Potatoes, sharks, Jello, pudding, keyrings, french fries and so on

This week we will answer some strange, off the wall questions, thought up by Berleen's daughters demons (ages 12 & 14). Brought to you by Berleen, the color green and the number 147. Go play here.

1. Do you like potatoes? What kind? I love all sorts of potatoes, but nothing is better than a big bowl of mashed 'tatoes smothered in butter!
2. If you were dressed up in a fish costume and you went underwater and a shark saw you, what would you do? I would use my fishy costume fin and get the hell outta there! Then I'd probably become shark-kibble.
3. Does Jello make you happy? It doesn't make me sad, does that count?
4. If you could have any animal, exotic, extinct or other type, what would it be? a cougar. They are so cuddly looking! And another golden retriever.
5. Would you fill up a pool with pudding and jump in? No. Because something tells me that you would die from it....
6. When you are feeling icky with the sickness feeling, what is your first choice for feel-better medicine?Blackberry Brandy? Or NyQuil...
7. Do you count with your fingers or in your head when it comes to mathematical equations? all fingers, baby!
8. Do you have any key chains on your keyring? How many? What kind? I just have the button to open the truck as a keychain. Everyone yells at me that I'm going to wreck my ignition when I have keychains on.
9. What do you dunk your french fries in? Mayo. Preferrably german mayo, but it's been a couple decades since I've had that.
10. When I say "Moo I'm a duck" do you think of a cow or a duck? a duck that goes moo.
11. If you had the chance, would you go to the very bottom of the ocean? Nope. I have this claustrophobia of being immersed in water.
12. Would you rather be spiderman or batman? catwoman! I can answer that, right?
13. Would you rather be in a hurricane or a tornado? Tornado. It's a lot quicker.
14. Do you like pumpkin pie? Do you cheat and buy a premade one or do you make it from scratch? Heck, do you even make pumpkin pie at all? I LOVE pumpkin pie and I've made it both ways... usually I just cheat and buy a premade one and bake it.

Below Fricken Zero!

So the husband wants me to go with him on this snowmobiling trip in February... way the hell up north in the boonies of Minnesota... way up by the Canadian border where nothing with warm blood lives. We're talking -40 below weather! Yeah, thats negative, as in below fricken zero. I'm supposed to go up there, freeze my ass off and sit behind his ass on a snowmobile. Why did I even agree to this? Good Lord, what have I done?
I still haven't committed to this 100%... I mean we're talking below zero - like instant ice. I have a low blood pressure to begin with and I've been wearing long johns since September. I ain't a cold-blooded woman!
I try to be a good wife and try to get into this whole snowmobile fiasco that he's gotten himself into, but why can't he just get into water-skipping or something? (thats where you snowmobile across water.... in the summer... when it's warm!) Maybe I'll take it up and he'll forget about snow.
Ok, nevermind that. I don't look good in a bikini anymore.
So thats my whine of the day - to go or not to go. It's gonna be cold. Cold... freezing. Ack! I don't know what to do.
He better never question my fricken love for him if I do go.

Not again! You people are killing me....
