50 Things About Me and Lots of Chester Pics

On days, like today, that I have to work late, I like to look at pictures of Chester.  I forgot I had this one.  He’s so precious:

It’s of him doing this thing where he scratches at the glass, not just like once or twice, but literally for minutes at a time.  He usually does this in my bedroom window when I’m trying to sleep.  It’s super annoying, but it looks hilarious from the other side.  Here’s a better view:

Also, here’s one of Chester from the other night.  He LOVES our new heated blanket.  Here’s him inside:

A couple of posts ago, I wrote a list of 25 things that you probably didn’t know about me.  I got the idea from another blog.  Well, I really thought that was fun, sharing that side of myself, so I wanted to do another list.  I got the list from this site.  The questions are just random and probably not that insightful, but it will be fun to do at least.  Enjoy 🙂

1. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE?
Yes actually.  I was named after Meggie, who is the main character is the Thorn Birds.  My mom loved the mini-series.

2. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED?
Probably sometime last week when I was feeling terrible.

Corned beef or roast beef.

5. DO YOU HAVE KIDS?
No, but I have a cat.  Same thing 😉

6. IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU?
Probably not.  I’m not that easy to get along with and I’m pretty sarcastic.  I have very narrow interests as well and I’m kind of a nerd.  This is probably why I don’t have many friends in my “real” life.

    1. Thank you for asking 🙂 I’m thinking of getting it of my cat, Chester, sniffing a hibiscus, which is the national flower of Korea, where my boyfriend is from. The artist is incredible, so I have no doubt she’ll do an awesome job.

      1. Yeah, it’s a bit weird… CA is having one of the warmest winters on record (if not *the* warmest) – it was in the high 70’s today and it’s been regularly hitting 80 since I arrived 6 weeks ago.

        It feels like another country altogether… (and that’s just the culture shock LOL)

      2. That’s funny because we’re having one of the coldest winters on record 😉 I bet it’s quite the culture shock. There aren’t many places like the Midwest 🙂

  1. On #6 Wow your written words seem to be more profound (socially) than your spoken! As per your claim not popular socially in real life but 10K connections on social media! 🙂

  2. That was fun to read Super Megan yeah that has become my nickname for you
    for you are super and doing great.
    Keep smiling and thank you for sharing a little about you.. what would chester eb chasing against that window

    1. I like that nickname 🙂 I think Chester is trying to get birds, clean off the window, or sometimes talk to his friend Simon. Simon will come by and do the same thing on the other side of the window. It’s hilarious 🙂

  3. The title sounded like a long post, and I feel so rushed lately that I almost skipped, but then you tempted me in with pictures of Chester and I ended up also liking the list after all. 🙂

  5. I have to say, I can’t imagine not listening to music. Although how do you watch TV but can’t listen to music?

    I do like the smell of coffee, but I can’t drink it. Yuck!

    1. I know, it’s a bit strange, but it’s something that’s always been a part of me. I’ve had mp3 players that have gone unused for this reason. It’s just not interesting to me. Strangely enough, I love to sing, but I don’t like listening to any particular music. I love hearing people talk on tv, so that I don’t feel quite so alone 🙂

      1. Well, I know there’s so many different types of phobias, and most times you wouldn’t really know it. Does/would talk radio work for you?

  6. Cool list, in fact it’s an excellent way for readers to get to know you. I may not steal, uh um, I meant borrow your questions but I might definitely purloin the idea, if that’s okay?
    Thanks for dropping by my page, I know you’ve had a bad winter but could you send me a bit of snow please…..very warm here in Perth, West Australia, and I’m tired off it.

    1. I do love posting lists like that because people like to read lists for some reason and they get me thinking about things I normally don’t even think about. No way! You don’t want any of this snow, trust me. It’s been subzero more days than not this winter. Quite depressing really 🙂
