Friday Round Up: Tech Edition

Because the Day is Slipping Away

I had other plans for a post today.  But the day is slipping away.  And Kool Kat started something.  So I'm going to copy her.

A Meme:

  1. Do you like bleu cheese?  I do!
  2. Have you ever smoked? Just a bit; in college - mostly in social situations where I wanted to look cooler than I felt.
  3. Do you own a gun?  No.
  4. Favorite type of food?  I can't even begin to answer this one.  I like food as a broad category, and can't really narrow it down to a "type."
  5. Favorite type of music?  Can't answer this one, either.  Maybe that's why my iPod has over 3,000 songs. . .
  6. What do you think of hot dogs?  I like grilled hot dogs with just plain mustard and dill pickle relish. 
  7. Favorite Christmas movie?  Love Actually.
  8. What do you prefer to drink in the morning?  Coffee with cream.
  9. Can you do push ups?  You bet I can!  I did 25 this morning!
  10. What’s your favorite piece of jewelry?  I wear my wedding/anniversary ring every day, but my favorite piece ever is was a handmade blown-glass heart (thanks, Tom) on a gold chain.  I still feel terrible that I lost it.
  11. Favorite hobby?  Knitting, gardening, reading, photography.
  12. Do you have A.D.D.?  No.
  13. Do you wear glasses/contacts?  Contacts. . . and cheaters.
  14. Middle name?  Ann.
  15. Name three thoughts at this exact moment:  I really should complete my presentation for tomorrow; I need to spray paint some buckets; I wish Brian's car was ready to be picked up so I didn't have to drive him to school in the morning.
  16. Name three drinks you regularly drink:  Tea, coffee, wine, water.  (I can count; but I can't limit my drinks to three.)
  17. Current worry?  Will the Red Wings ever get their act together this season?
  18. Current hate right now?  Leaders thinking only for the short-term, with no regard for long-term solutions.
  19. Favorite place to be?  Anywhere - with the people I love.
  20. How did you bring in the new year?  At home with Tom.
  21. Someplace you’d like to go?  Paris, Nova Scotia, Sweden, Italy, back to Belize.
  22. Name three people who will complete this.
  23. Do you own slippers?  Yep.
  24. What color shirt are you wearing?  Burgundy.
  25. Do you like sleeping on satin sheets?  I'm not sure I have ever tried that.
  26. Can you whistle?  Yes, but I'm not as good as my Dad!
  27. Where are you now?  In my home office.
  28. Would you be a pirate?  No.  I'm neat and I like order, plus I'm pretty law-abiding.  But I'd like to learn pirate songs.  And maybe drink rum.
  29. What songs do you sing in the shower?  I talk to myself in the shower, but I don't sing there.
  30. Favorite girl’s name?  Kelly.  (Tom wouldn't go for it, and Erin is glad.)
  31. Favorite boy’s name?  Michael.  (If we'd used that one, it would've sounded too much like "Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel" when combined with our last name.  Couldn't have that, now!)
  32. What is in your pocket right now?  Nothing.
  33. Last thing that made you laugh?  Something Erin said on the phone a while ago.  
  34. What vehicle do you drive?  2005 Subaru Forester.
  35. Worst injury you’ve ever had?  Once I had a couple of stitches in my finger, but other than that, I haven't had any injuries.  I have, though, had cancer.  Does that count?
  36. Do you love where you live?  I do!  I love Michigan.
  37. How many TVs do you have in your house?  Three.
  38. How many computers do you have in your house?  Two.  One is really,really ancient. . . and the other is nearing the end of it's life. 
  39. If you changed your job, what would it be?  I would be a garden designer!
  40. If you had three wishes what would they be?  To squeeze all I can out of every day; to do what I can to make a difference in the world; and for Good Things to happen for the people I love.
Back to my regular posting tomorrow!

Wonderful list!


Don't know where to begin! We have so much in common (but we knew that) including how we like hot dogs!


Marvelous!! It's a fun meme! Thank you.


Interesting info! It's like getting to know you better. :)


Great list, and another Subaru fan! (I've had 3.)
