I'm a Believer

Saturday 9: I'm a Believer

1) This song is about a guy who fell in love when he saw her face. Do you believe in love at first sight?  Absolutely.... it's something cosmic that you can't put your finger on but it doesn't happen for and to everyone.  Some people, I think, have LUST at first sight... but that's a whole other topic.

2) "I'm a Believer" is the best-selling Monkees song. Can you name another one?  Daydream Believer.  Otherwise, not a single one.  I'm not exactly what you'd call a fan.  My friend, Nancy, however, OH EM GEE!  She was THE biggest fan all through our youth.  Luv ya Nancy!

3) On their TV show, the boys competed for the same girl. Have you and a friend ever been romantic rivals?  Not really.  I had several friends that always seemed to date the guys I dumped.  It never was a big deal though.

4) In another episode, the Monkees visited the circus. If you were confident there was a good strong net beneath you, would you walk across the high wire?  With training, yes.  Otherwise, that'd really hurt my feet.  I have some tender tootsies.  Apparently, however, any ole monkey can do it (shut up, I know it's a damn gorilla... go with the joke!)

5) The Monkees show originally aired on Monday nights. Do you have a favorite day of the week?  Not really.  I'm a mom.  They're all pretty much the same.

6) Davy Jones guest starred on an episode of The Brady Bunch. The plot revolved around Marcia's efforts to get him to perform at the prom. Share one of your memories from a school dance.  I hated school dances.  I thought they were stupid.  Unless, of course, this guy was going to ask me... and then, you know... I'd be giddy.  If you don't know who he is... I'm not sure we can be friends.

7) At the height of their popularity, the Monkees' faces and logo appeared on a lot of merchandise, including lunch boxes. Which would you rather have for lunch -- chicken salad, tuna salad or egg salad?  Yes!  I don't have a preference.  I LOVE THEM ALL!  Chicken salad with apples, grapes, pecans, celery.... tuna salad with onion, celery, pickle relish, egg, mustard and apple or egg salad with creamy may and lots of black pepper.  MMmmmmmmmm

8) You have an afternoon all to yourself. Would you rather spend it at the mall, checking out what's new in the stores and people watching, or walking through the forest, observing the birds and trees and leaves?  I would rather be punched in the nose than spend a day at the mall.  Throw me in the forest ANY DAY!

9) Do you have a good memory for names?  No.  I don't have a good memory for anything.  You want to know how good my memory is?  THIS would be my "celebrity" of choice that would be most like me....

Runs with scissors

Time for Five Question Friday!

1. What is on your Summer 2013 bucket list?  I make a Summer Bucket List every year and use that as a guideline for fun.  I use that not as a "must get everything done" list but more as a "hey, here's a way to have some fun" list.  We are in the countdown to school (they start the 15th so it seems a little late to be asking me what's on my bucket list now that summer is pretty much over for us.  I blogged about it here if you were in need of ideas for next year's Bucket List.

2. What is the most useless item on your child's back to school list?  Scissors.  We have like... a GAZILLION pair of scissors.  Seriously, it's ridiculous.  I don't get rid of them because we're in Cub Scouts and there is always a need... but to buy a new pair every.single.year is just dumb.  I didn't, however, have to buy any school supplies.  Our PTO does the whole "kit" which absolves me from any comparison shopping and checking off lists for Diconderosa pencils.

3. What is the one reality TV show that makes no sense to you?  NONE of them make sense to me.  See

4. What is one movie you can watch over and over again? Why?  I watch tons of movies over and over again because I'm a mom...with a DVD player in my van.  I can recite every Pixar movie known to man I think word for word with much enthusiasm.  I need to do voice overs.  I'd rock.

5. What's your favorite back to school tradition?  I don't really have one I guess.... maybe I should start.  I mean, I always take pictures of the boys on their first day of school, but it TRULY sucks that my oldest goes to school on his first day... in a gym uniform.  Seriously?  They totally spoil it for me.  Hey... look at me... in my great athletic shirt.  Bleh.
