Mammoth Meme

...tagged by the fun, funny, cool, hip, Karen -thanks!

Q. What is your salad dressing of choice?
A. My homemade balsamic vinaigrette. It's deeeeelish!

Q. What is your favorite fast food restaurant?
A. Don't hate me...but I really don't like fast food :(

Q. What is your favorite sit-down restaurant?
A. The Garden's Gate Restaurant on beautiful Manitoulin Island ;)

Q. On average, what size tip do you leave at a restaurant?
A. Usually around 15% but more if service is excellent. I tend to be generous with tipping though.

Q. What food could you eat every day for two weeks and not get sick of?
A. Lasagna!! I'm with Karen on this one!

Q. What is your favorite type of gum?
A. Excel Peppermint (again, same as Karen)

Q. What is your wallpaper on your computer?
A. It was a wedding pic of ours, then a pic of my pup, then a pic of my 5 week old nephew. Now it's back to the original, generic Microsoft scene of the green hills and blue sky...because someone told me that a pic as my wallpaper would take up too much room and slow down my pc. I don't know if this is true, but I will be the first to admit that I am technologically challenged!!!

Q. How many televisions are in your house?
A. Two. One for watching TV and movies and one in the games room for our PS2.

Q. What’s your best feature?
A. Probably my lips? I have no idea!

Q. Have you ever had anything removed from your body?
A. HAHA! I once had an allergic reaction to earrings (hence the reason I cannot wear anything that is not 100% silver or 100% gold- no cheap cosmetic jewelry for this girl, unfortunately), so I had developped keloids on both ears. They were like little cysts and they had to be removed by cosmetic surgery. I think I was more horrified because I had to walk around with my ears bandaged for a few days! LOL!

Q. Which of your five senses do you think is keenest?
A. Smell. It's a curse. I am very sensitive when it comes to smell.

Q. When was the last time you had a cavity?
A. Probably in high school. I don't have much of a sweet tooth, so it helps.

Q. What is the heaviest item you lifted last?
A. Probably 60 + lbs. of wood! I had to lift some wood onto the splitter so I could split it and then pile it.

Q. Have you ever been knocked unconscious?
A. I can't remember! I once fell down the stairs at college and ended up with a huge egg shaped bump on my forehead. I smacked my head since I fell head first. I remember blackness, bells ringing in my ears, my head hurting and then there was this awfully white light. Then I had to write an exam...Don't remember much else!

Q. If it were possible, would you want to know the day you were going to die?
A. No.

Q. Is love for real?
A. Very real.

Q. If you could change your first name, what would you change it to?
A. Hmm...I used to think I'd like to have been named Crystal Erika or Amber. I've grown accustomed to my name though, so regardless of how boring and common it is, I don't think I'd change it.

Q. What color do you think looks best on you?
A. Turquoise.

Q. Have you ever swallowed a non-food item by mistake?
A. Probably, but I likely not on purpose!

Q. Have you ever saved someone’s life?
A. Yes.

Q. Has someone ever saved yours?
A. No.

Q. Would you walk naked for a half mile down a public street for $100,000?
A. Possibly, but I'd have to have a few martinis just before...and it would have to be a street where no one knows me! LOL!

Q. Would you kiss a member of the same sex for $100?
A. Oh sure. Why not?

Q. Would you allow one of your little fingers to be cut off for $200,000?
A. NO.

Q. Would you never blog again for $50,000?
A. That's a toughie. Maybe. Maybe not.

Q. Would you pose nude in a magazine for $250,000?
A. Nope.

Q. Would you drink an entire bottle of hot sauce for $1000?
A: I would try, but it's doubtful that I'd be able to finish it.

Q. Would you, without fear of punishment, take a human life for $1,000,000?
A. Never. That is such a creepy question!!

Q. Would you give up watching television for a year for $25,000?
A. Sure. I don't watch much TV except for Grey's Anatomy. I'd only do it if Grey's Anatomy were cancelled.

Q. Give up MySpace forever for $30,000?
A. Sure. Never been on it.

A. Stand.

Q: Could you live with roommates?
A. I guess I already do.

Q: How many pairs of flip-flops do you own?
A. Way too many. Dressy, beach, casual, expensive, name it.

Q: Last time you had a run-in with the cops?
A. Years ago, when I was in Montreal. It was Christmas time, I was in university, the roads were blocked for the parade and I went down a side street. There were cars parked on both sides of the road and then when I was making a right turn, some guy pulls out without signalling and then hits me as I'm turning. I was young and had never gotten in trouble with the police and didn't know what to do, so I kept driving! Minutes later, the police were chasing me with their sirens and lights going! I kept driving. Hey! I was nervous! When I did pull over, they told me in French, that a hit and run is a criminal offense. I explained my story and they saw that I was sort of in the right but I shouldn't have kept driving! LOL! By the damage, the insurance could see that the other driver hit me. I still don't know why I was the one who was nervous though! I still can't believe I kept driving!!!

Q: What do you want to be when you grow up?
A. I have to grow up?

Q: Friend you talked to?
A. My student's mom.

Q: Last person you called?
A. My sister-in-law in Kingston. I called to check in on my little nephew and to wish my SIL a happy birthday. Turns out her b-day is in 2 days. I'm a dummy.

Q. First place you went this morning?
A. Kitchen.

Q: What can you not wait to do?
A: Have some quality time with just my Hubby. We're so gosh darn busy all the time.

Q: What's the last movie you saw?
A: The Fast and The Furious: Tokyo Drift. Hubby wanted to watch it :)

Q: Are you a friendly person?
A: I sure am!!!

I tag Ms. Mamma, Curiosity Killer, and Doggie Mama. Have fun!

Oh you are hillarious! I can't believe you kept driving even when the cops were chasing you! You crack me up Chris!

I want to know when I'm going to die. I've got a few people that I'd like to curse out before then.

Ms. Mamma said...

Yeah, I'm with crazy woman driver, you!

Mist 1 Go and check out your "Death Clock" just google it and you'll know how long you have.

Chrissy121875 said...

Thanks!!! That was a horrifying experience! Glad I can make you laugh at my expense, girlfriend! ;)

HAHA! I love that...Do you have a lot of people to curse out before then?

Is there really a death clock??? I'm going to google it after I'm done here! LOL!
Oh, and yes...I am ashamed ( ashamed , I tell ya!) that I am one of the reasons some female drivers have a bad name. It's that whole speeding away from the cops when they're chasing you thing...I got nervous, so I drove faster!!! OMG...

I don't blame you for being confused driving in Montreal. I think it's like driving with your life in your hands. It totally freaks me out whenever we're there, and of course it's usually during St. Jean Baptiste weekend, or some summer festival. All those one way streets - no wonder you kept driving!
No offence meant to any Montrealers here, BTW!
