19 ways of looking at a KellyGO

My friend Spleen has a meme on her blog that I'm totally stealing, just because I have nothing to say these days.

1. Do you like blue cheese?
I love all the stinky cheeses.

2. Do you get nervous before doctor appointments?
Very. One doctor diagnosed me with "white coat hypertension."

3. Favorite Christmas Song?
"Little Drummer Boy." It's Thea's favorite Christmas song, too.

4. Do you work with people who idolize you?
I'm not sure they even respect me.

5. Do you have A.D.D.?
No, I have a great ability to focus.

6. Name 3 thoughts at this exact moment.
"ADD, what a weird question."
"The idolizing question was weird, too."
"Who wrote this?"

7. Name something you bought yesterday.
It wasn't yesterday, but the last thing I bought was four kids' Halloween costumes: cheetah, dalmatian puppy, lizard, and dinosaur.

8. Current worry right now?
That the bank collapses will make it impossible for Todd to get enough student loans to cover daycare. (This is actually a very real and present concern.)

9. Current hate right now?
That one of our dogs needs his butt glands expressed.

10. Favorite place to be?
My dining room.

11. Where would you like to go?
Most pressingly, to visit my sister and her girlfriend in Asbury Park, NJ, or to Hawaii to visit family there.

12. Do you like sleeping on satin sheets?
I don't really think about sheets that much.

13. Favorite girl's name?
Theadora

14. Favorite boy's name?
Liam

15. Last thing that made you laugh?
A friend telling me and Spleen about how his dog's anal glands needed to be expressed, but he couldn't figure out what was causing the smell and ... well, then it just got obscene.

16. Worst injury you've ever had?
Breaking my arm doing cartwheels.

17. Does someone have a crush on you?
Oh god, no. I have two kids. No one wants any piece of that.

18. What is your favorite book?
The Exile and the Kingdom by Albert Camus

19. What were you doing 12 AM last night?
Counting backwards from 100 to one and then up again to 100, over and over.

I love the smelly cheese too! I have never slept on satin sheets...so who would know. Love the idea of getting a doggy, but not a fan of the anal gland issue.

Oh, yeah, #9 is going to stick with me. If I did this meme, I think I would use this as my answers to #6, #8, #9, #15, and #19. Thanks for that.

his dog's anal glands needed to be expressed

would that be in poetry, prose, music, or some other art? i am doggy, hear me poo?

Re #4, if anyone "idolized" me at work, I'd think they were downright strange. I did have a creepy coworker fresh out of school that started to dress like me and got my haircut. Gives me chills just thinking about it!

Hey, we can ride together up to Asbury Park. My mom is literally 5 miles away from your sis.

Haha!! The gland expression...I so understand that. But you are a fan of all stinky cheeses so maybe the smell doesn't bother you?

Are you having trouble sleeping? All this counting and all I mean.

**pssst!**

Hope it's alright if I borrowed this meme. :)
