Hey Ya

FYI, I want a dragon.

That being said, I am in a weird mood today.

You can all help by doing me a favor. 

Go read this blog:   Beneath the Surface 

The bloggers name is Dawn... what more could you possibly want?  She is also very funny and kind, and not enough people read her.  So there.  Go, and visit often.

About the hamster's cojones.  Apparently only the Chinese Dwarf Hamster is so GI-normously well endowed.  Our regular hamster, Lightning, that just passed, was a male too, and his were not this pronounced all the time. 

I am cranky-ish today.

Here is a meme that I nicked from the WWW.

If I were a doll, the accessories packaged with me would be:

A Keurig Coffee Maker with a lifetime supply of Green Mountain Coffee K-cups, a 'Carpe Diem' mug (like on my sidebar), and a laptop.

What type of food do you eat at your grandparents house?

My grandmother, while she was alive and living near me, was not a good cook, so she took me out.  A lot.  We shopped and ate out at malls.  It was great!  I miss her so. 

She was the only person in my life who always made me feel perfect, special, gorgeous, smart, and super loved, every moment I was in her company.

Do you have food rules?

Yes.  The foods on the plate should not comingle.  Ick.

Do you know how to cook?

Yes, and I am good at it.

I am annoyed with:

Walmart.  And it's Dan's fault.  No, actually, it isn't Dan's fault... but I will rant on this at another time in another post.

What child-related smell do you not like?

I am thinking that poop and vomit are the obvious choices here, unless someone out there actually does like these smells.  lol

What sea creature scares you?

Hmmm... Anything big enough to eat me and that would.

What was the last thing to make you cry?

I can't answer this on the grounds that it will embarrass me.

What serial killer do you find most disturbing?

I find them all very disturbing, however, Dahmer makes me want to vomit the most, I guess.

Who knows a secret or two about you?

My hubby and Kathy.  And, I know theirs, so it is all good. 

Have you ever burned yourself?

Oh heck yeah.  On the oven, the toaster, a frying pan, in the sun, on hot pizza cheese, coffee... the list goes on and on.

Who is/are your hero[s]?

My parents and my kids.

Do you believe in things that last?

Yes, I do, if this is alluding to marriage.  It is hard, but worth it.  It can be done.

Does anyone regularly tell you they love you?

Yes, my hubby and my kids, and sometimes my parents.  My cousin Karol tells me all the time too.   She rocks.  ;-)

What's the most confusing thing to you?

Why do we drive on the parkway and park on the driveway?

Have you ever wanted to be a teacher?

Yes, and I am.  I believe that teachers are actually 'facilatators'.  Kids naturally want to learn.  You just need to guide them well.

<FONTSIZE=4>What is one thing you've learned about life?

It is an amazing gift, full of great highs and lows.  It should never be taken for granted, but always treasured.

Okie dokie... signing off for now.

be well,

I like dragons, too.  Also, I like the 'brie' as opposed to the 'ketchup'.  :-P

I love dragons
I also don't like my food to touch
My accessories would be a big dog, a cat, a book.

Thank you so much. Yeah,I seem the remember the Chinese dwarfs are prone to hemoroids too!  My cousin had one named Pizza, seriously, and he was pretty well hung but you couldn't really tell because of his butt issues. -Dawn-

Hi   I really enjoyed reading your blog and will try to keep up on it, because
you are a dear sweet wonderful person.  I love your pics and illustrations.
I hope all will go well with you.  There is something about your writing
that I think were we closer in distance, there would be friendship.  
I wish you the very best of best.  Take care and know that you
give all of us strength and hope.   love Pam in Memphis
