talker

about 45,000

profile pic was taken by my oldest daughter (she wants to be a photographer when she grows up)

annual payment

yes... I've been told I look like actresses Drew Barrymore (I think its the chin?) and Kelli Martin

lights off

earth tones

pepperoni

sushi

Italy (for the food!)

Kat said...

Man, Shannon you are fast! And I thought I'd be first on my own questions :-) And I can see Kelli Martin.

Kat said...

Depends on the situation. But for the most part a listener. And really wanting to be a talker. But I hold back.

87K On a 2004. See what Atlanta will do to you?

My profile picture was taken two years ago at my uncle's 70th birthday party. My cousin was in the picture too. But she got cut out. One of the few decent pictures of me.

Lump sum

Never.

Both. Often.

Browns. Worst is orange or yellow.

I usually get the kids cheese. My mom and I will split - getting mushroom, ham, and beef. And for Michael I usually get veggie lovers. Light on the sauce. Extra sauce for Michael.

Peas.

My first inclination is Scotland or Ireland. For the scenery. And I speak the language. Sort of. But if I really got a wild hare...it would be India. It completely fascinates me.

Angie said...

Listener

Just over 12,000

It's me sitting in front of my webcam with my cluttered kitchen in the background

Lump Sum!!!

When I was younger, I was told Alyssa Milano ALL.THE.TIME

Lights OFF

Red looks great on me. So does black.

Plain cheese. I know, I'm boring.

Sushi. Bleh!!

London, England without hesitation.

Both-- I listen hard, then talk a lot.

How many miles are on your car?
62,000 on a 99 bug

Tell me about your profile picture.
I don't think I have a profile pic on here!

Guess what? You just won the lottery. Annual payment or lump sum?
Lump sum, please and thank you!

Yes. Maggie Gyllenhaal most often (especially in Secretary, much to my father's horror), and also Martina McBride (when my hair is short).

Jewel tones, especially purples and blues. But I never wear them!

If you could live anywhere in the world for a year - where would you go?
Seagrove Beach, Florida. It's my safe haven, my favorite place on the planet, my peace on earth.

Swirl Girl said...

That is the only half way decent picture of me taken in the past two years. And my Hubby's in it.

Jennifer P. said...

If I'm with someone interesting, a listener. If they're boring--I'll do all the talking and they'll love every minute of it :)!

76,885. Not bad for an '02 Caravan!

I was in my backyard in my grungy clothes but with my pretty red lipstick. It just looked the most like "me" of any picture.

Lump me.

When I was in high school I got told I looked like Judy Garland in the Wizard of Oz a lot.

I'm skipping this one due to my current, uh, life situation.

pumpkin orange or light pink

Chicken Pesto

If it's from the sea, it's not for me!

English countryside!

Jennifer P. said...

THese sure are fun!

Sydney said...

Talker or listener? Talker

How many miles are on your car?
93,000

Tell me about your profile picture.
It was taken earlier this year. I don't usually photograph well, but I look happy and pretty in that picture, and I usually don't say that about pictures of me.

Guess what? You just won the lottery. Annual payment or lump sum? annual payment (if it's more than 10 million)

Ever been told you look like someone famous?
Yeah. I've gotten Mia Hamm and Charlize Theron (but I think the waiter was just trying to get a big tip)

Lights on or off? off

What color look best on me? Black or Hot Pink

Pizza...this is tough... depends on the pizza joint. Pizza Hut- Supreme or Hawaiian, Happy Joes-Taco

Not a fan of seafood. It just smells bad

If you could live anywhere in the world for a year - where would you go? New York or Paris

Finding Normal said...

listener

50,000ish? I so don't track those things. That's the hubby's problem!

I need to put on a new pic. It's Addison and I in the backyard last spring, just hanging out.

Annual payment!!!

No, but my freshman year of college, I looked just like someone from everyone's hometown. Apparently I have a generic face. Or it was an easy pick-up line. ha

Lights off if you're thinking what I'm thinking.

I'm a blue and pink kinda girl. Pink is probably the best.

I like plain cheese, but the hubs likes deluxe. I hate the black olives and sausage, but am otherwise happy to eat just about any pizza!

See above!

Italy!!!!

I love this game!

Lula! said...

Wooooooooo...I look forward to this every week. Here we go:

I'm both, but mostly a talker. Big surprise, huh?

Not sure...got my van in March. Less than 8,000, I think.

Profile pic was taken last year in Georgia. No special meaning--just my non-Bette Davis eyes.

Lump sum, baby!

Yes--Sharon Case, "Sharon" on the Young & The Restless. Is she still on there?

Off, with loads of candles.

PINK! And blue, I guess.

Thin crust, cheese, please.

Brussel sprouts

Fiji!

Isle of Capri

Karen said...

Listener ... except when I've had a few wines or cocktails ... then I'm a talker.

Currently don't have a car. But there is heaps of miles on my bicycle!! ;-)

Took it myself .. in a hurry .. in my bedroom..

Lump sum

When I was younger .. Nana Mouskouri

Depends

Probably jewel tones

Chicken BBQ or Chicken garlic

Liver, cauliflour, Tripe

Probably Scotland as the majority of my ancestors are from there. I'd love to be able to step in their footsteps. Coming a close second would be Greece as I have ancestors from there as well and like Kat, India. I've been fascinated by India since I was a young girl. I was given MM Kaye's 'Shadows Of The Moon' and 'The Far Pavillions' for Christmas. She paints such beautiful word pictures of India and life there during that time (Indian Mutiny). Almost makes you feel as though you were there..

Gina said...

Talker

200400-ish

My profile picture is me showing Jonah's (#5) tiny foot to Caleb (#2). And it was so perfect for my blog title.

Lump Sum

Judy Garland. All The Time. Especially when I was a teenager. And wore my LONG hair in 2 french braids. I made it a habit to sing Over The Rainbow to any one who told me I looked like her. I get told that I look like "someone" all the time. I guess I just have "one of those faces."

Lights Off

Red and Pink

Hawaiian or gourmet vegetarian from Papa Murphy's because it has no bell peppers

bell peppers- or any kind of peppers. I can taste them if there was an open pepper in the same fridge as an open food container. My mom tries to be sneeky every once in a while and pick them out of the dinner if we are over- not working.

Australia, or anywhere hot with a sandy ocean beach.

Rhea said...

Listener.

Over 110,000 miles are on your car.

I took my own profile picture in my backyard in my pink cowboy hat about a month ago or so.

If I just won the lottery, I'd want an annual payment, I think...depending on how much it was...

I don't think I've ever been told I look like someone famous. I'm uniquely ME!!

Lights on or off? ROFL Are we talking about what I think we're talking about?

Black looks good on me. So do jewel tones and soft pinks.

I don't eat pizza anymore. It was hard to give up. I love pepperoni.

I just can't bring myself to eat seafood.

If you could live anywhere in the world for a year - where would you go? A foreign country for sure. New Zealand or Europe probably...

Evelyn said...

Talker or listener? Both

How many miles are on your car? 130K!

Tell me about your profile picture. It's of me, my DH, DS, and our two dogs. It was taken by our son (using a tripod and timer) in our backyard.

Guess what? You just won the lottery. Annual payment or lump sum? It would depend on the amount, taxes, etc. Either way, I'd love to win! Of course that would mean that I'd actually have to play first!

Ever been told you look like someone famous? Nope--not yet anyway. I would love to be told I look like Rita Hayworth. Pretty sure that's never gonna happen though!

Lights on or off? I'm assuming you're referring to bedtime activities with this question? If so, either dimmed or off.

What color looks best on you? Navy blue

What kind of pizza do you usually order? Cheese & Pepperoni

Is there a food you despise? God yes! CARROTS! I dry heave just thinking about them!

If you could live anywhere in the world for a year - where would you go? Wow! This one is tough! There are so many places I'd rather live than here--and a year wouldn't be long enough. I think I'll take a pass on this one. My brain is too tired.

Kelly said...

Talker or listener? Both

How many miles are on your car? 15K

Tell me about your profile picture. It's of me at my Mom's surprise party in April

Guess what? You just won the lottery. Annual payment or lump sum? I think lump sum

Ever been told you look like someone famous? When I was younger: Melissa Gilbert as Laura Ingalls Wilder. In high school I was told by a teacher that I looked like a young Shirley McLane. Recently I've been told I look like the girl from Law and Order Criminal Intent (the one w/ Chris Noth)

Lights on or off? Off

What color looks best on you? Blue

What kind of pizza do you usually order? Cheese & Tomato

Is there a food you despise? Brussel Sprouts

If you could live anywhere in the world for a year - where would you go? I think I would go back to Washington and take advantage of all the things around me this time around

GBK Gwyneth said...

Talker or listener? listener, I think.

How many miles are on your car? 98K

Tell me about your profile picture. Me and my girls

Guess what? You just won the lottery. Annual payment or lump sum? let me check with my financial advisor.

Ever been told you look like someone famous? don't think so.

Lights on or off? off.

What color looks best on you? no idea. Black?

What kind of pizza do you usually order? white -- lots of garlic.

Is there a food you despise? raisins? meat?

If you could live anywhere in the world for a year - where would you go? South of France, I think.

Debbie said...

Listener

about 70,000

It is a half a pic taken with my daughter at Christmas.

Are you kidding? I'm a finance person...you always take the lump sum and invest it.

No.

I don't get the lights on or off thing. If I need lights, I turn them on, if I don't I turn them off. I mean, duh ;)

anything bold

Plain ole cheese with my family. If I order a personal size, I put olives and artichokes on it.

Liver. Blech. The last time I had that I was 7 and I still can't get the taste out of my mouth at 44.

For a year...hmmm. Australia probably..

That was fun!

Teri said...

Both, but a lot of talking going on

About 155,000

Doug & I were at a Braves game (naturally) when Alia took our picture. Just as she was snapping it, Doug reached over to put his tongue in my ear. That is so us. I also have that picture in a frame in our den.

Lump sum, all the way

Yes, for years when I was younger, people said I looked like Caroline Kenneday. Then for a few years in my early 30's, I was Meryl Streep-everywhere I went.

Just a little light on. To get the full picture.

Red red red! I have to keep myself from only buying this color always.

I love anything with sun-dried tomatoes, artichokes, and lots of basil.

I hate cooked carrots. Bad memories from childhood.

It's a toss up between San Fran and Paris.

Mama Dawg said...

Listener

too many

It's from a cupcake at my daugter's birthday party. It was Alice in Wonderland themed but it's a funny pic close up.

Lump sum.

Yep

Off

I say turquoise but my mom says pink.

pepperoni, sausage, onions and mushrooms

english peas

The Keys.

jennifersusan said...

I'm both a talker and a listener.
I have no idea how many miles on my car-- my dashboard instruments don't work. ;p
My oldest took my profile picture, on the deck of our house after a snow.
Definately the lump sum.
Of course I look like someone famous--Me. But my fans all call me mommy (repeatedly).
If the sun is out I love the lights off.
Unfortunately I think pink is my best color.
I don't order pizza, the kids like when I make it from scratch.
I despise canned spinach, so it's a good thing I never buy any.
I think I would take Hawaii for a year. I know it's not that exotic, but it sounds like a nice year away from Chicago snow.

Hot Tub Lizzy said...

Both? But apparently when talking also a eye crosser

130,000+

It's me.. in my bathroom.. with my then new glasses.

Whichever means less taxes.

Um... quasi... I get told I look like Sandi Patti when I run in circle's where anyone knows who she is.

Off

Blue

Pepperoni, Canadian Bacon, Onion & Green Pepper

I'm allergic to shellfish so I'm not really wild about it.

Banff Canada.

Tiffany said...

Talker unless it's my hubby then I'm a listener because he talks over me. hee hee

130,000 but it's the second engine. First engine blew at 70,000 miles.

It's just my name. I don't have a recent and/or good photo of myself to post.

Annual payment

No, no one famous

off

olive green

veggie pizza or any combo of veggies

I despise beets. They taste like top soil smells.
