(I can hear the groaning now.) My daughter found this little game somewhere and it looked like fun. So I thought I would play. To show my mental agility. Of course a true test of my mental agility would be if there were like a time limit to complete this game...like ten minutes or something. Rather than however long I want to take. But, it's my game and I'll play it however I want to. (I'm sticking my tongue out, can you tell?)
15 random favorites: books, blogging, taking pictures, my dogs, my children (no, these are not ranked...), outback cheese fries (death on a plate), The Closer, Pancake Pantry, fall weather, purses, fuzzy socks, Beth Moore bible studies, sleeping late, chocolate, good music
14 Favorite Foods: (it feels like we already did this!) Outback cheese fries, chocolate, good pizza, teriyaki chicken, pie, pie, pie, (that would be chocolate, butterscotch and vanilla) pralines and cream ice cream, cream soda, sour jelly bellies, (do you see anything healthy on this list?), krispy kreme doughnuts, baked bbq lays, queso, cheesecake....I could go on...
13 most watched shows: The Closer, The Closer reruns, Law & Order, Extreme Makeover:Home edition, Iron Chef America, Boston Legal, Eli Stone, um...most true crime shows (Josh gets nervous sometimes. No, I am not trying to "learn" things from them.) Ace of Cakes, NCIS, and more reruns. (I know that's not 13 but if you count reruns it probably is.)
12 good bands in my opinion: Uh oh. David Crowder Band, Casting Crowns (the Christmas cd is outstanding!), Mercy Me, Chris Tomlin (who is a one man band!), this is harder than it looks. If you counted each band member as an individual band, we might come up with 12. I have Selah, Travis Cottrell, Chris Tomlin, Casting Crowns, and something else in my CD player right now. Does that count?
11 memories: giving birth...twice, moving into this house, surgery last year, (are these supposed to be good memories or just memories?) going to Amy Grant's house, Josh and Jessi having surgery two weeks apart, going to a LPL event for the first time, going to work at LifeWay, watching Jessi play the lead in the senior play, watching Jonathan dance at last spring's homecoming dance.
10 close friends: Can they really be close if there are ten of them? And would it really be fair if you thought you were a close friend and I didn't name you because I was having a blonde moment? Or if I thought we were close and you didn't like me so much and told me so later and my feelings were totally hurt and I was crushed? Have I written enough to distract you from this question?
9 things you are looking forward to: turning 50 in about 20 years (snort), my baby's wedding (sort of), my baby's graduation (either baby. Sort of), pie Saturday night, Josh's birthday (because it's not mine), Christmas, Thanksgiving, the end of election hoopla, the end of this game.
8 things I wear daily: contacts (that counts as two...one for each eye of course), shirt, wedding ring, a hair thingy, the usual foundational garments that might be found on one who is less than 45, I don't always wear shoes or socks and sometimes I wear a skirt and sometimes I wear pants. Oh, I know...I wear deodorant. And we are all thankful.
7 things that annoy me: political ads, slow computers, movies that don't end happily, poor service, games that are harder than they appear, bad drivers, people who think they are right all the time (because we all know that I am right all the time and if they think they are right then they must be misinformed.)
6 things I touch every day: my toothbrush, my back door, my pillow, my refrigerator, the dog bowls, my cell phone
5 movies I could watch over and over: LOTR, Ratatouille, Apollo 13, Fly Away Home, While You Were Sleeping
4 of your favorite childhood toys: my panda bear with purple corduroy pants, my monkey Matthew, my Miss America Doll, my Smokey the Bear bear
3 people I have kissed: um...that's a little personal...my husband, and both my children.
2 of my favorite songs: peace on earth & while you were sleeping by casting crowns
1 person I could spend the rest of my life with: um...the correct answer would be JOSH. (but I'm thinking Jesus, too.)
Anyway, I am supposed to be watching a movie. Since they've killed the dog and the boyfriend, it's okay for me to go and watch now. Cause it'll be happy happy happy from here on out. Right. (I hear Josh snoring so it can't be all that exciting, huh.)
