Viva La Vida

This kitty was too cute!

I haven't done a meme in a while... so how about 2 for 1?

Name the seven places you go most frequently each week and list the distance from your door.


Duane Reade Drugstore - 3/10 of a mile
Bus Stop to pick up Hubby from NYC - 1/2 a mile
School to drop off/pick up kids - 6/10 of a mile
Bank - 8/10 of a mile
Dunkin Donuts - 1/2 a mile

Town Market - 8/10 of a mile
Bookstore - Barnes & Noble 3 miles/Borders 2 miles

Yep, I live LARGE! NOT! lol Even though I live in the most populated area per square mile in the U.S., our little small town is great, and maintains that small town atmosphere!

Come on and play along!

Here is Meme #2 - Some Quirky Questions!

1. If you could only eat one fruit for an entire year and that fruit would magically be in season and ripe that full year, which fruit would you choose and why?

Well, in light of my recent blood work results - I say banana.

But, no Paul, just eating bananas and sitting in the sun isn't enough right now (to answer your question in comments on the last entry).

2. What is something that makes you sad?

Hmmm... this hard for me because many things can make me sad. To pick one, I would say I get very sad to see how often when you turn on the news there is violence being perpetrated against children. It rips my heart out.

3. What would you do if you came home from an extended vacation and found that someone else was living in your house?

Wow, I guess call the police! lol

4. What US President, alive or otherwise, would you like to have dinner with?

Okay... um, 'otherwise'? I am thinking that 'alive' or 'dead' are the only two options, right? Anyone? Okay... moving on...

I would most like to have dinner with George Washington. So many questions to ask...

5. What is your opinion on multitasking while driving? (Reading a book or work documents, changing clothes, fixing hair, applying make up, shaving your face, et cetera)

I do not do that when driving. When the car is moving, all focus in on operating it safely and watching out for the others that you cannot control.

After seeing the results of a great many car accidents during my years at the plastic/reconstructive surgeons office - you take the results of force on the human body pretty damn seriously.

6. Do you ever multitask while driving? If so, how often would you say you are guilty of it?


7. Do you tend to be early, on time, fashionably late or LATE to work and work related events? Do you tend to be more or less punctual for non-work related events?

I do not work outside of the home now, but everyone who knows me will be chuckling. I am the epitome of 'the early person'. Always. lol Especially when I worked!

8. What is a quirk your significant other has that you would define as "cute"? If you have no SO, what is a quirk you find cute in a potential SO?

Hmmm... Hubby always says that there is a 200lb limit on 'cute' and he tops in at 6'3" and 300lbs... lol I think he is 'cute' when he checks and double checks the lids of Snapple bottles repeatedly! LOL

Okie dokie... I am done for now. I hope to see these pop up in a few of your blogs!

It is a GORGEOUS fall day here! I hope it is the same with you!

Tonight we are having Taylor Ham and Cheese (fried) on rolls for dinner! It is football day, and the Giants just beat the 49ers (Yay) and the Jets are on playing the Raiders. Tied 3-3 right now, but GO FAVRE!

be well...

Gillie said...

I don't even think I could come up with seven places in a week. Since I became a SAHM I never really go anywhere (grocery, school, karate, target, piano, library, gas station~oohhh I guess I can get 7!).

Chris/cacklinrosie101 said...

Everything is close to me also, and I love it. I hate making lots of long trips. Drive me crazy. LOL at the meme. What would Blogger be without memes.

It was a beautiful fall day here today also but gets so darned cold at night...brrr


It's Just Me ~ Katie! said...

I missed the Meme's and the "Real" you put in every answer. While writting my book, I've had many kitty moments. Take care and enjoy your week,

D said...

Go Bills :) even without power... LOL Loved your answers

Chrissie said...

Haha I was thinking of a meme the other day. I guess I'll play along later. Great answers and cute kitty.
Take care, Chrissie

Call me Paul said...

But still, you gotta admit, just eating bananas and sitting in the sun for a while would be cool!

Hi Dawn,
Funny to read the comments about "multi-tasking while driving." This is one of my pet peeves. By coincidence, I just got out of a cab (in Korea) where the driver was "multitasking." He drove like a maniac, swerving lanes, no indicator lights, etc. etc. At one point he slammed on the brakes and had to swerve to avoid a collision with a Mini Cooper. I yelled at him, called him an idiot but he didn't undertand a word I said ...

I'd love to meet Bill Clinton.....i think most of us do not travel far from our homes even those who work outside the home. Most accidents happen close to your home too...which is always a scary thing. XO

Eatting dinner with a President?
G.W. Bush just to ask him what in the hell were you thinking in the last 8 years?

~Rebecca Anne~ said...

Now see, this is what I've missed for a long time now...reading your Meme's~~~

I hope you have a beautiful week

Leigh said...

On trip to work for me adds up to more than all yours combined.
I think I'll do these meme's. I missed them, too. Dawn's "Beneath the Surface" has a couple, also.
:) Leigh

Bill said...

I think you do these things to get me into trouble. I'll give this Meme a try. My Regards, Bill.

Diama ~*a.k.a*~ Cherry said...

im starting to feel at home with you and your lol cats again! luv him to.

Dawn said...

I envy you, to find a Dunkin Donuts, we have to travel 45 minutes, which we do when we need a fix. LOL

Lisa said...

I am glad to hear you don't multitask while driving!! That is one of my pet peeves when I see someone not paying attention to the road.

lunarossa said...

Hi Dawn, Let me first tell you that I think you are an amazing woman!!! Then I’ve never tried a meme, so may I try here in your space? Thanks, I’ll be concise. 1) Fruit: Mango. 2) The News on tv 3) I would call the police too; 4) JFK; 5) & 6) I have the bad habit of eating (grapes, bread, cheese, etc.) when I drive. Sooner or later I will get caught! 7) I’m early for work, late for all the rest. 8) He’s when he sneezes and says “Oh dear!”
All the best. Ciao. Antonella
