Mixin' it up

I blog lifted this tag from one of our new friends, Unknown Mami. I know - Shame on me. See, usually I participate in Wordful Wednesdays over at Angie's Seven Clown Circus but I need to transfer some pictures from my camera to my computer and I am being LAZY. So I was trying to think of something to post and I came across Mami's post and thought 'how cute and fun.'

But..........I am going to change it up a bit. I am going to change the questions to be about me (Amy) and have Lady Di answer them. This should be interesting..............................................

1. Who does Amy think is the hottest movie star?

Oh GAWD!! Vin Diesel and just for the record, I totally disagree.

I asked for it didn't I? I had a feeling she would put him. Ok. Vin Diesel yes - It has something to do with the bald head. I like bald heads for some odd reason. Chris Daughtry even Howie Mandel. Strange I know. You would think the Hubs has a bald head but he doesn't - he is hot WITH hair.

2. Apart from her house and car, what is the most expensive thing Amy has ever bought?

PASS - I can't even answer that question about myself.

It would have to be my MP and YP - we just paid them off. They are finally ours to keep. When we had the OP we had awesome insurance. Thank heavens. The MP was the most expensive which is interesting since she practically walked out on her own. Those princesses are worth every penny!

3. What is Amy's most treasured memory?

The day she met me OF COURSE !!! Seriously....I would take a wild guess and say her wedding day and birth of her children (even though she had some crazy hard deliveries).
Lady Di must be confused that is her most treasured memory. J/K . No she is right - nothing really tops the births of my kiddos.

4. What is the best gift Amy ever received as a child?

A rock and a stick. She lived a simple life.

Really? It was simple but really, Lady Di, a rock and a stick? We did live simply. Although I was trying to think - maybe my horse ooh ooh I could get really sappy and say it was the gift of LOVE, a roof over my head, and always a new pair of shoes. No actually it was my parents raising me on a farm and putting me in 4-H. Where I met Lady Di (the greatest gift of all is FRIENDSHIP) {cue Aaaaaaahhhhhhhs} and where I learned responsibility, was able to pay for my awesome car and some of my college. Yep sounds good.

5. What is the biggest mistake Amy ever made?

Well, you know that guy that calls you at 3 a.m. to check that you're home, then interrogates you about where you have been and who you were with, or that guy that thinks you are cheating on him every time you step foot out of your house even when it is for doing things like going to the post office? Yeah, I knew that guy because he dated Amy the first year we lived together in college and I wanted to kick his teeth out every time the phone rang at the butt crack of dawn. However, she definitely learned from her mistake and ended up with a wonderful man. I never did get to kick that a-hole in the teeth though.

I knew it! Ooh I plead temporary insanity! WHAT A MISTAKE! but I learned something about myself during that time. Yes indeed. Well Lady Di if we ever see that jerk again we can kick him in the teeth together.

6. Give four words to describe Amy?

Caring, funny, strong, imaginative AND a bonus...germ-o-phobic She seriously thinks it the end of days and we are all going to get Swine Flu (hence the word imaginative).

Oh so sweet and spot on. Sometimes your imagination gets away with you - hey I am a Pisces, it just comes naturally. Hey, I know everyone is breaking out the Purell these days!

7. What was Amy's highlight and/or low light in 2008?

Oh, my girl Aim had some LOWS this year. I don't know if I even want to mention one of them, or any of them for that matter. Her grandfather passed away. This was in addition to her other grandfather's passing in the Fall of '07. Then she was expecting a new addition to her family, but the man upstairs had different plans and she had a miscarriage. Like I said, some real LOWS (hence the word strong). It was a tough year but she hammered through it and successfully accomplished her first year of homeschooling with the OP. She got the MP to dance lessons with little or no screaming fits eventually. AND, she got the YP's food allergy thing figured out...well almost. Did you know that Oreos are dairy and egg free? That's why I eat them.

Good job. Sorry Lady Di about this one but I love you best good bud! Bought the double stuffed ones the other day - the YP is in love. Yuck for me - I hate the frosting, love the cookie.

8. What is Amy's favorite film?

Austin Powers YEAH BAY-BEE!!! Actually, that would be her LEAST favorite movie. She, detests those kinds of movies. I know, where is her sense of humor? I still don't think she has watched Knocked Up yet even though one of her favorite actresses Katherine Heigel is in it. She is more of a romantic comedy gal. I am going to go with an oldie but goodie and say Hope Floats. She is a big Sandra Bullock fan and we watched this movie a lot in college.

NO my LEAST favorite film is MR. BEAN! O dear lord. Lady Di loves MR. BEAN. I know -no sense of humor all though I saw the previews for Hangover and it made me laugh pretty hard. So see I am not uptight.

9. Tell something not generally known about little Miss Amy.

Well, I already told everyone that she snorts when she laughs. In case you missed that post- She snorts when she laughs, as I called them, big gigantic donkey ee-haw, ee-haw snorts. I suppose I can elaborate on that and say that sometimes when it's REALLY funny she starts to drool a little too. Then of course, if it is THAT funny, I am usually drooling a little too.

Oh my! Thanks for that.

10. If she were a comic strip/ cartoon character, who would she be?

Infomercial Gadget Girl and boy does she have an arsenal of weapons. I think she has purchased every gizmo ever sold by some freaky dude on T.V.

I can honestly say that I have never bought a gadget on a T.V. informercial. I think. I am a catalog person. Thank you very much!

This is cool. I loved your comic strip answer.

blueviolet said...

You two might as well be sisters. There clearly are no secrets between you. I loved this!

Not so much with the Vin Diesel but I'll give you the Daughtry one. For me, it's his voice though. Give me a gritty voice and I swoon.

A rock and a stick....LMAO

Erin said...

You can do a lot with a rock and a could do some damage to that guy you want to kick in the teeth!

And I think Vin Diesel is a hottie too...don't know what it is!

Amy said...

Lisa Anne said...

This was a great idea. I totally love this idea. I HATE VIN DIESEL too!! You know he is reall super short in person. I've never seen him buit to I've heard.

Lady Di said...
