Today we’re talking you.  That’s right.  YOU. 

If you’re new here, or old here, today is the day that you suck it up, say hello and leave a comment.  Even if you never leave a comment, even if you like to hide out behind your RSS reader.  These posts are some of my favorites {here and here} because it’s like peeking behind the curtain at the great and powerful Oz. 

I get to be Dorothy.

Lemme just grab my ruby slippers and let’s get started, shall we?  Maybe you’ll tell me what you secretly want to be when you grow up, your must have beauty product, your favorite guilty pleasure, or about the time you drove up the steps of the Holiday Inn when you were fifteen and didn’t have a license… or something… allegedly. 

I can not wait to see what you’ve got for me today.

When I was fifteen I was caught hiding my 19yo boyfriend. My Dad found him under the bed and literally put his foot in his ass. Seriously.

What my parents don't know? He used to spend weekends in my room all the time. My parents worked shift work so it was easy to accomplish, until my parents were both off and decided to have a huge family BBQ.

I forgot to mention that my previous comment is the exact reason my husband is afraid for our daughter. He is praying she will be nothing like the unruly teenager that I was.


Ok - I laugh now, but ask me what is going on in 15 years. I betcha it ain't pretty.

My daughter pooped her pants on the preschool playground yesterday. When I asked her why she didn't ask to be taken to the bathroom? "I pooped outside because animals poop outside." 3YO logic amazes me. Potty-training is going to get the best of me yet!

Must have beauty products - dry shampoo and mascara. When I was younger, I fell down in a bar and busted my head open and I still have a huge scar above my eyebrow. Quite graceful and embarassing.

When I was in junior high and high school, I wanted to be the fashion editor for Vogue.

I secretly want to be a fashion designer for all us shorties out there! You know, the shorter than "petite sizes" gals, who also have curves! Nothing is more annoying than trying on petite jeans that are still 5 inches too long! And to add to my shortylicious fashion empire: CUTE shoes in STORES for those of us with itty bitty size five and smaller tootsies. Now, if only I had a knack for fashion...and a zillion dollars.

I may have told you this before, but I can't cook breakfast. I can make anything else via a recipe but pancakes and eggs are beyond my skills, even when someone is standing next to me and telling me what to do, step by step.

Laura! My feet are DOUBLE yours!

Favorite Beauty products L'Oreal liquid black eyeliner and Stila cherry crush lip stain.I can't live with out hair powder! When I grow up I would like to be a writer but I defeat myself by thinking everything relevant has already been written. I'm part Jew so all my pleasure makes me feel guilty. I'm living my dream by being married to a man that I thought only existed in dreams and by living in France. I have to tell myself on a regular basis "you are that person". My brother and I talk on the phone like two high school girls on a regular basis. And I hide parts of myself from my children so they can see me as the awesome person they think I am. I love coke out of a bottle only. I've recently learned to stop blaming my children for my mad domestic obsessions. Because I now see that even when they leave I put house work before all else so I must enjoy it, not their fault. I love to peel my nail polish and swallow my bubble gum.

I don't have a "must have" beauty product, but I started mixing a little moisturizer with my foundation a few months ago it has made a world of difference. I love to go to the movies alone. I hate to cook. My kids think we're having company if they see me cooking. My best friend and I stole her mother's car when we were in the 7th grade. My friend, who was like 3 feet tall, did the driving. Shockingly we got pulled over and the cops took us back to her house where her horrified mother informed us we would not be allowed to play together for a while.

I recently discovered I am known for two things.
Online: Dead cats in my house
In Real Life: Peeing my pants

Um, yeah.

I Ioathe snow days for the exact opposite reason that teachers like them. I'm a sahm. When I grow up, I wanna travel and volunteer. At the current time though, I'm on my gazillionth new career (lia sophia advisor) and thus far, I'm pretty damn happy though it has NOTHING to do with my degrees.

I want my children to be happy and that is my biggest goal and we live in an area where success is measured in titles and degrees so I'm kinda getting looks lately like I'm either backwoods or a hippy. I don't think I'm either, but I'm okay with people thinking so.

I'm emotionally scarred by the dump the economy took on my husband and I 5 years ago and who knows if I'll shake it or if I'll bury cans of money in the back yard someday. I overcompensate by "sticking it to the man" and shopping my brains out. ("The man" really is getting "it"). Lol!

I love handmade gifts. My cousin just sent me salmon he smoked and jam he made. Best. Gift. Ever!!!

And soon, my equally quirky friend and I will storm the local bingo hall. Ok. Maybe not storm. Maybe not even burst in. Maybe just float in like the wind and quietly daub ;)

Emily said...

Yeah...I'm gonna need a little more guidance than that...Besides, you already know most of my randomnesses and weirdnesses, I think. :-)

One Mom said...

I have to look at a "recipe" when I make hard boiled eggs. It's embarrassing. Worse? I make three extra eggs so I can crack them open and randomly test to make sure they're cooked the way I like them. I usually only waste two, but sometimes it takes all three.
