Survey says....

Wowy Zowy, someone gave me an award.

Thank you to Adventures of a Corn Fed Farm Princess for passing the torch to me.
Please go check her out if you haven't, she is a riot and a total sweetheart.
As with all Blogging peer awards, there are rules attached. I actually like this part because it gives us all a chance to get to know each other just a little better. So here goes, the rules and regulations:
1. Thank and link back to the awarding blog. (done ^ up there)
2. Answer seven questions. (Ohhhhkay...)
3. Provide 10 random factoids about yourself. (Random! I've got that covered.)
4. Hand the award on to 7 deserving others. (Can do!)


1. What is your favorite song?
Who even has 1 favorite song and who in their right mind would want to hear my answer?
Right now my favorite song is this one:

And this one:

Now that you have educated yourself.
Next question.

2. What is your favorite dessert?
Sour Patch Kids
Key Lime Pie
Kit Kat Bars
Sno Balls

3. What do you do when you're upset?
Cry some more
Make a list
Listen to something sad
Cry some more
Get the fuck over it.

4. What is your favorite pet?


I am a little misty eyed over that last pair of cats. You have no idea.

5. White or whole wheat?
I like whole wheat. The more crunchy seeds and texture the better. I am a bozo motherfucker.

6. Biggest fear?
Outside of the usual "my kids drowning in a well"
"natural disaster in which I am unprepared for and I have to strap kids on my back and hang off the car roof with one leg tied to the car with a seat belt like how Oprah showed me"?

I would say one of my biggest fears is that paper, handwriting (the cursive kind), and books are a thing of the past and everything goes digital.
I am going to be the grandmother that dutifully teaches her grandchildren cursive, and hand written thank you cards.
Then and only then, will my life be complete.

7. What is your attitude, mostly?
One day I will have a cat.
I shall name it Waffles.

Ten Random Facts:
I have a phobia of praying mantis.
Don't fuck with me about this (SADIE)
Its a fucking FOR REALS real phobia. If I even *think* I see one, I get whoozy and I feel like pissing my pants. Which I have actually done when one landed on me. And I proceeded to get half naked in front of everyone while screaming like jack the ripper was stabbing me.

I have been eating whole tomatoes like apples since I was 1.

The first time I read a "big book" was when I was 9. The book was Jurassic Park.

I have actually seen Indiana Jones more times than I have Star Wars.

I don't have cable. I don't watch much of regular t.v. but when I do, its usually Star Trek, The History Channel or WEN infomercials.

I am overly emotional when it comes to my kids. I cry during the singing of Happy Birthday. I cry when they get hurt, etc.
Recently I went to pick up Eldest early from school and they said she wasn't at school, I was silently freaking out while they considered if she was ditching class or if something happened to her as they were paging for her on the intercom. When she walked in the office I was so relieved that she hadn't been kidnapped or a sudden rebelious crazy child I yelled "OMAGOD MY BABY!" And hugged her. She begged me not to cry. I did anyways.

I really like school. I wish I could go every day for the rest of my life.

I sit on my boyfriends lap every day and tell him about my day. I stroke his beard and he rubs behind my ears like a cat and I meow.
I am not even joking.
The things he deals with.

I am not the jealous type. In fact when I see a pretty or a hot girl I say "Did you see that girl? She was so hot!" Or I tell the girl, "your boobs look great in that dress...seriously" Believe it or not they are never creeped out. Its about  time girls told other girls they are hot shit, instead of plotting to destroy them.

I can't climb anything more than a counter if my life depended on it. No fences, no walls, no rocks, NOTHING. This is a proven science people.

Now to pass this on to 7 other bloggers (it was hard to decide just 7 because I wanna know everyone better!)

The Incompetent Hausfrau


The Mother Freakin' Princess

The Misanthropic Father

Organized People are Just Too Lazy to Look for Stuff

The Parsley Seed

Pinwheels and Poppies
