Getting To Know Each Other

1What is your favorite color? Pink is my signature color, but any color that is bright and cheerful is great

2. Share one or more of your talents.  I have some many..lol…but my gift of snark is by far my greatest talent. I’m

3. If you were spending the day getting to know someone new, where would you want to go?  We would probably do something we both enjoy.

4. What is your favorite meal? Tacos I LOVE them, and frankly I don’t eat them enough for my liking.

5.  Do you prefer to text or talk?  I’m dangerous on the telephone. I will use a battery up. My brain works too fast for texting.

6. Share something about yourself that might surprise someone that you’re getting to know.  I fall asleep listening to podcasts every night; they lull me to sleep every night.

7. Do you color your hair? I used to and was always frustrated when the color wouldn’t take, turns out when you take high dosages of prednisone it’s recommended that you don’t perm or color your hair…. I’m no longer taking prednisone as part of my anti-rejection regimen, but I haven’t dyed my hair since before my last liver transplant… but maybe I’ll do that this summer…

8. Do you wear glasses or contacts?  Both, day to day I wear contacts, but at night when I’m in bed, watching TV or on the computer I have my glasses on….I’m so blind .

 9. What is your favorite breakfast food?  It varies week to week… but right now I’m totally digging this blueberry muffin oatmeal… holy cow is it good                Image

 10. Would your friends say that you’re sarcastic?  Absolutely!!! Have you seen the name of my blog?? Don’t believe me look at my favorite T-shirt

Image
11. Do you prefer salty or sweet?  Depends on the craving…

12. What is the first thing you notice about the opposite sex?  The way they carry themselves. Confidence is such a turn on, it will always trump looks

13. What is the last movie you watched?  Pitch Perfect… such a fun movie, I sang EVERY song

14.  Are you religious?  I am, I defiantly believe in God. There was a point where I was literally feeling my body shut down, I was feeling myself slowly dying, and you either fight it or make peace with it. I had made peace with my life and was just tired of suffering, THEN to be brought back and given a second or third chance, something happens to you.  There was a reason why my life has been saved (twice!). Maybe there is work for me here, in any case you don’t leave an experience like that without believing in a higher power.

15Are you a neat freak, a slob, or somewhere in between? When I was younger I was a slob, my bedroom was a serious fire hazard. I am not a neat freak, but I like for things to be orderly. But the bathroom and kitchen have to be clean…

16. Share something from your bucket list that you hope to do someday?  Going on a European vacation with my mom

17. Are you a risk taker, or do you prefer to play it safe. I play it safe, and it’s something that I desperately want to change about myself. I need to take more risks in my life

18. Have you ever worn braces?  No, but I’ve always wanted them

19. Would you rather spend an evening at a theater or at a club?  Oh, definitely the theater, I’ll go to a club but honestly there is no mental stimulation there for me.

20. If you could have three wishes, what would one of them be?  I would defiantly wish to be healthier, having two transplants ….. It’s not something I would wish on anyone. But I haven’t been “healthy” since I was 19. And at 35 I wonder what my life would have been like had I been a “normal and healthy” person.

Downton Downers

My lovely PBS affiliate likes to give us two hours of Downton Abbey every Sunday, and I used to love it. I think I’m getting to the point where I’m seriously over the show. Every single time I watch the show a new person annoys me. Currently on my list of people who are annoying me

  • Mary Crawley-Crawley – she’s bitch and snarky (but I love bitchy and snarky women and she killed a man with her vagina, but she was way too gung-ho about the Swire fortune for my tastes)
  • Mary Crawley’s smug tan husband … really this is a period drama, you’re supposed to be pasty white (Julian Fellows, I blame you for that!!)
  • Ma Crawley – it’s time for her to find a new hobby, first it was the hospital, now it’s saving prostitutes .. NEWSFLASH teaching them how to sew is not gonna save them from the streets….can we find her a boyfriend or something?
  • Lord Grantham – I think he ran Downton Abbey to the ground on purpose, He doesn’t do anything all day but talk to his valet and play with his dog, he didn’t have time to properly look over DA’s financial records? Come on man…. that’s the one job you have.
  • Thomasthe bitchy valet, formally known as the evil footman- You got exactly what you wanted, you’re Lord Grantham’s valet. You don’t even go out and in the back and smoke with O’Brien, I think you’re bitchiness toward O’Brien and her freakishly tall nephew stems in sexual frustration
  • Bates – Why is he even still here, He’s in prision it’s boring there, and I’m starting to think he really did kill his wife… I’m over the whole storyline
  • Anna – How is it possible that she still has a job, she does NOTHING!
  • Sir Anthony Strallen – SERIOUSLY? SERIOUSLY…..Edith is about to blow up, and all you have is a car you can’t drive anymore and one good arm to keep you warm….

I’m pretty much expecting everyone to be on this list by season’s end. except Edith… I’m totally #TeamEdith!!!

But naturally I will continue to watch… what else will I have to complain about, but I am always thankful Up Yours, Downstairs! They always say what I’m thinking

Interesting Things


What is the last movie you saw in a theater?  In November I won a contest from FX, where I received 25 free movie tickets and a 250 gift card to use at concessions. Needless to say I spent the entire month eating popcorn and watching movies. But I think the last movie I saw was Breaking Dawn pt.2 with my aunt because she wanted to see it (I didn’t mind seeing it for a second time)
How old were you when you had your first kiss? I don’t remember how old I was, I think I was 10 or 11. I did it on a dare, then the person who dared me ran and told my mother then I got in trouble. Needless to say it was a long time before I kissed another boy.
Share the coolest thing that you’ve done so far in 2013.  I signed up to do the Susan G. Komen 3 Day….

What kind of cell phone do you use? Do you love it? I wanted an iPhone… I’m jealous of anyone who has one… so the plan was to let my contract run out and move over to AT&T… BUT my mom and I got really good deals on Samsung Galaxy The screen is HUGE and I love it… I’m so happy and I love it… and it doesn’t hurt that I only got it 30 bucks!!! (Who doesn’t love a bargin). Do I still want an iPhone… ask me in about 6 months…
How many times do you plan to workout this week? I plan to workout at least 5 times for 30 minutes or longer.
What is your favorite movie from the 80′s? John Hughes’ movies defined the 80’s and really ushered me into adulthood. I can’t think of the 80’s without thinking of his movies.
If you could choose one character from a TV show or a movie to fall head 
Imageover heels for you, who would it be? Picture this ….. it’s 1995 I’m a senior in high school at the height (at least I thought) of my sexual awareness , I’m sitting in the movie theatre and this scene comes one the screen, I am dead, thus beginning my love with Tristan  

If you could eat one food every day for the rest of your life without gaining any weight as a result, what would you choose? I’m so finicky I don’t even think I could eat something every day I would have to switch at least once a week.

What is your favorite flower? I actually have two favorite flowers : peonies and lilies

Did you watch the Golden Globes last night?  No, I can’t watch any award shows I don’t have the patience for them. I can find out what everyone wore and who won what on the Internet. Besides I was watching Downton Abbey and NOTHING gets between me and Downton!
