Meet Me on Monday

I imagine there will be a week when I again post a "Meet Me on Monday" on Monday, I just don't know when.

1. What is your favorite all time movie?
You should know me well enough by now to know there's no ONE answer to a question like this.  There's the Harry Potter series, the Lord of the Ring trilogy, Love Actually, Beautiful Girls, The Nightmare Before Christmas...

2. How often do you go over the speed limit?
If I'm highway driving, daily.  If I'm just on the backstreets and in the neighborhood, pretty much not at all.

3. What really gives you the creeps?
Worms.  I hate worms.  I don't know why, I know they're ultra-valuable and life would pretty much end if they weren't around but I hate worms.  They creep me out to no end and one day, I'm sure I'm going have to talk to a little boy about why he can't wave or throw worms at mommy.

4. What is your favorite snack?
I'm just not picky.  Anything sweet, many things salty, occasional healthy items.

5. Would you rather be a dog named Killer or a cat named Fluffy?
Fluffy sounds pampered and taken care of in a soft life.  Killer sounds like he was raised to be intimidating and spends a lot of time outside in the rain.  What do you think?

Meet Me on Monday

Sorry not to have posted this for a week or two but it's been a bit hectic around here.  We went from thinking that we might be selling our house and hopefully moving to NC in 6+ months to putting our house on the market, scrambling to make it showable, taking an out-of-state vacation with our parents and accepting a bid on the house in the past 2 weeks.  Needless to say that brings a lot of baggage with it and I think the insanity is JUST starting.  ugh.  ANYWAY!  Meet me on Monday.

1. What is your favorite pasta dish?
I'm actually not a huge fan of Italian.  I don't mind making some at home but I have a hard time going out and paying a lot for tomato sauce and boiled pasta.  That said, I LOVE the Penne Rustica at Macaroni Grill.  I have a knock-off recipe for it that I HAVE to try one day after I get over the fact that it takes about 12 gallons of heavy cream and contains a bazillion calories in one serving.  It's easy to not think about those things when you get it in a restaurant but you slapped with it when you make your own.  Of course, a good pumpkin ravioli is a good thing too...

2. What is the last thing you do before going to bed?
Turn out the light.  ;)  Seriously.  I'm probably on the computer surfing or working on something or working on a puzzle in a GAMES magazine which nearly always lulls me to sleep.

3. How many nights a week do you go out to eat?
1 or 2.  Usually I fix a meal for the week on Sunday and we'll eat it through the week.  By Wed or Thur, we're generally bloody sick of it so go out for a change of scenery and/or flavor.  Sometimes I'll fix something different mid-week but we still want the change in scenery.

4. Are you an avid book reader?
Sometimes.  I used to practically eat books but I don't tend to read much these days.  My spare time in the evening is spent on the computer or those GAMES magazines.

5. Would you rather have x-ray vision or bionic hearing?
X-ray vision.  Heck.  I'd be happy with 20/20.  HECK.  Even 20/100.  I have 20/750 and 20/900 when I don't have my contacts in or glasses on.  Anything would be better.

Card Patterns Sketch Challenge 80

Hey all!  Happy Labor Day!  I hope you're all having a good, and hopefully extended, weekend!

I just finished making this card for my cousin.  I was supposed to go to her baby shower this coming Sat. but due to complications she was having last week, Ian was brought to meet his adoring fans about 2mos. early.  Apparently he's doing well and was breathing on his own from the start.  In fact, he was doing so well that I heard that even though he was only 2lbs 1oz., he was taken to meet his father before being taken to what I'm guessing is NICU.  In any case, rumor has it that the shower is still on?!?! but we won't be going since 1. we suspect it will be postponed and 2. with the house on the market, we'd like to be here to keep an eye on things rather than travelling down to VA.  At some point though, I think I'll be getting a shower gift to Katie and here's the card.
