Have you ever...

Okay, so I've been tagged by the almighty, and only slightly evil, Wench. She's awesome and you gotta check her out. Seriously. I know I say that about everyone I shout out on here, but you know, I wouldn't shout someone out if I didn't think they deserved it!

On to the questions... Oh and y'all know me well enough that I can't just check it and go on. I must expound on everything and tell you long drawn out stories that you probably don't care to hear. Hey, you're here of your own volition, so evidently you like my rambling, eh?

Has Diva ever...

( ) snuck out of the house (Hell no!! My dad put the fear of God and the Constitution of the United States and probably some freaky Masonic ritual in me and the thought never even crossed my mind to sneak out.)
(x) gotten lost in your city (Sadly yes. I grew up in the country and didn't move to town till I was 18. I was trying to show my boyfriend my new house and got totally lost, ended up pulling my car over and bawled on his shoulder for a good five minutes. Then he quietly asked me for the address, and told me to start driving. I was a whole block from my house. Stace, that was your darling husband. He was so sweet!)
(x) seen a shooting star (And I wish on them, too)
( ) been to any other countries besides Canada (Besides Canada? I've never even been to Canada!)
(x) had a serious surgery (Gall bladder, stubborn kidney stone removal)
(x) gone out in public in your pajamas (Pajama Nite at the Turtle, anyone?)
(x) kissed a stranger (I was 18, hush)
(x) hugged a stranger (I'm prone to random acts of hugging, yes)
(x) been in a fist fight (Does beating the crap outta your little sister count? Otherwise, no.)
( ) been arrested (Never even gotten a speeding ticket either.)
(x) laughed and had milk/coke come out of your nose (Ow.)
(x) pushed all the buttons on an elevator (Ah, band trips...Why the teacher booked us rooms in the Hilton I'll never know. We pissed off some rich dudes that weekend.)
(x) swore at your parents (But it's always in jest. I promise. Mom's the coolest.)
(x) been in love
(x) been close to love
(Close sucks, too)
(x) been to a casino (Now THAT is a funny one. Nope. Never.)
( ) been skydiving
(x) skinny (Yet, and I thought I was fat. Teenagers are idiots.)
(x) skipped school (Got caught, but didn't get in trouble. Dad was in on it, lol.)
( ) seen a therapist (Probably need to, though)
(x) done the splits (Those were the days...)
(x) played spin the bottle (But I never got kissed)
( ) gotten stitches
( ) drank a whole gallon of milk in one hour (Bleh, I'm not sure I've drank a whole gallon of milk in my life.)
(x) bitten someone (Hee hee hee)
( ) been to Niagara Falls
(x) gotten the chicken pox
(x) kissed a member of the opposite sex
(x) crashed into a friend's car (Not so much "crash" per se, as just wedge my rear door into his bumper and hence, scrape the livin' shit outta my car. The principal watched the whole thing from his office and never offered to help. My friend laughed and then hugged me.)
( ) been to Japan
( ) ridden in a taxi
(x) been dumped (Do we have to bring that up?)
( ) shoplifted (Again, the fear of God thing.)
( ) been fired (Amazingly)
( ) had a crush on someone of the same sex (Do Gwyneth Paltrow and Kelly Preston count?)
(x) had feelings for someone who didn't have them back (Again, with the rehashing. Freakin' sadists.)
(x) gone on a blind date (Wasn't too bad either. I've had planned dates that were worse.)
(x) lied to a friend (Sadly)
(x) had a crush on a teacher (*sigh* Mr. Spencer, junior high math...I wanted to marry that man. Now when I look at him I wonder why...he's so geeky!)
( ) celebrated Mardi-Gras in new Orleans
( ) been to Europe
( ) slept with a co-worker (One must be employed before one can sleep with a co-worker)
(x) been married (Livin' that dream daily)
( ) gotten divorced (Not yet)
(x) had children (I had them where did I put the little boogers...)
(x) seen someone die (Ooh yes, I have. A dude was threatening the police with a hatchet and when he ran at one, they shot him. Right there on the street. I was driving by as it happened.)
( ) had a close friend die (No, thankfully. I don't want to think about that.)
( ) been to Africa
(x) driven over 400 miles in one day (It's not fun either)
(x) been to US
( ) been to Mexico
( ) been to India
(x) been on a plane (I was 8. We flew home from Nebraska.)
(x) seen the Rocky Horror Picture Show (You haven't lived till you've seen it and Tommy.)
( ) thrown up in a bar (No, but plenty of times on the way home from one)
( ) purposely set a part of myself on fire (WTF?)
( ) eaten sushi (bleh)
( ) been skiing/snowboarding (I have no medical insurance. And I am a clutz.)
( ) met someone in person from the internet (My mom would shit her pants. But Karen, I will end up on your doorstep one of these days, blogsis! Beware!)
(x) lost a child
(x) gone to college/university (One whole semester)
( ) graduated college/university (One whole semester does not a degree make)
(x) fired a gun (I'm from Oklahoma. Duh)
( ) purposely hurt yourself (Unless going back to my ex-boyfriend time and again to let him break my heart repeatedly is considered purposely hurting myself...then yeah, I've done it.)
(x) taken painkillers (Kidney stone. 'Nuff said.)
( ) been intimate with someone of the same gender (Kelly? Gwyneth? Either of you girls up for it?)

Well, the Almighty Gods of Blogging will not let me into my edit page over at Tripod. I'm thinking that this is some elaborate scheme to get me back to cleaning. I have spent the last few hours cleaning out the camper. Who would have thought we could cram so much crap into that cute little trailer? I put a tarp out on the driveway and pulled my own camping version of Clean Sweep. Now all the stuff I'm keeping is sitting in my kitchen just waiting to be put away. So, all that to say that I'll get to the tag as soon as possible.

We....the people
