Manic Monday #137

Haven’t done one of these in a while….

What is one thing you admire about each of your parents? has a great ability to bounce back from adversity. Sometimes it takes her a while to recover, but she is much stronger than she sometimes gives herself credit for, and I think she raised to strong girls, and that’s where it shows up. is very handy and knows how to do all sorts of clever things, like woodworking and plumbing and gardening (OK, what I admire most is his green thumb, because I cannot replicate it for the life of me).

Which parts of your home do you like best? I’m quite fond of the spare bedroom where my craft stuff is set up, though I can hardly keep it organized so it’s not exactly my favorite. If I could get the pillow situation figured out so I’d be more comfortable, I’d say the Poang chair in our bedroom next to the Barometer lamp (yes, both Ikea) where I do my homework, because it’s finally well-lit, I can close the door to tune out the television, and turn on the radio for some peace and relative-quiet. I’m also a fan of our bed, because it’s where I sleep, and I like sleep. Sorry, no real favorites in my current house (we are trying to sell it, you know).

Which would you prefer and why? To have every stoplight turn green upon your arrival for the rest of your life or to have one week of the best sex any person ever had? Well, that seems like quite a personal question, but I have a very non-personal answer. Seeing as how I drive very little (though more so now than when I didn’t have a car at all), and that sitting at red lights usually doesn’t anger me (unless I’m really really really late for the bus in the morning), I’m going to go with the awesome sex. Because, well, duh.
