Wednesday Weirdness


I don't usually do the Wednesday Weirdness, but since I didn't do TMI Tuesday I thought it might be a little bit fun!

1.) When was your last visit to an emergency room? What happened?

Being a parent, my last trip to the ER was with my son. It was back in June. He decided riding his bike without a helmet was a good thing (If you are interested, you can read about it [HERE]). A few x-rays and an exam later, we walked out with a diagnosis of a mild concussion. Chances are pretty darn good that for the next six years any visits I make to the ER will be child focused!

2.) Who do you look more like: Mom, dad or another relative?

Both! People see photos of my mom and say, "You look just like your mom!" Then they see photos of my dad and say, "You look just like your dad!" Then they look at photos of my mom and dad and say, "They look like brother and sister."

I'll see if I can't find a photo of all three of us and scan it for you.

Found one! Don't laugh too hard! 1989 is the most recent one I can find!

3.) What sounds annoy you?

I am one of those people. You know the type ... the ones who are easily irritated by what seems like nothing. At the top of my list would be nail clipping, pen clicking (retractable pen) and any noise made while eating or chewing gum (usually the result of doing either one with the mouth open).

4.) What are three movies could you(or have you) watch(ed) over and over and still love?

  • Any of the Matrix series (The Matrix, The Matrix Reloaded, The Matrix Revolutions)
  • Forest Gump
  • Shawshank Redemption

5.) Do you ever wish you were someone else?

For the most part, I like who I am on the inside - it's the outside I find disgusting. As long as I can remember, I've always wanted to be me, but in someone elses body. In fact, I used to think it was a huge waste to see ugly girls with great bodies and wanted nothing more than to stick my head on their body. Yes ... I know ... kind of odd.

6.) What do you think of when you think of Paris?

The Louvre. Probably the only reason I would ever travel to France.

7.) What'​ s the last sport​ing event​ you watch​ed?​

On television? NASCAR (Shhhhh! My redneck roots run deep. And of course I don't have a driver *cough*GregBiffle*cough*). In person? Minor league baseball this past summer.

8.) What do you think about sexual Role Playing?

Whatever trips your trigger! You know, other than consent, I just don't have hangups surrounding sex.


Thought I'd throw in a bonus photo for you. I wanted to add this to My Veteran's Day post yesterday, but didn't get around to scanning it. This is my headshot taken after I won Soldier of the Quarter at Fort Meade. I tried to compensate for the lack of hair length by making those bangs as tall as I could!



Adam Apple said...

Great first time playing. I forgot about pen clicking. That one drives me nuts as well.
Nice photo. There is something about a woman in uniform ...

Nolens Volens said...

It sure was fun to see you then (1989) and then (you in uniform...ohh la la!), but you're definitely a MILF! The fact that I've never been with a woman who is 6' tall or more makes it oh so erotic to think about. ;)

Matt-Man said...

You do look like your Mom, and Dad in that pic? Man, he looks thrilled.

If you'd like, you can stick your head on my body, but I don't think it is in the way intended. Cheers!!

Nicey said...

Nice hair !! I should give you a hair off but you would win, and where are the shoulder pads that you all used to wear !

tt said...

Love the pics!! For the record...I think you and your Mom look like twins! Really.

Thank you babe...for your service! It's an honor to know you!

Karen said...

Wow....those are some bangs! Sort of looks like my yearbook photos.

I like those questions!

g-man said...

I'm so with ya on the chewing. One time I contemplated homicide because I could not stand her chewing.

Thanks for the pictures (I think you look like your mom, mostly) The Soldier one especially.

Flyinfox_SATX said...

You are a Certified...Bonafide...Hottie. In or out of Uniform!

Deranged Princess said...

I'm with you on the chewing noises - and let those redneck NASCAR roots run wild!

buffalodick said...

All pretty cool! Mom and Dad did good...

Jormengrund said...

I've got a question..

The picture in Question #2..

Which one are you? They all look alike! (kidding!)

Oh, and LOVE the hair service pic.

Me? I looked BALD, because my CO couldn't stand it if we had enough hair on the top of your head that he could get a grip on..

So, we usually had our heads shaved twice a week to keep the hairs down!

Great answers, Dana!

Dana said...

Adam Apple, if I'm honest, just about any incessant noise drives me batty.

Nolens Volens, got a thing for tall women do you??

Matt-Man, I have to say that was an event my father was attending about 8 years after their divorce. He pretty much looks like that any time he is forced to be in the same room as my mother.

Dana said...

Nicey, the shoulder pads we earlier in the 80's. What a fun time in fashion that was!

tt, thank you! I seem to be a pretty good blend of them both - my dad's facial structure with the details of my mom.

Karen, when you can't have any other hair, you've got to make what you've got seem like a lot!

Dana said...

g-man, when I was working for the law firm there was one attorney who had the most atrocious table manners I have ever seen from any adult. Homicide crossed my mind when I had to eat with him!

Flyinfox, *blushes*

Deranged Princess, I try to hide the redneck roots but they are just so deep!

Dana said...

Buff, I tell myself the reason I am an only child is because they got it right the first time!

Jormengrund, I thought I had better offer proof of service before my integrity was questioned!

Anndi said...

Open mouth chewing noises make me nuts...

You really do look like your Mom.

Bond said...

Well, you proved one thing with your two pictures....you know how to work that hair high high high!


Leighann said...

I'm alawys hearing my kids tell each other to stop making "that" noise "before you annoy mom" so I guess I must be easily annoyed. LOL

I can't stand to sit next to Thing #1 because she's always unconciously popping her lips! GAH!

As American as Apple Pie said...

I think you look most like your Mom.

The hair kills me!!! You do have great brows, though.

Real Live Lesbian said...

If we ever meet, you are teasing my bangs! LOL Damn woman, you have a talent for that!

No doubt that those are your parents!

Love the pics!

Jay said...

Great family photo. I see you got your hotness from your mother. ;-)

And those bangs! Very impressive!

Dana said...

Anndi, my other biggy is snapping gum - GHACK!!

Bond, I can do 80's hair with the best of them!

Leighann, you? Easily annoyed? No way! I refuse to believe it!!

Dana said...

Apple, the hair kills me, and it was mine!

RLL, it's amazing what a little AquaNet can do for a girl!

Jay, actually, my mom has aged well - I hope I can manage to do the same!

Ms. Inconspicuous said...

You do look like a nice mix of both your parents. Thanks for sharing the photo!

Biscuit said...

Oh, girl, you are ROCKIN' the mall bangs, there!!! I have many a pic that could compete with that. Don't think you've won that award, yet!

Anonymous said...

Oh, man, Dana, I'm w/ you on those noises!

I had this aunt - the one I lived w/ in h.s. - who would eat and talk with her mouth full. It was the most disgusting thing ever. She was an intelligent business woman but she had no clue how bad it was I don't think. Really gross.

Love the hairstyle flashbacks. In that first pic, you do look a lot like your mom. She looked great! No wonder your dad was angry looking. LOL The 2nd pic, something about you reminds me of pics of your son I've seen here.

Lu' said...

Pic 1, I think you resemble your Mom and I think you Dad looks pissed off.

Pic 2, those bangs are great. Did the bird nesting in them keep you up at night :) Kisses...

Dana said...

Ms. I, I must say it is nice to be able to share it!

Biscuit, no way! You were an Aqua Net fan too??

FF, I think it's my ROUND face (quite apparent with my hair pulled back) that resembles Cam - poor kid!

Vixen said...

God, pretty high on my list too is the whole chewing with your mouth open....

Love the last pic of you. :)

M said...

And you succeeded!! (on the bangs)

Loved your answers!!

Dana said...

Lu, my dad always looks like that when in the same room as my mother!

Vixen, now posting that pic should be considered brave!

M, I'm wondering if I could still do that with my bangs now. I'm thinking I might be able to!

we're doomed said...

Slurping soup or a drink with a spoon. I want to kill, really!! You look so cute in those pics.

Anonymous said...

Wow an EFMB, now that is an achievement. Not to mention soldier of the quarter at Fort Meade, not an easy thing to do. Again, thank you for your service.

Dana said...

Doomed, "cute" would not be my word of choice, but thanks!

Kannon7, I'm always surprised when I "run in to" someone who knows about the trials and tribulations of the EFMB. I would say that is likely my greatest pride during my military service. Not only did I earn the EFMB on my first try, but I did it while in Korea, which I understand is one of the most difficult places to be successful!

Another Suburban Mom said...

Great answers. And those bangs are a work of art!

garbonzo said...

Look at that hair!!!! 1989 was a good year!
