Sunday Stealing Meme....

What time is it?
Time to get some dishes done...but need to wait for the kids to get back to sleep.

Quick. What’s the first green thing you see?
A headband to put glowsticks makes bunny ears.

Do you like those Sudoku puzzles?
No, they don't really teach me anything and I get frustrated by some.

Do you own a plaid shirt?
No, but I borrow my Husband's to stay warm.

What’s your favorite kind of pie?

Have you read a book today?
No, but I am looking for a very missing library book.

Do you like going to museums?
Yes, especially The Field Museum in Chicago and The Art Institute of Chicago. I'd like to see that museum that Ross Perot owns.

Have you ever been to Washington D.C.? Or your nation's capital?
Sadly no.

Have you ever been to the state of Washington?
No...but would love to spend some serious time in the forests.

Do you like apple juice? often makes me sick.

How cold is it outside?
Probably too cold....that doesn't take much as I have Raynuad's Phenomenon.

Have you ever taken a course in Chemistry?
Yes, but I do not perform well when the formulas start becoming more like Math.

Do you like to draw?
Yes. I am very good at landscapes and still life. I am very bad at drawing people (read this as no ability at all). I rarely draw...goes back to a childhood issue. My mother said before her passing that she thinks I should sell drawings.

What do you put on your french fries?
I dip them in mayo and bits of onion...a German thing that someone taught me.

Not necessarily. I like everything to have meaning/sentimentality.

I more tolerate yellow mustard or use it as an ingredient. I like Boetje's(stone-ground). I like Alstertor...a smooth Dusseldorf-style mustard, imported, packed in a reusuable beer mug.

Would you ever work at a movie theater?

Do you have a phone charger in your car?

Have you ever slept through an alarm?

With Canadian ham or jalepeno...not at the same time. When I was at a friend's pizza party, I learned from another friend that pineapple helps tone down jalepeno.

Do you like to hold hands?

Do you want a tattoo?

When is the last time you ordered from a catalog?
I haven't anytime recently. I do use the code on the back of the catalog if I order some things though (discount).

Myself. I have about 6 totes from my childhood.

I don't was on a roadtrip.

What was the first song you heard today?
I haven't heard any music in the last 24 hours or so. That is RARE.

Have you ever gotten a magazine subscription as a gift? "Parents." It would have been great if the company had sent all the issues...grumble, grumble. Fast forward five years: I currently have a complimentary subscription to that magazine and will be blogging about articles sometime soon.

What was the last video you watched on YouTube?
A video of an albino peacock displaying its feathers. At one point, the bird also made a sound.

If I had come across this during my Mother's lifetime, I would have gotten her a copy.

Overripe blood orange and peanut butter is a horrible combination to accidentally have in your mouth.

Got it done:
-----Let my local theater know that I would like them to show Zootopia. :-) The kids would be thrilled if it came.

-----Preschooler enjoyed this FREE Mowgli and Shere Khan coloring page. :-)
Started reading Preschooler "The Jungle Books." We are on page 8..."Mowgli's Brothers." We might go to see the upcoming movie...I will have to check out that PG rating a little more. I wrote to our favorite small theater in hopes they will show this movie (always a happy day when they can get a Disney/family showing). It is GREAT that John Favreau(Iron Man) is the director. :-) If nothing else, it will definitely be a DATE NIGHT MOVIE. :-)
