Just a Few Questions Please

I write so much about my family and myself that I thought today would be a good day to find out more about YOU. Yes, you. with the hair.

And so I'll ask a few questions and just so you don't feel put on the spot, I'll answer them too (but not instead of you, just along with you -only I can't hear you at the same time and it's all typed out so you can't really hear me either... ).

*Ahem* Let's get started.

1. If you have a blog, what was your reason for starting it?
I DO have a blog! Thank you for noticing. I first started this blog when my dear friend suckered convinced me to do it by telling me it would help us keep up with each other since we live so far away. Little did I know it would become a vice and the PRESSURE to top each post, to talk about interesting things besides the latest diaper catastrophe, to let the whole wide world know what a weirdo I can be.... Um. What was the question? Right. I just wanted to keep up with friends and have fun with it.

2. What is your favorite movie line?
There are so many movies and so little time.... Hm. The quote I most closely relate to at this time is that of Mr. Incredible from The Incredibles. "No matter how many times you save the world, it always manages to get back in jeopardy again. Sometimes I just want it to stay saved! You know, for a little bit? I feel like the maid; I just cleaned up this mess! Can we keep it clean for... for ten minutes!" Did you really think it would be anything else? I have three little boys after all.

3. What is your favorite color?
That's an easy one. Red. Wait. Do you mean the color I like to wear? or the color I like my interior decorating? or my favorite color of crayon? Does anyone else love the line from Monty Python's Search for the Holy Grail when Tim asks, "WHAT is your favorite color?" and the guy goes "Blue. No, yellow." and he gets thrown into the thingamagig because he got the answer wrong? Okaaaay. Next question?

4. How do you feel about Christmas being one week away?
Christmas. It's such a wonderful time of the year. My favorite really. I love the visiting, the food, the games, the laughter, the expression on people's faces when they open their gifts unless, of course, they hate it. I'm sorry. Did you say ONE week? As in 7 days? I gotta go.

*Disclaimer: I am in no way a professional interviewer and somewhat stink at casual conversation. My apologies for any awkwardness to you or for you. Yep.

1. No I don't have a blog because I spend WAAAYYY too much time enjoying my niece, Sarah's blog!
I thought I was a fairly good writer but she makes mine look BORING!!!!
2. Mine is "life is like a box of chocolates; you never know what you'll get next." - Forrest Gump.
3. Purple unless it's turquoise. So would that be "purquoise" when mixed together 'cause that's how I like 'em best.
4. Can hardly wait to see Gabe crawl into his new wagon I'm giving him. Shopping is all done and I only have one more pot blessed dinner. Whew! I'm overdosing on pot lucks and cookies!

Good thing I'm not going to PA for Christmas because I don't think my waistline would stretch any farther - and they have LOTS of food there. But I'll sure miss all my favorite fans - and critters, Jesse and Zach. Woke of from a nap at Thanksgiving and had
furry Zach in bed with me.
What a life! MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!

I saw you were a follower and came to check out your blog which is delightful. May I steal your interview questions?

Sarah and the Gentlemen said...

Shucks... Thank you, thank you very much. :0)

Mummy, I've never had such a dark background before BUT it's for Christmas!

Jungle Mom, of COURSE you may steal those questions!

Found you on SITS. This is a great idea. I may have to do the same on my blog (guess I just answered the first question)

1. I started my blog, (this one, anyway) when I had to daughter to share all my baby-related thoughts with people.

2. "Simba, you deliberately disobeyed me, and what's worse, you put Nala in danger!" Lion King. I just like saying that.

3. Green, its so peaceful

4. I'm completely cool with xmas being a week away bc i dont celebrate it, but happy shopping to everyone who does!
