Old School Blogging

Yesterday's post was pretty random so I thought it was a sure sign I should hop on this wagon too!

It reminded me of early Internet chatting days when you would ask random questions of strangers to get to know them better.  I'm all about surveys, questionnaires, and social exercises.  Plus, I'm really bored at work today.
Here it goes...

What is the last thing you watched on TV?

Last thing I personally watched or what was on when I was in the room?  Last night my husband watched an episode of "Moonshiners" while I started the book the Love Dare for Parents.  The last time I remember watching TV this week was Cutthroat Kitchen.

When did you last step outside? What were you doing?
About an hour ago to retrieve a squeeze bottle of Crystal Light for the mega water consumption I'm trying to endure daily.

What is on the walls of the room you are in?

I'm at work and in a very open space.  My cubicle actually doesn't have walls, as I'm basically out in the open on a raised counter.  Think "former bank teller" window.  And I'm not taking pics because my co-workers will think I'm weirder than they already do.

If you became a multi-millionaire overnight, what would you buy?

I would fund our Austin's Legacy scholarship for generations to come.  My church would have their dream building/campus as we've outgrown our space.  Our family would escape for a lengthy vacation on a remote island.  And we'd return to a log cabin in the woods, on a hill, by a lake, with an enormous back porch and amazing views of the sunset. 

Tell me something about you that most people don’t know.

I can't stand cotton balls.  Their texture freaks me out.  Think fingernails on a chalkboard.  Maybe a lot of my readers already know that??  So, another one is I imagine myself someday running a marathon, which in my physical state and the knees I have seems rather impossible in this moment.

Who made the last incoming call on your phone?

I had to go look.  It was my husband last night on his way home from work.

If you could change something about your home, without worry about expense or mess, what would you do?

My kitchen.  I hate the wallpaper but I'm too lazy and unskilled to fix it.  I would love to rip everything out and start cabinets, new counters, etc. 

What was the last thing you bought?

A pint of gizzards at Lee's Famous Recipe.  I'm somewhat addicted. 
But other than food, it would have to be the phone Banjee I got to start walking more.  It is basically a band that goes on your arm and holds your phone/money/etc, as I wear yoga pants (because I'm fat and they're comfy, not because I do downward dog) at every opportunity and never have pockets.

Would you go bungee jumping or sky diving?

Eek, probably neither.  I'm a control freak and neither of those allow me to be in charge.  If I were forced to choose, sky diving, just because the view would be better.

If you could eat lunch with one famous person, who would it be?
I'm with Anna on this one, there's nobody famous enough to entice me.  If wishes were granted, it would be lunch with Austin, just one more time.  But I could care less about the food, I'd just want to hug his neck.

Which store would you choose to max out your credit card?

We don't have credit cards.  Haven't since early stupid days of our young marriage.  Nothing is worth paying back all that interest!  If it were a free to me credit card though...SAMs.

Is the glass half empty or half full?

I live my life (and write this blog) with the belief that it is half full.  Sure, I have my moments, but I know there is JOY in every single day.

What’s the farthest-away place you’ve been?

Jamaica.  Oh, how I miss fresh calamari on the beach...sigh.

What’s under your bed? 

I'm too scared to look.  (tee hee)  Seriously, boxes from my last job I haven't made the time to clear out yet.  It is among my spring cleaning plans though.  Promise.

What is your favorite time of the day?

Early evening, once home and dinner is done.  That quiet comfort of just being home with family at the end of a day.

What Inspires You?

God.  The legacy Austin left.  People who survive and thrive through tragedy.  Sunrises.  Butterflies.  Finding JOY.

I don't mind cotton balls, but CHALK is hard for me. Makes me clench my teeth!

I love chalk. Maybe from early days of pretending to be a teacher? But one of my #Pinterest inspirations is to paint a giant framed chalkboard for the kitchen to write things on each day.

Kim Steele said...

I am OK with cotton balls, but I can see how their texture could be a problem. I have that with certain types of fabric. My hands tend to be dry and the way they catch on certain material really bothers me - I just don't want to touch when that happens.
Also, now I am totally thinking about calamari. And on the beach? Perfect!

Elaine Alguire said...

I like your take on why would go sky diving. It would be gorgeous up there, wouldn't it?

So nice to "meet" you through Old School Blogging, thanks for linking up! :)

heather blair said...

i'm the same way with certain fabrics too! scratchy towels!!
thanks for the link up idea. It was fun. ;)

heather blair said...

yes, i'd just rather have the view without the work!
Nice to "meet" you too. OSB was fun!

Julia Hunter said...

I feel the same way about sky diving and bungee jumping.

Teresa said...

So far, we're all glass half full that!!!

heather blair said...

Is there any other way to be? ;)

Kimberly said...

Oh the water...totally sympathize. I take medications that make my mouth dryer than the dessert so I have to pound back water all day...and spend far too much time in the bathroom :)
