Stop with the Christmas stuff already.

I've been visiting blogs this morning.
I have laundry to do and bathrooms to clean.
I think it is better to blog than to clean. (I'm sure that's a Golden Rule or something.)

As I was visiting blogland today I found two different blogs that had "Days Until Christmas" counters up!
Stop it will ya?
This is the first month I haven't seen snow.
I'm emotionally not strong enough to handle thinking about how many days until Christmas.

Well, speaking of Christmas sorta.
I was given an award from Alexes at One Cluttered Brain.
It's kinda like Christmas cuz it's all about Naughty or Nice.

I think you are supposed to determine if I'm NAUGHTY or NICE.
So I'll answer the required questions and I'm sure you'll agree that I'm as pure as the driven snow.

#1: What is the silliest prank you've ever played on someone?
Well, it could have been the one when I was in high school and I was at Shakey's pizza and there was a table of guys behind me and my friends and they were drinking beer. They got up to go to the bathroom and I unscrewed the big container of pepper flakes and dumped the entire thing in the guys mug. Then we took off without finishing our pizza, then I got a ticket for running a stop sign. OR it could have been the time I stuck an Alka-seltzer tablet in my uncle's mouth who was snoring. (He's never forgiven me 40 years later) Or it could have been the time I put an entire tube of KY under the door handle of the police officers car when they were hanging out in the ER one night shift. (I may have impulse control issues.)

#2: If you could go on a trip anywhere out of this country, where would it be?
Scotland. I love kilts and bagpipes. And I'd like to tromp the cemeteries and look up my peeps.

#3: Who played an influenctial role in your life?
My grandmother. Constant, stong testimony, non-judgemental, an angel. I miss her.

#4: Are you OK with your spouse being friends with an ex?
Well, he doesn't have an ex-wife so I'm assuming ex-girlfriend. Uh, he say say "hi". Then he can walk away and tell me how wonderful and beautiful I am and expound upon the many millions of reasons he's lucky to have me.

#5: Favorite candle scent?
Very few.
Smells give me horrible migraines so I'm careful.
lotions, perfumes, candles, hairspray...eek! Then I'm over the toilet worshipping the porcelain idols/
(Sometimes I hate going to church cause I end up next to someone that thinks it's enjoyable to taste their perfume.)
Yankee candle has a Christmas Wreath candle that I love. In fact I burned it last month when it snowed. (yes, last month)

#6: Next movie I'm excited about seeing.
Hmmmm, I can't think of one. I wish they would do another Jason Bourne movie, then I would be excited.

#7: You must have one word to be banned from the dictionary and no longer spoken or used. What is it?
Easy. It would be the four letter bomb word. I work in the ER with a female doc that must use that word a billion times a shift. I have threatened her with Tabasco sauce and even popped her on the mouth one time. HATE that word.

#8: Do you have a relative in jail?
Not any more.

#9: What crazy fads were popular when you were in high school?
Hash Jeans. I miss the bod that used to fit in those babies! I was hawt!

#10: Have you ever been mentioned in a newspaper or on TV?
Ya, an advertisement for me being new at a Beauty Salon and once in our local paper in the cooking section.

Wow, I didn't realize I was so boring!

Thanks Alexes! You are hilarious and I suggest that everyone head over there and check her out.
Now I get to pass this on to 5 other people!
Of course I'm going to pick on Wendy. I have to. It irritates her. I love doing that!
Next is Gigi, cuz I think there might be more to this Southern girl than meets the eye.
Serene is next. I need to see just how serene she really is!
Then it would be Lisa. I can't wait to see what she comes up with.
Kim, ya you! Spill it!

OK I've delayed long enough. The bathrooms are calling my name.

But before I sign off........there's 151 shopping days until Christmas.

HAHA! Did you accidentally hot publish?
i love you girl!

Scrappy Girl said...

Um are so clean and pure I couldn't even see your answer! lol

Kristen said...

Fun blog post! You are one of the LEAST boring people I know. Sure love ya! Merry!

Laura Lynn said...

Congrats on the award!

I agree: Stop it with the Christmas counter!
Scotland - would love to go!
Smells give me migraines too - cannot walk down the detergent aisle.
I want another Bourne movie too - just watched one again last night -love them, or him -can't decide.

The ER doc needs to be more professional. True professionals don't say that. Someone needs to tell her that. Trump hates fowl language...
I would add the words, "Uber" "Babymomma",
"babydaddy" and saying "huge" without pronouncing the H as being banned words.

Anyway, have a great day! I think you are pure nice!

Kristina P. said...

You and Adam can visit Scotland together. Since he loves kilts so much.

Barbaloot said...

I hate when people steamroll other holidays to get to Christmas!!

I'd love another Bourne movie, but I'd love to ban that word even more. Good call.

Julie Harward said...

The Christmas count down is bugging me too...please, just let me have summer a bit longer!
Funny answers and are such a hoot girl! :D

The American Homemaker said...

I'm not appreciating Christmas counters yet either! Maybe in like October...

and the F word is my least favorite too... I hate, hate, hate that word!

My ex's fave hospital prank (he worked as a medic for a fire dept and a hospital) was Lidocaine on someone's straw... He learned you never leave your drinks laying around. LOL

Anonymous said...

I am not ready to even think about Christmas so I am with you on stopping all the counters and talking about Christmas.

I enjoyed this a matter of fact I enjoy ALL your posts. Hugs

T said...

ACK! I don't want to think about Christmas yet... I'm not even ready for back to school... seriously!!!

and yes, you're as pure as the driven snow :)

LKP said...


driven snow! absoultely. =)

as for #6, you should be excited to see "Despicable Me." no joke. so cute. seth laughed loudest of EVERYONE in the theater the other night because it was so much fun. so, put that one on the list. something about steve carrell's russian accent...just fun!
(seth's been channeling his own faux-russian accent ever since. hee hee.)

One Cluttered Brain said...

151 days until Christmas??
NO frickin way!
Don't remind me.
Thanks for playing along!!
Hope you get those bathrooms to sparkle!

Cherie said...

I knew from the beginning you had a dark side (insert evil laughter here!).

OK I had to laugh because I just keep a permanent Christmas counter way at the bottom of my blog. It is there all year long but I don't think anyone notices it because who goes to the bottom of a blog right? Sooo I'm Guilty!
I do have to say that I went to Deseret Book and a craft store over the weekend and they were already full of Halloween Crap! I was like...seriously!!

Just Breathe said...

That was a fun read. Congratulations on the award. I think your NICE!

Kirsten said...

So here's the thing. Summer is my FAVORITE season and I'm relishing every hot day of it...but, the other day I was looking at blog backgrounds and saw some Autumn ones. Well, it actually kinda put me in the mood for all the pumpkin, cinnamon, and spice smells and foods! It could be too that I'm just pregnant and am already ready to have this baby so BRING IT ON Fall and Winter! Get here soon so I don't have to be prego anymore!!

tammy said...

Me = guilty! Your comment made me laugh. And since I grew up in Utah, I totally sympathize with the whole snow thing. You probably won't want to visit my blog from Oct - March since I tend to brag about my great weather a lot.

Your pranks cracked me up.

And I hate the F-bomb too.

Connie said...

Thanks for the reminder!
Tauna, you really do crack me up! Have you thought of taking Adderall to curb your impulsive behavior?

Happy Birthday to your Candice in the last post. My youngest just turned 19. Those unexpected pregnancies turn out pretty dang good!

Serene is my name, not my life! said...

Christmas? Snow??? Don't... I can't... *hyperventilating* NOT SNOW!!! AARRGGHHH!

Gosh, another award! *blush* No truly, I don't deserve it. Well, maybe a little. J/K :D

LOL! I have to say I would never have taken you for a prankster! Look at you livin' on the edge!

I'm not sure I want to write about this. I could never live up to the great and mighty Tauna!

gigi said...

Hey my sweet friend! Pray for me please, I ain't right. The heat down here has fried my brain and sucked the life out of me. I'm to B.U.S.Y for my taste and I can't think. I promise I'll do this in a few days when life has been restored to my dead body.
Love ya.

M-Cat said...

Note to self. Be careful about four letter bomb word. *snicker*

SHAKEY'S PIZZA???? I LOVED that place as a kid. Doesn't even exist anymore I don't think

Kazzy said...

Scotland has some real sass to it too. Those people are awesome!

See Mom Smile said...

Not any more? My fave comment. And I hate the thought of Christmas in July. Just like Back to School stuff in the stores right now makes me want to vomit.

Camille said...

Tauna, you are something else! I love your sass and wit! This was the most NOT BORING list I've ever seen on a blog. And you just can't make stuff like this up! :) You are a crack up!

Grandma Yellow Hair said...

How funny I love your answers. You bad girl you! I for some reason can just see you smiling while your doing your little pranks. lol
I have not seen any of the Christmas counters yet and hope not too.
Tooooooo soon for all that..
Loved my visit
Hope your doing well..

Nezzy said...

Congrats on your well deserved award. For some of us with a boatload of grandkiddos...Christmas never ends. Now girl....go shine up your halo...heeehehehe!

God bless and have a terrific day sweetie!!!!

Krista said...

You still are hot, Baby! Hey, don't send me a scalpel. i'm having evil thoughts. I'm with you with the church smells. I'd take some dirty diapers over some of those eye-watering, nostril hair singeing perfumes!

Valerie said...

Not boring! That was fun to read more about you. :)

Anonymous said...

This is such an enjoyable post. You have me laughing! So glad to have been sent your way by Gigi. Hope you enjoy the remaineder of the weekend.

I so understand your problem with fragrances. The worst for me is eucalyptus. Sometimes when a place like Michael's Craft stores get in a new shipment, I can smell it from the parking lot! ha

Yvonne said...

Why am I surprised--those pranks were something else--I just can't imagine you doing those things ; )

If you have a problem with scents, you need to move here--we have a scent-free Church building.

I may have to steal the questions--very cute.

Congrats on the award.
