A Look into My Life

My friend Amy



was tagged with these questions.
I'm going to take her up on this and answer them myself.




1. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE?
I do believe I was named after my Great Grandma on my mom's side.


2. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED?
Last Sunday over the finale of Lost. As a side note, I'm still a little ticked off at how it ended.


3. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING?
Most days I do. Sometimes when my writing isn't very neat, I switch pens. For whatever reason it really does make a difference. I've also noticed that I rarely sign my name the same twice!


4. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH MEAT?
Turkey. Chipped.



5. DO YOU HAVE KIDS?

Do I really need to answer this one? It's not like I never talk about them or anything. But in case you're new to this place, I have 2 - GG (8) and Little Dude (4).


6. IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU?

I would. With the exception of a few days a month where I can be a complete bitch. Any woman out there knows exactly what I'm talking about!!


7. DO YOU USE SARCASM A LOT?
Who me? No, never!

True story ~ this is how my side of the family copes with tough things. I've learned there are a lot of people out there who seem to find sarcasm offensive, but it works for me.


8. DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS?
Yes


9. WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP?
Absolutely not!!! I will go on the biggest and faster roller coaster with tons of loops, but bungee jumping, sky diving.... HECK NO!!!!


10. DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF?
If I'm wearing boots, then yes, I have to if I want them off my feet. My tennis shoes I do not untie. And in the summer if I'm not barefoot, I'm wearing flip flops. Obviously you can't untie those!


11. DO YOU THINK YOU ARE STRONG?
Physically, no. Mentally, when I have to be. I don't like to cry in front of other people so I usually put on my big girl pants and suck it up. Once I'm alone I'm a blubbering mess.


12.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ICE CREAM?
Chocolate peanut butter


13.
WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE?
How they are dressed and mannerisms. Typically the way someone is dressed will not determine if I like them or not. But if someone comes across as cocky and arrogant, I have my reservations. But I have learned to give people like that a chance. After all, that was my first impression of the husband!


14. RED OR PINK?
Pink. If my mom is reading this, I hope she's sitting because this is coming from a girl who used to wear nothing but dark colors. Pink was like the plague to me back in the day!


15. WHAT IS THE WEATHER LIKE OUTSIDE?
The 3 H's ~ hazy, hot, humid. But after the craptastic winter we endured, this weather is much appreciated!


16. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE DRINK?
Coffee. Life would be grand if I could stick a caffeine IV in me every morning!

I also like tea (hot and sweet in the winter, cold and straight in the summer). Oh, an Pepsi. I might need an IV for that, too!


17. WHAT COLOR SHOES ARE YOU WEARING?
Black flip flops


18. WHAT WAS THE LAST THING YOU ATE?
Buffalo chicken penne (thanks again, Shell!). That reminds me, I guess I should go get my Special K Red berries for breakfast!


19.
WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW?
The hum of the fish tank filter and Little Dude building a train track around his castle.


20.
IF YOU WERE A CRAYON, WHAT COLOR WOULD YOU BE?
Purple Mountain Majesty. The color is pretty, but I really like the name!


21. FAVORITE SMELLS?
Rain, All laundry detergent, and fresh baked chocolate chip cookies


22.
WHO WAS THE LAST PERSON YOU TALKED TO ON THE PHONE?
My mom. She just called to tell me her friend is coming over to get the paperwork for our truck squared away. I'll be sad to see the truck go, but at the same time I can't wait to get it out of here!!!


23. FAVORITE SPORTS TO WATCH?
Just like the question about kids, if you've been here for a bit, you should already know the answer. I bleed black and gold!!! I love, love, love my Pens and Steelers. I cold maybe get back into baseball if the Pirates could figure out how to win. After 17 straight losing seasons, I don't think they know how to anymore.


24.
HAIR COLOR?
Reddish. I need to dye my hair again, but I learned last year that chlorine makes it look really bad. Maybe I'll find out what my natural color this year. I honestly have no idea what it is!!


25.
EYE COLOR?
Green with flecks of gold and brown. And a brown spot in my left eye.


26.
DO YOU WEAR CONTACTS?
No. I used to but contacts for me aren't cheap. Although glasses aren't either since I seem to keep breaking them. Hopefully my new pairs will hold up for a while.


27. FAVORITE FOOD?
Crab legs. I once ate 16 pounds in 10 days while on vacation. I think I was around 13 at the time. I also love pasta and salads.


28. SCARY MOVIES OR HAPPY ENDINGS?
Either one. It depends on what I'm in the mood for, but I do love me some good scary movies!


29. LAST MOVIE YOU WATCHED?
Transformers. It was the only decent thing on tv last night. I tried to watch American Idol but I just couldn't do it.


30.
WHAT COLOR SHIRT ARE YOU WEARING?
My yellow All you need is love Beatles shirt. Hmm... I wonder what the inspiration for my blog title was?m LOL!!


31. SUMMER OR WINTER?
Summer. Up until this past February I didn't mind winter all that much, even though I complained about it constantly. All I said last Fall was that I wanted 1 good snowfall and I'd be happy. The 3 foot Snowmageddon that came in February is NOT what I had in mind!!!


32. HUGS OR KISSES?
Both


33. CAR OR TRUCK?
As much as I love our little red truck and wish we could afford to fix it up, I'll take the car any day.


34. WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING NOW?
I'm not currently reading anything. Unless you want to count the many childrens books we go through every day.


35.
WHAT IS ON YOUR MOUSE PAD?
Maxine pointing her finger at me and saying "Don't mouse with me!"


36. WHAT DID YOU WATCH ON TV LAST NIGHT?
Again, Transformers.


37. FAVORITE SOUND?
Babies laughing. Not a giggle, but the deep down belly laugh. I also love the sound of a good thunderstorm, especially at night when I'm in bed.


38.
ROLLING STONES OR BEATLES?
I can not stand the Stones! Having them play over and over and over while waiting for a concert to start really turned me away from them. I would pick the Beatles over just about any other band anyway.


39. WHERE DO YOU WANT TO GO TO NEXT?
I would love to take the kids the Disney World, but we want to wait until Little Dude is a bit older. Until then, I really want to go to the beach, sit in the sand and have the waves splash on my feet while I watch the kids build a sandcastle.


40. DO YOU HAVE A SPECIAL TALENT?
Amy asked if being a mom counts and I definitely think it does, so I'm using her answer. I also used to be able to tie a cherry stem with my tongue.


41.
WHERE WERE YOU BORN?
In a hospital



I'm not sure if I'm supposed to tag anyone with these questions, but I'm not big on that anyway. If you want to answer these go right ahead. Let me know so I can pop over and check out your answers.



Until next time....

" used to be able to tie a cherry stem with my tongue" if you practiced could you still do it???

Lisa said...

I don't know my real hair color any more either. I've been dying it since I was 17.

I wouldn't even do the roller coaster! I don't do heights.

Babies laughing is my favorite sound too. If you can hear one laugh and not laugh too or smile...something is wrong with ya!
