You know what is fun about having a newborn? The sleep deprivation makes all your days just blur by...or is is that is makes your days blurry? Gak...who knows!
Anyways it is time for Five Question Friday with Mama M. Yeah...I know. I can't believe it is Friday again already either! I have been eagerly anticipating 5QF because I am so tapped out on original, creative blog posts. (hence all the picture posts lately) I love this because she came up with this super original idea of little questions to get to know you better. She posts the questions that her readers come up with and alls I gots to do is plug in my little answers. How easy and fun is that? Super...then why don't you join along by hitting the links and coming out to play?
Questions for Friday, 1/8/10: (Thanks to Megan, Tara, Kate, and Thorney London)for their question suggestions!! Wanna be linked in a future 5QF? It's easy peasy lemon squeezy!! Just leave your question suggestions here!)
1. What's your "comfort food"?
My comfort foods used to be things like country fried steaks, mashed potatoes, etc. but then I became a mom and learned that I will never again get to eat these things hot (or even lukewarm) on my plate again. Unless you have the taste for the texture of wall paper paste, things like mashed potatoes must be served warm to qualify for "comfort food"
These days my comfort food involves a handful of Cheetos or Gummy Bears that I snatch and sneak off to "arrange the coats in the closet" (HIDE FROM KIDS) and munch my room temperature snack while consoling myself that there will indeed by a bedtime at some point.
2. Do you send Thank You's (handwritten or email)?
How funny you should ask since I have a ton of "Thank You" cards just waiting to be sent out (along with Birth Announcements, Christmas cards and a birthday card for my BIL who celebrated back in early 2009 - sorry about that, Dude) I do handwritten cards and make the kids sign it to the best of their ability (a scribble, juice stain or even a tear drop from being forced to practice penmanship) Now getting things to the mailbox that is about 150 feet from my door...that's another story entirely.
*Edited to add: I need, want, desire and even fantasize about getting followers in the 3 digits. That would be so cool and I only need 5 more. 5 MORE! If you like what you read and promise to come back, sign up to be a follower and I will totally write you a handwritten thank you card. TOADILY. Now sending it to you, that's a little more tricky and probably not going to happen.
3. If you had to be trapped in a TV show for a month, which show would you choose?
Dora the Explorer. True that my first reason may be so that I can pummel her little face when she starts up with that "Swiper No Swiping" thing, but the truth is I want to be in the TV show so my kids will actually listen to me and do what I ask. Ahhh....to have the kid control power of the Dora gods.
4. What is your favorite online recipe site?
5. If you had to choose: "Friends" or "Seinfeld"?
Seinfeld. Total genius from the Kenny Roger's neon sign, Soup Nazi, The Contest, Elaine's dancing...I can't get enough of the pure "Nothingness"
