i came across this survey that i had filled out about six months ago.  i thought it would be kinda fun (or not) to re-do it and see if anything changed

** new answer first, (old answer parenthetical) **

tuesday.  nov 10th.  celebration of finality of divorce.  5 sips of champagne.  still a cheap drunk. (april 2007.  half glass of riesling.  cheap drunk.)

Last person who called you?
the hospital scheduling department (mason)

Last person you shared your bed with?
silly monkey –
he crawled in with me at 6am and i was too tired to get up for the day, so we snuggled for a bit. (silly monkey- he crawled in with me at 3am and i was too tired to put him back in his own bed. bad, i know.

vomit inducingly so. (happy enough)

Do you miss someone?
————> (my mom, always)

Have you ever dated a cheerleader/football player and for how long?
no. (soccer player, but is it considered dating when you’re like, 11? or is it really dating when you live 2,000 miles away?  or when you just… nevermind.  i will have you know that he’s still one of my very best people.  oh and he says can’t afford me.)

Do you think you can happily last in a relationship for 3 months?
absolutely.  i’m counting on it.  and this time, i won’t fake it. (i WAS in a relationship for almost 9 years, so um… no, i guess not. so cynical.)

Do you drink alcohol?
————> (almost never.  this could be established in question 1.)

Do you lead people on?
i would never, ever be purposely careless with anyone’s feelings.  it’s why i break up via text.  then apologize via email. (on what?  a leash? if so, then yes.)

Do you have a dry erase board in your room?
no, but i just looked at the 2 in the living room and they’re lopsided.  ugh. (no, but i have 2 next to the front door. they’re clear so you can see the grey wall behind them. they’re awesome!)

i am so far from mad today, it’s disgustingly humorous. (not mad, disappointed.  i’m getting over it.)

Are you taking anyone for granted?
absolutely NOT!! (i hope not.)

Where do you keep your money?
the bank sees if for a day or so.  in goes in, then right back out. (i’m a mom.  i drive an SUV. i have no money. (i stole this answer from jill b/c 1.  it’s true and 2.  it’s so much more clever than anything i could come up with))

How did you wake up this morning?
to the blaring alarm that had “snoozed” for 45 minutes. (with silly monkey telling me “mommy, wake up, come on, wake up”, as he laid across me.)

Which is more romantic: sunrise or sunset?
screw romance.  i need health insurance. (sunset. i’m never awake for sunrise.  nor do i want to be.)

When was the last time you were so drunk you threw up?
————> (i think i was 22 and now i’m old.  so a long ass time ago.)

Do you curse a lot?
not much anymore.  occasionally, a “crap” or “shit” or “fuck” will slip out, but i purposely watch my semi-former potty mouth. (i try not to (see above). silly monkey repeats everything i say (including “birds are gross and grody).  definitely not as much as i used to.)

Do you hate your ex boyfriend/girlfriend?
nope.  and that most likely kills him. (nah)

Do you drink bottled water?
regularly.  have you seen your city’s drinking water reports?  um.  gross. (filtered water. doesn’t HAVE to be bottled, but it should be.)

Are you louder than people think you are?
not so much.  i’m as loud as people think i am. (sometimes)

Does everyone deserve a second chance?
nope.  you blow it the first time, the only thing you’ll get from me is a kiss goodbye. (absolutely NOT!  but we still give them, don’t we?!)

————> (i have no idea where he is. i’d love to see him again.  wait… first love or first crush?  or does it matter?  i say it doesn’t matter.)

Would you say you date smart people?
i have.  i did.  but he talked WAY too much.  he didn’t make me feel dumb.  he made me feel narcoleptic. plus, ————> (no. after the initial “nice” period wears off, they are ALL undoubtedly dumb.)

Have you lost friends in the past years?
————> (i gave them away.)

What are your plans for this weekend?
cosi with silly monkey to see “big diego” and visiting with family.  ultra fun. (fun with silly, then movies with eddie)

Is life over for you?
it has only just begun. (not today.)
