I know what you’re thinking.  Someone had a little too much fun with the photo editor.

Thanks to George at Ninjabetic for this idea!  To check out more No D Day Posts, click here!

For today I simply did a MEME, here goes:

  1. Do you wish upon stars? No, but I did as a child.  And I believed in Santa and the Easter Bunny for as long as I could.
  2. What color pants are you wearing?  Medium dark jeans
  3. What are you listening to right now? The Man Who Sold the World- Nirvana
  4. What was the last thing you ate? Blueberries
  5. If you were a crayon, what would you be?  Definitely Navy Blue.  
  6. How is the weather now? Don’t know…kinda cool, probably nice fall day.
  7. Favorite sport? Soccer, I used to eat, breathe, and dream it.  Still do sometimes…
  8. Do you wear contacts? Yes, gladly, seeing as the other day the optometrist took my glasses off, had me stare at the far wall and said, “Read the smallest line”.  That’s when I almost broke into tears and said through hard squinting, “I can’t see anything!”  She was like, “aww…here are your glasses back” lol
  9. Favorite month? I make this call based on the real events of the month therefore I can’t tell you until December 31st.  Strange, I know.
  10. What was the last movie you saw?  Happiness is a warm blanket, Charlie Brown.  Love it.
  11. What was your favorite toy as a child? I remember reallyyy liking my real microscope.  And I will always cherish the original Nintendo.  Even though my brother sold it.  I bought another and he sold that one, too.  Grrghh….
  12. How many states have you lived in? Technically 2 or 3…but mostly 1.
  13. Favorite Disney character?  Hello!?  I named my daughter, Aurora :)
  14. What are you most afraid of?  the unknown!  Oh my gosh if I could just see ahead, that’s all I ask!
  15. Tell us about an era of your life that you really miss.  I know most people don’t miss high school and yes there was much I really despised about it, but I sometimes really miss high school.  I SO enjoy learning in a classroom surrounded by peers.  You all know how opinionated I am and how nerdy so you can probably imagine this.
  16. Tell us about your favorite year when you were a student.  I was in 10th grade.  I was managing my sugars decently that year because I was not extremely depressed.  I made pretty good grades.  I had my friends in most every class.  Alex and I had gym class together.  I loved my teachers.  I played on the Varsity soccer team.  Life was good.
  17. When did you laugh today?  This morning, Henri ran into the wall.  Aurora couldn’t help but find it really funny but while she giggled she fell down and this caused Henri to laugh at her.  Then they laughed together for a few minutes while I chuckled from afar. 
  18. What do you care about that you wish more people would?  manners!
  19. Is it easier for you to go without food or go without sleep?  Food.  I cherish sleep.
  20. What non-alcohol beverage do you enjoy drinking the most?  I equally enjoy lots of drinks. Hot cocoa, fresh juice, coffee, milk.  I just don’t necessarily drink them very often.
  21. When you walk into a room full of strangers, generally how is your confidence?  It depends on who they are!  Generally my confidence could use a boost however I can fake it I think.
  22. Do you tend to believe members of the opposite sex mostly behave the same way?  Generally?  Although I have witnessed that you can give a 2 year old boy a doll and his 2 year old sister a truck and they WILL switch items every time!  Amazing…
  23. Would you ever consider being a vegetarian?  Sure, I’m not one of those whose body thrives off of animal protein.  I am a strong believer that some people need it.  Those who disagree should consider that they don’t need it and therefore can say that easier than someone with a different body.
  24. What alcoholic beverage do you enjoy drinking the most?   Scotch Whiskey
  25. Do you think someone might be thinking poorly about you? Why might that be?  Since forever people tend to think I’m one way when really I’m the opposite.  So I would say that someone out there probably thinks I’m an insensitive know it all who pretends to have all her ducks in a row.  Reality:  I’m actually a nice, sensitive person, who only jokes about knowing it all (there is a difference), who shares what works for her and admits to all her shortcomings quite regularly.  I’m even quite fond of self deprecating humor for goodness sakes.
  26. What was the last video you watched on YouTube?  Steve Jobs commencement address at Stanford University 2005.  GREAT STUFF.
  27. Is there something that you could never give up? My computer aka “The World at my fingertips”.
  28. Would you, (or did you) prefer a small, intimate wedding reception, or a big-scale, over-the-top reception?  My husband preferred something small and intimate.  I am not opposed to a grand over the top affair in my and someone else’s honor but was not willing to go in debt over it so we just had small and intimate.
  29. What’s bothering you right now?  My tea is cold :(
  30. What were you doing at 12 am last night? Chatting incessantly to Alex until he suddenly threw the covers over his head in desperation.  lol It was so funny.  I said, “Why didn’t you just say you wanted to go to sleep?”  I discovered he didn’t want to be mean and say “could you please stop talking now?” lol  Bravo honey, the covers move certainly sent me the message.
  31. Was this summer a good one? How warm was it where you live?  I’ve had better ones.  It was too hot and humid, yuck!
  32. Tell us the best thing about your current or most recent S/O.  What you see is what you get.  Is he smiling but secretly upset?  Nope.  Is he fake laughing?  Nope.  Is he full of flowery compliments each day?  Nope.  Does he promise me everything?  Nope.  But when he smiles, laughs, gives a compliment, and makes a promise, I know I can believe him.
  33. What is one of your quirks?  Hmm…when I’m upset I tend to always cut my own hair.  This often yields semi tragic results.  Why couldn’t I just clean when I’m upset like normal people?
  34. Best email ever:   Well the other day a woman emailed me saying she thought of me and Alex as a real life Princess and Prince.  She said it has nothing to do with money, fame, power, but grace, strength, and character and she thinks we have those things.  When Alex came home I had on a Halloween Tiara and said “Guess whaaat’s trueee?!”  LOL  It was very sweet though.  Very.

    OK, that picture made me LOL! Loved the Meme too. I mean, it’s a cool way to learn so much about someone.

    FYI I wouldn’t give up my computer either!

    I really enjoyed this! I learned so much about you… and I love that your favorite toy during childhood was a real microscope… and then the original Nintendo. Microscopes rock, and I remember getting one too, and then getting this really, super nifty one that let you see the images on a screen or use it as a traditional microscope. That was awesome. And my chemistry set! :) No wonder I love my science courses now…. ;)
