Yesterday my aunt Barb called, reminding me that it was Grandma's birthday and hinting that we owed her a phone call. So I immediately called her because I'm a good girl (even though I haven't written to her in a long time), and we talked for a while. She's doing pretty well despite a cracked vertebrae (ouch). After calling her, I left my dad a voicemail in a somewhat demonic voice asking, "Did you call your mother today?" Apparently he did, so that's good.
-1- What's your full name?
I'm going to omit the middle and last names because I never tell anyone my middle name and I don't care to reveal my last name over the internet where zillions of potential stalkers can find it. Adrienne E**** C*****
-2- What does your first name mean?
Dark, rich, woman of the sea (it doesn't really suit me, so I stick with Ade - plus, Ade sounds cooler)
-3- What does your middle name mean?
According to babynames.com, it means "God is good" - and it's a boy's name.
-4- What does your last name mean?
According to the aforementioned website, it means "hound of the plain" - yes, that one made me laugh.
-6- Were you named after anyone?
Apparently I was named after someone on my mom's side - I think I had a great great great uncle named Adrian and he had a daughter named Adrienne.
-7- Which of your parents named you?
I don't know whose idea it was. But why they named their daughter "Dark hound of the plain" is beyond me. Ok, that really made me laugh - I'm going to have to use that in a story or something.
-8- What origin is your last name?
Welsh! And a good last name it is.
4 foot 9-ish
140-ish (I'm not big-boned, I'm fat!)
The color of a storm about to strike (gray, and I wish they would fleck yellow when I'm mad... that would be awesome)
There have been many debates over whether it's dark blond or light brown. I say light brown.

I've never been able to do those, even when I was in shape

Dustmite poo, scallops, some chemical in food (probably a sweetener or preservative) that gives me heartburn, and I have a teensy allergy to furry animals, but I still plan to be a cat lady someday.

I'm nice and insightful and funny (people say I am, even though I don't think I'm as funny as they think I am)
-24- What are some negative things about yourself?
I must have some type of social anxiety disorder because I tend to avoid people, even when I don't want to, and I'm terrified of calling people. I also have problems with verbal communication, and I rarely tell people what I want, and people find that annoying. And when I get nervous, I do stupid and klutzy things.
-25- Do you have any mental disorders? and how many?
I haven't been diagnosed with any yet, but I'm almost certain I have some form of social anxiety disorder.
-26- Are you more happy or sad?
I tend to be pretty bipolar, but I hide my emotions, and people have trouble understanding how I'm feeling unless I'm convulsing in laughter, hollering at someone, whimpering, or bouncing up and down and balling my fists at my chest while grinning madly (I do that when I'm excited).

I can be either, it depends on how I feel.

-78- Who would you take a bullet for?
Now now, it's not nice to go stealing bullets, even if it is for someone else. Do you mean to ask if I'd sacrifice my life for someone else? Hmmm, let's see... my close friends, certain family members, and my cats.
