Clearing out the Cobwebs

It's 2:30 and...

...I'm still wearing what I woke up in.

...I'm just now curing my coffee jitters with some bites of lunch.  (Great.  Now I've gone and got peanut butter on my keyboard.)

...the breakfast and lunch dishes sit on the countertops and in the sink waiting to be loaded into the dishwasher.

..the toys are everywhere.

...the kids were good this morning and are now napping.

...I just pawned off my mini-grocery shopping duty on my husband.

Which means... Inbox is empty for the first time in weeks. (months?!)

...I've caught up on every single blog I subscribe to.

...I've spread a bit of comment love.

But now my brain is fried so thankfully Laura tagged me in a meme so I don't have to use up too much brain power to hammer out a well-written post.  Laura and I go way back to college days at UST.  When her son was born she joined the ranks as a Mommy Blogger.  I read every single post she writes and not just because I know her.  I'd read her anyway because of her hilarious way of reporting on the truth.  I need to say that because she's not on my Favorite Bloggers list but only because I haven't updated that in eons.  It's on my to-do list.  Here goes!

1) What's your favorite musical guilty pleasure?This is funny.  Because hubby has a music degree he usually rules the roost when it comes to the type of music we can buy and listen to in our house.  He dislikes musicians that don't write their own lyrics/music or who don't play an instrument or have a real band.  Which, if you were to go through a Top 40 list, eliminates 90% of popular music.

But recently, within the past year or two, I've decided to take a stand against him.  If I like a song he won't approve of, I just sing it louder and tell him I don't care what he thinks.  If a song sounds good to me, I like it.

So my guilty pleasures are all the songs I crank up for the kids when Brian's at work.  Right now we're on rotation with: Teenage Dream, California Girls, Cooler Than Me, Bad Romance, and, it still gets me going when I need a boost, I Gotta Feeling.  But when all else fails, Justin Timberlake always rocks my boat.  Or body.  Whatever.

2) Who is your celebrity crush?
As far as crushes go I always go for the bad boy.  Russel Crowe.  Dr. Alex Karev?  Yes, please.  John Mayer.  Or how about Jesse Kovacs from the latest Bachelor Pad?

All these guys would probably totally disappoint in a real relationship.  But that's OK.  My real guy is the farthest thing from a bad boy and will never disappoint.

3) If you were given $500 to spend on a meal, where would you go and who would you take?
I would take my real life crush and we would go back to Taka Sushi in San Diego.  To date it's the only meal I've had that I truly remember every single last bite.  It was that good.  Brian, if there was ever a time for you to comment on my blog this would be it.  Do you not agree wholeheartedly?

4) What's your season and why?
Summer.  Literally and figuratively.  If life mimics mother nature I'm definitely in summer.

5) What's the best thing you've won (give away, award, contest, whatever)
I don't generally win a lot of things but there two contests that stand out in my mind.  I won a photo basket through our local early childhood class that was worth at least $500 when all things were considered.

The second thing I won was a Mei Tai baby carrier through Metropolitan Mama.  I never would have bought this on my own but now that I won one I would have paid the $80-some three times over.  You could pretty much throw away every other carrier.  (Except the Ergo.  I haven't tried it but I've heard amazing praises.)  Lucy is going on one-and-a-half-years old and I still put her in it from time to time.  Almost four-year-old William even asked to go in it on my back the other day and it worked!  Love me my Mei Tai.

OK now it's my turn.  Here are my questions:

1.) What are you having for dinner tonight?
2.) What is your favorite and least favorite household chore?
3.) What's your middle name and is there a story behind it?
4.) If you could only use one piece of make-up for a week, what would it be?
5.) Who is a famous person that you've met or seen up close?
