One: People who have been tagged write their answers on their blog and replace any question that they dislike with a new, original question.

Two: Tag eight some people. Don't tag who tagged you.

I'm not going to tag anyone either, but would love to read the answers.


[1] Make a list of 5 things you can see:
Pics of family on the wall.  Desk fan. Filing cabinets.  Computer & monitor.  Bankers boxes. 

[2] What do you do when you can't sleep?
Read porn fanfic or if it's really bad, get up and play WoW.

[3]What are your favorite non-fandom hobbies. 
I knit or play the piano.  Both are great for stress relief.

[4] What's your favorite song?
I don't really have ONE favorite song.  I'm not even sure I have a favorite TYPE of music anymore.  I listen to different types each day.  Blues one day, country & western the next with different types of rock & roll thrown in for good measure.  There's also lots of classical music that I love as well, but when I listen to that I like to give it all my focus and not be doing something else.

[5] Do you nap a lot?
On the weekends.  Nothing like a little power nap to get the engines going again.

[6] What was your first car?

1974 Maroon and white Dodge Dart.  The car from hell as it took 20 minutes to start in the mornings and heaven forbid I not be in the thing to tap, rev or just plain baby the thing to keep it going.  If it stalled out, I had to shut it down, wait like 10 minutes and start the whole procedure over again.  Some sitcom did a little skit about this years ago.

[7] What's currently annoying you?
Work, work, WORK!!!

[8] What was the last thing you ate today?
Croissant and Arizona green tea with ginseng and honey.

[9] What was the last text message you received?
I went to the movies instead of going straight home last night and sent Daughter-type a message to take the doggies out.  Work has been a real pain and I just wanted to break the routine a bit.  Her reply was, What about taxes?  I've been after her for a month to be around on the weekend some time but, as should be obvious to me by now, her time is way more valuable than mine.

[10] What websites do you always visit when you go online?
AOL and Comcast for e-mail.  Netflix.  Various blogs including www.yarnharlot.ca/blog/ and www.dphowell.com/.  Amazon if I'm looking to buy something.

[11] What was the last thing you bought?
Two books about the Vietnam war and a cd.  Yay Amazon.

[12] What are you listening to right now?
Nothing yet, but it's Southern Rock day.

[13] What was the last movie you saw?
The Fast and the Furious 4.  Woo hoo.  Gotta see those types of movies on the big screen.

[14] What is your zodiac sign?
Aries

[15] What is your favorite weather, and why?
I like dry, cool to cold-ish weather.  Sun is optional.  Heat and humidity gives me headaches.  Ugh.

[16] How far do you live from your place of employment?
About three miles.

[17] Do you have any siblings?
One sister three years younger.  One Half-sister and brother, eleven and eight years older from our mother's previous marriage.  One step-sister from my father's current marriage. 

[18] What is your favorite color?
Blue

[19] Who is your favorite actor or actress?
Ok, I'm a real obsessive nutcase when it comes to this.  When I see an actor in a show/movie that I really like, I go on a mission and hunt down everything they've ever done.  Even if it's a type of show/movie I wouldn't normally like.  If he's in it, I'm watching it.  I've seen a lot of stinkers in my day.  Right now I'm crushing over Bruce Willis, yes I'm a late bloomer in many ways.

[20] Say something to the person who tagged you:
Hope to read some responses back!

Name a CD you own that you think no-one else on your friendslist does:

Blues Brothers featuring Sonny Terry, Big Bill Broonzy and Brownie McGhee. Now in my own defense, I only saw Blues Brothers and the $1.99 price tag. So imagine my surprise when it wasn't THE Blues Brothers. But it has actually turned out to be one of my favorite blues cds. Go figure.
http://www.amazon.com/Blues-Brothers-Big-Bill-Broonzy/dp/B00005AWKK/ref=sr_1_48?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1218712209&sr=1-48

Name a book you own that you think no-one else on your friendslist does:
A Don Johnson biography. Not sure if its official or unoffical. Can't even find it on Amazon. Yes, I've been a rabid fangirl all my life. It's not a new phase.

Name a movie you own on DVD/VHS/whatever that you think no-one else on your friendslist does:
I'm an Olivie Gruner fan. I have too many of his movies to keep track of and some of them are real stinkers. But he's just so yummie to watch. Lean, graceful, so very toned. Drool, drool. I block out all dialog and plot though.
http://www.amazon.com/Mercenary-Olivier-Gruner/dp/B00005MM60/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1218712925&sr=1-2
http://www.amazon.com/Mercenary-2-Claudia-Christian/dp/6305426643/ref=sr_1_22?ie=UTF8&s=video&qid=1218713126&sr=1-22

Name a place that you have visited that you think no-one else on your friendslist has:

I'm not sure if this place has a name. We lived in Belgium for three years and there was a canal/lock system we would pass on one of the main highways from Mons Belguim going to Luxemburg. This thing was huge and took the barges up a hill that had to be at least a quarter of a mile long. Steep too. So on the few occations we were on that road, and a barge was coming we'd stop and watch it load up and chug up the hill. This was twenty-five years ago so please excuse the lack of memory.

Name a piece of technology or any sort of tool you own that you think no-one else on your friendslist has:

Hmm...Can't say sewing or knitting because I know quite a few practice those arts. I'd also say an apple peeler/corer/slicer but those of you who like to cook might have that as well. So, I'm gonna renege say an antique pedal operated sewing machine. It was passed on to me from my father-in law when he died. He actually used it too!
