I've Never Lost a Kidney

Kevin, I officially name you my meme dealer. I can always count on you for a meme to steal. Yay you!


  • What is your salad dressing of choice?
    I enjoy the balsamic and oil but if I am feeling decadent, I go for the bleu cheese.
  • What is your favorite fast food restaurant?
    I do not enjoy the fast food so much but if I HAD to, I'd go with Wendy's. (hellllo frosty!)
  • What is your favorite sit down restaurant?
    In The Cruz, it is The Malabar. Here? I haven't eaten out enough to tell ya.
  • On average, what size tip do you leave at a restaurant?
  • What food could you eat every day for two weeks and not get sick of?
    I am afraid to say sushi because if I did, in fact, get sick of it that would be the saddest thing in the universe. I will go with eggs.
  • Name three foods you detest above all others.
    Pickles, liver, and oftentimes tomatoes.
  • What is your favorite dish to order in a Chinese restaurant?
    I do not enjoy the Chinese. (Not as a race but as a type of food.)
  • What are your pizza toppings of choice?
    I like the pepperoni but I also like the Veggie Deluxe.
  • What do you like to put on your toast?
  • What is your favorite type of gum?
    I do not chew gum. (TMJ)


  • Number of contacts in your cell phone?
    Approximately 100. I know, I'm like SO popular.
  • Number of contacts in your e-mail address book?
    I'd at least double the number of my cell phone contacts and then multiply it by 1.
  • What is your wallpaper on your computer?
    A picture of my dog.
  • What is your screensaver on your computer?
    It goes into a slideshow of pictures from my good-bye parties in Santa Cruz.
  • Are there naked pictures saved on your computer?
    Um. . .
  • How many land line phones do you have in your house?
  • How many televisions are in your house?
  • What kitchen appliance do you use the least?
    I got rid of them in the move but now, I'd say the coffee grinder. I don't drink coffee.
  • What is the format of the radio station you listen to the most?
    If I listened to the radio it would likely be classical. I can't stand commercials on the radio so I avoid them.
  • How many sex toys do you own that require batteries?
    I cannot answer this question for fear it will incriminate me.


  • What do you consider to be your best physical attribute?
    My eyes. Come hither dahlin'.
  • Are you right handed or left handed?
  • Do you like your smile?
    I do. (Thanks Mom for all that orthodontia.)
  • Have you ever had anything removed from your body?
    Wisdom teeth, tonsils, adnoids and a mole.
  • Would you like to?
    Yeah, if you can remove fat painlessly, go for it. (I love this answer Kevin so I am stealing it!)
  • Do you prefer to read when you go to the bathroom?
    No. I don't take that long.
  • Which of your five senses do you think is keenest?
    Definitely not my eyesight. I'd say my sense of smell.
  • When was the last time you had a cavity?
    I think I have one right now.
  • What is the heaviest item you lift regularly?
    A box of books. Oh wait- regularly you ask? I'd have to say Tut, Hillz big ol' cat.
  • Have you ever been knocked unconscious?
    Not knocked but I have fainted.


  • If it were possible, would you want to know the day you were going to die?
    Good god no.
  • If you could change your first name, what would you change it to?
    I use the nickname "Vivianne" when I am making a reservation or ordering food to be picked up because NO ONE can get my real first name right. So, let's say Viv. Though Amelia is my favorite girl's name.
  • How do you express your artistic side?
    Writing, drawing in charcoal, knitting, crafts. I'm learning to embroider.
  • What color do you think you look best in?
    Lately, I am thinking green.
  • How long do you think you could last in a medium security prison?
    I could do it for a couple years. But I don't want to. My self-defense training would come in handy. Huh, as well as my slight interest in girl-on-girl action I bet.
  • Have you ever swallowed a non-food item by mistake?
    I accidentally ate a bug once. And I am pretty sure I have eaten my fair share of hair but that was by accident and just writing about it makes me feel like puking.
  • If we werenÂ’t bound by societyÂ’s conventions, do you have a relative you would make a pass at?
    Hmmm, I only have a couple of male cousins most of which are younger than me. Let's say NO to this one, shall we?
  • How often do you go to church?
    Too long ago to recall.
  • Have you ever saved someoneÂ’s life?
    No but that sounds like a pretty cool thing to do.
  • Has someone ever saved yours?
    Not so far. But if I ever choke in a restaurant I hope my savior is hot and single.

For this last section, if you would do it for less or more money, indicate how much.

  • Would you walk naked for a half mile down a public street for $100,000?
    That's a lot of cold, hard cash. I'd throw my poor body image in the gutter and walk, sure.
  • Would you kiss a member of the same sex for $100?
    Hell, I'd do it for free depending on who it is.
  • Would you have sex with a member of the same sex for $10,000?
    Again, depending on who it is, I might even do it for free. Or for like an ice cream cone.
  • Would you allow one of your little fingers to be cut off for $200,000?
    Absolutely not.
  • Would you never blog again for $50,000?
    I'd say I wouldn't but then I would blog under a false name. Sly! Shhh, don't tell.
  • Would you pose naked in a magazine for $250,000?
    That depends, who is the photographer? I want it tastefully done and I want a stipulation in my contract about airbrushing. I will definitely need airbrushing.
  • Would you drink an entire bottle of hot sauce for $1000?
    The horror! Never. Just sitting near hot sauce makes my mouth hurt.
  • Would you, without fear of punishment, take a human life for $1,000,000?
    No. If I don't support the death penalty, I probably wouldn't kill someone. Even if that someone was G. Dub. (Though THAT is tempting.)
  • Would you shave your head and get your entire body waxed for $5,000?
    Can I lose 60 pounds before I shave my head? Then, sure, I'll do it and after that I will launch my swimming career.
  • Would you give up watching television for a year for $25,000?
    Sure. TV isn't that great. Though I do so love me some TLC and Food Network.

WOW!!! That was one of the best meme's I've read in 2 years. I have TMJ too.... but sometimes I just MUST have a piece of gum. I loved your answers to all the nekkid questions.....esp. about shaving your head and losing 66 lbs? Funny and brutally honest.

Jenny said...

AND this make me miss you :(

Claire said...

Good stuff. After reading yours and Kevin's I think I will have to play along today.

Re: Dare-ology,


Seriously, Sizz, you have got down every single of my own answers there...sheesh.

why do I feel like I'm in the Twilight Zone (neenee neenee, neenee neenee...picture a man walking between sight and sound...)

A Voice For My Random Thoughts said...

Sizzle.....I'm a friend of Mikey Santa Cruz and been lurking here for months...Love your Travels, Trials and Tribulations.... You have some awesome photos too. I have fiddled with a Mikey Picture after he announced being S.C. Aids Project "Poster Child of the Month"...I send you the URL for your enjoyment and amusement...Janet

SJ said...

I just did this meme Friday on The Write Coast! Must be the Meme of the Moment. It's a good way to get to know a bit more about someone.

All those people who say they WOULD drink an entire bottle of hot sauce are IN.SANE. I wouldn't even drink a CAPFUL.

Nihilistic said...

All of the dare ones I pretty much already do or have done on a regular with same sex, shave your head...Ehhhhh...

Dustin said...

"...but if I am feeling decadent, I go for the bleu cheese."

I'm sorry, but we can't be friends anymore. Bleu Cheese is scientifically proveb to be the devil.

Karl said...

Lord, I have such a crush on you. Stop being so hot!

JustRun said...

I'm with you on the hot sauce. Can't even be in the same room- bleck! Yuck.

Melissa said...

You already know I'm keifing this meme.

EXCELLENT answers, madam.

Neil said...

I've never met anyone who didn't like Chinese food, which only makes me want to meet you more!

Brookelina said...

Oh thank goodness, a worthy meme to steal. Thank you luv.

kapgar said...

I still stand by my painless fat sucking comment. If I find a way, I'll let you know. ;-)

Oh, and don't worry, you're not the only one to have lost Dustin's friendship as a result of this meme.
