Wanna hear me talk about myself?? Well too bad, you’re gonna have to because my friend Melissa over at ADVENTURES OF NINJAMAMA (http://adventuresofninjamama.wordpress.com/) tagged me in a little blogger game about who I am. So here’s some stuff. You can read it. Or don’t, I don’t really care. I’m off to watch my DVR’d episodes of this weeks’ Days of our Lives episodes anyways…..
1. Where were you born?
Grand Rapids, MICHIGAN. I have never lived anywhere else.
2. Were you named after someone?
No. But my parents did work VERY hard at making sure I was called by my given name “Elizabeth” by everyone that met me…that all went to shit in high school when people started calling me “Liz” and I just wanted to let them call me whatever they wanted so I didn’t get my butt whooped! 😉
3. How many children do you have?
One. And done. My tubes are tied and the baby-makin’ factory is closed for business. My family is the right size for ME. My daughter is not bratty or a loner or shy or weird just because she doesn’t have any siblings. If people feel the need to lecture me on my choice, I usually just put a really sad face on and tell them that I only have HALF of a uterus, so I am unable to carry a whole baby…this shuts people up and gets me a sympathetic pat on the hand about 99% of the time.
4. How many pets do you have?
Two puppies, both rescue pets. And by puppies, I mean they are 4. But they will ALWAYS be puppies to me. Chase is a Boston Terrier/Boxer/Idiot whose given name is Starchaser Red Rose (hey, my daughter was only 5, what do you expect?!) and Nolley is a chihuahua that wears pink hooded parkas and rides everywhere with us.
5. Your worst injury?
Okay…prepare to be disgusted. My worst injury HANDS DOWN is the thrombosed hemorrhoid I had for 8 days. I thought I was going to die. My broken finger, broken foot, popped kneecap, wisdom teeth removal and c-section COMBINED did not hurt worse than that damn butt bubble!!!!!
6. Do you have a special talent?
Not unless you count being able to recite movie lines word for word after just two viewings…
7. Favorite thing you can bake?
That question should say “ONLY thing you can bake?” I can make cupcakes and that’s about it.
8. Favorite Fast Food?
Ummm, I don’t know if I can pick a favorite. I love Arby’s and Long John Silver’s and Taco Boy (a local Mexican fast food joint) pretty equally.
9. Would you bungee jump?
Never. I am beyond terrified of heights. Never. Next question.
10. What is the first thing you notice about people?
I don’t know for sure, but I know that had to be doing SOMETHING noticeable, or I probably wouldn’t have looked twice at them 😀
11. When was the last time you cried?
When I watched Intervention. I am not big on crying, but there is something about those damn interventions that gets me every single episode.
12. Any current worries?
Not that I can think of at the moment. But I’m sure I’ll blab it all over Facebook if I do.
13. Name 3 drinks you drink regularly.
Coke (in a can), Mountain Dew (in a can), and now water (room temp, with a straw) because I am being forced to by my husband, my family doc, and my surgeon. Gahhhh, I freaking HATE water 😛
14. What’s your favorite book?
Too many to name!!! I am a book junkie. How about my favorite book to read to my little girl?? That would be Alexander and the Terrible Horrible No Good Very Bad Day.
15. Would you like to be a pirate?
No. I get sea sick. And pirates just don’t look menacing with Sea-Bands and TransdermScop patches on.
16. Favorite Smells?
Lemon anything, but I don’t actually eat lemons. My daughter’s hair after a bath. My hubby’s cologne. Warm brownies. Toasted marshmallows.
17. Why do you blog?
Because it’s my New Year’s resolution. And for the first time in my life I’m keeping it and following through on something!
18. What song do you want played at your funeral?
Hangin Tough by New Kids on the Block. It would be even better if they could just show up and sing it live. No, I am not even joking. ❤ Mrs. Jordan Knight 4ever ❤
19. What is your least favorite thing about yourself?
My nose, my nose, and did I mention MY NOSE?? I hate it. I’ve always hated it. I have yet to find a single member of my family with the same nose. If anyone reading this is a plastic surgeon and wants to provide me with a new one free of charge, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
20. Favorite hobby?
Doing crossword puzzles. Nerdy, I know. But I absolutely love them, and the 200 page puzzle book that my hubby bought me after he got sober was one of the BEST gifts I’ve ever gotten.
21. Name something you’ve done, you never thought you would do?
Succeed at my charity work and my blog page! I didn’t think very many people would take me that seriously.
22. What do you look for in a friend?
Someone who is true to themselves and their values. Someone with a mind and a sense of humor as filthy as mine. Someone who commits to bringing others up rather than beating them down. Someone who is loyal. Someone that has fun and loves life and LIVES it in the moment and isn’t afraid to act like a complete idiot right beside me.
23. Favorite fun things to do?
Go to Vegas with my Wolfpack. Go sledding in the dark with my daughter. Rollerskate. Dress up in 80’s clothes and go out and dance. Have girls night out dinners with my best friends from high school. Hang out with my hubby now that he is sober 🙂
24. Pet peeves?
Horrible, lazy grammar. Toilet paper that is pulled from “under” rather than “over”. The overuse or incorrect use of the word “literally”.
25. What’s the last thing that made you laugh?
Oh jeez. Like I can remember that! I laugh probably a MINIMUM of 57 times a day. It is usally at something rude, inappropriate, vulgar, vain, politically incorrect, snarky or a combination of all of the above.
