Here’s A Quarter… Call Someone Who Cares…

Because it’s Friday, my brain is only allowed to expend a quarter of the energy it expends on, say, a Thursday.  So, I decided to just answer some questions I’m sure you have ALL been dying to know.  Hold it back, Clem… they’re coming up.  I’ll give you a quarter if you actually get all the way through this ‘get to know me’ quiz and still care at the end. 

What was the last movie you watched?
That would either have to be Tangled at home or Unknown at the theater… where I did inspect my seat for big wads of pink chewing gum… had that happen before.

Siblings?
One sister with 32 personalities… named Sybil… KIDDING!!!  She has one personality, except when she is PMSing and then I don’t even bother to get close enough to find out.  

What are you listening to right now?
The voices in my head talking about pie… mmmmm… pie. 

What do you consider a vacation?
LOL!  What’s a vacation?  The last time I went on a vacation, I journeyed to my couch, sat on it, and pointed this rectangular object at a big box with lights in it… we went all over the world… me and my remote control. 

What famous person do you (or other people) think you resemble?
Somebody once told me I looked like a cow… I can’t remember if that was before or after I stuck a fresh wad of gum on their chair… probably after.  I’ve had a few people tell me Tina Fey… but I don’t see it much. 

What is your favorite pizza topping?
CHOCOLATE!  Oh, I’m supposed to come across as normal?  Cheese and pineapple. 

Do you crack your knuckles?
GROSSSSSSS!  But I almost did giving someone a knuckle sandwich.

What song do you hate the most?
Why would I say it outloud?  Stupidest question invented.  If I told you, you would automatically sing it, and then I’d want to crack my knuckles on you skull!

What’s your most annoying habit?
I know what other people would say my most annoying habit is… being the germ-a-phobe police.  If you don’t wash your hands properly, I will tell you.  I ain’t shy… but I’m germ-free.  (ATTENTION:  Sanitize your shopping cart handles, people!!)

What is your best physical feature?
Ummmmmm… always hated this question, because I never liked anything about myself physically… so, I’ll say… get back to me on that. 

What 3 things can always be found in your refrigerator?
Chocolate cake, lard sauce, and a bottle of Jack… Jack Daniels.  KIDDING!!!  Cheese, lettuce, and bottled water. 

If they made a movie about your life, what actor/actress would be you?
Jerry Springer or Judge Judy… crazy and cantankerous… what could be more perfect?

Favorite musician(s)/bands you’ve seen in concert?
A tie between Sugarland and Celine Dion in Vegas… both I’d see again in a heart beat!  Others would be that one drunk dude at the Karaoke Party. 

Do you talk to yourself?
Do I talk to myself… pshhhhh… what a crazy question.  Why yes… yes I do… and then if I’m caught talking to myself, I cover it up by pretending I was talking to the cat.  What’s more crazy… a crazy cat lady or just a crazy lady?

What was the last thing you ate?
Taco-like bean salad with lettuce, tomaters, chili beans, cheese, and a multi-grain tortilla. 

If you were a crayon what color would you be?
Macaroni and Cheese… that’s a color… aske the crayon box!  I think I’d be purple because at this point I’d say that ‘s my favorite color.

Have you ever cried for no reason?
Uhhhh… seriously?  Last time I checked I had an X chromosome. 

Favorite Day of the Year?
National Chocolate Appreciation Day… or Christmas. 

Chocolate or Vanilla?
Another dumb question… how does this quiz not know me better.  

How many pillows do you sleep with?
My pillow configuration is a very scientific process.  I have to have 4 pillows at all times… no more, no less.   

What do you do when vending machines steal your money?
Run away and hide under the bed.  I’m too whimpy to actually find someone to deal with it.

Showers or Baths?
I’ve always said that Baths are just stewing in your own filth… showers… showers ALL the way! 

Dream job as a Kid?
When I was a kid I wanted to be a bird… because they could fly around all day and poop on people’s cars… if that job didn’t pan out I always wanted to be a singer.

Happy Friday, friends of mine!  I hope you all have a splendid weekend.  If you’re bored, do this quiz too, either in the comments or on your own blog and then post the link in the comments… I’d love to learn more about you… because I do care… and last time I checked I was plain out of quarters!

Kind of feel sorry for this kid... he checked out this book from the library and was immediately attacked by a gaggle of bird-like creatures!!!

    • LOL! I’m glad I’m not the only germ-a-phobe, Louisa. I could definitely use your organizational skillz, though. I’m afraid I fail at that… my room needs some serious attention!

    OK I just got done watching Monsters vs. Aliens & Unstoppable with my daughter and her boyfriend. Fell asleep for a few minutes but didn’t miss much.

    My very favorite vacation is to go spend time at our house in Sandpoint, ID. Recently I’ve had the chance to go to some amazing place like Tonga and Honduras but I’d take my “Sandpoint” first anyday. By the way, you are welcome to come with me any time.

    What famous person do you (or other people) think you resemble?

    Well the concerts that I’ve seen originally weren’t my choice but turned out to be great. My husband made me go with him to the Rolling Stones which I wasn’t really enthused about and I think Mick Jagger is soooo ugly but it was a really great concert. I also went with a girlfriend to Elton John for her birthday and he was simply amazing. And again I don’t think much of him as a person.

    Do you talk to yourself?
    Oh my!!!! Do I ever. I have to talk out loud all the time. Even my co-workers get annoyed.

    What was the last thing you ate?
    I just got done eating some ice cream from “Sub Zero”. Wow!! I had never been there and now I’m in love. I’m going to have to really work out now.

    If you were a crayon what color would you be?
    I never got a 64 pack of crayons ever. Isn’t that sad so I have to pick a color from the 8 pack. I’d have to be purple.

    What do you do when vending machines steal your money?
    Kick them, really hard!

    Showers or Baths?
    Showers all the way. I especially like the ones with two shower heads. That’s the best.

    Dream job as a Kid?
    I can’t remember that far back. Although I did wait til I was 40 to decide what I wanted to be when I grow up. Better late than never.

    • AMEN in a handbasket, Jacque! I’d have to agree that Mick Jagger is all lips and no face… glad the man can put on a great concert, though!

      I love that you mentioned Napoleon Dynamite! One of my favorite movies… I could laugh forever at that… my folks don’t quite “get” the humor, though!

  9. Avster

    I know of a back forty that you should definitely check into for a vacation. 😉

    “Ummmmmm… always hated this question, because I never liked anything about myself physically… so, I’ll say… get back to me on that. ”
    Look in the mirror and smile and you’ll have your answer. 🙂

    • I guess I should probably pick the broccoli pieces out of the ole teeth first! 😛 As for the back forty… have the residents upgraded the bathroom facilities yet? What kind of catalog is in there?

  10. Andrea S.

    Whitney, you crack me up!!! I love reading your blog because no matter what your day was like, you can find the funny side of it and convey that to the blog-stalkers, like me!! Thanks for taking the time to do this and I loved reading your quiz answers. Ah, got my laugh in today, I can continue on with life. Thanks!!
