Random, goofy fun

Someone from CafeMom posted this on her page, and I thought it was fun enough to do it myself. :) I've deleted some questions because I just have no idea what they are.

A Random Number of Things About Me

1. First thing you wash in the shower?
my hair

2. What color is your favorite hoodie?
don’t have one

3. Do you like coffee?
I like cream with a little bit of coffee – really, I love coffee, a bit too much

5. How are you feeling RIGHT now?

7. Do you say aim or a-i-m?
what is that anyway?

8. What are you?
Ooh, my friend, G, hates this question. But that’s usually because it’s in the context of ethnicity and the people asking are either racist or ignorant.

9. Could you eat your favorite food everyday for a month and not get sick of it?
Heck, yeah, if it’s borani or roast duck.

10. What are you craving?

12. What comes to mind when I say cabbage?

16. Have you ever counted to 1,000?
Why would I want to? And when I try to count sheep to fall asleep, I lose track around 20 and have to start all over again.

I prefer soft serve type ice creams and it’s easy to lick those.
