Skipper’s E-Mail

Skipper sent me this e-mail last night … and I decided I’d post my answers here. The instructions I received were as follows:

I’ve done these before… but this one is a little bit different. Please DO this and send it back. It isn’t hard, and it’s great when you start to get people’s answers back. Okay, here’s what you’re supposed to do…and try not to be LAME and spoil the fun.

Copy (not forward) this entire e-mail and paste it onto a new e-mail that you will send. Change all of the answers so that they apply to you. Then, send this to a whole bunch of people you know *INCLUDING* the person who sent it to you. The theory is that you will learn a lot of little known facts about your friends. It is fun and easy. Remember to send it back to the person who sent it to you!

1. WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING? The Art of Cross-Examination, Francis L. Wellman. Slander, Ann Coulter. The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Douglas Adams.

2. WHAT’S ON YOUR MOUSE PAD? Nothing, it’s just blue.

9. FUTURE CHILD’S NAME? I haven’t anything I’m really hooked on using … for a boy I would consider a namesake of some sort, my husband/the father’s name, a grandfather’s name, close family member or friend … it’s a question that makes me laugh, I had always taken the position that if I ever was fortunate enough to have children, I would defer to whatever my wife really, really wanted. Hmmmmm … I guess I better come up with some names I like !! 🙂

15. SLEEP WITH A STUFFED ANIMAL? I’m sort of having brain freeze here … I’ve got a half-dozen somewhat sexual, boy and Hottie references to toss out here … but instead, I think I’ll simply say … no. My puppy Leia used to jump up and sleep with me at some point in the middle of the night, but other than that … I’ve been a solo sleeper for a long, long time … I mean, there’s only so much room in my recliner !! 🙂

19. FAVORITE ALCOHOLIC DRINK? Bud Light, but I’ve really been fad and into Michelob Ultras lately. Though … I usually drink Coors Light because that’s what Singer and Hottie drink and I usually mooch off them.

21. DO YOU EAT THE STEMS OF BROCCOLI? Of course, what are you, a phreak?

22. IF YOU COULD HAVE ANY JOB YOU WANTED WHAT WOULD IT BE? A stay at home mom raising my kids and occasionally getting on my husband’s nerves, but making him laugh and smile silly just at the right times. Until that develops, I’m angling for the college professor thing … I’d be great !! 🙂 I used to want to be POTUS (President of The United States), then a judge … but my interests have changed.

Hmmmm … I like so many movies, it’s really hard to say … I guess I’ll go with Star Wars – A New Hope … or maybe The Matrix … possibly A Few Good Men … then of course there’s Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade … though if I had to pick just one movie that I would be able to watch only for one month … I’d go with Monty Python and The Holy Grail.

40. WHERE’S YOUR LEAST FAVORITE PLACE TO BE? My old law firm … commonly known as The Death Star.

41. WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE PLACE TO BE MASSAGED? Lying on my stomach while I’m watching television in my fort … oh, you don’t mean physical locatioooon? Well … in that case I’ll say … my neck. I love neck rubs. At least I think I do … it’s been so long since I’ve had one … Sister will give me one every now and then at bwowling … but generally speaking, my neck rubs are too few and far between.

42. WHAT’S MOST IMPORTANT, STRONG IN MIND OR STRONG IN BODY? Strong in Mind. Bulk and physical strength is grossly overvalued.

43. What’s YOUR FAVORITE KITCHEN ITEM? Heck, I don’t know … the kitchen table ?? 😉

44. WHAT MAKES YOU REALLY ANGRY? Just thinking about my former law firm and how they treated Singer pisses me off to this day … though as a general rule … it’s the same basic things … hypocrits, bigots and people who are mean.

45. WHICH DO YOU PREFER, SPORTS CAR OR SUV? Do I have to pick one? I’ll go with the sports car … I certainly won’t drive it fast or anything, but I’ll look better in a sports car than in an SUV.

46. DO YOU BELIEVE IN AFTERLIFE? Yes, obviously. They keep sending my back here … bastards.

47. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SEASON? Fall.

48. IF YOU COULD HAVE ONE SUPER POWER, WHAT WOULD IT BE? Well, I really don’t call it a super power, but I can sense time lines … which though is sometimes very, very intrusive … is pretty kewl in its own right. But if I was going to add a “super power” to my list of skills … I’d go with flying.

55. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE MEAL? It used to be lunch when we (The UnUsual Suspects) used to always meet up … but we’re not able to do that much at all anymore … so I’d go with dinner . As far as particular meals … my all-time favorites are hamburger and fries, chicken noodle soup, stuffed green peppers and fried fish.

56. IF YOU COULD TAKE A VACATION ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD WHERE WOULD IT BE? A cruise with The UnUsual Suspects on the Pacific side of things … hit Mexico and then Hawaii … spend some time at a few all inclusives along the way, where the significant others of The UnUsual Suspects, My Hobbits and The Others would meet up with us for a while.

  1. ROFL I was actually thinking of answering it that way Yodette , because with the joys of spironolactone … I rarely can go a full night without having to get up at least once … when my insomnia hits … I usually take a trip around 2:00 am … and if it doesn’t hit … I’m usually awaken by nature a little before 5:00 am … I then go back to sleep for an hour or so and that usually lets me wake up without an immediate need for the bathroom. TMI for anyone out there ??? 🙂

  2. I wonder how many number seven honestly, rather than with delicate revision. The first thing I think about in the morning sends me on an urgent mission to the bathroom. 😉
