28 Things, More or Less

I got a little OCD with witchypoo about the fact there is no #2 on this list. I figure if I'm going to be all over-invested in its ordinal consistency, the least I can do is play along.

1. Any nicknames? Not really. I do go by my middle name instead of my first.

3. Favorite drink? Wine, and I'm not too picky about it.

4. Any tattoos? Yep, my astrological symbol on my belly. I went on a road trip with two of my friends in college, and we all got tattoos in Pittsburgh.

5 Body piercing? Just my ears.

6. How much do you love your job? I love working on a cause I believe in, and that makes me happy everyday. On a day to day basis, I love my job completely about 99% of the time. The other 1% of the time I'm crying quietly to myself with my office door closed.

7. Favorite vacation spot? I couldn't pick one spot. I love to travel.

8. Ever been to Africa? No. I hope to have the chance to go and visit my uncle, who is in the foreign service, if he gets reassigned to an African country.

9. Ever eaten cookies for dinner? Yes. Sometimes I don't even bake them first.

10. Ever been on TV? Once, answering phones for the local public television pledge drive.

11. Ever steal any traffic signs? No. But I did used to collect those little bumps that divide the lanes on the road. I had small white and yellow ones, white and orange reflective ones, and one of those giant yellow ones that mark a left turn lane. I always coveted the blue reflective ones that mark fire hydrants, but I wasn't irresponsible enough to steal one, and I never found one that had come loose on its own.

12. Ever been in a car accident? One time, but it wasn't my fault.

13. Drive a 2-door or 4-door vehicle? 4-door with a hatch back.

14. Favorite pie? If I had to pick just one, I'd say cherry, but my love for pies is broad and deep.

15. Favorite Number? 7 or 17. My birth month is July, and I was born in 1977. The address of the first home we've ever owned begins and ends with seven. The last two jobs I've had hired me on the 17th of the month. Those numbers just keep popping up.

16. Favorite movie? Heathers

17. Favorite holiday? Thanksgiving

18. Favorite dessert? I can't narrow it down. My sweet tooth is mighty.

19. Favorite food? Sushi, and most things that come out of the ocean. Honorable mentions go to Tex-Mex and really garlicky Italian food.

20. Favorite day of the week? Saturday. It's the only day I can manage sleeping in and staying up late without having to worry about work.

21. Favorite brand of body wash? Evidently bath products are a popular gift for females, so I have received several metric butt loads of body wash over the years. When one bottle of body wash runs out, I just reach in the cabinet and choose another one at random.

22. Favorite toothpaste? Tom's of Maine, wintermint flavor.

23. Favorite smell? That's a hard question. I love the smell of onions frying, but I wouldn't want my shampoo to smell that way.

24. What do you do to relax? Read blogs and drink wine. Plant things. Take a hot shower. Knit. I really have the whole relaxing thing down.

25. Do you have a message to your friends reading this? The crow flies at midnight.

26. How do you see yourself in 10 years? Kind of the way I am now, only more so.

27. Furthest place you will send this message? Not too far, I'm pretty sure.

28. Who will respond the fastest? I'll be surprised if anyone does, to tell you the truth.

You know, ever since you brought it up to me, looking at the missing number 2 is kind of bothering me, too.
Who knew?
