Making Melissa
1. Something you will...

refuse to do for the rest of you life:  drink alcohol.  i think we have established that.

always do forever: love taran.  forever and ever and ever. 

2. Something you think is... 

certifiably disgusting:  eating seafood.  ew!! i don't like fish when they are alive, why would i want to eat them when they are dead?  

absolutely amazing: seeing strangers be kind to one another.

3. A compliment you've been given that's made you...

feel on top of the world: "you are doing a lot worse than you are capable of." my therapist told me that when i was at the bottom of the barrel, scratching to reach the top and i thought i couldn't go on with everything that was happening to me and i wanted to hide in a cave.  that compliment made me realize i have a lot more in me, a lot more stregnth in me than i give myself credit for.  i somehow managed to pull myself up and succeed and get through it. 

pretty upset: "you're a horrible graphic designer.  just stick to marketing and social media."  i guess that wasn't a compliment, but it stung so hard.  i still to this day am soooo self conscious about my graphic designing.  i don't have the eye for it. 

4. A name you...
hate: LO-REN.  that is NOT MY NAME!!!!!  my name is LAU-REN. lauuurrrren.  no O! drives me absolutely crazy.  i answer the phone and say "this is LAU-REN and the person says "hi lo-ren."  ugh!!! just writing this makes me so angry!! if my coworkers call me that i just say "that's not my name" and ignore them until they say it correctly.  because we are friends and i can be a brat like that.  people have just started to call me LP (my initials) because they don't want to deal with it. 

love:  LP, lala, lulu, honey, sweetheart, baby, my love, darling, pretty much anything taran or my family or my closest friends call me.

5. Something people say about you that you...

know is entirely false: i'm spoiled.  i am not spoiled.  just like erin said in her post when she answered these questions, just because she managed to live in manhattan doesn't mean her parents helped her out.  and just because my dad is a doctor does NOT mean that he gives me anything on a silver platter.  i have worked for everything i have gotten.  

think is on point: that i am kind and generous.  thanks to my saint of a mother, i strive to be like her and follow that example.  i try to think of others.  

6. A taste you...

can't stand: cheese.  always and forever, i hate cheese to my core. 

can't get enough of: fruit roll ups, martinellis, gushers, cherry pie.

7. A song you always...

turn off immediately: anything by kings of leon.  i can't stand his singing voice.

belt out the lyrics to: 1+1 by beyonce. 

8. Animal you...

fear: i saw this one episode on my new favorite show stalker once, so now i am too scared to say

need in your life right this instant: taran.  and babies.  to hold a baby.  isaac is the perfect age right now where he will let you hold him and cuddle him and he will smile and smile and smile at you and if you tickle his neck he will laugh so hard and giggle and then your heart explodes.

9. Something you...

will never ever eat: stealing from erin here: animal organs. or any type of animal that isn't listed on a fast food menu like octopus, deer, duck, goose, whatever.  yuck. 

would eat for every meal if you were given the chance:  anything of my mom's.  probably her mashed potatoes and this chicken covered in some kind of chili stuff. yummmmmm.

10. To enhance your looks you...

would love to, but would probably never resort to:  get myself a chin.  i have the chin of kenneth parcel, which means i have no chin.  and i hate hate hate hate it.  i have hated it my whole life.  i would love to fix it.  but that kind of surgery is scary! and this is the face God gave me.

just stick to:  the right amount of makeup.  the amount of makeup that makes you look like you have none on at all. right aunt becky from full house?? (she said that once on the show, i'll never forget it.)

  1. I used to hate cheese (other than mozzarella) but recently gave other types a chance, and I like it a lot more now than I used to! :O

    I totally feel you on the name thing. My name's Farrah (pronounced "fair-uh," like the actress), but I get the weirdest attempts on it ever. :[

  2. Ohhh I want to hold a baby! Babies are so cute and cuddly and they smell like love and sunshine! :)

  3. Cheese is one of my main food groups so that really surprised me! I think seafood is disgusting too, even the smell.

  4. Cheese and seafood are two of my favorite things in the entire universe.

  5. I laughed on the Lo-ren/Lau-ren thing. I think some people really don't even hear the difference.

  6. I love this writing prompt! I might steal it for a day where I'm experiencing extreme bloggers' block. How can you not like cheese?! I'm obsessed with cheese.

  7. No seriously, how do you not like cheese?!

    It's funny but pretty much everything you dislike, I love. I love cheese, seafood (mmm sushi) and Kings of Leon. I love his voice. But hey, to each their own. They say opposites attract. We'd probably make awesome friends :D

  8. You now have me second guessing the way I say Lauren... Ha ha! I am not a big seafood fan either, yuck. Also, yes to holding babies! They are so cute and cuddly :D


Hearing from you makes my day!!
