Ella's Meme

Last week was great. We had our reunion and then on to the lake with family. I'm back and tired. But I didn't want to miss this meme. Thanks, Ella!

1.Name a tender song that can almost make you cry. 

Almost any song if I’m in the mood to cry.

2.  What is your favorite shade of lipstick?  What about nail polish?  If you do not wear lipstick or polish, what do you like or dislike about the shades you see others wear?

I’m pretty much a ‘live and let live’ on this. Most people look fine wearing both. As long as they don’t insist I wear either, we’re good.

Definitely not me!

3.  Name a children's nursery rhyme or song that you loved and to which you remember all the words.

Of course everyone knows ‘You are my Sunshine’ but I still love it and remember Mama and I singing it to one another. I see it’s currently being used in a horror movie and I resent that.

4.  What outfit would you put on in the morning if you wanted to feel happy and well dressed?  Something in which you think you look pretty damn good!

I don’t really have a go to outfit. In the summer, it’s shorts and tee shirt. I’m comfortable and happy. If we’re going out I usually put on something a little nicer.

5.  If you had enough money to buy just one, would it be a cottage by the ocean or a cabin in the mountains?

Definitely the mountains. We’re close to the mountains and we’d use it often. The beach is quite a drive and Nick not wild about the beach for long stretches.

6.  If you are old enough, which one of the Beatles did you have a "thing" for?  If you are not that old, tell us a musician that really did it for you.

No question about this one. George! He is very memorial to me because I had my first sex dream ever about him. I would have thought Paul or John, but it was George who showed up in the dream and I still remember.

7.  Name a smell that you love - could be kitchen, outdoors, person, your choice.

I love smelling the honeysuckle and hyacinth – both smell like spring time.

8.  How often do you defuzz your legs.  Wax, razor, or electric?

I use a razor, but I don’t need to often.

9.  How/why did you choose your blog name? 

That was pretty easy. Nick and I had been more like roommates for a couple of decades, we loved and respected one another, but there was little passion. When I came out to him, twenty-three years into our marriage, everything changed. It was definitely a New Beginning for us. 

10.  What do you like to eat for breakfast?  To drink?  Coffee or tea?

I usually have a sausage biscuit, sometime I throw an egg in. I’ve never liked tea, but I fix a cup of coffee when I head out to start writing for the day.

11.  How many siblings do you have?  Or are you an only child?  Are you the oldest, a middle, or the youngest child?

I have one older sister.

12.  What is your favorite salad dressing?

I like Ranch for dipping – wings, pizza, whatever. But if I’m eating salad, and that’s rarely, I like Thousand Island.

13.  If you could sit next to anyone (alive) on a long plane trip, who would you pick?

I like the simple things in life. I’d probably pick LJ. I get to see Mollie all the time and I only get to see LJ once or twice a year. I do love talking to LJ. I think stars, celebrities in general would intimidate me so I’ll stick with my son.

14.  Have you ever gone shopping just to cheer yourself up?

Not really, shopping’s fine and I often enjoy it. But it’s not my go to for cheering up.

15.  If there is one thing that can make you lose your temper, what would it be?

I rarely lose my temper. My flashes of temper come when Nick snaps at me for no reason – maybe I’ve misheard him or something and he bites my head off. It’s rare but it flies all over me! And even then, no one knows how angry I am but me.

16.  Tell us about the best photograph you have ever had taken.

It’s one of my mom and Dad kissing about two weeks before she passed away.

17.  Have you ever gone skinny-dipping and where?
 Skinny dipping or chunky dunking, what ever, but yes I have and I LOVE it. Mostly in our pool, but once in a lake. It is a wonderful feeling.

You know last year I went to the beach 
with Sunny, Katie, Terps, Ella and Meredith
this may have been some of us. Then 
again, maybe not.

18.  What do you like on your pizza?  What don't you like on your pizza?

Hamburger and bacon are my favorite and I like most meats. I don’t like Canadian bacon, peppers, or pineapple.

I've got to do this meme. George was my favorite too - didn't have a sex dream about him but just thought he was the cutest thing ever.

At 10:14 AM, Blogger Ella said...

Just loved reading your answers, PK. I also cracked up at the "chunky dunking." Without my glasses on, I couldn't tell who was who in the water anyway. Love the idea of everyone visiting your pool! What a party that would be.

Hugs From Ella

It's so nice getting to know you through memes like this. I love the story about your blog name and how this all changed your marriage with Nick. Yay for you two!

At 6:48 PM, Blogger PK said...

That's the best thing about the pool! You are all invited to my pool any time you can get here.

At 6:48 PM, Blogger PK said...

Nick and I do like our night swims.

At 6:50 PM, Blogger PK said...

Thanks, Roz. Both answers are very true. I don't think the word 'skinny' could describe anything I do!

At 6:51 PM, Blogger PK said...

He was a looker!

At 6:52 PM, Blogger PK said...

I don't have enough bedrooms, but I'd love to have everyone at the pool. However, someone else is going to have to cook. I would never think of cooking for all you chefs!

At 6:53 PM, Blogger PK said...

It's so very true! An amazing change.

I'm late again, sorry! This is a great meme and I enjoyed reading your answers. Save a place for me at your pool party!

Well after you reach a certain size...

Very fun meme answers to read, PK!:) Count me in on your pool party! Sounds mighty fine to me.

Loved all of your answers. My fav is the "You Are My Sunshine"one- shame on those writers for messing with your sweet song! LOL! Of course I loved the pic of "us" on the beach too. HA! Many hugs,

<3 Katie
