Getting to Know Me - aka Nora-ology

I got this from a friend's blog (thanx Wench!) & thought it would be a nice way for you to get to know me a little better. If you want to play along (& I'd really love it if you would), put it up on your blog, or send me an e-mail...replace my answers with yours and re-post this as your name followed by “ology”.


What is your salad dressing of choice?
Kraft Russian

What is your favorite sit-down restaurant?
Well, I'm a lot pickier nowadays, thanks to this cranky ole pancreas, but hands down it's still MacCool's Irish Pub for buffalo shepherd's pie or A Little Taste of Britain for my fish n chips.

What food could you eat every day for two weeks and not get sick of?
Nothing really. It's a crap shoot any more. Yogurt maybe...or a cinnamon raisin bagel with cream cheese.

What are your pizza toppings of choice?
If I could HAVE pizza again it would either be LOADED (bacon, grilled chicken, beef, mushrooms, olives, onions, sausage, extra cheese) OR the Fisherman's Wharf from Pier49 Pizza (white sauce, sun-dried tomato, shrimp, & crab - mmmmmm!)

What do you like to put on your toast?
real butter, honey, & a sprinkle of cinnamon


How many televisions are in your house?
only one

What color is your cellphone?

Do you have an iPod?


Are you right-handed or left-handed?
Right-handed -- I wish I could be ambidextrous like all 3 of my munchkins, tho!

Have you ever had anything removed from your body?
A baby in 2002. *LOL* Oh, along with tonsils, adenoids & 8 teeth back when I was 12.

What is the last heavy item you lifted?
A box of books from Aidan's closet the other day - good grief, I think I've got enough to start my own library!

Have you ever been knocked unconscious?


If it were possible, would you want to know the day you were going to die?

If you could change your name, what would you change it to?
I wouldn't.

Would you drink an entire bottle of hot sauce for $1,000?
As much as I could use $1,000 right now, if I drank a bottle of hot sauce, I'd get so sick that the co-pays would eat that up & then some, so, um.....NO!


Spring & Autumn

Christmas & Halloween

Day of the week?
Monday. Kids go back to school on Mondays & everyone goes to work so I can shop in the stores without the BS. LOL

Not sure - with what I've gone through the last 2 years, there hasn't been a good month yet...I'm still waiting & hoping, tho!


Missing someone?

Tired mostly - too much stress this week.

What are you listening to?
"Closer" by the Scottish group, Travis

Current worry?
Money - don't have enough of it coming in for doing what needs to be done around here & how can I get more?

Lil girls' room

Last time you had a run-in with the cops
Aww, geez! Do I HAVE to remember something like this? *LOL* *sigh* Okay, it was a little over a year ago, a lady in my neighborhood almost ran over a little girl, when I tried to make her aware of it she flipped me off, screamed at me & like a dummy, I turned around & followed her. She called the cops & I got cited for "disorderly conduct." When it got to court, the City Prosecutor was sweet enough to DISMISS WITHOUT PREJUDICE, because I was trying to protect a child. (yippeee!)

Last person you talked to?
Chris - his sister's funeral down in Texas just ended about 5 minutes ago, so he called to check on me & the boys.

Last person you hugged?
Aidan Chance

Do you always answer your phone?
Not always - these boys are like Pavlov's dogs - the phone rings & they all jump & start barking! *LOL*

It’s four in the morning and you get a text message, who is it?
A wrong # because anyone that knows me knows that I don't DO text messages. *ROFL*

If you could change your eye color what would it be?
I wouldn't - I like my gray eyes.

What flavor do you add to your drink at Sonic?
Limes in my Dr Pepper OR I'll have them add mocha & caramel to my Java Chiller

What’s on your wish list for your birthday
Just had my birthday on Wednesday (the 9th) & I didn't get ANYTHING off of my list - didn't get anything, period - oh, well, maybe next year...

Can you do push ups?
Why the flip would I want to? *LOL* Okay, okay...if I HAVE to, I could knock off a few.

Can you do a split?
I can do a banana split. Does that count? *LOL*

Does the future make you more nervous or excited?
Normally, excited . The unknowns are what makes life fun. Lately, though, nervous, because I have no idea what else is gonna be dropped into my lap to deal with! grrrr.....

Do you have any saved texts?
The reminders for my Cricket payments every month - never read.

Have you ever been in a car accident?
Yes, two of them, 90 days apart, 6 years ago.

Do you have an accent?

What is the last movie to made you cry?
"The New World"

Plans tonight?
The usual...hanging out with my boys, fix their dinner, eat some yogurt, watch Ghost Whisperer & Doctor Who

Would you go back in time if you were given the chance?
I might, it depends.

Do you have any tattoos/piercings?
Pierced ears (2 in the left, 1 in the right); one tattoo & if I ever get back down to a weight that I can tolerate, I'll have it changed up a bit. Do NOT ask to see it! *ROFL*

Does anyone love you?
Yes. :) Thank Heaven!

Would you be a pirate?
No, but I think I married one...oh, wait, he's a biker..I guess that's pretty much the SAME THING! *LOL*

What songs do you sing in the shower?
Whatever is playing on the radio while I'm in there.

Yes a few actually - Wild Rose (for taking them to Sam's club - long story), Neal McCoy, & Doug Stone
