Ten Tiny Things

So I was tagged by Synrgy to do this meme thang...


  1. When you were born, how much did you weigh?

6 pounds, 10 ounces of squalling baby girl. My identical twin was 7 pounds on the dot and preceded me by 4 minutes. She squalled too. Sounded like a chicken house per our mother.

  1. What's you're sugar poison?

Belgian chocolate. I cannot resist the divine smoothness and richness of Belgian chocolate. I am so spoiled. But, of course now I cannot indulge this vice anymore due to my migraine diet that forbids caffeine. It is that most difficult food to do without.

  1. If you had to choose between meat and cheese for the rest of your life,
    which would you choose? Then be specific.

Meat. Probably chicken, because you can spice it to taste like just about anything you want.

  1. What, is your opinion, is the worst song ever?

Blue Velvet as sung by Bobby Vinton. Hearing it makes me want to throw up. It is my music to throw up to.

  1. Who was your favorite teacher growing up and why?

My high school art teacher. I don’t remember his name, but he really helped to foster my talent and introduced me to many different media. We worked with clay, plaster, crea-stone, soapstone, watercolors, oils, chalk, pencil, ink, lino cuts and prints, and much more. He had a beard and was gay. But that sort of thing wasn’t spoken about in 1973.

  1. What personal activity, when performed in public, bothers you the most?

Farting. Ugh. The smell, when I realize what it is, that is just so disgusting.

  1. Ok, there's a $50 bill lying on the ground. You pick it up. Dumbfounded by your incredible luck, what do you selfishly purchase?

Nothing. I want for nothing.

  1. Do you have a recurring nightmare? If so, explain.

Yes I do. I have had this terrifying nightmare since childhood that there is this white and perfect piece of paper or surface, that suddenly gets blemished or crinkled, then just goes all to hell and wrinkles up into a wadded up ball of trash as if it was in a wreck. So, it could be say the perfect surface of a shiny new car door, that suddenly is ruined or just a pillow case that gets dirty and blotchy. But, while it may not be scary to you, I used wake up in terror from it. Therapists and I have concluded that it is my fear of death and or loss of innocence or aging. I don’t have those dreams much anymore. Guess I’m not so innocent now.

  1. Name one place on Earth you've never been, but vow to visit at least once.

There are so many places, here is a list: Thailand, Egypt, Japan, Myanmar, China, India, Greece, Australia, New Zealand, Ecuador, Brazil, Spain, Morocco, Lebanon, Tibet, and many more.

  1. You notice that question #9 wasn't really a question. You feel smart for catching such a small detail. What else can you do really well that reminds you how smart you are?

Well, I can play a mean game of solitaire.


I tag Peter, Toni, Graham, Angelo, and Chris.


The meme questions are in the comments for your ease of use. (You can thank me later.)
