Excuses, excuses

So, our camera has been broken for several weeks. I know it's no reason not to post, but I feel like it gives me an excuse to put blogging on the back burner. Also, I'm nesting like crazy and trying to clean every square inch of my house. You know, just in case. I received the following material in an email but decided to post it here because I need to post something, even though my last entry was in the same question/answer format. Please forgive the repeat!

1. What time did you get up this morning? 6:00.
2. What was the last film you saw at the cinema? Mission Impossible 3. It's been awhile.
3. What is your favorite TV show? Lost. It's the only one I watch.
4. What did you have for breakfast this morning? Toasted Corn cereal. It’s the Walmart brand of Corn Chex, but cheaper and every bit as good.
5. What is your middle name? Anne.
6. What is your favorite meal? Anything I don't have to cook.
7. What foods do you dislike? Pickles, cottage cheese, black licorice, hot or spicy stuff, melons. Many good fruit salads have been ruined by adding melons. Even if I can avoid them in the salad, their juices still ruin it.
8. Favorite chips? I'm not too big on chips, but possibly Chili cheese Fritos or Sour Cream and Cheddar.
9. What is your favorite CD at the moment? I don't really have one, but my new favorite song is a lullaby I heard on the movie Waitress. I sing it to my kids and they both love it!
10. What kind of car do you drive? Honda Accord.
11. What is your favorite sandwich? Turkey with all the fixins except pickles.
12. What characteristics do you despise? Lying, laziness, not following through. I guess the latter could be attributed to laziness.
13. What are your favorite clothes? Pajama pants and flip flops.
14. If you could go anywhere in the world for a vacation where would you go? Somewhere warm and without kids. I would really love to go to Cancun.
15. Favorite brand of clothing? Um, I’m not sure. I’m not too picky about brands as long as it fits me well.
16. Where would you like to retire? Somewhere warm (but not hot)!
17. Favorite time of day? Bed time and nap time.
18. Where were you born? SLC, UT
19. What is your favorite sport to watch? What's sports?
20. What are your favorite teams? If I could name one I would tell you.
21. Pepsi or Coke? Pepsi.
22. Beavers or ducks? Ducks.
23. Are you a morning person or a night owl? Definitely a morning person. After 9:30 pm I'm pretty much a useless zombie. Not to mention a cranky one.
24. Any new and exciting news you'd like to share? Nah, just really looking forward to receiving the Bush stimulus package money. But really, my sister is coming for a visit on Saturday with her little boy who is Marissa's age. I can't wait!
25. What did you want to be when you were little? First an astronaut, then a reporter.
26. What is your best childhood memory? Playing Barbies and Cabbage Patch Kids with my sister and going on family vacations.
27. Piercing? One hole in my right ear, two in my left. The second hole will not grow over despite the fact that it has been earingless for years.
28. Ever been to Africa? Yes, to Egypt. Yikes!
29. Ever been toilet papering? Yes, but just once in 6th grade.
30. Been in a car accident? Yes.
31. Favorite day of the week? Saturday.
32. Favorite restaurant? I remember loving the Cheesecake Factory. I haven't been there since I was 18 though, so I hope it's not overrated in my mind.
33. Favorite Flowers? It changes. Right now I’d like anything as long as it is brightly colored. Spring can’t come fast enough!
34. Favorite ice cream? Anything with caramel or PB. The more ingredients the better. Vanilla Shamilla.
35. Favorite fast food restaurant? Subway.
36. From whom did you get your last e-mail? Someone from my ward.
37. Which store would you choose to max out your credit card? J Crew or Banana Republic. Or I could really max it out at Gymboree, Children's Place, or Baby Gap. Or I could really, really max it out at a nice furniture store and get new bedroom, kitchen, and living room furniture.
38. Bedtime? Usually 10:00, sometimes 9:30.
39. Who are you most curious about their responses? Everyone.
40. Last person you went to dinner with? Ryan and the kids for my birthday.
41. What are you listening to right now? Complete silence except for the typing of the keyboard. It's heaven!
42. What is your favorite color? Pink.
43. How many tattoos do you have? Zero.
44. Favorite magazine? Kraft Food and Family. It’s free and I use it all the time.
45. Who's your presidential hopeful right now? I was a devoted Mitt-head, so now I don’t really care.

I love reading more about you.

Cheesecake factory is not over-rated at all. Come visit and will go to Chicago and enjoy!

I didn't know you wanted to be an astronaut (did I spell that wrong? Yikes.)! And Cheesecake Factory is delicious. Why didn't I know you don't like pickles or melons? Bad friend. Have fun with Janie Saturday, and make sure SHE takes pics, please! :)
