A bunch of silly questions for Sunday

Cheers to all us thieves!

Sunday Stealing: The Monkey's Meme

1. Name one person who made you smile today:
I haven't smiled yet.
2. What were you doing at 8am this morning?
it hasn't hit 8am yet.
3. What were you doing 45 minutes ago?
I was snuggled up as tight as can be against the husband, a.k.a. "spooning", trying to stay sleeping. I don't want to get up...
4. What is your favorite candy bar?
I swear this is the most asked meme question ever and I refuse to answer it.
5. Have you ever been to a strip club?
No, but I've had a male stripper come to a party I was at. It was kind of stupid.
6. What was the last thing you had to drink?
did you not read that its not even 8am yet? Until it comes in IV form, I can only drink coffee so fast before I move onto other things
7. What was the last thing you ate?
a mushroom off of Demon #2's piece of pizza last night.
8. The last sporting event you watched?
I'm not sure... I don't remember.
9. Do you go to church every Sunday?
Nope. I used to, got the demons even going but they saw the ugly side of organized religion way too fast and decided they didn't want to be a part of it.
10. Do you prefer Chinese food over pizza?
Chow mien over pizza? I'd have to yes to that one. Only chow mien though.
11. What are you doing tomorrow?
working like I do everyday.
12. What do you think of when you hear Australia?
the country makes noise? Sweet. What does it say? I must be tone deaf to hearing countries. Now when an Australian man speaks... I think nasty naughty thoughts. Hubba hubba!
13. Biggest annoyance right now?
right now I'm pretty mellow... nothing is annoying me and can't think of anything off hand. Oh wait... I got one! There are HUGE fish out at the lake that we can see from shore but the somes-a-bitches won't bite on nothing.
14. Last song listened to?
I think it was Toby Keith's "God Love Her" on the radio on our way home from the lake yesterday.
15. Do you have a maid service clean your house?
thats some funny shit right there.
16. Are you jealous of anyone?
it used to be Mel Gibson's wife, but not so much anymore. So now I guess I have to start being jealous of the new girlfriend.
17. Is anyone jealous of you?
I don't know, are you?
18. What do you usually do during the day?
work... go visit my father...
19. Do you hate anyone that you know right now?
it would be sort of stupid to hate someone that you don't know, wouldn't it?
20. Are you thinking about someone right now?
I'm trying to think of someone that I don't know that I hate. It ain't working so well. I'll just go back to thinking about an Australian or Mel... much better.

Thursday Thunker's Week! Take Two

These questions were submitted by Thursday Thunker participants! (so don't blame Kimber & Berleen for the quality of the questions.....)

we are picking up where we left off last week, which explains why we are starting with #21 instead of #1. Great work on the questions submissions everyone! It gave Kimber & I a much needed mental break. We posted these questions just as they were listed on the participant's blog.
21. How many states have you been in?
14 I believe. I've driven through quite a few.
22. If a sexist Man is called a pig, what is a sexist Woman called?
a bitch? Which is technically an animal, afterall.
23. You see the one person who you absolutely despise. If you were guarentee'd that he/she couldn't say or do anything back to you.... What would you do??
walk away... it's really not that worth it.
24. How many states are to the right of you? And don’t give us a map to look at.
5 if I'm sitting with myself facing south, which I am now... but if I'm facing north, I'd have to get out a map and count.
25. You can go anywhere in the world for free. Where are you?
Australia just to hear the men talk.
I'm assuming none, unless you were typing one-handed.
27. Are you a boxing fan? Do you think there will be a rematch of the Hatton-Pacquiao fight?
Nope. Not a fan and I have no clue what the hell you are even talking about
28. What is the most disgusting thing you have ever eaten?
green olives.
29. Is it cloudy right now?
Yes. And I wish them clouds would drop some water out of them
30. What is your dream job?
to work with animals. A zoo. With big cats & their cubs.
31. Someone gives you a $500 gift card to WalMart or Target. What are you going to buy?
Lame alert!!!! I'd buy groceries.
32. When you were little, what did you want to be "when you grow up"? And, how much different is your occupation now from where you thought it would be when you were younger?
I wanted to be a veterinarian. Totally different now because the closest I get to working with animals is having them sit on my feet while I sit here and work at the computer.
33. what was your favorite toy as a child?
My Little Pony. But honestly, my favorite toy was anything I could find outside. Usually neighbors dogs or something.
34. How do you think these things up??
I can't speak for Kimber, but I tend to stare out my kitchen window and type out whatever enters my head.
35. Why do you think so many "fake" veterans get away with pretending? Why don't people question them more (especially the media who eats up their stories?)
I guess I'm a little confused at this question. I didn't realize there was a problem with people going around saying they were in wars.
36. What is the last place you had a good cry and why?
I really don't remember.
37. What do you mean?
I don't know, what do you mean?
38. Which Sesame Street Character do you relate with the most and why?
who doesn't love Elmo?
39. What song one would you listen to over and over if you absolutely had to?
there's a few Johnny Cash songs that I can't get sick of.
40. Did you ever make what you believed at the time to be a horrible mistake - that in hindsight turned out to lead you on the best path in your life?
Yep. I don't really want to get into details about it, though. Lame, I know.

Wow. Second time in this post I've used the word "lame" and I rarely use that word.

41. If you could change one thing on your person, what would it be?
Does this mean physically? My teeth.
42. What’s your favorite show to watch on television nowadays?
There's a few. House, Wife Swap, Days of our Lives, CSI... do I need to continue?
43. Do you believe there is life after death?
I'd like to believe there is and I hope there is, but it's hard to say I "believe" because one just really doesn't know.

It's a Dog's Life

(Sunday Stealing is here....)

It was our actual first day out at the lake this year... the girls had crappy luck at fishing (crappy - not crappie) and it was pretty short lived. They could see the fish, they just weren't biting.

It sure didn't stop Saki from enjoying the water & sunshine. No fish biting meant more time for the girls to play with her, so she was happy!

Last one in is a rotten egg!
If you're gonna go in - go in all the way!If you throw, she will retrieve.
after a nice swim there's nothing better than a famous dog shake!
and after all that fun, then it was time to play some fetch with the oversized Frisbee.
Saki, DROP IT!! (she loves to fetch, but she just never wants to let go!)

You realize there are 26 letters in the alphabet?

Depends on the song, honestly. I think I could make it to Hollywood, but not far after that I'm sure.

The Notebook. Gets me everytime.

Are you a rose expert?

I had/have 3 different rose bushes planted in front of my house. If you know my history, I plant roses every year and every year they die. Well, I decided to give up. Today I went out and bought day lillies to plant in their place. Thats something I can grow. I get all ready to dig out these 3 rose plants and look what I find....

each one of them is showing signs of life! A couple days ago there was nothing. Even as I started to cut down some of the stems, they were dry and brittle... dead, to my eyes... until I saw this.

Now, I know a rose plant should be a lot farther in growth in mid-May than this. My mini-roses, which I can grow, are going crazy with lots of leaves and showing signs of buds.

Are these things trying to tell me that they want to live?

The Official Teenager

Yesterday we had the birthday party for Demon #2. She's officially 13 now.

She's a video game addict. Her hopes for the future include working for Sega as a video game designer, so Sonic was the only thing that made sense to have on her cake.

My sister helped light all 13 candles, even though I was told, "candles are sooo 3rd grade, Mom".
The husband & I cutting & serving the cake.
Guess who's going on a shopping spree?
Just a random picture taken of me... which doesn't happen often.
and Saki just couldn't figure out what all the fuss was about.

Holy crap!!!!

I just realized that this Saturday marks the day that I officially become a mom of not only one, but TWO fricken teenagers! This ain't right. Seriously people. I am not old enough to have 2 teens. It can't happen.... but it's gonna, isn't it? Holy crap.

And the last 13 years went.... where?

Unbelievable. What I wouldn't give for those terrible twos again. And don't any of you toddler moms come chewing my ass telling me how insane I am for saying that - I lived through the terrible twos, twice. And the terrifying threes... and guess what? It's a piece of fricken cake compared to the years ahead. Now instead of my sweet babies crying and running towards me when they are hurt, they run for their room and slam the door and scream "LEAVE ME ALONE!".

Terrible twos. Ha!

You ain't seen a tantrum until you've seen a PMS crazed teen.

Shamless Plugs....

Just taking the time to share some links for ya...

With Father's Day coming, you gotta start thinking about what you are going to get that dear old dad of yours... don't forget about InsanityWear! You know, that obnoxious store that I run?

Yeah, that.

And remember that I do personalizations, too! So if you want one of those cutsey tees done with the kids' or grandkids' names on them... I can do that.

Just email me and we'll work something out.

Here's the links -

HookLineN'Sinker - fishing & hunting or our larger fishing tee's shop - The Fishing

InsanityWear T-shirts & Gifts from Zazzle (same designs... other great products!)

InsanityWear from CafePress - the one and only!!!

Why oh why, people? Watermelons, doorbells and stuffs.

This week we will answer some crazy questions brought to you by Berleen & Kimber via Skype, the color cranberry (is that a color?) and the number 1,999,784,926,901.

1. Why the heck did you come back this week to do this meme?
because Kimber reminded me that I had to do it the meme questions this week and I figured I better answer them, too.

2. Ever whiten your teeth?
Nope. Doesn't pay. I just stain them with coffee & cigs again

3. Do you drive the speed limit?
Usually not. Not always on purpose though. I used to be really bad... 90mph was a comfortable speed for me. Damn Nova.

4. Did the dog eat your homework?
Nope. The cat did.

5. How many bites does it take to get to the center of a watermelon?
ask my kids. They can inhale an entire watermelon in 2 seconds flat.

6. Did you eat paint chips as a child?
I think I did. It would explain many things.

7. If someone rang your doorbell/knocked on your door at 1am, would you answer it?
No, I'd have my husband do it.

8. "Amazingly Smooth" makes you think of what?
Dr Pepper - where do you think I got it from?

9. What was the last stupid thing someone said to you? (not counting this meme's questions)
My brother & sister in law laughed at me when I told them I had a lot of work to this week. They followed the laugh with, "you don't work". Yeah ok. Wanna tell me why I paid so fricken much into the IRS this year?

10. Would you eat a stick of butter for $100?
I dunno. It's tempting. $100 is $100 but a stick of butter seems like it would give a person a tummy ache and I hate those.

11. Find the nearest fabric tab, not counting your clothing you are wearing. What does it say the object is made of and where was it made?
100% cotton exclusive of decoration. Whatever that means. It was made in China

12. What is the strangest name you've ever heard someone name their child (or a person you met... however you want to answer it)?
It's not Wednesday Zella, believe it or not. My answer is Berleen. I'd rather live with the name Wednesday. At least the explanation is quicker and makes more sense.

13. Why is some toilet paper really soft and others are really hard?
Because Mom tried to save a buck. (this question was from Demon #2)
