I was tagged for a meme by Totally Scrappy! I've never actually been tagged for a meme before, so this will be fun.
1) LAST MOVIE YOU SAW IN A THEATER.
Prince Caspian - It was rather different than the book, but I still thought it was a great movie. Jeff and I don't really see many theater movies, but last night we watched The Bee Movie on DVD. I do still want to see Indiana Jones, Kung-Fu Panda, and Wall-E before they leave the theater.
2) WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING?
I'm in the middle of re-reading The Poisonwood Bible (on my all-time favorite list) and also reading The Nanny Diaries, which is certainly entertaining. And also a little sad, that some kids have the kind of existence where they get pawned off on a Nanny while Mom goes to Junior League meetings all day. I also just finished The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane and The Tale of Despereaux by Kate Di Camillo, both of which I loved, and will definitely be bought at some point for our future children's library.
3) FAVORITE BOARD GAME?
Scrabble. Without a doubt. It involves words and dictionaries. What more could you ask for?
4) FAVORITE MAGAZINE?
I am a sucker for magazines. My favorite right now is World magazine. Kind of like Newsweek, but from a Christian perspective. National Geographic is also an all-time favorite.
5) FAVORITE SMELLS?
Fresh laundry or fresh bread baking in the oven. For Jeff it would be either chlorine (a la swimming pool) or grapefruit. I am not kidding about that. I always say that if I were to design his ideal perfume for me to wear it would be a combination of those two.
6) FAVORITE SOUNDS?
Babies laughing. Or maybe the gentle ba-bump that I hear when my head is on Jeff's chest.
7) WORST FEELING IN THE WORLD?
The feeling you get when your pager sounds at 4am to jolt you out of a near sleep and you see the number 5709 (the ER extension) come up and realize that you have to go back down there for an admission.
8)WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU THINK OF WHEN U WAKE?
"Come on, Aubrey, it is time to get up." Then I repeat to myself: "I like to run in the morning. I like to run in the morning. I do, I really do, like to run in the morning."
9) FAVORITE FAST FOOD PLACE?
Chick-Fil-A or Subway. Or if I see one, a Panera.
10) FUTURE CHILDS NAME?
I'm not really sure. I always said Emma but now I feel like that name is a little overdone, so I doubt we'll use it. Maybe Calvin for a boy? I feel like boy names are harder for me to think of. But I do know that we'll definitely use Ruth as a middle name for a daughter (after both my mom and my grandma, and also my dad's sister, and it's my middle name) and probably Mitchell for a boy middle name (my mom's maiden name). I also like the name Jane for a middle name - Jeff's Grandma and his mom's middle name. So basically I have plenty of middle names, but not enough first names.
11) FINISH THIS STATEMENT—’IF I HAD A LOT OF MONEY I’d…
Travel more with my husband. And maybe buy more books. And some cool fabric from stores like superbuzzy.com or reprodepot.com. And then are are lots of ministries I'd love to support more - especially Scripture Union, the ministry in Peru where I spent 3 summers.
12) DO YOU DRIVE FAST?
Umm. Yes. Not too fast. But I'd say I consistently speed about 8-10miles over the speed limit.
13) DO YOU SLEEP WITH A STUFFED ANIMAL?
No. Just two comfy pillows.
14) STORMS–COOL OR SCARY?
Cool. If I were Melanie, living in Tornado country, I'd probably say scary. And in the past when I'd see a huge hurricane looking like it might hit Charleston, also scary. But here in Greenwood, they don't ever get that bad.
15) WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST CAR?
The first car I drove was a small, purple Ford ranger with no frills - no power steering, no ac, stick shift. It was fun.
16) FAVORITE DRINK?
I mostly drink water. I do love Vanilla Coke Zero, though. And the occasional Woodchuck.
17) FINISH THIS STATEMENT-IF I HAD THE TIME I WOULD…
Read, sew, or sleep more. And do more traveling with Jeff.
18) DO YOU EAT THE STEMS ON BROCCOLI?
19) IF YOU COULD DYE YOUR HAIR ANY OTHER COLOUR, WHAT WOULD BE YOUR CHOICE?
I like my hair, even though I do have an increasingly alarming number of grays. But maybe more reddish?
20) NAME ALL THE DIFFERENT CITIES/TOWNS YOU HAVE LIVED IN.
Oberweiss, Germany. Piedmont, SC. Seneca, SC. Columbia, SC. Charleston, SC. St. Louis, MO.
Jeff has lived in numerous other cities including: San Diego, CA, Peoria, IL, Colorado Springs, CO, Champaigne/Urbana, IL. And a city whose name I cannot remember near Sacramento, CA.
21) FAVORITE SPORTS TO WATCH?
Anything on the Olympics. College (especially SEC) Football. And Cubs Baseball with Jeff. And even, occasionally, a good golf tournament with Jeff, if Tiger is winning.
22) ONE NICE THING ABOUT THE PERSON WHO SENT THIS TO YOU?
I haven't even met Totally Scrappy, but she has been faithfully commenting on my blog for a while. And getting comments on the blog is always a nice feeling. So Thanks! And she's a pastor's wife, so I feel we're kindred spirits now that I am, too.
23) WHATS UNDER YOUR BED?
An overdue library book. (I'm guessing) And dust. And probably something else I've been missing, like a lone sock.
24) WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE BORN AS YOURSELF AGAIN??
Yep. I've got a great family, an awesome husband, and a job I love.
25) MORNING PERSON OR NIGHT OWL?
Night owl. Helpful on call, but not as helpful when you need to be up, out of bed, and thinking well as a physician early in the morning.
26) OVER EASY OR SUNNY SIDE UP?
What's the difference? Just give me a little runny yolk.
27) FAVORITE PLACE TO RELAX?
Somewhere far, far away from the hospital. Like the Lake. Or the beach.
29) FAVORITE ICE CREAM FLAVOR?
My mom's homemade peach ice cream or the chocolate irish cream flavor I occasionally make.
30) OF ALL THE PEOPLE YOU HAVE TAGGED, WHO IS THE MOST LIKELY TO RESPOND FIRST?

Austin (so he'll post again)
Lindsay @ Somewhere over the Rainbow
Katie @ House of Payne
