A Game of Tag

My friend, Amanda, might be the cutest little pregnant girl ever.

Seriously, she's stinkin' cute, can probably -- wait, TOTALLY -- outrun me (even at 8 months preggo -- holy shit, 8 months, really?), and happens to be one of the funniest people I know.

If I didn't already have so much time invested (and, honestly, if she wasn't about to pop out a brand new baby for me to obsessively love and hold), I would completely hate her. But you shouldn't hate her 'cause, like I said before, she's wickedly, awesomely funny. And you should check out her blog here, in fact.

So she tagged me with this silly, little questionnaire and because I think she's just so darned adorable, I simply cannot ignore her request. Plus, like I said, she runs fast, and I cannot avoid her tag nor will I ever be able to really tag her back.

Here we go!

1. Favorite Color: Yellow. It's the sun. It's my hair (or was my hair until reality and old age set in). It's warm. It's positive. It reminds me of lemonade and giggles. It's all the things I strive to be/have in my life, but sometimes lose sight of. Except the lemonade. I always have lemonade in my fridge.

2. Favorite Brand/ Designer: Ummm... I'm not exactly a style guru, so I'd probably say Adidas. If I were a cracked out, anorexic model/celebrity, I'd say Christian Siriano. 'Cause he's FIERCE. And I love his tranny ass.

3. Favorite Restaurant: Chik-Fil-A. Surprising, huh? It changes often, but overall, it's my favorite fast food because the chicken is delicious, and I can get a fruit cup and convince myself that it's "healthy" because, as we all know, fruit cup = an additional 37 days to your life span.

4.Hobbies: Reading, movies, camp, reality t.v. and then mocking reality t.v., and exaggerating to prove a point about a subject on which I know very little. Seriously, I hope you didn't just buy that bit about the fruit cup. I have done no research, it's just a hopeful estimation that I tell myself when I swing by CFA.

5.Favorite thing about yourself: I have been told that I make others feel good about themselves. And that I'm nice. I used to think that "nice" was just a polite synonym for "nothin' special", but as I've grown up, I've decided that the world just needs more "nice". I'm not super religious, but I believe in the Church of Just Being a Nice Person. Of course, being tacky is way more fun than nice, and sometimes tacky wins out. Then people snicker at my tackiness, and that gives me an evil little jolt of delight.

6.What does your room look like? A hot mess.

7.If you could have dinner with 2 people (dead or alive) who would they be? I hate this question. There are millions of people I'd like to have dinner with, but if they're dead, what's the point? My biggest question would be somthing along the lines of, "What's it like to be dead?" But then I worry that Shakespeare or Hitler or whoever would be all, "Eh" (with a nonchalant shoulder shrug and bum everybody out). And who wants that at a dinner party that you have LITERALLY moved Heaven and Hell to host? So, in truth, probably just my best buds at Joe T's with a couple of margaritas and lots of laughs. My friends are never just "Eh" and none of us are good at nonchalance.

8.What's your next "big splurge"? My super-secret goal... or I guess not-so-secret goal now -- is to buy a house within the next year or so. But it makes me have rumbly in the tumbly just to think of it, so I'm going to stop that talk and just breathe for a minute. Literally. Give me a minute.

9.What's your favorite joke, quote or saying?: I'm sorry, but I must steal Amanda's answer on this one. And I quote, "If you know me, you know I cannot tell jokes because I don't remember all of the lines." This is so classically me. Or even if I remember the lines, I get sidetracked in the telling of it because something reminds me of this other time when this happened.... and so on and so forth until the listener either walks away or finishes the joke for me. My newest favorite quote is by Judy Garland. "It's better to be a first-rate version of yourself rather than a second-rate version of someone else."

10.Anything else you would like us to know about you (random fact)?!: Amanda can lick her armpit, and that totally sicks me out, but I can pinch you with my toes. Seriously, I have monkey toes that almost serve as fingers. It's weird, but my pedicure ladies love them because I have "great nail beds". Umm... thanks? I know they're just making conversation, but it doesn't make me feel that great. No cute boy has ever complimented my "great nail beds", and, honestly, if he did, he's not the boy for me.

So there you have it. Ten questions you probably didn't want to know the answers to and a good 180 seconds (300 if you're a careful reader) you'll never get back. So, it's my turn to tag someone, and I tag...

Musings from Suburbia

and YOU! Feel free to post in the comments or on your own blog if you have one!


  1. I bet Christian Seriano would compliment your nailbeds. We discussed your monkey toes this past weekend :) Ben has them too. Maybe Griffin will get this trait from the 2 of you. So many things to teach him. And isn't it, technically, PEENCH?

  2. It is PEENCH.

    And I think monkey toes are a dominant trait, but I'm no genetics expert.
