Getting to know you, getting to know all about you

I want everyone who reads this to ask me 3 questions, no more no less. Ask me anything you want. Then I want you to go to your journal, copy and paste this allowing your friends (including myself) to ask you anything.

Post the questions in the ‘comments’ area so that everyone can see them and their respective answers.

(I ganked this from Megan, who stole it from Josh.)

  1. Wow. No love this morning. 🙁

    1. Have you ever spent more than five minutes in Huntsville?

    2. What hidden talent do you have that not even Alisa knows about?

    3. How many hours of sleep do you need, per night, to function normally?

  2. What boy do you have a crush on right now?

    Who do you like?

    Who are you interested in?

  3. Geof:
    1. I’ve never spent ANY time in Huntsville. The closest I’ve come is the Cracker Barrel in Madison (where I spent an hour eating dinner with my friend Jessica).
    2. I don’t know if I *have* any hidden talents. My thumb pops kinda funny, does that count?
    3. I prefer to have nine hours of sleep per night. Eight is my minimum, ten my max.

    Adam:
    1. No one.
    2. No one.
    3. No one.
    Game over, play again! 🙂

  4. Questions I don’t already know the answer to…hmmm…

    1. What is your idea of a perfect date? (just for all the boys, ahem Adam, who seem so dadgum interested)

    2. To date friends or to date randoms?

    3. If the population of China were to walk past you single file, how long would it take for the line to end?

  5. Hebs:
    1. My perfect date would consist of dinner at a nice-ish restaurant (aka NOT fast food and not one of those places where you place your order and pick it up from the counter). We’d follow (or precede, maybe) that with a fun activity that involves getting-to-know-you times. Ideally, that activity would GIVE us something to talk about, just in case we got nervous and stumbled over our words. I have said before that the perfect date in this city would be dinner at this one restaurant I’ve been wanting to try followed by coffee and board games at Crimson.
    2. I would prefer to date friends rather than randoms, but depending on the random, I MIGHT give it a shot. (Maybe.) But in the past, *most* of my friends have not been good initiators.
    3. I’m thinking it would take at least half a year for the population of China to walk past me in a single file line. Would I be allowed to move about and do other activities while they walked?

  6. Am I allowed to comment on the answers? Because ACTUALLY the line would never end due to the reproduction rate. :o)

  7. Carla … you know that you, of all people, should do nothing competitive on a date, especially an early date.

  8. Tim

    OK, um….
    1: Where is the furthest point on the globe that you have travelled from your current home?
    2: A guy who has lots of character, but is destined to be poverty line for life (no nice restaurants on first dates) or a guy who is financially stable, but is not overenthusiastic about his faith?
    3: If you could make every adult you knew read three books (excluding the bible, but not excluding commentarys) what would they be?

  9. Geof: Shut it. 😛

    Tim:
    1. San Diego, Calif. or is Los Angeles further? Whichever.
    2. That’s EASY. I’d take the first guy (of course, we’re assuming that Christ is included in and influences that character, right?).
    3. Finding Common Ground by Tim Downs, To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee and The Elements of Style by William Strunk Jr. & E.B. White.

  10. 1. What’s worse, when someone ends a sentence with a preposition, or uses the wrong their/there/they’re?
    2. What is your favorite newspaper to read?
    3. If you could only pick 1 Patty Griffin song to ever listen to again, what would it be?

  11. Jordan:
    1. Definitely the incorrect use of their/they’re/there. That drives me MAD!
    2. I don’t really have a favorite. I read The Tuscaloosa News most frequently. Ooh – unless The CW counts!
    3. Probably “Rain.” I love that song. But that’s just today…

  12. 1.Whats the ONE best part of “Lions in Kenya”?
    2.If you won a shopping spree of $5,000, where would you like to win it at?
    3.Whats the longest you’ve gone without a shower?

  13. Leesy,
    1. That’s easy. The “zebbra”!
    2. That is a really, really tough call. Could it be like a mall shopping spree? If so, I’d want it to be at Brookwood Village. I could put a hurtin’ on $5k there. Otherwise, probably a home furnishing store, like Pottery Barn or Pier 1.
    3. I don’t think I’ve skipped more than one day since I became adult enough to manage my bathing schedule myself. And even skipping a day is a big deal for me.

  14. returning the favor!!

    1. what is your favorite kind of sandwich?

    2. which would you prefer in a date: good sense of humor or booksmarts?

    3. what are the elements of a good kiss?

  15. Megan:
    1. My favorite sandwich was this yummy pork thing they had at Panera. Unfortunately, I must’ve been in the minority on that. They got rid of the sandwich, and I am very, very sad. (It had some sort of spicy sauce with lime in it. It was SO good.)
    2. Sense of humor and intelligence are both HIGH on my list, and I tend to be attracted to guys who are very book smart (even though that doesn’t HAVE to be the way intelligence manifests itself). But in a pinch, I think I would choose the sense of humor over the book smarts.
    3. Ooooh! I have never thought about it, other than “I know it when I experience it.” I guess… not too aggressive. Tenderness is good. Not too much tongue (I’m assuming tongue is involved? ooh, this is so… not something I’ve ever talked about in a public domain!), but he can’t be too timid either. Not too much slobber (though some is inevitable). A small element of surprise can be good. Eyes closed. Hands around my waist are good. It’s good to be left wanting more – in that sense, shorter kisses can be better than longer. And it’s significantly better if you’re into the guy. 🙂

  16. great answers! esp on the kissing thing. hahaha.

  17. bonbonsnack

  18. Carla Jean is hot. Too bad for you that she only likes guys with good grammar.
