Have you ever?

Right, it’s time for me to share more of my deepest darkest secrets with you. I got this from Undr, and also from Linda.... once upon a time. It's been sitting in my Drafts for ages. Here goes.

Have you ever:

Smoked a cigarette
Yes, still do, far too many. My new year’s resolution for 2006 is no longer “Quit Smoking” but “Quit beating myself up for smoking too much”.
Crashed a friend's car
No, just my mom’s and my own. It sucks.

Been in love
Yes… as a matter of fact I’ve been in love with the same man for almost eleven years!!!
No. I almost stole a sweet when I was about 4 or 5 and the guilt is still with me.

Been in a fist fight
Does bitch-slapping count?
Snuck out of your parent's house
Not that I can remember. I was a reasonably good girl. Well, I like to think so, anyway.

Gone on a blind date
Yes. It was a disaster. Then I went out with him a second time (why????!) and ended up leaving the party with his friend. Very uncool, I know. I could be a real bitch when I was younger.

Skipped school
Once. It wasn’t even a real school day, it was one of those sports days. My mom found out (6th sense?) and confronted me but I felt so guilty about it she decided I was punishing myself enough on her behalf.

Been on a plane
Many, many times. I like to fly. It’s waiting in airports that I hate. Although airports are great for people-watching, one of my favourite pastimes. But I digress. Er, what was the question again?
Eaten sushi
No. It makes my hair stand on end just thinking about it!

Been moshing at a concert
No, but I’d like to.
Had a tea party
Hm, can’t remember. Possibly. Does serving tea for visiting relatives count? No? Well then I think the answer is no. I’m a coffee-drinker.

Fallen asleep at work or school
No. I’ve fallen asleep on the back of the motorbike a few times though.

Slept beneath the stars
Yes. Well… maybe in a tent, but to me it’s just as good.

Liked the way you looked at least at one point in time
Yes. I have a love-hate relationship with mirrors.

Played cops and robbers
Hasn’t everyone?
Sung Karaoke

I sang “California Dreaming” while I was on holiday in Crete.
Been kissed under the misletoe
A few times – Hubby is a total romantic!

Laughed so hard you pee your pants
Not yet, but it’s bound to happen sometime as I get older. I laugh a LOT!

I think that's enough sharing for one day, don't you? Gotta maintain some mystery about me... Feel free to tag yourselves. Go on - you know you want to ;-)

PS For Linda, 'cos I said I would, and for those of you who enjoy a bit of light reading occasionally, I've posted another short story on terristories.

I can't believe you haven't moshed! A rock chick like you!! ;-)

I like this meme. I might get around to doing it too sometime.

mysfit said...

you look lovely and happy on your wedding - which is exactly right - it's kinda weird this being my first intro to you and now i know so much :)

- i'm pretty sure i wandered here from Livewire's site

anne said...

What do you mean you never had sushi?? Sashimi? Maki? No??
(you do look lovely on those pictures. The four of you.)

Lori said...

You bitch slapped someone I bet that is one helluva good story.

Terri said...

Del, I know, hard to believe isn't it? I used to do a little head-banging but my neck can't take the punishment anymore. Getting old is a real pain in the neck, eh?

Mysfit, welcome. Stick around - there's plenty more, hehe!

Anne, I probably will at some point. After all, I love smoked salmon and that's like raw fish, isn't it?
(And thank you :-))

Lori, ahem yes well it was a long long time ago. Maybe one day I'll tell y'all about it. Maybe.

beadinggalinMS said...

played cops and robbers, was you the cop or robber?? haha did it involve handcuffs?? ;)

Oh I am on to read your story. Thanks Terri!!!
I left you something on my blog today. Enjoy G.C.! ;)

Underachiever said...

Great Job, Terri, as always!


LiVEwiRe said...

Terri - Somehow I can imagine you really letting loose in a mosh pit! Blonde hair flying everywhere, limbs flailing, and pushing people around. Sounds like a good time, no? =)

BUDDESS said...

Looks like I should have stayed right here and not gone on holiday. I missed your blog!!!! I hope you and the family have a very successful 2006.

ChittyChittyBangBang! said...

Hey Terri, I just want to wish you well for 2006! Knock 'em out of the ballpark, kid!
"You never snuck out of your parent's house?" Damn, you were a good girl!!

Terri said...

Beaddinggal: No comment. But thanx for the pic :-D

Undr: Thanks for the compliment, Undr, as always ;-)

LiVEwIRe: It does sound like something I'd enjoy, lol! U wanna join me?

Buddess: Yay! She's back!! Don't ever go on holiday again!

Chitty: Well howdy stranger! And I believe what I said was... "that I can remember"... cut a girl some slack. My Mom reads this blog :-O

jason evans said...

Terri, I'm catching up on housekeeping and adding you to my links. I'd love one in return! (Darn subtle, aren't I?) =D

Lori said...

Whats a girl to do to get a good bitch slap story?

Terri said...

Jason: Like a bull in a china shop :-)
Consider it done - 'tis my pleasure.

Lori: I don't want to go into details cos it was a long, long time ago... lets just say I was 16, and she messed around with my man when she shouldn't have. It was one of the few times in my life when I completely lost my temper and it's not a pretty sight, let me tell you! Especially at lunch-time in the school cafeteria. Yes, I felt better afterwards but I hope I never get that angry again; it's a nasty, scary feeling, let me tell you.
