So... it's fourth and long, with the potential of being a 46 yard field goal for the Patriots. They opt to try for the first down (note to Bill Bellicheck: Are you out of your ever-loving mind??) and miss. I turn to my DH and say, "Bet the Pats lose by a field goal."
Bet Mr. Bill is a bit unhappy with his decision making abilities (not to mention the offensive line that couldn't keep the Giants defense off of Tom Brady -- who did his best in really bad circumstances).
Okay. All done. It's not like I'm a Patriots fan (despite being stuck deep in Pats territory). I <3 the 49ers (I know, I know, you can stop snickering now). Still, it would have been neat to see the Pats have a perfect season.
1. As a child, with whom did you have more fun - mom or dad? Why?
Fun? I'd probably have to say my dad. My mom and dad were divorced when I was very young, and mom had custody, so she and I did more "day-to-day" stuff (not that mom wasn't fun, but she also had to, yanno, discipline me and what-not). Dad, OTOH, since he only had me on the occasional weekend or school holiday always made sure we had cool stuff scheduled. AND, on the way to his place we always stopped at the grocery store and stocked up on junk food that Mom didn't allow: Lucky Charms (or Captain Crunch or Cocoa Pebbles... mmmm), soda pop, etc.
Plus, he had a pool at his apartment and I was a serious waterbaby. And he'd pay me -- a dime a point for anything over 100 -- when we bowled.
I'd forgotten a lot of that. It was a good trip down memory lane.
2. When was the last time you purchased flowers for yourself? When was the last time you purchased flowers for someone else? What was the occasion?
I'm a very practical person and always think flowers, that are just going to die anyway, are rather a waste of hard-earned money. I'd rather have a plant. Or new clothes. Or books. Or, yanno, kitchen utensils.
The last time I bought flowers for myself was w-a-a-a-a-y back when I worked in California (so, hmmm... doing the math... about 15 years ago). There was a guy who sat on the street corner and sold bouquets for five dollars. I'd pick one up weekly for my desk.
The last time I bought flowers for someone? That would have to be about eight years ago, and I bought them for my friend, Cathy, out in California for her birthday. She's a quiet person, and often overlooked and I wanted her day to be special, so I had flowers sent to her AT WORK. Really, I should do that every year, but... yanno... flowers = waste of money. I just can't get past that.
3. Where is the perfect reading spot for you? Why?
Good grief. Anywhere. I'm not one of those people who wants a little reading nook with a table for my tea. I read anywhere and everywhere. I read when I'm cooking and often times when I eat. I read when I watch TV. I read in bed, on the potty, in the tub, and if the book was waterproof, I'd probably read in the shower. The perfect reading spot is wherever I am together with a good book.
4. (Other than “say you’re sorry”) Complete this line: Love is never having to … Please explain your answer.
Love is never having to ... worry about what your hair looks like in the morning.
I think that's self-explanatory.
So, if I stop writing the blog now, I'll have 45 minutes to work on my mystery! Woot!
