Kleptomania

1. Do you like Chinese food?
Yep - mu shu pork with those little pancakes... Oh and chow mein! Yumm!

2. How big is your bed?
I think it's a queen. I don't know for sure - it's TheBoy's bed.

Yes.

4. Laptop or Desktop computer?
Laptop at work - desktop at home.

5. Favorite comedian?
I'll have to go with Bill Engval too.

6. Do you smoke?
Not any more. But I tell you regardless of my health-Nazi-ness, if there were no bad side effects to smoking I'd smoke like a chimney! I love smoking! *sigh* I unfortunately also like living. And living heatlhy.

8. What's the sexiest thing about Condoleeza Rice?
She was a founding board member of the Center for a New Generation, an educational support fund for schools in East Palo Alto and East Menlo Park while serving as Provost at Stanford. Unless you meant physically sexy, in which she case frowns a bit too much for me.

9. Would you rather receive amazing oral seex or have amazing seex?
That's tough. I suppose by "amazing" I can assume I'd, er..., enyoy both of them equally? That never happens for me. But if it did... I'd say amazing seex. It's always better to share the "amazing" right?

10. Sleep with or without clothes on?
With. It annoys TheBoy but I just CAN NOT sleep nekkid.

11. Who sleeps with you every night?
TheBoy and TheCat.

12. Do long distance relationships work?
I think in the short term they can. But it's never an ideal situation.

13. How many times have you been pulled over by the police?
Oh my. Maybe 5 or 6 times. Notably I got pulled over for speeding for the first and second time ever when I was 17 within a week of each other. Also, I got pulled over for a field sobriety test twice in the same evening within an hour of each other and within a half mile of each other.

14. Pancakes or French Toast?
FRENCH TOAST! OMG I want French Toast so badly right now!! It's my favorite decadent breakfast thing! With fresh maple syrup and sausage. Mmmm....

15. Do you like coffee?
It's really more of a "need" than a "like" thing!

16. How do you like your eggs?
Extra dry. If they're scrambled I like them browned on the edges. If they're fried the yolks have to be broken and there can be no jiggling. I'm odd I know it. I like my eggs dry and my steaks bloody.

17. Do you believe in astrology?
Nope.

18. Last person you talked to on the phone?
Business - a banker regarding a referral, personal - TheBoy regarding Thanksgiving.

19. Last person on your missed call list?
My dentist's office.

Low fat string cheese from Trader Joes.

35. Ever do a keg stand?
Sadly yes. I thought I wouldn't have to admit that outside of college or high school though!

36. Craziest place you've slept after a night of drinking?
LOL - I'm not THAT crazy. I'm a sleep at home girl. It doesn't seem to matter how drunk I am, I WILL find my way home to my own bed.

Summer. Hello wakeboarding trips to the lake, camping, beach trips with bon fires, sand volleyball and cold beer on hot hot afternoons!

Faith No More by INXS. I loved the end part where the fish is flopping around and the piano explodes?

39. Pick a movie quote:
"When you fall in love, it is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake, and then it subsides. And when it subsides, you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots are become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the desire to mate every second of the day. It is not lying awake at night imagining that he is kissing every part of your body. No... don't blush. I am telling you some truths. For that is just being in love; which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over, when being in love has burned away. Doesn't sound very exciting, does it? But it is!" - from Captain Corelli's Mandolin.

40. Favorite quote:
"Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be." - Abraham Lincoln.

41. What is your favorite Thirsty Thursday hangout?
Depends on what I am in the mood for - F&A's for a martini, Nola's for sangria or a hurricane, at home with friends for beer and wine.

42. Best friend's name?
Liz and Angie.

43. How long have you known them?
Liz - since college. We had an English class together. I just wanted to make her laugh, loosen her up a bit - I had no idea what I was about to unleash upon the world! Now she's the one making me laugh and getting me to loosen up!
Angie - since... maybe 8th grade? Awhile anyway. Her family were missionaries from our church and they were home on a stop over before they left to Fiji. They never made it to Fiji. And it's a good thing too!

44. Last time you laughed at something stupid?
I'm constantly doing stupid things and laughing at myself! Though lately I haven't done enough laughing... I need to change that.

6:15.

So here we are tonight
You and me together
The storm outside, the fire is bright
And in your eyes I see
What's on my mind
You've got me wild
Turned around inside
And then desire, see, is creeping
Up heavy inside here
And know you feel the same way
I do now
Now let's make this an evening
Lovers for a night, lovers for tonight
Stay here with me, love, tonight
Just for an evening
When we make
Our passion pictures
You and me twist up
Secret creatures
And we'll stay here
Tomorrow go back to being friends

Go back to being friends
But tonight let's be lovers,
We kiss and sweat
We'll turn this better thing
To the best
Of all we can offer, Just a rogue kiss
Tangled tongues and lips,
See me this way
I'm turning and turning for you
Girl just tonight

Float away here with me
An evening just wait and see
But tomorrow go back to your man
I'm back to my world
And we're back to being friends
Wait and see me,
Tonight let's do this thing
All we are is wasting hours until the sun comes up it's all ours
On our way here
Tomorrow go back to being friends

Go back to being friends
Tonight let's be lovers, say you will
And hear me call, soft-spoken whispering love
A thing or two I have to say here
Tonight let's go all the way then
Love I'll see you,
Just for this evening
Let's strip down, trip out at this
One evening starts with a kiss
Run away

And tomorrow
back to being friends
Lovers...love...lovers
Just for tonight, one night...love you
And tomorrow say goodbye

Going to Bella Vista to have a late Thanksgiving with TheBoy's dad and family.

Um... Liz already did it. And I'm sure Kate's doing it. So, maybe Michele? Or maybe Mary will do it and get back into blogging?

I'm definitely doing it. LOL. And excuse me, but I didn't know that I had a mental illness. LOL.

I also like to think there is a "need" and a "purpose" behind my posts as well!
