Tag Times Two

This chick tagged me twice.
The chick being Liz. She's funny. I'm not that interesting, so you will have to deal with blah blah blah. Well, I guess you really don't have to as this is the US (where I am typing anyway) and you have the freedom to turn me off, if you wish. God love the USA (and anywhere else you are). here goes.

Five Things About Me Today,

a.k.a Liz Tagged Me, Part 1:

1. I have an uncontrollable urge to go outside and spray my neighbor with the garden hose. I have this urge fairly often. I have been known to put one of my neighbor's fire pit with my hose when he isn't looking. Only when he leaves it burning for three days straight without supervision. That's not the neighbor I want to squirt today. The neighbor I want to spray today is only seven and cute as a bug. We both love water gun fights and it is a warm one today.

2. I am in the midst of watching True Blood on DVD. I read the series of books and the comparison between the book and actors makes me giggle. Suave, debonaire Bill the Vampire talks like Elvis. Sookie! Not such a bad thing, but what happens when the real vampire Elvis is brought onto the show. If you read the books, you know what I mean.

3. At the moment I am eating a lunch of Cherry Chicken Pasta Salad. I have died and gone to heaven. If that's true, why do I still have a long list of to-dos?

4. Today is going to be a Sonic day. I am going to get a rootbeer blended float. I have no idea if it is good as Sonic only opened last week, but I have never met a rootbeer and ice cream concoction I haven't liked. Not such a good thing in the butt size department.

5. Reading Liz's blog (specifically her travel journal she made) reminded me of a funny story. My friends and I were once kicked out of an American Legion Bingo Hall. Who knew that yelling BINGO Y'ALL was "illegal"? The old ladies in polyester with multiple bingo daubers didn't like it and complained. Didn't matter. We went upstairs and bought pull tabs where I won $100 on the first pull. WOO HOO Y' can keep your nickels!

Well, that is me today. A little fiesty. A little boring. A little tired. Blah Blah Blah.

Lots More About Me,

What are you wearing today? Stretchy stuff. I'm gardening. My belly is big. Need I say more?

What do you think about the person who tagged you? Liz is awesome. Fun, wacko talented and creative and a great friend. Oh and an awesome mom. I wish she would quit running though. It makes me feel unmotivated. Ha! LOL!

What's your favorite guilty pleasure? I don't feel quilty about them and that is the problem. I'm using Liz's wording....stinkin' dq blizzards and come on, if you know me at all you know I will say...rootbeer floats. Oh and I just discovered Lemon Ice Smoothies at Culvers. No guilt. That is what I am guilty about.

Favorite vacation spot? I am not going to say Graceland. That was the most depressing place I have ever been. Elvis was not in the room. I loved Colorado and I love New York City.

What would you like to have in your hands right now? The itch in the middle of my back.

What would you like to get rid of? About 100 pounds.

If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go? For just an hour...hmmmm...the moon. Oops...that's not in the world. Dang... A bank vault in which I could keep all that I could hold onto. Bars of gold anyone?

What's your favorite thing about the city you live in? Everything you need is near.

Describe your personal style. fashion-wise...Casual and comfortable. Scrap-wise...simple and uncluttered.

Who's fashion show would you want tickets to? I'm allergic to skinny a#$ed models wearing costumes no one in their right mind would ever wear.

Who's closet would you like to raid? No ones.

What are you most proud of? I'm a good person despite my upbringing. LOL! That is so not true. I mean I am good, but my upbringing was excellent. My mom will whip me good for that one. Kidding about the whip, too. She had a wooden spoon and soap to keep us in line. Oh man...I'm in troub...ble.

If you could choose one person who had passed to have lunch with who would it be and why? I'm with Liz on this one. My Dad. Why? No explanation needed really.

Now I am going to tag whoever read through all this. Yep...I took the easy way out.

Happy Saturday to all and to all a good night.

if you were invisible, you wouldn't need the flying could sneak and steal a plane. however, you'd have to list flying as your 'what would you like to learn'. of course, you could just walk into a flight school and learn if you were invisible.

this is getting nowhere fast. i like the garden hose. i'd spray my neighbors just for fun, but i never see them. have a great Sunday D!!!
