All About You

I want to know more about you. The following 5 questions were compiled by a team of (imaginary) social psychologists - experts in the field of human behaviour. These questions were found, based on years of research, testing and social experiments, to be those most likely to allow me to understand who you are and what makes you tick.

I look forward to learning all about you.

You can answer the question in the comments here or at grab the questions for a post at your blog (because they are just that good, the social psychologists really outdid themselves)... If you take them to your blog, don't forget to leave a link to the post in the comments.

1. How often do you clean your baseboards?

2. What is on your bedside table?

3. Of the pictures and other decoraty stuff hanging on the walls in your home, describe your favourite. Why is it your favourite?

4. What song do you remember with nostalgia from when you were young? A lullaby? A song you danced to with your first boy/girlfriend? A solo you sang in choir? The first rock anthem of your teenage rebelion?

5. Do you think Jude Law is hotter with our without a mustache? See pictures below:



Thank you for taking the time to fill out this questionnaire. I also want to thank my team of (imaginary) social psychologists - thank you boys! (why are the social psychologists in my head all men? weird)


Just a quick blog-related note.

I had to turn on word verification for the comments. The spam bots were out of control. I apologize to my real, non spam bot, readers. I know how annoying word verification is. I hope you'll still comment.

Okay, here goes!

1. Never. That's why I hire Joette.

2. Clock radio, Bible, empty wine glass.

3. A printer's drawer, hanging in my kitchen, filled with mementos of my life as wife and mother.

4. Cherish, by The Association. All the rage at the Jr. High dances.

5. Without. Most definitely.

Those evil, nasty spam bots! Leaves me "fumon" (my word verification)

1. What's a baseboard?
2. Books, box of tissues, pair of socks, alarm clock (never use it) and old tissues. ;)
3. I guess it would be a picture of my daughter taken by a professional photographer last October. A large picture. Love it. But need to move it from the rarely used dining/play-room to the living room. So this way I can actually look at it sometimes.
4. The Flame, Cheap Trick. Used to sing it w. my BFF on her porch/stoop while listening to the radio w. her and her mom.
5. Without. Definitely without.

That was fun! Thanks. :)

1. Right before I paint them, which has happened all of once in the past 5 years. (hmmmm...)

2. Lamp, alarm clock, 6 books, drinking glass, water pitcher, phone, and box of Cheez-its. (What!?! I needed a late night snack!)

3. A Van Gogh oil reproduction of Night over the Rhone in my bedroom. The colors are so vibrant...it just makes me happy to look at it.

4. Ace of Base- I saw the sign. My best friend and I loved that song! Constant repeat! I'm sure my parents were happy when that one faded away.

5. Without, definitely.

Now, I have something for you! A blog rockstar award! Come by the ol' blog for details!

wv: ungur- when you were growling about something, but now the problem has been fixed and you're no longer unhappy.

I clean my baseboards about every 10th of Never.

Bedside table = books, ponytail holders, some jewelry, and sometimes a glass of water.

favorite decor = small collection of birdhouses i've bought over the years

Jude is better WITHOUT a stache.

and song....hmmm...
I don't know if I have one? from childhood? Sheesh, that's hard. I skip that one.....

Mama Gayle said...


I did a blog on this.....thanks it was fun!!

Jana Burrow said...

1. You are supposed to clean them? (ok I did know that, but I almost never clean them)

2. A stack of books I want to read, a video monitor, a lamp, a box of tissues, and a figurine my husband just gave me of a mom holding a baby. Yea, it's crowded.

3. I have five pictures hanging in my guest room that go together...my favorite picture of my mom, my sister, my grandmother, my great grandmother (who is 100), and myself. It is the only decoraty thing I have put together on my own that I love.

4. Piano Man. My dad is a piano player and when he would get home from work he would unwind by playing and it was either Piano Man or Great Balls of Fire. I'm going with Piano Man.

5. With. But I am a sucker for facial hair.

This is my first time on your blog and I love it!

Hello -
I am a casting for a major cable network and we are currently looking for outgoing and dynamic super moms who can show us how fun, busy, exciting and hectic it is to be an elementary school mom.

We are looking for moms with great personalities that play an active role in their child's education and school activities. We have been talking with the National PTA and they seem very excited about this opportunity.

Please feel free to contact me anytime and feel free to pass my info along to those you see fit. I have attached a one sheet for you to review and pass along. If you wouldn't mind posting it on your site it would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you!
