AKA Getting to Know Me
Sorry literally just had a moment of singing the song “Getting to Know You” from The King and I when I was writing that title. So there’s your first little look inside my head thanks to An Historian from An Historian About Town. If you haven’t already followed her, I suggest it because I’m like always hating that I don’t always have time to go through and read all the posts in my reader that I really want to read because life. So anyways, here we go!
1. Who are you named after?
I am actually named after my great grandmother. Her name was Trula Mae and of course I’m Trula Marie. My mother and my aunt actually fought over it. They ended up agreeing that whoever had the daughter first got to name their daughter that. So obviously I ended up with the name.
2. Do you like your handwriting?
I actually go back and forth between liking and hating it. When I take my time, it’s really pretty and loopy – according to my best friend. And then when I’m in a rush, it’s all sloppy and I absolutely hate it. I can also do calligraphy if I really sit and take my time, but it hurts my wrist like all get out after a while. But it’s a love/hate relationship currently. Probably always will be.
3. What is your favorite lunch meat?
Turkey. But then again I also love bologna as long as it’s beef. I’m just a very picky eater and I usually don’t do sandwiches either. I just like to eat the meat by itself.
4. Longest Relationship?
About three years. And I’m not going to go much more into than that.
5. Do you still have your tonsils?
Yep yep. I’ve (knocks on wood) never had issues with them unless I end up with a sinus infection.
6. Would you bungee jump?
Hell to the nah. I absolutely hate majority of heights. Certain things I get over like balconies and stuff like that. But I’m not a big fan of heights. I’d literally have to do it with someone that I really cared about or trusted to even consider it.
7. Do you untie your shoes before you take them off?
It truly depends on how worn out I am after work. Sometimes I’ve left them untied after I take my uniform pants off (I wear leggings under them) and i’ll just leave them like that until I get home.
8. Favorite ice cream?
It’s like a three way tie. Baskin Robins’ Cotton Candy, Mint Chocolate Chip, and Neapolitan. The main reason I like Neapolitan is because I don’t like strawberry ice cream by itself. But yep, those are my three favorites.
9. What’s the first thing you notice about people?
Their smile and how they smile. You can always tell their confidence as most people who aren’t comfortable with themselves don’t really smile and show their teeth. It really doesn’t have to do with their teeth, but their confidence in general.
10. Football or Baseball?
Ummm, does the following picture explain?
I love American football AND European football respectively. I always cheer for Ireland because I’m half- Irish. And I love my Alabama football.
11. What color pants are you wearing?
Blue jeans. My favorite pair of Levi’s to be exact.
12. Last think you ate? (answer is for the time I wrote this 3-2-17)
Salad with a champagne vinaigrette (it wasn’t fab but it wasn’t bad either), garlic grilled shimp, rice pilaf, baked potato with butter and black pepper, and cheddarbay biscuits. Yes, I went to Red Lobster! I’m an addict.
13. If you were a crayon, what color would you be?
Either a red color crayon – let me be honest I don’t care what color because I just love any color red – or some form of a blushy pink.
14. Favorite smell?
Apple pie. I don’t know why but I love the smell. I actually have a candle that smells just like it and it’s not too heavy on the cinnamon. I’m not the biggest fan of cinnamon unless it’s just the right amount.
15. Who was the last person you spoke to on the phone?
My mom. I was getting ready to go to town and she called the house before I did to ask me to do some errands for her so she could come straight home after work.
16. Hair color?
Currently silver. But my driver’s license says blonde….. Though if I probably let it grow out, it wouldn’t be blonde. Which is why I religiously color it every three months.
17. Eye Color?
Blue. I don’t know quite how to describe it. But my mom days it’s the same as my grandfather’s so that’s really special for me.
18. Favorite foods to eat?
Thin mints! Popcorn, peanut butter cookie dough, and queso dip – the kind you get from Ruby Tuesday preferably.
19. Scary Movies or Happy endings?
Both? I love Scary movies with happy endings.. But there’s not many scary movies that I actually like that are actually scary. The last scary movie that actually kept me up was like… I honestly can’t remember. The last one I saw that was supposed to be scary was Crimson Peak. It actually wasn’t bad, but I never jumped during it which is what I like about scary movies. Dangit, I like to be scared within reason. I worked in a legit haunted house for crying outloud! Get to work movie industry.
20. Last movie you watched?
Underworld: Blood Wars. Yes, I know it’s not out on DVD yet. And no I didn’t stream it online. And no, I won’t give my sources. Sorry not sorry.
21. Favorite holiday?
Okay I have a top three. Halloween – because I enjoy dressing up in costumes. This year I’m planning on getting a Briar Rose costume and going as Briar Rose from Sleeping Beauty. No I much prefer peasant Aurora than princess. Plus I can’t really do a red version of it, now can I? Therefore Briar Rose.
My second favorite comes up in a couple weeks…. AND I’M OFF WORK FOR IT! I’m half Irish so any excuse to celebrate being Irish is welcomed so I will thoroughly celebrate St. Patrick’s day to the fullest.
My third favorite is Christmas. It’s more so in the idea of commercialism than it is as far as religious stand point. I don’t like dealing with the crazies on Christmas… But I love spending it with family.
22. Beer or Wine?
I’m particular about both, so it really depends. I love red wine and I love beer as far as like malt beers and ciders go.
23. Night owl or early bird?
It really depends on the weather. I know that sounds crazy. But if it’s super pretty, totally an early bird. If it’s rainy and dreary, then it’s a night owl so I can get things done that I didn’t do during the day.
24. Favorite day of the week?
Any day I don’t work? No like seriously my schedule isn’t a normal schedule and has no structure so literally it’s any day I don’t work.
25. Which of your three favorite bloggers do you want to know more about?
26. Who are the latest people to follow your blog?
I hope you enjoyed this small look into my life. I occasionally tweet on the blog twitter about my personal life and the same with the Instagram so you can learn more about me there as well.
