Let me ask you this...

1. Where do you fold your laundry?

2. Must you be sure the dishes are washed before you go to bed each night?

3. Do you use caller id to screen your calls?

4. Do you let the low fuel light come on in your car before you fill up?

5. Are you a registered voter?

6. Breakfast for dinner is one thing, but can you eat dinner for breakfast?

7. Do you click on the ads you see on people's blogs?

8. Do you just want to yell at smokers who are clearly standing within 50ft of the door at a restaurant?

I don't know where all of that came from...but I thought I'd throw those out there. I'd love to hear your are mine.

1. On my bed.

2. No. I wish I was that disciplined, but sadly, I'm not there.

3. I would say 'I plead the 5th' but in all honesty, I do. I do not answer calls from toll-free numbers or long distance numbers that I don't recognize.

4. Yes. If the light is not on, I don't need more fuel.

5. You bet. And every vote DOES matter. If you don't vote, you just 'voted' for the other guy.

6. No and it's strange isn't it?? Breakfast for dinner is fantastic!! But I dare say I could not eat a 'dinner' meal for breakfast. Except pizza, of course!

7. No...and I should...just cause I know it would pay them like 1/8 of a penny if I did.

8. Yes. Every.single.time. Nuff said.

Have a fabulous weekend, friends! :)

1.I don't really. I kind of fold the clothes for my own drawers and my husbands (though he has a basket of ready to wear stuff that we don't fold, just toss. The kids fold what thye feel need folded of their own and put their own away the way they want. I don't buy stuff that is easily wrinkled and never iron.

2. Nah. The kids are responsible for immediately emptying the dishwasher when it is clean then we all automatically load dirty stuff in. The big stuff gets washed once a week or so.

3.Don't really get a lot of outside calls except from family members--have a cell only.

4. Sometimes. My fuel light is quirky and doesn't always come on so not always.

5.Yes though sometimes I forget to vote because I never know what day it is.

6. I am a big fan of chocolate or cake for breakfast but since for me dinner is usually salad, no. Anything else is fine.

7. Yes but never Blogher ads.

8. Absolutely not. Poor things, as if legislating is going to make them stop. We are severely allergic to cigarette smoke but my daughter is also severely allergic to cinnamon--should everyone have to stop selling cinnamon scented things just because cinnamon scent can kill her?

1. Living Room
2. yeah right!
3. YES
4. NO
5. YES- if you don't vote then you have no right to complain on the issues
6. No
7. no, though I should
8. I haven't really seen any, though I'm sure I'd at least give them an ugly look if not say something. (can ya tell we barely go out to eat?:)

1. Usually on my bed. First I separate all the items into piles of whose they are, then I fold each pile.

2. With the advent of raising children, and in the attempt to train them to be good housekeepers, ahem, they do the dishes now. (But sometimes the dishes sit overnight.)

3. I screen when we're in school. I do check the caller ID before I answer the phone, but mostly so I know who it is before I answer. I hate it when I pick up and "someone" on the other end says "Hi!" expecting me to know by that one syllable who it is.

4. I get a little, okay, a lot testy when I think I may run out of gas. I have a little computer in my car that tells me how many miles I have in my tank. You would not believe how far I can drive when it says 0! Just don't talk to me when I am praying us to the gas station that is five miles away. I might yell at you.

5. I am currently waiting for my card to arrive in the mail. I had to change counties, and just found out I needed to re-register.

6. I don't think dinner for breakfast would be very good. Dessert, yes, but dinner, no.

7. I confess I don't really see the ads on other people's blogs. My eyes just go straight to the posts, and I don't see anything else.

8. I do the next best thing. I make a big scene of coughing and hacking, all the while waving my hands about to clear the air like I can't breathe. Sometimes when I go into a public bathroom where someone is puffing away, I'll holler over to whoever I went in there with and ask them if they are smoking. Usually this happens between me and Chris. She comes back with, "No, are you?." We yell back and forth about how, of course we aren't smoking in the bathroom. That's rude, and bad for the people around, cuz second hand smoke kills, and some people have asthma, and can't breathe when there's second hand smoke in the air. We really ham it up, and usually the guilty party slinks out of there quietly, and then we laugh about it. We're nuts.

1. On my bed.
2. The dishes must be clean and put away. Can't stand to wake up to a dirty kitchen.
3. I usually don't screen 1-800 numbers. They won't stop calling until you tell them you aren't interested.
4. My car doesn't have a low fuel light. So I usually fill up at the 1/4 full mark.
5. Yes!
6. I don't like breakfast food for the most part but I could totally eat a hamburger for breakfast. I could eat lots of dinner food for breakfast!
7. I only click on the ads if it is something that interests me.
8. I hate smoking period and wish it was banned from public. Something so stinky and offensive should only be done at home!

I will answer in complete sentences for your convenience...
1. I fold laundry either on the bed, couch or kitchen table.
2. When I was single, I NEVER washed dishes before bed
When I was married w/o kids, SOMETIMES I would wash dishes before bed
Now, MOST OF THE TIME I wash dishes before bed (or Billy does) an empty sink and clean sippy cups/bottles make my life easier.
3.I absolutely use caller ID. I don't have time to talk to anyone other than my friends/family.
4. I try not to let my gas light come on, but usually do.
5. I am a registered voter
6. I will pretty much eat anything, anytime.
7. I do not click on ads on blogs. Sorry.
8. I avoid confrontation at all costs. Its a major weakness of mine.

Regarding your comment on my blog, anyone who has me beat must have broken the rules if you catch my drift. We DID NOT break the rules, although we do get that question by complete strangers.

Are You Serious! said...

7. Nope

Great list!!! :)

Cheryl said...

1. Usually on the couch, with Gracie's "help"
2. Most of the time, but I have been known to let them go once in a while
3. Oh yeah!
4. No I am always afraid of running out with my baby in the car

6. No way, I don't want dinner for breakfast, but I love breakfast for dinner. My man can eat dinner for breakfast though.
7. Sometimes
8. Yes, but usually I just give a subtle cough

Love this idea, maybe you should make this a regular.

Tracey said...

I was looking on your side bar at the blogs you've redesigned and I've been thinking of finding someone to do this for me, but the question is money...How much would this run me? Thanks

Chris said...

1. I usually fold my laundry on my bed or on the kitchen table... or on the couch while watching Dr. Phil

2. I must be sure that the dishes are washed before I go to bed at night... I will write this 100 times and get back to you.

3. I ALWAYS use caller id to screen my calls. telemarketers and bill collectors are MEAN:)

4. I always let the low fuel light come on before I fill up unless I am heading out of town. I hate to have to stop in Ripley on my way to Iowa.

5. I am a registered voter, but I am bad about just voting in the "big" elections.

6. Dinner for breakfast..... EWWWW. Pie for breakfast; now you're talking.

7. I never click on the ads... don't really notice them.

8. Diane forgot to mention that the time we were "discussing" (code for talking at the top of our cancer ridden lungs) the people smoking in the bathroom was while we were camping. Bathrooms in campgrounds tend to have screens and be not-so-sound-proof. Inconsiderates in the next stall were teenagers... hiding from their parents. (oops:)

Smiling Shelly said...

1. In the den, on the sofa, where it continues to sit until it grows legs and walks to the respective rooms to be put away (or until it gets worn again which usually comes first)
2. Nope, and neither does my daughter - whose chore it is to do the dishes.
3. Yes, absolutely. I do not answer calls from numbers that I don't recognize.
4. Yep, don't know it needs gas until I hear that little bell.
5. Yes, I am but I guess I voted for the 'other guy' last time because I was so sick I didn't get to vote (I won't tell you if my choice won or not...I'll just make you wonder) BUT if I was on my death bed and it was voting day for a new mayor...I would drag my ass out just for the chance that my one vote might be the one to kick his ass out of office. (but I don't feel strongly about that or anything.)
6. Can not eat anything but breakfast for breakfast - no matter what time it is. If it's the first meal of the has to be breakfast.
7. No, sorry no time.
8. No, guess I don't notice.

Thanks - this was a fun one.
