Monday Morning Meme and More

Weekends don't count unless you spend them doing something completely pointless. ~Bill Watterson

I wasn't entirely certain I'd do this today because I wanted to share a little goofiness from the weekend, but the first question lends itself to that, so I figure it was meant to be! LOL...



1. What did you do over the weekend? (Saturday and Sunday - be specific, please. Remember, this is a journal about your life, so, tell us about your life. *smile*)

If you give a man a chainsaw...he's going to want to use it. And after he uses it on the smaller trees, he's going to raise his sights a little.


Regardless of whether it's leaning toward his neighbors house or not. That's easy to fix. Simply attach a cable to the tree and hook it to your truck.


Have BIL get inside while DH cuts and I video (sorry, it's too big to upload here):


And then congratulate yourself when it doesn't hit either house!


That was actually one of FOUR quite large oak trees he took down over the weekend. DD and I spent the weekend lugging brush and stacking wood. We discovered yet another yellow jackets nest in a rotten tree DH took down. BIL was the only one stung, though, and that was simply a miracle considering the sheer number of bees flying about.

So, we have our firewood for winter 2009-2010. We are nothing if not forward thinking. *G*

2. Which are scarier to you: ghosts or aliens? Why? Do you believe in either/both? Why or why not?

Aliens by far... I saw "V" and the Alien movies. Enough said.

3. I can’t live without my _______________. Now, please tell us why you can’t live without it.

I can't live without my Internet connection.

Okay, I probably COULD survive without it... but only if the entire world was off the grid after some massive terrorist attack that took out all power to the earth. Otherwise, I'd drive myself loony wondering what was going on in the WWW.

4. What is the cheesiest movie you ever saw, and secretly enjoyed? Why did you enjoy it so much?

"Xanadu" -- my fave movie of ALL TIME from when I was younger. That was back when you could stay in the theater as long as you wanted if you paid once AND when they had double features. So, I'd go in the morning (first showing) and stay until dinner time... for days on end. I saw "Xanadu" and "Somewhere In Time" more times than I could count.

And just to torment you, here is the preview/trailer:

Just in case you wondered... I still love my coffee pot.

The Keys to Your Heart



You are attracted to those who are unbridled, untrammeled, and free.



In love, you feel the most alive when things are straight-forward, and you're told that you're loved.



You'd like to your lover to think you are stylish and alluring.



You would be forced to break up with someone who was insecure and in constant need of reassurance.



Your ideal relationship is open. Both of you can talk about everything... no secrets.



Your risk of cheating is zero. You care about society and morality. You would never break a commitment.



You think of marriage as something that will confine you. You are afraid of marriage.



In this moment, you think of love as something you thirst for. You'll do anything for love, but you won't fall for it easily.

I made the mistake of not watching Xanadu until just recently. It was cheesy. Pure unadulterated cheese. BTW it was one of my husband's favorites from way back when too. For me, I just didnt' get it. Now, that being said, I loved the original Battlestar Galactica. Now that's cheese at it's best too.

Glad no one got seriously hurt taking those trees down.

Enjoy your coffee pot! And what a job with those trees!

I'm sorry..the whole xanadu thing makes me gag. But I might feel differently if I had been brainwashed by it as an impressionable youth.

I love MY coffee pot too.

What's with the trees? They certainly looked healthy from a distance...

If you give a man a chainsaw...

Why haven't you hidden that man's chainsaw? Or dismantled it? Or sent him out on the boat? :)

Sooo glad the tree didn't hit a house. That would have been bad.

Oh, I loved "V"!!! Wasn't it creepy and cool?

The cheesiest movie I can think of off the top of my head is My Chauffeur. Love that movie but it's sooo silly!

I could not live without technology.

The Keys to Your Heart
You are attracted to good manners and elegance.

In love, you feel the most alive when things are straight-forward, and you're told that you're loved.

You'd like to your lover to think you are stylish and alluring.

You would be forced to break up with someone who was arrogant, acting like the dictator of your life.

Your ideal relationship is open. Both of you can talk about everything... no secrets.

Your risk of cheating is zero. You care about society and morality. You would never break a commitment.

You think of marriage something you've always wanted... though you haven't really thought about it.

In this moment, you think of love as something you can get or discard anytime. You're feeling self centered.

He has a chainsaw? SCARY! Glad things worked out with the trees and directionality.

I've seen Xanadu. When I was little. I liked it then, not sure about now, though. *g*

I hope you have a fantastic day!
