Round Robin Tuesday!

Round robin Tuesday! Here we go!

1. What was the silliest/weirdest thing you were afraid of when you were a child?
The closet door being open at night. COULD. NOT. HANDLE. IT. Always thought there was someone in the closet watching me while I slept. Still don't like it. I make sure all closet doors are closed before I lay down and turn out the light. Yeah, I'm still a kid. Sue me.

2. Best memory from your childhood?
I didn't have a childhood that I look back on with fond affection but the one excellent memory I do have is from when I was 11. On the last day of school, my mom picked me up from school and we drove STRAIGHT THRU to Orlando, Florida, and spent a week at the theme parks. Nothing went wrong that week and we got along famously (something that didn't always happen). I don't have alot of good memories where my mom is concerned but that one will always stick out because she spent her last dollar to take me on vacation. The one bright spot in a tattered relationship.

3. Do you believe in ghosts? Why or why not?
I do believe in ghosts. When I was in junior high, we lived in a house that had alot of "weird" things about it. Both my mom and I would see a light in the hallway some nights but if we got up to see what it was...there was nothing there. I never had this happen but my mom heard laughing a couple of times. Bedroom doors and closet doors would be randomly open and/or closed sometimes when we would come home. We both would try and laugh it off and we even gave our ghost a cute, funny name to make it seem not so scary but...it didn't really help. We only lived there a couple of years and I was more than happy to move that time. So yeah...I believe in ghosts.

Round Robin Tuesday...I mean Wednesday!

SO sorry I'm late on my answers! I was unavoidably detained! Anywho...here we go!

1. Name something about yourself that makes you insecure and state why.
WOW...hmm. So many things to choose from. I'd have to say, though, the biggest thing I'm insecure about is people leaving me. Yes, I've been to enough counseling to know that I have daddy issues but I'm still TOTALLY insecure about people hanging around. In every relationship I've had, up to this point, I've tried to make sure I did everything needed to keep that person around...and failed miserably every time. The Wolf is different though and we've had EXTENSIVE conversations about it but that's a completely different question and blog entry in and of itself.

2. Describe what you think the perfect sign of affection is and why.
Wrapping your arms around me. I love getting hugs...especially at random times. I'm a hugger. I hug everyone all the time. Havin' a bad day? I'll hug you. Have a great day? Hug. Randomly in my path? I may hug you as I walk by. :-)

3. What age do you see yourself being married?
29. I've never been a big fan of marriage. Seeing my mom get married and fail four times was enough to scare me off that idea. But I really, really wanna be Mrs. Wolfman. And I'm ready to be that NOW...or in the near future at least!

Tuesday Questions From Brooke and Randomness

1. How do you show your love for someone?
I took a test one time that was supposed to tell you your love language i.e. how you express love. My top one was "Physical Touch and Closeness" and that is SO very true. I love touching the people I love. Hugs, kisses, holding hands, sitting close. It probably bugs the hell out of him, but I'm constantly touching my boyfriend...even when we sleep. And that's not just reserved for guys. It was totally commonplace for me and my girls in Tulsa to hug, kiss, hold hands, lay on each other on the couch. I don't think any of them were that way before they met me...I just rubbed off on them. Literally and figuratively. I love the electricity and warmth of touch. I can't think of a more intimate and personal way to tell someone, anyone, that I love them than touching them.

2. What's your best travel story?
Swimming with dolphins in Hawaii only to realize AFTER I got back in the boat that there was a shark there too. Yeah. They let us drop into the water off the back of a boat and swim with dophins. While everyone was watching the dolphins off the back, a shark quietly made it's way to the party from the other side of the boat where no one was watching. There were three of us in the water with five dolphins. After we got back into the boat, the boat driver and the dolphin trainer are whispering to one another. They then inform us that, while there is no need to panic, we'll have to wait awhile before the next group gets in because of the shark. I don't know why anyone of us thought this way...but I guess we were all picturing some cute little two foot baby shark. We look over the side of the boat and VOILA! There's a 7 foot tiger shark. I almost passed out. From that point, never got into water deeper than my knees...and even that made me nervous.

3. Favorite beauty product that you recommend to the women (and men too,if that's their prerogative!) In your life.
I originally bought this Neutrogena soap for just my face but now I use it all over my body. I leaves my skin feeling SUPER smooth and clean. My boyfriend even tried it and now loves it!

Round Robin Tuesday

Ok...so I didn't blog last week for Round Robin Tuesday because it was my week to ask the questions and I didn't think the "asker" was supposed to answer their own questions. I don't know where I got that...I think I pulled it right out of my ass. So this week...I'll answer the three questions from last week AND the three from this week. It's a jam packed entry, ladies and gentlemen. Hold on to your asses...

Last Weeks Queso...

  1. Creativity or passion? Why?

  2. While I'm a passionate person (about certain things, mind you), I'd have to say creativity BY far! I mean, it's what I do for a living so I better be creative huh? Even as a kid, I was always doing crafts and art projects and making things out of rocks, glue and construction paper. I fell in love with art in junior high and fell in love with graphic design in high school. I never thought about doing anything else when I went to college. I don't think you can have one of these without the other but I do think one is always stronger and for me...it's creativity.

  3. Favorite Michael Jackson song and why?

  4. It's a tie between "The Way You Make Me Feel" and "Thriller". I sing "TWYMMF" to my boyfriend...in fact I did JUST that on Sunday while we were unpacking. I tried to get him to dance around with me but he wouldn't. It's just a fun, upbeat song that MAKES you wanna dance. And who DOESN'T love "Thriller"?! Yes, I know all the moves to the zombie dance.

  5. If your life was a movie, who would play you and two other major characters? Why?

  6. I asked this question because I didn't think I'd have to answer it! :-) It's a hard one but the other girls did a good job of answering so I better do the same, huh? If my life were a movie, I'd want to be played by Blake Lively (girl crush). Two other major characters? The boyfriend would have to be played by Chris Pine (because he looks like a yummy bad ass as the new Captain Kirk) and my Tulsa roommate would have to be played by Kristen Bell (the "50 Pills" version not the "Veronica Mars" version).

Now, on to this weeks queso...
  1. Name your 3 favorite junk food snacks.

  2. French fries, Doritos and popcorn. I'm addicted to fries (the best are at Wendy's), I could eat an ENTIRE bag of Doritos on my own (Cool Ranch though...that's the only kind) and when I go to the movies I HAVE TO HAVE the biggest pale of popcorn completely drenched in butter. I'm completely surprised I'm not 392 lbs.

  3. What are your thoughts on abortion?

  4. Man, good question. Do I think it's wrong? Yes and no. I think there are cases when it's acceptable and convenience is NOT one of those cases. Would I have one? Again, yes and no. Certain cases, I might. If my life were at stake? Probably. Just to get rid of an "unplanned problem"? Never. Would I try to talk a friend out of it? I would make sure she knew and thought thru all the options. Would I turn my back on a friend because of an abortion? Never.

  5. What is one thing you always look for (in terms of buying) when you go into a store?

  6. This is a bad question for me beacuse I'm a shopaholic of sorts. I never go into any kind of a store and NOT come out with something and I mean that. I could walk into a hardware store and come out with something! It's a bit of a problem. So what's one thing I look for in a store? Something to spend my money on! I seriously need help. :-)

The Wolfman Cometh

First off, SO many apologies for no postings lately. Work has been hectic. Great...but hectic. For the first time in my career, I've been put in charge of a project. In the past I've always been the worker bee that followed someone else. NOW...I'm the one being followed. From the outside, I used to think project leaders and managers had it easy. Now that I'm inside, I no longer smoke that crack. Some days I end my work day not knowing my head from a hole in the ground. Kudo's to Mr. Mister for making this job look effortless and easy.

The bigger topic of discussion, though, is that the boy is here! He rolled in to BoCo at exactly 6:42 Saturday afternoon with a big ass trailer in tow. I cannot begin to express how good it feels to live in that apartment with him finally. We spent the entire day yesterday unpacking, setting up and doing a little decorating. It also feels really good to sleep in an actual bed again. :-)

Now that Wolf and I are in an actual serious relationship I got this crazy wild notion that I needed to be completely honest and open with him. Go figger. I've tried to keep this blog *somewhat* anonymous but it contains ALOT of talk about him...so I told him about it and let him read it. He's a very private guy and I thought he would be alot more upset than he really was. He actually got a laugh out of some of the entries about how our relationship bloomed and at the same time was a little embarrassed by some of it. I assured him that it was completely anonymous and nobody that we actually "knew" read it. I told him I would do whatever he wanted me to...be that stop blogging, delete some of the entries, make it private, whatever. There are several entries that he wanted me to delete and I totally respect that. He didn't want me to stop blogging if I really enjoyed it (which I do when I have time) but he wanted me to make the entries about "us" only available to us. Lisa, over at "High Heels and Sweatshirts" was right...this is a great way to document our relationship and how it blossoms and grows but I totally respect his privacy and wishes.

So, dear readers, many of my posts will be disappearing soon. I'll still blog about normal every day stuff (especially my question posts with "Republic of Brooke" and "Private Eyes") when I have time but the intimate, private life of Wolfie and I will stay just that. Intimate and private. I started blogging partly out of boredom, partly out of a need for an honest outlet. I hope you got a laugh out of reading about my ridiculous life and antics...but it feels really good not to have anything to blog about due to the lack of drama.

Life. Is. Good.
