Beautiful Blogger- 7 tidbits about me

This is kind of a bizarre award seeing how yesterday's post was about my weight and fresh out of bed face. I don't know if that means Krysten from "After 'I Do'" needs glasses or is delusional, but either way- thank you, Krysten! :)

So with any award there are rules. I have to list 7 things about me and pass this onto another blogger. Now my first inclination was to write things that would be borderline TMI. Which is what I'm doing because as you all know, my gut has never failed me. Well, except for the time that I thought kayaking was going to be awesome. But, if you are a family member or you feel like you don't need to know a lot of bizarre and personal stuff about me---STOP READING NOW. You've been warned. :)

1. I lost my virginity at age 17 to a guy who told me he was a virgin (which he totally wasn't in hindsight) to Nine Inch Nails' "The Great Below". It was October, and it lasted literally, not even 5 minutes because his brother knocked on the door. Nice. The bad experiences with him, my rebound, and Matt have all made me somewhat of an insecure prude in this area. Which is a shame, because it's not what I want to be. BUT, I once had sex in a park. At night. Where there is now a skate park. ;)

2. I have only had 2 major relationships (first being guy in #1 and the second being Matt) and one 2 week rebound that was a nightmare and got me a crazy ex-girlfriend stalker for awhile. Not my proudest moment.

3. My son, Jackson, is what we'd call an "oopsy" baby. Matt and I were trying for baby #2, but then all shit hit the fan and the same week I was consulting a divorce attorney I found out I was almost 3 months pregnant. Fast forward to now and I still don't know if I made the right decision.

4. When I was growing up I really wanted to either be a geologist, astronomer or a DJ. The first two apparently require a lot of math (which I suck at) and it's not like you see those jobs just floating in the paper. I didn't go to be a DJ because everybody told me that girls can't be DJ's and so I went to school to be a....secretary!...

5. ...which is ok because as all the people who know me in real life know that I'm a little OCD. Like not enough OCD to need medication and/or counseling, but enough to drive some people nuts. I like organizing, which is 90% of a secretary's job, and I like office supplies. Going to an office supply store is like going to a computer, hardware, or sex toy store for men.

6. I am a sucker for romance. Like major sucker. How I ended up with Matt who's idea of romance is moving my car to the other side of the street so I don't get a ticket, is beyond me. He had potential, I tell you. I totally failed. And part of me thinks that maybe Matt is as good as it gets. I mean, he does clean up pee, poop, and puke because I am completely incapable of it. And what happens if Matt and I separate? Are there really guys out there that are romantic? That actually adore their significant other? And show it? Probably not. But I'm still a sucker for it.

7. I think that the coolest thing EVER is mix cd's. I love getting mix cd's from people (in the mail because I love mail). I love listening to them especially if I know why these particular songs were put together in a cd for me. But I love music, so pretty much anything music related given to me will make me a loyal and dedicated friend. :)

*BONUS* (because I? Am fabulous like are some that are more TMI)

1. Love watching porn with a guy. Like a guy I'm in a relationship with, obviously.

2. I keep my hair short so I give it the "just had a little romp in the bed" look.

3. I've kissed a girl. Twice. With tongue.

4. Would love to wear hooker boots. Just once.

5. Prefer to have sex with music. Varying from slow to fast songs.

6. Never had a one night stand but always wanted to. Just once. Safely. Obviously.

7. Ponder the merits of having an "open marriage" frequently.

OK- enough yet? :) If you missed an early post of questions I got from a fellow blogger, click HERE. If you have questions you'd like me to answer either comment here or shoot me an email at: I'll make a post in the future with the Q & A's and if you don't want your name mentioned, LET ME KNOW otherwise it'll be out there. ;)

So to pass it this onto another blogger. Hmmm.. I have so many that I love but because Mr. O passed an award onto me this week, I'm going to in return pass one on to him.

Oh my gosh. Your answers totally make me smile. And I so can't have sex with music. Because when I lost my virginity, my then boyfriend (now ex) was making me listen to The Moody Blues. Who I hate. Totally wrecked having sex with the music on for me. Damn Moody Blues.

G said...

I'm with you on the porn! I thinke veryone is they just don't want to admit it

Sam said...

So...I figured...what the hell! I want to almost know too much about you! I was curious to see, if alot of my answers would have been close would yours be to mine? So I read on...I had a brief yearning to be an astronomer, until I bought a book and realized I just wanted to look at the pictures. I once watched a show with the hottest female DJ I have ever seen...Im gay, so that adds to numerous kisses/crazy ex'girlfriends...I am uber OCD, pretty much orgasm in OfficeMax...I like romance book but don't read much of them because it makes me realize how un-romantic the significant others are not...mixed cd's...I love making them...I like all types of music...would love to make cd's for people who actually like them, as opposed to said significant others...I have my hair medium length, long enough to throw in a pony tail but short enough to not feel like an old Indian woman. So...are we related? :)

Sara Strand said...

@Krysten- The Moody Fucking Blues?? Are you kidding me? What kind of guy puts the Moody Blues on for sex? I like me some Moody Blues but dang. Not for sex. :)

@MODG- I agree. What the big deal about it is I have no idea. Porn is awesome. And if I can't find a good comedy at the store, porn is the next best thing.

@Sam- I love you. We obviously are related. We kind of look alike too. My mom swears she only birthed two kids and both are accounted for. Hmm...

Steph said...

I think about having an open marriage and I'm not even married...Strange.

I can't stand music or TV during sex. Too bad the guy I'm seeing always insists on putting the TV on one of those music channels showing all the factoids and stuff.

Sara Strand said...

@Steph- at least it isn't a Billy Mays infomercial. ;)

Chanel said...

hahaha I'm a sucker for romance as well. It's all the media's fault!!! I love sex with music.! it's relaxing. especially following a glass of long island iced tea! Oh, and I've kissed a girl too. with tongue. in fact...I'm getting married to one. (this year) hehehe

Eva said...

Congrats on the award. I enjoyed reading the things about you. Quite devious at times :)

Good stuff though. We all have choices we wonder about down the road. I know I certainly do.

Anyway, I was looking at your sidebar. Counting down minutes for Eclipse and True Blood. Is it June yet??? No... bummer.

Danielle said...

Sara I just LOVE your blog! These are HILARIOUS facts about you! Your virginity story is sooo funny! I feel like everyone has some sort of akwardness in their story! Mine was akward because in fact we were both virgins and other than knowing where to stick it no one knew anything else! haha! xoxoxo

Ann said...

Shit, you weren't kidding about bizarre and personal stuff! Thank God you didn't pass that award on to me, 'cause you can be damn sure I'm not revealing that much shit about myself! Hahahaha!!!!

Christina Harper said...

First of all, kudos for your blog title. "Organized chaos" and "world domination" gets you at least 1250 points in my book.

Secondly, mixed CDs are, by far, the coolest things since the mixed tape. But nothing beats the beauty of cassette tapes. That's effort, ya know?

cindy said...

Okay, I just found you from "get sketchy" and I am glad I did. Hilarious!! I'll be back.... "said in my best Terminator voice".

Mr O said...

I don't think I ever said thanks for this award, but THANKS!

And also, a thank you for saying you watch porn. That was awesome to read.

Julie H said...

I think we should be best friends. I'd eat all the vegetables on your plate.
