Old School Blogging

This sounded fun and oh so nostalgic. Since I have nothing else, this it shall be! (Here is the link up)

What is the last thing you watched on TV? Flipping Vegas. I'm still reeling from that reptile house. I'm pretty sure that python laid eggs in that backyard and those new homeowners have inherited a yard full of snakes. GOOD LUCK WITH THAT, but I love the color of your laminate floors!

When did you last step outside? What were you doing? I think the last time was picking up the girls from a birthday party. Saw a lot of friends, chatted for a while, and when I got back The Husband was incredulous as to why it took so long. Um. I'm A TALKER sometimes.

What is on the walls of the room where you are? Nothing exciting- cabinets? I blog from the kitchen island.

If you became a multi-millionaire overnight, what would you buy? A one story home close to the mountains. The arthritis is CREEPING IN. (If I were to get carried away, I'd move somewhere cold and rainy) And fill the garage full of expensive cars, of course. One of which would have to be a vintage Volkswagen bus. And some jewelry, I'm getting to that age that wants shiny sparkly rare stones on my wee fingers. Big stones.

Tell me something about you that most people don't know. What haven't I told you guys?! I'm pretty sure you know all the trivia by now. I cannot stand to touch cotton. I hate the taste of mushrooms and all seafood, yes even shrimp. I bluff and say I'm allergic sometimes in large groups, but really I just dislike fishy ocean taste. The ocean freaks me out in general. There is so much unexplored area, so many species we don't know about! GIANT SQUIDS, PEOPLE.

Who made the last incoming call on your phone? The Husband. He calls each night on his way home and we chat as he drives. It's a little ritual, our first chance to hash out the start to answer "how was your day today?"

If you could change something about your home without worry of expense or mess, what would you do? First, fix the ridiculous mess that is the wood floor on the stairs. Somebody did it WRONG WRONG WRONG. I'd also like to completely reconfigure the master bath, get rid of the tub, expand the shower, and create way more counter space. I have it all planned out in my head... and have been watching too much HGTV, obvs.

What was the last thing you bought? A new carbon monoxide detector and a couple water filters for our fridge. JAZZ HANDS.

Would you go bungee jumping or sky diving? Can I sign up for both, please?

If you could eat lunch with one famous person, who would it be? This is where some clarification would help- alive or dead? Alive would be Pete Holmes, I'd love to have a Fleegan lunch and talk about crazy theories about the universe. (I also have a huge celeb-crush on him) Dead would be... well, I'd have to think about that, there are a lot of people I'd like to have a little chat with.

Which store would you choose to max out your credit card? Etsy. Or HomeGoods. This is only barely a hypothetical question.

Is the glass half empty or half full? Depends on the time of day; Are the children awake or asleep?

What's the farthest-away place you've been? Hawaii. In high school. With my family. Like a dork. As an adult, I have not been bitten by the traveling bug. It's a lot of work. And I REALLY like my very own, most assuredly not bed bug infested mattress.

What's under your bed? A bunch of stray dryer sheets. Man those things run loose, like tumbleweeds on the prairie.

What is your favorite time of day? Bedtime. The minute I slide between the sheets and snuggle into a good book before sleep; It's the best.

What inspires you? Good art. A fantastic painting, sculpture, work of theatre, music, etc. And lately the landscape around me. For years I have actively hated this desert with every fibre in my being. I'm coming around to seeing the beauty in the rocks, the mountains, the sweeping vistas. Quiet is also inspiring; I get so little of that.
