Taking a break while the second pot of coffee brews, and saw this over on kradical's blog, and figured, oh what the hell, let's.
1. ARE YOU NAMED AFTER SOMEONE? Not really. Jewish tradition is to take the first inital of a deceased relative of a different gender, and use that. So somewhere there's a male relative whose name began with L, but I don't know who it was.
2. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED? Breaking-down crying? A few days after my dad's funeral, this spring. But in general, letting tears escape is a healthy stress-reliever, and I don't keep track of it.
3. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING? Yes, because I can see influences of both my parents in it. It's not particularly pretty, but it gets the job done.
4. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH MEAT? Deli-roasted turkey.
5. DO YOU HAVE ANY KIDS? No (not counting anything with four legs)
6. IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON, WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS W/YOU? Yes, but I'd call myself out on my bullshit a lot.

11. DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF? Only if they have laces.
