Alicia Goranson, apparently. I was once asked to autograph as her. I guess I rather looked like an adult version of her kid self.

Though my old boss once found a series of pornographic photos that he seriously thought were me at first! I don't know her name.

Oh, I also looked like Kristy McNichol as a kid.

I'd like to be cremated. I don't want to continue to take up space once I'm gone. I felt that way before minimalism, too! I'm not particular about my ashes. Funerals and whatnot are really for the living anyway, not the dead.

I'd probably request the same thing I already eat every day, but made the way I make it on a good day. I'd have scrambled eggs with shredded cheese and chopped sweet peppers (in a variety of colors) served over buttered toast. Though I might add a side of sausage links and of course a very small glass of milk. Mmmm. Perfect!

Except they'd have to make it WELL or I'd just as soon make it myself! No cooking eggs on HIGH!

Well isn't this one abstract? Actually, as a child I sort of assigned personalities (like from a comic book) to several colors. Blue was a super hero type and Red was his girlfriend. Green was an average guy, jealous of Blue. Yellow was Green's girlfriend.

Did I mention I'm nuts? What does it say about me that my favorite color has been green for as long as I can remember? You might notice that almost all of my icons include green.




So... yeah, I think green is a beautiful, peaceful color and I believe it suits me. My husband would be blue. Not only does it look absolutely gorgeous with green, it happens to be his favorite color.

Green and Blue both seem to me to be more laid back than say, for example, Red. They are calming colors and we're generally calm people.

The weather doesn't really matter. Rain or shine, my current favorite snack is Nutella on honey wheat toast.

My phone is like my lifeline. I text with my husband when I'm not at home. I keep in touch with my family. I just use it too much to let go. I am not sure I could ever have enough ♪ music ♫ in my life, it is great to have as background noise for ANYthing (though I have an appreciation for quiet, too). Television, however... I think too many people schedule their lives around television. I guess it has gotten better since Tivo, so people can watch shows at their own convenience (though I don't have Tivo).

I don't want to get stuck watching any weekly shows. I don't want the disappointment if I miss it (which happened with Big Brother) and I don't want to feel tied to my home at a particular time for something that seems to trivial. Besides, my husband is a bit of a TV-junkie (almost as bad as movies), so it is the one thing from which I could appreciate a break. There is no way we'd (he'd) make it a week!

Probably nothing at all. Though I also like the idea of a single consciousness. Like one big ball of energy from which each person comes and to which returns every one returns. It would explain so much. But mostly... I think nothing happens. It just ends.

I don't usually like sharing stuff like this online, but there you have it.

I got involved with a co-worker and now we're happily married! :-D

We both still work there so far, though we don't work at the same time anymore. That makes child care much easier!

My first car was a 1953 Dodge Coronet, hunter green. I named it Vincent, after Vincent VanGogh. He is my favorite artist and the color made me think of his dark art.

I was terrified of drive-thru car washes. I would literally get out and wait for my mom and brother to ride through. Now I kinda think they're cool, though I never wash my car. It just does not sit very high on my priority list of things to get done. I don't care if my car is dirty.

I think I've made enough major life changes in the last two years! I've gotten divorced, moved out, gotten pregnant, gotten married, and drastically changed my work schedule.

If I could choose another major life change, though... it would be to work at home (again). As I've mentioned, though, the problem is insurance! I am not currently working toward a serious life transition. I'm still adjusting to some of the ones I already made!

[Error: unknown template qotd]I had not intended to dress up at all. I have some stuff around that I can wear for costumes, but I haven't gotten back down to my pre-pregnancy size yet, so I didn't even want to mess with it. Also, none of it would be convenient for nursing. Then, since it was my first day back to work after 2 months off, I told everyone there that I was dressed up like someone that worked there. (I wear a uniform.) :-P

So far, I have no intention of dressing up tomorrow, either. I don't have any specific plans to see anyone for any special holiday stuff, either.

Wow. My very first post to LJ was about a dear friend. I helped her pack up and leave her husband. She was headed to Washington state... so far away, with three children in tow. Then I was very sad for her situation. I miss her so so much. It makes me very sad every time I think of her... as she hasn't seemed to want contact from any of her Tulsa friends.

Thanks for the downer, LJ.

I think I'd generally say Mac & Cheese (unless Tuna Casserole is available) followed by a tall glass of really chocolaty chocolate milk and maybe some fudge or melted chocolate chips.

Hahaha, it says ONE food. Well, tough. I gave one meal.

I miss Deadwood! That was my favorite role for Timothy Olyphant and the show was just downright awesome!

What a good point. With all the commercialism surrounding holidays (or is that holidays created for commercialism?), it is amazing that food is just about the only thing you're expected to purchase for this one. Sure, there are center pieces and such, but they're not expected like the stuff of other holidays.

I am 35 years old and I have never cooked a Thanksgiving meal. I know I'm capable. I was going to cook a Thanksgiving meal once. I was 18 or 19 years old. I got a 2nd degree burn on my hand shortly before Thanksgiving, though. So, we I left the turkey in the freezer and saved it for giftmas. My mother and her husband came over and spent the night giftmas eve and I cooked the giftmas dinner.

Otherwise, my father always has a big meal at the same time every year. He always has turkey and ham. Hell, he usually has a couple of turkeys and a ham these days! I was going to list all the extras, but I'm sure I would leave some out and simply not do the buffet justice. I suppose one thing that stands out are the dinner rolls. My stepmother always makes those yeast rolls that have to rise before you bake them. And then they are always served up in a cloth-lined wok. That's right, a wok. I don't think she has ever cooked in the wok, but it has always been our bread basket.

And there will be family and friends. SO many family and friends! My brother will be having Thanksgiving at home with his husband this year for the first time. While I'll miss seeing him, I'm proud of him for doing what they feel they need to do. There can be so much pressure to follow these family holiday traditions. I'm sure both of my stepbrothers will make appearances. One is divorcing, but will hopefully have his two daughters with him and the other one's girlfriend is likely to not show up, if recent years are any indication. My sister will surely be there with at least two of her kids. Hopefully the youngest (of the 3) won't be at her dad's in Tennessee for the holiday... except that would mean we would have her for giftmas. And finally, today will be a day we will all think of my other sister. The holidays really stand out as a time to miss her... I guess because we mostly saw her only the holidays. She lived in Arkansas. She was boisterous. She was a person that did not go unnoticed. Her husband will surely be there today with their son.

And then there will be friends. My father opens his home to anyone that doesn't have somewhere to go for this family holiday. Sometimes I think people just say they offer this, but he has had plenty of friends there in the past. I've even brought friends before. The really amazing part is that he does the same thing for giftmas. I've taken extra people for the giftmas get together in the past. My father and family welcome them. My father only asks for enough advance notice that he can make sure to have a gift under the tree for the guests. He won't have anyone feeling left out for giftmas, that wouldn't be right.

Wow... this was going to be a quick, short entry before I get up to make my Deviled Eggs. I got carried away. I'm glad I'll have time to cook and take a food with me this year. I'm thankful for a lot this year, but I'm saddened by a little with the holiday, too. I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving this year, whether you choose to follow old traditions or make new ones of your own, or perhaps return to old traditions and reconnect with your families.

I don't care for cranberry sauce (fresh or canned), but I would hate for it to be missing from the Thanksgiving table. It is one of those traditional foods that is always there. Actually, I don't care for pumpkin pie, either. How could you have Thanksgiving without pumpkin pie, though?? I don't eat either one of these. The other traditional dessert we have is Pecan Pie. I don't care for either of these, so I often miss out on Thanksgiving dessert. Sometimes someone brings a fruit pie. Yay!

All that said, we have so many people and so much food there on Thanksgiving that our meal is served up buffet-style. There is not enough room on the dining room table for all the food, much less for all the people!

Ah... this post has made me a little more ready for Thanksgiving. I look forward to seeing everyone. This will be my boyfriend's first big holiday with my family.
