51- I know how to sail a small craft sailboat.
52- My father was a police captain officer for a zillion years, and so was my brother. They’re both currently retired from the force.
53- I’m a magazine junkie. But I never really get a chance to read them. I do my reading in bed at night and I’m always in the middle of a novel.
54- I don’t like puzzles. Of any kind.
55- I never saw Forest Gump.
56- I love receiving packages in the mail. But I’m sure everyone does.
57- My twins’ doctors usually ask me to call them by their first names, probably because we’re around the same age, or I’m older. But I just can’t do it.
58- I was born and raised 10 minutes outside of New York City. I adore Manhattan! Now I’m an hour away, I miss the easy access.
59- Junk mail makes me insane. My blood boils and I break out in a sweat with a tingling at the back of my neck when I open my mailbox and see those damned crap coupon flyers and other crap in there. What’s worse, my mailbox is in an awkward place so oftentimes I drop the mail down into the hedges and it’s a whole thing to get them back out. Grrrrrr.
60- One of my favorite things to do is spend the day with my mom shopping in a mall that has a Nordstrom. Have lunch and shop more. But now my mom, being in her mid-70’s, runs out of energy after an hour. I run out of money.
61- I cringe when I see people walk around my carpet with shoes on. I think it’s bizarre that people wear shoes in the house. It just doesn’t make any sort of sense to me to walk around in animal doody, dirtbags’ spit, strangers’ shedded skin cells and then drag it into your home for your kids to put in their mouths. Or you get it into your hair when you’re exercising and then it lands on your pillowcase when you go to bed- turn over on your tummy, and all that is now *in your* mouth. I don’t like it one bit.
62- My favorite vegetable is asparagus. Second would be brussels’ sprouts.
63- I don’t have a favorite color. It all depends on the shade as to which item I will gravitate towards. I tend to lean towards dark amethyst purples, aqua blues, blueish greens, deep reds, and rich pinks. I hardly ever choose yellows, though I appreciate pale yellows for decorating purposes. But for clothing, I almost always go for black.
64- I love music and have a huge iTunes library as well as hundreds of CDs in my freezer in the basement (freezer is not plugged in). But never anything in the mainstream top 40.
65- Dogs. The best dog ever was my guy Murphy, who was a Brittany and died in 2004 at age 15. My current dog is a 6 m/o puppy that’s half Puggle, half Wire Fox Terrier and his name is Gomez. I’m still learning to love him. It’s a challenge.
66- My eyes are extremely sensitive to light. I prefer to wear sunglasses that are polarized. I think once you wear these you can never go back to non-polarized.
67- I was addicted to Afrin nasal spray for about 4 years. There’s an episode on King of Queens where Carrie’s father slips back into his nasal spray habit junky-style. That is really how it was for me too:
68- I’ve loved photography since I was a kid. I took several classes in college (before digital). That doesn’t mean I’m any good though. But I do take photos every single day.
Crap, I have to run, my mom is here to go shopping! I have to cut this short and finish tonight. Thanks for reading!
Love Ms. Crabass xoxoxoxoxoxoxo!
