if coconut was a fruit

Okay, I'm about to start my comparative analysis of "The Handbook of Training Evaluation and Measurement Methods (Improving Human Performance Series)" and "Implementing the Four Levels: A Practical Guide for Effective Evaluation of Training Programs" but need something mindless for a few minutes.

Last night, I borrowed this from the adorable little girl at Life @ the White House. I’m pretty sure I’ve done the exact same one before – back in the days of myspace – but thought I would do it again here. For posterity’s sake. It is meant to be a survey that you list your own answers to, but it is so much more fun to have your significant other (or sibling, friend, etc.) answer the questions for you. You find out a lot about what the person pays attention to, how they see you, and what parts of your personality they really notice. Larry did a great job and really surprised me with some of his answers. So, even if you don’t feel like reading the responses he thought I would say, you should do this survey with somebody else. You’ll learn at least one new thing, I promise. And we all know that learning is a good thing.

1. What is your current obsession?
“Your job – you love your job and you love to see those people go from the beginning to the end and whether they make it or not”

2. What is your favorite memory?
“Vegas on your 30th”

3. Starbucks or Peet's?
“Neither, you don’t drink that much coffee”

4. What's for dinner?
“Half-price appetizers or something on the grill”

5. What would you eat for your last meal?
”That white wine chicken you make is pretty good”

6. What's the last thing you bought?
He says to see my recent blog and look at the picture of the giant sack

”Probably, you dated lots of people when you were younger”

“Ben & Jerry’s”

”very grounded, faith and family”

21. What are you going to do after this?
”get a glass of wine, some chocolate, get on the couch and tell him not to put it on baseball”

22. What are your favorite movies?
”You like the event of going to the movies more than the actual movie. You like the social action of going to Alamo drafthouse – it’s like going bowling or roller skating… it doesn’t matter how good you are at it or how good the movie is, you just think it is fun”

23. What is your favorite fruit?
”You like fruit. Pineapples. If coconut was a fruit you would like that.”

”probably your family, especially your sister, but all of your family is successful, including your parents and you are proud of your family”

29. What do you like most about yourself?
”that’s a hard one because you don’t want to seem narcissistic. I guess I don’t know because you don’t say “I did this” or “look at me” “

30. What is your go-to nail polish color?
”red”

31. What do you fear most?
”being 40 and not married”

I think Larry did a wonderful job. I could hear his voice as I was reading the answers. It made me laugh.

All of the answers were very honest. I like the fact that he knows what the deadline is! ;)
