BYOC!!! Bring Your Own Crazy!!

It's Friday and you know what that means - yes?  It's time for BYOC.  Bring Your Own Crazy like your life depends on it!  We answer a few questions to get to know each other better and to give our blogging brains a break.  Copy to your own blog and ENJOY!!

Oh and before I begin - these questions come from the fabulous Joey (cuz my teensy weensy brain is shot)!  Thank you Joey - I owe you one!

1.  If you were a character on Friends, who would you be and why?

I think I'd probaby be Phoebe, with a little Monica thrown in.  I'm a little too out there - la ti da to be Rachel, though I do love my hair.  But I'm too anal to be stricktly Phoebe.  And... I can remember when Monica and Chandler were first getting together and hiding that fact and Monica had Chandler hold his breath under water in the bath they were sharing when Rachel or someone else came in to ask a question - I could totally see me doing that.

2.  If you weren't in your current career what other career do you think you would have done?

Um... Interior decorator... no.. event planner.  Yes, I'd love to be an event planner or a personal assistant.  I like the behind the scenes work vs the up front and center kind of stuff.   

3. What did you want to be when you grew up when you were 6?

No idea.  I do remember I wanted a house in which every single room was decorated in a very different style.  Like this room had a hippy feel, and that room was formal, and this other room was cottage cozy, and in here we have a 20s theme... you get the picture.

4.  Do you think everyone only has one soulmate or true love? Or are there multiple people for everyone?

I believe there is more than one.  I also believe you can find happiness without finding your soul mate, but I think they are out there and that there is more than one and that each of them touch different parts of your soul - complete you in different ways.

5.  Repeat question.  Summarize your week in real life and in blog land.

Blog land has been fun - people are getting excited about Chicago - I know I'm beyond excited.  If I could go right now I would... and I'd be fine tapping my toes in the lobby until the rest of you got there.  I'm sorry that not every single one of you is coming this year - but look forward to other ways to be able to meet you and play one day!!

Real life has been good.  For a while I've been keeping the tension somewhat high between Brad and I because he is the king of out of sight out of mind.  For the past several years, everytime I'd just relax and hang out, he'd immediately forget there was anything wrong - and well.. I was thinking if we're going to try to fix this then he needs to remember there's something to fix.  Well... for a variety of reasons I dropped the tension and it's made it SO much nicer at my house and I discovered/remembered two things.. 1) It's not my job to remind him of things this important - if he can't keep this in his mind - than he can't... done.  and 2)  no matter what I do, or what I say or how I say it, he will interpret it in the very worst possible way.  If I tell a joke (as I often do) he's far more likely these days to assume I'm being mean and sarcastic than just being the goof that is me - and... there's not a damn thing I can do about that.

And wow, that sounded like things weren't going well - but actually they're going pretty well.  I continue to be filled with good emotional energy - I am surrounded and bolstered by new friends (please refer to a mirror as soon as possible) who in many ways, big and small, remind me of all the things that this roller coaster I've been on have slowly and maybe invisibly leached out of me - and that's a damn beautiful thing!!  I so can't wait to see and squeeze each one of you in Chicago!!
