Ten on Tuesday

1. Have you ever used Craigslist?

I have not, but I use a classifieds section on a local website to buy & sell stuff ALL THE TIME.

2. Can you sew?
Well, no I cannot. My husband bought me a very simple sewing machine for Christmas and my goal was to take a lesson or two so that I could do some basic sewing. I have yet to do that. I attempt to teach myself and, well....that didn't end so well. I couldn't even thread the bobbin whatever that even means.

3. Do you pour syrup on your pancakes or dip your pancakes in syrup?
I pour it on, but very little of it. My pancake motto: More Butter, Less Syrup

4. Rain storms: Love them or hate them?
Definitely depends on what I'm doing. Lying in bed in a cabin with a tin roof, watching a movie or reading a good book while drifting in & out of naps - Love them. Who am I kidding? Not you, I suppose. That NEVER happens. Trying to get my kids in & out of the car to run to Wal Mart to grab milk & diapers while it's pouring on us - Hate them. So I guess I hate them.

5. Do you like swimming?
Umm, not really I guess. I like laying out by a pool. I like dipping in and cooling off. But actually swimming....nah.

6. What kind of drink do you order at Sonic?
I'm not a big Sonic person. I don't eat there and I don't really go there just for a drink like a lot of people I know. I have tried a cherry limeade and it's alright...not sure what all the fuss is about. I definitely do not like real chunks of fruit coming up through my straw and surprising me when I'm expecting a liquid...blech!

7. Are you funny?
Hmm...I suppose that would be a question you to answer.

8. At what age will your kids get cell phones?
Interesting that this question would be asked. I just had a conversation with my 8 year old about it. She said a few of her friends had recently gotten cell phones and she was wondering when she would be able to get one. To which my response was, "Oh honey, I'm so sorry you don't have a cell phone yet and that you weren't the first of your friends to get one. Let's go to the AT&T store now and get you an iPhone!" RIIIIGHT! I told her it would be a very, very long time before she was able to get one. I'm thinking...14, 15 maybe?

9. What's your favorite vegetable?
Ha! Well isn't this a loaded question!? I am not a big vegetable eater. Some people label themselves a Vegetarian. I am a Carnivore. Love me some meat & potatoes. I will eat a select few veggies, and I guess I'd say my favorite is green beans.

10. Were you a Girl Scout?
I was a Brownie, but I don't have recollection of ever graduating to Girl Scout status, so I guess the answer is no.

I can teach you how to thread a bobbin. It really isn't that hard...the rest comes easy and you can teach yourself. :)
Just had the cell phone conversation too....seriously...I was in college when I got my first cell phone and now they get them in Elementary School. HOw did we ever survive?!?
