Nappy Valley Girl tagged me just when I had run out of ideas for a new post. See the end for my tagees, if that's a word.
1. What are your current obsessions?
Trying to keep my head above water. I seem to have been saying that for many years now. It's probably less an obsession and just a way of life.
2. Which item from your wardrobe do you wear most often?
My workout gear because my chiropractor says I have to wear trainers/sneakers and
I'm NOT wearing them with normal clothes.
3. What's for dinner?
No idea. I'm not usually this lax but the only thing I have is pork, and we've had it twice this week already. We have a great corner shop which I use more than I should, so I will wander over there later. Besides, I have to take the Ball & Chain and Mr. Minimal to a baseball game half an hour away, so that B&C can show him how and where to get the bus back should he ever need it. I will leave it till next week to tell Mr. Minimal that he'd better get used to the bus route.
4. Last thing you bought?
Furry dice in the Chicago Cubs (baseball) colours to go in my car! (Unleashing my inner chav!)
5. What are you listening to?
The Wonderpets singing about a baby cow. The 5 year old is off school with suspected conjunctivitis, therefore he's sitting in front of the TV.
6. Favourite kids' film?
Jungle Book. Oldies are the goldies.
7. Favourite holiday spots?
Puerto Rico; London; Copper Mountain, Colorado.
8. What are you reading right now?
I've just abandoned "Freddy and Fredericka" by Mark Helperin as it was becoming too ridiculous. It's about a fictitious Prince and Princess of Wales, thinly disguised (Charles and Di). The character portrayals are quite funny but they are dumped in the USA with no clothing and money, and the whole thing is just making me tense!! When you have my life, you don't need added stress.
9. Four words to describe yourself?
Busy, funny, loyal, and, um, oh yes, forgetful.
10. Guilty pleasure?
Pinot Grigio. Oh, and not getting out of bed at 7am.
11. Who or what can make you laugh until you're weak?
Author Laurie Notaro - The Idiot Girls Club. Check her out.
12. First spring thing?
A lilac bush that's just about to bud. It's still a bit cold here in Chicago.
13. Planning to travel to next?
Copper Mountain, Colorado in June. England and Ibiza (agh!) in August.
14. Best thing you ate and drank recently?
A Marguerilla cocktail at the Rain Forest Cafe last Saturday. It wasn't particularly alcoholic, and a bit too sweet really, but it FELT so decadent.
15. When did you last get tipsy?
I don't really get tipsy. I just fall asleep these days!
16. Favourite ever film?
Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. Not sure why but I used to know and sing all the words with my old mate Drunk Mummy.
17. Care to share some wisdom?
Little kids, little problems; big kids, big problems. Believe me.
18. What new TV shows/programmes are you watching?
BBC America's "Mistresses". It's new over here and I'm hooked even though I know that there's no way in real life that four close friends could have such crazy and dysfunctional lives.
