Twenty Random Questions I Found When I Googled "20 Random Questions" (And Their Answers)

1.  Do you have a middle name?
- I most certainly do.  Although my Dad does not.

2.  Have you ever fallen in front of a bunch of people you know?
- Not that I can remember.  This doesn't mean it hasn't happened, just that if I have, I don't remember.

3.  Do you like Harry Potter?
- The character?  Sure.  The books?  Yes.

4.  Do you still own a stuffed animal that you had when you were young?
-Absolutely.  We still snuggle most nights.

5.  Do you sing loudly in the shower?
- No.  I don't sing in the shower particularly.  I think a lot, but I don't sing.

6.  What were you doing at midnight last night?
-Sleeping.

7.  What's a word that you say a lot?
- OK.

8.  What is your wallpaper on your phone?
- A cool picture of rocks I took.  Big rocks.  Looking down on them.  Rocks from China Beach.  Very zen.

9.  Which Disney character do you like best?
- Um.  I'm blanking on Disney characters.  Let me google for a minute.  How about the Tramp.  (The dog)

10.  Can you roll your tongue?
- Yes.  And my Rs.

11.  Do you twirl your spaghetti or cut it?
- Twirl a little, but not in a crazy way.  If I'm worried about spillage (red sauce) I'll cut it.

12.  Any tattoos or piercings?
- Yes, both.  Am considering another tattoo... not sure though.  It'd be always visible and I'm not sure I'm ready for that or want that.

13.  What's something you envy about the opposite sex?
- No periods.

14.  What kind of pet do you have?
- The kind that doesn't exist yet...well, I mean, dogs exist, but I don't have one as a pet.  Yet.

15.  Before you started this survey, what were you doing?
- Writing a post about something else.  And then goggling questions.  I don't know why I suddenly thought "hey, I feel like answering random questions!"

16.  Do you remember your dreams?
- Some of them vividly.  Some of them slip away as I wake up, even when I don't want them to.  Some of them, no.

17.  What was the last movie you saw?
- I really don't remember the last movie I saw in a theatre.  The last movie I saw (at home) was "World War Z"

18.  What is on the walls of the room you're in?
- Four photos I took that have been printed on canvas.  A clock, and three painting reproductions (prints).

19.  When did you last step outside and what were you doing?

20.  With the exception of the computer, what can you hear?
