Do you consider yourself to be an optimist or a pessimist?

Absolutely, positively, an optimist. I’m a firm believer that if you believe it to happen, then by golly, it will happen. Why? Because you subconsciously make it happen. And those things that happen? Can be good things AND/OR bad things. The power of believing is amazing, so keep those thoughts positive, believe good things will happen and they will happen.

Yes folks, it really IS that simple. πŸ™‚


What is your favorite color of ink to write with?

Black. And the tip must not be too thin because then it makes that soft scratching noise and that makes my teeth vibrate and ache.

But then again, I avoid actually writing longhand at all costs. I would MUCH rather type out my thoughts than write them down. One, because I think better when I’m typing and two, I’m a bit ashamed of my handwriting – it’s overly loopy, sloppy and childlike and it embarrasses me. I wish I had handwriting like my mother’s; her longhand is so pretty and feminine looking.

My handwriting? Yep, you guessed it – it looks like an Amazon woman who scrawled something in a hurry because she needed to get back out into the wild to hunt for food.


How often do you get a manicure or pedicure? Do you do them yourself or go to a salon and pay for them?

What, are you kidding me?? Have you ever known an Amazon woman to have pretty nails? Look at my nails … go on, look at them. *holds up hands* I do not have any nails. They are short and unpainted and will always look like this. I have no desire, none, to have my nails sport any kind of wacky color or insane design. And the thought of them being long enough to clickity-clack against the keys of my keyboard set my teeth on edge (apparently, all of my annoyances manifest themselves through my teeth – go figure).

I think having nice nails is … nice. But not for me. I often wonder how women, who keep their nails painted and a certain length, actually get any work done. Or DO they get any work done? I’ve always preferred to work with my hands, whether that’s typing, vacuuming out my car, scrubbing toilets or … whatever. I have enough to think about as it is, I don’t need (nor have the patience for) the added burden of worrying about whether I’m going to break a nail or not. How … girly. *snort*

And pedicure? You get one foot (get it? Foot??) from my feet and I’m going to be very cranky with you. I can’t stand feet, let alone my own. There is no way in HADES I’m allowing anyone to get within sniffing distance of my feet, let alone actually TOUCH them. *shiver* Ew.

Have you ever won anything online? If so, what was it?

The only time I’ve ever won anything online was during Buy a Friend a Book Week (BAFAB). It was SO FUN to have the book, of my choice, delivered to me for free!! In fact, the next BAFAB week is coming up fast (the first week of July), so I’m hoping to enter more giveaways so that it can happen again.

And yes, I will be participating as well. Stay tuned! (Have you bookmarked me? It’s really the best way to keep track of all the stuff I post over here. Go on, add me to your RSS feed. You’ll find the links above my banner or in the sidebar – go on now, we’ll wait for you. πŸ™‚ )


In which room in your house do you keep your home computer?

BWHAHAHAHA! *wipes tears* Oh, if you could only see our house then you would understand my hilarity.

We have a computer in every single room of our house – well, almost. The boys each have one in their rooms, I have TWO on my desk, the husband has TWO in his office and there’s one in the kitchen, and I have my laptop in the dining room. In fact, a guy that my husband works with just recently gave him his old laptop because he said the technician who looked at it advised him to just buy a new one, that it would cost too much to fix.

*SNORT* Of course they’re going to tell you that! (He thinks either the hard drive needs to be reformatted, or that it just needs a new hard drive).

However, my husband has built enough computers and knows the ins and outs of computers so well, that I’m confident he’ll fix this guy’s old laptop and we’ll have yet another computer that we can put … somewhere. Maybe in the garage? πŸ˜€

Okay, so I’m kidding. Most likely, my husband will fix this guy’s old laptop and give it back to him because that’s just the way my husband rolls – he’s honest that way.

Which kind of bums me, because having a computer in the garage would have been sorta cool. πŸ˜‰


Memory Lane

Look at Cute Baby

Apparently, I was the cat’s meow when I was a baby. What happened? *grin*

Starting from the back: my dad, grandpa, I’m the munchkin sitting on my grandma’s knee, and my aunt, who looks like she’d like to swat me off grandma’s knee, lol.
