November After Hours

Welcome to another "After Hours" post.

For those new to the blog, the “After Hours” posts are more personal, get-to-know-me posts, kind of like “After the Catch” from “Deadliest Catch” without the death and maiming (er, hopefully without the death and maiming, anyway).

And now for the “After Hours” questions.

1) If you could eat only one meal the rest of your life, what would it be?

Texas Roadhouse Dallas Filet (mignon). It's like crack to me.

2) If you owned a CB radio what would your "handle" be?

Captain Quirk.

3) If you could have had the starring role in one film already made, which movie would you pick?

Alien, of course. I’d love to be Ripley.

4) Describe your "good china," whether you actually own any or not.

<Picks self up after rolling on the floor laughing>. We didn’t even bother registering for china when we got married, we just knew it wasn't going to fit our lifestyle. And now, after years of raising kids and pets, we don’t even have any matching plates. I think I still have one left from the “country” set I bought (little houses and red designs-on-a-barn) right before we were married; I have two of the set decorated with grey roses we bought around our one year anniversary; one of the white ones I bought years later when our plate inventory was dwindling; a couple of the black ones (though one set was flat dinner plates, and the other was slightly curved, so even though they’re black, it’s obvious they are from different sets . . . well, you get the picture.

My family has always cared more about what's on the plate than the plate itself. As long as I'm making my uber-delicious Fettuccine Alfredo, they'd eat it off off butter-tub libs if they had to.

5) When are you happiest?

It's hard to nail down one thing that makes me happiest; there are lots of things that fill me with bliss: when I’m camping/hunting/or just generally out in the woods; when I’m writing; when a really good book sucks me into its story world; when I’m snuggled under a blanket with hubby watching TV while a blizzard howls outside; anytime I’m visiting Kentucky, etc. I'm either an incredibly happy person, or just easily pleased. Not sure which.

6) What's worse, extremely cold weather or extremely hot weather?

Extremely hot weather. I can add more clothes when it’s cold, but there’s a limit to how much I can take off without getting arrested.

7) Chocolate or vanilla?

I like chocolate, but I don't love chocolate. I prefer vanilla ice cream and angel-food cake.

See you next week!
