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 NEVER get a tattoo . . . NEVER . . . EVER . . .

Okay . . . that was . . until 6 months ago. It started awhile back. I became SO frustrated with my eyeliner always coming off on my upper lids (I have fairly hooded eyelids) and was complaining to my hair stylist. "Oh!" she said. "I do permanent eyeliner. You'd love it! It really doesn't hurt much at all."

So after several months of asking . . . talking about it . . . waffling . . . I agreed to do it. Wow . . . was I in for a surprise.

It. Hurt. Like. HELL! And my eyes were swollen for days. And I couldn't wear my contacts. And I couldn't wear makeup. And I bruised. Shall I go on? In hindsight, I probably wouldn't do it again. But I have to say . . . I do love them! And yes . . . they are JUST like a tattoo.

3. Do you tell your kids about things you did growing up?

If it's about growing up riding cows, flinging manure, and making forts out of bales of hay . . . YES! Anything else . . . they'll have to wait until their 40s to hear those stories (or maybe their 50s). Haha.

4. If the traffic signal turns yellow, do you stop or speed up?

I always make a quick scan of the cars stopped at the cross roads and if I don't see a cop . . . I speed up. Red means go, green means stop, and yellow means speed up. Right?

5. What's your preference: chocolate or chips?

Another easy answer . . . I don't like chocolate. I don't like ice cream. I've been called "un-American" by co-workers because of this. Oh well . . . if I can have a bag of Salt and Vinegar chips I'm happy.

You're turn.

I seriously considered the perm eyeliner. But I know the one tat I have on my back hurt like a mother so I could just imagine it on my lids. Not for me. at all!
Yeah - after getting my own tattoo, there is no way they could convince me that permanent make up doesn't hurt. I read someone's post that she had gotten permanent lip liner!!! Can Not imagine how painful that would be!!!

OK, salt and vinegar chips rock!! And you are killing me with the eyeliner story--I think my eye started twitching just reading it. I can't even handle the puff test at the eye Dr.!

Thank you for the prayers...we definitely need them! I, too, LOVE salt and vinegar chips...but, have you tried S&V almonds?! Wow. Addicting.

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…

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…
