To Celebrate the big 200, the Thursday Three today...
Isn't A List!!
Instead, it's Q&A time in RC Ville. Thank you to everyone for the wide range of questions. (Who am I kidding? Thank you for playing along and fostering the illusion that any aspect of my life is exciting in the least). You've given me lots of interesting ideas for future posts. Very interesting ideas...
This was kind of hard to narrow down, because I really wanted to answer everything. That's the kind of person I am, you know. Always eager to please, bends over backward to not hurt feelings, willing to sit up until midnight trying to decide between paper and plastic. But then I tried to pick three and couldn't. So, with a few exceptions, I am going to cover them all. Briefly. (That will be a first for me).
What's your favorite thing about liberal collegeville?
I love the college atmosphere, the weather and the liberal bent.
- What do you miss about California, besides the weather?
- How did you meet the Film Geek?
where's my pif gift?
made me laugh out loud, ciara. (Hmm...maybe she really wants to know).
I you had to choose, wine or chocolate for the rest of your life, which would it be?
Probably the most unfair question of the bunch. I would go with...wine. But it would suck.
Paper or plastic?
Plastic. (We are talking grocery bags and not toilet paper, aren't we?)
Ice cream in a cone or dish?
In a dish, preferably with hot fudge on it.
what do you look like?
I'm tall (5'10"), curly streaky brown hair that I've just cut to shoulder length, brown eyes and I bite my nails.
what did you do before blogging?
Spent way too much money on eBay.
How do you find the time to write 200 blogs?
Well, I write fast. I have a journalism degree that I've never used. I get an idea in my head and let it fester all day. Then I sit at the computer and pound it out. It's usually pretty quick.
Do you put toothpaste on the toothbrush first and then wet it/ wet the brush first or not wet it at all?
Wet it first. Duh. How else would the toothpaste stick?
Do you put shampoo into your hand first or straight onto your head.
This is a strange thing to think about. Shampoo in hand, conditioner straight on head.
Have you experienced the spirit world?
Not a bit. I'd like to.
Are you dressing up for Halloween?
I'm thinking of dressing up as a 1950's housewife for the school parties.
Do you remember your dreams?
Little bits and pieces, but not entire dreams. But I sleep like I'm dead, I sleep so hard.
As an ER nurse, what's the weirdest thing you've seen removed from someone's body?
A man who came in stark naked and wet with a broomstick so far up his rectum that they had to crack his chest to remove it. Evidently he was sweeping in the shower and slipped. Well, that's what he said.
What will you do to celebrate reaching your target weight?
Eat an entire pumpkin cheesecake by myself.
If you could have a one night stand with anyone, who would it be and where?
Here's where I lose all you Brits. Hugh Grant. Anywhere.
HOW do you find the time to do all this blogging?
I only work part-time, my kids are in school and my husband is gone a lot. And I'm pretty efficient with things. I can whip through chores and errands pretty quick.
Do you feel guilty about it?
No, because it doesn't take any time away from anyone in my family. I mostly do it when they're not here.
Do you have a cleaning lady/cook/childminder/driver/mom living next door?
In my dreams. I might even trade Hugh for that.
How would your best friend describe you?
I don't know. How about it, friends? my two cents (aka Mrs. Weasley), pursegirl, altaglow, kathy...you want to answer this one?
What was it that first attracted you to your husband?
He was very funny, confident and smart. I like smart. And cute, too.
Have you ever considered writing a book, your writing is soooo good?
I'd write a book in a second. Problem is, no one would read it! (and a big mwah! by the way!)
What kind of car will your next car be? (Assuming the kids would never set foot in it).
I love Volvos. A nice sleek fast Volvo. (How many oxymorons in that sentence?)
And there we are. Q&A concluded. Except...a couple of them I didn't answer and I'll tell you why. Some subjects (Russia and the whole celeb thing) are way too long winded to cover here and I do plan on going into way more detail in future posts. And the idea from laurie about a defining childhood moment intrigued me enough that I want to write more about that too.
Thanks for sticking around - not just for this post, but for 200 of them. You guys deserve some sort of award for that!
