BYOC!!! Bring Your Own Crazy!!

It’s Friday and that means it’s time for Draz’s BYOC! Bring Your Own Crazy! We answer 5 questions in an effort to get to know each other better and to give our blogging brains a break. Copy to your own blog if you wish and ENJOY!

1. Name a Valentine gift you would NOT want to receive.


um… clothes of any kind; whether underwear or a parka.
2. What’s your vacation personality? Do you act/eat/talk/do things differently or completely opposite from when you are not on vacation?

Hmmm… I’d say I’m still just me – but maybe me on steroids.  I’m roughly always the same – sort of out there, ready to explore and experience new things.  If I’m with people with whom I feel safe, I will actually try the new things – if I’m not then I’ll just watch the new things – both are fun for me.  I’m much more likely to eat ice cream on vacation though.
3. Describe yourself in 5 POSITIVE words.

Fun
Spontaneous
Loyal
Honest
Authentic

4. Do you have any phobias or irrational fears or dislikes?

Oh!! I’ve got two completely stupid and irrational fears.  I am TERRIFIED of bears.  And while sure, that’s not really a stupid thing to be afraid of.  I live in fear of them IN MY HOUSE.  I back to the woods.  Woods that are in suburban MARYLAND.  It’s not exactly the height of bear country.  There are, in fact, bears in MD but not in the woods behind my house – but I swear to God I have nightmares several times a year about what if a bear got into my house – what would I do? – How would I protect my children? – How could I sacrifice my dog?  We have a dog door for the hopefully sacrificial dog and I just know someday a big huge bear is going to squeeze through there and get inside one day.

And the other one is Rocks.  Yup, you heard me… rocks.  As in the kind you climb up.  I can repel down with no problem (this does not mean I’m an expert repeller) But I will start shaking if I’m faced with having to even walk up an extremely well worn touristy type path where there are rocks and mountains in the vicinity.  It’s just their nearness that wigs me the hell out. 

(hanging head in shame)
5. Repeat question: Summarize your week in blog land and in real life.


Real life – lots of drama that I think is now over – that’s all I have to say about that.

Blog life – actually I’m not sure if this should be in the real life part or not but… I love my group of blog women (all you JKs know who you are).  You are all amazing and strong and some of the best women I’ve ever met!

i kind of always hope I see a bear. and I have never been faced with repelling but it does not sound very fun. Climbing up somehow helps me feel more in control???

I hope your drama is over and that it was not even close to the kind I can imagine it being.

I don't know what a JK is..soooo :( it must not be me.

xxxooo

our house backs to a big open field and there are in fact coyote living out there! I've heard them hunting rabbits in my yard at night. Needless to say, the kids are not allowed to play out there without me (we have no fence!). I have had a few nightmares about the coyotes getting in the house, so I feel your fear!
