I want to thank Bree at In Love and Words for tagging me to tell 100 Truths. Go check her out; I love her blog and she is the sweetest person ever! I might have given up blogging without her encouragement at my start. She’s awesome!
1 What’s your name?
Ginny (well, Virginia, but that’s a grandma’s name)
2 Any nicknames or aliases?
Betty (because I laugh like Betty Rubble), V-A, GinnyBob
3 Your gender?
4 Your star sign?
5 How old are you?
(do I have to say?) Fine! 43. 😦
6 Your relationship status?
Engaged! Wedding is planned for March.
7 Any children?
Yes but they all have four legs. 😉
8 Any pets?
YAAAAS! Two dogs — Teddy the Pug, Wallie the Terrier — and (for now) one kitty, Dollie Madison, AKA the Furst Lady.
9 Any tattoos or piercings?
Yup! 4 tattoos (a semicolon on my left wrist, a star on my right shoulder, a Celtic friendship knot on the inside of my right ankle and a flower on the outside of my right ankle) and four piercings (two in each ear).
10 What do you like about yourself?
11 What do you dislike about yourself?
That I have such a hard time finding stuff I like about myself. LOL
12 Righty or lefty?
Righty (but – and I know this is weird – I eat and drink left handed)
13 The last thing you drank:
14 The last thing you ate:
A chocolate chip cookie
15 Your last phone call:
My friend and co-worker, Darvin!
16 Your last text message:
My friend who sends me funny memes all day long.
17 Your last email:
A work email (it was super boring too)
18 The last song you listened to:
U2 Vertigo (I feel I must state here that it wasn’t by choice)
19 The last book you read:
20 The last time you cried:
Wednesday night. It was a whole thing.
21 The last blog you read:
22 The last person you spoke to:
23 The last place you visited:
My bestie’s house
24 Your last holiday abroad:
A year ago I cruised with friends to celebrate their wedding. We went to The Bahamas.
25-48 apparently disappeared… Have you heard Cheech and Chong’s song “Santa and His Old Lady?” Where they talk about the 12 Days of Christmas and claim that the days between Boxing Day and New Years are the “Mystery Days?” These seem to be the mystery questions!
49 Do you believe in aliens?
I’d think it’s pretty arrogant for us to assume we are the only life forms in the universe. But I also don’t believe in little green men that fly around in space ships.
50 Do you believe in miracles?
51 Do you believe in the power of positive thinking?
100%! It saves.
52 Do you believe in love at first sight?
I’m dubious. Though my fiance claims he knew he wanted to marry me on our first date, so he’d probably disagree with me.
53 Can money make you happy?
Not gonna lie — yes. Yes it can.
54 Would you describe yourself as a feminist?
55 Are you pro-life or pro-choice?
Though I’d never have one, I support a woman’s right to choose.
56 Do you have strong political beliefs?
Yes, much to many of my friends’ disappointment.
57 Do you have strong religious beliefs?
No. I am spiritual however.
58 What do you think the most important thing you can give a child is?
I agree with Bree — love and books!
59 Are you eating anything right now?
60 Are you drinking anything right now?
That same Diet Coke from earlier.
61 What are you listening to right now?
The very loud air conditioner in my office (I haven’t left yet for the day).
62 What are you thinking about right now?
Well, now I’m thinking about how loud that freaking air conditioner is! Unreal!
63 What are you waiting for right now?
The day I can pick up my new kitten, Tiger Seguin. Yeah. He’s named after hockey player Tyler Seguin.
64 What are you most excited about right now?
I should say my wedding, but my most immediate excitement centers around the above. Tiger. Seguin.
65 What’s your pet peeve right now?
66 What’s your favourite thing right now?
Ohmigosh, I bought these new Tempurpedic uncrushable pillows at Bed Bath and Beyond last night and I legit want to go home and put my head on it again. Divine!
67 If you weren’t answering these questions, what would you be doing right now?
68 Your first best friend:
Rebecca Morgan, she lived around the corner.
69 – 73 More mystery questions???
74 Your first job:
I worked as a page at the local library shelving books. It was a great job for a teenager!
75: Your first childhood memory:
Hmmm…. I remember The PIrates of the Caribbean at Disneyland. I must’ve been about two.
Which Would You Choose?
76 Love or money?
OK, love. I’m a romantic at heart.
77 Twitter or Facebook?
78 Hook up or relationship?
79 Dogs or cats?
This is an impossible choice. That’s like asking me which I’d rather have stop working — my heart or my lungs. I need both!!!
80 Coffee or tea?
81 Beer or wine?
82 Sweet or savoury?
83 Introvert or extrovert?
I’m definitely introverted. I always need down time after being around lots of people.
84 Vampires or werewolves?
Vampires (but not sparkly ones)
85 Seaside or countryside?
86 Summer or winter?
87 Books or movies?
88 Horror or comedy
89 Do you wish you could change your past?
Sometimes. Though I’m pretty happy where I am (finally) and doubt that I would be if I didn’t go through everything in my past. Sure would be nice to skip a few things though!
90 What’s your dream job?
It used to be to be a female Roger Ebert, reviewing films from a feminist POV. But now I dream of being in publishing, like an editor or writer.
91 What’s your guilty pleasure?
Ben & Jerry’s
92 What are you afraid of?
Is “everything” an option? Definitely clowns. Yeesh.
And spiders. And, because of this meme, Tom Hardy (and Chris Pratt, Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth — basically all the Chrisses — and Tyler Seguin. I’m terrified of Tyler Seguin).
93 What was the first thing you wanted to be when you grew up?
94 If you could have any super power, what would it be?
95 If you could change anything about your life what would it be?
A better paying, more engaging job.
96 Would you want immortality?
Can I have a buddy to share it with? Like my fiance or even my best friend? Then, yes. But I’d hate to spend eternity losing friends.
97 If you could interview anyone alive or dead who would you choose?
Who’s the guy that through all that money out of a plane? D.B. Cooper? Yeah. Him.
98 Would you say you are happy?
99 What one piece of advice would you give to yourself at age eighteen?
Don’t stay home because of a boyfriend. Go away to school and don’t be fearful.
100 Where would you like to be in five years’ time?
Maybe in a management position? Owning a larger home and blissfully happy in my marriage.
So that’s a little bit about me… It may not be 100 Truths because of all the mystery questions, but all my answers were 100 percent true, so there’s that.
Now it’s time to tag people. If you don’t want to participate, that’s totally cool. But I found this one to be really fun and I’d love to read your answers!
(I know, I’ve tagged you before but you’re sweet so I’m doing it again!)
Books and Blends
(because I love your blog and who deosn’t love books and wine?!? Seriously, let me speak to that person).
