Diana's Tag

Five things I would never wear:
1. Thong underwear. I have NEVER felt the need to floss my butt.
2. Spike heels. I have a short husband, so I never wear heels. Spike heels wreak havoc on your flooring. I spend all day on my feet, I don't need to torture them further.
3. A bikini. Sorry, those days are over.
4. That godawful bright, lime-green color that is so popular.
5. Bib overalls. Don't laugh. A lot of women, my age and older wear them. They're cute on kids, but when you're over 30...throw them out.

Five favorite TV shows:
1. CSIs I'm not real fond of NY, but I watch it anyway.
2. 2 1/2 Men I LOVE the kid and the housekeeper!!
That's about all I watch on a regular basis. We watch a lot of educational TV like Discovery, History Channel, etc. The rest of the time we watch movies.

Five things I would do with a 100 million dollars:
1. Buy my current place of employment. L and I would LOVE to straighten out the mess my boss and her son have made of the business. Hey, everybody needs a reason to get out of the house.
2. Make sure that all my loved ones are financially secure.
3. Host a blogfriends get together. Wouldn't that be COOL?!
4. Hire the world's best private tutors for our son.
5. Do good works with most of the money. I don't know what this would be, but I'd start researching as soon as I had the money.

Five greatest joys:
1. My family.
2. The love that God has so graciously given me to share!
3. The beauty of nature. That's why we live in the "sticks".
4. Days off!!!
5. Reading

Five songs I can sing from memory:
1. The Partridge Family theme song. Much to my son's embarrassment we discovered that I still remembered this when we watched Must Love Dogs.
2. Show Me the Way to Go Home. We had to sing this to our daughter every night at bedtime.
3. It's All For the Best. This one amazes my daughter.
4. Dancing in the Moonlight
5. TONS of Christmas songs!

Five favorite toys:
1. Computer
2. Cameras
3. Scanner
4. Board games
5. Our AV hookup

Here's a set I HAD to add!

Five favorite tools:
1. compound miter saw
2. table saw
3. 1/3 sheet electric sander
4. Craftsman Robo Grip wrenches!!
5. VSR 1/2 inch electric drill

you'd get along well with my sister, whose favorite toys are also tools.....

thanks for doing this, its so much fun to get to know things about people you would never know otherwise.

Robo Grips are the bestest!!! I couldn't live without them!

Diana, you'll be needing a few tools in your new Casa.
That's why I like tags too.

Courtney, aren't they the greatest?! We never would've got the bottom bolts off our toilet without them. They're pricey, but well worth the money!
They also work great for getting the plastic corks out of champagne bottles. ;)

I'm with you on the butt floss. I don't see the draw at all.

I'm with you on all the "would never wear" things. I tried a lime green shirt and it was hideous.

At 8/12/2006 8:59 PM, Blogger SME said...

Oh, and I gave up bibs a few years ago 'cause I'm too old & fat for them. Tell Grandma and Dad, I'm sure they'll be thrilled!!

At 8/12/2006 9:02 PM, Blogger SME said...

Geez, I make a comment and then I think of something else!
There was an episode of "Family Guy" where Stewie gets drunk and sings "Show Me the Way to Go Home" as he's being carried off to bed! I thought, "Don't laugh! It's a really good bedtime song for kids!"

ND & WC, I don't care what anybody says, thongs CAN'T be comfortable!

Love ya too ND!

SME, you bought a lime-green shirt just to annoy me, didn't you? Let's not forget who almost painted their living room that color! ;)
For some reason, bibs seem to be an old lady thing right now. I always found it amusing that you liked them, since Dad wouldn't let me dress you in them, when you were little.
Did Stewie sing the "bom, bom, bom" parts?

I love that you added tools to the list. :)

The blogfriends get-together sounds so wonderful.

Squirl, I had to live up to my avatar. ;)

honestly (and trust me here) thongs are not all that bad, and espically when u are wearing dress pants (no panty lines!) with no pockets they come in espically handy. you don't feel them at all and they are the most comfortable thing ever, i will never, ever go back to regular underwhere, you should try them just once, when you are all alone and just see.....trust me!

Wow, great lists! You've just inspired a new post based on something you mentioned. Watch for it tomorrow or the next day. :-)

At 8/14/2006 10:46 PM, Blogger Sadie Lou said...

You rock! Your favorite tools? I don't think I could name five tools that were anything but hammer, wrench, screwdriver...

are there others?! I SOOOOO agree with the overalls! Especially if they have pictures of Winnie the pooh or Mickey Mouse on them!

At 8/14/2006 11:14 PM, Blogger Gardenia said...

I forgot to tell you how much flossing your butt made me laugh!

Most of you nice ladies should include an instant man Genie in a bottle, to solve your problems, instead of getting totally confused and hopping mad.

At 8/15/2006 6:13 PM, Blogger tshsmom said...

Flea, not with my hemorrhoids!

Great post VV!

Sadie, I'm the only woman I know who likes getting tools and kitchen gadgets as gifts.

Diana, I got that term from my daughter. Quite appropriate, don't you think?

Vest, HUH? I don't see any confusion or anger here.

At 8/15/2006 8:13 PM, Blogger Notta Wallflower said...

Ha, ha - agreed on the thong. I've worn one for about 5 minutes and couldn't take the torture any longer. I had to smile at the song "Show Me The Way To Go Home" - reminds me of Jaws, which is one of my favorite movies. :-)

Admit it, without a qualified person, meaning a man [-you temporary men in skirts using male macho tools are pretty useless- and more dangerous than a blind redneck with a gun, try smelling and dressing like a woman and talk sweetly to your man, go bake a cake- be a woman- not a sexless makeshiftman

OK, Saby. This is the one and ONLY time that I will be addressing your asinine behavior!

I have a strong feeling that you are an American male(s) between the ages of 13-16. You have just enough hacking skills to make a pest of yourself all over blogspot.
Communicating with your betters, in a civilized manner, is beyond your pimply-faced brain. You obviously don't possess enough social skills to develop a lasting relationship with another human being, so you spew your childish prattle, trying to draw attention to yourself.
Come back and give advice after you have been in a committed relationship for 30 years.

FYI, I work full-time, cook, bake clean, sew, knit, crochet, homeschool my son, and nurture my family. Yes, I smell good, but you will NEVER know how good. I reserve that privilege for my husband, a REAL man, who would NEVER question the intelligence or femininity of ANY of the women on this blog.
I work, side-by-side, with my husband on all of our home improvement/repair projects. I have taught him the carpentry skills I learned from my Dad. My husband never had a father to learn these skills from. Feel free to stop by anytime to check out my prowess with power tools. I learned from the best; I doubt that your work would EVER hold a candle to mine!
Sexless? In your wildest dreams you could NEVER imagine what satisfaction my husband and I have given EACH OTHER for the past 30 years. REMEMBER THAT while you're banging your teeny-wienie, waiting for your Mom to cook your dinner!

Until you find a REAL woman, who is willing to put up with your adolescent bullshit, kindly SHUT THE FUCK UP!

Sadly, I think saby is probably at least 40. The stuff in his brain case is 16, tops. But I say, yeah, he lives with Mum (who may or may not be alive) and has roughly as much sexual savoir faire as Elmo from Sesame Street.

At 8/23/2006 8:04 AM, Blogger Sagepaper said...

I don't like the Elmo analogy. It's not my thing, but if I were a pervert, I would sooner molest Elmo than Saby.

Me too Sage!! LMAO!
