Zero to Hero Day 27


Today’s task was to revisit a previous challenge. Now maybe it’s just my overactive imagination at work here but I feel that the activities are overly repetitious and pretty boring besides. My favorite challenges have been the ones that I substituted with a homemade quiz. I love making quizzes. Despite the intensive research I put into their development (no sarcasm here I really do) I am not the least bit assured of their accuracy. Even so they give me an excuse to ask weird questions which is one of my all-time favorite activities. I also feel that I’ve gotten to know the participants a little better =) So to those brave souls who have participated in my quizzes thank you!

Here’s a list of 50 things I got from The War in My Brain

Were you named after anyone?

I believe my dad named me after a pretty woman he ran into while avoiding my birth. I was in the hospital for several days after I was born undergoing a lot of unnecessary testing. I was born with cheekbones so high the doctors thought I’d be blind. My dad is Cherokee the cheekbone issue was not the weird deformity they thought it was.

When was the last time you cried?

A few days ago grieving over the loan situation and my personal failings.

Do you like your handwriting?

No it is horrendous I can’t even read it most of the time

I am not that keen on lunch meats to be honest but I guess turkey and chorizo slices together

Do you untie your shoes when taking them off?

If being stubborn has anything to do with personal strength I am a fucking super hero. But I think flexibility shows more strength so not really.

What is your favorite ice cream?

For years it was mint chocolate chip in recent years I have developed a taste for various Ben and Jerry’s flavors that involve peanut butter or caramel. Interesting fact when I was pregnant I ate a lot frozen fruit pops and now I no longer get brain freeze.

Them flapping around in an effort to get my attention. So maybe their hands?

I miss my grandmother who died around the time Isadora was born, we were very close. I also miss my mom and stepdad who I haven’t seen in years.

Any tattoos?

Yes around my left calf I have a tribal band that matches the one on Sam’s left arm. I couldn’t get mine on my arm because of nerve problems. I looked at my grandma before deciding where my tattoos would go I don’t want them to get stretched out or sag with age.
