Getting dressed.

What were you doing 15 minutes ago?
Eating my post-workout yogurt.

Are you any good at math?
I’m not bad. I got a 4 on my AP calculus exam in high school.

Your prom night?
Non-existent. My friend SG had a sleepover with us stagged girls. We ate pasta salad and watched A Room with a View.

Do you have any famous ancestors?
Apparently my grandfather’s family was famous in his tiny Chinese town.

Have you had to take a loan out for school?
Yup. Paid it off in 2005.

Do you know the words to the song on your MySpace profile?
No song. Profile songs are annoying.

Fifth credit card application of the week.

How many different beverages have you had today?
Three: coffee, water, Diet Coke.

Do you ever leave messages on people’s answering machine?
Yes, though few people have answering machinese these days. Most just have voicemail.

Who did you lose your CONCERT virginity to?
Bon Jovi.

Do you draw your name in the sand when you go to the beach?

What’s the most painful dental procedure you’ve had?
Getting my four impacted wisdom teeth pulled at once. After the fact was more painful and chipmunk-like. During was pretty much floating on a nitrous oxide cloud.

What is out your back door?
What back door?

Any plans for Friday night?
Literary reading with PL.

Do you like what the ocean does to your hair?
I love it actually.

Have you ever received one of those big tins of 3 different popcorns?
No, but someone at work always manages to get one as a gift around the holidays, and we all eat from it for days.

Have you ever been to a planetarium?
Yes. Love the planatarium. (Can’t believe R42K has never been!)

Do you re-use towels after you shower?
Yes. What am I, the towel fairy with a big bag of endless clean towels?

Some things you are excited about?
Yummy dinner. Did I mention the workout? I’m starving! What else? Brother’s visit later this month, trip to L.A./Las Vegas next month.

What is your favorite flavor of Jell-O?
Strawberry though I try to refrain from ingesting too much ground up horses’ hooves.

Describe your keychain(s)?
Now it’s just a boring metal key ring, but for a long time I used the Busch Gardens keychain I got when I was 14.

Where do you keep your change? In my wallet.
Quarters for laundry go in a little jar on top of my shoe cabinet. (That’s right: shoe cabinet.)

When was the last time you spoke in front of a large group of people?
Way back in October. I’m speaking in front of about 100 people on Tuesday. Yikes!

What kind of winter coat do you own?
A long fitted coat from Banana Republic that’s plain black on the outside but with a leopard print on the inside. Rowr! Also have a short white Juicy Couture coat with a raccoon collar. Blingbling.

What was the weather like on your graduation day?
High school: it was hot in that gymnasium. College: beautiful and sunny.

Do you sleep with the door to your room open or closed?
Open. My apartment’s probably about the size of a lot of people’s bedrooms. Door closed would be rather claustrophobic.
