Too much rain and more about me than you'd ever need to know...  
Thankfully the rain's finally stopped! It's been so rainy here that everything felt so damp and disgusting the whole weekend... even my carpet felt wet when I walked on it... Blech!!! :( I like the occasional rain to break up the heat here, but the rain we were having has been going on for a few weeks now... and it was getting pretty old. :P

In other news, while everyone I knew was celebrating the day off, I was stuck at work trying to fix "over contribution" problems at the office. :P I think it's Prince Kuhio day, but I'd have to check with roopunzel :) just to make sure since I can never keep the Hawaiian Royalty holidays straight for some reason. :P We never get any of them off anyway....

And I found this on MySpace last night, so I stole it. :)

(If you find that some of my answers don't make sense, it's probably because I answered it last night when I was sleepy and incoherent) :P

1. How many keys are on your keychain?
TOO many! :( I look like a superintendent with all of my keys! :P One for my house, one for my car, one for my suitcase (which I don't even use anymore - why is it still on there??) :P one for hubby's car, one for my Mom's house, one for the bank... TOO many, I say...

2. What curse word do you use the most?
I don't swear too much anymore... I used to, though. :P Kevin's got a real knack for swearing. Within a 5 minute conversation, he'll say f*ck at least four or five times!

3. Do you own an iPod?
Yes, it's my lifeline on LOOONG plane rides!!

4. Who on your Myspace "Top 8" do you talk to the most?
Yeah, this was a MySpace thing... Doesn't make much sense for me to answer it here, but I'll just say my hubby. :)

5. What time is your alarm clock set for?
5:15 am, dammit!! (Oh, I guess I do curse, Oooops!!) ;)

6. How many suitcases do you own?
Between the two of us, Mark & I own at least 10 suitcases (most are hand-me-downs from the in-laws)

7. Do you wear flip-flops even when it's cold outside?
Yes! Ask my friend Bobbie who remembers the first time I showed up at JFK in November wearing flip flops, my East Coast friends nearly died when they saw me! :D

8. Where do you buy your groceries from?
Safeway... there's no Trader Joe's here, dammit! (Gee, I guess I say that a lot...) :P

9. Would you rather take the picture or be in the picture?
TAKE the picture!! It's why I became a photography major. :)

10. What was the last movie you watched?
RENT, not at all surprising, I'm sure! :D

11. Do any of your friends have children?
Most of them do and at our age, the ones who don't are rare...

12. If you won the lottery, what's the first thing you would buy?
I would probably pay off my house first, help out family and friends, and then donate money to great organizations and theatres.

Not in a long time, but my Mom did a lot when I was growing up.

No, though I have battled insomnia for YEARS... :P

Neither, I really don't drink anything but water.

Gosh, it must've been AGES ago... even then, how can you tell?

Huh? I guess the answer is no to this. :P

21. Can you whistle?
Yes, but not in tune. Haha!

23. Who was the last person to call you?

24. What is your favorite ride at an amusement park?
Eh! I'm not into that at all!

25. Do you think people talk about you behind your back?
I hope not, I don't do that to other people...

26. What area code are you in right now?
808 -- what a strange pointless question. ;)

27. Did you watch cartoons as a child?
Didn't we all? :) I loved Fearless Fly and Underdog... and boy that really dates me!

28. How big is your local mall?
The one I work across is okay in size, the bigger one is Ala Moana, where I used to work across the street from...

29. How many siblings do you have?

30. Are you shy around the opposite sex?

Hee hee! Prince Kuhio Day is supposed to be on March 26 but I wonder if it's celebrated on a different day when it falls on the weekend?
Sheri: Stephanie & Kate Monstershutterbug93 on March 28th, 2006 04:20 am (UTC)
Haha!! I KNEW you would know!! Woo hoo!! :) And I actually got it right this year!! :D Thanks, Rita!!

WhooHoo! I love quizzes!! I'm so stealing this one!;)
Sheri: Stephanie & Kate Monstershutterbug93 on March 28th, 2006 08:57 am (UTC)
Yay - steal away! :D
Michael Corleyclivec on March 28th, 2006 04:58 am (UTC)
Yeah... doing your own dishes will ruin your love of mustard.

But the real question is... if you had been Darren, would you do your own dishes???
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on March 28th, 2006 09:07 am (UTC)
Haha! Very intriguing! Would I like mustard if I was Darren??

However, I think the real question here is what on earth possessed me to stay up until all hours of the night (last night) filling in this silly meme (and then falling asleep so I couldn't post it) when I could've been sleeping? :P
Michael Corleyclivec on March 28th, 2006 06:17 pm (UTC)
Sleep is inferior to livejournal. That's why!

Sleep is for people who don't like to make witty remarks in the vast realms of cyberspace.

Sleep, in short, is not for us.

Thanks for sharing this - I always love to get to know so much about you and I enjoyed to read your answers. :) Not sure, but perhaps I'll steal it.

Glad to hear that the rain stopped and I hope that you will get nice weather. :)

Big *hugs* to you, Sheri.
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on March 30th, 2006 10:53 am (UTC)
Thanks for taking the time to read it, Sabine! I usually pass on surveys, but a sometimes I'm in the mood to take them... I'm not sure why. :P I'd love to hear your answers to it - though I'd understand if you wanted to pass on this one since it's so long! :)

We just got another storm front the past couple of days - more rain!! :P

Hope you're having a nice week, Sabine! Big *HUGS* to you!

That was so very fun...I'm going to have to steal this and do it later! :)
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on March 30th, 2006 10:54 am (UTC)
I had fun answering this one. :) And please, steal away! I'd love to read your answers. :D

It's been raining like crazy here too. Not for as long though. I don't know how you can stand it.

I really enjoy reading those little fill in the blank surveys. It opens up a door and allows us to see a little bit more into who you are! :)
Sheri: Sydney *SIGH*shutterbug93 on March 30th, 2006 10:56 am (UTC)
Oh, is it raining there too? :( Sorry you've been having funky weather too! :( I heard on the news that it's been 40 days straight of rain for us. :P Houses are flooding, people died in Kauai, it's just awful! :(

Thanks for taking the time to read the survey, Carrie! It was so long, I didn't think anyone would read it all the way through. It was a lot of fun to answer, though.

Hope you feel better soon! *HUGS*
