If you don't have a blog, feel free to jump in on the comments along the way! I'd love to hear your answers too!
Okay, let's get down to business!!
Questions for Friday, 2/5/10: (Thanks to Pam, Christine, Liz, Tara, and Renee for their question suggestions! Wanna be linked in a future 5QF? Just c'mon over here, to Mama M's community, and offer up your best questions!)
1. What are you most afraid of?
Outliving one of The Scribblers. My own death I am totally cool with because it's not like I am going to have any long term memory of it, but living with out of these sticky handed bodily fluid sharing wild Indians is more than I can bear.
2. Do you use a flat iron or curling iron?
I own every major hair appliance, but do not use them regularly enough to keep the dust off of them. Have you ever smelled dust heating on a flat iron...not good, my friends.
Would the all powerful, all containing Scrunchie be considered a major hair appliance? Because that is something that I use every day. Not only can it contain my gray...uhh...beautiful hair, but it can be used as a passive weapon against a Scribbler who is not listening to me across the room. Just whip it out of the pony tail, prepare it to launch from the pointer finger and let that sucker fly at the side of the offending Scribblers head. *hee hee* gets them every time.
3. Hands-free or phone to the ear?
I had a hands free set and I loved it...until one of The Scribblers grabbed a hold of the cord sticking inside my ear and ripped it out. I was wearing hoop earrings that day and the result wasn't pretty. Somehow that little ear bud caught my earring, some hair and my shirt collar on the way out.
Now I think the broken ear piece set is being used as a makeshift clothes line for Barbie's house.
These days I just put the caller on speaker and either tuck it under my bra strap (perfect distance away and holds it snug, although I always look like I am talking to my shoulder) or balance it on top of Baby Bitsy's head since she is always in my arms. Once again...it's the perfect distance away from my ears and mouth and her little patch of velcro hair holds it snugly in place.
4. Do you have a matching bedroom set?
I do. It's a beautiful cherry set with all the matching pieces. We are looking into passing it down to Buzz when we move into our new home because it is a Queen bed and for some reason we can't sleep without having living bookends in the bed with us. We really need to expand our sleeping conditions to a King. I am sure our bookends won't last forever (well, they might last a while considering I pop out a new bookend every 22-24 months) but for right now I am sick of sleeping with someone's foot crammed against my spinal cord and then someone else's elbow in my ear.
5. Do you believe in the paranormal?
I don't believe in Casper and his three cousins (hmm...what were their names?) plotting spooky, yet hilarious antics; but I do believe in the existence of angels and demons here on earth. I believe in spiritual warfare that each person must go through as they live their life. I believe that when a new baby is born and they are staring into space slightly smiling, that they are some fresh from heaven's arms that they can still see the angels watching over them. I believe when you cross paths or see a truly evil person and you get that chill over you, that you are "seeing" the demons around them.
