One of the Longest Memes...

that I have ever seen. But, hey, I have no life, so here it is. Anvilcloud sent this over to me in email form, since he had decided not to post it. But I have no secrets from you, my friends, and I am happy to fill in the blanks.

1. What is your full name?
Gina, middle name starts with an M and last name starts with a P. Ok, so maybe one secret. I have to say that I dislike my married name, I much preferred my maiden one.

2. What colour pants are you wearing?
Gray pajama pants, bought on sale from Target for six bucks! Score! (I also notice that color was spelled the Canadian way)

3. What are you listening to right now?
A kick-butt song called "Leah" by a one-hit-wonder named Donnie Iris.

4. What was the last thing you ate?
I shared a gourmet dinner with Mr. Personality that consisted of baked Trader Joes' chicken nuggets, corn, and apple slices with caramel.

5. Do you wish on stars?
When I am with Mr. Personality or Hubba-hubba I do. It's more fun that way.

6. If you were a crayon, what color would you be?
I think I would be purple blue as opposed to the blue purple.

7. How is the weather right now?
Hot and uncharacteristically muggy. We may get some thunderstorms/lightning storms.

8. Last person you spoke to on the phone?
My BIL, as I was curious to see who my sister got to go with her to a Pat Benetar concert at the very last moment. My dad was supposed to go, but he hurt his neck and can't drive, or enjoy himself at a concert. So three hours before start time she was frantically calling people to see if they were available.

9. Do you like the person who sent this to you?
I very much like AC, and I actually sometimes have a hard time separating him in my mind from Cuppa, even though of course I know they are two different people.

10. How old are you today?
34. I was 34 yesterday and I will be 34 tomorrow.

11. Favourite drinks?
Iced tea (almost any kind) and Diet Coke.

12. Favorite sport?
Mmmmm, toss up between baseball and volleyball. I enjoy playing volleyball and watching it. I enjoy watching baseball, but I'm not as good at it.

13. Hair color?
My real hair color is a dirty blonde, I get it weaved with gold highlights. Right now I have not been to the salon since March, so a bit of a zebra stripe is showing.

14. Do you wear contacts?
I am insanely near-sighted, like 400/450 with astigmatism in the left to boot. Since having Mr. Personality, I wear the leave-in for a week kind.

15. Siblings?
One sister who is older than me by five years.

16. Favourite month?
Definitely October. I love the start of the fall, and Halloween is my favorite holiday. When I think of October I think of getting to wear jeans and sweaters again, as well as crisp, cooler days. Actually, that weather doesn't really arrive here in SoCal until November, but I've never been one to let the facts get in my way.

17. Favourite food?
Technically it is Fettucine Alfredo, but I haven't had it in years since it is just so bad for me. A good steak is always welcome.

18. What was the last movie you saw?
We just saw Batman Begins on Monday. Christian Bale, where have you been all my life? What a hottie!

19. Favourite day of the year?
I'm gonna have to split it between our wedding anniversary and Mr. Personality's birthday. Both days granted me a lifetime with two wonderful men.

20. What do you do to vent anger?
I get "The Look" and everyone cowers. My voice will go up a few octaves and decibels for sure. I can be very sarcastic and quite mean when I am mad.

21. What was your favourite toy as a child?
Barbie and we also had a Barbie sailboat.

22. Hugs or kisses?
I do both.

23. Do you want your friends to e-mail you back?
My self-worth is based solely on how many emails I recieve per day.

24. Who is most likely to respond?
I am not sure, this is pretty long.

25. Who is least likely to respond?
Cuppa, because she has her hands full with moving!

26. When was the last time you cried?
I got a little misty when Bruce Wayne's parents were killed in the movie. But I was nothing compared to Hubba-hubba. I was getting ready to break out the hankie.

27. What is under your bed?
The deconstructed pieces of Mr. Personality's crib and the leaf for our table. We have a very large bed.

28. Who is the friend you have had the longest?
It would have to be my high school best friend, M.

29. What did you do last night?
Made dinner for Mr. Personality and myself, gave him a bath and then waited an hour for him to fall asleep. Crabbily got on the net and checked blogs, read the paper.

30. What are you afraid of?
That no one will comment on my blog and it will finally hit home how uninteresting a writer I am.

31. Plain, buttered or salted popcorn?
If I have it, it's gotta have it all.

32. Favourite car?
The old Jags. Not the Ford ones.

33. Favourite flower?
Iris. Hubba-hubba and I once got into an argument about this. His favorite flower is a yellow rose, and he would always give me yellow roses. But never irises. One day I pointed out to him that I liked irises, and wasn't really that fond of yellow roses(see #20). He got very angry, told me I was very ungrateful, and I didn't get flowers for a long time. But when I did, they were irises.

34. Number of keys on your key ring?
Eight.

35. How many years at your current job?
Coming up on three years as a SAHM. Has it really been that long since I left the world of the gainfully employed?

36. Favourite day of the week?
Sunday, that is usually when we do family stuff and also the start of Hubba-hubba's weekend.

37. What did you do on your last birthday?
I was taken out to dinner and a concert by some friends, and my family had a party for me, as we have a party for each of our birthdays. Hubba-hubba and I went to Disneyland sans Mr. Personality. My birthday celebration was strung out over the course of a week. I like it like that.

38. How many cities have you lived in?
Three, all in SoCal. Two in LA county, and this one in OC.

39. What popular expression best fits your personality?
Why, Beeeyotch, of course.

I don't think anyone has the time to do this meme, but if you feel like it, go ahead. Or even just take some of the questions you are most interested in answering.

Thanks for thinking of me, AC!

Leaving a comment so that you can eliminate one of your fears for the day. And to say that you are a very interesting writer!

Anvilcloud said...

Hmmm, I have a light Fettucine Alfredo recipe if you're interested. It's actually a pretty decent alternative.

Gina said...

Thank you Suzanne, for supporting my pathological insecurity! :)

Funny, I got this same "meme" over email today. And I concur with Suzanne, you are a very interesting writer!

Dee said...

I am going to post this on an board I post on. It is great. I have to say that I hate my maiden name. I was glad when I married so I could change it.

What other actors are on your "hottie list'?

WordsRock said...

Is there enough room for the opinions of two Suzannes on this blog? :)
