48 Things You Could Not Care Less About
1. FIRST NAME? For the purposes of this blog, Tolajyn.
2. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE? I was given this name by the Silver Elves, about seven years ago.
3. WHEN DID YOU LAST CRY? When did I last think about MCM so hard it made me cry? Thursday.
4. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING? Not particularly. But I've met one or two folks who like it for some unknown reason.
5. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCHMEAT? Not a huge lunchmeat fan, so I'll eat whatever's available.
6. IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU? I sure hope so. But probably not.
7. DO YOU HAVE A JOURNAL? You're reading it!
8. DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS? Nope, they got yanked when I was 8. They took my adenoids too, but they've since grown back which is why I have the weird nasally thing going on with my voice that I LOATHE.
9. WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP? Not for all the tea in China. But when I was in college I was in ROTC and I went rappelling a few times. I got to the point where I wanted to try it out of a helicopter but I never got the chance.
10. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CEREAL? Count Chocula of course!
11. DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF? I wear Birkenstocks 90% of the time. The one pair of sneakers I do have, I bought a half-size too big on purpose, just so that I DON'T have to untie the laces to take them off. The alternative is replacing the laces with soft-stretch elastic which I did to the DD's shoes when she was small. Worked like a charm!
12. DO YOU THINK YOU ARE STRONG? No. Neither physically, mentally, or emotionally.
13. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ICE CREAM FLAVOR? Depends on the day. I like Farr's Huckleberry a whole lot, but there are just so many other flavours out there!
14. SHOE SIZE? Before pregnancy, 7 1/2. After pregnancy, 8 to 8 1/2. But in Birkenstocks I am still a 37 regular.
5. RED OR PINK? You seriously have to ask?
16. WHAT IS THE LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT YOURSELF? I am too tightly-wound.
17. WHO DO YOU MISS THE MOST? Obviously, MCM. He's been gone 2 1/2 months now.
18. DO YOU WANT EVERYONE TO SEND THIS BACK TO YOU? Everyone as in the three people in the world besides my mother that reads this? Knock yourselves out!
19. WHAT COLOR PANTS, SHIRT AND SHOES ARE YOU WEARING? Blue jeans, pink t-shirt, and one hand-knit snock and one orphan sock. We don't wear shoes in the house.
20. LAST THING YOU ATE? A Godiva caramel that my mother bought for me.
21. WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW? The Dividing Line Broadcasting Network. It's Rene's show and he is playing Porcupine Tree's Renevant. I am not loving it, although he played an hour of Yes awhile ago.
22. IF YOU WERE A CRAYON, WHAT COLOR WOULD YOU BE? Any and all pinks.
23. FAVORITE SMELL? Patchouli. And Grapefruit Kiss lotion from Vicki's. It's discontinued.
24. WHO WAS THE LAST PERSON YOU TALKED TO ON THE PHONE? The DD. She was downstairs watching TV and I am upstairs. I hate yelling through the house so it was easier to call her cell phone. Before that it was my mother.
25. THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE YOU ARE ATTRACTED TO? I don't know. If it's a guy, probably how much he looks like Jon Anderson. I'm not attracted to women.

32. FAVORITE FOOD? Roast beef with smashed potatoes and gravy, and baby carrots. I request this for my birthday dinner and one year I even got it for Christmas dinner. When I graduated college from BYUH, my mom and grandmother came over and one night they made it for me. Now that is love.

42. WHAT DID YOU WATCH LAST NIGHT ON TV? Did I watch TV last night? I think I watched The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants the night before.
