Blame Rogue Update BLONDIE ADDED Bea/Minelle/Dana's Q added

So I was laying in bed this morning on my e-reader checking out my emails, when I noticed I received one from  Rogue" I've nominated you for a Liebster Award.  Please don't kill me.".  Seeing as I had no idea I thought, "okay" here is the info you seek on the Liebster Awards and my subsequent answers.

Here are the rules:
  • When one receives the award, one posts 11 random facts about oneself and answers the 11 questions asked by the person who nominated you.
  • Pass the award onto 11 other blogs (while making sure one notifies the blogger that one nominated them!)
  • One writes up 11 NEW questions directed towards YOUR nominees.
  • One is not allowed to nominate the blog who nominated one's own blog!
  • One pastes the award picture into one's blog. (You can google the image, there are plenty of them!

Here are Rogue's questions

1.  What is the first thing you notice about a man you just met? ( visually) his shoes
2.  What celebrity do you resemble? Susan Sarandon- so I've been told- I'm assuming the Rocky Horror Picture Show version

 Who was your first kiss?  You know, I honestly don't remember.  I guess for a grade school kisser he wasn't very good

      What is your favorite family tradition? I will tell you our most fun. Because we have such a large extended family, and none of us want for nothing, for Christmas we buy gifts that are under $15 and cleverly wrap them up.  We play a game to see what order we choose a gift from the middle of the room.  You can steal from others to.  We don't know what the gift is until it is opened at the end of the game.  Most of the gifts are hilarious.  We pay attention all year to find the 'perfect' gift.

                  What is your favorite ethnic food?  hands down Italian

                Do you exaggerate when telling a story? If it is for a laugh, absolutely

                What is your favorite cologne?  I'm not sure.  Every time I smell one on someone I tell them they smell good, but I don't really like Barney wearing cologne. It give me a headache

                 What is the most daring thing you ever did? I am not a very daring person...I'll choose something lame considering this community and say, ask Barney to consider a Dd lifestyle

                 What is the funniest movie you ever saw? Trains Plane and Automobiles

                 Favorite junk food, salty or sweet? Salty.  Ruffle potato chips, with plain sour cream, and cold pepsi no ice....

               Favorite trash read? um...I guess Sherbroke Bride...I read the series on the beach this summer.

              Do you exercise? I am supposed to....grrr...first Dd spanking was because I didn't.  I like to walk, and I have  a weighted hula hoop ( um I don't do them together)

Fine Bea-cuz I love her---and hate rules ( yeh yeh) New Bea's questions

Lucy,  Roz, Kevan, Emma, Irishey, New Bea, Blue Bird, Tess, Lil Misses,  Emi.  and Jill Off to email them all


  1. You're hilarious! Love the answers. I'm with you on the bare feet, no matter the season.

    And aren't kids the greatest!?!

  2. I actually had a lot of fun doing this! I could write books on the funny things kids say! Little people are my favourite, and not just because I tower over them - at least until they turn 7 or so :)

  3. I answered your questions and reposted. Go and look!
    Great answers!

    1. Yeah...I've lost interest...

      LMBO! Seriously, I was already there...guess I should go comment in triplicate again!

  4. It is surprising the number of us that like bare feet. I am with you on the terrifying ocean one - I think it was the Jaws movies.
    Very fun, Willie

    1. I am pretty sure it was the Jaws commercials when I was 6 that did it.. I suppose because there are things in there I can't see...that can EAT me. Although even submarines freak me out

      I have NO issue swimming in a lake though.

      I have never been in or on the ocean. Going to be a little problematic when I am 'stuck' on a hunk of lava in the middle of the Pacific this winter.

  5. Great answers Willie or should I say shorty. teehee Love it when I meet someone shorter than me - makes me feel so TALL.

    Oh dear - yup - think you'd better find a way to conquer that fear of the ocean or your fears are gonna be divided when all of us from blogland are shipwrecked together. Of course, it will give us something to torture you with. LOL

  6. Shorty? Most of the women around here are short...I thought I was tall! lol

    Well you are going to have to bound and gag me (pipe down there Lucy) to get me on the damned boat to begin with!

    I didn't realize the rules of this thingie or I would have thrown your name in there too...Feel free...One of my 'peeps' can't do knock yourself out! Maybe THIS time answer what celebrity you look like...Ohhhhhh, are you a celebrity? I mean outside of blog land? Are you Angelina Jolie, because Dana really wants to meet her?

    1. Ooh you want to be bound and gagged do you? Think we can handle that. ;)

      Nope, not a celebrity - just don't look or even resemble any of the "beautiful" or even "interesting looking" people. If I new Angelina Jolie, I would definitely introduce them - Angelina could learn a lot from Dana! :D

  7. Wilma, You crack me up...and now that I am in a good mood (thanks to you)...I am having more fun with this. Thanks for my mood booster:) I should probably go back and redo my answers now that steam isn't coming out my ears...might be better answers:)

    1. Would you like me to climb in your van on Tuesday between the sick 2 year old and the unconscious hubby?

      Happy I could crack you up! I didn't think your post was grumpy!

  8. What do you mean you resemble Susan Sarandan? You're Wilma and you are famous!
    I am so surprised how many of you like going barefoot.
    I want to guess your nickname. Is it gerbil? If I'm right, email me. I promise not to tell anyone.
    My husband Scott and I were married in Milan, Italy. If you ever go there, the Bulgari Hotel is fantastic. I'll let you take Scott as an interpretor; he's fluent in Ialian.
    I told Scott you can vibrate your tongue. He said that would be an amazing skill to have. I said, "I know; I wish you had it." Lol.
    I loved reading your Q&A.


  9. Hey Kiki

    I know I am Wilma and famous, it is just some day I'd hope not to be so one dimentional.

    I said I looked like Susan Sarandon, not Richard Gere- GERBIL is not my nickname *wink*

    And if I ever get a chance to meet Leonardo di Vinci in Italy, I'll be sure to ask for Scott's assistance!

    As for the tongue you are right, I'd prefer Barney had that talent :)

    Thanks for stopping by again!

    Always a hoot


  10. OKAY how did I miss this??? Now I am going back to read!

    Sorry! And Thanks!

    This is what you meant AND I couldn't find!!!!

  11. OMG I hope I didn't just send off my comment without even putting three words down! Love your trash read, I read it too. AND thanks for at least including a practical joke even if you were an innocent by-stander.

    1. Phew...I was kinda embarassed to put down my trash read. LOL..I actually haven't finished Lyon's Gate yet. I haven't picked it up since starting ttwd.

      As for the the same guy ( Gazoo ) they put all his stuff outside with a yard sale sign once too...
