Today over at the DSMA they have suggested that the DOC get to know each other better by answering the following 48 questions. Inspired by Meri at OurDiabetic Life, I thought I would share my answers here on my blog to let you all know a bit about me. Feel free to re-post on your own blog or twitter!
1. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE?
2. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED?
Last Thursday during a long and stressful day.
3. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING?
I used to like my handwriting when I was in High School, when we wrote instead of used computers. Ever since computers have taken over my handwriting has gone downhill. I print most of the time so I can read my own writing. It is shameful.
4. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH MEAT?
Roasted chicken or genova salami (or both together)
5. DO YOU HAVE KIDS?
No human children, just two adorable fuzzy Westies called Basil and Kasper.
6. IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON, WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU?
I am pretty sure I would be. I am pretty easy going and like to have fun. Also everyone needs to have at least one friend that is a ginger…right?
7. DO YOU USE SARCASM A LOT?
Not a lot, but enough.
8. DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS?
I do and wish I did not. For years they put me through torture. Apparently not enough torture to have them removed.
9. WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP?
Not a chance. I would consider sky diving for some reason though, tandem of course. The thought of tossing myself off a platform head first only to be whipped back into the air does not fill me with joy, it fills me with terror.
10. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CEREAL?
It used to be Cheerios or Shreddies (loved both the same amount). Unfortunately since being diagnosed Type 1 diabetic and celiac I cannot eat the stuff. I have tried all sort of gluten free cereals and no matter what my blood sugar spikes. So I gave up.
11. DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF?
Always! This is one of the things my Dad drove into my head.
12. DO YOU THINK YOU ARE STRONG?
I know I am.
13. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ICE CREAM?
I don’t eat ice cream much anymore as it also plays havoc with the blood sugars, but I always loved plain old chocolate ice cream. Also ice cream cake.
