I have a few minutes so


Today's Question:

Who will be watching the Superbowl tomorrow ?


Me !!!!

Will anyone be hosting or going to a SB party ?

We are having my very good friend mawipafl and her hubby over to watch the game with us


Any special SB snacks you will be looking forward to ?

Is beer considered a snack

Actually I have a bunch of snacks planned, mozzarella sticks,potato skins,hubby's special hot cheese dip, etc ...


Bonus Question:

What is the fastest you have ever driven ?


Maybe 80 once or twice while on a highway and the speed limit was 75

What is the fastest speed a vehicle you have been a passenger in has gone?

Well I am famous for my "ahem ahem" should hubby be driving and the speed starts to creep over 80

Many many years ago my friend borrowed his Mom's Jag(she was out of town) and he got it to 120 on 95 in Phila that was a little nerve wracking I hadn't added "ahem ahem" to my vocabulary yet


Extra Credit Question:

Have you ever trimmed or cut your own hair ?


lol my poor hairdresser I often trim my own bangs then she "fixes" them I have also been known to take a snip now and then should there be a few hairs that get in the way

How about someone else's ?

I remember once back in the 70's my brother had long hair and I used a razor blade to give it a trim needless to say I knew then that hairdressing was not one of my talents


Just for fun :

Brussel Sprouts yay or nay
- rofl yeah right like thats going to happen

This is not a super bowl household....it may get turned on at some point...but probably not for long....the Obama inauguration was our super bowl! The Acadamy Awards are also a big TV night in our house......I might make a hot crab dip for that.

What is the fastest you have ever driven ?


I am not a fast driver....never have been....but when I was a teen ager...I might have pushed my old jalopy to its maximum speed of about 90 mph and hoped it didnt rattle itself to death and fall apart.


What is the fastest speed a vehicle you have been a passenger in has gone?

If you mean a car....probably not over my record of 90mph.....on a shinkasen bullet train....about 160 mph.



Extra Credit Question:


Have you ever trimmed or cut your own hair ? Yes and not to the benefit of my appearance.

How about someone else's ? I used to cut my sons hair when they were small.


Just for fun :

Brussel Sprouts yay or nay
Love them!

How many rolls of scotch tape are in your home ? about three....one that I know where it is.

Today's Question:

Who will be watching the Superbowl tomorrow ? I will (see K with a K's post).

Will anyone be hosting or going to a SB party ? Going to a party (see K with a K's post).

Any special SB snacks you will be looking forward to ? Hot cheese dip (see K with a K's post).


Bonus Question:

What is the fastest you have ever driven ? 90 -- lesson learned that incorrect tire size can wreak havoc on the speedometer.

What is the fastest speed a vehicle you have been a passenger in has gone? Not sure, and I probably don't want to know. Like K with a K, I also have "ahem ahem" in my vocabulary.


Extra Credit Question:

Have you ever trimmed or cut your own hair ? Yes, all the time.

How about someone else's ? My husband's once (and, um, never asked to do so again.) My sister's when I was little (and yup my mother wasn't too happy). My daughter's when she was young, and for some strange reason she doesn't let me near her with scissors now that she's older and cares about style.


Just for fun :

Brussel Sprouts yay or nay Nay

How many rolls of scotch tape are in your home ? Two, plus, of course, rolls of masking tape in different widths, multiple rolls of packing tape, painters tape (you know, the blue stuff), and of course my McGyver duct tape.

Morning all-

Yes we will be watching the SB-it's the one time I watch, Mr. L watches every game there is.

It will be just us-we were asked to join a group at the local Cheers but I prefer the comforts of home.

No snacks planned.

Fastest-I guess I've hit 85 - 90 back in the day and commuting on the Garden State Pkwy in NJ that's average.

Other fastest-Mr. L had a Shelby and we hit 120 once-only once, my knuckles are still white and that was 40 yrs. ago.

Brandy Alexander's used to be my favorite.

Love brussel sprouts.

Scotch tape- 2 rolls in desk drawer.

Any special SB snacks you will be looking forward to ? LOL.....nope

How about someone else's ?I remember trimming my 7 years olds bangs. One side was shorter to I would fix it. then I look and it was still uneven. Next thing we knew, she had no bangs. Well they were up to her hair line. She wasn't to happy. I wanted to cut the rest of it to match but she threw a fit. Wonder why
