Meet Me on Monday #42

April 10, 2011


Short and sweet this week. I’m not looking forward to this week very much. It will be crazy busy and my daughter is scheduled for oral surgery. Please keep her in your prayers, would you?


1. Who would be your dream celebrity date?
???? I don’t like this question. I’m married and have no intentions of straying not even in my mind or heart. Next question, please….

2. Do you have any food restrictions?
Just about all of it. LOL. For every calorie listed on a label, my body counts double. Some folks have said it might be a thyroid problem, but I don’t really want to mess with doctors. Since I’m pretty healthy anyway, I’m not too concerned. But I really have to watch what I eat, or I’ll gain weight very quickly and it won’t come off. I try to restrict myself to about 800-1000 calories a day, and that is probably too much!

3. How much time do you take to get ready in the morning?
Well, I work at home. So…. sometimes I don’t even GET ready in the morning! Haha! I’m a member of the pajamahadeen! However, I always feel funny if I don’t get dressed in the morning, so I usually do. And when I do, it takes me about 15 minutes to get everything ready for the day.

4. Sausage or bacon?
Whatever. Sausage, maybe. It seems to have less fat (less obvious fat, that is). I never eat breakfast, so I don’t have sausage or bacon very often. I always feel kinda lousy after eating it, too.

5. Do you Google, Bing or Yahoo?
I use Google and Scroogle. I like Google’s simple, streamlined look. Yahoo is too confusing, with different fonts and sizes and colors everywhere. Scroogle is just like Google except that it does not monitor and store your searches. I greatly dislike Google for their Big Brother actions, but I use them mostly for work.

    Man, I hate oral surgery. šŸ˜› I’m supposed to get all wisdom teeth removed surgically. All for one low price of around $5,000. BTW, with Scroogle, I’m convinced that it’s just to get all the “evil” searches into one list. šŸ™‚ It only seems logical for Google to do that. Whatever the case, I’m not convinced that Google’s #1 objective is customer satisfaction. LOL

  2. Renee Says:

    We’ll definitely keep your daughter in our prayers. I wouldn’t be looking forward to oral surgery, either. In fact, when my wisdom teeth came in, I just let them do their thing, and they messed up my teeth that were already straightened by braces. At least you can’t really tell…
    Do you mind if I ask which daughter is having the surgery?

  3. Jo-anne Says:

    Another search engine I’d never heard of. I might have to check them out.

  4. Rena Says:

    Oh dear, will definitely pray for Alice.

  5. blueyes Says:

    Never heard of scroogle.

    Hey Mike: There is no way 4 wisdom teeth removed is the cost of 5K – go find another oral surgeon because that’s a complete rip off. I had 2 of mine removed under anesthesia because I’m allergic to the Novacain and it only cost a couple hundred bucks here.

  6. Carole Says:

    I hope everything goes smoothly for your daughter and hopefully she’s not too stressed or fearful over the surgery. (I hope you aren’t either šŸ™‚ I too have never heard of Scroogle and will have to check that out…I’ll ask my brother if users really go on an “evil searchers” list, ha ha! šŸ˜›

  7. Rebecca Says:

    Mike- thank God for insurance. But we got a much lower quote. I don’t understand what you mean about Scroogle… they are technically a Google search engine (using their algorithm. I think, but removing the code that tracks searches and users. I once had a Firefox plugin that did the same thing, but it’s incompatible with 4.0. :-p

    Thanks for your comment!

  8. Rebecca Says:

    Hi, Renee…. šŸ™‚ I wish we could let these teeth do their thing! I would much prefer to let them through naturally, but looks like that isn’t going to happen.

  9. Rebecca Says:

    Hey, Joanne! Thanks for your comment. The appearance of Scroogle is a little plain. But the searches are like the Google kind.

  10. Rebecca Says:

    Thank you, Rena. šŸ™‚ XOXOXO

  11. Rebecca Says:

    Carole, thank you! I’m surprised at how anxious I feel about it. I have had surgery before (and was scared then, too!) but this is one of my BABIES. I’m anxious by nature and I’m always battling it. Remember that scripture from Revelation I once shared with you? I’m leaning on that a lot right now.

  12. Alexis L. Says:

    Boy, do I understand the calorie problem. I’m the same way, I’ll gain weight very quickly if I don’t watch it.

    My son had his wisdom teeth out this past summer and it went great. It was much easier than I remember when I had mine out. Just be sure NOT to use a straw and keep wet tea bags on the incision site. Straws bring in air and she can get a dry socket which can be really bad.

    Good luck! Let us know how she is doing. Colin was down for a day or two and that was it–so she should be fine in a short time.

  14. Rebecca Says:

    Lin, thanks for the encouragement and advice. I told my daughter, who is comforted to know that Colin survived!!! šŸ™‚
