I Enjoy Being a Girl Who Writes Google-age

Before we get going on today's post, a note about the last one. There's something you may not have realized yet about me, and that is that I like to complain. A lot. So when I'm whining - or "whinging," as Aly might say - about how much work keeping three blogs is, that may not be indicative of genuine unhappiness on my part. Is keeping three blogs up-to-date more work than keeping one? Yes. Is it enough that I want to shut them down? Not remotely. However, rest assured that if it starts interfering with my happiness and well-being, I will make some necessary changes.

Seriously, though? Y'all are so sweet to worry about me like you did. Makes me all warm and fuzzy inside.


Tense Teacher had an awesome meme this weekend that I'm now going to steal. Enjoy learning more about my life as one of the female persuasion.

What color is your bra?
Which one? I have about 15. If you mean the one I'm wearing now, it's a very boring off-white.

Do you straighten your hair everyday?
God straightened my hair at birth, so I don't have to do much to keep it that way.

Do you worry about the size of your boobs?
To quote Tense, "Who doesn’t?!" Generally, though, I think my boobs are actually one of my best physical features. You know, if you're into that sort of thing.

What’s your favorite girly magazine?:

Would you kill for chocolate?
Definitely not. I don't actually like chocolate that much.

Jeans or Skirts?
I miss wearing skirts with cute pumps...

Do you wear clothes/shoes/jewelry that’s uncomfortable?
I prefer not to, but I will if I love how it/they looks/look.

Did you ever spend all day/night getting pretty for a guy?
Yep. I don't really do that anymore, though. If I have to work that hard, this relationship is clearly not going to have a good future.

Did you ever cry during a romantic movie?:
I cry at the drop of a hat, so yes.

Would you leave the house without makeup on?:
Yes, but every time I do I feel insecure the whole time.

Do you consider making out “unladylike”?
Not in and of itself. I consider making out in some situations tacky and gross, but that's more about the circumstances than the act.

On a scale of 1-10, how fun is shopping?:
10! I love shopping!

Are you spoiled?
In some ways, yes. In others, not so much.

Do you think lip gloss is the best?:
The best? No, but it's pretty good stuff.

Do you freak out if you miss your favorite show?
I'll complain and whine (see above, wherein I explain that I do this all the time), but I won't "freak out."

Do you yell a lot?
Definitely not. In fact, I would say I rarely/never yell.

How long does it take you to get ready in the morning?
About 30 minutes normally, but if I'm pressed for time, I can make it work in 10-15.

Do you wear sweatpants/pajama pants to school/work?
Since I'm a nanny and I'm seen only by small children and/or parents on many days, I do sometimes wear sweatpants, yes. I do not, however, wear pajama pants. I would have to draw the line there.

Accessories make the outfit; true or false?
Depends on the outfit, obviously!

Is pink truly the best color in the entire universe?
No, definitely not. It's a good color, but not the best in the universe.

Lip gloss a must?:
For me, it's a must to have something on my lips, but it could just be clear lip balm and I'd be happy. Gloss and color are nice too, though.

Awake? Oh, you mean relationship status? Contentedly single. (For now.)

Have you ever dressed unlike yourself to impress a guy?
Yes, but it never lasted.

Do you often wish there were something you could change about yourself?
Sadly, yes.

Gold or silver?:
Silver, totally.

The guy that you like/love/whatever, what does his name begin with?
I like and love lots of guys, but I don't think any of them fulfill the spirit of this question.

Do you dress up too much for holidays?
Sometimes. Sometimes I under-dress.

Do you like wearing dresses?
Yes, especially if I have gorgeous shoes to wear with them!

Do you write a lot of mushy love poems?
I used to, but I think my poems have moved beyond the "mushy love" stage now. At least, I hope they have...

What makeup could you not live without?
Probably concealer to hide the bits of ugly that interrupt the hot.

Oh, I'm such a girl! If any other girly-girls out there want to steal, let me know so I can come read your answers.


I Spy...

Picture: me in my underwear - If your name is Joey Harrington, then trust me, I HAVE.

i can't stop looking up my mom's skirt - Let me give you a tip: Narnia was through a wardrobe, not an article IN a wardrobe.

high glamour porn feather boa - Ah, the high glamour porn boas. Not like those trashy knock-offs they sell at the dollar store.

i let her see me in my underwear - Have you heard from her since then? No? AW-kward...

what if my mom see me looking at porn? - I think the better question is: What if you see her IN the porn?

sexy men christmas screensaver - Nine months from now, I'll be ALL over that. Trust me.

How To...

how to grope a girl - Open your hand and slide it around in her general direction. Chances are good you'll get a grope in there somewhere.

how to eat an oreo cookie lesson plan - You need a lesson plan for how to eat an Oreo? You can't just take a bite? Or maybe you want to know how to eat a lesson plan that relates to Oreos? If that's the case, I think you still just take a bite. (Photo credit)

how to not lose things - Beats me. If I knew that, I wouldn't have to keep replacing my sunglasses every three months.

how to make a pictorial timeline of your life - Take pictures. Attach dates. Describe your life. The end.

how to give creadit to your children - Creadit? Is that some sort of flesh-eating virus? Why do you want to give your children a horrible flesh-eating virus?! What kind of parent ARE you?!

Ever Wonder...

what is google-age? - Well, it's this thing where I make fun of all the crazy search terms people use to get to my blog. You know, this thing you're reading. Right now.

should your purse match your shirt or coat? - Or your shoes? Or your face? No, wait, not that last one.

what does an education give you? - A headache. And maybe some knowledge about stuff.

can a younger sibling have a crush on an older brother? - Um, on any older brother? Yes. On his/her OWN younger brother? It's not advised.

do lawyers get to travel? - I'm pretty sure there's no law against it, but I guess I could be wrong.

how loose should slouchy boots be? - Loose enough to slouch. Otherwise they're not slouchy, are they, Mr. Know-It-All?

And the WTF?! for the week goes to:

sex guy girl dog - Um, WTF?!

Hope everyone has a great week!

Your best physical feature, of course, is your cute face.

Incidentally, the issue of whether Lara has an innie or outtie? Resolved. Guess you can do a lot of deep navel gazing with confidence.

Dude, I never leave the house without lip gloss. I learned that from David Bowie.

flutter said...

I just like you. You know?

Lara said...

flutter - do you LIKE me like me? ;)

Maggie said...

Excellent meme. And, as always, excellent google age. I seriously wonder what in the world people are thinking when they search for things...

Kennethwongsf said...

"Sex guy girl dog"? I hope this is not someone's perverted idea of a threesome.

Anonymous said...

I love that you called it whinging, haha. Awesome. :P

*pets you*

Though I always knew you were awesome.

ANA said...

Hahaha google-age hilarious. Lesson plan to eat an oreo cookie? tch tch tch people, but if it weren't for them how would I ever find fun in life?

Lindz said...

I like the meme but I feel it is very loaded towards the extremely girly girl. I may have to copy it anyways :)

BetteJo said...

Excellent google-age as usual. Not only is mine much more boring - but I could never respond to it so well!

I need a 'ghost google-age-er'

Lisa said...

I totally loved that meme, it was fun!!!! I'll steal it at some point... I've never seen it before so it was unique!
And for the record, I freakin' LOVE shoes. I've had to give up some of my cutest ones for comfort now that I am preggers and I miss them. Such a silly, girly thing to miss, but there it is.

Julie said...
