Sunday Stealing: The Trivia About Me Meme

Trivia about me, well this meme certainly fits with the overall genre of this little blog! As I write this opening I haven’t yet really looked at the questions in the meme yet, but I’m curious as to what I’ll find. Let’s dive right into the deep end then, shall we?


Do you get regular massages? No. I wish I did, but that is one luxury I am far from affording right now.

Do you have an answering machine? No, I have voicemail through the telephone company.

What cuss word do you use the most? This is pretty much a repeat of a question from last week I believe, and the answer is still “shit.”

Are you underweight or overweight? One look and you would clearly see that I am overweight.

Can you see your veins? Not very well, and might I add, I am glad of it. Seeing veins grosses me out.


Soap? All My Children. Oh wait, did you mean like real soap, the kind with which you wash? Oh, well then Irish Spring – made for a man, but I like it too. (Do you have to be old to get that?)

Fruit? Bananas because they are easy to peel, easy to eat, and really tasty.

Kind of red meat? Bacon. If you have to have red meat you might as well go all the way to the really bad for you kind.

Fish? Tilapia or Cod. I’m a big fan of the mild tasting fishes.

Candy bar? I have a new one. It’s the 3 Musketeers Truffle Bar. Have you tried one yet? No? Oh you should. You really should. Best candy bar ever.

Have You Ever…

Eaten a whole bag of potato chips? Well, duh, of course I have. I didn’t build up this poundage being a light eater.

Eaten lobster? Tried it once. Hated it. Never ate it again.

Climbed a mountain? Not unless you count the mountain of laundry I scale daily to get through the laundry room.

Been skydiving? Nope, but I would like to someday.

Been water skiing? Nope, and don’t care to.

Do You…

Wish you could change something about your life? Yes, but it isn’t worth dwelling on since I just have to deal with life as it is.

Like your nose? Why yes I do. It is one of my better features.

Like salt and vinegar chips? Yes, particularly the ones at Jimmy John’s.

Eat salsa? I love salsa. I eat salsa with chips, on omelets, on potatoes, mixed into rice, over fish. Salsa is good.

Own a boat? Nope, and wouldn’t even if I had the chance.

What Is…

A small thing that people let slide but that actually has dire consequences? Not using a condom. A woman who lets that slide risks pregnancy and who knows what kind of STDs, including HIV.

Your most macho trait? Watching sports on TV.

The longest relationship you’ve ever had? Sadly enough, marriage to W.

Your most embarrassing thoughts? I have one I won’t even share here and that only one other person in the world knows. If he were ever to share it with anyone (and I do fear that he might) and I knew about it I would die of embarrassment.

Your most shameful moment? When I admitted to myself that I didn’t have the internal fortitude to remain faithful in my marriage.


Bath/Shower? Shower for getting clean, bath for relaxing.

Markers/Crayons? Crayons, the big box of 64.

Pens/Pencils? Mechanical pencils (0.5 lead, 0.7 is too fat) for almost everything except where pens must be used for signatures and such.

Jelly/Cream Cheese? Jelly on toast, cream cheese and jelly on bagel.

Bagel/Toast? Bagel if it’s breakfast on it’s own, toast if it is accompanying an egg dish.


My greatest weakness is… self-indulgence.

I wish I was… the perfect weight for my height.

Three things I wouldn’t do for a million dollars are… (1) kill anyone, (2) give up my son, and (3) endure extreme pain even for a short time.

The oddest thing I’ve ever put in my mouth is… a dollar bill when I was a kid. I think about it now and think about all the places it could have been before I put it in my mouth, and it makes my stomach turn.


Credit card you had? American Express card that I got a few months after I landed my first post-college job.

Loan you got was for? My 1985 Buick Century in the spring of 1985.

Paycheck was for how much? It has been so very long ago I don’t remember, but my very first paycheck was when I was in college for a part time job at minimum wage ($3.50/hr I believe) so it wasn’t much.

Time you had stitches? When I had two wisdom teeth taken out when I was 19.

Time you went to the hospital for something? When I was three and my mom and I were in a car accident. I was treated and released.


List everything you ate in the last 24 hours? As of 10:00 a.m. this morning including drinks – lots of black coffee, two cookies, vegetarian fajita quesadilla, chips and salsa, Cherry Coke, water, meat loaf, cheese fries, bread, broccoli, brownie, orange, apricot mango yogurt, banana, Fiber 1 bar.

Last thing you used a credit card for? I haven’t used a credit card since W and I separated so it is hard to remember. I’m going to guess it was probably a hotel room, but I don’t know.

What was your job previous to the one you have now? Insurance company accounting drone.

Last thing you celebrated? N doing well on a test.

Last time you were at a sports bar? I was at Buffalo Wild Wings a couple of weeks ago.

I got stuck on the massages... I got them regularly as part of the physical therapy for my neck, and mmmm... I miss that!
