WWTK Wednesday (someone said this was the 8th week??)

Yikes, where does the time go?

I'm tired of being down and out and I need to get back into my usual routines and bring myself back up.  Of course my usual routines include my bloggy link ups and one of them would be We Want To Know Wednesday.  Hosted by some fine bloggy ladies; Impulsive AddictJanetteMamarazzi and Shawn.  Today's questions are brought to you by Janette.

{1}Everyone seems to have a quirky family situation-- what is something unique about your family dynamic? know I honestly can't think of anything.  I come from an extremely small family (and my mother never married so it's just one side) and there isn't really anything overly unique about us aside from our last name which only my mother, myself, an aunt and one of my cousins still carry.  I will say that I noticed at my uncle's services last Friday that the women of my family are all crazy short.  Somehow I missed that, not that I'm some kind of Amazon Queen, but I've got a good 3" on the next tallest woman in my family, lol

{2}What is the most stressful aspect to blogging (aside from the network going down)?

Making my blog worth reading.  There are a lot of things that I want to post about most of the time, and it's hard to decide what's worth writing about and what isn't.  I also have a hard time deciding on if I should post negative stuff or if I should share the more serious stuff, but I want the blog to be a direct reflection of me.  I just don't buy into the people who's blogs are all sunshine, daisies and glitter all the time.  Basically, I want people to come back and be as interested in what I've been doing as I am with them but I sometimes question how interesting a single, 25 year old, dieting, desk worker can be!  

{3}We all end up on a blog at some point in our day, but name your top 3 favorite websites you flock to daily (non blog)!

I'm a creature of habit and very rarely do I discover or take interest in new sites.  The top three sites I check everyday are;

  •  Gossip Rocks - a celebrity gossip site.  It's not just all celebs, it's news and other junk too, it's an enjoyable forum.
  • Hollywood Stock Exchange - don't ask me how I got into this.  I have an account with a friend and I basically go through and research box office predictions and reviews (I have several sites that I check daily for that so I left them out of this list) and then I allow my friend to do the buying and trading based on my knowledge.  I love movies and celebrities so this is a perfect way to waste time while at work, lol
  • Craigslist - I check Craigslist every day.  I check the jobs, I check the apartments and I check the crap for sale.  If I'm really bored I'll go through and read the missed connections because I think they're hysterical.  If you've never checked those for your area, you need to.
I know Facebook is probably on everyone's list, but I only ever check that on my phone, when I'm bored and when I'm doing my business on the potty in the morning (that's right, I said that).  Other than that, I can't be bothered.

{4}What’s your sign? Believe in it or not, does any part ring true to you?

I'm a Leo and I'm quick to say that most of what is considered a Leo trait I am not, but after looking at there are definitely some traits that fit me.  For example under strengths I do believe I'm humorous, have passion and generosity.  Under weaknesses I'm definitely lazy and stubborn.  Likes, the theater, being with friends, expensive things and bright colors...SO true.  Dislikes, being ignored and facing difficult reality, yes!  And my best environment is the sun...OBVIOUSLY.  So surprisingly yes, I think I match up to the Leo personality quite well.

{5}IceCream!! ICECREAM!! We all scream for icecream! Name your favorite flavor/brand!

Well if you read my blog at all you know it's soft serve twist with rainbow sprinkles.  I seriously only eat ice cream in the summer because it's the only time you can get soft serve in abundance around here.  Oh, and Coopers Cave has the best soft serve hands down...eff off Martha's and Rob and Debs.  You're way too busy/crowded for me.

Janette asked two bonus questions this week...
A. Name the blog you credit for linking up with us today?
What are you guys trying to figure out who's the most popular here??  lol  In all honesty I was reading all of the hostesses blogs before they started this link up, but if I hadn't ever stumbled up Mamarazzi then I wouldn't have stumbled on the other ones.  So I'll give her most of the credit.

B. Suggest a question you want to see in future WWTK’s
What is your first memory?
When was your first kiss?
What is your favorite home decoration?
What kind of cell phone do you carry?
Where is your favorite vacation spot?
What is your favorite candy?
What is your job?

I'll stop there, I'm scaring myself with my noseyness.

Click the button to link up and play along.  Don't forget to link back to all the hostess with the mostessess!  Enjoy your Wednesday!

I'm an ice cream fiend, I don't think I could choose just one! :)

Nadine Hightower said...

Good Questions!!

I try to be humorous. and most days I accomplish that. But there are times with I have to let it all hang out and blog about the messy stuff. So do it. You'll feel better. You'll find that there are others that feel the same way or are in the boat as you. You can get it off your chest and find support at the same time. Becuz life isn't always daiseys and glitter... it's snakes and dog poop!

I think the only thing I worry about writing is about my true feelings on religion b/c I converted and regret it now.. and how I feel about my inlaws b/c they read it.. so I have to be mindful of them stopping by-- but just be yourself. I love that about you. I was curious in my bonus question-- are we reaching other people other than our current circle of peeps who link up each week? ya know? i want someone to say that they came from your blog and give you props... :) I'm the shortest in my family.. interesting how we all shake out.

Impulsive Addict said...

Ok, so I've never heard of two of your websites. I need to check them out. I'm all about some Hollywood bizness!!! And now I want to check Craigs List for "missed connections". I'm sure that it will have me laughing! GREAT IDEA!

Ok...I'm LOVING your questions! I'm gonna right them down before I forget.

Thanks for linking up with us Miss Amber!

Amy said...

The missed connections are hilarious!! "The girl that smiled at me today at the gas station, give me a call."--- Do you know how many people I have called lately?????? JK

I am a Leo too! * Bloggie High Five*

Brittney said...

that ice cream looks yummy I am hungry haha!

Your extra questions sound great :)

I agree its hard to figure out if what you write is worth it but I feel its quality over quantity and Im gonna keep it real no matter what!

Connie Weiss said...

My policy on my to be me! All the time. It's worked out great!

Love that ice cream! Now I want some!

Vivienne @ the V Spot said...

Ditto what Connie just said! Post about whatever you want to post about. You can't write for other people or you'll stop writing. I feel like my blog is a multiple personality disorder online because it's a little of everything. Just like you aren't made up of only one thing, your blog shouldn't be either.

(I forgot about craigslist... I check that a lot too.)

Carol said...

I check craigslist ALL the time too!!

Brianne said...

I HEART soft serve ice cream! Thankfully we moved away from the last frozen yogurt shop. My hips were getting a little wide. :)

Rebecca said...

I know what you mean about trying to decide what is actually "ok" to post. I have a lot of stuff I'd like to write about, but then I'm like, "that's depressing!" I figure no one really wants to read about the sob story that is sometimes my life so I stick with the happy stuff. Sometimes I feel like I'm holding out on my readers though! But most of the time I feel like I'm doing them a favor :)

Brandy@YDK said...

you are very interesting to me. I do that too - question what i should post or not. then SO MUCH i could post but people i know read it. damn them.
