48 Questions

24th January 2013

I borrowed this from the lovely Elaine because she misses old school blogging and so do I. Feel free to do the same and let me that you did so I can read it too!

48 QUESTIONS:


1. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE? 

My parents fought about what to name me – my dad wanted Maria after his mother and my mom wanted Anna after her sister, so they stuck me with both (yup, Maria is actually my middle name). Then again, if you know anything about how Greeks name their kids, you’ll know that every second person in my extended family is named Maria. Or Gus.

2. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED?

Last night – that fabric softener commercial was very sad.

3. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING?

The only thing I handwrite these days is To Do lists, which remind me of how much laundry I have to do. Just for that reason alone, no I hate my handwriting.

4. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH MEAT?

I actually hate lunch meat, however if forced to eat it, I would choose Mortadella. I’ll be honest though, I’m not sure Mortadella is actually food – it’s kind of like a squeaky/slimy edible version of soft leather I think.

5. DO YOU HAVE KIDS?

Yes, I have three. Two I birthed and one I married.

6. IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON, WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU?

Yup. I give the best presents. Also, when I blow my nose I don’t look in the kleenex, about 90% of the time. You so want to be my best friend.

7. DO YOU USE SARCASM A LOT?

I feel like this question is accusing me of something I’m not ready to respond to.

8. DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS?

Yes.

9. WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP?

HELLS NO. I wouldn’t jump off a ladder onto my driveway so yeah, bungee jumping will NEVER happen.

10. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CEREAL?

I hate cereal and all that it stands for.

11. DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF?

Nope.

12. DO YOU THINK YOU ARE STRONG?

I created two human beings and birthed them out of my person so I would say so. Also, I can lug two full hampers down three flights of stairs without even blinking, so take that!

13. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ICE CREAM?

Finally, a real food question – I loved Tin Roof as a kid, but now I’m a vanilla fan.

14. WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE?

Their smile.

15. RED OR PINK?

Pink.

My levels of anxiety. Also, random chin hairs are not a highlight.

My girlfriends who all live too far away from me.

When the husband talks about work, I need to make it less obvious when I fall asleep listening to him.

YOUR TURN!!

FUNK

16th March 2011

Yes, I meant to say FUNK.

You are a dirty person for thinking otherwise. (Please note: I likes you anyway)

I am in the nastiest funk right now.

Can’t shake it no matter how hard I try.

The smallest thing aggravates the crap out of me – the Tivo being disconnected, messy floors, the mailman being late. Seriously, nothing and no one is safe from my bitchy wrath.

I need a funk specialist asap. I wonder if Oprah has one of those – she has everything else, so she probably has several.

I bet she has a shitload of cardigans too.

Damn you Oprah!

What To Take In Case of a Emergency

18th August 2010

Do you ever ask yourself what you would take with you in case of an Armageddon/Apocalypse/holy shit someone just blew up the Starbucks kind of emergency?

Too dramatic?

Okay, well let’s say you had to leave your house real quick because of a you’re-avoiding-the-in-laws kind of emergency (yes to some, this equals the apocalypse). What would you take with you in case of  a fake emergency?

While you ponder, let me tell you what I would take.

First, let’s set aside the obvious take-withs:

  • Kids – legally required to do so – also they are too cute to leave behind.
  • Husband – full-time chauffeur – also legally obligated.
  • Handbag – contains cash and 400 lip glosses that I can’t live without.
  • Cell – because the urge to tweet is STRONG.

Obvious stuff now in hand, what about those other can’t-live-without items?

In case of emergency, I won’t forget:

  • A lamp – in case I need to see something in the dark.
  • Bacon – because protein is always important when running from aliens (and in-laws).
  • Bandaids – to help in reattaching that limb lost when running from that meteor (or in-law).
  • Perfume – because smelling like a daisy is always a lovely thing.
  • A pen and paper – to make a list of things I probably should have brought in case of that emergency, that just happens to be happening while I’m making said list.
  • Workout dvd – for those need-to-tone-your-thigh moments.
  • Lego – in case I need something painful to step on when I happen to be barefoot.
  • Starbucks card – because if I don’t have access to my daily latte, it might as well be the apocalypse.
  • Photos of my loved ones – VERY important – DO NOT leave behind.
  • Tape – to tape said beloved photos to the ceiling (for. safe. keeping)

I am so prepared now.

What will you take?
