Let's Play Tag...8 Questions

I was tagged in this fun 8 questions game by Krystal @ Krystal's Kitsch.

So the way this goes is I answer her 8 questions, then I make up 8 of my own & tag 8 awesome bloggers to answer them.

Let the fun begin...

1. If you could live anywhere, where would you move to?
Probably Alaska or Idaho...somewhere where I could buy lots of land. Growing up I would always tell my dad how I was going to grow up & buy a farm with lots of land. Little did I know there aren't too many farms or much land to buy in the city lol.

2. What is the best thing to happen to you this year so far?
There have been a lot of little things but nothing that really stands out. I guess I could say the best thing is that I'm still happily married.

3. Do you read a newspaper daily?
Nope. I actually haven't held a newspaper in my hand in years. I think technology has sort of made newspaper obsolete. Sometimes I scan through the top news stories online on CNN or Yahoo but that's about it.

I've never sold anything on ebay but the last thing I bought was a cell phone. I really wanted a touch screen phone so I bought a refurbished one off an ebay store. It worked really well until I realized having an old ass touchscreen phone isn't as cool as the new ones lol.

5. What would we find if we googled you?
Nothing. I've actually checked. Well...you might find my facebook account but that's using my real name which most of you dont know & I think it's like on the 4th page or something.

6. Do you frequent any forums? What topics?
Yep. I usually tend to comment on the IMDB forums since I'm a movie fiend & I've recently joined the SITS forums. It's pretty time consuming though so I don't join the discussions very often.

Nope. I can honestly say I've never bought any clothing online for myself. I bought a pair of socks & a shirt for Rusty online when we were first dating but that was a long time ago. I've never trusted buying clothes online since I have a hard enough time finding clothing that fits correctly in person. What I hate is that sizes always vary, sometimes my jeans are a 13 & then sometimes their an 11...shirts are a large but sometimes an XL. It's so frustrating!

8. What is a weekly ritual for you?
Other than getting up before the sun, taking a shower, brushing my teeth, carpooling & working 4 out of the 7 days of the week I don't think I have one. Oh that's a lie...I usually tend to check twitter & my email before bed & when I wake up. Yes, I'm that much of a loser.

I'm so cool I got tagged twice! E over @ The Perkster was nice enough to choose me to answer her 8 questions too...

1. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
Same answer as above...

2. What is your all time favorite picture of you and can we see it?
It's probably the photo of Rusty & I kissing in front of a fountain outside of the wedding chapel after getting married. We decided on a really small wedding in Las Vegas & didnt even think about hiring a photographer but luckily my annoying aunt took lots of photos of us. I remember she bitched for us to kiss in the photo & after finally giving in to shut her up it turned out to be my favorite. And...no you cannot see it because if I posted it then my super secret identity would be revealed ;)

3. What is one thing you know you should throw away but probably never will?
Old photos of myself with friends & old boyfriends as a teenager. They dont mean anything to me & they take up space but there's just something about having them around incase I ever get the need for a little nastalgia.

4. What is one of your biggest regrets? (yeah I know, everything happens for a reason, but still what is something you wish you had done differently?)
Not taking high school more seriously. I went to class when I wanted & didnt care whether or not I did the work because I knew I'd graduate one way or another. I wish I would have paid more attention because then I probably could have gotten a scholarship to a 4 yr college instead of wasting my time in community college.

5. What was your first IM/Screen Name/Email account name and why did you pick it? (I really hope it was something completely cheesy!)
Sorry to let you down E but it wasnt anything too cheesy. It was Ginger7714. I'm a big Ginger Rogers & Fred Astaire fan so that's where ginger comes in & 7714 was just my area code with an extra 7 added to it. Nothing special, just a little lame.

6. What is the oddest inanimate object you have been caught talking to?
I dont think I've ever talked to anything before but I have yelled & cursed at several. It's ranged from my computer (of course), a pen (no ink), cell phone (no signal), car (for not starting), vacuum (stubbed my toe on it), traffic (for being slow), coffee (being too hot)...you get the point. And yes, I may or may not have anger issues.

7. What thought or message would you put in a fortune cookie?
You're life's going to suck sometimes, learn to deal with it.

8. Why did you start blogging?

I was bored & needed to vent, a therapist costs too much moola. I wish I could say that I have lots of friends but the truth is I dont. I have Rusty (which I'm totally happy with). But with all the crap I vent about his head was bound to explode at some point or he was going to sew my mouth shut so I decided to put it out there for the world to enjoy or hate...either one.

Now it's time for these ladies to answer some questions:

1. If you could have any job, in any industry, what would it be?

2. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

3. What's the best vacation you've ever been on?

4. If you could meet anyone, dead or alive, who would it be?

5. What is you're favorite movie & why?

6. What is your favorite alcoholic beverage?

7. What's on your Christmas wish list?

8. If you had 1 million dollars what would you do with it?



  1. I enjoyed reading your answers. :)

  2. Thanks for the tag girl! I already went and answered your questions! I didn't tag though- its been a long couple of days. I'll get there though haha!

    oh and yelling at inanimate objects? I totally do the same thing- i also yell at my hair, anything in my way when I'm sleepy, dirt that won't go in the dust pan no matter what I do and my stupid short sofa. Your not alone!

  3. This blog reflects a very spunky, fun personality, and it's great! Very vibrant! I, too, enjoyed reading your answers, and am now a subscriber and know I will enjoy what's to come. Can't believe I didn't come across your blog sooner!

  4. Alaska (or maybe Maine) would be my choice as well. So much wilderness!

    (stopping by from SITS!)

  5. Ooh, this will be fun! I love your answers, but I'm a little disappointed we don't get to see a picture! Come on, humor those of us on the other side of the U.S. :)
