Shameless Blog Filler

I saw this on my mom's blog and decided, since I am procrastinating have nothing better do, why not play along?

50 random things about you! If you opened this, FILL IT OUT! Learn 50 things about your friends, and let them learn 50 things about you!

1. Do you like cheese? Yep.

2. Have you ever smoked? Not once. I can't even stand the smell. And no, I've never had an alcoholic drink, either.

3. Do you own a gun? I don't. Prince Charming might...

4. Do you like listening to Christmas music? Yes. Non-stop, 24-7 until Christmas is over. Not one of the things Prince Charming loves about me.

5. Do you get nervous before doctor appointments? Nope. Only before my girls have to get shots or blood work done. And then I make Prince Charming go in with them.

6. What do you think of hot dogs? I'm in favor of them.

7. Favorite Christmas song for all time? There is no way I can possibly answer this question. This Christmas my favorite is anything from the new Sara Groves Album. Next Christmas: who knows?

8. What do you prefer to drink in the morning? Orange juice.

9. Can you do push ups? Technically: yes. Practically: rarely.

10. Who is your favorite Grey's Anatomy Character? Is that the one with all those promiscuous, whiny, self-absorbed doctors?

11. What are your favorite pieces of jewelry? My engagement ring and my silver hoop earrings. I wear both every day.

12. Favorite hobby? Reading! Writing! Blogging! Words!

13. Do you eat "exotic" foods? Sure, but no more sushi after that food poisoning incident when Prince Charming and I were dating.

14. Do you have A.D.D.? I don't believe in A.D.D.

15. What one trait do you hate about yourself? I don't think I know any of you well enough to share this little tidbit.

16. Middle Name? Lee

17. Name 3 thoughts at this exact moment? "I wonder if Sweet Pea will sleep very long during nap time, I ought to be doing laundry, and what is that stuck in my teeth?"

18. Name 3 things you bought yesterday? Birthday cups, plates, & napkins; stocking stuffers; chocolate.

19. Name 3 drinks you regularly drink? Water, iced tea, juice

20. Current worry right now? How can we possibly get everything done before Sunday night?

21. Current hate? I'm a lover, not a hater.

22. Favorite place to be? At home, curled up on my couch, reading. Preferably with chocolate handy. If I can't be at home my next favorite spots are: the library and Grandma's house.

23. How will you bring in the New Year? At church listening to my husband preach while I wrestle three over-tired girls and attempt to last through the entire service. Then at Grandma's house. Again, wrangling three over-tired girls and, by this point, an over-tired husband.

24. Where would you like to go? Great Britain. And I am going. Next year.

25. Name three people who will complete this? No idea, but I hope Lulu does.

26. Do you own flip flops? Two "good" pairs and one "work" pair. And I only buy them from Old Navy. A girl's gotta have standards.

27. What shirt are you wearing? Dark green t-shirt with 3/4 length sleeves.

28. Do you like sleeping on satin sheets? Nope. Cotton will be fine.

29. Can you whistle? Enough to impress my kids but that's not saying a whole lot.

30. Favorite color? Red!

31. Would you be a pirate? No way. I don't even like movies about pirates. (And I very much dislike movies with pirates that star Johnny Depp, but I digress.)

32. What songs do you sing in the shower? Anything. I sing in the car too.

33. Favorite girl's name? Other than my three daughters' names (which you know I am not willing to share) I think my favorite is probably Anna. Maybe. Sophia is right up there too. And then there's Julia or Juliet...

34. Favorite boy's name? Well, my obvious favorite is the name we've had picked out for years, just on the off chance that we ever have a son. (Which is looking less and less likely, I must say.) Other than that, my favorites are my dad's and my brother's. (Yes, even more than my husband's. Sorry.)

35. What's in your pocket right now? No pockets.

36. Last thing that made you laugh? Sweet Pea, playing outside, wearing purple sun glasses.

37. Best bed sheets as a child? Garfield twin size sheets. And the Mickey Mouse ones when Lulu would let me have them.

38. Worst injury you've ever had? Stitches, three times. I've been very blessed in the injury department: no broken bones, no hospitalizations (other than giving birth), no serious illness.

39. Do you love where you live? I love the people I live near but I wouldn't say I love this area of the country.

40. How many TVs do you have in your house? One. Used for watching movies. (And Prince Charming watches one show: The Office).

41. Who is your loudest friend? My friends are all soft-spoken, lovely, gracious people and I cannot be expected to answer this. (That or I'm the loudest.)

42. How many dogs do you have? None. I would like to have a dog, if we had a fenced yard, but a long time ago Prince Charming said we could have dog or another child, so we had Tigger.

43. Does someone have a crush on you? What a ridiculous question.

44. Do you get embarrassed easily? Yes.

45. What is your favorite book? I suppose I should say the Bible, and I do love it very much. Other than that, I've gotta go with Pride and Prejudice. Or Persuasion. Or Emma...

46. What is your favorite candy? Reece's. Cups. Pieces. It's all good.

47. Do you know all the words to the Fresh Prince theme song? Sadly, once upon a time, I did. Fortunately I no longer do.

48. What song do you want played at your funeral? Something very cheerful. The Hallelujah Chorus or Wonderful Grace of Jesus come to mind.

49. What were you doing 12 AM last night? Talking to Prince Charming.

50. What was the first thing you thought of when you woke up? "Five more minutes".

17. Stuck in your teeth? You noticed that while blogging? Wow, you are one talented multi-tasking person!

21. Nice to know you are so contented. :) Before today the answer might have read "Being on Blogger's 'Spam' list."

31. I like those movies! I guess we're not as alike as I thought. lol

36. Thankfully, the day actually had moments of sunshine in it, unlike all in recent history.

37. I never knew those sheets were so popular but you and Lulu both mentioned them. I feel guilty now for not preserving them. :)



(I learned lots of new things about you, today. At least I think I did. Thanks for participating!)

I promise to be candid and you can be too. Blogging is best when it's a conversation. Thanks for taking the time to read this post and respond. I enjoy hearing what you have to say.
