Amy over at Mike and Amy is expecting her first baby very soon. I enjoy reading her cute updates and her little "ha"s all mixed in. I discovered her blog, I don't know her. She shares my religious beliefs and I hope she doesn't think I am freaky but hey it's a public blog. So this was her challenge......
"I've decided the blogging world has been pretty boring lately. It seems
nothing is going on with anyone right now- ha. So I've made up a tag,
and I tag everyone!"
words you always mis-spell typing: the- I
always type teh. I do this one and, the stupid "i before e except after". I always have to think about it......grrr!
words you don't know how to spell: I am a good speller in general however I type Sheriff wrong. I always want to type Sherriff.
Things that really annoy you: negative people, and people who say "hate", I always say "I don't hate anything but I can dislike it". I have to bite my tongue to stop myself from telling adults they shouldn't hate, but I will tell any child not to use that word.
What's that meal you can always eat over and over again? Chicken tacos with my black bean salsa.
Do you brush your teeth at night? No, I don't floss either! I know naughty.
Dumbest movie ever: this one is tough. I don't think I store dumb movies in my head, if I have to choose it would have to be a talking animal movie (not cartoons) like "Babe" or "Beverly Hills Chihuahua", these are movies I can not even patiently sit and watch with or for my child.
What's a song that you would be embarrassed to admit you really
like? ICE ICE Baby. I mean come on clearly a classic people! Vanilla Ice rocked that one hit wonder!!!
Are you capable of eating an entire bag of candy in one sitting
and not feeling THAT sick? nope. I am not a sweet eater. Now chips and dip, Houston we have a problem.
Do you love sea food? YES, and my daughter loves it too, which is good and bad. Expensive taste at such a young age, future boyfriends beware. My mom said that at her age I didn't even know what shrimp was.
When you fix meat, are you anal about what you've touched, and
sanitize alot? Yes mostly just pork and poultry though. Red meat I am not as anal but still careful.
Do you put your leftovers in the fridge after dinner in fear of
it spoiling or can you wait? Usually, there are somethings that I leave out to cool before refrigerating. Like rice actually can grow bacteria if cooled quickly in the fridge it needs to be room temp. before storing leftover rice. I don't like things to get all soggy from condensation.
Do you use a sponge or rag to wipe your counters? rag! for sure. I use one of those dish soap dispenser sponges to scrub my dishes before I put them in the dishwasher. Otherwise I only use sponges to scrub the floors and bathroom.
What's your favorite Holiday? Christmas/ Halloween. I love decorating for both but the Christmas feeling when you have candles lit and the lights in the window and on the tree and a good Christmas CD playing.
What's your favorite pie? not a huge pie fan, I would say Cherry crumble or Cream pies like banana or coconut.
What's your favorite candy bar? again not a big sweet eater I think someone is missing their sweets (Amy), but it would be the Zero bar, hard to find, usually available at Wal-Mart it is white chocolate with chocolate nougat inside with nuts and caramel
When you pick something up at the store and change your mind, do
you put it away? Not usually, I will give it to the cashier though. I don't generally stuff it on the shelves by the cash register, (probably because I was a cashier and I hated that, just hand it to me dude!).
Do you like raisins in your Cinnamon rolls? Gross, it
ruins the whole experience. I say down with the raisins!!!!
Do you shower every day? No
Are your dreams scary? Sometimes, lately they have been more shall we say "risque"
Do you like scary movies? not blood and gore, I like the suspense ones, the edge of your seat stuff.
Do you like roller coasters? I am not sure. I am glad I went after it is over but I get anxious waiting for it. I scream like a mad woman.
Do you have a fear of needles? no. I don't like them, but I could give myself a shot if I had to.
What's your guilty pleasure TV show? Big Brother, I even subscribe to the live feeds.....terrible I know. I like any reality show, I get totally sucked into anything. Keeping up with the Kardashians, Gene Simmons family jewels. I schedule Survivor and Amazing Race into my life.
What is something you're really stuck up about? My desk, I need my bubble people, this is my personal space now back it up baby, you need scissors I will hand you the scissors, please do not reach into my world and take them!
When you're at a restaurant, can you ask questions about the
food? YES, but I am not a complainer or a substitutor (my own word) I don't ask for special stuff. I will speak up if I need a side of something like sour cream.
Are you a lake or a river person? Lake or river or no lake, well maybe river. Hmm fine both!
Are you a good swimmer? I love to swim, I might not have the technique correct but I can get from point A to point B and I certainly won't drown.
Do you like to camp? Love to camp. Love the fire and the outdoors and the stars. I didn't camp enough last year.
Do you like rodents? Seriously?? who "likes" rodents. Well I guess technically I have 2 of them but they are Guinea Pigs (cute, caged, somewhat stinky, but lots of personality), now a mice or rat, no thank you very much!
Are you afraid of spiders? Yes, yes and yes, however I bravely bury my fear for the sake of my child and take on the triumphant role of household spider destroyer!
If you could be an amazing singer or dancer, which would you be?
Singer I think, I love to sing. I would like to have some dance skills though, just so I don't look like an idiot on the dance floor!
There you go Amy! Hope you enjoy reading. My thoughts and prayers are with you that little Maddie joins you soon healthy, happy and held in your safe loving arms.
