What about You?

I've always been a psychology buff and and I thought the answers to these questions can reveal a lot about a person. I found it on another blog, so I thought I'd share a few more of my quirks with you. This blogging is a strange thing. I've revealed more about myself since December '05 when I started blogging than I ever have in my life.

1. Do you sleep with your closet doors opened or closed? Closed. Otherwise I feel like somebody can sneak up on me.
2. Do you ever take the soaps and shampoos from hotel rooms? Yup, they are there for me and they throw them out if the seal is broken anyhoo. I don't raid the maid's cart or anything, just take what's in my room.
3. Have you ever had sex in a hotel room? I started to leave this one out, but hey, I have two kids, so you guess the answer to this one.
4. Have you ever stolen a street sign? Uh, no. It wouldn't go with my landscaping.
5. Do you use post-it notes? Constantly. I love them. My girlfriend gave me a big bag of them she got at the business fair and I was Sooo happy!
6. Do you cut coupons out but never use them? Always. My intention is good, but my follow through stinks.
7. Would you rather be attacked by a bear or a swarm of bees? A bear. I have a plan. I've taken a lot of kickboxing classes to prepare for the moment.
8. Do you always smile for pictures? Yup. My "alluring, serious" look always makes me look like a weirdo.
9. What is your biggest pet peeve? Dirty fingernails & toenails on anybody, especially my kids.
10. Do you sleep with your sheets tucked in or out? In. Otherwise you are buried from the waist up in sheets and your feet are naked, and that is really annoying.
11. Have you ever peed in the woods? Oh, I have on my one and only backpacking trek with Hero Guy deep into the Adirondack forest. Which is why we now camp at campgrounds with proper toilets.
12. Do you chew on your pens or pencils? No, I prefer my hangnails.
13. What is your favorite animal and why? I love monkeys because they do all the hilarious gross things that humans can't get away with.
14. Do you like popcorn from those big tins? No, I like the microwave mini-popcorn bags. The tins always have stale popcorn in them. I will put up with the cheese flavored, though. It's kind of addicting.
15. Could you marry the person you are with right now? You betcha, baby. I'd do it again.
16. Is is okay for a guy to wear pink? For sure, but Hero Guy wiggles away whenever I try to get him into that pink polo shirt.
17. Do you still watch cartoons? Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends is the newest introduction my kids have given me. I prefer the Flintstones, though.
18. Where would you bury hidden treasure if you had it? In the most obvious place I could think of so nobody would look there.

Everyone in my family can curl their tongue except me. No matter how hard I try I just can't do it. Also my favorite cookie when I can get them is the Snickerdoodle too.
