Way more than you wanted to know...

Yes, I'm that bored.

In between cleaning up kiddo vomit and filling out job apps, I've decided to sit down and play for a bit.

I found this on Erica's blog, Blissful Entropy. Go check her out, good stuff!

(I hope you don't mind that I whittled it down a little bit, Erica, I have a short attention span at times ;))

Have I:

Gone on a blind date: A few, yes. That's a road I never plan to go down again.

Skipped school: I skipped more of my senior year than I should admit. One time Rachel and I skipped and headed up to Bedford thinking that we'd meet up with my boyfriend at the time. Little did we know that he was skipping his last class of the day.

Watched someone die: Yes. My Grandmother and countless patients.

Been to Canada: Yes. It's about 45 minutes up the road. My one bit of advice is to convert your money ASAP when you cross over.

Been on a plane: I have, but I'd rather drive. That whole falling out of the sky thing scares the crap out of me.

Been lost: Yes. And trust me when I say that Downtown Detroit by the Ambassador bridge is not a good place to be lost.

Been on the opposite side of the country: Yes. Seattle and California. Gorgeous country. I'd love to live there.

Swam in the ocean: I count myself fortunate enough to have almost drowned in both the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans. GO me!

Had your booze taken away by the cops: I've not had booze taken away by the cops. But I have been taken away from booze by cops. If that makes sense. I did some stupid things in college.

Cried yourself to sleep: More than I care to admit.

Recently colored with crayons: As recently as yesterday. It really is excellent therapy.

Sang Karaoke: Not only have I sung karaoke... I own a karaoke setup complete with more than 10,000 songs.

Paid for a meal with coins only: I've paid for a few lunches off the dollar menu at McDonalds with quarters. That's what happens when you forget your purse at home and you need to eat.

Cheated on an exam: I've never cheated on an exam.

Laughed until some kind of beverage came out of your nose: Yes. And it hurts when Beer comes out your nose. It really burns.

Caught a snowflake on your tongue: Yes.

Danced in the rain: Yes to dancing in the rain. Yes to kissing in the rain. And I didn't melt.

Written a letter to Santa Claus: Yup.

Been kissed under the mistletoe: I have.

Watched the sunrise with someone you care about: Well I thought I cared about him at the time.

Been arrested: I plead the fifth.

Blown bubbles: Yup. The bottled kind, and also the snot kind, from laughing too hard after crying (Me too!!! - Epi)

Gone ice-skating: It's been awhile... One too many injuries to my ankle. I'm one rolled ankle away from surgery.

Been skinny dipping outdoors: I have, actually. Way too much fun.

Ever been on TV? More than one person should be. That's what happens when you have family members who work for the local TV station. I've been in three commercials, and more news stories than I can count.

Ever been in a car accident? Uggggg. Yes. Two with Matt, One with the other Matt, one with my Mom, one with Ron where I mowed down a phone pole and took the power out to a few city blocks, one by myself, one with my son, and one that I can't talk about on here. Of those accidents, three were my fault.

Favorite holiday? Christmas. Hands down.

Favorite food? Steak baby. Make it bloody.

Favorite smells? The smell of my daughter's hair right after I wash it. Fresh cut grass. The ocean. The apple orchard.

What do you do to relax? Read a good book, write, head outside with the camera.

One favorite song?
Bless the Broken Road by Rascal Flatts

Longest shift you’ve worked at a job?:
60 hours straight. I'll never do it again.

Sex And The City

One thing you never leave the house without:

Five or six times

How do you like your eggs?
Over easy with toast please :)
