Saturday 9 – Heatwave

Posted on July 18, 2009. Filed under: Meme Fun, Mommy Moments | Tags: , |

[heatwave_-_candles.jpg]1. It’s July. How has the weather been where you are? 

A mixed bag – July 4th was so cool we had a bonfire (normally it’s a heat index of over 100).  We had a record low of 53 the other night.  But no humidity so it’s been awesome.
2. What is the best way for you to beat the heat?

Go inside an airconditioned house!  We also beg our way up to the neighbors pool sometimes.

3. “It’s not the heat, it’s the humidity.” Do you buy that?

Been in Nebraska/Iowa/Florida on a day that’s 90, but the heat index is over 100.  Yeah, I buy it.  I’d take dry heat any day.

4. Do you like hot tubs or saunas?

Not usually.  Humidity again.  See a pattern?

5. What’s the hottest you’ve ever been?
Sr Cheerleading Captain….?   Oh, you mean heat.  Pick any day in August around here and you’ve got it.

6. How many times do you hit the beach in the summer?

I’m in a land-locked state.  Yeah – we have a few fake beaches …. but they are disgusting.  We just hit the pool.

7. When you were a kid, what did you do in the summer?

Rode my bike, all day long, everywhere.

8. Surfing. Have you ever gotten on a surfboard? Body surf?
No – The thought of drowning isn’t all that appealing.

9. What’s your favorite summer song?

Hot summer nights…….storm clouds in the air… eyes are a little heavy – (New Girl Now)  Ok, maybe not my favorite, but I’m in a hurry and it’s the one that came to mind.

Saturday 9 Yankee Doodle Dandy

1. What is your favorite 4th of July memory? (If you aren’t in the U.S., then use your own national holiday.)
My little brother LOVED fireworks.  He would spend a ton of money to get the good ones and then put on a show at our grandparents every year.  He would announce the name of each firework before he set it off.  He hates being reminded of that now, but it was pretty cute at the time.


2. Do you consider yourself patriotic?

Yes – I get a little misty eyed at parades when the vets go by, or at ball games when you hear the entire crowd singing the National Anthem (seriously – it is hard to sing, but don’t change it).

3. Do you like fireworks?

I do enjoy fireworks.  We tried to go see the show last night, but first the ball game went into extr innings (It was already 9:30 and we have two little kids).  Then a storm moved in and they put the game on hold.  We gave up and went home.  The kids were asleep before we even got out of town.   I think we’ll try again tonight with a different show.

4. What are your plans for this weekend?

It’s still a bit rainy and yucky today, although they say it’s going to clear up.  Punk ended up sick, so we’re laying pretty low at home – cook out … then maybe try and hit the other big show tonight.
5. Are you optimistic about the future?

I’m realistically optimistic.

6. Do you think everyone should serve in the military?

Hmmmm …. tough question.  Lord knows I wouldn’t have been any good at it, and I totally admire my sister-in-law for doing the National Guard thing.  And, I wouldn’t really want my kids to do it.

7. Would you support a constitutional ban on flag burning?

No.  That would go against the entire basis of the constitution.  Having said that, I certainly don’t like it. 


8. What end of the political spectrum are you?

I tend to be a bit more liberal, but also believe people should take personal responsibility for every choice and action and not expect handouts for everything little thing that goes wrong in their life.  I also agree wtih George Washington that we never should have introduced political parties because that skews the entire foundation of the political system.

9. Where do you get your news?

Not Bill O’Reilly.  Seriously, who gave him a show and crowned him a “journalist?”  I take all news with a grain of salt and try to read/watch several different sources when I have the chance.  I have to say, I do enjoy now and then!!!
