Meet Me on Monday


Welcome to Meet Me on Monday, sponsored by Java.

She writes, “Blogging is a funny thing...we tell our most intimate thoughts for all to read and yet most of the time I find myself sitting and wondering, ‘who is this person!?’ I know them...but yet I don't know them! I want to know who the person is behind all those words so I thought of a great way for all of us to "meet" each other!”

Every Sunday five get to know you questions will be posted that you can copy and paste into your own Monday post and we can all learn a little more about each and every one of us!!

Questions:

1. Have you ever been on a cruise?

No, I haven’t and I’m not sure if I would like it. The last couple of friends of mine that have gone on cruises complained about dizziness for so long afterward, I was ready to hit them on the head to see if that helped. I’d like to just lie on the beach in Mexico, thank you.

2. What is your favorite way to eat eggs?

Depends on my mood. I love eggs! I love to make omelets for dinner. Ask my husband, I make a mean omelet. I love fried eggs, and I love fried egg sandwiches. Scrambled is just fine as well, and sometimes a little cheese sprinkled in does the trick. Hard boiled eggs are a good snack. Well, I guess I just haven’t ever met an egg that I didn’t like.

3. What is your favorite reading material?

A book I get lost in. I have a varied taste in books. The most recent book I got lost in was The Heights by Peter Hedges. Currently I am reading Augusten Burroughs latest book of short stories. I don’t know how many stories that man has in him, but keep them coming.

4. Name all the pets that you have ever had?

Childhood – Honey (cocker spaniel)

Kepper (I don’t know what that dog was)

Janette (cat)

Socks (A gerbil, which I accidentally killed while cleaning out his cage. I left him in the garage while I cleaned the cage. We lived in Phoenix. The garage was raging hot. Didn’t take very long for the poor guy to meet his demise.)

Carroll (My most beloved childhood pet. My male cat named Carroll. He was Janette’s son.)

Ubu (Our golden retriever)

Adulthood – Gweniviere (A stray cat I took in during college and kept in my dorm.)

Currently living – Dobby (Our empty-headed, silly cat)

Matt (Also known as Matt Baby. Our fish.)

5. Were you ever a girl/boy scout?

I was a girl scout, and I discovered that it just wasn’t all it was cracked up to be. The girls were mostly mean, the den mother’s or whatever they call them were mean, there were too many rules, the outfits were ugly, and it was hard work walking the streets trying to sell cookies. I wasn’t a girl scout for very long.

The girl scout bit cracked me up. Sounds like some of the grown up girl-clubs I know.

I was a brownie (English equivalent I think) and after a few weeks told my mother I never wanted to go again, right after enrollment and purchase of the uniform of course :-) I hated it, for the exact same reasons as you!

Shell said...

I love eggs, too. I'm terrible at getting my act together to make breakfast- we usually have cereal or waffles. But, I love having breakfast for dinner!

chele said...

Augusten Burroughs has a wonderfully crazy mind. I'll have to check out the short stories.

Fellow girl scout in the hizouse! And for the record, I hate cruises. Food sucks and you're totally trapped.

Lots of yummy love,

Yippee to a fellow girl scout drop-out. I thought there was something wrong with me. LOL Have a great week. Meet Me On Monday

Ok is it possible you were in my Girl Scout troop? I swear it's just Mean Girls Training Camp. To be honest, I only made it through Campfire Girls and I loved the part where we made rhino-shaped bread. And that was about it. The girls were horrible.

Not only was I a Girl Scout, but my Mom was the Cookie Mom! Our living room was always full of the most delectable cookies every March. Which explains, I guess, my continuing love affair with Thin Mints, correctamundo?

You are freaking me out about this cruise dizziness thing. If I go, I'm gonna take motion sickness something!

Amanda said...

Loves it! :)

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

I've had good cruise experiences and no dizziness that your friends spoke of. Weird.

I was a girl scout too and wasn't a fan. But it's because the girls were SO goody goody. Almost too good to be true.

TV's Take said...

Loved your answers. I wasn't a girl scout either, definitely wasn't my thing. Hope your having a great week

Amy Sullivan said...

Kristy,
It was fun getting to know you a little better!

I loved the idea of Brownies: the cute outfit, the badges (which btw, I cheated to earn) the cookies, everything. Then I became a girl scout and dum, dum, dum, dum...meaness, I agree!

kathryn said...

Ha! Love learning more about you, sweets.

I, too, was a girl scout...and came away with the same reaction. Although, I'm the one who always carries too much stuff, which my sisters swear is a direct end result.

I'll take the chair on that beach in Mexico right next to you!
