Not Feeling Very Creative So Let's Have Fun With This:

Today's blog is courtesy of Ramblin' Rose. Copy this and post it on your own blog, inviting readers to participate as well...

1. WHAT TIME IS IT: 8:34 p.m.

2. NAME: Ephaniestay or Manic Mom to those who know me anonymously,

3. PIERCINGS: Ears... three on the right side (two of which closed up but if I try hard, I can still get an earring in the middle one but it always blows up and gets infected if I do this; the top piercing is not penetratable - is that a word?). One on the left side that works.

4. MOST RECENT MOVIE YOU HAVE SEEN AT THE CINEMA: Okay, I know it hasn't been long, but I cannot remember! Monster House and Ant Bully. Oh, actually it was half of Clerks 2 when the film died out on us. If you ask me this same question 24 hours from now, my answer will be Barnyard.

5. WHO DO YOU MISS: Friends from Philly.

6. PLACE OF BIRTH: Tampa, Florida

7. FAVORITE FOOD: I could live off of pizza. I love french fries even though they are disgusting. I love seafood and pasta.

8. BEEN TO AFRICA: No. Used to think I'd want to go on a safari, but now I'd probably just bitch that it's too hot and there are too many bugs and too much poop smell from the wild animals.

9. EVER BEEN TOILET PAPERING: Duh. Who hasn't? Okay, so what if I was scared of getting caught and ducked down in the back seat while my brave girlfriends TPed the house.

10. EVER LOVE SOMEONE SO MUCH IT MADE YOU CRY: Yeah, but I don't harp on it. Plus, I married him.

11. EVER BEEN IN A CAR ACCIDENT: Yes. Not worth writing about.

12. CROUTONS OR BACON BITS: I'm right there with Ramblin's answer of "can I have both"... But if I had to choose, croutons!

13. FAVORITE DAY OF THE WEEK: Friday or Saturday, but you know what they say about stay-at-home mothers--every day's a Saturday.

14. FAVORITE RESTAURANT: Catch 35

15. FAVORITE FLOWER: Those ones I smell when I take my walk that are probably just fragrant weeds. Or Gardenias for their smell. Carnations for their longevity.

16. FAVORITE SPORT TO WATCH: Basketball

17. FAVORITE DRINK:



18. FAVORITE ICE CREAM: Peppermint Stick with Chocolate Fudge

19. DISNEY OR WARNER BROTHERS: Disney, but this is a stupid question. I think I should make up my own list of things--it would be more exciting.

20. FAVORITE FAST FOOD RESTAURANT: Chick Fila, which they do not have here in Chicago, but I got my share of it when I lived in Florida and Philly.

21. WHAT COLOR IS YOUR BEDROOM CARPET: Off white. And who cares? How about, what color are the walls in my office, which is much more exciting! Here:



22. HOW MANY TIMES DID YOU FAIL YOUR DRIVERS TEST: None, but when the guy told me to turn right, I took a left, and I went over a curve a little bit. Hey, I just remembered I actually chose a special outfit to wear to my drivers test so it could be in the picture. What a dork.

23. BEFORE THIS ONE, FROM WHOM DID YOU GET YOUR LAST EMAIL: Some penile implant company.

24. WHAT DO YOU DO MOST OFTEN WHEN YOU ARE BORED? When I'm bored, it usually means I'm depressed so I'm probably sleeping. If you mean what do I do if I have free time, the answer is either read or blog or surf blogs and stuff on the internet I don't need to really know about.

25. USUAL BEDTIME: late.

26. WHO WILL RESPOND TO THIS EMAIL THE QUICKEST: I hope everyone who reads this will reply in the comments and answer some of the questions even though it's kind of lame questions and I could make it really much more interesting.

27. WHO IS THE MOST LIKELY NOT TO RESPOND TO THIS EMAIL?
Hotwire, R Martini, and Drew at Drew's Muse. Yes, I AM CHALLENGING YOU BOYS.

28.FAVORITE TV SHOWS: Don't watch TV, but did enjoy a snippet of Sesame Street today where Jamie Foxx was hanging out with Elmo and Cookie Monster.

29. LAST PERSON YOU WENT TO DINNER WITH: My family, last night. Buffalo Wild Wings. First time there ever. Last time as well. We never go out to dinner during the week either.

30. FORD OR HOLDEN: What is a Holden? Seriously, I do not know. If it's a Ford or a Holden Caulfield, I choose a Ford, because I have a Windstar and because I could not understand the hype over The Catcher in the Rye. Sorry.

31. WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW: Crickets, and hubby telling me to come up to help get the kids to bed, and also the clicking of the keys from the computer and also the humming of the A/C.

32. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE COLOR: Red or pink to wear. Also green and yellow. I am a Fall color kind of gal and love all hues of orange.

33. HOW MANY TATTOOS DO YOU HAVE: ONE!



34. HOW MANY PETS DO YOU HAVE: Zero and I like it that way. We used to own cats, and don't ask what happened to them. Puck died, after we got Buko, and then we also had Cyclops, the cutest little black kitty with seriously one eye because the other one was removed because it was infected or something.

35. WHICH CAME FIRST THE CHICKEN OR THE EGG: Who gives a shit.

Answer them or not, but I'd really like to know.
