...because my other post was a victim of extortion

Didn't you love those finish the sentence exercises in elementary school when you were led gently towards a chance to express yourself, eased in with a prompt? A segue into the Choose Your Own Adventure Books?

That's what you're getting today, because all of the time I'd normally use to craft blog posts has been extorted by The Sopranos. Don't worry, I'm about to start Season 6B, so that family will not be the boss of me for much longer. 

My happy place...Is at the shore or in my house. I love being at home. 
Whatever happened to...Steve Perry?
So what if...I've been watching The Sopranos like it's my job?
E! needs a reality show about...mummers, called As the Banjo Strums. 
My go-to fast food meal is...mainly consumed when I'm hungover or on a road trip. McD's two burgers and fries meal. NOT cheeseburgers, assholes. They always try to fuck me. 
You might not know that...when I see someone wearing a scarf like Shirley in Laverne & Shirley my mind immediately comes to the conclusion that they've probably been bitten by a vampire. 
The hottest quarterback in the NFL is...I pay very little attention to the NFL, except this year if the Eagles win I get free coffee from DD. 
If I could...I surely would. Thank you Simon & Garfunkel. 
My personality is awesome because...I don't care what people think about me. If you like me, that's great. If you don't, that's okay too. 
Twerking is...ridiculous. But I'm sad that twerking video where the girl caught on fire was staged because that shit was hilarious.
I think it's super gross when...sheets aren't changed weekly. 
Someone needs to tell Miley enjoy it while it lasts, because it won't last long. 

Play along, kids. Leave me your answers in the comments!

September 11 - As always, reflecting today...remembering those we lost that day and the lives we've lost overseas since in our attempts to eradicate terror. I wish we remembered more today about the acts of kindness in the days that followed, and the feeling of unity and love for country and our fellow citizens. For more of my thoughts, read last year's Resilience post. 

Linking up with


  1. Did you know that I am a very very very huge Paul Simon fan? You are just like getting bonus points in my blog friend book lately. Already loved you and your blog, and now it's like extra sprinkles on there. :)

    Ew, yes, unclean sheets. Ick. There's nothing like fresh sheets!

  2. YOU DON'T GET CHEESE ON YOUR BURGERS?!?!? That is blasphemous. I'm not sure I've ever had a plain hamburger from McDonald's.

    You know I'm with you on the dirty sheets. I wrote about dirty mattresses (puke) in my post.

    Your post made me have a Sopranos montage in my mind of random moments. I can't remember when some of them happened, so I don't want to give any spoilers, but there was one with Vito that horrified me at the time because I never saw it coming (har har). If you've seen it, you'll know what I mean.

  3. yep, i'm with you...i ran out of fucks to give a LONG time ago so if people don't like me, well, i don't give a fuck because i have none! LOL

    Vodka and Soda

  4. My happy buried in my couch or snuggled in bed at bedtime when I don't have to get up in the morning.

    Whatever happened to...Matt Dillion. No, seriously. I love him in Mr. Wonderful.

    So what if...there are piles of laundry all over the top floor of my house?

    E! needs a reality show about...honest people doing good work? Hahaha

    My go-to fast food meal is...crispy chicken sandwich w/ L/T/no mayo from Wendy's with fries and sweet and sour sauce. Obviously, try to avoid this at all costs.

    You might not know that...I again find myself doing the work I love at a company I do not love. I have been thinking about branching off into freelancing full time.

    The hottest quarterback in the NFL is...Aaron Rodgers. Someone has to seem nice and funny to be really "hot" to me, and he seems like he'd be both!

    If I anywhere right now, I'd probably be home in bed.

    My personality is awesome because...I'm curious, kind, and (sometimes) funny.

    Twerking thing I am too scared to try. Ha!

    I think it's super gross when...towels smell like mildew.

    Someone needs to tell Miley Cyrus..."You're going to be all right (if you put pants on)." And ditto what you said!

  5. Now I want to listen to some Simon & Garfunkel.

    When I see a scarf tied like that I think hickey, probably because years ago my SIL got one from a random guy the night before we had to sing at a friend's wedding. So a scarf magically became part of her outfit.

  6. Lia - So many opportunities for freelance out there! I think that would be wonderful for you.

    If you find Matt Dillon, let me know where he is. I miss him too.

    I hope Ms. Cyrus gets your pants memo.

  7. My happy place is my house or Cape May.
    Whatever happened to The Family Dog?
    So what if carbs make me fat?
    E! needs a reality show about old people.
    My go-to fast food meal is subway chicken on 9 grain honey oat with extra swiss, tomatoes, spinach, avocado, and southwestern chipotle sauce. toasted.
    You might not know that I'm not really as difficult as I appear to be.
    The hottest quarterback in the NFL is too young for me...
    If I could, I probably wouldn't. I'd procrastinate.
    My personality is awesome because I love to make people laugh.
    Twerking is not something I better do anytime soon.
    I think it's super gross when people chew with their mouths open.
    Someone needs to tell Miley Cyrus she's not all that.

  8. My happy place ... is curled up on my oversized chair with a book and a cup of coffee.
    Whatever happened to ... the stars of Kids Incorporated?
    So what if ... I like a little coffee with my creamer.
    E! needs a reality show about ... running for office. As long as it shows what egotistial idiots most politicians are.
    My go-to fast food meal is ... Le Big Mac. Such a guilty pleasure.
    You might not know that ... I have never owned a car with an automatic transmission.
    The hottest quarterback in the NFL is ... NOT Tom Brady.
    If I could ... I would adopt all the animals in shelters and open a dalmation plantation.
    Twerking is ... no.
    I think it's super gross when ... my husband doesn't empty his lunch bag when he comes home from work.
    Someone needs to tell Miley Cyrus ... being skanky does not equal growing up.

  9. someone needs to tell miley cyrus... congrats because her youtube video already has like 40 million views, shes laughing all the way to the bank

  10. McD's is the hangover cure! I immediately think Hickey on the scarf! Diamonds on the souls of her shoes is still one of my favs.

  11. Hey ladddyyyy you need to watch orange is the new black. Between that and sopranos you are set for life not to get murdered. Also I nominated you for an award on my blog, I know, I know I am a rule breakerrrrr :-)

  12. My happy wherever I'm on vacation. My vacations involve little to no stress at this point, and I love that.

    Whatever happened to...Sting's first wife? I'd be bitter if I were her.

    So what if...I spend entire days watching shit on Hulu or Netflix? Ain't nobody but me up in my house, mofos.

    E! needs a reality show theatre, titled "Really Waiting for Guffman."

    My go-to fast food meal is...a Big Mac, about twice a year. My stomach revolts after.

    You might not know that...I almost always assume that most noises in my house are a ghost trying to communicate from the great beyond.

    The hottest quarterback in the NFL is...I'm liking Aaron Rodgers

    If I could...change the world, I would be the sunlight in your universe.

    My personality is awesome because...I can almost always laugh at life. If I can't, I work hard not to share my shitty mood with the world.

    Twerking is...not good for your posture.

    I think it's super gross when...people spit in public.

    Someone needs to tell Miley Cyrus...that less is more.

  13. Haha Love this. Yea twerking is ridiculous to me lol

  14. I paraphrased this in a tweet-"remembered more today about the acts of kindness in the days that followed, and the feeling of unity and love for country and our fellow citizens"
    Fun blog. I will fill in my blanks-
    hey this would be a good guest blog for me.
    Your MOMMA

  15. that is the most perfect response to miley ever!!

  16. Steve Perry! I just read something about him a few weeks ago. His girlfriend died of cancer last year and then he got skin cancer earlier this year. Sad! He's had a tough life.

  17. Shirley's scarf can't be comfortable.

    I think E needs a reality show about Beyonce and Jay-Z. I would watch.

    My go-to fast food is Chick-fil-a, no question.

    I think it's super gross if I don't wash my hands pretty much immediately upon entering my house from being out somewhere.

  18. Can I steal this? I might steal this. I am far too lazy to craft more than 1-2 posts a week lately. I was blaming Scandal and soon I will have SOA to blame.

    Also I need you to write an entire post about mummers. Pretty please!

  19. Girl, I don't care if you are hung over or not....please stop eating at McD's....Jack in the Box is sooooo much better! ;)

  20. This makes me smile. And hungry. I want some Mickey Deez now. Big arse fry with lots of salt and ketchup. A giant Diet Coke. Two cheeseburgers (with cheese, actually). And, maybe even a hot fudge sundae. Mmmmmmtasma.

  21. Hahaha, I know NO ONE else who gets the double burger meal with fries! Sometimes I get cheese, but still...we'd be the best drunk friends <3 and I was sadly also bummed that the twerk/fire girl was staged. I died.

  22. Lol twerking really is ridiculous. So is the word "twerk".

    This was fun! I filled it out on my blog too. Thanks!

  23. I love the Simon and Garfunkel reference! :)

  24. * My husband is convinced that Steve Perry died of cancer. I know that he didn't, but I think it's funny that he wants to argue with me about it.
    * My happy place is at the beach.
    * My go-to fast food has always been a double cheeseburger from McD's, but I love me some Cook Out. Do you have those? Mmm.

  25. I am very sad that they put twerk in the dictionary. REALLY!?!?!!?!?! Embarrassing..

  26. Mummers reality show, yes. Naming it As the Banjo Strums, no. Those of us that have ever made the mistake of watching Deliverance would be glad to explain to you how hard we try on a daily basis to not think about Banjos or pig squeals. Ironically, I wanted to pig squeal when I saw your blog because I'm here from the link up and could not help but note that your header has a photo of Gone With the Wind. Read it. Loved it. Feel like the only girl in America that's read it. Holla. Unless it was a stock photo you used and any books would do. In which case, it's still holla because I'm a book lover but not full holla back.


Tell me what you think, leave a comment! I'll reply to you via email if you have an email associated with yourself, otherwise, check back here for my reply. Thank you and good day. I SAID GOOD DAY.
