When was the last time you had a cavity? It's been about 5-6 years.
What is the heaviest item you lifted last? Lucas, that kid weighs a ton.
Have you ever been knocked unconscious? Almost but not quite.

If it were possible, would you want to know the day you were going to die? Yes, that way I can get everything out of the way before it happens.

Is love for real? Yup
If you could change your first name, what would you change it to? I use to want to because of what it means in Spanish (not the nicest) but it was also my mom's name so now I don it with pride.
What color do you think looks best on you? I've been told red.
Have you ever swallowed a non-food item by mistake? Probably, can't recall right now.
Have you ever saved someone’s life? No.
Has someone ever saved yours?
Yes, when I was six and had my tonsils taken out I hemorrhaged and need a blood transfusion so thank you to the neighbours that called for the ambulance, the doctors and the person who donated their blood.

Would you walk naked for a half mile down a public street for $100,000? I'm waaaay to self conscious to do that.

Would you kiss a member of the same sex for $100? Maybe.
Would you allow one of your little fingers to be cut off for $200,000? Nope.
Would you never blog again for $50,000?
I don't think so, it's been a real lifeline for me.
Would you pose nude in a magazine for $250,000? Probably not, again too self conscious.
Would you drink an entire bottle of hot sauce for $1,000? The $1,000 wouldn't be enough to make up for the suffering I'd go through afterwards.
Would you give up watching television for a year for $25,000? It would have to be a lot more than $25,000 for me to give up my favourite shows.

What is in your left pocket? No left pocket.

And here's the second one from Michelle.

I need to share 8 little know facts about myself so here it is.

1. I had braces as an adult and got teased for it like you wouldn't believe, even by people I didn't know.

2. As a result of a car accident I was in while in university I've have a crippling fear of getting behind the wheel of a car.

3. I have type O positive blood type.

4. I've killed almost every plant in my backyard

5. I love NIBS

6. I hope to one day be able to buy a plot of land and build my dream home on it

7. I was born in Barcelona, Spain and emigrated to Canada when I was 2.5

8. I don't swim, don't like the water and especially don't like putting my head under the water.

If you've had the patience to read both of these, TAG YOU'RE IT!!!

Andrew & Stephanie said...

Steffie B. said...

redmaryjanes said...

I got tagged for both of those too!Your answers are great.

Stacy said...

I have the only brown thumb in the family. I kill things my mother swears are unkillable. It is quite sad.

I've never had Nibs. They sounds good.

My brother lives in Spain. They LOVE it there. They have lived in France or Spain for the last six years.

Great lists!

I had the exact same tonsil experience as you did at the same age too...except the part about the neighbours calling the dad took me to the hospital instead ;-)

Mark & Michelle said...


I had no idea that you didn't like to swim.
