50 things meme

3. Do you own a gun? no way. i'm scared of guns!

4. Have you had a mental disorder? i think if i had, i'd still have it. those kinds of things don't really go away...i'm rather certain that i have healthy ego function. do you like my big psych 101 words?

5. Why is a raven like a writing desk? both start with the 'r' sound.

6. What do you think of hot dogs? they're awesome with just mustard and relish, and a cheap/fast way to feed the family when we've got 8 places to go at once. and an absolutely essential part of a baseball game.

7. What's your favorite Christmas song? i love to listen to Handel's Messiah at christmas time, but i also like o little town of bethlehem.

11. Do you have a boyfriend/girlfriend? my husband is my boyfriend and best friend. and i do not have an "on the side ho."

25. Least favorite place to be? the doctor's office, alone with a two year old and a three month old. emotionally difficult b/c of the shots for the baby, and trying to convince the two year old that he won't get stuck this time around. and physically difficult carrying the two kids and all the crap that goes with them.

34. What did you fear was going to get you at night as a child? i used to have this dream that a giant lived down the street, and he would come out and grab me. i didn't like sleeping with the closet door open - who knows what evil stuff comes out of there.
