the last word, v7

Wow, it's been a while since I've done one of these.  When I was on the plane the other day without any reading material, I was going through my notes and I stumbled over this list, which I had kind of forgotten about.

People Magazine has this feature thing on the last page of their magazine.  On the last page, they have a feature called the last word (so clever!) where a celebrity answers a few questions on the last things they've done.
So even though I'm not a celebrity or anything (wait. what?!), I'm going to go ahead and answer the questions.  Because, why not?

The last form of public transportation that I took:  I was just in San Francisco and I took the BART.  Even though I was distracted and missed my stop (that was pretty much 3 minutes away) and ended up going way far out of my way (pretty much a full hour when all was said and done), I love the BART.  Is that weird?

The last good deed that I did:  Well, the other day when I was going to my son's soccer game, there was this homeless guy looking pretty down and cold and wet, holding a cardboard sign on the street corner.  So I gave him $10.  I guess that was kind of a good deed.

The last home improvement that I made:  You know, it's been a bit since we've made any major home improvements.  I guess the closest I can come is getting a new washer/dryer.  Pretty boring.

The last card that I sent: I am horrible at remembering to send cards for important events.  I really am.  I try everything to get to it, and I end up with 50 written out but not sent cards, just sitting there.  Recently though, a friend had an unexpected death in their family, so I definitely sent a card.

The last song that made me rock out: Hm.  I'm pretty sure Megan and I were rocking out to "I Love Your Shoes," by Furniture in the car on the way home from the doctor's office.

The last time that I was scared:  Well, I was a little scared to walk alone from my hotel at night in SF, which I usually really enjoy doing.  Unfortunately, I was staying in a hotel that was sort of on the edge of a sketchy part of the city.  It was a really cool hotel though.

The last piece of advice that my mom gave me:  Sheesh, I don't even know... may have been about not trying to contact this stalker-like person that has been emailing/mailing things to certain people in my family for a while.  At this point, I have listened to her advice.  No promises though.

The last chore that I did:  Well, I do this chore every freaking day of my life it seems - flip the laundry.  I put the washed stuff in the dryer, the dry stuff in the folding area, and the dirty stuff in the wash.  Sounds mundane I suppose, but doing laundry doesn't usually bug me.

The last family vacation that I went on:  Well, I've gone off a few times without the family fairly recently - Boston, NYC, SF and SC.   But towards the end of the summer, all of us went to NC and spent a few weeks on the Outer Banks.

The last game that I played:  Oh man, I play games every freaking day.  It's slightly addictive.  The very last one I played though was SongPop on my iPhone about an hour ago.  I love that game.  Wanna play?
