Survey on a Saturday

Confession: I love e-mail/facebook surveys.

I like answering questions to reveal things about me to others -- and sometimes even to myself.  So when Holly posted this the other day, I knew I had to do it too.  

Basically, the rules are you cross off things you've done before and explain your answer.

So enjoy.


Appearance
I have/had piercings besides the ears.  I got my belly button pierced at some point during my freshman year of college, but I took the piercing out a LONG time ago.
I want piercings besides the ears.
I have many scars. I have one on my knee where I sliced it open playing softball in my backyard (I don't know how to explain it better) and a small one up in my eyebrow from the chicken pox.
I tan easily.
I wish my hair was a different color.
I have friends who have never seen my natural hair color. I'm not 100 percent sure what my natural hair color is at this point.  It's probably there now, but I don't know.
I have a tattoo.  I have three tattoos.
I want a tattoo. I definitely want at least one more.
I can be self-conscious about my appearance. Constantly.  Isn't everyone?
I have/had braces. I had them twice for a total of almost five years.  Yeah, it sucked, but my teeth look pretty good now.
I have more than two piercings.

Embarrassment
Disney movies still make me cry. Um, yeah.  Should I be embarrassed about this?
I've laughed so hard I've cried. Those are the best kinds of laughs.
I've glued my hand to something.
I've laughed until some kind of beverage came out of my nose. Yep. Koolaid. Back in elementary school.
I've touched something sharp/hot/etc. to see if it would hurt.

Health
I've gotten stitches. In my forehead when I was in 1st grade. I tripped over someone else's shoelace and face planted on the asphalt playground surface.
I've broken or dislocated a bone. Just a toe.
I've had my tonsils removed.
I've had my wisdom teeth removed.
I've had chicken pox. I think it was in 4th grade.

I've been to the U.S. Uh, yes. I live here.
I've been to Europe.
I've been to at least one other country.
I've never been out of the country. Yeah, I know, I need to get on this.

I've been skiing.
I've been in a musical. I was in three in high school - "Wizard of Oz," "Annie Get Your Gun" and "South Pacific."  Small roles every time.  I'm OK with that.
I've auditioned for something. For the musicals listed above, cheerleading squads in high school, a college band scholarship and the college cheerleading squad (I was not selected for this one).
I've been on stage. Lots of times.
I've caught a snowflake on my tongue.

I've pranked someone. I can't remember a specific one, but I have.

Death
I'm afraid of dying. More like I'd be afraid of what I'm leaving behind and what I'd be missing out on. (Just leaving Holly's answer here ...that's mine.)
