Leanne, The Jerk, and long flowing stuff

>> Thursday, September 2, 2010

When my wonderful friend Leanne @ from chaos comes happiness“Tagged” me on her blog I could not refuse her, its not that I'm to cool for "Tags" I never seem to have the time for them, but I'll make time her.
Leanne is awesome in so many ways, I love reading her blog because she is always true to herself and full of life, she is also very talented. I was lucky enough to have had her design my blog header and it makes me smile every time I see it.  If you are looking for some great design work or something amazing to read go check her out.

So here we go… the following questions were given to me by Leanne, they are fun and deep, just like her.

1. What is your all-time favorite movie (the one that you can watch over and over, when just hearing it in the back ground is enough to imagine exactly what is happening on the screen)?

I love anything Steve Marten, from “the Jerk” to “Cheaper by the dozen” you can’t go wrong with Steve, he makes water squirt out of my eyes.

2. Tell me about one Halloween costume you remember wearing as a child.

Growing up we never had much money and we moved around a lot. I often went as a gypsy woman, I’d wear my mom’s long flowing skirts and peasant top with big hoop ear rings lots and lots of bangle bracelets, my mom would tie my long hair back with scarves. It was fitting really, being a gypsy woman, since I never lived in one place long enough to go to the same school for a full year.

3. Why did you start blogging?

Being that I  love to make others laugh even by making fun of myself, I offten say silly dumb stuff on my FaceBook status, one day my friend Mary commented “you always crack me up, you should have a blog”. Well I never really thought about it…but I looked into it and here I am. I enjoy it much more than I ever thought I would.

4. What makes you happy?

'Oh my…. When my husband gropes me in the kitchen and call me his honey muffin, that makes me happy. It makes me happy that my kids Love when I read to them. Ice cream makes me happy. Blog comments make me really Happy.

5. If you were able to go back in time, where would you go and why?

I’d like to visit the renaissance times, live as the women did back then, with the long gowns, hooded cloaks, flowing hair and were treated like woman should be treated….Like a Goddess. Yeah I’d like to ride through the forest on my big white stallion with my large bosoms busting out of my corset…oh sorry forgot where I was for a min.

6. What was the last thing you bought at the grocery store?

This morning the only way to get the kids out of the house and take a walk with me was to bribe them with doughnuts…we walked to the grocery store and bought 6 doughnuts, 4 chocolate milks and a Starbucks (the true reason for the walk)

7. How do you take your coffee? (If you don’t drink coffee … wait, let me get a handle on that … YOU DON’T DRINK COFFEE??? Ok, if you don’t drink coffee, then what is your favorite beverage?)

I like my coffee every morning with Carnation vanilla nut creamer….yummy.

8. Brag a little . . . tell me about a recent RAK (random act of kindness) that you took part in.

Huh? You are killing me here! Let’s see, I always try to do a little RAK, holding doors open, sharing a smile, teaching my kids kindness. I guess the last thing I did was pick up (instead of steeping over it like everyone else) someone’s Visa card off the floor of Wal-Mart and turned it in to customer service, because that’s what I would of wanted someone to do if I dropped my credit card on the floor of Wal-Mart.

This was fun, thanks Leanne!  Now I am going to be lame, because I’ve run out of time, and not forward the “Tag”.

Your welcome.

P.S. I hate coffee. Blecch.

Hum, sounds like we have a lot in common. I dressed as a gypsy many times growning up too. Mainly because my parents were too cheap to buy us anything for one night use. I too love comments and coffee. but I really don't like being grop by my hubby in the kitchen. Just because he only gropes me when he wants it to lead to something more. If I am in the kitchen, I don't have time for more..

Yeah, I'm not sure if I'm a fan of this "tag" game either, but I love reading answers to questions that taggers provide. I enjoyed getting to know more about you (and I chucked about the groper in your life!) :)

Promise me doughnuts and I'd walk anywhere with you!

Loved your answers!

I started blogging because of Facebook, too! Well, partly, anyway. Statuses are just right for one liners!
Mmmmm...doughnuts and coffee...

Leanne September 3, 2010 at 11:07 AM  

I have to say that I LOVE people who play along with this silly game - and I kind of feel like my request of "tag" was purely selfish - because I really wanted to know all of these things about you! You are the best and I'm so glad to know you!

Leanne September 3, 2010 at 7:39 PM  

You know ... I've been thinking about this all day (I was bored today) ... your post title is "Leanne [comma] The Jerk [comma] and long flowing stuff". I must ask ... am I the jerk with long flowing stuff?
