@MissBoPeep:  You must have been a very entreprenurial child! That is hilarious. How on earth did you catch a chipmunk?!

@Mrs.KMM:  Have you done the Polar Bear swim recently? I can’t imagine!

Hmm. I don’t know if I am that interesting…

I have a small tattoo on one shoulder of a Celtic knot. A lot of people don’t know I have it just because I tend to dress somewhat conservatively. I did it for my 20th birthday both as a tribute to the spiritual connection I have felt to Celtic history and landscapes and also because I wanted to do something unexpected. People (like my mom) said I would regret it, but I love it.

I consider myself somewhat cowardly, but I have traveled all over Europe on my own.

I think I am allergic to shellfish because I had a bad reaction to a seafood spring roll but I am not 100% sure. Just to be safe, I never eat crab, lobster, or shrimp. It would suck if I found out I was depraving myself of it my whole life, but I get scared that if I tried it again, I would stop breathing or something.

@couawilou:  I know everyone asks me that question lol. First time I fell out of a tree when I was 6 lol. Then they never healed right because I was a 6 year old who was told to stay still. Then skiing and jetski. Lol. I’m the worst, but I’ve never broken any other bones in my body! Also the most recent was I had a really bad cough and was sleeping and apparently I coughed to hard while I was turning and broke another one! It’s still healing = /

@turkey22:  i never dipped them but mcdonald’s fries and a vanilla shake were my “go to” when i had a hangover.  worked every time.  my son loved it.  he was getting a treat b/c mommy drank too much the night before.  (he never really knew).  i told him it was because he was a good boy.

@leeshabee:  i’ve never broken a bone either.

 

my mother used to dress my older sister and i in the same clothes all of the time.  we hated it.  everyone thought we were twins.

my mother also kept our hair long, down our backs. i hated it.  in high school i became rebellious and went to the mall and cut it all off like pat benatar.  i’ve pretty much had it short since.  funny, b/c my grandmother always cut my mother’s hair short and she wanted it long.  my mother still has long hair and refuses to cut it.  when my grandmother passed away 7 yrs ago, i suggested to my mom that she cut her hair for the funeral b/c grandma would like that.  she just laughed and said, “nice try”.

@chocolatecoveredstrawberry: It’s been a few years – late in college was probably my last one.  I would absolutely still do one though.  I’m just not typically somewhere cold for New Years anymore.

@couawilou:  Hope everything gets better for you!

My dog used to pull me on my rollerblades.

I can do an evil monkey laugh.

When I was a little kid I used to eat milkbones.  Yes, the dog treats.  When my mom and I were going through some of my old things several years ago we found a little purse stuffed full of them!

Okay, I’m gonna go with funny childhood stories.

I have a sister who is about 6 years older than I am.  When I was 2 or 3, we were sitting in her room watching a movie and I was (inexplicably) playing with a sock full of marbles.  We got into an argument and she pushed me and knocked me off the bed. So I hit her in the head with the sock full of marbles.  Naturally, she gets mad and yells out “I’M GONNA KILL YOU!!!”  Because I’m smart and didn’t want to die, I ran into the living room where my parents were.  She ran after me, death in her eyes.  Our parents break us up and ask what happens and the conversation went like this:
Sis: “SHE HIT ME!!”
Me: “She hit me first!”
Sis: “But look…”  And showed them the huge knot on her head.
My response:  “…I only hit her with a sock.”
Sis: “BUT IT WAS FULL OF MARBLES!”

And, to this day, most of the time if we get into a silly fight, my argument-ending statement is “I only hit you with a sock…” and we both start laughing and the fight is forgotten.

Hmm…

My fist word was NO and by age two my dad said whenever anyone tried to help all I said was “NO I DO”

I somehow managed to date all the boys that lived on my street… 12 to 15 years after I moved away

For our first date Fiance took me to half price books then Steak and Shake and then we got a bunch of glow sticks  from Halloween clearance and hung them in his car… best night of my life. The we now joke that we are in a 3some relationship since the waitress at steak and shake knows us by name and has been there since night 1…. I think we go there to much lol

The scariest moment in my life was my Junior year of HS when I got lost on the tour of Aushwitz amongst a bunch on nuns on Easter Monday. I almost missed the bus. Thank God for Role call.

Let’s see:

My mother remarried when I was 6.  I got two new sisters, and one of them was only nine months younger than me.  My parents dressed us like twins a lot.  Matching swimsuits, matching summer dresses, things like that.  And people actually thought we were twins, which is odd because the only thing alike about us was our blond hair and fair skin.

I was once locked in a box with spiders.  I’m terrified of them to this day and the other day I nearly fell screaming my head off trying to get away (on crutches) from a daddy long leg spider.  Weird thing was, I used to play with daddy long leg spiders. 

I love everything holistic, and in an effort to stop worsening fibromyalgia and not end up like my sister who has the worst case her doctors have ever seen, I’m about to embark on a 92-day juice feast.

Hm.

I was an extra in Evan Almighty when I was in high school.

A couple of years ago I won 2 all-expense paid trips to Las Vegas on the SAME DAY. They were for the same event so I had to forfeit one of the prizes.

I once got my family kicked out of a baseball game. We were in a suite and my brother and I were spitting on the people below us :/ We were 5 and 6 years old.
