wow i sure am list-y today.

k, so Kat over at is doing a 'get-o-know-you' post. i thought, instead of being oh like everyone else in the world and just COMMENT on her blog, i'm going to strike out and be different and post on MY blog.

these are her questions, and i encourage everyone to answer these bc they're fun:

It's time again for our weekly getting to know you session. And time again for me to wrack my brains for some questions.

Do you like to camp? Or is the Holiday Inn roughing it enough? i like to camp, yes, but only if i have an air mattress, a real pillow and good food. oh, and a car, in case it starts raining. (yeah. cuz that one time two years ago? SO NOT FUN to wake up floating on your air mattress like you're on a raft.)

Do you want to be buried or cremated? i don't want to answer this one. i feel like i'll be jinxing myself.

What is your soap box issue? (Now, don't get on your soap box. I just want to know what issue will send you up there) probably gay marriage, abortion, gun control. now try to guess where i stand on all three! hahaha!

You are going to a costume party. What will you wear? well in real life? probably the halloween costume from two years ago. candy striper. bc it was free, bc i don't have to spend any more money, and bc it's cute. if i had an unlimited budget? probably a sexy pirate done up with garters and a bodice and an old-fashioned gun, a cop, or a flapper.

Tomorrow you MUST change jobs. No more stay at home mom. No more teacher. No more nurse. No more fill in the blank. What new career will you start? ouch. no idea. i would say, go back to school and study ______. that's cheating. i know. but i really don't know what i want to be when i grow up. paralegal? teacher? who knows.

What was the last movie you saw? forgetting sarah marshall. and seriously? take my word for it. FORGET IT. it was SO not all it was cracked up to be.

What one room in your house would you like to re-decorate? KITCHEN!!!! amen.

When you were growing up, did your family decorate for holidays other than Christmas? oh for sure! my mom passed that lovely trait onto me, too. i soooo love craft stores. she is a wreath-makin-MAVEN. seriously.

What is the oldest thing in your house? hm. probably the elephant from my grandfather. he passed away over 10 years ago, and he collected elephant figurines his entire life. his very first one he got when he was 5, when he was still in Denmark. it is one of my most treasured possessions. it's an elephant piggy bank, so to speak, and my grandmother gave it to me when he passed. it means more to me than almost anything. and he is why elephants are my favorite things ev-ar.

Pick one: cruise ship, powerboat, sailboat, rowboat, kayak, or inner tube? sailboat. definitely. bc i LOVE being on the water, and i love how natural it is. have i ever been on one? no. so i may change my tune once i do board one. but my father is a licensed sailing instructor, and he sort of rubbed off on me.

Hey! Thanks for the shout out - and for answering my inane questions. You should have said hello :-) And now, I have to ask, because I am insanely nosy or have rampant curiosity or something - how did you find my blog?
