Socially in the 90s when I would go out with friends – I could make a pack of cigarettes last for a long time. I smoked in my own house once, and decided then that I didn’t want to go down that path. Completely stopped when I got pregnant with my son, and now am really allergic to cigarette smoke, the only thing I can tolerate is the V2 – e liquids from electronic cigarettes. I was thinking of buying one from

I felt the need to answer this survey. Don’t ask me why. Yarn & Order made me do it. She is being quite the influence today, isn’t she?

Yes, I still do. Even after the horror stories about what is in it. I almost never eat it though, and but when I do it MUST be Oscar Mayer. I agree, the correct spelling is bologna. I don’t care if anyone says it can be spelled baloney. That is just wrong.

3. Favorite shade of green:

Meme Me!

I’m somewhat fried after having to watch the State of the Union address tonight with Jason for extra credit for school. Man, I avoid that at all costs normally. Now I remember why. So a meme is about all I’m up for tonight.

It has been ages since I have been tagged for a meme. It is sort of a cool feeling, you know? Props to Tara for hooking me up. Yo, yo, *insert gang sign* you rock. (I’m sure Tara has a great love of my throwing the gang signs. Especially when I’m about to get us killed for doing it.)

Yes, It’s Barry…


A few months ago, I decided it was time to clear off my key chain. I had an old apartment key on it which one time I had to contact the best Locksmith because I lost the keys. A post office key for a mailbox I haven’t had in 5 years. A mystery key that opened a long forgotten lock. Too much clutter. Once I stripped the keychain down, it looked too empty – so I had to add something. Then I remembered my trinket from the Manilow concert last fall, and now Barry is on my keychain.

Last week, my fiber friend Katy (who reads all the knit blogs but still needs one of her own) & I took the boys over to Splashtown. She drove her minivan, so I tossed my keys in the cupholder after I got in. While she was driving she looked down and exclaimed, “That’s BARRY!” Now every time I look at my keys I giggle and think of her awe and amazement over my Manilow keychain. (I’m sure she was in awe and amazed. She couldn’t have been terrified and shocked.)

So, what’s on your keychain? Are there keys lingering there that have no home anymore? Cute keychains that bring back happy memories? Have a photo to share? Come on, we want to see them! (If you’re on Flickr, I’ve created a keychains group!)

On The Inside…

Your Inner European is French!

Smart and sophisticated.

You have the best of everything – at least, *you* think so.

Who’s Your Inner European?

How fitting is it that the quiz includes a photo of the Eiffel Tower?

I have a rather lovely headache today. My posts have been reduced to memes. Regular posting to resume soon.
