I know I promised more frequenting posts and have yet to deliver. I am trying to reduce costs and so have cut my internet at home. The Edinburgh Public Library Wi-Fi has been down, and I’ve been being lazy and not going up to school to use the Wi-Fi there. However, I will be getting off my duff to walk up here more often, so my promises are not empty! 😉 Anyhoo…I have a backlog of posts to wrap up 2011…So, for the next few days, I will be travelling back to last year, aka 2 1/2 weeks ago. 😀
Finishing up this ‘project’…
42 – List who you thought was the coolest growing up.
I am pretty sure I thought my older brother was the awesomest person I knew. Thankfully, he’s still pretty fab.
43 – List your favorite car models.
’82 Corvette Stingray, hands down…Collector’s Edition specifically. 😀 (One day, my lovely, you will be mine!)
I also enjoy the Corvette Mako Shark and Corvette Manta Ray. Two Batmobiles to go, please!
44 – List couples you were sad to see break up.
Hmm…I don’t think about this sort of thing too much, but I guess Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston.
45 – List your favorite horror villains.
Hmm…Well, I am not big into horror movies for a variety of reasons, but in terms of just regular bad guys, I find Samuel L. Jackson’s character in ‘Unbreakable’ to be intriguing.
46 – List what issues are foremost on your mind.
Money and employment, obvs! 😉
47 – List what you remember about your childhood home.
Aww! Such a sensitive topic! My mom sold our house this summer. I fully support her decision, so I was shocked when I drove by the house when I was back for Christmas that I had to turn around asap because I was in heavy sobs! I was not expecting that kind of reaction AT ALL. Everything about it is great! I miss you, House!
