I saw this meme at Zimena's journal.

~~~~~~~


Are you named after someone? the "Jennifer" part of my name is unique in my family, but my middle name was both my mother's and maternal grandmother's. (Alice.)

When was the last time you cried? I don't even remember.

Do you like your handwriting? If I take the time to write neatly, then maybe I like it a little bit. I rarely write like that, though, because it's just too time-consuming.

What is your favorite lunch meat? Probably chicken? Or sausage? It's not like I eat meat for lunch all that much, though.

Do you have kids? Yes. Two. One girl, one boy.

If you were another person, would you be friends with you? I hope so.

Do you use sarcasm? Sometimes.

Do you still have your tonsils? Nope, had them removed when I was 2.

Would you bungee jump? Not by choice but I would if it was to save my life or someone else's.

What is your favorite kind of cereal? I eat cereal every day for breakfast, but never the sugary kind. Puffed rice or granola are my top picks for cold, and oatmeal is my favourite hot cereal.

Do you untie your shoes when you take them off? Nope. I find the way to tie them so that they stay nicely on my foot, yet also come off easily.

Do you think you’re a strong person? I've been told various times that I am, but I don't think so myself.

What is your favorite ice cream? Chocolate or pistachio, as well as any other brown-coloured ice cream, i.e. butterscotch, maple walnut, pralines & cream, chocolate chip cookie dough, etc.

What is the first thing you notice about people? Their hair. Then their faces.

What color pants and shoes are you wearing now? Black capri pants and red sandals.

What are you listening to right now? Wimbledon tennis. Sascha Zverev (whom I dislike intensely) just defeated Offner, another Austrian player.

If you were a crayon, what color would you be? This choice would probably change every day. I LOVE crayons and the names of all the colours. Today I feel yellow ochre would be my favourite.

Favorite smell? Fresh strawberries. Nothing is more evocative of summer.

Who was the last person you spoke to on the phone? My son Jamie.

Favorite sport to watch? Ah. I am a huge sports fan, so it depends what's on and when. I'd have to say football (soccer) is my favourite to watch but I do enjoy many others. Right now it's Wimbledon tennis.

Hair colour? My natural colour used to be light, mousy brown but is now white and grey. When I dyed it it was blonde and I still have a bit of that but have let it go for a few months.

Eye colour? Dark brown.

Do you wear contacts? I used to when I was in my late teens or early 20s. Nowadays I wear glasses. I guess I got tired of fumbling with the contacts every day.

Scary movies or comedy? Scary!!!

Last movie you watched? It was a silly horror movie called "The Windmill" which wasn't actually as bad as some I've seen lately.

What colour shirt are you wearing? Reddish-brown tie-dye.

Summer or winter? I have to say summer even though I hate the heat. But winters are so gloomy. My favourite seasons are actually autumn, then spring.

Hugs or kisses? Both.

What book are you currently reading? Various, but I'm lazy & not making much progress with anything. In front of me are Unfinished Tales by JRR Tolkien, The Perils of the Night by James Runcie (a Sidney Chambers mystery), Northern Soul (a fan's story of Wigan Athletic), American Gods (I feel I'm never going to finish this) and others I haven't opened in quite awhile on my Kindle.

What is on your mouse pad? A map of Westeros from Game of Thrones.

What is the last TV program you watched? "Bordertown", a Finnish crime noir that takes place on the border Finland shares with Russia. The primary character is a forensic psychologist, or profiler. It's very good. I believe it was called "Sorjonen" in Finland, which is the name of the profiler.

What is the best sound? The singing of the birds outside my window in the morning. Also just before the sun goes down at night. I love the sound of mourning doves the best.

Rolling Stones or The Beatles? The Beatles, although I like both groups.

What is the furthest you have ever traveled? Berlin, Germany.

Do you have a special talent? I don't know. I used to be told I was talented at various things in school but at the moment I can't believe I'm talented than anyone else at anything, really.

Where were you born? Vancouver, B.C. in Canada.

That's entertaining! I might do it myself!

Of course, you are strong--raising your grandson! I know what that involves.

Everyone loves Wimbledon, don't they? Strawberries smell lovely. As you say, they are the smell of summer.

Spring and Autumn suit me best too. x

Another autumn-person? YAY!

I love that we have many of the same answers, by the way.

Berlin? Awesome city. One of my favourites that I have visited.

Special talent? You have many. For example, you are a wonderful friend, caring, intelligent, positive and interesting to talk to, because your perspective is different from mine. You're also a fantastic writer! Just to name a few things!

Have a nice day, ok?
