My Fresh Hell
Life in Scribbletown.

Fill In The Blanks

2005-05-04
Taken from BettyAlready:

My uncle once: Was badly burned in a laboratory fire. While recovering, he suffered a heart attack. Now, I think heíll outlive us all.

Never in my life: Would I abandon my children.

When I was five: My sister was born and I could already read.

High School was: Fraught with confusion and angst.

I will never forget: To brush my teeth twice a day.

I once met: The Clash and Colleen Dewhurst. But not at the same time.

Thereís this girl I know who: Hated my guts because she wanted to date my boyfriend (now my husband). Years later, she died of a blood clot in her brain.

Once, at a bar: I slept with the singer. That was a long time ago.

By noon Iím usually: Eating my sandwich in front of the computer. My keyboard is disgusting.

Last night: There was nothing on TV to watch. So I read a book instead.

If I only had: Decent furniture and clear skin.

Next time I go to church, I: Will ask myself, ďWhat the hell am I doing in a church?Ē

When I turn my head left, I see: My plants and a bit of the outside world through my window.

When I turn my head right, I see: My office door and artwork, done by some obnoxious guy, hanging in the lobby.

You know Iím lying when: I canít keep my story straight. Iím not a good liar.

What I miss most about the eighties: Nothing. MTV ruined the music and the fashions did not flatter anyone. I mean, what was with those swoopy Flock of Seagulls hairdos?

If I was a character written by Shakespeare, Iíd be: Cordelia.

By this time next year: I hope both my children are sleeping soundly through the night. And my novel will be finished.

A better name for me would be: Frankly, I like my name. I wouldnít change it.

I have a hard time understanding: What the hell is wrong with people. Why are so many people so inconsiderate?

If I ever go back to school Iíll: Clearly have gone insane.

You know I like you if: I talk to you.

If I won an award, the first person Iíd thank would be: The person who nominated me.

Darwin, Mozart, Slim Pickens, and Geraldine Ferraro: Smart and misunderstood.

Take my advice, never: Date a guy just because heís cute.

My ideal breakfast is: Hot coffee, a bagel with cream cheese, chocolate covered strawberries, the newspaper and QUIET.

A song I love, but do not have is: ďFMĒ by Steely Dan

If you visit my hometown, I suggest: The museums, Carytown and Maymont Park.

Tulips, character flaws, microchips, and track stars: Lovely, inevitable, everywhere and short-lived.

Why wonít anyone: Turn out the lights when they leave the room?

If you spend the night at my house, donít: Expect things to be clean. And, please, no snoring.

Iíd stop my wedding: Long enough to sign a lucrative multi-book contract with a publisher.

The world could do without: George Bush, poverty and stupidity.

Iíd rather lick the belly of a cockroach than: Ewww. Thatís just nasty. I would make a very bad contestant on Survivor. I donít do bugs.

My favorite blonde is: Red, my daughter.

Paper clips are more useful than: Toxic waste. But then again, what isnít?

If I do anything well, itís: Write, read, garden and cook.

The last time I was drunk, I: Was probably in my twenties.

And, by the way: Iím free for lunch!
