A Day in the Life Too... a blog about modest style

A 30-something mom's blog about modest style, DIY stuff, and limiting dessert. Just kidding. We eat dessert first around here.

tag I'm "it"...and a few things you should know about me...

Cute Sandra over at madam0wl gave me a Stylish Blogger Award. Thanks, Sandra! I'm totally flattered. Sandra has awesome personality-packed style; check out her blog and you'll see what I mean. So here's how it works:

1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded you.
2. Share seven things about yourself.
3. Award seven recently discovered (by me, anyway) great bloggers.
4. Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award!

So. Here goes nothin'. (What you don't know is that I'm cranking up the volume on "Eye of the Tiger" right now and singing my lungs out to get myself pumped to write this.) (Wait. Shoot. TOTally should've used that as Thing #1. Nuts.)

#1: My friends and I once had a party and cleaned out all our hairbrushes in college. We then combined the hair, and, squeezed together, I think it was the size of a golf ball. Or maybe a bowling ball. Yeah, probably bowling ball. Then everyone pitched in all their pennies and asked around to see who would eat it for $40 bucks. Fast-forward two hours: Me, on the couch, groaning in discomfort, and seriously contemplating the risk-to-benefit ratio of swallowing a cup of Drano. Worst $40 I ever earned. Live & learn.

#2: My second toe on my left foot, when bent and viewed from the side, looks exactly like an elephant's leg.

#3: I remember being shocked to learn that cats didn't actually say the word "purr" when they purred. I was 14 years old when I learned this. A cat person I am not.

#4: I get very scared of scary movies. I once hyperventilated (truly) during one. Lady in White, maybe? Can't remember. I cry and have nightmares and my imagination goes into weird realms if I watch scary stuff. So I now avoid all that by closing my eyes during the scary parts of movies and hiding my head in Pocket's shoulder. Yes, he still laughs at me but is good enough to pat my arm when I can "come out now." No, I still haven't seen the Bambi forest fire scene in-full. Judge me.

#5: I have an enormous sweet tooth. Drat. You all know that already. Who cares. I typed it out, it counts.

#6: I have two fake teeth implanted into my jaw because I'm missing those adult teeth. After my surgery, Pocket called me from work to see how I was faring. Apparently, he'd been talking to his coworker about how he "might need to leave work early because my wife's recovering from her implants." You can imagine how Coworker Joe interpreted that. It took several awkward conversational turns for them both to realize just exactly what "implants" the other was talking about. I don't even know if they shared a good laugh at the end. Chances are 50/50. They're engineers.

#7: Sitting courtside at a basketball game, my face got pummeled by the ball zipping out of bounds. I was wearing my glasses at the time, and they got hashed. Mangled into my face. I think they replayed the scene over the jumbotron 183 times, no doubt in slow-mo, each time leaving me feeling awesomer and awesomer. I'll now take my chances in the nosebleeds.

So. There you have it. More than you ever wanted to know about me. The rest of me is just an empty shell of pnut m&m wrappers, really. I now tag these adorable lovelies (who I really hope haven't already done this...if so...just tell us 7 MORE things!), and anyone and everyone else who wants to play and hasn't yet. Seriously, I'd love to read all of your seven things, so let me know when you post them so I can grab some popcorn, curl up, and come check out your blogs. But for now, these ladies are required:

Heidi @ heidiluxe
Monique @ yoga & pencil skirts
Meredith @ yours, mine, & ours
Christine @ futurelint (I have nothing to wear)
Brandilyn @ cats & cardigans
Jill @ spoils of wear
Selina @ the sisters 4 say more is more
Kiki @ an outfit a day

Ladies, don't forget to pick up an Award button on the right sidebar here if you want it! Annnnd... That's a wrap.

Happy Saturday!

I giggled at number 7. I know that's rude, but I have to be honest. The idea of it playing over and over again on the jumbotron just made me laugh.
I hope you weren't hurt too badly, or I'll feel like a total jerk!

Beth Ellen said...

I totally can't watch scary movies at all either! It's the plague of my life that my roommate loves horror movies...

RaeLynn said...

Ok, back up the truck...I knew about the nasty hair incident 'CEPT for the fact that you were given $40 to EAT the hair. Oh my gosh, totally gagging.

I seriously didn't know most of these things. Implants...really Britt? Tsk tsk.

Jilliebeanie said...

There is NO possible way I can top your 7ish things. Hilariousness!!!

Thank you for awarding me. I am super-d-duperly honored. And will attempt a comparatively lame post asap.

Usually I'm a lurker but of COURSE I have to comment now that you've mentioned the hairball. Worst $40 you've ever earned, but BEST $10 I've ever spent.

heidiluxe said...

helllllo. the hairball. i can't thinkg of a better way to get my daily serving of vomit out of the way.
and thanks for the award. you slay me.

I read (& can confirm, at least for me) that shielding your eyes at the scary scenes actually makes you more scared than if you just watch. Our imaginations are much more messed up than what can be depicted on a screen (usually).
