I've seen this one on AD's; LawDog's and Tam's blogs. I didn't get tagged, I just stole it b/c it looked interesting and I'm a wee bit of a narcissist and needed something to fill the space until I can organize my thought for a REAL blog.
So with thanks to all the above bloggers...
WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE? No, both my 'rents liked to take credit for my name. If y'all knew what my "maiden" name was, you'd know why "Holly" is so clever as a first name.
WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED? Friday, while talkin' to my Cousin about my Daddy and my grand'rents.
DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING? Yes, especially my signature.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH MEAT? Smoked Turkey Breast, Bacon
DO YOU HAVE KIDS? One PERFECT specimen of each flavor!
IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU? Absolutely. I try to be a good and true friend to my friends.
DO YOU USE SARCASM A LOT? Me? Sarcastic? I'm too busy bein' blunt, gauche, and totally tactless to be sarcastic.
DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS? Nope, don't have my adenoids, or wisdom teeth either. All other original equipment still intact and under warranty.
WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP? Not until they are able to do complete spinal column transplants, complete with discs.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CEREAL? Don't eat a lot of cereal, but I guess...Raisin Nut Bran for cold cereal and Grits with sharp cheddar for hot cereal.
DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF? Yes. I have to wear a wide width b/c of a Morton's neuroma on my L. foot, but the rest of my foot is much narrower, so I have to tie them tight. Then I HAVE to untie and loosen the laces to take them off. But I wear Crocs "Athens" style flips about 8 months of the year.
DO YOU THINK YOU ARE STRONG? Emotionally, I am a freakin' ROCK. My experiences have made me strong. When my book is finally finished, you'll understand. Physically, only my legs are strong. I HAVE to start working out again.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ICE CREAM? Butter Brickle
WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE? Height. I'm tall, so I notice whether I have to look up, down or straight on to look someone in the eye. And how they shake hands. I don't care if they are a man or a woman, do NOT try to crush my hand, or give me a "dead fish" to shake. I shake hands firmly, gently if it's a frail older lady, and I expect the same in return.
RED OR PINK? Purple or sometimes Green.
WHAT IS THE LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT YOURSELF? Moodiness, procrastination, pickiness, judgementalism, sensitivity, bein' a dilettante, havin' a wicked tongue, maybe bein' too self-critical?
WHO DO YOU MISS THE MOST? Nanny and Daddy
WHAT COLOR PANTS AND SHOES ARE YOU WEARING? Blue jean shorts, turquoise and oyster Croc flips.
WHAT WAS THE LAST THING YOU ATE? Beef Stroganoff
WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW? The hum of the computer, and the drippin' rain outside [again!].
IF YOU WHERE A CRAYON, WHAT COLOR WOULD YOU BE? Magenta, it always seemed like the most DRAMATIC color in the box to me.
FAVORITE SMELLS? Freshly bathed baby's neck; Summer Rain after a long dry spell; Freshly mown grass; Tyler Candles "Texan" variety; freshly baked yeast rolls; puppy breath; melting tar; the Dearly Beloved.
WHO WAS THE LAST PERSON YOU TALKED TO ON THE PHONE? The Dearly Beloved
FAVORITE SPORTS TO WATCH? Live: Baseball, Football and HOCKEY. Televised: NOTHING.
HAIR COLOR[S]? Silver and White.
EYE COLOR? Green.
DO YOU WEAR CONTACTS? No.
FAVORITE FOOD? Lobster and Crab with lots of butter. And scallops with remoulade sauce.
SCARY MOVIES OR HAPPY ENDINGS? Happy Endings, like when Ripley beats the snot out of that Alien bitch and saves the sproglet. Or when the Brothers finally meet their Da' at the end of Boondock Saints.
LAST MOVIE YOU WATCHED? Red October, for the umpteenth time. Gawd, I love Sir Sean and I'm so glad Harrison took over the role of Jack Ryan.
WHAT COLOR SHIRT ARE YOU WEARING? Lavender
SUMMER OR WINTER? Spring, the time of rebirth and reinvention.
HUGS OR KISSES? Both, I give great hug, and love to get all kinds of kisses, except the fishy-lip kind, yuck!
FAVORITE DESSERT? This is HARD. I love dessert. Nanny's Fried Pies would have to top the list, but I will have to wait for heaven to have those again. Room temp Cheesecake with NO frou-frou toppings to clutter up the taste; blackberry cobbler with a 3 layer pie dough crust; the Dearly Beloved's Naner Puddin'.
MOST LIKELY TO RESPOND? Shooter or Speaker Tweaker for bloggers, GBro for commenters.
LEAST LIKELY TO RESPOND? LaPhlegm, she doesn't like MeMe's all that much, and her plate's really full these days, too. [ h/t to g bro for that title for her, btw]
WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING NOW? I'm jumping back and forth between Wacky Chicks for light reading; Women and Guns; and re-reading American Jihad by Steven Emerson, Holy War on the Home Front by Harvey Kushner, and The Trouble with Islam Today by an wonderful woman named Irshad Manji. The rereads are for a series of blogs I'll be doing shortly.
WHAT IS ON YOUR MOUSE PAD? Since the optical mouse died, we went back to needing a pad...got one with a fish eye view of a lab puppy.
WHAT DID YOU WATCH ON T.V. LAST NIGHT? The 4400 season premiere, followed by Army Wives.

ROLLING STONES OR BEATLES? Zevon
WHAT IS THE FARTHEST YOU HAVE BEEN FROM HOME? Rome, Italy - not Georgia.
DO YOU HAVE A SPECIAL TALENT? Yes.
