And You Are . . . ? Blog Hop

While I'm trying to figure out the winner of my Wildest Moments Blogfest and while I'm waiting for GoDaddy to officially move my domain name to this blogger site, I thought I'd play a little game.
Once eggnog hit the shelves, Mrs. Claus thought it’d be funny to “juice up” Santa’s drink. Now the jolly elf is passed-out after one cup, and Mrs. Claus can’t keep up with the pre-Christmas demands.
So, to find those most deserving of Santa’s toys, Mrs. Clause asked Emily and Tammy for help. And so was born the “And You Are . . .?” Blog Hop!
My interview:
1. How many speeding tickets have you gotten?
One. I was 16 and on my way to my brother's house in Mansfield, Texas. I was wearing a Santa hat, and pretty packages were stacked precariously in the passenger seat. I sang at the top of my lungs--something I still do--and had a huge smile on my face . . . until the lights behind me started blinking. I thought for sure the cop was going to pull the guy over who'd just blown by me like I was sitting still, but no. He pulled ME over. I cried. Like a baby. I was driving 77 in a 70, and it was Christmas Eve, and the guy knew half my friends and family--and I still got a ticket. Jerk.
2. Can you pitch a tent?
Of course. This is how it goes: "TJ, honey, can you put up this tent? Use Kid #1 if you have to. I'll be reading a book. Thanks. I love you."
3. What was your worst vacation ever?
I hear Jeopardy music . . . I can't seem to think of the worst vacation. In fact, I have pretty awesome vacations. Not sure I have anything for this. :-)
4. What was the last thing you bought over $100?
Thing? Like one singular item? Cause I spent over $100 on groceries yesterday. Hmm. I'm going to have to say a pair of Keen boots. They are freaking amazing, and they were really expensive, and I will wear them forever.
5. We’re handing you the keys to what?
1972 Super Beetle, fully restored, dark blue or deep purple. I can never decide.
6. What was the last meal you cooked that made even you sick?
Funny enough, it wasn't something that I'd cooked but that I'd reheated from my brother cooking the night before. It was tacos or something, back in 2001. I wound up in the hospital.
7. Fill in the blank: Oh my gosh! Becky, look at her butt! It is so big. She looks like  ____?
This is kind of out of my league. I don't think I talk about people this way. (Insert Halo)
8. What was your first car?
Well, the first car I drove regularly was a 1982 Audi 5000 Turbo-Diesel. My dad bought it off a man who'd let the car sit in a field for 10 years. The floor was rusted out. The leather seats were split, but dammit, it had a sun roof!
9. Your best friend falls and gets hurt. Do you ask if he/she’s okay or laugh first?
Laugh while helping the idiot up. :-)
10. What’s the worst song ever?
I can't think of any songs I loathe . . . though I'm sure they exist.
Curious to see the answers of other participants? Check out the full list of participants.


  1. That cop was a jerk. What a Grinch.

    And what was in those tacos? I wanna know so I never make the same mistake. :)

    Thanks for participating!

  2. He was SUCH a jerk, Emily. You have no idea. I cried the rest of the way to my brother's house. And I have NO idea what was in the tacos. That was sooo long ago.

  3. Wow, you ran into the meanest cop ever! What a jerk.

    Visiting from the hop :)

  4. For the record, I am NOT an idiot, I just fall a lot...


  5. I can't believe he gave you a ticket on Christmas Eve for doing seven miles over!! What a jerk! I once had a cop pull me over for my registration being expired by TWO lousy day. He YELLED at me, made me get out of my car, and told me that he'd have absolutely arrested me and towed my car if I wasn't "lucky enough" to have my kids in the car with me. The guy seriously acted like I was running drugs or something. haha. THAT is why I try to stay our of Jersey. Jersey cops are the WORST!

  6. Thanks for letting us know you. I'm glad you don't talk about people.

  7. wowzers...not even letting you go on christmas when you KNEW him. Jerk! should feed him some bad tacos!!

  8. Aw, that was mean of the cop! You must have caught him on a bad day or something. Yeesh. Or was he a rookie?

    Only one speeding ticket with all the driving you do? You're such a good girl. ;)

    You and I pitch a tent the same way:-) I blogged about this blogfest, then forget to do it, lol. Still rereading my manuscript--calgon take me away!

  13. LOL! What is it with Christmas time and first tickets!!! Geez! When you said Audi, I was like, WOW. I guess it is hard for me to imagine an audi with a rusted floor board ... but then again, who needs a floorboard when you have leather seats AND A sunroof! teehee! I learned some very important fact in this entry. Don't ever eat your brother's leftovers, tent camping with Krystal means you are putting up the tent, halo's and cops are mean to younger people. Thanks for sharing.. I did the hop too!

  14. What a jerk of a cop! All the conditions were there for him to be nice and let you off with a warning, but no. WOW! I've gotten sick from tacos too....uggh
