STING meme!

1. DESERT ROSE: This desert flower, no sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this…What is your favorite scent?
I have at least 4 favs. Shalimar, warm chocolate cooking, fresh warm crusty bread and newly cut grass lawns.

2. EVERY BREATH YOU TAKE: Every move you make, every vow you break, every smile you fake, every claim you stake, I'll be watching you.
Ever stalked or researched an old flame?
Yes, years ago, when I suspected cheating, I drove by a boyfriend's house (while we were still dating) over and over around his block for about a half hour just to see if a strange car would pull into his drive. I got my answer within 15 minutes, and I was devastated.

3. IF I EVER LOSE MY FAITH IN YOU: I never saw no miracle of science that didn't go from a blessing to a curse
What product did you buy that didn’t do what it claimed?
Spray on makeup for legs to look like a natural tan... The shower curtain and walls sported the tan. I was a streaky mess.

4. IF YOU NEED SOMEBODY SET THEM FREE: If you need somebody, call my name.If you want someone, you can do the same
Do you have a nickname or have you been called something other than your given name?
I decided after my divorce to create my own name rather than keeping my husband's name or go back to being my father's property. I became Kathryn Alexander Collins. Kathryn for Star Trek's Kathryn Janeway, and Collins after the family that was the focus of the 1960's daytime soap opera Dark Shadows. I had always wanted to name a boy child Colin Alexander but never got the chance, so I took Alexander and Collins and switched them for my own name instead.

5. WE WORK THE BLACK SEAM: One day in a nuclear age they may understand our rage. They build machines that they can't control and bury the waste in a great big hole
What do you do that is considered “Green”?
I'm good at the office separating paper trash and bottles and cans. At home, I slip up a little, but I do break down my cardboard and Bud burns all the papers with the charcoal in the grill.

6. MOON OVER BOURBON STREET: It was many years ago that I became what I am, I was trapped in this life like an innocent lamb
What was the worst job you ever had?
There were many... tie between being in the ARMY (PFC stationed at Fort Jackson, SC) and my 3 months as the salad bar girl at Bonanza Steak House in the 1970s...I came home with my hair, skin and clothes reeking of grease every night.

7. I BURN FOR YOUIn peace we sleep entwined and your love flows through me. Though an ocean soothes my head, I burn for you
What is the worst thing about sleeping with someone else in a bed?
Some people snore LOUDLY...

8. FORTRESS AROUND YOUR HEART: And if I built this fortress around your heart,Encircled you in trenches and barbed wire, then let me build a bridge, for I cannot fill the chasm
What object or piece of furniture have you built?
I used to build my own waterbed frames in the 1980's. I also like to make that kit furniture, like bookcases and side tables from a box. I'm pretty handy around the house. : )

9. ENGLISHMAN IN NEW YORK: I don't drink coffee I take tea my dear, I like my toast done on one side, and you can hear it in my accent when I talk, I'm an Englishman in New York…
Do you require special preparation for a food or drink in a restaurant?
I consider coffee to be the "Nectar of the Gods"...but my blend is important. Public drinking is Dunkin Donuts medium hot with cream and 4 Splenda. Privately, I have a Keurig machine that brews Kona coffee or strong colombian, but NEVER flavors!

10. FIELDS OF GOLD: I never made promises lightly, and there have been some that I've broken. But I swear in the days still left we'll walk in the fields of gold
What was the last promise you made?
To tell the truth and not hold back.

11. CONSIDER ME GONE: To search for perfection is all very well, but to look for Heaven is to live here in Hell. After today, consider me gone
What was the worst way you ever broke up in a relationship?
All those Match.Com e-mail break ups...I'm not proud of those. I consider breaking up with someone in any way but in person to be wimpy and cowardly. Hopefully I won;t have to ever do that again...

12. THE RUSSIANS: How can I save my little boy from Oppenheimer's deadly toy, there is no monopoly in common sense on either side of the political fence
What is your biggest fear of danger?
Ignorance is the root of all evil and issues in this world.

13. BRAND NEW DAY: How many lonely, sleepless nights, how many lies, how many fights, and why would you want to put yourself through all that again?
Do you prefer being married or single?
I've tried both and I can say with confidence that I have been happiest single.
