That is so weird. I don't care who you are. That's weird.
Anyway. On with the questions.
My question is:
Why do you think you are unattractive?
Well, in my world, attractive means thin. It always has. I've never been thin, therefore, I've never been attractive.
It did not help that both of my sisters are like, models. It also did not help that I am way taller than everyone else, clumsy, goofy, had a part between my front teeth so big that you could drive a truck with the doors open through it and glasses like Brainy Smurf (without the charm). I was not, nor have I ever been, bringing sexy back.
I could go on about being dumped by a high-school boyfriend (his name was Ernest. Wretch) who told me he wanted to be with someone prettier than me and then went out with this girl and I swear to frog she looked like a complete hooker and smelled like she bathed in Jean Nate. But that's the past and I won't get into all that.
Tiger Lamb Girl asks:
Wanna be my friend?
I already am!
Then she asked:
Would you like to come to England for a visit? If so, would you come down to the Southwest and hang out with us? We could freak the locals out with our Southern accents. And Baptist backgrounds. Bwaahaaahaaa.
I would love to visit England. I've always thought about it.
Also? My accent freaks out people who live in...North Carolina. So I can't imagine what hysterics it would cause people in England.
Kellie asks a bunch-o-stuff:
When are you coming to NY? Specifically to the part of NY *I* live in? :)
I don't know. I've been to New York, but it's been a million years ago. If I'm coming back, I'll let you know, okay? Because you? I like.
I already know your real name ;) I won't tell. Unless you tell me Target sucks or something :)
Thank you. And I'd never blaspheme Target in such a way.
Anything I'd ask, most people have already done. So, I'll ask something entirely stupid: How may pair of shoes do you own?
Oh holy crap. I thought I didn't own that many, but when I started thinking about? Well, I have a few.
I have: brown crocs, brown ballet flats, black ballet flats, brown sandals, black sandals, brown "dress" shoes, black "dress" shoes, these really cool brown shoes that are the closest thing I have to heels, New Balance sneakers, hiking boots, really pretty brown boots I got not long ago and haven't worn yet, pink flip flops, brown flip flops, Adidas soccer slides, and these really nice Birkenstocks that I don't wear very often because they make my feet smell like...well, feet.
I don't wear heels because I'm already close to six feet tall and also? I am so clumsy. Oh my Lord. When those chunky heeled shoes were all the rage back in 1996 or so? I would literally fall off my own shoes. I wish I was kidding, but sadly, I am not.
Also? Apparently I love black and brown. Who knew?
And, as someone above said: why are you so hard on yourself? You're entirely too sweet and generous to be putting yourself down. Makes me sniffle :(
Thanks. I'm in therapy. Maybe it will start working someday.
A spin on Emma's question - have you ever been to Canada? If so, where? If not, why not? Where in Canada would you like to go?
Nope, never been to Canada. I've never been out of the United States at all.
I've just never gotten there. I would love to visit, although I have no idea what part. My plan was to just go where my friends are!
you said once that you can't live in the same place too long.so, when do you plan on moving to Atlanta?
Oh, I say that A LOT. A lot. I don't like living in the same place very long. I've been working REALLY hard to curb my enthusiasm regarding this since I have two nine-year-old's at home who would probably like to go the same school for several years in a row.
Sorry Frannie, as much as I love you, Atlanta is not high on my list. Frankly? It scares me. I am hoping the next place I move is more of a small town and slower pace. Not that I'm in some huge metropolis now or anything, but its bigger than what I grew up with.
Over the weekend? I applied for a job in Kentucky. Does anyone live in Kentucky and want to share with me some information regarding it? Because I have no idea what goes on there except for people making Fried Chicken and that even may be a myth.
How do we get rid of Tyra Banks and get you on the air in her place? You are so damn funny and straight forward-you should have your own show-or at the very least an advice column!
Although really? I don't hate on Tyra after she went on television and told the collective media to kiss her fat ass. I know she loves herself enough for all of us combined, but still. She's alright by me.
Funny thing though, way back forever ago when I had a "website" people would actually write to me and ask for advice. Why? I have no idea. But they did. And I would post the answers on my website and it was really, really funny. No one asks me for advice anymore, but if they ever did I think it would be fun to do an advice column.
With a huge disclaimer that I don't have my own crap together and probably should not be legally allowed to advise anyone else. Of course.
ps could you kindly reconsider your stance on crazy people? i am crazy people. we're lots of fun.
Hence the name of my blog posting today.
Crazy people=All good to me.
