“Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.”
Because most readers of my blog don’t know me, personally, I wanted to share a little more about me – imperfections, madness and a whole lot of ridiculous. Feel free to post your own answers in the comments. Or repost the survey on your blog or Facebook so I can learn more about you! I saw this on coolrunningjourney. Thanks for the idea, Lauren!
1. Are you named after anyone?
Technically, my mom – she’s Lynn Marie, I’m Lindsay Marie. My dad always wanted to name me Heidi but, when I was born, my mom didn’t think I looked like a Heidi (um, don’t all babies kinda look the same?) so they asked the woman down the hall what they named their daughter…maybe that’s why I was one of about 10 Lindsays in my graduating class! #notoriginal
2. When was the last time you cried?
I teared up this past Sunday night. We had to take Blitz (our black lab) to the emergency vet because she was throwing up and miserable. I felt so bad for her, I could barely stand it.
3. Do you have kids?
No but I have two furry babies I love as if they were my children.
4. If you were another person would you be a friend of yourself?
Definitely! Though I’d probably get a little annoyed with all the perkiness and positivity from time to time.
5. Do you use sarcasm a lot?
Never…(insert heavy sarcasm).
6. Will you ever bungee jump?
I doubt it, I’d rather skydive.
7. What’s your favorite cereal?
This is so hard to decide because cereal is my favorite food! If I’m training for a race, I love a good bowl of Frosted Mini-Wheats post-long run. But for every day, I love the basics like Special K, Rice Chex and Cheerios.
8. What’s the first thing you notice about other people?
Shoes. When I first met Chris, we were inside, at a party, so I actually noticed his socks, which featured bright colors and polka dots. Knew he was a keeper.
9. What is your eye color?
10. Scary movie or happy endings?
I love scary movies – ones that are suspenseful, not overly gory and violent.
11. Fav smells?
“Fall” smells like vanilla and pumpkin. Coffee too.
12. Summer or winter?
I’d rather be cold than too hot, especially when running, and I love snow – so the easy answer is winter. But more so, I love the changing of seasons.
13. Computer or TV?
I like watching sports and mindless reruns of old shows, mostly in the background while I’m doing other stuff – right now, I have on the Golden Girls!
14. What’s the furthest you’ve ever been from home?
Last year, five of my girlfriends and I went to the Dominican Republic to celebrate us all turning 30. One of the best vacations ever!
15. Do you have any special talents?
I like to think I have talents but nothing out of the ordinary.
16. Where were you born?
Fargo, ND – born and raised!
17. What are your hobbies?
Running, lifting, trying out new workouts, writing, playing sports, watching sports, fantasy sports, spending time at the lake and being with friends.
18. Do you have any pets?
A 3-year-old Bug named Burton and a 6-year-old Lab named Blitz. Love them!
19. Favorite movie?
The Goonies, hands down, best movie ever.
20. Do you have any siblings?
Do I ever – five brothers. Boy, did they keep things interesting growing up! As I’ve gotten older and some of them have married, we finally have some girls to balance out the obnoxious levels of testosterone.
21. What do you want to be when you grow up?
Well, since I’m 31 going on 62, I’d say sometimes I’m too grown up for my own good ha ha! It sounds simple, but John Winston (Ono) Lennon said it best,
“When I was five years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they told me to write down what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy.’ They told me I didn’t understand the assignment and I told them they didn’t understand life.”
