3) What would people find most surprising about you?
i'm not very original. totally derivative, in any activity

(insert colour here) lightning

Snakes... on a plane!!

14) Carol King or James Taylor?
Carol King, obviously

15) Do you look at your mouth when you are brushing your teeth or just look around the room?
usually i'm making creepy faces, so i guess i'm looking at my mouth...

I'll answer the easy ones first and come back later for the harder ones, cuz I know you *really* can't wait for some of *my* answers.

:)

1. No

4. No (Although some people would disagree and would imagine that I also have two horns)

7. Hot, hot, hot, baby. Oh wait. You meant water? Um, hot. Oh wait. You meant weather? Neither. San Francisco. 72 and sunny all year round is my ideal.

10. I don't have the courage to admit it on Teh Internets.

14. Aren't they really the same person? I could never choose one over the other. Although I really like JT's nickname, "Sweet Baby James." Love Carol King's hair. Love her voice. Even her talking voice. Love that JT and Carly were married, though. Such a cute couple till the heroin got in the way. Love Carly's hair too. I love everthing about Carly Simon. I think I choose Carly Simon. Oh wait. I'm breaking the rules.

15. Both. I'm a multitasker. But, I'm not a messy brusher. Very neat brusher. I have a friend who's a totally messy brusher. Toothpaste flies everywhere! Looks like she has rabies.

I'll be back!

aif- did you wear a dashiki with your magician's outfit?
Glad to hear about the tail. Did your magician's tux have a tail?

BG- you must have answered my first #14, because the choice was Carol King or Carly Simon, but then I realized if I was playing on the You Got A Friend theme, I'd have to put Sweet Baby James in there instead. Kudos for answering the question I was thinking, but didn't type... and yes, you'd better be back.

1. Dashiki. I've never worn one. But the first year my husband and I were married, he had bought one at AM-Vets and wore it around like a house robe.
2.Never satisfied with any of my clothes, not within memory.
3.People seem to find me either outlandish or else trying way too hard to be nice. They might be surprised to learn both are true, just not at once.
4.Not now. But until I was fifteen I would have sworn I did have a little stub of a tail.
5.?
6.These days? Oh, more pile driving. They start at 6 am, and slam the poles into the ground at varying intervals until 5pm. (Must have fallen behind schedule; bonus money if they meet the deadline--which will be...who knows?)
7.hot
8.lateral
9.shine
10.my children
11. ?
12. everything

Hi grasshopper!

Waking to pile drivers! Oh GOD! I know that one. The entire place usually shakes and you feel it to your core. I hope they finish soon.

I'm with you on lateral.

Thanks for answering.

the Ice cold answer is of course in response to my current situation where i am being baked(and not in a good way) every day by the relentless tormentor that is El Sol.

aif- that's what I figured. Of course your heart is warm and no doubt your love life is hot. :)

Yeah, sure aif.

13)Spring and Fall...perfect mushroom growing weather.
14)Neither...I'd rather pierce my retina with a hot needle than be faced with that horrible choice.
15)I stare about, still grappling with my impending death.

1) Have you ever owned or worn a dashiki?
No. I wasn't positive what it was... which makes me very uncultured and possibly shows my age.

2) What was your favorite outfit and why?
It all depends on weather and need. I mean, I have a current favorite pair of sweatpants, but those don't leave the house. I like my very work-appropriate outfit today (gray skirt, black tights and mary janes, black sleeveless shell and light blue cardigan).

3) What would people find most surprising about you?
Apparently that I'm a twin.

No, don't be silly.

6) What's the first thing you think about upon waking in the morning?
Ugghh...

Failure.

13) Winter, spring, summer or fall?

15) Do you look at your mouth when you are brushing your teeth or just look around the room?
I'm using looking at my feet, yelling at Frank to stop attacking them.

Glen- well I'm glad that colonoscopy worked for you. And I'm sure Grizzled is touched that you'd name your horse Grizzled.

Maybe you should name your horse, "Remaindered"!

Claire- No tail!?! Bummer. :)

1) Not in about 10 years. Thanks for the reminder... :)
2) Rose plaid jeans & jacket combo cuz it was my first suit evah.
3) You don't really wanna know. (Honest)
4) I've had many but am currently sans any.
5) If cowboy - Duster. If cowgirl - Buster. (Or vice-a-versa)
6) Either whatever I was just dreaming or simply what time is it? (I don't use an alarm clock.)
7) Hot
8) Lateral
9) Shine
10) The Status Quo
11) I've got plenty of the other way arounds... Hmmm... Getting fired from my last factory gig. 'Twas the last bit o' motivation needed to enroll in college.
12) I share too much already... :-|-;
13) Summer (w/ Fall a close 2nd)
14) Carly Simon
15) LOL! The latter is impossible!

I read.

Nice quiz, Jennifer, and a typical collection of funny answers. I went the AG route and answered over at my place.

"Are we robbing a bank? Cuz then I pick James Taylor."

LOL to that.

But! I have a feeling Carol King would be way feistier than JT. Plus, you'd get to be the cool bank robbing couple.

Bonnie & Clyde. Carol and Chuckles.

Same dif.

Chuckles- did getting shot at in the Congo (it hurts to get shot in the Congo, much more so than the arm or leg)happen while you were trying to water ski??

Chuckles- Grizzled said you have a tail, it's just yours is on the front and you call it, "Wang".

I went like Brando, who evidently has passed the buck, too, and answered on my blog.

Fun quiz!

More, please.

1) Have you ever owned or worn a dashiki?

No, but I'm still wearing some Tzatziki from the gyro i had for lunch.

2) What was your favorite outfit and why?

a particular black t-shirt, a particular blazing orange corduroy shirt, pants, and maine in october. Because nothing is better than getting a little drunk in front of a roaring fire and eating well.

3) What would people find most surprising about you?

I was very overweight as a child.

4) Do you have a tail?

No. They took that off with the flippers and excess fat.

5) If you were a cowboy/cowgirl, what would you name your horse?

I'd ask the horse

6) What's the first thing you think about upon waking in the morning?

How many times have I already hit snooze?? Oh shit!!

Hot and dry or cold and dry,

8) Literal or lateral?

Liberal

9) Rain or shine?

Yin or Yang?

My freakish ability to see 5 moves ahead.

Getting fired from my last job, then meeting a guy who got fired by the same people 10 years ago and had since started his own company. Getting laid off from the job before that, on the first day of Summer.

12) What you're still grappling with?

Women, and the finding of a good one.

Fall, in Maine, witah a good buzz on. See #2 above.

Neil Young

15) Do you look at your mouth when you are brushing your teeth or just look around the room?

I look across the room at the mirror, as the presence of my nose makes it rather difficult to see my mouth directly.

Brendan- thanks for the answers. I went over and checked them out. They were wonderful. Thanks also for the gentle reminder about how Carole spells her name. I forget how to spell mine on any given day. :)

mdhatter- and let me add... you looked FAB-ulous in that Tzatziki!

Maine in October sounds wonderful.

Also, kudos for asking the horse.

Bossy doesn't have a tail, but has a tale or two.

Morality may consist solely in the courage of making a choice. (Leon Nlum, French statesman)
