A New Kind of Meme

Okay, we are all fond of memes. They make for easy posts, they are fun to fill out, it's fun to tag others and learn their responses, and we all get to learn a little something extra about one another. But, many of them ask the same things of you over and over (where you have lived, what movies you like, where you vacation, etc), so I have decided to make my own up (because I'm bored and would rather take the time to do this than clean the house -- oh, and it needs it too).

Viola:

How many teeth do you have?
28. Wow. That seems like a lot! And I had my wisdom teeth extracted when I was 14, so that would've been 32 teeth! That's a lot of chompers! Rarrrr!

Have you ever had braces?
Oh yeah. And headgear too. I blame a year of having to wear that torture device for my current drooling problem -- I'm a slobber monster when I sleep.

Name and tell us a bit about a pet you had as a child.
Marvin, my hamster, was a racing champion. He won a local pet store's race in his plastic ball when I was 8. We both got our picture in the paper.

Where were you born?
Ft. Collins, CO

How many siblings do you have?
1 full brother, 1 half brother, 1 adopted brother, 1 adopted sister, 1 step-brother, 1-step-sister. I am incommunicado with both step-siblings. All are younger. I am the oldest of this brood.

What was your high school's mascot?
The Ranger. Not entirely sure what that was. All the imagery revolved around a horse, but I'm still unclear on that one.

What was your favorite Halloween costume (either childhood or adulthood)?
One year I was a kangaroo. My grandpa made the costume for me and it was awesome. That same year, my brother was t-rex. He kept threatening to eat me.

What's your favorite smell?
Pavement after it's rained. Oh, I also like freshly mown grass.

What accomplishment are you most proud of?
There's a lot to choose from here: hmmm, is it vomiting on the side of my car after a night of drinking? No, that can't be it. Let's see here: marriage? house ownership? career? awards within career? graduating college magna cum laude? finishing a marathon? breaking up when it was hard to do? I think I have to go with marriage. I love my husband, and I honestly never thought (before I met him) that I was "marriage material."

Do you put the TP on the roll so that it feeds from the bottom or the top?
Over the top, please.

Have you ever broken anything?
Just men's hearts.

If you could travel anywhere, and the budget was not a factor, where would you go?
Italy. And I'd stay there for awhile too.

What is your dream job?
New York Times Book Reviewer

What is your most embarrassing moment?
I got depantsed in the 7th grade. In front of a lot of people.

What is your worst fear?
Being trapped in a close, tight space, like a mine, an elevator, under the bed sheets, in an MRI machine, in a coffin. (So, hubby? Please put your compulsions to their best use and triple check that I am truly dead before putting me in the ground!)

What year did you graduate high school?
1996

What was one of your new year's resolutions for 2007?
Run a 2nd marathon.

There you go. You guys know the drill: You are ALL tagged! Copy the text, paste it into your post, and answer the questions with your own, original tidbits of interesting info, and pass it on if you so desire. Happy meme-ing!

marvin is honestly my hero. i had hamsters who would only chew on each other's tails...which got boring after awhile.

teacherwoman said...

Read your post, but forgot to comment.. oops!

I think braces were bad enough, I couldn't imagine having the head gear!

I SOOO know what you are talking about when it comes to the smell of pavement after rain... But, I think it is more noticeable in FL due to the heat all day long... something about the smell of hot, wet pavement!

You should go for that dream job :)

Erin said...

Depantsing was more mortifying than pooping yourself? Please tell me you wore underware back then.
