Five Question Friday-24 September 10

Hello, blog buds!  Happy Friday to you.  When you only post a couple of times a week and you follow a meme or blog hop of sorts, it seems like every other post is the same..."Can't believe it's time for Five Question Friday again!" but it is.  Hop over the Mama M's "My Little Life" for the official "rules," link up and original questions.  Here are my answers for this week...(oh, and I did snap a few pics of my birthday cake from yesterday; I'll post them later today.)

1. If you could speak with a different accent, what would it be (i.e Australian, Scottish)?

I love the whole Aussie-accent thing, but I’d go with French-sounds sexy to me. (Okay, maybe I’m misinterpreting the question just a little and am thinking of speaking another language vs. just speaking with the accent now that I think about it.) Of course, the French accent may be unrecognizable coupled with my Tex-Mex Spanglish accent!

2. Can you fall asleep anywhere? (i.e floor, couch, deck)

Yes, I can fall asleep pretty much anywhere-even sitting up in front of my computer like I’m doing now while I’m waiting for PE and Band uniforms to finish washing so kids will have them for school tomorrow.

3. Do you use public restrooms? If so, do you sit on the toilet?

I use public restrooms only when I absolutely have to. I prefer when they have those disposable seat covers, but if not I sometimes sit on my hands—the idea being I can always wash & sanitize my hands immediately after using the public restroom. If it’s really disgusting I’ll cop a squat over the toilet bowl and try not to touch anything with any part of my body.

4. If you were stuck in an elevator for 24 hours, what celebrity would you most want to be stuck with?

Umm…are there hidden/security cameras in the elevator? Let me just play this safe…I’d want to be stuck with Steve Carrell. I LOVE his wacky sense of humor and think he’d do a great job of keeping me entertained enough to stave off a claustrophobic panic attack for 24 hours.

5. Where did you & your significant other go on your 1st date?

My hubs and I met through a mutual friend. My now brother-in-law works for a car dealership and I was in the market for a car after my return from Honduras. So, the hubs (with the encouragement of said mutual friend) volunteered to take me car shopping. One day we left the dealership and headed down the street to Chilis for lunch. We consider that our first “date.” I remember I ordered baked potato soup and a wine cooler. I know the Hubs thought I was up to something, but he quickly learned that that’s how I roll. He was obviously smitten by the thought of having a frugal wife!

That was fun; now I'm done...H ave a wonderful day and a great weekend


  1. Happy birthday my friend! I hope you celebrate all week! It is nice to get to know you through these Friday questions. I think a french accent is neat. I wish I could fall asleep anywhere. I have never been a great sleeper. I hope you have a great weekend my friend!
