Thursday Thunks: Jaw's is Scurry!

1. We know how creative Berleen is with her terrific tee-shirts and such, so how about you? Do you draw anything or perhaps your name in the sand when you go to the beach?

I am a wet cement tagger. I just can't help myself. Just this pic alone gives me goosebumps!!

2. Kimber doesn’t always leave her house. I wonder if she knows what is out her back door. What is out your back door?

I don't have a back door! Apt. living for me!

3. Do you prefer the beach, a pool or a lake? Why?

Exercise... the Beach. To swim NEVER!! Still scarred from....

4. What is something recently that happened to you that you are REALLY excited about?

5. I am fortunate that I come from a very close family. Are any of your great-grandparents still alive? If not did you ever meet them?

They have passed but I was fortunate to spend most of my childhood with my Great Grandparents... this is me, my folks and Great Grandma Peterson...


6. When was the last time you spoke in front of a large group? Tell us about it.

My son's class field Trip. They joined a couple Special Needs classes and went to Pump it up. It's a huge place filled with kids jumpers. I spoke to the parents about The Autspot and our upcoming picnic. It was nerve wrecking... I can't stand public speaking.

7. Have you ever bungee jumped? Would you ever bungee jump?

Yes I did! I had a blast. I bungee jumped at 1992 Lollapalooza in the Bay Area. I don't know which is more exhilarating, Bungee Jumping or Bay Area Festivals! So actually bungee jumping at a Festival was Awesome!!

8. How strong emotionally do you think you are?

Personal Issues: Train Wreck
Autism Issues: Strong as a Bull!

9. Kimber and Berleen still have NEVER met, yet they are best friends. What is the first thing you notice about people when you meet them?

We should all chip in and buy one of them a ticket to meet the other... seriously.. that would be cool! In answer to the question...The Eyes.... Not so much the color.. it's the light within, do they give direct eye contact, are they warm or cold?

10. Who do you mess with the most?

My friend Brandi. We smack talk back and forth. She's Samoan & I'm African if the average person overheard our convo's they'd shudder, but we smack talk back in forth about each other all in good fun! At the end of the day we are best friends and have mutual respect for each other's cultures.

11. Who was the last person you talked to on a landline?

I have no idea! It's been a long time.

12. I finally saw Avatar this week. What was the last movie you watched long after it came out and loved?

Valentines Day! It was actually a great movie. It was really funny. I was surprised because usually movies filled with too many stars are a bust. I like that it was geared towards single people as well. Taylor Swift's character cracked me up. That was really surprising that both Taylor's, Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner were actually really funny!

13. What did you dream about last night?

I don't remember.  I have had chronic back pain... but only at night... my new futon i was so excited about sucks!

My kids are always amazed when they see stuff drawn in cement. I really should take them to a construction site so they can master the fine art of cement tagging! Lord knows, there's enough construction going on around here! Maybe there will be some eye candy for me! :)

Oka said...

WIsh I was close to a beach again (ocean that is). I'd swim :D

Territory Mom said...

I've never been to the ocean but its on my bucket list. I would rather bungee jump than speak in front of a crowd. I have two grandmas still alive, 89 & 93 years old. I do remember my great grandparents. I'm a blank about movies. I didn't see Dirty Dancing until 10 years after it came out. Can't say I loved it though.

ClosedOnSunday said...

I gotta tell you, I LOVE the old pictures you post. Your mom is beautiful!!

Meeko Fabulous said...

I've been wanting to watch Valentines' Day! It needs to hurry up and come out on Netflix. LoL

Kmama said...

Oh no! Your futon sucks?? That's terrible.

I liked Valentine's Day too. That was a cute movie...and yes, the Taylor's were good!!

Noelle said...

I'm soooo sad about your futon! I have chronic back pain too...have had for about 7 years. We bought a bed - dang expensive bed - that my husband was sure would cure the problem. My back still hurts...every single night.

Bud Weiser, WTIT said...

That is SUCH a neat picture of your family. Knowing your great-grandparents must have been great. When I wrote the question, I figured no one would say "yes". Enjoy your day and thanks for playing...

blueviolet said...

I can't believe you tag wet cement. You're a stinker!

I despise public speaking!!!

Jammie said...

LOL @ wet cement tagger. Now when I see wet cement I will think of you :p

LL Cool Joe said...

Is this the first time we've disagreed? I hated that film so much! I only saw it because there was no other choice on the plane journey from here to the States.

Love the old photo too!

Retro Girl said...

I would love to make a little art in someone's wet cement :-) Press some little charm into it, make a leaf pattern, or something artsy to make them smile :-)

You are very brave on the bungee jump. I am terrified of heights and falling! More power to you!

Mine's up :0)

Joanna Jenkins said...

You bungee jumped? OMG! You are so brave. And that goes for public speaking too.

Cheers, jj

I wanted to go to that Lollapoloza (sorry cant spell to tired!)I remember begging to go to it but my mom wouldn't let me. Crazy. I had friends that went to it though. I hate swimming in the ocean because of Jaws! But I have no desire to bungee jump. Colby is named after my great grandma. (yes we are twisted naming a boy after a woman it was her maiden name) She died 5 days before he was born and was 97 but she knew we were naming him after her and she was shocked. She told me "Well I never imagined anyone would want to name a boy Colby but I"m honored sweetie" I wear her wedding ring every day on my index finger. It keeps me strong on bad days.

I'm chicken i won't bungee jump. your tough.
