Mean Girl to the Rescue!


What were you doing 10 years ago?

Slogging away in a retail job, and meeting the clown-suited, but lovable ass who would become my husband.

What were you doing a year ago?

Appearing relaxed but inwardly freaking out that I had agreed to get married (I'm kinda gun-shy).

5 snacks you enjoy?

  • Jamoca ice cream (or any variant of coffee chip)
  • Jalapeno potato chips
  • chocolate-covered raisins
  • Wasabi peas
  • Toast and tea

5 songs you know all the lyrics to:

  • "There is a Light That Never Goes Out," The Smiths
  • "Don't Dream It's Over," Crowded House
  • "Two Step," Throwing Muses
  • "You Do Something to Me," Cole Porter (Sinead O'Connor and Ella Fitzgerald versions)
  • "Absolutely Cuckoo," The Magnetic Fields

5 things you would do if you were a millionaire:

  • Buy a house with enough land to have a large vegetable garden
  • One word: shoes
  • Make donations to a short list of charities
  • Sock away money in a coffee can or under a mattress, because I'm weird like that
  • Buy people things anonymously

5 bad habits:

  • Chewing my cuticles
  • Swearing. A lot.
  • Not flossing
  • Leaving clean clothes in the laundry basket for, literally, weeks
  • Letting my temper get the better of me

5 things I like doing:

  • Cooking
  • Thrifting
  • Singing (though I am god-awful at it)
  • Painting my toenails
  • Reading

Great list. I can't believe I know all the words to Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody"!

Mrs. Harridan, you are delightful. I hope you enjoyed your Chili

I love that Cole Porter song! Do you have the tribute album? I think that's the only place I've seen that Sinead version.

SV, that is impressive - isn't that song, like, 11 minutes long? Good show!

TB, why thank you {blushing}. The chili was delicious, and I even took photos. Anyone wanting the recipe, please email me and I will give it up.

Mignon, I used to have the "Red, Hot & Blue" tape (whoa, we're going back in time here) until my college roommate stole it. I do believe I have the mp3 somewhere. There are a few stinkers on there (The Thompson Twins doing "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" springs to mind), but overall it's a good listen. Not a patch on the Ella songbook though (swoon!).

OMG I have that Red Hot and Blue Album on my iPod, but you know how it mixes up compilations unless you search by album? I don't think I've ever listened to it from beginning to end. I guess I need to.

PS You looked radiant on your wedding day. Were the first set of pic's with your hair down from the rehearsal?

1.) GORGEOUS wedding pics! You have a way about you that is simultaneously noble, spunky, and happy. Very unique.

2.) LOVE the word "thrifting." Did you make that up, or am I just out of the loop?

LMAO... Your hubby dressed in a CLOWN suit his last day? Omg that's classic! How can you not love that? Great list. I especially love the food section. I'm borderline drooling.

Love it and love the pics! You look so happy and that is fantastic!
