more about YOU and me


My pal Jessica wanted to know more about her readers, so put up this set of questions. I wanna know more about YOU. Here's what I say, then you can copy the list below my answers and paste into comments and introduce yourself!!!!!!!

1. How was your day? It has been most good so far. Very cold again, 22 degrees, but also very sunny which I love in winter. The house is very bright and wonderful, the little kiln is happily firing away, soon I will make more cats and pigs and also have more coffee and walk the beast in the sunshine.

2. Do you prefer sweet or salty foods? I don't have a sweet tooth compared to some people, just a little baked chocolate something sometimes, and try to stay away from salt, but goodness: corn chips or spicy fries??????? An important part of life.

3. Do you like to go out or stay in? Um, I think I never go anywhere.

4. What's your favorite type of music? ALL OVER the place, but I have listened to Talking Heads Remain in Light so many times but I still look for hidden meanings (there are none, but I look anyway) but more recently of course I totally <3 Godsmack. Oh my God I love Godsmack. And that video.

5. What's your favorite color? I always think RED, and my bookbag and bike are red, but then I think purple because my house is purple and under my hair is a big purple birthmark and I like my grape purple glaze and grape soda but then again my favorite shirt color is dark green except when I wear a grey tee which is most of the summer but then again I love blue glazes.......

6. Have you ever taken a ride in a hot air balloon? Would you like to? Well, no. I'd like to ride a pony though!

My turn! My turn!

1. How was your day? So far, so good. Going to be a fun night as friends are in from out of town and the plans consist of Middle Eastern food, a drag show and dancing into the wee hours of the morning (high hopes, I know).
2. Do you prefer sweet or salty foods? Most definitely salty. But the combo of salty & sweet is killer. Love me some chocolate covered pretzels.
3. Do you like to go out or stay in? Varies, but I am a bit of a homebody, regardless of #1 above.
4. What's your favorite type of music? Everything! Recently have listened to A Place to Bury Strangers, Ulrich Schnauss, The B-52s, Neko Case...the list goes on and on and is all over the road.
5. What's your favorite color? I'm going to say green, but orange is a close second. And now I have an orange Honda Fit and it's really fun!
6. Have you ever taken a ride in a hot air balloon? Would you like to? I have not and yes, I would.

Thanks for asking!

Let's hope Gary Larson doesn't catch you with that copyright violation. ;)

1. How was your day?
It's just getting started 'cause it's only 10 am here on the west coast. I'm off to my least-favourite class today and then I have to work tonight. However, I get to hang out in the photo studio at school so all is awesome.
2. Do you prefer sweet or salty foods?
Depends. I really like sweets, specifically orange, red, and purple Skittles. However, I make wicked guacamole at least twice a month and we eat it with either baked chips and cheese or quesadillas. Mmmm...salty.
3. Do you like to go out or stay in?
IN. Absolutely. Until I'm tired of being in and then I must go OUT.
4. What's your favorite type of music?
I have to pick a favourite? Pffbt.
5. What's your favorite color?
Blue. No, wait, green.
6. Have you ever taken a ride in a hot air balloon? Would you like to?
Hell no and hell no!

1. How was your day? Good! I was roused at 7:10 by Christian, who is an early riser. I helped the boys get ready for school, then brought them over at 8:20am. When I got back home, Angel was frantically looking for her keys, so I helped her find them. Then she left to attend Christian's V-day party, and I went to my class. At my class I spent the day glazing 6 remaining little test bowls, and a vase, then paid for all my firing fees (22 test bowls, vase, and a nice big bowl). I had a nice lunch with my classmates and teacher, then I left at 3pm to pick up the boys from school. Now we are home and the evening ritual begins.

2. Do you prefer sweet or salty foods? Hmmm, both and neither. I find a salted nut roll scrumptious, but many things can be too sweet or too salty for me. My favorite flavors are curry and paprika.

3. Do you like to go out or stay in? Stay in. I only like talking to people I know.

4. What's your favorite type of music? Alternative Rock (Indie), Post Punk, Trance.

5. What's your favorite color? Green.

6. Have you ever taken a ride in a hot air balloon? Would you like to? No. Yes.

1. How was your day?
Fine. Sunny mid-winter days are always fun providing you don't stand in the shade.
2. Do you prefer sweet or salty foods?
Savoury, any time. Sweet is cloying.
3. Do you like to go out or stay in?
I like to go out, have a ball, and then come home.
4. What's your favorite type of music?
Anything with a tune I can sing along to.
5. What's your favorite color?
We don't do color here, we do colour. My favourite colour is... all of them, in glorious, splendiferous profusion.
6. Have you ever taken a ride in a hot air balloon?
Yes.
Would you like to?
Again? I don't think so. Cramped, smelly, and rather bumpy when it comes to landing.

1. How was your day? Busy. Took a vacation day and spent it running errands and picking out new glasses (spectacles) with Mrs. J

2. Do you prefer sweet or salty foods? Salty. I'm done after two pieces of chocolate, but can put away a bag of nacho cheese Doritos in one sitting.

3. Do you like to go out or stay in? Depends. If I stay in too long, I have to get out and about. Once I'm out for a while, I need to come back home.

4. What's your favorite type of music? Alternative, indie, 80's, lot of the stuff you listen to, Gary. Most the videos you post are for songs sitting on my CD rack

5. What's your favorite color? Blue

6. Have you ever taken a ride in a hot air balloon? Would you like to? No, and no. I do like horseback riding though. I think a pony would be a little bumpy.

cm said...

1. How was your day?
The very best, as they say, despite having awakened way too early.
2. Do you prefer sweet or salty foods?
Can I say both?
3. Do you like to go out or stay in?
Again, can I say both? I like to go out but not talk to anyone while I'm out.
4. What's your favorite type of music?
Trad.
5. What's your favorite color?
Today, red.
6. Have you ever taken a ride in a hot air balloon? Would you like to?
No, and who's asking? :-)

1. How was your day?
Busy! I left the house at 8:45 a.m. and didn't get back until 7 p.m. I doesn't sound so traumatic when I write it down--it just sounds like I'm a whiner!

2. Do you prefer sweet or salty foods?
Both please--hot, buttered salty popcorn with a Hershey bar is my idea of heaven.

3. Do you like to go out or stay in?
I lean toward stay in, but I get restless if I'm in for too long.

4. What's your favorite type of music?
Impossible to answer--I like everything but head-banger music.

5. What's your favorite color?
Blue--no contest.

6. Have you ever taken a ride in a hot air balloon?
No :(

Would you like to?
I think so--I used to want to really a lot, but in my declining years I'm a little iffy on heights. I would definitely give it a try and just have some Xanax in my pocket in case I started to freak.

YOUR TURN!!!!!

1. How was your day?
Very good yesterday, despite my sniffles. I had my job evaluation, all us worker-bee drones know how we dread those. Mine went well, so I shall spend the Valentine's Day weekend celebrating.

2. Do you prefer sweet or salty foods?
Both. Together.

3. Do you like to go out or stay in?
I prefer to go out, but I telecommute from home and am 25 miles from the nearest "out" so I most often stay in with the cats.

4. What's your favorite type of music?
Anything with an edge, and skill. No screaming; no formula music.

5. What's your favorite color?
Blue. Isn't it funny that you chose that for my teapot?

6. Have you ever taken a ride in a hot air balloon? Would you like to?
I like to watch hot air balloons. If the opportunity arose to ride I would take it, but I wouldn't seek it out. I'm more amazed by the dedication of balloonists.

1. It was a good day. Dh, SnakeMaster, & I hiked a wee portion of the Appalachian Trail in beautiful 40-F weather. I didn't have to ice my feet or knees when I came home (a huge plus!!) although now my RLS is acting up and I'm frustratingly awake at 4am.

2. Usually sweet, but occasionally I go on a salt kick and must. have. chips.

3. Definitely I prefer to stay in. It's cozy and cheaper, and a lot less work than going out.

4. I like a wide variety of music, although I am not fond of rap.

5. BLUE with red being a 2nd choice.

6. No, but I think it would be an awesome experience.

1. How was your day?
Started with a migraine, but got better already, so pretty good! Setting up a craft studio with a friend – whee!

2. Do you prefer sweet or salty foods?
Both. I discovered a secret a long time ago – if you eat all of one or the other, you’ll get tired of it and stop. If you alternate, you can go all day! I eat a lot healthier now, though.

3. Do you like to go out or stay in?
I could stay in forever if it weren’t for Muvico Palace. Love the movie theater experience! We bring our own snacks. I have a movie date with my Dad one night a week and a friend one day a week.

4. What's your favorite type of music?
All over the map, like you. Love Talking Heads, too, and got into Godsmack a few years ago bigtime. I think they’re great performers, esp. live, so the dvds are great to exercise to. Loved alternative music when it was still alternative. Everything started to sound alike, so I went back to classic-style rock, old and new. Abney Park to dance to. My first musical awakening was as a kid, with my parents’ Simon and Garfunkel 8-tracks. Still enjoy folk rock. Actually, everything but modern jazz and classical, and some of those are pretty good as well. My screen name comes from one of my favorite groups.

5. What's your favorite color?
Red as a kid. Purple as a teenager. Blue of late. And I’ve been buying beads of natural green stones – all kinds. There are so many gorgeous colors in nature.

6. Have you ever taken a ride in a hot air balloon? Would you like to?
Nearly did in Napa Valley once, until we found out we had to get up before the sun (I’m a night owl) and the tickets were so incredibly expensive. Could’ve gotten a plane ticket instead. Would love to – it’s always been a dream. That and a dirigible ride - there’s a new company that’s starting that up again now. Still expensive, but one day…

1. How was your day? My family drove me flippin insane. I think each of them called making me want to scream.
2. Do you prefer sweet or salty foods? I like both, preferably together.
3. Do you like to go out or stay in? Stay in. Definitely stay in. Going out clothes are so binding.
4. What's your favorite type of music? The kind that is loud and making me smile.
5. What's your favorite color? Lime green
6. Have you ever taken a ride in a hot air balloon? Would you like to? Once. I abso-freakin-lutely loved it. And would love to do it again, but hubby says no. He also skipped the plane ride over the fingerlakes, which was also AWESOME.
