I was tagged by Angi, so here I go!

2 names you go by:
-Momma (obviously)
-Loo. I gained this nickname back in Junior High, my friend Jennifer used to call me LoraLooooooo (she sort of sung it, guess you had to be there).

2 parts of your heritage:
-Mostly German from Mom and Dad, which is probably where my impatience and my like for beer came from.
-Much of my mother’s side fought in the civil war.

2 things that scare you:
-Dying before Madison has kids of her own. That’s a LONG ways away, considering she won’t be dating until she’s like 30. LOL
-Heights. I am terrified of open heights. I can get on an airplane, but don’t ask me to climb a ladder!

2 everyday essentials:
-Coffee. I am down to one cup every morning, but I can’t function without it. Seriously. I can’t even talk before half that cup is down.
-Smiles and kisses from Madison and Karl.

2 fave bands/artists:
This is so hard, I have so many. So, I’ll narrow it down to the two I’ve been playing in the car, who happen to be on my top ten list:
-Third Eye Blind
- Smashing Pumpkins

2 favorite songs:
-“Photograph” by Nickleback
-“All I Really Want” by Alanis Morrissette. My IPod brought that up yesterday in the shuffle, I forgot how much I love that song.

2 things you want in a relationship (other than true love):
-Growing old happily together.
-The ability to speak without saying a word.

2 favorite hobbies:
Holy crap. Hobbies? What are those? That’s one of those questions you see in all sorts of profiles, something you get asked when someone’s trying to get to know you, and in these meme thingies. Perhaps they’re telling me something. I think my attention span is too short to actually keep one of those up, because I’ve tried. Really!

2 things you want really badly:
-To be financially sound through retirement.
-A honeymoon.

2 places you want to go on vacation:
-New York City

2 things you want to do before you die:
-Tour Europe
-Plan Madison’s wedding (after she graduates college!)

2 ways in which you are a true girl:
-I have one hell of a horror movie scream. Anyone who’s been through a haunted house with me knows.
-Bugs FREAK me out!

2 things you are thinking about right now:
-The stomach flu is going around one of the lockup facilities I routinely visit. I don’t want to bring it home.
- Every morning when I sit here and drink coffee on the sofa, our cat Dallas sprawls out next to me and demands love. His purr is one of the best sounds.

2 stores you shop at:

2 people guaranteed to make you laugh:
-Karl (hubby) is one of the funniest people I know.
-My coworker Stew. We’re both SNL fans. It’s especially great on a really baaaaad day.

Hmmmm. I tag… Martin, Layla and Vavoom. :)

Lora, you didn't! ack I really don't like these things. I guess I'll have to do it. I do have to say that I probably won't pass it on (unless I let the commenters choose to continue it) and I never knew about the height and bug issues. I did figure you for a screamer but I really need to hear that someday hahaha.

Martin, I will give you a free pass since you are THE busiest person I know right now. I really thought you'd heard that scream at the Scream Park. :)

Bar Bar A said...

What a fun list! Did you and Karl have a honeymoon when you first got married? I kinda like tagged :) I'll just do one for Martin too and make it up as I go.

Fred said...

Great post. The best part? You didn't tag me. Whew!

Jas... said...

You could knock out two with one stone by going to Walmart or Target in Hawaii!

Okay, I'm a doofus.

Vavoom said...

Oh crap... I'm with Martin on these things. Can I pass my tag onto well woman? Pretty please with sugar on top? C'mon, I'll be your best friend...

Vavoom: Bah! You guys are no fun. I promise, no such tags in the future.
