B.Y.O.C. The PG version...

For those of you who felt compelled to skip the XXX rated BYOC from yesterday - here's Drazil's normal PG rated version so everyone can participate.


1. If you were a salad, what kind of dressing would you want on you?

Avocado ranch (which I've recently discovered from Uno's which they use on their cobb salad - AND they use Gorgonzola cheese instead of blue cheese - which in my opinion has always been the problem with the Cobb Salad - I find blue cheese icky.)  It's tangy and sweet and spicy - just like me - LOLOL.

2. What is your quirkiest habit and how long have you had it?

hmmmm.  Well I sing constantly.  In the aisles at the grocery store, at my desk at work, in all kinds of inopportune moments - any time, any place, I don't care - really I don't notice - who's listening.  I don't have a great voice - well it's okay.  I can carry a tune, people generally know what song I'm trying to sing - but it's not that I'm singing to showcase this amazing voice - I just don't even realize I'm doing it.  My mom does it too and her parents told her that if she sung at the dinner table she would wet the bed hoping to keep her quiet during dinner - it apparently didn't work and she discovered they were liars.

3. If I looked in your fridge, what’s the first thing I’d see?

Right at this moment you'd see MOUNDS of leftovers.  Holy shit we did not plan our food consumption well this week at all.  With Jack's run to the ER and guests visiting and Brad's penchant for making WAY too much chicken right before he travels and can't eat the leftovers.  It's a little frightening and embarrassing.  I just see the money that will be wasted when some of it ends up in the trash.

4. Who or what inspires you and why?

Man!  Jeez Draz - this is the kind of question I was trying to hide from to begin with.  I don't know.  I think lately (as in the past few years) it's been me.  I am doing my best lately to be the best me I can be.  The truest me.  I'm not completely successful yet but this is after a lifetime of acting like what I believed I was supposed to be in whatever situation I was in - there was no me - there was only the expected outcome.  It took a long time to peel away enough layers to be able to figure out who I am - but I think I'm getting better at that one.  I spent a lot of time rebelling against all the parts of me that were the things people saw the quickest - like doing the opposite of that - but then I was able to calm down and embrace the truth in me of those parts.  Okay - so see.... this is why these questions throw me - I go all deep.

Certainly my kids do too - as it's very important to me that they grow up to be who they are and not what me or anyone else thinks they should be and that inspires me every day to work hard to give them a good model for that.

5. Repeat question. Summarize your week in blogland and in real life.

I answered this on the “naughty” BYOC – it's all good!

Thanks for the comments on my blog... enjoyed reading the xxx post too (though I don't know if I could be so open, even to my blog posse!)
