Meet Me on Monday

I'm running late, and taking advantage of the fact that I have not yet gone to sleep to declare it still Monday, (even though it probably isn't but I am Mummy, and I make the rules so "Hi Monday!")

I've been tapping away at this blog for a few months now, and as I settle into my routines, and find my way in the big wide world of the internets, I forget that even though I talk to you like I've known you forever, I actually don't, and you don't know a heck of a lot about me except that I'm pretty good at freaky emo rants and oversharing. And that the husband to be is a Procrastination King (yes, it does require both CAPITALS and an underscore).

Therefor, in the interests of developing my overshare reflex, and letting you in on who is really behind all this nonsense, I'm joining JAVA @ Never Growing Old for Meet Me On Monday*

*That is when I don't forget, or have a Major Monday Meltdown rendering me incapable of coherent thought until it's times for fruity beer on Hump Day.

This weeks questions and answers are below:

1.  Does your family/friends know about your blog?

Yes, but most pay no attention, or have no idea what I am talking about. When I mentioned I was going to a blog conference (DPCON12 YEAH!) my mother looked at me like I had mentioned having a limb amputated for fun. She thinks I'm nuts. I have a couple of friends who read, although most don't, and I don't push it because someday I might want to have a good old freaky rant about one of them and then i would have to be all PC, tactful and delicate, which is not my for-tay.
2.  What is your favorite card game?

Pennies from Heaven - which is a much more interesting and fun version of Canasta and I'm dying to make some new friends who will appreciate the joy of a night around the card table, full of wine and laughter. I played many hours of Pennies from Heaven with my FIL before he died and they remain some of the best hours of my life. I would love someone to teach me Bridge but I really live in the wrong century for that to be likely.
3.  What do you wear to bed? 

PJ's in winter, knickers and singlet in summer. I never used to wear anything, but part time cosleeping with Frog changed that. Also WonderMan always seems to be 5 degrees hotter than me so I don't need much as it is like having a personal in bed heater. I sometimes wear socks when he complains about me warming my poor frozen feet on his buttocks.
4.  What is your favorite kind of French Fry?

What eez thees French Fry? Oh you mean CHIPS. I like them thick and golden, we call them steak chips. But they have to be piping hot, and cooked to perfection - golden and crisp on the outside, light and fluffy on the inside. I am a chip nazi.
5.  What is your usual bed time?

I try to be in bed by 10pm, but am rarely asleep before midnight unless I am trying to fend off advances of the "wandering hands" variety. I generally fall asleep with a book in my hand, which has been known (on regular occasions) to slip and hit me in the face. WonderMan quite often wakes up at 1am, removes the book from my hands and tips me over onto my side because I am dead asleep sitting up.

So there you have it. 5 more things you probably didn't know, or didn't need to at any rate!

I'd love to Meet You on Monday too! Join the linky below


  1. It's still most definitely Monday here in the UK so you are safe.

  2. Oh I'm dying to learn how to play bridge too. I am such a nanna! Would love to learn Pennies From Heaven too. I can't wait to meet you in person next year x

  3. Just connected with you through MMOM. Your insights made me smile. Drop on by for a visit when you have nothing to do, (that's a joke.)

  4. My family knows about my blogging, but I don't think they read it much. As long as they don't start reading any other blogs and ignore mine I won't complain.

  5. @pinkoddy - thankyou for validating my twisted logic ;)

    @Sarah - When we one day holiday over west we must get someone to teach us Bridge :) I can't wait either!

    @ArtyMarti Welcome! I'm glad I can make you smile!

    @mostraum Reading others and ignoring mine would definitely make me stabby :P

  6. I would love to have friends who have time and the desire to play card and board games again. It has been ages since I've played anything. I've also never played Pennies from Heaven, I'd be a willing learner.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day.
