I got the new Get to Know Your Friends in 2010 email the other day. From my mother. And she indicated I would be the one least likely to respond. What? Me? 

I've gotten really good at keeping my inbox clean this year (more than 10 messages in my inbox and I start getting all twitchy) and it struck me while re-reading her email (and hovering over the delete key) that this is good, mindless blog fodder. So I scheduled this to post while we're out enjoying the great outdoors. You're welcome. And you're welcome to play along! Or just skip this post altogether.

What color are your socks right now? No socks. Just my bare feet.

What are you listening to right now? Jack-the-beagle snoring and the click of the keys on my keyboard.

What was the last thing you ate? Blueberries.

Can you drive a stick? Yes. Let's just say that the learning process was quite comical.

Last person you spoke to on the phone? My sister

How old are you today? 40

What is your favorite sport to watch on TV? College football!!! And it's almost time.

What is your favorite drink? Dr. Pepper

Have you ever dyed your hair? Do highlights count?

Favorite food? Mexican. Or Chicken Bryan from Carrabbas. Or seafood. Actually, I just love to eat!

What is the last movie you watched? You mean from start to finish? I guess it was All About Steve. I love Sandra Bullock.

Favorite day of the year? Why the 4th of July of course!!!

How do you vent anger? I usually spew, but I don't recommend that.

What was your favorite toy as a child? Hmmmm. How about Dressy Bessy.

Favorite Season? You really have to ask? SUMMER!!!

Cherries or Blueberries? Cherries

Living situation? Loving life with the peeps God has given me. And I'm working on Home: Part III this week.

When was the last time you cried? Father's Day. It was a tough day.

What is on the floor of your closet right now? Hand weights, tennis shoes (that aren't seeing much action these days) and some craft stuff I bought for the kids to do at our block party next weekend.

What are you most afraid of? Take your pick of snakes, spiders, germs, and bridges.

Plain, cheese, or spicy hamburgers? I guess plain. I usually always order mustard, lettuce, pickle, and onion. No cheese.

Favorite dog breed? Ummmm, beagle?

Favorite day of the week? Saturday. But only if I don't have a busy Saturday. If it's busy, then I usually like Sunday better.

How many states have you lived in? Three. Arkansas, Texas, and Colorado.

Diamonds or pearls? Diamonds.

What is your favorite flower? I like lilies.

Did you get an H1N1 vaccine? Nope. I've never had a flu shot of any kind.

Your first father's day w/o him and I forgot to text you. :( I know it had to be hard.

Love that you're camping and giving us these little tidbits. We can still be very good friends; however, the fact that you don't order cheese on your burger is about as odd as you not liking chocolate. Just sayin'.

Dressy Bessy? Never heard of it. Must check out your link.

No cheese? Are you lactose intolerant? (which is akin to I totally cannot relate to that! cheese is almost better than dessert, but doesn't come close to coffee.)

I generally skip those e-mails also, but you're right about blogs being a good option to share. :)
