Friend Makin' Monday - More Randomness (fashionably late!)

OMG, I've been paying attention to the amount of carbs I consume on a regular day - just out of curiosity's sake......all I have to say is OMG.  Easily 250g yesterday alone!  The Lean Cuisine I had at lunch was 51g.  My usual morning oatmeal with protein powder & Greek yogurt is over 41g.  Wow.  Just Wow.

This week’s random questions come from Tyra at Random Acts of Snark. Thanks Tyra.

1. If you were a vegetable, what vegetable would you be?  How about a potato?  Versatile & tasty.

2. If you woke up tomorrow as an animal, what animal would you choose to be and why?  A cat!  They're lazy and aloof and everything is on their terms and that's exactly how people expect them to be.  My cats are the most spoiled critters ever, but they are very lovable.

3. If you could live anywhere on this planet, and take everything that you love with you, where would you choose to live? Tell the group about your choice.   I've had a chance to travel a bit while in the Navy and see places I normally wouldn't get to (Jebal Ali & Bahrain especially but also Singapore and Hong Kong and Diego Garcia) Lots of cool places, but I'm afraid there's no place like home.  I'd like to stay in Michigan - 4 distinct seasons, no hurricanes or sharks, the views are fantastic.  It's a beautiful place.

4. What favorite color are you and how does being that color make you feel?  I like cobalt blue.  It's calming and makes my eyes look amazing.

5. If you could choose an imaginary friend, who would you choose and why?  I don't know.  I can't remember ever having one.  But I carried my Raggedy Ann doll around with me everywhere - she was my friend for years.  She eventually fell apart and I almost peed myself when I found a very similar one in new condition at the local Salvation Army.  Same embroidered heart on her chest & everything.  

6. If you could sit on a bench in a beautiful woods, who would you like sitting next to you on the bench and why?  My hubby.  We don't even need to talk when we're together.  Just being is enough.
7. Are you sunrise, daylight, twilight, or night? Please share why you picked your time of day?  Sunrise.  The air is fresh & clean, things are just waking up - the sky is spectacular.

8. If you could choose your age forever, what age would you choose and why?  If I was feeling selfish - 23.  I was as free as I could be (being in the Navy) I was in shape and life was good. On the down side, I didn't have my family & experiences under my belt that I have now.

9. If you could be in the movie of your choice, what movie would you choose and what character would you play?   I've mentioned the Man from Snowy River in a past FMM, but I'd like to either be Jessica (the gorgeous long dresses & lots of horseback riding) or Kelly McGillis from Top Gun - even tho women weren't on carriers when that was made.  (doing cool stuff with fighter jets)

10. If you could meet any historical figure, who would you choose and why?  Someone like JFK or John Wayne,   They'd have cool stories to tell about their lives and stuff they've done.


  1. I like the Kelly McGillis part - can we add in doing stuff with fight jet pilots ;)
    Looks like lots of people want to be cats


Leave a note - they make me feel loved!
