And you are? Blogfest

It's time for "And You Are?" Blogfest Q & A.  Special thanks to Emily KingTammy Theriault for coordinating this blogfest.  There's over 50 blogs participating so if you get a chance, stop by and visit Tammy and then check out the other fabulous bloggers.  These questions were not what I was expecting so the answers are...well, I'll let you decide.

1. How many speeding tickets have you gotten?

Two. Once on a date. True story too. My date in the passenger seat asked,"Why are you going so fast? My reply: "Because I have to be first." I don't know what was worse: getting the ticket right after I said that or giving that dude more amo to rag on me. Yeah, that relationship didn't last too long after that.

2. Can you pitch a tent?

I don't do much camping, but if I had to, I could.

3. What was your worst vacation ever?

Once I went to Acapulco with a person who I thought was my friend.  I learned a lot on that trip.  Like when some people go on vacation--especially in a foreign country--they think that gives them license to turn into a**holes.  In short: Worst. Vacation. Ever!  That's all I'll divulge on the subject, but it may make for a great scene in a future story.  How's that for turning a negative into a positive?

4. What was the last thing you bought over $100?

My son's bday presents. :)  Legos are so damn expensive.

5. We're handing you the keys to what?

My dream home in the Keys where my backyard is the Atlantic, and I have an endless supply of margaritas.  :)  

6. What was the last meal cooked that made even you sick?

Thanksgiving dinner. Lol! Lawd, that food is too rich for me. They call it stuffing for a reason, right?

7. Fill in the blank: Oh my gosh! Becky, look at her butt! It is so big. She looks like _____?

...every a** man's dream.

8. What was your first car?

Honda civic. I'm a Honda owner for life.

9. Your best friend falls and gets hurt. Do you ask if he/she's okay or laugh first?

I used to laugh first. Now, I always ask if she's okay, then laugh my a** off. I can't help it.  However demented, there's something I find but hilarious when a person trips.  Sorry, have we met? I'm the president of the inappropriate humor club.  And you are?

10. What's the worst song ever?

I hope I don't offend anyone with this answer.  Even though I liked the movie Dirty Dancing, there are two songs I can't stand.  It's a toss-up between Hungry Eyes and Time of My Life. Thank the gods for Patrick Swazye or else I think the movie would  have a complete flop.  How can you forget some of the cheesiest lines in Hollywood? "No one puts baby in the corner."

Care to share any of your answers to the questions above?  Come know you want to.

Your butt answer made me laugh! And are Legos really that expensive now?

Dani said...

My boys are getting Legos for xmas and they ARE expensive.
I laugh too. I think we might belong to the same inappropriate club.
Great answers!

Elise Fallson said...

Ha! We had similar answers for number 9. If I ever trip in front of you, you have permission to LYAO. Oh, and I'm so coming over to your dream house! I'll bring the tequila. (;

M.J. Fifield said...

Legos are expensive. I'm glad my nieces and nephews are out of the Lego phase.

And your answer to #7 is awesome.

Emily R. King said...

I've got a Honda Pilot. Not exactly a Civic, but I love it.

And your butt answer is great. Very true!

Thanks for playing along. :)

mshatch said...

I love Dirty Dancing, too, but that IS one of the stupidest lines ever!

Morgan said...

Holy crap, Legos ARE expensive. And I'm totally a Honda fan too... Honda for life! ;-)

I had a Honda Civic for 9 years--best car EVER!

Azara said...

"Because I have to be first." BWAHAHA! Love your honesty. And I'm a laugher too. I think it's because I'm such a klutz that I've just gotten used to laughing automatically when anyone falls down, myself included.

Visiting from the hop.

Tonja said...

When I fall down...and I seem to fall down a lot...I like it when people pretend it didn't happen. I try to extend the same courtesy to others (after helping them up and asking if they are OK of course).

S.P. Bowers said...

Legos are expensive! And we're lifetime Honda owners too. The one time we bought non Honda was a disaster.

Tammy Theriault said...

oh my gosh...your "because I have to be first" has me giggling hysterically!!! so freakin funny! love the butt comment, too.

Shannon Lawrence said...

Your answer to the butt question was nice AND funny. Well done!

Worse vacation story turns into winning scene in future novel? Thumbs-up to that!
Inappropriate humor club? Got space for another member? I'm in!

Lily Cate said...

Oh Legos. Can't afford them, still have enough to build a second house.
But they're too funny to resist!

David P. King said...

Yes. LEGOs ARE damn expensive. Exactly the expletive I would use. And yet, I can't help but encourage the buying of said plastic bricks. Who said they're just for kids? :)

ah, the keys! but hurricanes scare me!
and #7 is awesome! ha!
