Because I love Jesus...

...and because Fr. R. over at Orthometer gets due response to the "no-name meme" is as follows:

1. Do you wear a name tag at work? No! In order to ensure this would never be the case, I pay monthly law school loan installments that exceed most peoples' mortgage payments

2. What kind of car do you drive? A distinguished (ok OLD!) BMW 740 and/or Volvo XC wagon

3. What do you order when you go to Taco Bell? One bean burrito, sans onion, sour cream added and one of those fried caramel apple pandita (?) things

5. What color is your iPod? U2 special edition, baby! (Red & black)

6. What kind of dog do you have? Golden Retard and Yellow Labradork (well meaning, gentle and sweet but stoo-pid..."no, WE did not get into the garbage that's all over the was the baby....yeah, that's the ticket....oh crap! He can't walk yet?!?")

9. Stupidest thing you ever did with your cell phone? Got into a text war with some stupid skanky teenaged girl who was sure I was her boyfriend, then her boyfriend's new girlfriend, and then I had my Assistant DA friend end it all....awesome....

10. Last time you were sick? Oy. The September "back to school cold" that the kids always get. I know it is only a matter of time before the January version hits.

11. How long is your hair? Collarbone-ish

12. Are you happy right now? Sure. Ask me again later -- I will get my weathervane out.

13. What did you say last? "Oooh! Do you see the kitty cat? The bad, bad kitty cat cat cat?" (Hey -- I have an infant!!!)

14. Who came over last? Aside from the mailman? I think my husband's cousins right after Christmas. (Pathetic, I know...)

15. Do you drink beer? Yes, the darker the better out of respect to my German & Irish forebears.

16. Have your brothers or sisters ever told you that you were adopted? I honestly can't recall...but I was always told that I look so much like my dad, it would never have worked. (FYI, Dad was VERY PRETTY)

18. What did you get for graduation? HS: matched luggage (a.k.a., get the he** out!); college: mom's used Nissan Sentra; law school: bought myself a Coach briefcase -- also got some flowers from my lawyer uncle.

19. Whats in your pocket? Yoga pants have no pockets

20. Who introduced you to Dane Cook? SNL. Not a fan.

21. Has someone ever made you a Build-A-Bear? No. But I have spent stupid sums of money on a few "$12" bears that somehow required $80 worth of accessories. Each. That place is tied for "#1 Most Evil Parent Trap "with Chuck-E-Cheese...

22. What DVD is in your DVD player? Into Great Silence, which I finally watched last night (or maybe Bear in the Big Blue House by now)

23. What's something fun you did today? Stayed home with the baby instead of doing an arbitration brief. Priorities.

27. What are you listening to right now? The Baroque classical channel on XM Radio

28. Drinking? Nothing. Yet.

29. What is your favorite aisle at Wal-Mart? Heebie-jeebies aside...I only go there for baby formula in emergencies (you'd have to see our rural upstate WalMart clientele to fully appreciate that it is not merely snobbery, but public health and safety issues that send me to Target)

39. What is your favorite fruit? You can't beat the versatility of the banana (again with the hungry...)

40. What about your favorite dessert? Oooh. Tough one. Up until recently, there'd have to be chocolate involved, but at the moment, I'd have to say warm apple pie and vanilla ice cream
