Meet Me on Monday!!

Welcome to the 26th edition of 
"Meet Me On Monday!"
 
Blogging  is a funny thing...we tell our most intimate thoughts for all to read  and yet most of the time I find myself sitting and wondering, "who is  this person!?"  I know them...but yet I don't know them!  I want  to know who the person is behind all those words so I thought of a great  way for all of us to "meet" each other!

Every Sunday I will post five get to know you  questions that you can copy and paste into your own Monday post and we  can all learn a little more about each and every one of us!!

"Its a great way to to meet new friends and for others to get to know me better....one Monday at a time!!!"....as quoted by the Chacogirl!! I will make this SIMPLE and FUN!!!

I  will add a linky so we can follow who participates and get to know them  better!!  Be sure to link the POST and not just your whole blog!


Questions:

1.  How do you order your steak?
2.  Are you superstitious about anything?
3.  Who is your best friend (not including your spouse)?
4.  When is the last time your wore a dress (for the guys...a suit)?
5.  Do you have any trips scheduled?
---------------------------------------------------------------
My Answers!

1.  How do you order your steak?
     
      Well done!  I like it cooked completely...no pink whatsoever....I don't even mind if its cooked so much that its dry!  I also like it with sauteed onions!

2.  Are you superstitious about anything?

       Some things I am superstitious about:
  •   When I spill salt, I through some over my right shoulder to ward off bad luck.....I just found out that its the LEFT shoulder!  Grhhhhh!!!
  • I knock on wood when I mention how good things are, or how successfully things have been going....so that it doesn't jinx it!
  • If you walk under a ladder you will have bad luck.
  • If you blow out all of the candles on your birthday cake with the first breath you will get whatever you wish for.
  • Crossing your fingers helps to avoid bad luck and helps a wish come true.
  • I have to kiss Joe at exactly midnight on New Year's Eve to ensure another year of wedded bliss.
  • Bad luck comes in three's. 

3.  Who is your best friend not including your spouse? 

     My best friend is Eileen who has been my best friend since 9th grade!  She only lives about 10 minutes away.  Her and her husband and Joe and I go out to eat a couple of times a month.


4.  When was the last time you wore a dress?

      The last time I wore a dress was for the modeling shoot at the Eastern State Penitentiary.  Before that would have been Venti's Wedding...and before that....I can't even remember when!  I do not wear dresses...not because I don't like them, but the opportunity to wear one doesn't come up very often!  It used to be that women wore them to work...now you hard see dresses being worn!

5.  Do you have any trips scheduled?

     None right now but I'm hoping that after the first of the year we will plan our summer vacation..we usually plan it in January/February...gives us something to look forward to!!!  Somewhere WARM!!

  1. Well, I certainly don't wear dresses, but I do like my steak the same way.

    Unfortunately, my best friend lives 1000 miles away. Thank goodness for email and phones.

    I always, always put my right sock on before the left, and the same with my footwear. And I have no idea why.

  3. Sorry about forgetting the button. I think that's the first time I've left it off. I'm running on exhaustion lately and that's when mistakes occur.
    Have a great week.

  4. Wow, Well done, I am more of a medium Rare gal! I wear skirts way more than dresses but you are right I think that women wear them less and less.

  5. Oh I am a well done steak girl too - and like you, I don't mind if it's dry. Couldn't come up with a superstition off the top of my head - but I do the salt also. Have a great Monday Java!

  13. Hi Java, I had already posted today before I discovered your great hop but being a party girl (old dear) I've added myself to the list and am off to mingle, glass of mulled wine in one hand and a cocktail sausage in the other. Thank you for hosting this. I'll grab the button and go.
