BYOC Bring Your Own Crazy!!!


A little ditty where we answer a few questions on Friday to get to know each other better and to give our blogging brains a break.  Copy and paste to your own blog if you so desire!  Enjoy!

1.  Sun or rain?  Roses or tulips?  Romantic movie or comedy?

Hmmmm - well... I'm a hot weather kind of girl who drives a convertible so I want to say sun, but man, I love love love a serious rain storm.  I love the sound of hard, driving rain, the smell of a storm brewing, the feel of the air kicking up or the rain lashing down.  I sleep with a sound machine at night so I can listen to rain even when it's not raining.  So, convertible be damned - I'm going with rain.

Definitely tulips - roses are for sissies (sorry to all those rose lovers out there)

What about a romantic comedy???

2.  I've been sick lately and haven't eaten in two days - except for ice cream...which leads me to ask - what's your favorite ice cream flavor?

Well... there are really just so many....  Hershey's brand.... hmmm I can't remember what it's called but it's basically cookies and cream with a peanut butter ribbon in it.  Then there was this one from Bunny Hill called... oh hell, I can't remember that one either - but it was basically a take 5 bar in peanut butter ice cream.  Peanut butter ice cream with chocolate covered pretzels and a chocolate ribbon - it was sweet and salty and chocolate and peanut butter - perfect for the week before your period - but I haven't seen it in a couple of summers.  But - I love ice cream and there are very few ways you can go wrong with it!!

3.  Are you a door locker - in your house and car?

When I used to have sex I was pretty damn anal about locking the door at the appropriate times - I'd often make Brad go back and double check it... maybe more than once (we had enough .... ahem... shall we say kids seeing more than we wanted them to incidents that I became obsessed.)  Other than that I don't lock the doors much inside the house.  I do my best to remember to close the garage door and lock the sliding glass door at night but can't say I'm 100% successful.  If my car is in the driveway and not the garage I usually lock it as every once in a while we've had a kids take advantage of unlocked cars to swipe whatever happens to be in easy reach.  Brad leaves his car in the driveway unlocked with the windows down almost every day.

4.  In the spirit of my being sick and wanting to die - tell me your "go to remedies" for when you are sick?

If I'm sick enough to not go about my regular day, I sleep and I take NyQuil to keep me that way until it goes away.  I generally don't want anyone around.

5.  Repeat question:  Summarize your week in blog land and in real life.

Blog life has been good and fun - I'm reading, but not doing much posting - I'll get back to it one of these days.

Real life is wonderful - I'm in Wyoming at my friend Camille's house.  We're having a lovely time doing just about nothing.  Yesterday throughout the day I ate an entire bag of Hershey's miniatures - I'm thinking that wasn't the best choice - but eh.

I'm completely ignoring my marital problems at the moment though I'm not sure what I'd even say anyway - but... eh.  One thing at a time and right now I'm hanging out with Camille and her wonderful family!

I am a convetible driver too. Can you say sun worshipper? I actually bought the convertible at the end of my marriage because he thought they were a silly waste of money- can you say 'in your face'??
I also sleep to a sound machine. It is either tuned to the ocean or the thunderstorm. Can't sleep without the damned thing.
Glad to have you back in blogland.

I'm not sure why "roses are for sissies" made me laugh out loud, but it did. :) Have a nice time!

Laura Belle said...

yes! Post please! I need a good gut busting story!

But glad you're having a great time with your friend!

So glad you're having fun with your friend! I also have a sound machine, though mine is on ocean waves. I don't like rainstorms. :)
