I'm adding a little extra to a meme discovered on [livejournal.com profile] neebs' journal

Sunday night, on the way back from Tacoma, we stopped at the grocery store to pick up some extra mushrooms for our leftover dinner makings. In my defense, I need you all to believe that I was STARVING!!!!!!! so you don't laugh too hard at me. We pay for groceries, go out to the parking lot, I've got shotgun, everyone else goes to the other side of the car to get in, I open the passenger side car door and hear "Dana, that's not our car." Yes folks, I was going to get in someone else's car. Also in my defense, it was a SUV very similar in size & color to Ronette's and the door was unlocked. The other driver was cracking up, so I told him that I was looking for someone more fun to go home with which made him laugh harder. Glad I could give him a good laugh for the day.

And now a little amusement of my own . . . )

Because I'm a joiner *snort*

Rules;
A. List seven habits/facts/quirks about yourself. (in your own journal, obviously)
B. Tag seven to nine people to do the same.
C. Do not tag the person who tagged you or say that you tag "whoever wants to do it".
Yeah, B & C are baloney just like all the bad luck you'll get if you don't forward this email to 10 people in the next 5 minutes including the person who sent it to you.

1. I change the sheets on my bed at least once a week. Honestly I'd change them everyday if it didn't mean a buttload of laundry. The quirky part is that I shower and wash my hair before getting into the clean sheeted bed. And it annoys me when Ronette crawls in with her stinky self.

2. There are certain words that trigger my mouth to say a corresponding phrase. Example - "Therefore" if said in the right church tone triggers "let us keep the feast". Lines from movies, songs, you name it, the right word will have me doing entire monologues.

3. When I was a kid, ironing was one of my favorite activities until I almost set the house on fire. I'm finally rediscovering the joy of using an iron. It's almost as relaxing as laundry.

4. I love laundry. I don't do dishes.

5. If I get too cold, I break out in hives.

6. I'm a cheap date when it comes to wine or beer. One glass and I'm all wooooooooo! Liquor on the other hand takes a long time to reach the wooooooo! point.

7. I've seen spirits.

8. And I'm adding another one because as I was eating my dinner, I realized that I was picking out things and eating them separately. So my eating one thing at a time also manifests itself in one-dish meals. I do it when I eat salad too.

Interviewed by Madame [livejournal.com profile] ajayne

The guidelines for this meme are as follows:

1. Leave me a casual comment of no particular significance, like a lyric to your current favourite song, your favourite kind of sandwich, or maybe your favourite game. Any remark, meaningless or not.
2. I will respond by asking you five personal questions so I can get to know you better.
3. Update your LJ with the answers to the questions.
4. Include this explanation and offer to ask someone else in your own post.
5. When others respond with a desultory comment, you will ask them five questions.

1. What were your first kisses like? (Both with a girl and with a boy.) Were they wet and sloppy or soft and sweet?

Well, technically my first boy kiss I consider #0 as it was the grossest thing ever and I never, ever, ever wanted to do that again. The boy that I consider my first kiss was very sweet and probably one of the best kissers I've kissed. *sigh* Damn, he was a good kisser. Now, so that boy #0 gets some credit, he did improve as a kisser, but not as well as boy #1. First girl kiss was with my current honey and it was nice and weird at the same time. Nice because I wanted to do it again - it was different than kissing a boy, but weird because it was so different than kissing a boy and I couldn't figure out after the fact why it was so hard to do in the first place.

2. What is your favorite sex toy? (Um, well you did mention sex toys in your response!) ;) Why is it your favorite?

The Wedge hands down. You would think that it wouldn't be that exciting, but it really makes good sex even better.

3. If you could shop in any store RIGHT NOW and money was no object, what store would you shop in and what would you buy?

Probably a Macy's or something of that sort. That way not only can I buy pretty clothes, but I can get sparkly things for my ears, purses, kitchen stuff and whatever else I want. Spending Spree!!!!!

4. What is the stupidest, most embarrassing thing you have done in public and then hoped no one saw you, despite there being security cameras everywhere?

Well, the one moment that I can think of I was caught doing my stupid, embarrassing thing. You know how in San Francisco, if something is left on the sidewalk it's fair game. I left a restaurant one night with a group of friends - drunker than drunk - and we walked by a bunch of paperbags/garbage bags on the sidewalk. No one else was around but our group, so I stopped and looked in the bags. Fair game, right? Anyway, the chick who had left the bags came walking around the corner going "wait, that's my stuff". So, no security camera, but caught in the act all the same. Personally, I thought that she shouldn't have left her stuff out like that.

5. What song, on your iPod, do you think would work best with OhMiBod?

Off the top of my head, I think anything by Alice in Chains. Particularly "Man in the Box" which makes me giggle now that I think about it. Or if I were in a classical bent maybe some Stravinsky, but I'm leaning towards some hard rock. OK, now I'm really giggling because I must be 12.

[livejournal.com profile] emeralds_roses tagged me to do this

Instructions: Each player starts with 7 random habits/facts about themselves. People who are tagged need to write on their own blog about their seven things, as well as these rules. At the end of your blog, you need to choose 7 people to get tagged & list their names. Don't forget to leave them a comment telling them that they have been tagged.

random, random, random )


Yeah, I'm suppose to tag people, but I don't do that. If you wanna do it, do it. If you don't, that's all good too.

I am paper

You Are Paper

Crafty and creative, you are able to adapt freely to almost any situation.
People tend to underestimate you, unless they've truly seen what you are capable of.
Deep down, you're always scheming and thinking up new plans. Your mind is constantly active.
You are quite capable of anything you dream of. You can always figure out a way to get what you want.

You can wrap a rock person up in your sheet of trickery.

A scissor person can sneak up and cut you to pieces.

When you fight: No one can anticipate your next move

If someone makes you mad: You'll attack them mercilessly when they're unprepared



Then I was inspired by [livejournal.com profile] ajayne to do this meme . . .

House in escrow. Woo Hoo! We close January 5th. Woo Hoo!

Now if we can just get the post office to deliver our mail here and not there. Our realtor discovered a mail tub full of our mail sitting on the back porch. The US Postal Service sucks.

We've been house hunting today. Found one that we really thought about putting a bid on until our realtor called and the sellers had just accepted another bid. *sigh* It was a really good house too. Oh well, if it's meant to be the current deal will fall through on it.

And now for those with dirty minds.

List 5 things that people may not know about you and then tag 3 friends and make them do it.


  1. I am still afraid of the dark.
  2. Even though I'm a great speller, I made spelling test cheat sheets in 4th grade.
  3. I am a romance novel junkie. I think about writing one.
  4. I have read over half of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince when I was told not to start it yet so I could get the rest of my work done.
  5. I have 5 1/4 inch floppy disks saved for posterity.



My tags - [livejournal.com profile] just2bme, JT, and MB - you non-lj people should just give in to the cause.

I took the challenge. You can too.

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
5. Don't search for the "coolest" book you can find. Do what's actually next to you.

"That feeling had haunted him ever since he'd heard the news about Roark; the sensation of something unpleasant that remained after he'd forgotten the cause."

Fairly easy to figure out since there is an actual character name in the sentence.

You Know You're From North Carolina When...


You've gotten used to the smell of cow manure on a car trip to Raleigh.

Saying "y'all" isn't just a cute expression; it actually means something.

There are big labrador retrievers in the back of every truck.

You give directions using KFC and Waffle House as landmarks.

You still see Dale Earndheart tributes on cars.

You can't imagine life without Bojangles' sweet tea

Your annual church fundraiser always deals with bbq and potato salad

You have a sunburn from May to October

Your 'heavy winter clothing' consists of some turtleneck sweaters, a fuzzy jacket, and your daddy's boots

Your family has fried chicken once a week

You can tell the difference between cotton fields and tobacco fields while driving

One of your neighbors has a confederate flag hanging on their front porch

Those "damn yankees" are taking over your school/church/workplace/neighborhood...

You've been "properly raised", and yankees love it when they hear you say "ma'am" and "sir"

You get your carbs from biscuits, rolls, pancakes, and grits

You know the difference between a "redneck" and a "hick".

You own at least one surf shop or seafood restaurant shirts.

No matter what those people in ohio say, we are still "first in flight"

The Coca-Cola 600 is as big as the Super Bowl

You prefer Chick-fil-a to KFC

You know pastry is a chicken stew, not a dessert item.

Every time you visit someone you’re offered something to eat and a glass of tea.

Your granddaddy always wore overalls and your grandma always wore an apron.

In summer you have home-grown tomatoes with every meal.

When it rains and the creek rises, everyone gathers to see how high it rose.

You know that "chunk" the ball means to throw it.

You've had a burger "all the way" - chili and slaw on it.

You can recognize a copperhead and your heart drops when you see one.

You have at least one relative that raises collards.

Your folks have taken trips to the mountains to look at leaves.

Your school classes were cancelled because of a hurricane.

You know Krispy Kreme makes the best doughnut.

You have an opinion about UNC. You went there and loved it, or you hate everyone who did.

You know the best BBQ is found in North Carolina

You would rather eat at Bojangles's than McDonald's

You have actually uttered the phrase "It's too hot to go to the pool"

You faithfully drink Pepsi or Mt. Dew everyday of your life.

You have your own secret bbq sauce.

You or your neighbors have more hunting dogs than you have family members.

You actually get these jokes and pass them on to other friends from North Carolina.






For the record, I had to edit the best BBQ location. It's too much of a fight to narrow it down to one specific town.

I will happily give everyone my top 5 songs. However, either I'm lame or the majority of my friends are really lame because sadly, I've run out of friends to tag who haven't already been tagged. You know who who are and why you are, so don't complain. Nyeh! Wimps!

1. Jump Little Children - Not Today
2. Jump Little Children - Easter Parade --So I'm allotting two spaces to Jump because it was really hard to choose. I could have just said anything by Jump, but that would have been taking the easy way out. I LOVE JLC!!!!!! Easter Parade is just a plain fun song that reminds me of high school and a dear friend of mine. Not Today reminds me of, well, me.
3. Nouvelle Vague - Too Drunk to F*ck - -I'm really into Nouvelle Vague right now, but there's just something about hearing this Dead Kennedy's song sung by a French chanteuse a la bossa nova. You think it won't work, but curiously it does.
4. Nikki Meets the Hibachi - Song -- Discovered at Violent Femmes concert in 91, thought they were the Indigo Girls until I got close enough to the stage to see them. The entire album is wonderful, but this particular song makes me feel warm and fuzzy.
5. Weedeater - their version of Southern Cross -- Yes, I like the Crosby, Stills and Nash version, yet I do enjoy this gritty sludgey version.

I'm seeing a theme here of song covers performed in a completely opposite style. And also that all but one choice is from NC. And that I'll probably never find the majority of them playing at SBC Park or the HP Pavillion. If you want to check out my favs, you can find all but Nikki Meets the Hibachi at the iTunes music store. For Nikki, you'll have to talk to me.

For my final performance I tag all of my lame wimpy friends who read my journal but have so far refused to get their own and be my friend.
You know who you are and I expect emails or GASP! a new friend.
