    You are gonna love motherhood with a fear of rubber ballons!  They freak me out too and hate to let the filles use them.  I think they were six and seven (they are nine and ten now) before I was forced to let them use the darn things.

    SB Sarah says:

    Oh MAN I hate rubber balloons. I hate the sound they make. I hate the squeak when they rub up on another balloon. I hate the popping. I HATE them.

    maman says:

    Now you can add the irrational fear of them being sucked into little freebird’s throat.  Or is that just my paranoia talking?

    Candy says:

    Ooh! Ooh! Let’s guess the lie:

    Sarah: The piercing thing. I think. I know at least ONE of the is true because she told me about it, mwahaha.

    E.D’Trix: Ummm. Armed robbery. Because the other two are cooler.

    E.D'Trix says:

    And yeah, armed robbery? Not cool.

    Candy says:

    OK, I have a 50-50 chance of nailing it, so I’m going to go with the Russian trip.

    E.D'Trix says:

    Nope! The lie was the camel ride—never been to Egypt…yet!

  12. 12
    CindyS says:

    E.D’Trix – Damn, I was going to say riding a camel.  2. You cannot name your children Harry, Ron and Heroim-whatever!  3. I could memorize stuff but it took me longer.  I hate those people who can recite a poem they were forced to learn in grade school.  Hey, forget about it already! 4.  A true friend who buys make up and looks at it.  I swear I thought I was the only one who did that.

    Sarah – dang I figured it was the mohawk but now I going with the additional piecings.  Also, I used to say I was afraid of heights until I realized Heights don’t scare me, falling from a height and dying scares me.  Are you saying that baby boy is not named Freebird?  I’m crushed.

    CindyS says:

    From Candy’s:

    Two truths and a lie: I’ve eaten head cheese and loved it, I’ve eaten pig’s feet and loved it, I’ve eaten pig’s ears and loved it.

    I didn’t know at the time if we could guess but I have to say you have not eaten pig’s ears.  Why, because we feed them to our dogs up here.  All the same, I salute you on your adventurous palate and your iron clad gut.  Me, I’d have run screaming from all of the above.  Course, porridge scares me.

    CindyS

  14. 14
    Candy says:

    Correct, but not for the reason you think. I’ve eaten pig’s ears, but I hated it. Too much cartilage. Am not a fan of chewing on cartilage. And actually, eating the wrong part of the pig’s foot can get scary, too, but thus far I’ve been pretty lucky.

  15. 15
    CindyS says:

    So do you eat them on a dare or do you crave it or is your mother into torturing you.

    CindyS

    SB Sarah says:

    the entire idea of head cheese is still making me nauseated, particularly after working at a summer camp where one of my friends had the joy and responsibility of cleaning horse dick cheese. It’s a mental image from which I cannot escape.

  17. 17

    Me Stef or the other Stef?

  18. 18
    Stef says:

    I wondered the same thing, uh, Stef.

    Two truths and a lie: I have problems telling my left from my right, I’ve given a speech in a foreign language dressed as a turtle, as a child I wanted a sister so much I used to refuse to play with my younger brother unless he wore a dress. This would make him cry. But not as much as the time mum made him wear lederhosen to church.

    Amy E says:

    Ooh, the Trans-Siberian Railroad!  That’s definitely on my list of things to do before I die, EvilAuntiePeril.  Did you see the big story that National Geographic Magazine had on it a few years ago? 

    I’m lucky.  In February I get to spend 11 days at one of the places I’ve always wanted to see—London.  Is it time to start packing YET?!?!?!?!

  22. 22
    SB Sarah says:

    All Stefs! Mistress and Other! Bring it on!

  23. 23

    Thanks for recommending the National Geographic article, Amy E – I’ll have to look it up. I’m really really hoping to go next year, so I’m glomming everything I can find right now.

    In the spirit of shared information, since you’ll be making a trek over here, hope you don’t mind a plug for my favorite not-obvious London thing. (Promise I don’t work for them or the London tourist board, although if someone feels like sending a few quid my way for this…).

    It’s http://www.dennissevershouse.co.uk/ The w.ebsite is a tad pretentious, but don’t let that put you off – if you like atmosphere or history it is really fantastic. Since the tours are silent you don’t have to put up with the commentary for long. One of the reasons I really love living in London is the layers of history, and this place gives you a real sense of this and how life might have been among some of the non-ton types.

    Since I always like having an excuse to go I ruthlessly drag along anyone who visits me on one of their tours, but even the most reluctant kidnappees have really enjoyed it by the end.

    Right, advert over, back to work…

    Three ways that you are stereotypically a girl: I spend too much money on Kate Spade purses, I shriek for help when I see a giant cockroach, and I worry about my ass being too big.

    Do I get to meme somebody?  If so, I meme FerfLeBat….and yes, I’m 100% certain I spelled that wrong.

  25. 25
    SB Sarah says:

    Stef: Kate Spade? Oh yes! Yes yes! And Van Halen’s “Pretty Woman” absolutely makes my day. Same as Lenny Kravitz’ “American Woman” – I want to shake my groove thang like a big ol’ dork.

    And truth truth lie: If you had dinner with Matthew McConaughey (which I believe because you know how to spell “McConaughey”) you MUST tell the story! I mean, he’s a Texas boy so it is very possible. And also, RWOR.

  26. 26
    Stef says:

    Re: Matthew – His brother, Rooster, lives in Midland and Matthew comes to play in golf tournaments with him once in a while.  They always have big dinners during golf tournaments, which Mike guilts me into going to.  During cocktails, Matthew showed up and all the women went nuts, crowding around, begging for an autopgraph – generally drooling, etc.  I’m one of those who doesn’t do that, so Mike and I sat down at a table far away from the crowd.  Within a few minutes, Rooster and his wife came to sit with us…and lo and behold, within a couple more minutes, Matthew came and sat at the table.  (round, with 10 places)

    He’s a west Texas boy, so it wasn’t all that big of a deal.  This was post-bongos, however, and I kept imagining him naked, with bongos. 

    BTW, Matthew got all the good lookin’ genes – poor Rooster.  Let’s just say, he lives up to his name.  He’s a red-faced, corpulent man who drinks too much – but is funny.  Oh, and he sells oilfield pipe for a living.  Those guys are like a different breed.

    Matthew is a nice boy.  Rooster acts like he’s the ‘big guy’ in the family.  He doesn’t treat Matthew as though he’s a huge star – he’s just his bro.
