Random Thoughts - May 19, 2010

1. What is one really fast, know-by-heart "go-to" meal to fix in a pinch?
Tacos or Burritos. Always easy, always fast.
2. What is one item you won't leave home without. (Purse and license do not count.)
My Sunglasses. Since cataract surgery it seems my eyes are even more sensitive to the brightness of the sun.
3. Where is one place you never tire of visiting?
I haven't been there is a very long time, but it would be the Minneapolis Art Institute and Walker Art Center.
4. Share one factoid of your family's history.
My grandparents both came from Germany, but didn't know each other when they came here.
5. Complete this sentence: "Once upon a time I ...."
Once upon a time I wanted to be a Special Ed teacher.
6. If you could win a one year's supply of anything, what would it be?
HMMM. Maybe chocolate? Or a year's worth of waxing at the salon. Or haircuts. Or maid service.
7. "One quirky thing you may not know about me is ...."
One quirky thing you may not know about me is I gave up knitting because I hate to purl. I mean I hate to purl. I started to crochet instead.
8. You have one dollar in your pocket. What will you buy?
One pack of gum and a stamp. A pack of gum will last longer than a chocolate bar and you can always use a stamp.

12. What is one thing you're looking forward to soon?
Taking the cover off the air conditioner tomorrow and turning it on. It got up to 83 in the house today.


  1. ohhh - maid service... I like that idea!

  2. I didn't think about never leaving home without sunglasses, but I'm the same way. I am in trouble without them. My eyes are extremely sensitive--no cataracts yet, but I have flashes and floaters. LOL Since stopping effexor I have to wear them indoors alot, too--even while watching tv.

  3. Great answers!!
    By the way, you asked me about the Daybook--Peggy posts the Daybooks on Tuesday's now, instead of Mondays. You can still do them on Mondays if you want, but in order to link up to her site, it is on Tuesdays.
    Hope you're having a great week!
