80 Questions

Since judiang did this meme, I thought I should as well. Watching the Gold Medal Match between Canada and Sweden for women's curling. Go Canada! (Or Sweden!)

1. What curse word do you use the most?
The f-word (just ask the kitties).

2. Do you own an iPod?
No. I own two. An 80GB classic (almost full) and a 16GB Nano (purple).

3. What person on your flist do you talk to the most?
Online, it would be judiang & elsaf, but via phone calls, my sister. Seeing 'em in person is about even for all three. Heh.

4. What time is your alarm clock set to?
Mine has 2 time settings. I usually have it set for 6:30am, but the alternate time is 7:30am (for when we get a 2-hour delay, I always sleep in an hour more).

5. Do you still remember the first person you kissed?

6. Do you remember where you were on September 11, 2001?
I was at work. The secretary told me that an airplane had crashed into the World Trade Center and we tried to access a news station on the Channel One TV in my room. (We weren't successful - my room never got a decent cable signal.)

7. Would you rather take the picture or be in the picture?
Much rather take the photo. Though I've taken photos with my shadow in it to prove I was there. :-)

8. What was the last movie you watched?
On DVD, Coraline. In the theater, Avatar.

9. Do any of your friends have children?
A few.

10. Has anyone ever called you lazy?
I often call myself lazy. I tell my students this all the time. Why else would I love chemical symbols and equations so much? ;-)

11. Do you ever take medication to help you fall asleep?
They never work for me, so why bother?

12. What cd is currently in your cd player?
My car has a CD/MP3 player and it currently has an MP3 CD in it. With an assortment of music. I just recently managed to purchase all of the David Tennant read audiobooks by Cressida Cowell (the Viking books), 3 out of 5 of which were CD (the other two, audio tape). But most of the time, I buy MP3 albums. (Just recently purchased a year's subscription to Big Fish Doctor Who audios, so lots of stuff to download in the next year - woo!)

13. Do you prefer regular or chocolate milk?
Actually, I'd prefer vanilla over chocolate or regular.

14. Has anyone told you a secret this week?
If I'd been told a secret, I wouldn't tell you that I knew it... ;-)

15. When was the last time you had Starbucks?
Probably since my last trip to Chicago. In this area, I'd prefer going to Boston Stoker over Starbucks.

16. Can you whistle?
Yup. Good at it, too.

17. What is the first thing you notice about the opposite sex?
Like Judi, the eyes.

18. What are you looking forward to?
Being done with my thesis.

19. Did you watch cartoons as a child?
Yup, and I still watch cartoons today.

20. Do you own any band t-shirts?
I sit on a Squirrel Nut Zippers shirt in my den. (Old raggedy office chair. Shirt makes it a more comfy seat.) But I think that's it.

21. What will you be doing in one hour?
The same as I'm doing now - watching the Olympics. (Hopefully no longer answering these questions.)

22. Is anyone in love with you?
No idea - probably not.

23. What was the last song you heard?
No idea. I finished listening to The Web of Fear earlier today. And then started listening to Fury from the Deep.

Don't remember. I almost cried after Joannie Rochette performed her short program.

25. Are you on a desktop computer or a laptop?

26. Are you currently wanting any piercings or tattoos?

27. What’s the weather like?
Snowing. I'm staying at the parental's tonight so I don't have to drive in that again. Was an icky drive here.

28. Would you ever date a girl/guy covered in tattoos?
I'm more concerned about their personality than their decoration.
