Fill in the Blanks Monday

20 Jun
1.   The last movie I saw was Resident Evil: After Life. I watched it Thursday night. I also VERY recently just saw Avatar. I’m VERY behind.
2.  I want to fit into all the jeans in my closet. Even the little ones!
3.  Surprises are are good for the most part. Don’t “scare” surprise me though. I’m skiddish and I swing when I get scared!
4.  The best accessory is a smile. Yeah, I said it. I have Chronic Bitchface, but I do know that I look good in a smile. After that, a simple bracelet.
5.  My favorite warm drink is tea. Hands down. Mint, Chai, Early Grey… gimme gimme gimme.
6.  My favorite cold drink is (are) tea, beer, and wine. I like my white wine chilled, red slightly above room temperature.
7.  Currently loving my bracelets from Flourish, the new 311 song, oreos, and The Airborne Toxic Event.

Since the weather is just about stifling here and warm everywhere else, this week’s theme is vacations!
1.   This weekend I’m going to Epcot! We’re doing the 6th (or 7th) annual Drinking Around the World and celebrating a few birthdays. 
2.  My last vacation was not really a vacation. We went to Disney and stayed in a hotel for the night instead of at Chris’s brother’s place. We go to Disney a lot anyway, but we were out of town for a few days and Chris took some time off work.
3.  My next vacation will be (hopefully) after graduation, if not before and I want to go back to Key West.
4.  My favorite way to relax is a glass of wine and a spankin’ new book. Or a glass of wine and a foot massage. Or a glass of wine and a movie. Or a glass of wine and a spankin’ new book at the beach. (See any patterns here?)
5.  When vacationing one should always take loads of pictures and an extra duffel bag for all the extra goodies one might find. 
6.  When vacationing one should never try so hard to stick to a schedule that all the fun is zapped out. Have a list of the things you want to see and do, prioritize “want to do the most” and “it’s ok if we don’t get to it” and just go from there! 
7.  The best part about a vacation is the first night away and the first night back home. The first night away you can truly let your hair down because “YEAH! You’re on vacation!” and the first night home because you can sleep in your own bed and you know you have clean towels and coffee.

1.   I love my sister  because I know that when there is no one else left in the world, she will always be there to answer the phone to listen to me cry about a boy, school or even just a really big bug.
2.  A time that mama knew best was when she said “guys like a girl who can drive a stick.” She meant drive a car with a manual transmission. My mother is not a good person, but she taught me how to “drive a stick.” haha
3.  My first kiss went a little like this It was kind of a sneak attack. Cory came over to use the phone at my house after school and then before he left he kissed me. I had no clue it was coming. He was so nervous because he thought I was going to slap him. I was in 9th grade, he was in 10th. I was pretty much a late bloomer I guess.
4.  My celebrity crush is Johnny Depp. I understand he is so crushed on that he probably can’t breathe right now, but a zillion women in the world can’t be wrong. The man is purty.
5.  My splurge of choice is clothes or vinyl toys.
6.  My biggest accomplishment is making it 8 years in the military. I’d say college, but I’m not done yet 😉
7.  My dance jam of choice is usually something silly. I like “Hong Kong Garden” by Siouxsie and the Banshees.

1.   If I could get away somewhere for the weekend I would go to Key West. I haven’t been in almost 10 years and I really need to make it back down there and I would bring Chris because we’ve been talking about it for forever.
2.  Something I often rant about is people or Chris doing things “wrong.” They might be completely fine and ok to everyone else, but I have OCD so some things have to be done my way.
3.  One item I need to have in my fridge at all time is cheese. I love cheese and even though I shouldn’t eat it I still do sometimes.
4.  My “life-saving” product is lip balm or gloss. I’m a lip-biter.
5.  A friend is someone who “gets you.” I like friends but I’m learning to attach myself to people, let alone more than one person at a time. Also I’m pretty introverted and like my space. I’m still looking for people who get me…
6.  If I could write my own blank it would be “As a kid, what was your favorite cartoon?” I loved My Little Pony.
7.  My favorite kind of art is is anything someone puts their heart into. If you don’t love your art and what you are doing…it’s gonna show! I love the refrigerator art my sister sends me from my nephew, but I also love paint and photography. I plan on mixing the 2 sometime.

1.   People always tell me I look like I’m mad or pissed off. I think this question is really who is my celebrity look-a-like though… So the guy at Best Buy said I look like Judy Garland…. I’ve even heard Katherine Heigl. I like to think I look like me.
2.  Friends don’t let friends date jerks or walk around with something in their teeth or wear really bad clothes. If your friend needs a wardrobe update, tell her! For that matter, if you think I need one tell me!
3.  A sunny day is perfect for going to Disney or the beach.
4.  My favorite accessory is my watch. I like to know exactly what time it is, not what time someone else tells me. I hate when people round up. That is not what I asked for!
5.  If I could afford it I would have a full wine rack.
6.  The cure for boredom is cats. Get those crazy critters wound up and be prepared to laugh!
7.  I am currently “in like” with a lot of different things. I’m not much of a “phase” person. I can’t really pick one thing in particular.

Since Blogger has been down, Lauren at The Little Things We Do has not been able to post her ‘fill in the blanks.’ So, this week the blanks were supplied courtesy of Courtney from My So Called Denver.

1. If  I had to use 3 words to describe why I am undoubtedly a  Jones they would be  smart, silly and creative.
2. Something that happened to me in life that initially seemed bad but turned out to be good was NOT getting back together with my high school sweetheart. Ask my sister, that was a rough time. Then I learned how much of a jerk he was. I was too upset that the “door” had closed to watch for the ones that opened. When I figured out how dumb I was being I found my forever.
3.  Something I inherited from my mom is  my legs. My nose and also my general lack of ass.
4.  Something I inherited from my dad is  my brains, love of tattoos and well, all the good stuff.
5.  My goal for this summer is to shed some of my winter hibernation weight and pass my summer classes!
6.  The best thing about this week is that summer classes are starting. The sooner they start, the sooner they will be over. Then just 2 more semesters to go!
7.  Something I couldn’t give up if I tried is  talking. I just can’t shut up.

Alright, I know this used to come on Wednesdays, but I’m regrouping. Hang on tight!
1.   What I love most about my home is that after a long day I can lock the doors and be alone…with Chris, the cats and the ferrets. I don’t have to let anyone else in that I don’t want to!
2.  I’m excited because, I have one more week before all the craziness of summer classes begins.
3.  My preferred method for blowing  off steam when I’m frustrated is slamming stuff until I find chocolate or (again) slamming the front door and taking a walk. It happens quite a bit, I have a short fuse.
4.  Currently I am craving a Caprese sandwich form Mazzaro’s.
5.  The thing I love most about my mom is that she is not part of my life.
6.  If I was going to write a book about my life, the title would be on the back, and you would read it back to front like manga. Haha how fun would that be!?
7.  If I were to eat one thing for the rest of eternity it would be either Caprese sandwiches form Mazzaro’s or Caprese salads from Earl of Sandwich.
