Last one to the party

Here I am all late to the tag. InnerDiva tagged me a few weeks ago, but I'm just now getting to finish it. Here are my randoms:

1. I'm typing this during a meeting where I find out I lost my job. No worries, I'm still employed until at least May. I've been a contractor for 3 years. The company I'm contracted to said they want to hire me, they're checking for positions. 
2. I've battled acne for 14 years. I tried almost every topical remedy and a few pills over the years, no improvement. I tried removing foods from my diet, no improvement. I started adding flax meal to my oatmeal to help with my breast milk production and my skin cleared up. I stopped eating it for a few weeks, and acne came back. So, black soap, yes to tomatoes skin care line, and flax meal finally has my skin looking lovely.
3. I don't like bananas, but I love banana candy. I love watermelon (even though I had to make myself not be allergic to it) but nothing watermelon flavored. 
4. I'm a horrible dish washer. MrC just told me he would take over the dishes because I do an inadequate job. 
5. I always think I'm pregnant. I buy store brand pregnancy tests in bulk. I have a 5 pack from Walgreens under my sink right now. Well, there are only 3 left. When those run out (probably by April, lol) I'll get some from the dollar store. 
6. I'm a prude. I don't like watching people kiss and I rarely watch se.x scenes in movies. I feel like I'm intruding on a private moment! I spend a lot of my time watching Nickelodeon and Disney, although I do have a beef with Nickelodeon about the show Vic.torious. Her skirts are too short and they just had an episode where the kids got really trippy after eating "tacos." It was really inappropriate, if you took out "tacos" and inserted "weed" the episode would make perfect sense still. Not cool.
7. I always think people are going to get Herpes. I've worked in pharmacy related jobs for 11 years. A lot of people take herpes medication. Be careful who you kiss.
8. I don't like being questioned. 
     Me: I'm going to the grocery store
     MrC: For what?
     Me: Grocery, negro. why does it matter?
     Me: I'm about to fix dinner
     MrC: What are you making?
     Me: Food, negro. Why does it matter?
I wish I was joking. We have that exact conversation every week. I always ask what he wants from the store of what he wants for dinner and he says whatever I do is fine. If whatever I do is fine, don't ask me what I'm doing. He just shakes his head and asks God why He gave him such a crazy wife.
9. I want to get thrown out of somewhere for brea.stfeeding so I can riot and have a sit in.
10. Pray that you are never my neighbor. I spy on them all the time and make up stories about their lives. Maybe I'll get to blog about that before the end of the year. If anything ever goes wrong, they'll thank me because I'll call the police if they're off schedule. The house diagonal from us is giving me a run for my money. They are so unpredictable. I don't like it.
11. I love planning parties. I have always talked much trash about not giving Judah a 1st birthday party, and how I don't believe in parties for babies. I still don't believe in parties for babies, butI thought of such a good theme, I can't let it go to waste!

These are the questions from Inner Diva
  1. iPhone, crackberry, or droid? Droid
  2. In your Lifetime original movie, who would play you? KeKe Palmer 
  3. This is a question I ask my husband all the time when we're deciding what's for dinner–if you were on death row (jail, not the record company), what would your last meal be? Curry Chicken, pizza, cheese fries, cookies, watermelon and fruit punch
  4. Under what circumstances, if any, would you be a guest on the Maury show? I'd go to be a therapist. I like to tell people what's wrong them
  5. What's your favorite movie? Return to Me
  6. How did you decide to live where you live right now? We needed to move closer to my parents since we were having a baby. This town was the only town I was willing to consider in the county. This was the best house for our requirements and budgets.
  7. If you were a celebrity, what would you be famous for? I'd like to be famous for my singing and dancing. I can do neither, so if I were catapulted into celebrity tomorrow, it would be because I'm the mom of a really cute kid!
  8. Will you miss the Twinkie? I have never had a twinkie. It will not be missed by me.
  9. What's on your nightstand? Video monitor, 2 nail clippers, teether, earrings, hair clips, bible, 2 journals, 1 book, a party bag, 2 magazines, ni.pple cream and 4 ink pens (my night stand has 3 shelves. I like clutter. Stoop judging me)
  10. How old were you when  you got your driver's license, and how many tries did it take you to pass the road test? (I just want to know if I'm the only weirdo) 16, just once
  11. Are your ears pierced? If they are, did you get them done when you were little, or when you were older?I got them pierced for the first time as a baby, got an industrial bar at 18, got a second hole at 20, and I think I'll get another at 27
I'm not going to tag anybody since we're way past this now!

OMG!! Why does Rashan ask me what we're having all the time!!? None of your business! Your commentary isn't going to change it and you'll eat what I cook! You'll find out when we sit down to eat. I like bananas but not banana-flavored things. Blech. I like watermelon-flavored things (gum!!!) better than watermelon which can be bland. I've never taken a pregnancy test! I wanna play! LOLOL ROTFL @ herpes!! Horrid! *Noting not to be your neighbor & judging you for your nightstand.

Pause. You've NEVER had a Twinkie? Can you send me your address so I can send you one?

I'm sorry about your job. Contract work can be so tricky. I hope they hire you, but will that mess with your SAHM status?

Fenugreek is also helpful with milk production. It makes you smell like syrup, but it works. Oh, and Mother's Milk tea.

I carry around a pamphlet with my rights as a breastfeeding mother. I wish someone would say something.
