Krista asked, "Who is your favorite Muppet?
While I post more videos featuring Beaker,
my favorite would be Gonzo.
Q asked, "If you were a kitchen utensil, which would you be?"
Our freshman year of college, we actually had a poster over our couch that featured our personified utensils. Mine was the whip. It's versatile, and nothing does sauce quite like a whip. ;o)
Storyqueen asked, "Cake or pie?"
Pie, especially now that peaches are in season, I love peach custard pie.
Jackee said, "Ooh! Ooh! Ooh! I've one: How did you meet your husband?"
This is actually a fascinating story (blood, ER, late-night card games, love triangles), but it's long, and I'm not willing to post the whole thing on the internet (because it involves people I want to still like me). To make a long story short, it all started with a dare (that involved me) and a passing flirtation (that did not). I became friends with Ben's cousin/roommate that night because he said something to me in Spanish as I was leaving, and I answered him. It's funny how something so small can affect your whole life. If Jeff hadn't said those six words in Spanish, we wouldn't have become friends, and I doubt I'd have ever met Ben. That would have been a shame. It's been almost 13 years since the night I met his cousin, and we'll have been married for 12 in December.
Sue asked, "Question for you is, since you like Coldplay, what do you think of Gwynneth Paltrow, the lead singer's spouse?"
I'm afraid I don't know enough about her to have an opinion. I'm terrible with most celebrities.
Emily asked, "So did you name your baby after Gwynneth Paltrow?"
No, Gwenyth is an old family name on Ben's side of the family. His mom's dad was Welsh.
She also asked, "And...how come you are so amazing??!! :)"
Is this where I confess to stealing magical vegetables* from your garden? No, you may not have my first born, but you're welcome to borrow her. :o)
Al asked, "Did you think you would get any questions you couldn't or wouldn't answer?"
No, but I could have spent an entire post or more answering each of Jackee's questions. That said, I'm happy with the questions that were asked and grateful to all of you for caring. Thank you!
*Emily has an AMAZING garden with gigantic vegetables, but I don't have to steal them. She shares.
