This past weekend has been not so great. I am in the middle of a taking a zpack and the side effects are coming out! Last night I had the most insane pounding head ache and I woke up to a sore throat...awesome way to spend your two days off.
Ok I will stop complaining now. Here is another edition of social sunday run by Ashely's Carnival Ride and Neely from a Complete Waste of Make-up. This weeks questions are all about childhood:
1. What do you miss most about being a kid?
I had an ok childhood, but I was a weird kid (and a tom boy) and apparently a lot of kids my age felt that was reason enough to alienate me. So I stayed in my room a lot and drew like crazy. I guess I miss having the time to be creative and doodle. I don't have much of that these days.
2. Did you have a nickname growing up?
Sini. Legend has it that when I was born, the name Sarina was to hard from my brother Charlie to pronounce, he was 5 at the time. He went to say it and it came out Sini. I don't hear my family call me Sini all that much these days. However, my family did tell Tim about the nickname and he calls me Sini all the time.
At my elementary school there was this thing on the playground everyone called the upside down U. Not sure why we just didn't call it a lowercase n. But it was big wooden arch that I always ran to first.
4. What did you want to do when you grew up?
This was the golden age of Nicktoons, we're talking Ren & Stimpy, Doug and Rugrats. I ate all of those shows up! I wanted to work for Nickelodean.
5. What was your favorite toy?
As mentioned earlier, I loved to draw and loved art. I always got random art kits and supplies for my birthdays and Christmas. Anything Crayola was my jam. I also loved the occasional Lisa Frank stickers. (who didn't?)
My Dad tells me this all of the time and its his favorite Sarina baby story. One day I went missing (we had a ridiculously huge house) They found me walking around outside in a diaper and I had taken a burnt out florresent light bulb out of the trash and I was walking around like a trapeeze artist. My Dad said they such followed me with a camera and thought it was the most adorable thing.
