Random Survey and Parking Tickets

I had a bad day and got a $100 parking ticket at a state park in Washington for not paying the $10 parking fee! Now, if you want people to pay the fee, put the dang fee station where people can find it! Also, if you can have a ranger go around and ticket people all day long, why not just have him man a pay station so that people know where to pay you? So for an hour of outdoor activity, I now owe $100! W.T.F. Can things maybe start looking up sometime?! And I’m completely off my birth control for the first time in 11 years (we are not having a baby yet, mmmkay) so I think my body is in a state of hormonal confusion so I cry about everything- like parking tickets- for at least 45 minutes. (Also, this is the FIRST TIME I have not paid a fee at any park and it was really not on purpose- I had cash and I would have paid. M’F’ers. What kind of f’ing state charges $100 for a PARKING TICKET at a STATE PARK?! Take me back to Georgia, please. That’s how I feel today. TAKE ME HOME!)

So let me just cheer myself up with a boring old survey. I feel like pretending I’m in high school.

I Mustache You Some Questions

Four names that people call me, other than my real name:

  • Flizzy/Fliz (high school name that somehow stuck)
  • Babe (Jon)
  • Powerhouse (only Crista calls me this, but I don’t have many nicknames apparently)
  • Little Bit (random people who like to point out that I’m small)

Four jobs I have had:

  • Nurse (ER)
  • Tech (ER and med surg at hospitals)
  • Soldier (medic)
  • Best drive thru worker ever at Arby’s
  • The only other two jobs I ever had were seasonal jobs at Charlotte Russe and Aeropostale- each one lasted for about a month and I hated them both immensely and preferred fast food over retail any day!!!!

Four movies I’ve watched more than once:

  • Erin Brockovich (am I the only one who oddly loves that movie?!)
  • Dennis the Menace (my favorite childhood movie- I knew EVERY line)
  • Super Size Me (love that movie)
  • Center Stage (see how infrequently I rewatch movies? haven’t seen this one in years)

Four books I’d recommend:

  • The Paleo Solution by Robb Wolf
  • I can’t even recall any books that I’d recommend… It’s been awhile since I’ve read anything mind blowing

Four places I have lived:

  • Wisconsin
  • Florida
  • Ohio
  • Georgia (all states I lived in while growing up)

Four places I have been:

  • Australia
  • China
  • Greece
  • Spain

Four places I’d rather be right now:

  • Cuddling up with my husband and cats!!!!!!!!!
  • Germany
  • Iceland
  • The Netherlands

Four things I don’t eat:

  • Fast food beef (last time I had it was before I was a vegetarian, so before I was 11)
  • Raw sea animals of any sort
  • Those are really the only two I draw the line at…

Four of my favorite foods:

  • Coconut in general
  • Squash maybe?
  • Sweet potatoes maybe?
  • Really anything that fuels me in a healthy way… lame, I know, but food that’s what food is meant to do

Four TV shows that I watch:

  • Parenthood!
  • Nashville
  • Real Housewives (trash, I know I know)
  • Forensic Files! (about to hit up some Forensic Files right now, yo)

Four things I am looking forward to this year: 

  • I’m going to make this for 2015- EUROTRIP!!
  • Iceland (2015)
  • The newest niece/nephew (official announcements haven’t been made- so who is pregnant in mine/Jon’s family is going to have to be a secret for now)

Four things I’m always saying:

  • “I want to go there!” (any country/city/state ever mentioned- I want to go everywhere)
  • “So what is your EMERGENCY today?”
  • “Thank you” (thank you is very important- always thank people!)
  • “I love you” (mostly to Jon and my parents)

One thought on “Random Survey and Parking Tickets

  1. It’s really cool that you’re going to Iceland! I know you wrote about a lot of things in this post and maybe I just picked out the most random thing to comment on, but that’s not usually a country you hear people travelling to or wanting to visit but I bet it would be really, really neat. I love how you travel to different places and seeing all your Europe pictures and also the ones from travel nursing :).

    Parking tickets suck! I am always scared of that in Downtown Charleston so I just park in a garage. We have those weird signs that say things like “2 hour residential” and it’s just confusing about how long you can stay parked in the spot, etc.
