Hello, It’s Me

As Rory continues to amass his dossiers on us, I for one am happy to provide loads of juicy info for his future blackmail schemes. How about you?

Secret agents

1. What makes you laugh, as in really laugh hard?

Unexpected humor is the best. I love to be caught off-guard by someone making a wordplay in the middle of a conversation. That just cracks me up, especially if it pulls in a layered reference to a past event. I can be moved to tears by verbal silliness. One thing I particularly enjoy (though it isn’t spontaneous) is parody. When I watched this video the other day for the first time, I was literally LMAO!

2. What makes you really angry?

What doesn’t? That would be a shorter list. Idiots who blow through red lights and go way over the speed limit. Tailgaters. People who abuse children and pets. Racism and antisemitism. Leaf blowers. Litterbugs. Any repetitive beeping sound wtfff shut up!!!

People who refuse to take responsibility for their own feelings. Blamers, whiners, and bullies. Sulkers and pouters. But also those who scream endlessly. Stalkers. Narcissists. Compulsive liars. Yes, I could have just said men on dating sites. 🙄

3. Who knows you the best?

My daughters probably know me best of all, but no one knows the real me. There’s a blogger (inactive now) whom I’ve never met in person, but when we were hanging out online she was great at understanding what I meant. I sometimes write obscurely and she would translate for the masses. (I’m better at writing clearly than I used to be.) My ex-husband also could translate my thoughts for me way back when. It’s nice to feel understood, without having to explain 27 different ways before someone goes “oh I see,” and then you wonder if they’re just being polite. These two somehow tapped into the way my mind worked regarding conceptual thought, and that was very cool.

But that’s just one aspect of a person, how they think about concepts. It’s important, granted, but there are other things, needs, values, dreams, goals, humor, etc. I used to be more “branded” with stuff like cupcakes and shoes and favorite novels and ways of expressing myself, so that it was easier for people to predict what I might say. But I became too bored with all that, even if it’s ideal for an online presence. Some people know a few facets of me well, and a few (my daughters) know many… but there are some no one knows, maybe not even me.

  3. No one knows me either Paula. I’m very different to how some might interpret me!

  5. Thanks for the Holderness Family video. I haven’t seen that one but they are hysterical!
    My daughters know me best too, but differently. They know different parts, if that makes sense.

    • Yes, same here… love to have heart to heart chats with them about different things.

      I forgot that the Holderness Fam did the “All About That Baste” parody! Hope you caught that one… hysterical! ❤️

      • I hadn’t seen it, but I just looked it up. Wow! The kids are so young…
        Here’s a recent one I had to share with Ben’s mom. She loves the PSL…me, not so much…

      • Ooh i love that! So funny. I’m not into the pumpkin flavored drinks either though I love pumpkin muffins and pie (with graham cracker crust!).

        His Billy Joel tribute to her came up. Maybe they’re just acting but it looked real and made me cry, as if there is at least one incredible husband out there who really adores his wife and isn’t afraid to let the world know.


      • I looked that one up too…😭 They ham it up a bit but I believe they’re a real family.
        May they continue to be blessed!🙏
