23 Questions With Little Man And Baby Girl

A little over two years ago, I did the 23 Questions survey with Little Man. It’s time to do an updated survey for Little Man and get Baby Girl in on it to see what answers she comes up with to these questions. For the record, Little Man is almost 10 and Baby Girl is 3.

Do you believe in love at first sight?

Instant attraction? Sure. But actual love? Not so much.

Your first car?

A 1996 Saturn. Even though it was a few years old when I got it, it was one of the nicest cars in our school parking lot. I had a lot of fun in that thing and tested its limits in such ways that the idea of giving LM a car in several years terrifies me.

Who taught you to ride a bike? How did it go?

Even though my dad claims to have taught me, it was my then stepbrother. After trying to teach me didn’t go so well, my dad got pissed off and went back inside. My stepbrother (who was the same age, we were both 7) stuck it out with me for the rest of the afternoon and I was zooming around by myself by that evening.

Ugly and rich or beautiful and poor?

How about somewhere in between on both of those and I’m at where I already am —  a great family and a comfortable life? If not, I’ll take ugly and rich as long as I get to keep my husband and kiddos in that scenario. They’ll love me anyway.

What was the first dish you could cook?

Pancakes, bacon, and eggs for my dad on Father’s Day when I was 14. My grandmother wasn’t there to supervise, so after being surprised with breakfast in bed, he had to go finish cooking some of it (pancakes leaked with batter after cutting into them and the bacon wasn’t done). I did better on this when I tried again later, so I’m counting it as my first thing I could cook.

Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

I had a lot to be grateful for last week. First and foremost was that we didn’t see much from Hurricane Matthew. One of the early models showed the hurricane coming up in a similar path as Hurricane Hugo did when I was 6 (the eye passed right over our county), and it took a while for out town to recover, so I was worried. I only wish things hadn’t been so awful elsewhere. Also, as I wrote about yesterday, I’m grateful that things are going so well for my son this school year.

As far as what I’m looking forward to in the week coming up — my husband is off all week, so it’ll be nice to spend some extra quality time with him. We’ve got a busy week ahead.

Questions I Asked My Family: Star Wars

Today’s post comes from Eric at All In A Dad’s Work. He does an awesome post each week where he asks his two boys a set of questions. The answers are often hilarious. This week he did a Star Wars theme, which I liked so much that I ripped off the questions for my own post. Thanks, Eric!

1. If you were a Jedi, what color light saber would you use?

LM: I’d have to say yellow. No, orange, because that’s how I am. Half yellow and half red because I will kick butt if someone messes with me.
Sam: Green.
Me: Green.

2. Would you fight for the Rebels or for the Empire?

LM: Rebels. Because I’m a good guy.
Sam: Rebels.
Me: Rebels — X-Wings for the win!

3. Would you live on Tatooine, Hoth, Degoba, or Coruscant?

LM: Hoth. I love the snow, and South Carolina hardly ever gets any snow.
Sam: I wouldn’t want live in any of those damn places.
Me: Degoba.

4. Using the Star Wars Name Generator what would your Star Wars name be?

LM: Alcyone Aquagold – A foolish young hero from Helska.
Sam: Obinbes Regor – A Rebel from Dubrillion.
Me: Dheneb Lectronflame – A troublemaker from Aldera.

5. Who is prettier, Queen Amadala, Princess Leia or Rey?

LM: (Snickers, gets a huge grin on his face…) Rey.
Sam: Rey.
Me: Rey.

6. Which vehicle would you drive? A speeder bike, AT-AT, X-Wing fighter, TIE Fighter or Millennium Falcon?

LM: That is so easy — a TIE fighter.
Sam: X-Wing fighter.
Me: X-wing.

7. Who is your favorite character?

LM: Finn, because he’s a traitor and a rebel.
Sam: Obi-Wan.
Me: Rey. I generally like the main characters on Episode VII more than the old ones.

8. How would you escape from Jabba the Hutt?

LM: I would get a tack and poke him like a balloon, so all the aliens would burst out. And then I’d run for my life.
Sam: I’d make a bet and con him.
Me: I’d let LM or Sam do the work and run for it.

9. What would you use a droid for?

LM: Doing my chores, being my best friend, and tickling my sister.
Sam: I’d let it be part of the family like a pet.
Me: To help keep the house tidy.

10. Who would win in a duel, Kylo Ren or Darth Vader?

LM: Darth Vader. Remember what Rey said when Kylo Ren attacked her? Rey said, “You’re afraid that you’ll never be as strong as Darth Vader.”
Sam: Darth Vader. Kylo couldn’t even beat Rey.
Me: What they said.

Those of y’all that like Star Wars should join in the ripping off of the questions and do this yourself. We can call it “The Pilfering From Eric Star Wars Challenge.” 😉

Do You Really Know Me?

I’ve seen a couple other posters do this survey, so I’m down. You can read their answers at Twin Daddy Blog and Joeyfully Stated.

Now, I’m sure with the other survey type things I’ve posted, y’all probably think you know me. Maybe you think you know me better than you’d like, even. If you aren’t at that point yet, you will be by the end of this survey.

1 – Boxer shorts or budgy smugglers? Boxer shorts FTW. I love wearing my husband’s.

2 – What color of underwear are you currently wearing? White. Because I’m boring.

3 – How long have you been wearing them for? Since this afternoon when I decided I should put on underwear if we’re going to town.

4 – Do you ever use binoculars to watch people? Hell no. I avoid looking at people when possible. My grandmother was known to use both binoculars and a telescope to attempt to spy on our neighbors. (In her defense, we lived way out in the country, so she needed more power to spy.)

5 – Have you ever kicked someone in the groin? I’ve accidentally kicked Sam a few times when we were horse playing. 

6 – Would you pull a trigger? Absolutely I would.

7 – If you met your favorite celebrity, and they wanted to make out with you, would you? No. But if they wanted to send me naked selfies, I wouldn’t say no to that. 😉

8 – Have you ever slept in the same bed with someone you were not in a relationship with (not talking about sex and one-night-stands)? Yeah, my cousin and sister and I used to share a bed some as kids.

9 – Have you had one-night-stands? Nope.

10 – Does sex have the same importance to you now compared to when you were younger? Eh.

11 – Have you ever eaten a worm? Fuck no.

12 – What’s the grossest thing you’ve ever eaten? I tasted okra once. Blech.

13 – How long do you spend sitting on the toilet? Not long, as Baby Girl feels the need to assist me, so I try to get it over with as quickly as possible.

14 – What do you do when you sit there (besides the obvious)? When I’m not telling BG to put the toilet paper down, I’ll sometimes read on my phone. (Yeah, gross, I know.)

15 – Have you ever been peed at? Not that I can recall.

16 – What’s the grossest thing you have ever swallowed? Well, actually swallowed? Uh… But grossest thing I ever had in my mouth? That’d have to be baby poop, baby pee, and baby vomit. My kids were fucking awful to me as infants.

17 – What’s the constantly dirtiest place in your home? Bathroom.

18 – Why don’t you clean it? Because I didn’t make the mess, dammit.

19 – Do you eat your boogers? Srsly?

20 – Can you describe the one smell that makes you gag? Eggs do it every time. But smells of many, many foods also trigger my gag reflex, which makes for a picky eater.

21 – Have you ever had head lice? Yeah, when I was 5 or 6. My grandmother was upset because she thought everyone would think our family was trashy and dirty. A handout Little Man brought home in 5K that looks a lot like this one informed me that isn’t the case, though:

head-lice-handout

22 – Have you ever been utterly disappointed in someone? Yep.

23 – Have you ever been scared of someone? Definitely.

24 – What do you do when you’re drunk that you wouldn’t want anyone to know about? There was the time I recorded myself singing a bunch of Dixie Chicks songs, but otherwise, I’m usually amazeballs when I drink. I send the best drunk texts ever.

25 – Have you tried pole dancing? Nah.

26 – Have you been in a strip club? Yep, just to see what the big deal was.

27 – Have you ever run over an animal? Yeah, a squirrel. It made me cry.

28 – Have you ever peed in snow? Ew, why???

29 – Have you ever made fun of someone and then regretted it? Yeah, in high school. It was one of those payback situations, but I still knew better at the time and still regret it.

30 – What’s your favorite kind of question on Cards for Humanity (if you know the game)? I freaking love Cards Against Humanity! I don’t have a favorite, but seriously need to play it soon. Who’s up for a little Cards Against Humanity, Blog Style?

31 – If the father of your best friend hit on you, what would you say to him? I’d tell him to fuck off.

32 – Would you go out on a date with someone half your age or double your age? No.

33 – Do you clean the sink after brushing your teeth? I rinse it out.

34 – Have you ever spat in someone’s food or drink? No.

35 – Have you ever kissed someone only to be grossed out afterwards? Yeah. Joys of being a teenager.

36 – What is your number one goal in life, and are you living it? My goal is to be the best person, wife, and mother I can be. Some days yes, some days no.

37 – Do you spy on your neighbor(s)? If yes, why? No. I make it a point not to talk to the neighbors.

38 – Have you ever danced and/or cried in the rain? Nah.

39 – Have you ever ditched work to just chill out on your own (with or without Netflix)? I once left work early so I could watch a March Madness game that my school was in.

40 – What do you wish you were doing right now (anything goes)? Building an empire.

This doesn’t appear to be one of those surveys where you tag 15 people and guilt them into answering the questions, but y’all know I want you to do it anyway. 😀
