52 Things You Were Just Aching to Know About Me

From Kim to Kim to me. . .

1. FIRST NAME? Tulip. No, really. Did you expect me to use a nom de plume all this time and just give out my given name? If you really, really insist upon knowing, I know you won't have too much trouble figuring it out.

2. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE? My first name is a derived from my grandmother's maiden name. And my middle name is my mother's maiden name. When I was in sixth grade, my Jamaican bus driver's name was Miller. I felt such kinship, since my middle name was Miller, too.

3. WHEN DID YOU LAST CRY? Tonight. I'm feeling awfully sentimental and enjoying a nice glass of wine.

4. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING? It's okay. A mixture of D'Nealian and Italic, and not very neat. My o's look like e's.

5. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCHMEAT? None, really.

6. KIDS? 4 boys.

7. IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU? Maybe. I just don't know if we'd ever call each other.

8. DO YOU HAVE A JOURNAL? Now, a blog. And notes in my daytimer. But not the daily journal, prayer journal, and dream journal I used to keep before I was married.

9. DO YOU USE SARCASM A LOT? More than before I was married. *wink*

10. DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS? Yes.

11. WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP? Nope. Don't like heights. But one of our fave dates used to be to go sit on the bleachers and talk while we watched other jump.

12. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CEREAL? I don't eat breakfast very often, and cereal usually only when I steal a bite from the kiddos.

13. DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF? No.

14. DO YOU THINK YOU ARE STRONG? Depends upon the challenge, I'm a lot less strong, in person, than I idealized myself as. . .

15. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ICE CREAM? Toss up--Baskin Robbins Chocolate Mousse Royale or Breyers Cokiees and Cream.

16. SHOE SIZE? 8 1/2.

17. RED OR PINK? Neither. Remind me one day to tell the story of the pink trauma I suffered in 7th grade.

18. WHAT IS THE LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT YOURSELF? I don't measure up to my ideals.

19. WHO DO YOU MISS THE MOST? My Mom(IL) and sister(AZ).

20. DO YOU WANT EVERYONE TO SEND THIS BACK TO YOU? I'd love anyone who wants to do this to put it up and mentioned it in the comments.

21. WHAT COLOR PANTS AND SHOES YOU ARE WEARING? Multicolored sarong and barefoot.

22. LAST THING YOU ATE? Parmesean goldfish and sauvingnon blanc wine.

23. WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW? The ceiling fan.

24. IF YOU WERE A CRAYON, WHAT COLOR WOULD YOU BE? Midnight Blue

39. HUGS OR KISSES? Both.

40. FAVORITE DESSERT? Any kind of rich cake with a ganache frosting

41. WHO IS MOST LIKELY TO RESPOND? *shrug*

42. LEAST LIKELY TO RESPOND? I would have thought I was least likely, but. . .

43. WHAT BOOKS ARE YOU READING? The Child in Christian Though, Bunge; Berkhof's Systematic Theology, (like Kim! *L*); Banished Knowledge, Alice Miller; Psalms

44. WHAT'S ON YOUR MOUSE PAD? Don't have one. There is a nice, smooth spot on my wooden desk.

45. WHAT DID YOU WATCH LAST NIGHT ON TV? Didn't.

46. FAVORITE SOUNDS? the ocean waves

47. ROLLING STONE OR BEATLES? It's a toss up. And I know there are only two kinds of people. . .

Thanks for playing along!

Several questions:

As a Sauvignon Blanc fan, I have to ask, what label? We really like the New Zealand and Aussie S-b's. Current fave? Monkey Bay.

Next question--did you feel the least bit guilty eating goldfish now that your children have a fishy pet? ;-)

Would you like a really good recipe with ganache topping? Chocolate Hazelnut. . .mmmm. I'll post a link to it in my comments box.

Thanks for playing, TulipGirl! Hope all is well with you and yours!

I liked that word "countenance" you used for what you notice first about people.

Posted by: Kim in ON at April 1, 2006 11:33 AM

So, I copied the text from Kim fh's site and I finished half of it but I didn't like some of the questions so I rewrote them. Then I thought, "Why am I doing this if I'm going to rewrite it?" So I deleted the whole thing. Now, after reading TulipGirl's answers I wished I had kept it :-(

I have the same shoe size :-)

I did this - it certainly took a while though. Mostly fun to do anyway.

Posted by: Tracy at April 1, 2006 09:41 PM

I'm in! By the way, my maiden name is Miller too.
:-)

Mine are up--they have been for a couple of days, but I forgot to come back and tell you! Blessings for a wonderful weekend, and thank you for the catchecism excerpts...I came to the PCA too late as an elementary school student to learn them in order, and so it's lovely to have a review.
