I Am Very Boring

I'm blaming it on being sick. And I'm blaming being sick for the third time this winter on my office mate's kids going to daycare. That's not really fair, but I'm in a bad mood. And when you take Nyquil at 8:00 pm, you tend to wake up at an ungodly hour the next day where the only thing on TV is Guthy Renker. Whatever the hell that is.

My new favorite person Tracy has tagged me for this, and I can always muster the strength to talk about myself.


~3 names I answer to:

Elizabeth (It’s probably someone I don’t want to talk to if they call me by my first name.)
Schmoopie (It all started as a joke from that Seinfeld episode. You can shut up with all the laughing now, and if you know Joe you must never speak of this.)

Names I won’t answer to include “Blondie” and “Yo!” both of which I was called when I waited tables.

~3 parts of your heritage:


~3 things that scare me:

Losing a loved one.
Having an incurable disease.
Cockroaches – ever since one flew at my head in a dark room when I was 8. I didn’t know they could fly and I almost wet my pants.

~3 of your everyday essentials:

Laptop with an internet connection.
Cell phone.
A hug, a kiss, and an “I love you” from Joe.

~3 things you are wearing right now:

Those fuzzy socks
A sore throat

~3 of your favorite songs:

Suedehead by Morrissey
The Seed by The Roots
Between the Bars by Elliot Smith

~3 things about the opposite sex that appeal to you:

Good sense of humor
That neck smell

~3 things you want in a relationship (other than real love)


~3 of your favorite hobbies:

Watching TV

~3 Places you want to go

Bora Bora
Fiji (None of these will probably happen because I can’t be in a plane over the ocean for longer than an hour or two.)

~3 things you want to do before you die:

Have some little kids of my own.
Get a boobie lift.
Get over this fear of flying for 18 straight hours so I vacation someplace cool.

~3 ways that you are stereotypically a female/male:

God, how I love to shop.
I cry often. I don’t even have to be sad.
Half of my wardrobe is in the pink family.

~2 truths and 1 lie (in any order):

I got a 680 on the math portion of the SAT.
I’m a hypochondriac about my health.
I am a horrible procrastinator at work even though it gives me tremendous anxiety. (I challenge you to guess the lie.)

~3 people you would like to take this survey:

Fightin' Mad Mary
And anyone else I didn't get last time.

Unrelated - I finally found a Paula Deen show and I just learned that Savannah's minor league baseball team is called the "Sand Gnats." How embarrassing. Macon, GA has some team that's called the "Whoopie" (say it out loud--Macon Whoopie). Who thinks of these things? Maybe I'm just bitter because I went from being a tough Bulldog in high school to being a God damned bird in college. Fly little Ospreys, fly!

The lie: you didn't get a 680 on the math portion of your SAT...the only reason I know this is because you've mentioned several times how bad at math you are. See, I pay attention!

Okay, I had no idea that you loved to shop. Maybe it's just that you don't love to shop at the Outlets, or maybe it's that you don't love to shop with me and Christine...or that you'd rather have been sleeping. You have some 'splaining to do!

Oh girl, my friend Helen travels to the Maldives every other year (yeah, must be nice, huh?). From the pictures, it looks AMAZING. If you ever summon up the courage to travel over the ocean for more than two hours, tell me. I'll even provide you with Dramamine and a paper bag for breathing into.

You're off the hook for 7 yr old bday hell today for 2 reasons...You are sick and Sandra Lee (the mom from a couple of weekends ago) never did RSVP...which 80% of the class didn't do either (isn't the whole point of RSVP is to call either way or am I mistaken?).

Love you Schmoopie, I mean, washed out, plain looking c**t! ; )

Feel better soon.

I almost forgot...there will be no bashing of the ospreys. We need to be glad we weren't the banana slugs.

A - I barely made a 680 as my total score. I am not one for the standardized tests. I'm afraid I'm one of those people who only like to shop alone, but given the choice I would choose sleep first.

H - She lives in England, right? It's probably a much shorter trip. Every time you talk about England I'm reminded of the wedding Nazi. Remember?

C - I'm sorry. It is great to be a UNF Osprey. Caw caw!

If it makes you feel better, I never ever took the SAT - I was too chicken!!!

I love shopping alone too, so I can't fault you for that. You are still on my "People I Love More Than Shopping" list (and believe me, it's a very short list).

A - How the freak did you get out of taking the SAT???? You are my idol (well, you have been for awhile because of your shopping just add another reason). I still break out in a cold sweat just thinking of it.

C - the reason we will never be as good as Alicia, when it comes to shopping, is because if given a choice, sleep always wins out. Alicia is able to push through the pain.

H - I want to be Helen in my next life.

I think I got lucky because I changed high schools at just the right somehow nobody caught that I hadn't taken it yet. Gotta love Florida's school system!!!

I didn't need it to get into community college - just took an entrance exam. I had no plans to start out at a big school anyhow. Thank God for transfer student programs or else I'd never have gotten into UF!

Anyhow, as for the are right - shopping comes before sleep. The only caveat is that when you are pregnant, this rule no longer applies. So right now, I'm just like you guys!!!
