And You Are...? LATE

And Sorry, and Lame and did I mention sorry?
I signed up for this great blog hop back in November thinking that December was a very distant shore. Then I slammed into December at full speed. Yikes! 

So without further ado, here is my (belated) entry into the And You Are...? Blog Hop. Please visit these other lovely peeps listed below and give them some warm and fuzzies too.
this blog hop is brought to you by Tammy Theriault and Emil y R. King, who's reward will be great in heaven, or will soon get lots of candy canes (one or the other.) Thanks, girls, for putting this together. 

How many speeding tickets have you gotten?

One. it was for going 40 in a 25 Mile Zone, right outside of the Lincoln Tunnel on my way into a club at around midnight. It was almost 20 years ago but I remember it clearly because it was So. Unfair.
Can you pitch a tent?
Never tried, but I'm going with, yeah sure, how hard can it be?*
*famous last words...
What was your worst vacation ever?
I don't think it was that bad, but I had a less than awesome time when my husband and I went to Aruba. Not maligning Aruba, but they have this weird thing where the wind is constantly blowing - constantly and in the same direction. It makes the trees bend permenantly in one direction. Also, it was so humid that the sheets on the bed felt damp all the time. I don't think I'm a beachy kind of girl in retrospect.
What was the last thing you bought over $100?
Kindle Fire - Merry Christmas to me!
We’re handing you the keys to what?
A secret. Don't tell me what it is, I want to unlock it myself.
What was the last meal cooked that made even you sick?
I made a weird chicken leg thing from a recipe in a slow cooker cookbook that I was dubious about. The recipe said it was Delicious! Her family LOVED it! I followed the directions to the letter and when the legs came out of the cooker they smelled - strange. Plasticky. I served it to my fam with a smile but one bite in, I said FORGET IT! and ordered Pizza. Beware the slow cooker....
Fill in the blank: Oh my gosh! Becky, look at her butt! It is so big. She looks like _____?
she's got two ferrets in her pants, fighting for supremacy!
What was your first car?
Mazda Protoge. Stick Shift. LOVED THAT CAR.
Your best friend falls and gets hurt. Do you ask if she’s okay or laugh first?
Ok, Am I drunk? If I am drunk and do not get the hurt part right away, I might giggle. But being a mom, if someone is hurt, I slap on my serious nurse face pretty quickly.
What’s the worst song ever?
That Brian Adams song from the Robin Hood Movie. I remember when it came out I couldn't figure out the chorus. Or the verse. It was just this maudlin mish-mosh of notes. For some reason, though there are worse and more egregious songs out there, this one always sticks out for me as a mess.

  1. Ha! Come back when you've pitched that thing. lol. And I loved that song. =) I'm always looking for recipes for my slow cooker. Gotta watch out for that one. =)

    1. I know, I'm inviting disaster when I say 'how hard can it be?' to pitch a tent. but that's what I always do, throw myself head long into projects thinking I can do it and only realizing how hard it is about half way in! And it's SO FUNNY how subjective the song thing is in this blog hop - I've found fave songs on others blog's worst list - no accounting for taste ;)

  2. omg i heart you times a million. "she's got two ferrets in her pants, fighting for supremacy!" i am STILL lol'ing over that one :)

    1. yes, but imagine the horror of a three-way ferret fight for supremacy - that would be something to pay per view ;)

  3. Better late than never:) I'm glad you still posted. I love manual transmissions too (unfortunately they don't come in minivan) And the ferrets had me giggling..

  4. Hey Alex!! Oh Aruba! Home of the square coins. I always thought that was cool. And yay for kindle fire! Just got won myself and it's so purty!
    And thanks so much for your warm wishes on my blog and for believing in The Desiree! I appreciate that sooo much!! ((hugs))

  5. At last, someone who picked a "worse song" other than Friday (while I agree it's hard to listen to, there are other picks out there.)

    I gave you a Shout-Out on my blog today. :)

  6. oh no, the slow cooker, I've always been wary of them. Better late than never joining the hop -- I enjoyed your answers!
