Monday Minute / Friend Making Monday!

It's time for the Monday Minute...





Monday Minute


This week's guest host is Jules Out Loud. I am not really familiar with this blogger...but I guess I'll check her out! :)

1. If you could interview any famous person, dead or alive, who would it be? What would you ask?

hmmm...there are a lot of people that I'd want to talk to...I know this may sound hokey...but I'd really love to sit down with Taylor Swift!  I know...how old am I???  But she seems so grounded for a celebrity and I'd really like to see if she's truly the "girl next door" that she portrays herself as.  I kind of think she is, though...I just think she'd be a lot of fun!

2. You have to give up one thing for a month. What would it be - car, guilty pleasure (ie. food, drink, fav. tv show), or sex?

I guess I'd have to say guilty pleasure (umm...the sex thing isn't really happening anyway! HAHA!).  I would probably give up TV...it consumes a lot of my time and probably I should cut back anyway!

3. Is there a word/phrase you say that you are made fun of for? If so, what is it?

Not really...I say a lot of stuff that I get made fun of for, though...but nothing regularly

4. Which is a stronger emotion: Anger or Love?

I would say Love...Love can win out over anger.  Think about your kids or family...when you are angry with them, you still love them.  Although, I think they are BOTH pretty strong emotions...

and finally

5. Where was your first job.
 
Well, I was a babysitter extraordinaire from the time I was about 14 or so...but my first true job where I earned a paycheck where they took out taxes, social security and all that was Action Video.  This job was perfect for me...I mean, where else do you get paid to sit around and watch movies???  And I got 4 free rentals per week...yeah...it was super duper! :)

Friend Making Monday: Labor Day

The question du jour is What are you doing for Labor Day?

To which I must answer...not a whole lot of ANYTHING! :)  On Saturday, I swept my carport & front porch...which was a job...especially since I hadn't swept it since the great Flood of 2010...and a whole bunch of dirt and grime and muck was brought up.  Plus my carport seems to be the perfect place for leaves to collect...so, that took a while.  Then, I cleaned out my car and washed it...all in preparation for the beach trip at the end of this week! :)  And I rearranged my living room a bit...well this wasn't much, but it's a change and I like it.  Yesterday I did the church thing, the lunch thing with people from church, the laying on my bed reading a book thing, the Kohls shopping thing and then the hanging out at my sis' thing.  Today so far I went to work for 4 1/2 hours, ate lunch with Kaytee, one of my twin friends, and her friend Caroline...who I found out is ALSO a twin.  I'm telling you, this twin thing is getting out of control! HAHA!  And now, I plan to clean house...encourage Dylan to do some homework after he mows and go to the store.  So...all in all...not too shabby!  It's been a good weekend...and I only have to work 3 full days...and I'm off to the beach! :)  I hope these next three days fly by!!!

Happy Labor Day!

I agree with you on Taylor Swift. She does seem so grounded. It's a nice change to see a celebrity like that.
Girl, I am so jealous you are going to the beach! Have fun!

I also agree with Taylor Swift. And great answers to the questions!

I totally agree with getting rid of TV. It's way too time-consuming ...
