if I don’t give you something a bit lighter than all this theological fare (Sorry, I’m currently living a boring life. Thesis, thesis, and more thesis with the occasional craft project or backed up sink thrown in.)
Thankfully, whenever I see a nice little meme that someone else has done, I’ll copy it and keep it in reserve for one of those days when I really don’t have much to say (but haven’t the discipline to just ignore the lure of the gray and white WordPress screen!)
This meme, held in reserve for a week and a half, is brought to you by Joanne of The Simple Wife.
What color are your socks right now?
I’m not wearing socks. It’s summer and I’m not working. Instead of my work-day loafers or pumps, I’m wearing slip-ons without socks.
What are you listening to right now?
The ceiling fan and my computer humming.
What was the last thing you ate?
Grapes and a bing cherry.
Can you drive a stick?
Nope. Never learned.
Last person you spoke to on the phone?
My landlady’s machine :-)
How old are you today?
What is your favorite sport to watch on TV?
I don’t do tv. Or sports. But when I have access to a tv, I enjoy watching figure skating (if that can be considered a sport). And watching a Nebraska football game with a whole crew of family and friends at my folks’ house is always nice.
What is your favorite drink?
Have you ever dyed your hair?
Once, in order to be “Posh Spice” for a costume party. I dyed it a darker version of itself.
Oh my. Too many to count. My mom’s Swedish meatballs. Lasagna. Spaghetti with Mom’s sauce. Cornbread and Chip-beef gravy. Tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches. Anna’s BBQ pizza. Green beans fresh from the garden. Sweet potatoes, baked with nothing on them. Homegrown tomatoes, sliced and eaten plain. I love food in general–and all of it in particular :-)
What is the last movie you watched?
Good question. Whatever it was, I didn’t so much WATCH it as I crocheted through it. (It was on Saturday the third. We pretty much had a marathon of movie watching. I can’t remember what any of the 3? movies we watched were. But I got a washcloth crocheted and half of a tea towel embroidered!)
Favorite day of the year?
How do you vent anger?
Dunno. It’s been a while since I got to the “need-a-vent” point with anger. (Knock on wood :-P) I find it much easier to experience provocation, pray, and let God release the anger.
What was your favorite toy as a child?
My little siblings. Books. My bicycle.
Spring, when the green grass pokes through the winter-moistened earth with stunning contrast. And when I can put my bare feet in said earth as I plant a vegetable garden.
Cherries or Blueberries?
Cherries if it’s in homemade (Mom-made) cherry pie using cherries from her tree.
Blueberries if I’m not footing the bill.
Bing cherries when I’m feeling like luxury.
Rent a townhouse. Have a roommate. Am hoping the landlord’s jimmying managed to get the kitchen sink draining properly.
When was the last time you cried?
What is on the floor of your closet right now?
A crate of professional paperwork.
A shelf of shoes. A laundry basket.
Same as always.
What are you most afraid of?
Being hung by my belly-button :-P
And other things I can’t mention so glibly. My brothers dying. That I’ll mope and pout my way through God’s plan instead of trusting and enjoying His provision. That I’ll squander my life on the temporal instead of investing in the eternal.
Plain, cheese, or spicy hamburgers?
Not a big burger fan, but I guess I like many things spicy.
Favorite dog breed?
Big. And outdoor, if at all possible.
Favorite day of the week?
Do people really have favorite days of the week?
How many states have you lived in?
Diamonds or pearls?
I’d love for that to be my dilemma, but I don’t have high hopes of it being so anytime soon (or anytime ever, for that matter.)
What is your favorite flower?
Well, ranunculus is my favorite flower NAME
And TULIPs are John Calvin approved :-)
I can’t really say. I like flowers, period, but don’t have a favorite.
Did you get an H1N1 vaccine?
Nope. I was poor and busy. But I do try to get the seasonal flu vaccine every year. Flu is nasty stuff, and since I have been known to work in institutions (hospitals and residence halls) and among immuno-compromised individuals (hospitals and nursing homes), I don’t like to risk it.
Please play along with one or all of the questions in the comments. I’d love to learn more about you!
