I just want to say, I love all your blogs; but you people monopolize a lot of my free time because I'm compelled to read them all. I mean that's a lot of blogs to run through. I must break them down into days or something. Quit being so damned interesting!!!

I was tagged by Teri (My Comfy Chair). You know the rule... if you are tagged you are going to play along!! So here are my "three" things. Even if you aren't tagged, please feel free to play anyways!

Three Things That Scare Me:
1) Flying
2) Outliving my kids
3) Outliving my husband

I hate flying. I have this nonsensical fear of falling out of the plane. Not jumping, just falling out of it. I don't know why. Funny thing is my mom has the EXACT same thing going on! OK weirdness is on the X chromosome on that one.

Three People Who Make Me Laugh:
1) Jarrett (hubby)
2) My kids (can't just have two and not all three)
3) My brother Rob

My husband is the only person I know who shares the same sense of warped humor as me. Good match. We always joke that no one else would "get" us. So we're lucky. And well let me see; we had three kids so you know they have to share our same oddness (eg: Our youngest used to drive her babywalker with her teeth; it was a spaceship and she was pretty much an alien with a teatowel driving her walker). And my brother - well he's crazy too. We have a long running joke about Billy Bee honey nuts. He's getting married next August, you know those suckers will be coming out at the reception.

Three Things I Love:
1) My Husband
2) My Kids
3) My Parents

Can I get a collective "AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW"

Three Things I Hate:
1) Liars
2) Pedophiles
3) Racists

Man can I just say, I LOATHE pedophiles. I mean most people do; but I really hate them. Useless sacks of crap. Racists aren't too far behind. They can be rounded up into the same crapbag as the pedophiles. And liars... I mean serious lies and not ones about shirt sucking.

Three Things I Don’t Understand:
1) Why people hate
2) Why bad things happen to good people
3) Why the world can't get along (give peace a chance man!)

Aren't these all problems in society? Yes. World doesn't get along, because there is so much hate and mistrust. Ignorance mostly. Religion in the number one catalyst for global war. Interesting no? And the bad things happening to undeserving people is complete crap. I get the whole "everything happens for a reason" thing I guess; but I think all that should be reserved for people who actually are wastes of skin.

Three Things On My Desk:
1) A cornmeal muffin my hubby baked
2) My daily planner
3) 700 file folders I never file

I never file things away. One of hubby's pet peeves about me; that and dripping water on the floor after my shower. Maybe that's why I didn't make a great legal assistant huh? (not the shower part; if that'd been the case maybe I would've gotten more raises). And btw, my hubby makes a mean cornmeal muffin.

Three Things I’m Doing Right Now:
1) Waiting for kids to eat
2) Waiting for hubby to come home from work
3) Doing this list LOL

Well DERRRRR obviously I'm doing this list. Kids take eons to eat one hotdog but they can snarffle down an ice cream cone in 30 seconds. And my hubby; well I just go nuts in the last 20 min's before he comes home because it's almost time for me to seek out my kid-free sanctuary. SANCTUARY!!!!!!!

Three Things I Want To Do Before I Die:
1) Watch my children grow up
2) Meet my grandchild
3) Celebrate my 50th anniversary with hubby

Don't think these are too much to ask for. I would go happy knowing everyone I loved was ok and happy too.

Three Things I Can Do:
1) Write eloquently (LOL that was a joke btw)
2) Paint
3) Play piano

I actually AM still writing a book (for the past 100 years it seems); but I'm going to finish it one day. I go on bursts of creativity. Lately those bursts aren't happening. But I'm more than half way through so that's SOMETHING. My hubby is the only one that's really read it; and he thinks it's great. He may just be saying that because he knows who butters his cornmeal muffin ;) I do paint; I'm painting something for hubby's office. And yes I do play piano (since I was about...6). Ta-Da - I'm artsy fartsy!

Three Things I Can’t Do:
1) Play tennis
2) Put my foot to my nose (who would want to anyways?)
3) Go skydiving (I'm too scared)

I suck at tennis LOL. Seriously not my bag. I once played with old boyfriend and actually smashed him in the nuts. It was an accident - but looking back I can't say I'm sad it happened LOL. I am not bendy really - in part of curvature in my spine from when I was born. Who wants to smell their toes anyways? Skidiving... ok for a gal scared of falling out of a plane, this would seem a bad idea. Hubby used to go (that freak), but he doesn't anymore. He's tried to get me to go; no dice bud! He suggested a hot air balloon ride the other day... is he on crack?

Three Things I Think You Should Listen To:
1) Your children
2) Your intuition
3) God

Always ALWAYS listen to your kids. They always have great things to say. Funny things too. But if you dont' listen to them now, don't bitch later when they don't want to talk to you. Intuition - definately listen to. No one knows better than your gutt (except when it comes to cheesecakes). And God. Don't get offended if you are an atheist or something please. But for me, God is in my life and He's the one I go to in times of need and struggle. No better sounding board if He's in your heart.

Three Things You Should Never Listen To:
1) Satan (that's obvious LOL)
2) Any politician
3) MC Hammer

LOL dont' listen to Satan - he's not a good guy. LOL. Anyone that has hoofs for feet has to be bad news. Politicians; they are from hell too and probably have hoofs in those expensive wingtips they where. I just BET they do!!! MC Hammer - you can't touch this and you really shouldn't anyways!! Nothing good comes from a dude that wears puffy ass pants.

Three Things I’d Like To Learn:
1) Tango
2) Horseback riding
3) How to put folded laundry away LOL

I love dance!! I'm jealous of people that look good when they dance. I don't suck at dancing; I just don't know how to tango or cha-cha or anything fancy. I'd like to learn. My husband isn't fancy-foot gifted... but he's gifted in other ways so he's forgiven. Horses I love horses!!! I don't want to learn jumping though. Eventually I want to buy a horse. Folding laundry... this is my arch nemesis!! It haunts me. I can wash it, fold it but never manage to put it away. I know I'm pathetic!

Three Favorite Foods:
1) Seafood
2) Steak
3) Spinach dip

If it came from the sea, I'm loving it. If it came from a cow, I'm loving it. If it's spinach dip, I love that too. What I don't love you want to know? Liver (gross), brussel sprouts (gag), and lamb(baaaa).

Three Things I Regret:
1) First boyfriend
2) Giving it away to first boyfriend
3) Not kicking first boyfriend in the balls

Can I just publically say ASSHOLE!! (Disclaimer: You may be offended by language content in this post. If not; you must know my old boyfriend or had one similar to him). I didn't kick him in the balls, but I did hit him accidentally with a tennis ball remember? Wooo ha ha ha!!!

Three People I Tag:
1) Mamalee
2) SlackerMom
3) Slick

MamaLee - I lurve you!! You know I have to tag you!!! Slackermom - I love the cut of your jib lady!!! And Slick, I know you'll have something offensive to write so why stiffle you? LOL.

Fun lists! Now I am going to be getting strange looks all day as I walk around humming MC Hammer! And it is all your fault!

Chrissy said...

You Can't Touch This! The video is actually playing through my head right now! I can just seeing him dancing in those ridiculous pants (which were crazy back then too)!
This was a great list - I just participate.

OMG Elle, I had my speakers up when I dropped by and hearing "Can't Touch This" was like a time warp to some really FUN days, lol. Thank you for that. I love all the info in your post, we have a lot in common.

Maria said...

I know. I have to split my blog reads into three day shifts because otherwise I would sit here for HOURS every night and nothing would get done.

Not that it really does anyway.

Nice to learn so much about you....

These are really good answers.. Perhaps one day I'll leave the snark out of a post..

Naw.. Then no one would believe that I wrote it!
