50 Mostly Random Things That You Never Wanted to Know
1. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE? No, I guess there weren’t any people my parents liked enough at the time.
2. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED? Today
3. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING? Depends on which handwriting I use, it kinda morphs.
4. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH MEAT? Hmmm, lunch meat isn’t my favorite but smoked salmon (lox) on a bagel with garlic herb cream cheese is divine.
5. DO YOU HAVE KIDS? Really long story…
6. IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU? Hard to say, I mean, we’d have so much in common and be so alike. I wonder if we’d argue a lot?
7. DO YOU USE SARCASM? Afraid so.
8. DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS? Yes.
9. WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP? No, definitely not. I hate (rather despise!) the feeling of falling.
10. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CEREAL? Something with cocoa, preferably one that’s organic with evaporated cane juice so I don’t feel so guilty about it.
11. DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF? Not if I can help it but my winter boots demand it and I have another pair that I don’t want to risk stretching out.
13. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ICE CREAM? Basically, anything with a chocolate or coffee base. Preferably with more chocolate in it (pieces, chips, chunks). Ben and Jerry’s New York Super Fudge Chunk is great (though the white chocolate chunks diminish it slightly) and so is their Coffee Heath Bar Crunch, Mocha Chocolate Chip in all its variations is likewise fantastic. Now, I’m really wishing we had ice cream…
14. WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE? Their “vibe” and body language.

24. WHO WAS THE LAST PERSON YOU TALKED TO ON THE PHONE? Jill.
25. DO YOU LIKE THE PERSON WHO SENT THIS TO YOU? Yes, I like all of them (I’ve been sent it several times). It would really be horrible, however, for someone to find out via this question that the person they sent this list to *didn’t* like them – kinda like breaking up with someone via text.

38. White walls or colors? Colors, no question.

46. WHOSE ANSWERS ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO GETTING BACK? Just bring ’em on!
47. HOW DID YOU MEET YOUR SPOUSE/SIGNIFICANT OTHER? He was speaking at my church.
