A Wee Bit of Me Wednesday... Double Dose

{one} what was your first job?
I was 14 and a hostess at a Friday Night Fish Fry at the public golf club.

{two} have you ever seen a stand up comedian?
Been to a few shows here and there. Usually drinking some fruity blended drink because they put a minimum on it. A friend had a Sweet 16 party at Second City in Chicago once upon a time ago as well.

{three} when was the last time you played mini golf?
Saturday! Seriously. The little one and I were vacationing in Gulf Shores, Alabama and since it was so nice out, we went. He wanted to go again but I put the kibosh on that. There is only so much I can take. I beat my parents too.

{four} what was the last picture you took?
AJ at the zoo on Sunday I think. We even got to hold a baby kangaroo.

{five} burnt food: yes or no?

{six} if you have a pocket full of change, what do you do with it?
It usually goes in AJ's helicopter bank unless it is a quarter than it goes in a gumball machine or parking meter.

{seven} can you touch your tongue to your nose?
No. My tongue isn't that flexible! ;)

{eight} do you scrapbook?
Yes and no. That is a hard one for me to answer. My studio looks like a scrapbooking store but...

{nine} do you buy lottery tickets?
Waste of money.

{ten} do you prefer to be in front of the camera or behind it?
A mix of both. BUT I am more often behind it than in front of it.

{eleven} if you won a trip to Disneyland/world, who would you take with you?
Steve and AJ. We may head there sometime in the near future. It is being discussed. Steve and I have been there several times together and love it!

{twelve} when was the last time you listened to a CD?
I listen to mix CDs in my car. So... this afternoon. And I got a CD from my Jaynie this afternoon so I am about to put it on my computer.

{thirteen} what spice/seasoning is your favorite?
That's hard to narrow down! I am a fan of garlic and I use it the most probably.

{fourteen} if you were in a band, what kind of music would you play?
Classic Rock, hands down.

{fifteen} if you could have personally witnessed one historical event, which one would it be?
I have NO idea. The signing of the Declaration of Independence would be a major patriotic rush. A WWII vet standing at the memorial in DC and hearing his story (still barely obtainable, I suppose).

{sixteen} if you could go back to school, what would you study?
Art and graphic design. I never thought that you could really be graded in art but the skill base is essential.

{seventeen} if you could go to one sporting event, all expenses paid, which one would you see?
I saw the Badgers in the Rose Bowl this year which would be it and I would rather go there than the Super Bowl but I think I will pick the Cubs in a really good seven game World Series.

{eighteen} do you drive an automatic or a manual?
Automatic. I am not that good with a manual.

{nineteen} are you comfortable speaking in front of people?
I can do it but I am not crazy about it.

{twenty} have you ever experienced an earthquake?
Nope. Hope I never have to!

Spring Swap: Spreading Joy

Everyone needs a little joy, right? So head on over to Jamie's blog, Lyrical Journey, and check out her Spring Swap: Spreading Joy. Deadline to sign up is Monday, March 21st. We need some snow to melt here in central Wisconsin so I can definitely use some spring joy!!

Cabin Fever 11 Mix

I started making this mix late last year and needed a couple more songs for it for 3 months. Now it finally has them and it is complete! I present to you the Cabin Fever 11 Mix for your listening enjoyment (that is if you download the music...).

A little Sufjan Stevens- love his music. And obviously this guy is kinda quirky! On one album he plays over 20 different instruments. That's talent.

Have you seen this movie? I have not which is surprising given that I am such a huge Dylan fan. A few songs were taken from it.

She is adorable and her music is beautiful. Download her now. Do it. Do it. (Sorry a little lame Starsky & Hutch humor.)

A Wee Bit of Me Wednesday...

Play along here.

{one} scruffy or clean shaven?
Scruffy is definitely sexier but it is nicer to kiss clean shaven

{two} what’s your favorite sundae topping?
Hot caramel and Oreos

{three} do you own slippers?
My slippers got a hole in them so I think they are on the floor at the back of my closet but I wear slip on house shoes all the time not really slippers.

{four} did you ever have a tree house?
A fort- yes (built of junk wood and it was actually my brother's creation), tree house- no. :( Tree houses are super cool. We always found some little area to have secret meetings though.

{five} how you do relieve stress?

{six} what’s your favorite dr. seuss book?
There's a Wocket in My Pocket probably.

{seven} have you ever taken dance classes?
No. I'm kinda a clod. It would be fun though!

{eight} which do you use more: the thesaurus or the dictionary?
I probably use both equally since I like to play word games.

{nine} what’s your favorite form of exercise?
Elliptical or a video. I really like Cardio X from the P90X series. I like to do sit-ups too although you can't really tell!

{ten} what’s the longest you’ve ever waited in line?
No idea but it is always a bore. It probably won't be so bad now with an iphone!

How I know I live with a preschooler Tuesday...

I have a Senor Pukey Pukey AGAIN! I was up from 2:30 until 4:45 a.m. with him this morning. He's not doing a whole lot today. Missed another day of school. :( He just celebrated his 4th birthday on Friday.

That's his dog, Pound Cake, with him in this picture. I overheard him a couple of weeks ago while playing tell him, "Oh Pound Cake, you don't have to call me sir. You can call me AJ." It made me giggle!

A Wee Bit of Me Wednesday...

Play along here.

{one} what color is your kitchen?
Taupe. And I have maroon red Corian counters which is a really nice combo!

{two} do you have a good luck charm?

{three} do you prefer to write with a pen or pencil?
Pen. I prefer black.

{four} can you use chopsticks?
Only the 'made for dummies' kind with the rubber band on the end. Otherwise I can do it but I don't feel really comfortable with them. I never understood how people picked up rice with them...

{five} do you prefer baths or showers?
Showers. I used to take baths when I had my own apartment. Now? Not so much.

{six} what is your favorite salad dressing?
I order/buy balsamic vinaigrette and bleu cheese most of the time. I like a good honey mustard too.

{seven} can you sing the alphabet backwards?
No. But They Might Be Giants can! It os on their 'Here Come the ABCs' album

{eight} do you have any allergies?
Only to drugs like penicillin and the cyclines which eliminates almost all antibiotics for me. Also birth control pills.

{nine} crunchy or creamy peanut butter?
Creamy. Definitely.

{ten} have you ever hitch hiked?
Not intentionally. After I got in an accident someone stopped and drove me back to camp and I got in their car not knowing who they were. Does that really count though? I would never do it intentionally. Creepy people hitchhike and creepy people pick up hitchhikers!

A Wee Bit of Me Wednesday...

Play along here.

{one} do you wear holey jeans? if so, do you buy them that way?
I try not to. I think they look sloppy. Why would I buy them that way?

{two} do you get a full 8 hours of sleep per night?
Nope. 6 hours usually is my max. Weekends it is closer to 8.

{three} what’s your favorite way to eat an oreo?
I scrape out the frosting and eat the cookie part. I don't like the frosting so much. I don't eat Oreos as much as I used to.

{four} do you wear shoes in your house?
Yes. But they are generally house shoes so they don't go outside unless it's dry out. My feet would get way too cold if I didn't.

{five} who would you call first if you won the lottery?
Steve and then my parents. But it is hard to win if you don't play! ;)

{six} have you ever been in a food fight?
I don't think so. Maybe in college but I would have been drunk and then that is why I don't remember.

{seven} do you snore?
No. And neither does my husband! Thank goodness!

{eight} do you know how fast you type?
No idea.

{nine} can you do a headstand (without using a wall)?
Nope. I can do a shoulder stand. But I don't have great balance.

{ten} how do you like your popcorn?
My favorite is in the Whirly-pop using olive oil and then add some salt. Yum. Now I want popcorn...
