Got the following quiz forwarded to me from a friend who lives out of state. Instead of forwarding my responses to folks, figured I'd post here so people can choose to either read or not!

At a friend's memorial service a couple weeks ago.

NO! I hate to dream about falling let alone do it in real life!
10. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CEREAL?
Honey Nut Cheerios followed by a close 2nd of Cocoa Krispies
But normally if it's not cheerios I eat now, it's hot flavored oatmeal.

as a favorite color neither - but if I had to choose it would be red. If it's wine - definitely pink. My favorite color is purple.
16. WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT YOURSELF?
I'm a little too bossy & I probably interrupt people way more than I should (shouldn't do it anyway I guess!) And I lack patience.

My grandparents & brother. Those who live too far for me to see often would be my parents, in-laws & kids.

yes - wish I could see her more often!

Football - NFL not college unless it's Ohio vs Michigan or Ohio playing in a bowl game.
27. HAIR COLOR?
Naturally dark brown with some gray - but since I don't like the gray or the dark, today it's a light golden brown which gives my hair a little more bronze/golden red color.
HAIR EYE COLOR? Ok, all you people - did you NOT read this right the first time or did you not want to tell me that I screwed up - should be EYE color not Hair color. And if you know me - you do know my hair color is DEFINITELY NOT blue!
29. DO YOU WEAR CONTACTS?
30. FAVORITE FOOD?
Pizza followed by Italian
31. SCARY MOVIES OR HAPPY ENDINGS?
Generally if it has a real ending I'm happy! Pretty much an uplifting or happy ending. I'd rather watch psychological suspense/thriller mysteries that I can't figure out until the end!
32. LAST MOVIE YOU WATCHED?
Shrek 3 but that's only because 1st grader wanted to watch it. The last movie in a theater I saw was Pirates of the Carribean 3 last summer. Last movie I really wanted to watch on DVD that I sat through was the Bourne Ultimatum.
33. WHAT COLOR SHIRT ARE YOU WEARING?
34. SUMMER OR WINTER?
Actually spring! But since it's 30 or below here (in Texas) now, I'd prefer summer. But summer in Texas with over 100 degree temps & over 50% humidity is when I change my mind!
