50 Random ?'s: #26-50

Continuation of a meme from a couple of weeks ago called "50 Random ?'s".

Click here for #1-25.

26} What is your secret weapon to lure the opposite sex?: Hmmm.....I'm married, therefore, my secret weapon is that I'm forbidden fruit.

27} What are your plans for tonight?: Not sure, but will be recovering in some particular way from dealing with dolts all day at work.

28} Who is the last person to send you a My Space comment or message?: I don't do MySpace. I have enough problems doing this blog, that blog, Facebook and Chat Rooms, in that order.

29} Next trip you're going to take.: Not a clue. Body is too broken down with this malady and that malady to do anything like traveling.

30} Ever go to camp?: Yes. Next question.

31} Were you an honor student in school?: Excuse me? I'll have you know that I was Peppermint Patty's role model.

32} What do you want to know about the future?: Will I be a functioning cripple in five years? Or will I be needing 24/7 /365 care for the rest of my life?

33} Are you wearing perfume or cologne?: Allergic. But I like the smell of either only when it's used properly.

34} Are you due sometime this year for a doctor's visit?: See the links in #29 for answers.

35} Where is your best friend(s)?: Connecticut, Massachusetts, Indiana and Texas.

36} How is your best friend(s)?: Doing fine.

37} Do you have a tan?: Only on my left forearm which perpetually hangs outside the care door. However, I do have a lovely sunburn that encompasses my head.

38} What are you listening to right now?: Incidental music from a video game.

39} Do you collect anything?: Useless factoids about the world around me. Seriously, I collect acquaintances, friends, enemies and trolls. In that order.

40} Who is the biggest gossiper you know?: My daughter. In all seriousness, gossip at my job keeps me employed.

41} Last time you were stopped by a cop or pulled over? June of 2008 when the local constabulary questioned me as to why I was hanging out at the park (my daughter was playing there, thus I was doing daycare).

42} Have you ever drank your soda from a straw?: See #29.

43} What does your last text message say?: Yeah (seriously).

44} Do you like hot sauce?: Yes indeedy doody. The hotter, the better. Faves include anything made by this company and that company.

45} Last time you took a shower? This morning.

46} Do you need to do laundry?: Not until next week.

47} What is your heritage?: Italian, German and English.

48} Are you someone's best friend?: See #35.

49} Are you rich? Only with people.

50} What were you doing at 12a.m. last night? Crawling into bed. By myself.

To all you dads, married or single, and to all you moms who are single, I wish you a Happy Father's Day.


  1. Great answers. Love the tan arm one. Hope you have plenty more trolls than enemies :)Happy Father's Day to you.

  2. Interesting take on life on the mountain there. Happy Father's Day to you!

  3. Septembermom: Thanks. My forearm is really the only place a tan. Everywhere else I just simply burn.

    Glad to see you up and around.

    Joanne: Thanks. This meme was one of the more interesting ones to do, as it gave me the opportunity to use Google for a change.

  4. That could be a scary thing indeed.

  5. #44 - hot sauce. I love Pickapeppa sauce, too! It is my brother-in-law's secret ingredient for bloody marys. I like to put it on black beans and saffron rice. YUM.

    Thank you this glimpse into your life and hope you had a happy fathers day, G.

  6. Hope you had a good Father's Day and I'm still chuckling at the Peppermint Patty answer...

  7. Lynn: You're more than welcome.

    Pickapeppa has milder version as well, which is how I got hooked into it in the first place.

    And my father's day was good. Got some homemade artwork, a pair of work gloves with the Patriots on them and a bag of jelly beans.

    Talon: Thanks. I've always liked Peppermint Patty, because no matter how hard she tried, she always wound up with a D-.

  8. In a nutshell.

    It was a traumatice experience all the way around.

    I wouldn't inflict that kind of pain on my kids, or anyone else's for that matter.

  9. I don't get 42? Are they asking about drinking soda from a CAN through a straw. Because I don't know anyone who hasn't gotten the 7/11 big gulp or the mcdonalds drive through drink and not drank it with a straw.

  10. Granted, #42 is an odd question to ask, but I look at this way: there are some people, such as myself, who are slowly losing the ability to use a straw for drinking, thus they have to imbib the old fashioned way.

    I'm not sure if they meant a can, bottle or cup. It was simply an all purpose question that was left up to the person as to how to interpetate it.


Go on, give me your best shot. I can take it. If I couldn't, I wouldn't have created this wonderful little blog that you decided to grace with your presence today.

About that comment moderation thingy: While yes, it does say up above I can take it, I only use it to prevent the occasional miscreant from leaving thoughtless and/or clueless comments.

So remember, all of your comments are greatly appreciated and all answers will be given that personal touch that you come to expect and enjoy.
