"...you are utterly absurd."*

I swore I was not doing this meme.
But Eleanor is a rock star in my world.
And she tagged me.
So here we go:

What are your current obsessions?
Jodi Picoult novels, Twilight/Flat Edward, Penguins hockey, cherry cordial Hershey Kisses

Which item from your wardrobe do you wear most often?
My Old Navy sweetheart-cut jeans – comfy, cute, and perfectly faded.

What's for dinner?
God only knows.

What's your greatest fear at the moment?
That we are out of rum. And that H won’t get home till 7pm, as is his wont lately.

What are you listening to?
Seg drumming in the basement, Primo smacking a hockey ball around the yard, and some neighbor playing a lovely concerto

If you were a goddess what would you be?
A goddess? Me? Surely you jest.
I’d be one of the Vestal Virgins and I’d be sacrificed.

What are your favourite holiday spots?
The Jersey shore (Stone Harbor)
New Orleans

What are you reading right now?
The third Traveling Pants book, Philippa Gregory's The Other Boleyn Girl, The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie, and Jodi Picoult's Nineteen Minutes.

What is your guilty pleasure?
Reading and eating chocolate in bed after everyone else is asleep
Watching Twilight 14 times.

Who or what makes you laugh?
Tina Fey.
Terzo.
My friend A who is sarcastic and funny and does great impressions.
Julia.
Mimi Smartypants

What is your favourite spring thing to do?
Going to the park after school, with snacks, juice boxes, the soccer ball, and the boys. I optimistically bring my knitting AND a book. And everybody is up there, and I get to hang out with all my mom friends.

Where are you planning to travel next?
Oh, sweet Jesus. Who cares as long as it’s not with my children?

What is the best thing you ate or drank lately?
Ate: Panera’s grilled chicken Caesar salad
Drank: That cold Penn Pilsner last Monday night tasted awesome

When was the last time you were tipsy?
I truly can’t remember, which either means it’s such a standard state of affairs that it doesn’t register, OR I have remarkable self-control. (I will bet on A.)

What is your favourite ever film?
"Moonstruck"

What is the biggest lesson you've learned from your children?
That I was not cut out to be a mother.

What song can't you get out of your head?
“We Are the Champions”

What book do you know you should read but refuse to?
There is no book I SHOULD read but refuse to. The books I refuse to read most decidedly do not deserve to be read.

What is your physical abnormality/abnormal physical ability?
All of my fat lives on my stomach so I still look six months pregnant?
I like my feet?
My teeth are naturally so yellow it’s embarrassing?

What is your favourite colour?
Green or grey

****

Edward Cullen, Twilight, Ch. 4, p.82

"We are the champions" is now stuck in my head. Anything, anything but that!

(Heads off trying to remember the words to an innocuous Mary Poppins number...)

Janet said...

Just finished "Pants", rented the movie for this weekend and requested the second.

What do you think of "Nineteen Minutes"?

Mmmmm chocolate in bed! Best of all worlds.

ThirdCat said...

I like those afternoons too.

Eleanor said...

They make cherry cordial Hershey Kisses??!! I seriously have to visit the US again, soon.

I also adore Moonstruck.

You made me laugh out loud with your answer to what you learn from your kids. I really really wish that I had written that myself.

14 times?!!! I think that's bloody fabulous. You are a LEGEND.

P.S. Please tell flat Edward I send my love....

Mary said...

I love Moonstruck too.

And know that I need to read Pants..

How do you like The Other Bolyn Girl? It has been on that pile of books I plan to read for a while now.

wv: process

Badger said...

Well, I finished New Moon and ... I still don't get it. I just don't get it. I DO NOT GET WHY ANYONE OVER AGE 14 LIKES THESE BOOKS. What is WRONG with me? Am I just an unimaginative, humorless git? A dried-up husk of beef jerky with no heart? WHAT?

Loretta said...

How is Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie? It is on my wish list and don't know whether to hit"buy".

Oh and Happy Mother's Day!

Caro said...

You most definitely are cut out to be a mother! You rock.

I have the belly thing too. Do you also have the flat butt that goes with it?
