The Post About Acting Someone Else's Age

DSC_2916 copy
asked last time if there was anything about you that reads a bit younger than you actually are? Since you were fairly quiet on the issue, I thought I would self-disclose the areas in which I struggle to be mature:

1. Nail polish. I have a hankering for black and I don't worship the devil.

2. My birthday. I still like to celebrate more than one day. I party on the day I arrive until the day I was scheduled to arrive - so a solid two weeks.

3. Celebrity Crush. One word:

4. Vacation with my parents.
I'm not afraid to share a car and a table at a cafeteria with my Mom and Pop. Grand Canyon 2010.

5. Decor. I do so enjoy the second floor of Urban Outfitters when needing design ideas.

6. Pranks. A night that ends with 500 forks in someone's yard is a good night.

7. My Father. I often call him "daddy," especially when I need a ladder or someone to underwrite my bills.

8. Pop Culture. I may obsess over such fare as Sonny with a Chance, the music of Selena Gomez and books categorized as Young Adult, such as Twilight, Harry Potter, etc.

9. Lunch. Peanut butter and jelly make for a delightful meal. If only there was kool-aid and a note in my sack.

10. Personality. Sarcasm will take 10 years off your life.

  1. For some reason I still think I can get away with the Poofy Ponytail and I am 37 years old.

  2. i don't plan on ever growing up. i think that's why i have so much fun. :)

  3. I am 36. My favorite genre of literature is Russian Novels. A 4 hour stint with the Brothers Karamazov would make me happy. But, alas, with two children that is now impossible. So....

    OK. I am a Harry Potter, Twilight AND Percy Jackson fan. There. I said it. Don't hate me. I used to have a brain...I promise.


  4. I'm a PB&J girl - best sandwich ever!

  5. Count me in the Subversive Nail Polish Group. I had my toes black metallic for the longest. I don't usually do my fingernails because it doesn't last, but I would probably go the same route.

  6. I do love me some Sonny With A Chance. I'll throw in some Phineas & Ferb for good measure too. :)

  7. 1. Any form of nail polish that is not standard I agree with! Particularly strange shades of teal, pale yellow, white, black, etc. I think it is my form of rebellion from my mom's not letting me use anything other than pink as a child.
    2. I seem to think that I can still pull off a good Paul Frank, sock monkey, or Curious George T-shirt even at 32. I try to grow up sometimes and stick with my otherwise adult wardrobe but I always come back to them.
    3. I have a badddd penchant for flannel pjs with embarrassing patterns on them. And wearing Christmas/holiday pjs is always permitted, right? I know, it's hot.
    4. Miley Cyrus. I like her, but I don't like to admit it.
    5. Children's books-I can't seem to buy enough. I say they are for my daughters, but we all really know who has the *problem.*

  8. MH: It's all about confidence :-)

    lms: That's a great approach... Let your fun flag fly high!

    A: Don't you feel better now that you've gotten that off your chest?

    J: Kindred spirits.

    KO: SNPG Forever!

    S: Demi Lovato had me at "Off to the races..."

    M: I'm all about the kooky PJs and who doesn't love some Shel Silverstein?

  9. Some would say that I prefer the gentlemen that are meant for the generation below me. I say that it's not my fault. I can't help it if the young ones think I'm hot.

  10. Oh gosh: Taylor Swift, dunking Oreos in milk, YA fiction, Harry Potter

  11. The only think I can think of is short shorts. I still think I can wear them and I do. Because that is the way I roll. Magnum PI short shorts not Dukes of Hazzard short shorts. Because Jamie would not approve.

  12. C: Rinse and repeat.

    K: Nice confession!

    J: I would not. I'm not 100% sure I approve of the Tom Selleck line of summer attire. I pick my battles.


Don't be afraid if I chase your rabbit comment...
