Epic procrastination effort meme

This is a fun little time waster. I have about 4849399 things I need to do today before my trip, so naturally I'm doing this.

Here are the rules. If you comment on this entry I will reply with 5 subjects/things/people/whatever that I associate with you. You then have to take those five, create a new post, elaborate on them and keep it going. Anyway- I commented onaafetzer 's and here are the five things she associates with me, so I shall elaborate on them.

Red shoes: first of all, I just love shoes. Then I got addicted to What Not to Wear and Stacey and Clinton were always saying "WE LOVE A RED SHOE!" and they paired red shoes with regular everyday outfits and they're just hot. So, I got to thinking, I don't have any red shoes, so I got a pair. Then another. Then another. And now I seem to be a little obsessed. Here are some of my red shoes...and a couple of hot pink ones just 'cause that's pretty close to red.

Pregnancy: Hmm...I guess I'm associated with this because I am pregnant? lol Let's see. This is my third pregnancy. The first resulted in soon-to-be 4 year-old boy (yikes), the 2nd didn't work out and now I'm a few months along with our upcoming September bebe, that my husband is convinced is a girl. We'll see. ANYWAY. Regarding pregnancy...I don't enjoy it at all. I am blessed that I seem to come upon pregnancy easily though, at least I have that going for me. This will most likely be my last pregnancy as I am getting older, kids are expensive, I HATE BEING PREGNANT, and 2 seems to be a good number of kids. I know I complain a lot, but I really am going to try to "enjoy" this experience if that is at all possible, since I probably will never do it again. It IS exciting, it's just painful and ugly.

Horrible commercials for horrible products
(your top five)

Ohhhhhhh let's see here. I have probably blogged about them all from time to time. I really don't know why I hate these so much. I just do. My top 5 commercials that make me want to hurt people would be:
1. SNUGGIE- Wear a freakin' sweatshirt for Godssake.
2. Cristy Lane Christmas- She did not capture the world with her voice.
3. ShamWOW or SlapChop starting the ShamWOW idiot with the headset.- I just hate him.
4. Anything OxyClean related- must he scream at me?
5. KidsBop- I believe in teaching kids to appreciate real music, not the watered down version sung by annoying children.

Writing: After I had my son I started writing a few little funny stories on my Myspace blog, and a lot of my family and friends thought it was really good and that I should do something with it. I wrote a few pieces and sent them into the newspaper here and they liked them so much they offered me my own weekly column, humorous parenting type stuff, or whatever I wanted to write about really. It was really fun and I enjoyed doing that a lot. Unfortunately, the paper shut down and I haven't really tried to sell any of my work since. A few random submissions here and there but nothing has come of it. I guess I lost my mojo. Anyway- in my spare time I write some fictional stuff, but I haven't really worked on that in a long time. Sometimes I think I'm really good, sometimes I think I suck and who am I kidding trying to break into this impossible field. It just depends on the day. For the last several months I have been focusing on the "who am I kidding" part.

Kicking Dora's ass: I don't know how to answer this one. Are you asking why I want to kick her ass or how would I do it? I will answer both. She makes my skin crawl. I am far too cynical and sarcastic to be able to deal with such a stupid ass show. Unfortunately, my kid loves it. Fine. He's picking up a few words of Spanish, that's good, so I try to remember that while he's watching. But in my head, I'm thinking of ways I'd like to shut her up once and for all. I wouldn't mind seeing her choke on her annoying map, or fall of a cliff all Wylie Coyote style, splat.

Wow. You have a serious collection of red shoes. I only have one pair. Well, two if you count the boots I never wear. I need to catch up.

Anyway. I'd rather procrastinate than continue my epic cleaning session (esp. since my ENORMOUS belly keeps getting in the way), so I'm commenting. :)

I love your red shoes . . . and the pink ones too. I don't like the idiot with the headphone/microphone thing either. He creeps me out. And the Oxiclean guy does other commercials now too . . . and he's just as annoying in them! What's up with that? Billy Mayes (I think that's his name), why do you have to scream at us?
Mar. 6th, 2009 01:27 am (UTC)
I'm going to assume you're commenting to play my game. :)

Oooh, that is one SWEET red shoe collection!
