Uninspired randomness

Have you ever licked the back of a CD to try to get it to work?-- Does that work?

What's the largest age difference between yourself and someone you’ve dated?-- Paul and I are 10 years apart and we've made it 14 years now, so it can't be a bad thing.

Ever been in a car wreck?-- Yep. A guy t-boned Mom's station wagon when I was 4 and Tater was 2 months old. We were a mile from home. I was also in the backseat of DeLisa's parents' station wagon when we slid on the ice into the ditch just up the road from Papa's house, just a little over a mile from home. Lessons learned? I stayed away from station wagons on my road - it was too dangerous!

Were you popular in high school?-- Yeah. Fat lot of good it did me, too. It wasn't worth hurting the people I hurt to get there.

Have you ever been on a blind date?--Yep.

Are looks important in a relationship?-- Yeah, they really are.

Do you have any friends that you've known for 10 years or more?-- Oh gosh yes! DeLisa and I have been friends for nearly 30 years!

Have you ever made a mistake?-- No, I'm perfect. Geesh, what kind of questions is that? Who would actually say they hadn't made a mistake?

Are you a good tipper?-- If I get good service, I tip good. I've been a cocktail waitress, I know what it's like to work for tips, but I also know that it's pretty easy to be nice and earn those tips.

What's the most you have spent for a haircut?-- $22

Have you ever peed in public?-- Nope. I don't even pee in front of my husband. Things lock up and quit working. Performance anxiety? :-)

What song do you want played at your funeral?-- When I Get Where I'm Going by Brad Paisley. Since we've lost Papa that song has taken on a whole new meaning for me.

Beatles or Stones?.-- Beatles

If you had to pick one person on earth to die, who?-- Bin Laden

Beer, wine or hard liquor?-- Beer. It's cheaper.

Do you walk around the house naked?-- No. Even when I had a good body I didn't. Just not my thing. I prefer clothing, thank you very much.

If you were an animal what would you be?--A cat. I like to be left alone unless I want you to mess with me.

Hair color you like on someone when you're dating?-- Dark

Would you rather be blind or deaf?-- Deaf. I'm legally blind without my glasses and it scares me to think about being completely blind.

Do you have any special talents? -- I can clog dance.

What do you do as soon as you walk in the house?-- Put my purse down and check the answering machine.

Do you like horror or comedy?-- Both. I'm not as big of a horror movie fan as I used to be. Old age has made me into kind of a weenie.

Are you missing anyone?-- Papa and Cousin Stacey

If you weren't straight, what person of the same sex would you do?-- I have a huge crush on Kelly Preston.

Where do you want to live when you are old?-- Right here.

Who is the person you can count on the most?--Mom.

If you could date any celebrity past or present, who would it be?-- Tom Hanks.

What did you dream about last night?-- I remembered it this morning, but I've forgotten now.

What is your favorite sport to watch?-- I don't like sports, but watching Sam play basketball now makes me smile.

Are you named after anyone?-- Nope.

What is your favorite alcoholic drink?-- Bud Light, but if someone else is buying apple martinis are nice.

Non alcoholic drink?-- Sweet tea

Have you ever been in love?--Who hasn't?

Do you sing in the shower?-- No. I'm always trying to keep the kids asleep as long as possible while I get ready in the morning.

Have you ever been arrested?--Nope. I've never even gotten a speeding ticket.

What is your favorite Holiday? Christmas

Would you ever get plastic surgery?-- You betcha. It's only a matter of time.

Have you ever caught a fish?-- Blech, no. I see absolutely no point whatsoever in fishing.
