40 Questions With A Twist

MoodSwingMabel did this the other day and seeing that I am super lazy I thought it would be fun to do myself so I stole it from her!

1. My uncle once: helped me skip school when I was 16. We went all over Connecticut looking at antique stores and he kept telling me not to touch anything. He ended up breaking something and he left his phone number so they could tell them how much he owed. My Aunt answered the phone and she told them they had the wrong number so they gave a description of my Uncle and ME! My mom and my Aunt were pissed at both of us but it was so worth it! 

2. Never in my life: Have I had a driving ticket. Knock on wood!

3.When I was five: I used to run away from home on a daily basis. I would get to the end of the street and stop and sit on the corner. My next door neighbor asked me what I was doing one day and I told him “I’m running away from home but I’m not allowed to cross the street by myself!”

4.High School was: weird for me. I loved choir and I found everything else just to hard for me. I don’t like having to learn things that I am never going to use again. To me it’s a waste of my time and what little space I have in my head. 

5.I will never forget: The last words I said to my mother. I told her I would be OK on my own and that I loved her.

6.I once met: Fuzzy Zoeller the golfer. He talked to my girls for about an hour after his golf round. I was also thisclose to Glenn Fry at the Masters once. Somewhere we have a picture of me with him standing behind me.

7. There’s this girl I know who: actually there are 2 of them and they are the best things that could have ever happened to me!

8. Once, at a bar: I had just a sip of a beer and then I headed straight to the bathroom and lost my cookies. That’s when I knew I was pregnant with my second daughter!

9. By noon, I’m usually: making myself lunch or playing on the computer.

10. Last night: I made venison burgers and grilled them and then we watched Jack Frost.

11. If only I had: my own restaurant I would be in heaven!

12. Next time I go to church: I will try to behave myself.

13. Terry Schiavo: I thought it was cruel to keep her alive the way they did. But I hope it opened up people’s eyes that they need to make a living will no matter what age they are.

14. What worries me most: Making sure my kids are well prepared to make it on their own

15. When I turn my head left, I see: my printer.

16. When I turn my head right, I see: the canal and cow pasture outside my back window.

17. You know I’m lying when: I won’t look you in the eye and I giggle a little.

18. What I miss most about the eighties: The music, the TV shows…the 80’s were awesome!

19. If I was a character in Shakespeare, I’d be: go back up to #4. I have no clue Shakespeare was useless knowledge to me!

20. By this time next year: I hope my husband is celebrating a year of  sobriety.

21. A better name for me would be: I don’t know Mom just fits so well. Maybe Grammy in about 10 years?!

22. I have a hard time understanding: why people get totally enraged over things they have no control over. If you can’t change it then deal with it and move on. Life is just to short!

23. If I ever go back to school, I’ll: be there volunteering!

24. You know I like you if: I laugh at your jokes.

25. If I ever won an award, the first person I’d thank would be: All the little people I stepped on to get it!

26. Darwin, Mozart, Slim Pickens & Geraldine Ferraro: Darwin had some pretty good theories, Mozart made some great music, Slim Pickens was what my mom would say to me while looking through the clearance racks after Christmas and I am glad Mondale-Ferraro lost the presidential election to Reagan-Bush. 

27.Take my advice, never: let your brother tie your Big Wheel to the back of his 6 speed bike. It’s an ER visit waiting to happen!

28.My ideal breakfast is: Fried eggs, bacon, english muffin with Blue Bonnet on it and corned beef hash. If only I could eat it every day!

29. A song I love, but do not own is: Come on Eileen is the first one that popped into my head!

30. If you visit my hometown, I suggest: Visit NASA and our Zoo.

31. Tulips, character flaws, microchips, & track stars: Tulips are beautiful but I can’t grow them, character flaws are just God’s sense of humor in action, microchips have changed the world and track stars do it despite the hurdles.

32.Why won’t people: respect the need for quiet time! I swear I figured out why I don’t read books it’s because I can’t at least not in my house! The minute anyone sees me with a book in my hands that’s when they decide to talk to me!

33.If you spend the night at my house: you would have to sleep on the world’s most uncomfortable sleeper sofa that my in-laws gave us. It is straight out of the 70’s with its gold colored flower patterns!

34. I’d stop my wedding for: apparently nothing! My first attempt at marriage they got to the part where they ask who gives this woman away and they all looked at my mom and she said “Sure as hell not me!” I did it anyway! My second attempt I had a really bad case of morning sickness and ruined my dress but I found a backup and did it anyway!

35. The world could do without: people who hate just for the sake of hating.

36. I’d rather lick the belly of a cockroach than: have to clean up after sick kids!

37.My favorite blonde is: …my daughter.

38: Paper clips are more useful than: rubber bands!

39. If I do anything well, it’s: cook.

40. And by the way: Life’s tough. It’s even tougher if you’re stupid. (John Wayne)
