Look, Ma! I Did It!

I've been tagged. And guess what! I'm actually going to play. I know I have a few others out there, and I promise that I'll get to them. But as I thought about myself I realized that being tagged for me is like my email: if I don't respond immediately, who knows when I'll find (make) the time to do it. That goes for all of you with email you've been waiting months for a response. Sorry!

Anyway, thanks Steph!

The rules?
Answer the following questions in one word and then pass it on to seven others. Anyone who's ever read a post of mine knows that one word and I don't generally go together in the same sentence. Or paragraph, for that matter. But I'm going to try to keep it short at least. Is that close enough?

Where is your cell phone? Pocket

Where is your significant other? Chair

Your hair color? Brunette? (Is it sad that I don't know what color to call it?)

Your mother? Overinvolved (but well-intentioned)

Your father? Changing

Your favorite thing? Happiness

Your dream last night? Unknown (I've discovered that I don't dream on nights I don't get
enough sleep)

Your dream/goal? Happiness (for everyone I care about)

The room you’re in? Family

Your hobby? Yoga (are moms allowed hobbies? I really had to think about this one)

Your fear? Failing (sorry, couldn't change that one)

Where do you want to be in 6 years? Happy (raise your hand if you're sensing a theme)

Where were you last night? Yoga

What you’re not? Artistic

One of your wish-list items? Heart-rate-monitor (and my birthday is less than two weeks away for anyone who's still searching for a gift!) ;)

Where you grew up? All over (IL, CT, Belgium, IL, MN, OH...)

Last thing you did? Uhhh (I don't remember. It's been a long day, and I'm tired. What did I do before I sat down? No idea. None at all)

What are you wearing? Clothes (aren't you glad I said that?)

Your TV? Tivo'ing

Your pet? Cats (two of them, in fact... Meow and Roar -- any guesses who named them?)

Your computer? Dell (technically that's my work's computer, but it's the one I use 99.9% of the time... the home one is a made to order one)

Your mood? Tired

Missing someone? No (I feel like I should say yes to this)

Your car? Pilot

Something you’re not wearing? Earrings (whoops... I just realized I didn't put them back on!)

Favorite store? BHWM (see, I kept it to one word... Black House White Market for the uninitiated)

Your summer? Blissful (and I want it back. And I swear I'll take more time off work if I can get it back)

Love someone? Yes (I can't imagine life without love; can you?)

Your favorite color? PURPLE! (specifically, royal purple... and at work on Monday I corrected my direct report when he tried to call Northwestern's color "violet" -- granted his first language is French but still....)

When is the last time you laughed? Today (I have the wee ones... how can I not laugh daily or hourly?)

Last time you cried? Friday (while watching Ghost House. Is that truly pathetic?)

Check it out! Technically, I answered each one in only one word. Of course, I had to add some clarifications to a few of them. Does that break the rules, or can I bask in my succinctness for a moment?

And for tags...

Interesting. (I assume I'm limited to one word too?)

MaBunny November 14, 2008 at 4:34 PM  

Oh goodness Michelle, I've done this once in an email and it was fun:) Okies will do it for todays post....

WeaselMomma November 14, 2008 at 6:18 PM  

Oh, you so cheated! But this was a fun read.

AutoSysGene November 14, 2008 at 6:45 PM  

I'll try to get to this one soon.

AutoSysGene November 14, 2008 at 6:45 PM  

I'll try to get to this one soon.

Michelle November 14, 2008 at 7:11 PM  

J Cosmo Newbery - Absolutely... and I like how you used my theory of parens to complete the thought! ;)

Mabunny - I saw yours... it was much cleaner than mine!

Weaselmomma - I saw no cheating. Each was a one word answer. Don't you know that words inside parens don't count?

Melissa - Thanks! :) Can't wait to see what you ahve to say!

Kellan November 14, 2008 at 10:17 PM  

I'm thinking about taking up yoga - never have done it, but I think it would be fun and do me some good!

Have a great weekend - Kellan

Michelle November 15, 2008 at 10:06 AM  

Kellan - Go for the yoga! It's a really great stress reliever, even when you "aren't any good." I've been doing it for a long time and can barely touch my toes by the end of class. I'm simply not flexible at ALL in my hamstrings, and it's all ok. It's not about being super flexible but about your mind and focus while in your practice and just doing what you can correctly while you do it (e.g., don't cheat to try to get further). Go try a class somewhere (and if you don't like it, go somewhere else... there are ALL kinds of yoga and instructors, and they're all different).

I absolutely love reading these, I just don't do them. It's such a fun way to get to know someone.

Melisa Wells November 16, 2008 at 4:18 PM  

Ooh yay! I love AND hate getting tagged. :)

But I will get to this in the next couple of days! :)

Michelle November 16, 2008 at 8:18 PM  

Karen - I know... reading them is usually so entertaining. And ummm I almost never do them. Not because I don't want to but just because I forget. Repeatedly.

Melisa - I'm right there with you on that sentiment! Good luck ;)

Cookie November 16, 2008 at 10:37 PM  

I think you cheated with more than one word! :P

Michelle November 16, 2008 at 11:06 PM  

Cookie - Cheated? I did no such thing! Don't you know what words inside parens don't count?

Mom November 19, 2008 at 10:29 AM  

Wow you did it and in one word for most of them :) thanks for playing along

Michelle November 19, 2008 at 10:19 PM  

Steph - What do you mean most of them? Weren't they ALL one word? Sorta? Maybe? Just a little bit? :)
