Weekend Whimsies

Guess what? I am in two places today. It's an internet miracle. Or special effect. So, after we have our interrogation session getting to know you session, go and visit me at Blog Around the World.

Explorer or Mozilla?

Favorite musical?

Does anyone in your family read your blog? Do they comment?

Coke or Pepsi?

What show are you most looking forward to this fall season?

cookies or cake?

How many speeding tickets have you gotten?

Where will you go on your next vacation?

Ocean, lake or pool?

Favorite appetizer?

Keys to the Magic Travel said...

Yippee!! First on my own blog. It's a miracle. And I didn't forget to answer my own questions this week. Hopefully no one will sneak in first while I pontificate...

Explorer. Because I never remember about Mozilla.

I can't choose. Mama Mia. Or Wicked. Or Spam Alot. OR the very, very funny, and very R rated Avenue Q.

My mom, husband, aunt, cousins, and daughter read. And my cousin Jennifer will comment. Rarely.

Coke Zero.

Well, I suppose that LOST is really a winter release. So it would either be Fringe or the return of Heroes. Anyone know when Big Love is coming back?


NONE. Zero. Zilch. (knock wood)

I don't know. My book club is going on a road trip to Biltmore Estate in November. I guess that counts. For family vacation...ummm...maybe another cruise...

Pool by the Ocean

Calamari. Yum!

Susie said...

Ok...I'll play!!


Mama Mia

No one in the family reads my blog:-( I should get on that:-)


The Office

Cake...of course:-)

2 tickets

We can't afford a vacation.

I like the pool by the ocean thing, so I'll take that:-) an appetizer or anytizer:-)

Finding Normal said...


Favorite musical? I've never seen a REAL one, but I liked The Music Man in my high school's auditorium. Someday I'd like to see some of these fabulous shows that I hear so much about!

No one knows about it! I enjoy my anonymity! I did tell my sister-in-law once, but I don't know if she ever visits or not.

Diet Pepsi

House, Grey's Anatomy

as long as it's chocolate, it doesn't matter!

none. knock wood!

Probably the same place we've gone the last several years--TN. We don't like change.

Ocean, but we live in the MidWest, so pool. Not a fan of lakes.

Is there such a thing as a bad appetizer? I like them all! Potato skins, wings, mozz sticks, nachos. YUM! John Deere Mom's stuffed mushrooms are crazy good, and I had some fabulous fried green beans on vacation that I still dream about. No wonder I'm overweight!

Shannon said...

Neither... I have a Mac so I use Safari

Miss Saigon or Les Miserables

I know for sure my mom, MIL and husband read... they all have yet to comment (losers!)


I'm a tv-junkie, so there is no way I could just pick one... Grey's Anatomy, The Office, Life, Heroes, Lost...

I'm with you... I'll take a brownie over cake/cookies any day!

I think 4

If a weekend getaway counts as a vacation, it will be to Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg/Smoky Mts

pool (I will not swim in water that has not been chemically treated)

mozzarella sticks

John Deere Mom said...

Almost always Explorer...but Mozilla if Explorer locks up which it does more and more lately. I can't use Mozille when I post won't let me move them. :(

No musical is the best musical. Sorry.

Mom and Sis read and comment on the blog.

Diet Pepsi!


Cookies...and cake for dessert. ;)

Oh my. I've been pulled over 8 times and gotten 3 tickets. Sigh.

Vacation? What's that?

Pool please.

Anything with bacon or cheese or mushrooms. Or fried pickles. Or fried onions. Or...anything fried.

Unknown said...

Explorer, but I'm getting a tad annoyed with it as it seems to be locking up on me a bit lately!!

Mamma Mia !!! It's tipped Phantom Of The Opera off it's pedastal.

My husband and my daughter. Both have commented once or twice. One of my sons also reads it, but never comments..


Heroes and ER

I'm a sucker for brownies, but really like cookies and cake, :-)

Ummm ...two. Oh, and a couple of warnings. I have a bit of a lead foot...

Probably Disneyland ... while enroute for NZ.

Ocean. I lived about a 5 minute walk from the ocean in NZ. Loved it.

Coconut Shrimp with Dipping Sauce, Scotch Eggs and Sausage Rolls...

Debbie said...



-nobody knows about it

- Diet Coke

- Lost and House


-1 and 2 warnings

- going to Truro next week for a few days

-Ocean to watch. Pool or lake to swim

-potato skins

Insane Mama said...

Joseph and the amazing technicolor dreamcoat
My sister reads and sometimes comments
Prison Break and LOST
Mammoth mountain (snowskiing)
Artichoke dip

Debbie said...


Ms. Saigon

My hubby, BIL, two SIL's and yes, they comment.

Diet Coke, of course.

The there anything else?



We are thinking Hawaii next summer.


spinach or artichoke dip

As usual, fun questions!

Tiffany said...


Cats, Miss Saigon and Momma Mia

My husband. No, never

Diet Coke

Grey's Anatomy and October Road

probably cake ?

Can't remember them all but at the ripe old age of 18, I got three tickets in three different counties in one day. eeks

Florida in two weeks


Spinach dip, cold.boiled shrimp

Lula! said...

Woooooooooooo! Let the fun begin!


Les Miserables, Rent, The Secret Garden, A Chorus Line. Can't choose just one!

Yes--my mom, and she comments regularly. But she's the only one!

COKE. Always COKE! Pepsi is of satan. For real.

Fall? Well, Fringe and Tru Blood (you know me and Vamps). But what I'm most excited about is LOST, of course. And Battlestar Galactica--but they'll be in the winter. Sigh...

Both cookies and cake, please.

3 or 4 speeding tickets...all back in the days of my youth.

VEGAS, baby--in just over a month!

Ocean and pool both. Once you've been in a beach house with its own private pool you realize that's heaven on earth. Don't you agree?

The crab wontons at The Cheesecake Factory.

Kelly said...

Make sure you stop on by today...I left you something...

Gina said...

Explorer. The End.

Musical? High School Musical (1). Don't throw things at me! It's cute.

My mom and 2 of my sisters blog. We all read each other.

COKE. Don't you live around Atlanta? Isn't it your job to prostelitize the world for Coke? Like Pepsi is even an option. Pshht.

None. I don't have cable.

Martha Stewart has the best chocolate molasses cookies. Hmm. I should find the recipe.

3. All dropped.

My next vacation will be September 3. The day after the first day of school.

Pool for swimming. Ocean if the beach is sand, which we don't have around here.

Anything off the applebee's happy hour menu. Or pot stickers.

Swirl Girl said...

1) not sure if you are talking SUV or operating system. My guess is that latter, so that make my answer Explorer

2) A Chorus Line or Hair
3) Sister and Mom. They comment out loud, not on line

4) neither
5) Looking forward to 4 hours a day with no kids...
6) salt and grease and crunch followed by cookies
7) zero
8) Hawaii in October YEAHH!!!!!
9) If they could make Ocean with no sand - that would be awesome. No likey lakey goopy bottom. Ick.
10) cheese, cheese, and more cheese

Rhea said...

Mozilla Firefox, it works awesome for me. IE was letting me down.

I love the music from Phantom of the Opera. Sound of Music a huge favorite. Annie.

My mom and one sister have commented. Other family reads but I don't know how much.

I've given up soft drinks but I love coke and Dr. Pepper.

I'm looking forward to Bones, Ghost Whisperer & House. LOST eventually.

I love both cookies and cake. Intensely.

I've only had one speeding ticket, at age seventeen, and boy, did I deserve it.

I'd love to go to Europe or the Caribbean, but most likely will end up somewhere in Texas due to financial reasons.

I love the ocean, lake and pools all for different reasons. I'd prefer to be on a lake though, if choosing someplace to live.

Favorite appetizer is chips and queso or salsa, I think.

Rhea said...

Kat, I can't believe you've never had a speeding ticket, ever?! Have you ever gotten any kind of ticket? That's just not right. lol

I've never tried coke zero. I should try it. My son says it's good.

Kelly said...

Explorer or Mozilla? Just to show what a techy loser I am, I didn't know what Mozilla was until Shannon's comment...I was going to have to google it before commenting. So my obvious answer (at this point) is Explorer

Favorite musical? Mamma Mia!, Chicago, and Wicked

I can't swim. But if I did, I think I'd definitely choose a pool.

Tiffany said...

Hey Kat,

Discovery United Streaming has video on virtually every subject under the sun for every grade level available. My girls watch it religiously, some days just randomly picking a topic to see what they can find out. I've been extremely pleased with it to the point that I would pay the $60 (or however much it is now) for the one year subscription.

By the way, I LOVED your blog at BATW! Have no idea how you do it all. :)

Trish said...

Explorer.......never heard of Mozilla. son just finished theatre camp and this was the production they did at the end of the week and it was soooo fab. I will have the songs running thru my brain for weeks to come.

My husband does, but never comments. Two sisters and my mom blog (Gina above is one of mysisters) so we read each other, otherwise I have no idea who reads.

All of the above.

I like them all, especially crab puffs.

fun questions. And I loved your BATW post!

Brian and Staci said...

Kat!!! Thanks for your email address! AND I did it!! Yeah ME! I figured out ALL by myself how to delete your comment :) (I didn't want to keep you email address up...not that tons of people are stopping by my blog or anything..but you can never be too careful!) Otherwise...I would've NEVER deleted a comment from Kat :) Thanks! I'll shoot you an email later today :)

I like using both Explorer and Mozilla.

I loved MamaMia and have yet to see Wicked (we've got a few months yet before it's out of Chicago and hubby has promised to take me).

I don't do a blog anymore because my husband started reading it and made me anxious.


I am so looking forward to Heroes, and Big Love (which I think is going to be back this fall), and Pushing Dasies, and well I've got a big list of things I like watching.

Cookies or Cake? I can't have both?!

One speeding ticket.

Our next vacation is a week on the beach at Gulf Shores, AL (for my neice's wedding).
