1. Do you like blue cheese

Love it. Especially on hot fried chips from The Loop

Have you ever smoked

I smoke Djarum Lights clove cigarettes.

Do you own a gun

The household owns several. I don't have a personal sidearm, though.

Usually vanilla.

Do you get nervous before doctor appointments

Only when they involve needles. And, yes, I'm aware that I have two tattoos.

What do you think of hot dogs

Love them. Best with ketchup, mustard, cheese, and relish. Although I rarely eat them with buns if I'm making them at home.

Favorite Christmas movie

A Christmas Story, the house classic. Or the original cartoon How The Grinch Stole Christmas (the live-action was blasphemy).

What do you prefer to drink in the morning

COFFEE! COFFEE! And then a Mountain Dew. :) Or maybe a Rockstar.

Can you do push ups? 


Do you know the secret to a happy life?

Not living in a place you hate with a man you can't stand. Life in the mountains with beauty everywhere you look.

A pair of cameo earrings that I was given as a gift several years ago. And an opal choker Anissa bought me at Earth Gifts.

Come Down To Me by Saving Jane.

Do you have A.D.D.?

I have a hard time putting my foot down with someone I love when something has to be done, for my sake. Usually I'll just let it go, no matter how badly it hurts me. 

Middle name


Name 3 thoughts at this exact moment?

1) I have to move out of this house before I go out of my mind.

In Asheville. Anywhere in Asheville. With Anissa.

How did you bring in the New Year

*LOL* I don't really remember much of New Year's, to be honest.

Run away to Toronto for a week. Remember what it's like to feel like myself again.

A Cosmo my sister gave me, God help me.

The Best Damn Thing, Call Me When You're Sober, whatever comes to mind.

Favorite girl's name


Favorite boy's name? 


What's in your pocket right now? 

No pockets in this skirt.

My mid-thirties Georgia-born 'normal' country boy boss blaring Fall Out Boy's This Ain't A Scene, This Is An Arm's Race on Brian's IPOD during the overnight reset.

What is your favorite book(s)? 

WAY too many to name. Period.

What is your favorite candy? 

Cadbury Mini Eggs, followed by Godiva (not much on chocolate, really, but...) and anything with creme brulee in it.

Favorite Sports TEAM? 

*looks around confused* Ummmm.... maybe the Maple Leafs? Occasionally? And there's always Scott Hamilton! :D Love that ice skating!

What song do you want played at your funeral? 

Loud-ass ragtime full-brass-band N'awlins-style version of 'When the Saints Go Marching In', followed by The Superman March. If that doesn't sum me up and make them laugh through tears, nothing will.

I don't have to work today, do I?

Oh I adore Scott Hamilton! :D
Lois: Lois Perry Familykalalanekent on March 22nd, 2008 02:50 am (UTC)
Oh, Lea, yet another of the million reasons I love you! And can that man pick songs for his sets? *dies and iz ded*
Loony Loopy Lea Lovegoodchickadilly on March 22nd, 2008 02:51 am (UTC)
Have you ever seen his 'Hair' routine? It's hilarious!

Lois: Lois Delighted Grinkalalanekent on March 22nd, 2008 02:55 am (UTC)
Actually, I think that was one of the first routines by him I ever saw! I was laughing so hard. I may have to look that up on YouTube...

*giggles at the memory*
Loony Loopy Lea Lovegoodchickadilly on March 22nd, 2008 02:57 am (UTC)
I actually can remember when he won his gold medal and he stood on the podium and cried. I was crying too! (Man, I'm old. LOL)

I've always liked him - not only is he incredibly talented but he seems very down to earth and positive.

Hee. Found it.

Lois: Lois Delighted Grinkalalanekent on March 22nd, 2008 03:00 am (UTC)
I can't remember anything about him that wasn't wonderful, really. I'd really love to meet him. He just makes you smile.
Loony Loopy Lea Lovegoodchickadilly on March 22nd, 2008 03:05 am (UTC)
I'd love to meet him too! I have a friend who is really big into figure skating (fan not an actual skating - er, I mean she's not an actual skater ) who has met him a few times and says he's really just as nice in person as he seems to be.

I love listening to him when he announces - it's fun to hear how excited and passionate her gets about it.

**gasp** Why didn't I think of ice skating when I filled this out?
Lois: Lois Kal-El Laughkalalanekent on March 22nd, 2008 03:15 am (UTC)
Well, when the only sports you follow are gymnastics and ice-skating (a tiny bit of hockey here and there), it quickly comes to mind, Sam.

And after reading yours, you have my permission to kill your mother. *hugs you tight* Sammy Sue? *winces, swats at your mom*
Samantha: Superman: Wish I Could Flysasusc on March 22nd, 2008 08:03 am (UTC)
The sad thing is, I used Sammy Sue for my photobucket account. **hangs head** I hadn't thought up Sasusc until after I made an account there. Although with my mother's name (Cindee Louise), it fits with her nickname: Cindee Lou Who and Sammy Sue Who. **rolls eyes**

I use to watch gymnastics and ice-skating alot--my mom use to tape them whenever they came on. I haven't had the chance to watch them lately. I miss it.
Lois: Lois Shockedkalalanekent on March 23rd, 2008 01:16 am (UTC)
Although with my mother's name (Cindee Louise), it fits with her nickname: Cindee Lou Who and Sammy Sue Who. **rolls eyes**

*shudders with horror and just holds you tight*
Samantha: Superman: Clark and Shocked Jimmysasusc on March 23rd, 2008 04:57 am (UTC)
Trust me, the horror doesn't end there with the Dr. Seuss names. "Sam I Am, I don't eat green eggs and ham." And I usually try to recite the book when ever people call me Sam I Am. **shakes head** My momma was excited several months ago when she found a "Sam I Am" t-shirt for me to wear . . .

I'm sure with a name like Lois, you don't nicknames like that.
Lois: Lois Beautifulkalalanekent on March 24th, 2008 06:15 pm (UTC)
Actually, the funny thing is that I get nicknames like Lola and Lolita. One of the nurses to worked with called me Little Lo the whole time she knew me. I can at least say I like my nicknames. :D

*headdesk over the 'Sam I Am' t-shirt* Although I really need a Lois t-shirt. That would be great!

First off, ROFL at your icon! That's why she jumped back so fast. *giggle*

Good choices of music you got there, doll! AND ROFL for the Superman March! I'd do that too and have everyone march in!
Lois: Clark Lois First Impressionskalalanekent on March 23rd, 2008 01:15 am (UTC)
I think this is one of my all-time favorite januaried icons. You should have seen my face when I first saw that one. I hurt from laughing so hard!

And I love the thought of those two being played. Remember me with love and laughter. I may be an Emo little Goth girl, but I want laughter with the tears. I'm half tempted to record something to be listened to or viewed at the service. I've already told Anissa what two quotes I want on my 'memory plaque'.

Another reason to move to NC: You can have old-skool tombstones there.
Trekkie6trekkie6 on March 24th, 2008 05:05 am (UTC)
I know what I want on my Tombstone. Pepperoni and sausage, heh heh.

*heads to the kitchen*

Obsessed fangirl: Lois and Clark - STM That's Clark nice!babettew54 on March 22nd, 2008 08:46 pm (UTC)
Good answers, hon. Some of these are pretty easy, but most seem hard to answer. I love ice skating too, always have. And please tell me what the heck is a 'Djarum Lights clove' cigarette?!!
Lois: Lois Weaknesskalalanekent on March 22nd, 2008 09:01 pm (UTC)
Oh! The Djarum Lights are the brand that both me and my Lois currently smoke. I could explain, but the link is easier:

ellalou73 on March 22nd, 2008 11:43 pm (UTC)
I liked your answer to number 48, Superman..can I steal that idea??? Hows your weekend off going???
Lois: Lois Reporterkalalanekent on March 23rd, 2008 01:10 am (UTC)
You're more than welcome to, sweetie. I think my Daddy busted a gut when I told him my plans on that front a few months back!

And very good so far. Anissa made me a home-made seafood buffet that I'm going to post about later. Several films are planned to be viewed and we'll be working on the last two chapters later tonight. I'm pretty laid-back right about now.

Thanks for asking!
