a bit of Monday Madness

...and actually on Monday for a change! Thanks OttO! I like these 'off the top of your head' ones!

1. Do you do dishes by hand or do you use a dishwasher? My dishwasher!!! It helps me keep the kitchen looking neat - theoretically! I do wash my 'stick-free' pans by hand because the dishwasher detergent & hot water makes them look dull and I feel they need to be seasoned again after.

2. How many people have your cell phone number? ...more than necessary. I gave it away to everybody during my 'broken foot period' and this one guy seems to have 'lost' my home phone number!

3. Do you shower in the morning or at night? Depends on what's happening the next day. Actually, if I have an early morning appointment, I prefer showering the night before because I have a difficult time moving in the morning.

4. Do you ever have a song 'stuck' in your head? Yes... for some reason I have a Christmas song that goes through my head a lot.

5. Do you pay your bills when they arrive, or do you wait until closer to the due date to pay them? When they arrive!!! I have in the past set them aside and actually had to pay interest on bills I pay in full every month! Don't like that so I pay early.

6. Are you obsessive about anything in particular? yes

7. What one thing would you say you have a zero tolerance for? Don't call me 'dear' or 'sweety' or 'honey' or any other condescending endearments!!! I'm a grownup. Doesn't my gray hair give you a clue?

I shower in the morning 363 days out of 365 (rough guess). Mostly because my hair looks like something from a horror flick in the morning so I would have to wet it down anyway. Might as well take my shower while I'm at it. Oh, plus, it helps wake me up. (wonder who I take after?) =)

Love you, Mom!

I shower most mornings too - for the same reason. Horror hair.

I was guilty of the "honey" dear thing when I lived in Virginia in the mid 80's. It was a habit I picked up from the people around me. I called everybody honey. Yikes! A habit I broke when I returned to Ohio.

I love you Mom - I call people who are younger than me sweety or honey if they are my waitress or waiter (or some other worker bee when i need their attention)because i think "miss" is obnoxious plus, I certainly don't want to call someone who is younger than me sir or ma'am. I guess i should answer these too. love you!
