Monday Morning Meme, Monday Stuff

You Ask, I Answer

Does anyone else have trouble coming up with something to blog about on Mondays?

Normally, you can’t shut me up, but here lately … it’s like Monday rolls around and I’m all like:

——————————BLANK FACE————————–

Exactly.

So. I thought I’d answer my own meme questions today as well as the “Getting to Know You Questions” from MannLand5.

1. What kind of athlete has the hottest body?

Probably a football player – because they have to bulk up so they have the weight to knock their opponent to their feet, which usually translates into muscle, usually. I’m thinking the running back, specifically. They have the muscle, but it’s lean, hard muscle and …

What was the question?

2. Are you a planner or a procrastinator?

I’ll get back to you on this one.

HA!

Seriously. I’m a procrastinator, hands down. But I don’t like to call it procrastinating, per se, but rather, I like to take a duty, a task, an idea and sort of chew on it for a while, digest it if you will.

You can’t rush genius.

HA!

3. Diet or regular (soda)?

None. I’m not a soda drinker. I used to LIVE on soda way back when, I drank it in lieu of water and well, kidney stones put an abrupt and painful stop to that nonsense.

Now? I rarely drink it. And when I do, I almost always regret it because GAH, that crap is SWEET.

4. What’s your one “must have” for Fall?

Blazers. I LOVE blazers. They look smart and they cover the poochy belly. They look good with slacks or jeans so they’re versatile. In fact, I’m thinking about asking Santa for a leather blazer for Christmas.

*ahem* Santa, are you listening??

Though I don’t know, boots are a close second.

5. What’s your favorite fast food restaurant?

Wendy’s, of course. 😀

(I used to work there way back when and you would think that would make me not want to eat there anymore, but ah contrare, Wendy’s food ROCKS my socks).

P.S. I was not paid to say that but if Wendy’s happens to find this? I am not opposed to accepting coupons – just sayin’.

6. What do you think is the sexiest profession for a guy?

Police Officer.

No.

Firemen.

I’m not picky. 😉

Seriously. *drool*

Of course, accountants are DEFINITELY sexy.

(My husband is an accountant, I’m sort of required to give that answer. *wink*)

7. Did you wear braces?

Nope. And it’s a miracle, really. Growing up, we couldn’t afford to go to the dentist, but luckily, I didn’t have to. Any cavities I got, came out in with a tooth. And my teeth are pretty straight-ish.

Now my boys? Both have worn, and are wearing, braces. Dude had them for about four years (that poor kid – too many teeth for his mouth) and Jazz is wearing them now (he has the room, but they’re just sort of sticking out, like buck teeth, only not that bad).

Braces are expensive, but worth the investment. My father-in-law had terrible teeth growing up and was extremely self-conscious of them his whole life. Finally, a few years ago, he had them all pulled and now wears false teeth. I wouldn’t recommend going that route, but if you can afford to get your kids’ teeth fixed, I would.

Life is hard enough without having to worry about your smile. You know?

8. Would you rather have a guy that’s super sexy or kind?

How about kind of sexy?

HA!

Okay fine, kind. Sexy is good? But sexy is not always kind, you know? And when you have to live with a person, kindness is a HUGE factor (the sexy can sort of wear off after a while).


1. If you could be any book character, who would it be?

Belle. From the Twilight series.

And not for the reasons you might think. Every time I read any of the books from the Twilight series, I always think, “doesn’t Belle get tired of having this blood-sucker breathing down her neck all the time?”

I’d be all, “Dude. I love you. But seriously, give me space. And though I’m okay with dying and doing the whole immortal thing with you someday, right now? I want to live my life so back off, Jack.”

I always get impatient with characters that put so much of their energies into being somebody’s mate. I don’t care for characters who are willing to lose a portion of their identity – I just don’t identify with that, at all.

There’s passion, which is sexy.

And then there’s obsession, which is not.

2. What’s the funniest thing you’ve ever heard a child say?

Oh geez. I can’t think of anything off the top of my head – probably because I tend to think children are pretty much cute and hilarious all the time, so I took the liberty of Googling it and this little story made me laugh out loud:

Stopping to pick up my daughter at kindergarten…

…, I found out that the topic of “Show and Tell” that day had been parents’ occupations.

The teacher pulled me aside. Whispering, she advised, “You might want to explain a little bit more to your daughter what you do for a living.”

I work as a training consultant and often conduct my seminars in motel conference rooms.

When I asked why, the teacher explained, “Your daughter told the class she wasn’t sure what you did, but said you got dressed real pretty and went to work at motels.”

HAHA! If your kids haven’t gone to school yet, then you may not be able to relate to this yet, but speaking as a veteran mom of school-aged kids, this is a stigma you don’t exactly want to carry with you the 13 years your kids are in school. Because most likely, your kids will be around the same teachers, the same kids and the same parents for those 13 years and you don’t exactly want to have to fight a racy reputation from the very beginning – save that for later years. *wink*

3. Thunderstorm arrives, power outage! How do you occupy your time?

If there’s enough light, read. If there’s not enough light, listen to my iTouch.

And if there aren’t any kids in the house, well …..

Also, stress about the food in the fridge.

4. Do you usually write your blog post first and then the title? Or do you write the title first, and then the blog?

I usually write my blog post first, and then title it. Once in a while, I’ll come up with a title and then write a blog post around that, but most of the time, I write the post, then pick out a juicy title from that.

I probably don’t give my titles as much thought as some people (or as much as I should), but then again, I don’t care much if search engines find me or not.

5. Bonus: Write a caption, poem or short story inspired by this picture:

You smell good. I like you. Can I sit on your lap? Can I lick your face? Do you have any treats? I’m a good doggie. Where’s my tail? You smell good.
