Meet Me on Monday #23

November 23, 2010

Blabber, Fun

It’s time for me to be tardy with another meme! Here are the questions for this week…


1. How many pillows do you sleep with?

I am a pillow hoarder. My whole family has been nuts about pillows. I think it’s because of my step-dad. He always had a ton of pillows, a ton! He would sit like a Sultan on his bed of pillows and order us kids around. lol. He was a diabetic, so he used a lot of pillows to keep his legs elevated.

Me, I sleep with four pillows. Yep! And I have three on standby. 😉 I sometimes use a wedge pillow, and I also have a very long “body” pillow, too. I’ve always slept with two pillows, but after straining my back and going on bed rest for a few months, a couple years back, I surrounded myself with pillows to support my back. It just feels so good, I kept all the pillows!

2. Where will you eat on Thanksgiving?

At the dinner table. :grinny:

3. Would you rather go to a party or host a party?

I’d rather not go to any party. I’m not much of a socialite. Every year I think I may go to BlogHer or BlogWorld or something, but then I think of all the crowds and the noise and not knowing hardly anybody…. and I chicken out. I’ve never liked parties. But if ya pinned me down and I had to choose, I’d rather go to a party than host one. That way, I can leave when I want. And I also won’t have to clean the house before guests arrive….

4. How many purses (for the guys..wallets) do you own?

I was never a “purse” person up until 6 or 7 years ago. Now, I’m a purse MANIAC. I have about FIVE of them! My favorite one is a tiny, tiny iPhone purse. It’s basically a small white wallet with straps. It fits my phone and my cards, and that’s it. I like traveling lightly.

5. What is your favorite kind of seafood?

Scallops. No, no wait– SHRIMP!! No, NO wait— FLOUNDER! Oh wait– I think it’s definitely SALMON!!!

    If possible I would like to sleep with lotsa pillows 🙂 too. But because I’m in the Phils. right now, we ‘re not celebrating Thanksgiving because this is not a holiday for us. I’d like to host a party as well as attend a party. I’m not a bag hag either.
    My fave seafood is well, bangus (milkfish) and mostly Southeast Pacific Ocean ‘s sea catch like Bilongbilong (moonfish), Malasugui (Black or White Marlin), Lapu-lapu (Grouper).etc…I love fish and I could eat fish every day which I cannot do in the US. I also love Sharksfin and Lobster.
    Anyway, Happy Thanskgiving!

    I only have 2 pillows. Joe has 2, but he loses them and then he wakes up with a stiff neck. Which always amazes me–how do you not know that your head is just uncomfortably flat on the mattress and wouldn’t you wake up and solve that problem???

    I think I like hosting and going to parties equally as well. I spent many years stuck in the house and not doing things with other couples because we spent all those years with the kids. Not that I minded, but gees, we are having fun going out now that they are grown! I don’t like parties where I don’t know anyone–I only like the ones with good friends that I can be myself with.

    LOVE purses! They ALWAYS fit–not like clothes. 🙂

    Cool Meme 🙂
    I´ve always preferred just one small pillow otherwise I would wake up with a pain in my neck that would last all day. Last year I (finally) bought a long wanted feathers pillow. In fact, I bought 3 and they´re so soft that now most times I use two (bought them after divorce, hehe)
    We don´t celebrate thanksgiving in my corner of the world.
    I´m not a socialite too so like you I´d rather attend a party…I woudn´t have to clean before guest arrive and afterward 🙂
    I have a couple purses but only I only use the last one I bought…a bit like handbags.
    Ohhh…seafood (insert mouthwatering here)…bring them all! (except some type of clams and oysters).
    Hugs xx
