Meme'd again!

Do you snore? My mom told me once that I snore when I'm sick. Otherwise, I don't believe so.

Are you a lover or a fighter? Good balance. I love the people that I like to bits, I respect everyone's right to exist and consider, etc, but when it comes to nonsense and rudeness, I have a hard time keeping my trap shut. But then, my temper is a decent one-- once I feel I have explained my stance on something bothering me, I'm over it. That's helpful.

What's your worst fear? Burning to death, brain tumors, getting murdered, getting my throat slit (recurring nightmare my entire life), drowning.. you know, tame stuff.

As a kid, were you a Lego Maniac? Nah. I had blocks and such, but I was more into making my backyard an exotic adventure and collages and writing little stories and chopping Barbie's hair and coloring it was markers to be "punk rock"...

What do you think of reality tv? Terrible crap I enjoy completely. Joey Greco is such a douhebag that I can't stop watching his fake concern. I bet he gets a lot of spite-sex, hosting that show.

Do you chew on your straws? Not really. I bend them into little squares, though. I used to bite them when I first quit smoking.

Were you a cute baby? Not at all! I looked like an angry old man until I was toddler age. Then, I was cute as a toddler. Not sure if I'm more in the cute or angry old man category now. Maybe a little of both.

What color is your keyboard? White. Oh great, I'm going to get more hate-mail for that one. Blah, blah, there I go again, making it a race thing. Pssh.

Do you sing in the shower? Totally. Old Big Band, standard and jazz tunes. Just this morning, I butchered the overture from Tosca.

Have you ever bungee jumped? Negative. I wanted to at one point, but probably wouldn't do it now.

Any secret talents? Then they'd cease to be a secret, wouldn't they?

What's your ideal vacation spot? Anguilla in the British West Indies was prety great. I'd do that again. I sure want to go walk around Prague, though.

Can you swim? Like a fish.

Have you seen the movie Donnie Darko? Yes.

Do you give a damn about the ozone? Yes, a very big damn.

How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop? Bleh.

Can you sing the alphabet backwards? Well, having never been given a field sobriety test, I have no idea.

Do you prefer electric or manual pencil sharpener? I'm all ink. Even for crosswords.

What's your stand on hunting? Unless you need to kill it to survive, I don't believe in it at all.

Do you like your handwriting? Sure. I wish I wrote more like my Dad, though. Fonts only wish they looked like my Dad's writing.

What are you allergic to?Heavy pain relievers. Sedatives. Tide detergent. Prickly Pear fruit. Oppression.

When was the last time you said, I love you? Every half hour. A hooker's got to keep the illusion alive, okay?

Do you cry at weddings? Not usually, but I have before.

How do you like your eggs? Poached with a little salt and chopped parsley.

Are blondes dumb? No. Everyone is dumb.

Where does the other sock end up? I have a system. My socks don't vanish.

Do you have a nickname? Some people call me Ames. Amehleh is another popular favorite, as is Amelia.

Is McDonalds disgusting? Without a doubt. Nutritionally. Environmentally. Politically. Emotionally. Professionally. Racially. Financially.

When was the last time you were in a car? Yesterday. That's the last time I steal a Porsche. Cops have no sense of humor! Sheesh!

Do you prefer baths or showers? Either is fine, though I tend to prefer to efficiency of the shower. Oh, and the bottom of my tub is poorly insulated, so I freeze my butt cheeks after a few minutes in the tub in this apartment. Did I mention it was 14 degrees today?

Is Santa Claus real? Who wrote this meme? You're asking a Jewish adult if Santa is real? Sure, Virginia, whatever you need to think.

Do you like to have your neck kissed? Not really. I get squirmy. Forehead is another story. (wink)

Are you afraid of the dark? Truth be told. I totally am! I am such a heavy sleeper that I'll wake up totally disoriented and need a few minutes to get my bearings sometimes. Light helps.

What are you addicted to?Caffeine. Email. Broccoli. Ketchup. Girly-ass scented candles.

Crunchy or creamy peanut butter? Crunchy. There, I said it. Crun! Chy!

Can you crack your neck? I can and do often.

Have you ever ridden in an ambulance? Yeah. About two years ago. I don't remember a helluva lot about it, though, except that the EMT lady was nice, I had blood on my hand and wasn't sure why, I couldn't move from the waist down and I was jonesing for another hit off the up-the-nose oxygen tube for weeks afterwards.

Is drug free the way to be? It is for me. Except when I sprinkle crackrocks on my cereal, but that's just for decoration.

Are you a heavy sleeper? I sleep like the dead.

What color are your eyes? Hazel, but they turn green if I cry. Which I never do, so there. Shut up.

Do you like your life? You bet your ass. I love it.

Are you psychic? I refuse to answer, as I have already seen your skeptical reactions.

Have you read Catcher in the Rye? Yes. Weird, this book has come up three or four times in the last week. Weird.

Do you play any instruments? In my lifetime, I have played the cello, the violin, the guitar and the bass but I don't currently own any instruments so I can't really call myself proficient on any of them these days.

Have you ever stolen money? Millions.

Can you snowboard? I don't think I'm very good at it, but I have a nice time trying.

Do you like camping? I used to love it but the older I get, the less I enjoy rocks in my back at night.

Do you snort when you laugh? No, my cackle is startling enough.

Do you believe in magic? Like wizards and shit or what?

Are dogs a man's best friend? Again, who writes this? I don't know, but a warm kitten in the lap is certainly nice.

Do you believe in divorce? What kind of a stupid question is that? Believe? As in, what, an aspiration? No, that's pretty ridiculous. But... to say I don't believe in divorce means I don't think it's okay to end a legal partnership when safety, happiness, etc is at stake and what idiot would agree to that?

Can you do the Moonwalk? No. But, I haven't tried in, say, twenty years, so who knows?

Do you make a lot of mistakes? I convince myself I make tons, but probably only make half of what I imagine.

Is it cold outside today? Yes. It is 14. I am not lying.

What was the last thing you ate? Broccoli.

Do you wear nail polish? Yes. I somehow feel put-together and okay when my feet and hands are looking nice.

What's the most annoying tv commercial? That headache compress thing that shouts the name again and again. Ungood. Especially when you need the product. Oy.

Do you shop at American Eagle? What do you think? Do I look like I wear a lot of polo-inspired, camping-chic or Scandinavian wooly attire? Oh, and they carry insulting sizes like 00. 00? Like, "Yay! I'm so little I don't exist!" Puh-leze.

Favorite song at the moment? Today it is This Charming Man by The Smiths.

Who are you tagging?
I'm not. This was a long-ass meme!If you have the time and inclination, knock yourself out.

Now, in other news. I need to find a tailor, a brown marker, a kitchen table, still more Jewish bloggers, and keep my day low-key. I'm still just barely managing to not be full-on ill.

Actually, except for that little bump on your head, (a hematoma just from being born) you were an absolutely beautiful baby. Everyone just wanted to touch you. And you certainly don't look anything like an old man now. (You should come to South Florida and see some of the old geezers here. Speedos and all. It's enough to make one barf.) You have grown from a beautiful baby to a beautiful young woman.
As for the snoring, only when you have a really stuffy nose.
Love Mom
