It’s funny how friendships work.  I’ve been fortunate to meet a lot of people in real life and online.  I have friends that I’ve remained close to since Jr. high school.  But when you spend as much time online as I do, your friendships change.  Writing and promoting this blog, I spend allll.daaay.looong online.  And because I spend all this time online, I met Cheryl.

Cheryl is the author of Beautiful Side of Hectic and she writes about her little Canadian family that is both adorable and hysterical.

I adore Cheryl!

We literally spend all day chatting with each other.  We will have facebook chat, google chat and MSN messenger all open…at the same time.  Then if we can’t find each other online, then we call on the phone or text.  Texting Cheryl cost me $30 bucks last month since she lives in Canada.  That sucks.  Luckily for us, my iPhone lets me use MSN and Facebook chat without charging extra.  Thank God for iPhone’s!

The reason I am telling you this is because Cheryl tagged me.  I don’t usually participate in this type of nonsense since honestly, I just don’t have time, and I really don’t feel I have creative answers for these kinds of things.  But, because it’s Cheryl, and I adore her, I will play along.

Besides, I’m in Arkansas right now and I needed to schedule some posts in advance…

If you were a doll, the accessories packaged with you would be:

Flip flops and sunglasses.

I have an irrational fear of:

Heights.  While I loved going to the Grand Canyon, I was literally sick to my stomach the entire time.  I would panic when Bob went out on the edges.  I think he did it on purpose just to screw with me.  And even on TV, if they show people looking out from somewhere high, I will get nauseous.  Watching Avatar…almost threw up.  It’s bad.

What would you do if you were stranded on an island with the person you hate most?

Well, I don’t really hate anyone (I don’t think).  There are a lot of people that annoy the heck out of me, but I don’t hate them.  Anyhow, hopefully there would be alcohol there so I would just drink.  Then it wouldn’t matter.

I find the thought of childbirth:

Amazing.  I would love to go back to school to become a Labor and Delivery Nurse.  How cool would that be??

My toenails are:

In bad need of a pedicure.

Who is your partner in crime?

In “real” life, nobody really.  I’m probably the most colorful of all my friends and all of them just tolerate me.  Cheryl, you my friend are my online partner in crime and I do believe that if we lived near each other, nothing would ever get done!

What was the last thing to make you cry?

I was talking to Crystal on the phone about surrogacy.  She asked about the moment when you “give” the baby to it’s parents and how that felt.  I teared up explaining to her that the moment you place this very loved and longed for child in their mothers arms is like no other.

What’s most confusing to you?

Confusing?  I’m never confused.  I know it all.

What is one thing you’ve learned about life?

It’s precious and nothing is ever guaranteed.

Have you ever been stuck in an elevator?


There you have it, Cheryl.  I hope you are happy.  I guess the rules of the game say I’m supposed to tag 10 more people now and send them some questions, but because I’m nice, I won’t torture anyone else.  You’re welcome.
