Been There, Done That

Wednesday, June 22, 2005 | 0 Comments

I got this list from Matted Spam. Heather (the author of Matted Spam) got it from another blog, and now I think it is making it's rounds. Well, it made it here anyway. I thought the questions were interesting, and I have actually done a lot of them, so here are my answers. How brave are you to show yours? (If you post your own list, please comment here or email me to let me know to let me know. I wanna see :).

(x) snuck out of the house - Who hasn't? Well, besides Heather. (heheh!)
( ) gotten lost in your city
(x) seen a shooting star
(x) been to any other country besides Canada- USA, Costa Rica, Canada, Iceland, Scotland, Ireland, Wales and England (in that order).
(x) had a serious surgery
(x) gone out in public in your pajamas- I've even gone to work in my pajamas. But most of my pajamas are t-shirts and yoga pants.
(x) kissed a stranger
(x) hugged a stranger
(x) been in a fist fight - HELL YEAH! I'm a wicked, mean-ass fighter!
( ) been arrested- not technically. I was interrogated a couple of times.
(x) laughed and had milk/coke come out of your nose
( ) pushed all the buttons on an elevator- I think this is pointless unless you hate the person.
(x) swore at your parents
(x) been in love
(x) been close to love
(x) been to a casino
( ) been skydiving- this really doesn't even interest me.
(x) skinny dipped - in the day time too!
(x) skipped school
(x) seen a therapist- hey, I've got issues!
(x) done the splits
( ) played spin the bottle
(x) gotten stitches
(x) drank a whole gallon of milk in one hour - does eating a whole 5 qt tub of Tin Roof ice cream in an hour count?
(x) bitten someone- HELL YEAH! I'm a wicked, mean-assed fighter!
(x) been to Niagara Falls
(x) gotten the chicken pox- Twice!
(x) kissed a member of the opposite sex
( ) kissed a member of the same sex
(x) crashed into a friend's car- He wasn't a really good friend, and technically, no one was even in my car at the time. My cars are like Christine- they do things on their own. That same car, a few years prior, had knocked over a telephone pole on it's own. And the last car I owned knocked over a parking lot light pole while I was in the building working.
( ) been to Japan- I want to though!
(x) ridden in a taxi
(x) been dumped- Thank Goodness! Saved me the trouble.
(x) shoplifted
(x) been fired- that man was crazy though! This is a long story. It will have to wait for it's own post.
(x) had a crush on someone of the same sex
(x) had feelings for someone who didn't have them back- This never lasts long with me though. One of the requisites of me having feelings for someone is reciprocation. And I just wanted to see what all the hype was about. I still don't get it. Who would do that to themselves?
(x) gone on a blind date
(x) lied to a friend- Seriously, I have a huge issue with lying to people. I'm no good at it and I think it is cowardly. I checked this because I do sometimes fib to save someone's feelings. And I have had to lie when trying to surprise someone. I never lie about important things.
( ) had a crush on a teacher
( ) celebrated Mardi-Gras in new Orleans
(x) been to Europe
(x) slept with a co-worker- my husband and I were coworkers for three years.
(x) been married
( ) gotten divorced- Never will!
(x) had children
( ) seen someone die
(x) had a close friend die- June 2006 one of my best friends committed suicide.
( ) been to Africa
(x) driven over 400 miles in one day- No problem! That's like an afternoon cruise.
(x) been to US - Duh!
( ) been to Mexico
( ) been to India
(x) been on a plane
(x) seen the Rocky Horror Picture Show
(x) thrown up in a bar- bar bathroom.
( ) purposely set a part of myself on fire
(x) eaten sushi
( ) been skiing/snowboarding
(x) met someone in person from the internet
( ) lost a child
(x) gone to college/university
(x) graduated college/university
(x) fired a gun
( ) purposely hurt yourself
(x) taken painkillers
( ) been intimate with someone of the same gender
(x) gone out naked in public for longer than 5 minutes- there was the skinny-dipping and a few other times, all way longer than 5 minutes!
( ) fallen in love on the first date- My love doesn't come that easy.
( ) gone to a wrestling show (WCW/WWE/ECW, etc)
( ) been engaged but didn't get married
(x) had a long-distance relationship- SSB and I were living in separate states for about a month our first summer. He ended up driving from AZ to WI to surprise me. I don't like surprises.
( ) had your electricity turned off because of a late bill - I did have the gas turned off from a late bill.
( ) had to pawn something to pay something/someone off
(x) owned a leather jacket
(x) ridden a motorcycle
(x) given a backrub
(x) given a backrub with ulterior motives
(x) given a backrub with ulterior motives and had it pay off
( ) gone to see live comedy at a comedy place
(x) found a mouse in your house by the smell of it being dead and decaying
(x) met a celebrity
(x) met a celebrity that you wanted to meet
(x) had a pet die
( ) had a crush on someone much younger than you (10 yrs and younger)
( ) had a crush on someone much older than you (10 yrs and older)

Now here are five questions that I have added:

(x) turned in a friend for something bad that they did
(x) jumped off a roof
(x) hit a person with your car
(x) seen a ghost
( ) done something that you regret to this day

June- I knew I had seen this thing someplace before! It really IS getting around!

Dr Max- I was JUST at your blog leaving a comment about the Packers at probably the very moment that you were here leaving a comment about the Packers! That is SO weird!

By the way, I need a backrub.

Blogger Sylvana said...

I have been told that I give fantastic backrubs. So good in fact, that people feel guilty that I give them for free;)
Hm, maybe I should start charging...

Months later, I finally notice this. Hell, I wasn't even a blogger when this was done. How did this get here suddenly?

I have something similar I'm planning on doing sometime soon, maybe tomorrow.
