Random Dozen

1. Define a great relationship.

A great relationship takes lots of work from both parties. Trust and openness, honesty, integrity and friendship are qualities that a relationship must be built on. A great relationship occurs when each spouse constantly considers the other person before themself. It is selfless.

Wow, that sounds like an answer to a test question in an Interpersonal Communications course. Sorry for the rigidity, but I truly believe all of that, and I work to keep my relationship on that foundation.

2. Why is it called a drive-thru if you have to stop? (Real question: What was the last food/drink you purchased at a drive-thru?)

I have this awesome mental picture of a car zooming by a drive-thru window, the customer chucking loose change at the window and the employee throwing handsful of fries at the car. A paper cup of soda ricochets off of the windshield, leaving a sticky trail of syrup and ice cubes and ketchup splats against the car door.

But really, what was the last drive thru meal I had? Last week or the week before I grabbed an Egg McMuffin and orange juice at McDonald's for breakfast. I've been trying to avoid the whole drive thru thing...

3. What is your favorite breed of dog?

I'm not exactly a dog lover. I'm not a dog hater, either, but I've never had one, so I guess I don't see the hype. However, someday when we have some space, and when we're actually home enough to take care of a dog, I wouldn't mind getting one.

I'd love to rescue a greyhound, or to have a whippet, but my favorite has got to be the Rottweiler. I fricking love those things and their adorable smooshie faces. But, as Paul has vetoed every last one of those breeds (insert pouty-face here), I guess I wouldn't mind having the bulldog that he wants. Just as long as it isn't some nasty, yippy little chihuaua, or anything that ends in 'poo.' I prefer dogs that can't be carried in a purse.

Side note: Whatever happened to mutts? Why can't you just get a good mutt anymore?

4. If you had to move to a state besides the one you currently live in, where would you move?

I really love Washington. I mean, I love it. So I'd hate to move. That's one huge reason why I'm glad Paul is in the guard. But if we had to move, I guess I wouldn't mind going to Colorado, or maybe the east coast--like Maine or Rhode Island or something. I've never been to either of those places, so I just don't know.

5. If you could change anything about the way you were raised, what would it be?

I think my parents did a good job! I mean, I turned out great, right? Though I can't vouch for my sisters... I kid, I kid.

If I could change anything, I would probably have them send me to public school at least for high school. Sorry to beat a dead mule, Mom. I did okay :) (and I just tried to find a photo of our fan-freaking-tastic uniforms, but no one is brave/dumb enough to post one on facebook and mine are all at home)

6. Who is the funniest person you know?

I can't name one person, but nothing is funnier than Paul, Chris and Chubz when they're on a roll.

7. Did you get enough sleep last night?

Theoretically I did, but enough sleep is never enough for me. I live in the land of Nod.

8. What's the first thing you thought of this morning?

How the crap am I going to roll over and get out of bed? I'm stuck. Might as well hit snooze. Obviously I got out of bed eventually, but it huuuuuuurt.

9. Grilled or fried? --HONESTLY

Fried, duh. But I do love grilled veggies, too!

10. Are you afraid of the dark?

Not so much anymore. Well, not indoors anyways. I still get a little panicky when I'm outside in the dark. But at least I no longer have to do the running leap into bed so the creature beneath it doesn't grab my ankles!

11. When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

A mom. That's about all.

12. If you had to choose one word to describe yourself, what would you choose?

I like it. It's like I just interviewed you, and I didn't even have to think up my own questions.

Heather said...

Lol! I ripped it off of someone's blog. I've been doing a lot of ripping off lately.

Remind me to round-house you in the neck for that picture.

I was complimenting your sense of humor...and that was the funniest thing I could find!
Don't six people read this, and five of them were at the pirate party.

Erica said...

So does that make me the sixth person? LOL!

Maine is just like WA, except more extreme weather. The leaves change colors in the fall (which is my fave season there), winter has a butt ton of snow, spring feels like t-shirt weather after winter, and summer is hot!

Someday you can fly back with me and visit :)
