And you are...? bloghop


The wonderful Emily King and Tammy Theriault are hosting this fun hop, in which we all compete to win prizes from none other than Mrs. Claus!!

Which makes me SO EXCITED. I'm Mrs Claus around our house and honestly, it'd be nice if someone else shouldered the whole present-load occasionally. Hopefully one of the prizes is my own set of elves because I could use them right now.


These are the "And You Are...?" questions:


1. How many speeding tickets have you gotten?


Actually gotten? One. It resulted in a warrant for my arrest in the state of Missouri....which makes me an "authentic" Alaskan.

2. Can you pitch a tent?

Of course. I can also build my own campfire and wrassle alligators. *spits*

3. What was your worst vacation ever?

The vacation where, three hours after we'd arrived, my son opened our camper door and my 18-mo. old daughter fell head first onto the concrete camper pad. Her forehead swelled alarmingly, we spent six hours in the ER and then all night calming her down so that, when it was time to cut our losses and leave the campground, she was still screaming in the morning. We packed up at 5 a.m. while she cried inconsolably. When I asked her to "please quiet down, Gracie" our poor tent camping neighbors called out: "Yes, Gracie, please QUIET DOWN!" *burning red with remembered shame* She cried on and off the entire twelve hour trip home where we discovered she was cutting four teeth in addition to having an enormous headache. o.O

4. What was the last thing you bought over $100?

A hockey stick for my son.

5. We're handing you the keys to what?

A spaceship. With light speed, please. Or Wonder Woman's invisible plane. Either one works.

6. What was the last meal you cooked that made even you sick?

A chicken rice soup where the rice blew up and looked like tiny maggots.

7. Fill in the blank: Oh my gosh! Becky, look at her butt! It is so big. She looks like ____?

A spaceship. With light speed.

8. What was your first car?

A 1989 Dodge Horizon.

9. Your best friend falls and gets hurt. Do you ask if he/she's okay or laugh first?

Ask if she's okay. Unless of course her falling involves a wet butt or poo.

10. What's the worst song ever?
Ice, ice, baby.

Wonder Woman's invisible jet. Why didn't I think of that??

And poor Gracie!

Your worst vacation ever sounds like a nightmare!

BTW, buying an expensive hockey stick makes you an authentic Alaskan too...or Canadian. :)

Thanks for participating!

We haven't bought any 100+ dollar hockey sticks or skates yet, but I dread the day that comes.

I find it so odd that people get arrested for speeding in the States. Aren't there more important criminals to catch? In Canada you don't get arrested, but if they catch you speeding egregiously (50km over the limit), they take your license and seize your car on the spot. Problem solved and no one takes up space in a jail cell.

Oh, Ice, Ice Baby. How I love you and how everyone else apparently hates you. It's a mystery to me. I've loved you since the moment I first heard you at 12 years old.

Tammy Theriault said...

wow, terrilel vacation...funny ending to helping a friend..bowel movements are hilarious right!?

Shannon Lawrence said...

You're the second one to say Ice, Ice, Baby! Two of us said Achy Breaky Heart. So far, those are the only two I've seen tied.

Poor Gracie!

Poor baby girl! I'm glad she was okay!
And a spaceship would be awesome. :)

Hilarious answers. Great pick on the song. Bad tent neighbors! Crying babies don't bug me, unless the parents are ignoring them.
