Finish this sentence

From Gem’s blog:

1. My uncle once: was a magician. I’m sure he still is, when called on.

2. Never in my life: have I parachuted out of a plane. And I don’t plan to, either.

3. When I was five: I was in kindergarten. I think this also may have been the age when I fell out of my dad’s car. lol

4. High school was: OK. I liked choosing my curriculum and learning things. I got along with most of my teachers and I had a few close friends, and many acquaintances. I didn’t love it enough to go back for any reunions, though.

5. I will never forget: My trip to England.

6. Once I met: I can’t think of anyone famous that I’ve met.

7. There’s this girl I know: Who has an ornery look in her eye. 🙂 Be afraid (or endeared. One of those).

8. Once, at a bar: I danced to Madonna songs, played quarters and drank loads of Bud Light. 🙂

9. By noon, I’m usually: ready to leave work for “lunch”

10. Last night: My neighbor was annoying (and a tad mental, if you ask me)

11. If only I had: loads of free flight coupons

12. Next time I go to church: Huh. Don’t know. I have no plans to really go to church. I am spiritual. I believe in God, but I haven’t been spending time at church.

13. What worries me most: I would say the worst thing is worrying about what I say.. that it will come out wrong, sound stupid or insult someone. 🙂

19. By this time next year: I hope life is less complicated. 🙂

20. A better name for me would be: Well, you could call me Michelle Pfeiffer, but I think that would be silly. I like “Sophie” as a name. That would have been interesting.

21. I have a hard time understanding: How to do math in my head.. mostly adding and subtracting, unless it’s a fraction, and I’m good at that, only because I cook and have occasion to double or halve recipes.

22. If I ever go back to school, I’ll: find something interesting to study, like Linguistics.

23. You know I like you if: I keep emailing you… endlessly. hehe

24. If I ever won an award, the first person I would thank would be: Lol…doesn’t that depend on the award?

25. Take my advice, never: flick hair colour in your eye. It doesn’t feel good. Also, lighting a cigarette by a natural gas stove flame, not a good idea.

26. My ideal breakfast is: It depends on my mood. Some days are cereal days (honey nut shredded wheat.. yummy!), some are egg or Cream of Wheat or Oatmeal days.

    it’s been a while since I’ve seen one of these (but it’s been a while since I’ve seen much of anything 🙂 )

    1) my uncle too – well, an amateur one – he was always doing tricks… maybe it’s an uncle thing ? (in which case, I should start learning to saw people in half (oh, and put them back together afterwards))

    6) I’ve met a few people – but usually only on promotional “book”/”cd” signing things; never through freak chance encounters in the street

    13) me too

    14) the office door, 15) a cherry tree (through the office window)

    17) the 80s were a time where I was looking forward to the future, full of dreams; but not yet disillusioned by the realities of life. That optimistic innocence is what I miss.

    22) I’m told linguistics is incredibly interesting; although, like most things, there are elements (almost typed elephants) of “what has _this_ got to do with that?”

    39) that’s good advice; for everyone. Make your own footsteps
