Weekend Whimsies

After much deliberation. Pondering. And consideration. I decided that the Friday Follies have a new day. And a new title. Let me introduce the Weekend Whimsies.

Whimsy: (hwĭm'zē) n. pl. whim·sies also whim·seys

1. An odd or fanciful idea; a whim.

2. A quaint or fanciful quality

Seems to fit. And off we go...Except...do you know that I forgot to answer my own questions last week?

Exerciser or couch potato?

Read a newspaper or get your news online?

Watch Olympics or boycott?

When you were in school, did you ride the bus, ride in a car, or walk?

Do you remember the first movie YOU saw in the theatre? What was it and how old were you?

What TV show did you love...but then got canceled?

Favorite board game?

carpet, hardwood, or tile?

Do you prefer a blog author to acknowledge your comments in the comment section, via email, or not at all? What do you do on your own blog?

Favorite restaurant (of the Applebees/Chili's type)?
(Many thanks to Joye! I have stolen some of her questions from her Copy Kat posts!)

I like "Weekend Whimsies"!

Exerciser or couch potato? Couch potato trying to reform

Read a newspaper or get your news online? read online

Watch Olympics or boycott?
Watching!!!!

When you were in school, did you ride the bus, ride in a car, or walk? bus

Do you remember the first movie YOU saw in the theatre? What was it and how old were you? Snow White with my Nana when I was 5

What TV show did you love...but then got canceled? "Dead Like Me" - I even signed a petition to get it back on...no dice :(

Favorite board game? Trivial Pursuit - I'm not really that into board games hence my boring answer!

carpet, hardwood, or tile? hardwood

Do you prefer a blog author to acknowledge your comments in the comment section, via email, or not at all? What do you do on your own blog? Honestly it depends on the topic. I've never gotten a response to a topic via e-mail. Sometime when you are addressed back in a comment section it's like you got picked to go to the head of the class so that's kinda cool (I'm still 12 at heart :)

Favorite restaurant (of the Applebees/Chili's type)?
Any place I can get Mexican, I'm a happy clam...so I guess I would say, Chili's

I posted my answers on my blog. Thanks!

Hey - I remembered to answer my own questions today. Of course I am doing it to procrastinate things I need to do this morning.

Couch potato at heart. But I actually found an exercise that I LOVE - and that's water aerobics. I kinda got off track over the summer, but Monday is the registration for the new fall session. And I can't wait to get back to it with all the seniors.

I actually read a newspaper. Every day. Gives me a warm fuzzy. Even though most of the news is old by the time I read it. Because my husband gets his online and tells me what I am missing while I live under the rock of homeschooling and blogging.

Kinda neither. I have watched a few things. And the opening ceremonies was just incredible. Or the 15 minutes I watched was. But...usually I am reading, or dealing with kids, or blogging, or something...and tv always takes a backseat.

My mom always drove me to school in the mornings. In one of the apartments where we lived, we walked. In another, we rode the bus. And when I got to high school I DESPISED riding the bus. I would even hang out till 5 or 6 so that a friend of mine who was part of the newspaper staff could drive me home. Or I would guilt my dad into coming to pick me up. Or something. Anything to get out of riding the bus.

I was 2. And it was a Benji movie. Katie and Madalyn were both 2 as well. Katie's first was Tarzan. Madalyn's was Finding Nemo.

There are LOTS of shows I loved that have gotten canceled. An older one "The Homefront" - set at the end of WWII. Great show. I think it only lasted a season or two. More recently - "John Doe" and the amazing "Arrested Development."

Trivial Pursuit.

Hardwood. In our old house, we had put all hardwoods down. And then we moved. There is way too much carpet here. And tile in the kitchen. I want it all gone. Eventually...

In my own, I try to acknowledge all the comments in the comment section. Somedays when I have been out and about, it's too overwhelming to even think about. And sometimes, like the other day, I accidentally left out STACI when responding. So, sorry! I like to read them in the comment section - because sometimes people ask questions that I would like the answer to as well.

Hmmm. At Applebees I always order the same thing - the Oriental chicken wrap. And it is to die for. But O'Charley's makes the best rolls. I am such a carb freak. Which is suppose a good thing as I am doing carb free. And even lost a little over 11 pounds the first week. Just a few million more to go...(or so it seems!)

Karen said...

Exerciser or couch potato? - Used to be a couch potato, but now I'm an exerciser. mainly walking and biking and some hand weights at home.

Read a newspaper or get your news online? - Both. I like sitting down and reading the paper for the local stuff. I read the NZ news sites online though.

Watch Olympics or boycott? - I've watched some of the events, like the swimming and the gymnastics. I've been a bit disapointed that they haven't shown some of the sailing and rowing events, well at least not at a time I can watch. NZ just one it's first gold medal in the rowing. YAAAAYYY!!

When you were in school, did you ride the bus, ride in a car, or walk? - Walked or rode my bike.

Do you remember the first movie YOU saw in the theatre? What was it and how old were you? - Don't remember going to the movies as a very young child. When we moved to Matamata, when I was about 10, friends and I would go to the Satursay matinee. First one I remember seeing was a Cliff Richard movie ... maybe 'Summer Holiday'. In those days, half a crown (2 shillings and 6 pence) would get us entry to the movie, an icecream and a packet of jaffas and a fish'n chip meal afterwards. Times have changed!!

What TV show did you love...but then got canceled? - There have been a few lately. ER is in it's final season. Friends, Dead Like Me, Jericho ...and a few others that I'nm not awake enough to remember!!

Favorite board game? - Trivial Pursuit, Monopoly and Aggravation, Scrabble. I can't choose!!!

carpet, hardwood, or tile? - Hardwood !!! I have dogs and grandkids!

Do you prefer a blog author to acknowledge your comments in the comment section, via email, or not at all? What do you do on your own blog?
- I like being acknowledged in either the comment section or email. I've been a bit bad re my own blog. My latest resolution is to start acknowledging comments!

Favorite restaurant (of the Applebees/Chili's type)? - Probably Applebees at the moment. Though I also like Red Lobster..

Lula! said...

Hooray--Kat's questions are BACK! And I was all worried yesterday, hence my frantic e-mail plea to you. I can do Weekend Whimsies, though--and I'm happy to do so.

And you have to know this: Supertramp rocks my world. ADORE THEM SO MUCH. Ok, now you know. Here we go...

Currently an exerciser--for the first time since high school. Writing that just now makes it seem all the more real. Shudder!

Both--paper and online.

Haven't watched a single iota of the Olympics. They bore me. Sorry, but true.

Mama drove me--'til I was 16 and then you know I took myself, even though she taught at my high school & was going there anyway!

Star Wars--I was about 4 and scared to death of Chewbaca.

My So-Called Life & Firefly.

Sequence!

75% of our house is hardwood. The girls' rooms, guest room, and "man's room" are carpet. All the bathrooms are tile. I love our hardwood, but it's dark--shows every speck of dust and dirt. UGH!

Um...I do both. I answer in the comments a lot, or if it's one of "regular peeps" I do e-mail. Or, as Kat can attest, I pick up the phone and say, "Let's chat!" I type fast, but talk faster.

Olive Garden or California Pizza Kitchen (does that count? My most favorite salad in the world comes from there.)

Elena said...

Probably more of a couch potato, need to be better about thatn.

I just watch the 10 o'clock news while laying in bed.

Watch....LOVE the Olympics.

Rode the buse in elementary then my parents gave me an old beater of a car for highschool.

I think it was Annie. I remember getting dressed up and everything.

I can't remember the name right now, but it was just a couple of seasons ago with John Ritter's son.

Scattagories

More of a carpet lover, but hardwood is nice too.

Comments, I love to come back and read all the responses to everyone. I try to comment back on my own, but sometimes it just doesn't happen.

Applebees blonde brownie/ Chili's White Molton Lava Now after reading your comment about low carb I have to ask what diet you're doing. I've been trying one too, but I kind of fell of the horse. Need to get back on. Best of luck to you!! Maybe you can share some of your low carb meal ideas. :)

SKELLER said...

Hey-
I like the new day/title. Well done...

Both. But I'm more naturally a potato ... with a good book in my hands...

Neither.

Watch.

Car ride

yes! Bambi when I was three. And Mom & Dad left my younger brother at home with a sitter. I thought I was just the cat's pajamas.

The Mole. ABC bastards (they cancelled it mid-season and never played the remaining episodes). And then they revived it later as Celebrity Mole. Which totally sucked donkeys. In so many ways and on so many levels and completely missed the whole point of what makes The Mole so special. So I was happy to have The Mole back this summer ... without celebrities. But, gosh, I miss Anderson Cooper as the host. (hmmm, I'm sure that's way more info than you really want on a whimsy post)

I kinda like card games best. Board games, I tolerate.

I know it's kinda white trash, but I like carpet. I like SOFT under my feet, and I prefer to vacuum than to sweep. But I have all three in my house. Tile because we have a big DOG and big dogs can leave nasty deep scratches in wood. Hardwood in closets (because if I ever re-carpet the house, I do NOT wish to empty the closets). And carpet in family room & bedrooms. (again, more info than necessary. geesh, what has come over me this morning????)

I don't care much. Whichever way seems most appropriate to blog author is totally fine by me. For me, I usually just answer in the comments.

Hmmm, I don't really like Applebee type restaurants. I much prefer cheap, whole-in-the-wall tacqueria type places. Or In n Out Burger.

texcindy said...

still thinking about exercising.
online
love the swimming--we tune in a yell at the TV as a family every night so far.
all of the above--and sometimes on the same day
either Bambi, Snow White, or Dumbo. I remember going to Bambi and being terrified and wanting to leave but when Mom would get up to leave I would chnage my mind. i think we made it through the entire movie.
Hot Shots--last season, was great eye candy with funny quips and absurd characters. i was terribly sad to see it get cancelled.
Clue
hardwood

Olive Garden

thanks for starting this whimsy thing-LOVE it!

Brian and Staci said...

My own Fairy BlogMother...of sorts...forgetting ME in her comments! How do I go on? I'm so crushed I don't even know if I can pull myself together to participate in your Weekend Whimsicals...big sigh...
Okay, I'll try... (you do know I'm kidding, right!?)
Couch potato at heart...but I am doing better at exercising

Online

Watching mainly swimming and a little gymnastics...but still, would rather be reading blogs:) GO USA though!

I lived with my grandparents starting at the age of 12...they literally lived right down the road from the school...but my grandfather would always drive me...can you say spoiled? (I did walk if it was a PERFECTLY beautiful day...no wind..ya know, it would mess up my hair I'd worked so hard on :) Oh and when I got a car...I actually RAN OUT OF GAS right in front of the high school and my grandfather WALKED up there with one of those red thingies filled with gas...only after he made me leave my car there for all my friends to ask me why...did I mention it was also the day of the National Honor Society meeting that I was President of ??? Oh my..how did I survive?

Close Encounters...it was my sister's b/d and I still remember the little boy saying...
"Good-Bye". I'm not sure how old I was...I guess I could figure it out if I knew what year that came out...I'm too lazy to look :)

Gosh...I can't remember the name of it...it was a couple of Fall's ago...he was a blind cop...I guess Brian and I were the only people who watched it though...we thought it good :) (Blind Justice maybe...I dunno...I think the guy is cute too...Chad someone-or-another?)

Monopoly

Hardwood

I think I prefer acknowledging them in the comment section...but this is a sad subject for me right now...unless they forget...oh, I'm tearing up as I type. (Again, kidding :) I try to leave comments in the comment section on my own blog.

We love Chili's...cause you can be loud and no one cares! Not that I let my boys me obnoxious or anything...I just like to know that we won't be looked at with raised eyebrows or anything, ya know!

Kat---you truly are THE BEST at returning comments in your comment section...and I am NOT kidding about that :) Big Hug! Have a great weekend everyone!

Shannon said...

Yay for Weekend Whimsies!!!


couch potato

online mostly but we do get the Sunday paper

watching the Olympics

I've done all... ride the bus, ride in a car, walk

I think it was ET; I would have been 6

Once and Again... I LOVED this show!

I like the Scene It? trivia games

We have tile in our kitchen and baths, carpet everywhere else. But I would really like to put in hardwood.

I've done both... acknowledge someone's comments in my own comment section or responded via email. I don't have a preference, it just depends on if the commenter has their email on their profile or not.

Probably Olive Garden

John Deere Mom said...

Trying so hard to be an exerciser...not working so well.

Online newspaper...but not everyday. Too depressing.

No Olympics for me...just not that into it.

A combo of bus and car...depending on the school/age.

The first movie I remember was Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. I had to have some scan done that required me to sleep during the day so my mom took me to a late showing to keep me up!

Will & Grace

Scrabble

Comments, email, doesn't matter to me

Olive Garden/Cheeseburger in Paradise/Ruby Tuesday!

Firefly mom said...

I'm so glad you found a way to continue to entertain us, you blog stalkers ;D

As much as I'd like to say otherwise, I'm a couch potato. But I *am* trying really, really hard to change my sluggish ways ;D

Online. I only read the paper for local happenings and the adds.

Watch Olympics (an Oregon homeschool graduate won bronze in fencing :)

Rode the bus when I went to public school, then in a car when I went to an alternative school.

The first movie that I can *remember* seeing was Star Wars when I was 5.

Firefly - hence my blog name!

Trivial Pursuit, but nobody will play it with me. I'm the queen of useless information!

We currently have all three in various areas of the house.

It's nice to have some kind of acknowledgement, in whatever form. I usually do in the cmment section of my own blog.

If I had to pick a large chain restaurant, it would be Cracker Barrel (I so wish we had one here!) Of restaurants we actually go to around here, it would be Greek Cuisina.

yertle said...

I love the new title. It is great and Whimsies is much more fun. Thanks for giving me time to take a break and to ponder these questions. I just posted it on my blog.

Swirl Girl said...

excersisor except when I am on the couch.

newspaper, but now that I am blogging, I have less time (or interest) in reading the paper. Shame too, it's a dying medium.

Olympics, although I am sick of the jingoistic broadcast.

walked, rode the bus, or drove....depending on my age, and where we lived.

First movie was Blazing Saddles. With my brother and his friend. That is the first one I remember.

Loved Mad About You...Friends, Six Feet Under. I think these shows more ran their course rather than cancelled in the raw sense of cancellation because they were bad.

Backgammon, or Trivial Pursuit

Hardwood, tile in the wet rooms, though. Hate carpet - love rugs.

Either acknowledgement is fine. I just love acknowledgement of any kind.

Don't like either Applebees or Chilis.. Whatever happened to Ground Round? We do like Macaroni Grill for family dining. Who doesn't love coloring on your table? And, the food is decent for kids and adults.

Finding Normal said...

Watch when we can. We saw that incredible swimming finish while in the hotel in Richmond last night. Whoa.

Favorite restaurant (of the Applebees/Chili's type)?

Johnny Carino's? Macaroni Grill? Don't tend to go to any chain restaurant much other than Moe's. Ate at a Moe's in SC, and they had to cook up the tofu -- seems no one there orders tofu.

future butterfly said...

Exerciser or couch potato?
A couch potato that wishes she was an exerciser. But I absolutely *love* water aerobics, too. I think I will go on Monday, if I feel well. Thanks for inspiring me!

Read a newspaper or get your news online?
Online-- can't stand wasting paper.

Watch Olympics or boycott?
TOTALLY watching. I am such a fan.

When you were in school, did you ride the bus, ride in a car, or walk?
In elementary, I rode the bus-- was even a PATROL, which meant I could stand up. (That seems ridiculous to me now, and against All That I Am About!) I rode the bus in High School until tenth grade, when we moved to a neighborhood not half a mile from the school. Then I rode with somebody until I could drive myself.

Do you remember the first movie YOU saw in the theatre? What was it and how old were you?
I don't, but I remember the first R-RATED movie I saw in the theatre-- my mom *loved* Flashdance, and took me to see it!

What TV show did you love...but then got canceled?
Let's see... Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, NewsRadio, Millennium, My So-Called Life, Beauty & the Geek, The Wire

Favorite board game?
Scattergories

carpet, hardwood, or tile?
We have carpet, but I want hardwood ASAP.

Do you prefer a blog author to acknowledge your comments in the comment section, via email, or not at all? What do you do on your own blog?
Because my blog is on myspace, I comment on the blog. I have no preference as to how bloggers acknowledge my comments-- don't really feel they have to-- I'm just a grateful reader!

Favorite restaurant (of the Applebees/Chili's type)?
Not as big a chain as Applebee's or Chili's, but my absolute favorite is Houston's. I've ordered the same exact thing every single time since I started going there (which I think was back in the late 70s, if I'm not mistaken). We go about two or three times a month.

Otherwise, I like Chili's sometimes.

Firefly mom said...

To the other "Dead Like Me" fans on here (Kelly, Karen) - they've made a direct-to-DVD movie that was originally supposed to be released this summer, but they've pushed it back to 2009. So we'll be enjoying some more reaper fun soon!

Oh, I should of added 'SG1' to my list of favourite TV shows that ave been canecelled. I was really bummed out about that one!!! At least they made two movies, which helped wrap up storylines!!

Rhea said...

I've always been an exerciser but give me a good book and I'm a couch potato. Since having kids, I've been all over the place...couch potato during nursing days, more active now, back and forth depending on what I have time for.

I read news online...sporadically. I'm not a regular news reader but I do have CNN ALERTS subscribed to my email so I find out IMPORTANT news. lol

I'm trying to watch as much Olympics as possible, because I really enjoy it.

I went to private school and my parents drove me. No bus.

I do not remember the first movie I saw in the theatre.

I loved Dresden Files and it was cancelled. That's the most recent TV show I can think of that this happened to.

I love Blokus and Sequence right now. I enjoy Monopoly when I'm in the right mood. :o)

I love carpet but hate cleaning it. I'd prefer hardwood or tile over it anyday in my own home but I mainly have carpet here in our rental house...and some tile.

I think I prefer most blog suthors to respond to comments in the comment section. I've been trying both on my blog.

I don't know. We so rarely eat out. I like Chili's. I like TGI Fridays.

I can't believe you didn't answer your own questions last time! Bad Kat!!

One Wired Woman said...

Oh girl... I was going to just dart in, read a few of your posts... now you're making me have to think? My brain is fried after two weeks of Disney!! Forgive me for not answering all of them. Let's see what I can muster up...

Benji? I think that is first movie I can remember seeing in a theatre. I cried and cried.

Fav board game? Apples to Apples

I think its fun for a blog author to acknowledge in the comments... you are a pro at that!! I should issue you an award.

I love Chili's... the food is consistent. The chicken tacos have tasted the same for twenty years and I love that.

I'm a "sit at the computer" potato... not much into being healthy, working out... gag!

Read the sale ads of the newspaper... love catalogs and magazines.

Love to watch the Olympics... these athletes have worked so hard to get there. Got to support them.

Walked and rode in a car to school... later rode the bus during middle school. Then drove to school in high school.

Hardwood and tile...

So sorry I've been MIA in Blogland... it's been crazy around here. Calgon!! Take me away.

~Jill :)

Angie's Spot said...

Great new title! Here are my answers.

I aspire to be an exerciser, but I just aspire from my permanent couch potato spot.

I get about half from my morning paper and half online.

I've watched the Olympics sparingly. Mostly because hubby is obsessed and my laptop is located in front of the t.v. in my couch potato spot.

My parents drove me to school every morning. I've only ridden a school bus on field trips.

The first movie I remember seeing was The Empire Strikes Back when I was 4 yrs old.

Recently, I loved Big Shots. And those punks at ABC canned it. There were some VERY cute guys in that cast. Hmm...that gives me an idea.

I love Monopoly. It's a classic. I also love Cranium.

Hardwood.

I prefer an email, just because I forget to go back to the comments of all the blogs I follow. I try to email all my commenters, but have been failing miserably here lately.

My favorite chain type restaurant is O'Charleys.

Jennifer P. said...

Exerciser or couch potato? EXERCISER! HATE SITTING STILL FOR TOO LONG!

Do you prefer a blog author to acknowledge your comments in the comment section, via email, or not at all? What do you do on your own blog? IF IT INVOLVES SOMETHING PERSONAL, I PREFER EMAIL. I TRY AND HIT EVERYONE'S BLOG PERSONALLY TO ANSWER QUESTIONS, BUT AM AWARE OF THOSE WHO ANSWER IN THEIR OWN COMMENT SECTION AND WILL STOP BY AGAIN LATER TO SEE WHAT WAS SAID IF I CAN.

Jennifer P. said...

Oh yeah---and I love Macaroni Grill!

Mama Dawg said...

Exerciser or couch potato? Exerciser

Read a newspaper or get your news online? Our local paper is local only, so I get national news by TV or online.

Do you prefer a blog author to acknowledge your comments in the comment section, via email, or not at all? What do you do on your own blog? I don't care. I rarely leave a comment that deserves a response.
