It's Monday. AGAIN. Meet Me On Monday #39

Yup, Monday's here all over again. 

Time flies when you're in the middle of a drama fest having fun. So, without further ado, here are this week questions as posted by Java at Never Growing Old.


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.

3. Siblings?

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!

Earrings used to do the same thing to me, finally I found some good surgical steel ones and those seem to work okay. Have a good, hopefully drama free week!

Hey Lana, nice to meet you! Thanks for your suggestion on my blog. I haven't ever thought about it, but you're right! I moved my followers list thingy much closer to the top.

I loved your info at the top. It seems as I get older, the stupider some people get, LOL!!! And that's me talking! Humor saves me. Among other things :) Have a great week!

What's really weird, we are totally alike.
I never wear jewelry,except my wedding ring.
Earrings were for highschool and later in my 20's I became allergic and my ears itched and got I stopped wearing them! It's certain metals.

I break the spaghetti in half while cooking and slurp, but I can do the other way too.

I'm the only child between my mom and dad, except I have a half-siblings and step siblings. Everyone's divorced.

I'm not named after anyone, but my middle name is Christine!

Ahh, but you broke me heart. COKE is disgusting. I was a Pepsi kid all the way...and not gross Diet Pepsi or Pepsi 1...real I guess we're the same about the "real deal."

We're both right handed but snap better with left hands...

HA- that is so funny! :)

Kathy said...

Our answers about jewelry are pretty similar. Thanks for stopping by my blog today--and by the way, watch DWTS next week because the guy you wanted to see did pretty darn good this week!

Jeffrey Beesler said...

Interesting factoids you've presented about yourself! I especially appreciate the one where you won't settle for cheap, imitation coke!

Copyboy said...

Wow! We so are at odds with the twirl cut controversy.

Ellie said...

What a fabulous way to start the week!

I love your header comment and your attitude to life. We seem very simliar.

p.s. I twirl my spaghetti and it's always coke for me.

Stephen Tremp said...

I like your header too. Why is it everyone becomes more stupid yet I become smarter. At this rate I'll be king any day now. And I prefer Coke too!

I'm also an only child. I always wished I had a sibling.
