  •  First time you were drunk: 1.) What were you drinking? 2.) Anything funny or memorable happen? Oh God!!  I was drinking Purple Passion (liquid crack) my freshman year in college. Ick!  It wasn't my finest hour and unfortunately, not the worse hangover I wouldever have - but I did get one nonetheless.  I don't recall anything funny or memorable (the night is a bit sketchy) but it was the first time I really drank and got drunk...I was a late bloomer! 

    * What was your most embaressing moment? Non-alcohol related: Walking into church with my skirt stuck into my pantyhose.  I had no idea but my backside was out for all to see.  I had a few people behind me and NO ONE said anything until a nice lady came behind me when I got to the church doors!  I can't imagine that those people were more embarrased than I was to tell me that all my junk in the truck was hanging out! Alcohol related: I plead the 5th! Embarrassed

    * Name one or two things you learned how to do this year? I can't think of anything new I learned this year right now...sad.

    * Do you have a crock pot? If so, what's your favorite crock pot meal? Yes I have one and my favorite meal is beef stew.

    * Is there any food you're picky or "funny" about? Not really.  I am an equal opportunity eater for the most part.  I will try anything once.

    * Nicolas Cage - talented or terrible? Talented for acting - I think his earlier work is better - Peggy Sue Got Married...Raising Arizona...loved those; Terrible for hair/toupee!

    TTC since 3/07. IVF#1 = canceled. IVF#2 = 0% fertilization. IVF#3 = BFN. IVF#4 = c/p.  
    Moving forward with Adoption 2017!

    * Is there any food you're picky or "funny" about?

    Being a vegetarian, I obviously don't eat meat.  But I also can't do raw onions.  I love cooked onions, but raw makes me belch for the rest of the day.

  • * First time you were drunk: 1.) What were you drinking? I was 16 and it was Zima ::I'm so ashamed to admit this now:: 2.) Anything funny or memorable happen? No, not really, I remember I was drinking in my boyfriend's Fiero which I thought was the coolest car in the world at the time...lol

    * What was your most embaressing moment? I used to have a sweating issue in HS. I didn't smell or anything, I just could never keep those baby-Ts from getting wet marks on them. I remember a kid in my chemistry class (he was kind of a bully) saw it and felt the need to point it out to everyone.

    * Name one or two things you learned how to do this year That I could give myself an injection and I also learned how to "break down" a whole roaster chicken into pieces/parts which is SO much cheaper than buying a package of chicken breasts or drum sticks, etc. (thanks Alton Brown!)

    * Do you have a crock pot? If so, what's your favorite crock pot meal? Yes and I can't wait to use it! I love making beef stew and chili in the crock pot once fall rolls around.

    * Is there any food you're picky or "funny" about? Meat - I won't eat the chunks of chicken or beef that come in a can of soup, they always have a weird texture. And if I see a vein or something in a piece of chicken...it's over. I'm with Naybird too on the mayo thing...it grosses me out.

    * Nicolas Cage - talented or terrible? Terrible with the exception of Raising Arizona

    * What was your most embaressing moment? while in college, my university had a campus tv station, and there was a sketch comedy show that students did, well one day i happened to be getting coffee on campus and they happened to be filming, i was walking out of the cafe, holding 2 coffees, 1 for a friend, and fell flat on my face with coffee going everywhere, needless to say, they edited it into the opening sequence of the show, i was MORTIFIED!!!
