Sunday Stealing: Mac 'N' Cheese Meme

 Thieving today? Linking up here with the rest of us would be fantastic!

Mac'n Cheese Meme
Stolen from: Love me some surveys

 Can you ever get enough of mac ‘n’ cheese?


I like it, but I am not as crazy about it as my girls, Sophia and Chloë. They could eat it 24/7!

Are you allergic to nuts or dairy products?

I'm extremely lactose intolerant. Unfortunately, I love cheese, and so my stomach is always a bundle of go-fuck-yourself.

Do you think age matters in relationships? 

Yes, I do. For instance, Hubs is a full four years older than I am, and I remind him of this tremendous age difference at every opportunity. Next year, we'll be in the same decade again (I just turned 39), and you know, payback is a mofo...!

Has anyone ever called the cops on you? 

Yes, when I was an undergrad. I drank so much Goldschläger - like half of one of the BIG bottles, and I lost my ever-loving mind. Shrieking and screaming like a loony. My neighbors across the hall called the police. My good friend Shana was with me and got things squared away. But oh, my gosh. Don't ever do that!

Did you talk to someone until you fell asleep last night? 

I have NO idea. I don't even remember going to bed last night. I talk in my sleep all the time, though, so maybe the answer to this question is yes?

What’s the connection between the last person you texted? 


She's my mother-in-law, and I love her very much!

Are you in a good mood? 

My mood is okay, but it is affected by the extreme level of pain I'm in lately (another autoimmune flare), so ask me again in five minutes?

Excited for anything? 


We just got our new German Shepherd Dog, Otto von Dieter's (Otto for short), harness, so now he's all decked out and ready to train to be a service dog for Hubs during his continued recovery. I'm excited for both of them. Otto is a great dog. He's loving and sweet, takes to new commands easily, and he adores Rob. It's a match!

Do you have a hard time controlling your emotions? 

I'm Bipolar. Meds help, but without them and, sometimes, with them, I have like ZERO control over my emotions. Any more questions?

Do you like your height? 

I'm 5'1.5", and I'm okay with that. My feet and hands are tiny, and people can't always see me, and it's hard to reach stuff... but I'm cute. Right? SAY IT!

How long have you lived in your current home? 

We've lived in Homestead, Florida, for 2½ years. We may be moving again by the time our lease is up next April. I'm not sure yet. Time will tell...

Could you go a week without brushing your teeth? 

Eww, no way. I have to brush, floss, and mouthrinse at least once a day. Gross.

Have you ever given any amount of money to the homeless? 

Yes, I have. I have also given food - lots of food, including four recent bags of cat food to a homeless guy who was abundantly accompanied by felines.

Own anything from Bath & Body Works? 

No, pretty much everything I use comes from JAFRA, but my daughters own some lip balms and hand sanitizers from BBW. I'm okay with that. ;)

Have you ever had your nails so long that they curved down at the ends?

No; my nails are weak and brittle, and they just don't grow that long. My grandmother and sister, on the other hand, have had very long nails that do this. Not my favorite thing, but whatever floats your boat!

Have you ever swallowed a bunch of salt water by accident? 

Oh yes, plenty of times. I grew up going to the sea. It was a part of life to chug down some good saltwater each day!

Does it take you over an hour to go to sleep sometimes? 

Usually it does, but lately with being super anemic, I have struggled more with getting UP after 29 hours of sleep. Barely exaggerating there!

When you get home from school/work do you change into your pjs right away? 

I don't really wear a lot of PJs, though I work and teach from home much of the time. It's just like giving up, for me.

Have you ever stayed up all night and the whole next day without any sleep? 

Yep, often in my life, but again, the anemia refuses to allow that. Wait 'til I get that next iron infusion, though! I'll be up for hours (days) all over again...

Has anyone ever told you that you have pretty feet?

Tiny? Yes. Pretty? Nooooo.... I've been told my feet are quite the opposite, though! 

What is the temperature currently in the town you live in? 


 Do you ever actually drink milk alone?

I don't ever actually drink milk at all. Ever.

Thanks for stopping by!
