Who the hell are you?

I've been tagged.  Again.  When I got tagged by two of my friends and fellow bloggers, I knew I was in trouble.  This one is fun, though, and you'll learn all kinds of interesting things about me.  
Mom-spirational and The Plucky Procrstinator both said I had to do this.  Go check them out - they are both amazing!
1.  Where were you born.  I was born in Simi Valley, CA.  My mom went into labor at the bowling alley.  My dad was bowling a perfect game and she didn't want to ruin it, so no one told him.  Blew it in the tenth, but he got me.  LOL
2.  Were you named after someone?  Um, yes.  I was named after Jaclyn Smith's character in the TV show Charlie's Angels.  We also had a dog and cat named Starsky and Hutch.  What can I say?  My parents watched a lot of TV in the 70's.

3. How many children do you have?  Four.  It explains a lot.  The one I lost before them all explains more, though.
4. How many pets do you have?  1 dog (who talks), 1 temporary dog (who can barely get up, but is amazingly competent when it comes to knocking over trash cans), 1 cat (who is a total ass), 2 hamsters (I'm amazed they are still alive).
5. Your worst injury.  I have irrational fears of hurting myself, so I try to avoid injuries as much as possible.  The worst was probably when I ate it riding my brother's skateboard as a kid.  Road rash over too much of my body to discuss.  That bad.
6.  Do you have a special talent?  I can juggle.  No, really.  I can.  Good to know I can always run away and join the circus if need be.
7.  Favorite thing to bake.  I stress bake. I don't particularly like to eat baked goods, but I make them when I'm a mess, usually with no warning or planning, so I have to use whatever is in the house.  This week, I made strawberry oat bars.
8. Favorite Fast Food.  I love the chicken soft tacos from Del Taco, and the chicken sandwiches from Chick fil-A are insanely good even though I refuse to eat them.  I wish they weren't homophobic jerks so I could go eat one.  Nom nom nom.
9.   Would you bungee jump? No freaking way.  I have bad knees already, have a fear of falling and am a total control freak.  No.  No, no, no.
10.  What is the first thing you notice about people?  Whether they set off my radar.  I have very good instincts about people, and I know within seconds if I'm going to like someone.   Conversely, I can smell a person without integrity a mile away.  Watch out, now.
11.  When was the last time you cried?  Last night.  Don't ask.
12.  Any current worries.  Only a million of them.  
13.  Name 3 drinks you drink regularly.  Coffee, tea, vodka.  (shhh)
14.  What’s your favorite book?  The Social Transformation of American Medicine.  No, I'm not kidding.  Yes, I am a dork. 
15.  Would you like to be a pirate.  YES!  They are on the water all the time, they wear lots of bling, they get to fight and curse and drink.  I'd make a fine pirate, argh.
16.  Favorite Smells.  Home cooked food, fresh brewed beer, cut grass (even though I'm allergic), the beach and baby head.  Oh, baby head.  
17.  Why do you blog?  Sanity.
18. What song do you want played at your funeral?  Ave Maria.
19.  What is your least favorite thing about yourself.  I'm a total control freak.  Pretty sure I've referenced that a few times already.
20.  Favorite hobby.  Writing, reading, music, watching the kids play all the sports they are in.
21.  Name something you’ve done, you never thought you would do?  I never thought I would be in a position to give someone morphine, but I was.  
22.  What do you look for in a friend.  Someone who can laugh with me, at me, and who can take a joke.  Someone who gets my sense of humor.  Someone who won't betray me. I don't do so well with that.
23.  Favorite Fun things to do?  I love to get out and take pictures.  I'm drawn to water, almost like it has a gravitational pull on me.  
24.  Pet peeves. Kids who never clean up anything, people who give unsolicited advice, people who can't drive, spammers.  I could go on, but you probably sensed that already.
25.  Whats the last thing that made you laugh?  The four year old singing this song he made up about a monkey, which requires guitar accompaniment.  It's an awesome song.  Honest.
Now, I am supposed to tag other bloggers.  I'll tag the ones who'll love me the most for doing this, I linked their Facebook pages.  Mwhahahaha.


  1. Drawn to water? You must be one of those fruity Pisces people. Just a guess.

    You are an angel for not tagging me but thank you for reminding me that 2 other bloggers did .Like, months ago.

  2. head. If we could bottle that up, we'd be billionaires!

  3. Thanks for tagging me. Seriously. I've been staring at the blank screen for an hour now. There is not enough coffee in the world today to get my brain to function. I am doing it right now...RIGHT NOW!

  4. Let me give you some advice...

    Crap! I can't think of anything. OH! I know.

    Never eat yellow snow.

    That one's important.

  5. I will find you my pretty! Thank you for the love....I'll drum up something.... just don't drink all three of those at once....

  6. During my journalist days I interviewed Birmingham, Alabama native Kate jackson aka Sabrina Duncan. She was very nice and had a wicked sense of humor. She told me Jacklyn Smith was one of her best friends and a good human being, So, you should know that.

    I'm named after Lance Alworth, the former WR for the Cowboys and Chargers.

  7. You did a great job with this. I got tagged a few weeks ago and at first groaned about it but then had a lot of fun writing it. And yes, I could totally see you as a pirate!

  8. I had a horrible bike accident when I was in first grade - both my knees and elbows and my entire face was jacked up. I had a black eye from hitting the handle bars and my mouth and nose were all scraped. I have a scar under my nose and inside my lower lip from the accident. I refused to go to school for aabout two weeks because I looked so bad. Love your answers. It's always fun to get to know you more.

  9. ooooh a fellow stress baker!
