It's Monday morning and I have had to drive one Limelet who missed his bus, I got texted by an older Limelette who needs a forgotten item at school. The cupboards are also fairly bare so I need to get groceries. You get a meme today, but at least I have a reputation for making them somewhat interesting to read. Trust me, there's a payoff today.
1. Name six things in your refrigerator
-A bowl of habanero peppers
-Leftover stewed lentils
-A jar of pickled peppers dating from the Mesozoic Era (Peter Piper did not pick them)
-Some pesto I made last week
-An odd residue underneath the bottom drawer. I think it may be something that could evolve into that monster, Zool, Sigourney Weaver faced in Ghostbusters.
2. Name six things in your freezer
-Some unidentifiable bag of rock hard goo...Frozen Zool?
-Much less venison than 11 months ago, time to get hunting!
-Whatever ice cream carton the limelets have emptied and not bothered throwing away
3. Name six things under your kitchen sink
-Our entire collection of books which spans a section of wall roughly 20 feet x 6 feet downstairs. We discovered when pipes froze and then burst this was not a well thought out location for books.
-A coffee can covered in felt, I think it was an art project one of the Limelets made. Oh be quiet! I didn't throw it away. It is serving a useful function.
-Pipes, which are helpful in draining said sink.
-A basin which functions as a foot bath or a barf bucket as need dictates
-Some very tacky linoleum installed by the previous owners, which does clean up more readily than the bare wood would. It is not, however, as tacky and hideous as the linoleum that was on the floor before we covered it up with some understated and sensible Pergo.
-A supply line for the squirty thing on the sink. This line constantly gets hung up on the shutoff valves for the sink and I wind up having a tug of war with it when I try to use the squirty thingy. Usually the supply line and shutoff valves win but I am stupid enough to think if I just yank harder one day I will win.
4. Name six things around your computer
-A macaroni encrusted mug
-A stuffed armadillo I bought in Texas because my son once had a weird dream and argued with me in his sleep about his need for a stuffed armadillo upon which to draw. I got him back to sleep by telling him we were all out of stuffed armadillos but I'd get him one when I had a chance. It took several years but I kept my promise. (Yes, we still tease him about the armadillo dream and obviously, he comes by his whacked out dreams honestly.)
-An empty Altoids tin
-A guitar slide
-A Christmas ornament Logo sent me in January.
-A beer cooler
-2 pottery things I made in 8th grade
-Postage stamps from Hong Kong, Kazakstan, Belgium, Australia, Brazil, UK, and some country that is on the Euro but I can't decipher the name of
-A fragment of the Berlin Wall
-A Swiss coin
-A blood pressure monitor
-A bag of empty printer ink cartridges
-Toenail clippers (I think my son left them here but fortunately I don't see and toenail clippings in the vicinity)
-A stack of books
-The game 'Set'
-An old delivery confirmation slip for some tie dyes shirts I mailed out.
-A heart made out of plastic fuse beads
Yes, I know that's more than 6 things....my desk is a perpetual avalanche threat with a weird collection of items and I got carried away sharing.
5. Name six things in your medicine cabinet
-Toothbrush (I saw that 'Mythbusters' episode about toilet spray hitting toothbrushes...ICK)
Very boring medicine cabinet, my apologies. I keep the exciting things elsewhere, obviously.*
6. Name six things on or around your nightstand
-A lamp with doodles all over the shade, including one of a hunter standing over a bloody deer carcass
-Olive oil body butter
-A box I sewed out of orange batik fabric
-A piece of driftwood
* Apparently Diana has located the other 'exciting things.' Here's the conversation that revealed it to me.
Diana: Mom, when you go shopping you should put personal lubricant on your list.
Me: Oh? why is that?
Diana: I noticed you're getting low.
Me: Beg pardon? How would you know that?
Diana: Oh I found where you keep it and I check every so often so I know how often you and Dad have sex.
Me: And the frequency of our sex life would be your business because???
Diana: Well, I need to know what is normal and what is not. If I don't keep tabs on you and Dad I will be forced to go have all sorts of sex myself so I can find out what is normal.
Well, at least she didn't figure out I need batteries on my list too....
