Over The Top Meme

Today we ripped this meme off a blogger named Linda at the blog Are We There Yet??. Linda changed the meme a bit and so did we. She states that Sandy of Traveling Bells passed on the meme with a blog award called the Over the Top Award. But, it was probably stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Tracing back our theft's thieves might take some time. Link back to us at Sunday Stealing!

Cheers to all us thieves!
Sunday Stealing: The Over the Top Meme
Part One - Describe:

Your hair?
Getting grayer by the minute.
Your mother?
Heaven.
Your father?
Heaven.
Your favorite food?
It was the Scalloped Potatoes and Ham that I made Thursday night. My Mom's recipe. It was so delicious, so comforting, tasted exactly like my Mom made it. I made a huge tray, definitely enough for leftover lunch on Friday. Our son delivers my dinner to me (I was banned from living room because I wanted to watch Grey's Anatomy instead of the Bears game, what can I say? The Bears suck lately and I didn't want to miss my show and watch yet another bad game.) and he's eating off my plate as he brings it to me. Friday morning I go downstairs and the leftover container was on my laptop. EMPTY. I was livid. I was so looking to more of that comfort food. Anastasia said he had 3 heaping plates Thursday night. Yeah, and whatever he stole off my dinner plate. Grrrrr.
Your dream last night?
Not sure if it was last night or the night before, but my dream was me in an elevator frantically trying to get from the 7th floor to the 9th floor. I have no idea why. It was a short dream.
Your favorite drink?
Regular drink, iced tea. Alcohol, I so seldom drink. A margarita would be good, or a dirty martini.
Your dream/goal?
Staying afloat.
The room are you in?
Living room.
Your hobby?
Blogging.
Your fear?
The F' word. I can't even type it. As a homeowner struggling, it's my greatest fear.
Your TV?
um...it's on. Saturday night tv sucks. We don't have cable or satellite. Just free tv and on Saturday night that means slim pickins.
Your Pets?
Hoping to adopt again soon. I really really want a kitten, but our son is really campaigning for a dog, but I will only agree to a very small breed dog.
Friends?
According to our son, I have no friends. He said it again last night. Don't you love teens? Want mine?
Your life?
I'm here, I'm queer, get used to it. Oh, and by the way, I'm very cool too. Our daughter can't wait to "out" us to new people. She "outed" me to her bowling coach who thinks we're "cool".
Your mood?
Depressed. I really wish Anastasia would hear from the job she interviewed for and get the job. If she doesn't, I don't think we'll have Christmas presents.
If you're missing someone?
My parents.
Your best friend?
My partner, Anastasia.
Part Two - The Where's?
Where do you want to be in 6 years?
Still in this house, living in this great community.
Where were you last night?
um......I'm always here.
Where did you grow up?
Suburb of Milwaukee.
One place that I go to over and over?
The bathroom. Colitis. Overshare!
Your favorite place to eat out?
Gosh, anyplace that's not my kitchen and that I don't have to cook! I wish I had the $$ to go out for sushi. I love sushi.
Wish list items?
Wish list? Like for Christmas? Video games for our son. A bowling ball for our daughter. A Kindle or Sony Reader for Anastasia.
Last time you laughed?
I laugh all the time. In fact in high school a friend once told me that I laughed at everything. To prove her point she told me that she knew she could make me laugh by saying a single word. I was like, no way. The word? "Shoehorn". It wasn't the word that was funny, because "shoehorn" isn't funny...not by itself really. It was the look on her face when she said "shoehorn" that made me bust out laughing. But there you have it...I laugh at anything.
Last time you cried?
Lately...too often. Nuf said.
Part Three - The What's?
Something that you aren't?
Thin.
Last thing you did?
Just got back from grocery shopping.
What are you wearing?
Blue tshirt, sweats, slippers.
Something you're not wearing?
Socks.
Your favorite store?
Fashion Bug, but I never have money to shop there.

I am Harriet said...

Hey Lola.
We couldn't even get the Bears latest disaster down here. My son likes to say the same thing to me- not that they know what the heck they're talking about anyway.
Hope your dreams to come true for you.

Patricia Rockwell said...

My daughter always used to chide me for having "no friends" which made me sad until I realized that I had a lot more than she did. She was probably jealous. Hang in there and keep laughing!

JD at I Do Things said...

Did someone say "sushi"?

I love sushi too. Why must it be so expensive? It's fish and rice, for crying out loud.

A friend suggested I learn how to make it myself, but I'm too lazy. Plus I know it wouldn't be as good.

Lola said...

@ Diane - Yes, it was too good.

@ Harriet - You wouldn't have wanted it. Anastasia watched it and was constantly screaming at the tv. It was bad.

@ Patricia - He's right though.

@ JD - I make my own sushi. The key is to get the right kind of rice. I'm out of the seaweed sheets though, they are hard to get around here. Next time I go to Meijer I'll have to get some. I make California Maki rolls and smoked fish rolls. Nothing raw.

Lin said...

My son once said that to me too and I told him that since I was so freaking busy running after them and doing things for THEM, there left no time for me and my friends. That is what being grown-up is--doing what needs to be done and then having fun. And tell him he's wrong--I am your FRIEND!

Yes, I've seen a meme similar to this one but it's changed just enough that I can do it again! Thanks for all the blog content -after doing a blog post everyday this month, my mind's a little mushy!

Lola said...

@ Lin - You da bomb pally!

@ StaceyC4 - Mush is an excellent term for my brain lately. Thank goodness for memes!
