The Sister Meme

Here's a meme I got from Kat who got it from her sister, ergo it has now become...The Sister Meme.

1. When is the last time you had a paper cut?

A few weeks ago – thanks for jinxing me. And it wasn’t a paper cut, it was from a file folder, and you know how much that cardboard hurts. Ouch.

2. Would you rather have a 5 pound tumor on your face or a 50 pound tumor on your back, neither of which could ever be removed?

Probably on my back. People judge you so much by how you look and I’ve got so many strikes against me already, so I think it would be easier to hide something repulsive by draping myself with pretty shawls. And I already have a 50 pound load back's called my a**.

3. What was the best part of your weekend?

This past weekend? Every weekend is excellent, but this past weekend we had an honored houseguest, Major Knitter, so that was obviously the best part.

4. Do you like peanut butter?

My most bestest favorite comfort food is peanut butter and crackers. ‘Nuff said.

5. List three foods you can’t stand.

Raw onions, seafood, Japanese popcorn (it tastes like fish). Although I will eat a fish fry and also tuna fish. I know, I'm such a paradox. Or confused.

6. Did you make your bed this morning?

Why yes I did. And I made DN2’s bed as well. When people come to your house expecting the grand tour, you have to maintain a modicum of neatness. Most of the time. Except in the box room. And the attic. And the closets.

7. When it comes to handshakes, are you firm?

Firm. Always.

8. What was the most effective punishment for you as a kid?

I was a bad child. I disobeyed a lot and my mother was very lenient. Face it, I was a brat. And so was my mother. As a matter of fact, my grandfather died when my mother was 10 or so, and just before he died he said to my grandmother, “You’re going to have a hard time with that one, Minnie.” You know what they say about payback…it comes in the form of your own children. But seriously, folks, my most effective punishment was delivered at Parris Island, circa 1983.

9. What is your favorite way to fix/eat potatoes?

Potatoes – food of the gods. Do we mean all potatoes? I could live off of potatoes so essentially I don’t have a favorite way because I like them French fried, baked, twice-baked, mashed, roasted, hash browned, home fried, in casseroles, scalloped, in frittatas, in salad, and in soup. Any other way? I’ll eat them. (And have you seen my a** lately? Please refer to question #2 on this one. I should just post a picture - that would sufficiently answer this question.)

10. Ask me something.

Okay, this is Kat’s question:

If you were stranded on a desert island with no hope of rescue, and you could bring one thing, would it be: 1) an endless supply of classic literature; or 2) a gigantic yarn stash and knitting needles?

I think this question is unanswerable. And I’m assuming there will be potatoes there already.

And here's mine:

If you were able to relive one day of your life, which one would it be?

Oh goodness, that is a hard one. I wish I was one of those people who could say "no regrets" and mean it. Hmmm....

hahahahahaha...potatoes...your funny

Wow.... yarn, books and potatoes. That is a dilemma. Maybe a book made of a magical fibre that can be recycled and spun into yarn for knitting. What would this magical fibre be made of? Well, potatoes, of course.
