Hello and welcome to Question Tuesday!
1. Last time you went to the gym or worked out?
That’s really two questions. Last time I worked out? This morning. Last time I went to the gym? 1999.
2. How many pairs of shoes do you own?
Probably a dozen. Fewer than I used to own; more than I need. I have a serious shoe addiction. I dream of the day I’m successful enough to own a house with a shoe closet.
3. Do you have a photo hosting site that you use?
Instagram, mostly, though it’s not a hosting site in the strictest sense. I should probably look into getting one. If you have any suggestions, let me know in the comments.
4. Last place you drove your car?
The park. Yes, I understand the irony of driving to a park so I can go for a run.
5. What is your college mascot?
Two colleges: Eastfield College (The Harvesters) and Texas A&M – Galveston (The Aggies)
6. Do you like college?
I did, on the whole. It was a mistake to go to Galveston, but I did learn some valuable things there – I have no business trying to be a marine biologist; I can have a massive appreciation for a field and not be a member of that field; I really enjoy Kafka; the Houston Browncoats are the best group of people in the universe. College was difficult for me because I wasn’t mature enough to make the most of it. I was intelligent enough to get through it, but wasn’t mentally ready to handle it. I regret the opportunity I wasted, but not the time I spent.
7. Nicest hotel you ever stayed in?
The North Houston Hilton. The pillows were amazing…
8. Have you ever been gambling?
In a casino – no. Family poker games – yes. I used to play online poker quite a bit, but now I don’t have the time or money.
9. Do you have your wisdom teeth?
Nope. I’ve only had one try to come in and had it removed before it could wreak too much havoc.
10. Have you been to New York City?
Yes, and I would love to go again. I made a trip with my high school choir in the summer of 1998. We did all the goofy tourist things like going to Central Park, the art museum, and St. Patrick’s Cathedral. We saw two of my favorite Broadway shows, Cats and Phantom of the Opera. And we got to sing a concert at Carnegie Hall. I have some amazing photos from that trip, but my favorite is this one:
11. Favorite sit down restaurant?
The Old Fisherman
12. Ever been to Disney World?
No, and I doubt I ever will. I try to avoid all things Disney.
13. Favorite cartoon character?
Since I can’t decide between Robin and Aqualad on Teen Titans, I’ll go with Marvin The Martian.
14. How is the weather today?
Perfect. I love springtime in Texas. If only it wasn’t for these allergies…
15. Favorite store?
