Just For Fun (and because I am bored out of my gourd)

On reading Mandy's blog this morning I decided to rise to her challenge and take the quiz on my own blog. For something to do and hopefully something interesting for you to read about that doesn't have a thing to to with cervical measurements! If you feel so inspired to do so yourself.... please do. Oh, but I insist.

1.Grab the book nearest to you, turn on page 18 and find line 4.
LOL the bedrest book has a blank page on 18 because it is in between chapters! Let's try Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck. "...water snake slipped along on the pool, its head..."

2.Stretch your left arm out as far as you can.& catch air?
No. I caught my couch. Surprised?

3.What is the last thing you watched on TV?
American Idol on Wednesday night. I am very pleased with the top 2, as Katherine and Taylor are both great.

4.Without looking, guess what time it is?
12 noon

5.Now look at the clock, what is the actual time?
12:04... I only knew it was close because I had looked at the clock when David called to see if I had eaten lunch yet. I haven't and I am HUNGRY.

6.With the exception of the computer, what can you hear?
Lots of cars driving by and my tummy growling.

7.When did you last step outside? What were you doing?
Just a minute ago to get the mail. Don't worry it is right outside on the porch. And it smells heavenly out there. After being hot all week it has that fresh smell like it's going to rain.

8.Before you started this survey, what did you look at?
My fridge that needs to be shoveled out.

9.What are you wearing?
Sorry to disappoint, but it is not an extra-large drawn-on men's t-shirt with vents cut into the side... I am wearing light blue capris with flowers on them and a light blue t-shirt with a v neck and a bit of a tie that's like a bow, but then not so much like a bow.

10.When did you last laugh?
This morning reading Amalah's blog entry. To funny! If you like to avoid a smattering of profanities (OK more profanities than I realized originally), don't read it.

11.What is on the walls of the room you are in?
A couple of pictures of nature scenes. Living room.

12.Seen anything weird lately?
I don't know. Does this count???

13.What do you think of this quiz?
It's alright and certainly keeping me busy for a few minutes.

14.What is the last film you saw?
A movie from the 90's called The Thirteenth Floor. It's an interesting Sci-Fi, but the plot had me thinking too hard before bed and I was wired for half the night and kept having dreams like I was part of the movie or something.

15.If you became a multimillionaire overnight, what would you buy?
Definitely a house and a couple cars for us. I would adopt a couple kids internationally. Other than that I don't know. Maybe some expensive shoes and a cute little handbag.

16.Tell me something about you that I don't know.
I still watch (gasp!) some movies on VHS. But I do use a cordless remote for that.

17.If you could change one thing about the world, regardless of guilt or politics, what would you do?
Babies would never die.

18.Do you like to Dance?
Oh yeah, baby. Do the funky chicken.

19.Imagine your first child is a girl. What do you call her?
My first two children were girls. Our baby in Heaven is Kaily Beth and the baby in my belly is Dorothy Grace

20.Imagine your first child is a boy. What do you call him?
David Bennett

21.Would you ever consider living abroad?
Yes! I love to travel!

22.What do you want GOD to say to you when you reach the pearly gates?
"Welcome home... I see you found your key!"

Thanks for doing that. Too funny! That picture of something weird is very scary looking. Thanks for making me laugh. Going to get something to eat now, I'm hungry too :)

P.S. Still waiting for the decorated tshirt picture. Don't dissapoint me now :)

KMW said...

You're doing great--keeping your sense of humour and honestly talking about your feelings. I know that I felt a bit of relief at 24 weeks, and I hope you will too. Keep it up!

Mom said...

LOL. LOL. LOL. This is really funny, Beck!

Your sense of humor is a lot like Grandma's. She would think this is funny, too. The picture. OH MY GOSH! I love the 'I see you found your key'!

Hopefully your contractions are calming down a bit. I hope you don't mind if I come over in the morning? I will be there whether you do or not. The fridge and I have a date I think....
