WWTK--Pick-up Lines, Guilty Pleasures and Such

Time once again to do the We Want To Know thing with the lovely hostesses--Mamarazzi, Janette, Impulsive Addict and Seriously Shawn.
Click on the link and go see all the lovely ladies and their answers.  It lets you be a bit nosy, it's fun.

Questions this week come from Seriously Shawn:
  1. What is the best, or worst, pick up line you have ever been given?  It's been so long since I've been in a position to get a pick up line, but I do remember the one that Nick used in German class--So, when are you going to cook me dinner?  And yes it worked.  I responded that I lived in the dorms, if he could stand microwaved mac-n-cheese, then we were all set. 
  2. What is your most and least favorite day of the week?  I love Saturdays.  A whole day where we can make our own plans, do nothing or be as industrious as we want.  Saturdays have so much promise.  The day I hate--Tuesdays.  It's not a Monday (which aren't my favorite either) and it's not close enough to the weekend to have any redeeming qualities.  It's a sort of non-day and I drag through them most of the time.
  3. How many hours of sleep do you require each night?  To function coherently I need around 7.5-8 hours of sleep a night.  Usually bed around 10:00-10:30 and up at 6:00.  Not my preferred schedule but if I'm not up early, no one else is up at all.
  4. Is there a song that takes you back in time? What is it and what memory is it attached to?  There are a lot of snogs that I listen to and they take me back to high school or college.  Memories float along with the notes every time I hear them.  The most fun one is attached to Devo's Whip It.  The first time I heard that song was the first summer I knew Nick.  I was down in Laramie visiting him after the school year had ended and we got to his place and his roommate had gone hit a yard sale that morning and found a Devo record.  As we walked into the living room he was standing by the stereo and bouncing along to Whip It and singing along too.  I had never heard that song and that image is indelibly tied to that song now.   I always smile about that image when ever I hear even a bit of Whip It.
  5. What is your biggest guilty pleasure?  Oh, I have lots of guilty pleasures.  There are TV guilty pleasures, reading guilty pleasures, eating guilty pleasures, but the biggest guilty pleasure I have right now has go to be ice cream after the boys go to bed--so I don't have to share.  Butter pecan, Rocky Road, strawberry, mint chip, doesn't matter, as long as I don't have to share.
Now go link up your answers and find out what everyone else said--go on go!



  1. Ice cream! Oh, how I wish I could eat ice cream after the kids go to bed! Unfortunately, my mid-section and hips pay for it, so I have to eat it earlier in the day...which means I have to share! T_T

    Loved your pick-up line story! ^_^

  2. I giggled about the not having to share bit, you always have to have at least SOMETHING to yourself, right?!

    A lot of people keep saying Mondays are the worst, but Mondays go by quick for me...Tuesdays, ugh.

  3. Yes! Tuesday is by far the worst!

  4. Whio-it whip it good. love that song!
    Tuesday is pretty pointless.

  5. haha! I remember when I was a kid waking up unexpectedly before Mom went to bed and catching her eating ice cream...she always looked so guilty!!

    And I totally hear you on the Saturday thing. Yay Saturdays!

  15. Love butter pecan ice cream--is it wrong that sometimes I pick it just because my husband doesn't like it and I know I won't have to share?
