Saturday 9 – You Like Me Too Much

Posted on September 12, 2009. Filed under: Meme Fun, Mommy Moments | Tags: , |

1. If everyone liked each other, what would we complain about?

How frackin nice everyone is.

2. If you were most powerful person in the world, how would you use that power?

I’d start by making my kid stop asking me when his friend is going to get here.

3. If had exactly one year to live, what are the three things you’d want to do before you died?

Travel, Travel, and um, Travel

4. If you could change one thing about the world, what would that one thing be?

People would take more personal responsibility – no blaming, no whining.  Sorry you had a bad childhood but that doesn’t give you the right to go kill someone.

5. If you could take one thing back, what would that one thing be?

I said something really mean to a friend in high school.  I know – everyone says mean things in high school … but this was uncalled for.  That’s really the only thing that ‘hangs with me’ possibly because she died a year later.

6. If you were stuck on an island forever but had all the water, food and shelter you needed. What would be the three other things you’d bring with you?

Well, there’s four in our family so you do the math.

7. If the internet didn’t exist, would the quality of life go up or down?

I don’t know how I ever did a term paper without the internet.  It’s true, kids these days have it so easy.

8. If a million dollars fell off a back of a truck, would you keep it?

I’d have to reason that anyone who put a million bucks on the back of a truck wanted to lose it.

9. What is something you said, something you stole, something you did wrong?

said – apparently I use the word “actually” a lot.

stole and wrong – ok, this one is funny, but wrong.  In college I lived in a suite.  Every Sunday night the suitemates would make dinner so you would take turns.  My roommate and I didn’t plan well so we didn’t have a lot of money when it was our turn to make dinner.  So, we went to the local grocery store and stuck a package of hotdogs inside my jacket.  As we were walking out, the package fell out.  I looked at her and said “I dropped the weenies.”  We grabbed the package and ran out.  Yes – we were laughing.  Yes – it was wrong.  And yes – I hope my kids never do that.

1. Is summer your favorite season? Why?
I do like warm weather, but HATE humidity.  I know there are people out there shocked to learn that NE and IA (that’s Nebraska, not New England, and yes I have been asked that), but it gets terrible and I think we might be in for some today.  I also liked the relaxed feeling of summer.  You never feel in a rush to get anywhere or do anything. 

2. Do you exercise more in the summer because you wear less clothing?

3. Do you enjoy tanning or are you more concerned about the dangers of basking in the sun?

Yes – must tan.  It somewhat camoflouges the fact that I don’t really exercise that much.


4. You are on the beach when a waiter appears for your drink order. What do you ask for?

Any type of Rita


5. Do you camp in the summertime?

 No.  The last time I went camping I was 15.  It was my parents (my step-dad is 6’4 280 lbs, stinky little brother (he’s passed that phase now) and two boxers.   In a tent.   In July.  I don’t know who snored louder or smelled more. 

Amusing side-story.  My SD and brother (he was probably 7 at the time) were cleaning fish and the other guy there cleaning burps really loud.  When he remembers someone else is there he apologizes.  Brother says, “that’s ok, my dad burps and farts all the time and then blames it on the dogs.”  It was true.

6. What was your favorite summer vacation as a kid?

I was fortunate to be a well-traveled kid (above memory not withstanding).  I have to say I loved going to the Black Hills.  We went every year and it was just something to look forward to.

7. Do you enjoy sleeping outdoors?
Why would anyone enjoy sleeping outdoors?
8. Do you throw a summer barbecue every year?

Usually – we cook out almost every night in the summer.

9. Have you ever been to a nude beach? If yes, what did you think?

No, but it wouldn’t bother me.  Although I might actually have to partake of #2…. or maybe just a lot of #4 and then I wouldn’t care.

Saturday9, A Little Less Conversation

Posted on April 25, 2009. Filed under: Mommy Moments | Tags: |

1. If you could have just one more conversation with a person from your past, who would it be?
My grandfather. 
2. Do your friends tend to be male or female?
A pretty good mix actually.
3. What is in your car’s trunk?
A lot of crap – my entire car needs to be cleaned out.
4. What was the last CD that you purchased?

Jersey Boy’s soundtrack.

5. What is your favorite movie and why?

Two — The Shawshank Redemption – what perfect retribution, great acting, suspense, and the bad guy gets what he deserves in the end.

The Usual Suspects – the best twist ever in a movie, and the bad guy gets away in the end.

6. If you could wake up with a new talent tomorrow, what would it be?

The talent to know what the stock market will do the next day.

7. What is your favorite day of the week and why?

I like Fridays.  I get off work at 2 which gives me time to run errands and then get home and ready for the weekend.

8. What are you wearing when you feel you’re at your best?

Depends on what I’m doing. 

9. When was the last time cried?

Surprisingly it’s been a while.  Watching the end of Battlestar Galatica.  Yep – I’m a geek.
