Saturday Night Genealogy Fun. What they hey, I guess I can do it too:
For this week's mission (should you decide to accept it), I want you to:
(1) Use the Facebook "Learn about Each Other" meme being passed around this week and answer the 32 questions as listed below.
Tell us in a blog post of your own, in a comment to this blog post, or in a status line on Facebook or a stream post on Google Plus. Be sure to leave a link to your post in Comments on this post.
So here are my answers. I copied Randy's blue, even though I hate the HTML. I noticed that Randy's list had no 5, 27, or 28, so I looked on Facebook and discovered multiple variations of the meme (no surprise there). I found a question 5 I liked and added that, and my cousin had the question 20 I've used. So mine is actually a list of 31 questions, whereas Randy has only 29!
1. Who are you named after? I was named for my two Jewish great-grandfathers, following the Ashkenazi tradition to name children after deceased relatives. My mother used the initials: Janice is for Joyne (Gorodetsky), and Marie is for Moishe (Meckler).
2. Last time you cried? A few days ago watching a sob story on the news.
3. Do you like your handwriting? Not as much as I used to. I used to write in a beautiful cursive, but I seem to be getting sloppy in my middle age.
4. What is your favorite lunch meat? Genoa salami.
5. Spicy or sweet? Spicy, every time!
6. Longest relationship? Father, uncles, and aunts: almost 55 years.
7. Do you still have your tonsils? Yes.
8. Would you bungee jump? Hell no.
9. What is your favorite kind of cereal? Hot: Cornmeal mush with sugar and whole milk. Cold: Lucky Charms with whole milk.
10. Do you untie your shoes when you take them off? Yes, almost every time.
11. Do you think you're strong? Physically: Not really anymore (work injuries). Emotionally: Yes, most of the time.
12. Favorite ice cream? Ben & Jerry's Coffee Coffee Buzz Buzz Buzz; almost anyone's Mint Chocolate Chip.
13. What is the first thing you notice about a person? Hair, face, eyes.
14. Football or baseball? Both, but football a lot more.
15. What color pants are you wearing? Gray.
16. Last thing you ate? Ferrero Rocher hazelnut chocolate.
17. What are you listening to? The TV in the bird room, which is currently airing Sesame Street on PBS Kids.
18. If you were a crayon, what color would you be? Royal Blue.
19. What is your favorite smell? Maybe frying bacon, even though I don't like to eat it very much.
20. Who was the last person you talked to on the phone? My friend Vernester.
21. Are you married? No.
22. Hair color? Medium brown with shots of gray.
23. Eye color? Brown (I'm full of it up to there).
24. Favorite foods to eat? Rare steak, shrimp, scallops, crab, mango, sushi.
25. Scary movies or happy endings? Scary movies.
26. Last movie you watched? Wild Kratts: A Creature Christmas with my birds.
27. What color shirt are you wearing? White and brown aloha shirt.
28. What is your favorite holiday? Passover/Pesach.
29. Beer or Wine? Yes! To be more specific, my favorites are Guinness and Gewürztraminer.
30. Night owl or morning person? Now night owl, but I was an absolute morning person until a few years ago.
31. Favorite day of the week? Friday, for Grimm and Sleepy Hollow, or Tuesday, for NCIS and NCIS: New Orleans.
If you feel like contributing your answers, feel free to post them as a response to my list!
Genealogy is like a jigsaw puzzle, but you don't have the box top, so you don't know what the picture is supposed to look like. As you start putting the puzzle together, you realize some pieces are missing, and eventually you figure out that some of the pieces you started with don't actually belong to this puzzle. I'll help you discover the right pieces for your puzzle and assemble them into a picture of your family.
