Never Have I Ever Linkup


[ My friend Justine and I at the Color Run last weekend ]

Hello, friends! Let's get this never ever party started. Link up your never evers below, and let's have some fun with this one. 

Never Have I Ever...

-Read or watched any Twilight book/movie.

No. Just, no.*

-Dated anyone whose name did not start with the letter J. 

This is for real. I have dated a grand total of 3 boys:

Josh #1, who was roommates with 
Josh #2. 

That was awkward.
Important Note: I did not date them at the same time.

However, neither of those boys could hold a fork against

-Gotten a traffic ticket

I did get pulled over once in Texas for rolling a stop sign. You better believe I cried my way out of that one.

And by cried, I mean heaving sobs. Jordan was not happy with me.

-Done a pullup at the gym

I don't care how toned you may think my arms look, my stupid string bean arms can't do a single pullup. Useless!
-Been drunk

That's right. I've never been drunk. Although I do love me a good frozen strawberry margarita.

It's not because I think drinking is evil. It's because I'm cheap and don't think having a hangover sounds like fun.

-Gotten a flu shot

Don't even get me started on flu shots. They're about as useless as my arms. #conspiracytheorist

-Watched a single episode of Breaking Bad

You guys. I dropped the television ball on this one. According to Wikipedia (my #1 most trusted news source) it's one of the best shows of all time, and I had no idea it even existed. Unfortunately for me, I'm already too emotionally invested in reruns of Top Chef to start another TV series.

*If you like Twilight, we can still be friends. There's no judgement here.**
**There's a little bit of judgement.

What have you never ever done?

YAY I DID IT WITH YOU! (and you did give me my idea in the end, see?)

every time I go out for the evening and have just one or two drinks, I go home thinking, "hey, this is so much better than spending lots of money and waking up with a hangover. I should remember this next time I'm feeling the itch to get drunk." and, you know, more and more as I get older... I do remember it!

Unknown said...

shoot I forgot to link up today! I'll have to do it tomorrow

Bailie @ The Hemborg Wife said...

This was so much fun and I do not think I will ever do a pull up either, which I am fine with because it has very little practical life use just like geometry!

Raige Creations said...

This sounds like a fun prompt.
I will work on post, but for a quickie, I have never watched Breaking Bad either! I got stuck on Dexter, love Top Chef, and am a closet Project Runway geek. That is plenty to keep me busy, but now that Dexter is over...maybe will see what Breaking Bad is all about.

I have never had flu shot either. It seems all they do is make people sick. Hubby gets them and every time he get sick. NO thank you. I haven't got the flu once either. I don't trust them one stinkin bit.

Gotta think about some other Never's now.
wait, my brain hurts, later I will think about nevers. (yes, I procrastinate.)

Kerry @ Till Then Smile Often said...

I am far less scandalous as I thought. Pull ups are so hard!! I have never read twilight but I have seen one of the movies. *Shame*

Allison said...

I'm with you on the flu shots. And I've never seen Breaking Bad either and I don't intend to. I honestly don't think that I would like it. I have however, read and watched all the Twilight stuff. It was fun, in a ridiculous sort of way.

Kelsea said...

I've never done a pull up's one of those things in the gym I've just admitted defeat to for good. I haven't watched any Breaking Bad & I agree on the flu shot (and other vaccines for that matter!)- never had it and don't plan on it. This was fun! I know you said it was just a one day thing, but it'd be fun if it were monthly! :)

Michelle said...

Twilight. The entire movie is Robert Pattinson and the dirty looking girl
(I can't remember her name) staring at each other. Thank goodness you saved yourself.

Lauren @ Love is the Point said...

Just grabbed your button! Looks pretty sweet on my sidebar!

Beka @ Sunshine to the Square Inch said...

Twilight ... 'ain't nobody got time for that'! I agree. About pull ups. I can't do them either but I can do them when I use body bands. I wonder if the bands you have would work. Have you seen anyone use body bands?

Anonymous said...

Fist bump for the flu shot part. I completely agree.

Breaking Bad is awesome. You should watch it someday.

And I read the Twilight books but pride myself on the fact that I have not watched a single minute of a single movie about sparkly vampires.


Allie @ Everyday Adventures said...

I can't do pull-ups either, though I have watched the Twilight movies. We'd wait til the masses had already seen it, then go to the theater when no one else was there so we could yell things at the screen!

Kate said...

Somehow, I missed this link up, which makes me sad! Oh well.

Never watched Breaking Bad. Refuse to get flu shots. And most of all, I've never been drunk either!
It's always so awkward when people start telling funny stories and say, "man, was I drunk!" Only for me to tell something equally embarrassing followed up by, "Annnnnd.. I was sober."

Miriam said...

I've never watched Breaking Bad either! Or Sons of Anarchy. Or True Blood... It's quite an extensive list. Good job on getting out of that ticket! I managed that only once, the other 2 times I got it - no fun. Love this linkup, and I'm a big fan of your blog!

Unknown said...

Bahahaha! Loved this! Especially the Twilight one! You are correct, never, no... NEVER

Tara said...

Thanks for hosting! This was fun :)

And haha to dating only Js. That cracked me up.

Rachel said...

I've never read any Twilight books but I did watch the movies because my husband forced me to. He's so weird. I've never been drunk, either, but then I've also never taken more than one sip of any alcoholic drink because I don't like the taste. Give me a coke slushie or something like that instead!

Susannah said...

Haha. I love this!!! I don't get flu shots either. They're dumb. I work at a dr office where they give flu shots and I still refuse. Yeah, my coworkers definitely give me a hard time on that.

Anonymous said...

Hi. Me again. I linked up! Thanks for hosting. Oh and there is yet another Brian Regan reference in the post. I promise I don't usually talk about him as much as it must appear. Except maybe I do.... :)

Happy Thursday!


Jena Roach said...

This was cute, Amanda! Sorry I missed it.

I can't do a pull up either. What's our deal? Maybe we should join Crossfit. I love the Twilight asterisk. I read it out of curiosity, but I agree. No, just NO.

From Foothills to Fog said...

Better late than never! I had so much fun reading all these posts!...I used to feel the same way about Twilight, then my friend convinced me to at least start book 1 and I was hooked. The movies are terrible though. Can we still be friends?

Kym Fox said...

Hahaha ... your Josh #1 and Josh #2 reminds me of Thing 1 and Thing 2. It's good to know that you didn't date them at the same time ... except hell, I pass no judgement ;)

Wendy said...

Love your list! This was such a fun linkup to participate in! I'm glad you can still be friends with Twilight-likers. ;-)

Ashley said...

Great list! Oops, I kind of missed the ball on this one. Maybe I'll post tomorrow :)

Saxon @ Lets Drink Coffee, Darling said...

Its funny, I've been reading your blog for a while now, but didn't realize you were one of the girls at the color run last week until after we were finished with it. haha

And this is hilarious...I should probably do this since I have a long long long list of 'never have I evers.' Your list is pretty great, some of them I'm right there with you, some are just funny!

Holly Olsen said...

Oh! This looks fun. Also, I may or may not have read/watched Twilight...we can still be friends, right? ;)

Rebecca said...

I just found your blog and am going to be linking up! Sounds so much fun. I think me and you would get along great with the "flu shot" thing. I'm always arguing with people who insist the gov is doing us a favor by giving them to people. Yea, totally against the flu shot in so many ways

Erika from America said...

Hahaha, I really enjoyed reading this! :) That's crazy about the dating people only with J's in their name! And I've never seen Breaking Bad either... just doesn't sound like something I'm interested in... though that's a pretty big achievement on Wikipedia! :)


Niken said...

i love reading this. i should think hard about things that i haven't done.

Lyndsay Almeida said...

Ha! This list is so freakin' funny. Glad I found your blog tonight!!

Deanna Herrmann said...

Haha! This looks like it was fun and I enjoyed reading it. I've actually never seen Breaking Bad either, but I have seen Twilight and read the books. It's ok. I accept the judgement. :-) I'm not sure how I got sucked in!

Unknown said...

This just cracked me up! Loved it.

Anonymous said...

I totally agree with you on the flu shot!!! conspiracy theorists fo life

The Girl who Loved to Write said...

I legitimately laughed out loud as I read this. Especially about you being too emotionally invested in Top Chef. I AM WITH YOU.

Megan said...

This is so fun! I can't believe I missed the link-up (that's what I get for not putting it in my planner), but it looks like you got a lot of participation, so I'm excited to read the other posts! Don't read or watch Twilight; not worth it. (I've only seen the first movie, and that was enough.)

Holly @ Hello Audrey Ruth said...

So first I should probably confess that I haven't read blogs in weeks and I'm totally catching up so sorry for driving you crazy with comments tonight - I just love your posts so much!

1. I've never been drunk either. My college friends always laughed at me. I love a good drink but spending the night over the toilet, not remembering where I was, not knowing how I got home ... none of those sound fun to me at all.

2. I hate hate hate flu shots. My company pays for them and my sister is a pharmacist who tries to get me to get one. I'm always conveniently at an out of office meeting when they happen.

3. I have one traffic ticket for speeding in what was supposedly a school zone. The school was demolished a week after my ticket so you can't tell me there were actually kids there that day. At any rate, I was sick and balled my eyes out. The cop didn't care and I got a ticket anyway.
