it’s not easy being green

There was a time I used to crank out posts every other day, but now I’m only managing one a week. Brain? Hello? Are you in there? Your presence is requested on the poop deck. Need all hands on board. We’re wading through some serious shit up here.  I’ve been a little preoccupied lately with family trips, drama, and personal issues. (Oh my!) But don’t worry, I’m not planning on boring y’all to tears and telling you about it. If I were you, I wouldn’t give a crap(even though you’re all probably too nice to say that.) So…you’re welcome.

I saw this questionnaire floating around a few weeks ago, and thought it would be fun to fill out. They are questions you don’t see very often, which is a lot nicer than the standard “why do you write?”  “what’s your favorite hobby?” cliche ones. I don’t remember who came up with these questions, so if it was you, let me know and I’ll add you to the post! If you decide to answer the same questions, make sure you let me know in the comments so I can come check it out.

What female celebrity do you wish was your sister?
Jennifer Lawrence. Have you ever seen this chick do an interview? She is absolutely hilarious.

What would you name your daughter if you had one?
My favorite girl’s name right now is Elia. (Yes, from Game of Thrones) Alex has already put the kabosh on that name sadly. I’m going to try to push it again when the time comes.

What would you name your son if you had one?
Cade. I heard it on a TV show recently and added it to my list! (I have a list of baby names to one day use. Judge me all you want, jerks.)

What was your favorite TV show when you were a child?
Chip and Dale Rescue Rangers. I actually watch them on YouTube sometimes still. They never get old. Also, Gummi Bears. Anyone remember that one? (Bouncing here and there and everywhere!)

What did you dress up as on Halloween when you were eight?
A cat. Every year. I was such a boring, sheltered kid.

Have you read any of the Harry Potter, Hunger Games or Twilight series?
Yes, all of the above. Most of these are excusable except Harry Potter! Go read it, or we can’t be friends. Seriously. This isn’t a laughing matter. This shit is important.

Do you know who Kermit the frog is?
Is this serious? Who doesn’t know who Kermit is? I’m guessing you were also robbed of the joys of Kool-Aid and Pogs as a young kid.

Have you ever been to Olive Garden?
I could live off their breadsticks. (I’m not drooling, you’re drooling) If you’ve never had their breadsticks, you’re not living life to its fullest.

What would your parents have named you if you were the opposite gender?
I was going to be named Blair either way. Woo!

If you have a nickname, what is it?
I have nicknames from everyone. It’s funny, I RARELY hear my actual name unless it’s from my husband’s side of the family. Alex calls me B, my sister and her husband/kids call me Beep, my parents and brother call me PDQ. My friends call me Beech. They all have back stories besides the ‘B,’ because that’s what my name starts with. Obviously.

Would you rather live in a rural area or in the suburbs?
Rural, hands down. I live in the suburbs now and I hate it. People… gross.

Where did you buy your jeans?
The ones I’m wearing? Old Navy. I buy most my jeans there or JCPenney. They seem to have the best deals and I like the way they fit. I’m not exactly the classiest clothes buyer – I just go for comfort. I wear a solid t-shirt and jeans basically every day of my life. I’m boring as hell.

How old were you when you found out that Santa wasn’t real?
In first grade, sadly. So I think six? Some kid said it in the classroom and the teacher confirmed he was right. My mom was so pissed she called the school and complained. Six is too young to lose your belief. It’s a cruel, cruel world we live in.


-Pick one(or more, if you want) and answer below! That we can get to know each other better. Don’t you want to get more close and personal with me? I know you do.


  1. I hope things have improved on your end.

    My question: What celebrity do you wish was your sister. Julianna Hough.. She’s stylish, also blond, can up my dance and fitness game, and ummm besties with Nina Dobrev, and bonus has a hottie for a hubby. Yeah win win all the way around.

    Loved these questions… still trying to pick a quintessential childhood TV show… I can think of several cartoons/live action and others.. not that “1” that I say… OOOH I miss that. Those are more as adult… can we talk Felicity or Gilmore Girls or Miami Vice… yeah some quality TV.

    Hang in there Blair!

  2. I was a boy! I don’t know how they “knew” I was a boy, so my name was Christopher Michael. But then I was born and I was a girl. My parents didn’t have any girl names picked out. Ya think they would have just went with Christina Michelle or something like that. But no, at the time there was a movie star (or something) with the name Terre so they went with that. 🙂

    I hope you were kidding about the not being friends bit because I haven’t read any of those.

  3. Just some random comments on your answers, because I’m too lazy to actually go back and see what the questions were.
    Just yesterday my husband mentioned that it was the 30 something-th anniversary of the Gummi Bears. I don’t even remember that show existing. I did enjoy Chip and Dale. I should have my kids look that up. They love anything “vintage”. I have read The Hunger Games and Twilight, but only the first Harry Potter. Last summer I was tired of my kids not wanting to read. I knew everyone loved Harry Potter, so I thought it was worth a shot. The loved it! Which is bad for me because they want me to buy them million dollar outfits from Hot Topic now… I really enjoyed it to, so I should probably go read the rest…
    Anyway, I loved the two blogs I’ve read of yours so far and I’m excited to read some more. You seem like a kindred spirit.

    1. Blair (The Shameful Sheep) Author

      Thank you! Yes, please… read Harry Potter! Your kids know where it’s at 😀 See, I feel like most people have no idea what Gummi Bears was. Your husband is one of the lucky ones to know such wonders!

  4. I’ve missed you sheep! And I only know you as a series of structured electronic code. On writing: I stopped for a while. The reason I started writing again is that I just need to have a chat with the universe. My universe of followers loves me and I love them in an icky, creepy, uncomfortable sort of way. So your blogification allows you to communicate, without unwanted judgment to the raw naked universe. Peace be the Botendaddy
