Thirteen Things ...times three and then some.

I know, this is cheating. But I'm desperate. And I completed this on Tuesday.

It's just past the middle of NaBloPoMo and I've got nothing. So a meme it will have to be. Desperate times call for desperate measures.

I borrowed this meme from my bloggy pal Melissa (just in time, I must say). Well, at least most of it. I left the last question off because I'm a tad superstitious.

So here we go...

1. Do you like blue cheese? LOVE it.

2. Have you ever smoked? Yes, but not tobacco. Oh wait, maybe a couple puffs of cigar. But not even mary-jo-wanna. I did light up and inhale some weird herbal cigarettes that stunk; just to prove to myself that I could smoke if I wanted to. So now I know that I definitely don't want to.

3. Do you own a gun? No.

4. What flavor of Kool Aid was your favorite? Strawberry or cherry ... whatever the red is.

5. Do you get nervous before doctor appointments? No.

6. What do you think of hot dogs? Like them. Helped my kids polish off 54 of them, don't you know...

7. Favorite Christmas movie? A Christmas "You'll shoot your eye out" Story.

8. Favorite thing to drink in the morning? Coffee.

9. Can you do push ups? Some, but the lazy-ass lady kind.

10. What’s your favorite piece of jewelry? The ring that hubs bought me for the birth of my boy. Silver with encrusted diamonds and garnet stone, engraved with the boy's name and birthdate.

11. Favorite hobby? Blogging, how'd you guess?

12. Do you have A.D.D? Don't think so, but that would explain a few things.

13. What’s one trait you hate about yourself? I can be very impatient, often with my kids.

14. Middle name? Mary

15. Name 3 thoughts at this exact moment.
1) I drank too much coffee.
2) I have nothing to post tomorrow.
3) I need to get the invitations out for the girl's party

16. Name 3 drinks you regularly drink? Coffee, tea, water

17. Current worry? Getting my work project out without breaking my back.

18. Current hate right now? That hubby's working more weekends than he's not, at least it seems that way.

19. Favorite place to be? With my family.

20. How did you bring in the new year? We were in Mont Tremblant, in a ski condo, watching Shrek 3 with the kids. I think we slept through midnight.

21. Where would you like to go? Manhattan. Lurve NYC. Someplace I've never been? Ireland maybe Russia.

22. Name three people who might complete this: Go for it if you need it!

23. Do you own slippers? Yes.

24. What shirt are you wearing? Wine coloured sweater hoodie.

25. Do you like sleeping on satin sheets? No. Too slippery ... okay, stop there.

26. Can you whistle? Not really. I can yell, though.

27. Favorite color? Purple.

28. Would you be a pirate? No. I get seasick.

29. What songs do you sing in the AM?: Top 40 stuff that the girl wishes I wouldn't. Like Pink, Katy Perry, Akon, Neo, Lady Gaga, Madonna ...

30. Favorite Girl’s Name: Quinn

31. Favorite boy’s name: Aidan (stop laughing, if we'd had a twins for the last pregnancy, it was definitely a possibility ;0)

32. What’s in your pocket right now? Grocery list.

33. Last thing that made you laugh? My husband's hair (a constant state of amusement for me... I need help).

34. What vehicle do you drive? Honda Odyssey. In universal bland tan. Wasn't my first choice but you can't beat the convenience when you've got kids and crap. Don't hold it against me.

35. Worst injury you’ve ever had? Probably happened when I was a kid, at about 3 years of age. I was being chased by my cousin Batman and fell into a wooden baby toilet seat ... my two front teeth were slammed back up into my gums. I don't remember it, thank gawd...just writing this made me cringe.

36. Do you love where you live? Pretty much.

37. How many TVs do you have in your house? 4

38. Who is your loudest friend? Probably my oldest friend, but she's at least a tie with me. It's an Asian thing... we yell.

39. Do you have any pets? Goldie the goldfish.

40. Does someone have a crush on you? I think so. My little girl is going through an "I love mommy" thing 24/7.

41. Your favorite book(s): Books, what are they again? I'm partial to the "Walter the Farting Dog" and "Knuffle Bunny" series, but I'll have to check my Goodreads. Maybe I need to jump on the Twilight wagon?

42. Do you collect anything? Everything. I'm a packrat. Magazines are my biggest thing (I think I've got almost every issue of Canadian House & Home since 1995, hidden in the walls ... don't tell my husband).

43. Favorite Sports Team? You know, I'm pretty lame. I don't follow any. Other than the hometown teams I don't know of many.

So are you still awake? Sorry it was so long.

Hope you have an awesome Thursday!

Isn't that a great meme? Now I just have to think of something to post for today....:)

Karen said...

I love reading all the nitty-gritty on people. Memes are great for that.

Shawna said...

Jump on the Twilight bandwagon! Jump!

Interesting--very interesting.

My favorite Christmas movie used to be Christmas Story--I think either The Ref or Elf has now taken over. I'm sick like that!

Dina said...

i love it...may have to steal it for tomorrow :)
It's getting harder and harder to think for meself these days and you've helped me a great deal :)

Ginaagain said...

I'm sure I'll be stealing this from you before long!

My daughter insisted that I had to read the Twilight series. It was engaging but not great. "Water for Elephants" is my favorite read for the last six months.

That's a good meme....if I hadn't already blown Nablopomo I would take it!
