Since I'm feeling lazy . . .

. . . it's a quiz day. When I was a kid I wanted to be a teacher because I thought grading papers was the coolest. When I was older I wanted to be a teacher because I thought randomly springing quizzes on punk teenagers would be all kinds of fun. I eventually decided not to follow a teaching path, much to the disappointment of therapists everywhere.

Anyway. The quiz.

1. What is your full name? Miss Nemesis
2. Where do you live right now? Provo, UT, for the next 39 days
3. What are you listening to right now? The gentle hum of flourescent office lighting. If I decide to mix things up, I might put in my new Wicked soundtrack, which is not a burned copy at all.
4. What's the last thing you ate? Ooh! I know this one. Warm blueberry muffins from scratch with fresh blueberries, courtesy of Savvymom. Sorry to anyone who didn't get any, because they were excellent.
5. What are you doing (well, supposed to be doing)? Running a booth (read: playing on my laptop and scowling at people who stop and ask me stupid questions)
6. What are you doing after work today? Hanging out with my Mom and my sister's darling little family. I'm pretty much a party animal.
7. Last live musical concert you attended? Okay, see. I'm really lame when it comes to stuff like this. I hardly ever go to concerts. There was that classical concert I saw up at Sundance a few weeks ago. That was cool.
8. Last person you talked to on the phone? Colin Firth. He wants us to get back together--it was pretty sad. Also he kept crying.
9. Do you like the person who sent you this? Um, no one sent it to me. I stole it from Kelly, but I like her. And even though I didn't ask for permission, that doesn't make me a bad person, okay? OKAY??
10. How old are you today? 25
11. Marital status and are you happy with it? As single as they get. And yeah, I'm happy with it except for the times when I set wedding invitations on fire and consider becoming a baby stealer.
12. Children? Look, I didn't give them up--I gave them more.
13. Pets? I'm kind of responsible for my old roommate's fish, which is probably why the poor thing keeps floating and trying to jump out of the bowl.
14. Siblings? 4
15. What do you do for a living? Rid the world of injustice.
16. Favorite month? Any month with consensual kissing in it.
17. What do you do to vent anger? You probably don't want to know. It isn't pretty. The llamas don't enjoy it much either, poor things.
18. What do you do to relieve stress? Eat food off the sidewalk while breathing deeply.
19. Favorite T.V. show? Ouch, this is hard. My best TV boyfriend right now, though, is Hugh Laurie from "House." Misanthropy has never looked so good.
20. Sexiest man alive in your opinion? Look, I'm too much woman for just one man. That's why I keep a several Brits on retainer. It's kind of like Light the Red Lantern, but without the oppression and cinematography and commentary on Chinese government.
21. What was your favorite toy as a child? Heaven help me, it was probably a book.
22. What was the last book you read? Apache Lover, recommended by Texas Mama. It's a spirited and eloquent cross-cultural romance, according to the Romantic Times.
23. What is your favorite book? I'm pretty sure it would be this one, if I could just find it.
24. If you could own it – beach house or mountain cabin? I get the beach house, Savvymom can get the mountain cabin, Spitfire gets the house-boat. Then we'll switch off. Hah! Got you there, Rules Person!
25. What is under your bed? Spiders, my beautiful new red carry-on suitcase, and my silver stocking holders from Pottery Barn. Oh, like you don't keep yours there too.
26. How many pairs of shoes do you have? I don't know how many I have. I do know that I only wear about 3 pair on a regular basis, including this scummy set of brown sandals that I got at Target about 7 years ago and just can't give up even though they're falling apart.
27. Favorite color? Blue when I'm feeling peaceful and tranquil. Red the other 21 hours of the day.
28. Favorite car? Um, the kind that works and smells nice and doesn't spontaneously catch on fire.
29. If you could go anywhere on vacation next month, where would that be? ENGLAND!! Hah! Hah hah haha hahahahahah!
30. What was the last movie you saw (in the theater)? Batman Begins (Katie--Shut up. Christian--Call me!!)
31. Who is the friend you have had the longest? My therapist.
32. What did you do last night? Ate obsene amounts of Godiva chocolate w/my mom and sister. It's great (and fattening) to be me.
33. What are you doing this weekend? Packing up my books, only about every 15 minutes I will start reading one of them, so it could take awhile. In fact, you may never hear from me again.
34. What inspires you? Grace, Poise, and Snark. And the part on The Sound of Music where the Reverend Mother sings "Climb Ev'ry Mountain." That gets me every time. sniff.
35. What are you afraid of? Sharks
36. Plain, buttered, or salted popcorn? Anything that isn't kettle corn. I hate that stuff.
37. Favorite time of the day? The time when idiots aren't bothering me.
38. Who, of all the people you email this to, won’t respond? Well, I'm not emailing it to anyone. But I hope everyone comments!
39. Number of keys on your key chain? 4
40. Can you juggle? Only if juggling actually means "chasing stupid balls around after they fly out of my hands."
41. Favorite day of the week? Saturday
42. What did you do on your last birthday? I had the Birthday that Kept on Giving last year--it was great. AmyJane & Co. made me a cake, Mistress of Mayhem made me a divine dinner, Savvymom also made me baked goods, and then we all hit the strip clubs.
43. How many provinces/states have you lived in? 5
44. How many cities have you lived in? 9
45. How many countries have you lived in? 3
46. How many cars have you had? 2, but each came with a driver.
47. Pet duck or pet rock? That's a hard one. Ducks are cute, but you really can't/shouldn't throw them through windshields.
48. Any Hobbies? Homeschooling and picking hair out of the carpet.
49. Care to share a secret that no one on your e-mail list knows? I don't know, does your mom care to?
50. If you suddenly became rich what would you do? Move to England, buy an estate, marry an English filmmaker, name our children strange names, and take up horseback riding in some desperate "Look, see? I really am English!" bid. Wait . . .

Oh, you and I have *so* much in common, dear. Except the whole You're Going to England and I'm Not thing...

And the children thing was hysterical.

I'm going to throw a tomahawk at you. You know why.

Hey, are you really still taking care of my fish? ! Give him up for adoption, sell him, eat him, set him on fire, dry him out and use him in your next game of darts for all I care! For heaven's sake give him to somebody or something. Sorry!!!!

oh and I love your quiz, maybe one day I'll actually put something new on my blog, oooh today might just be the day..

This is you on a lazy day? That's fantastic. You're stinkin' hilarious!!

Mary, you are way too kind. And it turns out that it was way harder to fill out this quiz than to just buck up and write something! :-)

2. I think your countdown thing is broken or something, 'cause it don't say nothin' 'bout any 29 days. Somebody wants you to stay home for another six years.
8. Colin told me he wasn't crying--he had a bad cold, and he kept trying to tell you that but you insisted he was crying. He thought that was weird.
18. I recommend Pilates. See if that works out for you better--should help with #27.
23. I'm hurt that you didn't mention that great Kathleen Woodiwiss novel I gave you on your last birthday. So very, very hurt.
33. Does this mean you want all your books back, or are you storing them at my house anyway?
42. What in the heck are "backed goods"?
48. You forgot scrapbooking. You love scrapbooking. You LIVE for scrapbooking.
50. You're not going to come home with some fake accent, are you? Because that really bugs me about her. Not to mention all the other stuff that bugs me about her.

And thank you for not emailing this to everyone. I hate these questionnaire things.

Curse you, daltongirl, with your eagle eye. I hate the spellchecker on this thing, since it doesn't recognize words like "and."

Also, you're supposed to have abdominal muscles to do Pilates, and I don't think I was born with those.

I am SO going to have a fake English--maybe with a little bit of Czech thrown in.

House, M.D. = fantastic. You have impeccable taste in fictional characters.

"I didn't give them up--I gave them more"

Enough said.
