Random Randomness on a Meme Monday

Have you ever been on TV?

Yep –- a handful of times. Did some interviews on local public affairs shows and maybe one or two more things that escape my mind right now.

Have you ever sung in public?
Affirmative – both in groups (choirs and ensembles) and as a solo artiste (plays and variety shows)… but that was many moons ago in lands far far away. Although if given the opportunity…

Have you ever dyed your hair blond?
My hair has been many shades over the years – but never, ever ever anything close to blond.

Have you ever eaten frogs' legs?
Not that I know of.

Have you ever received a present that you really hated?

The cat stove burner covers that my MIL gave me for Christmas one year fall into this category.

You have NO idea.

Have you ever walked into a lamp post?

I’m not the most graceful being ever put on this earth, but I don’t believe I’ve ever gotten that up close and personal with a lamp post.

Have you ever cooked a meal by yourself for more than 15 people?

I have. Lasagna and all the appropriate accoutrements. Went over pretty well, if I remember correctly.

Have you ever fallen or stumbled in front of others?
Oh heavens, yes. You don’t have time for me to regale you with all the tales of my public klutziness.

Have you ever done volunteer work?

Have we just met? I’m passionate about volunteering and giving of one’s time and talent to better one’s community. BIG thing with me.

When is the last time you had a papercut?
Last week. Craft time with the Choir Urchins can be surprisingly dangerous.

What was the best part of your weekend?
Swinging in the park with Will.

Do you like peanut butter?
You betcha.

List three foods you can’t stand.
Coconut. Shrimp. Oysters.

Did you make your bed this morning?
Are you joking?

When it comes to handshakes, are you firm?
Firm and friendly.

What was the most effective punishment for you as a kid? 
Spanking. Ouch. Actually – grounding was a close, close second.

What is your favorite way to fix/eat potatoes?
Tie between roasted in olive oil until the outside is crisp and brown and the inside delightfully fluffy or baked with a crisp, salted skin.

Really....you don't like shrimp? It's my all time favorite thing to eat. I love the Meme Monday because it's always fun learning more about you. I hope you are feeling better.
