Tag & what’s up with the number 11?

You’d think being from NY I would have been partying it up for last night’s Super Bowl…eating up a storm & kicking back with a few beers.  Well, not so much.  Rich & I stayed home.  Rich watched the game, I watched the commercials (boring).  Exciting right?!  Unfortunately our Super Bowl boxes were not lucky ones, though one guy just so happened to have the same numbers on both sheets & killed by winning the final $1,000.  Sweet!  I think he spent $40 total on his boxes.  *sigh*

What I did do was catch up on e-mails since it was another unplugged weekend & found that Brooke, over at Brooke: Not on a Diet tagged me to do this fun “get to know ya” game that you’ll see bouncing around the blog world!  Be sure to see if you’re tagged by me at the end of the post!…You’re it!

2. You must post 11 random things about yourself.
3. Answer the questions set for you in their post.
4. Create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer.
5. Go to their blog and tell them you’ve tagged them.

11.  I found it insanely hard to find 11 people/bloggers to tag.


11 Questions from Brooke!

1) If you were a crayon, what color would you be and why?  Orange, I love autumn and just maybe some kid would use me to color a tree. 

2) Last movie you watched?  Cars – Seriously – we bought it for Natie last week & have watched it 5 times since then.

3) Last book you read? – Oh boy, I’d say Pregnancy Week by Week – yeah, it’s been that long since I picked up a book.

4) Most amount of money you’ve won at the casino or playing the lottery? – $27 on a scratch off I got for my 27th birthday, which is the 27th of Sept.

5) Favorite drink, alcoholic and non? – Alcoholic it’s between a pint of Guinness & a Margarita – with salt.  Non – water or unsweetened iced tea..oh wait – how can I forget coffee!

6) What is your favorite thing to cook? – My Mom’s lasagna.  It tastes just like she used to make it.

7) Any tattoos? If so,what are they? – None

8) What’s your favorite scary movie? – Not a big scary movie person, but I guess old school & say Psycho.

9) What website do you visit the most? – Hotmail – boring, I know, but it’s my e-mail.  Other than that it would have to be Weight Watchers – etools!

10) If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go? – It’s a toss between Italy & Ireland.

11) Silliest thing you have ever done?  I’m pretty much silly 24/7, so I can’t think of anything that stands out as being the silliest.  I wish I could!

  1. Too funny… we sure got to know more about you with this post.. I had to grin at the splashing of Holy Water over Natie.. I’m sure I would have done that to my daughter had I thought of it!!

    • Lori says:

      Funny thing is I had something else in that spot & shortly before posting I had to tame the terrible two temper tantrum with some Holy Water & I thought – hmmm…this is perfect to add to the post! 😀

  2. Sarah says:

    I will play – just need to write it up 🙂

  3. Brooke Ann says:

    I’m horribly afraid of spiders too! Ick! Also, Twitter can be confusing, but as soon as you figure it out, it can be addicting! Lol

    • Lori says:

      I think I’m afraid of that too… once I actually take the time to figure it out I won’t want to get off. I was glued to reading everyone tweets during Big Brother – my Summer guilty pleasure. 😛

  4. Oh I love these lists, such a great way to learn about others! I actually just did one last week (http://betterwithveggies.com/2012/02/11-questions-things-you-may-not-know-about-me/), so I’ll probably wait a few more weeks to do another, but thank you so much for the tag! 🙂

    I’m with you on spiders – evil, evil, evil!! I have make my parents come “rescue me” from a huge spider in my house as an adult. I’m getting a little better, but spiders & I will never be friends!

    • Lori says:

      I have to check out that link! I can’t wait to read it Heather! 🙂

      Spiders…seriously! I once had an apartment I had to move out of because I ended up consuming too much tequila at night in order to survive the giant black spiders I’d encounter in the bathroom! I recall sitting on my kitchen counter calling my Mom upstate crying because they were HUGE. (faint)

  5. Biz says:

    OMG, I can remember going out after work for happy hour, drinking for a few hours, then maybe having an appetizer, going home and crashing – those were the days, huh?!

    And thank God I am not the only one who can’t figure out what the f_ck Twitter is all about – so confusing I have no idea who the hell is “talking” to who!

    Thanks for the shout out Lori! 😀

  6. Its like you read my mind! You seem to grasp so much approximately this, like you wrote the ebook
    in it or something. I feel that you just can do with a few percent to force the message house a little bit, but instead of that, that is wonderful
    blog. A fantastic read. I’ll definitely be back.
