It's that time again where I get to embarrass myself with Mama M's . . .

FIVE QUESTION FRIDAY (said with my game show announcer voice).

Join in. Just copy and paste the questions to your blog, or you can answer them by posting a comment at the end of my entry. Link up if you want to learn more about all these wonderful bloggers!!

1. What is your worst memory of your siblings?

2. What was YOUR naughtiest childhood memory? (Must be something YOU did, no pawning it off on someone else!)

3. Where do you like to go to relax?

4. What was the last thing you won?

5. If you could be on a game show, which would you choose?

Here goes:

1. What is your worst memory of your siblings?

I'm the oldest of 3 . . . 2 younger brothers . . . that, alone, should get your imagination going! My brother just 15 months younger than myself has created a lifetime of . . . ahem . . . "choice" memories. Here's one: have you ever been poked on the back of your knee, the most tender spot EVER, with an electric cattle prod??? No?? I hope you never do.

2. What was your naughtiest childhood memory?

Again, this involves Brother #1 (and I'm really picking one of my tamer incidents). When I was in Kindergarten, my parents both worked and we went to a sitter. My memory of this sitter is sketchy . . . but then . . . so was she! She used to let us do whatever we wanted and go wherever we wanted, while she watched TV and took naps. Can you imagine letting a 5 and a 4 year old have complete control over their day?? She always had matches lying around the house, so I talked Brother #1 into grabbing a book of matches, running in the bathroom, locking the door, and trying to light whatever we could get our hands on. Someone must have been watching over us, as the only thing that we really lit on fire was my thumb nail!

3. Where do you like to go to relax?

Most of the time it's this room:

I can shut the door and have some peace and quiet. Even if I'm not doing any "business." :)

4. What was the last thing you won?

My family knows . . . I'm a junky for radio contests. Most times when I call in I'm the correct caller. I've won round trip airfare to anywhere in the U.S., diamond rings, food, concert tickets, LPs (yes, I'm that old!), and money. The most recent was a wonderful book by Carol Tuttle "It's Just My Nature." If you haven't read it . . . get it. It's changed my way of thinking about my body image and personality. Thanks, Carol!

5. If you could be on a game show, which would you choose?

"I'd like to buy a vowel, please."

I'm sure it's much harder in person, but when I've watched this (which really hasn't been in a LOOOONG time . . . really!) I can guess the word or phrase with only 1 letter on the board; sometimes I can guess it without any letters. I LOVE puzzles and word games! As I'm driving everywhere I look at license plates and make up words from the letters on the plate. Of course, the letters in the word have to be in the same order as they are on the plate. Weird, I know.

There you have it! Join in and leave a comment if you want. I love those :)

Life and Five Question Friday

WoW! Exactly a month since my last post and I'm going to revert to my usual "Five Question Friday" staple. Life has just been one cRaZY thing after another since the boys and I were in the play. Here are just a few highlights:

I turned 51. Woo Hoo!!I may be losing yet another job (but positive thinking is leading me to new possibilities!)My brother was stabbed and almost didn't live to tell the tale (a couple of flat lines in the OR and a VERY long scar from his sternum down past his bellybutton are evidence)
My youngest brother and his family were here for a visit (I haven't seen them since 2007)And . . . I'm set for ONE more surgery on my shoulder. And this will be the last one . . . absolutely . . . positively!!PHEW! I think that's enough for the summer.

Now . . . on to the questions for the day. If you want to play along, copy and paste the questions to your blog (or just answer them in my comments area), link back to the fabulous Mama M and you…

The things we do . . .

Woo Hoo! Mama M's Five Question Friday has one of my submitted questions. Thank you, Mama!

That's a HUGE thank you to Mama M since it's been a tough couple of weeks for her family after a tragedy hit them. If you're a praying sort of person, they could benefit from them. I know they have mine.

If you'd like to join in, I'd love to read your answers. Just comment or hook on up with the linky.

And here we go . . .

1. Would you rather be on ABC's Extreme Home MakeOver or TLC's What not to Wear?

Easy choice here. I already know how to dress and look F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S!! Thanks to Carol Tuttle and her "Dressing Your Truth" and "Energy Profiling" systems. Check it out.

The only problem with Extreme Home Makeover is this . . .

His screaming drives me NUTS!!

I liked him SO much better when he was on Trading Spaces with cute little Paige Page.

He wasn't so . . . IN YOUR FACE obnoxious!

2. Do you have any tattoos?

Well . . . yes and no. I would …

Green Peppers and Volkswagens

I'm with just about everyone else I know . . . I'm SO glad it's the weekend! With one exception: we woke up to 5 inches of snow . . . AGAIN!!! I want to hunt down Punxsutawney Phil and strangle the little varmint. I think he lied!!

Here's this week's Five Question Friday, and once again Mama M has used one of my questions (did I really submit this many?? haha). Link on up and join in. I love going through the entries and reading what others answer. At times it let's me know I'm not so CrAZy!

1. Can you drive a stick shift?

I certainly can. The very first car I drove when I was 13, out on the country roads (as if that makes it ok!), was a 1963 Volkswagen Beetle. Then when I finally got my permit, we had an old brown pickup with "3 on the tree" and I learned to drive stick. I didn't realize there was any other option. Now days, it seems like it's a rare thing if someone knows how to drive a stick. I LOVE driving a stick . . . you c…
