I Got Tagged, Yo. And I made a bunch of links.

as tagged by Trueborn, who wrote about Bloody Memes. Ew.

Two Parts of Your Heritage
1. Native American
2.German? Greek? No idea- my family stops with my Grandparents... they don't know where they came from, other than they both "got some Indian" in 'em. *sigh*

Two Things That Scare You
2. Losing my mother

Two fears you overcame
1. Living alone
2. Cuticle scissors- I used to think they were frightening medieval torture devices. Now, however, I recognize them as the useful and necessary mani/pedi tools they MOST CERTAINLY ARE.

Two of Your Everyday Essentials
1. Clear lipgloss
2. My cell phone- though it is of the generic, non-camera-phone-having nature, it has a DATEBOOK. One that is programmed to BEEP AT ME and remind me of EVERY SINGLE THING that occurs in my day. A sample:
Alarm: 9am
Have you left for work yet?: 10:45am
Take Birth Control Pill You Hussy: 11:20am
Take pill {for acid reflux, my oh my I'm so old}with food: 3:00pm
Take pill again with food: 7:00pm
You have a Doctor's appointment in the morning, SHAVE LEGS: 9:00pm

Two things you are Wearing Right Now
1. Kenneth Cole Reaction shoes, turquoise, kitten heel, size 9.5
2. A pony tail holder on my wrist. (You never know when there will be a pony tail holder emergency.)

Two things you wore too much this year
1. My hot pink, pointy-toed flat shoes. THEY HAVE SEEN BETTER DAYS.
2. My favorite pair of brown pants- which finally gave up the ghost 2 months ago.

This year's Favorite Bands or Musical Artists
1. The Bravery, tracks 1, 6, 7, 8, and 9
2. Theory of a Deadman (not really. I only liked one of their songs and then bought their CD, which sucked, and I became pissed off. Because I only buy, like, one CD every three months and my music-buying was a BUST.)

Two Things You Want in a Relationship
1. Ok. I want him to be smart. Sorry. I don't want to have to read his emails and SPELL CHECK THEM.
2. While I'm being superficial, I'm going to go ahead and get this one out there: I want great sex. Not just great sex, UNBELIEVABLY passionate and fabulous and great and head-banging sex. Break the bedside table sex. Tear down the shower curtain sex. Fog up the car windows sex. Leave the party early sex.

Two of your favorite Movies of the Year
1. Wedding Crashers. Sorry. It was funny.
2. Ugh. I can never think of movies. I rented "Easy" with Margeurite Moreau- which is an indie film from a few years ago. And I watched it three times before returning it.

Best movies of all time
1. Home for the Holidays (Holly Hunter and Dylan McDermott- this is fabulous EVEN WHEN THERE ARE NO HOLIDAYS AROUND.
2. Breakfast at Tiffany's

Two things You hate
1. Manipulators
2. Lip spittle

Two of Your Favorite Hobbies
1. Reading. I'm a dork. I've accepted this.
2. Writing. Further continuation of the dork theory.

Two things you learned this year
1. Maybe what I see in the mirror is not what others see when they look at me
2. Savings accounts are useful tools for survival

Two Accomplishments You are Proud of
1. This blog. And not being anonymous. Making myself write everyday, even if I don't want to, even if it sucks, even if [insert other excuse here].
2. Starting a savings account by having my employer draft money out of my paycheck every two weeks. It's amazing what I don't miss.

Two Things You Want Really Badly
1. To pay off my credit card bills
2. For the first time in, I truly think, well, EVER, I want a boy. A boy who wants me just as much as I want him. And I no longer hold stock in the theory that when you stop looking for it, it finds you. BULLSHIT. Because TRUST ME I was not only NOT LOOKING FOR IT, I was actively PUSHING IT FAR FAR AWAY for many a year.

Two places you went this year.
1. Um, well, I was poor this year. I didn't really go anywhere. But I thought a lot about *Maine.
2. And more Maine.

Two Places You Want to go on Vacation
1. Maine
2. Greece

Two Things You Want to Do Before You Die
1. Just like everyone else- write The Great American Novel
2. Braid my child's hair

Two Ways that you are a Stereotypical Example of your Gender
1. I ask my friends "Do I look fat in this?"
2. *sigh* I like shiny objects. BUT. I'm not a fan of the currently en vogue shiny objects. I like old-fashioned shiny objects. Ones that your grandmother wore. This includes rings, brooches, bracelets and necklaces. But mostly rings and bracelets.

Two things that make you stand out.
1. My hair. It's currently quite long and, if I say so myself, a little punkish looking. Some days it's insane and wavy. Others, I smooth it out. But, after all those years of hating, I think I may like it now.
2. My boobs enter a room before I do.

Two Things You Normally Wouldn't Admit
1. I think I want kids. Maybe even more than one.
2. Jon is the only one. Twice. (HOW EMBARRASSING! I may delete that.)

Two Goals for the New Year
1. Meeting my year-long weight loss goal (which gets me back in shape). So far, three pounds.
2. Back to school I go...


ANYONE WHO WANTS TO. :) But please, let me know that you were faux tagged so I can read it.

that is all.

Hi birdie. You seem very witty and fun and I like your blog! Very cute.

trueborn said...

See? You are a hottie. Meg told me so.
Besides your picture is cute.
Who might Jon be?
Good or Bad?

Barry S. said...

Good list, robin. I see from your link that you are going back to school is the radiological sciences....what is your major?

I am an x-ray/MRI Technologist going back to school to get a degree in Radiation Science.

Best of luck in achieving all your goals, especially overcoming that lip spittle thing.

You do realize you're in trouble.
You totally bailed on the "gonna blog about this" thing.

But that's okay, because I won't be blamed for once.

When did the brown pants bite the dust????? I love those pants!

PS - It's QUITE evident that you have Greek in your heritage, even if we do call you Coco Lopez.

Jenni said...

Loved reading about you, birdie.
I am doing the list on my site.
Stop by for a read.

Carl from L.A. said...

1. Maine is overrated. I'd pick Vermont.

2. You'll be glad that you started a savings account. I started 10 years later than you and now I wish I would have started sooner.

3. Since I'm too lazy to think of blogging topics, maybe I will be a tagee- if you don't mind. But give me until tomorrow before checkinghere. Work is hell today.

Annathy said...

Adam said...

I've decided, young lady, that I require your posts to be sent directory to my brain so I might enjoy them the very second they are available if not before.

I think .125 is a fair share of the readership. I would consider it an honor to have you along for the trip.
