12 Weird Random Things About Me!

This comes from another Blog tag/meme, which is great, because I wasn’t sure what I was going to write about today. So let’s just talk about me in this meme! Or should I say ME!ME!
My oldest son tells me I’m weird just about every day, so I thought this would be easy…I had to ask my hubby and best friend for ideas!
Please keep coming to my blog after you discover the weirdness of Kelly Polark…

1. My first ever writing published was in Us magazine (now titled Us Weekly). It was in the Reader Mailbag section-which they don’t even have anymore…the topic was Matthew McConaughey!
2. I was mistaken for a boy more than once in my tomboy youth.
3. I (and my two sons and dog) have a brief cameo in the Brides of Destruction music video, “White Trash.” I’m not white trash, but I play one on TV… (Look for us at around 1:55 and 3:34)

4. I don’t like onions, but I love onion rings.
5. When we were in junior high, my best friend and I were Vice-President and President of Student Council. A few times when we forgot to do our homework, we called a student council meeting to avoid going to class.
6. I received my only detention in high school for chewing gum three times in Spanish class. “Chiclet, Margarita!” My only excuse was there was a cute boy in my Spanish class, and I had to have fresh breath!
7. I hung a poster of Kip Winger in my dorm room and then in my room in the sorority house at college. I got teased mercilessly for it! When I was in junior high, my posters included Michael Jackson and Duran Duran.
8. My college roommate, Becky, and I once spent an afternoon talking with the squirrels and really thought they were communicating back to us (and no, we weren’t even drunk…yet, anyway).
9. My husband and I had a pretend puppy when we were first married, because we couldn’t have a real one yet in our apartment.
10. I manically check the Doppler Radar every few minutes during storms.
11. I sing along with the car radio at the top of my lungs.
12. I was the Homecoming Queen in high school, my sister was Prom Queen, and my Dad was Prom King (obviously not the same year ;0). We did not grow up in a palace, however.:0)

OTHER BIG NEWS: The Sixth Bi-Annual Biz-Over Event to Honor Chicago's 12 Most Powerful and Influential Women is being held tonight. I want to congratulate my sister, Denise, for being one of the twelve honorees! Denise is the founder and president of VaVaVroom, a motorcycle apparel for women company. Congrats, sis! I am VERY proud of you!

Congrats to your sister!

You can't let your kids see my blog...but you can't put them in a video for a band called Brides of Destruction either!

Ha! I love it!

Brenda said...

I am another "sing at the top of my lungs in the car" person...when I get weird looks, I figure they can hear me, so I sing louder...grin...

Love the imaginary puppy...girn...

Carrie Harris said...

Did the pretend puppy have a name?

Kelly said...

Thanks Sruble and Adrienne for the Congrats for my big sis!
The- You have a point there...my husband was very wary of my kiddies being in a video titled White Trash! My love for rock n roll took over my common sense for a moment.
Brenda and Carrie- The imaginary dog's name was Puppers which is what our first dog's name ended up being after we kept calling her Puppers instead of the name we gave her!

I am the "Becky" who talked to the squirrels with Kelly. And I just want to verify that he did communicate back to us and no we were not drunk...not at that moment.

I am also the best friend who helped call student council meetings to get out of class. And I must say that is probably one of the worst things Kelly ever did. She might be WEIRD, but she was always a "Good" girl!!

Kelly said...

Not much of a surprise that many of my weird times were with you, Beck! We've had many adventures!:0)

Gottawrite Girl said...

Hi Kelly! My husband and I are getting our first dog... Our "starter-baby!" I love these MEMEs!

Angela said...

Neat vid--sounds like you've had quite the life growing up. Congrats to your sis!

Kim Kasch said...

My friends from college only send Christmas cards nowadays. How cool is it to stay in such close contact with an old friend. (I mean a long-time friend) He-he.

The Squirrel Whisperer - love it ;-)

Denise said...

You are very sweet and not white trash at all. Love ya!

Tabitha said...

Congrats to your sister!! And a big thumbs up to her for starting such an awesome business (I had the same frustrations she had with motorcycle apparel, but I don't have the motivation to start a business over it). :)

Kim said...

I love your list. I'm still chuckling over your pretend dog, lol:) I'm a weather radar fanatic too.
