There was some real weirdness to the weekend, weirdness beyond what I ever would have anticipated. Let me just say to the women of the blogosphere who seemed to understand what I meant by earlier comments about my reservations regarding the weekend....thank you for being smart, strong, well balanced, and providing affirmation. I think I'd like to have a weekend away with you next time....
That being said, I think it was mostly a positive experience. The speaker was good, the weather lovely, the food delicious, the free time relaxing. There were some really terrific ladies there and I enjoyed being in their company when it was a small group or one on one.
Ok, onto the meme...
What curse words do you use most?
Unfortunately my kids have learned every curse word they know from me. Not that I use them with great frequency but when I do....erm....they all tend to fly out in a rather memorable torrent.
Do you own an iPod?
What? I couldn't hear you. I'm using my iPod.
What time is your alarm clock set to?
This is when I want to use very curse word I know.......5:15am. Obscene.
Would you rather take the picture or be in the picture?
Either, both....doesn't matter.
What was the last movie you watched?
Umm...hhmm......it was something last week. Clearly, it was a forgettable experience...
What CD is currently in your player?
The one I am trying to download into iTunes.
Do you prefer regular or chocolate milk?
Do you REALLY have to ask????
Has anyone told you a secret this week?
Well, if I told you it wouldn't be a secret now would it?
When was the last time you had Starbucks?
Hhhmm, given that I don't even know where the closest one is, that I don't drink coffee, and that I am notoriously cheap about these things......I guess that would be November in NYC when the girls wanted coffee.
Can you whistle?
I could whistle better before my wisdom teeth came in and filled up the gap in my front teeth. In 8th grade algebra I sat by the window and chirped like a bird whenever I was bored, just so I could watch the very dim teacher waddle over to the window and look for the bird she was sure was in the courtyard.
Did you watch cartoons when you were little?
Did Yogi Bear s*** in the woods? Well, I mean not that they ever showed it but...you know...
Do you own any band t-shirts?
Rubber bands? Who would wear a dress made of rubber bands? Probably the same person who would wear a dress of rubbers....
What will you be doing in an hour?
Finally seeing my nefarious plans come to fruition....MWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!
What was the last song you heard?
Gawpo singing 'The Song for a Winter's Night' by Gordon Lightfoot. I quite liked it.
Last time you cried?
Desktop or laptop?
Dance or computer?
What’s the weather like?
I don't know what it likes. I didn't ask because I didn't figure the atmosphere would answer me.
What were you doing an hour ago?
Cleaning up the weekend's worth of filth that built up in the kitchen during my absence, because you realize that if anyone washed a dish or wiped a counter the Earth might stop spinning on its axis. I figured if they could let it sit like that all weekend it could sit like that until this morning.
How many hours of sleep do you need to function?
How well do you want me to function?
Do you eat breakfast daily?
What did you do last night?
Unpacked from the weekend, sorted laundry, ran the mom taxi, diffused an adolescent freakout, read some blogs, snuggled my boy, wondered what the hell happened to the paycheck.
Do you use sarcasm?
Do you sleep on your side/back/stomach?
I hang from the ceiling by my feet.
Do you watch the news?
I aim my eyes toward the early morning news while I try not to drool on myself.
Do you have any scars?
