100 Truths 1

100 Truths

From time to time, I get tagged in fun posts that share some fun answers on an array of topics and questions.  100 Truths just happens to be one of them.  Thanks goes out to Britt from Alternatively Speaking for the tag– You can view her post with all of her fun answers here.

This tag was originally created by Debbie at My Random Musings and was designed to include a mix of different topics, opinions, and random facts, spanning a number of different subjects. Those who do it will sometimes skip some of the questions if they aren’t interested in answering them, and that’s cool too! It’s all about getting to know each of you a little better.

So let’s do this, shall we?  Grab yourself a cup of coffee or something, it’s going to be a long one.

Nope.

Again, aren’t we all guilty of this at some point in your life?

Your Beliefs and Opinions

I believe in equality for all.

55 – Are you pro-life or pro-choice?

Pro-choice.

I guess I’d consider myself moderate? All I know is that I can’t publicly state my political opinions because of my employer so I’m usually pretty mum on the topic. God forbid if and how anything is perceived.

57 – Do you have strong religious beliefs?

No, they’re actually quite liberal.

58 – What do you think the most important thing you can give a child is?

Spending two weeks in Barbados this July.

65 – What’s your pet hate right now?

Liars, people that pretend to be someone or something they’re not, bloggers that shamelessly steal other people’s photos (ever image search on google? I have and I’ve even emailed image creators to tell them their shit is being used by others), and one last thing: people doling our advice they are absolutely unqualified to give or have no business giving.

66 – What’s your favourite thing right now?

My new Lululemon Scuba hoodie. I haven’t bought a new one in over ten years, which is just as well since they cost a small fortune. Lol!

Reading blog posts and responding to comments. Thanks for the distraction. Lol!

Firsts

68 – Your first best friend?

Jenna.

69 – Your first kiss?

If I recall correctly, it was to the dude I lost my virginity to, I think? Lol! Good lord that’s a long time ago. Can I use that as my excuse as to why I don’t remember?

70 – Your first celebrity crush?

I’m gonna go with JTT – who remembers Jonathan Taylor Thomas? I loved that kid. Lol!

71 – Your first holiday?

My first holiday that I remember? Or my actual first holiday? My first holiday that I remember is going Jamaica with my mom after my dad died. Mom got so sick and here I was, this little gaffer, and I was taking care of momma. All I have to say is that I’m glad my mom had her stroke and cerebral aneurysm before she had me and before my dad died. I wouldn’t have known what the hell to do.

72 – Your first pet?

A tuxedo dwarf rabbit named Robin.

73 – Your first regret?

I like to say that I have zero regrets. Sure I’ve made mistakes but they’ve all been learning experiences.

74 – Your first job?

I worked at a shoe store (Aldo) when I was 14 or 15. That just expanded my shoe obsession.

75 – Your first childhood memory?

Sometimes I feel like I can recall time with my dad before he died, but I’m not even sure if that’s my memory or my recollection from photos I’ve seen. I distinctly remember Halloween 6 days before he died and 11 days before my third birthday. The nurses were all so kind to me and brought me a massive bowl of candy because here I was, in the hospital, watching my father die before our eyes.

Which Would You Choose?

76 – Love or money?

Love.

77 – Twitter or Facebook?

FB.

Relationships are so much nicer than playing games and shit.

The Flynns

79 – Dogs or cats?

Dogs!! But I do want a hairless Sphynx someday. 🙂

80 – Coffee or tea

I like both.

81 – Beer or wine

One beer is nice when it’s hot in the summer, but more than that, I feel way too bloated. Wine can go either way. I either get super happy or super bitchy/angry. Lol!

82 – Sweet or Savoury?

Depends on my mood.

83 – Introvert or extrovert?

Introvert.

84 – Vampires or werewolves?

What context are we talking here? Lol

If I had the choice, I live by the ocean. But thinking about where I currently live, I’d love to live in the country. I can’t stand neighbors all up in your shit.

86 – Summer or winter?

Summer, I’m a friggin reptile.

87 – Books or movies?

Both please.

88 – Horror or comedy?

Comedy.
