Who the Hell Do You Think You Are and Junk?

I am in a passive aggressive argument with this blog. I was feeling a weird responsibility to it, which made me annoyed with it, which made me have writers block, which made me ignore it more, which has made me irritated with Facebook, which drove me to Twitter, which made me read a lot of political articles, which brought me back to Facebook. 

The point is, I am still not interested in blogging. My blogger is broken and it can't get up. 

My pal at DeBie Hive heard me say it, so she is trying to get me off of my dead ass and blog it up by tagging me with an assignment to write more about myself. Which I need to do less off in lieu of writing other more interesting stuffs. 

But I like DeBie, so........

1.  Where were you born.  I am the second born of a set of twins born in Buffalo, WY. I was 6 weeks premature and breech, which means at 4 lbs, I practically jumped out. My mother says I always land on my feet to this day. A sentiment I have always liked.
2.  Were you named after someone?  I need a lot of therapy over this topic. My brother was named for Jason in Seven Brides for Seven Brothers (Named after a musical, fitting) and TWIN was named after a darling girl named Stephanie who lived down the lane from my parents in Germany when my father was in the Army. When she was called to in the lane by her mother, she would answer "Yaaaaa, mamaaaaaa.... my mother dreamed of her daughter when she heard it.

My name? Oh, well....IT MATCHED STEPHANIE. I am the throw pillows to my sister's couch of a name. Yep. 
3. How many children do you have?  I have two, and they are cool cats. They are funny and sarcastic. And they both have stories for their names.

4. How many pets do you have?  Too many! We have a chubby Corgi who eats anything you leave in reach, including purses, girl scout cookies and to-go boxes, etc. Our Corgi is the owner of a Chihuahua who won't eat a damn thing and who is constantly 'aroused". I had to stop walking him to school because he was afraid of the kids and when approached would immediately roll onto his back so I could answer 13 questions from kindergartners about his 'situation" on display. Sigh. We also have 2 pound cats, one who owns me. Our latest pet is a bearded dragon who spends a lot of the day hanging on the side of the cage. I would like all of our pets better if they did not defecate.

5. Your worst injury.  I abhor exercise, so I do my best not to do any of it. My worst injury was probably childbirth. Yeowch. Totally worth it though. 
6.  Do you have a special talent?  I can find anyone or anything on Google. I will stalk anyone, research anything. The answers are all there and I clearly need to 
7.  Favorite thing to bake.  I prefer to cook instead of bake. I can do good things with my Le Creuset enameled dutch oven, which I have renamed The Magic Pot. 
8. Favorite Fast Food.  Probably a Taco Bravo from Taco Johns, which is a soft shell inside a hard shell. 
9.   Would you bungee jump? Not me. I don't mind heights, but I get nothing out of the stomach lurch from jumping off said height or racing back down at lighting speed. I will stroll down, thankyouverymuch. I always wonder what the pulling up short does to a person's back? 
10.  What is the first thing you notice about people?  Wit. If they're quick on the draw. Lots of smart people, lots of nice people. Not always a lot of witty people. But when I find them, I know it almost immediately. 
11.  When was the last time you cried?  Hmm. I am not a crier. Even alone. I might be a robot. Special Agent says I am Spock. But I was so frustrated when I listened to the the Wyoming legislature fail to pass the gay marriage bill in Wyoming this session that i cried. Sometimes i think I feel the world changing, getting better, y'know? I thought this was one of those times and I was going to hear it, FEEL it change right in front of me. When it didn't, I was crushed. Special Agent was freaked out at my unusual outburst and bought me a drink and hugged my shoulders. 
12.  Any current worries.  I hate wasting time on worrying, I prefer action. I have a few things that are bugging me and I am working them out so they will go the hell away.
13.  Name 3 drinks you drink regularly.  Tea, Diet Pepsi, Crystal Light adult kool aid. 
14.  What’s your favorite book?  The Cliff Walk. I wanted to strangle and hug the author while I watched him slowly catch on.  
15.  Would you like to be a pirate?  No way, they smell. 
16.  Favorite Smells?  Baby heads, fresh cut grass, wood fire, puppy breath, winter air, charcoal.  
17.  Why do you blog?  I originally did it because my life needed a creative outlet. Now my blog and I are on a break. I think i need to put effort into writing something I want to accomplish instead of dicking around. 
18. What song do you want played at your funeral?  I'd Have to Be Crazy, by Willie Nelson.

19.  What is your least favorite thing about yourself.  I'm a know it all.  And bossy. 
20.  Favorite hobby.  Reading, Google, kids. Shit. I need a hobby.
21.  Name something you’ve done, you never thought you would do?  Wouldn't you like to know?
22.  What do you look for in a friend. I don't look for a friend, we just gravitate toward each other and then bam, we're friends. Like DeBie, who I have never met. See #10
23.  Favorite Fun things to do?  Sit in a coffee shop with a friend and laugh my ass off. 
24.  Pet peeves. Lots: Bad manners. Word mispronunciation, like liberry instead of library. inefficiency. 
25.  Whats the last thing that made you laugh?  A video I have seen before with gay men telling heterosexual men that they should support gay marriage so the gay guys don't marry their girlfriends. It's funny no matter how many times you see it. 
Now, I am supposed to tag other bloggers. But I'm being a rebel. If the mood strikes you, consider yourself tagged.

"My blogger is broken and it can't get up. "

The usual solution to that problem is fantasizing about other blogs.
