10 Things You Don't Know About Me

Thanks to Mz. Jackson, I have been tagged to tell you 10 things about myself that you don't know. Well, Julie might know a couple. She also had a couple of suggestions but most of them would get me into trouble. Here we go:

10. I used to blog under the name "Shellubra" (nick name Shell). Had that one for a while but life got to a complicated point and I had to quit. I got that name while working on the set of "Nonnie and Alex". Five of us were out filling up the cars for the next day and we pulled into a service station. On the wall someone had written "Shell Lubrification" in huge, really crappy orange spray painted letters. The other occupants of the car all started cracking up. Somehow they all started calling me "Shellubra". Whatever ;)

9. I am really hoping that I can score some tickets today for the KROQ Weenie Roast. I will be in town that day and love me some Linkin Park. Oh and I need to find someone to go with as my husband would rather die than go to a show at Verizon.

8. I am an alumnus of Humboldt State University. I loved that place. Haven't been back in 9 years. My degree is in Liberal Studies with an emphasis on Radio, TV and Film. Maybe this explains some of my posts :) I chose the school as it was the furthest campus from my house with in-state tuition.

7. I cry every.single.motherhumping.time I hear "Proud To Be An American" by Lee Greenwood. I feel totally lame every time. First time I ever heard the song I was at one of those theaters in Branson, MO. Last time I heard it I was at my oldest child's D.A.R.E. graduation. Yeah, that was embarrassing.

6. I don't like cops. I really thought it was more of an authority figure thing but I've recently learned that it's just cops. I get all nervous and shaky around them. This too was embarrassing at my daughter's D.A.R.E. graduation. The cop prolly thought I was a junkie. I guess I've just known too many a-hole cops.

5. I was accused, in high school, of ransacking my best friend's house which I was supposed to be watching. I was watching it. Unfortunately I had to send my boyfriend over one night and he fucked my other friend at that house. Left many condoms behind. They apparently made some other messes too. It still pisses me off to this day that she never believed me and thought I would do that to her. We've never been friends since.

4. I was a cheerleader at Humboldt State. I was one of the oldest girls and could buy alcohol. We used to do shots at my house before we'd have to go to a game. Not very wise thinking on my part as I was the one they used to throw up in the air. Ah, to be young and stupid.

3. This is one of my favorite jobs I have had (I haven't had many. One included working at a Thighmaster booth in a mall.) in my short career. I got to go up in one of the planes. The man who took me up was Commander Rick Fessenden who was such a nice guy. I cried when I later found out he had been killed flying.

2. nevermind

1. I'll have to think on this one.

    Hey whatever happened to that boyfriend? I hope he ended up scraping grills at McDonald's, the asshole.

    I think I've been blogging too long to come up with 10 things.

    The only 10 things I could come up with for me would definitely get me in trouble. ;)

    Yeah, the smoking thing. You never get over it. As evidenced by the fact that after having quit for 4 years, I started back up. And don't really want to quit, but know that I need to.

    I don't like cops when they aren't influenced by my boobage. Then they suck.

    Congrats on quitting smoking! Something I think about each and every day.

    Verizon! What's wrong with Verizon?! What time do I pick you up? Yes - you DO get over the addiction.. I quit 15 years ago and after about 2 you do forget about them. Cheerleader, huh? Are those porno movies I saw back in the 80s about cheerleaders true?

    I hope that boyfriend got the drip.

    good 10! I've been tagged with this by somebody and can't think of 2 things. haha.

    P.S. I want to be a cop! lol

    The Killers, Social D, and Bad Religion! I am soooo at that Weenie Roast!

    Great list!

    Speaking of cops, I got pulled over for being on my cell phone without a headset a few weeks ago. Seriously, shouldn't they be focusing on the people robbing banks?

    Sorry to see your #6. There's a lot of good ones out there too.

    Gah! My wife is stalking me on the blogs I comment on! LOL

    Great list, Laurie! But you have to come up with a tenth, even if it's something weird like that thing you can do with your toes or the one piece of clothing you will never throw away (not that I know about either one - just guesses, really).


    PS: I'd totally go to that show too.

    Hey, I'm not trying to make you feel guilty. Just something to keep in mind. Let me know, I'll introduce you to some nice co-workers (yeah, I'm in law enforcement - civilian position). Have a good weekend!

    P.S. - Ian, I'm not stalking you dear. Pure coincidence.

    You did it again. But first - you smoked since you where 12 - that is discusting!!! I only started when I was 18.

    You worked on a movie? J e a l o u s. Been my dream since I was a small child to work on movies.

    Good for you for sticking to your quitting smoking. I don't feel I smoke enough to warrant quitting. (I generally only buy them when I go out drinking which is twice a month at most & if I smoke at all when I'm sober, I'm bumming cigarettes from someone. But man how I love my Parliament Lights. I'll probably be lifetime smoker.)

    Wtg on quitting and keep up the good work. I grew up with a 2-pack a day smoker and when he decided to quit, I thought he would kill us all. Hang in there, you can do it...

    I dropped out of blogging for a year or so. If not for this post I never would have associated a blogger from Orange County named Shellubra with one from Denver named Laurie.

    I went to Humboldt as well, circa 1983-1986. If I hadn't gone there I could never call myself a college dropout.

    Anyway- Cheerleader? You're making that shit up. When I was there the closest thing to cheerleaders was the kazoo wielding marching band doing drug or sex themed chants.
