Q & A

I’ve been tagged by Snow White and The 76 Dwarfs for a Q & A. If you know me, then you know I don't do these tags, awards or meme's very often. But, she caught me on a good day. Plus I just may be a little partial to her, since she is around the age of my daughters and she's a teacher(my daughter is also a teacher). Add the fact that she is Snow White and little lady loves Snow White, sealed the deal.

Here are the rules.

Step 1: Respond and rework -- answer the questions on your own blog, replace one question that you dislike with a question of your own invention, then add one more question of your own. Beware, I answer honestly.

1) What are you wearing right now? Black sweat pants, orange t-shirt, black Minnesota Gopher football sweatshirt and tennis shoes.

2) What is your biggest fear? Losing my husband, one of my children or grandchildren

3) Do you nap a lot? In my dreams, but never in real life.

4) Who is the last person you hugged? My little people and my husband…it was a group hug.

5) What websites to you visit when you go online? I usually only have time for your blogs. If I have time, I will visit web sites on parenting, natural health/remedies, recipes and researching some other topic’s of interest, but that doesn’t happen very often because of the time issue.

6) What was the last item you bought? A yoga punch card from my yoga teacher.

7) Sweet or salty? Salty

8) If you woke up tomorrow and were a boy, what is the first thing you would do and why? Have sex with a girl because I have always wondered what it feels like for a guy to have sex.

9) Has a celebrity's hair cut ever influenced your own hairstyle? Nope…never has. I am not a celebrity worshiper or into celebrity gossip at all. I have favorite actors and actresses and admire certain things about them and may even think “that’s a cute hairstyle” but it doesn’t make me want to copy them.

10) What is your most embarrassing moment? I have so many. There are two that stand out for different reasons. When I started laughing, in the middle of a funeral, and couldn’t stop…most embarrassing, because that is just wrong. Getting caught skinny dipping by the police when I was 17...most embarrassing because standing in front of policemen while your completely naked, with the head lights from their vehicles shining on you, is pretty uncomfortable and embarrassing.

11) What was the last movie you watched? New In Town, with my husband.(talked about it in my last post)

12) If you had a whole day to yourself with no work, commitments, or interruptions what would you do?

First of all, I would think I had died and gone to heaven. If this was for real and my real life came to a halt for a whole day, that could include only my husband, it would be a whole day of sleep and sex and never getting dressed. I wouldn’t care if I ate or did anything else except for maybe take a shower with my husband. (This would be my first pick, although I wouldn’t complain about having to be alone for a whole day.)

If this was a day to just myself…I would sleep until I woke up and then drink coffee in peace and quiet…maybe do some writing, and start reading a book…then do yoga, soak in a hot bubble bath, watch movies, sleep naked(I love to sleep naked but can‘t anymore because of little people…come to think of it, I don’t think I would get dressed at all, so would have to keep my doors locked and shades/curtains shut.), crank up the music and dance around my house, and probably sleep some more.

13) Do you have any favorite TV shows? What are they? Lost, The Mentalist, Eleventh Hour, Old Christine, Two and a Half Men and Friday Night Lights. I am sure that I am forgetting some but these stand out.

Step 2: Tag - eight other un-tagged people. Since I am not a very good rule follower, I am not going to tag anyone. If you want to be tagged, go for it. Snow White is a teacher, so I hope I don’t get into any trouble for breaking the rules. Sorry Snow White...at least I answered the questions honestly!

I got caught skinny dipping once, by the sheriff and his deputy, on a golf course (don't tell my mother), and I laughed so nervously, I'm sure they thought I was insane or completely bombed out of my gourd (I was neither). Just a girl out for fun with her horny boyfriend. :)

Enjoyed your list.

Stepping Thru said...

You and I are just entirely too much alike. I would do the same thing if I had a totally uninterrupted day, have the same fears and watch the same TV shows. We have experienced so many of the same shit sandwiches in this life. Spooky isn't it?

I am going to ignore the "waking-up-a-man" thing...

Smart Mouth Broad said...

I loved your answers but I guess maybe because I can identify with all of them. I think Snow will let you off the hook. I hear her bark is worse than her bite. *wink*

midlife slices said...

Snow White tagged me too and I'll get around to it soon......I hope. Loved all your answers, as usual. I hope you get that day to do whatever you want....soon. :)

Braja said...

Trouble? Rules? Hey you make your own rules, it's your blog :)

Life with Kaishon said...

You are so interesting : )

You like to be naked a lot. Very fascinating! I am completely the opposite. I almost wish I didn't have to be naked to take a shower.

Your embarassing moment sounds awful. The one good thing about it is that you were in your favorite state: Naked : ).

I think you might need to do a whole post on that story. That seems post worthy to me : ).

SSG said...

hehe no policemen where I grew up to get cuahgt skinny dipping... and usually too cold!
Napping in your dreams but not real life? hahha

And your day off work with no commitments sounds good, though i'd probably put eating some nice food in there too. Oooh a day to be naked and lounge about in bed, sounds great!

If I was a boy, i'd also pee and go for a run, as I always wondered what those things feel like too. I mean, doesn't it get in the way when you run?

Busy Bee Suz said...

Very funny. You and all your nakedness. I am the opposite...the more covered the better!!!!

nothingfancy1 said...

Loved all your answers. I'm like you and would want to spend my "free" day with my husband!

Pseudonymous High School Teacher said...

You cracked me up with the wanting to have sex first off if you were a boy ; -)))

Bina said...

I just LOVE your number 8! You are SO funny!

And you had great answers, but that's just because you are so freaking smart.

Jason, as himself said...

This was a very revealing post! I learned some new things about you, and I like that. We have a lot of these things in common!

And I love The New Adventures of Old Christine.

Debbie said...

Loved reading this. I have the same fear.

2nd Cup of Coffee said...

Just popping in for the first time. I'm a Lost fan, too.

Letters From Home said...

uncomfortable!!! ha ha ha lol can you put a "WARNING" for your children on here? the thought of you having sex (with a man or a women!!!) makes me a tad bit sick :) lol You are my mother, in my mind, you have had sex officialy only 4 times :) Enough times to create your wonderful chillens :)

Twenty Four At Heart said...

I would want to have sex too. I'm sure that surprises you doesn't it? But for the exact same reasons ... I always wonder what it feels like for a guy!
