Fun Meme Friday!

For the full list of participants, go here.
1. Where do you escape when you've had enough?
My bed, and to sleep. Sleeping makes everything better. It's true.

2. What shows are you watching this Fall?
Too many! I'm really loving Pan Am, Revenge and Ringer. Those are the new shows I'm watching. Plus I'm still watching Supernatural, The Big Bang Theory, etc. Plus the Walking Dead just started up again so I have to watch that too. Too many great shows!!! 

3. What was the longest road trip you've ever taken and where did you go?
I've driven from Massachusetts to Colorado three times. The first time when I was 14. My mom and I were moving there. There were like 7 of us in the truck and it was frickan' miserable. The second time it was just my mom and my grandmother and I wanted to shoot myself in the head. My grandmother and I aren't exactly pals. She wanted to listen to Patsy Cline and some other crap for the entire 2 day journey. One time she fell asleep and my mom put on Eminem for maybe two seconds before my grandmother was like "WHAT IS THIS CRAP?!" I'm not afraid to say that I told her to shut the hell up and go back to sleep. The third (and final!) time was when Craig (the hubby) and I drove there to pick up the dog before we moved to Fort Knox, Kenyucky (that's not a typo).  I was pregnant and fat and yet it wasn't as bad a trip as when I was with my evil grandmother. 

4. Do you plan on taking your kids to Disney World?
Heck yes!! I went when I was in the fifth grade. It's one of my few happy childhood memories. Although I did have to be rushed to the ER. But whatevs. The baby is only 1 so it'll be a while, but I can't wait.

5. What is something that people would be surprised to know about you?
I grew up in the hood. I'm from Lynn MA which is known for the rhyme "Lynn Lynn, the city of sin, you never come out the way you went in." It's not a great place to grow up but hey, it's home. My son will never live there though. My husband even hates visiting my family, although they live (mostly) in the "nice" part of town.

1. If you could travel in a time machine, would you go to the past or the future?
Well obviously, if I'm in a time machine, my life's dream of meeting the Doctor have come true. Hopefully it's number 9-11, preferably 10 (I lovez you David Tennant.). If this is true and I am finally flying around in the TARDIS (Time and Relative Dimension in Space for those who don't know), then I can go back to the beginning of time (maybe meet the master as an old man :-D) and then forward to the end of the world. It's my blog and I can do what I want. 

2. What was your favorite children's book?
I had this awesome hardcover book with gorgeous illustrations that had both The Secret Garden and A Little Princess in it. If I could find that again, my life would be complete. It was amazing. I got lost in it time and time again. 

3. If you were a superhero, what would your kryptonite be?
I always joke that old men are my kryptonite. I cannot see a sad old man walking down the street by himself without getting teary eyed. They're just the saddest things ever. I used to drive by this nursing home in Colorado, and the same old man would always be sitting at the window staring out at the road. To this day i can't think about it without balling. I don't know how this would be used against me, but it is my weakness. Otherwise I'd say my son. Anyone messes with my son and it's going to be on like Donkey Kong.

4. Hot or cold?
When I'm really hot, I say I'd rather be cold. When I'm really cold, I say I'd rather be hot. So I'm just a big whiner. 

What superhero is your alter ego?

I honestly don't have an answer to this one. I like mostly male superheros. Is there a female Thor? I could be her. Or Loki, he's pretty awesome. Here's my answer, I am Lindsey Winchester, the long lost Winchester sibling (from Supernatural). John got around so it is possible. :)

  1. LOL! All great choices, but Lindsey is my favorite. Of course I LOVE Supernatural.

    Thanks <3,

  2. Hopping through. I like the cold at first but then it gets tiring. Same with the heat. I like whining too :-)
