Just remember to @5crookedhalos me and use hashtag #5QF!)
1. What’s the last thing you spent too much money on?
This morning I bought my EARLY birthday present!! A Jawbone Jambox. Can’ wait for it to arrive!! I’ve been waiting for over a month to buy it. Gotta love my music!!
2. What celeb chef would you want to make you dinner?
I want TWO!! Paula Deen and Guy Fieri! Guy can just hang out while Paula is cookin’, that’ll make it fair!! I’m sure I would gain 10 pounds from her down home south cooking though!! Yummmmmy!!
3. Where do you hide things when visitors pop over or do you let them see the real deal?
In my room and close the door! Some folks can see the clutter, but mostly I stash it!! Yes, it’s true, I suffer from clutter-itis! Sue me!
4. Who is your oldest living family member?
My family is real small! All I have are my brother and sisters and my dad! I don’t know any of my dad’s side of the family! My mom’s immediate family has all passed on! I believe it’s up to me to branch this family tree out! In due time…
5. What is your favorite DQ treat and/or Sonic drink combo (ie: cherry vanilla dr. pepper)
I’ve been to the Sacred Sonic a dozen times and I mostly go for the food!! A friend turned me on to the Cranberry Slush, that is tasty. I’ll stick with burgers and tots!!!
Now it’s your turn! Go over to My Little Life and link up!! Go on, go…do it!

30 Days of ME! – Day 2


15 Interesting Facts about ME!

1.  I was a miracle baby! I was born to my mom when she was 44.  She had NO IDEA she was pregnant, up until she went into labor.  I had no name, no clothes, no nothing.  Best of all, BECAUSE I was born, my mom found out she had Cervical Cancer.  She was not a fan of doctors!   She did indeed, beat that cancer and live until she was 72! 🙂

 

2.  I am deathly afraid of groups of birds. OR single birds darting about my head!! Thanks Tippi Hedren!

 

3.  I love love love Disneyland and all its “magicalness”!  I go several times a month.  For several reasons, sometimes a combo of many things; people watch, eat, ride the rides, drink, catch up with friends, watch fireworks, take pictures, etc.

 

4.  I suffer from Trichotillomania, which is a form of OCD.  I pull my hair out.  I have done it since the 6th grade.  I wish I could stop. Very frustrating.

 

5.  More times than NOT, I am a major pessimist and skeptic.  Lots of lessons learned has led me to act and react this way.  I try to think otherwise, sometimes.  I admit it is a fault!

 

6.  I love to give gifts.  The look and feeling a person has when getting a “surprise” or gift just makes me shine.  Sometimes, I can’t hold onto surprises because the anticipation drives me nuts!

 

7.  I am starting to believe that I am a clone of my mom! We look exactly alike, same career path, same bad right hip, super gray hair at a young age.  So so many similarities that I share, that my siblings do NOT!

8.  Katy LOVES to eat. I have a food blog, I do reviews on restaurants, I have starting my own Adventures in Food (a la Guy Fieri) and I love to cook.  When my current bff met my mom years ago, she said, “I can’t believe I have found a friend that shares the same love of food as I do! We both get goosebumps over good food!”

 

9.  Since I have gotten my BlackBerry, almost a year ago, I have been obsessive about the indicator light.  This tells you when you have a text, bbm, email, facebook notification, twitter notification, missed call, etc.  Whenever I see that RED light, I have to tend to it right that instant. I could just adjust settings and turn it OFF, but noooooo! Feed the obsession!

 

10. I am a great listener, but sometimes I need to remember to shut my mouth and just LISTEN! Not everyone is asking for my advice, sometimes they just need to vent! I apologize my friends.

 

11. I enjoy a wide variety of music, except country! My taste includes such artists as; Drake, Linkin Park, Wu-Tang Clan, Morrissey, Sublime, Bob Marley, Journey, Phoenix, Floetry, Jay-Z, Snoop, Sade, Wicked Tinkers, old 80’s music, my list could go on and on and on…

 

12. I am a fan of rollercoasters, but NOT a fan of “spin n’ puke” rides.  Nuff said!

 

13. I am good wifey material! The cleaning aspect needs help, but all other aspects, I am golden.

 

14. Left Handers ROCK! Growing up the child of a teacher, all my work had to be done neatly.  Kind of tricky for a lefty like myself.  Some of us hold our pencils funny, tweak our papers or mal-adjust our arms.  Not me, I was forces to hold it correctly.  One caveat, as I write, my pinky smears my writing because it drags over what I’ve written.  In high school, I smartened up! I cut a coffee filter to the length of my pinky and wrapped it around.  No more smeary, nasty papers.  All the extra ink went onto the coffee wrapper. ta-dah!!

 

15. Losing my mom to Cancer in 2004 was the hardest thing I have EVER had to deal with! We only had 17 days from prognosis to her passing.  NOT enough time.  All of those days were spent in the hospital.  I hang on to all the fond memories I have of her as I strive to be as strong a woman as she was!!
