Week 331 You say … and I think … ? 1. Nursery :: Getting our child’s room together. We are going to buy a new crib and put a futon in his room also. This also makes me think about…
My friend Billy tagged me here at his website. Over the years I have written quite a few posts that have little known facts about me, but I will try to not be too repetitive. So here we go… 6…
1. Where is the furthest place that you have traveled and how far away from home is it? I have never traveled outside of the country, so the furthest places from home have been Las Vegas and New York City….
1. What are some recurring dreams you have had? A lot of my recurring dreams are sexual in nature and you might try to lock me up if I disclosed the details, so I will keep them to myself. Other…
1. Under what conditions can you have the perfect nap?
No music, no television, no other background noise, no children saying, Mommy, Mommy… and fighting, no telephone ringing and no one else talking to me (or trying to talk to me).
2. Under what conditions can you let most of your guard down?
Around people that I have known for a long while and I trust… then I can let my guard down.
3. Under what conditions can you do your best writing?
When I have some classical or jazz music playing in the background, something tasty to drink like a hot cup of green tea and no one disturbing me.
4. Under what conditions would you give away everything you own?
Everything? If I knew that I was going to die at a particular moment, then I would give away special items to loved ones.
5. Under what conditions would you kiss a stranger?
For $250,000. Enough to pay off the mortgage, other debt and buy a car.
1. What is your favorite fruit?
My favorite fruits are peaches, strawberries, plums and red seedless grapes.
2. What is the last book you read?
My attention span is low these days. I will start reading a book then put it down for something else. The last attempt was a Zane book that I borrowed from a co-worker.
3. Do you like any of your school photos?
Only a handful of them. I like the kindergarten, 4th or 5th, 9th and 12th grade photos. The others make me cringe.
4. Do you ever blow dry your armpits to get the deodorant to dry quicker?
My deodorant dries instantly… people still use the wet roll ons?
5. What was the last film you watched?
The Lake House and Premonition. It was like Sandra Bullock night at our house… I really enjoyed The Lake House… weird but the romantic storyline was very nice.
Say … and I think … ?
1. Mist :: I love waking up to a misty morning in the spring. Very relaxing and I enjoy the fresh air.
2. Eating :: I just finished eating a great breakfast that JT and I cooked. Turkey sausage, scrambled omelets, hash browns with cheese and fresh oranges.
3. Beacon :: Privacy concerns with Facebook Beacon. A lot of people were worked up.
4. Speaker :: We are going to need a new home theatre system for downstairs soon. The speakers are fine but the DVD drives on the receiver are messing up. They occasionally get stuck. I bought that as a gift for JT during our first Christmas together.
5. Episodes :: I am looking forward to new television episodes this month. Especially 24 on Fox.
6. Conference :: I have to admit that I will miss the opportunity to go the Legislative Conference and another training in Vegas, but I know I still made the right decisions in the long run.
7. Sneak attack :: I used to play Magic the Gathering during high school. Here is a Sneak Attack card:
8. Medic :: Although television shows like House and ER do not fully represent reality in medicine, I think the shows are dramatic and compelling. If I was a doctor, I may not have the patience to watch them, as I would probably be picking out the mistakes all of the time.
9.Web :: Web 3.0? I did not even know that this term existed until recently.
10. 2008 :: With a new job that starts tomorrow and my birthday at the end of the month, I sincerely believe that 2008 is starting off proper and going to be a positive year for me.
Say … and I think … ?
Health :: Overall, my health is pretty good these days. I have been drink lots of green and black tea as well as drinking Danactive and taking my vitamins. If I could get used to an exercise routine then that would be great. And speaking of health… the twins’ health is great. William has been doing very well since his surgery in September. He bumped his head at school the other day… scared the heck out of me. I called the doctor as soon as I found out about it. Dr. F. calmed my nerves a great deal. JT gave William some Tylenol for the pain and applied ice directly to the bump. The bump is nearly gone.
Tacky :: I think wearing boots during the summer is pretty tacky. The kind of boots that are meant to be worn in the snow.
Heels :: I wore high heel boots for the first time when I had an interview two weeks ago.
Yay! :: Regarding the interview mentioned above… I received a call this week. I got the job, yay!
Model :: I hope that am an excellent role-model for my children. When times are tough, it does not feel like I am. Raising children is the ultimate challenge in life.
Gather :: Friday evening, JT gathered all of the ornaments and Christmas decor. We decorated the tree before the children came home. They love the tree and all of the lights on the house.
Best gift ever :: Best gift ever? The birth of my twins. Best Christmas gift? The call I received this week for a new job.
Clients :: I only have a handful of clients for my small business, but perhaps 2008 will bring upon more opportunities and money.
Stomp :: William and Keisha occassionally stomp their feet on the ground when they do not get their way. Mom definitely does not approve.
Many people make a big deal about not being labeled. And yet, we all are, constantly.
1. Pick one label that you think does describe you (race, religion, hobby, etc.).
Researcher. I do a lot of research at my job and at home and I am damn good at what I do. And the most important label that describes me: Mother.
2. Pick one label that is often put on you, that you really think is inaccurate.
Stuck up. People at work think this of me until they get to know me.
3. Pick one label you wish could be put on you.
4. What is one kind of label that you think is universally wrong to use (race, gender, height)?
Racist labels and derogatory labels about the disabled.
5. Labels, used intelligently, can be a convenient rhetorical shorthand for identifying how a given person will fit into (or react to) a given situation. Labels, used incorrectly, can be an excuse for dismissing the differences still inherent in the people to whom the label is applied. Discuss.
