MeMe time

Have you ever made your lunch for work, and then not felt like eating it? And then you ate it anyway, but still, once you are done, you're not hungry anymore but you're also not really satisfied? (in case you're now curious, the lunch in question was black beans and rice. I'm blaming the lack of satisfaction on the fact that I was out of sour cream, which makes everything taste better, and instead put a little cheddar cheese on the concoction. Which was good but not creamy like sour cream.)

Anyway. Meme lifted from Vivi and posted because I've got nothing to say today.

1. How old do you wish you were? I'm ok with 31.

2. Where were you when 9/11 happened? This was when I was working at Jones Day in Washington, right near Union Station. No one knew what was going on and I called my mom and she said "come home." I was still living with my parents then. My dad was in Mexico for work and so I just set out on my own, not really knowing where I was going to go. My car was parked at a metro station but there was much confusion over whether the metro was running or not. I tried to get on at Union Station and it was definitely closed there. I walked about 4 miles or so and then I called my friend Katherine, who was living in Woodley Park. I had to wait in line and use a pay phone to call Katherine because all the cell circuits were busy and I couldn't get through. Luckily Katherine was home, and I went over there. A couple other people were already there. We could see the Pentagon from the roof of her building. Helicopters and fighter jets kept flying over. We watched Peter Jennings on ABC and had Chinese delivered for lunch. Eventually, I made my way back to the metro and made it home. My dad got home 3 or 4 days later, after flying from Mexico City to a border town, and having my aunt drive down from Austin and pick him & his co-workers up. Then they rented a car in Austin and drove back to Washington.

3. What do you do when vending machines steal your money? Get irritated but figure there isn't a lot I can do about it.

4. Do you consider yourself kind? I try to be.

5. If you had to get a tattoo, where and what would it be? I don't really like tattoos, but if I were forced, I'd get one that looked like a freckle on whatever part of my body it would hurt the least.

6. If you could be fluent in any other language what would it be? I think I'm pretty good with French. If I could add another, Spanish for its practicality or Italian because it's so pretty.

7. Do you know your neighbors? Well, you guys know I know Michael (who is moving this weekend!), Natasha and her dad, my downstairs Swedish neighbor, and a couple others by sight. That's it.

8. What do you consider a vacation? Traveling somewhere, but somewhere where I get to pick what I'm going to do all day long. That means, not New Orleans, or not anytime I have to go away for a specific reason, like a wedding or another event.

9. Do you follow your horoscope? No

10. Would you move for the person you loved? I think so. As long as he would also move for me, if that opportunity arose.

11. Are you touchy feely? No

12. Do you believe that opposites attract? Sometimes.

13. Dream job? I want to be a travel writer. I want people to pay for me to write witty stories about where I go and how fabulous it is. But I don't want to write guide books.

14. Favorite channels? I watch BBCA a lot, as well as regular network tv and some MTV. I also like IFC and Sundance for movies, and I still watch the made-for movies on the Disney Channel and ABC Family.

15. Favorite place to go on a weekend? Hum. Is it a long weekend? Because I've gone to France for a long weekend. I tend not to let time restrictions limit my travel like that. Although I probably wouldn't go to France if I only had 2 days. In that case, I'd go to Montreal.

16. Showers or Bath? Showers. I hate washing my hair in the bath.

17. Do you paint your nails? My toenails, yes. My fingernails, usually no.

18. Do you trust people easily? yeah, I think so.

19. What are your phobias? Heights. Really, really scared of heights. Oddly enough not scared of flying. I don't like things like rats, snakes, bugs, etc, but being up high is my main phobia.

20. Do you want kids? Someday

21. Do you keep a handwritten journal? Nope.

22. Where would you rather be right now? At home. I've got a lot to do this week at home!

26. Are you impatient? yep

27. Who can you relate to? Oh, lots of people in lots of different ways. My sisters. My friends.

28. How do you feel about interracial couples? This is a stupid question. (says Vivi, and I agree)

30. Whats your life motto? I don't have one. Maybe that's my problem. Suggestions being taken!

That was fun. I LOVED your answer to where you will be in 10 years!

And yes I know the feeling well of eating something and then being disappointed when you are done because it was NOT what you wanted. I eat the same thing for lunch every day, BUT at dinner I often suffer from that problem.
