Here we go . . .
what are your most common nicknames?
I don't really have a nickname, unless you consider that my favorite uncle has always called me by my middle name and that Thom calls me Zip.
what is today's weather?
Currently, at 4:14 AM in my part of Orange County, California, it is 75 degrees F with an expected daytime high temperature of 90 as the day progresses.
where did go on vacation this year?
I didn't take a vacation this year; I retired instead.
what did you do there?
I played Farm Town on Facebook a lot and had surgery.
where did you stay?
Either at home or in the office at our business. The accommodations at home are more comfortable when the weather is hot, so I've stayed in the luxury of central air for a few weeks.
what job do you do?
It would be easier to tell you what job I don't do. I don't do windows.
describe where you live.
I live in a city that is swallowed up by two others that are much more famous: Anaheim (home of Disneyland) and Santa Ana (once voted the "Great American City"). Garden Grove is best known for its annual Strawberry Festival and for being conveniently located near everything else that is important.
what do you usually do on weekends?
The same things I do on week days -- work.
what food hits your 'bliss spot'?
Spinach cooked just about any way you can imagine.
what drink really does it for you?
Coffee with hazelnut cream
describe the first friend that comes to your head.
The Amazing Egyptian Dude (aka my husband)
what was the last restaurant you went to?
I think it was Red Robin, but I don't remember for sure.
where would you like to live if you had unlimited moneys and nothing stopping your dreams?
Somewhere in the mountains between Pagosa Springs and Silverton, Colorado.
what is the likeliness of you achieving this dream home?
Not likely at all -- the Amazing Egyptian Dude balks at the idea of touching snow let alone living in a place where it is a daily part of life for several months of the year.
what do you like to do in your spare time?
Read, crochet, play with the cats, crossword puzzles, and watch documentaries
what's your favorite genre for TV programs?
My favorite TV programming is on PBS because it's mostly documentaries; on network television, though, it would have to be the talent competitions like American Idol and Dancing with the Stars.
what's your favorite genre for music?
what's your favorite song that's sad?
I've got a whole list of them here: Songs to Cry By.
what's your favorite soppy film?
A Walk to Remember
how about your favorite chick flick?
Right now it's Music and Lyrics; however, it changes every few days.
what are you looking forward to at the moment?
A reduction in the swelling at the incision site of the surgery I had on Friday morning.
what are you dreading at the moment?
The swelling not going down and having to make a trip to Urgent Care to get it checked.
how would you describe your personality?
Sheesh, these questions are quite random, aren't they?! Anyway, I'd describe my personality as friendly and easy to get along with.
if you had a personality eraser, what part of yours might you erase?
The stubborn parts.
you are given $5000 to spend in 1 day, what do you do with it? remember, no limitations!
Providing, of course, that it has been invented, I'd buy a robot that does the laundry. If one isn't available, then I'd use the money to buy some gold as an investment.
what is your biggest fear?
That my husband will die before I do.
