tagged must write their answers on their blog and replace any question that they dislike with a new, original question. Who ever does that?

B. Tag eight people. Don't refuse to do that. Don't tag who tagged you.

Marie (people who keep forgetting to pronounce the 'a'), Re-Re, and when I was working at a software company about 15 years ago, Secret Weapon and Maria Conchita.

2. How do you style your hair?

Slow cooker.

Well, the economy has pretty much sucked and shit rolls down hill.

10. What's your favorite dessert?

Orlando Bloom

Correction: Orlando Bloom shirtless wearing a dog collar. :)

11.How long does it take you to get ready in the morning?

5 minutes. 10 minutes if I take time to tie my shoes before leaving.

livejournal (duh), gmail and Mirrormere and always all my financial ones.

No classes. But I'm currently owner of a drive-in restaurant that I work at.

14. Do you like to clean?

15. What's the last song that got stuck in your head?

I can't hear any music over the voices in my head.

16. What's the last movie you saw?

While you were Sleeping on DVD. Yes, I'm a sucker for that romantic comedy.

17. What's better: a sense of humor or creativity?

I never liked having to choose between the two so I decided to combine both.

18. What is your least favorite thing to do that you have to do every day?

Eating. Seriously, can't we just walk around with an IV drip?

19. What was the most thrilling, risky thing you had ever done?

For my birthday, Joe had gotten me air time with a stunt pilot on a biplane. We did loop-de-loops and dives in the air. God I loved that!

20. What are you most looking forward to in the coming year?

The same thing every year - watching how my children grow and mature into the wonderful beings they are now. :)

Whew!

Had sex in a camp ground restroom with my ex-husband.

LOL! I probably wouldn't want to post that in my blog either. :) It's okay - your secret's safe here. *winks*

And you seem to have a great sense of humor too Jackie - don't worry. (You would have to to read my stuff).

I want to die peacefully in my sleep like my grandfather. Not screaming and yelling like the passengers in his car.
It was the biggest thrill of my life when Joe Glasgow gave me a ride in his two-seater airplane. I wasn't even scared when he put it in a dive until the alarms went off. More fun than a roller coaster, and it was the first time I was ever in an airplane.

and don't worry about the voices. I talked to them, and they like you.
Maria: BJ - 314 is loveslave_o_spike on December 13th, 2008 11:40 pm (UTC)
LOL! I hear you on that (the dying peacefully, that is) but I'm pretty sure with the crazy things I do, it might not be.

Then again, if you have lived a full life, you do tend to go out peacefully, or it would seem.

Wasn't it like a roller coaster though? I mean, the dives and then the loops and that feeling in the pit of your stomach. God! Who is this Joe of which you speak? And how long ago was that if that was your first time in a plane? I know - I'm a nosy one. :)

I'm glad they like me. I worry about that...

You mentioned napping while driving, and that reminded me of the story of Grandpa peacefully sleeping when the car crashed killing the passengers.
I was the mother of three, around 31, and Joe was a friend of my husband's. A graduate of MIT studying at OU, who was the first man to acknowledge that I had a functioning brain.
He's probably dead of old age by now. I admired him tremendously.
Speaking of voices, I wonder if I can make this work:

Hey! He's wearing overalls!!! Although, I don't know of anyone in my fic that looks like that! LOL!

I can't stop staring at the hand puppet though.

Ah, now I see what you meant by Grandpa. Whoa. Not okay.

And Joe does sound like the kind of guy that would make an impression.

10. What's your favorite dessert?

Orlando Bloom

Correction: Orlando Bloom shirtless wearing a dog collar. :)

Maria: Orli - slave_o_spikeslave_o_spike on December 13th, 2008 11:36 pm (UTC)
I know!!!! Who wouldn't?

Well, whoever wouldn't...well...I don't want to know them...

*points to icon*

I know someone who wouldn't want that dessert... but we always tell him he's deranged. *g*
Maria: Orlando Cute!slave_o_spike on December 13th, 2008 11:46 pm (UTC)
You know - even my hubby who is straight as straight can be, when he first caught sight of the elf in the movies, he was like, 'whoa, look at the elf.'

So there you go...

Of course, that doesn't mean he wants to do him...I think...
liriel1810: DorkOliriel1810 on December 13th, 2008 11:49 pm (UTC)
That's so cute! I firmly believe that Orlando could turn any man gay.

Maybe in the deepest darkest recesses of his mind where his inner adventurer lives, your hubby is shagging Orlando? (and I nearly typed 'deppest', which would be a whole other ball of wax! Does he think Johnny's cute too? *g*)
Maria: Joker - Why so Serious?slave_o_spike on December 13th, 2008 11:52 pm (UTC)
After seeing Sweeney Todd, no. :)
liriel1810: DorkOliriel1810 on December 13th, 2008 11:57 pm (UTC)
LOL I haven't seen that yet, not sure I will either. Show him Finding Neverland... I so want to do Johnny's J.M. Barrie in that!
Maria: Frodo doesn't live here anymoreslave_o_spike on December 14th, 2008 01:07 am (UTC)
So...you want me to show hubby a movie where he could envision fucking Johnny Depp?

And people call me twisted...
liriel1810: uno dork winkliriel1810 on December 16th, 2008 08:27 am (UTC)
LOL Um, yeah, okay, so maybe I've been swiped over once with the 'twisted' brush too. *g*
