Friend Makin' Monday - 10/6

Happy Monday!  I've been slacking the last few weeks - I started the posts, then life happened and I'd forget to finish.  

Nothing much going on - working on my Halloween display when I can and I took the family on a Cemetery walk this weekend.  We didn't make it to the tea, where they served foods that were traditional at a Victorian-era wake, but we went thru the Crocker House museum where they had it done up as a house of mourning - mirror covered, a real coffin in the parlor, windows darkened, porch draped in black, etc.  The volunteers explained all the customs & beliefs and was really interesting.  Then we got on a bus to the cemetery and they had 6 people there as reenactors, they stood next to a headstone of some local person and told their story.  That was really neat since they were just average people with average lives.  They were all excellent story-tellers!  Sunday we went to visit Mom for a while.  


Happy Monday everyone.

If you’ve taken part in Friend Makin Mondays before then you are familiar with the rules. If you’re new, please take a moment to answer this week’s question on your own blog then add your link in the comments section here so we can all see your FMM questions and answers. Please invite your blog readers to add their links here too so everyone has to opportunity to be seen. The idea is to connect with other awesome bloggers so take a moment to read and comment on a couple of other posts.

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

1. If you had to be allergic to something, what would it be?  I'll stick with what I am allergic to - sulfa.  It's a type of penicillin that they gave me when I had mono, many moons ago.  It made me break out into hives when I went out in the sun!  So I'd choose that since there are other medications available.

2. If you sat next to Jesus on a bus, what would you talk about?  What his private life was like, as a kid / teenager.

3. If money and time were no object, what would you be doing right now?  I'd be at home working on getting my Halloween stuff out!

4. If you had one day to live over again, what day would that be?   I'd go with my wedding day, too.  They only thing I'd change is NOT wearing a corset - those things are torture!  But it was the best day of my life & I smiled like an idiot all day!

5. If you could eat your favorite food right now, what would it be?  The answer could be different on other days / times but today is a chocolate chip cookie skillet from Chili's.  They make it in a min-cast iron skillet and put a scoop of ice cream and drizzle of chocolate on it.

6. If you could learn any skill, what would it be?   Hmm, some mad woodworking skills would be cool.  

7. If you were sent to live on a space station for three months, and could only take three personal items, what would they be?  My Kindle with approximately 7000 books pre-loaded on it.  My iPod with tons of music pre-loaded (both of these with batteries that don't run out!)  and a photo album of my family. 

8. If you could buy a car right now (money no object) what would it be?  I'm pretty happy with my 2008 Saturn Vue - I've only had it about 2 months.  But to be totally outrageous, it would be anything that the guys on Top Gear test & review.  So some fancy foreign car, like a Buggati Veyron or something like that.

9. What’s your favorite cartoon character and why?  Kermit the frog isn't really a cartoon character, so it would have to be either Popeye or Bugs Bunny.  Kermit just rocks.  Popeye & Bugs always entertained me to no end, tough & funny & lovable.

10. Does your name have a special meaning or were you named after someone special?  I'm pretty sure my name is one Dad just came up with.  But check out how weird he was....His name was James Curtis.  Half brother was Curtis James.  Brothers are John James and Terry Curtis.  (nephews have a variation of his names, also!)  then us girls are Laura Lee, Linda Bea and Lisa Marie. All start with L end with A and rhyme.  But Lee is after Gpa, Bea is after Gma and Marie is after Mom (Mary).  So yeah, we're special!

Thanks Tyra for the questions, these were fun to answer. Now it’s time to go answer these questions on your blog and come back here and post the link to your answers.

Have a great day!!
