BYOC - Bring Your Own Crazy!

It’s BYOC day! Bring Your Own Crazy! We answer a few questions to get to know each other better and to give our blog brains a break! Copy and paste to your own blog and enjoy!!

1. Alright – forgive me – we’re gonna get a little personal here. I was flipping through my organizer and saw in big bright letters “ANNUAL PHYSICAL DUE” coming up soon. Then I remembered that last year my lady bits doc said that since I haven’t had a bad pap in so many years – that I don’t have to come back for another 3 years if I don’t want to. What the what? Did you guys know that?

No speculum in the vaginulum?

**NOTE**: The above situation is from my friend Draz....not moi. FYI.

Anywhoozle – it sounds all good but really – do any of you follow this medical rule? Do you go every three years if you’ve never had a bad pap?

I go EVERY year. I think everyone should. With all the cancer....cervical cancer to name one......that is out there right now, I would hate to wait till something is really wrong before I go in to have it checked out.  Better safe than sorry is what I always say.

2. If you read, what are you reading right now? Or how about what is your fave music right now?

I'm reading The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest by Stieg Larsson.  And a JD Robb book, I think #7 or something, can't remember the title. I read constantly.  Didn't always used to be that way though. In 3rd grade I had a kindergartener's reading level and my teacher at the time really worked with me to improve it.  Also my mom read to me and made me read to her every single night.  By the end of the year I had improved to a 4th grader's level and i've had my nose in a book ever since.  I like anything from sci-fi, trashy romance, mysterial, crime novels, etc.

Music. Ya, I'm also not normal AT ALL in my taste of music. Right now a techno version of Somebody's Watching Me by the Beatfreakz is on.  And Marvin Gaye is next.  I also like country, rap, hip hop, 50s-90s, blues....ok, almost everything but opera.  Yup...not normal.

3. Name some of your favorite smells.

Jeez, this is a hard one. I could say numerous amounts of different kinds of food, but that'll just make me more starving than I already am.  Ummm, fresh cut grass, my puppy (when he's recently bathed, unlike now, smelling like a dumpster mixed with stagnant water), Ryan's smell, he has a distinct smell and I love it, Colorado pine trees!! Those are my favorites.

4. Showers or baths? Shampoo only or shampoo & conditioner? Shave daily or just when you start feeling and looking like an ape?

Shower. I rarely take a bath. But I was just thinking the other day that I should really relax in some bubbles. Shampoo and conditioner, in very small amounts because my hair is sooo short.  And I'm totally gross on the shaving....definitely the pits get shaved every day, but the legs.....really just when I know I'm going to have to wear shorts. I hate shaving my legs, but what women doesn't.

5. Repeat question: Summarize your week in real life and in blogland.   

Blogland: FINALLY I'm here on a friday so I can do BYOC! Gosh, it feels like eternity since the last time I did it!  I've been away on vacation for like ever....ok, just 5 days, but it felt like forever in a good way like I hate working so I loved the vacation and we had a freaking blast with great friends; and in a bad way that I had no internet so I missed you little munchkins something fierce. 

Real life: There has been no exercising or eating right or healthy mindset in so long. I'm turning that little crazy train around on Monday. I'm going to start my running up, Beth Ann has inspired me to start taking some work out classes so I'm looking at those, I want to also do some weight lifting of some sort, and my eating is going right back to healthified with low-low-low carb, tons of protein, veggies, and a little fruit.  I talked about negative calorie foods that you actually burn more calories digesting them than what they make up in my post yesterday, so I'm going to make sure that I'm eating a lot of those fruits and veggies on that list. 

That's about all folks.  I need to get back to that thing I call my employment (or Satan's outhouse, either way really). Everyone have a fabulous Friday!!!! 


  1. I even love Opera. I really love Natalie Dessay. She's wonderful!

  2. nice! and i like you're new bloggie look, cute. my favorite smell is kansas after a thunderstorm. it's just happy!

    i'm not sure if you're a Y member or not, but there is a KILLER spin class, monday nights at the andover one i go to. wowza. i get my butt handed to me every single time. but it does the trick. so, you know :)

    happy friday, welcome back to bloggie land!

  3. I can't tell you how weird (yet motivational to me!) that I inspire someone with fitness. Man, what a year can change!

    I love that you had a teacher that changed your path on reading. I think reading especially with children is so important. Good teachers rock!

  4. YAY! You're here for BYOC! That makes me happy!

  5. What a great 3rd grade teacher you had!!! That gave me the warm and fuzzies!

    I love just about any series - but I especially love the JD Robb series. It's one of the very few things I've read more than once.


I love hearing from y'all, so leave a comment!
