This is my Brain on Drugs NaBloPoMo

I'm into day 24 of NaBloPoMo and obviously I have been really reaching. Thanks for humoring me and leaving comments. Especially my favorite cheerleader Ron at Ducks Mahal.

Fellow Michiganer, The Hotfessional, also a participant in NaBloPoMo, understands the pains of blog fodder during this month. I owe you a beer or ten for tagging me with this meme to get through one more day.

(X) Been to Canada - Many times. They can keep the Canadian goose poop though.

(X) Been to Mexico - Yes. I've posted about hitch-hiking to Mexico right out of high school and living/traveling there for the next year. Good mota and 'schrums.

(X) Been to Florida - Couple vacations and the whole Mouse experience.

(X) Been on a plane - Zee plane Zee plane! Sure, airlines, private jets, small prop, and one orange crate powered by a wind-up rubber band when I lived in Mexico. Scary flight, happy for the mota!

(X) Been lost - My whole life!

(X) Been on the opposite side of the country - LA, but I think that was a different world.

(X) Swam in the ocean - See Mexico and Florida question.

( ) Cried yourself to sleep - Not that I can remember.

(X ) Played cops and robbers - I play those cops every time I get pulled over ::smirk::

(X) Played with a Tonka Truck - Yeah, strange, but you know how men like to name their penis.

( ) Recently colored with crayons - No, I love the smell of them though.

( ) Sang karaoke - No, Nadda, Ut-Uh, Not Gonna Happen ... I hate to make people's ears bleed.

( ) Paid for a meal with only coins - No, but I've used a debit card.

(X) Done something you told yourself you wouldn’t? - Probably everyday *gasp*

(X) Made prank phone calls - Just leave your number, I'll answer this privately.

(X) Caught a snowflake on your tongue - Native Michiganian. You can't open your mouth in the winter without doing this. (This was Hot's perfect answer, I concur)

(X) Danced in the rain - Sure have. There may even have been some nakedness involved too.

( ) Written a letter to Santa Claus - No. Maybe helped my kids when they were small.

(X) Been kissed under the mistletoe - I dated a guy with a mistletoe belt buckle. (Dork)

(X) Watched the sunrise with someone you care about - Back to Mexico and then again, my early bar days with my cousin Cyndi ... we watched many a sun come up on our drives back home from our nights out =)

(X) Blown bubbles - Does in the bathtub count?

(X) Made a bonfire on the beach. Mexico ::: All these Mexico answers, I must have had a blast there :::

(X) Crashed a party - One, to get MY KID!

(X) Crashed a wedding - Yes, first time by accident, then a couple just for fun.

( ) Crashed a funeral - No, but I always liked the movie Harold and Maude.

(X) Gone ice-skating - Yes. That Michiganian thing again. Although I hate the cold. (again Hot, I concur)

Robin said...

Oh jeez, I was drinking tea when I got to the Tonka Truck one. Not nice Nancy, not nice LOL.

San said...

I think you are doing great with NaBloPoMo. Keep on're almost through. It will be interesting to see how many (or how few) posts you have in December. LOL

Sherry said...

Oh crap, and here I had a gift bag all ready to mail with some of our abundance of goose poop!!!

Michael said...

Tonka trunk?!? I'm afraid to ask.

Beth said...

Linda said...

willam said...

Casdok said...

Yes you are doing well! Not long to go now!

Joan said...

We have a lot in common. I'm too lazy to answer the questions but I enjoyed reading about you.

detroit dog said...

1. I adore the name Appollonia - name of Michael's first wife in Sicily in The Godfather.
2. You must try a red Washington Apple martini. Not quite as many anti-oxidants as pomegranate, but quite good.
3. I have to run and tell the husband about the mistletoe belt bucket. (Perhaps we need to have a post about people we've dated and lived to tell.)

BTW, I very much admire that you hitched to Mexico and lived there for a year.

detroit dog said...

OK, I just told my husband about the guy you dated with the mistletoe belt buckle. He wants to know if you ruined Christmas?

Nancy said...

Hot: Fastest? or most desperate for fodder? lol

Robin, Michael, Willam: Maybe it was "big rig" wishful thinking =)

San, Linda, Cas: I may have to end the month by posting song lyrics !

Sherry: Darn, I spoiled your surprise.

Beth: It WAS fun!

Joan: yeah, when I read some of your posts I think the same ... we are like minded on a few things.

DDog: Although it was in jest, I think the belt buckle was a deal killer on any more dates, lol
