The Big 5-0

Little Miss Grayse Dawn
This here post contains 50 Things you never knew you never wanted to know about me...

1- What color is your toothbrush?

Red and white-- because RED is my favorite color.

2- Name one person who made you smile today:
Grayse Dawn

3- What were you doing at 8 am this morning:
Wandering Wal-Mart to find a birthday gift for the little girl in answer #2.

4- What were you doing 45 minutes ago?
Shooshing kids so I could better hear General Conference. *shhhhhhhh!!!*

5- What is your favorite candy bar?
Twix, when I can ingest chocolate without upsetting my nursing baby. If I can't have choc., I go for a Payday.

6- Have you ever done karaoke?
YES! Anytime, anywhere, you name it! (Okay, with the exception of bars. I don't do the "nightclub scene"!)

7- What is the last thing you said aloud?
"Morganne, would you like to bake Grayse's birthday cake now?" (Teenage girls are VERY handy to have around.)

8- What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
Ben and Jerry's Chunky Monkey *sob* (See #5)

9- What was the last thing you had to drink?
Water-- gotta keep up the ole' milk supply! *moo*

10- Do you like your wallet?
Meh. It's attached to my purse. You know, I feel a deep-seated NEED to buy a cute wallet to just shove into the big-honking diaper bag I have to tote around. And ditch the purse.

11- What was the last thing you ate?
Homemade waffles with peach syrup. (Ten year old daughters who make yummy waffles are also very handy to have around.)

12- Have you bought any new clothing items this week?
Haven't you heard? I'm a mother, and a mother only gets new clothes when the ones she's worn for 10 years get holes in them. Or else when she's pregnant and needs new maternity clothes. It hasn't been ten years for me yet, and I'm not pregnant. Ergo...

13- The last sporting event you watched?
ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!!! (I am the anti-sport.)

14- What is your favorite flavor of popcorn?
Naughty-naughty movie popcorn. (yum)

15- Who is the last person you sent a text message too?
Uhhh... that would have been two years ago... when I didn't know there was an extra charge for texting. Since then, I have been text free. Yes, I am CHEAP.

16- Ever go camping?
Once every couple of years. (I am choosing NOT to elaborate. Boring question.)

17- Do you take vitamins daily?
Uhhh... I'm 'posed to (being a nursing mother, and all)... and sometimes I even do it! :)

18- Do you go to church every Sunday?

19- Do you have a tan?
I like Sachiko's answer. ("A Tan What?") *hee*

20-Do you prefer Chinese food over pizza?
I prefer whichever one I don't have to cook. *grin*

21- Do you drink your soda with a straw?
If I drank soda, I would use a straw, yes.

22- What did your last text message say?
How would I know? It was TWO YEARS AGO!!!

23- What are you doing tomorrow?
Watching conference, going visiting teaching, and RESTING. It's a day of rest, you know. Relatively speaking.

25- Look to your left, what do you see
Hmmm... Where to start? A baby in a bouncy seat, my diaper bag, the toddler's half-drunk bottle, the broom (what the--?), a wooden long-sword, two bookcases, a pile of Lincoln logs-- should I go on?

26- What color is your watch?
Silver. I only wear silver. I'm uptight like that.

27- What do you think of when you hear Australia?
Crocodile Dundee and Steve Irwin, mate.

28- Question #28 has LEFT THE BUILDING!!!

SEVEN! Woot! (Go Seven!)

37- Do you have a maid service clean your house?
Oh, yeah! They're AWESOME! Their names are Morganne, Brennan, Lliam, Bonny, Gavin, Dierdre, Ronan, and MacKenna. (I don't include the other two kids, cuz they're under-age.)

38- Favorite pair of shoes you wear all the time?
Hobbit-shoes. (Bare feet.) If I MUST wear shoes, I love ballet flats.

39- Are you jealous of anyone?
Yes. (Am I required to elaborate?)

40- Is anyone jealous of you?
EVERYBODY! They all wish they had ten kids, too, I know it. ;-)

41- Do you love anyone?

42- Do any of your friends have children?
Yes. (Okay, questions answerable by a simple "yes" or "no" are not interesting. I'm just sayin'...)

43- What do you usually do during the day?
E-mail lots of people, either for my Shakespeare class, for costume stuff, or to my homeschool group. I also order children to do jobs, load and reboot the laundry, read aloud to kids, answer kid questions, nurse the baby, keep the toddler out of trouble, or holler at the big kids to keep the toddler out of trouble, sometimes cook, sometimes shower, fold laundry (on occasion), mess around on Facebook, call my mom, design costumes, read good books, study scriptures, take my daughter to seminary, go grocery shopping, kiss my husband, change a multitude of diapers, kiss owies, write on my blog, stalk other ladies' blogs... Do I have to continue? I'm now thinking it's my bedtime.

I don't hate people, only evil.

45- Do you use the word 'hello' daily?

I have a BIG, 12-seater, burgundy van named "Ruby-Mae."

In what context?

Yes. My parents. How was their trip to Utah?

49- Have you ever been to Six Flags?
No, because I am a deprived human being.

50- How did you get your worst scar?
I was seven years old, and was learning to ride a bike. Stitches upon stitches created a lovely big scar on my knee.
