All about moi!
To change things up a bit and to let you know more about me, I am going to get a little personal. (In my head, I sang that as "Get a little Personal, Personal” to the tune of “Physical” by the lovely Olivia Newton John—are you sure you want to get personal?!) What is a better way to get more personal than to throw it back to my Xanga/Myspace days with a “Get to Know Me” questionnaire! I have no shame admitting I used to love doing these!
1: Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed?
Closed. There might be a monster in the closet.
2:Do you take the shampoos and conditioner bottles from hotel?
No! 5 years in the Hospitality Industry, it was pounded into my head how much those little babies cost - Not individually, but when you have to order a month’s supply…it’s a bit ridiculous.
3:Do you sleep with your sheets tucked in or out?
I hate the feeling of sheets, so I don’t sleep with the top sheet at all. Just the fitted one. I was always told I was like the Princess and the Pea…and it’s basically true.
4:Have you ever stolen a street sign before?
Yes. I had a rebellious streak when I was 17. It was short lived. I was so worried we were going to get arrested just for having it hang in a friend’s garage. I sucked at rebellion.
5:Do you like to use post-it notes?
Love them. I especially love pretty ones. I have been banned from Targets Dollar Spot because I hoard all the cute sticky notes they have. I can buy 10 at a time if they are only $1, right?!
6:Do you cut out coupons but then never use them?
I forget about them. I have a 5 year old boy. By the time I get to the checkout, I am lucky to have my
sanity…let alone coupons. Saving the $0.05 isn’t worth one more “Mom can I have….”
7:Would you rather be attacked by a big bear or a swarm of a bees?
Bear. Then I can play dead! I read that works somewhere. I suck at outside…so I wouldn’t know the
“Campers Guide to Surviving a Bear Attack” rules.
8:Do you have freckles?
A few. My favorite is on my upper lip! That’s my husband’s favorite too!
9:Do you always smile for pictures?
No! I tend to make silly faces. I think I have more pictures with crazy faces than ones with smiles, this dating back to my toddler years.
10:What is your biggest pet peeve?
People who don’t understand personal space.
11:Do you ever count your steps when you walk?
I have a watch to do that for me! I just realized how incredibly lazy that sounds...
12:Have you ever peed in the woods?
No, since “I suck at outside” the woods are not a place for me. Plus, unless there is a real toilet
somewhere, that’s not happening.
13:What about pooped in the woods?
14:Do you ever dance even if there’s no music playing?
I do! There is music playing in my head when I do! Or it’s my “happy dance.
15:Do you chew your pens and pencils?
Yes. It’s a habit. Better the pens than my nails! Side note: Why would you chew a pencil, you would be eating the eraser, no?
16. How many people have you slept with this week?
Oh la la la. Wouldn’t you like to know?!
17:What size is your bed?
18:What is your Song of the week?
Anything from Wicked the Musical. I think I have listened to the CD on repeat this week. I can’t pick just one.
19:Is it okay for guys to wear pink?
More power to you! I think some guys look adorable in pink!
20:Do you still watch cartoons?
I have a 5 year old. We watch cartoons on the regular.
21:Whats your least favorite movie?
This is actually a tough one. I am going to be very general here. After doing 7 years of theatre in Middle School and High School, anything with horrid acting is on my “Nope” list.
22:Where would you bury hidden treasure if you had some?
I wouldn’t bury it, I would spend it...
23:What do you drink with dinner?
Water. I will only drink soda if alcohol is invited to the party. Otherwise, it’s not worth it.
24:What do you dip a chicken nugget in?
Chick-fil-a Sauce or White Gravy. End of story.
25:What is your favorite food?
Caramel. I get that it’s a sweet, but it’s the fastest way to my heart.
26:What movies could you watch over and over and still love?
No judgment…Veronica Mars. The entire series. Kristen Bell is my spirit animal.
27:Last person you kissed/kissed you?
My half-pint. I know…so exciting…right?
28:Were you ever a boy/girl scout?
I was, until we had to go camping, then I was done. Buh-bye.
29:Would you ever strip or pose nude in a magazine?
No. Keep it classy ladies!
30:When was the last time you wrote a letter to someone on paper?
Oh, damn. To my child. As the tooth-fairy. Does that count?
31:Can you change the oil on a car?
Ahahaha. Noooo. I killed the engine in my first car since I had NO IDEA I had to do that. I always had my dad or boyfriend (now husband) do that! I know, I know, its pitiful. Don’t worry. I know it HAS to be done now, just not HOW to do it.
32:Ever gotten a speeding ticket?
Oh, good grief, yes. I actually got one last week. Oops! My dad taught me to drive, say enough?
33:Ever ran out of gas?
I have sputtered my way into the gas station, VERY close to running out.
34:Favorite kind of sandwich?
Turkey, Chipotle Gouda, spinach, avocado on sourdough bread. Toasted Panini style.
35:Best thing to eat for breakfast?
Waffles are one of my faves.
36:What is your usual bedtime?
I like to be in bed by 10:00pm most nights, but the reality of that happening with a very busy little boy are slim.
37:Are you lazy?
I wish I could be lazy every now and again. Life with a 5 year old boy in a sport like Hockey makes that nearly impossible.
38:When you were a kid, what did you dress up as for Halloween?
All kinds of stuff. My mom is very skilled at sewing. She made all kinds of elaborate costumes. One year I was a mermaid with a tail. Like straight up tail. It was awesome. One day I will share some pictures.
39:What is your Chinese astrological sign?
Snake. I definitely had to Google that, too.
40:How many languages can you speak?
English, a little bit of Spanish and a very small amount of French. So collectively, 2-ish.
41:Do you have any magazine subscriptions?
I do! Food Network, Recipes.com, Redbook, Parenting, and Fitness Magazine.
42:Which are better legos or lincoln logs?
Legos! Until I step on them. Then they seriously suck.
43:Are you stubborn?
Very much. Just ask my main-squeeze.
44:Who is better…Leno or Letterman?
No contest, Leno!
45:Ever watch soap operas?
No, they are too dramatic.
46:Are you afraid of heights?
47:Do you sing in the car?
48:Do you sing in the shower?

I have serious jam outs in the car.

I have. My husband is from the country...Enough said.
51:Last time you got a portrait taken by a photographer?
A few weeks ago at a friends wedding.

A tank top and shorts.
64:Wal-Mart, Target or Kmart?

66:Cheetos Or Fritos?
Cheetos, of the Flaming Hot variety.
67:Peanuts or Sunflower seeds?
How about pistachios? I like those.
68:Ever hear of the group Tres Bien?
Does Googling them just now count?
69:Ever take dance lessons?
Oh yes. As a child I did ballet. And figure skating, dance was required for that too. And most recently when I got married, we did 6 months of ballroom style dance.
70:Is there a profession you picture your future spouse doing?
Future spouse? Hmmm. I see my current spouse being a fireman like he always dreamed of being.
71:Can you curl your tongue?
72:Ever won a spelling bee?
Nope. I was in one in the 1st grade, but didn't get any further than my grade level.
73:Have you ever cried because you were so happy?
I have. Pregnancy hormones do crazy things to you. I cried to cry at that time.
74:Own any record albums?
75:Own a record player?
76:Regularly burn incense?
Ew. No. It stinks.

84:Can you hold your breath without holding your nose?
Uhhhh. Yeah? I didn't know it was possible to NOT be able to do that.

Nope. Not at all. That's not one of strong points.

DJ! They are more fun!

89:Which are better black or green olives?
90:Can you knit or crochet?
I used to knit. I think I forgot how.
91:Best room for a fireplace?
Why? That is what I am asking myself right now...why am I still doing this? Living room, I guess.
92:Do you want to get married?
Nope, not at all. Why would I want to get married to my HUSBAND--that's why he's my husband and all...
93:If married, how long have you been married?
Shouldn't this have been a question from the start? Since they talked about "future spouses" earlier on? But, nearly 4 years.
94:Who was your HS crush?
Oh man, there might be too many to name. I was a bit boy crazy.
95:Do you cry and throw a fit until you get your own way?
Cry or throw a fit? No. But I do know how to get my way.
