The Sounds and an About Meme

the sounds band

We’ve been infatuated with The Sounds lately and now I can’t get this song {below} out of my head. I know NONE of the lyrics but every time I hum it I think of the Geico commercial with the cavemen on the motorcycles… {which I have now included on my lower right sidebar} I heart Cavemen!

The awesomeness that is Liv, The Girl With The Big Brown Eyes tagged me with a Me Me.

Here are the rules:
1. Link to the person that tagged you (check)
2. Post the rules on your blog (check)
3. Share six non-important things/habits/quirks about yourself (see below : check)
4. Tag six random people at the end of your post by linking to their blogs
5. Let each random person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their website

1. I’m jealous of girls with pretty long eyelashes because mine are short, blonde, and stick straight out. Heating up my eyelash curler with the hair dryer works but is dangerous. I’ve burnt my eyelid before.

2. I used to collect ceramic masks with ribbons down the sides when I was pre-teen and into my teen years. I bet I still have {in a box somewhere} the ones that didn’t break in the 1994 earthquake.

3. No matter how hard I try, I have a serious case of ROAD RAGE when I drive in this city …mostly on the way to work. Who am I kidding? Driving anywhere.

4. When I was in the fourth grade, I broke my left pinky and ring finger. I was walking. And I tripped. And I landed on my hand.

5. I make fun of people with lisps. It’s not right. I am sorry. I {single-handedly *winkWink*} cured my brother of his when he was a wee boy. “It’s SSSSScott….not STHcott” I would repeat over and over …You’re welcome brother.

6. I was so angry on Tuesday morning that I kicked the cupboard with my foot and thought I broke it. …my foot, that is. It’s feeling better now so I’m pretty sure I’m not going to learn my lesson.

Tagging: Well, anyone who wants to play along!!! Then, come back here and tell ME you’ve MeMe’d yourself and I’ll go check you out 🙂 Cuz I make the rules!

    I also love The Sounds. And I have the same problem with eyelashes since I’m Asian. I saw in People that there’s a new heated eyelash curler made by Maybelline (I think?) and they sell it at Target. I was thinking about trying that.

    Love it.

    Love your freaking HAIR in your profile pic. I stupidly chopped mine off after I had my son. Now I’m obsessed with other people’s nice long hair, until mine grows out again.

    I promise I’ll go away after this, but I forgot that once I even got my eyelashes permed. It didn’t really work!

    I love the music for the Geico commercial when the caveman goes to the airport.

    I am rather obsessed with the song because of the Geico commercial (sad, but true that is where I first heard it!)

    Have you tried the double wanded mascaras – coat your lashes in white first (scary!!), then use the black wand and hey presto – Bambi lashes. If you can face 30 seconds of Albino chic, its awesome! Love your posts x

    I get even more annoyed by BOYS with pretty long curling eyelashes.

    Be careful with those curlers on your eyelashes.

    My key is I put mascara on and I blow dry them up with my blow dryer on the cold setting and wahla!

    i have short eyelashes as well. i’ve noticed that men have the prettiest, longest, most luscious eyelashes. its not fair. now that i’ve told you, you’ll start to notice this strange phenomenon.

    I have road rage too, but only when I am truly provoked.

    Your list made me laugh so hard! I’m so sorry to hear about your foot, though 🙁 That’s not cool!

    And number three… yeah, me too 🙂

    That is hilarious! Love this post. I am right there with you about the road rage thing. No matter what I do, I cannot help but become angry every time I drive ANYWHERE. There are just a bunch of very inconsiderate drivers out there. Seriously! Like no one else shares the road with them.

    (I’m also a kicker during my very, very angry moments…)

    God I thought I was the only one hiding my collection of 15 masks THAT EVERYONE GAVE ME AS A GIFT ONLY BECAUSE I SAID I LIKED THEM ONCE. Beware stating you like something unless you just have to have an instant collection.

    P.S. Can really relate to the road rage thing. Especially when people cut me off without using their signal. My particularly favorite word slips out even when my mother is in the car. She just gives me that “I can’t believe you just said that in front of me” look.

    long lashes – one grievance, now that i wear glasses (when i remember, or when i get nauseas, or when my husband brings them over and reminds me to wear them while reading), the lashes smear the lenses all the time, so i’m constantly having to take off the glasses and clean them. annoying.

    best cure for l.a. road rage is taking it to boston (they really don’t know what they’re doing). then move over to ny where it’s just fun (no lanes, no rules), and then back to l.a. and it will seem like the most civilized road you’ve ever been on.

    i think the primary purpose of the ’94 quake was to destroy those masks.

    and just to get you back for the lisp intolerance (i’ve been known to lisp on occasion), my lashes are loooooo-oooooong! :p
