One reason I never liked those questionnaire things is because I always have that moment after I am done filling them out where I think, "OH WAIT!"
Anyway...I wanted to publicly post some more best friends, whom without I never would have become the person I am today: My sisters Monica, Gretchen and Bridgett, my parents, Mandy, Shem, Jeff R., and of course Jonathan.
I have a lot of best friends...and more than likely, I will remember another one as soon as I post this.
So on two different blogs that I regularly read, I was tagged...one specifically named yours truly, and the other one was a general, "If you are reading this...consider yourself tagged" type BLAG (Blog + Tag).
So, to appease the masses, I am going to accomplish both BLAGs here. The first is from Hayley and the second from my cousin Lisa:
BLAG # 1 - The A to Z tag:
A - Attached or Single: "ALONE" would have been a better "A" word here...which of course I would have to apply to my current status in life
B - Best Friends: I like that they made this a plural opportunity, because I have several friends that I would rank right up there in the "Best" category. I will break this down by relative and non-relative. First the Relatives: Erik, Noah, Gabe, Craig, Scott, Daren. Non-Relative: Blue, KA, Tim F., Scott B., Alma, Beckie and Todd B.
C - Cake or Pie: Both is an option right? Ok...gun to my head, I would have to chose pie
D - Day of choice: What kind of question is this? I would have to say TODAY
E - Essential Item: Oxygen
F - Favorite Color: Whatever actually matches when I go out in public so I am not flogged and sneered at, or embarrassing to my family
G - Gummy Bears or Worms: Gonna have to go with Worms
.H - Hometown: Good ol' Payson, UT...where everyone knows your name...
I - Indulgence(s): PCH Chili Cheese Dogs
J - January or July: Both fantastic months with good things to offer...
K - Kids: Yes...I've heard of them
L - Life is incomplete without: the letters L, I, F, or E
M - Marriage Date: Half past Febru-later
N - Number of Siblings: Cinco
O - Oranges or Apples: I know this one! They are fruits!
P - Phobias or Fears: Lupislipophobia: The fear of being chased around a kitchen table by ravenous wolves on a freshly waxed floor wearing socks
Q - Quotes: Aren't those the little punctuation marks that go around things people say? Like, "Anyone who takes offense when no offense is intended, is an idiot." Mark Twain
S - Season: Tabasco is a seasoning in my book
T - Tag Three Friends: I'd rather not
U- Unknown fact about me: My life is a pretty open book to all
V - Very favorite store: Any book store
W - Worst habit: Eating out ALL the time
X - X-ray or Ultrasound: I'm really not sure what to answer here...I defer this one to someone who knows far more than I do on such topics...JASON!
Y - Your favorite food: Chili Dogs...hands down
Z - Zodiac: Libra or Virgo...depending on which calendar you look at. Being born on the Autumnal Equinox means: I'm special.

Wow...did you read it all or just skip to this point?
I bet you are curious where I am currently standing on the pet snake issue...I have had a lot of people weigh in. First of all, Gretch...it was Noah's snake that got loose. Second...to those who have stated they won't come visit me if I get a snake...I have made arrangements for a "Sitter" any time you want to come down. And finally...I still don't know if I am going to get one. But for anyone who knew me back when I was in elementary school...you should remember that it has always been my dream to have a pet snake for more than a few days. Ask the Payson Library...I think I was the only person that checked out every single reptile book they had for a good 8 year period, (no, it didn't take me 8 years to get through elementary school...just my fascination with the Herpetology sciences extended well into my teenage years).
