My Not-So Beautiful Blog

I've been tagged! By, well, a lot of people, lol. ;)



Thanks to everyone who tagged me, I really appreciate it! I am really bad about coming up with things (seven WHOLE things!?) about myself that you don't already know, so some of you may have already heard some of these:


1. I have secret fantasies about life suddenly becoming a musical, and being able to step outside into a huge dance number where everybody I meet falls into line behind me. I also want life to be like a movie where everybody's shopping bag has a huge loaf of french bread sticking out of it.

2. If there is a fountain anywhere near me and it is of a relatively agreeable temperature out, I WILL get into it.

3. The fight scenes between Cato and Inspector Clousea in the original Pink Panther movies CRACK ME UP every single time I see them. The slow-mo NEVER gets old!

4. It's a life goal of mine to see every national park in the US, and I'm well on my way. I also want to see every national park in every country I ever visit, but that would mean a lot of starting over because places like Canada have an awful lot of them.

5. I am deathly, deathly, deathly, deathly, deathly afraid of needles coming anywhere near me. I can give injections to horses all the live long day. But needles near ME? Dear god, I'd rather go to jail for killing the doctor coming at me with a needle than actually get the shot. I'd rather gouge out my own eyes with a rusty spoon than get a shot. I'd rather die painfully from whatever horrible disease I had than get the shot that would save my life from said horrible disease. It's that bad.

6. I've had a LOT of interesting haircolors. Bleach blonde with red highlights, black with red highlights, black with purple highlights, regular purple, black and bleach blonde, black blonde and red, bright red... and once upon a time I had the sweetest faux hawk ever. I WANT IT BACK.

7. In a 12-hour period, I decapitated a deer AND t-boned a school bus right off the road with my old Jeep, which was bright orange and named Taco, although it also earned the nickname the Murder Machine after this. In honor of the deer, I chained antlers to the front of it. I also rocketed off a cliff, rear-ended another Jeep the same make, model, and color of mine, and did an over rotated 180 on the freeway into an overpass with my sister in the car, with my father on the phone at the time. He was not amused.


Bonus #8: I love being alive.




And I tag ALL OF YOU! Everyone who hasn't already gotten this award, consider yourself tagged!

Have you been to Death Valley? There's a four day (optional, you can do as many days as you want) endurance ride there every New Years - you should go kick ass in the AEC's first, then leg up Gogo for endurance and come do DVE in, oh, let's say 2013.

PS I'll do the driving. ;)

And here I thought I was the only one who was disappointed that my high school cafeteria never burst into song and dance like something out of Grease...

Nicole Redman said...

I knew all of those things! But that's because I'm your wifey :-)

Andrea said...

You knew all these things but you did NOT know that I have a donkey living downstairs? What kind of a wifey are you!

Goodness I'm glad someone else has the same fear as me. I am SOOOO afraid of needles. I have a medical conditon that required me to get blood drawn often. Memories come to mind of three male nurses having to hold down 12 year old me. It's not a fun time. AT ALL. I feel your pain, or fear, on this one.

Nicole Redman said...

A wifey who has not seen you or your living quarters in far too long, obviously

I hear you about the needles. Personally they don't bother me but everytime I hurt myself I have a major panic attack and am incapacitated for almost an hour. Not very nice =(

Hey..just stumbled on your blog via Denali's blog. I'm on my way trying out barefoot w/ my OTTB who has laminitis so i was excited to see u mentioning barefoot in your top section.
Seems I'm noticing a lot more barefooters than I thought! :)

Totally Random: Where in PA did you get GOGO? I grew up in NW PA. I also went through a similar situation with my mare, I left her with someone I trusted, and came back from Denmark to a nightmare on four legs. 150 pounds under weight, crazy, crazy, crazy!!

Denali, I got her from the breeder in PA when she was 5, but left her with a trainer in MI (where my parents live), so it was an unrelated case. Boy can I ever sympathize though!

Do you watch the show "Glee"? Based on your #1, I think you'd love it. You should be able to watch official episodes free online since your in the states. Or it's easy enough to find downloads.
