More shit than you'd ever want to know about me. Ripped right off of CBear's blog since I'm completely and utterly devoid of any other blog fodder this week...Elaborate on your default icon
When I joined the Knittyboard, I knew I needed an avatar to fit in. So I googled "sheep" and that little sheep made from an egg came up. I thought it was cute and I made it into an avatar. I don't change it here, but on the Knittyboard I've been changing it with the season. Right now it's a still from Holiday Inn, where Der Bingle sings White Christmas. What’s your current relationship status?
Happily married for 9 years now, together for 11 altogether.Ever have a near-death experience?
Nope. I try to be careful.Name an obvious quality you have:
Sense of humor. I think it would be obvious from the moment I open my mouth to speak.What’s the name of the song that’s stuck in your head right now?
Earlier this morning it was "It's Electric! Boogie oogie oogie..." Thank God that's passed. Right now, I'm song free, but if something jumps in before I post this, I'll add it here.Any celeb you would marry?
I'd have to meet one first! But are there some I'd like to meet, or maybe sweat up the sheets with...youbetcha. Right now I'd like to wear Brett Favre out in a big way, and I find Stephen Colbert oddly sexy. Who will cut and paste this first?
I don't know, really. Most of the people who read my blog have interesting and exciting blogs of their own. I want to be like them.Has anyone ever said you look like a celebrity?
No, not so much. Though one time I went to a Mary Kay party and got all tarted up with their makeup and I thought I looked an awful lot like Mimi from The Drew Carey Show.Do you wear a watch?
No. Time has no meaning to me anymore.Do you have anything pierced?
Just my ears. I wanted to get them pierced again when I was a teenager and my mother forbade me until I was 18. Well, by the time I was 18, I didn't want that second trendy hole quite so much. It's why I don't have a tattoo, either. Buyers remorse and all.Do you have any tattoos?
No, see above. I've never found anything I've felt the need to make a permanent part of my body.Do you like pain?
No, but I handle it okay, I think. Did I tell you that Emma was 9 lbs, 2 oz., her arm came out at the same time as her head, and the epidural didn't take? I didn't like it, but I survived it. But now that I think of it, there are some "light bondage" activities that involve a wee bit of pain that actually translates into pleasure, so I can't really say my answer is an unequivocal "no".Do you like to shop?
For yarn, yes. I could do it all day long, and have been known to. I hate clothes shopping, unless it's for my kids. I don't mind grocery shopping either.What was the last thing you paid for with cash?
We pay for most everything with cash. I think the last thing was a juice for Bug on the way to school a couple days ago.What was the last thing you paid for with your credit card?
We don't have any credit cards! I even transferred some money to my debit card for some online shopping and haven't had to use it yet!Who was the last person you spoke to on the phone?
My friend Steve. He called last night to see if DH was available to help another friend out at his business this weekend. What is on your desktop background?
A field of tulips. I need to switch it to my winter background now.What is the background on your cell phone?
I don't have a cell phone.Do you like redheads?
Absolutely. I think I was supposed to be a redhead and something got mixed up somewhere. My Grammy was a redhead.Do you know any twins?
Sure do! Baboo is a twin, and my cousin has twin boys. My dad has cousins that are twins.Do you have any weird relatives?
You should ask me if I have any normal relatives. It would take less time to list them. I'm reminded of a quote by Julia Sugarbaker from Designing Women: "We never hide our crazy relatives, we bring them right on into the parlor and show them off. Southerners never ask if you have crazy people in your family, they ask which side they are on." That goes for us damn yankees, too.What was the last movie you watched?
I think it was one of the Austin Powers movies.What was the last book you read?
Thrones, Dominations. It's a Lord Peter Wimsey novel.Is there such a thing as love at first sight, or it is more likely to be lust at first sight?
Yes, and yes. What’s your favorite book?
I have so many that it's really not a fair question. Really, there are tons of them.When was the last time you visited the street where you first lived?
I still live on the street where I first lived. In the same house, even.When was the last time you googled your own name?
Not in awhile, but nothing about me actually comes up. There are quite a few successful people with my name out there, though.What was / is your favorite subject at school?
English, literature and composition. What was / is your least favorite subject at school?
Math all the way. Ugh.Do you like having your photograph taken?
I loathe it. Unless I'm naked, and then it's just good kinky fun.What time were you born?
8:26 a.m. by caesarean section.Ever seriously questioned your sanity?
Nope, I'm right as the mail.How many phone numbers do you have remembered and can say off the top of your head?
Hmmm, tons, really. I can call my immediate family, my inlaws, and a bunch of friends.Can you Limbo?
No, I'm not very bendy.Have you ever killed your own dinner?
No, but I've eaten meals my mother has killed. (She used to bowhunt.)How long have you been living at your current residence?
38years. 39 in April.What phobias do you have?
I'm afraid of heights, and I'm not crazy about the dark either.What’s your ideal breakfast?
Anything sweet. Could be pancakes or waffles, donuts, muffins, danish...big piece of chocolate cake. I don't really care.Where are you right now?
At the computer, obviously. It's in the kitchen.Why do you blog?
Why not?What would you call your autobiography?
Ask Poops, Please.What’s the longest time you’ve stayed out of the country / where?
Back during my mis-spent youth, I spent about 6 or 8 weeks of two consecutive summers in the Far East.Do you use ICQ, AIM, etc..?
No.Do you have nightmares frequently?
I have anxiety dreams before attempting something new, but usually they're just regular dreams. My pregnancy dreams are AMAZING. It's like being at the cinema all night. I swear I'm exhausted just from being up all night in my head watching these weird shows.If you were another person, would you be friends with you?
Of course. We'd be best friends!Which TV character could you be friends with?
Lennie Briscoe. Chandler Bing. Janitor on Scrubs. Everyone on My Name is Earl. What’s on your mouse pad?
A gel wrist rest.What is your ring tone?
I don't have a ring tone. I don't have a cell phone, remember?What did you watch on TV last night?
I made it most of the way through Earl before I had to go to bed. I didn't feel well at all.Scary movies or happy endings?
Happy ending. I hate scary movies.
There you go. Fifty things about me you never really needed to know. Feel free to cut and paste at will...
