Monday Mingle – November 2nd


Because I’m still too much of a chicken to get on cam I’m cheating slightly and doing the Monday Mingle from Eighty MPH Mom blog style instead 😀

1. Tell us a joke!

Donald Rumsfeld is giving the president his daily briefing. He concludes by saying: “Yesterday, 3 Brazilian soldiers were killed.”

“OH NO!” the President exclaims. “That’s terrible!”

His staff sits stunned at this display of emotion, nervously watching as the President sits, head in hands.

Finally, the President looks up and asks, “How many is a brazillion?”

2. How old are you?  We are all friends here – we won’t tell!

28, 29 in April – not so happy about this edging on 30 thing.

3. Do you like to dance? Are you a good dancer?

No and No, not at all. I’ve always wanted to learn something other than modern dance though such as salsa – sassy dancing seems more my style 😀 On a separate note, as a child I took ballet for years and hated it. The day that my teacher fell down the stairs and broke her hip I literally jumped for joy – what an evil little child I was 😀

4. What were you for Halloween? Your kids?  Do you do anything special for Halloween?

We didn’t celebrate Halloween this year, not for lack of enthusiasm but we have no children and no one does trick or treating around our area – I’m talking ZERO children at our door which makes me extremely sad. We have vowed that next year, in our new place we will celebrate every holiday with decorations, fancy dress and friends to keep us company – we are literally building new lives, how exciting!

5. What was your favorite subject in school?  Subject you hated?

I liked foreign languages because I was good at them, I also liked art, not because I had any particular artistic talent but mostly because it gave me free reign to express myself…and it didn’t involve numbers or commas 😀

6. Get someone else to do a Mingle!

Someone? Anyone? I admit to a lack of bloggy friends since my blog is still pretty new so if someone would like to accept an invitation to a Monday Mingle go for it!

    That joke is hilarious!! I am so glad you joined us. I was SO CAMERA SHY too, but for some reason doing the vlogs didn’t bother me at all, and I am shocked. It gets easier every week too. I think you are so funny…please think about it okay?

    Art rocks. LOL. I agree – it’s best because it doesn’t involve numbers and commas…so true!

    We didn’t do anything for Halloween either. I felt sad too. My kids are too old and we don’t get trick or treaters either, so it seems kind of pointless to do much. I miss it.

    Thank you again for joining us – I hope we will see you next week!

      Isn’t that joke awesome? My best friend (aka Queen Bee) told it to me while we were in Vegas earlier this year and I laughed so hard I almost wet myself. It’s not even the political aspect because I am oh so far from being politically savvy but the mental picture it gives you is classic.

    LOL Good joke!

    Ohh please *try* a mingle in front of the camera. Record just one question. See how it feels. Dip a toe in the water. No sharks, I promise.

    I thought I’d hate doing vlogs, but it turns out it’s super fun! 🙂

    Happy Mingling…

    Wow, evil child is right, lol. Although I may have laughed too if I was you. It’s so sad living in a place where no trick or treaters go to. It’s depressing. We used to live someplace where noone dared go. Now that we have trick or treaters we decorate and celebrate the heck out of it!

      It is depressing to have no trick or treaters! I can’t wait to move so we can see all the cute costumes and I can decorate our new place! I miss the fun celebrations being tucked away in what resembles a retirement community. Not that there is anything wrong with retirement communities and they certainly have their perks (first to get electricity back when there is a black out!) but I miss the life of the younger crowd!

    Get on cam! It’ll be great, I promise, and you’ll end up loving it. Your personality is 99% of a successful mingle and the blog style shows you’ll be great at it.

    SEE you next week. Right?

      Boy, talk about peer pressure LOL I have decided to give it a shot. Buzz told me last night that if I expect to be successful in grad school I’m going to have to talk in front of people all the time so I might as well get used to it, as much as I hate to admit it he’s probably right so *holding breath* see you next week!

    I love the joke! Now which president was it? LOL

    I know you’ll come out and surprise us one day with the camera 🙂

    I’m so glad you mingled though and sometimes I just feel like writing too because I might not be feeling well or just dont’ have space to vlog.

    I want to learn the quickstep. I LOVE dancing! It’s in the bones 🙂

    We are the same age. I’m still 16 though 🙂

    I’m late but here. I hope you are enjoying the week!
