Five Question Friday-28 January 2010

Wow, this is actually my third post this week. That's exciting (well, to me anyways since I was getting so lacksadaisical [you English teachers help me out with that one, please!] about posting).  I have tons of quirky little stories and fabulous new recipes rattling around in my coconut, but I just can't seem to get them posted on this blog.  I'll try harder.  Anyway...let's get on with Five Question Friday, a blog hop hosted by Mama M at My Little Life.  This is a fun way to learn more about your blog buds as well as hop around and explore some new blogs you might have overlooked before.  Stop by My Little Life for the official rules and original questions and join the excitement. Here goes...

1. If you had $1,000 to donate to a charity, which would you choose?
Probably Heifer International since it's roughly based on the philosophy that "if you give a man a fish, he eats for a day; if you teach a man to fish he eats for a lifetime."
2. Snow days: Do you welcome them happily or are they a pain in your butt?
Deep in the heart of Texas here we don't get many snow days, so we happily welcome them when we do get them. It's never more than a day or two, and they don't become a "pain in the butt" until we have to tack on extra days at the end of the school year or go to school on a Saturday or whatever to make them up.

3. What talent did you wish you had and why?
I'd love to be able to sew; then I could truly be that much closer to becoming the Proverbs 31 woman. I've always been impressed with people who can look at an outfit and recreate it with or without a pattern.  I was in 4-H as a kid and took home ec in high school, but to this day "make it in one day" patterns still take me a month to complete-LOL!
4. Are you a news, politics or celebrity gossip junkie?
No, no and no. Sometimes I think it would behoove me to pay a little more attention to the news so that I'm not caught totally off guard when someone mentions what's going on in Korea or what a shame about the Arizona victims.  I rarely turn on the TV on my own volition. The hubs just called from work to report that there is a bomb threat at the Cowboys' Stadium where the Super Bowl is supposed to take place next weekend.  That's not good, but I never would've known had he not called. Because it's about 15 minutes from  my house, I suppose I should tune in to the news and see what's happening.  Anybody heading to my neck of the woods for the Big Game?

5. What is your favorite "cocktail"? (Are you a beer person, a kiddie cocktail junkie, or perhaps your more the "Cosmo" kind?! Anything flies...doesn't hafta be alcoholic!)
Wow, ummm...hmmmm I'd have to think long and hard about that. I can say I am NOT a beer person at all, but I do like the sweet and fruity stuff: a combination of pineapple juice, cranberry juice & Vodka works for me! I've never been too big on traditional martinis or bloody marys & such.

Well, that was fun and now I'm done! Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend. Until next time...


  1. We don't have TV...well, we have *A* TV, but it's not hooked up to anything other than DVD players and Xboxes. No cable or dish or anything for us, so we get left in the dark on news too! Sad, but I get my "big news" from Twitter.

    What am I becoming?!! ACK!

  2. I def belive in the motto to teach a man to fish. That is alot of what shepherd's door does. They find families or single moms that live in the bad areas of town. They teach them skills to get jobs and live on their own. Hope you are all having a nice weekend.

  3. here's mine

  4. I'm with you on the snow!! I'm in southern Texas so we NEVER get snow!!!

    Following you back!

  5. I know we probably watch too much TV in our house...I'm especially guilty of watching the news and getting caught up in all the politic drama...I wish our government would be a little more cooperative with one another...I think I should take a lesson from you and step back from it for a while. Oh yes, sewing. My mom knows how to sew quite well, and she has saved a lot of my favorite sweaters and tops in my lifetime. I don't know what I'd do without her! Finally, you can give me a Cranberry/Pineapple coctail any day--my favorite is a Malibu Bay Breeze--so sweet and refreshing! Have a great weekend Eastlyn!
