Little known facts about Busty LaRue

Thanks a lot Lola! She tagged me with this lovely. I have honestly been trying all day to come up with 6 things that are insignificant. Well, here goes!



Fact 1: I have many names. Busty LaRue (not really my name) and Laura Jo (not really my name), are just a few of them. My REAL name, is actually from the BIBLE. She was a woman who followed Christ in the New Testament, and went to visit the tomb after the Crucifixion.


Fact 2: Back when I was young (and might I add: STUPID) I once switched colleges for a boy.....and then withdrew 3 weeks into the semester because he was dating someone else. I went from being a :


to a:


(Not quite sure what their mascot was.....Now they are Utah Valley University, and I think they are the wolverines.....but again, I only went there for 3 weeks!)

Fact 3: For the most part, I am a really shy person. I know! I can't believe it either!! When Mike and I first got married, his parents told me I didn't talk enough. Now, I'm sure they regret saying that to me! But I still am pretty shy at times.


Fact 4: It is really easy to make me laugh. For example: When I worked in the mall, I worked at a place that I like to call "hell" (and I imagine that this is really what Hell is really like). I was the store manager. I put up with WAY too much crap because I am a very nice person, and don't like confrontations. Also, I didn't want to get fired.


Anyway.....I had to tell a customer (who actually works there in management now!!!) that I couldn't allow her to return her pants because she had just pulled them out of her washing machine, and they were dripping all over my counter.....and it was the middle of DECEMBER (they would freeze in my back room) and that really it was her fault they ruined her other jeans because she didn't follow the washing instructions that were written in BOLD on a sticker on the pocket of the jeans (wash separately for first time as they used a special dye that could stain other clothing items).....all with a straight face. And I accomplished it! I had a good laugh about it afterwards, but that was one of the few times I have ever been able to keep my composure in a situation like that!

Fact 5: I am terrified of heights.....and ladders. In fact, I have a small panic attack everytime I have to climb up past the third rung on a ladder. Gosh I sure did pick the wrong industry to work in before I had Marshy-marsh, didn't I? Apparently standing on a ladder is a requirement when you work retail in the mall....whether you are pregnant or not.

Fact 6: I didn't think my blog name through completely when I made it. Apparently people Google things like "busty glam" and "busty moms" and "busty Africans" (see my post: Our Trip to Africa) ALL THE TIME! However, it does make me feel good to know that people are actually visitng my blog, and that I am usually within the top 5 results of the first page for many of these google searches! To those of you who are actually reading my blog because you want to, not because you were looking for something nasty.... THANK YOU!

Again, thanks to Lola for tagging me! In turn, I would like to tag the following people:

My Frister Jenny: because if she didn't live at the circus, I'm sure her life would just be too boring and she always makes me laugh!

Dana: because she makes me laugh every day! I just love her blog, and the comments she leaves on Kathi's blog too!

Amber: because she needs an excuse to update her blog once in a few million years! j/k we love you!

And Diana: because her stories about her hubby Bob (not really his name) are too funny. Also, her stories of her "battles" with her kids are Hi-larious! (I picked the two posts that I thought were funniest, but there are many many more over on her blog!)

Happy tagging!!
