SUAR Does 11 Randoms

Jason from CETR tagged me to do this random business, so here goes. 

Here are the rules:

1. Post these rules
2. You must post 11 random things about yourself
3. Answer the questions set for you in their post
4. Create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer
5. Go to their blog and tell them you’ve tagged them
6. No stuff in the tagging section about you are tagged if you are reading this. You legitimately have to tag 11 people!

Random Things About Me:

  1. I love how a fart sounds in the bath tub. I think the whole house can hear it.
  2. I ran a marathon before I ran a half marathon.
  3. I am never confident before races.
  4. I was named after “Beth” from Little Women (I don’t think SUAR was a character in that book)
  5. I used to have underwear with the days of the week on them.
  6. One time I got kicked out of a sex shop for throwing an unmentionable across the room.*
  7. I met Ken in the backseat of a car.
  8. I love Altoids, but rarely want the whole thing. I spit them out all over my car.
  9. I once jumped the turnstile of a metro stop in Paris and almost got arrested. Too much kir royal, peut etre?*
  10. I drink about one soda a year
  11. Since moving to Colorado my eyes are always bloodshot. It’s not the medical marijuana. It’s the dry air. Or that’s what I'm telling you.

There. Done. Did you learn anything about me? I know – between the bath tub farting and sex shop games you probably are very envious of my varied and amazing life. Let me know when your post is up so I can be sure to check it out. I really want to read your answers to #1 & #4.



  1. ha ha! You have me laughing out loud as usual. The bathtub fart...can totally hear this. The hurdling in Paris, check writing for meth...I needed this. :) This is my second tag. Now I have your questions and Lindsays. I really should just buck up and get this done!

  2. Your answers are awesome! You never cease to entertain. Thanks!

  3. Man. I thought I was the only person left writing checks for meth. Its a lost art, really.

  4. The linking back to the boyfriend bathroom story was priceless.

  5. Love you officially ran a full marathon before a half but technically, you did that half before the full. :)

    Have a beautiful day!

  6. "Embarrassing Moments " is my other middle name. So bummed I didn't know about blogs or I could have entered your humiliating photo contest :) my answers will be up tomorrow !

  7. Okay seriously... we may be long lost sisters. Well, except that I don't fart in front of my hubby. Everything else (including the throwing of the unmentionable... or was it a long curved cucumber?) sounds VERY familiar. LOVE it!!

  8. I'm curious with your day of the week underwear... did you wear the underwear on the right days? Or were you like me and wear Monday on Wednesday? etc?

  9. Interesting stuff about you. If there was a "nice" way to fart, I would say in the bathtub is probably the best way: sounds like a musical melody of bubbles. Even if it's really loud. Unless it's too close to the surface...then it sounds like something else!!!

  10. Oh man, LUCKY ME!! You owe me!

  11. OMG. I would be tagged by the most embarrassing list-maker in the world. LOL.

  12. And with that, I think it is time for me to finally buy a SUAR shirt. You make me proud.

  13. haha...these are always fun to read!! okay, i find it fitting that the very first random fact that came to ur mind was about farts! do em loud and proud! :)

  14. Greece is my dream vaca too!!!! i hear it's in the 80's year round. sign me up!

  15. As usual you crack me up! I'll go to my blog and answer! I'm new at the whole blogging thing and thankfully I kept my day job I am not a writer! Lol! I enjoy your blogs immensely! :) I fart in front of my hubby, a lot and he often tells me to stop... Hey I say that's what you get when you're married to a runner!

  16. You always make me laugh. Thanks so much for that!

  17. HaHa! The bathtub "fart"...funny you should mention that... Two nights ago, my daughter who is 4, was in the tub with her older sister. I went out in the hall to get the towels, she must have thought I was out of ear shot. She said to her sister, "I just FARTED. I just FARTED out of my bum." (with emphasis on the word "farted" ofcourse.) Afterwards, we talked about not using that word (we prefer the kids to use "toot") but did discuss how much fun it is to "toot" in the tub - love those bubbles :)

  19. Good thing I wasn't having a soda while reading this - the cucumber would have had it come out my nose onto the screen/keyboard.

  20. This is great but at the end of the day Lemon was not a choice but you truly had me LOLing the whole time.

    So now do you just walk the unmentionable across the joint instead of throwing?

  21. Awesome answers. And thanks for not tagging me. I don't want to answer your questions because it will violate my 5th amendment rights.

  22. I did it. I have so many important things to do, but of course I chose this.

    I'm so glad you only write checks for meth because I really hate those people that write checks at the grocery store. Good thing you're not one of THOSE losers.

  24. HAHA, yes finally a real woman. My hubs and I don't fart in front of each other, but hey it takes all kinds to make the world go round. My kids on the other hand, that is a different story. Will be reading more soon. (found you from Punch in the Throat.)

  25. I love that half are about sex and half are about farts. Wasn't this a running blog?

    Thanks for the tag.

  26. How do you think of this randomness?!! I love it and am with you on #2. i need to be more aware of my daily thoughts that probably fall into this category.

    Today, I was driving to work and the sign outside a breakfast diner said, "Big, fat, juicy German sausage and eggs." all I could picture was a plate arranged like a phallic symbol. Dig in.

  27. Found you on "People I want to Punch in the Throat." I'm going to share with my wife, she runs 7 miles every morning. I sacrifice and stay home with the kids so she can run, of course she goes at 5:30 while we're all still asleep, but I take credit where I can.

  28. A long cucumber?? LOL

  29. Your answers-#7 wasn't a squad car by chance?

  30. Hey Jill- *sticks tongue out*

    Got my answers up, Beth! That was fun!

  31. Done. http://keithsodyssey.blogspot.com/2012/01/2x11-again.html

    Thanks for tagging me, if it made me think really hard.

  32. I did it too! Just for fun :)
