I've been visiting blogs this morning.
I have laundry to do and bathrooms to clean.
I think it is better to blog than to clean. (I'm sure that's a Golden Rule or something.)
As I was visiting blogland today I found two different blogs that had "Days Until Christmas" counters up!
Stop it will ya?
This is the first month I haven't seen snow.
I'm emotionally not strong enough to handle thinking about how many days until Christmas.
Well, speaking of Christmas sorta.
I was given an award from Alexes at One Cluttered Brain.
It's kinda like Christmas cuz it's all about Naughty or Nice.
I think you are supposed to determine if I'm NAUGHTY or NICE.
So I'll answer the required questions and I'm sure you'll agree that I'm as pure as the driven snow.
#1: What is the silliest prank you've ever played on someone?
Well, it could have been the one when I was in high school and I was at Shakey's pizza and there was a table of guys behind me and my friends and they were drinking beer. They got up to go to the bathroom and I unscrewed the big container of pepper flakes and dumped the entire thing in the guys mug. Then we took off without finishing our pizza, then I got a ticket for running a stop sign. OR it could have been the time I stuck an Alka-seltzer tablet in my uncle's mouth who was snoring. (He's never forgiven me 40 years later) Or it could have been the time I put an entire tube of KY under the door handle of the police officers car when they were hanging out in the ER one night shift. (I may have impulse control issues.)
#2: If you could go on a trip anywhere out of this country, where would it be?
Scotland. I love kilts and bagpipes. And I'd like to tromp the cemeteries and look up my peeps.
#3: Who played an influenctial role in your life?
My grandmother. Constant, stong testimony, non-judgemental, an angel. I miss her.
#4: Are you OK with your spouse being friends with an ex?
Well, he doesn't have an ex-wife so I'm assuming ex-girlfriend. Uh, he say say "hi". Then he can walk away and tell me how wonderful and beautiful I am and expound upon the many millions of reasons he's lucky to have me.
#5: Favorite candle scent?
Smells give me horrible migraines so I'm careful.
lotions, perfumes, candles, hairspray...eek! Then I'm over the toilet worshipping the porcelain idols/
(Sometimes I hate going to church cause I end up next to someone that thinks it's enjoyable to taste their perfume.)
Yankee candle has a Christmas Wreath candle that I love. In fact I burned it last month when it snowed. (yes, last month)
#6: Next movie I'm excited about seeing.
Hmmmm, I can't think of one. I wish they would do another Jason Bourne movie, then I would be excited.
#7: You must have one word to be banned from the dictionary and no longer spoken or used. What is it?
Easy. It would be the four letter bomb word. I work in the ER with a female doc that must use that word a billion times a shift. I have threatened her with Tabasco sauce and even popped her on the mouth one time. HATE that word.
#8: Do you have a relative in jail?
Not any more.
#9: What crazy fads were popular when you were in high school?
Hash Jeans. I miss the bod that used to fit in those babies! I was hawt!
#10: Have you ever been mentioned in a newspaper or on TV?
Ya, an advertisement for me being new at a Beauty Salon and once in our local paper in the cooking section.
Wow, I didn't realize I was so boring!
Thanks Alexes! You are hilarious and I suggest that everyone head over there and check her out.
Now I get to pass this on to 5 other people!
Of course I'm going to pick on Wendy. I have to. It irritates her. I love doing that!
Next is Gigi, cuz I think there might be more to this Southern girl than meets the eye.
Serene is next. I need to see just how serene she really is!
Then it would be Lisa. I can't wait to see what she comes up with.
Kim, ya you! Spill it!
OK I've delayed long enough. The bathrooms are calling my name.
But before I sign off........there's 151 shopping days until Christmas.
