From a person who will almost never say no to a game of tag - especially when it doesn't involve running like a chicken with it's head cut off...we play it as a family here sitting on the couch sometimes while watching TV.  Yes, these days it has become an inactive game in this house - especially in the winter months - but still as fun and instead of it being TAG, you're IT, my kids have managed to make it one word - TagurIT.  They have good ideas sometimes as does the bloggy world creating yet another variation of inactive tag.  I was tagged last week by Sarcasm Goddess last week and because of her meaty questions, the juicy answers couldn't be avoided so here we go..

Before we get to the questions and the tagged, here are the rules: 
  • You must post these rules.
  • Each person must post 11 things about herself on their blog.
  • Answer the questions the “tagger” listed for you in her post, and create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer.
  • Choose 11 people to tag and link to them in the post.
  • Let each blogger know that you have tagged them.

Here's My 11 Things..
1. My middle name is Eileen.
2. I can do math fast in my head.
3.  I play piano.
4. I'm 5'1" on a good day.
5. I need more coffee
6. My cat's name is Dweezil.
7.  My mom's birthday is the day after mine.
8. My bladder is smaller than a pea..I'm sure of it.
9. My PITA won't go away.
10.  Sometimes I feel like I'm losing my mind.
11. I could only come up with ten things.

Here's the questions answered..
1. What reality show would you most hate to be on?
Anything involving eating or lying with tarantulas - I can't stand spiders, or choking things down for money..ahem..some things you couldn't pay me enough to do. Like live with Snooki.

2. Would you rather have your spouse/significant other forget your birthday or buy you a dress that's three sizes too big?  Show your work.

Well I once got a pair of Blackhawks boxers that were a couple sizes too small and when I told him I couldn't use them, he told me take it as a compliment..obviously I didn't marry that one.

3. Where do unicorns get their magic?

I will have to ask my daughter and get back to you on this.

4. What dessert best describes you?

Did you see This Cake is a Lie?  Not that one - I gotta go with a caramelicious number of some sort.

5. Where do you fall on the paranoia scale: One being totally not paranoid, and Ten being they're out to get me!  Explain.

I'm mostly pretty mellow, I am against the man but I don't sit around with foil on my head so I hope that explains it..

6. Salty or sweet?  I'm talking food, obviously.  But I suppose you can answer that any way you see fit. 
Both - with one the other is craved which is why chocolate covered pretzels are always a hit..and probably why someone invented chocolate covered bacon.

7. If a train leaves Boston at 6 a.m. going 100 miles per hour and another train leaves Chicago at 11:00 a.m. going 250 miles per hour at what time will the bacon be most delicious?

You lost me when I realized this was a word problem but when in doubt, always choose bacon!

8. What modern convenience would cause you so sit in the corner and eat your hair if you had to go without it for the rest of your life?


9. What is your least favorite word?

The C word

10. Which is creepier, a teletubby or a furby?
I gotta go with the teletubby..should I be ashamed I had both? As an adult?

11. What makes your blog awesome sausage?

It's either the coffee or the bacon I'm thinking

I'm going to attempt to tag people who haven't already been tagged..we'll see how that goes..

Daddy's In Charge?
The Fence
From the Compound

My questions:
1. Which room do you spend the most time in?
2. How big is the closet in your bedroom?
3.  Have you ever locked yourself out of the house/car? Do tell.
4. How many pair of shoes do you own?  
5.  What was your first job?
6. Who was on your bedroom walls growing up?
7. How do you take your coffee?

I've locked myself out of my car...WHILE IT WAS RUNNING....twice. :(

I'm gonna go sit in the corner now.

My dad had to pick me up at a gas station one time - not pretty. Fortunately I have a car now that won't allow me to lock the car while it's running.

Lady Estrogen said...

Hehehe... but I LOVE the 'C' word. YEAH!!!
I'm with you about the spiders. The moment I had to interact with one in any way shape or form, dead or alive, I'd be outta there.

Leighann said...

There's such a thing as chocolate covered bacon?
where do I get it???

Kate F. said...

Oh I have TOTALLY done that too! Isn't it annoying???

Kate F. said...

Since I will probably not have time to write a post with all of these (hehe!) I thought I would just answer #8. Chrysler LeBaron Convertable - VERY old... but I was SO proud of it! (P.S. I did buy it - most of it at least - it was very cheep (believe me!) :)

I've learned to like it a little because of you.
I watched one just recently where the chick got covered in bees while the guy ate six of them before he could cut her way in hell
