Because these just never. get. old.

Well, maybe they get old to YOU, but I could read these about my [more creative] friends all day long. So here I go again ...

1. What’s one food or drink you couldn’t go a week without?
I'm really flexible about drinks. Diet Coke or Diet Pepsi. Sweet or unsweet tea (with Sweet & Low). Coke Zero or Diet Dr Pepper. It would be far easier to come up with a drink that I could go the rest of my life without: water. Food ... ahhh, food. Before Jenny Craig, I would have said chocolate, but I suppose you can go for a week without ANYTHING. I just don't WANT to.

2. What’s one food you tried once, but will never eat again? Seafood, of all types. I get queasy just thinking about it. "But you'd love TILAPIA. It's not fishy at all!" No, I wouldn't. "What about shrimp? Surely you eat shrimp." No, I don't.

3. What’s the most beautiful drive you’ve ever taken? It's probably a tie between Yosemite National Park and Grand Teton National Park. And they are Large. You have to drive them to see it all.

4. Which long-lost childhood object would you most like to find? My sticker collection. I can still remember all the joy that collection brought me. Even the acid-free, lignin-free collection that I have today for scrapbooking just isn't the same as all those scratch-and-sniff, googly-eyed and puffy stickers. THEY HAD PERSONALITY, Y'ALL.

5. What’s your favorite part of Thanksgiving dinner? Debbie's sweet potato casserole with double topping.

6. If you had to choose one, would you prefer a housekeeper, cook, gardener, or personal secretary? Housekeeper, FOR SURE.

7. Which celebrity do people say you resemble? Julie Brown.

Just kidding. The white one:

Is it any clearer in a less-flattering picture of her?

8. If you could give all human beings one virtue, which would you choose? The ability to make me laugh. Oh, wait. Is that a virtue? I've decided, yes.

9. When you’re down, what do you do to feel better? Eat chocolate.

10. Which vice would you indulge in if it had no negative side effects? Eating whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted.

11. When you were young, what did you want to be when you grew up? A teacher. AND THE GOOD LORD INTERVENED, because I would be TERRIBLE in that role.

12. What do you enjoy, or miss the most, about being single? THE QUIET.

13. Is work valuable for its own sake? I do not even understand this question.

14. Which of your personality traits would you most like to change? Overcommitting myself.

15. What’s the last thing you cried about? When Jonah was born and he was sick. Of course, now he's the source of daily smiles, that little miracle. Oh, wait. Also when Ellie and Mo-mo died.

16. Would you rather live by the beach or in the mountains? Mountains. I typically don't get sand in my sheets in the mountains.

17. What’s the hardest thing you’ve ever done? Watch two of my grandparents lose every memory they ever had.

18. What makes you laugh the hardest? Watching America's Funniest Home Videos with my sister. We practically asphyxiate ourselves with laughter. Seriously, it's a miracle we survive when we watch that show together.

I love that AFV comes on most evenings on ABC family right before we go to bed. A good hard laugh is the best way to end the day. :) I agree with the 'miss most about being single' the quiet and the freedom to go out and do what you want when you want. Oh how I miss that.

I had a fabulous sticker collection too!! AHHH the memories...

Kelly, we were so particular about keeping them on the sheets they came on, not adhering them to a pge in a sticker album. We didn't want to "reduce their value or compromise their tradeability" by sticking them down. We were HARDCORE.

Oh that was a fun read. You totally reminded me that I use to have a massive sticker collection as well! I wonder were it went?

I love reading this... :)
I had to come by because you mentioned that the "refashioned" lounge pants would be a fun use of sentimental t-shirts. The one I used was a hogiyogi shirt from my husbands first job in high school- definitely not wearable for him, but I wanted to keep it around, you know?
Anyhow, thanks for stopping in and commenting every week! :)
