Saturday Night Genealogy Fun: The Facebook Meme

saturday_night_genealogy_fun

Randy Seaver of Genea-Musings offers us the following challenge:

For this week’s mission (should you decide to accept it), I want you to:

1)  Using the Facebook “Learn About Each Other” meme being passed around this week, answer the 31 questions as listed below.

2)  Tell us in a blog post of your own, in a comment to this blog post, in a status line on Facebook or a stream post on Google Plus.  Be sure to leave a link to your post in Comments on this post.

Here are the questions.  My answers are in green.

  1. Who are you named after?

My daddy’s paternal grandmother Annie Black Gunter and her sister Suzie Black Skelton.

  1. Last time you cried?

Thanks to this stage of life, it is a daily occurrence.

  1. Do you like your handwriting?

No, not anymore. Thanks to years of typing, my handwriting has gotten terribly bad.

  1. What is your favorite lunch meat?

Mesquite roasted turkey

  1.  Spicy or sweet?

I like both!

  1. Longest relationship?

I imagine at this point my mother and my Aunt Carolyn would win the prize. We’ve known each other for 51.5 years.

  1. Do you still have your tonsils?

No. They were removed during Christmas vacation the year that I turned 16.

  1. Would you bungee jump?

I think it would be a fun adventure, but also one that I would have to pass on.

  1. What is your favorite kind of cereal?

Peanut Butter Captain Crunch for cold cereal.  Oatmeal with brown sugar and syrup wins for hot cereal.

  1. Do you untie your shoes when you take them off?

No. I wear sandals and they just slide off and on.

  1. Do you think you’re strong?

I used to be referred to as Hercules. I was pretty strong when I was young.  At 16 years old, 99 pounds, I could leg press over 700 pounds.  Now, I struggle to lift a gallon of milk, thanks to anemia.  Emotionally, the answer would have to be no. Everything makes me cry. I have always been a very sensitive, or tender-hearted, person.

  1. Favorite ice cream?

Blue Bell’s Dutch Chocolate!

  1. What is the first thing you notice about a person?

Eyes are generally the first thing that I notice about a person.

  1. Football or baseball?

Neither. I am not a sports fan.

  1. What color pants are you wearing?

Black.

  1. Last thing you ate?

Popcorn.

  1. What are you listening to?

The hum of this room. It is the loudest room in the house.

  1. If you were a crayon, what color would you be?

I would be either red or black. Those are two of my favorite colors.

  1. What is your Favorite Smell?

There are so many wonderful smells that I can’t pin down a favorite, so I’ll go with one of the first that came to mind: freshly mowed grass.

  1. Who was the last person you talked to on the phone?

Our youngest daughter.

  1.  Are you married?

Yes. David and I have been married for just over 32 years.

  1. Hair color?

Though it is very gray now, it used to be auburn.

  1. Eye color?

Brown with gold flecks.

  1. Favorite foods to eat?

Shrimp and cheesecake and Blue Bell Dutch Chocolate Ice Cream.

  1. Scary movies or happy endings?

At this point in my life, I would have to say happy endings. But there was a time that I loved a good horror movie!

  1. Last movie you watched?

Swan Princess Royally Undercover.

27.What color shirt are you wearing?

Yellow with little pinkish flowers scattered around it.

  1. What is your favorite holiday?

It used to be Thanksgiving. I don’t have a favorite holiday anymore.

  1. Beer or Wine?

Neither. I do not drink. When I did, many years ago, vodka was my poison of choice.

  1. Night owl or morning person?

I am a night owl through and through.  I do my best thinking and writing at night.

  1. Favorite day of the week?

They are all the same to me.  We are retired. We do what we want, when we want, for the most part.

    1. Thank you, Ellen. Please don’t be sad. I will be okay. It is mostly hormones adjusting to this stage of life, though there is some depression in there, too. I have not adjusted well to this empty nest idea. I will come around eventually. Thank you for your kindness. Have a blessed weekend. 🙂
