BYOC - better late than never...

Five little questions you can copy and paste and answer in your own blog to get to know your fellow bloggers better and to give your blog brain a break!

Oh and a quick shout out – some of my dearest blogging friends helped me come up with questions again this week!


1. What’s your most favorite noise and your least favorite noise?

Most fave - a kid's belly laugh

Least fave - That serious plaintive cry that comes from your kids (I guess any kids really) where you immediately know there's really something wrong.... as in real pain.

2. If you were a character in the movie Grease – who would you be?

I used to be Rizzo, but now I'd say Cha Cha

3. What was the name of your best friend in elementary school? Are you still friends?

Kelli Gr**ntr**  (that's arbolverde in spanish).  I moved into her neighborhood when I was five and she was four (and if we're together to this day, I'll say the "I was five" part and she'll say "and I was four".  She now lives about 10 min from me, literally around the corner from my sister.  She's more like a family member.  She remembers more about my childhood than I do.  If I have to know something that happened when we were kids I can call Kelli just as much as I can call my sister - which is kind of funny.  She is a very nice person, but we were not really close any more.  She moved to an extremely conservative church and believes her values are better than anyone else's.  I still like her very much - she's sort of like a nice cousin that I see every once in a great while. 

4. Who is your current celebrity crush?

I'm not a big celebrity person - but... certainly George Clooney can always make me swoon.

5. Repeat question: How was your week in real life and in blog land?

Real life - has been fine.  Nothing too big or too bad going on.  Husband took older son to NY for their comic book convention and they both had a great time!!  MIL is still here so that's fun and a PITA at the same time.  Boys did great in sports this week.  I didn't want to kill my husband too much.  I haven't gotten over our last therapy session all the way.  He blamed me for him not doing his homework.  I have super powers that extend to controlling how others spend their time.  It must have been hell on him in school what with other people able to control whether or not he did his homework.  ( <---- see what I mean, I've been all snarky and bitchy about it all week long).  It was my fault because I'm a harsh bitch.  I make doing anything hard.  I'm not sure why he wants to keep living in such a harsh environment, but he says he does.

Blogland - uh... I've stopped going online at work completely.  It was just sucking too much time for me - and I haven't yet found a good rhythm to blogging at home fully yet.  I'll get there though.  I am loving going through people's posts about Chicago - so much fun!!  I've had two ipad face time chats with Gilly and OMG do I love that.  It's like we're sitting down to have a glass of wine together because - we ARE sitting down and having a glass of wine together.  This is the first time I've thought my ipad was the single coolest things ever!

Love you all!!

My cousin is an artist who does those comiccons and I know he was showing in NY-- he does cheesecake pin-up stuff, so maybe the boys checked it out and saw some bewbs;)

I see you as Cha Cha, I really do.

My son just got the iPad and raved about Face Time. Maybe I should get one and join in the fun. But I guess we wouldn't be able to share a bottle of wine. That'll be ok since we could each drink the entire bottle and not let anyone know.

Super jealous! :)

Amanda said...

I have never used my iPad for a video chat!! How fun!

Gilly said...

Ok seriously...ChaCha is NOT a Pink Lady!! Come ON!!! You're more Rizzo than I am. I'm Marti. I am NOT the Jan! No matter how much I love Twinkies!

I love drinking wine with you virtually. Look everyone wants to steal you from me!
