5 Question Friday

So, my dear friend Kelly did this last week. I saw it on her blog yesterday and eagerly waited to do one myself today. I'm hoping that I can get more traffic to my blog this way, although I never have anything exciting that I post. It originally comes from Mama M  and I'm very excited to be doing my first 5 Question Friday!

1. Do you know how to play a musical instrument?

I used to, does that count?!? I started playing the piano at a young age, can't remember for sure when. I took lessons for quite a while. If I were to sit down at a piano to play, would I remember how? That's questionable. I can still play chopsticks though but really who can't?

I did also used to play the clarinet in school although I was never really good at it. I played through middle school and at least through my freshman year of high school which is when I probably stopped. I hated practicing it and just never really liked it. The whole thought of sucking on that stick, what the heck was it called, to get it wet to play. It was like dragging your teeth across a popsicle stick! Have you ever done that? Ack, just the thought sends shivers down my spine, I HATE that feeling!
2. What is your pet peeve while driving?

People who don't know how to merge! Seriously, drives me CRAZY!!! There are quite a few spots on my way back and forth to work that the traffic merges and people are insane. It should be alternate merging as the signs say but some people just don't understand that. The ones that drive me the most crazy are the ones that are at your tail bumper and then at the last possible minute speed up to get in front of you. Seriously? Did you HAVE to do that?!?!

I also find it quite annoying that in a state where driving while using your handheld cell phone is banned, it's perfectly acceptable to be reading a newspaper, a book, lighting a cigarrette, etc. How is that any more safe?
3. Would you rather have a housekeeper or unlimited spa services?

Ohhhh, this is a hard one. Can't I alternate week to week? I think I'd have to take the, I'll take the unlimited spa, I'll take the housekeeper. Aaahhhh, I can't decide!!!
4. Is there a song that you hear that will take you back to the moment, like a junior high or high school dance?

Oh, where to start. Let's see...there's Hotel California which was played at the end of EVERY dance in high school. Or, there's the song that played at our graduation, the one from Breakfast Club, you know the one. "Don't you, forget about me"...Can't you hear me singing it? When I'm home and edit this blog I'll include links. There are so many others, I may need to add some additional songs later.

*edit* I'm home now and wanted to add in links to the songs. So here is Don't You Forget About Me by Simple Minds. This is the song that was played at my high school graduation.
And here is Hotel California which was seriously played at the end of EVERY school dance. (Oh wait, now I'm repeating myself)

5. What song best represents your life right now?
Manic Monday except it would be more appropriate if there was one for every day of the week, LOL.

And of course any childrens song because we spend SO much time singing them in my house.

And since Mama M mentioned the song that she'd like for her mother-son dance, here is the one that I'd like when Lovebug gets married The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face

It's a reed! And it's not quite as bad as popsicle stick. But it definitely tastes pretty funky. Still, between a reed and popsicle stick - I'll take the reed. Ugh, popsicle stick. Soooooo gross. Main reason I don't like popsicles. Ewww.

I loved The Breakfast Club. Best movie ever. (Except The Princess Bride, of course.)

Mama M. said...

Ha!! "Manic Monday"! Ain't that the truth?!!

And, yup...I've done my fair share of sucking on reeds...I used to play the clarinet too!

I love the photo in your header...what a beautiful family you have!
