A Meme in Five Parts: Act IV

31. Favorite day of the week?
Saturday. Or holidays that fall on Mondays.

32. Favorite restaurant?
Duh? Ti Couz? (San Francisco at 16th and Valencia), of course, followed closely by Rice (Washington, D.C., at 14th and R) and Blue (in the Castro.)

33. Favorite flower?
Gerbera daisy, Stargazer lilies, dandelions, and waterlilies.

34. Favorite ice cream?
Baskin & Robbins Mint Chocolate Chip, Ben & Jerry’s Oatmeal Cookie Dough, the cinnamon ice cream at Moorenko's over in Silver Spring, Maryland.

35. Favorite fast food restaurant?
On the west coast, In-n-Out Burger. On the east coast, Five Guys & Fries.

36. How many times did you fail your driver's test?
Zero. And I’m a master at parallel parking! According to my friend, Ms. Swizzies, I have a “wonderful sense of proximity.” I like that!

37. From whom did you get your last email?
Depends on which email account you’re asking about. If it was work, it was the director of our PAC, asking me to book travel for him. If it was my main AOL account, it was spam. If it was my second AOL account, it was an email from my friend, Rio Grande Valley Girl. If it was the email account for this blog, it was the last comment posted by Di. I have too many email accounts. No wonder why my life is so complicated: too many attachments/strings…. One day, I’m gonna simplify and get rid of all of them.

38. Which store would you choose to max out your credit card?
That’s a tough one. It’s a toss up between the Apple store, Brooks Brothers, any bookstore, and Target. I could do serious damage in any one of those.

39. Bedtime?
If I was smart, no later than 10:30. I’m not very smart though, so it’s usually 12:00 or later. Even on school nights. (This isn’t the norm, though. When I’m in a job that actually matters, I go to bed early.)

40. Who are you most curious about their responses to this?
At my age, I’m increasingly less and less curious and more and more a mind-my-own-business type of gal, so the answer would be, I’m not curious at all. But if you do play along, let me know. Wait. I just contradicted myself there, didn't I? Well, at my age, I'm allowed.

Next weekend will see the final act of this Meme in Five Parts. Stayed tuned to hear the Dirty Bastard Cat, Pee-oh-gee-oh, say, "Phfffft. Hiss. Hiss!"

My answer to #38 is Apple, too!

I love your list Tewkes

Cinnamon ice cream? oooh it sounds too good.

Phoebe: I'm in a serious conundrum right now. I can't decide whether to buy an iPod classic, nano or iTouch. And, of course, really, really, really want the new iPhone, but I'm waiting for them to up the gigs significantly, before I jump into that little investment. I LOVE MY MAC!!!

Cele: The cinnamon ice cream is muy yummy. Come on out. We'll take in a few Dead Guy Memorials and some ice cream at Moorenko's. (I just found the name and added a link to the meme.)

Ms Swizzies said...

Mmmm, memes are good. I love it. Oatmeal cookie dough is an ice cream now?? OMG. *drool*

And I'm certain I said "amazing" not "wonderful" - I don't normally use the latter. Who knows, though - jet lag might have altered my vocabulary just that bit.

Ms Swizzies said...

PS? You really ARE an AMAZING parallel parker. Unreal.

ms swizzies said...

Oh wait - one more. I thought it was pee-oh-gee-ee-aay-ewe-eks...?

j.m. tewkesbury said...

Ms. Swizzies: My memory is sucky, too, since I'm trying to remember a quote from oh-so-many-weeks-ago. I'll take 'amazing' or 'wonderful'--I'm not picky! ;-)

Yes, oatmeal chocolate chip cookie dough. Yum. It also has a hint of cinnamon that is quite tasty!

It's Pee-Oh-Gee-Oh for short. On his papers, it's Pee-oh-gee-ee-ai-ewe-ex the Red.

I'm sad we're so far from an In-N-Out. I'll have to search out oatmeal cookie dough ice cream as a consolation prize.

When you come visit (like how I assume it will happen?), we'll tour the Blue Bell ice cream factory.

Lee P. told me how A. got a pedestrian name past the hoity toity review board by spelling it all French. Heh, heh. I never bothered registering P.K. I don't know that Pataskala would have passed muster.
