Advantages Confidential Confessions
Disadvantages Shrouded in Mystery
By special request, I've completed the following. I hope it doesn't give away too many of my secrets!1. What time is it
2. Name as it appears on Birth certificate
Darla Ann. My grandchildren (there are now three, 2 boys and a girl) call me "BawBaw"--a name bestowed on me by my elder grandson when he first started talking. I treasure being BawBaw.
4. Number of candles that appeared on your last Birthday cake
53, but it's a well-known fact that birthday cakes exaggerate
My father had a small one. It consisted of his Social Security Number and the initials of the girlfriend who preceded my mother. I learned some valuable lessons from that tattoo: Never get a tattoo when you're a bit tipsy. And whatever you do, DON'T put anything in writing that can incriminate you.
8. Favourite Colour
Gosh, probably blue at the moment. But I confess to being fickle with favourite colours. It may be green or daffodil yellow by tomorrow. I love the colours of early spring.
10 Current Relationship status
Married a mere 34 years. Our anniversary is February 12. We knew each other exactly 4 months when we got married. Crazy kids, we were. But we made it work and have had a grand time in the process. He has been my one true love.
12. Loved somebody so much it made you cry
Often: my parents, my husband, my children, my grandchildren, and several special friends
14. Croutons or bacon bits
Croutons, preferably with lots of herbs.
16. Favourite movie
Hmmmm, that's hard. I favour several. I love the new Lord of the Rings movies. Star Trek IV is a longstanding favourite. Exodus gets drug out at least once a year. Fiddler on the Roof touches my bittersweet sentimentality. The Italian Job makes me laugh. The Green Mile makes me cry. So does How Green Was My Valley. Once again, the list can go on and on.
18. Favourite day of the week
Saturday, the traditional sabbath, a day of rest and renewal
20. Favourite restaurant
Hillbrook Inn, located just 4 miles down the road from my house. Hillbrook has a cordon bleu-trained chef. Dinner at Hillbrook is always a surprise. On making the reservation, guests inform the chef of dietary dislikes and restrictions. She then prepares the menu based on what is left in the world of food. Dinner is a 7-course meal served at a leisurely pace and accompanied with appropriate wines. Dinner at Hillbrook is always a special occasion.
22. Favourite Beverage
There are many categories that apply here. One answer is not appropriate. After all, variety is the spice of life. Note a few favs as follows:
Soft drink: RC Cola
Mixed Drink: Marguerita (with Long Island Iced Tea a close second)
Fruit juice: Freshly squeezed Orange Juice
Hot drink(s): coffee, tea, and hot chocolate--depending on my mood
Water and milk are also favourites.
24. Preferred type of Ice cream
Dairy Queen frozen vanilla custard
26. Favourite fast food Restaurant
I was going to say I don't have one, but there is a small chain in my native Southwest that I patronize whenever I go home. It's called Lot-A-Burger. They specialize in huge Whopper-sized burgers served with your choice of green or red chilies. Yum! My mouth is watering just thinking about it.
28. When was your last hospital visit
For myself, 31+ years ago, when my younger daughter was born. As a visitor, March 19, 2003, when my granddaughter was born.
30. How many times did you fail your drivers test?
I don't fail tests, never did.
32. Have you ever been convicted of a crime?
Never, and I'm sticking to that story.
34. What do you do most often when you're bored?
When I'm bored with the pace of the evening, I pick up a book, resume my crochet, or putter off to my 'puter. I'm a rather dull person.
When I go to bed. I haven't had a bedtime since I was 10.
38. Last person you went out to dinner with
Himself (my dear husband)--this very night after work.
40. What car do you drive?
A black 1993 Ford Probe
