Going Around

  • Are you named after someone?
    • Yes, but not anyone I know. My mother saw the name “Leslie Diane” in a church bulletin once and thought it sounded pretty. I think she was the organist.
  • When is the last time you cried?
    • I don’t remember. I could make up something, because I cry a lot, but at the moment, nothing comes to mind.
  • Do you like your handwriting?
    • I like the weird way my handwriting starts to look like the person I’m thinking of while I’m writing… like, say I’m thinking about Meagan. Involuntarily my handwriting goes into block capital letters.
  • What is your favorite lunch meat?
    • It changes all the time, but right now it’s brown-sugared ham.
  • Do you have kids?
    • Not that I’m aware of……. ;P
  • If you were another person, would you be friends with you?
    • It depends on the day I met me. How did we see each other the first time? Was I laughing or sitting in a corner? It matters.
  • Do you use sarcasm?
    • I don’t so much use it as bathe in it daily.
  • Do you still have your tonsils?
    • Yes, but I am not sure that this is necessarily a good thing.
  • Would you bungee jump?
    • I think so. I’d have to get the opportunity to say yes or no first. However, the fact that I have not put down money on my own says it’s not necessarily a life goal.
  • What is your favorite cereal?
    • Multi-grain Cheerios straight out of the box.
  • Do you untie your shoes when you take them off?
    • I have to- I wear Chucks and Docs, neither of which lend themselves to kicking them off by bending the heels.
  • Do you think you are strong?
    • Only after the fact, never in the moment.
  • What is your favorite ice cream?
    • Spumoni
  • What is the first thing you notice about people?
    • Whether or not they hold my attention intellectually.
  • Red or pink?
    • Why choose? I wear them both, but rarely together.
  • What is the least favorite thing you like about yourself?
    • I have to pick just one? I hate the extraordinary lengths I will go to be “right,” and even then, I’m usually not. Just leading the charge into hell, anyway.
  • What color pants and shoes are you wearing right now?
    • You mentioned nothing at the beginning of this survey that said I needed to be wearing pants…. That being said, I still have my red plaid pajamas on, and I am barefoot.
  • What was the last thing you ate?
    • A miniature Mr. Goodbar
  • What are you listening to right now?
    • Mostly silence interrupted by cars passing outside.
  • If you were a crayon, what color would you be?
    • Cerulean, which is the color of most of my wardrobe, too.
  • Favorite smell?
    • Dr Pepper, with the soda close enough for the bubbles to tickle my nose.
  • Who was the last person you spoke to on the phone?
    • My dad- I was telling him about Google Allo and Google Spaces
  • Favorite sport to watch?
    • Baseball…. Always baseball.
  • Hair color?
    • Brown, but with more and more grey with each passing haircut. It looks distinguished. I like it because I look less like a ten-year-old.
  • Eye color?
    • Brown, although I like to call it “limpid pools of espresso.”
  • Do you wear contacts?
    • I would if I could, but there are prisms in my glasses.
  • Favorite food to eat?
    • I’ve been on a potato chip craze lately. Found Ketchup Chips at 7-Eleven Thursday and I haven’t stopped thinking about them since. THANKS, CANADA.
  • Scary movies or happy endings?
    • Yes.
  • Last movie you watched?
    • The Secret Life of Pets. It was ok.
  • What color shirt are you wearing?
    • Multi-colored. White background with rainbow letters that say “women’s rights are human rights.” It’s from the Clinton campaign, and it’s got her signature stamped on the back.
  • Summer or Winter?
    • Having lived in Houston for so many years, I will always choose winter. I’ve had enough deep heat to last my whole life. MD/DC/VA can be just as hot, but not for as long.
  • Hugs or kisses?
    • From whom?
  • What book are you currently reading?
    • Too many to list, because I have a Kindle and just pick something based on my mood.
  • What is on your mouse pad?
    • I don’t think I’ve owned a mouse pad since the early 2000s… perhaps late ‘90s.
  • What is the last TV program you watched?
    • Breaking Bad….. again.
  • What is the best sound?
    • Someone saying “I’m sorry” and/or “I forgive you.”
  • Rolling Stones or The Beatles?
    • Who are the Rolling Stones?
  • What is the furthest you have traveled?
    • Off meds- and it was memorable enough to realize chemical imbalances are a thing.
  • Do you have a special talent?
    • I have plenty of them… not all for publication.
  • Where were you born?
    • In Tyler, Texas, at Mother Frances Hospital with the statue of Jesus directing traffic.

Well, that was anticlimactic. Any other questions? Just ask.
