50 (well almost 50) Things About Me

If you read this.....FILL IT OUT!!! Learn 50 things about your friends and let them learn 50 things about you!  I got this from Robin at; who She got it from someone else.

1. How tall are you barefoot?
5'5"  I used to be taller but because of a three level spinal fusion back in 1992 and getting old...I have shrunk almost 3 inches. YIKES !

2. Have you ever smoked before?
Well, this is a touchy one.  I never had the habit and I never inhaled (that's a true made me dizzy) but I did in my past, puff on a few cigarettes from time to time. However, it's been many, many years and again I'm happy to say I was never addicted to the nasty things. I guess I was a social puffer.

3. Do you own a gun?
I have a squirt gun...does that count?

4. What's your favorite sport to watch?
None...I don't care to watch any of them. About 5 minutes of the Jerry Springer show is enough sports for me.

5. How many letters are in your crush's name?
There are 4 letters in that special name

6. What do you think of hotdogs?
The ones from Costco are wonderful about twice a year.  And maybe once or twice one off the bar-b-que tastes good.  Again, I'm not addicted to them, because I always get horrible heart burn and it's not worth it.

7. What's your favorite Christmas song?
"Mary Did You Know"

8.What do you prefer to drink in the morning?
decaf Yuban with lots of liquid Coffee Mate (the unflavored one)

9. Are you in love?
I wish....

10. Have you ever done ecstacy?
Heavens no, only in the last few years did I even know what it was. When I was young, it was a state of mind.

11. Do you like Spam?
No, not really.  I had a couple cans in my emergency food supply when we were expecting some horrible thing to happen when the year 1999 became 2000.  Later in 2000 I gave it to the food bank.

12. Do you like painkillers?
I'm allergic to all the so-called good ones. So even when I had back and other surgeries all I got was Tylenol.

13. What is your secret weapon to lure in the opposite sex?
Believe me at my advanced's much too late for any of that kind of business. I don't have the energy for such things.

14. Do you own a knife?
Just the ones in the kitchen drawer.

15. Do you have A.D.D.?
Nope. Unless it stands for Advanced Dietary Disorder.

16. Full initals?

23. Current hate?
Robin is right..hate takes alot of energy.  But I do absolutely dislike and am totally sick of my job.  Something has to change & soon.

anywhere but at the workplace, I'd rather go to the dentist than go to work.

25. Least favorite place to be?

It was a little sip of champagne for a wedding toast in 1991.  I just don't like alcohol period.

33. What songs do you sing in the shower?
"Oh What A Beautiful Morning" then I go right into "Take This Job and Shove It."

34. As a child, what did you fear was going to get you at night?
I don't remember ever being afraid at night.

36. What's the last thing that made you laugh?
Something that was said at the MANDATORY staff meeting I had to attend today on my day off. It was so ridiculous, it was funny.

41. Who is your loudest friend?
I can't think of any, most are pretty laid back, unless we're all together and then it's a different story.

42. Who is your most silent friend?
Gabi, my little flat faced kitty.  She doesn't meow, she just kind of squeeks.

43. Does someone have a crush on you?
Again, just Gabi...she thinks I'm wonderful.  She loves to be near me all the time, she worships and adores me.

49. What were you doing at 12 am last night?
sleeping..I knew I had to get up this morning and prepare myself mentally for that stupid meeting at work.

50. What was the first thing you thought when you woke up this morning?
"Oh rats...I have to go to that stupid meeting at work and I'd rather go to a movie."

Finally! But since there wasn't a 27, 35, or 39 I guess you only really learned 47 things about me! Now I hope someone else will do this and pass on the results to myself and Robin.       Linda

I love learning about people. The trick is remembering all I learn. lol
Tried this once, and saved the results. so many that I'd saved close to 50 and was still going. No way could I remember it all. Since I read this I will answer the questions and email it to you and Robin.
