random mishmosh

The following consists of a few things I felt like posting. I apologize, in advance, for the randomness!

First, Oliver has been missing you all, since his badass feline self has not made an appearance here lately. He's been extra cute these days, just 'cause he misses having his picture taken. See?

Second, one of my all-time favorite fruits:
Gold kiwi! Find them and eat them, if you've never tried them. They are super-sweet, almost honey-like in their fruity/floralness, with none of the acidity of green kiwi. Expensive, but a lovely treat.

Third, a meme stolen from Syn. (Who doesn't love a good meme every now and then?)

1) Last movie you saw in the movie theatre
Body of War

2) What book are you reading?
I'm actually in-between books. I just finished reading A Framework for Understanding Poverty by Ruby K. Payne, and I haven't decided what's on the nightstand next!

3) Favorite board game?

4) Favorite Magazine?
Eating Well

5)Favorite Smell?
A three-way tie: baking things (bread, muffins, cookies, etc.), green things (nature, trees, etc.,) and freshly-showered boyfriend

6) Favorite Sound?
all kinds of music

7)Worst feeling in the world?

8) What is the first thing you think when you wake up?

9)Favorite Fast food place?
About the only place I'll eat is Chipotle, which I think is pretty good.

10) Future childs name?
Don't know

11) Finish this statement... If I had a lot of money I would...
pay off my student loans, travel, start saving for retirement, and donate a helluva lot more to organizations that need it than I'm able to do right now.

12) Do you Drive fast?
Not really, when I drive, which is rare. (I don't have a car!)

13) Do you sleep with a stuffed animal?
I did when I was little, but not any more.

14) Storms... cool or scarey

15) What was your first car?
1993 Chevy Blazer S10

16) Favorite drink?
Coffee, first thing in the morning, water throughout the day, and herbal tea before bed.

17) Do you eat the stems on broccoli?

18)If you could die your hair any other color.. what would it be?
I've never dyed my hair, and don't plan to! I like it the color that it is.

19) Name all the different cities you have lived in?
Wauwatosa, WI, Minneapolis, MN, and very briefly Roseville, MN

20) Favorite sports to watch

21) One nice thing this person who sent this to you?
Syn seems to have a lot of energy!

22) Whats under your bed?
A lot of cat fur fluffballs, and a flat plastic box of wrapping paper and other gift-giving supplies.

23) Would you like to be born again as yourself?
Uuuh . . . meaning, would I like a second try at my life? Probably not.

24) Morning person or night owl?
Both, depending on the day.

25)Over easy or sunny side up
Poached, thank you very much!

26)Favorite place to relax...
A tie between the woods and my couch. (My couch in the woods . . . now that would be something!)

27) Favorite Ice cream flavor?
Too many!

Oliver is such a cutie!!

Sarah said...

Wait your cat went missing? Or just like mia from your blog. I hope the second, I always hate when animals go missing, well that's cause I freak out in general. If he is missing, Ill be thinking of him!

And thanks for the recommendations. I havent heard of Sarah Kramer, but do have 1 of Dreena's cookbooks, what's your favorite of hers? I am planning on spending a good 50 bucks on cookbooks, I have Isa's but her recipes tend to take much time that I don't have while in school. So I better get some easy cooking.

Sarah, he's not missing for real -- just hasn't had his picture on the blog in a while. Thanks for your concern, though!

Oliver is adorable! I have never seen a golden kiwi, but I love regular kiwi so I will keep an eye out. Thanks!

Hi Oliver! What a cutie! I love that second picture, he looks like he was so tired he just plopped down right where he was!

Gold kiwi! Intriguing. I love kiwi, but have never seen them. I assume with your description that they aren't as tart as green kiwi. I'm keeping my eye out for these.

Ooooh, these Meme's are a fun way to learn about your favorite blogger buddies. Scrabble is probably my favorite board game too! It is only rivaled by chess.

And #11, right on sister, I completely agree!

I don't have a car either! To be honest with you, when I see all those people at the gas station, I feel FREE! I can get around on my own accord, it's a great feeling.

And storms are super cool.

I think you and I have a lot in common!

Oliver is too cute! It almost makes up for his mischievous nature, right?!

I love the new look/layout/colors of your blog!


Anna said...

Sarah said...

haha, i read that way too literal. I get it now, after reading it through once again. Whew! All better. Btw, those apple crisp bars look delish.
