We Want To Know Wednesday


  1. You have been asked to give a 10 minute speech to teenage girls. What is it about?
  2. Do you have a pet? Tell us about them. No pets? Why?
  3. What is the biggest inconvenience about the place you’re currently living?
  4. What do you think is the single best decision you have made in your life so far?
  5. What are the THREE "nevers" of your life? (things you would never do or have never done)
  1. Speech: Only 10 mins? That's going to be hard! I honestly don't think I would give a speech on all the things that you should and shouldn't do because we all know it'll just drive them to do it. Instead I would hold an open mic type of deal and let them ask me questions. They need to know the honest truth about sex, drugs, and rock & roll; so what other way can they get that information but from the horses mouth? I'm an open book! I am who I am because of the things I went through; no shame there!
  2. Pets: We have two cats, Tigger and Pooh; the Easter Bunny brought them 3 years ago. Yes, you read that right, the Easter Bunny. Didn't you know good ol' Mr. Hippity Hoppity likes cats? And cats like rabbits? Get with it people!
  3. Inconvenience where I live: Section 8 (low income/g'ment housing). Hold on! Before you tar and feather me let me explain. I'm all for helping people get back on their feet; I've been there, but handing over keys to a 3,000 sqft home (the typical size in my area or close to) is not realistically helping someone get back on their feet. It's giving them false hope. The kicker for the area I live in, is these homes are beautiful and they aren't being taken care of.
  4. Best decision: I wouldn't call it a decision, it was more like an OOPS 8 years ago when I got pregnant with my first ruggrat. The two additional ruggrats rank right up there with Mr. Oops.
  5. Three nevers: 1. I will NEVER allow my kids to have a pet spider. I thought when I was a teenage if I watched Arachnophobia for the 2nd time it would cure my phobia. Wrong! 2. I've never traveled outside of the US, but once the ruggrats are grown it's the first thing I plan on doing with the Ball and Chain. Ok, maybe the second. ;) 3. I'll never turn down a good margarita or an ice cold beer. Unless I'm preggers. Duh!
We Want to Know Wednesday Q&A is hosted by: Janette, Seriously Shawn, Impulsive Addict and Mamarazzi. Go and join the fun!


  1. I don't know what section 8 means but the houses are a good size. Too bad they're not being taken care of. Sads.

    3 oops's? LUCKY.

    Girl, you just spoke my language. I would never turn down a good marg or a beer either!

    BTW, we have a Taco Hell. Just not a Taco Bueno. There is a B I G difference! =)

    Thanks for linking up!

  2. Aww. Your #4 is pretty much the same as mine. :)

    And I'm TOTALLY with you and part 3 of #5!!

  3. I like your idea of open mic kinda reminds me of that lifetime movie but for the life of me i cant remember the name of it, it had that girl from spiderman in it.

  4. Oh margaritas...yummy! I'd never turn one of those down either lol!

  5. Haha! You and my son would get along famously. He LOVES to step on spiders!

  6. haha @ your oops!
    I've never traveled outside the US either...would love too! BUT I'm a bit OCD to anyway, I watched the show "monsters inside me" and I've never been the same!...thanks for stopping by my blog!

    yes 6 in a balls.

  7. I'd love to travel outside the US, too. Only did it once on a cruise ship, but I'd much prefer Europe over some islands in the Bahamas. Maybe one day, eh?

    Good idea about the open mic. :) I think kids need more honesty than a preachy sermon.

  8. Oh, section 8, don't get me started!

    Love the names of your cats!

  9. Never ever. Turn down a margarita! Good way to live!

  10. Section 8 is definitely frustrating when people abuse it. My Mother in Law works in property management and they battle with it all the time with their renters.

    I would love to travel with my hubby some day but I think we're more the type that just want to see what's here in the US first. We'll do the out of the country thing when we're all retired and have that golden income. It could happen! ;-)

  11. It is amazing the size of some of the section 8 housing near where I grew up too! I do not think they need to be small or anything- but hell- I cannot afford a 3000 sqft house!
    Your blog cracks me up! Definitely a new follower!

  12. Ahh! Spiders. That's what I forgot... I hate those things. I hate when the hubby isn't home to take care of it for me!
