50 Questions. Because I Love the BeJellybeans Out of These Kinds of Things

Not gonna lie.
When I got tagged by Alison Lee  (one of my blogging heroes) to do this 50 Questions post, I did the Chandler Bing dance.
You know, the one I do when you comment.
Wink, wink. I love these types of things more than what is probably socially acceptable.
I could spend HOURS running the answers in my head.
Which could mean one of many things?
I love me a list.
I love talking about myself ( HELLO BLOG).
I love reminiscing.
I love talking about myself.

  1. Wait, I'm just wondering why you tagged me specifically for that question? Does that mean you are crazy interested in that particular answer or that you only want me to answer that one and not the other 49? 😉


  2. Trying once again to comment because OH. MY. GOSH. one of my daughters middle names is Marie and one is Mary. We hesitated slightly like, isnt this actually the same name just a slightly different pronunciation, but then we were all "WHATEVVS" bc it HAS to be this name and it's kinda cool that they have the same middle name right?BAM. now I know it is, of course.More proof we are soulmates in a totally non creepy or stalkery (stalkerish?? Stalkery??) Way.Lake Lure!! THERe'S A BIG OLD METAL SLIDE in the middle of the lake. Because hello, water slide!!!


  3. Hee! I LOVE YOU!Fun fact which has nothing to do with me: my sister worked in a Thai restaurant in London when she was a student. She served Neneh Cherry once.


  4. Oh geeze, now when Flat kari comes my daughter will claim SHE put the tv on the Duggars!!! (and I was a little afraid you were picking Luke and Laura from GH)
