Take 5 Tuesday July 22nd 2008

I gotta say, silly as the idea of memes can get after a while, this little breather really helps to cleanse the deep thought palette before my next exciting adventure in writing. So, here we go-Tuesday July 22nd...

5 snacks that you have stashed in your desk drawer.

5 things that people are always surprised to find out about you.
-I wanted to be a wife and mother when I grew up
-I prefer solitude and silence to social situations (But, I throw the best parties)
-I am very sensitive and cry easily
-I have a long lived weird crush on Snoop Dogg
-I don't know what else there is; I rock-'nough said.

5 new inventions you would like to see in the future.
-The manic brain "Off" switch
-The talkative child "Off" switch"
-The middle aged metabolism "On" switch
-The ability to "orb" teens home at curfew
-Lying ass politicians radar

5 of your earliest memories.
-Standing in the center of the circle at my 2nd birthday party and dancing while the kids around me sang
-Learning and using the word "obstinate" ad nauseam (age 6)
-Kicking Carol Hom's ass in the 4th grade Spelling Bee; she was a phenom!
-Singing John Cougar songs out the window of the school library after hours with my BFF Mona Yip (age 10)
-Getting these black patent leather shoes w/suede toes and metallic gold bows on them. They were way too small, but the only size they had left. They hurt like a bitch...I probably said that too. (somewhere between 10 and 12)

5 things you would never do.
-forsake my marriage vows
-abandon my responsibilities as a mother
-deliberately harm another living creature
-forget the road I traveled on to get this far
-stop traveling the road

Wow! Are we like, secretly sisters separated at birth or something??? I read through this entire list and kept thinking, "Me, too!" Well, except for the secret crush on Snoop Dogg...

Rocki's Rock 'n Beads said...

Great list! Let me know if the "The talkative child "Off" switch" is ever invented ;)

Love your list of new inventions!

And the fact that you used the name John Cougar (Not John Cougar Mellencamp or John Mellencamp...) Do you know all the words to Jack and Diane?

Hmmmm, I might have to jack this meme to use on my blog. I don't have a secret crush on Snoop Dogg, but I do have a not-so-secret crush on Ice Cube. Old school, scowling, hard ass Ice Cube, not the "Are We There Yet?" Ice Cube. Love your answers!

Thanks all. The Snoop Dogg crush is just the weirdest thing ever-he is not my type at all...but I'm crushin' on him.

Torrance-I have my 'shining' moments!

Charmaine-But of course I know "the little dity 'bout Jack & Diane"... in its entirety.

Have at it Mequet!

This is my favourite, "The ability to "orb" teens home at curfew", because it would be highly useful in my life too.

OMG! Snoop Dog! Meee, toooo! I mean really, looking at him as a whole he's not.......conventionally pretty. But I have had crushes on several whom most would describe as "homely". *giggle*
