Oh, I am giddy....I love feeling special and Chelle did that for me today!  Plus I get to choose 5 to nominate---LOVE THAT

The rules:
1. Think of 11 facts you'd like to share about yourself.
2. Answer the questions I asked.
3. Think of 11 questions you'd like to ask (come on, have fun, it's a way to be nosy without being rude)
4. Nominate 5 bloggers (apparently they should have less than 200 followers).

2.  I always like to have socks on ...fresh ones I prefer..I do not like to wear flip flops or go without something covering my feet
3.  I had a guy lick my toes once..it grossed me out and turned me on at the same time.
4.  I did a pub crawl in London when I worked for the airlines..it was a 24 hour flight and I never really saw anything in London just some bars..I was so trashed I don't remember that much...I was in my 20's...second job after college
5.  I have a tendency to take over things and control things...I am a little OCD 
6.  I hate getting my face wet...I used to own a jet ski and went to the lake almost everyday but I hated getting my face under water..felt almost claustrophobic.

Questions asked by the person who nominated me, Chelle from

1.   Where would you live if money was no object?
Portland..and I am guessing here because I love the green and the water..I would love to have a place on the lake.

2.   Tell me your best "I'm a klutz!" story.
I worked at this quite large firm when I was 25yrs old and I had these pants that zipped up in the back.  I went to the potty one morning and forgot to zip up my pants...I had leopard print underwear on ..... no one told me all day long....I found out when I got home.  I was given grief the rest of the time I worked there..

3.   Would you rather fight one horsed size duck, or one hundred duck sized horses?  (Thanks, Reddit!)
One horsed size duck....I would get anxiety from the 100 duck sized horses.

4.   What is the most embarrassing song you know all the words to?
You shook me all night long by ac/dc....my girlfriend and I memorized the words in high school...by recording the song from the radio on a cassette and pausing and rewinding a gazillion times!

5.   Who/what band was your first concert?
My mom did not let me go to concerts...she thought they were the devil...First concert was when I was 18 in college...Bon Jovi/Skid Row.....I slapped Bon Jovi's butt as he ran by on the prop during the concert...thought it was the coolest thing...we camped out all day so that we could sit up close because it was general admission...had a blast!

Hot...I live in the desert..duh.

I love Portland. I want to move there so bad. Hubby doesn't want to. Boo. Now all our family is here so I will probably die in the desert.

I so totally used to hold the tape recorder up to the raido to tape songs! I would get so mad when my mom would walk in my room and say something (ruining my recording) after I had been waiting all day for that song to come on!
