Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid. She's Listing Again....

So sorry that you can not see the lovely Vera Wang original I am wearing in this photo...it was magnifique'!
Another list from our Gretchen...and you all know how much I love lists. I realize how much you have to beg me to do one...I so seldom do. I know you are all out there pleading with me to finally do a list! Okay, so you are actually pleading with me to STOP doing lists but I hear what I want to hear. Hmpf. 1. Where is your mobile phone? I do believe it is in my purse...at least I think so. Hmm...let's look. Yup. There it is. On the counter. Not the purse. Thanks for the heads up! 2. Relationship? Well, thank you for asking but I must tell you I am married to a pretty nice guy. It was sweet of you to ask though...oh. Not what you meant huh...um...sorry. 3. Your hair? Spiky, blond, won't hold a curl with new gray strands popping in everyday! How can that be? I am only a child! Really! 4. Work? Why yes...laundry, dust, garden, weed the yard, iron, clean the bathroom, sweep out the garage, decorate, vacuum, cook, clean the kitchen, do the dishes, wash the car, volunteer at several places, drive my nephew from pre-school to his sitters every day, pick up Grace at school every day, help with homework, help my Mom with errands, walk the dog...huh? Oh..you were asking about ME, not Bill...okay. Me? Work? Nah...I am only a stay at home Mom. We just lounge around and eat bon bons and blog all day. OH puleeze, you do not believe that now do you? I really don't LIKE bon bons...I much prefer chips and salsa when I lounge. 5. Your sister(s)? Are you trying to tell me something? Hmm...I don't think I have a sister. I have Lisa, my very sweet, very pretty sister *in law*...does that count? I have a brother that is pretty good looking and manly like...he can't be confused with a sister can he? Oh, I am so confused... 6. Your favorite thing? Of all??? Now, how can I possibly choose one thing? Impossible. So many to choose from...raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens. Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens. And pedicures. I think that Rodgers and Hammerstein forgot to add pedicures. Silly men. 7. Your dream last night? Bill had bought an old house and was trying to remodel it on his own. On second thought, this was no dream, this was a NIGHTMARE!!! Then I was at the Oscars with Brian Dennehy in a stunning Vera Wang. Bill wanted to come but he was remodeling... 8. Your favorite drink? Coca Cola over crushed ice. 9. Your dream car? I really don't have a dream car I guess...but if I could, I would have a small SUV now. In blue. With satellite radio. Designed by Vera Wang. 10. The room you’re in? Kitchen. I wish I could say bathroom, in my claw foot tub surrounded by bubbles. But I do not have a claw foot tub or bubbles...and I am in the kitchen. I know. Boring. 11. Your shoes? Shoes? I am supposed to be wearing shoes? Is this a formal list? No shoes, no list service? 12. Your fears? Fire...yup. I spent too many years with my Dad as a fire fighter. I am afraid of a fire in my home. Terrifies me. And yes, we do have one of those ladders that hides under the bed. Dan has it upstairs and knows how to get himself and his sister out. Me? I will jump out and bounce... 13. What do you want to be in 10 years? Retired from all my lounging and chips and salsa eating. It is so wearing. Nah...I just want to be a highly acclaimed character actress with 2 Oscars. Or, living here at Rabbit Run with Bill and Grace, entertaining my son and his wife and their 2.3 children. Kids love to polish Oscars... 14. Who did you hang out with this weekend? The whole family and my buddy T. 15. What are you not good at? Here we go again...taunting me about Math. Okay, rub it in. I am lousy at Math. I need my fingers to count to 5. Or 10. Add the toes if you go any higher. 16. Muffin? She was one of the sweetest doggies. My parents found her on their porch one rainy morning...she moved in and lived with my family for years. The best disposition in the world and so loving. I still miss her. Okay, I know you meant to eat but that is what came into my head! 17. Wish list items? I want to hear my nephew Brady talk! I want world peace desperately. I want Brian Dennehy to win another major award..he can even have one of my Oscars. I want Bill to be safe when he runs his 4th Air Force Marathon next Saturday. I want Bill and I to celebrate our 82nd wedding anniversary. I want my kids and their families there with us when we do. I want a pedicure. My needs are simple and few. Oscars for everyone! 18. Where you grew up? Dayton, Ohio 19. The last thing you did? Turned on the lap top and began to type...well, you said the LAST thing didn't you? 20. What are you wearing? Sweats and a T shirt. 21. What are you not wearing? My Vera Wang gown. 22. Your pet? 1 doggie, 2 kitties and one husband. 23. Your computer? Lap top, hand me down from my son, fun. 24. Your life? Busy, rich, full and happy & silly, most of the time. 25. Your mood? Calm and serene...it is quiet and just about bed time when I will don my Vera Wang jammies. 26. Missing? Half of my hearing in one ear, my youthful figure and any real semblance of propriety. 27. What are you thinking about? Whether I should have some chips and salsa before bed...I may lounge while I eat them. Lounge before bed...it is what all the SAHMommies like to do don'tcha know. 28. Your car? Odyssey Van. NOT designed by Vera Wang. 29. Your kitchen? Clean, with the aroma of home made pizza lingering. 30. Your summer? Vanished in a cloudburst of rain and a sweet Northern wind. 31. Your favorite color? Blue, blue, blue and blue. And periwinkle blue. 32. Last time you laughed? About 5 minutes ago when I read the comment our Kari left on my blog! She is a hoot. 33. Last time you cried? Today, watching how happy my nephew was to see Thomas...I am a huge lump of marshmallow. 34. School? K-17. Grace refers to college and after this way...what grade was that? Oh, I was in 15th grade. 35. Love? God,my husband, my family, my pets, my friends, my home, traveling, Brian Dennehy and pedicures. Oh yes, and that Vera Wang gown I wore at the Oscars...

It is nice to read your answers and learn a bit more about you.

Your blog is so interesting and different! I was just listening to your song list while catching up on some of your old posts and "How much is that doggie in the window" made me smile. Brings back memories of my younger days.

Thanks for visiting me too.

Jen said...

I know Vera Wang, ROFLMAO!

Oh, wow, #7--I keep dreaming I have a baby. It's always a boy. Thanks, but I'm 51 and already have 3 boys and a girl. Does that make these dreams nightmares?
Or is it a menopause thing?
I love your answer to #4! I'd like to reply (with dripping sarcasm): work? L'il ole me? No, I just sit around all day and eat bonbons while I watch the Food Network!

Susie said...

Hi Mz Susie Q!
I'm trying to catch up with my blogging buddies. This list reminds me a bit more why I think of you as one of the sweetest in blogland. I've missed visiting.
(Funny how you said you'd like 82 anniversaries with your Bill, check out my post today!)

Kari said...

Oh you're so funny. I would love a pedicure, too. Except I'm too embarrassed for anyone to actually see my feet, much less touch them. I could scrape paint off a wall with these puppies. But anywho---I hope Bill runs a great marathon Saturday. My husband works for 10th Air Force. But he won't be running any marathon. He only runs if I chase him. And I'm gettin' way too chunky to be doing a whole lotta chasin' these days.
Now here's a thought - just take a moment to mull it over... Hows about we (as in, you and me)write the most magnificent (is that even spelled right?) movie screen play ever written just for that hottie, Dennehy, to star in so he can win his Oscar (and, you know...we get one, too, since we wrote the darn thing). That way, you get your Vera Wang gown out of mothballs, I get my sweaty self out of Texas (for the awards show, duh) and we all end up happy, happy, happy. Sound like a plan? Good. Now what exactly IS a screen play and what does one look like? And how does one write one?......

T*mmy said...

OK...here is a dim and silly question...why do you call meme's lists??

And thanks for reminding me...I do need to get one of those fire ladders...I've laid in bed and thought if something happens I'll just jump to the neighbors roof, but I would probably miss...smoke inhalation and all......
:}

PEA said...

Sue, only you could make such a long list so interesting that we can't help but keep reading until the end! LOL As for that picture of you and Brian...surprised you didn't have Vera Wang herself on the other side of you!! hehe Oh if only Brian knew what a fan he has in you....hmmmm, maybe it would be best if he doesn't know! LOL xoxo

Andi said...

You're such a hoot Miss Susie Q!!! Love your list...and that picture of you with the handsome man...you in your Vera Wang!!!

Gretchen said...

Oh, yes...pedicures. You had me at pedicures. :) Love your answers, Sue. And...thank you for the loving 9/11 tribute. I can't think of any way to say it that even comes close to your eloquence. God bless. xxxooogretchen
