When was the last time you threw up? My last migraine. It's been months (September?) but they are completely dreadful.

What’s your favorite word or phrase? "That's cool." (Followed closely by, "What the fuck?" I swear entirely too much.)

Name 3 people who made you smile today. 1) A woman whose kids I babysat for back in the 1970s -- she contacts me every now and again and it always makes me happy. 2) A coworker who told me some jokes that I thoroughly enjoyed. 3) My boss, who affectionately finds me unintentionally funny.

What were you doing at 8 am this morning? Wondering why I'm just constitutionally unable to be ready to leave at 8 am.

Who is the last person you sent a comment/message to on Facebook? Judy. Ick.

Ever go camping? Yes, when I was a Girl Scout.

Do you have a tan? No. And I hope never to tan again. My dermatologist has made it abundantly clear that a tan is not my friend.

Have you ever lost anything down a toilet? just my pride (Kwizgiver's answer and I loved it)

What is your guilty pleasure? Nancy Grace on CNN Headline News ("Justice for Caylee!")

Do you use smiley faces on the computer a lot? No.

What do you usually do during the day? Write

Do you hate anyone right now? "Hate" is a rather strong word ...

Do you use the word “Hello” daily? Yes

How many kids do you want when you’re older? None! If I had a baby when I was older than I am now, I'd have to shoo away tabloid reporters and Barbara Walters

How old will you be turning on your next birthday? 52

Have you ever been to Six Flags? Yes

How did you get one of your scars? Last April, before dawn, we actually had a 5.2 earthquake. Here. In Chicago! Either my response startled my cat Joey, or his startled me, but as he and I were scrambling out of bed, he scratched the inside of my left knee. It wasn't deep, but for some reason it left a scar.

I like this one better

Grease is the way I am feeling

Tonight I'm going see the ten billionth production of Grease to play Chicago (it started here, you know). What makes this one special? TAYLOR HICKS as Teen Angel!

It's completely ridiculous how much I'm looking forward to this. Here's hoping I can refrain from yelling out "SOUL PATROL!" when he comes on for his number.
