38: How did you spend Valentine's Day?
In bed. And no . . . not in the good way! I was in pain. Cramps, headache . . . I was exhausted, too. My husband bought me an awesome card that read, "I love you like a geek loves band camp." He also got me some Cadbury Creme Eggs. They were scrumptious.
39: Do you eat enough vegetables?
I do, actually! I love salads, and no . . . not because I'm into healthy eating. I put bacon bits, and cheese, and croutons, and dressing on my salads . . . turning an otherwise healthy bowl of greens, tomatoes, onion, and bell peppers into something nearly unrecognizable as an actual "salad". I love to snack on raw veggies. Carrots, bell peppers, snap peas, green beans . . . but my favorite is celery with peanut butter.
40: Do you like horror movies? How about thrillers?
I like both. One of my favorite horror movies is The Exorcist. One of my favorite thrillers is Se7en.
41: Do you like scotch?
To be honest, I don't think I've ever tried it, so I have no idea.
42: Who is someone you would never swear in front of?
Two someones: my mother-in-law and father-in-law.
43: Coolest thing you've ever seen on Halloween?
We drove around looking at decorations one year, and we came upon this one house that had a gazillion carved pumpkins displayed in the front yard. And I'm not just talking about your standard Jack-o'-Lanterns, either, though there were quite a few of those. There were Disney-themed pumpkins, Classic-Monster-Movie-themed pumpkins, Peanuts-themed pumpkins . . . tons and tons of gorgeously designed, intricately carved pumpkins. And they were all lit up with flicker-style, white Christmas lights instead of candles, so they stayed "lit" and still looked awesome.
44: If you could change your natural hair color, would you? To what?
Been there, done that. I always preferred my natural color in the end.
45: What subject would you take if you were forced to take a free class?
Well, there was that one time that I was forced to take an Interoffice Sensitivity Training class, because apparently, calling my immediate supervisors "ancient hags with infinitely more wrinkles than intelligence and common sense combined" was frowned upon by The Powers that Were.
46: Do you use reusable grocery bags?
I own them, but I rarely use them. I always forget them in my trunk; on the rare occasion that I do remember to take them into the store with me, I end up forgetting to take them back out to the car after I unpack them.
47: City or nature person?
Neither, really. I hate crowded cities, but being a "nature person" seems to imply that I enjoy nature . . . and I really don't. I suppose I'd say that I'm a person who prefers to see nature, rather than a city, when I look out my back door. I just don't really want to interact with said nature.
48: Have you ever used something other than "makeup" as makeup? (Like paint? Markers?)
Um . . . no. But how bad is it that the first thing that came to mind after reading this question was a line from a certain little ditty by The Bloodhound Gang about a very sad stripper?
49: Do heights bother you? Can look look out the window on the top floor of a skyscraper?
Yes, heights bother me. But I'd have more trouble standing in a open area and looking up at an incredibly high ceiling than I would looking down from the top of a skyscraper.
50: Post 5 awesome things about your blog. BRAG AWAY!
- My blog has purty colors and banners that change with the seasons!
- My blog is almost annoyingly real.
- I am honest to a fault in my writing, and that doesn't always place me in the best light as a mother, a wife, a daughter, or a person.
- I don't care if I'm not always seen in the best light; I know I'm not perfect, and I know that no one else is, either. My blog is what it is, and it isn't anything that it's not.
- My blog has lots and lots of colorful language! I mean, seriously . . . who doesn't like the word "fuck"?!?
