Meme Answers

I know all y'all have been checking back over and over again for the answers to my meme. Ok, maybe not. But here they are nonetheless. :)

1. How did Hubby and I meet? Most everyone got this one right. Sei and I met online at ldssingles.com. He emailed me 1st on June 21, 2001. We met in real life for the 1st time July 5, 2001 at my sister's apartment. I do think it was the "Mom of 27 kids" on my profile that sealed the deal, Nancy. ;)

2. Take a stab at my middle name: My middle name is VicTORIa. Anna Victoria. Maybe I need to change it to Lynn because that's what the majority said it was. :)

3. Do I have any siblings? How many? I have 1 brother and 3 sisters. Tara, Nicole, Walker (aka Woogs) and Ali. Ali is not even a year older than Tristan. Nicole is the one who died and Tara blogs also.

4. What's one of my favorite things to do? My sister emailed me her answers and she said EAT. Yes- I love to eat. I can out-eat my anorexic Samoan husband anyday. But I also love to blog, Dance,Dance Revolution, Guitar Hero and make out with Sei. ;)

5. What's my favorite kind of music? I really like a ton of different stuff depending on my mood. 80's hairband is my fave, I like Muse, Jack Johnson... but yesterday I was listening to NKOTB. (Gotta get ready for the reunion tour!!) I also love listening to Sei play the piano- unless I'm listening to the radio- then it bugs me. But he knows that. The only thing I don't really listen to on a regular basis is country, but I did make Sei a cd for Valentines day last year with country love songs. :)

6. Am I shy or outgoing (In real life, not online)? I'm pretty shy until I'm comfortable in a situation. But if someone is more shy than me then I tend to seem like the out-going one. I can't stand uncomfortable silence. I think the bloggers who have met me or talked to me know that my online personality is a lot LOUDER than my boring real life one. ;) I think Kathleen nailed it pretty well: a mixture of both depending on the people and the situation (but you are more bold and outgoing in the blog world). you feel that not as many people "get" you in real life, especially in your ward. you are so not like the typical conforminist woman. you have a style all your own, to beat to your own drummer, you say what you really think when most are afraid to call it like it really is, and you have a spunky personality that is endearing to unique tori you.

7. Am I a rebel or a rule follower? I used to rebel all the time. I still do when I think it's necessary. But sometimes I find myself being anal about dumb stuff like going in the EXIT door at Wal Mart. Why do people go in the wrong door? It just bugs.

8. Special talents? Well, that was interesting to read what y'all wrote. I can remember things really well- like useless information. But I can't play the accordian or anything. I loved the "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" quote ~j. wrote "I love to dance." I do like to dance, but only in the privacy of my own home. Unless I'm posting a El Pollo Loco ad on my other blog for $25. I'm sorry for anyone who had to witness that... I'm so NOT a dancer.

9. If you and I were stranded on a desert island, what is the one thing I would bring? Sei or music- definitely. My mp3 player can make everything better. Jacob Black would be nice too, except he's only 16 so I'd have to stop lusting and take on a more motherly role than I'd want to.

10. One word that describes me. Y'all sasid ZANY, FUN, AMAZING, SPUNK, TEXAN, APPROACHABLE, KIND, RAD, COOL, MOM, AWESOME and ZESTY!! Thanks y'all. That was a question purely for my self esteem. ;)

11. What is Sei's favorite thing about me? I loved all y'alls answers, especially fertility... (Omar!) I asked Sei for his answer and he typed this out for me. Awwwww!!:
My wife has so many admirable qualities that it's hard to pinpoint just one. I feel so very fortunate to have met Tori and for the man that she has helped me become. While going through mediation for visitation revisions, the mediator pretty much told Tori that I had to grow some... Yes, she helped me "grow some" but this is not the reason I love her, although it is a contributing factor. I could say something generic like "her eyes" because they are beautiful, or her smile because it is comforting. It goes deeper than that. I love the way she looks at me when I come home from work. I love that I can't go a couple of hours during the day without hearing her voice. If i'm having a bad day I just need to talk to her or see her and nothing else matters. The one thing I love about my wife is how much I need her. She is RAD and I love her so much!

Thanks for playing along y'all!! BTW- I have a new post up at my new blog 76 to Now.

So fun! I especially love what your husband said about you!

I love that you love to "make-out with Sei"!!!

omar said...

Not that I'm keeping score or anything, but I think I won this one just like the one over at Nancy's. Two for two on these reverse memes.

Though I will admit that I'm a bit thrown by the middle name answer.

Amanda said...

What a sweet answer from Sei! You guys are so cute! :) I laughed at your comment about Jacob, motherly role! hahahaha ;)

Hannemann Family said...

I learned a lot about you, Tori! I, also, don't care for country music...never have.
And THANKS, by the way, for scaring the CRAP out of me with your little haunted house youtube video on the family website...Maili was eating her breakfast at the kitchen counter and I screamed, she screamed, the dog barked, and I almost broke my computer by slamming the screen down so fast (lap-top)...Did you film that in your house or did you just find that somewhere?

Tori :) said...

Hannemann Family- Sei scared me with the same video. I posted it on here a while back. He's a dork. Sorry!

Well I didn't too bad, but I could've done a lot better. Sei's comment was so neat. I knew I could never come close to it. He is such a romantic.
