Friend Makin' Monday

It's Monday, so what does that mean?? It's Friend Makin' Monday! Go to Kasey's blog and check it out. She is so stinkin' cute and I wish I could copy her background. I love this and have met some great people over in Bloggy Land.

Here are today's questions to answer:

You wouldn't be caught dead where?: Easy...a nudist colony!

Do you have any hidden talents?: Not sure I call this a talent, but I can move my eyebrows up and down separately. It is funny to see other people try it because most cannot do each one individually. I know you just tried it after reading this. :)

Name two things you consider yourself to be very good at: directions (don't be hatin'!) and making people laugh

Name two things you consider yourself to be very bad at: keeping my kitchen bar clear of clutter and singing

Have you ever won a trophy?: Yes! Lots of 'em in sports when I was a young'un.

Name one thing not many people know about you: Gosh, I am an open book so this is a tough one. OH! Maybe that as talkative as I am, I used to be almost completely mute in school when I was young. My mom had to coach me into even saying Good Morning to my teacher when I got to school. I didn't even like to say "here" when it was roll call. I know, shocking if you know me now.

Name your earliest memory: being at the first house I lived in and looking out the back door to see my sister playing.

What was your favorite musical group in jr. high?: INXS and the start of my love for U2

What was something the worst roommate you ever had did?: Oh gosh, way too many things to list. Maybe my first roommate in college that listened to my phone conversations. Seriously, she did. She insisted on having our own phones in the tiny dorm room. Now I know why! Then it would have to be at UNT in my apartment when Jane Doe (I am respecting her privacy :) ) and her sister that lived with us intermittently got in a huge fight because Jane Doe insisted on mothering her sister. She came home drunk and Jane Doe just was tired of it or was jealous of the fact that her sister had a life (sorry, I'm still bitter over her) and they came in my room yelling and screaming. I tried to be the referee and then one of them shoved the other into my shelf which had a special porcelain figurine from my deceased Grandmother and it broke. I was just beside myself with anger, hurt, frustration, etc. Needless to say, I did not want to live with them when our lease was up!

When you were a kid what did you want to be when you grew up?: An architect

What was your worst dating experience?: Other than the horrible blind date that my friend set me up on with her cousin (just awful), it would have to be my Senior year in high school. A guy I knew from school that was a year ahead of me was home from college over Christmas break. We were always great friends and I had a crush on him. He told my friend Keith that he wanted to go out with me. I was floored. We went out and there was ZERO chemistry. I mean ZERO. We were definitely better off as friends. He brought me home and kissed me. ZERO sparks. Fast forward to the end of our Christmas break and back at school...come to find out there were two friends in my class that had a "friends with benefits" relationship with said date-man. They found out about me going out with him and were not too happy. One threatened to "beat me up". Yeah, so high school cliche'. They confronted me in the hall and started to interrogate me about it. I finally just said "look, it is obvious you both are mad that he bought me dinner, which it is clear he has never done for you" They were both speechless. That is probably the only time I ever had a good comeback like that.

If you were about to die what would your last meal be?: A toss up between my husband's grilled steak or my mom's fried chicken.

Who is the most important person in you life?: Other than my husband and kids, it would be my mom and sister. I can't imagine my life without them.

If your house was on fire what 3 things would you grab on your way out?: My daughter, my son, and my scrapbooks! I don't even say my husband because I know he will get out first. :)

Hi Alli! Happy FMM - I love your blog. I also love U2.


Keri said...

Oh yes, I have a kitchen bar area that can make me absolutely crazy!!! I clean it off, my boys and husband whirl through and it's a disaster again. I seem to be the only person in this house that cares.

Tina said...

Monkey said...

Ahh..I'm so honored you said me! And I never knew about the date! I need details later...

And I'd have to say Mom's fried chicken with homemade ice cream and Grandmother's fudge I'm craving it all!
