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 :)
