The Weekly Event in Which I Chat with Myself

1. When was the last time you craved a food--what was it, and did you cave?

Chocolate. The last 72 hours have been full-on craving. Yes, I caved. I've even been eating chocolate chips straight from the bag. Semi-sweet, not my fave, but it is brown and cocoa-ish.

2. M & M's or Skittles?

Can you tell what was on my mind when I wrote this meme? M&Ms, definitely, preferably peanut.

3. Have you ever read the Bible completely through?

Yes. I did it in 2008, and I've started again for 2010. I do the Online Bible version in which you read a little from the OT, NT, Psalms and Proverbs. I must say that the challenge was a double-edged sword for me. It tested my faith but also grew my faith.

4. How long does it take you to really wake up in the morning?

Usually not very long, but a cup of coffee is a must, even if it's decaf. There's just something about a warm cup with cream that soothes me into snapping to mentally. Give me the real stuff and I become a combination of Stacy London, Kathy Lee Gifford and Bea Arthur as Maude.

5. Have you ever been on a cruise? If not, would you like to?

No, and No. Never sounded appealing to me. Weird, I know.

6. Who is your favorite actress?

Tough one. I used to like Sandra Bullock a lot but not so much any more. I like Emma Thompson a lot.

7. ______ is something that I will just never understand.

Math, football, mean people, bluegrass music, saggy pants, hunting, eating sushi, Bermuda shorts, rings on every finger. Need any more?

8. How much of a technology junkie are you?

Scale of 1-10? Why didn't you give us a standard? I'm about a 4 or 5. There's this great new thing called the "Ipod" ....

9. Do you enjoy selecting greeting cards for people, or is it more of a cultural "have to" for you?

I'm beginning to like it again. For about 10 years it has been nothing but a chore.

10. When was the last time you got a new style/haircut?

I got a haircut about 4 days ago. However, the style you see in the header above is not new; it is basically what I wore in high school, circa 1980.

11. What do you enjoy shopping for most?

Tops. Shoes. Handbags.

12. What's the last thing you think of before you leave the house?

Is this oven off? Lights out? Dog taken care of? (She stands there looking at me with her head cocked as I say, "OK, bye-bye now. You be a good girl." Oh, it breaks my heart!)

Hey! I ate sushi last night! But I only eat the kind without raw fish - crab meat, avacado, rice - what's not to love?

I like your answers as much as I liked the questions. They are great fun.

Joyce said...

You were not alone in your chocolate cravings. I found some hersheys kisses in the pantry left over from Christmas cookies and may have eaten a handful. My husband came home and asked, "What are these little white pieces of paper all over the counter?" Oops...forgot to hide the evidence.

No cruising for me either.

Have a great weekend!

Semi-sweet chocolate chips straight from the bag are AWESOME!!

Love your #7, and I agree with most of them!

Jenny wren's nest said...

That was a fun meme, if you run out of ideas on more meme questions, I have a great one.

Tabi said...

Your hair comment cracks me up! Looks great either way!

Cathy said...

Chocolate chips and M&M's. Sounds good to me.

michael said...

Great post. Me too, for the last couple of days, all that I crave for is chocolates and coffee. I have been a long time reader of you blog and I find it very entertaining and informative. Thanks for sharing this to us. Great posts!

:) I too do not want to go on a cruise. i always get the strange look when people ask...I just am not a fan of boats.

And I have been known to eat the chocolate chips straight out of the bag many times!


Mrs. E said...

No cruises and Peanut M & M's! You're my girl! Happy Friday!

Kim said...

My fav chocolate chips are Ghirardelli; so smooth and rich. *sigh* I convinced myself that eating one at a time was okay; way better than eating a WHOLE candy bar. Unless you consider popping them in your mouth one right after the other for half an hour probably equals TWO whole candy bars. lol

Oh well, we all have our vices and this is a pretty innocuous one.

KD said...

I like this RD a lot. My husband loves the chocolate chips so much that if I plan to make cookies I better REALLY hide the chips or they will be gone. He like them on peanut butter, spread on a banana - I think he thinks it's healthy that way!

H-Mama said...

why must we talk to our pets as we walk out the door. so funny... but ours comes with us everywhere {while the weather permits}. i heart chocolate too, but can't have it right now. boo!

Melanie @ This Ain't New York said...

The more I read these, the more I think we may have been separated at birth.

Paula (SweetPea) said...

You may be chatting by yourself but we are all always listening. :)
You're my girl. M & M's and peanut preferred. Yum.
Never been on a cruise. Always thought I wanted to but I'm afraid I'd get too bored.

So, why not like Sandra anymore?? She's my fave. I can't place Emma Thompson's face right now. I'll google.

I don't understand rings on every finger, eating sushi, any sport (okay more like don't like).

Haven't had a new style of hair in years. And then the only difference would be a few long layers. Well, I have some layers now but it's not by choice. It's call split ends and hair breaking lately. Not sure why.

I always wonder if I've turned off my curling iron. I've driven half way to work (a couple minutes) and turned around to check. Only once or twice was it still on.

That's so sad about Zoe.

Laura said...

I especially like your answer to number 7...I just don't get that saggy pants thing either. I actually laugh out loud when I see someone walking down the street trying to yank their pants up so they don't fall down and trip them. Do they know that pants don't HAVE to "fit" like that?
