sunday stealing: birds are chirping meme

Birds Are Chirping Meme

Name a product you buy mostly because it has a cool package.
hmm. i don’t know that it’s cooler, but i like the blue-tinted water bottles better. i don’t know why. i just do.

What flavor cake do you like for your birthday?
i don’t care for cake. i wouldn’t turn down a mudpie though.

Have you ever been in love with someone much older or younger than you?
i was in a relationship with someone much older … i don’t know how much of it was “love” as it was a control thing on his end and a wanting-to-be-in-a-relationship thing on my end … but yeah. he was the same age as my mom. :/ not something i’m proud of, and something i try very hard to forget. and i’ve never been with anyone much younger…that just creeps me out. i think 3 years was the most of an age gap in the younger range.

Have you ever had a job you loved?
yes! while i was in college, i was a research assistant in the language department, and i loved it! i got to hole myself up in the library’s microfiche room and do research there, i’d get to “play” on the computers, formatting the information i found into easily readable text/newsletters, i got to transcribe videos, and i tutored anyone that needed quick help with the language. it was a whole smorgasbord of responsibilities so i never got bored, and it was in a topic that i was passionate about. i wish i had that job for life, and not just it being a job for college students.

Have you ever been in a building that was on fire?
no, but i’ve been in buildings where fire alarms were pulled and we were in the process of evacuating (from the 23rd floor) when we were told it was a false alarm and we had to walk back up. i’ve also been in buildings where people would call in bomb threats to avoid taking finals, and we’d have to evacuate the building and wait outside while they searched for the never-once-existed bomb. i hated that!

Are you in an argument with anyone right now?
no, i don’t think so.

Would you change your hair color to something outrageous if you would get paid to?
hmm. depends on the price.

Have you ever written a poem for someone?
yes, i have.

What is a place you’ve vacationed at and would like to go back to?
all of the outer islands i’ve been to, i’d love to go back to again. we only usually get to spend a day or two there; i’d like to be able to spend longer.

Do you eat samples at the grocery store?
once in a while, if it’s something i want to try. my son takes every single one, though.

What do you absolutely have to have to make your birthday feel special?
family.

What’s the last tourist area you visited?
i went on a multi-city trip this past summer and went to all the touristy areas. but the latest was on this island for a workshop i attended in the heart of tourist central.

Where do you go out to eat for a special occasion?
we used to always go to stuart anderson’s when we were younger, but i think i last ate there a few years ago. we used to always go to sizzler as well but those are all closed down here 😦 right now it’s usually chilis that we go to, since my son loves the baby back ribs.

When was the last time you went to a post office?
i was going every month last year because i subscribed to these boxes, which for some reason they wouldn’t deliver to my door, so i had to pick them up from the post office. but i stopped those earlier this year, so i guess…february? or march.

Is there an item you are saving up to buy right now?
yes. i want to get the new iPhone when it comes out. i still have the 4S, and everyone teases me about it, but i just haven’t had the money to get any of the newer ones. but i need to get a new one because not only do i feel my phone will be phased out soon, but it keeps crashing on me since its storage is up to capacity already.

Are you psychic in any way?
no, although sometimes i dream of things, and then they really happen. but that’s just happened with a handful of the thousands of dreams i have.

Do you prefer a laptop or desktop? Which are you on now?
i prefer the laptop, which i what i’m on now.

Have you ever received a gift and truly did not know what it was?
yes. i received one of those hook for your purses that i had no idea what it was when i opened it, but a week later when i was the person who gave it to me, she whipped hers out and used it, and i was like ohhhhhhhhhhhh. 😛

What’s your homepage?
i don’t have one–it just shows me a screen of all my most-visited sites, so i can just click on whichever one i want so i don’t have to type it in.

Is there a thing you enjoy doing, but quit because you are not good at it?
most things! 😛 like i think i would be more productive in the knitting area if i was better at it. most of my crafts are like that.

  1. I always thought that about blue bottled water too. I’m sure that I pay more for it too.

    • yeah, some of them are a bit more expensive, but for some reason at 7-11, the blue bottled waters are the cheapest, so that’s my usual stop 😛 i don’t know, it just tastes better in a blue bottle, or something!

  2. I was so glad to see your comment on my post! I haven’t “seen” you on Sundays for a while. Maybe it’s just been me being in a rush on Sundays or something. Anyway…I’ve missed ya!

    • yeah the first half of this year was just a blur, so many things going on! but things seemed to have slowed down a little which allowed me to go visit my favorite blogs again 🙂 i missed y’all so! 🙂

  3. Pies for birthdays sound very delicious! And a purse hook. hmmm. Now I’ll have to google it. See what you started? *winks*

    • hahaha the one i got was just plain ol’ hook. it was when that thing first came out. now they’re all fancy looking with cute designs and all customizable and stuff! 🙂
