Procrastination, Thy Name is Meme
So I'm completely exhausted and have about 50 more pages of reading that I absolutely have to do tonight (but probably won't). So what would be the smart thing for me to do?
Yeah . . .
1. FIRST NAME? Lisa
2. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE? My father claims that my full first name is a family name. But I’ve seen the family tree, and going back 150 years, only one other person has my name. So . . .
3. WHEN DID YOU LAST CRY? On the drive up here, so about six weeks ago. Although the next two weeks may see many tears.
4. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING? No. It’s neat, but too round and young.
5. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH MEAT? Tuna.
6. IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON, WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU? Yes.
7. DO YOU JOURNAL? Sporadically.
8. DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS? Yes.
9. WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP? Already have. And I have photographic proof. If I can ever locate that CD again, maybe I’ll share.
10. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CEREAL? Corn flakes.
11. DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF? No, even though I know that I should.
12. DO YOU THINK YOU ARE STRONG? No, not at all.
13. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ICE CREAM FLAVOR? Ben & Jerry’s Peanut Butter Cup.
14. SHOE SIZE? An 8, I think. But my feet keep growing.
15. FAVORITE COLOR? Blue.
16. WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT YOURSELF? Being passive-aggressive.
17. WHO DO YOU MISS THE MOST? Probably Liz. We’ve become separated by more than miles over the past few years.
18. DO YOU WANT EVERYONE TO SEND THIS BACK TO YOU? If someone else wants to post this, go for it.
19. WHAT COLOR PANTS AND SHOES ARE YOU WEARING? Black pants with green flip-flops.
20. LAST THING YOU ATE? Bread & butter. But there's some chocolate calling my name.
21. WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW? My obnoxious neighbors who either aren’t students or don’t give a damn about their classes. They’ve decided that a Tuesday night is a great night for a party.
22. IF YOU WERE A CRAYON WHAT COLOR WOULD YOU BE? Yellow green.
23. FAVORITE SMELLS? Vanilla, fresh-baked chocolate-chip cookies, coffee, my puppy.
24. WHO WAS THE LAST PERSON YOU TALKED TO ON THE PHONE? A classmate.
25. THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE YOU'RE ATTRACTED TO? The ring finger. Seriously. At my age, you learn that it’s not worth checking out the rest of the package if the package belongs to someone else. And at my age, if the package is worth checking out, chances are that it has already been claimed.
26. DO YOU LIKE THE PERSON WHO SENT THIS TO YOU? Well, no one sent it to me. I stole it from Scott, and he seems like an okay guy.
27. FAVORITE DRINK? Smooth white wine.
28. FAVORITE SPORT? Purely as a spectator: baseball and Aussie Rules, although I haven’t seen the later in ages because (a) I’m not in Australia and (b) I don’t have a television.
29. EYE COLOR? Blue-grey.
30. HAT SIZE? No idea, but I do think my head is larger than average.

36. HUGS OR KISSES? Hugs.
37. FAVORITE DESSERT? Only one? German chocolate cheesecake.
38. WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING? “The Interpretation of Dreams” by Sigmund Freud. “Poverty, Inequality, and Health” ed. by Leon and Walt. “Worker in the Cane” by Sydney Mintz. Ask me tomorrow and I’ll have a whole new list.
39. WHAT'S ON YOUR MOUSE PAD? Don’t have one; I have a laptop.
40. WHAT DID YOU WATCH LAST NIGHT ON TV? Don’t have a television.
