Questions From Roots And Rings.
1. What’s your favorite color to paint your nails?
I never paint my nails. I am incapable of painting my right hand so as not to look like a 5 year old painted my nails for me. And although I LOVE the look of a good manicure, I rarely get one because I hate that it chips so quickly. My favorite is usually french manicure or some light pale pink or beige type color (because it doesn’t show chipping as much). However, I also occasionally love a nice dark purple or brown.
2. Do you like to sneeze?
Nope. But I do love it when my dog sneezes. SO CUTE. Except for when stuff sprays in my face because she is laying right next to my head. Not cute.
3. How often do you fill up your car with gas?
Well, I used to wait until the last possible minute because I HATE stopping for gas. However, I recently had my car die from lack of gas (luckily in the driveway to a gas station). There was no orange warning light or chugging like my old car. It just completely stopped moving without warning. Fearing something similar happening again, I now never let my car get below the 50 mile mark (because that’s when my car stops telling me how many miles I have left until empty and just says “Fuel Level Low.” I beg to differ, I don’t think 50 miles left is “low” but whatever Ford, you’re the boss ;-)).
4. Were you named after anyone?
I have the same middle name as my mom and Grandma. As for my first name, thanks for picking a top 10 name in Michelle, Mom, and forcing me to be Michelle P.(ee) for the rest of my unmarried life 😉
5. Have you made any good recipes lately?
Me? Recipes? Does peanut butter toast count?
6. What’s an easy money-saving tip that you use regularly?
Google around for coupon codes before buying stuff online.
7. Would you rather have a sore throat or an ear ache?
8. Do you have any scars? What are they from?
I have several on my knees from falling throughout my clumsy childhood, one on my leg from ironing a skirt naked and standing a little too close to the ironing board, one on my arm from when someone left an iron ON on a bed, and I jumped on that bed without concern for said iron, and one on my back from when I tried to hide under my brothers’ bunk beds (despite being told not to go under there) and caught my back with an exposed nail. Ouch. Oh, and some scars in my tailbone region from a surgery I had in college.
9. What are you “known for” in your circle of friends/family?
Being loud, funny, smart, a know-it-all (not so much anymore but big time throughout childhood), having a snort laugh, liking ugly colors, the one who is obsessed with chocolate cake… the list goes on.
10. How do you like to eat your pancakes?
NO BUTTER. BLEH. Ideally just with some syrup. And probably a side of bacon. And fluffy, but not too fluffy.
