Question Me #1

Apparently I didn't have enough brain power to try to come up with 10 things I wish I could delete.

Or denial.

Either way, I'm a Listicle topic rebel today.

I think I'm ready to put the disappointment of my blogoversary Q&A post somehow being eaten by Blogger behind me, and re-answer the questions that were submitted in bright and shiny fresh, new posts!

I'd like to start with the light, silly questions since things in my life have been so not light and silly as of late.

Cool? Good.

1. Do you sleep in the nude?

Um. No. No I do not. And frankly, I cannot understand how anyone can. I ask you, oh anonymous questioner, what if there's an emergency in the middle of the night? How do you not freeze? You gotta put something on when you get out of bed, right? Why not just sleep in something??

2. What color is your bedspread?

It's a duvet over a down comforter and it is green with darker green leaves.

My bedroom and bathroom colors are greens and blues. Very refreshing and calming. At least I think that's the way it's supposed to work.

3. What is your worst habit?

I get confused between habits and vices. Because I could say, my addiction to Coffee Mate. But that's a vice, isn't it? When I was a kid I shewed my fingernails, hair, necklaces, pens and pencils. But I kicked that habit as a teenager. I have a fidgety habit of playing with my fingernails if I don't have anything in my hands. If I do have something in my hands, I play with it. If it's a remote control, I turn it over and over in my hands as I'm sitting there. I've even been known to toss a remote because I got a little overzealous with my turning. This is why knitting and crocheting are good for me.

4. What was your first job?

I worked at my local movie theater which is the best job ever for a teenager!

5. What kind of camera do you use?

Well, I have a Kodak EasyShare Z650. But I don't use it anymore. I don't like how big it is. I tend to just use my phone and edit the crap out of the pictures. I want an awesome tiny little digital camera. Any suggestions?

6. Do you like bacon or sausage better?

Sausage. However, now that I need to watch my cholesterol, turkey bacon or sausage will be my breakfast meats of choice from now on. Good thing is, I actually really like them.

7. What kind of band-aids are in your cabinet right now?

I think we might be out, lemme go check..... We have a few large Curads from a value bonus pack.

8. What do you collect?


9. What was your favorite Saturday morning cartoon?

Jem. And Looney Toons. And Fraggle Rock, except that wasn't a cartoon.

10. What fashion trend would you like to see come back in style?

I don't really think it matters if I would like something to come back in style. It seems they just will, whether I want it or not. Also, I'm a firm believer that if you wore it the first time around, you shouldn't the second time. This is why it's good to have a daughter, because I can buy her the stuff I'm not allowed to wear and live vicariously through her!

I am, however, still trying to force myself to finish knitting the legwarmers I promised  my friend The Sarcasm Goddess I would knit and wear in public and blog about. Maybe by next Fall....?


  1. Wow. Impressed with your knitting. And I enjoyed your rebellion list and learned some things about you. And I used to never sleep nude -- now I do? Maybe has something to do with age. See, you have that to look forward to.

  2. I loved Fraggle Rock!!! Oh my I could do list of ten bad habits alone :) So glad you are re doing these questions. Hope you are backing up...

  3. I loved this list! I agree about the sleeping question! lol

    Here's my list:


  4. How can sleeping nude be comfortable? There's way too much hanging in the way for that, at least for me!
    Sausage over bacon? Sorry, I'm a bacon girl!

  5. I have to agree that if you wore something the first time around that you should just say no by the time it makes it's way around again. All the 80s stuff coming back that I wore in high school makes me cringe!

    I love angels too. I have that same willow tree one holding the little dog. :)

  6. Great questions and great answers. A nice way to get to know you a little better. I love blues and have a lot of blue in throughout my house. I don't get how people sleep in the nude... never could do it.

    1. Blue is my favorite color. We have this long blue wall in our living room.

  7. Fraggle Rock--I LOVE that show. You know how many arguments I've had with people who don't believe that show as real!

    1. Why would people disbelieve you about a TV show? That's just silly!

  8. Angels. Of course you collect angels! I'm totally with you on the sleeping in the nude thing, totally don't get it. Maybe I'm a prude but...
    One thing though: COFFEE MATE? Seriously?

  9. Oh Jem and Fraggle Rock -- I think I can still sing the theme songs!

    And the nude sleep thing...yea, I confess I will. I hate getting all bunched up in clothing. when you try to turn over, but your shirt or nightgown pins you down. nuisance. Although, it is not so often these days since there are children who can come knocking at any given hour of the night. but hot summer nights? you betcha I'll be nudie.

    1. Yeah, I fight with my pajamas sometimes, but still.

  10. Love the list and learning more about you!

  11. Bahahaha! I have such a fear of sleeping in the nude! I swear there will be a fire and I'll have to run outside naked. So weird lol

  12. I'm very fidgety too. Drives my husband & my mom crazy. I cannot sit still unless I'm sleeping.

    1. Really? And you are also a knitter and crocheter. Hmm...

  13. Can't sleep with clothes on, haven't since I was a kid. I hate being confined in any way when I sleep, that's why the never made bed. LOL
    Gem, Looney Tunes and Fraggle Rock, we could watch so much TV together.
    Love the colours of your bedroom, looks calming and peaceful.
    My Mom collects angels too.
    Nice to get to know you a little better, can't wait for those leg warmer shots.

    1. Well, I don't know that I would still enjoy watching those shows... ;-)
