Better Late Than Never

I thought I was going to sneak by without my normal "WOOOOO It's FRIDAY" blog this week, but I was wrong. On my Facebook wall late Friday night was a comment asking where my five questions were!  I was away from the computer (GASP!) Thursday AND Friday, so my online communication is falling behind. You didn't even notice, you say? Gr.

Anyway. Here it is. Five Question Friday Sunday.

1. Who is the better cook, you or your spouse?

First things first. I have not a spouse. Per say. Anyway, that aside, I do most of the cooking. I wouldn't say I'm a GREAT cook, but I do alright keeping the bellies full around here. I also take great pride in my cookie baking abilities. I make most of the meals, and wouldn't turn the duties over to Mr. Mr. even if I were given the choice. When it comes to taters, though, my man whips me in that area ;)  I'd prefer his mashed or fried potatoes any day. Part of that might be that everything tastes better when you don't have to cook it yourself, but most of it is the fact that he has mad tater cookin' skills :)

2. How often do you talk to your mom?
I'm not a phone talker. I was, once upon a time, but when the good ol' SMS message came onto the scene, I clammed up. Therefore, while I once talked to my mom every day, I now only talk to her when I'm driving or have something too long to text. We do, however, text daily. What? My mom texts? Heck yeah she does. It was rough at first, when she first realized she could communicate her every thought to me...immediately. I will never forget last year when I was snuggling into bed for the night. My phone was buzzing every 5 to 7 minutes. I finally got out of my warm covers and saw the eight Christmas Story quotes from my mama. :) As if I don't know it word for word anyway. But she's leveled out now and I am glad we can send quick messages daily.

3. Are you adventurous in the kitchen or stick to the recipe?
The recipe is my best friend. I even use the recipes I know by heart. Just to be sure. Once in a while I will make something of my own creation that has no recipe (like a few weeks ago when we were hungry and didn't have much to choose from and I made hamburger, egg noodles, and cream of mushroom soup [and used the exact soup recipe on the can ;)]), but mostly I stick to it.  I've never been much of an adventurer.

4. Is your second toe longer than your big toe?
Nope. My dad's big old toe cloned itself and stuck right to my foot, where it reigns supreme over all the other toes =/

5. Do you dress up for Halloween? (Bonus question: What will you be this year?)
I don't. Haven't since 6th grade (Lindsey and I skipped the Halloween dance to trick-or-treat, then kicked ourselves for choosing candy over boys). Except for Halloween 2008.  I dressed as a former, er, boss. What's weird is that for the costume I needed a blonde wig and four pairs of socks ;) I looked like a cross-dresser in kahki pants...and EVERYONE knew EXACTLY who I was. Mouths dropped at my audacity. Laughs were stifled when I stopped at the church party to see my mom. Oh yes, it was a grand Halloween. If you're friends with the "old" me on facebook, you can see the pics there. Still makes me smile.

Have a good night. See you tomorrow for Apron Strings.
