I swiped this list from Megan at Megan has OCD. Questions are fun, especially weird questions. I didn’t count to be sure there are actually 100, but congrats if you make it to the end.
Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed?
If I’m cleaning up the house, I’ll close the closet, but it mostly stays open for convenience.
Do you take the shampoos and conditioner bottles from hotel?
It’s been years since I’ve stayed in a hotel/motel. I’ve taken them before, but I don’t think I would now. I have better stuff of my own. My grandma used to take all that stuff when she’d go on business trips and she’d bring me a big bag full. My favorite thing was the rose soap.
Do you sleep with you sheets tucked in or out?
I skip the sheet. I have a fitted sheet over the matress and sleep under my comforter. When it’s too hot for a comforter, I roll it into a body pillow to sprawl over.
Have you ever stolen a street sign before?
Do you like to use post-it notes?
Too much. I bought a cat-shaped post-it dispenser for my desk at home.
Do you cut out coupons but then never use them?
Guilty. Thing is, unless it’s part of the routine, I don’t really have room for it. My store does a great job of offering coupon deals on the things I know I’ll use.
Would you rather be attacked by a big bear or a swarm of bees?
Bees, I think. I’ve been stung by lots of things, but not by a bee, so I’m not sure if I’m allergic.
Do you have freckles?
Not freckles really. I have beauty marks (moles) and a cafe au lait mark on my left shoulder.
Do you always smile for pictures?
Not always. I just got scolded last week for not showing my teeth in a picture where I was smiling.
What is your biggest pet peeve?
Being interrupted when I’m busy. I can’t get too mad, because I always find a way to keep busy.
Do you ever count your steps when you walk?
I counted my steps walking when the streets were icy because I wanted to figure out how long it would take me to cross the busy street and whether I would have time without falling on my butt between cars going by. Pedestrians have died crossing that street when it wasn’t icy.
Have you ever peed in the woods?
What about pooped in the woods?
I can’t remember. I think I have.
Do you ever dance even if there’s no music playing?
I wouldn’t call it dancing.
Do you chew your pens and pencils?
I used to. Haven’t done that in a very long time.
How many people have you slept with this week?
Just one, but we were actually sleeping.
What size is your bed?
What is your song of the week?
“Hollow Body Weather” by Field Division
Is it okay for guys to wear pink?
Do you still watch cartoons?
What’s your least favourite movie?
Funny story, I rented Alone in the Dark several years ago, but didn’t even finish watching it. I moved that week and the disc got packed with my stuff. I forgot to take it back and then lost it for a year. By the time I found it, I was getting bills from the video store for $45. This is why I have Netflix and haven’t rented a movie from a brick and mortar store in ten years.
Where would you bury hidden treasure if you had some?
If I had some? What makes you think I don’t? I buried it…wait a second, I see what you did there.
What do you drink with dinner?
Water or maybe ginger ale.
What do you dip a chicken nugget in?
What is your favourite food?
What movies could you watch over and over and still love?
Ghostbusters, Indiana Jones, Princess Bride, Young Frankenstein, Romy & Michelle’s High School Reunion
Last person you kissed/kissed you?
My boyfriend :*
Were you ever a boy/girl scout?
I was a brownie. I bridged to junior and quit, because we didn’t do anything close to scouting. Our version of camping was camping out on the living room floor with Barbie dolls.
Would you ever strip or pose nude in a magazine?
If they wanted to pay me for that, sure.
When was the last time you wrote a letter to someone on paper?
I wrote a love letter to my boyfriend and mailed it to him even though we live in the same apartment.
Can you change the oil on a car?
Never tried, but the internet is an amazing place. I bet I could learn.
Ever gotten a speeding ticket?
Nope. I’ve gotten a warning for my plate light being out, and I fixed that myself.

No, which is kind of amazing since I’ve been driving a truck with a dysfunctional gas gauge for 13 years.
Favourite kind of sandwich?
Tuna with pickles and tomato.
Best thing to eat for breakfast?
What is your usual bedtime?
Between 1 and 2 in the morning.

Witch, vampire, werewolf anything scary.
What is your Chinese astrological sign?
How many languages can you speak?
Just English 😦
Do you have any magazine subscriptions?
I have a free sub to Red Bulletin. I did a Klout review for them over a year ago. I had a free year and when it ran out we were in the process of moving. Somehow they found me at the new address and sent me a letter saying they were giving me another year free, so I’m still getting those.
Which are better, legos or lincoln logs?
Legos, but I wasn’t allowed to have them when I was little, because my mom didn’t want to step on sharp corners.
Are you stubborn?
About some things.
Who is better, Leno or Letterman?
Meh. Craig Ferguson. Too bad he’s done.
Ever watch soap operas?
Not since I was a kid.
Are you afraid of heights?
I’m fine with heights, I just don’t like the sensation of falling. I’m kind of a control freak like that.
Do you sing in the car?
Lots. Sometimes I’m extra articulate at intersections, because it’s fun to have that moment of connection with someone who is listening to the same station.
Do you sing in the shower?
Do you dance in the car?
Head bobbing and drumming on the steering wheel is about as much dancing as I do.
Ever used a gun?
Yes. I was taught to use a shotgun to deal with pests, but it was so easy to use, I handed it over immediately. I was satisfied that I could use it if I needed to, but I never wanted to.
Last time you got a portrait taken by a photographer?
Do you think musicals are cheesy?
Hell no. I love musicals.
Is Christmas stressful?
It’s only stressful for me if the work holidays eat up too much of my paycheck. I don’t get holiday pay, so it’s possible I could end up with 35 hours for two weeks.
Ever eat a pierogi?
Favourite type of fruit pie?
Occupations you wanted to be when you were a kid?
Paleontologist, comedian, doctor, video game artist.
Do you believe in ghosts?
Part of me wants it to be true, because life would be so much more interesting, but honestly I don’t.

Didn’t I already answer this?
Take a vitamin daily?
No, I have enough pills to take.
Wear a bath robe?
I wear a house robe in cold weather, especially when I’m just taking my boyfriend to/from work. If I ever did have kids, I’d be the embarrassing mom that drops them off at school with the robe and curlers thing going on.
What do you wear to bed?
T-shirt and ninja turtle pajama pants.
Don’t judge, I grew up in Texas. Carmen.

We’re not getting married, but I know he’d love to get serious about photography if he had the right camera.
Can you curl your tongue?
I can do the triple loop too.
Ever won a spelling bee?
I never would. I can’t spell in my head. I have to write it down.
Have you ever cried because you were so happy?
Of course. I’ve cried because someone bought me a gift that would be considered silly and childish, but that I actually loved a lot. I’ve cried because I have a wonderful cat. I’ve cried because I have a wonderful boyfriend, especially when he walks to the store to get me crackers and soda and pickles because I’m sick.
Own any record albums?
Shut your face! I used to go to my grandma’s house and listen to records when nobody was home. When she moved, I asked my aunt if I could have the record player, but she said she hadn’t seen it (it was a significant piece of furniture, so I don’t believe that). Later at the estate sale when she was being put in the nursing home, my aunt called us out to pick up anything we wanted to keep. I searched the garage for the record player, found a box full of records, but not the player. *grumble*
Own a record player?
Regularly burn incense?
Not as often as I used to.
Ever been in love?
I’m always in love.

Unsweet iced tea anytime I go out to eat, hot Earl Grey at home.

Too patient, or maybe I’m fooling myself.
DJ or band at a wedding?
Not getting married, but DJ would be better.

Can you knit or crochet?
Best room for a fireplace?
The den if you’ve got one.
Do you want to get married?
If married, how long have you been married?
I’ve been engaged twice for a total of 9 years, but no plans currently.
Who was your HS crush?
Jalon Green. He was a nice guy, captain of the football team, listened to good music and played guitar. No clue what happened to him, but unfortunately nothing would surprise me.
Do you cry and throw a fit until you get your own way?
That’s so obnoxious and it only leads to resentment. When you handle things like an adult, things work out better for everybody.
Do you have kids?
Do you want kids?
What’s your favourite colour?
Orange, but I can’t wear it.
Do you miss anyone right now?
This question always makes me feel like a sociopath. I did an awful lot of missing people when I was younger, I would cry from missing people. I got put in my place one year when I was visiting my grandfather. It had been several years since my grandmother died, but he was still counting the days. I was crying because my boyfriend was two states away and we hadn’t been apart for more than a day the whole time we were together. My grandfather said, “Do you miss someone?” I nodded. “I miss someone too,” he said. From that day forward, I felt completely invalidated in missing anyone still living.
I’d love to see your 100 answers, so let me know if you do this.
