Monday Musings on Twenty Random Questions…

My lovely friend, Sandra, of What Sandra Thinks, posted some random questions and invited everyone to answer.  I’m doing that and inviting anyone else to participate and link to me and/or Sandra’s page!

  1. Do you have a nickname? Yes, my whole life I’ve been known as Dee to family and good friends. 
  2. Do you drink coffee?
    Yes… pretty much every day.  I never did until I got married and started making a pot for hubby.  Now I usually have one or two cups a day. 

 

  1. What’s your favorite ice cream flavor?  Mint chocolate chip, probably.  At Baskin Robbins it was Jamocha Almond Fudge.
  1. Describe a happy childhood memory.  Holidays were always the most fun.  Christmas especially.  Lots of kids, lots of food and the gorgeous decorations.

 

  1. What’s your favorite meal?  Something seafood.  Shrimp, crab, lobster.  Which is so easy to find when you live in Illinois…

 

  1. Name something you cannot live without.  Chocolate.  Or my family.  Well, probably chocolate!
  1. What color pants are you wearing?  Dark blue jeans, but only cause it’s cool here today.  Low 70s.  But I wear jeans a lot.  Or the middle aged woman uniform of capri pants and a tee-shirt in warm weather!
  1. Did you get good grades in school?
    Yes… I was one of the good kids.  Always did my homework, always studied.  Honors classes.  It was expected.
  1. Any phobias?
    I’m not crazy about height and I used to panic driving over bridges.  But I’ve gotten it more under control.
  1. Are you named after anyone?  I don’t think so, but I have a younger cousin who has my middle name…
  1. Last time you cried and why?  I’m not sure.  I’m not a huge crier.  It makes your eyes red and ruins your mascara!
  1. What color crayon would you be?  Definitely the color of the sea.  You know, anywhere from a blue to a green.  Calming.

 

  1. What do you hear right now?  The sounds of my fingers on the keyboard.  I type really fast, BTW.

 

  1. What’s the last movie you watched?  Wonder Woman at the theater.
  1. Do you believe in reincarnation?  I don’t know that I believe, but it is hopeful.  I believe there’s something after death.
  1. What do you think is your best physical feature?  My eyes.  Which are brown with green flecks.  But not hazel.
  1. What is your favorite curse word?  I don’t know that I have a favorite exactly, LOL.  There are many that are good at different times!
  1. Have you ever skinny-dipped before?  Probably not since I was two 🙂
  1. Do you talk to yourself?  Sometimes.  Or sometimes it just feels that way.  (If you have kids or a spouse, you know what I mean!)
  1. Do you have a favorite tv show?  There are a few I try not to miss.  NCIS, Scorpion, maybe.  But right now I’m into MLB and my Chicago Cubs.

  2. Oh… with my husband and kids… but especially my husband… I always feel like I’m talking to myself!! I swear… when he says something 5 minutes later that I already said… oh man. I kind of want to kick him. 🙂

    1. Mine usually nods and then says something totally off subject. So either he didn’t hear me or it was just too unimportant to comment on. Hmmph!

      1. I’m sure this exam is intended to simply provide some fun introspection 😍

  7. Mint chocolate chip. It brings back the best childhood memories, and it’s still my favorite ice cream.

    1. Me, too! And root beer floats in those old metallic glasses! Although now I make them with Diet Root Beer and no sugar added ice cream, lol. But still a treat!

  8. Perfect answer to no. 15. And speaking of the Cubs, WTF is going on? I saw they sent Schwarber down. I thought he’d have a fantastic year.

    1. He was hitting like 171 and I guess feeling the pressure to do better. They said he’ll be back for post-season for sure. Guess he had a bad day yesterday in his first minor league game, though, and struck out three times!

      1. It’s in his head now. Of course, that’s assuming they make the post season. The hangover has been real. 😏
