stolen tag - redux


now a while back jmai posted a tag that she'd *stolen*!!! and she didn't tag anyone because well she stole it so she didn't really feel that she had the right. but she did absolve everyone who stole it from her of guilt... and i wanted to do it so the same rules apply as with hers:

You have $10 and need to buy snacks at a gas station; what do you buy?
.anything with a name i recognize, but considering the stores in the gas stations in toronto i'm going for the gold...
ruffles - plain or all dressed
or baked lays - sour cream and cheddar
or miss vickie's - garlic
red licorice
a bag of chocolate sin
a couple of pepperettes

If you had to be reincarnated as some sort of sea dwelling creature, what would you be?
.can i be an otter? if it has to be sea then i pick dolphins, because they play... but i pick otters first.

Who's your favorite redhead?
.i only know a couple of true redheads... i guess J the teacher at the studio i study at.

What do you order when you're at a pancake house?

Do you own any naughty toys?

Have you made out with anyone on your link list?
*looks at link list*
.i jumped everything nice in my head a couple of times?

Describe your favourite pair of underwear:
.hot pink and low riding

Describe the last time you were injured:
.define injure.
if you mean needed xrays? uh... car accident.
if you mean 'hurt for a while'? every day.

Are there any odd things that make you feel comfortable?
.what a strange question. uh. uh.
i did the whole tag and still. hrm.
*looks around apartment*
uh. fuck i have no idea what the answer to this question is. all my friends are odd. so them. yeah. (such a cop-out)

Tell me a weird story from your high school years:
.i met a date at school and a girl from my class hit on him from my school until he and i got off the subway downtown at the museum. such class. (that's wait for the bus, ride for fifteen minutes, try to hide, enter subway, wait for train, get on train and ride for half an hour *sob* [serious!])

What is the wallpaper on your cellphone?
.don't have one. was a pic i snapped of the acc from my first ever nhl game. (there's a post called that back in october) :)

What is your favourite soda?

Flavor of pudding?

What type of shirt are you wearing?
.form skimming black mock turtle neck with short sleeves in a semi stretchy fabric with a grey old navy hoodie over it

Prescription medication?

If you could use only one form of transportation for the rest of your life what would it be?
.my feet but assuming they're allowed anyway and that i get to repair it?
the car i currently drive
or a magic carpet d-uh!

How many people are on your links list?
*jeopardy music plays as sass counts*
assuming you mean blogs, 23

How many people on your links list do you know in real life?
*further jeopardy music...*

What are you listening to right now?
.the computer fan.
but swing finished in the cd player a while back

Most recent movie you watched?
.i rented three kings and the perfect man the other night. it was awesome

Name 5 things you have with you at all times:
.i'm assuming for this that i'm not in my neighbourhood because i've gone to the store in flip flops, a looooong trench coat and with a key to the building and 20 bucks in my hand. so yeah

wallet, keys, datebook, my car *grin*, shoes?

Would you rather give or receive a foot massage?
.duh, receive.

Name a teacher you had the hots for:
.oh man. oh man. um.
trying to think if ever there was one.
well except for the flight instructor i was sleeping with in college. does that count? *snicker*
ahhh he was sweet, i'd like to find him someday and give him a hug.

What is a saying that you use a lot?
or else maybe fuck me!

What's one piece of advice that you think should be passed on to every child?
.listen to your brain, your heart and your soul with equal measure and weight your decisions with all of their input and yet when still the issue is in doubt? hear your heart.

oh and because i'm feeling like it, a rejected pic from the shrug shoot:
(see bubbles they're sorta all blurry and yellow like this but way worse)

matt: well i'm glad you enjoyed the post anyway :)

it's such a fun tag i wanted to do it for a while.

i know, the finger is way too much isn't it? i'm sorry should i post a kitten picture instead?

maybe lambs? chicks?

Dude, otters totally rule! I'm with ya, Sass, if I could pick to be any other animal besides human, I'm going with otter for sure. They've got a family of otters on display at the Denver Downtown Aquarium and I could watch them for hours. Awesome.

yeah, yeah...nice list. Is your hair natural or permed? I absolutely love your hair and have always wanted to ask.

Blogger JMai said...

Aww yay! I totally forgot about this tag!

I also totally forgot about the reincarnated as a sea creature question? Was that really on there? Lol.

I need to try this Brio. You know at Epcot there is a little "exhibit" where they have little self-serve fountains and teensy dentist cups and you can taste all these sodas from around the world? I'll have to go back there and see if Brio is one of them. I think Coke sponsors the thing so if Brio's not in some way related in the corporate chain to Coke, I'm guessing it won't be there.

Ah well, will just have to take a trip up to Canadia to try it then. Which is fine, since I could use a pound or two of Cinnamon Pastry coffee beans from Timothy's.

Actually I will be in Buffalo in June, I should check out how far the drive is to the nearest Timothy's and pick up a Brio on the way!

Blogger sassinak said...

hubris: hell you took the pictures and sometimes you comment on them, what's the diff? :)

i comment on your posts i already know too...

john: yeah man aren't they awesome, they play and they even seem like they laugh. i don't have such easy access though :(

kathi: natural. but i leave in my conditioner to make it curlier, and i'm glad you love it, i love it too! :)

jmai: and it's such a fun tag too!

that was really on there, i did nothing but take out your answers.. all the rest was all there...

brio is delicious... it's really just the italian answer to gin and tonic... they made quinine pop instead. but it's yummers.

if you're in buffalo you're an hour and a half from me and we're fucking well meeting up!

and fort erie is right there so probably not far...

Yaay more pics *snoopydances around office since she is alone and no one will object"

This was a weird taggety thingy. And I am glad you picked dolphins, not sharks. *g*

And hopefully soon you will know a few more people on your links list :)

otters...hehe..my friends on swimteam called me an otter because i would always grab the water polo balls, grab on..and float on my back. apparently that is otter-esque?!

and i'd like to take you on a magic carpet ride, baby ;)

4/18/2006 10:27:00 AM  
Blogger sassinak said...

nat: i love imagining you with the snoopydancing, it makes me all happy and stuff.

i loved that tag actually and i've been waiting until i was in the mood to do it properly. least it has a different question or two...

yay for meeting bloggers!

elle: oh i'm always using float toys or just floating or playing or doing pilates or whatever in the water. loving the water and wanting to play in it are key i think :)

ohhhh baby you promise?

do do doo do do do doo

(that is my jepardy music if you can't tell)

I love that you want to be an otter, so cute!

Oh and I meant to tell you that you are really hot, in the other pics I never realized you had such beautiful eyes! still love the shrug and I like that you put up pics :)

4/18/2006 02:41:00 PM  
Blogger sassinak said...

hunee: hee nice !

otters are awesome, and even more playful than dolphins... and they have land AND water and they make SLIDES!!!

thank you! i don't feel really hot at all, probably due to my entirely non-existent dating life but i am getting my confidence back some...

i love my eyes best of all my bits...

i put up the pics because... i don't know why, but i did it once and the response was good so... *shrug*

4/18/2006 02:44:00 PM  
Blogger HuneeB said...

the response was good cause you are beautiful and we can't tell b/c you don't think you are and this comes across in your writing so we are all surprised when we see you and it's like Wow wtf is she talking about, she's hawt! :)

I like how otters lay on there back to eat and use their tummy as a tray...so cute! Lots of expression on their faces too :)

Blogger terry said...

that was a REJECT?


that's a great picture. you look fabulous, woman!

oh, and i liked the post, too.

4/18/2006 04:20:00 PM  
Blogger sassinak said...

hunee: i really don't think i'm beautiful, i think i'm striking and kind of cute... oh and tall i guess. every now and then, for a second or two i can sort of see what other folks are talking about but then i get all duded up and i go out and ... no one notices.

or i get up the nerve to tell a guy that i like him and he makes up a story which goes like 'oh i'd love to but you live too far/you're too old/you're too real/i'm not into you/i'm married/my cat just died/i have to wash my hair' and really means 'not if you were the last woman on earth.'

the truth would actually be easier to take, with the lying you allow yourself a little hope.

anyway, i just manage to get a bit of confidence and some ass comes along and steps all over it... and i know i shouldn't let that happen but i'm human right? and it's been years now so...

i love how otters do that kind of stuff, and they always look so full of mischief and glee.

terry: that was a reject, the non rejects are in a post called 'the crystal meth incident' ... if you blow that one up you can see the blur in the hands and a little of the yellow. the whole rest of the series is really yellow and blurry...

and thanks, i love the pic i'm just sad it's sorta blurry (think neutral density filter yeah!)

thanks, you can do the tag if you want, it's fun.

Alright first, pity me because I've never heard of Brio soda... seriously.


Second I have to say that you have made a major transformation in the last almost year that I've known you (physically). Sassinak you look great!

And that whole vision of you in the mock turtleneck and hoodie was actually a clit twitcher for me I must admit.

I think further that it bends me you do not have naughty toys.

I love that picture.
I love you.
I never miss your comments.

No, no lambs or kittens or baby chicks. Yes, this is cute, but no - the finger thing isn't over the top.

You look awesome and there was a filthy thought or three floating around the ol' noggin' there, too. :)

lol at; my cat just died/i have to wash my hair.

Okay Sass I must tell you, you are beautiful girl! And if you think anything less so will other people.

PostSecret had a good one about being ugly this past week...check it out.

Y.O.U. A.R.E. B.E.A.U.U.U.T.F.U.L. !!!!

Loved this post and the picture is smokin'. You have a rockin' body, chica. Get that confidence moving and you are on your way to what you are looking for.

bubbles: brio is delish.


thanks babe, i feel great too, it's really nice to own my bod again... i sure missed it.

hee, and some grey boys casual pants with pockets off the hips :) (yay for twitching... though i thought the part abuot jumping you in my head would get that going)

i must get naughty toys you are correct

i am very glad you love the pic, i posted it for you
i am fully smitten with you too darlin'
i never miss yours either but your blog is so busy i can imagine you might

matt: well i was having a lot of fun posing for pics cause i needed some for bubbles since she provided the shrug... and that one was fully silly but i like how my tummy looks.

yay for dirty thoughts!

Blogger sassinak said...

hunee: it's happened to you also has it? i just don't get the point of not telling the truth, just say NO for fucks sakes.

you know i know that my heart is a wonderful and beautiful thing, it's my looks i have trouble with. so i know i'm the kind of beautiful that matters... it's the other kind i have trouble with.

i love post secret so much, and i think i copied that one...


sign: hey i haven't seen you in ages... so i dropped by :)

i'm glad you enjoyed it, steal the tag if you like, it's really fun. i'm glad to have the body back, soon i'll BELIEVE that it's back... it seems that real self image lags about a year behind reality.

but yeah me and my confidence need to get our asses in gear :)

If Buf is only an hour and a half away, you are so ON! I have been looking for an excuse to just stay in Buffalo for 2 nights (I have a branch inspection to do there, then another inspection in Rochester, then 'm driving to my parents' for the weekend (with Chulo -- he is flying into Rochester Friday afternoon, yay!) until we have to leave on Sunday morning to prepare for the WEDDING ahhhhhh!).

Driving over the border to meet fab online people is as good an excuse as any to stay in Buf for an extra night instead of lugging all my stuff to Rochester. Yay!

Nat, wanna come with?

I had the same problem with my camera when I used it under a certain kind of lighting. Turns out I had to change a filter setting to "backlit" or something like that.

And hold on...conditioner makes hair more curly? SON OF A BITCH! That explains a lot. Thank you, Sass, from the bottom of my little black heart. Thank you! Gotta go tell off the idiot who cuts my hair...

What do you mean you leave in the conditioner? You mean the kind you're suppose to rinse out, you don't rinse out at all? Do you not realize I need more info than that?? Did we just meet??

Oh and Sass, no pic really does you justice. I'm just sayin'. :-)

They are nice reminders, though.

jmai: fuckin right, it's an hour and a half.

you can meet me in hamilton halfway or come to toronto for a night even (it's awesome you should) or i'll come there and see you. any of these options fucking rock.

if you're coming to toronto find a way to stay longer, i think you'll want to.

oh man nat might come too????

scat: well it was overhead light against a white wall, i'll pass that on to hubris. maybe he'll read it here.

okay re the curl... if you leave in your conditioner your hair is more likely to curl and separate a little BUT to be less frizzy. if you don't condition you'll frizz. um you don't like curls? leaving your hair up in a towel also encourages curl...

teresa: oh man dude i'm SO THERE!

well you know, i was feeling silly and the second i'm 'modelling' i start making ridiculous faces. ask me nicely and i'll do anything for a camera (except get naked)

i love the pic too but it's still yellow and blurry :)

kathi: lol

okay i wash my hair and i condition it. then i sit on the floor of the shower and shave my legs and pumice my climbing calluses. then i stand up and shave my pits and wash a couple of bits. then i give my hair a quick rinse to get out the really thick conditioner but not enough to get it clean... then i shake the shit out of it and put it in a towel... then inna bit i remove the towel and leave the house.

voila. oh and if i want super curl?

then i go climbing and then i shower and NOT wash my hair or rinse it beyond soaking the shit out of it and then i wear that for a day and then i rinse and condition and THEN i climb it again and then i put in leave in conditioner after i get it wet again. the best hair styling product in the fucking world is 4 or 5 days worth of dirt. you can leave this process at any point of course, i just don't like to wash the hair more than twice or thrice a week, it gets all dry and frizzy.

was that enough info? *giggles*

scat: *blush* thanks

you're sweet. a liar, but sweet.
