Meet Me on Monday

Blogging is a funny thing...we tell our most intimate thoughts for all to read and yet most of the time I find myself sitting and wondering, "who is this person!?" I know them...but yet I don't know them! I want to know who the person is behind all those words so I thought of a great way for all of us to "meet" each other!

Every Sunday Never Growing Old will post five get to know you questions that you can copy and paste into your own Monday post and we can all learn a little more about each and every one of us!!

Java will add a linky so we can follow who participates and get to know them better!! Be sure to link the POST and not just your whole blog!!

Meet Me On Monday


1. What is your favorite yogurt flavor?

2. Ankle or knee socks? and on the same theme, white socks or coloured??

3. How is the weather right now?

4. Are you a fast typer?

5. Red or White Wine?


1. What is your favorite yogurt flavor?

Hmmm...  Don't really have a stand out favorite, but I'm a big fan of blueberry and peach.  Of course, I like plain with fresh fruit and granola, best, but don't buy it as often as I'd like.

2. Ankle or knee socks? and on the same theme, white socks or coloured??

I'm stuck on crew socks.  Specifically Hanes crew socks.  Color does not matter.  White, black, grey.  One day, I got tired of matching socks, so I got rid of ALL my socks and bought the same brand.  Guess what?  They all match now.  My sister told me a few weeks ago that ankle socks were the current fashion.  I wasn't in a caring mood.  I wear what I wear, so there.  :-p

3. How is the weather right now?

Nice... It's a beautiful night here in East Texas:

4. Are you a fast typer?

I hunt and peck as fast as I can.  I'm an average typer.  Someday, I'll learn to keep all my fingers on the right keys, but I have to type as part of my job, so it's hard to make the transition.  I think I do ok, considering.

5. Red or White Wine?

No preference...  I haven't drank enough wine, I suppose.  Perhaps if Kimmie introduced me to some good wines?

Short on sleep, long on happy!

So, I was sulking most of the week because it turns out the Mr. Gore was not willing to assist in our efforts to drive back Winter.  Apparently he gets paid a ridiculous amount of money to make public appearances.  He advised me that the cost to bring him into play was a sum which was "unattainable in my lifetime."  He went on to state that we should not be driving such a distance, in any case, due to the carbon emmissions such a lengthy drive would cause.  When I asked if we could instead borrow his private jet he hung up on me.  The man has no sense of humor, apparently.

So, that left me with no options, and Kimmie was trapped until we were finally able to pull off a late night rescue.  This involved missing quite a bit of sleep...

...a lengthy drive to rendevous at a Whataburger in Paris (Texas, not France)...

...and praying that our van wouldn't throw off an already squeaky serpentine belt.

In the end, I finally got my Kimmie back home safe and sound. 

I am worlds happier, but MAN am I tired.

Love you Kimmie, welcome home.

You and me? We're not friends anymore.

So, it's looking like Kimmie might be snowed in tomorrow...

I've decided that Old Man Winter and I are not currently on speaking terms.  If you happen to see him, you can tell him that I won't be speaking with him or sharing my jello until he agrees to let my Kimmie come home.  Don't get me wrong.  I love snow almost as much as I love Christmas, but this is taking it a little too far for my liking.  I really thought we were friends, but he has crossed the line.

Of course you know, this means WAR.  I will be striking back at winter at my earliest convenience.  My plan is simple.  Global Warming.  That's right, I will assault Old Man Winter with the only power I know to be stronger:  

That's right... Mr. Al Gore!  

Gore's power to produce hot air remains unrivaled in the universe.  If anyone can save my Kimmie from the dreaded winter onslaught, it's YOU, Mr. Gore!  Together, we will engage Winter in an unprecedented battle royale.  Old Man Winter will never know what hit him.


Faced with the might of Gore's glory, I expect Winter will reconsider his path, perhaps turning his foul, frozen breath on more familiar territory, such as Windsor, Ontario, or Fargo, North Dakota.

I have a FOLLOWER!!  Hello, follower!  You're such a cute wittle follower!  Awe, wook at da wittle follower, followin' me...  Wha's your name, hmm?  Wha's your -    ...Oh, it's Kimmie!  HI, KIMMIE!

Work in progress

I spent the last few days working on something for my fiancĂ©e, Kimmie.  It's really a multi-faceted something, but it all goes together.  I can't really discuss it here, because she may end up reading this and I want her to see it before hearing about it.  I'm hoping it will make her happy.  She's been in Oklahoma these last few days visiting family and she won't be back until Saturday or Sunday.  Unless, of course, mother nature decides to be cruel and snow them in.  Then I would expect to see her  a little after the first spring thaw. 

...I miss her so.
