Really Reaching Here...

A kickback to the myspace days, if only to hold your attention while I think of something truly creative. Hold your attention but please don't hold your breath.

1. Were you named after anyone? Who?
No, I was named Heather because my mom and dad couldn't agree on how to spell Rebecca/Rebekah. Or...maybe that was their argument for Sarah's name. I don't remember. Either way, if I was a boy I would have been David. I'm very glad I'm not a boy--not because I don't like the name, but because I enjoy being a girl!

2. When was the last time you cried? Why?
Awkward... Yesterday I cried at work because Mel decided he needed to tell me how to live my life and that pissed me off. Mostly because it came from Mel. (Yes, Dad. That Mel.) I did get my parting shots by standing in the doorway, mid-storm off, and announcing (with tremulous voice and bright red face) that I hoped I never became as callous and jaded as all three of my co-workers. Then I fled to the ladies room followed by Tiffany's office to lose myself in a storm of angry tears. Me? Emotional? No....

3. What was your last sandwich filling?
I'm not a big sandwich eater--not because I don't like them, but because I seldom remember to eat them. Having said that, I think that I did have a ham (left over from a spiral ham I cooked...Paul and his ham...) and cheese sandwich last week. Lunch meat creeps me out, and I avoid it as much as possible (until I forget to avoid it). The thought of meat byproducts being torn apart and squished back together with a bucket of salt does not sound appetizing to me. However, I have no qualms about eating hotdogs with relish (the emotion, not the pickle product. Unless it's a Wildcat Dog. Then yes, with the pickle product, too.)

4. Do you have pets? What?
Yes. Sigh...
Boris and Natasha, although if you asked them, they'd say "Yes, we have pets! Paul and Heather. They sleep in our bed sometimes." 

And Mr. Sister, my lovely ball python. Although sometimes I forget that I have him. I have an alarm set on my phone to remember to feed him. Poor kid... Also, he's a girl...

5. If you were another person, would you be friends with you?
Totally. I'm nice.

6. Do you use sarcasm?
Your mom uses sarcasm.

7. Do you still have your tonsils?
Yes, barely. I'm too chicken to have them out, even after four consecutive bouts of antibiotic-resistant strep throat. That summer sucked...

8. What is your favorite cereal?
Oatmeal with raisins, pecans and brown sugar. Or Cinnamon Toast Crunch if I'm lazy (which I totally am). Or Strawberry Special K if I'm feeling fat (which I totally am.)

9. Do you think you are strong?
Stronger than you'll probably ever know. But fragile, too.

10. What is your favorite ice cream?
Triple berry cheesecake from Cold Stone. Or pretty much anything without marshmallows. Only crazy people like marshmallows in their ice cream--(yes, you, crazy person!)

11. Red or white wine?
As I am lacking the refinement to truly know anything about wine, I just drink whatever Mom pours into my glass. But I'm partial to white. Or pink if I'm feeling unsophisticated.
And by pink I mean blush.

12. What is your least favorite thing about you?
I am lazy and unmotivated and it drives me crazy. I would change this about myself, but I'm just too lazy! For example, there are towels in the dryer that have been there since Saturday... But in my defense, No, there's just no excuse.

13. What do you miss?
My six minute commute to work. This 30 minute drive thing (plus ten minutes to walk in on some days) is making me crazy.
Also my mom.

14. What was the last thing you ate?
I made steak fajitas last night. It takes all of my willpower to say that word with a soft 'j' and a short 'i.' Say it with me.... Fajiiiiiiiiiitas.

15. What are you listening to?
Whatever it is, I'm sure I've heard it five to six times in the last 24 hours. KJR doesn't have the most diverse playlist, and Gloria refuses to change the station. Well, not that she refuses... I'm just afraid to ask.

16. If you were a crayon, what color would you be?
I would lay claim to all 64 colors. A little bit of everything to brighten everyone's day.
Or black.

17. Your favorite smells?
The ocean and Paul's neck and lavender and fresh cotton candles and patchouli and bakeries and coffee and warm hay and saddles and a million other things. Just not vanilla.

18. Your favorite dessert?
Lavender cheescake!

19. What book are you currently reading?
The Time Traveler's Wife, Gone with the Wind and Effective Human Relations

20. What's the farthest you've ever been away from home?

Thanks for muddling through! Now pick a few questions and answer them in the comments for yourself.

I love reading people's surveys for some odd reason. It makes me think I know more about them than I do. I'm following your instructions and answering a few myself :)

4. Do you have pets? What?
Yup, as you know, I have 3 cats. 3 very cool cats. Hintza, the massive 18 pound beast that's better than a guard dog! Bella, the black cat that's so shy, but when you earn her trust, she's the most cuddly cat ever. She thinks she's a dog and will flop on her back for belly rubs. And Cynder, the tiny kisser that likes to compete in staring contests.

6. Do you use sarcasm?
HA! Some say I'm too sarcastic. I'm quite the smarta*s and I enjoy being that way. It's part of who I am.

10. What is your favorite ice cream?
Definitely Haggen Daaz Coffee! I've loved it since I was a kid because of my mom and I've totally passed the love on to my son!

16. If you were a crayon, what color would you be?
CURLEAN! It's my favorite crayon in the box! It's so pretty, bright and dark at the same time! I could look at it all day!

There you go, a few things about me :) And by the way, you're slacking on the photos! I expect to see more by the end of the week!! ;)

I know I know. I'm kind of in a...pit? Rut? Mariana Trench? I'll kick my own butt and get it going again.

#9 Gardenia. That's you. Strong and fragile.

#20 I've been away from home for 34 years. Home is where my mom and dad are. I miss them all the time, every day. (I'm making me cry!)
