Sunday Funday

One of the blog's I read, All-American Jess (Hi, Jess!), participates in this fun little meme (by the way, I have no clue what the hell that-- meme-- means, I've just seen it used to describe, say, Feel Good Friday, and the like, so I assume it fits here. If not, oh well.). It is hosted by MannLand5 and every Sunday, Keely, the writer of the blog, asks random questions. You copy and paste them to your blog, answer them, then join in on the fun by linking up on her blog. So here is this week's fun set of questions:

1. What year did you graduate high school?
2005. I'm a youngin'. But I feel like it was a lot longer than 4.5 years ago. It's amazing how much one grows and changes from 18-22 (23 in less than 2 months, woohoo!).

2. What part of your body do you neglect the most?
All of it. HAHA! Seriously though, I don't take good care of my body. I have headaches almost daily, I am 30-40 pounds over weight, I have back spasms more often than not, and I don't drink enough water or eat enough fruits and vegetables. At least I can admit it, right? I do workout/weight lift as often as I can, though. It's just not often enough...

3. Beach house or Lake house?
Beach house. Duh.

4. Mac or PC?
Once you go Mac, you never go back. I've had my MacBook for a little over a year and I am IN LOVE with it.

5. Did you wear braces?
I am one of the few people my age that can proudly say NO! Never had braces, thank God. My dentist still can't believe it, since I sucked my finger/thumb until I was 11.

6. If you could be one person for a or deceased..who would you be?
Hmm, tough choice. How about a pregnant woman who already has a kid. That way I could experience pregnancy and motherhood all at once ;) God, I'm so obsessed with becoming a mother, it's disgusting.

7. How many times have you moved in your life?
Does moving away for college count? I've lived in two houses with my family in Indiana (the first from birth-8, current house from 8-indefinitely). But, I lived in a new dorm/apartment/house in Ohio all four years of college. And I lived in Hawaii for 4 months. So, depending on how you want to look at it, as few as once, as much as six.

8. Would you rather cook or clean?
I love to cook and bake, so long as other people are going to be eating the food. I hate cooking for just myself. But cleaning really doesn't bug me, it's just a matter of finding the motivation to do it.

Hope y'all are having a good weekend!! Also, a HUGE congrats to my cousin Molly's husband, Micah, and the Butler University Bulldogs for advancing to the Sweet Sixteen in the NCAA tournament! GO DAWGS!!!

I love Getting to Know You Sunday, its a great time to meet new bloggy friends! Loved reading your answers, and your blog is too cute

Jess said...


LOL, I don't know what meme means either. I'm so glad I'm not the only one.

Pennie said...

Love your blog. I'm on the other side of the age thing - you're the youngun'...and I'm...not. :) That's why I loved reading your answers. And your blog. I'll bet you'll be a great mom when the time comes! (I'm a mom of teenagers - like I said...other end of the spectrum!)
I'm going to poke around on your blog some more. Glad to meet you!

Melissa said...

Someone once told me what a meme is but I forget...

Anywho... that's not really important.

As to your responses:
* 2005? Good gosh. You are a baby! I graduated in 1999. I feel old now.
* At least you know you should take better care of yourself. I eat very poorly (no fruits or vegetables... no fish). But I admit it. So I'm okay with that.
* We will have to agree to disagree with the beach. I am not a fan of the beach. I hate the sand.
* I'm looking at getting a new laptop (mine died). I'm trying to decide whether or not to get another Dell (I loved my Dell) or get a Mac (my husband has a Mac). We were going to go look at laptops today, but the snow thwarted our journey.
* You didn't have to wear braces? I hate you.
* You really want to be a mommy? How adorable! Your time will come! You just have to be patient...

I hope you have a fabulous week! I did some work on my blog and "networking" this weekend: I set up a twitter account!

Oh and don't feel like you have to write a long response to this ridiculously long comment. It is not necessary.

"Talk" with you later!

I am really glad to hear that other people don't understand meme's either (I tried to explain it to my husband the other day, but felt like an idiot just trying to pronounce it, let alone articulating what it actually is)!

It was fun reading your answers! We have a Mac too, which I love, but unfortunately I get stuck with the PC (my husband is currently enrolled in an online technology program, so it's actually understandable).

Great idea with the Bucket List, too, I really enjoyed reading that!

Kylee said...

Hey Chica!

Thanks for the comment on my blog! It's good to see another young blogger too. :) And thank you so mcuh for the compliments! I am 18 and have been told I am mature for my age [that's what having a baby at 16 does to ya LOL]

Anywho, I shall follow your blog and keep up with your fickle life. :P Have a blessed evening!


P.S. You are going to make pretty babies one day! Praying for the right man to come along and sweap you off your feet! :D

2005? 1978 ... you do the math LOL

Lake house ... can't stand the sound of the ocean

I love my Dell

I love to clean ... If I could find someone to cook, I'd fire the house cleaners ... yes, I said house cleaners ... if you were as old as me, you'd have one too ... :P

Have a great Monday ..

Helene said...

I'm so there with you on the beach house!!! I love the sound of the ocean, the salty sea air...even the seagulls flying above crapping all over everyone's food.

In 2005, I was suffering from severe sleep-deprivation and PPD after just having our 1st set of twins. And you were graduating from high school? OMG! I think you actually were born the year I graduated from high school. OMG! And I'm about to turn 41 in a couple weeks. OMG! Half my life is over and yours is just beginning! OMG!

Marianne said...

@ Kim... Thanks for stopping by!!! I'm not even sure that I care to understand meme hahaha... and is it "me me, or may may, or meh meh"? Who the hell knows, really?

Glad you enjoyed my bucket list! If you blog, can you send me a link? The only one that's attached to your name was blank...

Juliana said...

I love reading this Marianne and getting to really know other bloggers better. Your comment totally made my day, you are so sweet. I just want to give a big virtual hug to so many amazing people in the blogosphere!

Very interesting Marianne.
I looked up meme and I forget what they said but I believe you used it correctly.

When I link up to your subscription for posts It goes to my google reader. Did I tell you this already?

You are brilliant thinking of number 6. Clever girl. I loved being pregnant and having children. With the third there were more aches and pains. I told myself to remember them so I wouldn't keep wanting children so much. I still wanted them till grandchildren, which are the most amazing invention.
I think hormones are part of it.

Amen to #$, totally true!

You are so lucky! I had braces for over 5 years!!!

The Girl Next Door Grows Up said...

I have no idea what meme means either. I read it is pronounced Me-Me as in "it is all about me"

WHo thinks of these things???
