1. What is your current favorite television show?
Big Brother. It’s total trash TV, but there’s just something spectacular about this show. If you’ve never seen the show, the basic premise is that a bunch of strangers move into a house where they’re secluded from the outside world – no TV’s, no cell phones, no radio, no books. Every week, there’s a competition for a new Head of Household, who then has to put up 2 people for eviction. There’s a lot of gameplay involved, as well as some spectacular cat fights and yelling matches. There are people you absolutely hate, and people you just fall completely in love with. This season, my favorites are Ragan, Lane, and Britney.
The show is amazing. If you’ve never seen the show, you’re definitely missing out!
2. Apple juice or orange juice?
Orange juice, no question. Apple juice is just plain nasty! Plus, OJ is good for your immune system!
3. It’s Shark Week on Discovery Channel. Do you watch? Why or why not?
No, I don’t. I never understood the big deal, or why I want to watch a week full of shows centered around sharks. Sharks don’t interest me that much.
4. What are the non-blog websites that you visit regularly?
5. What is your favorite way to prepare green beans? Asparagus? Potatoes? Carrots?
I don’t cook asparagus or carrots so we can just throw those off.
I’ll admit that I don’t like fresh green beans. Canned green beans just taste so much better to me, and I like them with some squirts of butter & pepper, cooked in a pan on the stove.
I love potatoes. Mashed potatoes and new potatoes are my favorites. I make mashed potatoes just any old way, nothing special about it. With the new potatoes, I cut up the potato in large squares and put as much as I want in a bowl. Then, I pour in some olive oil and sprinkle some basil which I stir together until my hand gets tired. After that, I just arrange it all on a baking sheet, put it in the oven at 375, and wait until they’re golden brown. So flippin’ delicious. My favorite.
6. What is your favorite flower?
7. How do you feel about handkerchiefs?
Uh…two thumbs up? I don’t really have an opinion. They have their uses.
8. If you could only shop at 3 stores for the rest of your life, what would they be? (You probably should include a grocery store.)
Target for all my clothing and household and personal care needs. Publix for my grocery needs (and because I can’t go a week without getting one of their subs). And Ikea for my decorating needs. Perfect!
9. If you could only use wine for one purpose for the rest of your life, which would you choose? To cook with or to drink?
Hm…well, I don’t cook with wine and I don’t drink wine so this is hard for me. I guess I would choose to drink it, because I’m hoping my palate will become sophisticated enough to actually enjoy a glass of wine. So far, it’s not happening.
10. What’s your bedtime?
Ideally, 9:30pm, but I usually never make it to bed before 11. I do need to get on a more normal sleeping schedule when I go back to school in 4 weeks. Right now, my afternoon naps take care of my sleep needs, but it’ll be back to the grind soon!
