Have You Ever

Copy & Paste the Meme, delete my answers & fill in your own :o) Straightforward & Simple. Thanks to Carina for tagging me, I love to play along.

1. Have you ever been on TV?

Yes I have, a number of times actually. I was on once in 3rd grade for the Variety Club Tel-a-thon where I represented my class/school and gave our donations live (I remember wearing a pretty pink silky 2 pc suit), I was on for various volunteer things at the Ki-Low-Na Friendship Society (always a source for news in K-town as it's right down the street from the local News Station), and a few times while I was participating in the Kelowna Lady of the Lake Beauty Pageant.

2. Have you ever sung in public?
Plenty...I have a few people who will tell you stories of me singing at the drop of a dime (both drunken & sober) in public in my youth because I loved to sing (and was fairly decent I might add). I used singing as my talent in the aforementioned pageant singing Janet Jackson's Together Again. In my later years I did plenty of Kareoke, but it's been a while, now I mainly sing for my boys and leave it at that.

3. Have you ever dyed your hair blond?
Yes.Though it was mostly small streaks that combined to make my whole mop look blonde. I really only do it when I feel like a big change cause it takes forever to grow out.

4. Have you ever eaten frogs' legs?
No, I prefer to play with my frogs rather than eat them.

5. Have you ever received a present that you really hated?
Yes. I'm married, and I'm a mom. It happens. I'm gracious though, and I will use said gift whether I like it or not. I don't like to hurt people's feelings that way.

6. Have you ever walked into a lamp post?
Plenty...and if you want to know if I've ever done it in an embaressing situation the answer is yes as well. Picture me tryin to be all sexy and chattin with a someone and *BLAM*, there she topples. That's me. Or, have you ever had your hands full of multiple bags, baby and older child trying to make it through an icy parking lot and walk into a light post?? I have.

7. Have you ever cooked a meal by yourself for more than 15 people?
Yes, it's called Canada Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas. I love my family, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

8. Have you ever fallen or stumbled in front of others?
Yup, I recall slipping in my 7 inch heels on the stage during my final promenade and presentation at the LotL pageant Finale.

9. Have you ever done volunteer work?
I'm a Volunteer-aholic. I prefer to donate my time rather than earn money. It's so much more satisfying. That's why I need to be rich. Seriously though, with each hour I donate I know i'm making a difference to someone, no matter what it is that I'm doing.

Tagging anyone who wants to play :o)

Being a volunteer is awesome.

I have never cooked for more than 8 people. LOL! I wouldn't know what the heck to do if I had to. I'm not good on judging amounts.
