Meet Me on Monday #134

February 6, 2011


I’m doing this on Sunday night, while 99.9% of America is watching the Super Bowl. You wouldn’t BELIEVE the Internet speed I’m getting! lol


1. Did you watch the Superbowl?

Nope. Don’t have TV. The husband played it on the radio for a little while, but I wasn’t paying much attention. Why? See Question #2…

2. What is the last book that you read?

I took a break from working and blogging to READ. I have downloaded a ton of really good books lately, and am loving them all! I used to be such a voracious reader, but having a ton of little kids and working at home has cut into it. But I’m a bit more motivated now, lol. So that last book I read was the Letters of Susanna Wesley, and I am currently reading her biography, The Mother of the Wesleys, by John Kirk. It’s very good.

3. What is your favorite kind of cake?

ANY. Doesn’t matter if it’s chocolate, white, yellow, marble… I dislike the buttercream frosting, though. It’s too light and marshmallow-y. I like the “traditional” stuff.

4. Do you snore?

Well, I don’t know- I’m asleep during that time! :mrgreen:

funny pictures of cats with captions

By the way, my cat snores!

5. Do you play an instrument?

Yes, I taught myself guitar. I also piddle around on the drums. As a kid, I went to drama school in Manhattan, where we learned speech, acting, theatre history, singing, and dance. I loved singing. Whenever the school put on a show, they always cast me in the musicals. They said I was lousy at tragedy/drama, but I was good at comedy and recommended I go to music school for singing. Eh, I didn’t like the acting life, it is a really seedy business. So I quit it. I decided to go into radio, instead. Boy, that was so much fun!

I would love to learn piano, just to be able to play one piece: Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring. I LOVE that piece!

And thus ends another MMoM. šŸ™‚ I have wild, crazy plans to visit all 100+ participants, if I can do it! I’m gearing up for the big day– flexing my fingers, putting new batteries in my wireless mouse, fluffing the pillows for my chair. Wooohoo!

  13. Rebecca Says:

    Karen, believe it or not, I visited ALL the MMoM posts!! I think there are 148. Took me 3 hours. One blog wasn’t linked correctly, and one didn’t allow comments. But I commented on 99.9% of the blogs. Whew, I need a break!

  14. Rebecca Says:

    Hi Beverly! I later found out that a lot of other people used the same witty saying for their answer. And here I thought I was unique, LOL! Thanks for visiting. šŸ™‚

  15. Rebecca Says:

    Blueyes, I don’t taste the cake– any flavor– very much, anyway. It’s the frosting that counts, šŸ˜‰

  16. Rebecca Says:

    Hi Nicole! I went to your site and didn’t see the meme for this week. I hope you play next week! Thanks for visiting.

  17. Rebecca Says:

    Lin– All of a sudden, cat owners are confessing that their cats snore. I’d never heard of such a thing til I got LIvvy. What gives?!?! LOL

  18. Rebecca Says:

    Hi Donna! Thanks for your visit! Yes, we got rid of the TV for the kids; sakes. I just didn’t want them expose to the stuff on it. Thanks for your comment!!

  19. Rebecca Says:

    Thanks for stopping by.

    I really like your blog. Some entertaining stuff there.

    And you went to drama school? How cool is that? I’ve always loved music and movies, but I’m not gifted in that sense.

  23. Remnants Says:

    Yes, I am late reading MMoM…I barely make it to participate. LOL Monday/Tuesdays are long work days for me.

    2011 the year to read more. Great idea.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! Good for you for taking a break from blogging to read. I’ve only been at this for a month but I already feel like I need a break, LOL.

  29. Joshlin Says:

    I know I am a little late, but late is better than never right! I like the idea of not having a tv. I don’t watch it much anyway. Those books look interesting. I’m with you on the cake thing, but I am about to go on a diet so no more cake! I love the picture of the cat! Good for you for teaching yourself and I wish I could sing. I have been told the dogs cry when I sing. LOL!

  30. Jennifer S. Says:

    Thanks for visiting my blog, I love yours! I added itto my google reader! šŸ™‚
    I hope you have a great week, we are going to be almost 80 degrees later this weekend, not sure what to do with myself..

    Thanks for stopping by Bears at Home. I am repaying a few visits late but life gets in the way sometimes. The picture of the Cat reminds me of Smokey who comes wakes me by sitting on me and as close to my face as he can get. If I don’t respond to his soft meowing, he pats my cheek or bites my hair.

    I also checked out the ‘UP’ post. Saw a couple of scenes from The Doberman Gang. I really enjoyed that movie and had it on VHS at one time.
    I really liked the “UP” movie, too. I think it was a perfect one for the entire family.
    Hope your weekend is great,
    Mama Bear
