Okay... so maybe you've noticed I haven't exactly been Betty Blogger these days.  I've been busy, exhausted, trying to spend time in the "real" world, blah blah blah...  I'm also running low on creative fuel.  Actually the creative fuel is just being sapped by various aspects of my life outside of the virtual community. 

Like weddings for example... Wednesdays post shall be glorious as I will be posting pictures of the bouquets for this weekend's wedding.  Hint...  there are FEATHERS involved.  Go ahead... pee a little...

Anywhoozle - since I have to be awake in T-minus 7 hours and I'm pretty wore out here is a little glimpse of who the lady behind the text is (and I use the term 'lady' very loosely :)

1. Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed?

I used to insist on it being closed - having it open freaked me out.  But now by the time I freefall into bed I don't care so much.

2. Do you take the shampoos and conditioner bottles from hotels?

Ummm... do I have a pulse?  I have a drawer FULL!

3. Do you sleep with your sheets tucked in or out?

I love getting into a properly made bed BUT I usually find myself kicking furiously until my feet are uncovered.  So inevitably out.

4. Would you rather be attacked by a bear or a swarm of bees?

A bear.  I'd like to think it'd be faster.  The thought of bee stings and my throat closing up makes me feel like... my throats closing up.  (**abort thought**abort thought**)

5. Do you have freckles?

Not so much.  But I think they're frickin' adorable.

6. What is your biggest pet peeve?

I'm too affected by the every day goings on around me to pick one.  But right now I'll go with the drama at my workplace.  And yours truly (as previously mentioned) is the resident go-to person to lay everything out on the table.  Why oh why?  I really should be making bank in HR at a big company somewhere...

7. Have you ever peed in the woods?

Yes.  A couple times when I was little.  But since my rustic skills have decreased with age, the last time my husband and I camped in the woods he brought a fold out hunting blind, a homemade toilet seat and dug a hole so I could pee in luxury.  There was even a perfectly placed tree branch to hang our tp on.
SIDENOTE:  I cannot squat and pee without taking off EVERYTHING from the waist down.  I even had to do it in a crowded parking garage in downtown Detroit during a Tigers game.  Sorry to anyone who may have witnessed my indecent exposure.

8. Do you ever dance if there’s no music playing?

Pretty much all the time.

9. Do you chew your pens and pencils?

I'm not gonna lie... I catch myself from time to time.  Then I get completely and utterly grossed out.

10. Is it ok for guys to wear pink?


11. What do you dip a chicken nugget in?

BBQ sauce... and I have been known to throw a fit if I can't.

12. What is your favorite food?

Breadsticks.  I could live off of breadsticks.

13. What movies could you watch over and over and still love?

Clueless, Grease and the Hangover to name a few.

14. Were you ever a boy/girl scout?

Nope.  Hence my inability to survive in wilderness.  But I can knock down some Thin Mint cookies does that count?

15. Can you change the oil on a car?

Yeah its easy.  You go to the nearest drive-up oil change place, put on your best "I'm not a stupid girl" face and go with it.  Voila!  Oil changed in 10 minutes or less!  (But I CAN change my own headlight!)

16. Ever gotten a speeding ticket?

Yeah for going what I genuinely believed was the speed limit. 

17. Ever ran out of gas?

Just once.   Lock my keys in the car?  More times than I can count.

18. Are you lazy?

I used to be and I hated it.  I can't sit still now (yet I'm still fat) and I hate that too. 

19. When you were a kid, what did you dress up as for Halloween?

I think I was a witch a hundred times over, and a clown, and Fred Flinstone and a hippie.

20. How many languages can you speak?

English and ebonics. 

21. Who is better…Leno or Letterman?

Letterman by far.

22. Do you sing in the car?

Yep.  And sometimes I sing AT other drivers.  My mom used to get embarrassed but my feeling was "Now they get to go wherever they're going and say 'you'll never guess what I saw on my way here."  You're welcome random drivers.

23. Ever eat a pierogi?


24. First concert?

Hmmm... It was an all-day thing with Eve 6, Uncle Kracker (before he was more awesome) and... other people that I can't remember.

25. Where would you be able to spend hours and be happy?

A 60 degree night with my pink snuggie, a campfire, no bugs, beer and a few good friends listening to Kid Rock.  (Its a Michigan thing - you may or may not understand)

26. What’s your favorite kind of doughnut?

Chocolate dipped from Tim Horton's.

27. Do you have any tattoos or piercings?

No tattoos yet.  The hubs and I want to get two puzzle pieces that would go together if you could rip off our skin and match them up.  But we can't decide what we want ON the puzzle piece if anything.
I do have my ears pierced and I've had my nose pierced twice - I miss it  :(

28. Who was the last person you spoke to on the phone?

My mamacita. 

29. Are you still friends with the people you knew in middle school or high school?

Some of them.  If you saw my Facebook you'd think so but I only talk to a handful of them regularly.

30. What is the last thing you ate?

A fortune cookie.  "You will attend an unusual party and meet an important person."

31. What did you want to be when you grew up?

A teacher.  A wife.  A mom.

32. Name three things that are close to you:

A pencil, a laundry basket full of clothes that need to be folded (my priorities are quite obvious) and the tv remote.

33. What was your best subject in school?

English.  I loved writing but it wasn't until college that I finally had a professor "get" me enough to make me feel comfortable to write freely.

34. What is your favorite restaurant?

G's Pizzeria - if you ever come to Michigan look them up and order their garlic spears.  I swear your life will be changed.  (Hire a personal trainer for when you get home).  They are the best breadsticks ON EARTH!  There are a few locations throughout the state.

35. Any hidden talents?

I wouldn't call it a talent but I'm finding a knack for floral arrangement.  I'm also freakishly intuitive.  Lastly, I have an unmatched ability to pretend I care when I want to punch you in the face and tell you to get over it.

36. What is your favorite girl’s name?

Miranda.  Naturally.  I kid, I kid.... it used to Isabella but thats wearing off.  I like girls names that could be boys names like Randi, Jo, etc. 

37. Would you rather be a rock star or a famous athlete?

Probably a rock star.  A clean rock star with a great wardrobe and a personal trainer.  Not a coke nosed, hotel-room-trasher psycho.  And I'd want to sit around and have jam sessions with Kid Rock and Hank Williams.  (Thats a marriage between my roots - all of my family is from Tenessee and we've migrated to Michigan) Oh and to shake hands with Eddie Vedder from Pearl Jam would also ignite my soul.

38. What are you wearing right now?

Black goucho pants, a purple shirt, my stupid bra that I hate (yes I still have on my work clothes at 12:30 am - I literally JUST sat down to relax), my wedding ring, a black bracelet that I was given as a gift from a coworker's trip to Vegas and my "Stop Child Abuse" bracelet.

39. Did you graduate from college?

Negative.  I got through about 2 years before I decided to quit wasting time and money until I could decide what I wanted to "be"

40. Do you have any nicknames?

Myer, Mirdiz, The Divine Miss M (TRUE), Dizzle and most recently Diz.  (I'm hoping one day I'll just be a symbol like Prince.  I think I like the excitement that an exclamation point could bring.) 

And there you have it.  I've been fighting the nausea that comes from pure exhaustion for the last 25 questions so its off to bed for this girl.  Night night!


  1. I fricking love these things. And, of course I TOTALLY get your evening +Snuggies, -bugs, with beer and Kid Rock. Can't take the Michigan out of the girl.

    And when you said Tim Horton's I cried a little. Coffee for me, Tim Bits for the kids. Sigh. Don't have that here.

  2. Ahhh my refreshingly Michigan gal. Maybe you ought to make a summer pilgrimage to Michigan in August. There really is no party like a Kid Rock party in Detroit (aka not Detroit but Clarkston at DTE aka Pine Knob).

    Then you could refuel the next morning with some Timmy H! Just saying... sounds like a fab idear!

  3. I knew I loved you for a reason(s).

    And PS, do NOT name your daughter Randi, I forbid it.

  4. Welllll... I'm *kind* of lovable. My husband wouldn't know because I've been operating in high gears for a couple weeks now and barely even acknowledging him. But I swear I am.

    And fine, I won't do Randi. Even though I LOVE that and wish that'd been MY name.
