Forty-Eight Questions

A friend sent me this list in the hopes that I would post it on my blog.  So here goes...

1. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE?
Nope.  Amy was a popular name in the early '70's.  The best part about my name - Being introduced to people and having them serenade me with the song "Aime" by Pure Prairie League.
2. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED?
I got all teary eyed watching a movie the other night (see #32). 
3. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING?
You know what?  I really do.  It's not particularly neat, but it's unique.
4. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH MEAT?
I don't eat a ton of lunch meat but my favorite is pastrami.
5. DO YOU HAVE KIDS?
Yep.  One.
6. IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON, WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU?
Of course.  I'm just that wonderful.
7. DO YOU USE SARCASM A LOT?
Never.  
8. DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS?
Yes.
9. WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP?
I did.  Once about 15 years ago.  I'm not sure what possessed me to do it because I am terrified of heights.  I would never, ever do it again.  Ever.
10. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CEREAL?
Plain old bran flakes + banana.  I can't do Raisin Bran because it contains raisins.  Yuck!
11. DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF?
Never.

Baskin Robbins Chocolate and Peanut Butter.

Red.
16. WHAT IS THE LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT YOURSELF?
I'm pretty laid back, but I hate the way I let my feisty guys get under my skin.

I will admit. Your answer to #7 made me snort I laughed so hard. Ok, I didn't really snort, but had water been in my mouth, I would have spit it out. I am doing this on my blog. Mainly because I want to be like you.
