We Want to Know Wednesday

What's Up my little Schmetterlings ? (German for butterflies)

So I was gonna write about my pet peeves in dating, but I didn't feel like posting it, so we will just have to settle for a survey instead. I snaked this one from Steve's Nude Memphis Blog. I would leave a link to his blog, but I am very lazy right now and don't feel like it. Sorry, Nude Stevo !

Anyhooters, not gonna keep you anylonger. If you want to tap into your inner survey whore, please feel free to take this and then post the answers so the rest of us voyeurs can see.

Besitos !

1.) You have been asked to give a 10 minute speech to teenage girls. What is it about?I would tell them what I wish I would've understood as a teenage girl..............

           - Life flies by so fast. Don't always believe older people when they say you have your whole life to accomplish your goals, because all you have is now. If you put off your dreams, you will end up looking back and wondering why you didn't just give yourself a chance when you had the time and no huge responsibilites.
           - I would also tell them that although they've probably grown up being told that they could do anything they set their mind to, everyone faces rejection down the road and they will too at some point. But life can be a numbers game. Sometimes you get what you want because you earned it, sometimes it's by pure happy accident, sometimes it's because you know the right person. When that doesn't happen for you and you get rejected, feel sad about it for a little bit and then move on and don't look back.

{2} Do you have a pet? Tell us about them. No pets? Why?

I don't have a pet, but I look after my friend's terrier mix, Chloe. Chloe is very special to me, and she is highly intelligent and extremely sensitive. Sometimes the best companions are not human.

{3} What is the biggest inconvenience about the place you’re currently living?
                                  The gangbangers that like to jizz out graffiti on our block. I also can't stand the creepy lurker guys in my neighborhood market.

{4} What do you think is the single best decision you have made in your life so far?
                           Not marrying my ex-boyfriend, hands down. The break-up was hard for me mainly because I was so uncertain about the future, but looking back, I am thrilled I didn't move across the country to live with him. He has since remarried the woman he started seeing behind my back, and I am glad she got him. I was never in love with him, and in the end she was my way out.

{5} What are the THREE "nevers" of your life? (things you would never do or have never done)

                - I have never been on a cruise
                - I would never willingly eat eggplant
                - I have never ever been able to do the front splits, even though I used to fully be able to do the side splits as a kid.

Hey you!!

Rats... I was hoping you were going to write your dating comments... those are always interesting!!!

Of course, anything one picks up from Nude Memphis (er... wrong choice of words) is just as entertaining!!!

I hope all is well out there!!

But it's Thursday!

I like it. I'd never eat eggplant on purpose, either.

I'm totally stealing this. Who is the naked Memphis guy btw? I hope he is not posting pics of his weiner on Twitter!

Whoa! You must have a pair of stones as a BEAUTIFUL single woman living in an area like that!!

Nothing else about your hood... anywho, take care and be well... remember there are people who are sincerely rooting for you..!

I so love these survey posts!

Good advice to teenage girls!

I've never been on a cruise either, and have no desire to do so.

Regarding your nevers- you aren't missing anything- if you do a cruise, its better with a partner. I went with gals and that's really all that's there, old folks, couples and women. Single men don't seem to cruise and if I'm a single gal stuck on a boat for a week i need some fellas to be around! haha PS you can tell my priorites!

I could've sworn I left a comment here over a week ago! Anyway, your speech is a good one. I wish someone had given me that speech when I was a teenager. All I ever heard was "get off that girl and keep your hands to yourself!"
