And You Are...? Blog Hop

Emily and Tammy, with the help of David Spade, need to give away three Christmas presents, so they're going to interview a group of people, some naughty and some nice, to find those most deserving of Santa's toys.





Here are my answers. Cross your fingers I can impress them with my awesomeness. Because I want All The Things.

1. How many speeding tickets have you gotten?

Zero. Nada. Zilch. Yes, I am THAT perfect. I was pulled over for a headlight out once and got a warning. My husband on the other hand...

2. Can you pitch a tent?

If it comes with those thin poles that elasticize together, and it's a relatively small dome, then YES. Better yet, the kid sized ones that snap into being when you pull it out of the nylon bag. That counts, right?

3. What was your worst vacation ever?

In fourth grade, my class took a trip to the Big Island to see the erupting volcano, and then didn't see it because there was a tsunami warning. We spent our time in a school gym until we got the all clear. Then when we were back home on Oahu, I GOT LEFT AT THE AIRPORT. That's right, the school bus left without me and my BFF (we were in the bathroom) and we cried until some security guard found us and helped us call home. Worst. Vacation. Ever.

4. What was the last thing you bought over $100?

I'd say books (Merry Christmas to me) but I guess those are a bunch of little things, right? So...a brown leather chaise for my writing room. I know--awesomesauce.

5. We're handing you the keys to what?

My new beachfront house in Lanikai. *dreams*




6. What was the last meal you cooked that made even you sick?

Stroganoff. The mushrooms were bad bad bad. We had to dump it and I went out for a tray of orange chicken instead.

7. Fill in the blank: Oh my gosh! Becky, look at her butt! It is so big. She looks like ______?

...one of those rap guys' girlfriends. Oh, am I supposed to be original here? Um, she looks like...me. Haha. Big booty girls unite!

8. What was your first car?

A red Honda Accord. Exciting, I know.

9. Your best friend falls and gets hurt. Do you ask if he/she's okay or laugh first?

Neither. I immediately get down to help her up, ask if she's okay, then glare at anyone who might be laughing.

10. What's the worst song ever?

Um...this one. I think it's pretty self-explanatory.




Pick me, David, pick me!

No speeding ticket ever, huh?? Wow.

Oh my, what a terrible vacation. Love your writing style.

Suzi said...

The worst thing about that song is it sticks in your mind. And that is why I didn't listen to your video. I don't need it in my head all morning.

Tara Tyler said...

You and me are totally on the same wave length when it comes to the music:) That's exactly what I thought...and yep, big girl booty over here!

J. A. Bennett said...

I want a chaise for my writing room! Then again, I just want a writing room, lol!

M.J. Fifield said...

If that's the view from your beachfront house then I want one too.

And I love your answer for worst song ever. Too funny.

Diane Riggins said...

Loved reading your answers. Have a good day.

Sylvia van Bruggen said...

I hear you on the song choice too! So far every song I have heard of made me cringe!

That beach looks gorgeous! can just imagine living there!

Emily R. King said...

Left at the airport? Red first car (me too)? Icky stroganoff? You're in my top three! :)

Robin said...

Ilima-so sad about the airport....and I obviously misunderstood the keys question-LOL, I put the car I currently drive. I'd take your beachfront house, for sure:)

Kathryn Purdie said...

I HATE THAT SONG TOO!!! And so sad about your abandonment at the airport. My vacation nightmare involved abandonment too...only I was a lot older than you (though I still almost cried).

Emily said...

Wow. Good job on the no speeding tickets. You're awesome!

Also, how did you get that picture of the view from my beach house?

Weird.

:)

Cortney Pearson said...

LOL yes yes yes on the song! Awful! And I can't believe you got left at the airport on that trip! Crazypants!

Morgan said...

Sooooo fun, Ilima. Loved your answers!

E. Arroyo said...

Can I share that house with you? Nice. =)

Rebekah Loper said...

Yikes, I don't even want to think about getting left behind at the airport . . . that must've sucked!

Tyrean Martinson said...

Love your answers! And I agree with your song choice - definitely worse than the one I picked!

Nicole said...

Oh my! I'm still chuckling a little at the fact that you got left at the airport AFTER a volcano and tsunami. That's quite the vacay!

Jack said...

Beach front property would be nice!I could use that right now.

Thank you for the follow!

A. L. Jambor said...

That beach property looked nice. New follower, please consider following me.

Azara said...

What a scary vacation! Yikes. That song is dreadful and the video only makes it worse. Then again, how could the video make it better?

Kelley Lynn said...

Eh! I hate the song too! Ick.

Carrie Butler said...

I'm so jealous about your brown leather chaise... and the books! You better enjoy them. ;)

Tammy Theriault said...

poor thing...can't believe you were left behind!! totally sucky song!!

Shannon Lawrence said...

Oh man, that is definitely the worst trip ever!!! I have an irrational fear of tsunamis, considering I live in Colorado, haha. Something about the imagery of the tsunamis I've seen is just utterly terrifying to me. I'm not sure why that's captured my fears where other things haven't, but what can you do? Water always makes me feel a bit helpless.

Annalisa Crawford said...

I choose you to walk down the street with me, because sometimes I fall off kerbs for no reason! Although, I confessed to laughing, so maybe I don't deserve you :-)

Deirdre said...

That trip to the Big Island and getting left at the airport sounds awful! And so do the divinyls! But the keys to Lanikai...priceless!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Well, be glad you didn't see the tsunami - that would've been even worse!

David P. King said...

Yay! We both never got speeding tickets! Well, I almost did this one time, but we'll save that story for another time. Awesome answers! :)

Jenny S. Morris said...

You poor thing. My mom left us at church all the time but the airport?? Yikes. And that song is horrible. LOL

Hope Roberson said...

So fun to read! And I agree with the bad song choice :)

Elizabeth Seckman said...

Congrats on your win!! And I red-facedly admit...I have that song on my playlist.

Elise Fallson said...

Sorry I'm so late getting over here, but congrats on the win! And that's awful they left you at the airport. I hope the teachers felt terrible for that. And love this line, "My husband on the other hand..." LOL!
