8 questions...

I just got tagged by TinaM to answer 8 questions.  Then I'm supposed to make up my own 8 and ask people to answer those on their own blog.  I love doing these (ask my friend StarMom), so here goes:

1. What pets do you have?
Sophie the cat, aka "The Beast".  She is getting a haircut tomorrow, and if I can find the charger for my camera I'll take a picture and post it for you to see.

2. What is your favorite color?
Blue.  When I was little, I would always say "rainbow" so that none of the color's feelings would be hurt (am I a Libra or what?!)

3. What TV show are you addicted too?
I hate to jump on the vampire bandwagon, but I heart True Blood.  It's the reason I kept cable. 

4. How tall are you?
5'5" (ish--I'm actually 5'4.5", but I figure I should round up).  In fact, whenever my Mother asks me "What are you up to?"  my answer is always, "5'5".

5. Have you ever got a speeding ticket? How many!
Yup.  The first one I ever got was on my way to church (which the cop didn't believe--duh, where else am I going in a fancy dress on a Sunday morning?).  He literally jumped in front of my car to stop me, and then asked me if I knew how fast I was going.  Luckily, I stopped myself before saying, "Is that before or after my friend yelled, 'COP!' at me?

6. If you could wave a magic wand, what one thing would you change about yourself instantly? (physical or otherwise)
I would like to be able to try out different looks.  I think it would be fun to be a very petite teeny lady one day, and then switch it up to be an athletic 6' tall Gabrielle Reese type.  I'd even want to try being a boy for a day (and I'd totally write my name in the snow).  I would just want to switch it up all the time, again with the typical Libra.  I think it would be fascinating to see life through many different eyes.

7.What one thing do you love about yourself, and wouldn't change? (physical or otherwise)
My sense of humor, hands down.

8. How long do you think you will keep up your blog? forever?
Ah, Miss M.  Nothing lasts forever.

I do not even know how to tag 8 other people.  Is it OK if I ask you to comment on this one with your answers to my 8 questions?  Here they are:

1.  What did you want to be when you grew up?  Why did or didn't you become that person?

2.  What is your favorite holiday of the year and why?

3.  Favorite ice cream flavor?

4.  What is the biggest lie you told as a child?

5.  Have you even gone skinny dipping?

6.  Do you have a particular scent that is nostalgic/brings back a memory or moment for you?

7.  Dogs, cats, or both?

8.  What gets you out of bed in the morning?

Please feel free to answer in the comments, or let me know to check out your answers on your blog.  Thanks, TinaM!  This was fun!!


  1. Thanks for answering Babe!!! You are so funny, you always make me smile. Love the cop one :) K, here's my answers:

    1. i wanted to be a veterinarian. Loved animals way more than people... still true haha. There are things in my life that made it harder... but really they aren't good excuses. I could have went to collage and all that if I was willing to put in the extra work to do it...

    2. Christmas, watching my son open his presents.

    3. French Silk (Edy's) or mint chocolate chip!

    4. I know it sounds crazy, but I didn't lie... haha! I mean, I'm sure I did... but I really don't remember lying about anything! As a teenager my Mom didn't give a sh*t so we did what we wanted, didn't have to lie! lol.

    5. No... have you???? Tell us!!!! :)

    6. YES! It's a cologne, I don't know what brand. Ray says it must be Micheal Jordan, or CK... Once every 2 years or so I will smell it on some one in a store or something... it's what Ray used to wear when we were teenagers. It really takes me back!

    7. I like both. I guess I'm a cat person because we aren't aloud to have dogs where I live (or when I was a kid).

    8. the alarm on my phone haha.
    The reason I get out of bed is because I know my son and fiance need me. :) (I swear they are helpless! LOL)

  2. I do not have a blogg of my own, so I thought I would answer the questions here as well. I loved your answers, I would not give up your sense of humor either (or we would have to stop being friends=).

    1. In the beginning I wanted to be an Astronaut, then 2 things happened...1. Someone told me how much math was involved in that job and 2. The Challenger exploded on TV while I was watching...that ended that idea for me right there!

    2. I love Halloween and Christmas equally, but for two totally different reasons=)

    3. KarmelSutra by Ben & Jerrys, there is a reason that it sounds like a sexual experience...because it truly is!

    4. So many, it is hard to narrow down...I was a perfect child, but also a very good liar=) I did carve something into our family car and then told my parents my Brother did it. But being the smart kid I was, I carved my Brother's name into the car and not my own, so it was easier to blame know, there is pure evil running running in my viens, just under my porcelin exterior=).

    5. Not that I can remember, but that sounds like an event I would do when I was really drunk, so who knows...

    6. Any freshly baked pie smell reminds me of my Grandma.

    7. I am a dog person all the way (2 beasts at home right now). But I do enjoy a cat now and then...insert Sophie here!

    8. My dogs for sure. One will sit by the edge of the bed and make sad noises and the other one will jump on my head and lick me until I wake up!
