Another Meme

Work isn't to make money; you work to justify life. ~Marc Chagall

Swiped from Anno (thank heavens, cuz honestly... I'm too fried to handle thinking. Bear with me, this should be over next week):

You’re feeling: fried, exhausted, brain dead
To your left: the sliding glass door
On your mind: how to build 150+ webpages in 7 days, AND get the writing duties done that I need to do AND keep on top of current LASR work AND inspire my DD to want to do school when it's gorgeous out AND figure out a way to keep my dog from being a pill AND... well, you get the idea...
Last meal included: cheese... mmmm....
You sometimes find it hard to: sleep more than a few hours at night
The weather: clear, warm and breezy
Something you have a collection of: books, model horses and frogs
A smell that cheers you up: horses
A smell that can ruin your mood: too much car / motorcycle / boat / snowmobile exhaust

How long since you last shaved: yesterday morning
The current state of your hair: short, curly and unruly
The largest item on your desk/workspace (not computer): a book -- "Head First: HTML with CSS & XHTML"
Your skill with chopsticks: Pretty darn good -- it's how I prefer to eat Chinese food
Which section you head for first in a bookstore: romance
Something you’re craving: sleep and time
Your general thoughts on the presidential race: Sometimes I question people's general sanity and wonder why they vote the way they do... but that's not just about this race, it's about ALL political races.

How many times have you been hospitalized this year: none
Favorite place to go for a quiet moment: the garden -- any of them. Weeding is very zen for me.
You’ve always secretly thought you’d be a good: actress

Something that freaks you out a little: that I might be totally screwing up my daughter's psyche -- raising kids is overwhelming sometimes
Something you’ve eaten too much of lately: EVERYTHING -- my behind is not a pretty site right now...
You have never: Traveled to Europe, sadly.
You never want to: see my daughter hurt

========================



Your Band Name is:



The Pieces of Goldfish




That reminds me of when I used to work at a place called "The Pirahna Room" -- and every Saturday night we'd have 'The Feeding of the Fish'. We didn't have pirahna in our tanks... obviously, since they're illegal to own, but we had someother kind of carnivorous fish whose name escapes me.

I always went away during this time because poor little feeder goldfish would get thrown in a torn to pieces. How sad is it that people loved to watch?

**sigh**

Hi Marianne, I enjoyed your Meme. I hope you get revived and get all stuff done withot getting too much more fried. You are a wonderful Mother, Wife, Writer, and Website Queen. You have a lot on your plate and it amazes me you post every day in your blog on top of everything else. I think if you missed a day or two of posting it might help you get a little more time. I would understand as well as eveyone else too I believe.

My Band Name is The Bionic Bellies, how silly but funny.

I forgot to thank you for information on the Aphids. We also got little holes in our yard, my Brother said they were moles. I have no idea. I think we want to get try the ladybugs, we don't want to put poisons out in the yard because of our animals. Now I gotta figure out where to get them. thanks again Marianne.

Tori Lennox said...

My band name is The Screaming Yankees. LOL!

But if I use my real name, it's The Puffy Police. ROFL!!!

Brandy said...

I hope you get some rest soon. As for kids? Well, they are precious and scary and huggable and drive us crazy. Don't worry about your DD. You're a good Mom.

My band name? *sigh* The gagging housewives. (Ewwwwww!)

Have an enjoyable day!

Groovyoldlady's band name is "Pieces of Uncle".

Mulletman and I call ourselves (jokingly) "Yellow Paint". We chose the name because there is absolutely NO reason or basis for it. It's just random and therefore will send critiques scuttling for hidden meanings.

I got The Stinky Goldfish!
I love the smell of horses too but have not ridden for many years. Sigh!
I have been eating too many sweets lately. Why can't they be good for us?
