Quizical

I had a busy day.  Kidding.

I took Skylar to the beach while Scott fiddled around on his computer attempted to work. 

We had a nice tine walking on the beach and building sandcastles and walking on the pier.

And since I’m on vacation and would prefer not to type too much today, it’s time for a quiz.

Chelsey posted this quiz, and then Gabriela did, and it’s my turn today to have a little quizzical fun.

1. What is your mom’s best friend’s name? She has two best friends, both named Kathy.

2. Where is the weirdest place you have a mole? Inner thigh, up high.

3. Who was the hottest teacher you ever had? A priest at the Catholic university I went to, who I’m sure was probably gay.  Either way, he was totally off limits.

4. Have you ever made out in a movie theater? Hasn’t everyone?

5. What body part do you wash first? armpits!

6. Do you hover over the toilet in public bathrooms? No, I’m tall and don’t enjoy the quad workout.  I’ll just sit and get germs on me.  Thus far, I’ve lived.

7. What is the strangest talent you have? I’m psychic.

8. Do you have an innie or outie? Innie.

9. Do you parallel park or drive around the block? In urban San Diego, one better get familiar with parallel parking, in a hurry.

10. What shoe do you put on first? Left.

11. Have you ever been cow-tipping or snipe-hunting? No.

12. If you had to choose to never wash your bed sheets again or never wash your towel again, which would you rather not wash? Towel.  Bed sheets are disgusting to me after about a week, max. Just get the hospital corners tight, please.

13. What was your childhood nickname? I didn’t have any.

14. When was the last time you played air guitar? Never.

15. Have you ever bitten your toenails? Gross, no!

16. How do you eat your cookie? I break off the edges and eat those first and then am left with the soft center.  Mmm!

Peanut Butter Caramel Chocolate Chip cookies (vegan and GF) anyone?

17. When working out at the gym, do you wear a belt? Huh?

18. Name something you do when you’re alone that you wouldn’t do in front of others. Floss my teeth.  I don’t care to see anyone else’s salad pieces coming out from between their teeth, so I refrain from flossing until I’m alone as well.  I see people floss in their cars and trust me, I’m not one of them.

19. How often do you clean your ears? After every shower I gently wipe the insides of my ear with a Kleenex and then a Q-Tip.  Super gently and not deep. Just enough to remove the water.

20. Do you scrunch or fold your toilet paper? Scrunch.

21. Do you have any strange phobias? Birds!  And other animals, too!

Apparently there’s no #22.

23. Do you freak out when you feel a sneeze coming on when you’re driving? No.

Quiz is over!

From my last post with the Taste of the Tropics Smoothie, glad it looked good.


And yes, I was sweating balls buckets when I was taking photographs poolsideBut worth it because of this. Something about photography, I just love it and don’t mind going to some (sweaty) lengths!

Questions

1. How’s your week been?  Anything new, exciting, or any plans coming up?

I have a blogger meetup tomorrow in Aruba.  Yes!

And of course, just being here has been wonderful!  I even re-decorated.

Earlier in the week I had some really cool things happen like a magazine feature and a new gig, too.

And I was honored that my high Raw Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls fetched $125 in Tina’s Bake Sale!

Thank you to my new Canadian friend who bid on these and for your donation to Tina’s charity!

2. Time for your turn to take the Quiz.  Pick a few and rattle off your answers in the comments or re-post on your blog.

Especially #18!

Enjoy your evening!

P.S. I’m glad you’re all excited about the $50 Giveaway.  It ends Friday so get your entries in now.

    Haha, I don’t floss in front of others either. I wouldn’t mind my parents or brother (actually, I should floss in front of my brother and make him look at the dirty floss just to pay him back for all the times he dragged me into the bathroom to look at his poop), but anyone else…yeah, gross. I actually floss in the bathroom stalls at school sometimes. I’m neurotic about not having stuff in my molars!

    #16, I do the complete opposite! I eat the middle first and then savour the crispy edges. Those Peanut Butter Caramel cookies look ridiculously delish! AND those smoothies! I die… I got hooked on malibu rum and pineapple juice while vacationing in Hawaii, SO refreshing :)

    Thank you again for your contribution to the bake sale, you have an extremely generous heart. I love having the opportunity to give back, in whatever form that may be.

    There are plenty of things I wouldnt’ do in front of others — but for sure singing along to the radio is something I only do when I’m by myself. I get super self conscious if someone hears me!

    I’m glad you are having a wonderful time on your vacation — the pictures look beautiful!

    I’m going to BlogHer Food this weekend! I’m hanging with Alisa too so I’m super excited about that! #18…cut my nails. I think it’s gross when people do that outside of the privacy of their own bathroom. #21 Snakes! No thank you, I’m terrified!

    ow! the beach looks so peaceful! Fun quiz! A priest ?? hehe. What the heck is snipe-hunting? Some of these questions are a little nutty haha. A blogger meet up in Aruba? How cool is that?? Week is great! VERY busy. I had a baby doctor apt today (went well :)) and a breast feeding class tomorrow night!
    18. Name something you do when you’re alone that you wouldn’t do in front of others.
    Shave (legs or otherwise). I’m not sure why. I just never shave in front of Josh. Maybe I like to pretend I secretly am hairless (other than on my head haha)

    We must have crossed in cyberspace b/c your blog was up on my screen when I read yours on mine! I’m so glad that you have a meetup in Aruba. We will have a meetup- of that I’m sure.

    It’s so great that you have this time to recharge your batteries.

    I remember biting my toenails as a kid- I must have been flexible! And a bit disgusting! Not to mention germy?? And I’m mildly happy that you’ve been sitting for all these years and have had no problem. It makes me feel more safe on the few occasions that I just had to sit :-)

    Enjoy your time off!

    ahhh the beach looks amazing!!! wish i was there with ya!!
    love you answers esp the squatting in public restrooms and thus far yes you are still alive. :)
    it depends to me… if there’s leftover pee on the rim of the toilet, i cannot sit therefore i will squat. i will not even try to wipe it down. just gross. lol

    i clean my ears everyday…i hate my ears feeling wet after showering. strange phobias of mine include worms and rats! ((goosebumps))…

    Awesome how you styled the poolside smoothie….girl you had to crouch down looow to grab that shot! Ahhhh the sweat & dedication to the craft.
    Bed now BlogHer Food in the morning. Will miss you, but Aruba sounds way better :)

    3. I had the hottest science teacher in middle school. All the girls had a crush on him, but it wasn’t something I really thought about. He was “old”! Now that I say that I really wonder how old he was, because I think he was actually quite young for a teacher!

    6. I’ve never understood why women do this. I also *gasp* don’t use those paper toilet seat covers. I don’t understand what disease a thin piece of paper is going to save me from.

    18. It’s funny, I’m trying to think of something, but I can’t really think of much. I’m starting to think I’m too much of an open book, lol. My husband already rolls his eyes as I don’t shut the bathroom door ;)
