50-things meme

All photos from my cheapie free Flickr account! Purty!

This 50-things meme comes courtesy of Natalia Antonova--an awesome feminist, individual, blogger, and Duke gal. :)


1. What time did you get up this morning?

My day off, so I got up at a delicious 10:30 am. Woo-hoo!

Did you miss the last post? Do you mean tempeh or seitan steak? (Tamari and flax oil are fine!)

3. What was the last film you saw at the cinema?

Terminator Salvation. Ugh.

4. What is your favorite TV show?

Six-Feet Under, Sopranos, Mad Men, and the old Twilight Zone and Outer Limits shows--I try never to miss the SciFi network marathons on holiday weekends!

5. If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?

One of the barrier islands of South Carolina, particularly Folly Beach.

6. What did you have for breakfast?

According to Ayurveda, Kaphas don't need breakfast. (I've never wanted or needed it--consequently, I don't do breakfast.)

Mexican! They know how to do it, my friends!!!

Also love Chinese, Indian, Greek...

Most any, not real picky.

11.What kind of vehicle do you drive?

2000 Saturn with a dilapidated bumper ready to fall off.

I'm an old hippie, and if old hippies would wear it, I usually do... long skirts, jeans, t-shirts, summer dresses, etc.

Amazon, Nile, Himalayas.

Dawn and dusk.

Columbus, Ohio

18. What is your favorite sport to watch?


19. Who do you think will not tag you back?

I don't do all that tagging stuff; I am far too disorganized, I'm sorry to admit! I have pioneered the art of the HIPPIE MEME: do it if you want to, don't bother with it if you don't. :)

20. Person you expect to tag you back first?

See above.

21. Who are you most curious about their responses to this?

I'm curious about most folks, one reason I enjoy blogging and reading other blogs.

22. Bird watcher?

Not as much as I would like. I've been to a couple of bird refuges though, and they were fabulous.

23. Are you a morning person or a night person?

Night. I blame my parents, the musicians, who gave me bad habits.

24. Do you have any pets?

Two cats; one is still a baby all curled up and purring on my lap as I type. :)

25. Any new and exciting news you’d like to share?

My Senator, Lindsey Graham, voted to confirm Sonia Sotomayor! ((faints))

Ohhh, wait... you mean PERSONAL news? Afraid not. :(

26. What did you want to be when you were little?

A musician, like my parents.

27. What is your best childhood memory?

Halloween with my friends, also a particularly sweet Thanksgiving with my stepfather's family in Navarre, Ohio. (Also, as I've said here before, I loved the drive-in!)

I have lots of great memories of my mother and stepfather's band; I was so proud of them.

28. Are you a cat or dog person?


29. Are you married?

For over 21 years. :)

30. Always wear your seat belt?


31. Been in a car accident?

Once with my mother as a kid; and four times as an adult while driving.

Two were my fault, two were theirs...

32. Any pet peeves?

Mostly work-related, can't really discuss here. (customer behavior)

One thing I will say: If you change your mind and decide not to buy something, how about you put it back where you FOUND IT instead of, say, sticking it back in the cracker aisle so it can rot, only to be discovered a year later during inventory?

Waste not, want not, etc.

33. Favorite Pizza Toppings?

Cheese, cheese and more cheese.

34. Favorite Flower?

Azaleas, as my regulars readers are no doubt quite aware!

Taco Bell.

I just received a link to an anti-Lou Dobbs/birther petition from

39. Which store would you choose to max out your credit card?

Loose Lucy's, my local Deadheads. Also, Horizon Records.

When not totally bogged down in dumb-ass retail make-work bullshit like planograms and inventory, yes.

48. How many are you tagging for this quiz?

The entire world can consider itself tagged.

49. What time did you finish this quiz?

About 4:45 pm. (If I'd known you were gonna ask the time, I woulda tried to be a bit faster.)

50. Coffee Drinker?

Ohhhh you betcha, passionately! I prefer The Fresh Market brand(s), freshly ground and brewed. :)

Every autumn, I look forward to their pumpkin spice coffee, my all-time favorite, especially if served with real cream. ((faints from wonderfulness))


If you have the time and/or the wherewithal, consider yourself tagged!

I love your answers :)
It could be mine answers .... LOL
Its our age (an old hippie) HEHE
Me to ;)

Tiaras said...

good to know these things about you

Rachel said...

AMEN to the putting things back where they's not that hard. besides, just because you don't want to buy it doesn't mean no one else does...and if you put a refrigerated thing in the non-refrigerated aisles to spoil, it's just thoughtless. Best that can gets thrown out, worst that can happen...someone else returns it to the refrigerated section for someone else to buy and eat and get food poisoning off of...

anyway...nice post. I'll tag myself tomorrow, lol. :)

Daisy said...

Daisy's "mom" here:
Have you tried Morningstar Black Bean patties? If you put it on a toasted bun with cheese and tomato and avocado and salsa, it's delicious!

Dina said...

I love reading these things!

I'm not much of a breakfast person, but do it every so often.

I don't think I'm Kapha though.

K.C. Jones said...

Morningstar's black bean patties are delicious! In fact, I'm going to do a blog post about how wonderful they are soon! lol Well, the post is mainly about a topping I made using vegetables from my mom's garden...

KC and Daisy, I love making "cheeseburgers" out of the Morningside Farms Black bean burgers... you are both 100% correct, they are delicious.

Now, need to add the salsa and tomato...
