1. Do you like blue cheese?

Um. I love cheese like it's the best thing in the entire world, but there are a lot of cheeses I prefer to blue.

2. Have you ever smoked?

I smoked briefly when I was about 25, I think? In Columbia, Missouri during grad school, when a drunken roommate alerted me to how well it went with going to shitkicking country dive bars, misdressed (him in sockless topsiders and a polo shirt and khaki shorts, the complete preppie who looked a good deal like Gregory Peck). Smoking makes you dizzy, did you know that? It's like twice the drunk for half the money! But I didn't keep it up.

3. Do you own a gun?

Wtf. No.

4. What is your favorite flavor?

This is an impossible question. I agree with [personal profile] mistersmearcase about grapefruit, but also blood orange... and... hm... lemon... pomegranate... er, all things tangy?

5. Do you get nervous before doctor visits?

Yes, because I am fat and that is a fucking sin in doctor land, even if they're not absolute bastards about it.

6. What do you think of hot dogs?

I haven't liked a hot dog since I was a kid and we had regular dinners of hot dog and butter bean casseroles. They were okay for ball games. Generally do not like.

7. Favourite Christmas movie?

I love It's a Wonderful Life and A Christmas Story. The latter is so fucking Midwestern.

8. What do you prefer to drink in the morning?

English or Irish breakfast tea... or on a lazy day, loose leaf Assam

9. Do you do push-ups?

Hahahaha. I do go waterwalking. I like water. Especially salt water, like at the Richmond Plunge.

10. What’s your favourite piece of jewelry?

I barely remember ever to wear earrings any more. I have a ring that is a biggish rectangle (1.5 cm x 1 cm?) of cloudy moonstone over (so the jeweler told me) blue paper, in a silver setting. I love it.

11. Favourite hobby?

Reading. Writing.

12. Do you have A.D.D.?


13. What’s the one thing you hate about yourself?

Laziness. I mean, I quite enjoy it, but it does make life harder.

14. Middle name?


15. Name three thoughts right now?

Less than two weeks left without work, sigh. I love having Ruby and Rosie come over to hang out, play computer games, binge watch TV and sleep over.

16. Name 3 drinks you drink regularly.

tea, fizzy water, diet gingerale (or Coke)

17. Where's the question?


18. Current hate right now?

FB friends demonizing people who vote for the Greens (like me)

19. Favorite place to be?

armchair in my bay window, Devlin on my lap

20. How do you ring in the New Year?

I have never gotten the point of NYE

21. Where would you like to go?

Montreal, Newcastle, London, Belfast, Dublin

22. Name three people who will complete this?

Yeah, two friends already did it (hi, [personal profile] mistersmearcase and [profile] ironedorchid)

23. Do you own slippers?

Yes. I got a pair for my mom for Xmas, and they were so amazing that I then went and ordered a pair for myself.

24. What colour shirt are you wearing?

Faded red smocked

25. Do you like sleeping on satin sheets?


26. Can you whistle?


27. Favourite colour?

I have always hated this question. I love colors. I give students the challenge of coming up with as many as they can at one point during the poetry unit, and it's fun finding gradations and weird names. Go look at the list in Wikipedia: unbelievable.

28. Would you be a pirate?

In Black Sails it seems like the pirates' accountants have the better job.

29. What songs do you sing in the shower?

I don't

30. Favourite girls name?

Maude or Mairead or Roisin

31. Favourite boys name?


32. What’s in your pocket right now?

a barrette

33. Last person that made you laugh?

Rosie made me laugh when she asked if (she was chatting with a friend of mine on FB for a second while I attended to something) she would get me kicked off FB if she cursed. He'd teased her about the Cubs beating the Oakland As, and she was pissed. Me, I couldn't care less about baseball, and I approve of swearing.

34. Best toy as a child?

You know, when all is said and done, I think I liked my Sunshine Family dolls the best. Barbie dolls were fucking annoying. Hippie dolls were great fun.

35. Worst injury?

I haven't really had one.

36. Where would you love to live?

I still miss Chicago (Evanston) and maybe Madison, Wisconsin. But Oakland is nice. I'm terrified about getting priced out, though. Rent is crazier and crazier. And who's ever seen rent GO DOWN once it's gone up? I mean, sometimes house prices drop... but I don't think I've known rent to do that...

37. How many TVs do you have in your house?


38. Who is your loudest friend?

I don't think I have loud friends.

39. How many dogs do you have?


40. Does someone trust you?

I think lots of people do.

41. What's your favorite movie?

I don't know. Reds? Rang de Basanti?

42. What’s your favourite sweet?

German chocolate cake with pecan-caramel icing

43. What’s your favourite sports team?

Still the Green Bay Packers

44. What song do you want played at your funeral?

I have never considered this. "The Internationale", maybe
