Silly Survey

1: Grab the book nearest to you, turn to page 18, find line 4.
"...mically, her body frozen in the paralysis of crying children."
The Five People You Meet In Heaven

2: Stretch your left arm out as far as you can. What do you touch first?
My closet door

3: What is the last thing you watched on TV?
Trading Spaces - Home Free

4: WITHOUT LOOKING, guess what the time is:
7:25

5: Now look at the clock, what is the actual time?
7:40

6: With the exception of the computer, what can you hear?
The Von Bondies playing in the living room

7: When did you last step outside? What were you doing?
About 30 minutes ago. Watering all my plants.

8: Before you came to this website, what did you look at?
IRC

9: What are you wearing?
Tan suede shirt, white t-shirt underneath, black bra, pink leopard print panties, Tommy jeans, white socks, black/red Docs, gold necklace with Double Happieness gold and jade charm, gold wedding band.

10: Did you dream last night? What about?
Probably. Have no idea since I rarely remember my dreams.

11: When did you last laugh?
About 10 minutes ago

12: What is on the walls of the room you are in?
Two photographs of my daughter, two pictures that she drew for Mother's Day when she was 5 and 6, blue clock from Ikea, and I suppose my headboard counts since technically it hangs on the wall.

13: Seen anything weird lately?
Does my child dressed for school count?

14: What do you think of this quiz?
Sort of interesting I suppose.

15: What is the last film you saw?
Better Off Dead on the laptop two nights ago.

16: If you became a multi-millionaire overnight, what would you buy first?
No question...a house!

17: Tell me something about you that I don't know:
I have a freckle on my right ear. It bugs me.

18: If you could change one thing about the world, regardless of guilt or politics, what would you do?
I suppose saying "end all the bad things" is a little too general. No more hate would be a good thing. That might put an end to a lot of things.

19: Do you like to dance?
I used to love to dance. I haven't been out dancing in years and years though. I do miss the occasional slow-dance in the kitchen with my husband.

20: George Bush: is he a power-crazy nutcase or some one who is finally doing something that has needed to be done for years?
Fucking nutcase.

21: Imagine your first child is a girl, what do you call her?
I called her ****.

21: Imagine your first child is a boy, what do you call him?
I didn't name him, but his name is Chris. If the WildChild had been a boy...we never picked out a boy name. I would have gone for naming him after John and then called him JD.

22: Would you ever consider living abroad?
You mean again? Sure thing! I'm strange like that!

23: Will you pass on this survey?
Well I suppose that people could take it if they like...but we're not in study hall or anything so I don't see myself "passing" anything.

So uh, evidently there is a girl at my child's school that was doing piercings on other kids.

I just got a visit here at home from the mother of one of the WildChild's friends. She had just come from the ER with her daughter who now has blood poisoning from one of the amateur piercings. Seems they were piercing the web underneath the tongue.

There are times that I think I have a bad kid. Not today. She may have a strange mother with a pierced tongue and all, but at least she knows that things like that are supposed to be done by a professional, not someone at school in the girl's bathroom.

And for the record...yes, I checked her out. No piercings.
