Fifty Shades Of Turtle

Ahhhh ummmm yah so thanks Heather my friend blog acquaintance from The Beating Hearth!  I owe you one!

Haha  Just kidding...this was kinda fun!

Actually you probably didn't really want to know this about me, but it counts as a blog post...and I usually post on Fridays and I was too lazy  busy to edit my cooking pictures from the rocket stove 

and bury all of the failures.

so here is my Friday Post

1. What are you wearing?
I'm slumming it in Coco Chanel, but usually I wear Versace! 
 They make that in pajamas right?

2. Ever been in love?
I am in love with fudge.  I wish I had some right now......

3. Ever have a terrible break-up?
Why yes, I have.  I made this amazing fudge, but it kinda burned and I couldn't break it out of the pan.  It was terrible :(

but I ate it anyways ;(

4. How tall are you?
Put it this way....I usually need a ladder.  But when I'm on that ladder, I would say pretty tall.  So I am going to say pretty tall as my final answer!  Is that the right answer?  Do I win the million?

5. How much do you weigh?
It depends on what I am carrying.  If I have bricks for the rocket stove in my hand then a lot more than  if I have feathers for my fascinator.   And do I include the ladder?

6. Any tattoos?

I've sported a few rub-ons in my day and they might have had a skull or not.  Probably not but
 it had a maple leaf for Canada!

7. Any piercings?

I really hate needles....but I was twelve and stupid...just my ears and only one hole in each.  I kinda remember the warning I heard too....
."If God wanted you to have holes in your head, you would have been born with holes in your head."

8. OTP (One true pair, favorite fictional couple?)

Gaius Baltar and Six of course.  Are there any better fictional couples??

 Fudge.  I really miss you fudge.  I think I should make some today!

12. Favorite Song?
She's got electric boobs....her mom does too, you know I read it in a magazine oh oh.   or 
 Hold me close I'm Tony Danza.  Just kidding.  Too many to list, but I do like Heather, my new acquaintances Dirty Deeds Dunderchee.  That is truly a classic!  Rock on Heather

13. How old are you?

 Sometimes people ask me if I'm you think they are being mean or probably cuz I look so young?  I am totally taking that one as a compliment!

 When I found my remote control.....I told it how much I loved it......oh wait, that was someone, not something..... why just today but I was drinking quite heavily!

30. Meaning behind the name of your blog (Feral Turtle)?

Mr. FT was jawing on about feral mules in California.  He tried to tell me that there was a population explosion of these animals.  They were multiplying like rabbits and the wildlife authorities opened season on them!  Anyone with a gun could go out and cull the herd. 
We were driving on a freeway......I was kinda listening but concentrating more on driving.  When it dawned on me what he was blabbering about, I quickly enlightened him that mules were sterile so it was impossible for them to be feral.  He realized at that moment his story had been made but believe me, it didn't stop him.
 He shares the same sign as me...see # 14 but not in date.
  Anyways I kinda thought it was funny (but don't tell him that)!  But if I called myself a mule, people might think I'm an I picked the next best thing, turtles, cuz I am kinda like one, tucked into my shell here.  That's how the Feral Turtle discovered me.

31. Last book you read?

The Rising....a book about the zombie apocalypse cuz it is totally gonna happen and I need to learn how to survive! 
 It wasn't Fifty Shades of Grey or the next two books cuz turtles wouldn't read that kinda smutty, sexy book.....hehehehehehe.

City of the Dead....part 2 to #31

50. Who should answer these questions next?
I am hoping you guys want to play.......and they usually comment on my blog so hopefully they will read this post and say, "Oh Feral Turtle....thank you so much for inviting us to play.  We love you for it!  You're so awesome and we won't seek revenge or anything crazy like that!"


Amy from Stow and Tell U
Tuula from the Thrifty Rebel
Sherry from Thrift My House
 Don't hate me ladies....hate the game not the player!



  1. What is it with all the BSG? Am I missing something?

  2. OMGosh, Karen, you are too funny and quick-witted! In your next life (provided you make it through this one with all of your DIYing), you should try stand-up comedy and/or write a book! Great way to start my day, just after coffee, of course!

  3. How fun to read these Karen! I have to admit when BSG first came on TV, we had parties at our house and everyone loved that show! I miss those days. Looking forward to the new rocket posts!

  4. The question is do you keep enough fudge around for when you tune in to BSG? And promise me you won't hop in that rocket stove and lift off to BSG land one day, never to be heard from again...pretty please??? So nice to learn a little more about you and challenge accepted.

  5. Okay, I was careful not to have coffee in my mouth while I read. I cannot afford to replace my McLap. You are so witty and clever. Favorite band--OMG! My keyboard would have been soaked. As it was I woke up Karma--ROFL!! ;)

    Confession: I had to google Gaius Baltar and Six. Now I am off to find Battlestar Galactica on Netflix.

  6. Oh, so hilarious! I gotta admit, I haven't seen BSG, but now I am intrigued! It's that good, huh? Like Rita, now I gotta see if it is on Netflix. And I am slightly ticked because now I am craving fudge and have the damn True Blood song stuck in my head ;)

  7. soul sister!!! How can these peeps not know BSG?? And # Six!!!!! I haven't watched in a while...I need my fix.


  8. You are a nut! And I would like to thank the academy, it's an honor just to be nominated. I'm seriously all choked up....

  9. LOL!!! So I'm off the computer for a couple of days and this is what happens. BSG? Is that anything like MSG? You know that's bad for you... right? I'm a BBT girl myself. I could be a rebel and not play, but I think I'll have to rebel against my rebellious nature just this once.

  10. I have really enjoyed reading everyone's answer to this series of questions. Fudge and remote controls, hilarious!

  11. It must have taken you such a long time to write this post, but it was really fun to read!

  12. chortling with evil glee in Salt Lake city. I loved this. I have several thoughts...we so need to road trip and rock out to some dunderchee. My oldest baby girl doesn't want to get her ears pierced because she doesn't want forever holes in her head, but she's traumatized because ALL the girls have their ears pierced. I tell her, it's okay not to. I'll tell her about you, the nice lotion and soap lady, and your regrets, maybe that'll make her feel better. Also, I really appreciate your qualities in a are so naughty, I love it. And, final thought of the day...fudge. :) Love you.

  13. you're a complete and utter dag, and I love you xoxoxo

  14. Fun read!
    I am so with you on the jewelry. I'd much rather buy tools or art supplies.
    I liked your reason for starting to blog!!
    Have a great day, Deb


Cheers to great words!
