Its all about Meme

Its been a LONG time since I have done a meme. But all the cool bloggers are doing this one - not to mention we got home late last night from a long-weekend trip, and I seem to be suffering from a sever case of writers block summer brain - so I'm gonna drink this KoolAid.


What color are your socks right now? No socks. Just bare feet in dire need of a pedi.

What are you listening to right now? My dog breathing heavily, and the keyboard clicking.

What was the last thing you ate? A bite of oatmeal with Craisens and walnuts (I'm breakfast blogging.) It was too hot so I'm waiting for it to cool.

Can you drive a stick? Uh, no. But my dear friend Tracy V (my best friend from high school) once tried (in vain) to teach me. It was back when we were young and stupid...Why "stupid" do you ask? Well, being a slow learner (me not her), she tried  to teach me to "feel" when I might need to shift by having me close my eyes, while she steered. Did I mention that we were in her brand new car that she had just bought? (to be fair we were in a large, empty parking lot, but still, I cringe (with glee!) when I think about it.)

Last person you spoke to on the phone? was actually Tracy! We spoke right before I left for the weekend. She brought my attention to the unfortunate mash-up of Madonna's lyrics in the last post. We laughed like hyena's. (which is one of my favorite things about her)

How old are you today? 30. Ish.

What is your favorite sport to watch on TV? Basketball. But sometimes like to have the football games on, but I don't watch them. I like to have them on in the back ground because it feels like what one should do during the fall season.

What is your favorite drink? Coffee and water are my staples. But I love a juice spritzer (cranberry and seltzer or lemonade and seltzer). For adult beverages, I would rarely turn dow a frozen margarita or a glass of merlot.

Have you ever dyed your hair? Is the pope Catholic? I get my hair colored every 5 weeks wether I need it or not (and I always do...a side effect of being....30....ish)

Favorite food? That one is hard. I guess if I have to pick a fave I would say tortillas....fresh, not from the grocery store. it's the perfect bread because you can eat it with anything...beans, meat, peanut butter, cheese. Need I go on?

What is the last movie you watched? In the theater: Back-up Plan with Jennifer Lopez. It was cute. At home: Julie and Julia. Also cute.

Favorite day of the year? Goverment Holidays...cuz then The Mister is home.

How do you vent anger? I usually clean something as if on the war path. It may or may not involve war cries and wailing and gnashing of teeth. But I'll never tell.

What was your favorite toy as a child? I was a stuffed animal lover. But I also had a tiara that I loved, wish I could find the school pictures from third grade. I had snuck (sneaked? snook?) that tiara into my bag and put it on right before the photographer snapped the pic. It didn't occur to me that I would have to bring those pics home and the evidence would be against me.

Favorite Season? Fall, but a North Carolinian spring is a very close second!

Cherries or Blueberries? Man! Why do we have to pit the cherries against the blueberries? ( You don't know how funny i think i am.) I like them both, but if I have to pick....cherries.

When was the last time you cried? I can get verklempt nearly every day, but a good cleansing cry? Its been so long I can't remember.

What is on your closet floor right now? Shoes, a couple of handbags, and a lot of dust.

What are you most afraid of? I worry in a freakishly obsessive way a lot about my kids safety. But I'm working on it...

Plain, cheese, or spicy hamburgers? Cheese

Favorite dog breed? Mutt

Favorite day of the week? Friday.

How many states have you lived in? 3. AZ, TX, NC

Diamonds or pearls? Diamonds  What is your favorite flower? the ones that pop up every year (unannounced) in my backyard

Did you get an H1N1 vaccine? No. Got a normal flu shot though.

Oh yeah! I love memes! I think it gives a little peek into those "little things" about people.

...and on a side note, I now have a blog post!

Thanks! xoxo

I happen to think that we belong in tiaras. Maybe we should start wearing them again, so that everyone knows how to treat us. ;)

I'll give you props for the pun.

Tortillas are a delight.

And I'd lurve any drink shared with you (whilst getting a pedi together).

Love this! And I too, will have a blog post in about 15 minutes. Thanks for pulling me through a blog fog.

'pit' the cherries against the blueberries...hahahahahahaha :D
