We Want To Know Wednesday

Welcome to We Want to Know Wednesdays Q&A!
Hosted by MamarazziQueso and Crazymama


This week's questions come from Mamarazzi....

{1} When was the last time you lost your temper?

Haha! Um, last night. I made chicken enchiladas last night and both kiddos totally threw screaming fits during dinner. "It looks yucky!", "I don't want to eat it!", and "Waaaaaaaaaaah!"  Ugh, it down right pissed me off. I try to not let it hurt my feelings but sometimes it just does. I gave myself a time-out and cooled down in my room. 

{2} What 3 words best describe you?

Funny - I'm not necessarily a comedian or anything but I enjoy all things funny.
Compassionate - I feel great compassion and love for my family and friends. Sometimes I wonder if I can have too much compassion.
Nerd - Yeah, I'll admit it. I'm a nerd and I'm finally able to be cool with that. I hated that "title" in school but I can embrace it now.

{3} What movie could you watch over and over again and never get tired of?

Oh man, I have a lot of them. It would actually have to be The Lord of The Rings trilogy. I totally LOVE those movies. I've had them put away for a while because they were scaring the kiddos. One day I'll be able to break them out again and  have a marathon.

{4} If you could do something dangerous, just once, with no risk, what would you do?

I'd like to say I'd go skydiving or bungee jumping. I'm a huge chicken and I don't know if I'd actually go through it. I know that when I have done things that get the adrenaline pumping, that I have always loved it ... afterward. Example: I really wanted to ride the blast-off ride at Lagoon in Utah. I was terrified and almost chickened out. The poor kid strapped in next to me must have thought I was a lunatic! It ended up be so fun! I was totally shaking when I got off the ride but I loved it!

{5} Which is more important intelligence or common sense?

I believe that there cannot be true intelligence without common sense. So, common sense is definitely the start to gaining great intelligence.

I love roller coaster. I have no fear of them at all. But I scream. It just comes out. I've tried not to scream, I can't do it. It's just me.
Once when I was ridin' the Wildfire at Silver Dollar City, I scream to my heart's content! And when we got back to the finish, there wasn't many people so they said we could go again. I would have I just love it!! But the little girl next to me, her mother said, "do you wanna go again?" And she thumbed at me, "not if she goes again!"

I got off.

I'm not gonna ruin it for someone else.

I love that you gave yourself a time out. I think I need to try that sometime. I'd like to watch the Lord of the Rings trilogy again too. I've only seen it once, but I remember really liking it.

I love nerds. i have to, i breed them. i'm darn nerdy myself.

my kids do that too. when it's chicken enchiladas though i am glad, I LOVE THOSE! more for me! sadly my kids love them and eat my leftovers while i'm still gone doing afternoon pick up. that is super annoying.

So frustrating to me when my kids judge dinner before they even taste it. Uggghhh!

Love your describe words. I took the easy route with mine. LOL.

I have never seen Lord of the Rings. Can we still be friends?

I love your blog. I hope you don't mind - I loved your idea of the people descriptions on the side and *love* copied it :)

My kids used to give us a hard time about trying foods. They are now 7 and 5 and the 7 year old, who used to be fairly picky, will try everything at least once. There is hope! :)
