Monday Meme 37 : 2006-01-30 : Say What


1. List 5 sayings/slang/catch phrases you say a lot:


1. Crap in one hand and want in the other and lets see which one fills up first.
2. Crap fire and save the matches!
3. love yer guts.
4. I come from a long line of po’ white trash, and I’m proud of it.
5. Hugs and Kisses on all yer pink parts.


2. Do you prefer to greet people with physical contact (handshake, hug), or just verbally (saying ‘hello’ or ‘how are you’)?


I prefer physical contact greetings. I will and do however acknowledge body language from others letting me know that they do not.


3. Do you have an accent? How would you describe your voice?


I tend to pick up accents from whoever I am around. I would describe my voice as forgettable.


4. How do you usually answer the phone? If you have an answering machine or voicemail, what does your recording say?


Yello.

And, WHEN I get around to setting up a voicemail response, It is most often something humorous like “this is the refrigerator, the answering machine is on a coffee break. So leave your message with me and I will put it on my front with a megnet.”


5. Do you prefer to talk to people online (email, instant messages, etc…) or verbally (phone or in-person)?


either or is fine. But probably on line because you can “turn it off” easier. The phones can get so annoying during meals or other family time.

Wednesday Mindhump: National Straw Appreciation Day

 

midhump

Greetings, people!  Today’s hump is brought to you by Drinking Straw Day.  We’re just gonna get silly for this one.

1.  What’s your favorite beverage to suck up through a straw?

2.  Do you prefer the ordinary straight straws, or the crazy, colorful, twisted straws?

3.  Do you ever make those loud sucking noises at the end of the drink to annoy other people?  And does that annoy you?

4.  Name one thing to do with a drinking straw other than using it to drink.

The rules are, there are no rules!!! All you need to do is copy and paste the above questions into your blog and add your responses. After you’ve finished, return here and leave us a comment so we’ll know you’ve humped. Be sure your hump is linked back to http://bdinsanity.blogdrive.com/ so others can hump too.

Remember, there are no right or wrong answers. If one of the questions doesn’t inspire you then simply “pass” it. Just use your imagination!

If you don’t have a blog or you’re an exhibitionist *woo hoo* feel free to hump right here in our comments section. There’s absolutely no pressure … although it’s called the Wednesday Mind Hump you can hump on any day.

Before I give you my answers, I wanted to point something out.  Did you ever notice that it is virtually impossible to look cool or tough while drinking from a straw?  I mean Conan the Barbarian or Rocky Balboa or Dolph Lundrgren or Steven Segal or even the Mighty Chuck Norris at His best cloudn’t even have pulled it off.

Oh Well…here they are….

1.  What’s your favorite beverage to suck up through a straw?

Ants…..Just kidding.  Probably, it used to be cola, but since i am unable to drink carbonated drinks now, I guess my White Castle’s Tea.

2.  Do you prefer the ordinary straight straws, or the crazy, colorful, twisted straws?

I prefer Bendy Straws.  Not the twisty ones.  they crunchy ones you can bend yourself just to one angle.

3.  Do you ever make those loud sucking noises at the end of the drink to annoy other people?  And does that annoy you?

I prefer to call the the “Oh, waitress” call.  And yes I enjoy doing that very much.  No it doesn’t annoy me.

4.  Name one thing to do with a drinking straw other than using it to drink.

I like to roll it up and have someone else flick it to make it make a loud popping noise.

Just remember everyone.  The Good Chuck Giveth and the Good Chuck Taketh away!

Wednesday Mind Hump: post-holiday Mind Hump

 Hi everyone!  Here’s your post-holiday Mind Hump, if you desire to play after all the enjoyment.

All you have to do is tell us what you got for Christmas!

If you don’t celebrate Christmas, tell us about the most memorable holiday you celebrated this past year.

The rules are, there are no rules!!! All you need to do is copy and paste the above questions into your blog and add your responses. After you’ve finished, return here and leave us a comment so we’ll know you’ve humped. Be sure your hump is linked back to http://bdinsanity.blogdrive.com/ so others can hump too.

Remember, there are no right or wrong answers. If one of the questions doesn’t inspire you then simply “pass” it. Just use your imagination!

Well,   what did I get for Christmas?  

I got…

  •  The DVD of “Mr Deeds” from Stephani
  • 2 Chunky Bars from Mary
  • A Nice Blue Sweater from Grandma NiNi
  • A Pair of Black Boots from Mary
  • A Nice Black Jacket from Mary
  • The Puff The Magic Dragon Video from Grandma Nini.  Grandma NiNi didnt even know this one was on my list of ten things.   She hadn’t seen it on any of my wishlists.  I hadn’t even mentioned it to her.  As she put it.  She knows her Seannie and she knew I would like this movie and would want it.  She was right.
  • AAA membership from my sister, Lisa.
  • Buckeyes from Mary’s Sister, Therese.
  • The DVD of “Yours,Mine, and Ours” (the original with Henry Fonda and Lucille Ball) from Mary

Over all it was a FABULOUS Christmas for me and presents had nothing to do with it.

Monday Meme 31 : 2006-12-18 : Tis the Season

Monday Meme 31 : 2005-12-19 : Tis the Season

1. Are you going anywhere for the holidays? If you could go anywhere for the holidays, where would you go?

No. I’ll be Right here in good old Kentucky. I mean we do go over to Grandma NiNi’s for Breakfast Christmas Morning and Mary takes the kids down to my parents house for a little while so they can receive there gifts from them. But then we come back home. If I could go anywhere for the Holidays it would either be Back to Cosumel, Mexico again or to Moscow. We went to Cosumel once before as a family and it was really nice to be there so close to Christmas and I would like to extend the stay OVER the Holiday once. Moscow because I have always wanted to see Russia and more specifically Moscow in the winter and what better time than Christmas.

2. What is your funniest holiday memory?

I can’t really think of a Funny Funny one. The kids playing in the Box the $400 power wheels jeep came in insteqd of with the jeep itself?

3. Do you like your presents to be a surprise, or do you ask for hints and try to peek at them?

I like the suprise. Not just my own gifts either. I don’t want to know what the kids are getting each other either. I want everyone to be as suprised as possible as much as possible. Me included.

4. Did you put up any holiday decorations this year?

Yes had them up the week before Thanksgiving.

5. Do you believe in Santa Claus? If not, did you ever? When did you stop?

Yes and no. For my kids I do…and I certainly believe in the spirit of Christmas. But that childlike belief left me around 8 years old when I discovered through kids at school and my parents.

Friday’s Feast One Hundred and Twenty Two

Friday, December 15, 2006

Appetizer
What was your very first job with a paycheck?

Working at Pasquale’s Pizzeria.  Believe it or not, I really loved that job.  I mean it was alot of fun.  Working for John Besse was a hoot.  He was a really cool boss.  I think he was more interested in being our buddy than making alot of money.

Soup
Did you ever lose something really important to you?

Yeah.  The rent.  I once gambled away an entire paycheck at a carnival game.  Mary was there with me.  I was very young, and VERY stupid.  I made a promise to the Lord then and there that if he let me make it through that and not lose the roof over my family’s head, I would never gamble again.  We kept the roof over our head.  We even managed to eat that next to weeks.  I haven’t so much as bought a lottery ticket since.  I don’t plan on it either.  I will keep my word.

Salad
What is the best Christmas present you ever received?

Well, baby Joee is the best.  But I suppose if you mean a traditional gift, I would have to say my Shogun Warrior  Jumbo Machinders come to mind.  I got Dragun, Raydeen, and later on another christmas came Godzilla.  There was also The Year that Mary got me my first pet Iguana that I named Chuck.  Later he died and that day my mom brought home Ground chuck for me to fix for dinner.  She was not a very sensitive woman.

Main Course
Tell about a favorite “hang out” place for you and your friends when you were in high school.

This would be the same as My first Job.  We hung out alot at Pasquale’s.  I told you John wanted to be our Buddy.  We also would Skateboard alot so that meant driving around finding places to skate.  We went to High-school Dances, Football Games, Boosted beer from the Catholic school Basement, Hung out at Boob’s house in his room.  Just lots of places.  Hey I never said I was an angel.

Dessert
Name something that always brings a smile to your face.

When Frankey (the Basset Hound) wakes me up at night around 3 AM to be let out by whimpering and licking my face.  Yes, it is supremely annoying but it is also sweet and I can’t help but smile when this 7 inch long, 4 inch wide wet tongue wipes up the side of my face and I cover my head  and he goes to the foot of the bed and gets under the blanket at my feet and belly crawls all the way up the bed next to me so he can lick my face again to wake me up so he won’t have an accident in the house.
