50 Randoms

What curse word do you use the most?
Do you own an iPod?
A nano I got from my boyfriend last Christmas.
Who on your MySpace “Top 8” do you talk to the most?
I “don’t do” MySpace. We can’t get on it from work, and I’m really just not interested.
What time is your alarm clock set for?
6:30 (but ask me what time I get out of bed)
What color is your room?
Flip flops or sneakers?
Would you rather take the picture or be in the picture?
Take it.
What was the last movie you watched?
Superman Returns on the big screen, half of Lara Croft, Tomb Raider on the small screen
Do any of your friends have children?
Yes, many. And the rest (who are married, that is) are trying.
Has anyone ever called you lazy?
Do you ever take medication to help you fall asleep faster?
Tylenol PM, or Nyquil, but it’s been a long time,
What CD is currently in your CD player?
This morning’s iPod playlist? “In Love.”
Do you prefer regular or chocolate milk?
Regular. 2% preferably.
Has anyone told you a secret this week?
No, and I’m glad – I’ve got enough of my own “secrets” to keep.
Have you ever given someone a hickey?
No. I’ll go with Alison on this one, who said she didn’t think she has the “hoovering capability” to do so.
Who was the last person to call you?
Liz, to say she was going to be at my house early for the fireworks.
Do you think people talk about you behind your back?
Yes – I’m pretty sure I’m annoying enough at times that others need to complain about me, and wonderful enough at other times that people need to brag about me.
Did you watch cartoons as a child?
We watched a lot of PBS, though Saturday morning cartoons were allowed. Smurfs is the one I can remember.
How many siblings do you have?
One sister, 2 years younger, married, child on the way, reason for Mom moving up here in 2 weeks.
Are you shy around the opposite sex?
Not as much as I used to be – for a while there I had practically no interaction with them (“them” being single guys my age), so I was really at a loss for what to say or how to act. I think I’ve re-learned that, though.
What movie do you know every line to?
“You’ve Got Mail” for starters.
Do you own any band t-shirts?
A few. Newsboys and Bob Dylan being the ones I can think of. But maybe Dylan got ruined – not sure I still have it. I got it because it was long-sleeved and had stars down the left arm (and it was cheaper than the Paul Simon ones at the same concert, and they were dorky polo shirts). [Editor’s note: today I am wearing a polo shirt. I have lots in my closet. They’re not really dorky. But for a concert shirt, I think they’re the epitome of dorkiness. Feel free to argue this point in the comments.]
What is your favorite salad dressing?
Ranch. Hidden valley, made at home the way Mom did.
Do you read for fun?
Yes, though I just finished the book I was reading and haven’t decided what to start next.
Do you cry a lot?
No, but I talked about this last week.
Who was the last person to text message you?
Prince Charming, who is actually the only person to text message me (other than American Airlines or Northwest). Ready for some sappy cheesy love gooey-ness? We got off the phone at like 11:30 and I’d forgotten to say “I love you,” so I texted it to him, so he quick wrote me back.
Do you have a desktop computer or a laptop?
Desktop that’s waaaaay behind the times, but it was free, so I can’t complain that much.
Are you currently wanting any piercings or tattoos?
No, I think I’ve moved past that phase of my life.
What is the weather like?
Perfect. Warm, but not too warm. Nice breeze. Sunny.
Would you ever date someone covered in tattoos?
I don’t think so, but I don’t want to be completely prejudiced about that. I’d probably need some… background information, or an explanation.
Is sex before marriage wrong?
As far as I’m concerned, yes. But if you’re part of the majority of Americans who’ve participated in this as-I-understand-it enjoyable activity, I’m not judging you. It’s a decision we’ve all gotta make. Morally, as far as Christianity goes, it’s black and white.
When was the last time you slept on the floor?
I think that would have to be sometime last spring when I was still working at the church and we had an overnight, but I can’t remember any specifics.
How many hours of sleep do you need to function?
Seven, eight to nine are preferred.
Are you in love or lust?
Both! (Though I had to look up the dictionary definition of “lust” to make sure – you could really go wrong there.)
Are your days full and fast-paced?
No, not really. There are spells at work where I’m busy for a few days or weeks at a time, but they’re few and far between. I’m guessing that once I start school, this answer will change.
Do you pay attention to calories on the back of packages?
No. I couldn’t care less.
How old will you be turning on your next birthday?
28. Just like this year.
Are you picky about spelling and grammar?
Yes, but I try to not be annoying about it.
Have you ever been to Six Flags?
Great America and Midwest America. The former was great, the latter sucked.
Do you get along better with the same or opposite sex?
I plead the 5th.
Do you like cottage cheese?
Do you sleep on your side, tummy, or back?
Mostly tummy and side.
Have you ever bid for something on eBay?
All the time. I’m so bad.
Do you enjoy giving hugs?
Yes, but I don’t give them out freely. (I’m not a “hugger,” as some people would call themselves.)
What song did you last sing out loud?
“Give Me One Reason” by Tracy Chapman, while Prince Charming was carting stuff between the car and his kitchen.
What is your favorite TV show?
Do I have to pick one? There are so many!!!
Which celebrity, dead or alive, would you want to have lunch with?
I hate this question. Today I’m going to say… Debra Messing, just so I can tell her how awesome she is to be in Hollywood and be flat-chested and have big red curly hair. (You can see why I might appreciate that, right?)
Last time you had butterflies in your stomach?
I don’t know. Well, I was nervous last Thursday because Prince Charming was coming over so we could talk about important stuff.
What one thing do you wish you had?
A margarita. (Yes, I know it’s only 10:30 and I’m a state employee, so it’s definitely not going to happen. A girl can dream, right?)
Favorite lyrics?

These words are my own, from my heart flow
I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you
There’s no other way to better say
I love you, I love you

-Natasha Bedingfield
