Stealing Sunday on Monday

So it’s Monday and despite the fact that I should be doing a Monday meme, I’m doing another one from Sunday because the Monday memes from my source of memes either suck or aren’t updated. So here’s a twenty question meme, found here, here or if it really tickles your fancy, here. Going any further is really quite boring and that’s as far as the Sunday Stealing site goes, so. 🙂 Enjoy this twenty question meme.

1. What’s for breakfast?

A peanut butter and jelly sandwich and … popcorn.

2. Do you read a newspaper daily?

I do not. But I still support newspapers everywhere!

3. What do you do when you can’t sleep?

Watch television, listen to music. Anything that distracts me but doesn’t take too much effort on my part.

4. Say a word that sums up your mood.

Melancholy.

5. Do you remember your dreams?

Quite rarely. I often believe that I don’t even dream. I think I had one this morning, but … forgotten.

6. Name something from your dream last night.

Kenny was there. … But he also woke me up, so that might be faulty.

7. Name a food that describes you.

Vanilla ice cream. Lots of people like me, but even when I’m not the favorite I’m still liked. c:

8. Today you are wearing:

Flare jeans, white tanktop, blue flannel shirt.

9. What’s in your pockets?

Occasionally my phone. But not now, because I am sitting.

10. Did you sing in the shower today?

I showered last night and no, I did not sing in it.

11. What’s the last song you heard?

Some theme song for some show.

12. Looking forward to the holidays?

Every day!

13. Where do you want to be this instant?

Sitting next to Kenny at SHS. Alternatively, a teleportation to Connecticut so I don’t have to fly tomorrow (teleport all my stuff too!) would be fantastic, though sad.

14. What’s for lunch?

Not sure yet.

15. What’s something you would like to do soon?

Bring Kenny wif me so I never hafta be without him? 😀

16. Reading anything now? What is it?

This quiz while I answer it.

17. What’s for dinner?

Probably spaghetti. Or chicken. Haven’t decided what I want yet.

18. A favorite part of the day is:

When Kenny gets home. ♥

19. Are you happy?

Right now? Yes, actually.

20. Guess how many people will do Sunday Stealing this weekend?

My guess is between 47 and 53.

A shorter post than many, but what can you do. Kenny’s complaining about how hungry he is despite the fact he ate his lunch so I’m going to look at my sources for something tasty to make before he gets home for him. See you lovely readers later.

Sunday Seven + Updates

For lack of anything to write about, let’s just start off with the Sunday Seven. This week’s question is:

Name seven animals that you think would belong on your totem pole.

Information can be found either on the particular week’s question or on the totem pole link; however, I simply am too lazy to summarize or copy-paste anything right now. Very tired after the pool.

1) Wolf

WolfThe wolf’s traits are loyalty, perseverance, success, intuition and spirit. I am very loyal, and I often persevere to obtain that which I desire. When I do, I’m generally successful because when I put forth the effort it typically doesn’t end until I am successful. And finally, though I am not religious by many definitions, I can be incredibly spiritual when I do so choose. Faith is something I give myself when there is a time for it, as opposed to something given to me and instructed upon me.

2.) Turtle

Turtle

The traits of the turtle are nurturing, shy and protective. I love babysitting and taking care of kids and pets, I always have. I’m a little shy, because making friends has become a lot harder since I moved up north. And I’m very protective.. at least of the Kenny and my mother, who are the two who matter most to me.

3.) Lynx

Lynx

The lynx is known as the keeper of secrets, a guardian, a good listener and a guide. While this one may be young and adorable, it will grow into these traits that I happen to possess. I’m a very good friend and I love to listen to people talk. I like to hear stories and thus I often find out ‘secretive’ things about my friends. I guard them well because they mean a lot to me. And finally, I also give lots of people advice because lots of them ask me for it. I’ve been told I’m good at it … now if only I’d follow my own advice!

4.) Lion

Lioness

The lion’s characteristics include family-oriented, energetic, courageous, guardian and protective. I’ve already explained the final two, and as for the former three.. While I’ve never had the best family, I have always wanted one and have a very strong maternal instinct. I can have a lot of energy when I get more sleep than usual for a long part of the day. And when something needs to be done, I get down to it and get it done .. even if that means smashing the frightening bug on the window sill.

5.) Dragonfly

Dragonfly

The dragonfly is described as flighty and carefree with a strong imagination and higher aspirations. When I first read this I thought the first two and the last one contradicted one another, but then I realized that they work because you don’t have to be one way all the time. At times I am carefree and superfluous while at other times I have high goals for myself that I strive to make happen. I also have a vivid imagination which helps me for the hobby of writing that I enjoy very much.

6.) Crane

Crane

The crane is described as solitary, just, long-living, independent, intelligent and vigilant. More often than not I find myself alone with no one but myself, which if that isn’t solitude I don’t know what is. I tend to play by the rules out of respect and then the reason, reason being that there’s no real reason to cause mayhem for no reason. As mentioned above I’m usually by myself and thus have grown skilled in the state of independence. And finally, vigilance: I’m a very sensitive person to touch and to sound, so I’m often very very aware of that around me. Which is probably why I’m a small bit afraid of the dark: it’s harder to see that which surrounds you.

7.) Deer

Deer

The deer’s traits are listed as such: compassionate, peaceful, intellectual, gentle, caring, kind, subtlety, gracefulness, femininity, innocence … annnd seller of adventure but I don’t quite buy that one. I’m a very friendly, familiarizing person so compassion is to be expected. I’m peaceful, because I’m a lover rather than a fighter and I hate for there to be fights going on. Intellectual … well, I like to think I am and people tell me so. Gentle, I like taking care of children and to do so you must be very careful and soft. Caring and kind are kind of one and already explained.  The strongest things are subtle and this is a lesson I’ve learned at least a year or two ago and have thus practiced. I can be graceful, although I can also be clumsy. I’m feminine because I enjoy dressing up and feeling just .. girly, for awhile. And the last one is self-explanatory for itself.

And so there you have it, my seven animals. The wolf, the turtle, the lynx, the lion, the dragonfly, the crane and the deer. Very different animals to make up one personality. And there’s me!

It is now 9:50 p.m. on Sunday. Tomorrow is my final full day in North Carolina. On Tuesday, around 2:30 p.m. I’ll be on my way home. Delightful … not really.  But here we go. My stomach is beginning to hurt already just thinking about it. I should really get something for my nerves, ugh. Anyway, I’m going to make the best of it. I have lots of pictures of things that I’ve done, so once I get back I’ll have several posts of this summer trip. Glad to see that traffic has been increasing a small bit, too. 🙂 Later, all. Good night!

Thursday 13 + Apologies

Today is Thursday, August 25th, 2011. It’s 1:30 in the morning and I wish I was tired. Kenny has to wake up in four and a half hours for school and I asked him to wake me up too so that I could go with him in the car for his first day of school. It is unfortunate that I shan’t be going in with him for first day classes. Summer is dying, and dear lord is it depressing. Kenny’s is gone and mine is diminishing faster than it ought to be. As my trips often go I can’t say that I haven’t wasted time the past few days doing things like playing video games where I should’ve been doing things that we could have done together and enjoyed much more while we are together.. but we’ve both had fun and I value these days more than I can express. The past few weeks we have consecutively stayed up until between three and four in the morning,  and that is why I am writing away here. I have about one ounce of sleepiness in me and it’s killing me, because I should be well knocked out by now. School doesn’t start for me until September 1st and I go home on Saturday. It’s very saddening. I don’t know what to do with my last couple of days but I hope very much so that they go smoothly and will be as joyous as each day since the eighth of this month has been.

Furthermore, I completely apologize for the lack of writing. I am quite aware that I have completely and utterly lost my flair for writing daily and for this I deeply apologize. It will probably take quite awhile to regain an audience, but just the fact that this is getting out there makes me feel better.

There will be no pictures from the trip or the things I’ve done tonight because it’s 1:45 a.m. and I truly don’t care to locate my camera or its cord that hooks up to the computer to upload its pictures. But I will say that that is one portion of the reason why I haven’t been writing as frequently. While here, I generally steal Kenny’s PC for all of my computing needs because his monitor is gigantic and runs so smoothly and beautifully. It’s still running Windows XP but it’s a sleek and slim machine. A photo will accompany my claims sooner than later, but later than now.

Now for the Thursday 13. In light of this trip, I will attempt to list the thirteen most interesting and notable things I’ve done while here instead of writing on the blog. Hopefully this will make up marginally for the lack of content.

1.) Buttermilk Biscuits

I finally made them! They weren’t as great or flaky as this recipe says they are, but I blame this on the lack of fresh baking powder as well as my incredibly disappointing inexperience for baking biscuits which is quite a bit of work, if you’re unaware. But I did make them and they all got eaten, which must be good, right?

2.) Saltwater Taffy 

Taffy isn’t as hard as I anticipated, although it is a tad boring. Although I will pass this on: don’t put the taffy on wax paper when you’re about to begin stretching. Because it is still warm, and it will stick. And it will be a complete disaster! Despite this, we had enough to continue, in two flavors: cherry and vanilla. I think they were quite delicious, and the taffy is now gone, so.. 🙂

3.) Gingerbread Cupcakes with Cinnamon Frosting 

These were delicious. Though if you haven’t made gingerbread before, hold your nose for the molasses! Oh, my dear, it was terrible but the smell and taste after was completely worth it. The recipe very barely makes twelve cupcakes, more like eleven and a midget cupcake. The frosting is very good but I recommend using a little less sugar than is called for because I didn’t need as much as it called for and it was quite sweet as it was.

4.) Vanilla Jam Doughnut Muffins 

I had very mixed feelings on these, but everyone in the house seemed to find them delightful. Although I was a little stressed out and misread the cinnamon-to-sugar ratio and accidentally did very little sugar and very much cinnamon for the first few muffins. … Advice: Don’t. Do. That. Unless you really like cinnamon, it’s a tad bit unbearable. Kenny ate them and claimed they were good and his mother liked cinnamon and she ate them happily, but I simply couldn’t do it. On the second batch I still couldn’t really handle it because it was now too sweet. I also had some trouble with the jamming portion. But if you’re patient and like jam and sugar, this is the recipe for you!

5.) Red Beans and Rice, family-style.

I am a Martinez, and I was born in Louisiana. We have a New Orleans history and my all-time favorite recipe growing up with my dad’s side of the family was red beans and rice. Contrary to popular belief, red beans and rice consists of much more than beans and rice. It also has celery and onions and sausage and Tony Cachere’s seasoning and some other ingredients that I can’t think of right now because it’s 2:04 a.m. and I’m rather tired, nor am I looking at the recipe. Anyway, my grandma sent me Camellia red beans, Zatarain’s extra long grain rice and  genuine French bread from New Orleans. It was the best thing in the whole world and I’ve never felt more proud of myself. I am so overjoyed that the family recipe was finally passed on to me.

6.) Participated in a Slumber Party.

Kenny’s younger sister has a friend whose birthday was yesterday, the 24th of August, the day before school started for them. So a few days ago, Monday night, Deanna threw a surprise birthday slumber party for her friend. She went all out! I prepared the gingerbread cupcakes and some brownies for the party and Deanna, along with her mom and a few mutual friends, went out and bought some party decorations and proceeded to decorate the living room and kitchen and entryway of the house. Lots of streamers, balloons, table cloths and other dog-themed party paraphernalia, even a star-shaped piñata! It had been a long time since I’d had a birthday party or slumber party for that matter, so it was quite refreshing to feel younger again, even if I’m not that far from “young” as they are.

7.) Beat The Longest Journey and Dreamfall, its sequel. 

The Longest Journey (1999) is an amazing point-and-click adventure game created by a man whom I will forever love forever on end… unless he stops making games pertaining to this series. Ragnar Tørnquist. Dreamfall: The Longest Journey is its sequel which was made in 2006 and with note-worthy graphics that are a surprising difference. D:TLJ has about a billion cliffhangers; however, the two games make up the best series of video games I have ever played and I am very eagerly awaiting a follow-up game.

8.) Began playing and exploring The Sims 3: Generations.

The Sims 3 has yet to cease amazing me. In previous Sims games, there is little else to explore aside from your house and the houses of your neighbors. In TS3, there’s an entire city of your residency, not to mention China, France and Egypt if you purchase The Sims 3: World Adventures. Generations brings even more fun to every age instead of simply young adult which most people begin playing by default. It is a very interesting expansion and I certainly and completely recommend it along with The Sims 3 itself, if you’ve yet to purchase it.

9.) Gotten more sleep than I’ve gotten all summer long.

Okay, so this one is technically cheating and not a very fun activity or anything but I’ve just been thinking as I stay up so late (update: 2:24 a.m.) that I’ve been sleeping in a lot and taking various naps. Typically, on any given day, school or not, I get up very early and stay up very late for a very minimal amount of sleep period. On school days I generally get between seven and four hours of sleep, ranging more often on the lower scale of those numbers. I think a large part of that is that when Kenny comes downstairs to cuddle with me I feel safer and more vulnerable and thus more relaxed. It’s hard to sleep if you’re afraid of the dark. But with Kenny, and also during the day when I’m sleeping since it’s summer, nothing frightens nor worries me a bit.

10.) Become more interested in video games than I’ve been in years.

I’m aware that this is also a vague listing, but it’s true! Over the vacation I’ve played Oblivion for the first time (last trip), The Sims 3 while I’m here, Sims Medieval at home, Fable yesterday, both The Longest Journey games in three days.. and we’ll throw Sims 3 in there again simply because I’ve been playing it more than I’ve been expecting. I’ve simply become readdicted to video games. Especially to thoes that don’t require as much violence but more thought and strategizing and thought than most games.  I’ve also been sorely missing my Nintendo DS and Pokémon.

11.) Grown closer to Kenny’s younger sister.

When I first met Kenny’s family approximately thirteen months ago, Kenny’s younger sister was the person I found it hardest with whom to bond. She followed us around a lot and I always got the feeling that the parents had bribed her to pay attention to us which was beyond annoying. She hasn’t really stopped doing that, but the constant keep-up of the habit has made us run into many similarities that we share. I’m very glad about this happening. It was obnoxious at first how she followed us around but surprisingly it’s been getting less and less so to the point that it’s very pleasant to have her around 99% of the time, as long as we still have some time alone to cuddle and be together.

12.) Contemplated creating a new site with Kenny. 

Originally, the idea for a website came around when Kenny and I realized we had zero method for making money. We kept coming up with plans for features and articles of content and things of the like but a name and a theme has continued to escape us. So, while my thoughts continued and paused for the joint effort, I created my own blog. It is still a .Wordpress site, so don’t worry, I’m not just stringing you all along for a feeble attempt at cash. But Kenny and I have continued to converse about the possibility… with few contributing ideas. There’s also the question of shall I keep this website if and when we make a joint site, or shall I integrate this blog into the new one? Things to consider. Leave your opinions in the comments?

13.) Thought and conversed with the family and myself.

I’ve had a lot of time to think and a lot of time to talk to people in Kenny’s family. I try to do this often because I’m very fairly convinced that his dad doesn’t like me and I always seem to get mixed feelings from his mom, which upsets me greatly. They’re a beautiful family and they get along so well so much of the time. I’ve never had a perfectly up-to-par family, and while everyone has their imperfections Kenny has the most family-oriented family I’ve seen in my fifteen-and-a-half years of life. They communicate and do things together and it’s amazing and heartbreaking to me all at once. I am envious. I want to belong. I’ve noticed a very strong maternal instinct within my own self and it makes me weep for the fate I was given, because I’ve never had very parental parents, if that makes sense. I’ve never been very close with either of my parents and it’s sad. They’re very hard to talk to, they can be very quick to judge and decide what they feel about a topic without hearing you out and they can very very very quickly lose patience. And nor are they very reliable on their word, the majority of the time. So it’s made my childhood and just life… hard. I can deal with it the majority of the time, but coming here always pours salt in an open wound.

Anyway.. that got more emotional than I thought. It’s now 2:47 a.m. and I’m very tired and upset and I think I’m going to attempt sleep now. I apologize for that random depressing post. Good night everyone or good morning, I hope your night or day goes fairly well.

PS: Congratulations to me for my longest post after, totaling (before this sentence) at 2139 words (and after, 2144 words)!

Friday Five + What Makes You Think?

So it’s Friday, August 12th, which just so happens to be Kenny’s and mine sixteen-month anniversary. 🙂 While we’ve taken a break from the initial activities we zoomed up on immediately upon my arrival, we’ve still been enjoying this lovely vacation. However, there’s not too much interesting activity to speak of at the moment. So here’s a meme for Friday and something more at the end.

Friday Five

1.) What could serve as physical evidence that you sometimes lose focus?

That would easily be the consistency with which I get homework done, or the amount of summer homework I’ve completed despite the fact I sat down completely determined to get a good chunk of it done…

2.) What could serve as physical evidence that you are loved?

My laptop or my phone or Kenny’s phone, each loaded with sweet little things that make you know it’s all legitimate ♥

3.) What could serve as physical evidence that you’re from wherever you’re from?

This is an easy one for me. I am from Fort Worth, Texas. I have a Texas flag patterned bandanna from an Old 97’s concert that I was given that Rhett Miller himself used during the concert. My mother has a Fort Worth bandanna (what up with the bandannas) that she acquired I believe from one of many festivals. And all in all I am obsessed with Texas, as you may have guessed purely from this blog.

4.) What could serve as physical evidence that you went anywhere this past week?

My bathing suit, probably still waiting to be washed. Not to mention the fact that I just bought it, along with my new flip-flops, two days ago.

5.) What could serve as physical evidence that you recently caved into temptation?

I suppose the fact that I’ve been drinking lots of Dr Pepper despite my original goal that on this trip I would attempt seriously to cut back on consuming it.

So that’s that. This meme was all about physical evidence. Man, who’s going to be tracking me? Should I be paranoid now? xD I feel like there’ll be someone investigating all my stuff before I leave…

Anyway, so my boyfriend’s sister Natalie sent he and I to this website called Makes Me Think. It’s a site similar to Gives Me HopeMy Life is Average or F My Life that has, well, thought-provoking life stories written there. The difference is many of the stories on MMT seem genuine and make me truly sad or happy for those on the other end of the line.

Since I missed Controversial Wednesday this week, here’s a question for Friday: What makes you think? What is something that has altered your life that may have seemed like a small and random act of kindness at the time? What do you hold close or personal or sentimental to you?

The Difference Two Days Makes

In case you were all worried about me, I have landed safely and am doing quite well in North Carolina. Today is my first full-length day as I got here last night around 9:50 p.m. And woo, boy, has it been fun already. But first, let me give you a taste of the Hartford airport!

normally..

fun!

Before you get to the gates for boarding planes, there’s this hallway with a few projections of these umbrellas (see first picture). They are interactive, which is of course the best part. I’ve got a similar shot with my mom doing the same thing, but she probably wouldn’t be happy to see that on the blog. 😉

The best part, however, was on the way to the airport. During the ride, it rained on and off, from drizzles to a million miles a second of rain. It was pretty intense to watch. But what made it all worth it was a moment that I unfortunately couldn’t capture on camera in its complete glory: a full, complete rainbow (yes, I could see both ends) directly over the airport. I’ve never felt more confident and excited to be at an airport in my entire life. Here are some scattered shots.

Intense rainfall, intense sunlight

rainbow 1

rainbow 2

rainbow 3

last rainbow one, promise

This morning started out by going to the eye care place for Kenny and his two sisters to get checkups right before school begins in a few weeks. I spent this time playing Sudoku and Chess on their mom’s Nook. In case you’re unaware, the Nook is similar to the Kindle or a mildly (read: incredibly) more lame version of the iPad. Then home for awhile, and then to Burger King for icees and food and then to the grocery store for some cooking ingredients for me.

This is where it gets fun. This is what it started with: watermelon lemonade. This is one messy project to get involved with because watermelons are incredibly, incredibly juicy. It requires half of a watermelon and despite how much that looks at first, getting it cutted-and-gutted and then deseeded can take a lot of mass away. I used 3/4 of the half that we cut because the various ways that Kenny, his sister and I chopped the watermelon made it get full fairly quickly. I also only used three lemons, and three tablespoons of agave syrup. Which makes all the difference, by the way. Unlike the poster of this recipe, we preferred the beverage more sweet than sour, so I highly recommend you taste-test often to determine what’s best for you. Here’s what our finished product looks like:

Watermelon Lemonade is tasty!

The entire pitcher of watermelon lemonade is gone, by the way. It was soo tasty! Gone by dinnertime … dinnertime, of course, being some delicious quesadillas cooked by Kenny, his mother and I. And man, it was the best meal I’ve had in a very, very long time.

Contrary to the recipe link given above, we decided to cook only onions, beef, and chicken and we did this in two pans, splitting the onions proportional to the amount of each meat that we had. Then we cook! Like so:

BEEF!

CHICKEN!

Looks delicious, doesn’t it? Mmm. And this is straight on the oven cooking, nearly done but not quite yet. I cooked the tortillas individually afterwards in the skillet with a sphere of Pam for each one. Some stayed lighter than others while mine – of course – turned a gorgeous, perfect pale gold. It was absolutely scrumptious. Yes, scrumptious is a fancy word, but it is the only word that’s even close to as elevated as I felt while eating this awesome quesadilla. Mm, mm, mm.

Here’s Kenny’s, shown instead of mine because his picture came out better:

Kenny's Delish Quesadilla

And it’s only 9:20 p.m.! As you can see, even these two days away from blogging has already been a dramatic increase in activity and interest in the life of me. I hope you try both of the recipes listed here and are prepared for more in the upcoming days and weeks, such as the buttermilk biscuits featured in last week’s Thursday 13 and a few from Vanilla & Lace including salt water taffy and gingerbread cupcakes with cinnamon frosting. Be sure to check back!

Sunday Stealing & Monday Leaving

My blog is one week old! I feel so special! How awesome is that?! I’ve been able to post daily, even if some posts are lesser than others.

So here is Sunday Stealing once again. This is part one of two for a meme of thirty-one questions. And here it goes:

1. What has been you longest love relationship?

The longest relationship I’ve ever been in is the current relationship I am in which has lasted nearly sixteen months now.

2. What was the last gift that you received?

Probably the soap molds my mommy bought for me. 🙂

3. What do you spend your extra cash on?

Various things. I usually save it up more often than not. When I do spend it, it’s usually on gifts or for soapmaking materials.

4. If you could live anywhere would you live?

Fort Worth, Texas. It’s a lovely, beautiful, cultural city of love and tolerance, despite whatever anyone says about Texas.

5. Who’s your cell provider?

AT&T, phone by Samsung. Currently. Soon to be an iPhone. ♥

6. What’s your favorite mall store?

Probably Forever 21, as of late. I’ve gotten many cute clothes from there. Next would be either Hot Topic or Journey’s.

7. What’s the longest job that you’ve had? (No parenting does not count!)

Ha, that’s funny. But I’m fifteen. I’d assume a babysitting gig, but I can’t remember the longest one per se. I’ve had several.

8. If you won the lottery, who’d you call first?

Kenny! Either Kenny or my mom. Depending on where I was, because uh, I’m always with one of them. xD

9. If you won, how would you spend your money after investments?

I’d give some to my mom, some to Kenny’s parents, then I’d take Kenny and we’d move to a wonderful house in Fort Worth. Done and done.

10. When was the last time you went to church (or a religious house)?

I do not go to church. Therefore the last time I went would be when I was younger and spent the night at my religious-ish friend’s house on Saturday nights.

11. What’s the biggest lie that you’ve heard?

“I have read and accept the Terms and Conditions.”

12. When you go out with your friends, where do you go?

To the park, to the pool… Various places.

13. When was the last time that you cried?

NEVER! No… I have no idea, whatsoever. I don’t really attempt to record these things, y’know.

14. What food do you hate?

My least favorite food… I don’t know. I haven’t had anything I hated much aside from Brussels sprouts. >>

15. What do you like best about yourself?

My favorite physical quality of myself would be my eyes because they’re light, pretty, and multicolored. My favorite personality trait of myself is that I’m loyal with a big heart. I’m friendly to everyone I meet but I’m very much in love and happy. 🙂

Now as you all know or even if you don’t, tomorrow night I’ll be departing for North Carolina to see my lovely love, Kenny. It won’t be until evening so there should be no interference with the regular post, and in fact my posts should rapidly become more interesting and photo-oriented and personal and less (not really) memes but more (personal + meme posts separate) posts! 😀 Keep your eyes peeled!

Upcoming Projects + The Saturday Six

I’ve been so tired, all day long. I stayed up until like three in the morning and I was hardly even tired then, which is my problem at its base. I don’t go to bed when I should and then I wake up around 11-noon and I’m pissed off. I need to make myself sleep earlier but it’s soo hard.

Anyway, Kenny’s on his way home from Disney which is lovely and makes me very very happy. It’s Saturday, which means it’s about two days until I fly out there. Natalie and Kenny are both getting excited because they are actually interested in my crafts! 🙂 Which makes me happy, of course.

Once in NC, Natalie’s requested the mud scrub and Kenny (silly as it is!) wants to try the foot scrub since his feet are all hairy and unruly and.. manly. xD I also plan on making the makeup remover as they have all the supplies there. … I would keep linking, but relinking every single link is probably a stupid idea. Because to sum it up I’m going to work my butt off to get every craft on that list done and even more, with many pictures and reports and things.

I’m beginning to ramble. Let’s get on with Saturday’s meme of six questions about social networking websites.

1. How many social media networks do you belong to at the moment?

This one’s a little hard because I know the basic ones like Facebook and Twitter. I used to have a Myspace and I technically still have the login and do so occasionally just to check it out but generally the only one I really use is Facebook.

2. How many social media networks have you joined, then stopped using because you didn’t care for their setup or operation?

Myspace! I also technically have a LinkedIn and LiveJournal account, but I never to only used them one time, so..

3. Which social media network do you use the most?

Facebook! Again. These are a bit of redundant questions so far, bro… I wonder if WordPress counts as social networking. I mean ti seems pretty social to me, and isn’t the networking the way you can see other peoples’ blogs?

4. Take the quiz: Are You Facebook, MySpace or Twitter?

Oh fine but I’m not happy about this. I got Twitter. That which I barely use. It says I’m energetic and hyperactive and have a terrible attention span. It says I can’t help but let everyone know what I’m doing but that’s not true, because I barely post at all. -_- On any of these sites. I personally think I’m Myspace, tbh, because I used to love customizing my page but I despised the pages that had miles and miles of quiz results, blah blah, etcetera.  Even if no one uses Myspace anymore.

5. How do you feel about geotagging networks like FourSquare, where users can post their current locations: cool idea or security risk?

I never really thought about it as a security risk but now that you think about it it kind of could be one. But people do that on facebook and they usually don’t give like specific addresses.. although I suppose sometimes if someone wanted to they could find the address of like a restaurant; but then again, there’s a bunch of people at restaurants… so.. I don’t know.

6. If you know a company that you do a lot of business with is on a social network that you belong to, are you more likely to “friend” or “like” them?

uhm. Yes. Why would I follow/like someone if I didn’t use their product? That’s like.. the entire point. Like if you’ve got an iPod you obviously use iTunes and therefore if you like ’em on Facebook you can get free songs and stuff, it’s lovely.

Well.. there was The Saturday Six. I dunno, I’m not as impressed as I’ve been with the other blog memes, but that’s that. It’s a little sad. This blog is nearly a week old, depending on when you consider my first day to be since I started it at some erroneous hour of the night.
