AW Monday Meme #4

Hiya and welcome to the first Monday Meme of 2006.

One of the things memes can do is give us some insight into who each other are. There are a number of folks who have posted a "100 Things" meme that went around a while back. You can learn a lot about folks reading those. I won't ask you for that one (today). But I have ten questions for you to answer so we can get a glimpse

1. What is your most hated and dreaded household chore. Why?
2. Do you ever drink out of the beverage container or always pour a glass?
3. Over the counter pain relief: Asprin, acetominiphen or ibuprophen? (if those aren't your options, what are?)
4. What was the first car (or motorcycle if that's the case) you bought for yourself?
5. It's a lovely, sunny weekend day. What would you go do if you could do whatever you wanted to do (within your usual means).
6. Name your favorite board game.
7. How many blankets do you sleep under and how many pillows do you use?
8. How many pets and of what type do you currently live with? You may name them if you wish.
9. Biggest grammar peeve.
10. Favorite flower or other plant, should you not be into flowers.

Simple, huh? As always, the AWMonday Meme tag is appreciated. You can find the html for the tag by going to the Monday Meme thread.

01. Detailing the fridge. Hot water on cold glass shelves scares me.
02. I go either way. *L*
03. Anything, everything. Not picky.
04. Honda Civic that died before it's time.
05. I miss the Gold Country. It's been way too long.
06. Do not have one. I'm an only child. :p
07. One quilt, one duvet, one afghan, three pillows... four if you count the herbal one that I hold while I sleep.
08. One. Feline. Called PK.
09. Who/whom.
10. Lotus flowers

Paprikapink reminded me that I didn't answer these myself...
1. What is your most hated and dreaded household chore. Scrubbing the tub.Why? It's got one of those glass shower enclosures and in addition to all the contortions it takes to get to all the spots (unless I get inside the tub to do it) I always whack an elbow or a knee or an ankle on the dang metal track.
2. Do you ever drink out of the beverage container or always pour a glass? I mostly drink from a glass bottle of Arizona Diet Green Tea, but if I'm having something else it'll be from a glass - so both.
3. Over the counter pain relief: Asprin, acetominiphen or ibuprophen? (if those aren't your options, what are?)Ibuprophen - nothing else works for me nearly as well.
4. What was the first car (or motorcycle if that's the case) you bought for yourself? A 1979 Ford Pinto (not the hatchback!)in a nice burgundy color. Drove that car for ages, gave it to my younger brother and he drove it till it died.
5. It's a lovely, sunny weekend day. What would you go do if you could do whatever you wanted to do (within your usual means). What I should do: go to a museum or see a show or go to a park. I'll probably stay inside and read or surf the web and post.
6. Name your favorite board game. Scrabble
7. How many blankets do you sleep under and how many pillows do you use? Right now I've got 4 blankets. There's a chenile microfiber (soooo soft and fluffy)a velux, a cotton waffle weave and a crochet afghan. It's a bit chilly at night and we keep the heater off so I pile on the blankets.
8. How many pets and of what type do you currently live with? You may name them if you wish. We have just the one now, Yoghurt. He's a cat.
9. Biggest grammar peeve. Your/You're. It drives me crazy. In second place is "me and my friends" which I was constantly correcting the kids about. It's gotten to the place where I think that perhaps that phrase is too embedded in the collective consciousness that trying to apply the proper construction is just futile. Still, it irks me.
10. Favorite flower or other plant, should you not be into flowers. Star Jasmine. I love the scent.
