Sunday Stealing: The Procrastination Tool Meme

1. What is your favorite sit-down restaurant?
I love diners. Basically any diner will do, but I have a special place in my heart for the Athena Diner in Westport, Connecticut.

2. What food could you eat for 2 weeks straight and not get sick of it?
Cheese. Any cheese will do, but I loves me a good brie.

3. Have you ever had anything removed from your body?
My wisdom teeth and several other molars.

4. What is the last heavy item you lifted?
My old entertainment center.

5. Have you ever been knocked unconscious?
Only when I had teeth pulled (see above).

6. If it were possible, would you want to know the day you were going to die?
NO!!! Why would I live my life in worry?

7. If you could change your name, what would you change it to?
Mrs. Jackman

8. What’s your goal for the year?
To continue to build my nest egg and pay off credit card debts.

9. Last person you hugged?
Mama Cat...I was up at the rents house this weekend.

10. First place you went this morning?
My parents' office to say "good morning."

11. Do you always answer your phone?
No. It depends on what's on the caller ID. Plus, there are some nights where I just don't feel like talking to anyone.

12. It’s four in the morning and you get a text message, who is it?
My friends and family know better than to text me at that hour of the day.

13. If you could change your eye color what would it be?
I like my brown eyes, merci beaucoup. Hell, Van Morrison even wrote a song about me and my eyes!

14. What’s on your wish list for your birthday?
Weeeeelllllll...since it's this Tuesday, Kittens...seriously, though, my fam gave me a gift certificate to a spa, and nothing can really top that one...unless I met Hugh Jackman face to face.

15. Does the future make you more nervous or excited?

16. Do you have any saved texts?
Yeah...I'm a pack rat when it comes to texting.

17. Ever been in a car wreck?
I've been in a couple of minor accidents, but nothing that's ever taken lives or caused vehicular destruction. Knock wood! (Kitten reaches over and knocks on her desk. Does particle board count as wood?)

18. Do you have an accent?
Not really...I do let an occasional generic New York accent slip through my speech. I say words like "cawfee" and "tawk." Remember, my parents are from Westchester County, New York and North Jersey. I grew up with these accents!

19. What was the last song to make you cry?
I really don't remember.

20. What did you do last night?
Went out on a birthday dinner with the fam, then slept over at the 'rents.

21. Have you ever felt like you hit rock bottom?
Yeah...November 2007, when my financial problems came to a head.

Life's too short to hate.

At my best friend's house with a group of our peeps!

25. What song represents you?
See #13..."Brown Eyed Girl" by Van Morrison.

I love these! I lived in Jersey for a while and every so often a word or two slips out with that accent but I think it's fun.

Do share how the spa experience goes, Mrs. Jackman!

I ALWAYS think of you when I hear Brown Eyed Girl. Van called to say it was all about you. How was that football field?

There is much I like and agree with on this list! Diners - best breakfasts! Cheese - we've been having cheese and cracker parties every afternoon here at work. Mrs. Jackman - you make me feel all right about my fake boyfriends by mentioning yours (I know yours are real ;), and much more age appropriate than mine are). I too am a "Brown Eyed Girl".

Mrs. Jackman!! ha ha!!

This was fun to read. I love reading and doing memes.

I have been in a bad car accident. Car was wasted and if I wasn't wearing my seat belt, I could have hit the windshield. Freakin' Scary!

I have my wisdom teeth, but only because 4 others were pulled out when I had braces.
