You all know by now that Monday night is my "Hoarders" night, so Tuesday blog posts are typically sort of lame because I'm usually camped out on the couch "ewwing" at the tube and can't be bothered with writing something really great for the Duck and Wheel. So....
Thank goodness Karen tagged me with a meme of sorts and it gave me a quick out for my post for today:
1. Describe yourself in 7 words:
Passionate, silly, dramatic, impatient, fastidious, hard-working, and funny.
2. What keeps you up at night?
My bladder, hot flashes, and worries that are unfounded come daylight.
3. Who would I like to be?
Mike Royko--a former Chicago Sun-Times columnist who just wrote stuff and was hilarious, smart, gruff and current. He rocked.
4. What am I wearing now?
My new jeans, white blouse and sweaty (sweater) that I wore to work today. It's very comfy.
5. What scares me?
Beyond the typical "something happening to my kids", I'm gonna go with spiders. I hate them. Ick.
6. The best and worst of blogging:
The pallies. Dang, they make me laugh. The worst is that I don't have enough time to visit them all each day. And I don't know them in person to hang out and laugh together.
7. The last website I visited:
Do blogs count? I don't remember a real website....uh....maybe YouTube or Facebook or something like that. I haven't had time or money to shop online lately.
8. What is the one thing I would change about myself?
That I would get out and exercise more. I'm feeling flabby and sedentary these days.
9. Slankets: yes or no?
I have absolutely no idea what that is, but it doesn't sound good, so I'm going with "no".
10. Tell us something about the person that tagged you:
I love Karen because she is such a wide variety of things I would never imagine--she always surprises me. I like how she really cares about the kids in her community and volunteers for them. I am impressed that she wrote a book and had it published. I love that she stopped in to see her dad every single morning and then took the bus to work--that is a lot of work before work. She knows a lot about sports and watches "Full Metal Jousting"--which I find just ridiculous, but I find it funny that she and I both watched it. And I love how she and Gerard are just meant for each other and are very sweet together. Mix that all in with the love for her kitties and her dog, and she's just a great pally.
I'm mixing it up and tagging a few old/new pallies to answer these IF they want. No pressure here--we are all about mulligans here at the Duck and Wheel.
1. Silver Thoughts--Heck, she needs a diversion from the wedding plans.
2. Pricilla--It will give her something to do while she's basking in her sun spot.
3. Marg--I wonder if she knows what a 'slanket' is?
4. Diana--This is what you get for beating me in 'Words with Friends'!
5. Bob Warr--He oughta have some good answers for this!
