Sunday Stealing: The 25er Meme

Sunday Stealing 

Link up here if you're playing along today!

1. Tell us about something that made you laugh last night.

Hm. We were driving home from South Carolina late last night, and it got a little tense financially, so not a lot. I probably DID laugh at a name my son Jack called his sister(s). He shouldn't call names, but he does come up with some pretty funny shit!

2. What were you doing at 8 PM last night?

Sleeping while Hubs drove us home. I slept almost the whole trip, which probably has a lot to do with why he's been sleeping almost the whole time ever since!

3. What were you doing 30 minutes ago?

Filling out the camper forms for my oldest, Chloë, who is headed back to Girl Scout camp tomorrow. It's her fourth time. She's meh, not terribly excited. I always worry whether she's having a good time. But you didn't ask all that.

4. What happened to you in 2006?

We took the family to Disney World and then went on a cruise to the Bahamas. Other than that I can't stand the Bahamas, it was a pretty fun family trip.

5. What was the last thing you said out loud?

"Chloë? Chloë?" She finally fell asleep, at midnight. Whew.

6. How many beverages did you have today?

About ten Super Big Gulp-size cups of generic sugar-free Crystal Light and water. Nope, no Diet Coke, if you can believe it. (Shocker!)

7. What color is your hairbrush?

Black and purple

8. What was the last thing you paid for?

Gas in the van, on the way home last night. So exciting, my life as represented here thus far!

9. Where were you last night?

Told you that story; it'll be all right. Uh-huh, it ain't no big thing.

10. What color is your front door?

Uh, white AND ivory. Yeah, it's looking good right now. Not. (Note to self: Get exterior white paint on next payday.)

11. Where do you keep your change?

In my wallet, like all sane people. Wait, did I just call myself "sane"? Baahahahahaha.

12. What’s the weather like today?

Freakin' hot, like 105º outside. It was 92º IN the house all day until the big thunderstorm. Now it's 91º. I know, like, thank God for that cool-down, right? :\

13. What’s the best ice-cream flavor?

Peanut butter and chocolate, but the PB chunks have to be BIG, and I do NOT mean PB cups, either. Larry's Ice Cream Shop on St. Pete Beach, if it's still there, has the BEST!! (Btw, I used to work there, until I got fired for getting accepted to graduate school. What a hoot, that reason, eh?? They were mad I had other plans for my life besides breaking my neck scooping gourmet ice cream, I guess.)

14. What excites you?

Crafting. New school and office supplies. Amusement parks. Traveling, especially OUTSIDE the USA. Getting a Diet Coke (hey, it's good stuff). My friends and loved ones (wait, that's kinda redundant IMO) having good things happen to them. Good things happening to ME. I could go on, but you've gone and fallen asleep, haven't you?

15. Do you want to cut your hair?

I chopped off almost ALL my hair recently. It's very short. So, um, no. I'd be bald. And I would make an ugly baldy.

16. Are you over the age of 35?

I will be 35 in September, and I'm kind of freaked out and excited about that at the same time. 35!! Me!! I swear I JUST graduated high school, people!

17. Do you talk a lot?

If I'm with the right person/folks, I never freakin' shut up. I'm very shy, but once I'm comfortable, uh, get the duct tape because I will talk your ears off.

18. Do you watch Franklin and Bash?

Say huh? No TV here.

19. Do you know anyone named Steven?

Yep, I know a few of them. Awesome question, very thought-provoking. :|

20. Do you make up your own words?

Hell yeah. I'm famous for it, amongst me, myself and my husband. I'm good at it, too. I speak Melanese.

21. Are you a jealous person?

Not too much, although the green-eyed monster occasionally strikes. It's usually temporary, though.

22. What does the last text message you received say?

"No prob," from my friend Jules, for sending me her link. Let me know if you're an iPhone user and want a referral. It's coo'.

23. Where’s the next place you’re going to?

I'm either taking my daughter to camp tomorrow, or I'm not, because I'm sick. If not, hell if I know.

24. Who’s the rudest person in your life?

Hmmm.... my dad. Probably. Unless you mean in a funny way, in which case it would be a tie between Hubs and myself!

25. Are you crushing on anyone that you shouldn't be?

Nah. Well, okay, there's this guy, D., down at the 7-11 who is a total cutie. But I would never, and even if I would, HE wouldn't. I do flirt with him, though. At Christmas, I brought down some mistletoe and made him kiss me on the cheek - totally with Hubs' knowledge and permission, before I get any nasty-grams. He was so embarrassed. It was hilarical.


P.S. I WILL be back later with a "real" blog post. Promise!
