You never ask me any questions, so I'm just gonna offer up a bunch of stuff

Sometimes all the nature in nature ruins the experience for me. Examples: mosquitoes and ants in The Preserve, my backyard and my driveway. See also: the Heated Hotness that is the summer sun in Alabama.
I can be very selfish. I try not to be, but sometimes I just want the really good parking spot, sometimes my need to record Grey's Anatomy trumps your need to record Battlefields of Ancient Mesopotamia or Whatever Else is Playing on the History Channel, and sometimes I HAVE to eat some of the raw cookie dough before I bake it.

I'm surprised that whomever wrote the book of Revelation didn't include ABC's Bachelor Pad in the list of signs of the end times. Because, PEOPLE. It is epically humiliating to the entire human race, that we live among people like that. I should know, because I am watching it.

White legal pads, Sharpie pens and Post-it Notes are my go-to office supplies. I cannot make it without them. Perhaps I ought to start grooming at least one of my boys to be an Office Depot store manager when they grow up.

It freaks me out when I get into someone's car at the same time they do, and when the radio comes on, it's on NPR. Like, they were listening to it the last time they turned the engine off, not knowing that I would be riding with them to lunch later. Like, it wasn't a deliberate setup to make them look smart ... they were ACTUALLY listening to it for pleasure. Or whatever. I will just wave my freak flag high right now: I am not smart enough to enjoy listening to NPR.

The ONLY time I will listen to NPR is on Saturday evenings at 6 pm est. I grew up with my Dad listening to that every week on the way home from my grandparents farm. I love the Prairie Home Companion. :)

Rachel, We actually used to listen to PHC all the time when we were little!

OMG! There's a lady I work with and every time I get in her car it's on some classic station... BORING!!! LOL!

Hey, Katherine! Thanks so much for your super sweet comments about our nursery! You should definitely go bold for the master bedroom, fun!! Too are so right about the Bachelor Pad! I wonder how they can air some of this stuff on prime time tv, I mean last week there was a kissing contest! Of course, its like a car wreck, terrible but you have to look...that's why when I wasn't going to be at home tonight to watch it I called my husband and told him to DVR it for me. Completely pathetic!

Um...since I'm the person you get in the car with most often at lunch, I'm guessing you're talking to me?

I can't quit NPR.

Katherine @ Grass Stains said...

Mel, I wasn't talking about you, but you're right. You DO love you some NPR. Actually, there are a LOT of people I'm friends with who fit the description!

I'll ask you questions!
1. At what age do you feel you were physically your best so far?
2. If you had to teach a high school class, what would it be?
3. If you could tell your 17-year-old self one thing, what would it be?
4. Same question to your 25-yr-old self.
5. Same question to you 35-yr-old self.
6. If you had to choose, would you rather only see or hear a movie?
7. If you had to choose, would you choose no radio/music in your car, or no air conditioning?
