Months ago, I was asked by my friend Megan who is the editor of Canadian Family Magazine and she asked if I would be down with posting on their blog, The Family Jewels. With a name like that, how could I possibly say no? I confessed to her that I wasn’t actually Canadian because I am full of honesty and integrity (unless there are diamonds involved) and she assured me that this was okay, they’d welcome me anyway.

Canadians are nice like that.

Given my choice of weeks, I chose the first week in December because I am kind of in love with the holidays and I figured that I would lose My Hardcore Edge if I told you guys how much your Aunt Becky squealed during the first snowfall. Or how misty-eyed I got every time I heard “Silent Night” or “Ave Maria.” Or how maybe how I begged The Daver to put up the Christmas tree in July.

But whatever.

I’ve written three posts for them. Satan’s Little Helper (which if you haven’t read, you should), one that will air later in the week and the one that I am most proud of. Here it is.

Just don’t tell anyone that I have feelings, okay?

——————

Because I am full of The Holiday Cheer, I have bugged my friend Chris Mancini to give you a copy of his book, Pacify Me, which is a great read. Even though I am not a father or in possession of a penis, I read it and loved it. Plus, it’s the holidays and you can totally give it to someone.

So, it’s giveaway time. Which makes EVERYONE happy.

Especially since this giveaway comes with an extra-awesome idea. AN INTERVIEW.

Oh yes, I am interviewing you. ALL OF YOU.

So, if you want to be entered into this giveaway, and I don’t know why you wouldn’t, because obviously, you have one week from today–December 9–to answer these questions and post my rocking button on your blog. Then come BACK here and leave a comment saying that you did so with a link to your entry. If you don’t have a blog, just answer in the comments, yo.

On December 9, at midnight, random number generator will choose a number and Chris will send you a book. Merry Christmas to you! THEN, I have another person tapped to give you stuff next week. I AM SO GENEROUS WITH OTHER PEOPLE’S STUFF!

It’s very simple.

Let’s get started, shall we?

I’m always telling you to shut your whore mouth. Now it’s time to open it.

1) Do you like sprinkles on your ice cream?

2) If you had to choose one word to banish from the English language, what would it be and why?

3) If you were a flavor, what would it be?

4) What’s the most pointless annoying chore you can think of that you do on a daily/weekly basis?

5) Of all the nicknames I’ve ever had in my life, Aunt Becky is the most widely known and probably my favorite. What’s your favorite nickname? (for yourself)

6) You’re stuck on a desert island with the collective works of 5 (and only five) musical artists for the rest of your life. Who are they?

7) Everything is better with bacon. True or false?

8 ) If I could go back in time and tell Young Aunt Becky one thing, it would be that out of chaos, order will emerge. Also: tutus go with everything. What would you tell young self?

    1) I’m not a huge fan of sprinkles on my ice cream – if I’m going to have an ice cream topping, it’s going to be something fantabulous, like crushed Heath bars.
    2) I hate the word ‘protrusion’ – just cuz.
    3) Dark chocolate. Because chocolate is delicious, but it takes a special kind of person to appreciate the bittersweet taste =]
    4)Ironing. You’re going to make it look all pretty, and then with one movement you get a wrinkle anyways.

    DMB, because…duh. Eric Clapton, because he’s a rock star. Maroon 5, they have music that is sexy and angry at the same time. John Mayer – he’s learned a lot from Clapton and A mixed tape of Christmas Music, because sooner or later, it’s christmas on that island, and I have holiday spirit.

  • Dr. Dre says:

    1) Do you like sprinkles on your ice cream? – I like sprinkles of cash on my ice cream. I don’t even care that it’s all sticky and gooey. I really like rolled up fifties stuck in both sides of my ice cream like those fancy chocolate wafer straw thingies.

    2) If you had to choose one word to banish from the English language, what would it be and why? – Pangs. I think it is a confusing word and people always think you are saying pains when you are saying it. So then people either sound stupid and say Hunger Pains or they sound pretentious when they pronounce the G in pangs. See how much confusion and chaos it causes?

    3) If you were a flavor, what would it be? – I would be a cross between Lime and Butterscotch. Sounds like a Sonic slush flavor, doesn’t it?

    4) What’s the most pointless annoying chore you can think of that you do on a daily/weekly basis? – Clean up after my grown-ass husband. I have photographic evidence.

    5) What’s your favorite nickname? – My dad calls me Ace. But I had a good friend who used to call me Dre. It makes me laugh because it stems from a childhood horror when a substitute teacher called me Andre (as in the Giant) in the 4th grade (I also thought I was chubby.) The name is ANDRA and it sounds just like it is spelled – SANDRA without the S. Damnit.

    6) You’re stuck on a desert island with the collective works of 5 (and only five) musical artists for the rest of your life. Who are they? George Michael, Eva Cassidy, Jonny Lang, Elvis and Tom Petty

    7) Everything is better with bacon. True or false? – Aunt Becky, everyone knows this one. Truer than True. Just this morning I sprinkled some chopped bacon on my Eggos and drizzled the syrup over each tasty morsel. What a combination of sweet and crunchy goodness. Sounds like something Pee Wee Herman ate.

    8 ) What would you tell young self? You’re not fat (just wait until 2006. Jesus.) and screw more guys in college but use protection. Also, don’t fall for every guy you screw in college because you just need to find your groove. Figure out what you like and don’t like and perfect it. Also, it’s not about finding a dude. Have some fun, explore and travel and don’t be such a chicken shit about making people mad.

    Thank you for allowing me to vent. I feel so much better now!

  • Marissa says:

    1) Do you like sprinkles on your ice cream?

    No… I hate sprinkles. There is nothing worse than eating ice cream and then hitting an evil piece of sugary wax. UGHH…

    2) If you had to choose one word to banish from the English language, what would it be and why?

    Queef… (seriously??) I despise that word.. just typing it makes me want to throw up in my mouth.

    Creamy- I have the same reaction to this word as I do to the word moist, it makes me sick.

    3) If you were a flavor, what would it be?

    pumpkin spice .. don’t ask me to explain this because I wouldn’t be able to.

    4) What’s the most pointless annoying chore you can think of that you do on a daily/weekly basis?

    I have to agree with whoever said dusting. I am convinced there is a dust fairy out there that wants to make me go out of my freaking mind. I dust and turn around and it’s BACK!! It’s like a bad rash that will not go away.. (not that I would know anything about bad rashes.. what? I wouldn’t… don’t look at me like that.

    5) Of all the nicknames I’ve ever had in my life, Aunt Becky is the most widely known and probably my favorite. What’s your favorite nickname? (for yourself)

    7) Everything is better with bacon. True or false?

    ABSOLUTELY.. I haven’t found anything yet that isn’t better with bacon.. and trust me I have tried everything.

    8 ) If I could go back in time and tell Young Aunt Becky one thing, it would be that out of chaos, order will emerge. Also: tutus go with everything. What would you tell young self?

    DON’T DO IT! I would’ve said that to pretty much every decision I made before I turned 21…(and maybe a couple of times after that.) Also- I’m thinking that advice would’ve been good yesterday as well. Oh hell.. maybe if I just stay in the house for the rest of my life I can avert the chaos that ensues every time I open my mouth.

    • Manda says:

      Regarding queef – a few months ago some friends were sitting around drinking and we came up with a new term for the word “quart”. It’s a mixture of the words queef and fart. This happens when you fart but instead of politely rolling out the back, the air flow exits through your labial type area. This only happens to women. It was a highly funny conversation, but that may have been due to the beer.

      Regarding bacon – here’s something to try. There is a product called Bacon Salt. It is a seasoning that makes everything taste like bacon. It’s fantastic. Use it as a salt rim on your cheap can of beer (PBR is tasty). It really adds something spectacular.

  • Randa says:

    Okay I did it! Even though I already posted today, but it was supposed to go up yesterday…but I forgot about it and then had to post today.
    Anyway here’s my link!

    2) If you had to choose one word to banish from the English language, what would it be and why?
    * “Gay” I’m straight, but can’t stand the way people use that word to describe things that are not all bedazzled and awesome…and therefore – NOT GAY!!

    3) If you were a flavor, what would it be?
    *(I was going to say ‘dick’ flavor….but since my hubby won’t be reading this….) Rum. Anyplace, anytime! (Part Pirate, probably)

    1) Sometimes, but only chocolate (and thank you for not calling them “jimmies.”
    2) “like”….it’s become the most obnoxious filler word and while I love a good simile using “like” in an appropriate context, I, like, can’t, like, stand it when, like, like is used in like, every freaking, like sentence.
    3) Spaghetti….spaghetti is TOO a flavor!
    4) Removing cat hair. I really don’t know why I bother since everything just will be covered in it tomorrow.
    5) Recently my friend’s kids called me “Beck-tacular” and I think I’m liking that one the most of all.
    6) I get the full collection, right? OK then – in no particular order 1)Billy Joel 2) Queen 3) Sarah Brightman 4) The Carpenters 5) Manheim Steam Roller (or Patsy Cline if it’s not Christmas).

    8 ) No matter how much you hate it and how stupid it seems – don’t skip P.E or try to get a doctor’s note to get you out of it for the duration of high school…..then I’d show me/her a picture of myself/herself at age 25 and an ungodly weight and reiterate that it’s much easier to STAY in shape then to GET in shape.

    1. Not a big fan of sprinkles, but love bittersweet chocolate syrup from Graeters.

    2. The word “huge” just because I hate the way it sounds when spoken.

    3. I would be the flavor peppermint because I see myself as fresh and spicy!

    4. Putting fresh toilet paper on the dispenser. Really, people? You can’t figure this one out on your own? (said to various family members in a disparaging voice)

    6. Mozart, Peter Frampton, Michael Buble, Earth Wind & Fire, and James Taylor

    3: nutella…

    4: everyone should say laundry. Unless you’re rich and have a maid…and then your answer would probably be breathing.

    5: UPS. Cause I deliver(ed)

    6: Mozart – in case I felt suicidal, Jet – I’d need their good beats for when I had to chop down
    trees, Those Jock Jams – great when running for your life from the “locals”, rascal flatts – just because and….the soundtrack to The Sound of Music.

    I don’t think I exactly followed directions on #6…

    7: me + bacon = explosion. So, no. Not better.

    8: to stand up for myself and not care so much about what others think.

  • kbreints says:
  • Mel says:

    I don’t have a blog, and I’m certainly not a new dad so I’m not sure what I would do with the book, but the questions look like fun. So..

    1) Do you like sprinkles on your ice cream?
    Only chocolate sprinkles on soft serve vanilla in a cake cone. Other than that, no.

    2) If you had to choose one word to banish from the English language, what would it be and why?
    The P-word that is used as another name for a vag, or a cat. I hate that word so much I can’t even type it.

    3) If you were a flavor, what would it be?
    I’d probably be vanilla, I’m pretty boring.

    4) What’s the most pointless annoying chore you can think of that you do on a daily/weekly basis?
    It’s really not pointless, but I absolutely HATE putting away the dishes. I don’t know why, but I’d rather take out the trash or scrub the toilet than put away the dishes.

    5) Of all the nicknames I’ve ever had in my life, Aunt Becky is the most widely known and probably my favorite. What’s your favorite nickname?
    I think it depends on who’s calling me by the nickname. My sisters and brother used to call me Melly, I liked that, and my nephew calls me Emme. (Ironically, my real life name is obviously not just ‘Mel’, and I hate it when anyone calls me that. Verbally of course. I’m quite used to it from The Internet.)

    6) You’re stuck on a desert island with the collective works of 5 (and only five) musical artists for the rest of your life. Who are they? (I had to fix the your vs. you’re mishap, did you notice?)
    This is really hard, because my music tastes change regularly. If I were to get stuck on an island today I might say Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, Just Surrender, Hinder, and the Glee cast (have you heard that soundtrack? I LOVE it!)

    7) Everything is better with bacon. True or false?
    False.

    8 ) If I could go back in time and tell Young Aunt Becky one thing, it would be that out of chaos, order will emerge. Also: tutus go with everything. What would you tell young self?
    I would tell me to be more active in high school and go AWAY to college!

    Like. Because like, you know like, how like, annoying it is when like, people can’t like think silently and like need a word to like fill the space?

    3) If you were a flavor, what would it be?

    4) What’s the most pointless annoying chore you can think of that you do on a daily/weekly basis?

  • 1) Do you like sprinkles on your ice cream? Ew, no. What’s wrong with you?

    2) If you had to choose one word to banish from the English language, what would it be and why? The first thing that comes to mind is “shart” because, although it’s helpful and funny, it calls to mind some bad pictures.

    3) If you were a flavor, what would it be? Chocolate, mothafucka!

    4) What’s the most pointless annoying chore you can think of that you do on a daily/weekly basis? Review my rememberthemilk every day because I never actually do anything on it. My lists just grow and grow and make me feel guilty.

    5) Of all the nicknames I’ve ever had in my life, Aunt Becky is the most widely known and probably my favorite. What’s your favorite nickname? (for yourself) I don’t have any “real” nicknames, but my husband used to call me Small Wonder (from that AWESOME show in the 80s) because he said I talked like a robot when I was mad. He also used to call me “Ma’am” as in the mom from “Webster” (another AWESOME show from the 80s) because I used to cut my hair really short and dye it red like hers.

    6) Your stuck on a desert island with the collective works of 5 (and only five) musical artists for the rest of your life. Who are they? The Beatles, The Magnetic Fields, Jurassic 5, Blackalicious, Joy Division/New Order… but this would change depending on my mood, I’m sure.

    7) Everything is better with bacon. True or false? Um, TRUE.

    8 ) If I could go back in time and tell Young Aunt Becky one thing, it would be that out of chaos, order will emerge. Also: tutus go with everything. What would you tell young self? That I will persist, that I can make it through.

  • Also? I am very dumb. I thought I was *supposed* to post my answers here and then post your button on my blog, but I’m just realizing now that I was supposed to do both on my blog. Oops. Okay, going to go post the button now. You can assume I’ve done this unless I come back with questions. Heh. Aunt Becky does technical assistance, right?

  • So, yeah, also blogless.

    1) Do you like sprinkles on your ice cream?

    Dear Internet, My name is rebecca, and I have a confession to make, I don’t actually like ice cream. I know its sacrilege but, its true. Please forgive me internet.

    2) If you had to choose one word to banish from the English language, what would it be and why?

    frick…because if you are gonna cuss, just do it, if the best you can come up with is frick, you probably are not old enough to cuss anyway!

    3) If you were a flavor, what would it be?

    I’m totally watermelon.

    4) What’s the most pointless annoying chore you can think of that you do on a daily/weekly basis?

    Washing towels, I mean, seriously, I was clean when I used it, how dirty can it be!

    Um, no. Yuck. I like roasted nuts. Yep, I said it.

    2) If you had to choose one word to banish from the English language, what would it be and why?
    Anyway – because people are always using it the wrong way and saying anyways. Idiots.

    3) If you were a flavor, what would it be?
    Mint chocolate chip because it looks pretty good but surprisingly, has a bit of a kick ?

    4) What’s the most pointless annoying chore you can think of that you do on a daily/weekly basis?
    Emptying the dishwasher. Hate it. I usually end up just using it to hold clean dishes until I use them all up and have to reload the dishwasher.

    5) Of all the nicknames I’ve ever had in my life, Aunt Becky is the most widely known and probably my favorite. What’s your favorite nickname? (for yourself)
    Lizx – it was a misprint from a standard test we took in 4th grade and my best friend started using it after the teacher called it out while handing back the tests. It is special to me b/c she (my bff) died of cancer when we were in our early 20’s.

    6) You’re stuck on a desert island with the collective works of 5 (and only five) musical artists for the rest of your life. Who are they?

  • Liz Woodard says:

  • downriver deb says:

    1) I don’t care for sprinkles (but then again they’ve never cared for me.) 2) Which word would I banish? Hero (it’s been so overused that it’s become meaningless — such a shame for the TRUE heroes.) 3) I’d be chocolate, of course. 4) The most pointless annoying chore HAS to be dusting. It accomplishes NOTHING! 5)Favorite nickname? Formerly “Shorty”, currently “Gimpy” thanks to a broken foot in a lovely neon green (WHAT?!) cast. 6) Five musical artists? Difficult, as I like individual songs of MANY different genres rather than artists’ complete catalogs, but… Bob Dylan, Roger Miller, Cyndi Lauper, original Monkees, and early Bruce Springsteen/Rolling Stones. (Two earlys = one complete, right?) 7) Better with bacon? Not only is it true, but I think it’s a scientific fact. 8) What would I tell young me? Don’t be so afraid and shy. They’re not so different from you. The more you give of yourself, the more you get back in return. And those who don’t give back aren’t worth your time and worry. Things will get easier in time.

  • MLorraine says:

    Okay, so I obviously have a blog. But it’s all concise and wedding-y and shit at the moment, and as much as I want free shit, I don’t want to muddy it up with (albeit awesome) surveys. JUST SAYIN’. Give me free shit anyway!

    1) Do you like sprinkles on your ice cream?
    No. I think sprinkles are brightly colored flavorless ruined dreams. Oh, look, how pretty and bright and fun! Oh. You’re only flavorless little sticks getting in the way of the good stuff. I’ll pass.

    2) If you had to choose one word to banish from the English language, what would it be and why?
    “Quick”, but only when used incorrectly. Yeah, I’m one of those obnoxious people that actually wants folks to use adverbs. It drives me absolutely bonkers when advertisements say things like, “It helps you clean quick!” QUICKLY, damn it.

    3) If you were a flavor, what would it be?
    Extra sharp cheddar cheese. Mmm, mmm, mmm.

    4) What’s the most pointless annoying chore you can think of that you do on a daily/weekly basis?
    Cleaning the floor drains at work. Not technically pointless, in that I’ve seen absolutely disgusting results when they get clogged, but annoying in that they are fucking gross and no one else ever cleans them, so then they’re super-extra-gross by the time I notice that no one else has cleaned them all week. [sigh] I swear you can get all sorts of diseases just by looking at those drains.

    5) Of all the nicknames I’ve ever had in my life, Aunt Becky is the most widely known and probably my favorite. What’s your favorite nickname? (for yourself)
    It’s a dead heat between “Myrrh” and “Mary Sunshine”. Mary Sunshine was the nickname my beloved preschool teacher gave me. Made me fucking glow everytime she called me that. Hopefully it wasn’t secretly sarcastic or anything. I’m definitely not all sunshine and lollipops these days, but maybe I was then. I don’t know. Myrrh is one of the only other nicknames I’ve ever had, but it’s only used by my very closest friends and is simply a silly shortening of my name.

    6) You’re stuck on a desert island with the collective works of 5 (and only five) musical artists for the rest of your life. Who are they?
    James Taylor, Alison Krauss, Al Green, Michael Jackson, and … eh, The Beatles, I guess. I’ve been on a The-Beatles-Are-Obnoxious kick for a while, but after all, they have a shit-ton of songs I like to sing along to. Also, how old am I again? 55? Oh, 20. Whatevs.

    7) Everything is better with bacon. True or false?
    Well, maybe not EVERYTHING, but generally true. Irritable Bowel Syndrome is not exactly made better with Bacon, but I will suffer for my Bacon if I must.

    8 ) If I could go back in time and tell Young Aunt Becky one thing, it would be that out of chaos, order will emerge. Also: tutus go with everything. What would you tell young self?
    Stab those third-grade cunts in the eye. Wait. Maybe young me shouldn’t listen to me.

    1) Nah, whip cream or anything with peanut butter. mmmm peanut butter.
    2) Penultimate, it’s just so smug with its usefulness.
    3)Are you asking what I taste like? Your guess is as good as mine. But I’d probably be strawberry.
    4)Putting away laundry. Someday, someone else will do it for me, like my husband.
    5)Lo is probably my favorite nickname – my real name is Lauren.
    6) 1) Van Morrison (2) Otis Redding (3) Britney Spears (what?!) (4) The Beatles (5) Aretha Franklin
    7)Not everything. (Ice cream, peanut butter) but Bacon does rock. I especially like it wrapped around scallops.
    8)Don’t allow your 7th grade teacher to tell you that women can’t be in the military because men would not be able to concentrate on the war, and also get a math tutor.

    3) If you were a flavor, what would it be?

    Vanilla with chocolate chips

    4) What’s the most pointless annoying chore you can think of that you do on a daily/weekly basis?

    Washing dishes. I need a dishwasher.

    5) Of all the nicknames I’ve ever had in my life, Aunt Becky is the most widely known and probably my favorite. What’s your favorite nickname? (for yourself)

    1. Nope
    2. Fart. I just hate the word Fart.
    3. I would be honey butter. Mmm…
    4. Trying to tidy my three-year-old’s room.
    5. This is cheesy, but hearing my daughter call me “mommy” for the first time made that my fave nickname.
    6. Musical artists for the desert island: James Taylor, Johnny Cash, Garth Brooks, Dolly Parton, Carole King.
    7. False for me. Not a fan of the smoked pig meat.
    8. Life gets so much better after high school!

    4) Making the bed.
    5) Trolly (like a train). And no, you don’t get an explanation.
    6) Your mom. I only need one.

    I love this! I played along here.

  • Ed says:

    1) The word “sprinkles” makes me think of urine or strippers. Or both. And the east coast alternate, “Jimmies,” is too phallic. So no.
    2) “No.”
    3) Burning. (See: Ralph Wiggums)
    4) Attempt to sleep, apparently.
    5) Fucking Ed. Not because I had a lot of sex (I didn’t), but because I was known for saying shit that made people shake their heads in disbelief.

  • Mel says:

    1) Do you like sprinkles on your ice cream? – Sometimes, depends on the ice cream. Yes on plain vanilla or chocolate, not so much on caramel super fudge chunk.

    2) If you had to choose one word to banish from the English language, what would it be and why? – The word that annoys me the most ‘orientate/d’ can’t be banished as it is not a word, really, it’s a mis-pronunciation of ‘orient/ed.’ So, I’d have to go with ‘pro-active.’ Yuck.

    3) If you were a flavor, what would it be? – I have no idea. My son says strawberry, thinking ice cream. Best I can do.

    4) What’s the most pointless annoying chore you can think of that you do on a daily/weekly basis? Picking up/vacuuming up/cleaning up dog hair. Hopeless.

    5) Of all the nicknames I’ve ever had in my life, Aunt Becky is the most widely known and probably my favorite. What’s your favorite nickname? (for yourself) ‘Lorelei’ although technically I think that’s an alias rather than a nickname

    6) You’re stuck on a desert island with the collective works of 5 (and only five) musical artists for the rest of your life. Who are they? Gilbert & Sullivan aren’t really an artist, but I want to claim them. Then – The Beatles; Mozart; Bob Dylan; and either Miles Davis or Cab Calloway – the judges are still out on those two.

    7) Everything is better with bacon. True or false? Utterly false

  • Victoria says:

    Alas, I am blogless.

    1) Do you like sprinkles on your ice cream?
    Absolutely. My friends think it’s gross how many sprinkles I can and will eat. They always form a waxy film in my mouth, but I actually kind of like that.

    2) If you had to choose one word to banish from the English language, what would it be and why?
    Legit. It’s not a full word, and that bugs me. Then again, I’m in college, so I hear it ALL THE TIME.

    3) If you were a flavor, what would it be?
    Chocolate chip. Mainly bland and happy but with my sultry moments.

    4) What’s the most pointless annoying chore you can think of that you do on a daily/weekly basis?
    I hate showering. I just wish I could keep totally clean without having to actually wash myself. (Also, I have dyed hair, and washing in cold water is a real pain.)

    5) Of all the nicknames I’ve ever had in my life, Aunt Becky is the most widely known and probably my favorite. What’s your favorite nickname? (for yourself)
    Either Beck or Posh. My friend misread my last name when she first met me, and thought my name was Victoria Beckham. She knows my real name now, but the nicknames stuck.

    6) You’re stuck on a desert island with the collective works of 5 (and only five) musical artists for the rest of your life. Who are they?
    1) Sonata Arctica

    Second only to Sardines in the least favorite option of toppings.

    2) If you had to choose one word to banish from the English language, what would it be and why?
    cunt.

    3) If you were a flavor, what would it be?
    chocolate – I’m pretty sure with the amount I consume, I am already this flavor.

    4) What’s the most pointless annoying chore you can think of that you do on a daily/weekly basis?
    making beds…they just get unmade in the evening. And even though I know this and acknowledge it – and swore I would never do it as a child – still I do it every morning.

    5) Of all the nicknames I’ve ever had in my life, Aunt Becky is the most widely known and probably my favorite. What’s your favorite nickname? (for yourself)

    The Beatles
    Billy Joel
    Steven Sondheim (musicals)
    Rogers & Hammerstein (musicals)

    7) Everything is better with bacon. True or false?
    I don’t actually add bacon to sandwiches and stuff but we have a saying in our house which is “bacon fat rules”. We save the drippings and use it instead of oil or butter for a lot of things – awesomely bad for you!

    3) If you were a flavor, what would it be? something spicy and sweet- maybe ice cream with hot sauce?

    4) What’s the most pointless annoying chore you can think of that you do on a daily/weekly basis? Chores blow- dishes and.or cleaning out my car(which only happens about every 3-4 months or when I can’t find one of my children)

    5) Of all the nicknames I’ve ever had in my life, Aunt Becky is the most widely known and probably my favorite. What’s your favorite nickname? Loafy- my best friend’s boyfriend gave it to me when I was in a fit of depression and laid on their couch every.single.day. My then casual sex partner turned soon to be ex husband and father of my 3 children picked up on the Loafy trend and still calls me that today, 15 years later. I dig it.

What would you tell young self? well, I don’t like the idea of changing the future, but I would tell my young self that she was not the mortally psychically wounded soul she felt she was for lo these many years. Young Jennie would probably weep, feel better for a minute and then curl back up into ball of morose-ness.

    5 – Devious Imp, because I am not the person to talk to when you have a should I really do this kind of question (ie. Should I really have another piece of chocolate cake cause I already had Two?)

    6 – Modest Mouse, Nine Inch Nails, The Clash, Queen and Veruca Salt.

    7 – Everything really is better with bacon.

    8 – Try not to sweat the small stuff. Most people suck and do not think of others.

    1) Do you like sprinkles on your ice cream? No…although I’m actually not sure I’ve ever had sprinkles on my ice cream

    2) If you had to choose one word to banish from the English language, what would it be and why? “my bad.” I know that’s kind of two words, but I go into convulsions every time I hear it.

    3) If you were a flavor, what would it be?
    Spice tea – a mixture of tang, instant tea, and some spices.

    4) What’s the most pointless annoying chore you can think of that you do on a daily/weekly basis? Getting the mail. It always starts out fun because maybe something cool will come…and ends in disappointment.

    5) What’s your favorite nickname? (for yourself)
    African Elephant.

    7) Everything is better with bacon. True or false? False

    8 ) Also: tutus go with everything. What would you tell young self? Your parents are real people…get to know them before it’s too late.

  • CatP says:

    1) Do you like sprinkles on your ice cream?

    Down in the South we call ‘em “Jimmies.” And yes, I do like jimmies on mah ice cream.

    2) If you had to choose one word to banish from the English language, what would it be and why?

    Duke – because then it would have to be Dook University. Us Carolina fans (their infinitely superior rivals) have known for decades that this spelling is much more fitting, but it would be awfully nice to see it on their jerseys. And hats. And the ESPN ticker… hehehe.

    3) If you were a flavor, what would it be?

    Well if you really are what you eat, I’d be a chocolate-covered prozac.

    4) What’s the most pointless annoying chore you can think of that you do on a daily/weekly basis?

    Sweeping the hardwood floors. Somehow my apartment is a breeding ground for dust, and my floors WILL be dirty again, within about 2.71 minutes.

    5) What’s your favorite nickname? (for yourself)

    I got stuck with CatP in highschool and finally decided to just embrace it. Now that I’m married my new last initial is S, which makes me… CatPS! I went from cat pee to cat piss! Why would I want to retain a nickname that refers to me as feline urine, you may ask? ‘Cuz why the hell not? I still chuckle every now and then when I see it, and the world could always use more laughter.

    6) You’re stuck on a desert island with the collective works of 5 (and only five) musical artists for the rest of your life. Who are they?

    Justin Timberlake – because we will need some Sexy on that island, and he’s the one who’s bringing it back
    Garth Brooks – obviously
    Jump, Little Children – so friggin awesome
    Taylor Swift – shut up
    The Brian Setzer Orchestra – yeah

    7) Everything is better with bacon. True or false?

    True, as evidenced by the size of my ass.

    8 ) If you could go back in time what would you tell your young self?

    Take a year off from college, the world will not end and you’ll get much better grades when you do go back.

  • 1) As long as they’re not moving.

    2) Omnipotent because it is synonymous with
    my name and I am all about conservation.

    3) Bad Attitude Banana

    4) Waking up.

    5) My pre-marriage last name. None of my friends (0r even my husband)call me by my given name.

    6) Elvis Costello, Green Day, The Soundtrack to South Pacific, The Ramones, Duran Duran (I know, but I deserve some man candy, no?)
    7) Sorry, I couldn’t hear you over the sound of my arteries jamming from the bacon sundae I just ate.

    8) If he’s too pretty, he’ll never be distracted enough from himself to focus on you.

  • Ashley says:

    I have a blog but since I don’t have real big-girl intarwebs… Well, here I am.

    1) I do. I love twist soft serve drowned in butterscotch, crushed Oreos and sprinkles. I also love my Aunt Becky drenched in butterscotch, crushed Oreos and sprinkles. My tongue is doing the Snoopy Dance at the thought of it…
    2) Handle. The word handle makes me want to chew things, and I have no idea why. I should remind Erf never to use the word handle during fellatio…
    3) Vanilla and strawberry – the scent of vanilla turns men on.
    4) Dishes. I will scrub the piss-encrusted toilet barehanded over having to do dishes.
    5) Um… Llama. Because my maiden initials (that sounds like something to be stolen in a Victorian-themed Harlequin, no?) backwards were LMA. Which, at 3:30 in the am, sounded like Llama.
    6) Kelly Clarkson. Christina Aguliera. RENT. The Phantom Of The Opera. Britney Spears.
    7) Why is this even a question? Who doesn’t fucking love bacon?!
    8 ) Don’t be stupid – pay your rent ahead. Also, your birth mom is a silly bitch who isn’t worth all the heartbreak she’ll put you through, so stop trying. She just wants the credit for being a good mom without actually being a good mom.

    Stupid Stabby Beckys. I need to forsake all other Beckys and have no other Becky before Aunt Becky. Damn fucking right.

  • Nicole says:

    1) Do you like sprinkles on your ice cream?
    I don’t really like ice cream. Please don’t stone me.

    2) If you had to choose one word to banish from the English language, what would it be and why?
    I’m not much on banning words (all have their place somewhere), but if I had to choose…”broccoli.” (Can I ban the food, too?)

    3) If you were a flavor, what would it be?
    Sugar cookies, of course.

    4) What’s the most pointless annoying chore you can think of that you do on a daily/weekly basis?
    Scrubbing the floor. It’s just going to get dirty again. And nobody ever says “oh, what a clean floor!”

    5) Of all the nicknames I’ve ever had in my life, Aunt Becky is the most widely known and probably my favorite. What’s your favorite nickname? (for yourself)
    Though it’s cutesy, I love that my family members call me Coey. Especially considering that they gave said cutesy nickname when I was college age. When I was little, they referred to me by my full name only.

    6) You’re stuck on a desert island with the collective works of 5 (and only five) musical artists for the rest of your life. Who are they?
    Goo Goo Dolls
    Melissa Etheridge
    Matchbox Twenty
    Bob Seger
    Beethoven

    7) Everything is better with bacon. True or false?
    Vegetarian, so I have to say false. (Come to the dark side…we have fries!)

    8 ) If I could go back in time and tell Young Aunt Becky one thing, it would be that out of chaos, order will emerge. Also: tutus go with everything. What would you tell young self?
    Don’t play by their rules; what works for them won’t necessarily work for you. Also, when you’re 33, you’ll fall in love with a hot 21-year-old — and he’ll love you back — so don’t waste too many tears on the dorks in the interim.

  • Calamity_Jane says:

    1) Do you like sprinkles on your ice cream?
    I absolutely lurve sprinkles BUT the my favoritest is a warm brownie and vanilla ice cream…nuthin better in the world.

    2) If you had to choose one word to banish from the English language, what would it be and why?
    their, they’re, and there. technically they are three words but no one can ever get them straight…something definitely needs to be done to fix this mass chaos.

    3) If you were a flavor, what would it be?
    Chocolate chip cookie flavored. When is just one of those tasteful things ever enough?
    Exactly.

    4) What’s the most pointless annoying chore you can think of that you do on a daily/weekly basis?
    Making the bed. Like, honestly, who sees it 99% of the time? You do. And every day you make, you just mess it up again less than 24 hours later. Pointless. Annoying…..why bother?

    5) Of all the nicknames I’ve ever had in my life, Aunt Becky is the most widely known and probably my favorite. What’s your favorite nickname? (for yourself)
    Kate….can’t mispronounce it or mispell unless your IQ is that of a chimpanzee.

    6) You’re stuck on a desert island with the collective works of 5 (and only five) musical artists for the rest of your life. Who are they?
    *AC/DC
    *Jack Johnson
    *Couting Crows
    *Jason Mraz
    and just the days I feel like something different
    *Shakira

    7) Everything is better with bacon. True or false?
    False. I’m going to have to go with chocolate on this one. May not be original but its a classic.

    8 ) If I could go back in time and tell Young Aunt Becky one thing, it would be that out of chaos, order will emerge. Also: tutus go with everything. What would you tell young self?
    Well. The problem with this question is that I’m still pretty young…..but I tell myself everyday that I just gotta let go and have fun. Yes, my personality is extremely reserved and borders on boring. Don’t judge!

  • joann Mannix says:

    I have a blog, but…my mom reads it and since I want to keep the illusion that I’m a nice girl, I’ll keep my answers right here in your always fun world, Becky.

    1) Do you like sprinkles on your ice cream?

    I’ll eat em, if they’re there. But, I’m more of a hot fudge, chopped up Snickers Bar, gooey chocolate kind of girl.

    2) If you had to choose one word to banish from the English language, what would it be and why?

    I have two: Crotch-which is just a plain down-right disgusting word. And Creamy. Put the two of them together and I just might have an epileptic seizure.

    3) If you were a flavor, what would it be?

    I would be a red zinfandel, not a white zinfandel, mind you because, as a wise quote once said, “Friends don’t let friends drink white zinfandel.” A RED zinfandel because it is warm, complex and spicy with just a note of pepper and dark chocolate.

    4) What’s the most pointless annoying chore you can think of that you do on a daily/weekly basis?

    Every, every, every soul-killing chore in my house. I’d rather be writing. But, as anyone who reads my blog knows, my hatred runs deep for laundry. Laundry Hurts My Feelings. (Unabashed plug.)

    5) Of all the nicknames I’ve ever had in my life, Aunt Becky is the most widely known and probably my favorite. What’s your favorite nickname? (for yourself)

    My childhood name is Jo or Jo-Jo. It wasn’t until I met my husband, that I came to be known by my given name. He said he didn’t want to call me Jo because he felt like he was dating a man. I’d say a tad bit homophobic, hmmm? My oldest friends and family still call me Jo.

    6) You’re stuck on a desert island with the collective works of 5 (and only five) musical artists for the rest of your life. Who are they?

    1. U2
    2. Annie Lennox
    3.Patty Griffin
    4.Radiohead
    5. Henry Mancini-Because there is no more beautiful song than Moon River, no matter how many times you hear it.

    7) Everything is better with bacon. True or false?

    So, here’s why I can’t post on my blog. Yes, everything IS better with bacon and I was thinking about it, wouldn’t a certain oral gift to men be a whole lot better to swallow, pun intended, if THAT tasted like bacon? I think women would be much more inclined if men’s stuff tasted like bacon. I, myself, have no problem with the gift. A few minutes of my time keeps the household harmoniously happy and if that’s all it takes…but, bacon would make it that much more effortless.

    8 ) If I could go back in time and tell Young Aunt Becky one thing, it would be that out of chaos, order will emerge. Also: tutus go with everything. What would you tell young self?

    I would tell young Jo-Jo to stop doubting her own talents and just do it. Pursue writing instead of all the other careers I floated through. Writing fills my heart with joy and I dig a joyous life.

    And…oral gifts will not ever taste like bacon, you know, just to prepare myself.

    That’s my whore-mouth (pun intended) take on life for you.

    4. Gathering up my husbands socks. Why must there be a trail of socks?
    5. Princess Francheska Ronaldi Demigoddess of Small Woodland Creatures who are Horny. (Latin Class)
    6. U2, Cake, Joseph Arthur, Beatles, BareNaked Ladies
    7. False. “Everything” would imply not only food items. I don’t want to take a bath with bacon floating in it. Does bacon float?
    8. Marshall’s is evil. Don’t work there.

  • Trista says:

    Okay, I know I have a blog but it’s taking me an embarrassingly long time to figure out how to put a button on m*therf*cking WordPress. I’ll get it eventually (now I’m determined), but in the meantime:

    1) Do you like sprinkles on your ice cream?
    No. Just, no.

    2) If you had to choose one word to banish from the English language, what would it be and why?
    “Plenipotentiary” because really, do we need it?

    3) If you were a flavor, what would it be?
    Chocolate Mint (A close second was the politically incorrect Chocolate Peanut Butter)

    4) What’s the most pointless annoying chore you can think of that you do on a daily/weekly basis?
    Dishes, dishes, dishes. I feel like I stand at the sink washing the same dishes ALL THE TIME. Over and over. We have a dishwasher, but that doesn’t seem to change things much. At least the baby bottles are finally history. Oh, and laundry and picking up my kid’s toys and where is a live-in housekeeper when you need one?

    5) Of all the nicknames I’ve ever had in my life, Aunt Becky is the most widely known and probably my favorite. What’s your favorite nickname? (for yourself)
    My husband calls me “Lady” and I think he might actually mean it in the old-fashioned, complementary way (not the “HEY LADY” way). Boy do I have him fooled.

    6) You’re stuck on a desert island with the collective works of 5 (and only five) musical artists for the rest of your life. Who are they?
    1) The Beatles, because their collective almost all of it is brilliant; 2) Billy Joel, because even though he kind of sucked after the 1980s, his Best Of albums are awesome; 3) Madonna,because I can’t have good taste all the time; 4)Billie Holiday – do I really have to explain this?; and 5) a toss-up between Beastie Boys and Red Hot Chili Peppers – both have been around forever and have a big discography, but while I love the Beasties I’m leaning toward the Chili Peppers because they have slow jams as well as their more hyper stuff. I can’t believe I just used “slow jams” in a sentence. Shoot me please.

    7) Everything is better with bacon. True or false? Almost always true

    8 ) If I could go back in time and tell Young Aunt Becky one thing, it would be that out of chaos, order will emerge. Also: tutus go with everything. What would you tell young self?
    Few things are as bad as they seem at the time. Yes, the world is ending RIGHT NOW, but it won’t always be this way.

    4) What’s the most pointless annoying chore you can think of that you do on a daily/weekly basis?
    -scrubbing out diapers- i guess its not pointless but it is annoying and gross..i jusr have to remind myself that its better for my baby’s butt and less expensive than buying pampers.

    5) Of all the nicknames I’ve ever had in my life, Aunt Becky is the most widely known and probably my favorite. What’s your favorite nickname? (for yourself)

    frothy. ick. wait…or maybe fresh.

    3) If you were a flavor, what would it be?

    Cherry. A little tart but sweet enough to be popular.

    4) What’s the most pointless annoying chore you can think of that you do on a daily/weekly basis?

    Mopping. sigh. The second you mop, the dogs or the husband drag their salty snowy paws all over it. There is no point.

    5) Of all the nicknames I’ve ever had in my life, Aunt Becky is the most widely known and probably my favorite. What’s your favorite nickname? (for yourself)

    I have had terrible nicknames, in the dreadfully boring sense. My name is Ashley and my family calls me ‘Shree’ or ‘Shreeb’ – both of which I hate. My high school friends called me Bash instead of Ash, and that’s the one that stuck. I tried to give myself a nickname (Red) but that didn’t really work.

    6) You’re stuck on a desert island with the collective works of 5 (and only five) musical artists for the rest of your life. Who are they?

    the young dubliners
    shakira (especially old school shakira)
    flickerstick
    yo yo ma
    DMB (I’m sorry husband!)

    7) Everything is better with bacon. True or false?

    True!!

    Keep your head down and ride out the storm. It WILL pass. Don’t be a doormat. People who pin every problem on you do not love you and are not worth your time.
