Me, Me, Me, Meme

So Bas was kind enough to share this meme...they are fun to learn about our Blogland friends.  So...here you go...random things about ... ME.  If you feel so inspired, copy them and answer your own.  If you don't blog, please pick any/all and answer them in a comment!  It's great to share...REALLY!

1: Do you like to use post-it notes?
I love Post-it notes.  I use them for to-do lists, quick notes, items to get done.  When I am throwing a party, I've been known to have Post-it's for each dish to be prepared and as I cook or complete them, I recycle it.  I'll do the same with serving dishes before a big meal - think Thanksgiving or Easter type of thing...I'll set out the serving pieces and put Post-It's on for each item going into the dish.  My Sir has been known to make lists for me on them too - now THOSE Post-it's I LOVE!!
2: Do you take shampoos/conditioner bottles from hotels?
Sometimes.  Frequently, I'm traveling with younger folks so I'm more focused on trying to hunt and gather and wrangle.  But when they are nice shampoos (infrequent), I'll take them.  It's NOT steeling...it's there for us to use.
 
3: Have you ever stolen a street sign before?
Um, yes?  OK, Yes, I have...I'm not proud, but there you have it.
4: Do you have freckles?
Yep, I have them on my face, but as I've aged, they've faded a bit.  I also have them as a birthmark.
5: Do you always smile for pictures?
Always.  I had to take a passport pic and they wanted me NOT to smile and it was nearly impossible.   
6: What's your biggest peeve?
Biggest, wow, that's tough.  I would say rudeness...maybe?  Parents not parenting their children is also close to the top of my list.
7: What's your favorite food?
Hmmmm, well I love ice-cream, I love Mexican EVERYTHING, I love seafood....
8: What movies could you watch over and over and still love?
I watch a lot of movies over and over.  I love Sahara, The Princess Bride, Star Wars, Harry Potter, Sweet Home Alabama, Pretty Woman, Sabrina, Monty Python and the Holy Grail...Oh, eclectic tastes - huh?
9: When was the last time you wrote a letter to someone on paper?
I wrote Thank You notes for Christmas gifts in January....so about a month ago.
10: Favorite kind of sandwich?
Turkey and Swiss, for sure.  I also like a grilled PB&J :)
11: Best thing to eat for breakfast?
Belgium waffles with strawberries.  Yum!

12: What is your usual bedtime?
Between 12 and 1 typically.  And EVERY night I got to sleep and either exchange with Sir or mentally think...tomorrow, I'm going to bed earlier.

13: Do you sing in the shower?
Always!!  Best acoustics :)
14: Would you ever strip or pose nude in a magazine?
Ya, no ... they're not asking.  Now for Sir, Yup...you bet. Been there, done that.

  1. Hi Fiona,
    Shhh, don't say you got the meme from me. I, eh, kind of stole it. From PK, who got it from SNP, who got it from somebody else.
    Some very important questions:
    What happened to the street sign? Did Sir Q force you to return it?
    Monty Python? That must have been a very old movie, the day you were born. Where did you learn about that one?

    1. Um, Sorry? I did copy it from yours though :)

      Hmmm, I don't know what happened. I had it for a while. It was before Sir Q.

      Monty Python ROCKS...so many useful quotes in everyday life. My children now watch it and find it hilarious...It's timeless!

      Hugs,

  2. Fiona, Question 10. I also like Turkey, and Swiss, as a sandwich. I also have visited these two fine countries, along with 150 other international countries around the world.

  3. Fiona:)
    It was so much fun reading this:) I just love these things!

    Okay...#5....I sure hope this doesn't happen to me. You see, we are going next week to get our passports and if they ask me not to smile, oh my goodness.....that will be so hard to do!

    #8 - It is funny you listed The Princess Bride because Mr. B actually recorded that one just the other week so our boys could watch it. When he told me that, I said "What movie is that?" I thought he was going to fall out right then and there hahahah....yep...I have never seen it! He then informed me that he would be making me watch it soon ha!

    Thanks again for sharing:)

  5. I love the fact that you label serving dishes :) I have a habit of labeling everything, but I've never labeled serving dishes before.

    1. Well, I found that if I set everything out then I don't forget and I'm not stressing putting things together at the end. It helps. Post-it's rock for this kind of organizing :)

  6. Holy Grail - an old movie! Nooo! that must make me ancient. It's not old - 1975; it's a timeless classic. As a Brit it is a definite favourite and as teenagers, my brother and I learnt the script by heart, a long with numerous other python sketches.

    so Ni! and a bit of shrubbery to go with it!

    I also like the Princess Bride which is just as silly... (I use to fence, so the left and right hand thing makes me laugh)

    1. I totally agree...a timeless classic is a perfect descriptor!! Oh, I used to be able to recite HUGE portions of the movie...as it is, I still quote it regularly. The Princess Bride also has many fabulous parts and quotable lines :)

      Thanks,

    1. Oh, abby...you have GOT to try grilled PB&J...it is amazing! It melts the peanut butter and grills the bread and the jelly kind of warms and caramelizes....yum yum yum.
