Way more than you care to know

I stole this from a whole lot of people. And I'm bored. So you get to know way, way more than you ever wanted to. 

1.  Were you named after anyone?
No. I was named because my mom liked the name and she had aspirations of teaching her daughter to speak French. My mom doesn't speak French, so I don't fully understand this one. 
ETA: I was intentionally given the same initials as my dad as well. 

2.  When was the last time you cried?
I'm not sure. It's probably been a few weeks, and it was probably about a movie. I don't cry for my own purposes very often. 

3.  Do you like your handwriting?
Yes. I have teacher handwriting. It can look completely perfect if I slow down. But if I don't, it still looks pretty good. 

4.  What is your favorite lunch meat?
Ham. There is little I like more than a ham, swiss, and mayonnaise sandwich. 

5. Do you have kids?
Yep. Two of 'em. 

6.  If you were another person, would you be friends with you?
I like to think so! 

7.  Do you use sarcasm a lot?
Too often. Sometimes I feel like it's just my lazy attempt at humor. 

8.  Do you still have your tonsils?
I do not. I got them taken out when I was 18 and had strep and sinus infections back to back to back and they couldn't make them go away. 

9.  Would you bungee jump?
Nope. I am terribly afraid of heights and also very risk averse. 

10.  What's your favorite cereal?
Cinnamon Life. I loved it when I was little, and I still do. 

11.  Do you untie your shoes when you take them off?
I don't really have shoes that have to be tied. But I untie my kids' shoes when they take them off. 

12.  Do you think you are strong?
Physically, no. I am in terrible shape. But emotionally? I've managed things I didn't ever think I would be able to. 

13.  What is your favorite ice cream?
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

14.  What is the first thing you notice about people?
Usually hair. It's a pretty obvious thing. 

15.  Red or Pink?

16.  What is the least favorite thing about yourself?
My mid-section.

17.  Who do you miss the most?
Having enough time to do the things I want to do.

18.  What is the technique that you need to work on the most?

19.  What color shoes are you wearing?
I'm wearing black slippers. We don't wear shoes in the house.

20.  What was the last thing you ate?
I ate the last of the pineapple. 

21.  What are you listening to right now?
I'm halfway watching an episode of The West Wing.

22.  If you were a crayon, what color would you be?
Cerulean. It's been my favorite for a long time.

23.  Favorite smells?
Baking smells. Cookies, cakes, bread, whatever. It's just so enticing.

24.  How important are you political views?
Pretty important. They don't keep me up at night or anything, but I'm pretty firm in my convictions and I think a lot of the issues do really matter. 

25.  Mountain Hideaway or Beach House
Beach house

26.  Favorite sports to watch.
Absolutely none. We don't watch sports. 

27.  Hair Color?
Blonde. I'm basically back to my natural color now. 

28.  Eye Color?

29.  Do you wear contacts?
No, but I wear glasses. And I have to wear them all the time or I get terrible headaches. 

30.  Favorite Food?
Indian food in general.

31.  Scary movies? Or happy endings?
Definitely happy endings. I do not enjoy scary movies. I will watch them, but it's highly unlikely I would do so completely on my own.

32.  Last Movie you watched?
Probably the Cirque du Soleil one. I don't remember if I've watched one with the husband since I saw that one with Ansel in the theater.

33.  What color shirt are you wearing?

34.  Summer or Winter?
Summer. I am so tired of being cold.

35.  Favorite dessert?
Brownies. Or cake. Cake and a brownie?

36.  Strength Training or Cardio?
Ugh. Do I have to?

37.  Computer or TV?
Definitely computer. I want to interact with my entertainment.

38.  What book are you reading?
Of Human Bondage by W. Somerset Maugham, Spontaneous Happiness by Dr. Andrew Weil, A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin, Mary Pride's Complete Guide to Getting Started in Homeschooling by Mary Pride, Worth the Weight by Mara Jacobs, and The Rest of Her Life by Laura Moriarty. 

39.  What is on you mouse pad?
No mouse pad. I have a Macbook Pro and the kids have an iMac with a touchpad.

40.  Favorite sound?

41.  Favorite Genre of music?
I guess most of it falls under "new wave," though that's probably not how I would describe it.

42.  What is the farthest you have been from home?

43.  Do you have a special talent?
I remember a lot of random bits of information. And I'm generally fairly talented when it comes to uses for ingenuity. 

44.  Where were you born?
Decatur, Georgia

45.  Where are you living now?
Near Augusta, Georgia. Oddly, despite having been born in Georgia in 1983, I never lived in the state until 2009.

46.  What color is your house?

47.  What color is your car?
Navy blue.

48.  Do you like answering 48 questions?
Well, it passed the time! 



  1. C'mon teacher lady. Let's see that handwriting. I want an uploaded photo of its perfection. Nicole is a fancy french name? Huh, I guess it is.

    1. I'll have to do that!

      And it's not a fancy French name, but Nicole is a French name :)

  2. What a fun questionnaire! Love some of these answers. The smell of baking bread and cookies... yummm...

    1. I'm rather fond of it! I don't have it often, though. I really don't like ice cream all that much. I'd much rather have a baked dessert item.

  4. 36. Strength Training or Cardio?
    Ugh. Do I have to?

    Ah ha ha. Couldn't have said it better myself.

    1. It's so sad. I wish I wasn't this way.

  5. I love this old school meme!! :)

    1. Oh, the early days of the internet....

  6. Fun!

    I am completely obsessed with Game of Thrones right now. I'm halfway through A Dance with Dragons and can hardly wait for the tv series to come back on HBO.

  7. Hi, Nice post thanks for sharing. Would you please consider adding an intro to my website on your next post? I will return the favor. Please email me back. Thanks!
