What Was Your First Car

My first car was a Ford Tempo. Crazy crappy car! This thing had no radio, the window on the passenger side wouldn't roll down and the driver's side door wouldn't open! So I had to get in and out Duke's of Hazzard style. So since it didn't have a radio by the time I got anywhere I was crying because the only song I knew all the words too was Amazing Grace! Eventually the car caught on fire. Not the whole car but some important parts under the hood. So I sang Amazing Grace one last time and moved on to a different crappy car!

What was your first car?

What's Up With Blogger

What in the world is going on with blogger today? Is anyone else having problems. I keep trying to post and it won't let me. It keeps sending me back to the dashboard. I think maybe blogger is tired... Maybe all the posting has worn it out. Or maybe blogger is possessed by a little blogger demon... Maybe blogger is sick... Or what if blogger has been taken over by aliens...

So do you know what's wrong with blogger?

What Is Your Favorite Flower

My favorite flower is the tulip. Whenever I see tulips I just feel like things are new and clean. Tulips are the first to arrive in the spring and just kinda welcome the new season. I love that. At my old house I had huge yellow tulips with a beautiful red center. I'm going to miss them! I'm going to have to look around for some more to plant at the new house.

What is your favorite flower?

What Is My Favorite Movie

Debbie asked what my favorite movie is. Butterfly Effect is my all time favorite movie! I love this movie. I've probably watched it 25 times. What I love about this movie is that is shows how single events change our lives. How if we change just one thing it alters the course of our lives. Every time I watch it I think about those events that have changed my life.

Being Adopted

Meeting certain people

My sister being born

My parents divorce

Buying my first home

My mom dying

Getting my puppy Lena

All events that have changed things in my life. Without one of those things I would be very different. My life would have played out differently. Would it have been better or worse. We will never know in our own lives. But briefly when we watch Butterfly Effect we can see how certain events change his life... Watch it and think about your own life... What would be different?

What is your favorite movie?

What Movie Have I Been Meaning Watch

Isokesa left this question for me today. We all have that running list in our head of movies or books we are going to watch or read but haven't got to yet. I have piles of books and a queue a mile long on my Netflix account. But right now the movie that I really want to see but haven't got to yet is The Aviator. I have had it sitting on my entertainment center for quite awhile and just haven't watched it. I think I'm going to do that this evening....

So what movie have you been meaning to watch but haven't gotten around to yet?

What Is Your Favorite Holiday

My favorite holiday is fast approaching. In fact it is today... Just kidding. But today is Rosh Hashanah. So if I was Jewish it may be my favorite holiday. But I'm not so my favorite holiday is actually Halloween. I just think it is a blast!

The dressing up, the candy, the kids all over the place, the fact that it is crisp and cool, the pumpkins! I just love it!!! I have so many Halloween decorations and I always get a HUGE pumpkin. Like at least 100 pounds. I just love pumpkins! So I'm psyched. Once October 1st rolls around I start putting out the decorations. Fun times ahead!

So what is your favorite holiday?

Also tomorrow is Sunday which means I answer your questions. So if you have one just post it and I'll get to it. If there is more than one I will just answer them throughout the week. Have a good one!

Who's Been Tagged

I have been tagged by Julie over at Flip this Body. She tagged me a couple days ago and I've been sick and haven't blogged. So now that I'm feeling a little better here goes...

1. One book that changed your life- hardest question first.

To Kill a Mocking Bird. I've been an avid reader all my life and I was pretty young when I read this book for the first time. It was the first book that allowed me to escape. I felt like I was a part of this book as I was reading. It covered so many different experiences and depths of emotion that I couldn't help but feel changed and a part of.

2. One Book That You've Read More Than Once.

What Looks Like Crazy On An Ordinary Day. This book just always makes me feel better. So I've read it quite a few times.

3. One Book That You'd Want On A Desert Island.

I Know This Much Is True. This is one long book so it would keep me occupied for awhile. It's also really really good!

4. One Book That Made You Laugh.

God Said Ha! Oh my I laughed so hard reading this book! I was actually reading it on an airplane and the people around me were a bit annoyed. It was way funny and I couldn't help but laugh outloud!

5. One Book That Made You Cry.

Tuesdays with Morrie. Enough Said!

6. One Book That You Wish You Had Written.

What Looks Like Crazy On An Ordinary Day. I feel like I could have written that book.

7. One Book You Wish Had Never Been Written.

I can't answer this one... I just can't think of one. I have a lot of books I don't like but I wouldn't want them to not be written. Sorry just don't know about this...

8. One Book That You Are Reading Right Now.

I'm reading Suspicion of Deceit by Barbara Parker.

9. One Book That You Have Been Meaning To Read.

90 Minutes In Heaven. Been trying to work myself up to reading... We will see if that happens soon!

10. Tag five others that you would like to do this meme. Laci, Cactus Freak, Henry, Meowkat, LaughterThoughts.

What Is Your Favorite Meal

My favorite meal is meat loaf (my mom's recipe), scalloped potatoes, green beans and rolls! I love that meal!

What is your favorite meal?

What Is The First Thing You Think In The Morning

I actually have two thoughts that run through my head when I first wake up. The first thing is "Today is the day that the Lord hath made, I will rejoice and be glad in it." For some reason that is the first thing that I think when I wake up lately. It's been going on for about a month. It just pops in my head. So I guess that is a good thing.

The other thing I think right after that is "Hurry and get out of bed before Lena pees on the floor." Lena is my puppy who just turned 6 months old. She does a great job with the potty training but I know that mornings are hard for her. She waits all night and then is impatient. So I try to get moving quick so she can get outside.

So what do you think of first thing in the morning?

My Wall

Foxxfyrre's Black and White Art Blog has this cool link exchange thing going on. You can save a wall and then use your paint program to decorate it anyway you want! You email Frank your wall and he links to you. So go check it out. I've added him to my link list so have fun and paint it up!!!

What Are You Afraid Of

I'm horribly afraid of midgets. I know it's crazy. Don't even start leaving me comments about how mean and weird that is. Phobias are not rational folks! So my irrational phobia is that a little person will attack me. They just freak me out!

I'm always worried that they will like head butt me in the knee and then attack me. Their little nubby hands coming close to me just makes my heart race. Seeing a midget makes me panic. There are several that work at Wal-mart here. I've figured out what shifts they work and purposely avoid going there at those times.

At one point MTV True Life wanted me to be on their show "I Have A Phobia". They were gonna pay me $1500 to meet with a therapist and then confront my fears and let them tape it all. I said no way! Confront my fears meant putting me in a room with a hundred midgets and taping me freaking out. There isn't enough money in the world for me to do such a thing.

So what are you afraid of?

On a side note this is my 25th post. It is hard for me to believe that we have answered 25 questions already! So thanks to everyone for answering, asking, and just being a part of the first 25. If you have questions leave them in the comments and I will answer them on Sundays.

Where Were You Born

I was born in a little town in western Kansas called Norton. I think there are only about 3000 people in the whole town. It's pretty little and it's pretty much in the middle of nowhere!

I only stayed in Norton for 10 days! I was adopted and moved to another town in Kansas when I was only 10 days old. I've been back to Norton to visit my birth family but never really officially lived there.

Where were you born?

What Actress or Actor Would Play You

If someone made a movie of my life I would for sure have Rosie O'Donnell play me. So many people tell me that my facial expressions are like hers. We have a similar build and a similar sense of humor. I could so see that! I wouldn't be a lesbian, have 4 children, or have a Broadway show that crashed. However, I would be a fat girl with a funny personality...

Who would play you?

What Book Are You Currently Reading

Right now I am reading Suspicion of Deceit by Barbara Parker. It is the third book in her Gail Connor/Anthony Quintana Series and is very good. It's a great legal mystery book which I enjoy. I would recommend the whole series to people. I think there are 8 books total.

So what book are you reading now and why should I read it?

What Is Your Stripper Name?

Okay the way to figure out your stripper name is to take the name of your first pet and combine it with the name of the street you lived on when you were born...

So my stripper name is Lady Union!

I'm pretty ticked about my stripper name. It's not very stripperish... It's way rough and not sexy... however if I was a dominatrix it may be a good name....

So what is your stripper name?

Where Were You On September 11, 2001

I was working at my job at a school. I was in the first grade class room and the principal came to get me. He pulled me out into the hall and took me to the office to tell me. He knew that my Dad lived in Boston and flew often so he wanted me to call and make sure he was okay. I couldn't get ahold of my Dad. All the lines were blocked there from all the calls and I couldn't get a thing. So while I waited I just sat and watched on TV. Eventually I got my younger sister out of her classes and we went home to wait.

Late in the afternoon I was able to reach my dad. He was safe and sound and no where near the airport!

Where were you that day?

If You Were An Animal What Would You Be

I would be a turtle! I just think turtles are the coolest!!! My sister-in-law is terrified of turtles which I just don't understand. But I love them!

The hard shell on the outside, the squishy soft insides. I just think that is how I am. I seem tough and it takes awhile to get to know me but once you get inside the shell I'm a real softy!

What animal would you be?

What Is Your Favorite Season

My favorite season is right upon us! I love Fall!!! I love the colors, the smells, the temperature... I just think it is beautiful. I like the fact that you can be outside in the fall and not get hot. You can wear a long sleeve tee or a light jacket and be comfy. You can go on a walk or work in the yard and not sweat buckets which is a welcome relief after a Kansas summer. So I'm counting down the days until Fall officially arrives!

What is your favorite season?

Serves on the Armed Services, Transportation, Commerce and Science Committes

He is the author of 6 books, several of which are bestsellers

He is dang good looking

My favorite TV Show is Law and Order SVU!!! I love all the Law and Order's but SVU has to be the best! Elliot is sooooo HOT! And Olivia is just beautiful and wonderful. I love the donk donk sound on L&O! I love trying to solve the crime before they do. I'm just a total dork about that show!

Some of my other favorites are.....

The Biggest Loser- Bob is quite the hottie!

Grey's Anatomy- I'm still ticked that Denny died at the end of last season but I can't wait to see what happens this season!

ER- I have watched ER since it started and just can't get enough!!!

Shows I'm looking forward to for the new season...

Studio 60 or something like that. It's the one that has Matthew Perry in it. Looks good!

Thanks again!

No Questions Today

I know I said I wasn't going to post today but I just feel very moved to do so. First I wanted to show you all this beautiful picture that we had done just the other day. It's my sister and I holding my mom's hand. We have said all along that the only things that have stayed the same about our mom are her heart and her hands so this is very meaningful to us.

Also I must say thank you to Julie from Flip this Body and Bobby from The Bestest Blog. They have both posted beautiful sentiments about my mom and I on their blogs. So I encourage you to visit each of their blogs! They are two of the nicest bloggers I've ever met!!! Not only have they mentioned us but they have set up a way for other bloggers or anyone in general to make donations to the American Cancer Society in my mom's name, Dee Myers. This means so much to my sister and I!

This Friday I will be walking in the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life to raise money for a cure. I believe very deeply in ACS and the work they do! In fact the ACS provided my mom with a beautiful wig for free!! So please if you do feel moved to do something visit Bestest Blog to contribute! Again thank you Julie and Bobby!

I am hanging in there fairly well. This whole process has been very traumatic for me. So today is actually a bit of a celebration of some ways. When I woke up this morning I realized that today is my mom's first full day in heaven and that this is her first full day pain free, worry free, and medication free in a long time. That is a blessing to me. I will miss her each day for the rest of my life I have no doubt about that but she fought the hard fight and has found her way home.

If You Were Invisible Where Would You Go

If I was invisible I would go into the kitchens at all my favorite restaurants. Every time I go to eat somewhere I wonder what they look like. I wonder about a lot of things. Mainly if they are clean or dirty, how many bugs there are, if the cook is weird, if anyone is spitting in my food, or if they actually leave the butter off when I ask them too.

I also wonder what in the heck they do back there at takes so long. It seems like it takes forever to get food sometimes. I really think that maybe they lose the order or play a hand of cards or something before they cook my food. I don't get it. So I would for sure be in the back checking everything out if I was invisible.

Where would you go if you were invisible?

What's your favorite color

This is an easy one but I'm worn out tonight so it has to be an easy one. Green! I love green. All shades of green really. I like lime green and I love deep dark green.
