Friday's List of the Week

"Borrowed" from Stitch Bitch, who got it from Hip to be Squared.
  • What is in the back of your car? The seats fold down in the back of the Mazda and the currently are and there isn't anything back there right now as I got the car washed yesterday and put the seats back up.
  • What color is your toothbrush? The Oral B Triumph is white and silver, with a blue ring. My "manual" toothbrush is purple, the color of royalty.
  • Name one person that made you smile today? NJM, because when I got to work this morning there were two glazed donuts from Rawlin's on my desk. She's the best.
  • What were you doing at 8 am this morning? Heading to work, listening to the CBS World News Roundup (as I try to do each morning).
  • What were you doing 45 minutes ago? Playing in the rabbit hole of the Internet.
  • What is your favorite candy bar? Do I have to pick just one? Today, it's probably this one. Just this morning, Amy in Ohio posted this quiz on recognizing candy bars from their middles. There are lots of other quizzes there, so have some time if you go to the site.
  • Have you ever been to a strip club? Yes, but it's not my thing. Really. Honest.
  • What is the last thing you said aloud? Be there in a minute.
  • What is the best ice cream flavor? Ice Cream again? In the interest of full disclosure, I may have eaten a whole pint of Ben and Jerry's Pistachio, Pistachio by myself the other night. And last night I polished of the dregs of some Raspberry Chocolate Chip.
  • What was the last thing you had to drink? Nantucket Nectar's Half and Half
  • What are you wearing right now? My jammies, which tonight consist of a t-shirt and lounge pants - it's damn cold under the desk where the A/C blows right on them. Plus the poison ivy on the legs is not yet 100% gone.
  • What was the last thing you ate? Dinner - hamburgers and hot dogs (and maybe a little ice cream).
  • Have you bought any new clothing items this week? No.
  • When was the last time you ran? Ha, ha. Funny. Remember, there's a gym in my building, but it's really far from my office.
  • The last sporting event you watched? Hey it's the British Open, but also "a little baseball" for LBA before bedtime.
  • What is your favorite flavor of popcorn? Lots of butter and salt (as enjoyed at the movies on Wednesday night)
  • Who is the last person you sent a comment/message on Facebook? Stinkypaw and Eileen, who commented on my status update yesterday.
  • Ever go camping? Not in many years. But I would do it again. Perhaps a Father-Son weekend will be planned.
  • Do you take vitamins daily? No, should I?
  • Do you go to church every Sunday? No, but that's OK. God Understands.

  • Do you like Chinese food over pizza? Yes.
  • Do you drink your soda with a straw? Sometimes
  • What did your last text message say? I get text messages when baseball games end, so it told me that the score of the Nationals game.
  • Are you some-one's best friend? Yep, and I'm married to her.
  • What are you doing tomorrow? Going to two wedding ceremonies (and getting LBA a haircut, which is long overdue)
  • Look to your left, what do you see? The rest of the living room
  • What color is your watch? I haven't been wearing one recently, which is weird because I normally feel out of sorts when I don't have one on. But the normal watch is a boring old Timex with a brown band.

  • Do you use chap stick? I prefer the stuff in the little round blue container
  • What is your birthstone? Blue Topaz
  • What is your favorite number? A new number has been decided on, 12, the month of my birth and my two sons, and the day of the month my true love was born.
  • Do you have a dog? No, allergic. But I would get a cat . . .
  • Last person you talked to on the phone? My sister
  • Have you met anyone famous? Several hockey players, a few baseball players, but the banner night was when my mother and I got to meet Brian Dennehy after seeing him in Death of a Salesman and getting the bonus of meeting Robert Goulet, who my mother loved.
  • How many states have you lived in? Just two, New York and Maryland
  • Ever go to college? Yes.
  • Do you dye your hair? No
  • Biggest annoyance in your life right now? Looking after the lawn and the yard.
  • Last song listened to? I don't listen to music that much in the car, I'm more of WTOP guy.

  • What color is your car? Blue, it has been referred to by Mrs. BA as the "blueberry"
  • Do you like cats? Yes.

I might just "borrow" this as well. Love it because we get to know you a little more. Your birthstone is my favorite stone/colour. I just did the test, and I suck at it, even if I do enjoy my chocolates!

Lana Gramlich said...

Careless w/a can-do attitude? *ROFL!*
I always wanted to go to the 6 Flags in New Orleans. Then the whole Katrina thing blew through & that was the end of THAT. I haven't been to an amusement park in 8 years now & it's really starting to bug me. Unfortunately Charles isn't an amusement park type of person, so I don't suspect that anything's going to be happening in that vein any time soon...

My mother always said tan fat looks better than white fat. But the dude proves it is true of skin generally. He's one of the whitest people I know; he practically glows.

Brave Astronaut said...

Paw - steal away. And we've already discussed chocolates.

Lana - come and visit and we will go to the Six Flags here. We can send Charles to some museum and go ride the roller coasters until we throw up.

Anna - Your mother is a very wise woman :)
