Meet Me On Monday - 10/25

I am absolutely adoring meeting all the bloggers that join in together at Meet Me On Monday which is hosted by the very lovely Java at Never Growing Old. It is pretty awesome learning more about each other, as well as learning that we all may be in different locales, many of us have quite a few things in common.

Aren't you interested in learning a little bit more about your fellow bloggers? Haven't you wanted to just share some silly little tidbits about yourself? Then come join the fun!

So here is a little more about me. :)

1. Do you sleep with a night light on?


No. I definitely do not. I thoroughly enjoy a dark and silent room. I have a husband who snores a bit so I deal with that by using earplugs (total and somewhat creepy silence yet I can still hear my alarm), and an eye mask can make for the total darkness. I also like to sleep with my head pillowized so there isn't much chance of light. When I was a child I was all about the night light, and in the 70s my parents hooked me up with this light which had a disk that would spin with the heat. Very trippy. It would change the room colors from green to blue to red to yellow and back again. No joke. At some point I got over the whole light thing. I don't exactly know when. I know when it wasn't, and that was sometime around when I read Stephen King's "The Shining." I had the nightlight on full force when I read that book. In fact if I could have made the room brighter when I read it, I would have!

Whoa...where was I?

2. What do you drink with dinner?


It depends on what we are eating. I jump from iced water to Koolaid. Every now and then I enjoy a Diet Coke. And in the summer it is all about fresh brewed iced tea!

3. Do you play the lottery? If so, how often?


Played it last night...lost. :( Dang lottery. My husband and I just play whenever we think about it. We were at the grocery store last night picking up some stuff to take to a friends house to watch MMA. While there we decided to pick up lottery tickets. Apparently about seven other people had the same idea just moments after us. It was a mad house, and to make matters worse, the dude next to me reeked of cigarette smoke. It is funny, I don't have issues with smoke (good thing since I worked in bars as well as a casino for years) it is the stale smell that gets me.

4. How often do you go to the grocery store?


I go to there at least once a week (usually take a cooler and hit them one after another). I shop all the loss leaders, use all my coupons, and menu plan like a champ. I have discovered that for me, it is THE best way to save money. Occasionally I will go to the store like I did the other night in order to pick up goodies for a hang-out night with friends.

5. Would you rather travel back in time 500 years or travel forward 500 years?


After looking at what was going down in 1510, I am going to have to say go forward 500 years. Well that is provided I can go back. With the great plague and whatnot going on, it wouldn't be too much fun, I'm guessing. Watching Henry the VIII rock the jousting world back in 1510 would have been pretty cool, but at 43...again, not as romantic as I might imaging in my teens. :) Knowing what I know now, I can't get past his rotundness and wife issues. ;)

You are really cool! I really liked that you checked out what was going on 500 years ago before answering the time travel question. That shows...well, I'm not sure what it shows :) but I would do the same thing!! But then... as you can see from my blog, I'm all about history! Lovely to meet you!

Donna @ The House on the Corner said...

Great answers!! I'd have loved the trippy night light!

Karen & Gerard Zemek said...

My dad used to leave lights on all through his house--for his cats! My husband is a Stephen King fan, but not me!

Stopping by from Meet me on Monday hop.

Yvonne said...

It's interesting how our thoughts change from our teen years as we age. Things might not seem as "cool" anymore. Loved reading your answers!

Amiko said...

I would love to have a watch like that.

Carrie said...

what a smart idea bringing a cooler and hitting all of the sales! and what the heck is a loss leader? I need more info. about that... we just got on the coupon bandwagon (I know, late to the party) and any info. will help. :)

Nichol said...

No nightlights for me either. And one day I'm hoping to hit the lottery, but before that happens I have to play.

Manzanita said...

Fun post and good thought provoking questions.
1. I've had a period when I slept with light on.... Thanks for reminding me... ha

2. Don't drink with meals.

3. I live in a state where gambling is legal. I love to play the lottery and the machines.

4. I go to the market about every 5 days. I shop 2 stores. Costco and the health food store. I eat organic food and now Costco has quite a few selected things.

5. I guess I'd go back 500 years. I'd feel safer knowing what's going to take place.

Have a whee of a week.... (that means a good one)

Great answers... love the details! The nightlight sounds like a hoot! Have a great week!


Vhen said...

hi, visiting back from Monday blog hop... =)

Debby@Just Breathe said...

I have night lights around the house but not in the bedroom. I don't shop too often, kids are grown so it makes a big difference.
My husband won the lottery a few years ago and shared it with our adult children. Have a good week.

I might just have to buy Ward a pair of earplugs to solve that snoring problem...

blueviolet said...

I'm with you. It has to be completely dark and completely quiet for me to sleep!

I'm at the grocery store at least once a week too!
