My favorite time of the blogging week is the Monday Minute with Ian. Perhaps it's because he makes me giggle, perhaps it's just because he shares my dress-up-like-a-character deep love of The Rocky Horror Picture Show or maybe it's just because I have a weak spot for a man dressed in drag...who knows but either way he posses some quality that makes me look forward to his meme week in and week out.
This week his co-host is Kristi over at The Daily Dribbles, so go check her out and give her some comment lovins!
1. Who is your "what-if" person?
(What-if person being what if I married this person or am now in a relationship with "this" person)
I don't have one. I am madly in love with my husband, who was my high school sweetheart. I don't "believe" in divorce, what I mean by that is I don't believe that divorce should be the easy out that it is(except in cases of abuse, of course). I love my husband and I love my kids, and I love that they are my family. If my husband and I have problems then we work them out. I have no desire to be with anyone aside from Justin. My husband and I have made it through a lot, fights, resentment, the affair he had and a ton of other things. We're in it for the long haul, so I don't have a "what if" person.
2. What is your nickname?
I don't really have one. Unless of course you want to count the kids calling me Mama or Mommy, or Justin calling me Baby, Babe, Gorgeous, Bitch or *ahem* See-You-Next-Tuesday (it's said with love, trust me, I'm not a girl that takes kindly to blatant disrespect) or something like that, which I do not count. There are a few people that call me Ash.
3. If you could choose how you died, how would you like to die?
I would like to have my loved ones at my side - and after telling them what I'd like to tell them, I would like to drift off peacefully into an eternal rest. (I'm going to keep Ian's answer to this one, because he's pretty much the ish and it's basically what I would have said anyway)
4. If you could have named yourself, which name would you have picked?
I always want to change my name. I have a very popular, very generic 80's girl name, in the top 3 for that time consistently. I'm not generic, and I'm not like most other Ashlee/Ashley's that I know. I feel like it's too cutesy, or too foo-foo for me, don't get me wrong I'm a stiletto loving, MAC addicted, chick-lit loving girly girl sometimes, but I have another side and that side is the dominant side. If I changed my name it would be something like Scarlett or Jacqueline. Yeah, I think I would change it to Jacqueline Scarlett, and then I would have a nickname because I would want to be called Jacks or Jax or something. (= Since my Mommy picked my name, I doubt I'll be changing it though.
When I was a dancer I had to pick a stage name, you know because of freaky stalkers and such, I picked Trinity because I really liked it.
5. Who were you named after or for what reason did your parents choose your name?
*sigh* I knew this was coming. I was named after Ashley Abbot on The Young and the Restless, my Mama's favorite Soap Opera and her favorite character. Ashley was very popular, and she must have sensed that I was going to be a very unique person, because she spelled it differently by adding a second E and leaving out the Y. My Daddy put the names of two of my aunts together and that made up my middle name.
