20 Questions

I tend to create blog posts around the photos I have taken over the week, and they usually consist of Canon. Sometimes you have other people or events to see, but generally speaking it is the same thing, so I figured I would give you guys a break from that and do a little questionnaire instead. 

So grab some popcorn, sit back, and enjoy my answers to this series of dumb questions that I found on the internet a long time ago the outpouring of my soul.

What is your road trip essential snack?
If you had asked me this questions a few weeks ago, I would have said Combos. The pretzel kind with fake cheddar cheese filling. Now? Now, I would probably say water and, if I have to eat something, then pretzel sticks or a banana. Stupid metabolism, getting older, and figuring out you have to stop eating like crap. Wait, did I type that out loud?

You've been handed two free round-trip tickets...who are you taking and where are you going?
I am taking Craig to France and England. More specifically, to visit all over France {evewhere from Provence to Paris and everywhere in between}, and to the Lake District in England.

What was your high school jam?

Seriously, though. I really dislike when people say "that's my jam". It sounds like a bunch of middle-aged soccer moms got together and said "Hmmm, what will make us sound like we can hang with the young folks today? I'll just say, 'that's my jam' for anything I like. That should do it." FYI - it definitely does not make you sound cool.

Would you rather have a perfect bum, or a flawless face?
Since no one but my husband should be looking at my bum, I am going to have to go with a flawless face. Everyone should be looking at that. Wait, no.

What shows are you ashamed to admit are on your DVR?
I don't have a DVR, but if I did I would probably say "Hart of Dixie". I would be "ashamed" because it is not really the type of show that I normally watch. I am not really ashamed of it though. So, nothing.

What's your ringtone?
It depends on who is calling. My mom's ringtone is of, what sounds like, an older Jewish lady from Brooklyn saying "Answer the phone right now, it's your motha'. Answer the phone! Answer the phone right now, it's your motha!" Gets me every time.

How old were you when you had your first kiss? Was it meh or toe-curling?
I was 14 when I had my first kiss. It was with my boyfriend at the time, and I truly believed that I loved him so it was toe-curling. Ah, the things that I know now.

Do you have any siblings, and if so, where are you in the birth order.
I am the oldest of five. My parents kept trying for one as good as me. Sadly, they never hit the mark.

What physical quirk were you born with?
Hmmm, hyper-extension in my knees and elbows, an extremely intelligent bum, and a knack for answering questions with really ridiculous answers.

What was your first car, and did you name it?
My first car was a 1985 BMW. You could be impressed, but just remember that I received it in 1998, so it was old when I got it. Not "vintage"...old. I really liked it, but my dad liked it more and decided I needed something more "dependable" for college. I did not name it, mostly because it was a car.

What would you request for your last supper?
Hmmmm, filet mignon cooked medium rare, grilled salmon, mashed potatoes, scalloped potatoes, cheese broccoli, salad with feta cheese, garlic bread, and chocolate cake with chocolate icing for dessert. Hey, if it's my last dinner then I don't have to worry about all of the starches. Or anything really except why it is my last dinner.

Have you ever been hospitalized, and if so, what for?
I had double knee surgery in high school, and I had a baby boy in 2010. Both required a hospital. Well, I guess technically having Canon didn't require a hospital but I felt better being in one after having labored with him for 22 hours. I wish I was kidding.

I know it looks like I was teaching him something and counting things off on my fingers. In reality, I was dealing with the effects of PUPPS and I couldn't stop scratching. The things I went through for this kid.

How tall are you? Do you wish you were taller, shorter...or are you just right?
I am 5'2", and though I tried, my parents refused to allow me to have steel rods surgically inserted into my legs to make me taller. Basically, it is their fault that I was never a professional ballerina. Thanks guys.

Do you prefer to DIY or hire it out?
My thoughts are that if it is something involving electrical or plumbing work, then we will hire it out. Otherwise, why not DIY?!

What do you eat for breakfast?
I had a breakfast bar this morning, along with some coffee of course.

What would you do for a living if you didn't need money?
I would travel around the world, taking photos of everything I saw. Shocking, I know.

Finish this sentence: Every room needs....
Air-conditioning. I am way too hot-natured not to have that little gem.

This is me all of the time. No hot flashes, just hot...stability. Coincidentally, this is also Craig. Poor guy.

How frequently do you wash your hair? Do you have any hair secrets or tricks?
I wash it every time I take a shower. What? You didn't ask how often I shower. {Daily.} I have many hair tricks. They involve bobby pins and elastic bands. I can't say anymore, or I would have to kill you. Ok, fine. It also involves a brush. Sometimes.

Will you leave the house without makeup?
I have done so in the past, but I try not to make it a habit. My eye lashes are so light that it looks like I don't have any eyes if I don't wear makeup. Do you know how weird a person looks without eyes?! Dogs bark, children cry, women run the other way, men grab their guns. Very strange, indeed.

You just unloaded your Halloween haul...what candy do you go for first?
I don't really love candy...unless there are Jelly Belly jelly beans involved. In that case, all bets are off and everyone else better back off.

What totally inane talent do you possess?
I can wiggle my eyes. It serves absolutely no purpose except for it being a cool party trick that also makes me feel as if I am in an earthquake or having a seizure. Or both.

So there you have it folks : a break from the everyday here at this blog. I will see you back tomorrow for a little Wordless Wednesday action.
