Ganked this from Crate:

Any teenager can write a survey about their favorite class or their secret crush or how nice their car is that their parents paid for. This is the survey for the older crowd.

1. Do you have a college degree?
Yep. Got it finally at the age of 34. B.S. In Biology. I have lesser stuff, but that's the one I'm proud of.

2. What was the amount of your last electric bill?
I don't actually pay them so I'm not totally sure but if I had to guess I'd say it was in the $15-20.00 range.

3. Do you have life insurance?
Of course. I'm worth more dead. My parents took it out on me when I was a little kid so that they wouldn't have to worry about burial expenses since I was always flinging myself off the side of something. I also now have more through my work, some through my bank and maybe even a little through my credit card.

4. How many hours per week do you work?
This is tricky. How many hours a week am I scheduled for? 37.5 How many hours a week am I in the building? Proably 35. Working? I'm not even gonna say it.

5. Have you ever attended a Toastmasters event?'
I don't even know what that is. I mean, I can make an educated guess, but clearly, no, I haven't attended.

6. Favorite place to attend Happy Hour?
Happy Hour is non-existant in my life in the way in which it is meant in this question. Back in the day when I used to have the time for Happy Hour's my favorite place was probably the roof of Quest, but that was really more of a sunday early evening thing.

7. How many miles is your commute to work each day (one way)?
33.65 miles, and that's if I take the short way which is a pain in the ass traffic wise.

8. What time do you get up every morning for work?
Well, the alarm goes off at 8:34. I hit the snooze which brings us to 8:43, when I hit the snooze again but start to tell myself I have to wake up. At 8:52 I might actually get up if I have to pee really badly or if the cat is jumping around but usually the last alarm is at 9:01 at which point I freak out and tear out of bed because I'm supposed to be at work at 9:30, not that I ever have been. It takes a half hour to get the dog up, fed, give him is shot and then like 15 minutes to get myself ready so I leave the house at probably 9:45-9:50 and then drive an hour and a half to work. Thank God I have this job.

9. What is your definition of sleeping in late?
Let's put it this way. On Saturday I get a wake up call at 1:30pm and I consider that getting up EARLY on my day off. What you have to realize is that I don't go to bed before 4:30AM and even then I probably watched 2 episodes of NCIS before drifting off to sleep.

10. Do you check your cholesterol on a yearly basis?

My what now? I have no idea when I saw a doctor last if it wasn't for my foot.

11. How large was your first cellular phone?

Not very, probably about 4 inches long. It didn't snap shut though which made me feel very behind the times.

12. Does your employer provide good health insurance?

Yeah, well, like I said, I don't actually go to the doctor, but the insurance is good because I can see my specialists without needing a referal and junk.

13. Did you use the internet to write a research paper back in college?

Sure, but then, back in college was only 6 years ago because I was one of those "Campus Ladies".

14. Have you attended a HS reunion?

There is no thing in the world that would ever make me go to my high school reunion. Wait...no, if you told me I could go with Gibbs as my date and we could ride there on an elephant and you'd give me a million dollars for showing up, MAYBE I'd go.

15. How many jobs have you held in your professional career?

My current professional career? Just this one.

16. Have you ever been fired or laid off from a job?

Let me count the ways...
From a radio station for not showing up for a shift. The beauty was it was a huge snow storm and I was driving to work and my car slid under an 18 wheeler. They had to get special trucks to separate us and the COPS called my boss to tell him I wouldn't make it in but I got fired for not "Being dedicated enough to show up".

Two weeks later they fired the rest of the staff and went to all taped crap.

I got fired by one of my best friends because she wanted to hire her brother.

Oh, and I got this bizarre lay off speech from a petstore I worked at when I started to make noise about where the puppies came from and how poorly they were being taken care of by our staff.

I think that might be it, it's all I can remember.

17. What is your favorite drink?

Probably a magarita because I drink those the most. I also really love Thai beer and though I haven't had one in awhile I love sloe gin fizz's.

18. What is the most expensive bottle of wine that you have in your residence?

$3.49 I don't buy expensive wine because I'm not a big wine drinker. I have a couple of small bottles of merlot in case I feel the need but that's about it.

19. Have you been divorced?
No. They just all die on me (watch your back Brock)

20. How old were you when you stopped getting IDed for Alcohol/tobacco etc...?

What makes you think I've stopped? I'm 40 now, I got ID'd last year twice, I sort of got ID'd a few months ago but that one doesn't count because I was with a barely 21 year old and the waiter did it to be kind. I told him thanks but I'm not dragging out my licence for you.

21. Favorite casino?

I'll never know. Every time I make plans for VEgas they get f'd up.

22. Are you happier now than you were in high school?

By which you mean, at all? Because High School? was not good times. Yeah, I'm happier now, by far.

23 Did you ever have Hypercolor shirts?

Yes, yes I did, and I'll tell you something else, I'd buy another one dammit.

24. Do you remember when Michael Jackson was black and attracted to older people?

Of course, I was in love with him back when he was a straight black guy.

25. Did you have an Atari 2600 that wasn't only a joystick?

I had an early atari, I don't remember if there was a number attached. I keep threatening to bust it out because I miss playing Pitfall.

26. What was the price of gas when you got your license?

I don't remember at all.

27. What music was in your cd / cassette player when you were 16?

CD? There were no cd's if there were cd's when you were 16 you have no business calling yourself an adult yet. When I was 16 I had one cassette I listened to over and over. It was a homemade cassette with most of Journey's Escape album plus Jack and Diane by John Cougar (no Mellancamp) and a song by Michael Damien who was on some soap.

28. Favorite fancy / upscale restaurant?

Cliche but true, Top of the Hub. because of the memories.

29. How long has it been since you attended a kegger?

I have NEVER attended a kegger.

30. How many major wars have you lived through?

They all just seem like one big one. I don't keep count.

31. When's the last time you were at a 7-11?

I dunno, not long, maybe a month. I hit the Cumby's more than the 7-11

32. Where were you when you found out about 9-11?

Driving to work, alone in my car. I was listening to the radio and no one could figure quite what was going on. When the first plane hit the radio guys kept saying there was some kind of accident. I called my mom at home and told her to turn on the tv, "something's happening" I remeber those being my exact words. She gave me the play by play from the tv. Everything seemed very strange that day. Even traffic seemed like a movie scene.
