20 things

I'm stealing this from Misadventures with Andi

I'm not really a big fan of memes and considered letting the kitties have at this one for First Fursday but they had other things in mind. And I have absolutely nothing in mind for this Monday except to cross things off my massive task list. So I'll try to make it as interesting as possible.

1. I don’t really think I can manage _______________ today.

Not to stab people. It's Monday, I'm slammed, and the Drama Llama is adding to it in the most dramatic and llamalicious ways possible.

2. What did you have for breakfast this morning?

Stryofoam. Or, well, an apple cinnamon rice cake.

3. Share some recent good news.

I saved 19% on my car insurance by switching to Geico! No, I didn't. I did, however, find out that Joe received a special award at work. I shall blog about it sometime soon. The good news part being that it put some cash in the bank that we plan to use on our trip to California next month.

4. What was the last movie you saw? What did you think of it?

I watched Blow Dry with Alan Rickman last Thursday (I think). It was an odd movie - he played a decent man and didn't eat any babies. But I enjoyed it.

5. If you had to, could you do commentary for a sporting event?

I could. I'm not sure anyone would find it very useful but I could totally give it a shot. "Now they'll kick the ball between those post thingys. No? They run with it again? What's a 'down'?"

6. What makes you feel better when you're sick?

Robot armadillos. And this guy.

7. What do you listen to in the car?

Currently, Kelly Clarkson, Ryan Star, and Lifehouse.

8. What were the last five foods you ate?

Cinnamon mint, water, styrofoam, low-acid orange juice and my daily meds.

9. Who was your first prom date?

His name was Paul. He had long stupid hair.

10. What was your first grade teacher's name?

Mrs. Duncan. She yelled at me a lot.

11. How many weddings have you been in?

Not counting my own, I was a bridesmaid in one and flower girl for both of my uncles. I've sang, played piano and done readings in about a million others though. My own sister didn't ask me to be in her wedding. Awesome, huh?

12. Who is on your "List"?

Simon Baker, Paul Rudd (pre-stupid movies), Bradley Cooper (pre-stupid movies). Anderson Cooper (but I guess we'd just go shopping).

13. I love you more than _____________.

black pepper

14. Oranges or grapefruit?

Oranges. Grapefruit are yuck.

15. What is the earliest memory you have of your first day of school?

I remember my first day of kindergarten - I was excited to see Samantha there from my daycare. She had on a pink skirt with a Garfield belt. No idea what I wore.

16. Would you ever choose money over love?

No. But since I love money, isn't it the same thing? Plus, the guy I love makes money so I can pretend I'm keeping him because he's awesome even though it's really about his income.

17. Four people who e-mail me regularly:

Joe, SisterFriend, Television Without Pity,

18. What were your favorite books as a child?

Anne of Green Gables, Little House, Sweet Valley Twins/High, Nancy Drew, Shel Silverstein

19. Never in my life:

Have I: traveled to Africa, streaked, had a job I loved, eaten alligator.

20. Ever been given an engagement ring?

Joe has given me three engagement rings. Only one marriage though.

Back to work. So freaking much to do. So much done already. So far to go.


Ronnica said...

Three engagement rings? That sounds like a story...

a corgi said...

congrats to Joe on his award!! this was cute to read; hoping the day gets better soon and less drama involved


mo.stoneskin said...

Speaking on behalf of my local robot armadillo community they are slightly upset that none of them made it onto your list.

Seansmoma said...

Yes, Simon Baker is also on my list (And my Mom's. Is that weird??)

Betty said...

LOL So funny! I´m going to do this too!

SparkleFarkle said...

Ahhh! Rice cakes! They look like urinal cakes, but, indeed, taste like Styrofoam. Which is better than tasting like urinal cakes. But then again, apple-cinnamon ones might be a new treat sensation for tongue buds!

Ryan Ashley Scott said...

I think I'd rather listen to your commentary than the ordinary ones. The posty-things? I know exactly what you're talking about. The ordinaries sound so boring and confusing.

Evansmom said...

Funny post!

I used to try to do commentary when I was in the booth at my son's Little League games. I got some serious dirty looks from some of the kids. No sense of humor when I would anounce "Up next, Mr. red-shoes himself, Alllllleeeeexxxx". Of course the worse look I got was when I announced my son as Evan "he needs a haircut" (insert last name here).

Sassy Britches said...

As much as you think this was a cop-out, I kinda liked it!

slacker-chick said...

So do you have a crush on Alan Rickman too? I LUV's that man!

Tiffany said...

HAHA you are just too funny!

You should try some alligator - it's really good!

Tori_z said...

Might play this one soon on my blog. :)

I'm with you on the grapefruit/oranges thing
