Because You Obviously Don't Know Enough About Me

Fifty Questions (and answers):
I got this from Susan M and I decided to play along. Probably because I'm back to being all me, me, me since I did my updates on the family. Or because I'm bored. Or putting off things I really should be doing.

1. Do you like blue cheese? No
2. Have you ever smoked a cigarette? Just fake candy ones in the 5th grade play.
3. Do you own a gun? No, and I hope I never have to.
4. What flavor do you add to your drink at Sonic? I've only been to Sonic 4 times? So I have no idea.
5. Do you get nervous before doctor appointment? Sometimes. Only if I have a legitimate reason to be.
6. What do you think of hot dogs? I have to copy Susan's answer, because I feel the same way: I think they’re gross and super yummy at the same time.
7. Favorite Christmas Song? I can't pick just one. Top Three: Oh, Holy Night; What Child is This?; It Came Upon a Midnight Clear
8. What do you prefer to drink in the morning? Water
9. Can you do push-ups? Ummm...I used to be able to do 10.
10. What is your favorite movie? I can't pick just one. It's like picking my favorite book. Can't do it.
11. What’s your favorite piece of jewelry? My wedding ring.
12. Favorite hobby? Blogging and piano playing.
13. Do you work with people who idolize you? My girls aren't as impressed anymore, but my boys seem to still adore me!
14. Do you have ADD? No.
15. What’s one trait that you hate about yourself? Feeling pressure to identify things I hate about myself.
16. What’s your middle name? I don't have one. My maiden name is now my middle name.
17. Name three thoughts at this moment: I wish the kids would stop fighting and just eat their lunch; I hate Aunt Flo; my foot is asleep.
18. Name 3 things you bought yesterday: Duct tape, bleach, and toothpaste
19. Current worry right now? Will I have enough energy to get the laundry started today?

22. Favorite place to be? With good friends/family.
23. How did you bring in the New Year? I can't remember!
24. Where would you like to go? Everywhere. Literally, the whole world. But first on my list? England.
25. Name three people who will complete this? No idea. Three people with time on their hands? Or three people with NO time on their hands? Like me?
26. Whose answer do you want to read the most? I have to agree with Susan M on this one, too: Bythelbs!
27. What color shirt are you wearing? Purple.
28. Do you like sleeping on satin sheets? I prefer flannel.

31. Would you be a pirate? Only if Johnny Depp was my captain. Ho, ho!
32. What songs do you sing in the shower? Usually I don't so I don't wake up the kids. But when I do? It's Opera. Very bad opera, I might add...

35. What’s in your pocket right now? My hand checking if there's anything in my pockets.
36. Last thing (Person) that made you laugh? #3 when he said "This spoon is kind of sharpish!"
37. Best bed sheets as a child? Can't remember having a theme. Did I?

I have a friend and her kid's names are Jane and Wade...no kidding.

I totally agree on 10 and 45. That's pretty much what I put and I swear I didn't read yours before I posted mine. :)

I've already posted today, so I was going to save this for tomorrow, but I'm afraid it might be all "so yesterday" by then.

Why would you ever HAVE to own a gun?

Julie said...

#14 sounds like you're planning some sort of crime.

I love "If You Could Hie to Kolob." If only because it has the word "Kolob" in it. But it is a pretty awesome song, nonetheless.

TaLaisa said...

I love these kinds of things. I'm totally curious about the bar, how?

And sorry, I do not like the name Wade. Bad college boy experience to blame. I would otherwise love it.

Cheryl said...

Oh, sure. That's just what you WANT me to believe.


Having ADD?

Every time I think of it, I now think of Kobol and BSG. Yes. Yes, I do.

Cheryl said...

Sorry, we commented at the same time!

Wade is my father's name. :)

The bar and broken nose? Oh, don't you worry. That will be blogged about this coming November!

TaLaisa said...

Okay. I won't hold my breath. But I will be watching. I just posted my answers over on My blog.

Janette Rallison said...

Only one cat? I can fix that, I've got a few to spare.

Cheryl said...

Sorry! One cat is enough for us. I'm allergic and Brandon is lucky that I let us have the one! Yep--he's the cat lover in the family.

Susan M said...

I literally ran into a bar.


Cheryl said...

Well, it wasn't funny when it happened, you know. But it sure is funny now!

Cardalls said...

i'm with you on picking my favorite movie or book...in fact it's like picking your favorite child, you like so many different things about each one you can't possibly choose!

Leslie said...

OK...I have new respect...If You Could Hie to Kolob at your funeral? Woah! I think at that point...you will have Hied to Kolob for yourself!

FluffyChicky said...

Mmmm, I'd let Johnny Depp captain my ship any day! Arrg! :)

FluffyChicky said...

More presents for you at my blog. :)

Yes, I am totally trying to win points here. Is it working?

Julie said...

Oops! #18. I think I have ADD of the typing fingers.

"Having ADD?" I'm laughing out loud right now. And Brig is mimicking me.

Cheryl said...

HA! Okay, yes, that does make me look like I'm planning a crime, but I promise you I wasn't...or was I? (insert evil cackling here)

Aww, you're too nice! And yes, it's totally working. :)

Exactly! Exactly.

Yes! Exactly for you, too. Exactly!

Amber said...

Kolob is fun. It is much better than what Jamie professes he'll play at my funeral: "Ding, dong the witch is dead."


Cheryl said...

But this is what we've come to expect from Jamie, right? Right. :)
