Who Are You Game..Tag, I'm It!

 Hi there my little whipper snappers! I got tagged for this little game by Megan over at
 Modern Mama Dramas . Thanks for inviting me to your game! I feel like a fabulous 'it' girlie girl! Go check her out if you have a second! She is hilarious I tell ya, hilarious!
This is a little blogger's game of well, TAG, YOUR IT! It is to get to  know your fellow bloggers! No rules, just answer the questions, tag whoever you like, and there is no set number of tag-ees! So here we go!
1.  WHERE WERE YOU BORN?    I was born in Newport News, Virginia. Lived there for 2 weeks, and moved home to West by God Virginia, where I have been ever since, except our recent, non fun, foray into Kentucky. 

 Nope.  Well sort of.  My mom wanted me to have an original name 38.5 years ago, and loved dancing.  She also wanted me to have red hair like her.  So I guess a teensy inspiration came from Ginger Rodgers/Fred Astaire, because she loved old dancing movies, especially theirs!

3. IF YOU HAVE CHILDREN, HOW MANY DO YOU HAVE?   I have a 20.5 year old step daughter, an 18.5 year old stepson, and a daughter of my loins that is a very full of herself, that is 4.5.

4. HOW MANY PETS DO YOU HAVE?   None...wait, does the 4.5 year old count! TeeHee! No seriously, we do have 1 pet. My 4.5 year old has a pet fish.  A plastic one.

5. YOUR WORST INJURY?  Never really had an injury, except poking myself in the eye with a toothbrush, which you can read about here, The New Toothbrush Incident , until this past summer, when I broke my knee and leg at the beach! Split My knee and halfway on down my leg, and split the back side too,  (of my leg!!!)and compressed both side tops of my knee bone.  Amazing enough, no surgery was required.  I have several funny broken leg related posts! Here is the first one! Top 40 Things I have learned from Breaking My Leg

 Ummm....An ungodly inordinate amount of patience? Writing, humor, taking care of everyone around me, I am a mother hen, I used to do all kinds of crafty schtuff, til I had my offspring.  I love photography! I make up silly song to and about everything? I can apply makeup with the best Hollywood artists in the biz(did my momma's when she passed), and I am an awesome friend! Who sometimes forgets to keep in touch with my besties as often as I should! Oh and I read most people very, very well!

7. WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE THING TO BAKE?  Cupcakes, Muffins, cakes, cookies, all yummi stuff!

8. FAVORITE FAST FOOD?   Well right now I have been craving a big meaty, cheeseburger, so  yeah, that.
9. WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP?   On one of those circle bungee cord trampoline things, sure!
10. WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE?  Eyes, hands, and personality.  

11. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED?  Wednesday night/am while talking to my daddy on the phone!

 Yes, but I cannot disclose my super secrets to the general population! Plus it would knock a chip off of my' find the positive in everything' public persona, wink!

Cherry Coke, Sunny D, Water. Love southern sweet tea, but I cannot have it often, as I am anemic, and it blocks Iron absorption.  I sneak occasionally!

  Skye O'Malley, and the follow up All The Sweet Tomorrows, by Bertrice Small

 Sure, the first super squeaky clean pirate

16. FAVORITE SMELLS?   I love fresh, green, citrus-y smells. Cloves. Old Spice. New baby smell. I think I'm attached to a lot more smells than I realized.

17. WHY DO YOU BLOG?   To stay sane.  I am a stay at home mommy to a 4.5 year old.  I have minimal adult human contact, unless you count my in-law family, all who want to discuss my child.  I needed somewhere to let me out, to expel, to puke out my inner thoughts, before they clog up my brain.  I write the really nasty ones on a super secret blog, that is NOT family friendly, but it is hilarious!

  Amazing Grace.  It has become my family meaningful song.  My now deceased cousin sang it at my PawPaw's funeral, It was sang at her funeral, I sang it at my Uncle's Mother's funeral, and it was sang at my mommy's funeral.  No other song would be appropriate.  I also wrote my mother's Eulogy.  THE ENTIRE THING. And put together three science fair exhibit boards of pictures, and well pretty much did or assisted my dad in doing everything for the funeral.(It was recent 11.22.11)

 That I don't stand up to people who give me their opinion on what I should do, how they think I should live my life, and how I should raise my child.  I just nod, and go on about my business.  I guess it's the southern lady in me. That is also my super power...biting my tongue...It is truly a miracle I can still talk! Hah! There are some people that really deserve a piece of my mind, but...biting my tongue...biting my tongue...biting my tongue...

  Photographing my 4.5 yr old. Blogging. Eating with friends. Hanging out with Hubbie the Dearest.(and sometimes HTD bff Unca D) And finally duh dah dah duh... Pooping alone! No seriously, that last one wouldn't count, as I gave up on it a long time ago...

21. WHAT DO YOU LOOK FOR IN A FRIEND?   Honesty, Trust, Loyalty, coverurassability willingness...just kidding, I have a tribe of my best girls I wouldn't trade for the world...I am almost 40 ya know...Geez that sounds so old, how did I get to be almost 40? And the This is 40 movie? ALL TRUE! I love my friends that have been and are with me for life. That when things get a little hinky, or too deep, and I lose myself  little, that I can hang out with them, or simply talk to them, and they remind me of who I am. Of how super duper stinkin' fabulous I am!

22. NAME SOMETHING YOU'VE DONE THAT YOU NEVER THOUGHT YOU'D DO.  Sound Like my Mother.  Like the first time I had the AHA, Oh SH&% moment was when I was sitting in the floor, vacuum upside down, between my legs,trying to pull hair out of the vacuum cleaner beater bar with tweezers.  That was the moment I knew! I am my momma! Visit so many tropical destinations. Have a private Bahamian island rented for me for a day. Some pretty crazy , and some public unmentionalables...heehee!
23. FAVORITE FUN THINGS TO DO? Beaches, play-parks(playgrounds), swimming, play dohing, painting, going out un-kid-encumbered with HTD, road trips with my daddy, reading, scalding hot bubble baths, playing adult toy store tag with friends, sunbathing and reading a book, wait I even remember doing that? It was way before kids...in my twenties! Pschew I'm getting up there!  Oh and photography!  See I am getting old, I forgot my favorite thing ever! And babysitter fueled trips to hang out with friends!

24. ANY PET PEEVES? People that feel like they have to shove their beliefs down your throat and MAKE you see their point of view! ARGH! Rude, no filter people. I don't say whatever the he!( I want, so why do u think you can? Oh that's right, I was raised a lady!
25. WHAT'S THE LAST THING THAT MADE YOU LAUGH?  My child.  She hopped on my back in bed this morning, and said giddap Nola! Who the heck is NOLA? I guess that must be her super secret horsey name for me! Hah!

Now for the tag-ees; Adventure Into Domesticland , CHill Thoughts , The Inklings of Life , The Vintage Age of Hollywood , and Enjoying the Epiphany
