Saturday 9: What's Cooking? brought to us by Crazy Sam
1. Which meal is the one you cook best?
My lasagna is pretty darn good and so is my chili!!
2. Tell us what you would never eat.
Liver, I hate it. My dad tried to make us eat it once when my brother and I were little. Luckily for us, my friend Lisa was spending the night. She started to cry when she saw what we were going to eat and my dad felt bad and said we could have Spaghetti-O's!!! Go Lisa!!!
3. Is your hometown famous for anything or anybody?
Sweet Corn Days!! The Nugent came once to it, I think. That's when he lived in Hanover-Horton, before he left Michigan for somewhere out west...traitor!!!
4. Can you play a musical instrument?
The flute. I played it from 6th grade to 11th grade then decided that I hated marching band!
5. Tell us about your second ever lover.
He was a Jarhead and that's all you need to know.
6. What is your favorite restaurant?
The Outback. I love the Alice Springs Chicken, the onion, the bread....and the Margarita's!!
7. If it were your call, how often would you make love?
Well, now that the kids are older and don't suck up most of my energy I could go for 4-5 times a week. But it doesn't happen.....that often anyway!
8. What famous person would you like to have dinner with?
Bono....and if he's busy then I would ask Kate Winslet to dinner.
9. Tell us about your job.
I love my job. I work in the library of my son's middle school!! What a perfect place for such a geeky bookworm. I have a small cult following so I feel special most days!!
Today was Be Good to Me Day!!
I have to live vicariously through a few bloggers who participate in Mailbox Monday. This is where they post what books they received in the mail by way of ARC's, mooches, trades, wins, orders etc. I'm pretty sure that I don't want to receive ARC's because I would never finish them on time, I do win a few books here and there, I haven't posted any titles in bookmooch, and I rarely order books any longer, but today I treated myself to not 1 but 3 (holy cow) books!! Can you believe it? Neither can I!!!
Confessions of a Shopaholic- I bought this one at Target for 5.99. My birthday is next month and I want to go see the movie...it looks fun and cute. And of course, I want to read this before I do. Also...I checked this out at the library and had it for 60 days and didn't crack it open....NOT ONCE. I'm very naughty...this way I have no due date looking at me!!
The copy I bought has the movie cover on it and it is more of a trade paperback. I don't care, I saved 8 dollars by buying this one!!
Revolutionary Road- I really, really want to see this movie. I love Kate Winslet and I've heard wonderful things about this book. Another great buy at Target for 5.99!!! My cover is from the movie and a smaller paperback. I love the larger paperback but saving 10 bucks is much better, especially when the same words are in each, right?
Love and Other Natural Disasters- I picked this one up at B&N, because my friend Mellymel at Lit*Chick is hosting a bookclub (and a book giveaway) and this is the book she choose for February. I had a gift card from Christmas, my member card-extra 10% off, and a 15% off coupon. How could I go wrong?
