My friend, Coralie, did one of those survey things and then tapped me at the end to do it too. I fell for it. This sucker was long. I'm not tagging anyone at the end. Sheesh.
1. What is your name?
Rebecca Elizabeth Cheely Kicklighter (can you beee-lieve how long that is? It is NOT going on stationary!)
2. Are you named after anyone? Whom? No and Yes. There is that Rebekah in the Bible, but I don't think I was named after her. The Elizabeth is a family name on my mom's side.
3. Were you a planned pregnancy? I don't know that. I have never thought to ask that. What kind of question is this??
4. Did you have a good childhood? Yep
5. What is your fondest childhood memory? Laughing at the dinner table. My brother and I would laugh so hard we would get sent to our rooms to calm down. As soon as we saw each other we would start laughing again and turn right back around.
6. Have you ever ridden on an airplane? Yes. Quite a bit.
7. Do you have any special talents? I can curl my tongue. I know all the words to the Dora theme song.
8. What is your favorite holiday? Christmas. Love it.
9. If you found out you had 24 hours to live, what would you do? Call my extended family and then just sit and hug my husband and kids. (seriously, Coralie, good call!) I might spend one hour making one of those video messages to my kids telling them a couple of the things I hope for them.
10. Are you in love? Yep. (Just for the record, I HATE the term "in love". It connotates euphoric, dizzy headed, never argue, gaze into his eyes, "I can't eat" type feelings. Obviously I can eat, so folks would think I'm not in love. But, I love the man, I tell you. Jeez - semantics.
11. Are they in love with you? Yep. He has stopped eating.
12. What kind of car would you get if you could have it totally free of charge? Oh man. Honey would want me to say a Mustang but I just can't - on principle. A Toyota Prius or a Ford Fusion. . .'cause I am practical like that and the Fusion has all that voice sync stuff and Honey really digs that. (Honey needs a car, can you tell?)
13. Who is your favorite singer/band? I would have to admit that I am still a big Steven Curtis Chapman fan. I know, how 1990's of me. I like music too much to narrow this down to one.

19. What brand of shampoo do you use? What I got free.
20. What kind of perfume/cologne do you wear? I have a bottle of Happy that has been in my drawer since. . .I can't even remember it's been so long. I should probably throw that out. Does perfume have a shelf life?
21. Do you have names picked out for your future children (if you are having any(more))? There is no plan for this question to apply to me.
22. Who is your hero? I don't know that I have a hero. That's probably a problem.
23. What is your biggest regret in life? I don't know that I can answer this one at this stage of my life. Next!
24. What is the longest amount of time you have been at the same job? I worked in the Briarwood Bookstore for four years.

26. Do you use a desktop or laptop computer? desktop

39. If you could only watch one TV channel for the rest of your life, what channel would you choose? HGTV

54. You find a wallet on the ground at the grocery store – there is no ID of any kind – it contains $500 in cash – what do you do with it? I’d go into the store and have them page to see if anyone lost a wallet. But seriously, why would a wallet have cash and no ID?
