Next, I decided to participate in
1. What is your favorite restaurant? Applebees!
Not necessarily because it is the best place ever, but because for years, and through all of my many moves across this wonderful country, my adorable friends have meet me there. In the still of the night-while our babies slept, we laughed and cried there, sharing and gut spilling, telling the most appalling secrets. Above is my favorite, the appetizer sampler. If you come with me some time I will trick you into splitting this massive appetizer with me. It offers way too much food, but I must get it due to my inability to make a single decision! Only honey BBQ wings please!
2. What kind of music do you like?
I also love some strange independent artists....and with a tweenie in the house am becoming all the more excited about teenie-bopper pop, but we won't get into that now.
3. What do you watch on TV?
Tricky, since we don't get reception(with the whole DTV phenomenon) and I refuse to pay for cable. We have a beloved ROKU box and Netflix. I did just recently discover fancast, where you can watch just about any show out there. A few favorites...
4. Do you enjoy reading and if so what kind of books do you read?
I love to read, but rarely stop what I am doing long enough to finish a book. That is why my all time favorite thing is AUDIO BOOKS!!! I LOVE them! That is my idea of a perfect gift, for any occasion. I love the following authors...
5. What is your favorite color?
I already told you this, but...
I love yellow. It is such a happy color. The sun is yellow, big bird is yellow-but that didn't turn out so well for me...never mind, lemonade is yellow, and then there are all those lovely flowers in the field-sunflowers, daisies,
buttercups I mean daffodils. I love the color.
I do have a friend that reminds me every time I mention the color that they actually have a shade they paint in prisons called "insane yellow." She swears it has been proven to make you insane. Maybe that is my problem.
Happy Monday...wait... it's Tuesday!
