Monday Mingle: February 7th, 2011



It's Monday again... time for all of the really cool bloggers to head on over to Jennifer's blog Eighty MPH Mom for Monday Mingle! What's a mingle, you ask??? Let Jen tell you:

"Each week three questions are asked, and you can answer via a written post, or a vlog post. If you have always wanted to try vlogging, Monday Mingle vlog meme is a fun way to try vlogging. If you’d like to join in the fun, answer the 3 weekly questions in short vlog on your blog, or a written blog post, then link up over at Eighty MPH Mom in the linky. Please post the above button within your post so readers can easily find other participants. Visit the other participants, learn about them and have fun! It’s not too late you can link up anytime during the week."

Here are the questions for this weeks mingle:

1. Which decade do you think would have been most fun?  I think I would have loved to live in the 60's - I watch old movies with Doris Day and it looks like SO much fun to go to all those parties and wear all those cool clothes - and the hats, I LOVE hats, but people don't wear them anymore. I would love to wear hats, but now I would just look silly.

2. On what TV show would you like to have a guest starring role?  I would have liked to have been either on the TV show "That Girl" (does anyone even remember that show???) or on "Friends" because they are both about young people starting out on their own and I never really had a chance to do that. I went right from living in my parent's home to living with my first husband at age 20. Then when I got divorced, I was living with two small children; then I got remarried and again moved with the kids to living with another man.  I never got the chance to live on my own and just have fun.  Not that I would trade my husband or children for anything - I love them dearly and would give my life for any of them, I just wonder what it would be like to not be responsible for anyone but myself.

3. What’s the strangest/weirdest thing you’ve ever done?  I won a spitting contest (yep, I know gross, right) off the top of a cruise ship into a garbage container on the dock.  It's a very long story that I don't remember, but I've seen it on video... Let's just say we were docked in New Orleans - 'nuff said! :)

Let's get lots of people to join in so that we can meet tons of people... how about we all tweet the following to get more followers for ourselves and all the other participants:

"Join Eighty MPH Mom for #mondaymingle- a fun meme to learn about you!"

OK, I had this post almost completely done last night (Sunday) but was falling asleep because of some cold medicine I took. {You should have seen the gibberish I was typing - HaHa!}  But then I woke up this morning to the blue screen of death!  ARGH!!!!  I spent all day trying to fix this damn computer... this is the 4th time I have had to do this with my laptop since I got it in November 2009. I will never get another HP laptop again. As soon as I get enough cash together - I'm getting a new one!!

I'm with you. 60's sound awesome! 50's would be cool too though.

This spitting contest sounds strangely intriguing. I'd like to see the video.

Ohh I love me some Doris Day... Beautiful hats, yes!!

Hurray for Friends :) I'd love to be on that show too.

LOL! Oh my... I can't spit long distance. Knowing my luck, I'd end up spitting into the wind. ;)

Boo on the BSOD. Those are no fun :( Have a great week, Lorie!!

YAY! Go 60's!
And I love Friends BTW.
Thanks for joining up again. Hope you are feeling better...

I grew up listening to Doris Day. Love her! My husband has laughed at my spitting lack of spitting skills since he met me. Yay you! I used to like Friends a lot too. I was single and it wasn't all that. A little fun but I love my life so much more now. Feel better soon mama!
