Never Have I Ever...

Never Have I Ever
This morning I read a great post by my new blogging friend Stacey over at Likes to Smile Blog that was a list of "Never Have I Evers." Her post is part of a linkup by the lovely ladies of Back East Blond, Heavens to Meighan and Keeping Up With the Cyperts. I've never participated in a linkup before and I thought this one sounded like fun. You know, if I could come up with some PG rated experiences. The last time I played this game included lots of alcohol and no ring on my finger. My how times have changed. Here are 8 things you probably didn't know about me.
  1. Watched an episode if American Idol. Sorry folks, I just don't see the appeal. Plus, Ryan Seacrest drives me bananas.
  2. Liked watermelon. I try it at least once a year just to see if I change my mind. Something about the texture just doesn't do it for me.
  3. Gotten a ticket. I have been pulled over 3 times and somehow weaseled by way out of getting a tickets. Most memorable would be the time the officer asked me if I knew why he pulled me over and I told him honestly that I didn't. He said I made an illegal U-turn and I pointed out the sign actually stated "no left turn." Mr. Police Man next asked me out may left turns make up a U-turn. Smart as I am I said "two". This is about when he started to doubt himself and decided not to give me a ticket. To this day I'm still not entirely sure the legality of the situation.
  4. Seen The Notebook. I know. I have scolded for this before. Everyone I have ever talked to bawled their eyes out during this movie. Why would I inflict this upon myself?
  5. Dyed my hair. Here is a fun activity--Picture me with blond hair. Worst idea ever. I have thought about getting highlights but I'm way too cheap to keep up with that. I will be a brunette for life.
  6. Actually liked beer. This didn't stop me from drinking it like water in college. I drank a lot of microbrews when I moved to Portland (we have one on almost every corner. Likely next to a thai food place) but I decided to finally be honest with myself. Wine, cider and Lillet for this girl!
  7. Worked the same job or lived in the same residence for longer than a year and a half since 2000. Hoping to fix that in 2013-14. Time to enjoy what I have.
  8. Enjoyed running. Many years of ballet left me with a mild case of duck-feet (pointed outwards). Ducks don't run. Trust me.
 Well that was fun. Not sure I have ever play this game sober before! What about you? What have you never done?


  1. I'm with one #1! I don't get the appeal of it either. Fun exercise. One for me would be never have i ever watched the (or a knock-off) Gangnam Style video.

  2. Thanks for linking up to my blog!

    Meanwhile...We were meant to be friends!! I also don't understand the appeal of American Idol. I've never watched.

    Nor have I also seen the "The Notebook," which I think I would like because I love rom-com's!

    And I laughed about "ducks don't run!"

    How funny! With our love of Rom Coms I should have noticed neither of us put that one on our faves list!

    Wow. That is a difficult one to escape!!

  5. To be fair, the Notebook is a weird happy/sad movie. Like at the end you are happy but are somehow crying. It's the perfect ending, really. I loved your list! I hated beer in college too but now I've learned to like it. The frat boys in college just bought crap beer so no wonder it sucked! haha Thank you so much for linking up with us!

  6. *gasp* give me a minute........... you've never- seen-the-notebook? Oh it's just so good. I know every word and cry every time in the same spots, haha. :) thanks for linking up with us!

    Never have I ever been a regular blog reader. But I am determined to change that and to start with yours! I love your list, and knew (or am not surprised by) most of the things on there. However, I am really surprised that you haven't been suckered into a viewing of the Notebook. I haven't watched it in years because I agree with your crying comment, but it really is a good cry.

    Awww thanks! You can always sign up to receive posts by email too :-) At this point I think I am just going to hold out on the Notebook to make a point :-) What was that movie we watched with the kid who died of cancer that we cried for like 2 hours afterwards? That still haunts.

    It was so much fun! Looking forward to the next one :-)

  10. I've also never seen The Notebook and have no desire too! It looks ridiculously stupid and sad, although Ryan Gosling is dreamy!

    Cute post. I found you through the Blog Trends Blog Hop. :-)

  11. This is one of my favorite games. I see where you're coming from on the Notebook thing - if you just look at pictures of Ryan Gosling you'll get half the fun. That's why I haven't seen Up or Must Love Dogs.
