Because You Just Can't Get Enough

(Yes I know I'm copying some of you guys' posts, but oh well. It's not like you came up with the "about me" questions either)

1. Were you named after anyone?
Yes... my mom was watching some soap opera at the hospital after she had me. Judith Light was on there and she was playing a character named "Karen" and my mom thought it was a good name.

2. When did you last cry?
Geez, I don't even remember!

3. What is your favorite lunch meat?
Um, I know this sounds weird, but I really like bologna (think Cold Cut Combo from Subways). I also like turkey with pastrami.

4. Do you still have your tonsils?

5. Do you untie your shoes when you take them off?
Yes, because I'm usually in too big of a hurry to untie them when I need to put them back on!

6.What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
It depends on the day, but I really like Bananas Foster from Haagen Daaz. Actually just about anything from Haagen Daaz. And also Chubby Hubby from Ben & Jerry's.

7. Shoe Size?
8 or 8 1/2

8. Who do you miss the most?
My Grandpa Holley

9. Last thing you ate?
Sauerkraut Chowder

10. What are you listening to right now?
A guy in my office yelling at his computer.

11. Who was the last person you talked to on the phone?
My hair salon calling to confirm an appointment a couple days ago. I hardly ever talk to anyone on the phone!

12. What's the strangest thing you've seen?
A couple was driving down the freeway in an old 1957 BelAir convertible one summer next to my car. They were a younger couple and looked pretty retro (ie woman had a scarf over her hair and red lipstick, etc.). The man had his arm around the girl. And then I realized the girl was a cross-dressing man. Weird.

13. Do you wear contacts?
No, but I have before. Not worth the trouble for my low prescription.

14. What is the worst thing you've ever eaten?
I got a pasta dish at McGrath's Fish House once that had orange zest and scallops in it. I couldn't eat it. I didn't eat scallops for a long time after that. Not a good pairing. I also had some really gross fried oysters there once too. I don't eat at McGrath's anymore.

15. Last movie you watched at the movie theatre?
Avatar I think?

16. Favorite Dessert?
Pie... usually banana cream or mixed berry

17. What books are you reading?
The Time Traveler's Wife & Prospecting for Trout

18. What did you watch last night?
Jeopardy! I love that show.

19. The furthest you've been from home?

20. What's your special talent?
I don't know if it's that special but I'm pretty good at cooking stuff.

21. Favorite singer right now?
Hmmm... I don't listen to much these days. But I'm always in the mood for Brandi Carlile. And I really like Fiona Apple's "Extraordinary Machine" album.

22. Right or Lefty?

23. One thing you want to do before you die?
Go to New Zealand and catch some of those gigantic browns!

I like that post. It's fun to read about weird common place things about someone. The two "guys" in the car thing is really weird...

It's smart of you to untie your shoes when you take them off - I hate taking the time to do that but always regret it when it comes time to put the shoes back on!

How was England? I want to go there!
