Monday Stuff

You Ask, I Answer

I’m answering the “Getting to Know You Questions” from MannLand5 as well as my own questions from the Monday Morning Meme.

(Because Mondays are so much easier when all you have to do is answer questions – you know?)

1. Do you like seafood?

Ugh. Hell to the no.

I can’t stand chewing on anything rubbery, or anything that makes a squeaky noise between my teeth. It totally and completely grosses me out!

BUT…

I’m okay with some fish (Tilapia, Salmon, the Long John Silver fish [whatever that’s officially called]) and crab? Is not my favorite, but pretty good with noodles and Alfredo sauce at Red Lobster.

Okay fine, I’m okay with SOME seafood.

My guys love shrimp – I can’t stand to even look at shrimp, cooked or otherwise. Just … yuk.

2. Are mermaids hot?

I’m not sure, I’m not into mermaids – I don’t swim those waters.

If you know what I mean. *wink*

But Mermen … NOW we’re talking.

RAWR

3. Have you swam in the ocean?

Yes. But not just to swim – we went snorkeling a few times. And though it was cool to swim with the fish, I hated every minute of it. One, I’m not a big fan of water – especially big bodies of water (I’m not the strongest swimmer). Two, I swallowed enough salt water that I was burping seaweed for a straight week after that.

Not. Fun.

4. If you got stung by a jellyfish, would you let a stranger pee on you?

Depends on what the stranger looked like.

I kid. (Sort of).

I don’t know. I think it might depend on how badly it hurt. I’ve never been stung but like to think I have a pretty high pain threshold. But then again, I hear jelly fish stings are pretty painful, so again … it depends on how hot the stranger was.

Kidding again. (Sort of).

5. Have you ever pee’d in the ocean?

Um. No. And I’m quite proud to say I’ve never been tempted.

Fish deserve clean seawater, too, you know. And yes, I’m TOTALLY playing the wacko environmentalist card cause I’m a jerk like that.

(Clean – seawater. That’s got to be an oxymoron, right?)

6. Can you make a cute fish face? (Show a pic..if you want)

I’m not sure about the “cute” part, but here goes nothing …

7. When you see the lobster tank at the grocery store do you just have this overwhelming urge to set them free or cook them up?

No. I have an overwhelming urge to avoid even going within ten feet of the tank. Lobsters are the things nightmares are made of.

I can’t believe people actually eat those suckers.

I mean think about it a minute – how was it even discovered you could eat those things? Did someone walking down the beach one day spot one and think, “I wonder what one of those ugly, creepy, monster-looking things would taste like?”

I mean, I can’t even comprehend that thought let alone think about putting something so hideous into my mouth.

Just … ew.

8. Are you afraid of sharks?

No. As long as they’re on the other side of glass.

Would I ever get into shark-infested waters? Only if I were unconscious.


1. If you could take back something you did to someone, what would it be?

I can’t answer that, it might incriminate me. (No. Seriously. It’s bad. Sorry to be so cryptic, but … well, sorry to be so cryptic).

But there are plenty of things I’ve said over the years that I wish I could take back. I have a big mouth (I KNOW! That’s such a shocking revelation), and I have a tendency to just blurt something out before thinking, especially when I’m annoyed and especially when I’m ticked off.

It’s funny, most people get a little more outspoken as they grow older, I find I’m starting to exercise restraint as I get older. And I really think it’s because I’ve said so many stupid things in my lifetime that I’ve met my quota.

My stupid meter is close to being maxed out – I have to dole out my stupidity slowly now.

2. Would you describe yourself as spiritual, religious, or something else?

Definitely spiritual. I have a strong faith in God and I trust Him implicitly. I study His word (the Bible, for those not in the Christian faith), and I follow Jesus Christ.

Religious, to me, implies people who put too much time and energy into belonging to an organization or a group that enforces strict rules, regulations, or rituals that one must follow in order to One, belong to the group or organization and Two, to stay in the group or organization.

I personally don’t believe that God meant for Christians to be so … restrictive? I guess, for lack of a better word. I never make it a secret that I’m a Christian on this blog and if you’re interested in learning more about what I’m only glossing over here, you can find more information here.

3. Did you ever receive detention in school? What sort of kid were you in school – bookworm, smart kid, troublemaker, quiet … etc.

Erhm, yes. (*said in a tiny, child-like voice*)

What can I say, ya’ll, I was a bad girl back in my day.

I got suspended for skipping school.

It wasn’t my fault!

(Okay, yes it was).

I had good intentions. I drove to school. I drove into the parking lot at school. Then I would think, “Wow. It’s a beautiful day. I don’t feel like going to school today,” and then drive back OUT of the parking lot.

*sigh*

When I was AT school (*ahem*), I was a huge drama geek. I was stage manager (for a show we took all the way to state and WON, thank you very much) and student director my senior year for the school musical.

I very much LIKED being student director. I totally had license to boss people around.

I’m sure that’s hard for you all to accept, but yes, I was (am) a bossy person.

4. When’s the last time you ran a mile? How often do you exercise?

I don’t run. I don’t want to ruin my knees, but I will do one of those pathetic walk/jogs where I’m not technically walking or running but just sort of … skipping?

The last time I exercised was about two weeks ago. I did Turbo Jam and then walked skipped three miles. I was so sore the next day that I couldn’t move, let alone exercise and then I got distracted and never got back to it.

But I will. I go through exercise “spurts” and I feel another one coming.

Soon. Very soon.
