Well, I've discovered an important fact: (drum roll, please...) I don't like blogging without pictures. I guess it's the visual learner in me.

And the whole hard drive/ new computer thing is almost finished. I never realized how many different software programs, plug-ins, add-ons, freeware, etc.. I use daily! I'm thinking it might be a record... well, no - I'm sure WeaverDad has me beat on that one. Anyway, since the business comes first in this regard, my camera and scanner will just have to wait until next weekend when WeaverDad has time again to work on it!

So, in the meantime, here is a "random meme" I lifted from Musings of a Housewife's site. She chose not to answer questions 22&23 - which means I probably wouldn't have wanted to either. She has good taste you know. (wink)

1. What time did you get up this morning? 6:15
2. Diamonds or pearls? I'm not really a jewelry girl.
3. What was the last film you saw at the cinema? Cars
4. What is your favorite TV show? How Things are Made (Discovery channel) In my defense, I watch very little TV.
5. What did you have for breakfast?
6. What is your middle name? I could tell you, but then I'd have to kill you. (I will tell you that it's the name I go by.)
7. What is your favorite cuisine?
8. What foods do you dislike? Brussel sprouts, I'm not a big seafood fan, and I've only recently found a couple of Chinese dishes that I like.
9. What are your favorite chips? Sunchips
10. What is your favorite CD at the moment? Legacy by Nichole Nordemann
11. What kind of car do you drive? A red Grand Caravan. (I love it.)
12. Favorite sandwich? Peanut butter and jelly
13. What are characteristics you can't stand? Constant complaining & constant "sunny-ness" (There is probably a better word....)
14. What are your favorite clothes? Jeans and v-neck t-shirts.
15. If you could go anywhere on vacation? Anywhere peaceful - mountains or beach.
17. Where would you want to retire? I'm not sure. Gotta tell you I have very little faith that will ever actually happen, given that whole we need money to live thing. Close to my kids, I suppose.
18. Favorite time of day? The morning before everyone is up. (I've never thought about this before, and this answer surprises me - I'm am so NOT a morning person. :) )
19. Where were you born? TN
21. What is your favorite sport to watch? Volleyball
24. Coke or Pepsi? I'm sensitive to caffeine, so I don't drink either very often. And when I do, I don't care which.
25. Beavers or ducks? What? I don't understand the question.
26. Are you a morning person or a night owl? Amen to Musing Housewife: Night owl all the way. My ideal day would be noon to midnight.

34. Favorite day of the week? Sunday
35. Favorite restaurant? Hmmm.... Let's see, if I don't have to cook - they're ALL good. :) But, Outback Steakhouse, I suppose.

Good to learn a little more about you Weaver Mom. Glad you didn't give your name if it meant death to us!!!

Not a jewelry girl! I'm not sure we can be friends anymore. ;-) I don't remember what 23 and 24 were, but they were dumb. I will not be a slave to the meme! :-)

I know! It's just un-American, isn't it? :) I would much rather have a backrub or a night of not doing the dishes!
