The Bottom Line Wow, my very first write-off! Thought I'd start with a topic I actually know something about...

This write-off is hosted by Sarahlovesadam.

Height: 5'10"

Eye color: Blue

Hair color: Blonde-turning-brown

What does your name mean: "Christian"

High school graduation year: 1997

Favorite relatives: My husband and daughter

Summer memory: Ah, those never-ending weeks at BAND CAMP, marching drills and being yelled at in rehearsal and standing around in the sun all day till people started keeling over from the heat...those were the days.

Favorite TV shows: The Simpsons, Mythbusters, Survivor, American Idol, Boston Public

What's on your mousepad: A floofy yellow duckling

In the car- ac or windows: Usually A/C...although on an exceptionally pleasant day I'll sacrifice my hair to the frizzies and roll all the windows down instead.

Do you believe in yourself: No. I am a figment of my own imagination...

Favorite game: Cranium

Favorite drink: Plain old water...although I wouldn't say no to a nice frozen margarita!

Favorite food: All things horribly bad and tasty - chocolate, pizza, fettucini alfredo - the list goes on and on.

Favorite colors: My favorite color is 'clear'.

Favorite cigarettes: The kind that are kept far, far away from me...

Favorite sounds: Nothing like rain on a tin roof...

Favorite smell: Newly cut grass, fresh air after a long rain, most anything baking

Favorite thing to do on a weekend: Sleep; avoid housework like the plague

Favorite soundtrack: Forrest Gump

Where do you see yourself in 10 years: Right here - home and family, maybe with another little one (or two!) I'd like to finish my degree in elementary education eventually, but not till after all my babies start school - they come first.

First thought in the morning: Doesn't usually occur until sometime after lunch. Prior to that, I function on mommy-autopilot.

Do you get motion sickness: Only on long trips in the back seat - ugh!

Rollercoasters- deadly or exciting: EXCITING!

How many rings before you answer the phone: As soon as I can figure out where my husband left the darn thing and check the caller ID - to see if I want to answer it at all!

Are you a good friend: I've never been told otherwise...

Chocolate or Vanilla cake: Oddly, vanilla.

What do you drive: A silver 2002 Pontiac Grand Am

Do you sleep with a stuffed animal: Sure do, I can't sleep without Duck.

Thunderstorms cool or scary: Cool - as long as I'm not home alone. I'm a bit of a weenie that way.

If you could meet one person in the World, who would it
In the world meaning tangible and currently alive...oh to heck with pride, gimme Toby Keith!

What is your zodiac sign: Gemini

What do you wear to bed: Whatever is clean, comfortable and handy - usually a big t-shirt, sometimes real matching pajamas.

Do you eat stems of broccoli: Only if they're cooked...

Guys- If a girl ever asked you for the shirt on your back, would you give it to her? N/A
Girls- Would you ever ask a guy for his shirt? Nope. I'd just steal it from his closet when he wasn't looking...

If you could have any occupation when you get older, what would it be: Elementary school teacher. No, high school. I can't decide which is worse, er, better.

If you could dye your hair one color, what would it be: I always wished I had the nerve to dye it burgundy, but I just don't. My husband is pulling for black, but he doesn't understand that I would look oddly like Morticia Addams with black hair...

If you could have a tattoo, what and where would it be: Don't want and wouldn't have one...although tattooing 'Xavier Roberts' on my backside would be fun.

Favorite brand of gum: Dentyne Fire

What is your favorite quote: "A woman is the most fiendish instrument of torture ever devised to bedevil the days of man." (from the movie O Brother, Where Art Thou?)

Have you ever been in love: Yes

What's on your walls in your room: Blue paint that took me forever and a day to 'rag' onto the walls before discovering that they make real honest-to-goodness sponges that achieve the same effect. Bugger.

Is the glass half-empty or half-full: That depends - what's in the glass? If it's something nasty, then it's probably half-full 'cause I ain't drinking it...

Which do you prefer- Cool Ranch or Nacho Cheese Doritos: The cheesier, the better!

Favorite flavor Snapple: I haven't drank enough to even recall the flavors...

Which one, Coke or Pepsi: Coke. Hey, whatever happened to Fresca? I've been craving that stuff for weeks...

Which kind of milk is your favorite:'s all the same to me.

If you were to kill someone, which method would you use? Arsenic. I think I remember reading that it's untraceable in the human digestive tract...

Are you a righty, lefty, or ambidextrous: Righty. I tried to be a lefty like my dad, but my mom sabotaged my efforts by switching things from my left hand to my right at an early age. She said she couldn't live with two people that couldn't spread peanut butter properly.

Do you type with your fingers on the right keys: Q hrnefxog syufrhee. (Actually yes, I do.)

When you meet a person of the opposite sex, you notice
Are they facing me? Oh. Okay, his smile then.

What's under your bed: A large and ferocious colony of dust bunnies that demands utter privacy - thus, I never disturb them for fear of losing a digit.

What's the best number in the World: 13

What is your dream car: Sadly, a Dodge Durango. Anyone seen the price tag on those bad boys?

Who is your biggest crush right now: Toby Keith is a stud, but I have a strange obsession with Alan Rickman's a toss-up. Oh, and my husband is a sweetie as well.

Nickname: Krissin, for those who are too lazy to pronounce the T.

School: Formerly Longwood College.

Bacon Bits Or croutons: Croutons

Favorite Salad Dressing: Ranch

Do you Drink: Veeeerrry rarely. VERY. And since I'm a girly-drink-only person, it affords even fewer opportunities.

What type of Shampoo/Conditioner: Pantene

Have you ever been skinny dipping: No. I've never disliked anyone enough.

Do you make fun of people: I plead the Fifth and wish to speak to my attorney...

Have you ever been convicted of a crime: No. Petty speeding tickets only.

One pillow or two: Two - under my head. And more in other random places.

Pets: Down to just one fishy, Sashimi.

Favorite Movies: Dirty Dancing, Pretty Woman, 10 Things I Hate About You, The Lion King, Varsity Blues, Blow Dry, Ali

Favorite type of music: No real favorite - I listen to bits of everything except rap.

Hobbies: I'm an Internet junkie which (combined with being a wife and mother) leaves virtually no time for anything else.

Word or Phrase you overuse: Whatever. Fine. Sure. Various other snarky one-word answers.

Toothpaste: Yes, please. I love variety and buy something new just about every time - usually Crest, but they have fifty-something different kinds now, don't they?

Piercing or tattoos: Pierced ears and that's IT for me...

Do you get along with your parents: Dad, always; mom, usually. She's going through her second childhood of sorts - I'm the bad parent now, and she the rebellious teenager. MUCH annoying.

Favorite beer: NONE of it - can't stand the taste. *gags*

Favorite song at the moment: "There Goes My Life" by Kenny Chesney. "Long Black Train" by Josh Turner. "Backseat of a Greyhound Bus", some country chick (Sara Evans?)

Most humiliating moment: Having my dad visit me in the hospital when my daughter was born - my dear sweet husband had a grand time saying the word "breast" as many times as possible in his presence. I eventually lost count, but rest assured it was more than twenty-three.

Favorite Holiday: Thanksgiving - all the food and family with none of the gift-giving stress!
