100 Random Questions Answered By Me...

Well folks, here it is...  I have been here and letting you into my head for 100 posts, as of this post.  Scary, isn't it?  I know that most people try to commemorate their 100th post by doing something fun, so I'm gonna put on my best sheep costume and follow along.


As you may or may not know, one of the best parts of blogging is the friends you make along the way.  I have made some wicked awesome friends.  And for my 100th post, I have asked them to submit questions for me to answer.  The fun part? The questions are totally random!  So, here it is!  P.S. I won't be offended if you don't read them all, it's kinda long, but I had fun!
Enquiring Minds Want to Know...

1. Superman, Spiderman, or Batman: Who would you be more attracted to and why?
I'd have to go with Batman, but not the Adam West Batman.  Or the Michael Keaton Batman. I'm definitely all about the George Clooney Batman - hello hottie!!!  And the Chris O'Donnell Robin?!?!?  Can you say yummy?  I'm also a huge fan of the pre-fat and nasty Val Kilmer Batman.  He could be my Huckleberry anyday - wait, wrong movie...  But really, does anyone top the Christian Bale Batman?  I think not!!!  Look out Jack Kelly, you may sing and dance, but Bruce Wayne makes my heart go pitter-pat...  Why, you ask?  Have you seen Tobey Maguire?  Need I say more?  And I'm sorry, but Christopher Reeve was just too old for me...  But the Dean Cain Clark, haha, that's a whole other Oprah...

2. What are your thoughts on earwax?
Ahh, earwax...  I have a very complicated relationship with earwax.  You see, The Boy's ears are the highest producing earwax factories in the lower 48.  By virtue of this fact, I spend a lot of time harvesting earwax.  Once upon a time, I found this fact to be humorous, but 11 years in, I am thoroughly disgusted and so over earwax.  I long for the day I am comfortable allowing The Boy to stick cotton swabs in his own ears.  A day, in the hopefully forseeable future, when the bedtime routine doesn't consist of me using half a box (okay, 6) swabs to ensure the nasty, sticky substance that flows from his ears isn't visible to all who look at him.

3. Does The Man have any qualities similar to Clint Eastwood?
Considering the Clint Eastwood I am familiar with has one foot in the grave, imma say no.  But as I think more deeply about this question, I am reminded of the bad ass Eastwood.  The tough guy no one messes with.  He is BAD ASS...  And again, imma say no. 

4. If you could be any sex toy, what would you be and what color would you be?
Hehehehe, a blow up doll? Oh! Wait!  I'm not supposed to answer a question with a question... Hmm, I'm not so familiar with the sex toys. I went to a sex toy party one time. That was funny.  And Redneck Brother's first wife worked at a fantasy gift store, but I'm still not so familar.  That said, I'm gonna go with a blow up doll.  Hehehehe...  Do they come in different colors?

5. What was your worst bar customer experience?
Um, wow.  This is a toughie.  Usually I find a lot of humor in the bad experiences.  One time, there was this young douchecanoe, he had been to the Roadhouse Double Deuce type bar across the street prior to coming in.  It was early, probably only 6 or 7 o'clock and his ass was plowed.  He started out ok, but in a matter of a half an hour or so, he began being vulgar and offensive to other customers.  I kindly asked him to refrain from being offensive and the poor fool began to get lippy with me.  I kindly let him know that I did not tolerate people speaking to me in that fashion and asked him to please leave.  He protested.  Long story short, I gave him and his friends ample opprotunity to get the eff out my bar.  His friends tried aggressively to get him to leave  with them.  He refused.  So I arranged a ride for him - you know, the ride with the flashy lights on top?  He resisted the officers, got face planted and pepper sprayed.  In addition to a few nights in the clink, our friend had to make a pitstop at the local hospital....  Oh well, I warned him...

6. If you could have one super power, what would it be and why?
Ahh, super powers...  This one is easy.  If I could have a super power, I would want to be able to detect bullshit.  That way I would know with 100% certainty when my children were full of shit, when a man was full of shit, or when anyone else in the entire world was full of shit.  Wouldn't that be handy?

7. If you could torture one person with music, who would it be and what song would you play?
What an amazing question.  If you'd like to know what song I would play, click here.
*Consider yourself tortured, hehehehe*

8. How big is your bed?
Big enough for me and both of my monsters to lay in bed all day and watch movies together.

9. What music are you listening to right now?
No music, watching Burn Notice.  I heart Michael Weston.

10. Do you have any relatives in jail?
Not that I'm aware of. 

11. Have you ever gone cow-tipping?
Oddly enough, no.  It's odd because I grew up with a cow pasture in my backyard... 

12. What's your favorite midnight snack?
I lurve to eat...  My favorite midnight snack, however, is an ice cold beer OR a yummy vokda based drink...  I'm particular to Jeremiah Weed and lemonade and Stoli Vanilla Vodka with Diet Coke.  But I'm off the Diet Coke.  A whole month!  WOOT!

13. Wet the toothbrush or brush dry with the toothpaste?
People brush their teeth with a dry toothbrush?  WTH?  How does it lather?  Isn't the paste awfully...pastey? 

14. Have you thrown up in a car?
I have narrowly escaped it.  When the kids were VERY small, we had dinner at church.  It was a pot luck kinda thing.  On the way home, my stomach was all icky quesy and I felt very ill.  Mind you, I had two small children in the back seat, so I was trying to get us all home safely and in one piece.  About 2 miles from home, I knew there was no way I would make it, so I pulled over and blew chunks out my door...  Ew.

15. Do you scream on rollercoaster?
I. Love. Rollercoasters! A lot.  That said, there is one rollercoaster that made me scream.  In terror.  In the Wisconsin Dells, there is this SUPER AWESOME amusement park/water park called Mount Olympus.  Did I mention it is super awesome?  They have amazing waterslides, tons of go cart tracks, and killer roller coasters!  There is one, however, that scared the bejeezus out of me.  It is called Hades.  Hades has this super awesome incline that takes this super crazy plunge UNDER GROUND!!!!  And, it scared the shiz outta me...  Shhh, don't tell...

16. If you don't know the words to a song, do you improvise?
Absolutely not.  I'm a stickler for lyrics.  In elementary school, I had this friend named Michele.  Michele was my neighbor and we did almost everything together.  (P.S. Although we've drifted apart, in the last few years we've reconnected and make a point to call one another on our bdays.)  Anylongstoryshort, Michele and I once got into a ginormous argument over the words to Starship Enterprise's "We Built This City".  We didn't talk for DAYS (which is like years in little girl time) and both worked diligently to earn enough money to buy ourselves copies of the tape (yes, tape, remember how all of the inserts had lyrics for the songs?  I miss that.)  I don't recall who was right.  Maybe we both were wrong, but darn it, I know every word to that song.

17. Share your thoughts on punctuality and what you'd like to do to people who are chronically late.
Ahhh, I am the chronically late.  It's an affliction I can't help.  I do my best to be timely, but really, I am destined to ALWAYS be late.  Sorry!

18. Ice cream, pie, or cake?
I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!!!

19. What is the first facial feature you notice on a person?
I'm all about smiles.

20. If your life were a sitcom, who would play you?
What?!?!?  My life isn't a sitcom?  Since when?  Why the hell are there cameras in my house?  Who are these people with booms and mics?  How can all of this ridulous shiz really be happening to me?

21. If you were independently wealthy, would you still work?  If yes, what would you do?
I'm broke as heck and barely work now, why the heck would I do it if I had all kinds of cash?  That's just crazy talk.

22. Tropical island, ski resort, or dude ranch?
Definitely a dude ranch...  (What's that?  A dude ranch isn't a ranch with a bunch of hot dudes running around for me to oogle?  Screw that, imma go to the tropical island.)

23. If you joined the circus, what job would you have?
If?  I'm the freaking ring leader of this circus called my life.

24. Boxers, briefs, or butt floss?
Wait, I'm confused.  Women wear boxers or men wear butt floss?  Can I get some clarification here?

25. Who is your favorite football team?
Only the greatest football team ever - the New England Patriots.

26. Best beer ever?

28. Favorite band frontman?
It's a toss up between M. Doughty (Soul Coughing) and Eddie Vedder (Pearl Jam).

29. Favorite on-screen couple?
Totally Noah and Ally from The Notebook, but does anyone else ever wonder if Watts and Ducky would've made a great couple?  Just wonderin'...

30. Do you put your right sock on first, or your left?
Wow.  I have no idea.  Lemme think....
I think, if my reenactment wasn't tainted by this question, that I put my left sock on first. 

31. Pepsi or Coke?
Coke.  Diet.  Have I mentioned that it's been 4 weeks since I've had any.  Yes.  A WHOLE MONTH...

32. Icee or Slurpee?
I heart blue raspberry Icees, but to be fair, I live in a 7-11 free land and have never actually had a Slurpee.

The opposite.  At least that way I know it wasn't anything I could have done differently.

dancingwithsorrow said...

After reading some of your answers, I think we could completely have fun together! Our boys could have an earwax contest while we sipped a vodka drink. I'm pretty sure my waxy boy would win though! I'm also a lyrics freak, love Lady Antebellum, I'm always late and dream of going to Ireland! I had fun reading your answers, and you could totally be my new BFF! haha Congrats on post #100!

MojoMama said...

OMG, I was just talking to my husband about this subject the other day:

Would you rather lose your mate to the same gender as yourself or the opposite?

And I gave the EXACT same answer you did! He just didn't get it! I tried explaining that if he left me for a man, he was getting something I physically could not give. But another woman, I would always wonder if she just did what I did... but better!

CK said...

Oh, I had so much fun reading these. I felt like I was sitting up late, having a silly/heart-felt discussion with a good friend ;)

Thank you so much for sharing your story. I read the whole thing (Parts 1-5+) and I am just in awe at all you've been through and how powerful and positive you are through the whole thing. I am grateful for what you teach us and explain to us about drugs and suicide. I am grateful for your honesty and hope you have in your kids.

I send my hugs, gratitude and love. Thank you!

-CK
