Random Questions

Bekah at Bekah's Bits answered some questions she found in a magazine, and I can't resist this kind of thing, so I'm going to answer them too.

Has anyone ever thought you were pregnant when you weren't?
No. But I did that to my boss one time, and she was horrified. I kept my job, but ever since then I never say anything to anyone about their pregnancy until I know for certain that's what the belly is all about.

What level of SPF do you wear?
70. I hate the stuff on my face, because it makes me break out. But that's much better than burning to a crisp.

What is one lesson you learned in school that you'll never forget?
I took a Shakespeare Extensive class in college, and in Shakespeare's day, they had a concept called Right Reason, which was the perfect balance between using your emotions and using your reasoning. All decisions should be made using the proper balance and should never be based on just one or the other. Unfortunately for King Lear, he made the biggest decision of his life based solely on emotion, and because he failed to use Right Reason, he went mad. It was the appropriate result of what he did.

What's always in your refrigerator?
French Vanilla creamer. I just bought more because I was getting low. Must. Not. Run. Out.

What is the craziest thing you've done while sleep deprived?
I'm always sleep deprived. And I don't really do crazy, so probably the craziest thing was going upside-down on the Mickey roller coaster at Disneyland's California Adventure. Three times. Once with my daughter. Once with my now-roomie. And once with my very good friend the astrophysics major (who has now graduated and is a space cadet or something). I hated the roller coaster every time and only did it for them. I believe they appreciate my sacrifice.

What do you do to make your mornings less hectic?
That's not possible.

YAY!!!!! I loved your answers - although girl, I thought you were crazy for doing a coaster once. THREE TIMES? That's just NUTS.

And I have a feeling before all is said and done, I will be pullling the "are you pregnant?" card on someone who isn't. It seems Bekah-ish.

The first time, I was there with my kids, and my daughter wanted to ride it SO MUCH, but not alone, and her brother refused. As the mom, it was my duty. When the ride got to the upside-down part, I started to say a bad word, but stopped myself mid-S-word. My daughter was shocked that I even started the word.

The other two times were similar support for friends. I did not say bad words, and I haven't been back on the ride since.
