More about Me, Me, Me

I read this meme at Cowgirl’s place then at Miz B’s and Mo’a romig boyle’s. Its a treat to learn more about blogger buddies so I thought I’d do it too. I changed a couple of questions because really, wouldn’t you rather know what perfume I’m wearing than what I ate for breakfast? No? Oh well. skip that. (Others that have done this meme will notice that I changed the number of questions. 58 seemed to be such a weird number…I had to tidy it up to 50)
Also, I will be away this weekend, having my ‘girl’s weekend’ off with Nancy. However, I’ll will post the Mother’s Day fundraising post so make sure you come back on Sunday and chat with each other. I challenge you to try and get me to pay at least a couple hundred bucks. I’m sure you can do it if you really try. I’ll pay $1 per comment on Sunday.

So, more about me:

1. What time did you get up this morning? Which time? The 2 o’clock waking to give my coughing daughter some ventolin, or the 4 o’clock waking to soothe a nightmarish boy, or the 6 o’clock waking for work?
2. Diamonds or pearls? well, diamond is my birthstone and I have a particular fondness for sparkly things but I like pearls too. They are classy and I’m a classy dame. I’m not crazy about the human rights abuses that go along with the diamond mining industry so I tend to steer clear.
3. What was the last film you saw at the cinema? Ice Age 2
4. What is your favorite TV show? Don’t watch TV enough to have a favorite.

13. What characteristics do you despise? Tough question. If I think of some behaviour I despise it would be that of people who victimize those who are weaker than them like children, animals etc. How about those parents that sell their kids to brothels? Nice.
14. Favorite item of clothing? don’t really have favorites in the clothing department.
15. If you could go anywhere in the world on vacation, where would you go? Grasse (France) Home of the perfume industry.
16. Where would you want to retire? Whereever my heart is.

  1. Stacy says:

    You’ve GOT to let me know how that brazilian wax goes…I’m debating one myself! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. one word on the brazilian. Why?

  3. Tickersoid says:

    I just have to try that icecream.

  4. Kyahgirl says:

    Stacy- will do ๐Ÿ™‚

    GSE-you only live once, got try everything ๐Ÿ™‚ Remember last year on the fragrance board a bunch of girls were talking about it and several said they really liked it and wouldn’t go back…made me curious!

    Tickers-you won’t regret it. Very good ice cream!

  5. Brian says:

    I just read an article recently that said Brazilian wax jobs are all the rage, for men. I don’t think so. Thanks for all the info, have a great weekend.

  6. Cowgirl says:

    Waxing is something this Cowgirl can’t go without…loved learning cool little tidbits about you.

  7. Whinger says:

    I hate cilantro with a fiery, fiery passion, but am unsure about your tastes if you enjoy the Tiger ice cream. ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Well Dorky Applehead, I sure learned a whole heck of a lot about ya!!!

    Your friend Crusty Buger!

  9. Doug says:

    It is good to learn more about you. Suave as I am, by the way, I’d have guessed Freesia for you. Black Licorice and orange ice cream I’ve never heard of. What a great idea.

  10. The Phoenix says:

    Great answers.

    Best of luck with that Brazillian by the way.


  11. neva says:

    what a great meme! nice to learn so many nice tidbits in one convenient post! (seriously!)

    i’m with doug on the ice cream thing… never heard of it–of course, if i had, i’d never try it because as much as you hate cilantro? that’s how much i hate black licorice!

    what a career path! yee-owza! from waitress to analytical chemist to people leader? damn girl… you go!

    finally: never ever considered a brazilian wax job–after waxing my eyebrows and/or legs, i’m quite certain i wouldn’t find the experience pleasant… nevertheless, i hope it works out well for you!

    hope your daughter’s cough is better — and that your son sleeps well tonite. i’m thinkin’ someone as busy as you could use a good night’s sleep! thanks for the fun read! : D

  12. Miz BoheMia says:

    I LOVED learning so much about you! No licorice for you Neva? Oh no! My Danish blood has me addicted to licorice… ADDICTED I SAY!!! I don’t buy any anymore! They sell Danish licorice here in Spain and if Loverboy ever buys any he knows to hide the other packs because I will literally wolf it down in one day…

    I am the queen of Brazilian waxes! Have you ever had it done before? Sorry to say that the first time hurts like a bitch but I am too addicted to the hairless look and life to ever go back… the trick is to go right after your period as that is when the pain is less… with any waxing… and Neva… I wax my legs, brazilian, buttocks (just fuzz but it has to go), arms, armpits, mustache and eyebrows!!!! OUCH but then ooooh, so smooth! Me like!

    You are one fascinating mama Kyahgirl!!!

  13. Cowgirl says:

    Miz B sure is chocked full of useful information. I’ll have to rearrange my appointment and see if that is true about waxing…

    Hey how’s your nose, anyway? Feeling better?

  14. Kyahgirl says:

    Brian-I read that too, go on, give it a try ๐Ÿ™‚

    Cowgirl-see, another thing we have in common.

    whinger-Tiger is delish!

    Village Idiot-aka Crusty BURGER Brain. Not Crusty Buger. Geesh! I thought you were a member of the Brain Gene pool but it seems there was a mix-up at birth. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Doug/Dorky- hi, good guess on the flower. try the ice cream-you’ll like.

    Phoenix-thanks, I’m expecting to need a bit of anesthetic. wine/whine maybe?

    neva-thanks for the encouragement. waxing is something a person can get used to.

    Miz B-thanks for the tips, you are a woman of the world, full of good advice!

    Cowgirl-I’ll keep you posted. Thanks for asking about my nose. The right side is still numb and quite painful. Its taking a long time to heal.

  15. actonbell says:

    Cool meme, very interesting. Brazilian wax job? OUCH. I can’t stand the thought of that, but good luck, may it go quickly. I love black licorice and orange-flavored anything…I need to try that ice cream!
    Sadly, I know nothing about perfume, but several years ago, I got to tour the Fragonard factory–it was a short road trip from Cannes.(we were on a cruise, and had the good luck to actually know a French couple, who met us at the port and drove us around. Otherwise, hubby and I would’ve been way too ignorant to know what to do, other than go to the beach!)

    Happy Mother’s Day!

  16. Doug says:

    I hope this is the right place for Mother’s Day Comments.

  17. Doug says:

    On Mother’s Day We do Believe

  18. Doug says:

    That Charity starts at home.

  19. Doug says:

    With half the chocolate up our sleeve.

  20. Doug says:

    And flowers by the phone.

  21. kyahgirl says:

    well actually, its on mother’s day that you have to come back, but I’ll count these if you can’t make it.
    thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

  22. Sar says:

    Lays Sour Cream & Onion? I love you! like I needed any more reasons too. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I’ll be back for your Mother’s Day post. Hope you’re enjoying the weekend.

  24. tom909 says:

    Kyah, 50 things to know about you and as fascinating as they are, only one of them seems to be sticking in my mind.
    I just can’t believe your bedroom carpet is tan.

  25. Doug says:

    Oh, bother, Kyahgirl, I forgot. I’ll be back tomorrow.

    Tom-I don’t believe you.
