Stuff You Really Don't Need to Know

randomness…feed your mind and your blog

This week marks the 100th post of the Randomness Meme. Here’s this week’s questions:

1. What’s your favorite ice cream flavor?
I was once treated to a Grand Marnier ice cream cone . . . way back in 1991 when I was working in the Canadian Rockies as a breakfast waitress/chambermaid. I can't even remember the name of the town or the little ice cream shop that we discovered somewhere in the middle of the winding mountain roads, but this place made their own ice cream and, since I'm a huge fan of Grand Marnier (the flavor, that is; I've never actually consumed real Grand Marnier), I immediately chose that flavor for my ice cream cone. Unfortunately, I've never found that flavor anywhere else on this planet. It was a one-time indulgence. So good!

2. What shampoo do you use?
Daily Moisture Renewal
I wish I could insert here that I use something from the salon, but truthfully, I can't justify spending that kind of money on myself. So, I am currently using (and usually use), Pantene, either for blondes, or at the moment I'm using the Pro-V Daily Moisture Renewal formula. I like it, but I prefer John Frieda's shampoo for blonde hair. I actually prefer all of John Frieda's hair products over Pantene's . . . but for the past little while it's come down to a number-crunching game for me; therefore, Pantene is what I currently use, because it's cheaper.

3. How do you like your eggs?
I do not enjoy eating the yolk separate from the white, so that leaves me with limited options. For hot eggs I prefer scrambled or an omelet. And if I eat a hard-boiled egg, it must be in the form of either egg salad or part of a potato salad. The only time I will actually eat an egg any other way is when it is poached and becomes part of Eggs Benedict. I love Eggs Benedict!

4. What’s the first thing you do when you get online?
I check my blog for comments and traffic reports. After that, I check out my Facebook account, for messages and notifications.

5. What is your favorite TV show?
Cast Photo
This is kind of tricky for me, so I'm going to categorize my response so that I can provide you with five favorites. For reality T.V., my favorite show is What Not To Wear. For comic relief, my favorite show is Seinfeld. To get my dose of weekly drama, I have to say it's a tie between House and Grey's Anatomy. I must also mention here that I would love to own the entire collection of Little House on the Prairie. When I was growing up we didn't have this show on our limited selection of television stations, but a couple of years ago my friend lent me the first two seasons on DVD and I fell in love with the show. I'd have to say that above all other television series, Little House on the Prairie would have to rank as Number One.

6. Which do you prefer, the sunrise or the sunset?
Sunset Wallpaper

7. When is the last time you went to the mall?

Plastic Shopping Bag
About two months ago my best friend and I spent an evening shopping together. We hadn't done that for at least ten years, so it was a lot of fun. I, however, was attempting to buy clothes, which wasn't a whole lot of fun because nothing fit properly.

8. What was the last food that you ate?

I just finished eating my breakfast, which consisted of a homemade toasted bun with butter. My drink? A diet grapefruit pop. Really healthy, I know.

9. What is your favorite animal?
Polar bears
Anyone who knows me well will already know this, but I really love polar bears. I also really love dogs. So, my favorite wild animal is a polar bear. My favorite domesticated animal is a dog.

10. Do you collect anything?
How to run your home
Yes, dust. I am forever having to dust my house. Our acreage is located along a very busy grid road and it seems that all the dust that flies off that road ends up in my house, mostly in the living room, where I have glass-topped end tables and coffee table, plus a piano and a wooden rocking chair. These items all collect a lot of dust. And because we have hardwood floors, dust bunnies are forever accumulating on the floor. I could spend all day dusting my house. But I don't. Other than that, I don't really have a collection, other than the Coca Cola paraphernalia that my husband has accumulated over the years, which is now in the process of being added to our family room in the basement we are currently renovating. It's our "Coca-Cola Room".

Oh Kimmy, you and I would get along famously. Every morning as I get ready for work I watch Little House. I can't believe I didn't put that down for mine. I can practically quote every single episode word for word. My family gets annoyed with me! Did you read the Little House books? I have them all and occassionally get them out now for some light reading. My girls never enjoyed them as much as I do. Also, have you ever watched Anne of Green Gables? I love the books too,and I laugh so much when reading them or watching the movie.

Thanks for doing the meme. That took some work girl finding and posting the pictures!
