I borrowed this from Suburban Lesbian (who borrowed it from somebody else) and I swear she loves lists almost as much as I do.

1. The phone rings. Who are you hoping it is? Oh god, I'm so beyond sick of the telephone. I hope it's a wrong number.
2. When shopping at the grocery store, do you return your cart? If it's icy and slippery and I'm far from the "cart corral," then no. If my knees are hurting and I'm hobbling, no. Otherwise, yes.
3. In a social setting, are you more of a talker or a listener? When folks ask you what you do for a living, and you tell them you're a sex therapist, it's pretty much all over after that. I guess equal parts listener and talker. This usually involves listening to their current sexual beef and responding when I'm asked my opinion.
4. If abandoned alone in the wilderness, would you survive? It would depend on the kind of wilderness. It could be said that I live in a wilderness at the moment! I actually think I'd survive fine anywhere really cold. However, put me in a desert and I think I'd be a goner.
5. Do you like to ride horses? I'm a "big boned gal." I'm convinced that no horse would survive a gallop with me on its back, therefore I've never dared to mount one.
6. Did you ever go to camp as a kid? In Britain where I grew up, Camp was not commmon. Occasionally there would be a weekend girl scouts get-away, but otherwise you were home with Mum for the summer.
7. What was your favorite board game as a kid? I've always hated board games and still do. Occasionally, if she wines long enough, I'll play one with my grandbaby. But otherwise, I'm not a board game kind of gal.
8. If a sexy person was pursuing you, but you knew she was taken what would you do? Feel sad for her (and know that if I were to capitulate, the same behavior would come around in my direction sooner or later.)
9. Are you judgmental? Nope, not really.
10. Would you date someone with different religious beliefs? I wouldn't date a Christian fundamentalist. But I've dated atheists, practicing Catholics, Buddhists and Jews.
11. Are you continuing your education? Every minute of every day.
12. Do you know how to shoot a gun? No. And I never thought I'd ever say this, but I'm tempted to learn how since moving to such a rural location.
13. If your house was on fire, what's the first thing you'd grab? My binder full of passports, credentialing papers, etc.
14. How often do you read books? Whenever I can.
15. Do you think more about the past, present or future? I'm usually pretty good at living in the moment. However, I think about how my past affects my present and future, and I think more about the future than I ever have done before since I learned about Peak Oil.
16. What is your favorite children's book? Oh god, that's a hard one. The Secret Garden, Peter Pan, Little Women (and all the books that Louisa M. Alcott wrote after that), Treasure Island.
17. How tall are you? 5'3"
18. Where is your ideal house located? I'm living in it.
19. Last person you talked to? My best friend (I'm typing this from her house)
20. When was the last time you were at Olive Garden? I've never been. What's the deal with that place?
21. What are your keys on your key chain for? I have two key chains. One has my house key, my daughter's house key, my car key and the key to Mr. Lesbian's car. The second one has all my office keys on it, including my filing cabinet in the office.
22. What did you do last night? Had a divorce conversation with Mr. Lesbian (next blog, folks), folded laundry, washed dishes and went to bed early with the book "Emotional Blackmail."
23. Where is your current pain at [sic]? I'm with Suburban Lesbian on this one. Huh?
24. Do you like mustard? I like horseradish mustard, and Colman's English mustard. But my favorite mustard is Wasabi.
25. Do you like your mom or dad? I love my mom down to her every cell. My father is a narcissistic drunk. I love him but I don't like him much.
26. How long does it take you in the shower? About 15 minutes. I don't shave my legs (or any other part of my body come to that.)
27. What movie do you want to see right now? I want to see "Music and Lyrics". Yeah, I know it's a heterosexual date movie. But I'm a sucker for Hugh Grant.
28. Do you put lotion on your dog or cats? No, but I do put vaseline on my pup's paws when there's salt down on the ice outside.
29. What did you do for New Year's? I spent it watching "The Fastest Indian" with my sister and Mr. Lesbian.
30. Do you think The Grudge was scary? I've never seen it. But I had a client who did her entire session about the effect the movie had on her.
31. Do you own a camera phone? Yes. I don't use it much, but it's there just in case.
32. What's the last letter of your middle name? I don't have a middle name.
33. Who did you vote for on American Idol? I watch sporadically and have never voted. But if I did vote, it would never have been for that no-talent twit who won last time!
