Sunday Stealing: The Alpha Meme

My roommate and I once: headed down the Jersey Shore where I proceed to video tape every hot random guy we saw, talking with them or just hootin and shouting at them. "Yeah baby, oooooohhhhhhh yeahhhhhhh." I laugh now when I look at the video because most of the guys really weren't all that hot but we did get some invitations to parties for that night which of course we didn't take them up on. We were just a bunch of teases in short cut offs and tiny belly shirts.

Never in my life have I: kissed a girl. The thought is pretty repulsive.

High school was: A blur. I moved around a lot and attended 3 different schools during my high school years making it hard to acclimate to any of them.

When I’m nervous: I tend to get quieter as if that is even possible.

My hair: is long and always has been except for one brief moment in my life when I had it cut really boy short. It used to get a lot of attention from women when I was younger who loved it. "so thick and beautiful." Now it needs coloring every 4 weeks. One of the worst parts about getting older right now is the grey hair. Going to be 43 this month, still feel young but the hair is starting to change color in the root area and there is nothing I can do about it. Men look good with grey highlights, women....not so much....Grrrr....

When I was 5: I loved all things Barbie.

When I turn my head left: I see out my dining room window and it is wet and crappy out there.

I should be: relaxing, reading or playing with the kids but here I sit filling out a meme that in the long run will contribute nothing to my life but feels satisfying at the moment.

By this time next year: I hope to be at least 5 pounds lighter because I will have more 15 hours a week to myself once the kids go to school. This past school season I only had 5 hours a week of alone time. 5 hours spread over 7 days = no alone time.

My favorite aunt is: Sadly, I don' t have a favorite aunt. My mom and my dad only had brothers. My dad's brother is the only one who married but we haven't been in touch in years. Two phone calls in the span of 18 years doesn't really equate to a relationship. My favorite aunt is probably a friend's aunt. Aunt Maxine rocks!

I have a hard time understanding: Why people smoke. There seem to be so many better ways to relieve stress. It is an expensive, unhealthy habit that I wish would just go away. It is hard to protect my children's beautiful healthy pink lungs when there are people smoking around them. It smells, stains your teeth, makes your skin look older and can kill you. With all of that it is sometimes shocking that people still smoke. It is one of those things that I wish I could be more opened minded on and before I had children, I had more of a live let live attitude about it. But now that they are here and I don't want them exposed to it, I feel stronger about the no smoking laws.

You know I like you if: I like everyone. It takes a lot for me not to like someone but if I don't speak to you, you can establish that I don't care for you. I don't know how to make nice, smile and shoot the breeze if I have no respect for you.

My ideal breakfast is: Typical American breakfast. Eggs, meat, potatoes and toast!

If you visit my home town: You will see that we have a lot of water.

If you spend the night at my house: You will not be allowed to sleep past 7:00 a.m. My kids are early birds and they can be quiet for a while but when you wake at 6:30 it is hard to stay in one room for long. It is a small house.

The animal I would like to see flying besides birds: I would prefer that all bigger animals stay on the ground. Birds can't control their poop and there is always the possibility of poop on your head. Bigger animals = bigger poop!

I shouldn’t have been:
On this computer, taking this meme for the past 15 minutes while the kids ask for drinks.

Last night I:
Made 2 bracelets and posted them on my Etsy shop (which opens on August

A better name for me would be: Ohhhh, this question is always so hard for me. I like my name and since it is the name my parents gave me, it is the perfect name for me.

I’ve been told I look like: Over 18 years ago I used to hear Susanna Hoffs, now I hear I look like my mother from family members.

If I could have any car, it would be: Something that runs, gets loads of miles to the gallon and is paid off!
