Cool. I didn't forget to answer my own questions!

That is a tough one. It depends on my mood. But probably burger. Because I like fried chicken.

soda. Diet Coke. Sometimes.

A wall calendar. While my husband yells at me to update our syched google calendars. I have a difficult time keeping up. And I like the visual of the wall calendar. And my wall calendar is pretty.

Umm. Really young. Younger than two. I have a bracelet for swimming a 1/4 mile when I was two.

A Mustang. But it was from the year that they were ugly. Like Pinto ugly. And mine was a stick shift that my dad changed the transmission on to make it an automatic. But it got me where I needed to go. Like school. And work. And college.

Oy Vey. 99800ish. That 100K is looming. And I am not quite ready to replace it.

Peanut butter.

Ham and mushrooms. Very light on the sauce.

Trivial Pursuit. Or we could discuss my farmtown and Bejeweled addiction on facebook. But we won't go there.

Black. With a gel pen. Or a thin Sharpie.

Angie's Spot said...

Chicken

Soda

I have an old-fashioned day-runner in my purse, but I'm trying really hard to move to Google calendar. Now I just need a smart phone that I can access Google from.

Probably 4

A Dodge Colt Station Wagon

25,000

I'm going to guess Lizzy suggested it and my fave is chocolate silk.

Pepperoni or just cheese. I know, boring.

Farmtown. Is it really a game though? Hmm, I like Scattergories and Pictionary also.

Black ink

Shannon said...

Chicken.

Mostly soda. Beer would be 2nd, and wine 3rd.

Wall calendar and day-runner.

Maybe around 5? I took swim lessons when I was 8, but I remember being in my grandparents; pool at a younger age.

I was given my mom's old Nissan Pulsar NX to drive when I got my license. But the 1st car I bought with my own money was a Honda Civic when I was 20.

Just hit 60,000.

Peanut butter (I don't like cooked fruit)... and my guess is Katie?

Plain ol' cheese. Unless it's a thin, crispy crust... then I like black olives, green peppers and onions.

I like lots of games... Scattergories, Outburst, Trivial Pursuit, Scene It DVD, Scrabble...

Blue ink.

Linda said...

Okie dokie ... here goes ...

BURGER! The big fat homemade juicy ones with so many toppings you can't fit your mouth around it.

Beer, wine, soda? yes please!

I have a school calendar in a 3 ring binder, but I have to duplicate everything for the iCal on the computer so hubby can sync with his computer at work and stay updated. Drives me nuts.

I think I've been swimming since toddlerhood.

First car was a 1973 blue Toyota Celica ... I loved that car!

Oh, like 70,000ish miles I think, I don't really pay attention.

Pie? Did you say PIE? Oh yeah! I seriously haven't met a pie I didn't like ... but fave has to be cherry!

Pizza toppings ... pepperoni, olives and mushrooms. That's been my trio since high school.

Fave game ... Scrabble or Trivial Pursuit, but no one likes to play with me. LOL

Black ink ... Sakura Pigma Micron .5 tip. Not that I'm particular or anything.

Glad to see your Friday Follies are back!

Good ones!!

Burger. Always. With pickles and cheese. Mmmm.

I love wine and beer, but my heart goes out to soda. Can you hear me, Dr. Pepper?

Google Calendar

Baby. We have pictures of my sister and I as toddlers standing on the skis in front of my mom being pulled behind the boat. That would probably get her five years at Leavenworth now, but it was great.

77 Buick LeSabre. It was HUGE.

50K

Cherry

Pepperoni although I enjoy banana peppers sometimes.

Bejeweled. I'm a horrible addict.

No preference.

Gave up the diet coke addiction so I only allow myself one a day. I'm a beer kinda girl too. :)

I like cobbler. Blackberry cobbler. Did Katie suggest it?

Gourmet veggies with white sauce- and no peppers.

Heather said...

Summertime, burger on the grill fo'sho. Winter, chicken, any which way it's cooked.

Wine. Or Coca-cola. Just not together.

Wall and purse. I'm like you, I've gotta have a visual, and I like to write things down with a nice gel pen.

For real swim, not just doggy-paddle in a panic? Hmmm, probably about 10. I was afraid of the water.

1984 Chevette. 4 door hatchback. Yep, I was cool like that.

71,000. Almost paid off. My goal is to make it past 100,000.

Chicken potpie. Not much of a sweet tooth here.

Mushrooms with pepperoni on top of the cheese so it gets nice and crispy.

Euchre. Esp girls against guys. So much fun, with the right people playing. With the kiddos, it's Life.

Brown. I'm a rebel :)

Michelle said...

Chicken if it's a good marinated and grilled chicken breast trimmed of fat. Otherwise, I want a good, juicy burger!

Wine!

My head? Or the one the blood donation center gave me at the end of last year...

Young. I took swim lessons at 6 months old. I've never known not swimming, but no idea when I learned.

Ford Explorer

Around 11K

Caramel apple streusel. Or cherry streusel.

Cheese. Orrr spinach if it's stuffed. Or Alfredo sauce with onion, spinach, tomatoes, garlic, and feta.

Uhhhhh. The Farming Game?

What, purple's not a choice? I guess black.

Firefly mom said...

What? Nobody else wants to play? Maybe they don't like pie ;).

Chicken or burger?
Neither, but if there would be one I could eat again without getting ill, it would be chicken.

beer, wine, or soda?
Water. Or Margaritas...

What kind of calendar do you use?
Wall (or should I say, fridge) and a spiral bound weekly/monthly planner that I carry with me.

How old were you when you learned to swim?
I have no idea, but it was young. Under 5.

What was your first car?
Technically, it was a 1978 Mercury Zephyr, but I only had it one day. My step-dad picked it out, and my mom made him take it back and get me something newer, which turned out to be a 4dr 1984 Ford Tempo.

How many miles are on your current car?
Just under 60,000

It depends on my mood. Generally berry, banana cream, or chocolate cream.

Blockus.

black or blue ink?
pink or purple ;D

Mama Dawg said...

I'm so late on this. Sorry.

burger

wine

What's that? What day is today? Huh? (teasing....I have a Coca-Cola wall calendar at home and a homemade one with Disney pics at work).

I don't know. 5?

1991 teal Geo Storm named the "Teal Mobile".

Close to a lot.

Pie......Key Lime

sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms and onions

Board-Life
Card-Texas Hold 'Em

Whatever's handy.

Lula! said...

You know I love this stuff...

Um...depends. I like both.

Um...depends. I like beer, wine, and Coke. Equally. But if I have to choose...a Pacifico, with lime.

Ugh...embarrassing...it's a Twilight one. Bought last year, before all the crazy took place and it was cheapened by mass merchandising.

I learned to swim at the age of 5...with lessons, I mean. Officially capable of swimming, that is.

Oh, I win on this one: a 1970 Volkswagon Fastback Bug, standard-H, 4-in-the-floor. It was so hardcore. My parents went on their honeymoon in it. (Thanks for a great blog idea, Kat!)

Going to check the milage: 16887. Exactly!

Pecan pie, or real Kentucky Derby pie.

Cheese, cheese, and more cheese. Or pepperoni.

Favorite game...like, board game? Sequence!

I prefer blue for everything except letter writing. Then the Elizabeth Post in me reaches for my black fountain pen. Seriously.

Britt said...

Oooh .. depends on my mood. I mean, I love me a good cheeseburger. But I also really dig baked chicken.

Um .. none of the above. I like water. Or milk. Weird, I know. And I don't like beer or wine. I'm more of a flavored Smirnoff, Bacardi,Sparks,Mike's Hard Lemonade type of drinker, on the rare occasions that I do drink something other than water or milk. My husband thinks I'm an alien..

Wall calendar .. but it's hardly ever updated. I find the only way I can truly remember something is if it's written on the back of my hand.

'95 Ford Probe. Red. Rusty. Bad seals .. so when it rained and I turned, water poured through the sunroof. And in the winter the inside of the windows frosted over. Lovely.

Somewhere around 121,214 .. I remember because last time I drove it said 12 12 14 and for some reason that made me laugh =-)

Pumpkin .. no lemon meringue .. french silk .. Hershies .. can I just choose pie?

I like Supreme pizzas .. because I'm indecisive.

Hide-n-seek, Rummy, Spoons, Speed, and too many board games to count

Black ink .. fine point. Preferably not gel ink. It always smudges and that makes me grumpy.
