Getting to know you, part 2
« on: May 31, 2007, 12:34:25 pm »
Hello everyone!

This is a survey I've posted on the DC Forum some time ago, and got good responce to it.  So I figured, cut-n-paste, and now it's here.

It's 40 questions long, and I noted that someone asked for shorter surveys, so I split in two.

Here's the second half.




21) Bad habit: Biting my nails

22) Hidden stash of adult material: Oh yes. LOL

23) Best halloween costume: I once dressed like Budman from the Budweiser ads.

24) Favorite Magazine: The Advocate

25) Favorite smells: new car.....new baby

26) Favorite sounds: laughter

27) Worst feeling in the world: Being alone and depressed

28) 1st thing you think of when I wake up: Ohhhh here we go.

29) Favorite color: Green or purple

30) Future child's names & why: male or female: Charisma/girl, Aidan/boy....I love different names.

31) important thing in life: If something is not meant to be, accept it and move on.  Lingering on it will not make it better.

32) Favorite foods: Boneless Buffalo Chicken

33) Storms; cool or scary? Definitely Cool

34) first car: 1970 Dodge Duster.

35) 1 person I would want to meet-dead or alive: Jesus

36) My dream job: I still haven't figured that out.

37) Ever been in love: yes, it was a great experience

38) Glass 1/2 empty or full: Half full!!! Be positive!

39) Favorite sport to watch: Figure Skating!

40) Tell an embarrasing story about myself: One time, when I was camping with my friends, I was walking with a tray of junk food to the picnic table, and the laces of my left boot got hooked on the eye-hooks of my right boot and I tripped and belly flopped into the dirt with my face landing in all the food on the tray.


Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!

30) Future child's names & why: Can't think of another boy's name I like as much as my son's (Will).  We always said if we ever had a girl, we'd name her Emma or Emily, and if we had another boy, we'd name him Eli.  It's funny - Will and Eli, of all names, are the only boys' names my husband and I both like.

No more beans!

Well, lets just say it was a sit down job. I wasn't about to put my sweet ass in that so I was squatting, trying to hold the door closed, balance myself and do my business. Some drunk came up and started pulling on the door. I kept yelling "OCCUPIED" but his ears musta been drunk too. He gave a good yank and I couldn't hold the door any more. SO, there i was squatting showing all my business to everyone waiting in line.
Not to brag but i got lots of phone numbers after that!  :laugh:
