BYOC!!! Bring Your Own Crazy!!
It’s FRIDAY!!! That means it’s time for BYOC – Bring Your Own Crazy! We answer five little questions to get to know each other better and to give our blogging brains a break. Copy to your own blog and enjoy!!
1. What religion were you raised as a child, if any, and are you still a member of that faith today? Why or why not?
I was raised catholic. Every weekend at church, went to a catholic grade school, had a job during mass for a lot of years (Eucharistic minister, lector, an usher, and even an alter girl when I was little) I will probably go back if / when I have kids, because I do think it has its positives. Right now, I'm indifferent. I go on Christmas / Easter because its a "family tradition." I go more on the golden rule philosophy and think the world would be a lot better place if everybody just treated everybody else with respect.
2. Do you have an all time favorite candy or do you change favorites often?
I have a top three - My usual go to is a 3 musketeers... I had a 3 musketeers and a diet coke almost everyday during my neuroanatomy class in college. They are fantabulous! I'm a big fan of peanut butter, so reeses are my 2nd favorite. In a close third is pretty much anything with white chocolate. I know some of you don't feel like it is real chocolate.. but it is SOOOO much better than that bitter dark stuff :-)
4. Let’s just say you were a tattoo junkie and you were planning your next tat and it had to be words only. What words would you choose? A quote? Phrase? One word? Would you do it in English or a different language?
3 of my siblings have tattoos...I like them on some people. Others not so much, but to each their own. I would totally get one if I was dedicated to any one thing enough to have a permanent reminder of anything. I don't. I guess I've tossed around the way too common horoscope sign - only because I am so permanently stuck in the middle I can't dedicate myself to anything, and I'm a libra. Symbol, the scales. :-)
*Quick edit- because apparently I am wasting away and can't read the question :-) Words only would be super hard. I spent days trying to decide what to get engraved on my ipad... on my body... sheesh! something about moderation / can't we all just get along / etc. but obviously I'd find some deep, philosophical quote that summarizes that!
5. Repeat question: Summarize your week.
Well, I'm on day 3 of pre-op, so I might say one word "hungry!" I was thinking about it earlier, and I'm really trying to get a handle on what hungry is. I've been reading a fabulous book called Bandwagon and really trying to focus on learning what my body is telling me. Thats the point of this whole band thing. The author talks about finding the difference between physical hunger, head hunger, mouth hunger, and eating out of habit. I'm definitely more in mouth / head / habit hunger (probably a good combination of all of them) than physical hunger. I mean I'm sitting here, blogging, watching TV and I'm thinking I totally need to eat. But apparently I don't "need" it enough to go eat the 2 cups of raw veggies I'm allowed each day. I mentioned in my last post that I'm pretty much a toddler when it comes to my food variety. Without a yummy dip, they just taste icky! So, I keep drinking water and keep trying to stay busy. Here's hoping I'm not hard-headed and this eventually becomes routine.
