48 Questions

I couldn’t think of anything really good to write about today and I threw this in as a draft when I saw Theta Mom’s post just like it (Yes, I borrowed it… she said it was ok). I thought that it was a pretty cool idea any way and was going to create this awesome inforgraphic for it, but that proved to be really time consuming… and I was feeling lazy. I did add some pretty color to it though!

So here you go…. a bunch of random questions and my answers… all about me.

1. Were you named after anyone? 

Why yes I was! Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis

2. When was the last time you cried?

Hmm… I honestly do not remember.

3. Do you like your handwriting?

Yes, I do. I like to write and use a good pen & paper still.

4. What is your favorite lunch meat?

I like the good stuff… maybe some peppered turkey.

5. Do you have kids?

Umm… have you read my blog before? Yes. 4.

6. If you were another person, would you be friends with you?

I think so. Honestly, who would say no?

7. Do you use sarcasm a lot?

Me? Never…. (wait, you can’t hear my tone can you? crap… yes, I use it a lot)

8. Do you still have your tonsils?

No, they threatened to close my throat so they were ripped out when I was 4.

9. Would you like to bungee jump?

No. Never. Not in a million years.

11. Do you untie your shoes when you take them off?

No, because most of them don’t tie.

12. Do you think you are strong?

I suppose that it depends on what you mean when you say strong… physically? I’m okay. Mentally? Depends on the day.

13. What is your favorite ice cream?

Just a plain vanilla. Smooth, creamy, and simple. Now this is not to say that I don’t love a dark, creamy, chocolate… I do! There is just something about vanilla.

    This reminds me of those MySpace surveys that used to go around. I love that you prefer vanilla ice cream but love chocolate for dessert!

    Peppered turkey is my favorite lunch meat! I like it shredded. :) Also, I have a brown car…beige, nondescript, and booooring is how I feel about mine though. I’m giggling at your jammies because I wear the same kind of thing! You’re adorable!

    Fun to learn a little more about you. But you know most scary movies actually have happy endings- sure some subplot people may die, but the lead characters usually survives and makes it out of everything okay– otherwise it truly would be a very scary and disturbing movie.

    I love these question roundups, it’s such a great way to get to know everyone. That’s neat to know the meaning behind your name and I love chocolate too!

    I laughed at the last movie you watched, my kids have now watched it 50 times, which by default means I have too. LOL

    I am too lazy to answer them, but I definitely liked reading your answers! I’m with you on a lot of these! I love the smell of laundry; I love fall, and silence.

    What color are your toenails painted? :) I don’t think any of this reading would judge – I can’t wait to crawl into my flannels.

    This was a lot of fun to read. It’s nice getting to know you better and I like your sense of humor. I think I did something similar years ago. I should do it and compare my answers.

      4 kids is a challenge but thankfully the older two (17 & 13) are mostly self sufficient!

    Pink, peppered turkey and pasta…I think we’d get along just fine. This is a really fun idea!
