This one's hot: A totally stolen Meme Monday

I shamelessly stole this from my chica Perpstu and her delightful Popping Bubbles. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right?

1. What are your current obsessions?
John Adams; Rays baseball; stupid Facebook games (MAFIA WARS!) and quizzes; FRS Low Cal Berry water mix-in stuff; Guiding Light; the shrinking and fabulous-ing of my tuchus.

2. Which item from your wardrobe do you wear most often? 
My pjs. Cami top and shorts. Stay-at-home wear at its best.

3. What’s for dinner? 
Lean hamburger patty, big salad, orzo with spinach.

4. Last thing you bought? 
Groceries. Boring. But necessary.

5. What are you listening to? 
This song!

6. If you were a god/goddess who would you be? 
Aphrodite. How’s that for a surprise, eh?

7. Favorite holiday spots? 
Captiva Island, Cancun, Manhattan

8. Reading right now?
First read: McCullough’s John Adams.

Re-read: Heart of Darkness. Been quoting and referencing it a lot lately ("Mr. Kurtz. He dead." and  "The horror. The horror." work in so many marvelous ways...) and that was my signal to pick it up again. And nothing addresses the human condition quite like it. One of my favorite books of all time.

9. Four words to describe yourself...
Cerebral, mischievous, sassy, strong

10. Guilty pleasure? 
Tabloid magazines, salt and vinegar potato chips and grape soda.

11. Who or what makes you laugh until you’re weak? 
Besides Will – it depends. Usually it’s just being with the right set of people and the right vibe. I laugh openly and freely and as often as possible. It’s one of my greatest joys.

12. Planning to travel to next? 
Captiva Island and NYC!!!

13. Best thing you ate or drank lately? 
The pork roast I made last weekend. Garlic and rosemary and pork fat (which RULES!) Melt in your mouth. And no swine flu in sight.

14. When did you last get tipsy? 
Last Wednesday night. Me and George Thorogood. We drink alone.

15. Care to share some wisdom? 
I’ll let The ‘Stones speak for me… words to live by

16. Nicest thing anyone’s ever said to you? 
That Will is lucky to have me as his mama – and that my strength is inspiring.

The mama part is a given, you inspire us all, and we respect you.

Might I suggest Founding Brothers
by Ellis & Smith for your next read?

Best mamma award does indeed go to you! Stay at home clothes and grape soda - two of my favorite things!
