And you are....?

It's been a while since I've done a blog hop, so when I saw Emily King had one going for today, I hopped on.

Here are the ten questions I have to answer.

1. How many speeding tickets have you gotten?

My mind doesn't quite remember my high school years (I've blocked them). I think I may have gotten one or two or four, but I've only had two since I've been married and that's been twenty years.

2. Can you pitch a tent?

I can, but I refuse to. I hate sleeping on the ground.
3. What was your worst vacation ever?

When me and my husband were first married, we went on a rafting trip with a bunch of people we didn't know. We arrived at the hotel only to find out it was a communal room. Needless to say one guy snored so loud, I actually threw my shoe at him and he didn't wake up. Another couple slept naked and let their pet bunny run around the room. I also lost my wallet and it was freezing all weekend. Total trip from hell.

4. What was the last thing you bought over $100?

A pair of boots. It's cold up here in Canada.
5. We're handing you the keys to what?

A brand new house. I'm getting quite sick of mine.

6. What was the last meal you cooked that made even you sick?

I made a casserole that my mom used to make when I was a kid. Potatoes, rice, hamburger, and onions, all covered in a tomato sauce. It was awful and I made way too much. An ice cream bucket full of leftovers stayed in my fridge for a week until I finally threw it all off.

7. Fill in the blank: Oh my gosh! Becky, look at her butt! It is so big. She looks like  ____?

My mom taught me never to say anything mean out loud, but... okay... wait... now I'm all flustered and can't think of anything.

8. What was your first car?

I inherited a chevy blazer when I got married, but our first car together was a Ford Escort.

9. Your best friend falls and gets hurt. Do you ask if he/she's okay or laugh first?

Depends if she's laughing. I'd probably hold my breath for a moment before making a decision. I'm kind of a people pleaser.
10. What's the worst song ever?

Gangnam Style. Seriously. I don't get it.

This was fun. Totally looking forward to reading everyone's answers. If you're interested, see Emily's link at the top of this blog.

So how about you? If you could answer one question on this list, what would it be?


Pk Hrezo said...

Hmmm I keep seeing that song Gagnam style mention but never heard it. Now I'm curious....

Nice to meet you btw! :D

Stina Lindenblatt said...

PK has never heard of Gagnam Style???? Oh wow. lol

I've only had one speeding ticket. Ever. Though I did get a few warnings while in university.

And I hear you about sleeping on the floor. That doesn't bother me so much as the claustrophobic feel of the tent. :P

Emily R. King said...

It is cold in Canada. I lived in Prince George for four years. :)

My mom taught me not to say anything mean either, but sometimes a butt is so big, you can't help it. Ha!

J. A. Bennett said...

Yuck, that vacation sounds terrible and I'm with you on the house thing. If only I hadn't bought my current house at the top of the market, *Sigh*

Melissa Marsh said...

Oh, hahaha, I had to laugh at the couple sleeping naked with the pet rabbit! Too funny! That should really make it into one of your novels someday. :)

Worst vacation ever: hmm. Well, I'd have to say my last trip to England, but only for the last two days. I got food poisoning in London and got so sick I thought I'd have to go to the hospital. Plus, I was all alone in a London hotel. It was AWFUL.

Great questions and answers. The worst song? Any of those novelty songs that have dances that accompany them - you know the kind of song that try as you might once heard you can't stop singing it.

Azara said...

Someone brought a rabbit with them on a rafting trip? Why? How? Why???

My hubby and I are huge fans of the no-clothes sleeping, but not when other people are around. Bizarre.

Visiting from the hop.

L. Diane Wolfe said...

My husband would've taken one look at that communal room and then we would've headed home!

Tamara said...

THEY SLEPT NAKED???? haha...that's kind of hilarious. And love the addition of the pet bunny. What is a vacation without a bunny pooping all over your stuff?

I don't think I've heard that song, but your the third person who said it. haha

Tamara said...

P.S. I wanted to follow your site, but I'm on my husbands computer and Google is being stupid. I can't sign out of his name to put it in mine, but it lets me comment in my name. weird. So, I have to wait to get MY computer (which I left at a friends. GRRRR) I'll be back. :)

Chantele Sedgwick said...

Seriously, people slept naked with other people in the room? WEIRD! Also, I don't get Gangnam Style either...

Tammy Theriault said...

it sounds like you should have taken a picture of that vacay & you tubed it!! hilarious!

Trisha said...

I've seen that Gangnam Style song mentioned this blog hop too, but I don't think I've ever heard it!! Maybe I shouldn't... hehe

Shannon Lawrence said...

That is definitely the trip from Hell! Naked? A bunny? Oh, and the snorer. Good times.

Sylvia van Bruggen said...

Oh my gosh, what a trip from hell that was!!! I have to admit though that I laughed about you throwing shoes at the snorer :D

michelle said...

Pet bunny + snorer + nudity + freezing weather definitely = a living nightmare!
Gangnam style is quite a senseless song... yet it's a chart-topper!
Great answers!
Patti, it's nice to meet you via the bloghop and thanks for swinging by my blog!

Tara Tyler said...

totally agree with the song, and glad i'm not the only one who got pulled over!

Karen lee Hallam said...

Lol. You must have made all the travel arrangements, since that fateful rafting trip. scary.

Annalisa Crawford said...

Oh, the naked sleepers sound awful. Even if they were surprised by the communal room, they could have slept in something!

Happy to see Gangnam Style everywhere :-)

Lynda R Young said...

lol at Gangnam Style. I don't get it either hehehe.

Misha Gericke said...

I'm with you on Gangnam Style, although I sort of have this one artist in my country, that if you name a popular song by him, I'll say I hate it.

In general, I intensely dislike music without meaning.

Carolyn V said...

I totally agree with you on the sleeping on the ground. I'd rather have a hotel than a tent. ;)

Heidi Willis said...

That was SO FUN to read!! And that was totally the vacation from hell!! No way I would have made it through the night!

My husband, son, and youngest daughter gangnam all over the house. I'm only fond of it because it makes them laugh so much. Making memories, right? :)
