Do you ever take medication to help you fall asleep faster?Nope.

Has anyone told you a secret this week? Yep.

Have you ever given someone a hickey?Uh, *pushing toe of my shoe in the dirt and looking around* uh, er, last week, yes. *scroll back up three questions to the bow chinky bow wow music*

Who was the last person to call you? Uzz, my ex, to tell me when he's bringing Pickle back home.

Is sex before marriage wrong? According to the Bible, yes. But, personally, I think sex is a very important part of a marriage relationship and if you're not compatible there, the marriage will fail. So I sort of think that the right/wrong morals have changed there since the scriptures were written. I mean, for cripe's sakes, it says it is wrong to lay with an "unclean" woman (meaning a chick on the rag) and I really don't think that is a sin. Times have changed. *putting away soapbox*

Have you ever been to Six Flags?We had season passes every year till I got pregnant with Little Bit. Then, we missed a couple of years and then got them again two years ago. Didn't get one last year because I was working and didn't get them this year because of my mom's inability to get around as well since her stroke. But, we love that place.

Do you get along better with the same or opposite sex? Depends on what the issue is. Typically, I think I work better with men. However, I can bitch better with women.

Favorite lyrics? There are many. So many that it is a toss up. I really like Daughters by John Mayer, but I also love Don't Take the Girl by Tim McGraw and The Good Stuff by Kenny Chesney. I also like alot of Martina McBride songs. She has such meaningful lyrics. Music is so powerful to me. There are so many songs I could name, it is hard to pick even just a few. Live and Creed each have a few songs that remind me of my children. Some of these songs aren't necessarily "favorite" as in ones I really like, but ones that are very moving.

Name by the Goo Goo Dolls is a favorite:

Scars are souvenirs you never lose
The past is never far
Did you lose yourself somewhere out there
Did you get to be a star
And don't it make you sad to know that life
Is more than who we are
You grew up way too fast
And now there's nothing to believe
And reruns all become our history
A tired song keeps playing on a tired radio
And I won't tell no one your name
And I won't tell em your name
I think about you all the time
But I don't need the same
It's lonely where you are come back down
And I won't tell em your name

Not sure why this one hits me so hard, but I cry every time I hear it on the radio. Just so sad.

If you want to play along, let me know you did in the comment and I'll come check it out.

    I LOVE that song (Name). I just heard it last week on the radio for the first time in AGES and thought, gee, maybe I should look at buying one of their CDs.

    (because like you I am stuck in the 90s and have a CD player but no iPod...)

    P.S. I didn't make it to SPF last week so I'm stopping by to say HI!
