Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. Cyril Connolly (1903 - 1974)


Monday Mingle: 10-04-09 ( Written)

If you'd like to join in the fun, do a short vlog on your blog answering the week's questions (however many you choose), post the above button on your site and link up at Eighty MPH Mom. Visit the other participants, learn about them and have fun! Trust me, if I can do it, then you can. Look down there at the amateur :) Come on jump in!
This week's questions:

1. What would you think about having our spouses vlog with us one week? Would yours make a cameo appearance?

I ask the hubs and he said he does not want to be in a video. So I guess that's a no. I can barely get him to be in a photograph anyway.

2. Do you have pets? Tell us about them!

No I don't have any pets. We are still thinking about what to get. Maybe when the kids are a bit older they'll decide. Cat's have hairball and you have to vacuum more and lint your clothes. Dogs poop everywhere...maybe a fish?

3. What are your favorite sayings or movie quotes?

Rhett Butler: "Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn!"

4. What is your favorite kind of music? Favorites bands/artists and songs? Best concert you ever attended?

I don't have a favorite. I'm a music freak and listen to anything that tickles my feet/rhythym. I've only been to one concert I think...that was in my country and it was a gospel concert. It was awesome.

5. What are your favorite drinks (alcohol or non)?

I've only had Smirnoff. I like Smirnoff. I want to try margaritas and mojitos. Dh doesn't drink so I don't even bother. We'll see. Right now I mostly drink water or sprite mix with water.

Today is written style for me. I just don't feel well. I'm sorry.

I hope you guys are having a great weekend and will roll into a calm Monday.


1. What famous person (movie stars, tv stars, musicians, etc.) have you been told you look like?

2. What were your favorite songs/bands in your teens?

3. What laws have you broken and gotten away with? (don't worry - we won't tell anyone - promise!)

4. Do you like games (board games, cards, etc.)? Which are you favorites?

5. When was the last time you laughed so hard that you cried?

6.  Speaking of crying - what movie(s) make you cry like a baby every time you see it?

  1. Oh you must try a margarita! Yum!

    I giggled at your husband's response. I doubt mine would be up for it either.

  2. Callie
    I am sorry to hear my friend that you are not feeling well! :(
    I hope it passes quickly and you will be back to your smiling self in no time!

    My husband doesn't play well on video's either - pictures with him are a pain to get. But I have my sneaky ways... tee hee
    Yes, pets are a lot of work, but I love mine dearly and can't imagine my life without them.
    OHHHH loved your favorite line in a movie - that is a classic!
    Hmmmm music that tickles your feet and rhythm - I like how you put that. I agree!

    Feel better my friend and soon!

  3. I just had a whole comment written and it wiped it out! Oh well - here goes again. I am sorry I missed your face this week...I hope you will feel better very soon...(hugs)

    Fish? They are cute, but you still have to clean their tanks/bowls (ick). Jennifer (Knitty) has a bearded dragon, Sheldon, and he is awfully cute and she says he is so friendly and affectionate. Just a thought!

    I hope we will see your lovely face next week - the face that makes me smile every, single time!

  4. Callie, feel better love!! You will also enjoy that margarita and mojito when you feel better, they are so good with spicy food, or just because. Oh and a fish would be a wise choice, if they die you just flush them, not a whole lot of cleaning or hassle.

    Feel better and we can't wait to see you again!

  5. You're giving me the freak out on the bearded dragon pet idea!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. Hi there,

    I enjoyed reading this post. I had not heard of this meme and it sounds like a fun way to get to know other bloggers..though I have yet to venture into vlogging. I may be behind the techno-times, but I'm just not that fond of myself on video, lol.

    Hope you are feeling well soon!

    I second the margaritas :D

  7. Oh, hope you are feeling better!!!
    When the kids get older, they can pick up after the dog. Mine do, and we do pay them for it. Not much, but they feel rich. =) And a dog is a good protector too! =)

  8. You could go the hamster route for a pet. They are a bit smelly though. I'd much rather clean out their cage than clean a fish tank though. Those are a pain.

    We have our dogs and cats and frankly, I'm loving the cats more right now. The dogs are a bit on the wild side. Our cats are funny and they talk to us. They also take really good care of themselves. And they have new indoor cat formula foods now that reduce hairballs!

    Oh! Your comment about Tivoli regarding my Monday Mingle - My inlaws named her for a city in Italy that they like very much.

    And drinks??? You know that I had a drink when we honeymooned in Jamaica that no one has ever heard of around here. Hummingbird. Got the recipe when we were there. It is SO GOOD!

    Hope you're feeling better!
