Psst...

CompadRay
Hola amigos.  CompadRay here.  Spot came to visit.  We haven't seen each other since we were kids.  Spot had the bright idea to get our pics taken in one of those booths.  I almost lost an eye there at the end.  

We used to have such fun.  One time we were sneaking out of the house to go to a party.  You know the drill.  Quiet as a mouse, the folks finally asleep and the party just getting good.  We had the front door open and were almost gone.  Spot decides to step on the cat.  That cat hisses and claws at his feet.  Spot freaks out and here comes the high beam.  I can't remember our story but Dad wasn't buying it.  Spot  wasn't allowed over after that.

We all have one of those friends.  They've been there and have the battle scars to prove it.  Good thing it's National Friends Day.  We can sit back reminisce and say thanks for being a friend.  Speaking of friends.  Let's test that friendship.  Here's a list of questions.  Not only do we want you to answer these, but you should stay tuned to the comments section.  Some of us have truly put our friends to the test.  We've sent them these questions to answer about us.  I wonder how they'll do.  Not that we're into rewarding friendship or anything but answer the questions.  There might be a little something in it for someone.  Ready?  Here you go.

Who was your worst boyfriend/girlfriend? Had to have been the older guy in college who I found out years (I mean like 10!) was a druggie and a coke dealer the whole time we dated. Ha ha. Talk about a clueless small town girl! PS... Crack is whack, he did end up serving time at the pokey in OK.

Cheryl said...

Can I just say that Margaret cracks me up? He did time in the pokey makes me laugh.

I'm liking everyones celebrity crushes! John Cusak, Scott Baio and Hugh Jackman. All great choices.

Claudia said...

That was Dawn posting about me. And yes... she knows me better than I know me.

Scott Baio was my big time crush - even in college. I lived with Dawn for a summer and she would come home every day to me wathching an episode of Charles in Charge.

She knows me well... Crazy family memeber. Got it right. Favorite pasttime. Got it right. My least favorite body part. Got it right.

Thanks for playing along, Dawn!

Peggy... just post your answers to the questions. No rules.

And yes... Ray is genius isn't he?

Just checking in very quickly as today is a super busy day at work!

My friend Kristina will be checking in around 5 today to give the answers to my questions. After she checks in, I will give all my right answers!

Happy day, hla!

KristiG said...

These are my answers (guesses) for Cheryl O'Pry (from Kristi)
Who is your celebrity crush? George Clooney

What is one beauty product you can't live without? Mascara

What was the most thoughtful gift you have received from a friend? probably something from Johnanna. She is good at that.

What family member of your is the craziest? David (your little brother)

What is a favorite past time for you and a friend? Hanging out, visiting, having a beer-low key.

Which part of your body do you like the least? knees??? ( I don't like mine :-)

Who was your worst boyfriend/girlfriend? We try to forget those don't we?

Cheryl said...

YAY! Kristi made it.

Let's see...

She said George Clooney. X! John Travolta. I know. I'm wierd but I just loved him in Phenomenon.

Mascara is correct!

She's right. Johnanna does give really thoughtful gifts but I was thinking from Kristi specifically and when I moved back to Texas she showed up with bags of groceries to help me get moved in.

I said I was the craziest. David is the dumbest because he makes lousy choice after lousy choice. That's me talking not her.

I said Hanging out by the pool so I'm going to count her answer as correct!

I said my stomach area. Damn stretch marks.

Oops. And I outed Andy as the worst. That's why he's the ex-husband! And, I couldn't remember that guys name that we both dated- Michael Morris? But neither of us dated him long enough to be a real boyfriend I don't think...

Sporadic Spy said...

1-Who is your celebrity crush?
Reese Witherspoon

2-What is one beauty product you can't live without?
Shampoo, can’t live with greasy hair and it can double as soap if its the one thing you aren’t taking from me.

3-What gift have you gotten from this friend which was most thoughtful/you've appreciated most?
The chance to really get to know their family and/or significant other (intimacy). Support when I may not have deserved it (loyalty). A long afternoon, a returned phone call despite their busy life, a sincere note in my mailbox (authentic time).

4-What family member of yours is the craziest?
Aunt Rita, you haven’t heard a conspiracy story until you have spent the afternoon with Aunt Rita. You are also likely way undereducated on the plethora of racial slurs available in the English language. Spend the day with Rita...you will something you would rather forget!

5-What is your favorite shared pastime?
My best friend and I from high school like to sit in airports/malls/coffee shops and busy public places and make up wild stories about the people around us.

6-Which of your body parts do you like the least?
Everything between the knees and neck.

7-Who was your worst boyfriend/girlfriend?
Faded memories….although I think one is in jail now. They make take the prize.

Awaiting mermaids!!

Tera said...

Thanks for the birthday love! I had an awesome weekend, though I did miss you all on here :)

I was gone all weekend and didn't get to have Julie answer the questions for me.

Cheryl, I tried really hard to find an old pic of Julie and I, but I don't have any here. Most of my photo albums are in Erie at my parent's house still. If I come across one...it's coming your way.

Happy Friendship Day!

Cheryl said...

I totally get that Tera! :)

Kwhite01 said...

Hey all! Katie's friend Kristina here. I apologize for being so late, but here we go.

Who is your celebrity crush?
That's tough, so I'm going to guess and go with Patrick Dempsey. Or Jon from Jon and Kate Plus 8 (kidding, kind of).

What is one beauty product you can't live without?
Mousse or gel, for that crazy hair of hers.

What was the most thoughtful gift you have received from a friend?
Her room when we lived together was full of stuff from friends but I'm not sure one thing was her favorite. She loves anything handmade.

What family member of yours is the craziest?
Probably her mom.

What is a favorite past time for you and a friend?
Mischief, or just sitting around talking. Decoupaging.

Which part of your body do you like the least?
I hope I don't get in trouble for saying this, but it's got to be her butt.

Who was your worst boyfriend/girlfriend?
Ha, I don't know too much about her relationships before college, but during college it had to be Chuckles.

Katie K said...

Okay, so now that Kristina has posted her answers for me...here we go with the answers I gave!

1-Who is your celebrity crush? Matthew McConaughey (she said Patrick Dempsey or Jon Gosselin)

2-What is one beauty product you can't live without? Toe Nail Polish (she said mousse or gel for my crazy hair- I wish I could live without those!)

3-What gift have you gotten from this friend which was most thoughtful/you've appreciated most? The conversations we have about the things that matter to us the most- our time together (she said homemade things- it's true, I do love them! But with her, I just love TIME and conversation)

4-What family member of yours is the craziest? My mom (she got that one right- oh, mom!)

5-What is your favorite shared pastime? Patoka Lake (Now this time she put time and conversations!!! I guess those are good, too!)

6-Which of your body parts do you like the least? Legs (She says butt. This is true, but I guess I just think of it as part of my legs since they are all huge and blend together! PS Thank you for pointing out to the world that I hate my butt. )

7-Who was your worst boyfriend/girlfriend? Chuck (She says Chuckles- they are one in the same)
