I've Been Tagged - Again!

By Tam, over at Waiting For Kevin. She's got Kevin, the cutest Guatemalan baby I've ever seen. EVER. And I say he's the cutest Guatemalan baby not to be rude, but because I've got other readers who also have babies, and each of them are equally adorable. So I can't very well say that Kevin is the cutest baby of all time, can I? That may be true, but I risk the wrath of many other mothers. And I don't want to be beaten to death by binkies. But really, you can't look at him and tell me he's not frickin adorable, right? (CLICK THE LINK, PEOPLE!)

Anyway, back to being tagged. This time I need to write 7 weird things about me, and tag 7 other people. Sadly, I don't even HAVE 7 readers (with blogs). Tee hee hee. I have six. So hah! I don't have to tag anyone. *Sticking out tongue*

But on a more serious note, you all can tag yourselves and do it - that'd be fun. Especially for people reading it! But I won't force you. I'm nice. I don't force anyone.

So here are my seven weird things (out of many many other weird things):

1. I like giving people strange questionnaires. If I feel comfortable enough with the person, and they seem up to it, they end up answering things like, "If you had a choice between breaking every major bone in your body or being Britney Spears' assistant for the rest of your life, which would you choose?" (I personally, would go with the breaking-bone thing. Otherwise I'd spend the rest of my life in jail for throttling the life out of Britney after a week.)

2. As a toddler, I was obssessed with Vivaldi's Four Seasons. Whenever I would hear it play, I would sway my head to the rhythm until the song finished. I would ONLY do that with the Four Seasons. Nothing else.

3. If I had to eat something for the rest of my life, forever and ever and ever, it would be asparagus. I L-O-V-E asparagus. More than ice cream, chocolate, cheesecake, fries, and other yummy things. I once participated in a food survey, where we had to fill out some anonymous questionnaires concerning our food preferences. And out of a room of 30 people, I was the only one that said I would prefer asparagus over chocolate. How do I know this? Because the researcher-lady said it out loud.

4. I'm nearly always cold during winter. It doesn't matter if I'm inside, snuggled in bed with my plush teddy, Sir Avery Dum Dum. The slightest wind in my house will send shivers down my spine. There's a reason why I take long baths so often during winter.

5. I've got 2 sets of 3 birthmarks, both on my arm and my face, that form a straight line.

6. I love the adult burlesque scene. I love the clothes, the style - it all looks so elegant and over the top to me. One of my favorite celebrities is
Dita Von Teese, who has brought "classy" back into "stripping". She has been a fan of burlesque since she was a teen, and has been wearing corsets for years. She dresses amazingly elegant, and has become famous for her elaborate burlesque shows.

7. When I was a kid, I used to dress up my little sister. And not just clothe her - I'd drag her into the bathroom for hours while I applied makeup, did her hair, nails, until she'd run out screaming, "MOM! Jane's trying to dress me up again!" If my mom told me to leave my sister alone, I'd get so angry that I'd sit there and bawl. Now my sister is the ultimate tomboy. Maybe it's my fault?

First off, my DEAR cousin, your sister is not a tomboy (by a mile). She just doesn't care to dress up like a nice girl. Why isn't she a tomboy you say? Well... according to the dictionary a tomboy is a girl who is really really REALLY into sports more than others and one who behaves more like a boy. Your sister doesn't really behave like a boy (at least I don't see it). And she TOTALLY swoons after every guy (hot or not) that she sees. You probably damaged her for life about dressing her up though. So ending my little rant here. 1: your sister is not a tomboy, more like doesn't care to dress nice. 2: OMG what a cute baby. 3: Blaming you for your sister not wanting to dress up. :D Teehee 4: Von Teese is pretty cool. 5: ASPARAGUS?! Are you Fucking kidding me? 6: Sneezes... teehee (just had to add that. ^_^ Remember the good old days). 7: VIVALDI'S FOUR SEASONS! I BLAME YOU! I loved that classical music as well. :-P Used to play it a lot. 8: Yeah... you LOVE asking strange questions to people. I think it's funny. Hurrah! Time to go home. Laters (at your mom's but finished all the work that I had to do today).

Okay, maybe my sister isn't a tomboy. Maybe she's just sloppy about her dress code. Although I still think tomboys swoon after guys - they just don't show it. :)

And yes, Asparagus, Dani. A-S-P-A-R-A-G-U-S. Yummy in my tummy. Shush.

Dita Von Teese is more than pretty cool. She's darn tootin' hot. Ha, ha...I just said tootin'.

Sneezes - you know, I TOTALLY forgot what code that was for until right now. I was thinking, "We didn't get sick in Sweden, did we?" And then I went, "Ooooooooooooh. SnEEzes. Yeah." It's so NOT like a sneeze! Silly writer.

And yeah, I like asking people questions. I'm nosy. It's fun :)

Tee hee hee... talk to you later!

Not like a sneeze? YOU would know? How could you forget?! Although have to say that I LOVE how you added that. :D It was awesome. GUESS WHAT?! My best friend Dawn is pregnant! YES! She's not even even 22, but I'm happy for her. Poor girl is going to be in so much debt. I'm happy though because she's like a sister to me. I'm SOOO going to spoil her kid (until Josh has one, boy is he going to be sorry when his gf gets one). Not saying that that's going to be anytime soon. Now that I'm hearing about all the babies... I... ok I admit. I kind of want one. KIND OF!!! So anyway, passed that moment. Umm... I should go. And to get rid of the embarrassment for now. Your sister just said that she couldn't wait to see you and your boyfriend. Teehee... humm... I feel like there's something else that I was going to tell you. OH! And your sister thought that Dawn was a guy's name and thought my friend Dawn was a guy. >.< Teehheeee! Laters

Pug & I said...

Wow - Dawn is pregnant? Don't they use protection at all? I almost feel like smacking one or both of them. They're so young. But, well, I wish them the best and hope it works out. I know I'm not ready to have a kid, and most of my friends (who are in their mid to late twenties) are also not ready to have a kid, so I can't imagine Dawn taking care of a kid. At her age. It's just shocking. But maybe she'll be a great mom. Ya never know.

And I totally understand you sorta wanting a kid. I do too sometimes, but I really think it's because we're female and we've got the instinct to mother. When I see a baby I just want to hold it and kiss it and change its diaper and stuff. But actually HAVING a baby - that's a different story. That's not gonna happen for a LONG, and I mean LONG time. I don't want to have kids until I'm in my thirties. I don't think most people are emotionally mature enough in their twenties to have kids.

Oh, and my sister ALWAYS can't wait to see me and my boyfriend. Ugh. It annoys the crap out of me. She thinks relationships are WAAAYY more romantic and stuff than they really are. Believe me, we are an old boring couple. VERY boring.

dannylionthe1st said...

Oh yeah! They have to have used protection. They've been together for about four years. YEAH! That long! I'm happy because the baby is NOT mine but I get to spoil it and such seeing as how I'm basicly a sister to Dawn. :-D And I can come and go when I want. :-P Also I know what you mean about having a baby. I don't think I'm ready for the labor and such. So I went to your house today and saw a GORGEOUS black cat. Wanted to take her home with me, BUT my mom pretty much said NO! And the kitty was letting me pet it and stuff. So almost as soon as my mom said no I shut down. I'm pretty sure that I snapped at your sister a couple of times, and the day is not over so I'm sure that I'm going to do it more today. I don't know. Right now I feel very very VERY empty and void of emotions. I love the dog but at the same time cats are more my thing. If I did take the cat though I would be scared how the dog would handle her (seeing as how the dog has gotten rather rough). I try to make the dog more gentle but my mom keeps on hampering my attempts. Better go. Working with your mom.

Thanks for the compliment on my boy :)

I also LOVE asparagus!
