WWtKW: Faves & Hates

Good morning, Kitschies!  How can it possibly already be Wednesday?  Unbelievable.  Anyway...since I'm too lazy busy to get more pics prepped for my blog, I decided to hook up with We Want to Know Wednesday again.


This week's questions come from Janette.

1.  What game show have you always thought you could be on and totally WIN?
I think I would totally rock (pun intended) Name That Tune.  It hasn't been on in a REALLY long time (like, 1985), but for whatever reason, I can remember melodies and lyrics like nobody's business.  That, and I think my hubs and I would dominate Survivor.  What I wouldn't do to get on a show like THAT!  

2.  Do you have a tattoo(s)?  What are they and what made you chose them? If not, would you get one, yes/no/why?
I sure do!  4, to be exact.  I got #1 (a band of music notes around my right ankle) when I was 18 - I was engaged to a musician at the time and music was (and still is) a big part of my life.  I love it, but it needs some touch-up work.  #2 (a red, white and blue tribal scarab on my low back) came about shortly after I moved to Albuquerque (maybe around 2000?).  I'm patriotic and I liked the design.  There's a bit of a story with #3 (a faerie with a vine around her).  I was scheduled to get her done on 9/11.  Yes.  THE 9/11.  Of course the shop was closed so I rescheduled for 9/18.  I wanted a faerie for a long time and the guy who did #2 drew #3 for me and she is so pretty.  #4 joined me in October 2007 and is the letter N (for Nate) on my left wrist.  I want to get at least two more....some day.

3.  What is your favorite piece of jewelry that you own?
That would have to be my wedding and engagement rings.  I did a post on my rings a while back as one of "My Favorite Things".   We ordered the band out of a catalogue (how romantic, right?), but it's the inscription of "A blessing on the soul" in Ogham that makes my ring special.

4.  What is your driving pet peeve(s)?
Ooooh...I have a BUNCH of driving pet peeves but I'll go with the two biggest ones.  Not using turn signals and speeding/swerving through traffic just to get one car ahead.  I swear, it's like when people come in to New Mexico, there's some secret switch that automatically turns off their turn signals.  It's horrible.  And the speeding/swerving thing?  How far ahead do you ever really get?  If I can look over and see you sitting RIGHT NEXT TO ME, there's no point.

5.  What was your favorite sitcom growing up that you wish was still on?
I have a few.  Cheers, The Cosby Show, The Facts of Life...the list could go on and on and on!  But, of those, I think I miss The Cosby Show the most.  What a great family!

Check out the linky at the top of the page for lots and lots of other WWtKW memes.  It's always fun to blog hop and get to know new bloggy buddies!

I loved the Cosby show too! Shows are just so different than they used to be-and it isn't necessarily a good thing. I would suck suck suck at name that tune... I would know it, but would never remember the name of it. :)

sara said...

Driving in the turn lane is my big one. It's called a TURN's for turning. If you were meant to drive in it that wouldn't have made it a special separate thing!

Myya said...

Name that tune... ha ha ha I am totally picturing Kathy Lee Gifford singing the la la la's.

Pictures of the tattoos??? How come no one is posting pictures??? I love tats & wanna see em!!!

I remember your ring from your Favorite Things post. I loved it then & I still think it is pretty cool, I love the meaning behind it!!

Drivers... people can be such idiots behind the wheel of a car!

Ohhh the Cosby show, I forgot about that one. Sometimes i watch reruns, love that show!

Robyn said...

Your rings are so gorgeous!

Dee said...

Your rings are gorgeous! I forgot about Cheers, loved that show!

Stray Stitches said...

I think all of the turn signals have been dismantled here in baker's pit - lol!
The Cosby Show was always one of my favorites too :)

Lacquer Ware for Tips and Toes said...

Excellent post. I'm going to know so much about you soon that I'll be sending you a christmas card (like I actually get those out on time, but you know?).

I love driving around stoopid drivers - I've increased my vocabulary quite a bit as I learn more creative ways to tell people off while I'm in my car. :)

Shawn said...

My husband is a pro at Name That Tune, it makes him crazy that I give blatantly wrong answers. It may be a heavy metal band playing when he asks me who it is and I'll reply Barry Manilow. Makes him nuts!

Tattoos are like potato chips, who can't stop at just one!

Beautiful ring, I love it!

I think we may be seeing a lot more Cheers reruns with a certain blue eyes girl dancing on DWTS. I just love her!

Paul said...

oh the Cosby show...good choice.

oh we totes have the same peeve on the road girl!!

thanks for linking up!

Lorene said...

I am impressed that you would be good on any game show... my only chance would probably be Lingo or maybe Wheel of Fortune :)

And driving around here in Utah almost always makes me lose my faith in humanity. People are selfish and rude and then just stupid... everyone except me, of course ;)

A Randomlicious Blog for the Soul said...

I think there might have been a "Name that Tune" type of celebrity show on recently??

I like your wedding and engagement ring..your wedding ring is so unique and it.

Impulsive Addict said...

I love the meanings behind your tattoos. I'm hoping to get one more with Emma Kate's name somewhere.

Great inscription and very pretty rings.

Why can't people just use their blinkers? I mean, it's not that hard to turn them on. It drives me insane too!

Thank you for linking up with us! You're a gem!

P.S. Your nails up there in the newer post are GORGEOUS. I'm completely jealous.

Johanson Family said...

Aw, I love that you got a tattoo on your wrist, I was thinking of getting my next one there but just unsure what to get...Love how unique your rings are!! I think they are beautiful!! I'm so glad you linked up with us!! FUN!!!

Not using a turn signal used to be one of my pet peeves until the center console of my car got stolen a few months ago (parked at the park and Ride on President's day, grr!). It held the circuitry for the hazards and indicator, so I couldn't signal until that part was replaced! Now I make the charitable assumption that those who don't signal had something equally unfortunate happen - to keep myself from cussing at them when they cut me off.
