I saw a MEME and stole it!

I have stolen this from Old NFO and U.S.A. Admiral.

Simple rule: Change all the answers so that they apply to you.

1. What is your occupation?
Depends on who you ask. If you ask me, I'm an educator and teacher of English. If you ask one particular person that sits on our board, I'm a glorified clerical worker. I hope my students would say my occupation is teacher and mentor.

2. What color are your socks right now?
Flesh. The only thing on my feet are toenails in need of a new paint job and pedicure.

3. What are you listening to right now?
Everybody Loves Raymond. Oddly it is an episode for Robert's birthday. His line of the evening? Essentially: "Happy Birthday to the middle-aged man who lives with his parents." Yeah. Ironic, eh?

4. What was the last thing that you ate?
Steak, mushrooms, and peas. Yummy!

5. Can you drive a stick shift?
Yep. I once bought a car that required the salesperson to teach me how to drive stick before I took it off the lot. I hated red lights that day.

6. Last person you spoke to on the phone?
Haven't spoken on the phone since yesterday. I believe it was my mother.

7. Do you like the person who tagged you?
I love her to pieces! She's really awesome. Oh, yeah, I tagged myself.

8. How old are you today?
39 years, 5 months, and 22 days old.

9. What is your favorite sport to watch?
Hockey. The season begins again in a few months. :) GO WINGS! (Think I just threw up a little in my mouth.)

10. What is your favorite drink?
Cherry Coke. What? Oh, o.k....Bud in a nice, cold long-neck bottle (or something mixed with vodka).

11. Have you ever dyed your hair?
Since I was 16. Variations of blonde and red have adorned my cranium. I tried a temporary black rinse, once. I thought it was cool (fair skin, blue eyes, & red lipstick), but, one guy friend always said he liked me as a blonde and I took his advice.

12. Last time you hugged your child? question.

13. Favorite food?
I'm really hating food these days, but if I have to choose, I love French fries. I try to avoid them, though. Of the stuff I can eat, what I find most favorite is watermelon. (Just remembered...that mixes with vodka really well. I'll have to keep that nugget locked in my brain for my trip.)

14. What was the last movie you watched?
The Robert-Downey, Jr.-is hot movie. Huh? There was a title?

15. Favorite day of the year?
Well, until I have one of "those" dates to remember, I'd have to say this year it will be June 20th-the last day of school.

16. How do you vent anger?
I cuss. Everything becomes a f'kn something or other. I get angry, really grrrrr, it lasts about ten minutes, and them I'm over it. Usually. I don't have the attention span to hold grudges, nor the memory to remember why I should be really angry. In fact, anger is such a draining emotion that I try to avoid it. I choose love. ;)

17. What was your favorite toy as a child?
I had mostly books and dolls. I did get a hippity-hop that was fun. Does my basketball count? I usually opted for dancing around to music. Still do.

18. What is your favorite season?
Fall. I like the scent in the air and the cool breezes mixed with the warm sun.

19. Ocean or pool?
Pool, but only if it is indoors or if the peering eyes of others are completely blocked.

20. Cherries or Blueberries?
I love them equally! I had cherries Wednesday and yesterday. I had blueberries Sunday.

21. Do you want your family & friends to participate?
If you feel like doing this, go for it!

22. Who is the most likely to respond?
Spinster cat-ladies. You know, people like me.

24. Living arrangements?
See # 22 and # 3. Over the summer, I will have a condo to myself, 800 some odd miles away from here.

25. When was the last time you cried?
I find myself whimpering a bit on the drive to or from work. It is when I do the most thinking about my life.

26. What is on the floor of your closet?
Shoes, a few hangers, some clothing that's too big that I am going to donate.

27. Who is the family or friend you have known the longest that you are tagging?
Not tagging anyone.

28. What did you do last night?
Unwound from the week, watched t.v., and slept.

29. Hawaii or Florida? Neither?
Neither. My crazy relatives live in Florida and Hawaii requires too much time in a plane. I'd rather be sitting on a deck, watching the sunset. That deck needs to be attached to a house that has a view of a lake, but up high enough that I don't have worry about flooding. I'm a worrier.

30. What inspires you?
Whenever people triumph over personal obstacles, physical or otherwise.

31. What are you most afraid of?
Don't want to talk about it. Don't want to kill the buzz.

32. Plain, cheese or spicy hamburgers?
Cheeseburger with mushrooms and bacon. (French fries & Cherry Coke)

33. Favorite dog breed?
The cute, playful ones of any size--generally mutts. I was attacked by a dog when I was little, so I tend to feel a little apprehensive around dogs that can be trained to attack.

34. Favorite day of the week?
Saturday. I don't have to get up at 4:00-4:30 in the morning.

35. How many states have you lived in?
Three (NJ, CA, & NC).

36. Do you like these questionnaires?

37. What kind of car did your very first date drive?
Ummm..I know it had a huge back seat and it was a convertible. That's all I remember.

38. What is the Last book you read?
A Clockwork Orange.

39. What are your hobbies?
Blogging, trying to find creative things to do. When I had more time, I used to go out to hear bands play. I intend to pick that guitar back up over the summer, too. I'll be teaching myself, so I'm sure I'll be playing it ass-backwards. (But, I'll have fun.)

40. Can you still make the Hula Hoop stay around your waist?
I rock at hula hoopin'! Well, I used to.
