It's All about Me ..... Again ..... Part 2

This is the conclusion to my It's All About Me.....Again Post.
If you're interested, you can go back and read Part 1 if you missed it.
It's Riveting!

28. Favorite Food? Anything that my grandmother used to make.

29. Scary Movies or Happy Endings? there are 2 kinds of movies I like and they are extreme opposites of each other. I like movies like Saving Private Ryan, We Were Soldiers etc, and I like sappy musicals like The Sound of Music and Fiddler on the Roof. (P.S. You can only call them sappy if you really like them). Used to LOVE Gone with the Wind but I OD'ed on it.

30. Last movie you watched? I watched Rocky Balboa on tv the other night. Never was a huge Rocky fan. I liked the first 2 alright. However, CK and I were just talking about it that day so I figured it was meant to be. It wasn't bad but it kind of reminded me of the last Indiana Jones movie. Harrison Ford was just too old to be putting himself in situations like that. I will say that I would never have thought someone Sylvester Stallones age could have pumped himself up to look like he did. He easily put the majority of any 20-30 year old man to shame. I'm surprised he didn't have a heart attack with all the working out he had to have done. off track a bit there. Monkey's Are Funny.

31. What color shirt are you wearing? I own about 25 blue firefighter t-shirts. So can you guess?

32. Summer or Winter? We all went through this with the January or July thing. Summer of course! Winter is too cold. Everyone agreed except His Princess. Where she lives (where the kangaroos jump out in front of the cars), July is COLD!

33. Hugs or Kisses? No offense......don't touch me. (sorry...I have issues.....LOTS and LOTS of issues!)

34. Favorite Dessert? My grandmother's Blackberry roll with cream. The only thing I have ever had that is close to it is the one CK makes with my grandmother's recipe. Of course getting recipes from ones grandmother can be difficult. Exactly how much is a pinch, a dash, just a bit, or "til you feel like it is enough"?

35. What book are you reading right now? I'm not reading any book right now. Obviously I am typing right now.

36. What is on your mouse pad? The Virginia Capital Building. (A family member works there).

37. What did you watch on tv last night? I only watch NCIS, Law and Order Criminal Intent and Special Victims, House and CSI. I'm sure I was watching a re-run of one of those.

38. Favorite Sound? Oh Come ON! I don't know. I guess the sound of silence.

39. Rolling Stones or Beatles? Yes...among many others.

40. What is the farthest you have been away from home? In real life or in my head? I don't think the latter can be measured in miles.

41. Do you have Special Talents? Yep!

42. Where were you born? In a galaxy far far away........but my birth cert says VA.

*whew* We're done with that! Now you know more about me than I do.

You Tube's not very happy this morning, but, that's OK--I know that song!

"I don't think the latter can be measured in miles." But it is treasured in smiles, for many miles!

And your love for your grandmother obviously shows through these posts. I think we should have a Celebrate Grandma Day and we can serve up their favorite treats. OOH! We can do a virtual Grandparents' Day celebration on the 13th with these food items--YUMMY!

Thanks for all your sharing! That was a workout!!

P.S. 5 more days!

You crack me up!

You are the funniest monkey on the whoooole blog-o-spher

Kelly Combs said...

Great post! ;-)

Beverlydru said...

You ought to do a post on your preparedness. I was fascinated by your comment today and want to be near you in case of emergency. You could get hired by the State of Florida to teach preparedness... then we could be friends in person. I'll try to remember not to hug you. : ) I love these type of posts. And you are funny.

Irritable Mother said...

Regarding #33 - You crack me up! But that's good to know, in case I ever do meet you face-to-face. I'll just smile at you and wave. *grin*

And you did make sense in the comment you left this morning. Thank you.
I am not of the belief that we should not be pleased with the work God does through us. At all. But I struggle at times with taking pride in me, rather than Him in me.
Apart from God, I am nothing. With Him, I am an instrument for His glory.
Thanks for your encouragement!

#39 the operative word is "or"

KrippledWarrior said...

an almost PERFECT MATCH, so far. I'm big on hugs... Do you like riding motorcycles? Do you speak with a Virgian's lilt?
There's so much more to you than a list could define. But it's been fun.

Greg C said...

You come right over here and give me a big hug. Come on, I know you really want to. :) So it sounds like we do in fact have the same mother since we were born in the same far away place. Well Shasbot.

Edie said...

Hey Sue J changed her profile pic.

29. I like your answer. I would add adventure movies and some sci-fi... ok I admit it, I like Star Trek but not Star Wars.

31. Army Green?

33. You have to know that someday I'm going to hug you. It might be on the other side of eternity but someday... so be prepared. :D LOL.

I have to ask, how much does it bother you when someone gets in your bubble?

35. Great minds think alike. :)

38. LOL!

41. Don't give us too many details now. LOL!

42. Are you sure it wasn't "where no man has gone before"? :)

My ADHD Me said...

Edie- Re: How much does it bother me when someone gets in my bubble? No one ever knows because by the time I have finished off the oxygen tank, they have usually moved on.

KW- Sorry, but at the FD, we call motorcycles "Donor Mobiles". HOWEVER, very recently I rode in a race car on a real track at close to 140 mph. It was terrifying and wonderful at the same time. The worst part was that I had no control over the situation as I was the passenger......oh, and didn't you mean "Virginian's" lilt?? lol

YooHoo- Most people think it is overkill. Personally, I think better safe than sorry. Thanks for the nice comment.

CK- haha

Sue J- I think that sounds like a great idea!

Simians ARE capricious.

HisPrincess said...


I'm with you on the Sylvester Stallone/Harrison Ford comment.

And hugs and kisses...apparently my first full sentence to my grandma was "don't you tiss me nana"...enough said!

It can be a bit of a challenge having a husband and son who want to bear hug you all the time. I'm getting better, which is obviously why they are in my life.

Steph has a bubble...and she informs people loudly and persistently to stay out of I've raised another one!
