You're It

Tagged and tagged again. Man, I gotta learn to run faster. I was tagged a few weeks ago by Dana and recently by Lorraine.
I'm supposed to write 5 things about myself. And since I've done this before, I decided to make this an interactive list, a quiz, so to speak, for your interactive pleasure, just to see how well my readers know me. Let's see how well you do. Here we go.

Question 1: Which of the following text messages did I actually receive?
a. I'm thinking about getting a puppy
b. What would you say if I said I got a tattoo
c. Can I vacuum glass
d. All of the above; (maybe I should change my number)
e. None of the above; (why would I give my kids my phone number)

Question 2: Which of the following is true about me?
a. I once accidentally set my aunt's bathroom on fire
b. I have a strong aversion to buttons
c. I wash my hands about a million times a day
d. All of the above; (umm. . . Dr. Phil please)
e. None of the above; (I'm really Mary Poppins, practically perfect in every way)

Question 3: How have I won friends and influenced people?
a. I went to college with Michael Stipe
b. I went to church with Minnie Pearl
c. My son once caddied for Samuel L. Jackson
d. All of the above; (I'm a shameless name-dropper)
c. None of the above; (who the heck is Michael Stipe?)

Question 4: Which of these statements best describes my driving skills?
a. I once backed into my dad's car and blamed him for parking behind me
b. I backed into the only pole in a parking lot while learning to drive (and blamed the pole for being behind me.)
c. I avoid parallel parking like the plague, even if it means parking a mile away
d. All of above; (you probably don't want to be anywhere near me in a car or parking lot)
e. None of the above; (I ride the bus)

Question 5: Anything else about me you should know?
a. Once I rescued a baby owl from a building (which was being demolished) and named him Bird Reynolds (until I found out it was illegal to rescue wildlife, and the wildlife agency came and took him away--I really didn't mind; I wasn't too keen on stalking and catching prey for Bird anyway. The agency left the kids, however.)
b. I was miffed in 1980 when Prince Charles decided to get married without even giving me a chance
c. I've spent way too much time writing this post and should probably get back to work.
d. All of the above; (I need to get a life)
e. None of the above; (I need to get a life)

And if you're reading this, then you must run slower than I do, so. . . . You're "It."

[Addendum: In case you're wondering, all the answers are "d". ]

And, if you're interested Nancy Malay is having a giveaway!

You are hilarious. ;) I haven't known you very long, but I'm going to answer every one as "all of the above" because from what I know of you, they seem believable ... ROTFLOL!

Hi Cathy,
I have to say that reading your hilarious posts makes my day!
It also makes me want to back track through your blog to find answers!

However, I am now wondering "Who doesn't know who Michael Stipe is?

Doreen said...

Your hysterical Cathy! I definately need to get to know you better. Isn't it funny how our quirkiness and eccentrisities are what make us feel closer and like we have more in common with others...Just goes to show you....always....BE YOURSELF! You are great and I'm glad to know you.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a lovely comment.

Have a wonderful day and thanks for sharing with us all.

Finally made it over here to check out your meme, Cathy -- very funny stuff. I wonder about the bathroom fire, though; will you be doing a follow-up explanation?
