Kickin' it oldschool

On Tuesday I read this post by my friend Julia.  A quick google search later and I found a random myspace survey.  My cousins and I used to really love these things.  In fact, I remember Hayley and Lauren wrote a survey and made it a contest for the funniest answers.  I miss those days.  So here are my answers to a myspace survey with 62 questions.  If you decide to go oldschool with me, copy this and write your own answers on your blog and leave me the link!!  I wanna read what you have to say!

1. Song that always makes you sad?
Probably Eleanor Rigby.  As I continued writing this Tears in Heaven came on my pandora playlist.  That one for sure.  Skipping it.

2. Last thing you bought?
Is it a good thing that I can't remember?  Oh wait, I couldn't remember because it was BORING.  I bought formula and diapers and wipes.  

3. Last person you argued with?
Probably Adam.  Not because I don't love him, but just because we're together all the time.  More opportunity for disagreement.  

4. Do you put Butter before putting the peanut butter on?
Absolutely NOT.

5. One of your stuffed animals' names as a kid?
Thomas H. Dooley.  The H was for Hermansen, my maiden name.  Little did I know my married name would be Thomas.  Did I just blow your mind????

6. Did you ever own at one time a Barenaked Ladies Cd?

7. Favorite day of the week?
Friday or Saturday.  Friday is just like any other day of the week, but you're happy just because its the last one.  It doesn't really make sense.  But by the time its Saturday the weekend seems almost over. . . 

8. Favorite Sundae topping?
Home made hot fudge.  Stuff from a jar just cannot compare.

9. Did you take Piano lessons?

10. Most frequent song played?
On the radio?  How would I know?!?!?!  Or maybe they meant when I played the piano?  I really liked Claire de Lune.  Because of Oceans 11.  

11. T.V. show you secretly enjoy?
The Bachelor.  Although its probably not a secret, but I'm not totally proud of my viewership.  I know they aren't going to find true love or anything, I'm just fascinated by the reason someone would go on the show after all these seasons proving that it DOESN'T WORK.  No matter, I still love it.  I hope that the good girl/guy wins in the end, but I know it most likely wont end in marriage.  I don't know why I like it so much!!!  I guess its like people watching in detail. 

12. Would you rather play basketball or hockey?
Gee, if I really have to, I choose basketball, just because it seems less likely that I'll injure myself.

13. Date someone older or younger?
I'm married so I have to say how it is:  Younger.

14. One place you could travel right now?
Could?  Or would?  I would go to St George just because its close and warmer and it wouldn't be too hard to take Olivia on a 4 hour drive.

15. Do you use umbrellas?
Not really.  I own one, I think.  I don't know where it is.  I just let my hair get wet and it is what it is.

16. Do you know all the words to the Canadian national anthem?
I don't even know ONE word.

17. Favorite Cheese?

18. The Smith's or the Cure?
Um, I'm sure I know songs by both groups but I can't really make an informed decision right now.

19. Do you prefer Blondes or Brunettes?

20. Best job you ever had?
Working at a dr's office is pretty much my ideal job.  

21. Did you go to your high school prom?
Yeppers.  Both my junior and senior year.  Not my best memories.  Not bad, just not all its cracked up to be.

22. Perfect time to wake up?
6am in the summer, 8am in the winter.

23. Perfect time to go to bed?

24. Do you use your queen right away in chess?
I have no game plans for chess.  I just do what I want and lose.

25. Ever been in a car accident?

26. Closer to mom or dad...or neither?
Both.  Its different with each of them.

27. What age is this exciting life over for you?
NEVER!  I think our preferences change as we age so even though getting old looks boring to us now, I bet it wont be when we get there.

28. What decade during the 20th century would you have chosen to be a teenager?
1960s.  No doubt.

29. Favorite shoes you have EVER owned?
Probably some high heeled hot pink shoes.  They might not be my favorite right now, but they were my most favorite when I bought them.  Does that even make sense???

30. Do you have an article of clothing you have had since you were in high school?
Yes, two skirts from the very end of my senior year.  They still fit!!

31. Were you in track and field?

32. Were you ever in a school talent show?
Yes in elementary, Missy, Stephanie and I all wore vests and sang a song Missy's sister wrote.  

33. Have you ever written in a library book?
Probably.  I don't remember.  My dad used to write in my school text books all the time and I would freak out!  

34. Allergic to?
Almost all fresh fruits and vegetables.  Eating local honey every day takes them away but they come right back if I stop doing that.  Crazy.

35. Favorite fruit?
Fresh peaches off my parents tree in California.  Well, I'm sure any fresh peaches would be good.

36. First celebrity crush?
I think it had to be Jonathan Taylor Thomas.  I don't think girls my age were given a choice.

37. Baseball hat or toque?
Who wrote this?  Do people actually call it a toque?  I say neither because hats aren't allowed at the school where I work.  And I forget to wear them the rest of the time!

38. Do you shampoo first in the shower or soap?
Shampoo very first so the conditioner can soak in while I wash and shave.  

39. Wet the toothbrush or brush dry with the toothpaste?
Either.  I don't have a strong preference one way or the other.

40. Pen or pencil?
Pen for most stuff, pencil for my grade book and lesson book.  

41. Have you ever gambled at a casino?
Yep and I won $20.  Stopped right there and walked away.  I know how to quit when I'm ahead.

42. Have you thrown up on a plane?
Same trip as the gambling actually!  I was sitting by my boss from the school district.  I was pregnant so that's why I was so sick.  

43. Have you thrown up in a car?
Oh yes, lots of times.

44. Have you thrown up at work?
Despite being pregnant all last year, I never did throw up at work.

45. Do you scream on roller coasters?
I don't know.  I'm sure I do, but its one of those things I don't pay attention to.

Never have been.

Stocking greeting cards at a grocery store.

1986 Toyota Pickup

My great-grandma when I was 9???  I'm guessing.

52. How old were you when you first moved away from your hometown?

53. Who was your first grade teacher?
Mrs. Something-That-Started-With-An-S.  Yeah, I probably would have changed it if that was my last name.

54. Where did you go on your first airplane ride?
Utah?  I was a baby, I don't remember.  But my first plane ride I can remember, I went to Amman Jordan.

55. When you snuck out of your house for the first time, who was it with?
I never did this!!  Seriously!

56. Who was your first Best Friend and are you still friends with them?
Missy Stebbing.  YES.  (And who was your English teacher and did she teach you not to capitalize random words?)

57. Where did you live the first time you moved out of your parent's house?
Deseret Towers, U Hall.  Not U Haul.  Talking to credit card people was always amusing.

59. Who's wedding were you in the first time you were a bridesmaid or a groomsmen?

60. What is the first thing you do in the morning?

Carrie Underwood?  It was the best because of the boy I was with.  She was also really good, but I don't really like Country music.

My ears when I was 18.   I'm a rebel like that.
