This week has been weird. I feel a little off my game so my creativity is low, and I’ve been spending so much time answering hard questions about myself in interviews that I thought I might as well answer some here that are a little bit more fun. This should give you guys a chance to get to know me a little better, we are friends after-all!
So here we go…
30 Questions To Get To Know Me
1. What is your name, age and marital status?
Samantha Rasmussen, 27, Partnered
2. Do you have or want children?
I’m a bonus Mom to 3 awesome teenage boys and don’t plan on anymore children. We also have two fur babies.
3.What is your living situation?

4.What are you afraid of?
Clowns, Losing A Limb, Dead Things.
5. Describe your relationship with your parents?
My Dad passed away when I was 16 and I feel like we had the best relationship a teenager girl and her Dad can have. My Mom is my best friend and is absolutely wonderful. We get along great and she is always there for me when I need her.
6.What 5 superficial things make you the most happy right now?
Lipstick, Tangerine Lime Carbonated Water, The Puppies Playing In The Sunshine, Sparkly Nailpolish, Bikini Tops.
7.What is the hardest thing you have every experienced?
Probably losing my Dad. It is so hard losing a parent anytime but I think its even worse when you are a teenager and still think people are invincible. I didn’t feel like I could be a kid anymore and my perspective changed and that made it hard for me to handle all the superficial BS people my age were concerned with. I also think it really changed me as a person and affected a lot of the decisions I made as I became an adult that weren’t necessarily the right decisions.
8.What is your dream job?
This changes all the time but I think I would be most happy being a life coach specializing in confidence and self-image counseling.
9. What is your pet peeve?
When people act entitled. I don’t feel like anyone is owed anything besides basic rights to live, love and be happy. Otherwise it’s us that owes something to the world.
10. What is your most embarrassing moment?
While camping two summers ago I was going to the bathroom in the woods and was using two sticks to balance myself almost like I was skiing. The sticks slipped and I fell down into my own…. you know.
11. What are you good at that people would never guess?
Well Jami thinks it’s amazing that i’m such a priss but I can spin a basketball on my finger. I’m also really good at picking the winner of reality tv shows off of my first impression of them.
12. Share a memory from your childhood?
I remember playing house with my friend Ashley around age 5 or 6 and stuffing our shirts with tissues so we could have big boobs like our Mom’s.
13. If you could have one superpower what would it be?
Superpowers are dangerous. I wouldn’t want to know what people are thinking, and the idea of flying sounds novel but would totally fuck my hair up, lol. I guess I would have to go with x-ray vision, it would be a laugh a minute.
14. If you could have dinner with 3 celebrities dead or alive who would they be?
That’s easy RuPaul, Dolly Parton and Bette Midler. Can you imagine the crass comments and debauchery and overall fabulosity of that dinner?

My behind of course. They should just call me Miss Look At My Butt, Look At My Butt. (If you know what movie that’s from you get 10 points)

Physical Touch. Seriously touch my back and i’m butta.
