first the rules (not that i will necessarily *follow* them!):
Step 1: respond and rework—answer the questions on your own blog, replace one question that you dislike with a question of your own invention, add one more question of your own.
(lauren sez: ok, fine, i can do that!)
Step 2: tag—eight other un-tagged people
(lauren sez: yeah...i'll probably cheat on this one!)
and now the tag questions:
What are you wearing now?
work clothes (jeans, tank top, cute hoodie)
What’s the last thing you read/are currently reading?
dictation: a quartet by cynthia ozick (for reading group) and art journaling by somerset studio; both are excellent in completely different ways
Do you nap a lot?
Who was the last person you hugged?
lovely husband jeff...who, in addition to his many other talents, is an EXCELLENT hugger!
What’s your current obsession/addiction?
well paper, obviously, and makin' stuff out of it...also i have eaten a pack of these every single day for about the last month...and at the moment, if NCIS is on, i am probably watching it...there are more, but i'll stop now...
What was the last thing you said aloud?
a very very naughty word indeed; directed at my currently slow as something-slower-than-molasses-in-the-arctic internet browser
What websites do you always visit when you go online?
hotmail, caardvarks, i can has cheezburger, i has a hotdog
What was the last thing you bought?
toilet bowl cleaner and drain-clearing stuff (just one of my many glamourous duties at work!)
What are you listening to right now?
i-pod on shuffle; current song: life of riley by the lightning seeds
If you could have any super power, what would it be?
I would love to be able to lose weight without exercising or counting calories. (lauren's note: i have stolen this answer, verbatim, from leslie; if there is a better super-power anywhere, i have not heard it!!!)
What is your favorite weather, and why?
warm, but not hot. breezy, but not windy. sunny, but with a few pretty clouds in the sky for decoration. if all of this were to align in the vicinity of a beach...so much the better...
What time do you usually get up?
7:40 am...whether i need to or not, at this point (sigh)
What is your most challenging goal right now?
i'd say "losing weight" if i was actually WORKING at that; for the moment is more like a *WISH*! (see the third question above this)
Say something to the person who tagged you:
hi leslie! hope the kitty is ok! any good word veri's lately??
If you could have a house – totally paid for, fully furnished – anywhere in the world, where would you want it to be?
a *free* house???!? DUDE!!! it can be any-frickin-where they want!
Favorite vacation spot?
i like to go somewhere different every time. ideally, i'd like to travel MUCH MORE than we do. i'm quite fond of beaches, generally, though...
Biggest decision every day is:
ugh. what to wear. yeah, i know, i wear jeans and a black top every day, but which jeans? and what top? and do they need to be ironed?? and is that a SPOT on my brand new cardigan??!
What is your favorite item of clothing?
do pajamas count??
What is your favorite outdoor activity?
we like to ride our bikes on the canal towpath near lambertville; in the nice weather i will walk 2-3 miles near our house instead of the treadmill at the gym; playing with the nieces is always fun; if it's a nice day & i'm outside, everything else is gravy!
Name one thing you just can’t resist no matter how bad it is for you:
ice cream. or chocolate. sweets, generally, i suppose.
Favorite pair of shoes you keep going back to over and over, even though your closet is overflowing with a zillion others:
my closet isn't actually overflowing with a zillion pairs of shoes, actually; i have 3 or 4 pairs of reeboks, though, and they are the most common thing to find on my feet
Name one thing you cannot live without:
♥lovely husband jeff♥
What time is bed time?
ideally i try to lie down around 10pm; i need to read for an hour or so before i fall asleep
My added question:
which picture of daniel craig is currently your favorite?
finally, the tagging:
rather than picking eight individuals, i'm going to do categories. therefore, i hereby tag everyone reading this who is:
1. wearing orange (yes, underwear counts!)
2. playing hooky today (well sheesh...you've got time then, right?!)
3. over six foot tall (so AMY is safe, then!)
4. currently eating a chocolate biscuit (b/c i am JEALOUS!)
5. belgian (either by birth, inclination, or geography)
6. in the mood to be tagged (hey--dig in!)
7. smoking a cigarette right now (see--those things have ALLLLLLL kinds of negative side effects!!!)
8. employed as a spy or clandestine operative of any kind (in which case, you probably *shouldn't* link back, lest it blow your cover!)
right. i think my work here is done.
happy wednesday, darlings!!!
