Meming for fun

Soda Chicky was reading the Luther Punk's blog of this meme and said, "Mom, you HAVE to do that!" So here you go, Chicky! Now go do your homework!

4 crushes:
  1. Chris - during much of the latter part of grade school. He was smart and had a cute smile. By the time he might have noticed me, he moved to a different school.

  2. Bruce - during the first half of college. He would call me up to tell me about all the sadness he was having with his long distance girlfriend. I can remember being called after 11:00 midweek, pulling the curlers out of my hair, slapping on makeup, putting on clothes and being ready in under ten minutes so that I could have coffee at Denny's with this guy.

  3. Some tall guy at sem - can't remember his name. Hmmm.... After a disappointing response to a theological question I tossed his way, he became much less attractive.

  4. The husband - after his mother kept throwing us together, he finally caught on.

4 Pieces of Clothing I wish I still owned (and/or that still fit):

  1. Dreamy midnight blue strapless that my sister lent me for the "Senior Prom" at seminary. Also known as "the princess dress". I wish this one still fit. I'm thinking my sister wishes the same thing.

  2. Norwegian cardigan that got lost in transit after internship. Too many boxes. Bad UPS Man. Very bad UPS Man.

  3. Khaki colored two piece dress that was ruined by a dry cleaner in Tiny Town, Missouri. When I pointed out that they had removed all the color from the dress along with the dirt, they asked me if I still wanted the dress. Very strange!

  4. My size 7 1/2 shoes. Mommyhood makes your feet a half size bigger, but I still have some of the shoes. Maybe Soda Chicky can wear them?

4 names I’ve been called at one time or another:

  1. Hildegarde - by my father

  2. HRod - by friends in my high school art department

  3. George - by my mother

  4. Moo-ma - by the Chick
4 Professions I secretly Want to Try:
  1. Florist

  2. World famous novelist

  3. Professor

  4. Sous chef

4 Musicians I’d most want to go on a date with:

  1. Billy Joel - back when we were both younger and cuter. Say 1978.

  2. James Taylor - most any day of the week.

  3. Mozart - when we were both single and alive and I'd need a Babel Fish in my ear because I don't speak German.

  4. Paul Stookey - not for romance but conversation.

4 Foods I’d rather Throw than Eat

  1. Brussel sprouts - they are really nasty. I don't care what my mother-in-law says, they are vile.

  2. Liver

  3. Deviled eggs. Cannot stand the smell!

  4. Mashed yucca. Had it at a restaurant. Very strange stuff.

  5. A runner up: gluten free communion wafers. They are not tasty.

4 Things I Like to Sniff

  1. Snow

  2. The top of Pseudo Grandbaby's head. (With thanks to Luther Punk.) Baby heads are the sweetest things.

  3. Fresh baked bread

  4. Brut after shave. It's a Daddy smell from my childhood.

Oh my goodness!
I think you are my twin.
I love James Taylor, Mozart and Billy Joel.
I say with frightening regularity that I'd like to be a florist.
I have a pseudograndbaby-- his head smells the sweetest, too!!

Thanks for such fun reflections!

Um, I'll take your sprouts. And your liver. And your deviled eggs.
I think I just became your family dog.

Iknew I had a twin somewhere, Jiff!

And Pink Shoes, we'd feed you a better meal than that! I promise.
