Get to know me better!

I’ve never really met this chick, but cutie-pie over at Two-Thirds Hazel always has the best quizzes and prompts.  She posted this the other day, so I grabbed it up – feel free to laugh J Then grab these up and do these yourself!

  1. Something you will…

refuse to do for the rest of your life: Hm.  It’s hard to never say never, but I think I won’t drive a minivan.  My parents had one, but driving a minivan isn’t really me.  Also, I will never use the derogatory f-word that is used against gay people.  That word makes me feel sick.  Sorry to get heavy so quickly!

always do forever: I will always make weird voices to my pets and talk to them.  I tell Coco all the time that “Mama loves you,” and that “You da best dog in the whole world,” in this weird doggy baby voice.  I can’t help it, pets just turn me weird.


  1. Something you think is… 

certifiably disgusting: When people like snarf their snot.  I get it, you have some congestion up in your sinuses.  But that is absolutely disgusting, and I actually feel really nauseated when I hear people doing that like in a meeting or something.  Absolutely disgusting.

absolutely amazing: There is just so much.  I’m not super religious, but the way that God, that the Universe, has always taken care of me?  Amazing.  There have been things that have happened to me that I don’t always understand at the time, but when all is said and done, I’m amazed. Everything in my life, even the hard stuff, seems to have happened for a reason.  That amazes me.

  1. A compliment you’ve been given that’s made you…

feel on top of the world:  Someone told me the other day that I make them feel really special when I ask them questions about their life.  I make it a point to do that and to pay attention to the answers because I’m genuinely interested, but it was cool that someone noticed.  Also, folks have told me I’m creative before and I’m like…me?  But I’m definitely cool with that.

pretty upset: Eh. This gross guy once said “Is this the YMCA or Hugh Hefner’s house!” upon seeing me one day at work.  I was disgusted.  Who told that guy that sort of “compliment” was okay.  How would he feel if someone spoke to his mother/sister/cousin/daughter that way?

  1. A name you…

hate: I’m not sure.

love: Hm. I have always loved the name Poppy.  Poppy Elizabeth.  I’m not sure why.

  1. Something people say about you that you…

know is entirely false: I think sometimes folks think I’m dumb.  I sort of sound like Hilary Banks (Fresh Prince) when I talk, but I’m really sharp.  No one had told me I’m dumb, but sometimes, I sense that because I really like to watch reality TV and love pop culture, that my intelligence is sometimes in question.

think is on point: My sisters say I’m the Kourtney of the bunch.  I get it.  I can be into some strange things.  Kombucha, soda water, and my salads.  I get how that can strike folks as a little odd.

  1. A taste you…

can’t stand: Mushrooms.  Broccoli.  The gourds.  Hot onions.

can’t get enough of: Franks Red Hot Extra Hot hot sauce.  I love anything hot.  Mmm.

  1. A song you always…

turn off immediately:  Friggin anything by Nickelback.  What a terrible sound they have!

belt out the lyrics to: Jealous – Nick Jonas.  I sound damn good at it too!

  1. Animal you…

fear: I hate little roachy things.

need in your life right this instant: None.  Absolutely not a one.  We have too many damned pets in this house, and I am not looking to increase that number anytime soon.  Not cool.

  1. Something you…

will never ever eat:  Mushrooms.  Because they taste like shit and can be slimy.

 would eat for every meal if you were given the chance: Mexican?  Or Asian food.  I love sushi (Japan), egg drop soup (China), and making my own pad thai (Thailand!).

  1. To enhance your looks you…

would love to, but would probably never resort to:  I don’t think I would do anything.  Maybe I would get under my eyes filled if they got baggy?  But I’m relying heavily on Roc Retinol and water to keep the bags at bay.

just stick to: BB Cream, mascara, eyeliner, and a spritz of perfume.

Feel free to steal it!!  

ow was your weekend?

Blogmopolitan Quiz…round 3!

In order to save money, I don’t have subscriptions to a lot of magazines, but if I had all the money (and all the time) in the world, I would totally do it.  One of my really really shameful pleasures is Cosmo mag.  Yes, I’m completely aware that there is really not a whole lot of substance that comes out of a Cosmo mag, however, I’m continually impressed by the women that they put on their cover.  You may not always be a fan of the women, but the one thing they all have in common is that the women featured on the cover are strong, beautiful women who’ve been through things, and have conquered, or have worked through their demons.

Some of my faves include the Demi Lovato cover, the Khloe Kardashian cover, and the P!nk cover.

Demi Lovato Cosmo coverAnd because you guys are so awesome, there’s a look at Demi, and a look at my engagement ring.  Free peeks!

Okay, so one part of the issue I like is the Cosmopolitan Quiz, which usually is at the front of the issue.  And I did one of these quzzies and did a part two from Two Thirds Hazel a few months back.  So here, I present to you the Blogmopolitan Quiz, for the third part!

The Blogmopolitan Quiz 2Enjoy!  Much more about your favorite blogger!

Now tell me something random about your Wednesday!

Blogmopolitan Quiz Part Dos!

I’m sorry, that quiz I posted a few days ago was so fun, so I decided to do it again, with a few changes and a few more answers.  Again, I totally yanked the quiz from Two Thirds Hazel, who is my American Idol, as far as blogs are concerned.  (Seriously, her blog is so pretty!)

Okay, here goes!

The Blogmopolitan QuizA few takeaways from this quiz?

  • I love my black eyeliner.  Seriously, when Amy Winehouse burst onto my scene, mid-college, not only was I totally obsessed with her music and amazing voice, but her tats and eyeliner were, and continue to bet the bombest of any eyeliner that anyone in Hollywood bangs with.
  • I hate mushrooms.  I don’t care how vegetarian I am, I wish people would stop putting a giant mushroom on a hamburger bun and claiming that I’m supposed to enjoy something that tastes like dirt.
  • Teen pop = delicious, and I really get annoyed by people who just hate teen pop for the sake of hating it.  Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato, Miley, Justin Bieber, One Direction.  I truly enjoy that music.  Don’t get me wrong, I love the classics as well, but try running the last mile of a marathon to Hall and Oates, and you’ll get what I mean about the teeny boppers.  They have their place!
  • Like 4 people call me Cher.  My college roommate, anyone from Twisted Measure, my college a cappella group, and my cousins.  If you are not one of those people, it’s probably best not to call me Cher.

Your turn!  Do ittttt!  Link me up! Link her up!  I wanna see yo answers!

The Blogmopolitan Quiz

Numero uno, do you guys know that my girl Khloé Kardashian is on the cover of Cosmo this month, and she’s looking great, post-divorce from Lamar Odom.

1393349859000-Cosmo-Khloe-KardashianMy job is not to sit up here and bash a person pretty obviously struggling with addiction, but as far as this blogger is concerned, Lamar screwed up and needs to be working, day and night to get this beautiful and very funny lady back.  She’s my favorite Kardashian.

Now speaking of Cosmo, how much do you love their quizzes?  Well, thanks to Erin, over at Two Thirds Hazel, you guys have a Blogmopolitan Quiz on the best celebrity of them all, MICHAEL JACKSON me! 🙂

The Blogmopolitan Quiz.jpgMy takeaways?

1. I asked other people.  Apparently, I’m a Carrie, and I’m not sure how to feel about that, especially given that she screwed Aiden.  I mean, the movie was great and all, but do you think Aiden would have left her at the alter?

2.  I love love.  It’s probably my first love, with animals and physical activity as a close second.

3.  Running and blogging is what I’m supposed to be doing.  I will do this until blogs are lame, the same way MySpace went.

Are far as personality goes, who are you?  A Carrie,  a Charlotte, Miranda, or Samantha?
