FMM: Have You Ever?

Friend Makin’ Mondays: Have You Ever?

1. Jumped out of an airplane?  No, but I might someday.
2. Lived alone?  Best time of my life - first housesitting for my grandparents for 3 months then having my own apartment.
3. Met a celebrity? No, unless you count before she got famous.
4. Said something to someone that you immediately regret saying? Of course, but thankfully not very often.
5. Had a manicure/pedicure? I used to all the time.  I even had acrylic nails for a long time.  I don't know about you, but I can't even remember the last time my toes didn't have nail polish on them - it's to the point where my toes look naked to me when I take the polish off to repaint them.
6.  Gotten a hickey?  I remember my first (Josh) and my last (Chris - recently too lol)
7. Owned a pet that was not a dog or a cat?  Hamsters and fish.
8. Been outside of your home country?  Of course.  A few places in the USA and many in the Caribbean.
9. Kissed your best friend? Not my best friend.  But in high school I kissed and dated several of my friends.
10. Eaten food that fell on the floor?  Always.
11. Met someone online? Many times.
12. Been on TV? When I was in grade 7 I was on a local trivia gameshow for schools.  We won!
13. Had braces?  Yes, by choice when I was younger.  I was unable to wear a retainer after though as I am one of the few people who spit retainers (or sometimes chuck them across the room) in her sleep.  And, during the day I attended 3 French classes and 1 English so I couldn't speak properly with it in.
14. Gone skinny dipping?  Many times - I was going to say sadly none with my husband because he hates the lake, but then I remembered the time we owned a pool ;).
15. Been to the opera? No.  I would love to go at least once to check it out.  I go to a lot of theatre productions though.
16. Been caught making out by a policeman?  No.
17. Sung in public? It's part of my job as a teacher.  I do it on an almost daily basis.
18. Handed out candy on Halloween? Last year was the first year I was able to do this.
19. Been snowed in? No.  I used to love snow days from school though - now I have to report to school as a teacher so no more snow days for me.
20. Fallen in front of other people? Of course.  Especially when on ice.
21. Cheated on a test? I've glanced at a few questions here and there to job my memory.
22. Regretted saying “I love you” to someone? Never.  I fall in love quickly as I see the good in most people.  I'm never afraid to have my heart broken.
23. Finished a meal in a restaurant and realized that you didn’t have your wallet? Totally.  Thankfully Chris had his.
24. Shot a gun? Definitely.  My dad was a C.O. with army and then air cadets.  We shot air rifles in the backyard a few times and I went to the range to shoot some handguns. 
25. Heard a song that was written for (or about) you? Not a song.  But a poem.  And once someone made me a mixed tape that had them acting as radio dj between songs.


  1. #3 I'm curious. Who did you know before they became famous?
    #19 Really you have to go to school even if it is cancelled?
    #22 I love your answer too.

  2. I feel to same way about toenail polish. I wear sandals 90% of the time in summer, so they're always painted. Right now they're metallic Barney purple, since I let my almost-15 year old choose the color. But they do look naked when not painted!

    Kudos to you for being a teacher! You all deserve much praise & applause (and a huge pay-raise!)

    Stopping in from FMM - hi!

  3. #3 Serena Ryder. She is an amazing singer and songwriter with many Canadian music awards to her name. We were in choir together in public school.
    #19 As I am a teacher I am required to report to my own school (or the closest school to me if weather prevents travelling) on snow days as the schools are not closed. Only the buses get cancelled in bad weather so some students still walk to school or parents drop them off. I've been known to spend 30 minutes walking up (and sliding down) an icy hill to go the one block to my closest school last year.
    #22 Thanks. Chris doesn't know this, but the first time I almost blurted out that I love him was when he bought me a computer bag and it surprised me because I really needed one. I didn't though, but only because I had already scared him off once when I told him I would marry him on our second date (our third was 3 months later because of that).
    #? toe polish - mine are hot pink right now

    Thanks for the kudos! I enjoy teaching, but it would be nice to get a pay raise this early in my career instead of a wage freeze. Can't wait to visit your blog Lisa.
