I thought I would be able to just pick up right where I left off, but I have had the hardest time thinking about what I would write about. I started off thinking I would use one of my favorite things, the blog meme. But then I thought, no, Sus, you do those too much. Then I thought, maybe I could ask people to submit questions for me to answer as a way to catch up. Again, I thought, Sus, how the hell is that any different from doing a blog meme? You are still just answering a list of questions.
And then it came to me! Why don’t I just say, “Fuck it!” and do both! That’s just how I roll. When I cop out, I cop out big. I’m not one to half ass my laziness. I go all the way….or something like that.
On to the meme!
What was your favorite food when you were a child? Same thing it is now. Spaghetti. Love it!
What’s the #1 most played song on your iPod? Firework by Katy Perry.
This is mostly Ollie’s doing. He loves this song and insists we listen to it every time we get in the car to go somewhere. When the song ends he announces from his carseat, “Mommy, that was a great song!”
What is one of your favorite quotes? Currently, the quote comes from my husband. It was said while he was flipping through the program of our niece’s school play.
“Which one of these pages tell me when we can get the fuck out of here.”
What’s your favorite indoor/outdoor activity?
Well first, I like to be indoors, and then I like to go outdoors. Then I go back in, and then back out. And then back in again. It’s kind of like being a clownfish.
What chore do you absolutely hate doing? Vacuuming. Hands down. No question.
What is your favorite form of exercise? The kind that only takes 20 minutes.
What is your favorite time of day/day of the week/month of the year?
9:00AM – I have usually showered by that time and am ready to take on the day.
Thursday – This is the day I go have coffee and hang out with the girls. LOVE LOVE LOVE it! I would probably lose my mind without this time with them. And Ollie loves to play with their kids, as well, so it is a win win all around.
August – It’s my birthday and anniversary month. Need I say more?
What’s your least favorite mode of transportation? Piggyback ride.
What is your favorite body part? My middle finger. At least that is what I am guessing, since I like to show it off so much.
What sound do you love? Ollie’s hysterical laughter.
Which celebrity do you get mistaken for? I live in a town where no celebrity would ever be. So by that fact alone, I am never mistaken for anyone. Sometimes, not even for myself.
What do you want to be when you grow up? An artist.
When you have 30 minutes of free-time, how do you pass the time? I paint, read, clean, and nap. Yes that is all in the same 30 minutes.
What would you name the autobiography of your life? “Shazaam, Shazaam, Shazaam! But That Ain’t My Finger!”
What songs are included on the soundtrack to your life? So many to choose but we will just stick with four for now.
Personal History Questions
Have you ever had something happen to you that you thought was bad but it turned out to be for the best? Absolutely. Losing my job. I could never have guessed how precious this time with Ollie would be.
What was one of the best parties you’ve ever been to? Girl, all the parties I go to are amazing.
What was the last movie, TV show or book that made you cry or tear up?
Movie – Garden State.
TV Show – Chopped, on the Food Network. Damn onions.
Book – Incendiary by Chris Cleave. Incredible.
What’s the hardest thing you’ve ever done? Not slapped the employee at the Hot Dog on a Stick counter.
*Interesting side note: Has anyone ever seen a male Hot Dog on a Stick employee? I never have and frankly, don’t want to. Could you imagine a guy in those little nasty blue polyester shorts they have to wear? Gaaaww. Gives me the creeps. Plus the lemonade making wouldn’t be nearly as hot.*
What was the last experience that made you a stronger person? Having a kid. Definitely.
What did you do growing up that got you into trouble? Mouthed off. Of all the times I can remember getting into trouble, it is because I had some snide little remark to add, under my breath.
When was the last time you had an amazing meal? April 2009 in Las Vegas at Morton’s The Steakhouse.
What do you miss most about being a kid? Midnight runs to the 7-11. I know I can do that now, but it’s just not the same.
What is your first memory of being really excited? Going to Disneyland for the first time with my family.
What was the first thing you bought with your own money? Bad by Michael Jackson on cassette, thank you very much! (I am assuming they are looking for something substantial. Otherwise the answer would be candy.)
When was the last time you were nervous? I don’t even remember. I am sure it was something recent, but it must not have been that big of a deal since I can’t recall what it was.
What is something you learned in the last week? How much wood a woodchuck would chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood.
What story does your family always tell about you? The time a hippo shit on me at the zoo. Apparently this gem is going in the annals of our family history.
At what age did you become an adult?
I’ll get back to you on that one.
Now it’s your turn!
Anything you have been wondering about? Have a burning question you would like to get off your chest? Post it in the comments and I will answer these next Monday.
In the meantime, I will try really hard to post something meaningful and life changing.
