Now u know me....

Hey Dolls, hope you're all enjoying this Easter long weekend.  I've got a whole bunch of church, cooking, family dinners, egg colouring (and hunting) and chocolate eating coming my way.   
This week has been all things Easter but I thought I'd do a different post on some random info about Mama.  It's not because of receiving a blog award (like most people do) but instead because this has a been a fairly slow news week and I've got nothing else...

1.  I can talk like Donald Duck.  Great "skill" to have when babysitting.

2.  I love French's yellow mustard and go through a bottle every 10 days. Best condiment ever.

3.  I'm a pretty awesome (and fast) driver and in another life I should have been a Formula 1 race car driver. 
But since I've had kids I've totally changed the way I drive and now have a huge new appreciation for driving safely and responsibly. These days I'm more like Morgan Freeman in Driving Miss Daisy than Michael Schumacher.

Fastness. Hotness.

Note: I said Formula 1 driver, not NASCAR.  
NASCAR is beyond lame. Sorry Ricky Bobby Fans.

Round and round. Uncool.

4. I can type up to 83 words/minute (according to typing tests I've taken) however my accuracy/spelling could use work. Obviously.

5. I am a great cook but a lousy baker. Baking requires precise measurements and it's like following a formula. Cooking is more free-style and dare I say, creative.  
 I don't have much of a sweet tooth and I never had an Easy Bake Oven as a kid.  That explains it. 

6. I am blind as a bat. I've worn contact lenses everyday for 20 years. I really should have laser eye surgery but I'm scared.  What if something goes wrong and my eyesight gets worse? Though I doubt that's possible.

7. I have a pretty fantastic Operatic voice (Mezzo-Soprano) but more or less no one has ever heard it. I'm ridiculously self-conscious about being judged. 
I'm even scared to sing Karaoke after a half a dozen cocktails.
 Mama's dream Karaoke song of choice: Roberta Flack/Lauyn Hill's, Killing me Softly

This list could have gone on forever but I'll save more Mama-fun-facts for another time.
Happy Easter Lovelies!

I never had an easybake oven either!!!!! I always blamed my culinary disasters on that. When I bake it's from a box!

Get the lasik! I did it last month and it was easy pain and I could see right away.

Love reading more about you. I am also a good cook but not a great baker, I just don't have the patience or attention to detail, despite being able to rock that Easy Bake oven years ago. I'm scared to get lasik too!

Adrienne said...

Cute list...I should have had lasik too. In fact, my husband gave me lasik as a birthday gift a few years ago and I never did it! I bought a pair of boots instead.

I don't bake either - only quick breads and an occasional cookie. It sort of bores me.

We have a big raceway about 20 minutes from our house. I don't know much about car racing, just that there is a huge NASCAR race there once or twice a year and all the ya-hoos come out to watch it. The traffic is a total nightmare for about 3 or 4 days. That 's my reasoning for not liking Nascar. Makes perfect sense, right?

a bottle of french's mustard every 10 days?!?! i've NEVER heard of anyone loving it that much before.

that's pretty funny... :)

Marie a la Mode said...

Wow, that's a lot of mustard! I go through a bottle every 1.5 years! I'd love to hear you talk like Donald Duck; ) Have a great weekend!

Lindsey said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I LOVE mustard too and recently I've been obsessed with grey poupon. Yummmy!! Your babies are too cute. Hope you had a great Easter.

bananas. said...

I like mustard on hot dogs ONLY.

I can't see without my contacts either. Like, can't see my hand in front of my face, can't see. I want Lasik, but can't afford it. Why isn't it covered by insurance? Huh??

I think about easy bake ovens more often than I should. It's weird. At almost 24, I want to go out and buy another one! Sometimes I smell things that remind me exactly how the cakes smelled, it's great! haha

Pop Champagne said...

love the mustard too, and so cool that you can talk like donald duck!! :D it'd be a nice prank on someone over the phone hehe

Kim's Vanity said...

Aww, this list made me smile!
haha talking like Donald Duck would be THE best asset while baby sitting. I love mustard, too, have you used it on KD? Out of this world! (If you like KD).
