Simple But Good

I'm freakin' out a little here. Asthmagirl tagged me with a meme. I just recently did a meme (thank you to all who played along!). But I could swear that someone else recently tagged me and I've forgotten who or what. If you did and are reading this, please remind me? Or maybe I'm just going nuts? Yeah. That's clearly it.

Today's meme, courtesy my favorite apple tree, is simple, simple, simple. So I'm taggin' on this one. Look out, friends. Prepare yourselves to answer the interesting stuff which I'm about to reveal and answer myself. Think long. Think hard. It'll give your brain something to do. Quit playing dumb. You know your brain was looking for the extra activity.

  1. My perfect food: Why is this always such a difficult question for me to answer? I answer it differently every time! The last thing I ate was chocolate cake, so it's tempting to answer "Chocolate cake", since this one was especially yummy (Maybelline added chocolate chips to the batter). But I really don't care for cake, as a rule. I'm going to randomly choose one of my stand-by favorites ... creamed spinach. Yes. I'm sticking with that answer.
  2. Favorite colors: One of AG's answers tempts me here. She loves lavender, which is gorgeous. But I have to say butter yellow and magenta. Magenta isn't really a favorite color, but it is an inside joke between my Hunny and myself (having to do with a particular item of clothing from our newlywed days), so I'm sticking with THAT answer. Oh, and sorry mom. You pretend you didn't just read that.
  3. Hair: Auburn. Final answer. Really. Alright already! I have ALWAYS been a redhead! The hair on my arms (still to be found in copious amounts) is currently copper colored, as is the hair on my legs. So why can't the hair on my head be red as well? It is! It is!
  4. DVD I recently saw: Let's see ... I watched part of the first episode of Firefly a month or so ago. The last full DVD? Geez. I wanna say it was Frequency sometime around Christmas.
  5. Guilty TV pleasure: My guilty pleasure is simply that I no longer watch TV. Don't worry. I'm sure it's just a phase I'm going through. It will pass, people. Move along.
  6. If I were a tree, I would be a(n): My initial response is a sweetgum. I love the way the leaves smell, and it's fun throwing those prickly balls at people. But I love so many trees! My favorite, though, is the pecan tree. There were two in our backyard growing up. I love the uniformity of the leaves, the size and height, the pecans! And I LOVE driving past a grove of them, seeing their size, knowing what waits at harvest. Mmmm. Pecans. I could live without the tent worms though. Yeah, definitely.
So that's it. Nothing more to see. Wait! No. There's the tagging. First, most importantly, is Sports Mama! Hahahahahaha!!! She knows why. Then there's Poltzie, who needs something to do with herself now that she's temporarily unemployed. And I want to know what kind of tree is struggling to get out her belly. It's some kind of fruit tree, I'm sure of it. And last, but never, ever least, Coffee Bean, if only because, in the insanity of the storm and the lack of sleep and the oversleeping, I forgot the Adderall XR and am nursing a giant mug of coffee to catch up from yesterday. But I like her. She's pretty. And nice. And dang it! I want to know what tree she'd be!

Until I write again ...

Woot! Great answers! I love that you gave up chocolate cake for spinach!
PS~ That was some huge hail!

Coffee Bean said...

Aw, thanks Flea! I was actually stressing about what to write about this morning. I'm in a serious mood but didn't want to do another serious post... but couldn't quite think of something funny. I'll just do this meme!

I need to get everyone out of the door and then I'll get to it. And... no, not the cacoa tree. But I am going to have some coffee.

Btw, I don't know if I told you before or if you caught it on the old blog... but I also homeschooled for 9 years and have spend some time as a substitute teacher (that was pre-homeschooling though). And I believe we also wear a size 11 shoe... LOL!

Hey - I don't watch tv anymore either! Gave it up almost two years ago.

I love red hair - I keep trying to dye mine a reddish color, but then my big old brown eyebrows just stick out...and I'm too nervous to try dye-ing (sp?) my eyebrows.

Mental P Mama said...

Mmmm. Creamed spinach and pecans. I approve!

Jan Parrish said...

LOL. Good answers. I am way behind on my Meme's. I'll get to it - I promise. :)

Shirley said...

Good answers. And everyone should have an inside joke with the one they love. When I had a husband, ours had to do with a dime. I'll not explain.

Karen Deborah said...

aren't ya going to ask the cows?

Karen Deborah said...

OK in real life you would not give up chocolate for spinach, if you did we need to come and take you away, with the men in little white coats.

Tammy said...

I'm horrible for forgetting meme's that I've been tagged with. I do it all the time. I'm a bad blogger. :o(

Flea said...

If I had to choose between chocolate cake and creamed spinach, and I had not yet eaten, I'd choose the creamed spinach. Really! And I'm going to think about trying toasted pecans in the creamed spinach. While wearing my size 11's. :)

The Sports Mama said...

Seriously? Did you seriously tag me? Huh. And here I thought we were friends....

Kidding... you know I adore you in a non-stalkerish bloggy sort of way, right? :)

I'll probably do it. 'Cuz I'm a pushover like that. :)
