5 Question Friday!

Good Morning, Friends!  It’s the weekend!  You can all do your happy dances now.  I know I am!  Alrighty, on with the 5 question Friday fun.  Once again thanks to Mama M. for letting us link up.

1. How long did it take for you to find your wedding dress? (Wedding dress pics anyone?)
     Well, one day Ms. L and I went to a few shops and looked at some dresses (there was one I particularly liked) but I didn’t have the money to buy any yet so it was mere looking.  Then I went with my Mama, Daddy, My friend Ms. A. and Ms. L.  And the wedding dress gods were on my side that day, because we were there only a few hours and I found my dress.  It fit perfectly and was even the perfect length.  NO alterations necessary!  And to top it all off it was on sale for 200.00!!! Tell me that ain’t the best thing?! 
     My Dad was sooooo funny.  When I tried that one on and liked it he was all, “yeah, it’s nice.  Whatever you want honey”.  THEN when the sales lady said, “Oh the tag is wrong.  It says 500, but this gown was actually just put on sale for 200.  Dad was like, “that’s the one!  Wrap it up.  We’ll take it!” Hahahahaha!!  Of course my Mama was more conscious of my feelings and said, “Ms. T, if this isn’t THE dress we’ll keep looking.”  But it was THE dress.
2. Someone in your general vicinity releases a NASTY smelling fart. Do you say anything or blow it off?

     Most of the time I blow it off.  Unless it’s the Hubs and we’re alone.  Then we joke about it and say ever so loving things like, “oh my word!!  You’re so nasty!  What did you eat?!” Hahaha! 
3. What is the scariest thing that happened to you or scared you recently?

    Ok, see normal people would say things like, “a spider jumped out at me”, or “I saw a snake in the yard”, but not me. ‘Cuz, see I’m a Criminal Minds, Law and Order, The Closer etc. freak.  I love those shows.  However, I’m also paranoid.  These things do not go well together.  If I’ve  learned anything from these shows it’s to NEVER talk to strangers.  And sometimes its best not to even talk to people you know.  Because you think you know someone and then you accept their invitation to dinner and then find yourself locked in their sound proofed basement with LOTS of torture devices.  It happens ALL THE TIME, People!  Don’t believe me?  Watch Criminal Minds, Law and Order, The Closer etc.  You’ll see.  Plus don’t you know those shows are pretty much real life?!
     Ok, so all that to say the scariest thing that has happened to me recently is that I took the kids on a walk yesterday.  We were just strolling along and this guy calls out to us and wants to ask about the neighborhood, because he’s just put in an offer on a house in our area.  I know, that’s not really all that scary, but he was driving a panel van.  A PANEL VAN, people!!!  Come on!  Panel vans are the creepiest vehicle there is!  All the guy would’ve had to do would’ve been to conk me over the head, drag me and my babies into that panel van and no one would ever see us again.  CREEPY!!!  And now you know just how very paranoid I am.  The end.

4. Favorite brand and flavor of ice cream.

     I don’t really have a favorite brand of ice cream.  I’m an equal opportunity ice cream kinda gal.  Flavor wise I’d probably go with the new kind that has chunks of Reese’s cups in it!  Mmmmm!  Ohh or good ol’ chocolate chip cookie dough.  Or maybe some yummy mint chocolate chip!  (Notice a pattern? =)
5. Are you able to sleep well in hotels?
     It depends, is the place clean? Is the bed comfy?  And am I there alone, or is the Hubs with me?  And does the door face outwards, or towards an inside hallway?
     If the place is clean, the bed is comfy and I’m with the Hubs, yes I sleep very well in hotel rooms and it doesn’t matter which way the door faces.  However if I’m alone the door needs to face an inside hallway, the bed needs to be comfy, and the place needs to be clean.  And even with that I may still be uneasy.  Give me a break!  I’ve just gotten comfortable sleeping in my OWN HOUSE without the Hubs being there.  I watch too may shows like Criminal Minds, Law and Order and The Closer etc.  I know right now you’re thinking, “you really need to stop watching that stuff”.  But have you seen them?!  They’re REALLY good, and to be honest yes they're creepy, but they're helpful for instance you can learn life saving tips…. Come on now think about it.  Sure the nightly news will tell you that someone’s been kidnapped, but do they tell you that you should try and talk to your captor and get them to recognize you as a human being rather than an object? NO!  They just give you the facts.  Talk about a creepy thing to watch!  Ok, I’ll stop talking about my crime shows now =).
I hope you all have a great, crime free weekend!!

  1. You're a goof. A paranoid, lovable goof. And if u think ur paranoid after watching those shows, u shd do my job for a few days!!!
    Love ya, sis!

  2. I can go along with your ice cream flavours. I haven't met an ice cream I didn't like.

  3. Sis, that is precisely why I could never do your job. I would have to live in a padded room for the rest of my life.

    Retired, I'm pretty much the same way! I'm a sweets lover for sure!

    Thanks for being great readers!

  4. I just literally LOLed! (technically, I suppose that should be LedOL, right?) Anyway, I am also a member of the Paranoid Criminal Minds Fan Club. My husband is always telling me that I should stop watching it, because I'm pretty convinced there are psychopathic serial killers lurking behind every bush--and that was *before* that show was on the air. I'm not sure I would've stopped to talk to a strange man in a panel van. In fact, in parking lots, I won't park next to any sort of big, enclosed vehicle like that--too easy to just be snagged inside with no one the wiser, and who wants their last minutes of life to be spent at Wal-Mart or something?
