25 Things! About Me! That Hopefully I Haven’t Mentioned Already! HAHAHAHA!

To be fair, I wasn’t actually tagged for this Meme. But I do love me a good Meme and I am trying to get back in the habit of posting frequently. I also know three people who have done it. There you have it. And now, without further ado, twenty-five new,exciting,stupendous things that you never wanted to know about me.

1- I can no longer eat salmon. Sadly, salmon is dead to me forever as a direct result of my first pregnancy. I now like sweet potatoes instead.

2- I have been known to occasionally use song lyrics as a sentence. What? Doesn’t everyone?

3- I read anything. Truly. I devour books.

4- I haven’t read Twilight yet.

5- I love to watch the Superbowl even if I don’t like the teams who are playing because I LOVE,LOVE,LOVE the commercials. And the snacky-snacks.

6- My great-great uncle is a sort of well-known artist. We have two of his paintings. His work is unbelievable. I am quite proud.

7- I also own a wonderful painting by another artist, an old family friend, whom my son is named after. Pretty cool,eh?

8- Did I mention I think Chef’s are hot? I mean they actually have to be sorta hot and then their chefy-ness makes them even hotter.

9- I once got “paddled” at a Fetish club just to see what it was all about. I decided I wasn’t missing all that much.

10- I have a pretty high tolerance for pain.

11- I like to make up silly songs. I will also sing said silly songs pretty much at any given time.

12- I like to make people laugh. I want them to be happy when I am around and to feel good about themselves.

13- I am pretty confident about myself now. I so did not used to be. I think maybe that is an age thing.

14- I like scratch-off lottery tickets. I am actually pretty lucky with them. I mainly stick to the 2$ or maybe 3$ ones though. I’m not quite willing to risk 20$ on one yet. Or maybe ever.

15- Still with the cursing. I am making a very serious attempt at watching the potty mouth in front of the boys. Little pitchers and all that…

16- I may still watch The Hills. I will neither confirm nor deny.

17- I will be thirty-five this year and I am totally stoked about it. No, really.

18- I want to learn a new skill this year. I’m not entirely sure what skill yet, but I will let you know.

19- I love sports, but I have NO idea what a triple-double is. Anyone? Bueller?

20- I am jealous that my boss is pregnant with her third child already.

21- Dub is still not potty trained. He is three. I give up.

22- I am trying really hard to let my hair grow because my husband likes long hair, but I fear it may be a losing battle.

23- I like to watch Joel Osteen on Sunday mornings.

24- I refuse to watch scary movies. Of any kind. Ever.

25- My Diddy is still the funniest person I know. My husband is a close second, followed by my Bubba.

Ta-da! Now don’t you feel better? Like we can maybe be BFF’s? No?

I’m okay with that.

A List Is Sort Of Like A Meme, Right?

I totally stole this from Misty at Our House. I heart her. I received my PiF gift from her today! Squeeee! I have to find my camera and then post pictures. Which I will do. When I remember where the hell my camera is. Because, y’all? It is good stuff! Back to the list. Like Misty, I too make lists. A lot of lists. Lists of lists.

FINISH THE SENTENCE

Maybe I should get off my duff and make my Bubba his shirt, already.

I love the smell of my boys just after getting out of their bath. That smell of freshness and just, little boy. It’s the best smell in the whole wide world to me.

People would say that I am a good friend. I am. I cherish my friendships and work very hard to make sure my friends know they are loved.

I don’t understand why people insist on being rude to people who are attempting to take care of them in some fashion. Be it waiting tables, shopping, servicing an item, etc. It is one of my biggest pet peeves.

I lost my patience with Dub this afternoon. I don’t like it when that happens. It makes me feel bad.

Life is absolutely what you make of it. I always try to see the positive side of things even if I gotta dig deep to find the one little thing that will be positive. It’s who I am.

My past involves involves a person I no longer know how to be. Or even want to be. I am finally content with who I am now.

My idea of a good time is snuggling down under the covers with the boys to watch a good movie. And getting to smooch a few pink bellies along the way.

I wish I was thinner. What? Who doesn’t? I am working on that part of me. I’m pretty comfortable in my own skin, finally.

Twins are my fondest wish! Especially twin GIRLS! Don’t let my husband see this. He would have the big one for sure.

Dust bunnies are currently breeding in the nooks and crannies of my home. ( I totally stole this answer too! Well, it applied to my home situation. And besides, it was a good answer!).

Tomorrow I’m going to sleep late. Yeah, baby.

I have low tolerance for people who do not LISTEN. I HATE HAVING TO REPEAT MYSELF. Unless you are slightly hard of hearing. Then I don’t mind so much.

I’m totally terrified of spiders and zombies. Oh Sweet Jeebus, I just thought of something. Can you have a Spider-zombie?  You can’t right? Right? Hello?

I wonder why people bother having children if they aren’t going to love them and teach them how to be good and productive human beings.

Never in my life have I seen Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Or Chitty-Chitty Bang-Bang. What? I haven’t.

High school was not as angst ridden as it could have been. I was in band. I was cool. Hey, you can laugh all you want to. I am STILL friends with these people after twenty years.

When I’m nervous I get all sweaty and clammy. Blech.

One time at a family gathering I bent over to reach for something and may have accidentally farted. I was pregnant. I think that makes it okay.

Take my advice: Always follow your heart. You won’t have any regrets that way.

Taking a good picture is sometimes an elusive skill for me.

I’m almost always late.

I’m addicted to flavored creamer in my coffee. I love all kinds. Except plain chocolate and hazelnut. Blech.

I want someone to give me a pedicure. And then maybe a backrub. Yeah.

  

Meme, Meme, Who Can I Turn To?


O-kaaaay. This has taken me half the morning to complete, but I feel QUITE triumphant now that I have! Jeebus.

I got this idea from the very lovely Wordnerd over at Jambalaya. One teeny,tiny thing. My questions are back-asswards. Sorry about that.

So here is what you do. Go to Flickr, sign up if you need to. Then enter the answers to these questions in the search engine. Tag your favorite photo and voila! I am going to give y’all the questions backwards, so you can see my answers to them. Enjoy!

1- What is your Flickr name?
2- Choose one word to describe yourself.
3- What do you love most in life?
4- What do you want to be when you grow up?
5- What is your favorite dessert?
6- Where is your dream vacation?
7- What is your favorite drink?
8- Who is your celebrity crush?
9- What is your favorite color?
10- Where did you go to high school?
11- What is your favorite food?
12- What is your first name?

Crap…

I already mentioned the whole Monopoly thing. So here are TWO new random facts about yours truly.

1- I, or rather my parent’s, received two tickets to some event that took place during the Olympics here in ’96, for giving up my seat on a bus. We had just been to the Ray Charles concert at Centennial Park where I discovered a tiny bit of claustrophobia. It occured after the concert as everyone was leaving. It was rather terrifying and scared the hell out of my mother. She said she hoped to never see that look on my face again. Anyhoo. We were riding MARTA back to where we had parked the car. I am still freaking out and this woman gets on the bus. She is older than I am and so exhausted she can barely see straight. Being the good southern girl that I am , I offer my seat. She was quite shocked. Especially after learning what had happened. So she tells my parent’s that she WORKS for the Olypics and offers two tickets to womens’ something. For free. Because I was polite. My parent’s turn them down at first. Because that was just how I was raised. But she insisted. So there is the story of how my parent’s were able to attend their very first Olympic Games.

Kinda cool,eh?!

2- I cannot make grilled cheese. What? I can make fancy French sauces with the best of them. Grilled cheese? Not so much.

And now you know.

Meme, How I love ya, how I love ya…

That’s right! It’s Meme Time. This comes from Burgh Baby’s Mom. I’m sorry I can’t provide the frickin’ link, but all my stuff is possibly disabled. I dunno.

Anyhoo, the meme is 7 random things about me. Are you ready?

1- I curse like a sailor. I know. I generally do not do it in front of the children. Or while at work. But I have the worst potty mouth.

2- If I play Monopoly I have to be the Dog. Or I won’t play. Same goes with Trivial Pursuit. If I can’t be pink I’m not playing.

3- I read thrashy romance novels. What? Like I’m the only one.

4- I know the layout of every department store in every mall I have EVER been in. Them’s mad skillz right there!

5- I used to be a bartender and I made up the world’s greatest shot. It’s called Pull Your Panties Up. It is fruity and very yummy. It will also kick your ass if you aren’t careful.

6- I can’t type.

7- I love to sing karaoke with my girlfriends. I’m not bad. I won’t win any competitions, but I don’t suck and that is enough for me.

Don’t you all feel like you know me better now?!

I tag whoever hasn’t done this meme. Leave a comment in the comments.

Meme Alert!

I got this from Zoot! And you know how much I love meme’s!Basically you have to list one relevant fact or tidbit for each letter of your first or middle name. Then you are supposed to tag as many people as there are letters in your name. Yeah, good luck with that! I don’t think I HAVE that many people who read my blog! Instead I say do it if you wanna!

J- Just Jenny! I prefer to be called Jenny or Jen. Never Jennifer. It makes me think I am in trouble!

E- Exhausted. Getting up at six am to drive your husband to work really sucks.

N- Nerdy. Well, hello! I am doing a meme!

N- Nutty- I believe it gives me character!

I- Imagination. I have always had a rather vivid one. It is something I encourage in my children.

F- Friendly. ‘Cause I am.

E- Eager. For the potty training to be OVER WITH ALREADY.

R- Relieved. It is almost the weekend. Ah, sleeping in…
