Ahem...Me me me meme!

I was tagged by Aimee, beautiful, lovely Aimee. So here we go.

Welcome to the new 2009 edition of getting to know your family and friends. Here is what you are supposed to do, and try not to be lame and spoil the fun. Change all the answers so that they apply to you. Then send this to a bunch of people you know, INCLUDING the person who sent it to you.

1. What is your occupation right now?
I'm a cook, a stylist, a cosmetologist, a therapist, a housekeeper, a teacher, a lover, a seamstress, a singer, a potty trainer, an actor, a personal assistant, a lactation pro, a best friend, and a Mommy.

2. What color are your socks right now?
Socks?! We don't need no stinkin' socks! Hence the beautifully thick and scratchy calloused hooves I call tootsies.

3. What are you listening to right now?
Ah the sweet, sweet sounds of nature that are coming in from my open window... and being drowned out by a crying baby and some animated movie that has become my son's new favorite...for the week.

4. What was the last thing you ate?
A couple of sugar cookies. I am the epitome of health and nutrition right here.

5. Can you drive stick shift?
Oh no, no no no no no no. I tried a couple times and didn't make it out of my parent's driveway. No no, not for me.

6. Last person you talked to on the phone?
Erm, my Mom? No, no wait. My SIL who is days overdue with child. I called to see if I could speed up the process for her, you know, by scaring the kid right out of her with all my gory birth stories. Yeah, I'm cool like that.

7. How old are you today?
Ahem, I feel this question is totally inappropriate and refuse to answer on he grounds that it is none of your dang business and I'd ask you to kindly butt out thank you!

8. What is your favorite sport to watch?
Well, you see, I'm not a sports watchin' kind of gal. I'll go to a soccer game to appease the handsome hubby once in a while and I admit, I get downright violent over the Super Bowl, but other than that, I tend to stick to watching PBS and Friends. You know, good quality programming...

9. What is your favorite drink?
I LOVE Dr Pepper. I do not drink it, however, very often. Almost never in fact. Only on rare and dire circumstances do I let myself indulge. Mainly I kick it old school and drink water, ice water. Freakin frigid ridiculously cold ice water. And lots of it. I am, ahem, drinking for two, so to speak...

10. Have you ever dyed your hair?
Oh silly naive little survey. You obviously don't know me a all do you? It's not your fault, little survey. I know you probably ask everyone the same thing, am I right? It's just that if you only knew the extent at which my follicles have been graced by the tinting process, dear survey, you would not only not ask if I have ever done it, but you wouldn't call it dye. For you see, it is a big ol' can of worms that I just don't think you want to open or even get near. So, dear darling survey, I'll just say yes and move on.

11. Favorite food?
I have a love affair with food these days. So much so, in fact, that my handsome hubby is getting jealous. I love pizza, I love homemade macaroni and cheese, I love chicken and rice, I love tuna casserole, I love creamy chicken enchiladas, I love Cafe Rio's chicken salads and burritos, I love Taco Johns' Taco Bravo, I love Arby's Turkey Bacon Ranch Sandwich, I love Noodles and Company Mac n' Cheese, I love Village Baker, I love chili dogs, I love a big ol' bowl of cereal, I love graham crackers and milk, I love Subway's Cold Cut Trio, I love Sweet Coconutty Chex Mix, I love brownies, better yet, brownies with Ice Cream and Leatherby's Hot Fudge. That, I believe, covers it.

12. Last movie you watched?
The last movie I watched for me or for Izacc? Because we have been watching Bee Movie and Curious George like they're going out of style round these parts. But I just watched 17 Again and, um, I hate to say it but that little Zac Efron is a cutie. Does that make me a cougar? Because I don't know how old he is, but I certianly know how old I am and yikes. Let's just not. Next.

13. Favorite day of the year?
"Hmm, that's a tough one. I would have to say April 25th because it's not too hot, not too cold. All you need is a light jacket." (name the movie)

14. How do you vent anger?
Oh, you know, the regular facets. I scream, I yell, I throw things. Depending on who I am with and the level of my frustration, of course.

15. Favorite toy as a child?
I had a Pink Hugga Bunch named Huggins who had a baby named, uh, Hug-a-bye I think, who I loved dearly. I also had Mop Tops, that Play Doh toy where they grew hair and you could "cut" it, which I coveted for years before finally getting them. I can remember one time I had a dream that I was playing with them and woke up and cried because they weren't real. Traumatic. Maybe that's why I went to Beauty school. Repressed Mop Tops longings.

16. Favorite season?
I love Spring for the simple fact that the days get longer and things look clean again. Everything smells so good and it just has a sort of feeling. Stupid winter and fall ruin my life.

17. Cherries or Blueberries?
Blueberries hands down.

18. Living situation?
Well, I am currently shacked up with three boys in Riverton, Wyoming, two of which have a fond affinity to my chest area, for different reasons of course, and one has a bladder control problem. It's a rock stars life, I tell ya.

19. When was the last time you cried?
Yesterday? Probably...

20. What's on the floor of your closet?
Good golly who the heck knows. I do know that there are shoes in there, somewhere. And a box and some pillows and yikes I just don't even know.

21. What did you do last night?
Last night I didn't do jack crap! It was phenomenal. Wish you were there.

22. What are you most afraid of?
Bears, beets, Battlestar Galactica. No for real, well, I've got two. Earwigs and outhouses. Earwigs because they are gross and nasty and invasive and fugly and I hate them with every fiber of my being. It's a LONG story and is deep rooted into my psyche. Let's just say that if I were a Super Hero, my arch Nemesis would be Earwig Man. 'DEATH TO EARWIG MAN!' I would exclaim as I served my vigilante justice through the town, all the while hiding my true identity, and ultimately bringing down the evil that is Earwig man and his minions. Yeah, it would be great. Oh, and outhouses. It's a full blown phobia according to the very definition, which is is an irrational, intense, persistent fear of certain situations, activities, things, or people, with the excessive, unreasonable desire to avoid the feared subject, often beyond one's control. I don't know what it stems from, perhaps a trip to Yellowstone when I was very young. I.can.not.use.an.outhouse.without.assistance. No joke. Handsome Hubby found this little gem out two days after we were married. Let's just say he saw a whole new, ahem, side of me. It starts as soon as I close the door. I sweat and shake and cry and I KNOW KNOW KNOW it's stupid and doesn't make any sense, but I can't even look at the things. It's not exactly Claustrophobia, because I don't have a problem with other small, tight spaces. It's, I don't even know. I have to make sure the lid is closed, then I close my eyes and back up to it until it touches my leg. Then I, erm, do my bidnaz and get the heck out, after closing the lid of course. And Handsome Hubby has to be close by, as in real close. Whatever, don't judge me. You know you're crazy too.

23. Plain, cheese, or spicy hamburgers?
Spicy hamburgers? What the crap is a spicy hamburger exactly? Nice. I am a plain hamburger kind of girl, always have been, always will be. There is NOTHING like a McDonalds Hamburger, plain. One year, for my birthday, all I wanted was 2 hamburgers from McDonalds. I got off work around 9pm and then Handsome Hubby drove me to the McDonalds drive-thru, where I promptly ordered 2 hamburgers, plain. We got home, I went to eat them and to my utter disappointment, they were not plain. No no, full of ketchup and pickles and who knows what else. The tears came and, well, to make a long story short, Handsome Hubby drove across town back to McDonalds to exchange the two tainted burgers for their plain counterparts. The moral of the story here is ALWAYS check your food when you go through the drive-thru. Wait, what was the question again?

24. Favorite day of the week?
My favorite day of the week happens to be any day that Handsome Hubby doesn't have to work at night. Yes, we likes us some fatherly figure around here.

25. How many states have you lived in?
Er, two. Lame.

26. Diamonds or pearls?
Well I think that should totally depend on the occasion, don't you? I mean, I love my wedding ring, but it's got diamonds and I think it would look pretty silly with pearls. However, I think I would look a bit gaudy and over dramatic if I were to wear a diamond necklace with my khaki skirt and blouse on Sunday. Well, maybe on second thought... no I'm stickin' with the right tool for the right job. Yes. A tiara would just be horribly inappropriate, right? Right?

27. Favorite flower?
I just love daisies. Most all kinds of daisies. Remember that, there may be a quiz later.

So there ya go. All you could ever possibly want to know about me, maybe a little TMI, who's to say. ANYWAY, who's next? Come on, do it! You know you want to!!!
