OoOoo! Fun!  I’ll play.  ๐Ÿ™‚

 

1. If you could know the answer to any question (besides “What is the meaning of life?”), what would it be?

What really happened to the lost Roanoke colony? 


2. What story does your family always tell about you?

The story of my head injury because it was so traumatic and scary.  Not that I remember…

 

3. What’s something you know you do differently than most people?

I have to cover any green light in my bedroom at night.  Red light is fine but green light will literally keep me awake all night.  Any alarm clock, cable box, etc that has a green light gets covered.

 

4. If you just won ten million dollars, would you quit your job?

I actually think I’d rather have my FI get a less stressful, less demanding job before I worried about quitting mine.  Once that was taken care of then I’d probably take a break from work for at least a few years.  I do like my job though.

 

@Mrs.KMM:  You didn’t answer!

1. idk… Have/Will aliens ever try to make contact with Earth?

2. I started Kindergarten when I was 4.5 and insisted on taking the bus by myself. My mom walked me to the bus stop and after I left she started crying (I’m the eldest) and drove to my school. On the first day of school all the kids would go to the cafeteria and sit at a table with their class/teacher. i figured out the cafeteria part but my mom eventually walked in and found me sitting quietly by myself waiting for someone to notice me/take me to my teacher.

3. I hate touching my food. Its the reason I don’t like wings. When I eat sandwiches they stay in their wrapper and I peel it back as I go.

4. No, I’d get bored

I want to play, but I have to think about some of these and I’m about to run out the door! (I’ll come back later.)

1. If you could know the answer to any question (besides “What is the meaning of life?”), what would it be?

 I would like to know why people who are awful at driving get their licenses.

2. What story does your family always tell about you?

Probably that my parents used “don’t make me count to THREE” on me until I was far too old for it. They eventually had to just stop saying it because they felt bad I was getting so old but still so uncertain/scared of what would happen after that number 3 came. I honestly don’t think my parents ever knew what would happen after 3 either, because they never got that far.

3. What’s something you know you do differently than most people?

I write with my left hand… which is different than most people I know. (I also used to eat cereal with juice instead of milk…)

4. If you just won ten million dollars, would you quit your job?

Maybe. I think that’s a situation where you don’t know until it happens. I think I might quit this job, and get a different job in the same field.

1. If you could know the answer to any question (besides “What is the meaning of life?”), what would it be?   Ohhhhh…..that’s a good one.  Hmmm….Is Elvis really dead?  What about TuPac and Biggie?  Ok..seriously kidding on those.  I think I would ask “what is the stock market going to do tomorrow.”  They could be very beneficial to my retirement ๐Ÿ™‚

2. What story does your family always tell about you?  When I was 4, my teenage cousins were supposed to be babysitting me, but had a party instead.  I took advantage of the situation, dressed up as a bum (got the idea off of a Robin Hood cartoon) and went around asking “Alms for the poor.”  I got $10 off of that gig.  Pretty genius idea fora  4 year old if you ask me ๐Ÿ™‚

3. What’s something you know you do differently than most people?  I yawn with my mouth closed.  True story.  It’s an aquired talent I picked up while in early morning accounting class in college ๐Ÿ™‚

4. If you just won ten million dollars, would you quit your job?  No…but I would take an immediate vacation!  I would keep on working though.  Once I have kiddos, then I would quit.

1. If you could know the answer to any question (besides “What is the meaning of life?”), what would it be?

What’s the sure-fire way to fix the economy??

2. What story does your family always tell about you?

The time when I was four and tried to relieve myself on the stairs. Charming.

3. What’s something you know you do differently than most people?

I eat dinner foods for breakfast. Especially Mexican foods. I love it.

4. If you just won ten million dollars, would you quit your job?

Yeah, I would. I’d quit my job and use a small amount to get a degree at the college of my choice, to get a better job post grad. Then, I’d put 60% of it in the bank, use 10% to pay down the student loans we’ve already acquired, and use the rest to live off of/ finish putting DH through his doctorate program.

Then, we’d dig into that ONLY IF WE HAD too, if not, we’d put it into an annuity and let it acquire interest and be millionaires again when we retired.

1. If you could know the answer to any question (besides “What is the meaning of life?”), what would it be?

What’s going to happen after I die?

They always tell the one about my kindergarten report card that read: “S is very sweet, but it would be helpful if you told her to stop bossing us around.”

3. What’s something you know you do differently than most people?

I peel EVERYTHING off my orange segments, like this:

4. If you just won ten million dollars, would you quit your job?

Yes; I’d open a bakery/tea shop.

such a good idea!

 

1. If you could know the answer to any question (besides “What is the meaning of life?”), what would it be? Why do young, healthy people die? I know morbid, right?

2. What story does your family always tell about you? Tough one, but it would have to be the time when I was in first grade with chicken pox. My dad was filming me. I was pissed and had an attitude. I told him that the questions he was asking me was “baby stuff” and so he asked me a harder question.  It was, What is 87 + 4? And I said 31.

3. What’s something you know you do differently than most people? I put tupperware in the dishwasher

4. If you just won ten million dollars, would you quit your job? I would quit my job knowing that I have the security. But I would find a nother one that I enjoy

1. If you could know the answer to any question (besides “What is the meaning of life?”), what would it be?

Who was Jack the Ripper?

2. What story does your family always tell about you?

When I was 4 I had a major obsession with the Little Mermaid. One day my mom decided to put it on for my sister and I and got in the shower. Well, my sister, who was 2 or so decided to scale the floor to ceiling bookshelf in the living room that was right next to the TV. She found a piece of glass on one of the high shelves and put in her mouth. She cut herself, was bleeding and screaming. When my mom asked me what happened I had no idea… I had been singing the Little Mermaid theme song and not paying attention to any of it.

3. What’s something you know you do differently than most people?

I take apart and section everything I eat. For instance, I take apart Twix bars and eat the caramel first, then the cookie. If I had a plate of rice, chicken and veggies I would eat one thing at a time and won’t mix foods. The rice would have to be done before I ate any chicken and I wouldn’t touch the veggies until the chicken was done.

4. If you just won ten million dollars, would you quit your job?

Nope. I would buy myself a BMW M3, a couple of pairs of Loubies and probably a house. The rest would be put away in savings and I would keep on keepin’ on.

@.twist.: lmao at counting to three. My dad used to threaten to call Santa Claus and in the springtime he would threaten to call the Easter Bunny. My parents said it was hilarious how much I would freak out.

@Mrs.KMM: That is a really good question!

1. If you could know the answer to any question (besides “What is the meaning of life?”), what would it be?

Is my life heading in the right direction? (As in will I be happy with where I end up from the decisions I am making)

2. What story does your family always tell about you?

I don’t have just one specific one. I tend to be clumsy, not embarrass easily and speak before thinking it through (“blonde moments”), so my family loves to focus on all those when I am the topic.

3. What’s something you know you do differently than most people?

If I don’t check my alarm multiple times in a row I can’t get to sleep, I eat candy that is colored in certain orders. I most likely have more.

4. If you just won ten million dollars, would you quit your job?

Absolutely. If I got bored I would look for one later on.
