the meme that never ends

i didn’t realize that i hadn’t updated this one for two months! i guess i’ve been spending all my time over on the other one. so i went over to my usual source of these memes, tenseteacher, and found new memes. it’s funny there are ones called “chatty meme”s because i just updated my status not too long ago as feeling very chatty. i don’t know what it is. and i guess it’s obvious because look how much i’ve written just to say, wow, it’s been a while. sheesh. anyway, here’s one that promises it will never end, but thankfully, does.

Where did you take your profile pic?
i took it with my isight camera in photo booth and then used the “pop art” effect, and then used appleworks to trim it down to just one square. man, of all the applications i thought i’d never use on my computer, i’m loving photo booth a lot! it’s such a blast to distort yourself.

What exactly are you wearing right now?
exactly? hmm. i’m wearing a pink t-shirt with eeyore on it. it also has lots of hearts on it. very girly. is that exact enough?

What is your current problem?
what isn’t my current problem? sheesh. oh, i know. work. 😀 ah, i’ll be hating that come a month from today.

What makes you happy most?
not having to go to work 🙂 and being with the family. i would also be most happy if i can get my house cleaned up and then enjoy a nice big steak. oh gosh, i just made myself hungry.

What’s the name of the song that you’re listening to?
the song in my head right now doesn’t have a name as i just made it up…”i want some steak / nice, juicy steak / won’t somebody grill me a steak right now?”

Any celebrity you would marry?
ohhhhhh yeeeeeesss 🙂 he’s already married, though. bum.

Name someone with the same birthday as you.
i know 3 other people who were born on my exact same birth day. i wonder if we were all in the hospital together–probably, right? it’s a small island. oh, but i think one was born in okinawa because her family was military. but it’s neat how we all ended up attending the same school years later. 3 of us! and we were all girls. what are the odds?

Have you ever sung in front of a large audience?
yes. on tv, too, in fact. or well, i guess i more mouthed the words than anything! 😉 hmm…but by myself in front of people? does in front of my class count? i guess they’re not large. oh, i did have to sing with my kids once at a parent meeting and then my kids decided to clam up and left me singing there all alone!!! that was embarrassing. i kept looking at them like uhhh?? hello?? they just got the major stage fright and stopped singing and left me there strumming my ‘ukulele and singing by myself. eeeesh. oh, and we’ve had to sing for hula, too. so, uh, yeah.

Has anyone ever said you looked like a celebrity?
nope. “celebrity” implies that person is famous, and a famous person would not look like me.

Do you speak any other languages?
a couple.

Has anyone you’ve been really close with passed away?
no, thankfully. yet i’ve taken their passings very hard, so i am really afraid of how i would take the passing of someone i’m close with. i’d be so torn up. 😦

Do you ever watch MTV?
hello? i grew up on that thing! i watched it so much i could probably identify any music video that came from the ’80s. i haven’t watched it though, in years…ever since they stopped playing music videos and only did reality shows. it’s no longer MUSIC television.
