1. Grab the book nearest to you, turn to page 23, and find line 4. What is it?
|Brownie uniform from the 1970s|
2. How many times a day do you say Hi?
25? Mostly to my kids in the morning and people in the office, walking in the hallways or in the coffee room.
3. Have you ever worn a uniform?
Every Tuesday during my sophomore year I wore a blue skirt, white polo shirt, and yellow jacket!
We even had a song we sang at the end of each meeting, which I still remember. Funny enough, my sister Nadine (and a number of my younger friends) also became a Spur...and one of the Spurs a year ahead of me became Nadine's sister-in-law! During my year, Spurs became coed--we had our first (brave) male member, a young Tom Selleck lookalike. I remember that the year involved a lot of sewing! (Uniform, doll for my Big Spur, scrapbook for my little Spur, Lucia Bride costume)
With some quick Internet sleuthing, I unearthed the PLU yearbook from that year and took a few screen captures. Hilarious!

right--the shortest one!)
4. What do you think about the most?
Hmm...hard question. Probably at the moment, all the various dramas going on around me (fortunately not in my own family or job, but in many other parts of my life). Otherwise, my family, my job, what I'm reading.
5. How many keys are on your keyring?
Seven--two hardly ever used but a pain in the ass to remove from the keyring.
6. What was the last thing you bought?
Lunch at Cha Cha Cha for me and a close friend going through cancer treatment.
7. Are you growing anything these days?
Tomatoes, lettuce, eggplant (doing horribly), dill, zucchini, basil, snap peas (yum--had some yesterday)...also, our apples will be a bumper crop this year!
8. What is under your bed?
Some hand weights, ear plugs that have fallen behind the bed, Mike's shoes, a Costco coupon book.
Love, family, friends
10. What is the strangest word you used this week?
Must be something I used in "Words With Friends" (my new addiction)--not sure...
Stay tuned on Mondays for more "Listicles"!
