60 things you didn't know about me and maybe didn't even want to

First, let me just say this:


Wonderhubby is a genius, having replaced the thermostat gas valve-y thingy, and sanity has returned to the Planet of Janet! Yay!

Second, I totally stole this from Dawn at Because I Said So. I thought it was funny (sorta) and wanted it for my very own. So here we are with:

60 Things You Possibly Didn't Know About Me
(Just for the record, the time frame for this is Friday night, for posting Saturday!)

1. What is in the back seat of your car right now?
Omigod. Let's see, a blank timecard from work, empty bottles that haven't gotten to the recycling center yet, old bills (paid mostly!), tapes, cds, um, candy wrappers, chorus music ... do I need to go on? It's so EMBARRASSING!

2. When was the last time you threw up
I have to go with Dawn's answer here: I refuse to answer on the grounds that it might jinx me.

3. What's your favorite curse word?
*go on to no. 4 if you don't like bad language cuz here it comes*
F*ck f*ck f*ckity f*ck f*ck. (Or f*ck a duck. That one has gotten me into a lot of trouble.)

4. Name 3 people who made you smile today?
My daughter, my husband, my friend Melodyann (her blog is currently "inactive" so no linky love for YOU!).

5. What were you doing at 8 am this morning?
Getting into the shower at the gym, after swimming! Yay for hot water at the gym!

6. What were you doing 30 minutes ago?
Watching TV with the Wonderhubby.

7. What will you be doing 3 hours from now?
Sleeping, I hope. Roo-girl is getting up at 3:30 a.m. (gasp!) for a cheer competition. Shoot me.

8. Have you ever been to a strip club?

9. What is the last thing you said aloud?
Is the TV still too loud for you?

10. What is the best ice cream flavor?
Coffee ... with "stuff" in it. I like texture with my fat content!

11. What was the last thing you had to drink?
Diet Coke with fresh lime (mostly because I was out of Diet Cherry Chocolate Dr. Pepper).

12. What are you wearing right now?
jeans and a sweatshirt

13. What was the last thing you ate?
Penne pasta with eggplant and mozzarrella, followed by two Hershey's kisses!

14. Have you bought any new clothing items this week?

15. When was the last time you ran?
From what?

16. What's the last sporting event you watched?
Cheer competition

18. Who is the last person you emailed?
Dory, responding to her comment on this post.

19. Ever go camping?
Yes. I like it as long as there are flush toilets. I'm not into the full outdoor treatment.

20. Do you have a tan?
Uh, NO! Just call me Casper the friendly ghost.

24. Do you drink your soda from a straw?
Only at a restaurant. Otherwise it's straight from the bottle, baby!

25. What did your last IM say?
"Love you ..."

26. Are you someone's best friend?
Yep. Totally.

27. What are you doing tomorrow?
Getting my daughter out the door at 4 a.m., going back to bed, then going to the water aerobics class at the gym, followed by watching J-bear's softball game at school. After that? Who knows. Perhaps the $1.50 hot dog combo at Costco and a lot of laundry and dishes left over from the great water-heater debacle.

28. Where is your mom right now?
Australia. Seriously!

29. Look to your left, what do you see?
My messy nightstand.

30. What color is your watch?
Stainless steel -- but it's gold- and silver-toned

31. What do you think of when you think of Australia?
Willowtree and his trivia game. Sunday is always Australia day. And I never do well at it.

32. Would you consider plastic surgery?
Maybe. It depends.

33. What is your birthstone?
Turquoise. Yuck. It couldn't be diamonds?????

34. Do you go in at a fast food place or just hit the drive thru?
I've done both. I prefer the drive thru in a pinch, though. Inherent laziness precludes me from wanting to park and get out of the car.

35.How many kids do you want?
I have all the kids I plan to have. Although grandchildren would be nice someday. (An aside to my children: please note that I said SOMEDAY!!!!)

36. Do you have a dog?
Yeah, two nasty rat dogs who still crap in the house.

37. Last person you talked to on the phone?
Wonderhubby, while I was driving home from work.

38. Have you met anyone famous?
Fred Astaire (sigh swoon). I am certain there are others, but I'm having a brain cloud over it.

39. Any plans today?
OK, now since I'm writing this Friday night, but you are reading it Saturday morning, I have no clue how to answer this. Or ... see No. 27. I'm in some weird time warp, I think.

40. How many states have you lived in?
Hmmmm. Three, I think.

41. Ever go to college?
Yes. I have a bachelors AND a master's degree. Don't be all that impressed. The masters got me exacty 45 cents more an hour for my first newspaper job.

42. Where are you right now?
In bed. Wonderhubby is sleeping. I am not.

43. Biggest annoyance in your life right now?
Potential loss of livelihood.

44. Last song listened to?
Carrie Underwood's "I Told You So." I think I'm obsessed.

46. Are you allergic to anything?
Kiwi ... and cleaning.

47. Favorite pair of shoes you wear all the time?

48. Are you jealous of anyone?
I'm jealous of people who have their sh*t together when I clearly don't.

50. Is anyone jealous of you?
*snort* I have no idea why anyone would be.

51. What time is it?
8:50 p.m.

52. Do any of your friends have children?

53. Do you eat healthy?
I eat healthy ... and then I eat crap!

54. What do you usually do during the day?
Work too many hours, and sweat too much of the small stuff.

55. Do you hate anyone right now?
My boss. Yep.

56. Do you use the word 'hello' daily?
Actually I'm more likely to say "hi."

58. How old will you be turning on your next birthday?
56 (noooooooooooooooooo! I just turned 55! Don't rush me!)

59. Have you ever been to Six Flags?
Yes, and I hate it there.

60. How did you get one of your scars?
Hernia operation when I was 18 months old.

Now ... aren't you glad we had this time together?

I absolutely loved this list. What a fun bunch of things to find out. And I thought my family was the only one to say f*ck a duck. Amazing.

Good for you "borrowing" that questionnaire. I've never seen that one before!

Huckdoll said...

Loved it! And hey, my favorite cuss word is fuck, too. For sure.

You are so fit and active - an inspiration :)

Oh, and I caught this Friday. Somewhere, it is still Friday :)

Magpie said...

F*ck a Duck was a favorite expression when I was in college. It spawned a whole obsession with ducks, including this one:

And my brother has one of these hats:

Jenni said...

That's my favorite cuss word, too! (And why shouldn't it be?) I use sh!t more often because of the kids being around. Why is f*ck a dirtier word than sh!t? That doesn't really make sense does it?

I love turquoise. I'd take turquoise jewelry over my birthstone (ruby) or diamonds any day--unless I needed to sell something for some quick cash:o)

Burgh Baby's Mom said...

That was fun! Now I'm in the mood for some eggplant, though. Oh, and I'm jealous that you get turquoise as a birthstone. It's SO much better than garnet. *sigh*

suchsimplepleasures said...

my birthstone is aquamarine!! i like that as much as diamonds!!
i might have to steal this meme thingy for tomorrow!!
oh yeah...f..k a duck is one of my faves, too!!

~JJ! said...

Holy crap long id that take you?

wright said...

That was great - that;s for sharing! I love cursing, but I gave it up for Lent. (And I probably shouldn't pick it back up. I don't want my baby's first words to be F*ck a Duck!)

Sadie said...

I love reading lists like this!! Very cool list!! I was giggling...AND you made me hungry. Now I must eat before I shower...when the plan was the opposite *lol*

Maria said...

Fuck a Duck???
Tht's better than what I yell!!

It's usually, fuckity fuckin' fuck.

dawn224 said...

I'm totally borrowing this. But I'm way too wordy, I wonder if I'll get 60 posts out of it...

anglophilefootballfanatic said...

I've had to switch to suck a duck. Small ears repeat and remember.

And, I'm jealous of you!

Cathy said...

I just did this!
It was fun!
Loved your listed!
I like to use the exclaimation point!
Yes I do!
Time for bed!
Hyper-active blogger!

lisa marie said...

By the time I read them all I forgot everything I wanted to say in response. Here's what I do remember. You don't like rugged camping? I think it can be fun on occasion but for the most part agree the toilets and showers are great if it's extended camping. :)

Good thing you said "someday" on the grandskids or you might have 10 next week. ;)

Pamela said...

how long did it take you to compile this?

My current swear word is "crap."
I've overused it recently because everything has been.
Also, I'm having a hard time pulling the right word out of a hat.
That one slides out easily.

Kaytabug said...

This was a great list! I really enjoyed reading it. We share the same fave cuss word! I also enjoy saying it with duck!
I love turquoise just as much as my birthstone, Garnet...but I always wished for Emerald.

I really should have commented when I read this...maybe I should borrow this one too.

So happy to hear you have HOT WATER!!

Canadian flake said...

lol funny answers...thanks for sharing..

How did the cheer competition go?

Dory said...

I starred this in my google reader so hopefully I'll remember to do this meme later!
Thanks for the linky love, sista! You rock AND roll!
