Answer Some Questions

Recently I got a lovely email from Marissa about being nominated for a web award.  I’m not good with this stuff.  I’m just not.  I feel funny about it and then I never follow the rules.  But…

I miss the days of meme’s.  I loved learning more from my favorite bloggers.  I’m nosy and I happily took the info.  So I’ll play along without really following the rules.

When was the last time someone made you laugh really hard?

We’ve been very fortunate to have family members around or over this past month.  And we’ve also been really lucky to be able to have the kids occupied.  This means we can finally play “Cards Against Humanity”.  You want to laugh so hard you nearly piss yourself?  Play this game.
When you woke up this morning, what was the first thought that ran through your head? (Skip to the second thing if the first isn’t clean!)

“Is it Monday?  Fuck, no.  It’s Sunday!”
Look behind you, what do you see?

A blank wall.  It needs artwork. 
What is the most important thing about you and why? 

If you’re loyal and honest with me there isn’t anything I won’t do for you.   You can forget my birthday, call me a bitch, tell me my pants are funny, even question my parenting and I won’t care too much if I love you.  I may set you straight, but I’ll still love you.
What country (that you haven’t been to) would you love to visit and why? 

England.  I’m lazy and don’t want to work a lot for a vacation.  I figure that I’ll be able to understand what’s going on.
Think of the stupidest thing you have ever done and share it with us.  Okay, maybe the second stupidest thing. 

The only time I went to camp (maybe early middle school) it was with kids I didn’t know.  They dared someone to pee in the cabin.  Why not?  Done.
Dog, cat or fish and why?

Mark’s allergic to cats.  And I hate how fish die.  So dogs.
Do you speak another language, what is it, and if you don’t, what language would you like to learn and why? 

My second, sometimes first, is Bullshit.
One word to describe yourself. 

What was the best present you ever received and why? 

Mark gave me a wad of saved cash for my first camera upgrade.  It was weird and wonderful in a spilt second.
What is the first word that comes to mind when you see fireworks?

A friend just gave me his theory the other night.  I hope to do it justice…  He said fireworks were like boobs.  You’ve seen them 1000 times and they don’t really change.  But you have to look at them with a little bit of wonder each time.  Now every time I see fireworks I’ll think of boobs.  Now go shop to support this brillant thinking.


I’m not really a rule follower.  Or I’m too lazy.  Or I’m too slammed with work.  But I do love answering questions.  I love when other people answer questions.  It opens this world up just a little bit more…  So I’m tagging a few people that I simply love and want a little more info on.

  • Molly is coming to town soon.  I need more before she gets here.
  • Tiffani is one of my favorite women ever.  Plus she’s one of the most badass bitches I know.  I just wanna know her answers.
  • I owe Jess a phone call, so this will do.
  • Rachel and I are Skyping soon.  I should know more info about her before an actual conversation.  Won’t feel so dirty…
  • Suzanne needs a reason to blog more.  It’s true.  And I want to be the person to push her.
