Fill-in-the-Blank Friday

Am I becoming a meme-maniac? I happened upon this cute, little meme and thought I'd give it a whirl. Thank you, Lauren, over at The Little Things We Do, for coming up with Fill-in-the-Blank Friday

1. I am a (morning, evening, middle of the day person) morning person, but not "crack of dawn" like some people think of morning. I'm at my mental best and most relaxed between 8:30 and 10, and most productive between 9 and noon.

2. My favorite Pandora stations are...waiting for me to discover them. I haven't started doing the Pandora thing. I spend a lot of time in total silence, but if I do start with Pandora, it would be a mix of praise, country, hymnss, early 80s love songs, a touch of classical, acoustic guitar, and lots of Rich Mullins.

3. 3 of my "must-have" songs for a road trip playlist are not all songs. General categories, not specifically music. I don't have must-have play lists, but I really enjoy popping some Garrison Keillor's "Prairie Home Companion" CDs, a Christian teaching tape of whatever I need for spiritual growth or parenting/marriage enrichment, and I love listening to Nickel Creek for a few miles at a time.

4. My favorite pattern is toile. I don't own or wear a stitch of it anymore, but when I see it, I adore it. I wear mostly solids, but occasionally a small floral or checkered print. And paisley. Goodness, so much for "a" favorite.

5. My favorite perfume is called Mediterranean.

6. Rules are easy to make, hard to follow.

7. My most overused phrase or punctuation is "Easy, easy!" I say it whenever I think my husband or other driver in the family is getting too close to the person ahead of us on the highway. It's definitely reserved for family, and replaced "Do you see that guy? Do you?" Has a less nagging sound, don'tcha think? Unless you're the driver, of course. For punctuation, I think
I overuse semicolons. Maybe I should analyze this problem further; doing so, however, would require a semicolonoscopy.

Dear "Meme-Maniac"- No. I really doubt you are a "Meme Maniac"! I rather enjoy reading these and I think they could be useful tools, like colons:, quotation marks "" and the like...! I like toile too. There is another pattern (besides paisley) that I like a LOT, but I don't know what it's called. Hmmmm. (Is a pattern to name-of-pattern matching game in order?)

Zoanna! I had a real colonoscopy this past week. Wow.
Anyway, I have chosen you to do some reflection/retrospection on your blog posts. Go over to me (thecontemplativecat) and see what you have to do. Susan

Oh, Susan, YUCK on the colonoscopy!

Thanks for choosing me. I have a lot of posts to choose from, that's for sure. I gladly accept and will post soon.
