Silence of the Lambs Never Gets Old

People are always trying to tell me what to do. I tell you what, if I wasn't still losing my soul online for work right now, I would tell them all to suck rope. But I am online. And I have to keep myself off the shoe sites. My mortgage is a jerk. So it's a meme. Before you all sigh heavily, just know that I already have. For all of us. But I've also had a beer so I'm over it and you need to be too. 'sides, I was tagged by Erin and I think she's cooler than you. She knows how to hotlink things in the comments section. What can YOU do? So here's what's with the up. I have to answer some questions. I have done so below:

What is your current obsession?
Hmm, I have a few. True Blood (shut up), travel planning, writing on this stupid thing and your mom.


#2: Who was the last person you hugged?
Well now I don't know. I'm not a hugger. Who's shocked? I think maybe my grandparents who I saw last weekend. Yes, I think I hugged them. I make exceptions for grandparents.

#3: What's your favorite dinner?
Tomato soup and grilled cheese. Shut up.

#4: What are you listening to right now?
The Colbert Report and the dishwasher. And typing.

#5: What was the last movie you saw in the theater?
I just saw The Reader on Monday. At first Mandy and I were all "ha ha! 15 year old dong!" And then it got all serious and our buzz wore off. But, you know, it was good. I'd read the book so I'd been wanting to compare. It was quite...thoughtful. A wonderful character study. And there was some 15 (really he was 18, so it was ok) year old nekkid European jail bait.

#6: What was the last thing you bought? A leopard print bra because it was the only one in my size and a sundress to lessen the pain of bra shopping.

#7: What is your favorite weather? The kind that allows me to sit on a patio and have a nice cold beer while judging passersby based on clothing, hair and accessories.

#8: Say something to the person who tagged you
She knows how to knit. Knit well. Lord knows I've tried. I have about 7 extra fingers.

***continued on day 2***

#9: Coffee or Tea? Tea. Perfect since I'm from the land of the coffeeshop. And I drink it straight - no milk or sugar. I'm a dried leaf bad ass!

#10: What did you want to become as a child?
When I was leetle I wanted to be a professional cheerleader. And then I wanted to be a girl version of Gene Kelly. What can I say, I was an uninspired child.

#11: If you could go anywhere in the next hour, where would it be?
Well I just got back from the Grilled Cheese Grill (YES) so it's hard to imagine wanting to be anywhere else. But if pressed, I would say space.

#12: Who do you want to meet in person?
Wes Anderson. And then I would seduce him. And in doing so, would absorb is creativity.

#13: What is your most challenging goal right now?
Coworkers read this so I'm going to lie and say it's NOT trying to start my own business.

#14: What is your weirdest obsession?
Weirdest? I'll drop everything to watch pretty much any BBC production of a classic novel. I'm a Masterpiece Theater junkie. And am very aware of how alone I am in this.

#15: Why did you start a blog?
Because a coworker told me to thinking it might lessen the number of random thoughts shared with the room. Oh well.

I guess this goes on, but it's making me analyze my blog and I don't like being reminded that I'm self absorbed. However, I DO like being reminded that I have dainty feet. Unrelated thought.

I'm not going to tag anybody because hotlinking takes work and I don't think I need to remind you that I just got back from The Grilled Cheese Grill. Mama needs a nap.

9 keep(s) me blogging:

If you're not a hugger, you must be into nibbles and nuzzles and licks. "Go for the back of her neck" is my advice to your co-workers.

Good Job Kara (Not The Waif)!
You seem absolutely exhausted now, I hope you are getting some rest. I, on the other hand am getting ready to read one thousand books to Max before her dad picks her up for the weekend. Yay Hip Hop Hooray.

And I crochet, not knit. Not that it matters one little bit, but I don't even know how to knit, so I don't want it to look like I told you to tell everyone that I'm a super good knitter when I don't even know how to...

#7 is my perfect day! *sigh*

Have a super grilled cheese nap:D

The Future said...

What are comfort food qualifiers? We all know a grilled cheese sandwich qualifies, and I think Mac and Cheese qualify, and I think a regular KFC meal qualifies, so what do they all have in common? Hm, I guess it's fat, possibly starch and/or carbohydrates and cholesterol inducers. And I wonder if it's called comfort food because the heaviness it leaves you with induces stupor aka sleep? Sigh... more unanswered questions.

You have a Grilled Cheese Grill? Like, a place that sells grilled cheeses?

I need to live where you live.

kara said...

goranas - how well you know me. remarkable.

erin - damnit! i'm sorry - i don't know where the line is between crocheting and knitting. but either way, your scarves and hats are cool and you better keep that etsy shop well stocked at the christmas times.

mona - if you're ever in p-town, i'll treat you to the pops:

mum - cheese. all it needs is cheese.

woozie - if people are gonna keep moving here, they may as well be cool, so you are welcome. or i'll send you one. lord knows college kids don't eat well.

When someone confronts ME with a list of questions they want answered, I usually ask if my attorney can be present.

Rachel said...

I am shocked--SHOCKED, I say-- that you did a meme.

I love your number 15. I'm sure my coworkers must have ached for me to start my own blog, back when I was working full-time in an office.
