Tag! I'm it!

I've been tagged by Mrs. Harridan at Mean Girl to the Rescue to fill out this survey. My first tag! I'm so excited! I have a strange compulsion to fill in pointless surveys about myself so this is perfect.

1. First name? Sassy
2. Were you named after anyone? No. But when I was little it seemed that everyone else had my same name. I had two best friends and two step-cousins named "Sassy". Not to mention an annoying character on General Hospital. And the President's daughter. (Ooo! A Clue!)
3. Do you wish on stars? Yes. It can't hurt.
4. When did you last cry? It’s actually been a little while. Maybe even a month. I’ve been surprisingly happy for the last few weeks. And I don't remember what the reason for the last outbreak was.
5. Do you like your handwriting? Depends on the day. It changes. Sometimes it flows beautifully. Other times it looks like I switch from writing with my right to my left hand, each letter having a different tilt and changing from cursive to … whatever the hell is the opposite of cursive. What the heck do you call that? Print?
6. What is your favorite lunch meat? Turkey. Preferably fresh off the carcass.
7. When is your birthday? August 1976. I'm a Leo. Grrr… and a Dragon according the the Chinese calendar. I'm one dangerous chick. Don't mess with me.
8. What is your most embarrassing cd? Friendster Guy would probably say my Will Smith’s Greatest Hits. I’d have to go with my, not one, but two, Michael Crawford CDs. I remain unashamed of owning Clay Aiken.
9. If you were another person would you be friends with you? Absolutely. But I’d probably be annoyed with her/me and want her to shut up so I could get a word in edgewise.
10. Do you have a journal? Just this blog. I tried different journals throught my youth and now have several nice, empty, except for a page or two, notebooks.
11. (Number 11 is missing from the list so I'm going to make a question up.) Would you pose nude for an art class? (This is a set-up.) I've already done this. And I'd do it again except probably not at an undergraduate institution like last time. I want the people who are drawing me to at least understand the affects of gravity. Better yet if they've experienced them.
12. Would you bungee jump? I have. I’d probably do it again.
13. What is your favorite cereal? If I had no worries about my health or weight I’d say Cookie Crisp, Fruity Pebbles (until they get all mooshy), and original Captain Crunch, except those little treasure chests rip up the inside of my mouth. What I actually purchase and enjoy is frosted shredded wheat. A compromise between my health and my sweet tooth.
14. Do you untie your shoes when you take them off? Yes. Otherwise I wouldn't be able to get them off.
15. Do you think that you are strong? Yes. Physically (if you were here I'd make you feel my bicep. It's a compulsion I have. I love the surprised look on people's faces.) and, most of the time, emotionally.
16. What is your favorite ice cream flavor? Ben & Jerry’s Chocolate Fudge Brownie.
17. Shoe Size? It’s shrunk down to a size 6. I used to be a 7 to 7.5. Why can’t my waist line do that? WTF?
18. Red or pink? Definitely red. I have an over-abundance of red in my wardrobe.
19. What is your least favorite thing about yourself? Hmmm. I’m actually having a hard time with this question. I currently think I’m fabulous. Physically I’d probably say my tummy but it gets me through the abs class I teach so it’s stronger than most people’s so that’s cool. Psychologically I wish I was a little more confident in my sexuality or sensuousness or whatever it is. But I’m getting there.
20. Who do you miss the most? Friendster Guy. What can I say? I'm smitten.
21. Do you want everyone you send this to to send it back? Nah. I’m not really sending it to anyone. But I will probably tag someone. Let's see, how about December Flower and Jennifer Myszkowski?
22. What color pants and shoes are you wearing? Black. The shoes I bought this past weekend for $2.50! They were already on super sale at $10 and when I got to the register they were 75% off! Killer.
23. Last thing you ate? Half a monsterous whoopie pie (The link is for those of you who don't know what one is. FYI chocolate is the only real kind. Do not be fooled by immitations.) What? I'm carbo loading for my 10K tomorrow! I only ate half because that half was 486 calories. I kid you not. I think my eyes are losing focus from the sugar. And good lord the fat.
24. What are you listening to right now? Someone chatting in the hall and the hum of various office electronics. Earlier it was NPR because I started to fill this out at home.
25. If you were a crayon what color would you be? Red. Red, red, red.
26. Who was the last person you talked to on the phone? My step-mother. It was her birthday yesterday.
27. Fingers or toes? Toes. Mine are very cute and little. And make an almost perfect square. I am not a pointy toed shoe girl.
28. The first thing you notice about the opposite sex? Eyes. Smile. Whether they seem kind.
29. Do you like the person who sent this to you? Sure! I don’t know her but I enjoy her comments and her blog.
30. Favorite Drink? Mocha lattes, hot or iced.
31. Favorite Sport? Softball. But only because I play in a league. Not to watch.
32. Hair Color? Brown with auburn highlights (or so I’d like to think)
33. Favorite office supply item? I'm going to have to concur with Mrs. Harridan on this one. Sharpies. I wish I had more use for them. I'm a color coding freak. Seriously, I need to be stopped. I won't start reading a document unless I have a red, green, and blue felt tip pen next to me. Just in case I have to make notes.
34. Do you wear contacts? Nope. No glasses either. Lucked out I guess.
35. Favorite Food? This is so hard. Ethnic. Asian. Chocolate. Anything I don’t have to cook.
36. Last Movie You Watched? U-571 with Friendster Guy – from his Netflix list. 37. Favorite Day Of The Year? Any day I’m on vacation.
38. Scary Movies Or Happy Endings? Happy Endings. I hate scary movies. I empathize too much. I have a visceral response and it's uncomfortable. Plus, I live alone and a sleepless night waiting for some sort of monster/alien/psycho killer/ghost/virus to come get me is a bad scene.
39. Summer or winter? Summer.
40. Hugs or Kisses? Bring ‘em on
41. Favorite dessert? Strawberry Rhubard pie. Chocolate lava cake. One of each please!
42. What's On Your Mouse Pad? Plain, boring, gray. It came with the office. Same with my one at home. But that one has a wrist rest. I should get myself on Snapfish and order a cute one with one of my pictures on it.
43. What Did You Watch Last night on TV? I don’t have TV. I spent the evening doing laundry, washing dishes, and playing with Quicken hoping to find money I don’t have.
44. Favorite Smells? Anything baking – especially something chocolate, Old Spice (a new addition to my smell list. Gee, wonder why?), Spring, popcorn
45. Favorite Sounds? Laughter, Musak (just kidding)
46. Stones or Beatles? Beatles. I don't really like this question. It's kind of time to move on.
47. Where's the furthest you've been from home? Morocco
48. What books are you reading? The Number, by Lee Eisenberg – it’s about retirement, Harry Potter y el Prisionero de Azkaban, JK Rawling – a Spanish translation. I’m trying to improve my Spanish or at least preserve it. Something on the Scopes trial for a book club.

U-571! I hate that movie with a passion, and not because it's a bad movie or anything. It was good the first 2 or 3 times I saw it. Unfortunately, the German teacher I had in high school liked it, and showed it to us at least once a year. Usually, it was more than that.
