Customized Scattergories

Sparky tagged me (and everyone else who reads her blog!) with a list of questions I'm supposed to answer. I took some out and added some in, so mine is a little different from hers. Go to her site to see the original, and if you want to play, you can use hers, mine, or make up your own! Here goes!

Who do you look the most like in your family? I don't look at all like anyone in my family, although there is apparently a distant cousin I've never met that I favor.

Do you like your handwriting? Uh, no, it's horrible. If I hadn't learned to type, few people would be able to read what I write.

Do you prefer pants or skirts? Skirts almost exclusively.

Smooth jazz or rock? Smooth jazz

Do you have kids? Yes, 3 amazing sons here and one in heaven

What is your favorite lunchmeat? Turkey, but I also like "roast beast"

If you were someone else would you be friends with you? I think I would, I'm pretty friendly. I KNOW I'd be friends with my kids if we'd been kids together

Are you sarcastic? I can be when I'm trying to be funny

Are you good at telling jokes? No, I'm the worst, I usually end up telling the punch line first by mistake and then I get all confused

Do you cry easily? Didn't used to, but the older I get the more tender I get

Do you have your tonsils? Yep, that is one of the few things left, lol

Would you bungee jump? Oh, yeah, and sky dive and hot air balloon and parasail and... but my hubby has made me promise to wait until he's gone, so I'll be one of those 90 year old daredevils!

Who has been your favorite President in your lifetime? President Reagan

What is your favorite ice cream? Ben and Jerry's New York Super-Fudge Chunk. That, or plain vanilla from Publix

What's the first thing you notice about people? Their eyes and smile

What is the last movie you went to the theatre to see? Madagascar II just a few days ago (IMAX!)

What book are you currently reading? "What Matters Most" by Luanne Rice

Who do you miss the most? Our 3rd son

Shoes or barefoot? barefoot

What color do you prefer, red or blue? RED

Who was the last person you talked to on the phone? My mother

What was the last thing you ate? Pumpkin bars with cream cheese frosting, yummy!

What is your least favorite feature? My eyes

What do you listen to? Oh, my, it depends on what I'm doing. Relaxing with my hubby, "Romance in Rio" or Chris Botti's "A Thousand Kisses Deep"; working is College Fight Songs, cooking is Big Band or fiddle and banjo, cooking for special occasions, Charlotte Church, doing dishes, hymns... to relax I like techno and when I'm playing board games with my son, we listen to Christian Contemporary. There's a music for every mood!

Favorite scents? Lilac, cinnamon, vanilla, Brut

Hair color? Eye color? Brown

Favorite sports to watch? Hockey, baseball, rodeo - or soccer and tennis if my sons are playing!

Scary movies or happy endings? Happy endings!

Movies that make you laugh or movies that make you think? BOTH

Who is your newest favorite singer? Michael Buble, esp. "Sway" and "Everything"

Do you have a special talent? I am amazingly good at diagnosing people's illnesses and ailments

Can I have a bite of your pumpkin bars? They sound yummy!

I'm so sorry to hear you have a son in heaven. That just makes me so sad.

Good answers! Thanks for participating! You make life extra fun! ♥ ∞

Now I feel like I know you better :>) I'm sorry about your son. I can't imagine a more terrible loss then that of a child.

Suzanne said...

Thanks for stopping by and letting me know about your gall bladder. The older I get, the more touchy it becomes! I wonder how long it will be before it needs to get yanked out. Loved reading your meme and realize that we have a several things in common. :)


Ruth Hull Chatlien said...

This was interesting. I too am sorry to hear about your son. Losses like that are so hard.

Connie said...

We have a lot in common :)
Peace & Love & Hugs!

OOooh I LOVE getting all the salacious details! Thanks Trace. PS: I too would like some pumpkin bar w/ cream cheese frosting. I think I will have to make something like that for the site - TODAY!

Merle said...

Dear Rosezilla ~~ Great answers to the meme. Well done. I am sorry also that you lost a son. That is hard.
Glad you enjoyed the jokes and yes I am enjoying my outdoor room.
Take great care, Love, Merle.

What a fun peak into the real you! I chuckled about the IMAX viewing of Madagascar ... something about "move it, move it, move it" in such a glorious venue brings a smile to my face.

Be blessed,
