We Want To Know Wednesday-Evening Edition


I found this meme via Amanda over at This Side of Reason who I am pretty sure that I would like to hang out with because she is so cool. And since I felt sort of guilty about just leaving a picture in place of a blog post, I'm doing TWO posts in one day! Aren't you impressed? No? *sigh* There's just no pleasing you people!

{1} You have been asked to give a 10 minute speech to teenage girls. What is it about?
First: Don't depend on a man to come along and make all your dreams come true. Make your own dreams happen, and you will be happier for it.
Second: Keep your pants on. Having children is one of the biggest responsibilities out there, so wait until you are in a place where you can support, love, and truly be a Mama.
Third: Listen. Listen to what the successful women in your community have to say, and take their advice.

{2} Do you have a pet? Tell us about them. No pets? Why?
We have cats. We have three indoor cats: Morris, Pounce, and Zena. Morris first showed up and actually knocked on the door of my apartment in 1998. He is 16 years old. Pounce is 11, and is insane. Zena is a kitten, about 9 months old, who keeps the lizard and snake population around here hopping. Then we have a backyard cat named Lalo who spends his days on our patio or in the bushes. We aren't sure how old he is, or even if he's a he. We did have a yellow Lab named Sandy, who passed away last Easter at the ripe old age of 13. We would like to get another dog, but we want to wait until our son is older. We are generally animal lovers, but I just love to watch cats. Plus, cats can help us in our rebellion against our zombie overlords, should a zombie apocalypse occur.

{3} What is the biggest inconvenience about the place you’re currently living?
Everything is so spread out here, you pretty much have to drive everywhere, and lots of areas are not pedestrian friendly so you end up walking essentially on the side of the road in many spots. I would walk a lot more if I didn't have to worry about some idiot texting while driving.

{4} What do you think is the single best decision you have made in your life so far?
That's easy. The best decision that I've made so far was to decide to try one last time to have a child. I had one embryo left, I had a clotting disorder, and I had already almost died of pre eclampsia once. I had to see doctors every week, I had to give myself injections every day, and I almost died again from pre eclampsia, but it was totally worth it. Now my son is here, and he's beautiful and healthy and happy. Which is what I wanted in the first place.

{5} What are the THREE "nevers" of your life? (things you would never do or have never done)
I have lots of NEVERS. I have found, however, that whenever I use that word, NEVER, it comes back to bite me on the butt. But I'll venture to say that I will:

NEVER willingly jump out of an airplane.

NEVER eat caviar, bull testicles, sushi, snails, frog legs, or any animal's brains(including yours, should a zombie apocalypse occur), and

NEVER let you go talk to Bradley Cooper if you have spinach in your teeth.

Okay. How did I do?


  1. Frog leg and calf frys are actually very good.

  2. I'm with ya on all your "i'll never eat" other then the sushi. Yum! :)

  3. Los Angeles is pretty spread out, but it's just a blip compared to Texas.

    Tossing It Out

  4. Oh you are sooo missing out on the sushi, but I agree with the never jumping out of an airplane. Yikes!


I welcome comments, but reserve the right to correct your spelling because I am OCD about it!
