BIG Friday!

(Hey, if you've not done so already, be sure to enter my $65 CSN giftcode giveaway going on RIGHT NOW!)
Today is probably the biggest Friday of the year. Well, perhaps not the entire year, but atleast the college football year. You see, tomorrow the #10 Hogs play #1 Bama. Hog fever has been high around our neck of the woods. Students have been camping out since SUNDAY for the football game that's tomorrow. The game is sold out, and tickets are going for as much as $2000 a pop (which by the way, I may add is complete ridiculous). We don't have tickets, but Drew will be going to tailgate just to get some gameday experience. I will be staying home, since bringing a 17 month old to that chaos makes me nervous. We'll also be hosting two of my best friends and their husbands here at the house all weekend. It will most likely be the last time for visitors for a while since we're getting rid of the futon after our guests leave, and will officially have no guest room until we get a new house. So this weekend we'll sort of be laying low, watching and calling the Hogs and hoping that we at least don't get slaughtered.
As usual, I'm participating in 5QF... I love the questions this week and hope you enjoy my answers :)

1. If you could speak with a different accent, what would it be (i.e Australian, Scottish)?
This question makes me giggle. Not because it's funny (well, it kinda is I guess), but because I just can hear myself talking in a different accent and it makes me laugh. I think if I had to pick one I would pick a British accent.
2. Can you fall asleep anywhere? (i.e floor, couch, deck)
Sort of, but not really. I really like my bed. Like, REALLY like it. I suppose some of my problem with falling asleep in weird places right now has to do with the fact that even when I am at home my sleeping is subpar at best. That's what happens when you sport an abdomen the size of a large watermelon :) 
3. Do you use public restrooms? If so, do you sit on the toilet?
(SIGH). I hate public restrooms. And when I am not pregnant, I am a PRO at holding my bladder for a LOOOOOOONG amount of time. I award my dad for helping with that quality, as we always were petal to the metal during road trips as a child. I will hardly ever go #2 in a public restroom. It grosses me out, and I am a squatter, and squatting while doing THAT is not a specialty in my book. And so I guess I just answered part B of this question... NO I don't sit. Gross. Even if it looks clean, it's not.
4. If you were stuck in an elevator for 24 hours, what celebrity would you most want to be stuck with?
OK, so I have to be honest here. My first thought was Patrick Dempsey. But really the only reason I even think that is because I love McDreamy on Grey's. And considering I am married, that option doesn't really have a leg to stand on, so I moved on. The next thing I thought is that I wanted someone funny that would make me laugh and get my mind off of the fact that I am STUCK ON AN ELEVATOR. I though Robin Williams. Then I thought, Oh gosh, that would get old really quick. I mean, I like funny people, but people who overuse their humor kind of get on my nerves. And thinking of being stuck in a 6x6 box with someone who is getting on my nerves makes me think I am about to have a panic attack. So then I thought of two people who have a great sense of humor but also have a serious side: Oprah and Ellen. Either one would do. Obviously Ellen is a bit more funny. And for what it's worth I don't agree with everything they believe in, so I am sure there would be some good heated discussions, which I am always interested in :) So I guess (c) would be my final answer: Oprah or Ellen.

5. Where did you & your significant other go on your 1st date?
Drew debates the answer to this question, so I'll give you the lowdown and you can decide. Drew actually was interested in me long before I ever caught on. He was friends with all of my friends and then it kind of developed after that. So in the spring of 2001, there was this contest going on at U of A called Battle of the Bands. One of Drew's friends had made it to the finals as a solo act, and he was going to watch him play. It was at a local bar, and he invited me to go. There was a cover charge, and he paid my cover. He also bought me a drink while we were there (a coke, since I was not old enough to drink yet), picked me up from my dorm and brought me back to the dorm. And we talked in the parking lot for like 2 hours after it was all over. In my mind, it's a date. Drew refuses to say that because (this is my opinion here) he hates admitting that he brought me to a bar for our first date. So what... who cares? He counts our first date as 2 days later, when he brought me to his church and then for a walk around a local park. So, what say you? Bar or church? LOL.

Happy Friday Yall! Have a great weekend!
