Random Nothingness...

I know some bloggers don't think a page full of memes or quizzes makes up a blog. So be it. I spend enough time in real life spouting off, so this is what I like to do to de-stress. Like it or not, I don't really give a fuck. And here we go...

What’s the greatest thing that happened to you today?
It's still early, but so far it was spending time alone at work with The Man. Even when we're all work, I love being around him.

How many TRUE best friends do you have?

Would you rather get up early or sleep in?
Get up early because if I sleep in, I feel crappy all day for some reason.

Tell me about the shirt you’re wearing?
It's all white, short sleeved, and cleavage baring. Oh, and it has a collar too. I don't own too many shirts that have collars - maybe 4 or 5.

What are you excited about right now?
I'm looking forward to the football game tonight. Can't say I'm excited about it. Okay, maybe a little. I love football.

Would you rather smile over a lie or cry over the truth?
When you find out it was a lie, it makes you feel stupid for believing it in the first place. So, I'd rather shed a tear over the truth and get on with it.

What’s on your bedroom floor right now?
Let me see - shoes, carpet(duh!), flashlight, pillows, purse, and a slew of other crap.

Who’s the last person you got into a argument with?

Colorado - preferably close to Bear Lake.

Could you go a day without eating?
It might make me light-headed, but I could do it. Oh, and I would definitely be moody. I do love my food.

How much do looks matter to you in a guy/girl?
They matter, but it's not the most important thing. It's part of the attraction.

Do you like anybody right now?
Like like? The Man - always The Man!

When was the last time you had your hair cut?
I cut a little off the ends a couple weeks ago.

Would you rather be mad or sad?
Mad, because when I'm sad I get all quiet and don't want to do a damn thing. At least when I'm mad, I go around stomping and slamming shit and spouting my mouth off. Other people would probably prefer me to be sad.

Does it take a lot to make you cry?
You didn't hear this here, but I'm a softie and cry easily. That's one thing that really embarrasses me. I want so bad to be a hard ass and it's too damn difficult!

Whats the best feeling in the world?
Being with The Man.

Are you close with your mom?

Saving the world, what do you think?!

Do you get bored easily?
Not really. There's always a lot to do around here - being bored isn't an option.

What’s something that someone can do that really bothers you?
I really hate it when someone is being all nice to you and insulting you at the same time. The Man's mom is a master at this.

Did you ever want to change your name when you were younger?
I still want to change my name.

Do you wish you were famous?
Who says I'm not?!

Do you make a wish at 11:11?
Ummm, no. Am I supposed to?

When you go to the beach do you swim or lay out more?
Haven't really been to the beach in a long time. When I used to go, I'd swim swim swim. I don't 'lay out'.

Who’s the last text message you received from and what did it say?
I was using The Man's cell and texting Movie Girl. She texted back with 'okie doke'.

What are you freakishly obsessed with?

What’s your favorite song at the moment?

Do you like going to the mall to shop or just shopping online?
I can find what I want faster online, but there's something I like more about actually getting out and hunting it down.

I do have a prescription for anything that would be found, so I'll say pass.

Wanting to tell someone something?
Yes, I'd like to tell The Man that my moodiness this week was more because I've been feeling like I was a bad or selfish person for a decision I made. I know he'd understand, but it's not something I've wanted to talk about.
