Cherise (PYT!) fleshed out a little "getting to know you" meme for #dsma, and as my synapses are not properly firing this evening, I'm grabbing this to get the gears going again. (And while it's not a diabetes-centric meme, this one is.)
1. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE?
Not that I know of. But I do know that my father named my brother, my sister, and I. And there isn't any rhyme or symmetry to our names.
2. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED?
I can't remember - I think it was October.
3. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING?
I like it enough. It's suffered tremendously since I started using the computer so much. My signature used to feign legibility. Now it looks like spaghetti strewn about.
4. WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE LUNCH MEAT?
Sliced chicken breast.
5. DO YOU HAVE KIDS?
I have one, and she's my favorite person in the world.
6. IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON, WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU?
I'm fairly certain I'd short-sheet my own bed. (Is that still a thing?)

8. DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS?
9. WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP?
Absolutely effing not.
10. WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE CEREAL?
Golden Grahams. The insulin:cereal ratio is one cartridge:one bowl.
11. DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF? Y
No, but the only shoes I have that tie are my running shoes. The rest slip on. Is this a boring answer? Yes.
12. DO YOU THINK YOU ARE STRONG?
Yes. To a fault, where it starts to blend in with "stubborn."
13. WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE ICE CREAM?
14. WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE?
If they're making eye contact with me or not.
15. RED OR PINK?
Ew - neither.
16. WHAT IS THE LEAST FAVOURITE THING ABOUT YOURSELF?
(Where did that random U show up?) I'm easily distracted and I never ...
17. WHO DO YOU MISS THE MOST?
18. WHAT IS THE TECHNIQUE THAT YOU NEED TO WORK ON THE MOST?
Technique? I need help getting organized. I sometimes think about becoming a thought hoarder so that lady who is the Professional Organizer will come into my brain and settle things.
19. WHAT COLOUR SHOES ARE YOU WEARING?
No shoes. Socks, yo.
20. WHAT WAS THE LAST THING YOU ATE?
Chicken, avocado, and spinach all cooked up nice-nice in the frying pan.
21. WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW?
Trust Me, I'm a Genius by The Family Rain. (Awesome.)
22. IF YOU WERE A CRAYON, WHAT COLOUR WOULD YOU BE?
23. FAVOURITE SMELLS?
Coffee, Birdy's hair after a bath, snow, new car.

Very, but I keep them to myself, for the most part.

Beach. All day.

(There's that U again.) Baseball.

28. EYE COLOUR?
I give up. You are intent upon that U, aren't U? My eyes are blue.
29. DO YOU WEAR CONTACTS?
No. But I have them in my phone.
30. FAVOURITE FOOD?
Mango. And stop. With. The. Ewe.
31. SCARY MOVIES OR HAPPY ENDINGS?

The Promised Land.
33. WHAT COLOUR SHIRT ARE YOU WEARING?
34. SUMMER OR WINTER?
Spring. See also: beach.
35. FAVOURITE DESSERT?
Berries and cream.
36. STRENGTH TRAINING OR CARDIO?
Both. But cardio is my gig at the moment.
37. COMPUTER OR TELEVISION?
Computer, unless I'm watching Breaking Bad. And then it's all Heisenberg on the big screen.
38. WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING NOW?
Sigh ... I wish I had more time to read books. More on that later.

New music. And Birdy's little high-pitched giggle.

Alternative. Which, I don't even know what that means anymore. I like stuff from Europe. Which surprises me that the rogue U in this thread is making my head ache.
42. WHAT IS THE FARTHEST YOU HAVE BEEN FROM HOME?
43. DO YOU HAVE A SPECIAL TALENT?
I can tie a cherry stem in a knot with my tongue. And I bet I could stand on one foot for at least fourteen minutes STRAIGHT.

(And I just figured where the U's came from. I robbed these questions from Ms. Pearlsa.)
