Oh the days of the survey. Here I am, awake at 11 pm the day before a media event, and I have nothing better to do than hunt down a survey that I took in 2003 and see what my answers would be today.
THE FRUITS OF YOUR LABOR( things you can't live without)
Something important on your desk: my steno pad
When you sleep you wear: night gown or boxers/shirt
If you could afford it at the moment, you would buy: a brand new kitchen, new windows for the upstairs, and new curtains for the downstairs. and some paint.
Something you don't have a lot of: time
If your house was burning and you could only save 3 items what would they be: our cats, my journals, my laptop
If there were no side effects, you would enjoy being addicted to: ugh pepsi and chocolate. pepsi is my downfall.
A compliment that makes you blush: really no compliments make me blush right now. i've tried to be better about accepting compliments, and accept them graciously.
You are embarassed when: I've learned to laugh at myself in the last three years. This year I called our CEO by the wrong name, so I'd say when I do something retarded like that.
The greatest physical pain you ever endured: It's a toss up between tennis elbow in college and ovarian cysts.
The greatest emotional pain you ever endured: Losing my best friend, and unexpected deaths. Tater passing away was pretty terrible too.
Your best physical feature: eyes
Emotion you hide most: I think I'm pretty good at hiding being really angry, which mostly applies on the tennis court. I always feel bitchy, but people don't know that I'm being bitchy.
The emotion you tend to experience most: Melancholy would be the historical answer, but it's few and far between these days.
The emotion you are feeling most lately: I would say a mixture between happy and overwhelmed. Craziness at work, holidays coming up. There's a lot to be grateful for, but also a lot going on.
You have a huge amount of guilt regarding: the death of our cat. Is there something else we could have done? I know there wasn't, but it's only been a few months and it still hits me sometimes.
When you are angry you need: to get away from people so i can cry. it's so annoying that i cry when i'm frustrated. tennis is also a pretty good outlet. unfortunately tennis can't go everywhere with you, which is where the crying comes in.
When you are sentimental you need: to reread old blog/journal entries and listen to music that reminds me of things
When you are in love you need: Denis Pete
One of your most peaceful memories: waking up to have tater snuggled up next to me, and falling back asleep.
One of your most tragic memories: the death of the tater was pretty traumatic. also when my aunt and cousin died in a car accident, and when i found out my papa had cancer.
One of your angriest memories: most of these involve middle aged tennis women that refer to me as a high schooler still. i haven't been really angry in quite awhile.
A memory that makes you laugh: i was late to something at work, and when i walked in the employee entrance i involuntarily dropped the cup i was holding on the ground. ice/coke when everywhere. right in front of the ceo. i'm awesome. hopefully my hijinks are endearing haha.
a memory that makes you happy: thinking about our wedding
If you had more time alone you would: read and play more tennis
If you had more patience you would: try to learn to play an instrument.
If you could change one thing about your physical appearance what would it be: my waistlessness. i get it from my mom. my sister has a waist, i want one too!
If you had no committments what would you be doing: playing tennis with all the desperate housewife tennis moms during the day, and then freelance editing. i would be traveling on the side, of course.
If you could start all over…. i wouldn't change a thing. i've learned that things happen for a reason, even if you can't see it right away.
