Mannland's Getting to Know You 5/10/10

I am always grateful when I can answer these questions because I probably would write a mean blog today about the guys I work with. So here I go.

1. What has been your most memorable Mother's Day? (with your mom, as a mom, or with your wife)
This one is hard. Why, long term memory. Short term memory. Being too tired to even think. Now if you were to ask my most memorable birthday, it would be the one when my daughter threw me a surprise party for my 50th. That was way too cool. So, ummm, yeah, that's my most memorable "mothers" day.

2. Have you ever been pulled over for speeding and were you able to talk your way out of it?
I've never been pulled over for speeding. I am such a wuss, I only go 5 over the speed limit and if I even see a cop, my heart starts pounding and I stress out.

3. What's the oldest thing you have hanging in your closet?
The dress I got married in. It was yellow (come on, it was the 70's). So that would make it 31 years old. My mom wouldn't let me wear a white dress because I was already living with my husband. (another blog perhaps)

4. Do you whiten your teeth?
I probably should, but I don't.

5. Underwear of Panties...What do you call your "unmentionables"?
Unders. Tee-hee-hee. Unless I'm talking to my grandkids, then it's panties, and then my grandson gets mad cuz "boy's don't wear panties grammie". So I do try to call them underwear when talking to him.

6. If you could go on vacation right would you go?
This one is so easy. I would go on a Hawaiian Cruise. I've wanted to do this one forever. Have looked into them. Best way to see Hawaii. The ship takes you to each of the islands and you never have to unpack. Oh yeah, it would be heaven.

7. Do you get offended when people cuss on their blogs?
Hell no. I love to see the real them come out. If I got offended, I wouldn't follow them. I probably swear more than my husband.

8. If you had to give up one luxury item, it would be...?
OMG. What would I give up? Coffee, nope. Computer, double nope. E-reader, nuh uh. Dish TV, oh hell no!! Coke zero, you have got to be kidding me. My Bra. Yeah, that's the one. It's a luxury right. Keeps your boobs all nice and in place. OK, that's the one. My Bra!!
Ok, there you have it. Now, I might still write the why the guys bug me blog. But until then, have a really pleasant day.


  1. He he he he he he he he he he! I would give up my bra too!!!!! And then we could go on the Hawaiian cruise together! Crusin' around Hawaii braless........ahhhhhhhh.....heaven. :)

  2. haha! Sorry you have to work with those guys, i'm not very fond of them myself. I know they've got to be bad if my husband had a hard time working with them!

    Didn't know that about your wedding dress being yellow, I mean I knew it was yellow, but I didn't know there was a reason behind it. Still very pretty-love those pictures of you and dad!

    And I'm sure you'll be able to go on your hawaiian cruise someday!

    Hope you have a better day!

  3. Thanks you two. YOu both make my day go better.

  4. I call unmentionables undies...I for some reason dislike the word panties! Not sure why, but it gets my panties in a bunch LOL.

    It makes me mighty damn happy you don't mind swearing in blogs, because sometimes I let some choice words slip...I say a lot of them, but try not to say as many on my blog...don't want to scare to many people away with my potty mouth. Eek.

    I'd totally give up the bra too! I hate having to wear one. Mine don't do very well keeping mine up in place, but without them I'd need to roll them up and duct tape them to my chest or something. And while we are talking bras...underwires, OMG did a man make them to torture women?? I think so...

    I hope you have a great day, despite having to work with a bunch of men that annoy you. Hugs!

  5. ok I'm going to comment again, because last time I forgot to click the email follow ups thing. That way I don't have to come to your blog 20 times a day to see if there are more comments :P

  6. What would I give up....what would I give up.....

    Well, I'm a scrooge who has no cable (hellloooo hulu) and no dishwasher so I'd give car insurance? Trips to the dentist? Ah, those don't count?

    I'd probably have to give up eating out so much which would make me cry. Dishes make me cry.

  7. I didn't know about the yellow dress either. But since you eloped to Las Vegas, what business was it of your mom's what you wore? I need to know that.

    Oddly, I like wearing a bra. Keeps things perky. But it's not a luxury item. I wouldn't give up ANY luxury items. So there. Shallow? Maybe. But then I can't think of any "luxury" items that I have. Does that mean I have many and take them for granted or that I really don't have any? Hm. I'll go with the former and the "shallow" comment preceding it. Is cable tv a luxury? no...
