Total Cheater Post.

I'm stealing this from Stephee's blog.
I worked all day, and came home to make delicious homemade salsa. If I were alone, I'd probably eat the entire thing in one sitting (it's supper, 'k?), but having other people in the house forces me to adhere to some shred of propriety.

Anyway. Here's the active theft...


First Name: Special

Were you named after someone? Actually, I was named (IRL) after a woman my mom knew in High School. She liked the name, and here we are.

Do you wish on stars? Of course! I also throw salt over my left shoulder, and wish on flying milkweed fluffs too.

When was the last time you cried? Last week, watching coverage of the release of the 9/11 audio. I wept like a little kid.

Do you like your handwriting? It does what it has to, and more and more looks like my mother's, which is amusing and confusing for the people we work with. (As we already sound alike on the phone, and over the walkie-talkies.

What class in high school do you think was totally useless? Algebra.

Do you have a journal? I have a pink diary with a unicorn on it, does that count?

Your nicknames? G., Sauce, El, Eeeeee!, "What's your name again"?/Diane's Girl (retirement home only)

Would you bungee jump? No, thank you.

Do you untie your shoes when you take them off? I try not to wear stuff that ties, so the point's moot.

Do you think that you are strong? Physically, yes. Emotionally, not so much.

What's your favorite ice cream flavor? Depends on the day, but I am rather fond of Coffee Heath Bar and/or New York Super Fudge Chunk.

Last thing you ate? Homemade salsa, Utz tortilla chips (rated best by Consumer Reports, made by local folks!)

If you were a crayon, what color would you be? Do they make a color called "Tired?" If not, probably "Pasty, borderline albino pale"

What is the weather like right now? Stifling, with a tinge of ass.

Probably kickin' it in Irish Kevin's, listening to Jared Michael Hobgood, then waitin' for Matt Avery's set to come on, and/or chillin' with Tioti & Heather and the gang up at the Garden. (With large quantities of Strongbow) Or possibly in bed. Preferably not alone. Not necessarily to poke. Preferably with a bipedal hominid, and not my cat.

Note to self: Suggest "Slumber Party Massacre" for next cheddar theater. Looks positively terrible. (Quintessential early '80s teen horror flick. Oh YES!)
