1. Do you collect anything?
Yes. I have been collecting I Love Lucy memorabilia since I was in elementary school. I have always kept it packed up thinking that one day I would have a place to display it, especially if I had a girl then I could do her room in light green and pink with a retro vibe. Now I have no idea what I am going to do with it. It's all packed up: trivia games, metal signs, Barbies, etc.
Oh, to live at the corner of Lucy and Ethel...
I also collect random Guns 'N Roses pieces. I have a demo record with some random covers. I was so excited to get it on eBay several years ago. I also have their first album: no, not Appetite for Destruction, but Live ?!*@ Like a Suicide, GNR comic books, post cards, Rolling Stone Magazines, Circus Magazines, even concert promo flyers from the early 80's before they hit it big, random bootleg concerts, and pretty much any and every TV performance. I still always smile when I hear them, and they always have a way of sneaking onto the radio when I need a pick me up. It's sort creepy how it ALWAYS happens.
Seriously, rewind to 1988, '89, '90, '91, '92 ...Penny Lane...
2. Name 3 celebrities that you find good looking.
I'm pretty sure there wasn't a moment in The Hangover where he didn't look flat drool-worthy.
What can I say...I have a thing for hot, shaggy-haired, Biology teachers... (i.e. my hubby)
I am pretty sure that Mr. Cooper is the first celeb that makes me sweat that others find attractive. - I have somewhat twisted taste that always leaves other girls going, "Huh? Eww." i.e. Mickey Rourke (pre-scary facelift), Keifer Sutherland, Bruce Willis, …
I have loved Robert Downey, Jr. since Only You. Oh gosh, he is so perfect in that movie!
I couldn't think and asked Zac who I think are hot. His exact reply was, "That guy from The Hangover…umm…old…dirty…guys… I don't know…Marlon Brando…random fat football players…"
I guess that counts as three.
I guess that counts as three.
3. Do you have any scars? If so, what's the story behind it (them)?
Well, before last year, I didn't any. I have always thought scars were really cool because they are like little bookmarks you wear around forever. Now, I have TEN. FOUR of them are from my gallbladder removal in January of 2009 when I was in my second trimester. Yep, you can have surgery when you are pregnant, but only in your second trimester. However I wouldn't recommend it since you have to wake up from surgery and have an OB nurse check the baby before you get any pain meds. Ahh!!! Then, they slowly give it to one mg at a time so that they can keep tabs on the baby. OUCH! I have another FOUR scars from my transplant. Three are on top of my tummy from the stomach tubes, then of course the great big one from having my chest cracked open for about 6 hours. =) It's actually not nearly as bad as I had imagined it would be. It was glued, no staples or stitches.
I love my transplant scar and all that it represents. I am not even going to use any Mederma or scar treatment.
Hubs has a massive scar in his back and sides as well where he had some pretty wicked melanomas removed several years ago. His was extremely touch and go for a while, too. Our scars are such incredible reminders of how blessed we are to be survivors. I also have a scar about the size of pencil eraser from my central line and a cut on top of my hand where I was attacked by a copy machine a couple of years ago. You know, one of those heavy duty ones at work? I reached in to get my copies, and "Ouch!" I have no clue what did it but it hurt!
4. What is a food that you like to eat, but others might think it's gross or weird?
Growing up always ate everything, so I always grossed everyone at school out by eating bread crusts, chicken liver, and olives. I still eat olives, crawfish, spinach, broccoli, brussel sprouts, etc. I also love to drink plain Perrier and club soda which totally grosses my husband out.
5. Have you ever seen a tornado in real life?
No tornados, but I've been through many, many hurricanes, including Ivan, and Katrina. They just come with the territory down here.
