The Ten Questions Meme

Time for another meme, sent to me by David A. from Winnipeg. As always, send your memes to me, and I'll do 'em eventually. I'm such a meme whore.

1. When you were born, how much did you weigh?
9 lbs. 4 oz. I was 3 weeks late, and turned around backward. Emergency caesarean in the late 60's; the doctor gave my mother and I a 10% chance to live, and wouldn't you know we beat the odds.

2. What's you're sugar poison?
All things pastry. I am especially weak for a well-made donut. And a hot, homemade chocolate cookie right out of the oven? I will shoot small children for a taste.

3. If you had to choose between meat and cheese for the rest of your life, which would you choose? Then be specific.
I think it has to be cheese. I love meat, but I cannot spend the rest of my life without brie and gouda. Mmmmm, gouda.

4. What, is your opinion, is the worst song ever?
It's a tie, and they both send me into a murderous, uncontrollable rage when they appear on the radio: "Hotel California" by The Eagles, and "Margaritaville" by Jimmy Buffett. Ugh, disgusting.

5. Who was your favorite teacher growing up and why?
I had a bunch, but my high school AP History teacher, Mr. Dennis Bosquet, made the story of America seem like a really soapy episode of Dynasty. He kept his classes enraputured from start to finish, hanging on every word. I also had some wonderful mentors in college, who I'm thankful to have to this day: Dr. Shirlene Holmes and Juanita Rockwell.

6. What personal activity, when performed in public, bothers you the most?
Standing in the middle of the sidewalk. It's a sidewalk, not a sidestand.

7. Ok, there's a $50 bill lying on the ground. You pick it up. Dumbfounded by your incredible luck, what do you selfishly purchase?
Knowing me, I call up Mr. ModFab and say, "Woo hoo! I found fifty damn dollars! Where you wanna go eat tonight?" And then we blow it all, plus extra for the booze.

8. Do you have a recurring nightmare? If so, explain.
No recurring nightmares, but I had a scary one a few months back. I was given the job of strangling friends of mine to death, and I had no way out of doing it. I woke up crying and in shock, unable to sleep. I don't even want to BEGIN to have my therapist take that one apart.

9. Name one place on Earth you've never been, but vow to visit at least once.
Italy. I need two weeks, I think. I have to see Rome, Siena, Florence, Milan, Naples, and Tuscany...and then I have to go stay on the Italian coast, like the ladies in Enchanted April. I also have to go to Australia soon; I have blogfriends in Perth, Sydney and Melbourne now, and all of them have said I can come visit.

10. You notice that question #9 wasn't really a question. You feel smart for catching such a small detail. What else can you do really well that reminds you how smart you are?
I'm actually a very good speller...was fifth grade state spelling champ, in fact. I misspell things all the time on this blog, but that's mostly due to my terrible typing skills.
