10 Things

LittleMansMom tagged me for this meme. Since I can't think of a topic on my own, this works out nicely.

“Tell us/me/the world 10 interesting/random/quirky/normal/silly things about yourself … things you’re looking forward to, things about you personally, whatever you want.”

1. I'm so glad my girls are home! Yes, I enjoyed my time alone, but there's nothing like the hugs and kisses I got when the girls and I were together again.

2. I love my recurring lunches. C. and I go to Porto's once a month, S. and I go to Acapulco's in Glendale so we can smoke, T. and I go to this local Mexican restaurant that I think is called Don Diego's. We'd first re-dubbed it Don Juan de Marcos in honor of this man:

Then, we started referring to it as Taxos, due to someone's typo in an invite. I prefer to call it Don Juan De Marcos. More than anything, though, I look forward to catching up with my friends.

3. I had the weirdest dream the other night that started in the home of someone I don't particularly like, then became a reunion party, and ended with me in a tank, attempting to do a production number with a whole bunch of sharks. I freaked, got out, and my guilt for not following through woke me up. (I needed to get up anyway.)

4. Every time I see Wicked, I can feel my heart at the end of the first act. It's why I've seen it five times, and am planning the sixth.

5. When I was a SAHM, I decided to try and play all 25000 Freecell games. I think I made it to 1700 or something, but now there are 100,000. I'm thinking of trying again. What a worthwhile life-time goal!

6. I need to update my blogroll. In the past few weeks, I've found some awesome new single mom blog friends! Including Littlemansmom.

7. I don't know why I even attempted to do this "10 things." I've been trying for about 24 hours now, and I have a terrible time trying to find things!

8. I'm on a political hiatus. Pundits are starting to sound more and more like Michael Kohrs on Project Runway, and it's annoying. I've made my decision. Can I just vote already?!?

9. I haven't been paying much attention to the Olympics, either. I get all my Olympic news from my dad and bloggers.

10. I can't wait for Pushing Daisies to come back.

I know, it's all thrilling and exciting. I'm sorry - I really, really suck at these. Kori, Lori, Nat, you're up!

I love these! It's neat getting to know people.

It's nice to "meet" you...

Natalie said...

No more politics, huh? Well, I can't say as I blame you. It's all the same old stuff, different day. He's an elitist, No HE'S an elitist. He's a flip-flopper, no HE's a flip-flopper.

I still enjoy reading Momocrats though.

I think you did a great job

Felicia said...

I'm glad your girls are home. :)
And oh how much do I love Pushing Daisies. I can't beleive we have to wait until October!!!

Kori said...

Holy God in heaven, TEN? I just did 100! :) Actually this gives me something to post over the weekend because I can use the scheduled post thing, which I love for some geeky reason. And so what did I miss, as I don't know what Pushing Daisies is? And is that the restaraunt you ate GUTS at?

Gotta love memes. Too bad your dream wasn't involving Don Juan de Depp eh?

I wish I could fly to LA to see Wicked.

*sigh* All the good theatre I'm missing.

Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting.

Interesting roll of your mind. Aren't random thoughts the real way we think? Kind of like everyday people doing their occasional workout and Olympic athletes.

I could pretend to be Michael Kohrs if I lived abroad, then I could do the mail-in thing, but that is totally ignored anyway. Maybe then my vote would be like Tim's, I just get to talk but not decide. Yes, that sounds right.

I love these! I love learning more about my bloggy gals. And it seems like everyone is doing them right now.

I need to update my blog roll, too. BADLY.

littlemansmom said...

Well I think that you have done a fabulous job!

(ps...I'm very glad to have made a new blog-friend in you too ;) )

~Shiona~ said...

These were great! It's always fun to learn more about your blog friends. OT-I've been trying to get that Rot and Sprout button on my blog. Any help would be appreciated. I'm a little technology deficient lol.

Maybe it would liven things up a bit if we did have MK and sourpuss Nina Garcia as political pundits.

Jen of A2eatwrite said...

We're seeing Wicked for the first time in December. I can't wait!!!

hotmamamia said...

I haven't seen Wicked yet but want to. I HAVE seen Mama Mia 6 times (golly, what does that say about me!?)Saw the movie too...

Did you do a 100 post?? I hope I make it to mine....nice to get to know you!

#4 . . . DYING to go. Thinking about heading to a show in October.

Freecell. Yeah, that was me with Tetris. I'm so old school . . .

Hahn at Home said...

I kinda did it. Kinda.

Tranny Head said...

HAHAHA - I'm with you on the pundits thing. Pundits are SOO annoying. Even the ones I agree with. *gag*
