Random 11...everybody's doing it!

So I was tagged by this gal. I remember email surveys, they were awesome. So this should be super awesome, because it's on blog. Be prepared readers, you may be tagged next! Muah ah ah ah ah.

So of course there are rules set by some random human in a dark room, so here they are:

The Rules:
  • Post these rules
  • You must post 11 random things about yourself
  • Answer the questions set for you in their post
  • Tag 11 people (can't be the person who tagged you)
  • Create 11 new questions for the people you tag
  • Go to their blog and tell them you’ve tagged them!

11 Random Facts about me:

1. I either do one or three punctuation marks. Never two or four. Uncontrolled amounts are unacceptable.
2. I have an extremely strong subconscious; the second I get out the door I remember the one important thing I've forgotten. Often, its keys. So I triple check before I leave that I at least have those.
3. I said at age 14/15 "I want to be married at 24." I was.
4. I "ran into" president Obama in Midtown during his initial campaign; his security kind of man handled me because I wasn't paying attention while walking...good story for dinner parties.
5. I served Andy Pettitte honey mustard. His family was nice.
6. I can't sleep with socks on, and my feet have to be out of the covers at all times.
7. I could lie to my parents as a kid, but my sister Mrs. Waite ALWAYS knew when I was lying.
8. My husband went to the Super Bowl last year with three close friends. They're the only people I know that have attended was the greatest one by the way.
9. I have an obsession with snow. I grew up loving it. The more the better...even in dirty snow NYC (Note three ellipses always)
10. I used to pop open the screen on my window to look at the stars from my roof. It wasn't really dangerous, it was peaceful.
11. I love mint chocolate chip ice cream with peanut butter topping. Friendly's does is right.

And now, to answer Shea's questions!
  • Do you have any tattoos? If so, what? If not, want any? What would it be?
  • I do not. I would possibly put a 26.2 or my husband's initials somewhere unseen, but I'm scared to DEATH of needles and a PANSY with pain!!!
  • What is your favorite birthday memory?
  • This year was pretty fabulous; getting flowers at work, a walk in the park with the Mr. and the puppy, a Tiffany marathon necklace, delectable good. Also, my 16th birthday was great; I got my permit, a garnet ring with mini diamonds, and had a girls lunch with my mom. Being one of six kids means limited one on one time ever.
  • Broken any bones or gotten stitches? If so, how?
  • I've broken five bones. I broke my leg at 7 months (I jumped off my dad's arm over his shoulder!), broke it again in kindergarten by falling on ice at recess. I broke my wrist at recess during a race on the rings (I was winning, that Martha wanted me beat!!!), then I broke it again at age 8 rollerblading. I broke my toe at age 20 while at work in a retail store...a door slammed open onto it. That hurt. A lot.
  • What song would you say best describes you? Why?
  • I like the song "Firework" by Katy Perry. I just let it all out like a firework!
  • What is your go-to candy?
  • York Peppermint Patty. Enough said.
  • What's your favorite job you've ever had?
  • Being a lifeguard. 30 minutes on, 30 minutes off. During those 30 minutes off you could swim laps, read, go to the snack bar for free beverages, or fraternize with the fun country club members. It was easy, I got a tan, read a lot and stayed fit with lap swimming.
  • When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?
  • Before age 14? A writer. Age 14 and beyond? A teacher who will write books one day. Working on that.
  • What is the first thing you would save in a fire?
  • Lambeau puppy...assuming Mr. Miller can save himself. Those are the only two things that I can't replace.
  • Where is your dream vacation spot?
  • I once saw the white sand beaches of Brazil on the Travel channel. Someday. Or maybe Italy: pasta and wine. Mmmm.
  • What is your vice?
  • Aforementioned wine. Literally one of the only "unhealthy" things I like.
  • Who was your childhood celebrity "crush"?
  • JTT and Taylor Hanson. I was so sad when Taylor got married young...
Now I have to tag people, so respond if it suits your fancy!

Here are my questions for you, all sports related because I need a theme:

1. If you could play one sport that you haven't already, what would it be?
2. What has been your most difficult sports/fitness accomplishment?
3. Did you ever play a team sport?
4. Favorite football team? If you don't like football, explain. (A good generic answer is "The Green Bay Packers")
5. What is your state's team sport that you would get behind, even if you're not a professional sports enthusiast?
6. What is your favorite summer Olympic event?
7. What is your favorite winter Olympic event?
8. What is the one sports clothing item you wish you had an unlimited number of?
9. You have your own sports team. What are your team colors and why!?
10. What do you think about curling?
11. What would be the name of a shoe named after you, since you're a superstar and all.

Running and Cross training my way because it's...
11 days until Cancun and Winter Polka Dot Bikini!!!
40 Days until the 13.1 NYC half marathon!!!
