Oh Joy, A Meme!

But seriously, you know I love this stuff.  :)  It's insta-blog fodder!  Thanks, Kendall!

1. Were you named after anyone?  Unfortunately not.  My name was going to be Philip, but I turned out to be a girl (oops!).  Then it was Julia, but my mom couldn't think of a middle name, so I became Kathryn Marie.  I hated it as a child, but love it now.  Plain but classy, like me.

2. Do you still have your tonsils?  Nope.  I don't remember anything about it, just that I don't have to clean them out with a bobby pin like my mom (insert ewwww here).

3. Would you bungee jump?  Hmm.  Something about this really bothers me.  It's not the falling, it's the snapping back up part.  But I really, really, REALLY want to skydive!

4. What is your favorite cereal? I have to pick just one?  Cereal is my fall-back meal when I'm too tired to cook.  Warm oatmeal made with milk, cinnamon, and raisins is pretty hard to beat!

5. Do you untie your shoes when you take them off?  Never.  The only shoes I even own with laces are my pink Roos.

6. What is your favorite ice cream?  Toss up between cinnamon and peppermint.

7. What is the first thing you notice about people?  Usually the way they speak.  Are they sweet, rude, arrogant, bubbly, etc.  Second?  Shoes.  I'm always staring at the shoes.

8. What is your least favorite thing about yourself?  Loaded question!  Physically, my nose.  Otherwise, my moodiness.  My Scorpio catches up with me a lot.  I should probably work on my self-esteem, too, but I've been doing that for almost 26 years now to no avail.

9. What was the last thing you ate?  Fruity Cheerios (delicious!) & a spoonful of peanut butter.  :)

10.  What are you listening too right now? A little mix of Etta James, Lauryn Hill, Nina Simone, & Joss Stone.  Retro-soul.

11. Last movie you watched?  Love in the Time of Cholera.  I know, never watch the movie version of a book, but I just had to see how it was done.  Cinematography & music were beautiful, screenplay adaption was AWFUL.  But Javier Bardem made it well worth the $4.99 rental fee!  Every time he would talk about his broken heart, I would tell him (and my empty apartment) "It's ok, Javi, I'll comfort you..."  

12. What did you dream about last night?  That is for me to know!  Some things are best kept to oneself. :)   It's finals time, so I'm sure my recurring nightmare will start weaseling back into my life--you  know, the classic "I totally forgot about the exam until the day of" madness. 

13. What book are you reading? Another unfair question.  Currently, I am boring my way through "Immigration and Citizenship:  Process and Policy."  Sexy.

14. Summer or winter?  Summer weather, but winter food.  Don't get me wrong, summer has all the fresh veggies and fruits on it's side, but nothing is cozier than winter soups, braises, and pies.  But yet I can't function if the temperature is under 70 degrees.  Conundrum...

15. Do you have any special talents?  Absolutely not.  

Alright, your turn!  I tag Lauren & Heather, because they might actually do it.  :)

Love in the Time of Cholera was a great book, I've never seen the movie. Guess I wont?

You're quite welcome Katie.

OK the bobby pin thing is gross as all get out. I felt my stomach clench on that one.

Skydiving is amazing.

Boo on cereal! : P
