A little meme

Kaelah over at Little Chief Honeybee put up a meme post yesterday and I couldn't resist. Like her I used to be ALL over Live Journal (I was actually really surprised when I abandoned that 10 year old chronicle of my life for this space). I have always loved doing these kinds of things, and reading other peoples. Travis actually found I like had a big crush on him through one of these things (By looking up the mentioned live journal and seeing all the stuff about him, with a code name of course. Haha. I was 16! Give me a break! So without further ado....

1. What is the first thing you do when you wake up?
If it is a work day the first thing I do is take the dogs out and make a smoothie. If I'm off, I usually lay in bed for an hour or two and read. I LOVE to do that.

2. What is the 3rd picture on your phone? Share it!
Aw, it is a sweet photo of me and Phyllis. I'm pretty sure I took this when I got home from work one day and I had taken the dogs out. Phyllis does not like to walk in, so she just waits in the yard until you come pick her up. I've even tried bribing her with treats!

3. What TV show are you most excited about returning this Fall?
I don't watch anything when it is actually on,  I'm usually a season or two behind. I am excited for RuPaul's Drag Race to return in January though!

4. What is something really popular that you secretly (or not so secretly) loathe?
(EDIT: Travis brought it to my attention that I forgot to answer this question! Oops!) I do not like Dr. Who. At all. I watched probably 40 episodes with Travis and just couldn't get into it. And I WANT too. Because almost everyone I know loves it. I just don't care about the Dr.

5. Do you have any pets? Tell us about them! Bonus points for pictures.
Phyllis - 7ish year old three legged pug
Priscilla - 10ish year old mostly blind mostly deaf pug
 Scampi - 10ish year old Siamese Torti cat, the sassiest of them all
Scout - 3 year old tabby spot cat. she was pretty feral when we got her. she will let me pet her sometimes. she is sweet though, never hisses or bites. Unless Travis is chasing her to put flea stuff on her.
Murray - 5.5 year old tuxedo boy. we got him as a kitten right when we got married.

6. If you could put together one outfit that represents you perfectly, what would it be?
It would be a dress with horizontal stripes, one color would be black, and it would have a retro cut, with a flared out skirt. i would be wearing terrible beat up converse low tops, my red glasses, and some kind of weird brooch.

7. What is your favorite adult beverage?
I hardly ever drink. If I do, I usually get a Cape Cod.

8. What is your favorite guilty pleasure?
I'm not really embarrassed by anything I love. Maybe it would be that I LOVE to get my karaoke machine out when I'm home alone and sing pop hits for HOURS. Or maybe I am a little embarrassed that sometimes I read fan fiction.

9. What are 3 positive words to describe you?
Sassy, quick to laugh, kind.

10. What is your favorite Friday afternoon/evening activity?
I work retail so Friday isn't that significant to me. But if I am going to off on Saturday, I like to go out late on Friday night, to PLAY, which is the best drag bar in town. If I am out past midnight you can guarantee that is where I am.

11. A day in the life: What does you typical day look like?
Up at 6 am, let out the dogs, make breakfast, go to work for 8 hours. Come home and eat a snack and let myself watch one episode of whatever I am currently watching on Netflix (I just finished Sister Wives season 3). Sometimes it turns into three episodes. Try to get something done around the house, usually cleaning the kitchen or folding laundry. Make dinner or get Travis to go get take out. Pack my lunch, get in to bed and read until I fall asleep. Or stay on the computer way too late.

12. If you could live anywhere else in the world, where would it be?
New Zealand!

13. You've got a whole day to yourself...what will you do?
I would sleep in, then read in bed for a few hours. I would hit a bunch of estate sales, then come home and photograph my finds for the blog. Then I would go to the movies alone, and pick up Baja Burrito to eat in the theater. Then I would come home and look at blogs for a long time and wouldn't have to share the computer. I would eat junk for dinner then take a long bath and read.

14. Dream job?
Vintage buyer, scouring the country for cool stuff for people.

15. Least favorite chore?
Scrubbing the bathroom. Of scooping the litter boxes. Terrible.

16. When do you most feel like a rock star?
When I get a whole room of our house organized and clean. someday I'll have the whole house perfect at once and I will probably faint.

17. What is something you are currently trying to improve within yourself?
Getting off the computer and getting motivated. I have a bad habit of sitting here for hours and hours a day and let things pile up at home. I would love to figure out what I'm really passionate about and put plans into motion, but it is easier to just read fun blogs all day. I also need to get motivated to clean out our front room and make it the western themed guest room of my dreams!


  1. After reading you and kaelahs , now I totally feel the need to do this. I used to rule these on myspace. They make me nostalgic for a simpler time...2005

  2. i...i read fan fictions too, old ones.

  3. Hahaha. Fan fiction and secret karaoke machine. Girl, you are so rad.

  4. Great pictures and interesting to know more about you. I cant sing a lick so you would never catch me doing karaoke but its cool you do it. I say all the supposedly embarassing are what making people interesting

    urban hounds

  5. That was so fun! Now I want to do one :)

  6. Good job. It was a challenging task just to complete a meme about yourself and be honest. Good for you for putting it out there and I think you sound very interesting. But I already thought that anyway :->

  7. I used to read fanfiction too, mostly Smallville and Torchwood because those shows were not going the way I wanted them to !


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave me a comment!
