I Got Tagged

By Shanna over at Just So. So now you guys get to find out even more random stuff about me. I know---you're super excited.

But first, my late roommate, Emily, pretty much told me she doesn't like my blog anymore cuz there are no pictures of me. So here's one of me. Or maybe the side of my head while I shake Mitt Romney's hand!
And this is not an invitation for a political discussion. You have your candidate, I have mine and I don't want to argue about/discuss it on my blog. K thanks.

And fine, here's a picture with my face(and my mom's, my aunt's and my cousins') when we got to see the Stars on Ice 10 Year SLC Olympic Anniversary Performance.


Anyway.
-Soda or Pop? Um, well I call it pop. Cuz that's what it is. But I don't drink either. I don't like the burny feeling in my throat.
-What would you consider your best trait? Definitely my humility. Okay, maybe not. Um, I really love my family. Maybe that doesn't seem like a trait...but I like that part of myself.
-What advice would you give to yourself at 13? To relax. And to be nice to everyone. The people that you say mean or snotty things to will always appear again in your life. You don't wanna be embarrassed about your earlier actions.
-Romance, Action or Mystery/Thriller? Yes please. Except for take the thriller out of the mystery. Romance combined with action combined with mystery. That's good stuff.
-Would you rather vacation on the West coast or the East? Well, I'd rather travel and sight see around the east coast, but I'd rather vacation in the west. Vacation means family and rest. Travel means seeing and learning.
-Who is your favorite literary character? Can I say Ammon, from the Book of Mormon? cuz him. And for sure Atticus from "To Kill A Mockingbird." Ooh, or Haymitch. Love him.
-What makes you laugh? This video:

-What would you buy if someone handed you $100 and told you to go and spend it on yourself? I'd do something really exciting and pay bills with it. I know. I'm awesome.
-What song speaks to you most at this moment? Well, I wouldn't say it exactly speaks to me...but I listen to it a lot cuz I'm trying to learn it and banjo is hard!

-Do you have a favorite poem or quote? If life hands you lemons, give them back and ask for chocolate. Not just cuz it's kinda sassy, but also cuz it really is a good point. If you don't like what you're given, work for something better.
-When was the last time you cried? Oh gosh-last night reading a really cheesey book. Like I said before, I'm awesome.

Now, I get to tag 11 other lucky people!
Becky at A Little Peek Inside
Cherie at Bakow Babble
Sara at Domestically Challenged
Wendy at No Botox Allowed
Sara at Waldron Family
Rachel Sue at Trapped Between a Scream and a Hug
Lisa at Away From It All
Emily at Jepsen Family
Boy Mom at Boys R US
Cynthia at Creative Chaos
Shelle at Blok Thoughts...too see if I can get her to blog again.

If you are tagged and don't want to do it, I won't be offended. But if you choose to participate, here are your awesome questions to answer.
1. Where is your dream vacation?
2. What is your favorite movie that has Hugh Jackman in it?
3. What book could you read over and over and never be sick of it?
4. What's the last movie you saw in the theater?
5. Why did you start blogging?
6. What store would be your favorite for a shopping spree?
7. If you were 'Queen for a Day' what rules would you impose?
8. Heels or flats?
9. Do you have a traditional Sunday dinner?
10. What's your favorite song right now?
11. What's your dream job?

It is definitely soda. I might pop you in the face.

Emily said...

You definitely need to come traveling to the east because I miss you and your sassy/humble/cheesy/bango-playing self.

elesa said...

You play the banjo? That is very, very cool.

sara said...

Are you wearing the same scarf to "stars on ice" that you wore to see Mitt Romney? Or was he one of the stars on ice?

Lara said...

I'm not sure why I insist on saying soda when I grew up around pop. Weird.

I do like your diplomatic answers, but I especially liked that you are learning the banjo. That is awesome.

I'm so glad you posted pictures so we could stay friends (and I never said I didn't like your blog, but whatever). Sister wives listen to each other.

Melanie Jacobson said...

I have to yell at myself to relax. A lot.

Chrissy said...

Okay, can't wait to hear you play the banjo in a few weeks! Do you know who has Grandpa's banjo? And neat picture of you and Mitt Romney...

Garden of Egan said...

Hilarious answers!!!
Made me giggle.

Cynthia said...

I won't talk politics (even though we share a candidate) but I will say some of your answers were very political- nice evasion! I will try and get the tag later this week. Tomorrow is 'Crazy Tuesday' which means a no time for anything!

in time out said...

keeping you on the blogroll. thanks for sharing.

---in time out

Smart Helm said...

I'm a little confused... how could your late roommate ask for pictures? I guess labeling a roommate as late could mean alot of things.
And that's definitely what I'd do with 100 bucks. It truly is awesome.

wendy said...

those were GREAT things to learn about you. Good to find out some inside stuff. Nothing here really "black mail worthy" though. ha ha

Thanks for thinking of me in the Tag....I haven't done a Tag since the last 3 times Tauna tagged me (tee,hee..inside story)
They are not my favorite, and that's why she kept doing it to me that adorable stinker.
So...I'll give this some thought ok.

Chris and Sara Waldron said...

Cool pictures! I totally agree with you about the traveling to the East, vacationing on the West.
Also, were you reading "Belle of Nauvoo" again? :) I'd be interested in hearing what you did read- I need ideas of good books to read. :)

Becky Dayton said...

Love the picture with Mitt!

Thanks for tagging me. I'm running out of blog ideas, so that's perfect! Yay for vacationing in the west. I love Ammon and Atticus. Don't love Haymitch.

Camille said...

Love the drunk frog! Since I don't have my blog anymore I'll share you my favorite, with my newest crush...Jean Dujardin...mmmm...I didn't think anyone could compete with Mr Jackman..only a French man..oui oui!! http://www.funnyordie.com/videos/6cddad07b7/jean-dujardin-s-villain-auditions

Kazzy said...

I stopped drinking soda about 18 months ago mostly for the health reasons, but you are right... that burning in the throat thing. Yuck!

Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

oh! a tag! Yippee! Now I don't have to come up with something to blog about. Soda all the way. Minnesotans always say POP, but I have made the switch, or at least 12% of it.

The Kooky Queen--Rachel said...

Wow, did you never wash your hand after shaking the Rominator's hand? OOooo! :) Loved the video, haha and I would pay bills too. :P

Connie said...

How about soda pop? That's what I called it as a kid but that was 100 years ago.
Great answers. It was fun to get to know you better.
