For my Booklikes friends: 50 Answers

I am a tag free blog, but a bunch of my Booklikes followees are doing this one.


1. Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed? 
Open. I rarely remember to close them, although it would keep my clothes dust free here in the high desert.


2. Do you sleep with your sheets tucked in or out?

I only use a top sheet in the summer, otherwise just untucked blankets


3. Have you ever stolen a street sign before?



4. Do you cut out coupons and never use them?
I gave up on coupons, since I never remember I have them until it’s too late.


5. Would you rather be attacked by bears or bees?
A bear; bees are the only animal phobia I have (despite never having been stung to my or my mother’s knowledge).


6. Do you have freckles? 



7. Do you always smile for pictures?

NO; I don’t even let my family take my picture except at special events.

Do those camping outhouses count?

Same answer.

12. What’s your song of the week? 

Don’t have one. I only occasionally turn off my Audiobook and listen to music.

13. Is it okay for guys to wear pink?
Yes; I think it can be a sign that a man isn’t afraid to be himself. Besides, who ever decided to color code the world anyway?


14. Do you still watch Cartoons?
With Pixar in the world, how could I not?

Either water or a zero-calorie flavored drink

Ice cream

25. What is your Chinese astrology sign?
No clue.


26. How many languages can you speak?

2 - English and Spanish. I would love to speak a lot more. A job that required me to learn at least one new language is a dream of mine (since it would justify spending the time doing so).


27. Do you have any magazine subscriptions?



28. Are you stubborn?

I don’t know that I would describe myself as stubborn so much as set-in-my-ways. I think the difference is whether you’re willing to listen.
