As I was reading thru my google reader this afternoon I came across the Blue Zoo and her Monday Minute (brought to us by the Daily Dose of Reality). Having never done a monday minute I had to give it a shot. Plus, it all is for our friend Daffy (I mentioned over the weekend about her losing her sister). If you want to give Daffy some love you can get to her site by clicking on the photo.

1 - Do you *snort*?
I'd love to say no, but I'd be lying. I actually do snort, but only if I'm really laughing hard. I think it may stem from the fact that I'm usually concentrating on not peeing my pants at the time, I can't think about not snorting.

2 - Our friend, has a nickname and it's Daffy.  What's your nickname?
Well believe it or not, Bambi isn't actually my real name. I bet you didn't get that.  So, yes, Bambi is one of my nicknames. It goes back a long time ago from when I was in college and my bff was also named Susan. One of our profs said we needed nicknames so I said I wanted to be Natasha (you have to say it with a russian accent of course). Well the other Susan didn't want to be Boris, so we agreed on Bambi and Thumper. I'd say I still got the better end of the deal, although now in my professional life people tend to think I am a former stripper or something.
Other nicknames I have would be sue, susie, mom, mother, satan's whore, and wifey. I think that about sums it up.

3 - Do you know sign language?
well of course I know the universal signal to go fok yourself, but I actually learned how to say 'penis' in sign language by the master herself - Daffy - at TAR last month.

Here are Travis and I practicing saying penis. Thanks Daffy! I'm sure this will come in very handy at the pharmacy. and thanks to Barb for taking the picture.

4 - What's a sample convo from your hood?
"'scuse me. can I talk to the pharmacist?"
"I'm a pharmacist, can I help you?"
"No, where's the other guy that's usually here? You know, he got dark hair."
"He's off today, can I help you with something?"
"Are you his wife?"
"No, I'm just a pharmacist. I fill in when he's gone"
"Well, he was supposed to leave some vicodin for me. Did he leave it?"
"Ummm. NO. He sure didn't. Why don't you come back tomorrow..."

I could go on but really I think that's the gist of it. Oh, and in case you were wondering, the pharmacists that I fill in for *never* leave vicodin laying around for people... darn it.

5 - Do you sleep with electronic devices - i.e. laptop, Blackberry, iPhone, etc?
I can think of many ways to answer this... however since it's my first Monday Minute I'm gonna keep it all clean and say... YES. Actually I do. My mattress pad is electric and when it's cold and snowy outside I like to turn it on high and get my bed all toasty. Then I turn it down to 4 and settle in for a warm sleep.

Well that's it for Monday Minute. Go see Daffy. Go see Ian at Dose. Go see all the other people I bothered to take the time to link up. I'm going to GO to starbucks. Ciao!

Matty said...

I actually remember your post way back about how you got your nickname. And I like that convo from your "hood" at work. Gotta love a good customer. LOL

Brian Miller said...

next time i go to the pharmacist and ask for vicotin and they as why i know what sign to make now...

Jay said...

I guess that dude looking for Vicodin thinks he's being clever not asking for Percocet or Oxycontin.

Urrgghhhhh I just started the monday memoir and now Travis is bowing out for a while... I will try and do this one next monday... always two steps behind FFS!!!!!

Momma Fargo said...

Love it! Love the sign language. LOL

Doreen McGettigan said...

Well hello Bambi! My nickname is Doe, yes as in the female dear..have been called that ever since I was a baby. I love the sign language which I am literate in do to a special needs grandson and I so love teaching him the bad words! I have not met many bloggers that are right of center, which I am so :) I am visiting you via Mrs.4444's contest. I hope when you have a chance you will stop by to say hello.

Boy, I sure missed that Devil's Whore at TAR last month. When will be her next appearance?

gretchen said...

Great minute, Bambi! Ian's the best. I'm thrilled to have been educated in a new sign language word. I'll have to try to start working it into sentences.

Barb said...

Don't forget Mom used to call you Tweety Bird and Grandpa Joe called you his little Suzette.
Luv ya. And you are funny as hell. I guess that does make you Satan's whore!

Nickname: Creepy.

Yes I sign! And LOVE that the sign you've showcased here is penis. Made my day.

I recall hearing the story of your nick name at a previous time. I think that you posted about it before?
