Question Meme

Well, everyone and their mother has done this one, so I may as well jump on the wagon...

1. What is your first name? Take a wild guess.

2. Were you named after anyone? Nope. (Though the story goes that before I actually came home I was fondly referred to as "Egbert".)

3. Do you wish on stars? Not so much anymore, though I still enjoy looking at them.

4. When did you last cry? Last week, maybe? Two weeks ago? I allow myself at least one good cry a month.

5. Do you like your handwriting? Not particularly, though as long as it's readable I'm happy.

6. What is your favorite lunch meat? Fresh from the deli pastrami.

7. What is your most embarrassing CD? Embarrassing? Umm, the concerts I've participated in?

8. If you were another person, would you be friends with you? Well, being me, I'd probably be too shy to talk to myself- I'm generally approached by others.

9. Do you have a journal? I'm known to keep blank books about for random writing, but nothing so formal as a journal.

10. Do you use sarcasm a lot? Sarcasm? Moi????

11. What are your nicknames? Red, Weggity

12. Would you bungee jump? Can I hang glide instead? Not a big fan of the stretchy cord thing.

13. Do you untie your shoes when you take them off? Nope.

14. Do you think that you are strong? Hmm... I can lift furniture and heavy boxes by myself, but I generally ask for help.

15. What is your favorite ice cream flavor? Currently mint chocolate chip, but my loyalties have been known to waver.

16. Shoe Size? 10! I have feet like small boats!

17. Red or pink? Red.

18. What is your least favorite thing about yourself? I take criticism far too personally.

19. Who do you miss most? I miss a lot of people.

27. The first thing you notice about the opposite sex? Okay, why is this question always about the OPPOSITE sex? I happen to be a people watcher, and frankly, I'm just drawn to the people who stick out the most. Especially if they've got nifty t-shirts on.

28. Where did you find this meme? Couldn't tell you which blog. So many people have done it, it would be silly to try and pick one.
