I did this survey a long time ago, even before J-land was discovered, but I thought it would be fun to do again.  Thanks to Headin' South and Miss Kitty for hooking me up with it again.  (I love surveys, its the only time I get all the answers right!)

1. What color are your kitchen plates?
Uhhhh, hang on a second, let me wash one and I'll check.

2. What book are you reading?
"Dustbunnies for Dummies"

3. What's on your mouse pad?
Mossy Oak Camoflaug (compliments of RealTree)

4. What's your favorite board game?
Axis and Allies, but I'm a sore loser and end up blowing up the winners so nobody will play with me anymore.

5. Favorite magazine?
Newsweek (yes, really!)

6. Favorite smell?
The  Pacific Ocean

7. Least favorite smell?
The sanitation treatment plant down the way on a hot summer day.

8. What's the first thing you think of when you wake up in the morning?
"How much longer can I lay in bed before I have to HAVE TO get up..."

9. Least favorite color?
Chartruse (puke green)

10. How many rings before you answer the phone?
2... I don't want to seem too desparate for company.

11. Future child's name?
Jesus2, cos the only way thats ever gonna happen is through some act of God!

12. What is most important in life?
Life is so fragile so I try to live each moment like its going to be my last... no regrets!  So if I snag the last piece of cheesecake, forgive me because I may never get another piece before I die!

13. Favorite sound?
Got 2 favorites.... the sound of the rain, and the sound of children (preferrably sleeping children)

14. Chocolate or vanilla?
I graduated from Chocolate to Vanilla last year.

15. Do you sleep with a stuffed animal?
Kind of... my husband is overstuffed and somewhat of an animal.  And I do have a favorite grasshopper thing that I use as a pillow sometimes.

16. Storms: Cool or scary?
 I love storms!

17. What type of car was your first car?
'65 Mustang, but I didn't have my license yet so I didn't get to drive it before my husband broke it and sold it.

18. If you could meet one person dead or alive?
I would definitely rather meet a person who was alive than someone who was dead.  One person I wish I could have met before he died was John Denver, my favorite poet.  I would like to meet Maya Angelou.

19. What's your birthday?
September 13.... AD... (after dinosaurs)

20. Do you eat the stems of broccoli?
Everything but the roots!

21. If you could have any job, what would it be?
I would love to just drive around and take photographs... and get paid for it!

22. If you could have any color hair, what would it be?
I kind of wish I could have the hair I did when I was a teenager... it was streaked from the sun and was so pretty.  People actually used to ask me where I got it done, they couldn't believe it was natural.  Now they believe... my streaks of gold and copper are white and silver.  FYI I've never colored my hair before, but may some day soon, so people at work will quit pulling out my white hairs.

23. Have you ever been in love?
Only once, and I married.  I don't think I could go through this twice.

24. Is the glass half full or half empty?
Half empty... how 'bout topping it off for me?  Or... half full, don't stop, fill'er up!

25. What are your favorite movies?
Oh... HORROR FLICKS!  Haven't seen any really good ones lately though.

26. Do you type with your fingers on the right keys?
Yea, but it slows me down.  I took 2 years of typing in high school, then worked as a typesetter after I graduated... so its kind of a bad habit of mine.  (back then 55 wpm was considered good, can you believe that?)

27. What's under your bed?
Need you ask... 8 generations of Dust Bunnies of course!

28. What's your favorite number?
13, the day of my birth (plus I like to be contrary).

29. What's your single biggest fear?
I fear only the thought of outliving any of my children.  That and being forced on a low carb, low fat, low cholesteral diet.  Heck, I'm only 5'2, isn't that low enough?

30. Say one nice thing about the person who send this to you.
I stole this from some other journals, but I linked them so maybe they'll forgive me. 

31. Favorite CD?
John Denver's Greatest Hits

32. Pen or Pencil?  (this was on the original one I  did)Pencil... I make a lot of mistakes, but I still like to be neat.

33. Hamburgers or hotdogs?
Hamburger, from the grill, with cheese, mustard, lettuce, tomato and onions... and a bun of course, not of those silly Burger King bunless burgers for me!

34. Favorite soft drink
Dr. Pepper straight, Coke as a mixer

35. The best place you have ever been?
Camp Pupukea, in Hawaii's North Shore. I used to spend hours up there under the ironwood pines with the wind playing harmony to my guitar.

36. Screen saver on your computer right now?
No screensaver, but my wallpaper is Remington, with a black lab on a boat with duck decoys.  My secondary wallpaper (yes, I switch according to my mood) is a Corona beach scene.)

37. Cat or dog?
Ferret?  But I want a dog soooo bad!

38. White holiday lights or colored holiday lights?
Colored lights, and then when I take my glasses off they glimmer like jewels.
