Monday Meme

Took this from here.

1.  If you were drafted from the military but could pick your branch, which would you choose?  Explain why.

I had briefly contemplated joining the military after high school, but decided I wasn't really ready to move away from home yet.  If I were to ever join, I'd probably go with the Air Force, because that's the branch my dad went into.

2.  What was the last thing you made from scratch in the kitchen?  

A mess, lol!  I don't do much cooking because I live by myself and it's just easier to microwave meals or make a sandwich or something.  With school and work, I'm busy and don't really have the time to make elaborate meals.  Plus I'm not much of a cook. I don't want to take the time, so if something says to heat the butter (or whatever) slowly, I turn the burner up so I'm not waiting on it any longer than necessary.  Or if I don't have a proper ingredient, I'll substitute something else which never seems to work out the way it should.   If I were cooking for someone else on a regular basis, I think I'd put more effort into it.

3.  Why did your parents give you your first name?

My father heard it somewhere or another and thought it was pretty.  I, on the other hand, think it's absolutely hideous!!!  I've used a nickname since 8 or 9th grade.

4.  Show and tell.  What comes to mind first when you see this picture?  Or tell a story if it reminds you of one.  
It reminds me of the squirrels that I like to feed on campus.  They hang out year round and I always have peanuts for them.  For some reason,I haven't seen very many this semester.

It amazes me sometimes how squirrels aren't afraid of people. I remember in college that they would come right up to us too!

Funny how often people don't like their parents' choice of names for them. My parents probably had a different kind of person in mind when they named me. Don't know what sort - but not anyone like me!

I thought about joining the Air Force for a week in High School but it was a brief thought. I cook like you do:) My name, I do not know why they picked it

Sorry it's taken me so long but I'm finally catching up!

Ha! Ha! I loved your answer to the cooking question! Oh my goodness, that sounds EXACTLY like me and I can so relate to everything you said! (even though I don't live pity my poor husband!!!)
