You wanna know the truth?

Happy Thursday!

Today is another rendition of telling the truth. Since all of you are loving the interview questions I figured I’d continue to answer them truthfully…after all they’re coming out of my head and several of you have been asking what I’d say!!! So let’s go!

1. How do you come up with blog titles? Well this week I’ll be honest, I used the titles of movies and seasons. Oh yea, I’m that kind of genius.

2. You signed up to bring food for the local summer festival, what food item to you bring? This one is tough. I’m one to eat food, not bring it. I suppose chocolate chip cookies! I’ll eat a few warm ones before I leave though!

3. How many magnets sit on your fridge? What are your favorites? Easily thirty. All organized. Favorites: The fun sayings my little sister bought me for my birthday one year.

4. Have you ever made out at a movie theater? Yes… it was so memorable I remember the movie – The Terminal… and it was memorable because it was that awful!!!

5. What was the last thing you were grounded for? When I was seventeen and my dad caught me at the mall skipping. He was an electrician. I even knew he was going to be there. I was that idiot.

What would your answers be?

Nothing wrong with using movies for blog titles. And I've never made out in a movie - combination of too paranoid and I'm there to see the movie, not make out.

Mine would be:

1. How do you come up with blog titles?
Mine are just lame. Just parts of what the post will be or that day's "theme" (like Throwback Thursday or Debate This).

2. You signed up to bring food for the local summer festival, what food item to you bring?
I'm totally with the stopping by Walmart and grabbing something pre-made. Potato salad, cookies, bag of chips...trust me-->me NOT in the kitchen is a GOOD thing. LOL

3. How many magnets sit on your fridge? What are your favorites?
I have about ten. They're on the side and mostly just ones for local businesses. I'm weird about things on my fridge.

4. Have you ever made out at a movie theater?
Nope. I'm so lame. But I celebrated my 15th wedding anniversary yesterday, so we're doing something right. LOL

5. What was the last thing you were grounded for?
Skipped work by telling lies that my grandmother died (I know, I'm a jerk) so I could go to a party. Totally busted, and totally grounded. :(

LOVE these. What fun!

1. How do you come up with blog titles?
Usually something to grab people's attention when they see it in other bloggers blogroll. I am also prone to use movie quotes or plays on common sayings. Though I try to avoid puns these days.

2. You signed up to bring food for the local summer festival, what food item to you bring?
Hmmm. Fruit or veggies. Trying to avoid sweets as much as I can these days. Some something from my wife's garden.

3. How many magnets sit on your fridge? What are your favorites?
We have these high powered Geomags. They are a toy from FatBrainToys but they are powerful rare earth magnets. They will hold up a few sheets of "A" homeworks and tests.

4. Have you ever made out at a movie theater?
Of course. It was during "Showgirls". And yes the movie was terrible.

5. What was the last thing you were grounded for?
No idea. It had to be around 25 years ago to be honest.

Janet Johnson said...

So wait . . . was the movie that awful? Or the kissing? :)

Clarissa Draper said...

Great answers...here are some of mine.

1. How do you come up with blog titles? I've started using my name at the beginning of each one, I'm just that vain. Well, it's actually because I'm really unoriginal and simple when it comes to titles.

2. You signed up to bring food for the local summer festival, what food item to you bring? Most likely something I bought.

3. How many magnets sit on your fridge? My son likes magnets and litters ours fridge with them but they are mostly sea creatures.

4. Have you ever made out at a movie theater? No. But that may be the reason I don't like movies much...

5. What was the last thing you were grounded for? I can't honestly remember. That's how old I am...

Donna said...

Here's mine:

1)Seriously, I just wing it.

2) It would have to be brownies. Whether they made it there or not is a different story.

3)Way too many! My grandbaby plays with them. My fave would have to be the teddy bear from Greenville Memorial Children's Hospital.

4) Oh yeah....

5)The one and only time was when I threw a rock and it knocked my sister in the head...it was totally accidental. Yup still got grounded...for the rest of the day.

Jessica Bell said...

LOL. I pictured your Dad catching you skipping, as in hopping on one foot to the other, and I though, WHA? Then I realized what you meant. LOL

Kathryn Elliott said...

1. How do you come up with blog titles? Depends on my coffee intake, social rage or carpool duties.

2. You signed up to bring food for the local summer festival, what food item to you bring? I live in Connecticut, we order out.

3. How many magnets sit on your fridge? What are your favorites? 7 – My fave is a flower made by my son. It secures any and all priceless macaroni masterpieces.

4. Have you ever made out at a movie theater? Yep. My date smelled like Old Spice and Clearasil. Talk about mixed signals.

5. What was the last thing you were grounded for? Never grounded – but my father patented the Look of Utter Disappointment. (LUD) I was often on the receiving end in my teens.

Fun!

Becky Mahoney said...

Oooh, fun!

1. How do you come up with blog titles?
I go for the most obvious ones. They're like my manuscript titles in that way, really, haha.

2. You signed up to bring food for the local summer festival, what food item to you bring?
I love making little cucumber tea sandwiches with fresh dill. YUM.

3. How many magnets sit on your fridge? What are your favorites?
I just have my magnetic Hello Kitty memo pad stuck up there. For someone who remembers every preposition in alphabetical order but can't remember to pick up my freaking dry cleaning, it's very useful!

4. Have you ever made out at a movie theater?
I held hands with him. During Constantine. It was reaaaally awkward.

5. What was the last thing you were grounded for?
Never been grounded! My parents didn't believe in it. The last time I can remember my parents chewing me out was back in high school, when my dad chewed me out for downloading illegal mp3s.

Kristin Rae said...

You skipped school!! That's something I didn't do until college. I'm not much of a rebel. LOL.

1. How do you come up with blog titles? I try to think of something eye catching that would make me click on it.

2. You signed up to bring food for the local summer festival, what food item to you bring? Fruit salad!

3. How many magnets sit on your fridge? What are your favorites? Maybe 10-15? I try to find neat ones when we go on trips. I've got Italy, Alaska, Hawaii... I like them all!

4. Have you ever made out at a movie theater? I don't think so. I like watching the movies :)

5. What was the last thing you were grounded for? I don't think I got grounded much after jr. high... it was probably for something lame like refusing to empty the trash.

LTM said...

HILARIOUS!!! omg, I can't believe you've made out in a movie... But if it was that bad, I guess what other choice do you have? :D

I have tons of stuff on my fridge, too. But they're all meaningful to me... xoxo <3

E.R. King said...

LOL! I'm with you on the chocolate chip cookies!
I'll answer the last question. My father was the principal of my high school, so when I got caught skipping it was a big to-do. Fortunately, it didn't happen often because I was the principal's daughter. No one thought I'd be that ballsy!

Ranae Rose said...

Cute questions. :)

1. How do you come up with blog titles? I usually either go with something self-explanatory, but occasionally go with something that sounds vaguely naughty. People always look at those posts. LOL

2. You signed up to bring food for the local summer festival, what food item to you bring?

I'd also bring chcolate chip cookies! I'm a cookie baking expert, and good 'ol chocolate chip is my all time favorite. :)

3. How many magnets sit on your fridge?

Six. I'm very picky about magnets. I like to get cute ones on vacation as souveneirs. My fave is from a North Carolina aquarium, because it has really adorable cartoon sea creatures on it.

4. Have you ever made out at a movie theater?

Of course! That's like asking if I've ever been a teenager.

5. What was the last thing you were grounded for?

I can't remember. I got grounded a lot and it all sorta just blends together.

Sarah Pearson said...

Just rushing through to say hi. I've got real-life rubbish to sort out. It hurts my brain, so save me a cupcake :)

Abby said...

You are so funny. No, I have never made out in a theatre, which, lets face it, is just sad. I always love your questions. They are so fun.

Nicole Zoltack said...

I suck at coming up with blog titles.

I usually make a dessert - everyone raves about my brownies!

A ton of magnets. I have one that looks like an Oreo cookie.

Nope.

Huh... yeah. I was a perfect angel and never got grounded. *whistles innocently* What? What do you mean my horns are showing?
