A Meme for Me

For those of you who don't already know, a meme, in terms of blogs at least, is a list of personal factoids about the blogger. Bloggers will "tag" other bloggers for a meme. Sad, but true, no one has tagged me. I know, I can't believe it either. I feel so unloved by the blog world. In any case, my friend Hayley, from high school, recently emailed me a Fwd with questions to answer about myself. So here goes:

1. What is your occupation? Financial Services Marketing Research

2. What color are your socks right now? pink and white striped

3. What are you listening to right now? Bruce Springsteen's "Brilliant Disguise" when I began this, Joni Mitchell's "Big Yellow Taxi" when I finished this meme

4. What was the last thing that you ate? Candy coated mints that I found in a purse when I was organizing (they were only 1 month old)

5. Can you drive a stick shift? no (a guy tried to teach me in his truck in the high school parking lot, but you can guess how that turned out)

6. What color would you be, if you were a color? lavender

7. Last person you spoke to on the phone? my mom

8. Do you like the person who send this to you/tagged you? yes

9. How old are you today? 32

10. Favorite drink? Dark & Stormy

11. What is your favorite sport to watch? Red Sox baseball

12. Have you ever dyed your hair? Yes, red, twice (plus the sun-in summer)

13. Pets? a 5 year old tabby cat named Mercury (so named because her purr is so loud it sounds like an outboard motor and Evinrude, Honda, and Yamaha didn't seem like great cat names)

14. Favorite food? ice cream

15. Last movie you watched? On DVD, Something's Gotta Give, in the theater, Juno

16. What do you do to vent anger? deep breaths

17. What was your favorite toy as a child? tough to choose--probably crayons and coloring books

18. What is your favorite, fall or spring? fall

19. Do you want your friends/lurkers to email you back/comment on this meme? Yes

20. Living arrangements? House in the 'burbs

21. When was the last time you cried? watching Juno

22. Favorite smell? pine trees

23. Plain, cheese or spicy hamburgers? cheddar cheese

24. Favorite car? Toyota Prius (and hoping by the time I need one they have a great hybrid minivan)

25. Number of keys on your key ring? 3 keys, 1 clip, and 2 store tags and a library tag

26. How many years at your current job(s)? 2 as of the beginning of January

27. Favorite day of the week? Saturday I guess

28. How many states have you lived in? 5--if you include summer camp--all of them in New England (Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Vermont, Connecticut, Massachusetts)

Oh, and if you have never been tagged for a meme, consider yourself tagged!
