Mama Meme

I am not tagging anyone, but I encourage y'all to do this one.

The rules are to answer the following questions in one word and then pass it on to seven others.  This is from my good buddy 
Working Mom.  

Where is your cell phone? No idea

Where is your significant other? Sofa

Your hair color? Mixed

Your mother? Dead

Your father? Ditto

Your favorite thing? Family

Your dream last night? Talking Dog

Your dream/goal? Health

The room you’re in? Annie's Kitchen

Your hobby? Blogs

Your fear? Weakness

Where do you want to be in 6 years? Right here

Where were you last night? Home

What you’re not? 29

One of your wish-list items? Happy Children

Where you grew up? Franklin

Last thing you did? Took a sip of wine. Duh.  With
Annie.  Duh

What are you wearing? Augie's sweater.

Your TV? Always on.

Your pet? Dog.  Cat.  Bird.

Your computer? PC and Mac.  I'm codependent.

Your mood? Na na na boo boo.

Missing someone? Nope

Your car? Dirty

Something you’re not wearing? Lampshade.  Yet.

Favorite store? Neiman's

Your summer? Too short.

Love someone? Yes

Your favorite color? Blue

When is the last time you laughed? 30 seconds ago

Last time you cried? Yesterday

Like I said, I am not tagging anyone, but if you've lasted this long through my detritus, then please leave a comment about what we have in common.  Also, please forgive my non-one-word answers.  I am excused because my dog ate my estrogen.  

**More importantly, for every comment I get by midnight EST tonight  (Wednesday)  I will donate one dollar to the Connecticut Food Bank.  I encourage everyone to do this.  Think Globally, Act Locally.

Thanks, too, to Maggie for the idea;)

xoxo, Lauren

Hmmm... my mom is also dead, my cell phone is in my purse and my tv is always on!

And I love blue...but I haven't cried in a long time!

Pay up, Baby! $2 bucks to a good cause!

Laura ~Peach~ said...

I need to go do this me me as well since Kim tagged me earlier today AWESOME cause!!!

Anonymous said...

I think it's hilarious that you are blogging from Annie's house.

Suz Broughton said...

Your poor dog is going to be complaining about laundry and considering botox for the next two days! Really sad.
My family is my favorite thing, too. It made me happy to see you answered that way.

kim-d said...

I love the buck-a-comment-to-a-good-cause; terrific idea! We both like blue, and I also think it was a hoot that you were blogging from Annie's house...I cannot even imagine the fun y'all have. Here's to friends you can get to the lampshade-wearing stage with :)!

I had a lot of fun trying to come up with one-word answers for this meme, but it's been even more fun reading everyone else's answers. Yes, it's true. I am easily amused and it doesn't take much for me to have fun...

Chesapeake Bay Woman said...

I admire your ability to keep your answers so succinct. If I did this I could stretch it out until Christmas because I'd answer each question with a post in and of itself. My posts are just way too long.

And, like my comments, mindless.

I am glad to hear you're drinking wine with Ms. TSAnnie. One of these days y'all are coming here for some or I'm coming there. We need an East Coat Blogfest.

Ellen said...

Ditto on the TV thing - I need noise in the house.

What a wonderful idea to donate.

Caution/Lisa said...

Your inabililty to limit answers to one word is precisely what we have in common. Not such a bad thing, you know.

Anonymous said...

Yes, my family is very important to me, also. I want them to be happy in every way....all of my children. We never stop worrying, do we?

I cried yesterday too! What a great idea to donate $ to the food bank.

We donate to St. Vincent DePaul in our community.

Pay up, MM! I'm commentin' twice!

abb said...

2nd comment - last night was fun!

Can hardly wait for your report on your weekend adventures!

Anonymous said...

besides a few others, one thing I would answer similarly is what I fear. You said weakness, for me it's failure. I hate thinking about failing at anything.

Unknown said...

I will do this one as well and will not be able to answer in just one word...won't be able to do it.
Even the word no becomes a run on sentence to me.

Great cause though and a wonderful idea.

QueenofPlanetHotflash said...

Magpie said...

I'm also not 29, my car is also dirty, and my favorite color is blue.

Happy that you picked up the Food Bank idea - may you get many comments!

Anonymous said...

I actually like the one work answers. Love the food bank idea! What? Of course, I'm "29."

tj said...

...Gosh, I wanna live near my blogging buddies and drink wine! Ya'll are more fun than my actual friends...did I just say that out loud? I've so gotta stop doing that...(hee,hee) :o/

...So do tell, did you wear the lampshade? lol... ;o)


Keetha said...

Talking dog? Tell us more.

I love that you're donating to the food bank. I mean, I would have commented anyway, but still. Great idea.

Trisha said...

Well - I love someone also! Isn't it great (most of the time)?

Bear Naked said...

Holy Moley Mama
You trying to blind me with that colour of font?

We have WINE in common for sure.
And if you find your cell phone check to see if you see mine also.

Bear((( )))

Deb said...

I received this via email last week. OK, here goes...
Mom = challenging
Dad = dead
cell phone = my side
hobby = blogging
what i'm not = mechanical
computer = Dell
ok...that's all for now!

Lisa said...

I didn't know both your parents are gone..I am very lucky to still have both of mine and they are still in good health for the most part. Dread the time when they aren't. Cell phone??? I never know wher mine is..usually my husband hears it ring and brings it to me. Because I am always in the computer room on the computer. Story of my life.
Do you always go to someone else's house and use their computer to blog? Do you think you might have a problem??? I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers for your addition (s) !!!!! =)

MamaGeek @ Works For Us said...

Blogger keeps eating my COMMENTS. WAH.

Anyway, I cried today and my car is certainly dirtier than yours. The rest, you slay me girl!

Egghead said...

Favorite thing-family, last night-home, what I'm not-29 (ha ha), computer-Mac/PC, just a few of the common things. I love the comment about what you are not wearing...ha ha!

Daryl said...

Orphan here too ...

Is this sweater you had on one that made into/out of the laundry pile? I'm just asking...


Cough it up .. another buck!

Unknown said...

GoteeMan said...

Wish I were drinking wine with you and Annie. You guys have too much fun. Blogging from Annie's house. LOL!

Flea said...

Oh, you are too 29. Stop lying.

I'm running this meme tomorrow, but I stole it from someone who didn't post the rules. So all of mine DEFINITELY have more than one word for the answer. Heh.

imbeingheldhostage said...

hmmm, my dad is dead, my husband's on the sofa staring at his macbook pro while I hang out on my mac, I am not 29 and Don't have a lampshade on my head and my car is dirty. We're like twins!!

Country Girl said...

Yo, Na na na boo boo. It's me: the talking dog from your dream last night. Yeah. Get on over here in your dirty car and bring that bottle. I needs me some. Bring the lampshades, too~ we're gonna need 'em later and I wanna look my best.

c ya

Anonymous said...

You're lying, I'm pretty sure I remember you wearing a lampshade once...

Sassy said...

I want to do this one...I really love getting to know my long distant friend...

Sassy said...

Oh shoot...I just saw on my time it is past midnight there...but it is only 9:13 here...does that still count???? Dang it sorry!


Thanks for obliging. I think it's sweet that you are wearing Augie's sweater.

Well, my other is on the sofa with the cat. My hair color is mixed. My fave thing is family also. I love blogging. I grew up in the South and I was at home last night. I'm not 29 either. I have dogs and a cat. My t.v. is on a lot but I don't watch much? Why bother then? I don't know.
I love someone and my summer is too short. Oh, and my car is dirty.
That was a great meme, Mental P.
