NBPM3 - Monday Meme - No-Theme Meme

(c) 2008 Ms. Huis Herself at

I've decided that Mondays in November are going to be simple, easy, lazy posts. Therefore, welcome to our first Monday Meme! I swiped this No-Theme Meme from Mary P. over at It's Not All Mary Poppins.

What is your salad dressing of choice?
I don't have one special favorite. With standard supper-club choices, I'd pick Thousand Island, but if there's a honey mustard or poppy seed or raspberry vinaigrette, I'd probably pick that.

What is your favorite sit-down restaurant?
Around here I love Victoria's. It's WONDERFUL Italian food. If we were back in Blarney, I'd say The Lemon Tree, right on the square, or if you want less fancy, the bar attached to it. Delicious food, all of it.

What food could you eat every day for two weeks and not get sick of?
Cheese! So many kinds, so many ways to eat it.

What are your pizza toppings of choice?
Cheese! Oh wait, that was last question. Usually sausage & mushroom, sometimes pepperoni & pineapple (can't stand ham/Canadian bacon), chicken & artichokes if that's an option.

What do you like to put on your toast?
Butter. If it's on hand, sometimes with pesto or olive tapenade on top. Or, you know, cheese.

What is your wallpaper on your computer?
Right now it's a picture of my two girls at the apple orchard. Not one of these, but similar.

What color cell phone do you have?

Are you right-handed or left-handed?

Have you ever had anything removed from your body?
Wisdom teeth.

What is the last heavy item you lifted?
Both girls at the same time. Totes in the basement full of books.

Have you ever been knocked unconscious?
Only for the wisdom teeth.

If it were possible, would you want to know the day you were going to die?
Gosh, I don't know. I guess if I knew it was far in the future, I'd take more chances now. But if it was soon, I'd be terribly, terribly depressed. I think I'd rather not.

If you could change your name, what would you change it to?
Miranda? Aoife? (Ok, only if we were in Ireland. Too confusing for here.) Chloe? Claire? Moira? Oh, I know - Maeve. Maybe... Did I ever mention that we didn't have EITHER girl's name picked out before she was at least 24 hours old? Names are hard.

Would you drink an entire bottle of hot sauce for $1000?
No. Absolutely, positively NOT. I can hardly handle medium salsa. You know how cartoon characters have steam/smoke coming out of their ears if they eat something hot? That's exactly how my Eustachian tubes feel when I eat anything hotter than half-mild/half-medium salsa. No, I'm not kidding.

How many pairs of flip flops do you own?
None. I have issues with that piece that goes between your toes. Ok, now I'm all like wiggling my feet and toes around in horror. But it's a shame, 'cuz there are a lot of cute shoe styles like that.

What do you want to be when you grow up?
Um, healthy, wealthy, & wise?

Favorite Season?
Fall, definitely.

Favorite Holiday?
I LOVE Halloween! Costumes are FUN!

Favorite Day of the Week?
Saturday. There's a chance of sleeping in (depending on the kids), plus the whole weekend still stretches out in front of you, full of promise & possibility.

Favorite Month?
September is nice. 'Course, our anniversary is then, which contributes. :)

Missing someone?
Well, it'd be nice to be closer to friends and family to more fun and visits, but hey, WI is closer than Ireland...

What can you not wait to do?
Travel again. Once we've got more money & the girls are a better travel-able age.

What’s the last movie you saw?
I finished Aeon Flux last night, which I'd gotten from the library. In the theatre, I think it was Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

Do you smile often?

Speaking of travel - we will take the girls anytime you want a kid free vacation. Just thought I would put that out there!!!
