Getting to know you meme

Captain's Log, Stardate 01.21.2009

I think I did this meme before, but OH WELL!

1. What time did you get up this morning? Noon—I slept in today

2. Diamonds or pearls? Diamonds

3. What was the last film you saw at the cinema? I think it was Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End which I saw with Shelley Adina.

4. What is your favorite TV show? Right now, it’s Leverage on TNT. I used to rave about 24, but so far, this season hasn’t been exciting my interest as much as other seasons.

5. What do you usually have for breakfast? Homemade low fat yogurt! I’m actually quite proud of myself that I’ve been eating breakfast everyday within 30 minutes of waking up. Before, I wouldn’t eat until lunch, which was very bad of me.

6. What is your middle name? Mie

7. What food do you dislike? vinegar

8. What is your favorite CD? I don't have any one favorite. Right now I’m listening to Matthew West, Something To Say

18. Furthest place you are sending this? Well, I’m blogging rather than emailing this to people, so I have no idea. If you live far away from California, leave a comment to tell me where you live!

24. What is your shoe size? It depends on the brand. I take anywhere from 7.5 to 8 narrow.

37. How is the weather right now? Cool, but nothing compared to someplace like Nebraska or Minnesota.

  3. I love Leverage! We only have one TV channel, so I've been buying the episodes off Amazon. In fact, I'm sleepy today at work since I stayed up late watching The Mile-High Job with my sister, and The Miracle Job with my mom!
