I saw this meme over at what if this is as good as it gets? and thought it looked like fun.

I give you money and send you into the grocery store to pick up 5 items. You can only pick one thing from the following departments.. what is it?
1. Produce: Bell Peppers of all colors (my favorite is the red).

3. Meat: Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
4. Frozen: Frozen Broccoli
5. Dry goods: Do herbs count? I don't know.

Let's say we're heading out for a weekend getaway. You're only allowed to bring 3 articles of clothing with you. So, what's in your bag?
1. My favorite dark jeans. They can be casual or dressed up.
2. A nice shirt that can be worn several times without getting wrinkly (if necessary)
3. The black sweater with zipper that I wore after the Josh Groban concert.

If I was to listen in on one of your conversations throughout the day, what 5 phrases or words would I be most likely to hear?

2. "Oh, dear."
3. "This is a Rachael Ray recipe."
4. "Do you want JUG?" (Justice Under God---detention at school)

So, what 3 things do you find yourself doing every single day, and if you didn't get to do, you probably wouldn't be in the best mood?
1. Read! I must always read.
2. Look at my e-mail accounts (but no one ever e-mails me back!) and blogs.
3. Eat. Yum-o.

Sweet, you just scored a whole afternoon to yourself. We're talking a 3 hour block with nobody around. What 5 activities might we find you doing?

1. Lions
2. Penguins
3. Monkeys

You just scored tickets to the taping of any show that comes on t.v. of your choice. You can pick between 4, so what are you deciding between?

Somebody stole your purse/wallet…in order to get it back, you have to name 5 things you know are inside to claim it. So, what's in there?

I carry the same mints in my purse as little as it is. I do not like to carry purses. But I love to shop for them. I know, Weird!!

I love yellow and red bell peppers and I would choose Cherry Garcia ice cream. I have a pint in the freezer that my DH bought be last week and I haven't even touched it! I have been good!

Thanks, Allison! Your answers were fun too! I was delighted to find the meme on your blog. You always have such interesting ones up.

Miss Paula, that is funny! I never used to care much about purses. As long as a book would fit in it I liked it, but I kind of like them now. Ice cream is a fabulous snack! I have some in the freezer too: both of the kinds I mentioned and then some B&J's Dublin Mudslide.
