1. What’s the scariest thing that’s ever been in your yard?
Not much scary has been in my current yard. Probably this guy, I guess:
He really wasn’t that scary, but he was missing a leg and his tail. And I have a history with opossums.
Scariest thing ever was a drive-by shooter when we lived in North Carolina (oddly also part of the opossum back story). I guess not technically in my yard. But close enough, since two bullets came through the front wall of my house.
2. Beards. Thumbs up or thumbs down?
Thumbs definitely up.
I love the beard. Though I loved the bald too.
3. If stuff breaks, can you fix it?
Some stuff. I can manage a hammer, most small and some larger power tools, a needle and thread (or sewing machine), and crazy glue. However, beyond the sewing and gluing, I usually leave broken stuff to my husband these days.
4. What was your first car?
A Ford Escort I shared with my brother until he went away to college. Kind of like this one but grey and a few years older:
5. How often do you eat out?
Every other week to once a week. My husband and I go on date nights or we go out for a “family date night.” I have a great love of date nights. Also, I go out to dinner with Super Friend sometimes.
6. Why is your hair like that?
Because it’s thick and heavy. And because I don’t know how to do anything else with it. Or I’m too lazy to do anything else (example: I cannot commit to regular visits to the salon, so hair color and short cuts are out).
Heck, sometimes I can’t even manage that^^ and have to go for a bang-free variation.
I didn’t have bangs until December. Prior to that my hair had been the same long-and-straight ‘do pretty consistently since I was about 16. Once in a while I’d try something new, but it was always either pretty awful or more trouble than it was worth.
So I always come back to the basic long and straight. The bangs have been my latest attempt at “something different,” and they seem to be manageable so far.
