Gangster's Paradise - tagged

So Captain Strange & I am strong Adrienne tagged me to mention 10 [only 10?!] random things about me.

1. I have Brady Bunch checks. Marsha. Marsha. Marsha.

2. I own three watches. Only two tell time [of day].

3. I love hamburgers.
Favorite: the grind.
Least favorite: burger king

4. I do all my grocery shopping from right to left. No matter which store. Start right end at left.

5. If given an option, I will always use "self-checkout". I mean who could pack my groceries better than me?!

6. I hate [truly hate] valet parking. I will walk 1/2 mile in 5" heels before using a valet. No joke.

7. It took me until my sophomore year in high school to consistently spell licorish [ wait] "licorice" correctly.

8. I think Eminem is more inspiring than Yanni.

9. I had my photo taken with Coolio. [in 1996] Yep, livin' in a "gangsters paradise".

Now, my friends, THAT is one short dude.

10. Favorite songs to blast from my juke box...... "September" [earth,wind & fire] & "Rich Girl" [Hall & Oats].

And now.....

TAG - you are IT, IT, IT.

1.  Kera - that's a no brainer.  I love this woman.
2.  Kelly - Still have a room for me, right?!
3.  Angie - Who may I add, is running St. George Marathon October 2nd!

No joke - when I check out at the grocery store, I pull things out of the cart and place them on the belt in the order they should be bagged. I am sure nobody notices this.

Emz said...

This cracked me up.
When I can't bag my own - that's WHAT I Do too.

OMGosh - I'm like Jamoosh?! I'm Mooshy too?!

Anna Walker said...

AW. Ha I like your answers! I am not a fan of self checkout, I am always afraid that If I take too long in any grocery line, I will have people made at me.

Patrick Mahoney said...

It's interesting how Burger King edged out McDonald's for the bottom spot. I wouldn't have expected that.

Marlene said...

I LOVE self-checkout!!! I love to see how many produce codes I can memorize and how fast I can scan/bag. ;)

Emz said...

P-processed over flame brolied . . all day - EVERY day.

M-OMGosh. Your comment killed me. You WIN OCD blogger of the day. ;)

Quinton J said...

I've been offered a job at the grocery store based on my self-checkout skillz.

September EW&F blasted...nice.

Jill said...

I do my grocery shopping from right to left, too, and like you and Jamoosh, stack my items by how they go into the bag on the belt. We're just all cool like that!!! :)

Silly Girl Running said...

I ALWAYS shop from left to right, and I bag the way Jamoosh does. Does this make us all nutcases?

Oh, and if I need 7 times one item, I would rather take eight. The same goes for 4 (rather take 3 or 5). Now, that's really weird isn't it?

Kovas Palubinskas said...

All the above people are strange. I pull up to the valet parking at the grocery store, my personal shopper brings me a drink while my order is picked, bagged, and paid for, and then I'm wheeled out to my waiting car by the massuse. Where do you all shop, anyway?

ShutUpandRun said...

I cheat at the self checkout. 15 items? Doesn't apply to me. I shove up to 35 in those four little bags.

What do you mean? Yanni is hot! And dude can play some synthesizers!

misszippy said...

I hate self-checkout! Inevitably, I'll have at least one item that won't scan or that I can't find on the produce list and then, bam, I'm stuck waiting for help.

Dissin' Yanni--come on! ; )

Matty O said...

where to start...

1. Rich Girl, when I hear it on the radio, windows down (even in the winter) and crank it and I scream-sing it. True story.

2. Eminem, by far my favorite artist to run to. When I hear his songs the blood pumps, HR jumps, and I am gone.

3. Coolio... one hit wonder what?! I remember seeing pics of him and thinking the same thing, shorty!

4. Hate self checkout... I can't bag my groceries. H however, man is she a machine, she has me putting boxes together, cold stuff together and all in the order they should be bagged blah blah blah. You would think after being married for years and doing all of our grocery shopping TOGETHER that I would know how to unload the cart by now on the conveyor... NOPE. Apparently bread should not hit the belt FIRST!

5. I knew why I liked you... I only like girls that like burgers. True story. HAHA!

Loved the info thanks for sharing! Why did I put my comments in a list??? Well it seemed like the thing to do... right?!

Laurie said...

All you right to left grocery shoppers have it backwards... you walk in the store and start on the left so that when you finish you can hit up the frozen foods then the self checkout. Tell you what though, Kovas has shopping down to an art, he can do my grocery shopping any day.

Who's Yanni? ha ha, just kidding. Definitely agree, though Eminem much more inspiring, although if I had to listen to Yanni while running, I'd probably run faster to get it over with.

Emz said...

Kovas - lazy butt.

Matty-O - I must meet H. OKay you too but . . .the more I get to "know" her through You --- she's a total keeper. :)

Laurie - never thought of Yanni like that - you may be on to something!

Mmmm I love hamburgers too, now I'm wishing for one.

aron said...

DRog said...

Angie said...

Ok- fine- but what exactly do I have to do? Yes, I know, I'm an idiot.

Angie said...

nvrmind- got it. Tomorrow.

Her Name is Rio said...

That's so funny. I usually avoid self check out because when I do, the machine breaks down, or there needs to be a price check...never fails. I do, however, also put my groceries on the belt in the order I think they should be bagged. you know..cold things with cold, etc. Glad I'm not the only one trying to control their bagging situation. LOL!

Carrie said...

I LOVE listening to Eminem as my first song on a treadmill run. There is just something about his music that pumps me up to take on that torture machine and make it MINE!!!

Pam said...

I REFUSE to use self-checkout. If they want to give me a discount, then I'll use it. But until they pay me what they are NOT having to pay a cashier to scan my stuff, I will stand my happy ass in line.

Emz said...

Pam - loving that! No self checkout at the post office, ehh?! ;) you're awesome.

Julie said...

I will use the self check out only if I have a few easy things to scan. I usually end up waiting for the cashier anyway because it tells me I didn't actually bag an item when I really did! I drives me bonkers!

Adrienne said...

My apologies to all who are behind me in any grocery store. Yes I'm the one with 2 full carts and 4 little crying kids asking "Can I have that?, Can I have that?, Can I have that?"

Why no valet? It's awesome.

Kovas where did you find your personal shopper? I need one ASAP!

Johann said...

I live in Gangster's Paradise. Gauteng Province where I live is known here in SA as Gangster's Paradise.

Molly said...

I get a lot of inspiration from Eminem! Got a line of his on my blog sidebar...

Kenley said...

HAHAHA, I do the same - right to left! Cool list. I also have 3 watches, which 2 of them do tell time. Have a good one.
