All About Me-me

This week's TT is part of a 2 part Meme series that takes one of the questionairs and has you give up lots of info about yourself.

While I really do want everyone in the whole wide world to know what I am wearing right now (no really, I do.), I usually don't like these. However, as revealed previously, when it comes to my friends, I'm a bit of a push-over. So for the next two weeks I will tell you more than you could possibly want to know about my favorite subject: me. *snark*

Other people who are doing/have done this: Liz, Catherine, Morgan le Fey, Eden, Kat

1) Three screen names that you’ve had:
I refuse to answer this question on the grounds that I would be exposing my other, less appropriate internet personalities to public scrutiny.

2) Three things you like about yourself:
Golly. Three? I have to stop at three? Sheesh. *scratches head*
Okay, I got one . . . er . . . three: I laugh easy, loud and often.

3) Three things you don’t like about yourself:
Being perfect is annoying sometimes. *shrugs* What?

4) Three parts of your heritage:
100% Smartass. Really, it's hereditary - I swear!

5) Three things that scare you:
Women who let their children run through the Starbucks parking lot without holding their hand. I almost saw an adorable four-year old get flattened by an Audi this morning. I wanted to get out of my car and smack that woman - not the one driving the Audi - the mother. Srsly.

Oh, and books with flimsy plots. They really do scare me. I cringe, just waiting for them crumble to ash in my hands - which they should. And umm . . . failure. I'm petrified by failure. *shudders*

6) Three of your everyday essentials:
Starbucks + iPod + Laptop = Heaven

7) Three things you are wearing right now:
Two shoes and one sock. Am I wearing another sock, or did I just answer the question verbatim?
The world will never know . . .

8) Three of your favorite songs:
My tastes are too varied to pick a favorite. I'm not being difficult - it's the truth. *sigh* Alright, I might as well reveal *something* . . . 'The Bare Necessities' from The Jungle Book basically plays on a loop in the back of my head. I'm convinced all the answers to life are hidden in that song.

9) Three things you want in a relationship:
Me, another person, and a bottle of wine. What else do you need? *grin*

10) Two truths and a lie:
I never lie.
I eat whole lemons - straight up, no chaser.
I can talk to my cats.

11) Three things you can’t live without:
The usual . . . oxygen, water, internet.

12) Three places you want to go on vacation:
Iceland, Australia, UK. I have badgered friends on two continents into putting me up already. Any takers in Iceland? Anyone? I don't eat much . . .

13) Three things you just can’t do:
I can't believe I just made you read all of that.
I can't believe I'm going to make you suffer through it again next week.
And I can't believe you're STILL reading. Srsly. Don't you have anything better to do?

Tune in next week for more horrendously interesting facts about *me*, which I will attempt to answer only with links and pictures (just because) . . . or face the wrath of the Meme Gods! Muhahahah!

Kathleen Oxley said...

Ha! Excellent job, and we really appreciate you making an exception for us!! *hugs*

I agree with you on # 6, 9 & 11. I can't argue with #1 at all. I might argue with #3... *evil grin*

Looking forward to next week.
Happy TT!

Dana Belfry said...

I'm totally with you on the kids in the starbucks parking lot thing! *shudder*

Kaige said...

My kids get so annoyed when I make them walk with me in parking lots. They're 4th and 5th grade but they're still too short to be seen through some back windows.

Great TT, Gwen. I loved the 100% smartass comment. heheh... no.. I don't know anyone like that either. *halo*

Oh? And the only thing better to do right now is sleep... and since this is the last comment for the night, I think I shall!

Shelley Munro said...

Ah, yes. #6 resonates with me!

Gina Ardito said...

And the mystery that is Gwen continues...

I LOVE Bare Necessities (I Wanna Be Like You from the same movie.) Yes, they're on my ipod.

Terrific peek into Gwen's mind.

Adelle said...

Fun List. I feel like I've reached out and touched someone. lol Happy T13!

Ms Menozzi said...

I liked this list - and I might have to nick it for myself, sometime. ;)

Interesting - and I agree with you on the parking lot thing. Some people can't learn until it's too late.


~Liz~ said...

For some reason, when I read this the scene from Mary Poppins popped into my head with you in it.

"Gwen Mitchell - perfectly, perfect in every way."

I completely agree!

Great list!

Brenda ND said...

I like your three things you can't live without.

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

Very nicely done. I usually let the band handle those for me... I'm boring as hell.

Btw, I'd have smacked the mom, too. My kids know the rules: stay beside me if you won't hold my hand anymore. They do.

I guess having a friend who lost a child in that sort of accident makes you more aware.

Jennifer McKenzie said...

Buhhahahahahahaw!!!! You're killin' me Gwen.
Srsly, I'm going to TAG you every chance I get now. LOL.

Alice Audrey said...

I love the way you pulled three out of one on #2, especially with something I like to see in the people around me. If we ever get to together at a convention, I'll have to see if I can make you laugh until you can't stand.

Darla said...

Oh, thanks so much. Now The Bare Necessities is going through my head and I can't make it stop. Oh, well. At least it drowns out the voices.

A. Catherine Noon said...

La la la... Bare necessities... la la la... of life...

Huh? Oh. Great list, Gwennie! La la la...

Seriously, you crack me up! *hugs*

Tempest Knight said...

LOL @ #10! Happy T13!

Unhinged said...

You're so witty, Gwenny Girl. I'm glad you decided to let me sit beside you!

Happy TT ... but TGIF, too!

Paige Tyler said...

LOL! Great list!


My TT is at

Chloe Devlin said...

Great list and meme. I love seeing how people answer stuff like this.

And I'm with you on the kids in parking lots.


Fey said...

*snortgiggles* excellent TT, very amusing and very you *huggles*

Tawny Taylor said...

Nodding at 11. Yep. That's me too.

Gwen said...

Thanks for putting up with it, I tell ya, GINA - I had a *different* song stuck in my head all day. *shooobeeedooobeedoo!* LOL.

Susan - that's horrible. *shakes head*

Alice - I hope you do! Gwengigglefits are infamous. ;) Just promise you'll stop before I wet myself - that would be horridly embarrassing!

Happy TT everyone!


Debbie Mumford said...

You're an ambitious TT'er. Wow!

Great job!

Stephanie said...

9) Three things you want in a relationship:
Me, another person, and a bottle of wine. What else do you need? *grin*

Great post. It's always nice to know more about one's fellow bloggers.
