Time flies when you're
1. What jewelry do you wear 24/7?
2. Do you twirl your spaghetti or cut it?
3. How many siblings do you have?
4. Were you named after anyone?
5. Coke or Pepsi?
And my answers are:
1. Jewelry 24/7?
I do not wear any jewelry 24/7. I used to wear rings, but with fluctuations in my weight due to medications and effects of chronic illness, most of them don't fit anymore. Necklaces only get tangled up in my hair and earrings make my ears itch and turn red.
2. Twirl or Cut?
Neither. I break the spaghetti in half when I put it in the water and then pick it up with my fork and slurp it. Much like my children. I went through a phase after watching "Moonstruck" where I thought I would be cool and twirl it up against a spoon, but that was too much futsing around for me.
None. I am an only child. However, I consider a couple of my very best girlfriends my sisters. One is also her mother's only child (her dad had several children from a previous marriage) and one has two sisters that are old enough to be her mother. So, I have adopted them as my "surrogate" sisters. I wonder if the fact that I was an only child has anything to do with how sensitive I am to my boys' incessant fighting? I didn't have anyone to fight WITH growing up. Except myself. And I'm pretty sure if that was happening, my parents would have sought professional help. I hope.
4. Named after anyone?
Yes. I am named after one of my mom's cousins. Her name was Lana (pronounced Lah-nah) and my name is Lana ("a" like apple La-nah - like Lana Turner. My hair is red too! Hubba hubba). Middle name Kristine, after my mother, after my great-great aunt Kjestina (she came from Norway with her parents when she was a wee one).
5. Coke or Pepsi?
coke! definitely coke. And not that sissy diet or zero stuff. Classic, all the way!
And that does it for this installment of Meet Me On Monday! Do come play!
