Comment to this post, and I will list seven things I want you to talk about. They might make sense or they might be totally random. Then post that list, with your commentary, to your journal. Other people can get lists from you, and the meme merrily perpetuates itself.

My questions from [personal profile] hellkitty 

1.  Favorite holiday
I would have to say Easter, mostly because of the chocolate. ;)
But, it also heralds the coming of motorcycle season. Rebirth and renewal of the flowers and green stuff. I have good memories of getting a new outfit, shoes and Easter hat included, and going to church. Gives me a warm, fuzzy feeling. Kind of like a bunny. Have I ever told you my first hoarding collection was stuffed Easter bunnies? I used to get a new bunny every year in my Easter basket.

2.  Cookies!
Oh man, the best chocolate chip cookies ever were made by Mrs. Harris – the rectory housekeeper. I would oink those suckers down when I worked there counting the money in the kid’s envelopes. I don’t know what she did, but I never could make mine taste like hers. I am a baking failure.
I love double stuff Oreos, but I pull them apart, toss the extra cookie bit and make quadruple stuff Oreos. Yum.
And I don't care for Girl Scout cookies. *ducks rocks* 

3.  Your first fandom crush.
Hmm. Technically, my first fandom was probably ‘Kolchak: The Night Stalker’, back in the 70’s. I didn’t even know what a fandom was, but, oh my little teen panties were all twisted over Carl Kolchak, and by proxy, Darren McGavin. I finally bought those DVD’s a few years ago, and still watch Carl take care of the supernatural nasties, with no thanks from an unknowing, and unappreciative, Chicago.
If you are talking Tformer fandom – my first crush would have to be Bayverse Optimus. Watching him unfold for the first time, I fell in love. First with the mech and then the fandom. And, an obsession was born.

4.  Vacation
Our family was never much for vacations. We had cows when I was a kid, and you just couldn’t leave for days because they needed care. And my dad was always working because we were expensive little buggers. I only recall two vacations as a kid, which involved my mom, sister Barb, my brother Al and me. One long weekend to the Thousand Islands where I remember fishing. And another to Williamsburg, VA. I don’t remember much about that one except the actors in costume.
I wish we would have had time to do more family things. Times were different then. Now, people take vacations even though they don’t have enough money to pay their bills. I, myself, fall into this category, unfortunately. I think am going to the Women On Wheels Ride-In this July, even though I am short on $$. But, I need to get away or I will go batshit crazy.

5.  Funniest thing you’ve seen recently
I’m a bad person – I laughed at this. Hard.

Poor kitty. But, I’m sure he meant to do that.

6.  Last food you really *craved*
A nice, juicy Delmonico steak. *drool* I’ve been checking out the butcher shop lately because I need something bloody pretty soon. I haven’t had one since…gee, it’s gotta be since August - they are so expensive. I usually make due with really raw roast beef, but it’s time to splurge.

7.  Stuff seen in your backyard
This was a co-inky-dink. I was going to post about this in the near future. I pulled up my driveway for lunch the other day, and there were 2 doe in the backyard. I took the pic through the truck windshield, because I was sure they would run off when I opened the door.
Where’s Wal-doe?
Isn't it amazing how they blend into the scene so well.  Nature is awesome.  
Also seen in my backyard are piles of wood pallets to stack firewood, logs to cut up, weeds over a foot tall, groundhogs, fox, rabbits, many birds and the occasional neighborhood cat. And, I have smelled skunk, but have never seen one.

and, for extra credit – Predator Sex.
My head canon -
Since Preds can live to be 1000 years old, they don’t start breeding until middle age – 500, or so – when all the weak and useless genes are pretty much culled out of the tribe.
I think Predator Sex is on the violent side. Females rule the tribes, and are said to be larger than males (guessing 10’ compared to 8’) and more vicious. Pred males must prove their worth as breeding partners, hence the need for all the trophies. The more dangerous the hunt, the better the trophy and the more attention they deserve from the female. Veteran warriors can sire hundreds of offspring. Females fight over the males, and seeing that glowing green blood is an aphrodisiac to the males. Smell is also a very prominent attractant to both sexes, but more-so to the males, as the females do come into a type of heat and give off a ‘child-bearers musk’.
The genitals of the males are hidden in a sheathe, like a snake’s. Coloring follows that particular male’s skin pattern, only paler, and the skin is a bit softer than the rest of the body.
I think it looks like this –
and is proportional to the size of the male Pred. It has a stiff, cartilage spine inside, which means they have a boner all the time. But, you won’t see it because it is hidden inside their body. It’s only used for sex, as they do not eliminate liquid waste.
No oral sex, as they have no tongues. No foreplay or playing around, the female catches her male, tosses him to the ground and rides him. None of that romantic tripe for the Yautja. And, sex with a human would be considered a perversion.
That's my theory and I'm sticking to it!

That was fun - thanks.

BTW, do you accept campers on your property? I swear, I'm about ready to just pack a tent and squat for a couple days. I just adore the wildlife and roughness. LOL

Doing my best to corrupt the youth of America!

Believe it or not, I have never slept out in our woods, ever. I guess it's a matter of having something and not appreciating it. For example, you'd be surprised how many people that live around here have never seen Niagara Falls.
But, now I'm too old to sleep on anything but a bed.
Sure, come on out - I even have tents you can use. And, maybe I'll even let you come back in to use the bathroom. ahahaha!

Here, do the meme -
1. how do you eat a chocolate rabbit?
2. come on, confess. You loved the movie 'Willard'.
3. marshmallow peeps
4. how much would someone have to pay for you to get a tattoo on your face?
5. toenail polish
6. did any teacher inspire you, and how did they do it?
7. first Transformer you ever saw

Sorry so late with a reply -

1. are there aliens among us?
2. update this phrase - 'a loaf of bread, a jug of wine and thou'.
3. have you ever named an article of your clothing? For example, I call my sneakers Skywarps because they are black and purple.
4. pop in bottles vs pop in cans (or 'soda', if you're from one of those areas of the country.)
5. hockey
6. lamest dinosaur
7. YOUR version of Predator sex!
