Get to know me a little better!

I read My Life written by jannelle and she posted this on her site here. I thought this meme was cool. A nice way to tell you more about me, hence the name, "meme".

She got the questions from a string of other blogs that she reads.

My uncle once: gave the eulogy for my grandmother's funeral (I only have one uncle.)

Never in my life: received a speeding ticket

When I was five: I had to have my tonsils and adnoids removed and tubes put into my ears. I was almost deaf in one ear due to fluid build up!

High school was: um, . . . 12 years and another lifetime ago? I had an okay time. I have never been a big partier. I started dating Jimmy my sophomore year and worked almost full time my senior year so my mind was else where for most of it!

I will never forget: oh, lots of things. I have a memory that can remember what I was wearing on the first day of fifth grade (acid washed jeans, Guess t-shirt with a wrinkly puppy dog on it, and big earrings - one pink and one blue, high top Reeboks - the kind with two strips of velcro) but can't remember that we are out of milk. On a more serious note, my wedding day, and the birth of my two kids.

Once I met: a boy with beautiful blue eyes and an earring. (A few weeks later I asked him out and four years later we got married. That meeting was almost 16 years ago now.)

There’s this girl I know: hmm . . . no idea on this one - I know too many great women.

Once at a bar: I was asked to leave because I was not yet 21. (My bachlorette party actually!)

By noon, I’m usually: ready for lunch?? Tired of talking and ready for a break.

Last night: I fell asleep while watching TV. It was BEFORE 10:00. The first week of school always wears me out!

If I only had: a never ending cash flow that would allow me to just do whatever I want. You know, like not have to work, but volunteer in all my friends' classrooms. (I am stealing this answer from janelle.)

Next time I go to church: I will talk to the pastor about Meagan wanting to be baptised.

What worries me most: retirement/getting old and ill (I am not a big worrier but it has recently dawned on me that I am not getting younger.)

You’ll know I’m lying when: I say I like to exercise.

What I miss most about the 80’s is: having no responsibilities. (And not realizing how good I had it and not to rush through being a kid!)

If I were a character in Shakespeare, I’d be: Kate - she was the feisty one right?

A better name for me would be: Messy, Disorganized, Forgetful Seriously, my parents wanted to name me Tomi (after my deceased grandfather) I always wondered if I would have a different personality with a different name - probably not!

I have a hard time understanding: politics. And how to keep score in tennis, no matter how many times Jimmy patiently explains it to me.

If I ever go back to school: Well, I go every day mostly - they get mad if they have to call a sub for me too often! Seriously, I would love to go back and get a PhD in curriculum but financially it just doesn't make sense right now.

You know I like you if: we laugh a lot together. (This is different from me laughing at you. :)

Take my advice, never: keep holding onto the ski rope when you have lost your footing (Happened to me when I was 10 or so and I never tried to ski again.)

My ideal breakfast is: something that is not a normal breakfast food. (Leftover pizza and a coke sound good to me.)

If you visit my hometown, I suggest you: get tea and eat steak strips at Dairy Burger.

Why won’t people: just agree to disagree instead of arguing about everything. So much more could be accomplished.

The world could do without: parents who do not do their jobs.

I’d rather lick the belly of a cockroach than: there is NOTHING worse than what this suggests!

My favorite blondes are: Meagan and Garrett

If I do anything well, it’s: surf the web?? Make homemade chicken noodle soup, teach reading strategies.

And, by the way: Don't drive fast even if you are running late. As my mother says, "Better late than dead."


ya ya's mom said... glad you "stole" it from me :)
