I’ve been tagged by SINGLEWRITERMOMRANTS, to answer a list of questions kind of like the slam books you filled out in high school. Scanning the questions made me smile and I got pretty excited about filling it out.
SINGLEWRITERMOMRANTS is one of my new favorite blogs. I love her blog. She has a fantastic sense of humor and I often find myself relating to her on about a million different levels.
So get comfy, sit back and enjoy as I answer questions about my favorite person, ME!
WERE YOU NAMED AFTER SOMEONE?
My name was supposed to be Thea (pronounced Tay-Uh) Raylene after my mother’s two best friends from high school but after I was born, before the birth certificate was signed, my grandmother managed to convince my mother no one would spell Thea correctly so she named me Teri. The irony is that no one spells my name correctly still. I don’t know if the name meant something to her or not.
IF YOU HAVE CHILDREN, HOW MANY DO YOU HAVE?
I have one boy who is now an adult. One child for a single mom is more than enough.
YOUR WORST INJURY?
My appendix burst when I was twenty-three and almost killed me because I didn’t go to the hospital until the next day. I thought I had food poisoning from sushi I had eaten that day. I was in ICU for a week and the hospital for a total of ten days.
DO YOU HAVE A SPECIAL TALENT?
Umm… I am full of random and seemingly useless knowledge. I can also remember large sequences of numbers.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE THING TO BAKE?
I love to go online and find cookie and cake recipes all the time. The problem with that is I never make the same thing more than once because I never bookmark the recipes. I also make some mean enchiladas.
FAVORITE FAST FOOD?
I am going to sound like a pretentious ass but I try not to eat fast food. It is absolutely no good for me. But when I have had too much to drink I crave Jack-in-the-Crack (Jack-in-the-Box) tacos.
WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP?
I really don’t know if I would. I am terrified of heights but I actually think if I were going to do it I would be more inclined to do it now. Would I jump out of a plane? Fuck no!
WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE?
I admit I am a vapid asshole and that is the best response you’ll get.
WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED?
I cried while I was watching Beasts of the Southern Wild. I was beyond wasted and cried and cried while watched it. It would have made me cry anyway but in my drunken stupor I just sobbed.
ANY CURRENT WORRIES?
I really don’t have any serious concerns. I just got a call about chaperoning my niece’s senior trip to Europe and I have never been. All I have to do is get a passport and save spending money. Other than that I can honestly say I don’t have any worries.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE BOOK?
I love A Brave New World. I really do and it never ceases to relevant. The last book I read that I hated… The Girl She Used to Be. The further I got I began to think the two main characters really won’t going to fuck and became increasingly pissed off. The end had me wanting to chuck the book at the girl who recommended it. I am reading the sequel now.
WHAT SONG DO YOU WANT PLAYED AT YOUR FUNERAL?
I once told one of my closest friends I wanted to have a goldfish funeral. I was only half kidding. The idea of my nearest and dearest standing in and around a toilet attempting flush my ashes down a toilet only to have the toilet back up amuses the shit out of me. Then of course someone would have to explain the whole situation to the plumber. And I am fully aware I didn’t list a song.
WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT YOURSELF?
I love myself but I can be pretty judgmental on occasion. I do a much better job but I may still need a douche jar.
NAME SOMETHING YOU’VE DONE THAT YOU NEVER THOUGHT YOU’D DO
Three years ago I made a list about three pages long of things I wanted to work on within myself. During my transformation I lost over sixty pounds, completely changed my lifestyle and started blogging.
FAVORITE FUN THINGS TO DO
I love, love, love to shop. Orgasms. I love to get dressed up for no reason. Orgasms. I love Disney World. Orgasms. I love waking up the morning after a new blog post and read all my readers’ comments and… Orgasms.
ANY PET PEEVES?
I have so many pet peeves and I have documented them in many other posts. The answer would be a whole blog post of its own. I guess my biggest pet peeve is people who don’t assume accountability for themselves.
And now I am going to tag some blogger’s to answer the questions themselves.
