Getting to know me, getting to know all about me...

Posted Oct 07 2008 7:07pm

Where were you born? Dublin, Georgia. As they used to say, if you think Dublin's a one-horse town, ask the bridge keeper.
How old are you? Old enough that I don't want to is a good enough reason not to.
What's the best advice you ever got? Always do the next best thing.
How tall are you?
Not very.
Can you drive? What kind of car do you have?
Yes, a Honda.
Do you speak any foreign languages?
Enough to get myself in deep, deep trouble.
What are your hobbies?
Knitting. Buying yarn. Visiting. Talking. Photography. Reading. Riding around looking at things. Watching people. Knowing more than that person over there. Throwing myself into things. Starting projects. Eavesdropping in stores and restaurants. Painting the bathroom. Hanging out. Going places I haven't been. Piling up pieces of paper.  All of those things, but not necessarily in that order.
Are you ever going to finish college?
No, and don't tell my parents. But I also promise not to take tap lessons again, either.
Do you have children? Yes, but they belong to other people. I return them to their parents after I've indulged them wildly and let them stay up till all hours. I keep their secrets and teach them to drive and promise that I'll love them even when they're being horrid little twerps.
Why are you still single?
Because I am particular. And contrary.
What are your requirements for a man?
He must be capable of driving a stick shift automobile. Any man who is near my age and cannot drive a car with a manual transmission has something missing in his hometraining.
Do you have any food quirks, and what are they?
Oh, heavens yes. Onions make me throw up. Most everything else I don't eat is because of the texture. Except for the butt-end of hot dogs, which I don't eat because when I was at 4-H camp in 6th grade, one got away from me and I nearly choked to death. And filled foods, because I don't like surprises. And cole slaw, because I am from South Georgia, and I don't care who you are, your cole slaw is not different and I won't like it. I also don't like root vegetables on general principle, except for sweet potatoes.
What are your redeeming qualities?
I'm kind. And funny. And pragmatic. And loyal. I am a Decent Person. And I don't panic in the heat of the moment. I don't pack more than I can tote. I will just suck it up. Children, dogs, and old people tend to like me. And I manage to keep my shirts remarkably unwrinkled all day long.
Can you sing?
No, but that never stops me.
What do you believe more than anything else?
That I'm going to be okay.
What are your pet peeves?
People who don't turn into the lane closest. Inconsiderate people. Too much protective wrapping. Poor subject/verb agreement.
Have any of your parents' predictions come true?
Yes, this one: That mouth's going to get you in trouble one of these days.
What are you going to do for your next trick?
Keep on keepin' on.
