i'm it...part II

so, the second tag that i've received lately is from isabel princes over at mommy is in the bathroom. this is a "meme" tag (which i think is called that because it is all about me, get it?).

Here are the rules:
1. Respond and rework; answer the questions on your blog, replace one question that you dislike with a question of your invention, add one more question of your own.
2. Tag other people.Sounds simple enough, right?

What is your current obsession? reading blogs and sad but true. i'm guessing that those will soon be replaced with school work. otherwise, i'm in trouble.
What are you wearing today? right now a pair of sweatpants and a green and gray striped night gown (had to throw the sweats on when i got the boys ready for camp. don't think my brother in law needs to see me in a night gown first thing in the morning). after i shower, most likely a gray t-shirt dress with flip flops.
What’s for dinner? not sure yet. i am going food shopping after i feed my two addictions for the day.
What would you eat for your last meal? tough one...i just finished the rest of this post and still haven't come up with an answer for this. maybe, i would just be happy with something someone else cooked and served to me.
What are you listening to right now? the wonder pets singing about being small. i really hate the wonder pets.
If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go? the beach. any beach as long as it was nice and i could sit there and read or nap for the hour.
Which language do you want to learn? french
What do you love most about where you currently live? i live in the city which i love. good food, cool stuff to do, etc. philadelphia is also ideally located because it takes to hours to drive to nyc, two hours to drive to the shore, two hours to drive to the mountains. i really like living in philly, come to think of it.
What style is your current home decorated in? ummm...pretty traditional/classic i guess. nothing too funky, which i would totally change if i was rich.
If you were a time traveler what era would you live in? i'm pretty sure it's the 50's. whenever marilyn monroe and jayne mansfield were hot. i would totally rock then. this ultra skinny thing is totally not me.
What is your favorite color? red, i guess, but i wear black A LOT.
What is your favorite piece of clothing in your own wardrobe? hmmm...way too difficult...probably my black patent leather shoes with the big bow across the toes.
What were you doing ten years ago? leaving my four month old baby with babysitters to start a new job.
If you had $300 now, what would you spend it on? probably bills. maybe stuff for our vacation, but if i got to be totally frivolous and irresponsible with it, i would get one of my tattoos redone.
What are you going to do after this? shower and go food shopping, then pick the boys up from camp
What are your favorite films? dirty dancing, wedding crashers, old school, the hangover, the commitments.
Your favorite books? gone with the wind, little women, wicked, natural born charmer
Do you collect anything? books. i could save SOOOO much money if i would go to the damn library. i really like to own my books though. i totally reread ones i like. someday i will have a room with bookshelves and i can fill it (even if most of them are romance novels). oh, and i guess accessories. i really have a lot of shoes and jewelry (cheap, fun stuff, not good stuff)
What makes you follow a blog? someone that is funny and that i can relate to
What was the most enjoyable thing you did today? sat at the computer reading blogs and drinking coffee while the boys are at camp and the girls played nicely together.
Ann's Question:What makes you comment on a blog? when i have something to say about the post or if it is someone who frequently comments on my blog
Amy's Question:What is your favorite thing to do when you have some free time? read
Annissa's Question:As you know I homeschool -- If you could would you? Do you agree with homeschooling? not totally. i think kids need the interaction with others and i also need the break, honestly.
Tonya's Question:What is a talent you wished you had? i wish i could play the piano
Kyooty's Question: If you could be any other animal other then Human, what would you be? i guess a dog, because people treat them like humans without the responsibilities. i'm totally not a dog person, though.
Carrin's Question: Rush just told me that by 2042, white people will be the minority. Do you believe that? Would that be a big deal to you? that's pretty crazy. i guess i believe it, but i'm not really sure how i feel about it.
isabel's Question: Would you want your blog to be as popular as Dooce? What would be some of the pros and cons? i guess i would want to be the popular because then i could probably make money from blogging or someone would ask me to write a book and that would be a good thing. however, i would imagine that it is a lot of work to keep that many people amused, and i don't know if i have the kind of time/dedication to my blog to do that.
my question: what made you start writing a blog in the first place?
i am going to pass this on to alicia at it ain't easy being cheesy and karie at one fish, two fish... because they seem like they would do this kind of thing (even though i totally understand if they don't). have fun, girls!


  1. Sitting at the computer reading blogs and drinking coffee during naptime is my fav pastime!

  2. Ok so we share the same addiction...I am here reading blogs when I should be cutting my sons hair and taking a shower...still in my jammies. It's noon. I fail! LOL

    I love you to death!!

  3. thanks! in case anyone was wondering what the final decision on dinner tonight is...i am making crabcakes with a red pepper cream sauce and asparagus grilled in a meyer lemon oil. the kids are having chicken nuggets and corn.

  4. Crabcakes! I love crabcakes. That totally distracted me from what I was going to say. I have to say that I'm amused that you cook two meals - one for adults and one for kids. :)

  5. I love crabcakes!! I agree on the second meal for kids, then you avoid wasting food on them that they won't eat. Somedays I hate being a short order cook, and others, makes sense to not waste good food and money!

  6. i must say, girls, the crabcakes were good. and two meals is the only way to go here. i don't have enough fight left in me at this point in the day to try to get everyone to eat the same thing!

  7. Are you guys adding a question with each tag stop??? LOL!!!

    I also just like someone to cook for me. I don't care what food it is.

  8. How cool.

    The Wonder Pets also annoy me.

  9. I think we're all addicted to blogging LOL

  10. Thank you for posting what you had for dinner, I was up pretty late last night wondering about it :) And it sounds delicious! I wish I could cook good stuff like that.

    And totally with you on the blogging addiction. It's actually starting to annoy the hubby. Oh well :)

  11. Hey hey! Thanks for following & the link!!

  12. Man! Can I come have dinner at your house?! That sounds good!!

    And I love that you'd get one of your tats re-done. I like that choice )

  13. Great get to know yous! Thanks for sharing...and thanks for stopping by!

  14. Wow!!! I'm soooo excited I'm not the only one who could read blogs all day!!! I stay up waaaaay to late with my laptop in bed reading blogs too!
