KYKM–The March 2011 Edition

Yay! Shannon saves my blog-blocked day with her somewhat regular edition of Knowing You Knowing Me.  Do join in with comments or with official play and linky so that I know that someone reads this thing from time to time.  (My inner narcissist seems to be clambering for attention again.)

1. Do you consider yourself a foodie?

Well, not a big foodie but I really do like to eat good food.  That would be why my middle is expanding and I can’t say no to fresh baked goods or stuff with chocolate in it.  I am getting more particular though.  I’ll take dark chocolate over milk chocolate prefer to dine on meals that take longer than 10 minutes to make.  Does that count?  And I am taking my very first real cooking course in a month at Urban Element – both exciting and terrifying.  But they serve wine so I’m sure it will all work out.

2. Are you a spender or a saver?
Hmmm.  I’m not sure as I am not good at either.  Probably more of a spender but my guilt keeps me from spending oodles of money on myself.  I can buy tons of useless things for the kids, no problem.  I think I need to work on that.  Luckily my DH does a good job with the saving and anything requiring responsibility.  Otherwise my procrastinator ways would get me in deep doo-doo.

3. What was the last movie you saw?
Watched “Becoming Jane” last night with my mom.  ‘Twas rather P&P-ish – no surprise.  However, a lovely diversion and the sort of movie I don’t mind watching with my mom when she’s been visiting for several days and I have run out of sensible conversation.

4. What is the closest book to you?
Does the Cub Handbook count?  Being mom-of-the-year, I am working on making Owen earn another badge.  It is a lot of work for me having him in Cubs!  Reading Left Neglected for a book club which is the book on my bedside table, a little further away.

5. Do you celebrate St. Patrick's Day?

Sort of.  We aren’t Irish but it is tons of fun to wear green, drink a brew and sing Irish shanties.  We have somehow started a tradition of having the kids do a treasure hunt throughout the house and find clues to a “ pot of gold” – a black bag filled with chocolate coins and other dollar store crap.  Fun to watch the enthusiasm.  We ate green stuff (mostly veggies) last night and I bought little St. Paddy’s day cupcakes to amuse them. 

How about you?  What would you answer to these questions?  Do comment below.


  1. I'm reading Left Neglected too!

  2. You're also reading Come Thou Tortoise. At the speed of one -- ha, I kill me. I will do this tomorrow -- I realized today that I hadn't done the 'Angus's hair' post yet.

  3. i love you answer to number 3. a good movie is always on the ticket when my mom is down as well!

  4. Oh I would love to go to your cooking course...mmmm wine... :)
