About Me

My photo
Columbus, Ohio, United States
I'm a stay at home mom and wife with a passion for family, creating and photography. I'm a little bit quirky and a little bit odd, but that's what makes me...well me. I'm a jack of all trades. So check back often because, to paraphrase Forest Gump's mom "I'm like a box of chocolates, you never know what your going to get.

A bit more...

{one} who’s the funniest person you know? That's easy...My friend Dani. She is always in stand-up mode. There have been nights that she has about made me pee in my pants. 

{two} were you a michael jackson fan? LOL!! The person I was just talking about is a huge fan and he pasted on her birthday. I was a huge fan until about high school when the New Wave/Goth kicked in. I've always had admiration for his talent. Put it this way, Micheal as an artist is  great, but Micheal as a person( from what he and the media put out there) over powered the talent.   

{three} what was your favorite book as a child? Really young I loved the Little House on the Prairie series. We watched the show faithfully. I also loved Judy Blume and Beverly Cleary. 

{four} what’s the most delicious meal you’ve ever eaten? That's a hard one. My hubby and I were both in the restaurant business and worked in 4 star restaurants in Atlanta, Ga, so we've eaten a lot of great food. The most memorable dish I've ever had was before I met my hubby, back when I was living and studying in German. One night I treated myself  to a dinner at a fancy Indian restaurant by my dorm. I had never eaten Indian food before, and being from rural Arkansas I wasn't really keen on new foods. I had meet this really hot guy from Manchester (The guitarist in a band) and he raved about Indian food. We past by it one night and he commented on how wonderful it smelled. One day I was having a horrible day and as I walked by the smells of curry totally lifted my mood. So I had to try it. I had the Matar Paneer. It was absolutely delicious. It was expensive for me at the time, but once a month I would treat myself to the delight.  You would never think a curry from Indian would become a comfort food for a small town girl from rural Arkansas.

{five} if you could eliminate on thing you do each day in the bathroom so you never had to do it again, what would it be? Yeah I'm with the shaving thing. I totally hate doing it, and really try to avoid it. 

{six} if you could ask barak obama one question, what would it be? I honestly don't have much to say, or ask him. I don't need the razzle dazzle. I'm underwhelmed. I'd just smile, and  say "What an honor to meet you" (because let's face it how often to you meet a president.)

{seven} what’s the best place near you to get a drink? We don't have a local bar we go to, but there is a fun little Hole in the wall that we frequent named Brewstir's. Pool, darts, karaoke and one of the best OSU game day parties off campus. They cater to the Lost Boys crowd. (I mean Peter Pan not vampires)

{eight} what kind of music can you just not stand to listen to? MMmmmm....... I appreciate all kinds of music, but I have to say I have a three way tie sexist rap, death metal  and twangy country. 

{nine} who and when was your first kiss? I was in junior high, he a friend's cousin. Nothing magic or memorable unfortunately. The sad fact was that it was at a wrestling match, with Jerry the King Lawler (he was the wrestler who body slammed Andy Kaufmann on Letterman). My best friend was totally into it (remember this is rural Arkansas in the 1980's). I was not. I actually remember almost getting beamed by a metal chair coming out of the bathroom. I saw him one other time. Just nothing in common.

{ten} what 3 things do you think will become obsolete in the next ten years? Home phones, cd's and dvd's.

All this talk about my roots in rural Arkansas made me think about  about bad hair bands of the 80's. Of course when my hubby found a Jaguar at bargain basement prices he had to have it. This was before the little one. Every time I ride in it I can help but hear Whitesnake  in my head and see Tawny Kitan slithering on the hood. I have to chuckle.  Then I turn the radio station to the local alternative station.

I love that picture Cindy. GORGEOUS! : ) I also love your answers and wrote down that Indian food to try. What a great thing to do to cheer yourself up.

Me too about Beverly Cleary and the Little House books. Weren't they the bomb?

It was nice reading a wee bit about you. I am also with you on the shaving thing. And the items that wont exist in ten years. Everything is going sooo digital!

I love getting to know you better and think we all agree on the shaving thing.

Thank you for commenting on my blog. Love your b&w entry =))

I love the comment about Indian food being your comfort food. It's funny what does it for each of us and how, like you said, it seems so unreal when you look where at our backgrounds.

Great answer on #2 too. I feel sorry for the legacy of Michael Jackson-will future generations be able to really appreciate or examine his music without the bias of the other drama? Who knows.
