I do not participate in a lot of these but I really needed something easy to post. And I was tagged simply by reading someone else's list. I apologize in advance to some who may be offended (included) in these answers...

Have You Ever:

Taken a picture completely naked? Who me - not completely - evidence destroyed - but there may be newsreel footage.

Danced in front of a mirror naked? Absolutely not - I try to avoid mirrors if I can especially in that state.

Told a lie? I think everyone's answer here better be yes.

Had feelings for someone who didn't have them back? Yup - and finding out that he didn't was devastating at the time.

Been arrested? Nope.

Seen someone die? Yes and death doesn't scare me as much anymore.

Kissed a picture? Over and over - worked hard to obtain a picture I could kiss.

Slept in until 5pm? Oh yes - how exquisite a luxury is that when your babies are small and MIL let's you rest.

Had sex at work? Define sex -- Better not answer that in order to protect the guilty. Remember I am old and have had a lot of jobs.

Fallen asleep at work? Yes - driving back and forth at night to the hospital - a quick nap was in order to survive.

Held a snake? Not because I wanted to, but yes I have. Seems a toddler thought it was funny to hand mom a dead garter snake. The resulting phrase was repeated at inappropriate times for months.

Ran a red light? Not on purpose and no one was coming.

Been suspended from school? Hell no - my mother would have killed me - besides I was always the responsible child.

Pole danced? Absolutely not. However, I have made statements about becoming a stripper.

Been fired from a job? Sure wish I had been - it would have made drawing my unemployment easier.

Sang Karaoke? I love to sing and have been told I should sing more. So yes - yes - yes is the answer here.

Done something you told yourself you wouldn't? Yes - and the result has been one of the most rewarding accomplishments in my life.

Laughed until something you were drinking came out your nose? Beer is really gross when this occurs. I ended up spitting the remainder across the table. This story involved my mother, a stranger, and the words "battery operated toys" nuff said.

Laughed until you peed? Yup - and have been threatened with being tickled to that point again.

Caught a snowflake on your tongue? Yes and it is a lot of fun to teach toddlers how to do this. Just imagine a little one wandering around - tongue stuck out. Bet you smiled at the thought.

Kissed in the rain? And I would love to with the right person again.

Had sex in the rain? Not yet.

Sang in the shower? All the time.

Gave your private parts a nickname? Not - but I am not opposed to slang terms.

Ever gone to work without underwear? Not in my line of work - that would be stupid.

Sat on a rooftop? On my mothers house - on my grandmothers house. Never on the house I live in now. Often on my dads truck roof at the racetrack. Thanks for this question, that was a very pleasant memory jog.

Played chicken? not in car - I was more into drag racing - but I have on a bike. My baby sister always backed down.

Been pushed/thrown into a pool with all your clothes on? Yes - and there were threats of death to the pusher - note to self - tell Jim's girls that story.

Broken a bone? Collar bone, nose, and pinky toes (over and over).

Flashed someone? Yes - Collected Mardi Gras beads - where are those beads now? I later used them in a Bible School Craft. Stop laughing - I know you want to know that whole story.

Mooned Someone? Yes - I was always a hang. Monica was a press.

Skinny Dipped? There was a time when I was so drunk I forgot to take off my clothes.

Shaved your head? I have done many shocking things to my hair but that is not one of them.

Slept Naked? Yes - there will be no other details here.

Blacked out from drinking? Nope - there were mornings when I wish I could forget what happened.

Played a prank on someone? Still do - and there are still some people out there who should be very aware?

Had a gym membership? Yes - and at the time it was money well spent.

Felt like killing someone? Not literally - there have been fleeting thoughts but nothing strong enought to act on.

Cried over someone you were in love with? Yes - would it be true love if they aren't worthy of your tears? I can say that I have truely loved at this point in my life.

Had Mexican jumping beans as pets? We have had them - but never thought of them as pets.

Been in a band? Not in an official capacity but I have sung with several over the years.

Shot a gun? Yes - many times.

Shot a bow and arrow? Yes, but not in years. Funny, me and best friend were talking about this recently.

Played strip poker? No - strip blackjack goes much quicker with two people.

Donated blood? Yes - quite often in the past. Not so much lately.

Ever jump out of an airplane? Not yet - but I would love you.

Been to more than 10 countries?? Close - but not quite.

I tag some of my new friends - Vallen (queenlythings) , MaryAnn (a very mary design), and
Laura (altered eye). I hope they will play.

Hope you enjoyed learning way too much about me.

Oh, my! I just finished the answers to all those questions and I am exhausted. Can we wait awhile before we do that again?
