What’s your current obsession?
- Isn’t it obvious? In fact, I’m embarrassed to admit I’m obsessed with reclaiming my position as number one Hottest User and number one Hottest Blog on the Mom Blog Network, which I need help getting over because the bloggers in those positions like Bad Mommy Moments and The World According to Me and Parenting by Dummies are excellent blogs.
What’s you favorite color and why?
I love bright blue. Not the electric blue but the blue raspberry slurpie blue. I think it’s a fun color, cheerful, happy, delightful. I’ve painted tons of stuff with the color, including a few kid furniture pieces.
What are you wearing today?
I’m wearing a grey t-shirt with the symbol for Leo that I got a Wal-Mart. I’m wearing denim shorts that aren’t too short but aren’t any where near my knee. I don’t usually wear shoes. Right now, due to the sudden breaking of my Pandora bracelet, I’m only wearing a silver necklace with a tree charm to represent family, hoop earrings, a pair of studs, and a friendship anklet to make my BFF and I friends forever because obviously I’m 28 going on 12.
Why is today special?
It’s Friday. We’re working on Mother’s Day Crafts for the blog. I have to go get birthday party supplies, and hey, we might go get some pizza. Really, is there anything better than a pizza Friday?
What would you like to learn to do?
How long can this list be? I’d like to learn to work on cars because that just seem so sensible. I would like to learn to draw because that would be so artistic. I would like to learn the secret to getting published because that would make things so easy. I would like to learn how to get Evan to eat more vegetables and fruits because that must be a secret. I would like to learn to speak another language because my tongue is just too English. I would really like to learn to dance and play pool really well because those would make me look badass.
What’s for dinner today?
That is an excellent question. I plan to mooch off my family again tonight because my husband would hate to miss turkey dinner left-overs. I am contributing the appetizer as usual. I plan on bringing a chocolate-peanut butter apple dip, if it is still good. If not, I’ll have to whip up something. Any ideas?
What’s the last thing you bought?
An oil change. Does that count? If that doesn’t, we went to the dollar store and got a bunch of stuff for party bags. They also had Master Monkey’s staff, so I had to buy two to see which son would kill the other. I also got a toy Virgin Mary because that’s just funny. The craft supplies I meant to buy were forgotten in the need to get a temper-throwing Sean out of there.
What are you listening to right now?
Kung Fu Panda because my boys decided not to nap today. Awesome.
What’s your most challenging goal right now?
Either finding and getting Evan into a pre-kindergarten/preschool for next year OR getting my stuff together to file and get more organized before I get another late bill.
What do you think about the person who tagged you?
I think Nydia’s really cool. She’s got such talent, and she’s so creative. It’s people like her that makes me glad for the blogosphere because I know I would never have met her without it. So check out her website/blog Polymer Clay Snails.
If you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where would you like it to be?
If I’m thinking practically, it would be here in Tucson, Arizona. If I could dream, it would be in Maui.
Favorite vacation spot?
My favorite spot so far has been Maui, but since I haven’t been on a vacation since my honeymoon, almost six years ago, I would settle for anywhere remotely interesting with a hotel with maid service.
What would you like to have in your hands right now?
I like Nydia’s idea of a huge check. Enough to satisfy my practical side and pay all the bills and get rid of all our debt and still have some left over for some fun.
What would you like to get rid of?
Again, Nydia has it right when she mentioned five pounds and a bunch of flab. Of course, I need to lose more than five pounds. I would also like to get rid of all the bachelor furniture we still hjave hanging around our neck.
If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go?
For only an hour? Then I would go to a pool and swim or a nice quiet spot to blog or read. If I have more than an hour, then I would go to Maui . . . for a week.
What super power would you like to possess?
Telepathy and telekinesis. I don’t know how many times I wish I could send mental messages or do three things at once.
What’s your favorite piece of clothing in your own closet?
In my closet? Not my dresser? Well, that limits all my t-shirts, jeans, and shorts. I’ve got some really cool skirts and dresses. . . I do have The Dress that makes me drop dead hot, but I don’t think I can fit in it anymore, but I won’t give it up.
What’s your dream job?
I want to be a writer. I love sci-fi and fantasy. I would love to write graphic novels. Or I could write fairy tales. *sigh* I just want to write.
If you had $150 now what would you spend it on?
Probably Sean’s birthday. If I could dream, it would be more books.
What do you find annoying?
Wells Fargo. They insist that because they took out the payments before deposits, I had a negative balance, even though I transferred the money without a negative balance. So they stole 35 bucks and told me it was my fault. They suck.
Describe your personal style.
Easy and fun. I’m a t-shirts and jeans/shorts girl. But I have fun shirts like fairies and bright colors, and my new one is a She-Ra shirt. Come on, that’s cool.
What fashion show would you want tickets to?
Fashion show? What’s that?
Who’s closet would you want to raid?
This may sound kind of silly. But I totally loved how they dressed the character Dharma in that show Dharma and Greg that was on the air several years ago.
What are you most proud of?
Nydia stole the easiest one. I’m most proud of my boys, but if we’re talking about accomplishments, that would be going to college. I got in on scholarships. I graduated with a semester more of credits. I graduated with honors. I kicked ass.
The beautiful bloggers I’d like to know about are:
Whomever wants to do this because I won’t force you, but if you decide to do it, let me know so I can read all about you. But I think I will go out of my way and tag Ink at Inkatopia because she SO LOVES giving out homework that I thought I return the favor.
Now the rules of this tag:
1. Respond and rework: answer the questions on your blog, replace one question you dislike with a question of your own invention.
2. Tag 7 other people you would love to learn more about.

Girl, I can’t believe you gave me homework on a Friday night! Ack!
Hey, I’m jealous that you have been to Maui…in a good way, of course. It must have been wonderful!
And no, you can’t count an oil change as buying anything (though I love your toy Virgin Mary). 😉

HA! I’m loving your obsession! I gave up on it after I realized I had to compete w/you and CK and everyone else…

My superpower would be flying but with a force field around me because I don’t like bugs and if you fly there will always be bugs, in your hair and in your teeth, superman forgot to mention that. By the way, being new to the jargon of blogging what is a meme?
May 2, 2009 at 3:16 am
I’m still trying to figure out how Mom Blog Network ranks bloggers. Is it how much traffic your blog gets? How often you post? How many votes you get?
I don’t care if I don’t deserve it, I want a spot on the top ten page.
There, I said it.

I only read halfway through. I’m going to complete this and if I read too much I’ll just sit there going, “Oh, this sucks! They took all the *good* answers!”

Ink~ Maui was awesome. I’ve been twice. If you ever go, let me know. I’ll send you to all the good places. And I’m glad SOMEONE thinks the toy Virgin Mary is awesome; the husband was like, what?
Court~ I need to let it go. I need serious help to let it go. But it was so cool to be up there and I didn’t do a thing.
insider~ Good point. I never thought of the bugs. I think a meme is just a survey. Where’s Ink? She’s the English pofessor. Or Evenshine? She’s a linquist.
tlc~ I KNOW!!!! I wish I knew. You’ll be in the top ten soon enough. Then you’ll want to be number one. Wait. I got Ink in the top ten when she had the Outside Voice blog. Hmmmm. I have a plan.
KathyB!~ I know Nydia had some awesome answers.
