45 of the Most Random Things You Never Need To Know About Someone

Begging your forgiveness ahead of time.  Because I have bloggy-block, so you get this.  You're...uh...welcome.

1.  What is your name spelled backwards?  R-E-B-M-A  ....  almost like Reba.  Fancy.

2.  What did you do last night?  Watched American Idol; ate a bag of Cheetos all by myself; went to bed feeling highly nauseous due to said Cheetos.

3.  What was the last thing you downloaded onto your computer?  My good buddy, Marla's e-book.  Don't know what I'm talking about?  Go here.  You know what I'm talking about?  Cool, huh?

4.  Have you ever licked a 9 volt battery?  Uh. No.

5.  When was the last time you swam in a pool?  Last summer.  *Sniff*  Makes me misty-eyed for flip-flops and tan-lines.

6.  What are you wearing?  Pink froggie jammies and my "I Heart Edward" tee-shirt.   Oh yes.  I said Edward. 

7.  How many cars have you owned?  Me personally....3.  I had a gray '91 Oldsmobile back in da'day.  The same gray Olds that everyone else and their granny also had.  Then I upgraded to a '99 Chevy Malibu.  Loved that car.  And then it was on to the Red Bomb.  I think it's time for another upgrade....the husband, however, says not so much.  Grrr.

8.  What is the type of music you dislike most?  Gangsta Rap.  No thanky.

9.  Are you registered to vote?  Sho'nuff.

10.  Do you have cable?   Nope.  Satellite.

11.  What kind of computer do you use?  Miss Daisy June is a metallic bronze HP.  We likes the bling.

12.  Have you ever made a prank phone call?  Is your refrigerator running?

13.  Would you go bungee jumping or sky diving?  Neither.  Buying something full ticket price is extreme sport enough for me.

14.  What is the furthest place you ever traveled?  Lived in Bangladesh, which happens to be EXACTLY halfway around the world from Arkansas....so there ya go.

15.  What's your favorite comic strip?  I'm a BLONDIE girl.

16.  Do you know all of the words to the national anthem?  Sure do.  But never on-key.

17.  Do you shower in the morning or at night?  I'm a morning gal.

18.  What is your favorite pizza topping?  Yum...pizza.  The Bacon Ranch pizza from the local hole-in-the-wall is the best evuh.  It's a BLT on a pizza.  Serious tastebud nirvana.

19.  Chips or popcorn?  Chips.  Always chips.

20.  What cell phone provider do you use?  I'm an AT&T girl.  But I still call it Cingular.  Even after how many years?

21.  Have you ever smoked peanut shells?  What kind of meme is this?  Uh...no.

22.  Have you ever been in a beauty pageant?  Nope.  But I got an application for the Miss Teen America pageant when I was in high school.  I thought I was hot stuff, until I realized that it was a standard mail-out....even to ugly girls.  My tiara dreams were dashed. 

23.  Orange juice or apple juice?  Apple juice.  I'm not a fan of pulp.  And they can say "pulp-free" all they want...but it.is.still.there.

24.  Who were the last people you sat at lunch with?  My 3 boys.  Over a gourmet meal of fish sticks and Cheetos.

25.  Favorite chocolate bar?  I'll take an Almond Joy, puhleeze.

26.  Who is your oldest friend and how long have you known eachother?  My oldest closest friend is Rachel.  My college roommate.  We're going on 15 years now.  And we're the type of friends that can go months without talking and pick right back up where we left off.

27.  When was the last time you ate a homegrown tomato?  I actually just ate a tomato today...and I'm sure it was grown near someone's home.  BUT...if we're talking real homey juice-running-down-your-arm tomatoes....it was last summer.  One of Kirk's grandmother's.  More mouth nirvana.

28.  Have you ever won a trophy?  I won lots of trophies back in my high school days.  I was a drama geek, and I earned several shiny awards at Speech and Drama Tournaments.   I know what you're thinking....Amber?  Dramatic?  I know...shocking.

29.  Favorite arcade game?  Miss Pacman.

30.  Ever ordered from an infomercial?  NO.  I'm concerned that I'm not fully American.

31.  Sprite or 7-UP?  Blech.  Neither.  I need colorful beverages.

32.  Have you ever had to wear a uniform to school/work?  Unfortunately...yes.  Nothing is more unattractive than the black pants and black shoes of a fast food employee.  Gag.

33.  Last thing you bought at Walgreens?  Milk and a pair of tweezers.

34.  Ever thrown up in public?  No...but I did pass out in the frozen food aisle at Walmart.  That's sorta the same thing.

35.  Would you prefer being a millionaire or finding true love? Already found true love, so I'll take the cash, please.

36.  Do you believe in love at first sight?  I fell in love with Mr. Schue from gLee the first time I saw him....so, yes.

37.  Spongebob or Jimmy Neutron?  Does Jimmy Neutron even come on anymore?  Anywho...I'm a Spongebob fan.  We're some of THOSE parents.

38.  Did you have long hair as a young kid? After my mom regrettably cut my sister's hair in a Beatle-ish bowl cut, she vowed to never touch mine with the shears.  So I got to wear my dog ears and ponytails proudly.  Poor Mich.

39.  What message is on your voicemail machine?  The standard "This is Amber, leave a message." is on my phone.  But at home, it's the boys talking over each other and mumbling about leaving a message and their parents will call you back.

40.  Where would you like to go right now? To Sonic for a Pineapple Diet Dr. Pepper and fried pickles.

41.  What's the name of your pet?  Indiana Jones, our cat.....the only surviving member of the animal variety.

42.  What kind of back pack do you have, and what's in it?  No backpack.  Just a giraffe print purse which is stuffed with gum wrappers, a checkbook, and a Darth Vader action figure.

43.  What kind of tennis shoes do you have?  Metallic silver Nike Shox.   I want new ones though. 

44.  Who was the last person you talked to on the phone?  My mama.
45.  Mickey Mouse or Bugs Bunny?  Ooohh...tough call.  Love the feely-goodness of Mickey, but love the hilarity of Bugs. 
And now you can close this screen and regret not being able to get those 3 minutes of your life back.

Fun answers...you cracked me up about Mr. Schue.

Abbey spelled backwards is Yebba. She cracks herself up saying that. It's actually kinda catchy, don't ya think Rebma?

Mich said...

I think it was a "Dorothy Hamill" haircut, rather than Paul McCartney...but I don't think it really matters, for everyone thought I was a boy!
