Stupid Nosy Stuff

I used to love these things. I love the tidbits you uncover about people, especially the things in common — OMG Yellow is your favorite color too!?! or the unbelievable things about others, like, someone actually hates rice?!? Is that even a thing?

Josh did this the other day, and I wanted to have a go.

  • What time is it where you are?
  • What one superpower do you wish you could have?
    Unbreakable Immune System
  • Are you lonesome tonight?
    Today? Ever? No.
  • What are you wearing?
    One of The Mister’s old shirts and jeans. Aren’t you lucky I’m going out today? Hah.

    lookin like my father today

    lookin like my daddy today…

  • Any big plans for the weekend?
    Yes! I’m not going to set an alarm for two whole days! Oh the sleep I will sleep!
  • Are you in love?
    I am. It’s terrible.
  • Do you have a crush?
    No, I have dozens. I have boy crushes and girl crushes and intellectual crushes and voice crushes and music crushes and writer crushes and you just would not believe how crush-y I am.
  • Does that person know?
    No, none of them know. That’s kinda how crushes work.
  • If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would it be?
    Someplace colder. Someplace where I wear many layers and clutch hot coffee and the wind whips my hair. I bet Maine is nice right now. Nova Scotia. Argentina. Antarctica. No, not Antarctica, I’ve not heard anything good about the food there…
  • What one book would you most want to read on a deserted island?
    A book about the slow demise of anyone who would ask this sorta question
  • Cats, dogs, or both?
    Both. I am a cat person though. I think I may actually require a cat in order to live. But I love dogs. Especially my dog. My dog is the best dog ever.

    she does not look like her daddy...

  • Favorite time of year?
    I like any time the highs are in the 50’s and the lows are in the 20’s, precipitation is a plus. Fall is nice, but right now it’s still in the freakin 80’s.
  • Favorite hobby?
  • Do you get along with your parents?
    Mostly. The three of them are all very deeply flawed whereas I am perfect.
  • Do you believe in love at first sight?
    Yes and No. I think there’s a soul’s recognition sometimes and sometimes that might lead to romance and even lifelong romance, but I also think sometimes it’s a thunderbolt of attraction, because lemme tell you, people know what they want as soon as they see it.
  • What is the most embarrassing thing you’ve ever done?
    I slid about six feet down an icy sidewalk at the crowded shuttle bus stop on McKinley Avenue, skirt over my head. Like a skirt bouquet, whoosh!
  • What has been your greatest accomplishment so far?
    Survival? I dunno.
  • Are you missing anybody right now?
    Yes. I miss everyone, because no one is here right now.
  • What do you want to be when you grow up?
    Super old and wrinkly, like white-haired with crosshatch skin, but with clear eyes and capable, if twisted, hands
  • Do you have a celebrity crush?
    Yeah — but not like, screaming, shrine building, obsessive crushes…

    Skirt bouquet? Perfect embarrassing visual there!

    I like your answer to the desert island question the best so far. It also sounds like we should move to the same sort of place, given we both like that kind of seasonal weather.

    I’m with you on Antarctica, I figure a steady diet of seal, penguin, and sea-bird (when you can catch one) would get tired real fast.

    What a precious post. The questions were typical and just slightly intrusive but your responses were quite lovely. And I do not think you are neurotic. Or too much so anyway. Any pics of your “skirt bouquet”? Great line.

    Still warm here in Ontario, not sure about Nova Scotia. Nunavut. That’s where you wanna go. I noticed you said “holding” a hot coffee, not drinking it. How long does it take for a coffee to cool down? 😉
    You must have been a picture at that bus stop. I feel for you my dear.

  10. I have never heard such an answer as “unbreakable Immune System” for superpower, but how smart is that.
    Love the visual of “skirt bouquet”!

  12. Very entertaining. The Antarctica thing might be universal, which must be embarrassing for those people who actually live there. Let’s face it, the penguins are adorable and that must be a start. I won’t even mention the skirt thing because I wouldn’t want to embarrass you any further . Hope you have a lovely weekend 🙂

    This was a collection of Awesome facts and “Joey Trivia!!” I enjoyed the photos of your adorable dog and you should change your gravatar to this photo. You look so relaxed and like always, so young!
    I am still ” learning” about love and I hope to have what you called a “thunderbolt” someday. 🙂
    Lastly, Joey, yes the favorite book to read on an island would be like the “Seven” movie only done to any nosy persons who ask intrusive questions, Joey.

      You’ve never had a thunderbolt? How can this be?!? If you really haven’t, maybe you won’t. Or maybe it will knock you over! Maybe you should brace yourself! lol
      Thanks for the compliments! 🙂

    Now I know more of the little things. Great sharing, Joey. I really like this photo of you looking like your dad. It’s so real.
