I haven’t sung since the sixth grade talent show when I sang Pat Benatar’s “Hell Is For Children”. Then at the end, Mr. Shaman the emcee said “No, hell is for everyone who heard you sing that song.” My mom was so mad at him that she slept with him and ruined his marriage. -Elliot, Scrubs
We just got back yesterday from a 4 night stay with the in-laws. Our weekend was crazy busy. First Token Gay Guys’ wedding, then Match’s cousin’s high school graduation, then his cousin’s birthday/grad party the next day. I’ve got so much catching up to do with you all, and many blog entries to write, but I’m still recovering from it all. So I’m going to play along with WWTKW and I promise I’ll be back with stories tomorrow. Starting with my first paintball experience and how I had to repeatedly explain the GINORMOUS bruise on my arm and insist that no, Match does not beat me.
With that lovely introduction, here we go!
1). If the blogging world had a talent show, what would your act be?
I wasn’t sure if this question referred to my blogging talents, or my talents in real life. I’m going to go with real life and say it would be singing. I wish I had some cool and unique talent but that’s about all I can do. That and be the life of a party. Is that a talent?
2). What’s the most likely reason you might become famous?
Well it wouldn’t be for singing. I love to sing but I’m no rock star. I can’t really see myself as famous except for if I were involved in some sort of scandal, caused by my drunken tom foolery no doubt. Or if I actually wrote a book and it became super popular. Now that would be cool!
3). What question are you repeatedly asked that you are tired of hearing?
Now that I’m not working, a lot of people ask me what I do. It’s always tough because I feel like I have to explain myself to everyone and it drives me nuts. I’m plenty busy thank you very much, and I don’t like feeling like I have to justify my lifestyle. Lately I’ve been answering with freelance writer and that seems to shut them up.
4.) What’s the last thing you broke?
Are we talking about inanimate objects or body parts here? 😉 I’m a klutz so I drop a lot of stuff. The last thing I broke was one of our brand new wedding plates but I superglued that badboy back together! Last bone I broke was my wrist in the 1st grade. With my klutziness, that’s pretty impressive I must say.
5.) Finish this sentence. I can’t believe I used to ________.
Smoke! Bleck. It is so disgusting but for some dumb reason I was really into it. I blame it on Oregon. It seems to be the favorite pasttime for many of my home town friends. I am so glad I kicked that habit in a hot hurry when I moved to California. I had a date tell me I really stunk, and I was so embarrassed! Quit pretty quickly after that.
