It’s that time again! Lidna over at 2nd Cup of Coffee hosts what is, IMHO, the most intelligent meme on the web. Every week she puts forward 12 thoughtful and thought provoking questions. This week Lidna is busy with a friend in need and Southlakes Mom stepped in to host the meme. Thanks, Kelley, we appreciate you! Kelley says, the theme this week is Spring . . . and any other random questions that caught her fancy.
1. What is your favorite sign of Spring?
2. Did you remember to spring forward on March 14? If not, how did it impact your day?
Yep. Amoeba changed all the clocks before bed. He was playing trumpet in the service and didn’t want to be late.
3. If soil, time, talent and climate were no problem, what vegetable would you plant in a garden this year?
4. If soil, time, talent and climate were no problem, what fruit would you plant?
Grapefruit. (The green beans I can do, the grapefruit is just a dream.)
5. What is your least favorite insect?
“God didn’t make any worthless creatures, but the mosquito comes close.”
6. March 22 was World Water Day. To celebrate, here are some water questions. Do you drink bottled water? If so, what brand?
No to bottled water — except the occasional splurge on Pelligrino when I cook a fancier dinner.
7. Have you ever been somewhere that it was not safe to drink the local water? If so, how did you handle that?
Yes, Guatemala. I didn’t drink it.
8. How many glasses of water do you drink per day?
Not enough, but more than I used to.
9. March 24 is the birthday of Harry Houdini. Have you ever watched a professional magic show? Share.
Lance Burton. It was interesting.
10. Have you ever been a participant in a professional magic show (up on stage!)?
11. March 24 is also the birthday of Steve McQueen and Clyde Barrow. Do you like Westerns or gangster movies? If so, what is your favorite?
I rarely watch movies. In the past I have enjoyed both gangster movies and westerns.
12. (Really random) What U.S. state that you’ve never visited would you like to visit someday?
All of them I’ve not yet visited! Alaska, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Maine, Maryland, New Hampshire, New York, Vermont, and Virginia; including the “not states”: American Samoa, District of Columbia, Guam, Northern Marianas Islands, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands.
