Manic Mom's Mental Myriads

Stop by and have a laugh from Manic Mom's Mental Myriads on Motherhood, and some other stuff too, but mostly motherhood, wifehood, thoughts on writing, etc. No politics will be discussed here or geography, and I will not be solving any mathematical equations. Just some BS on whatever I feel like blogging on...

10. Do you prefer a bright or dark room?
To sleep in, dark, pitch black. We called our old bedroom The Al Quada Cave or The Four Seasons, depending on if the bed was made or not. To work or spend time awake, I prefer a bright room.

11. What did you have for breakfast?
Really, must you ask this? Grandeicednonfatsugarfreevanillalatte1/2whip.
Wanna know what lunch was?


13. What were you doing at midnight last night?
I actually made it to bed by then last night, had a terrific night's sleep. I know this because I woke at 6:00 a.m. with a terrible pressure in my bladder because I had not gotten up to pee once.

(What happened to number 12?)
Okay, there was no number 12 when I got this questionnaire, so I'll make one up: What are you doing with your left hand right now?

14. What did your last text message you received on your cell phone say?
"Thanks for the anniversary call." It was from my brother, dated in June. I just realized I had text messaging on my phone last week!

Depends on if it's a pop up or banner of a nude guy.

16. What's an expression that you say a lot?
Rock on dude! Or "Who's Your Daddy?" when I'm trying to get that information from my kids.

Hubby, just five minutes ago when he called me from his girlfriend's house.

18. Last furry thing you touched?
Baxter.

19. How many hours a week do you work?
Work to be paid, or work not to be paid. How many hours are in a week? Subtract about 35-50 for sleep and that's how much I work.

20. How many rolls of film do you need to get developed?
None, and I was in Target just today thinking how nice it is to never have to buy film again!

21. Favourite age you have been so far?
Two was a great year. There was somebody there to always kiss me goodnight, give me food and wipe my butt.

22. Your worst enemy?
A computer virus.

23. What is your current desk top picture?
A screensaver that says I L O V E Y O U ! ! ! that I put on there for Hubby the other day.

24. What was the last thing you said to someone?
"I'll be up when you get home" is what I said to Hubby when he just called me from his girlfriend's house.

25. If you had to choose between a million bucks or to be able to go back in time and fix all your mistakes which would you choose?
I'd take the million. I'm thankful that so far I've not done too many regrettable things in my life. Hey, now that's a pretty good feeling.

Feel free to add to your blog, tell 'em Manic Mom sent ya! Thanks for playing!
