Sunday Stealing

(Link in meme-roll)
The Gal's Meme, Part One

What’s your favorite word or phrase?
"Actually..." In my head, it's probably more Anglo-Saxon and concise than that. I often mutter, in a British accent, "Fuck right bloody off, arsehole!" while smiling at people. I need to stop that before I get to England as THEY will bloody-well understand me and chastise me. :)
Tell us about a person who made you smile today.
I spent my afternoon at the birthday party of my 3-year-old great nephew Eli--though this photo is from a couple of months ago. Same shirt today though. lol He is as sweet-tempered as he looks in this photo, very huggy and kind-hearted.
His 10-month-old brother Jo is also dead-adorable, but that one is going to be a pistol once he gets upright and moving. We're going on vacation next month with them. It's going to be interesting; he should be walking (i.e. running) by then.
What were you doing at 8 am this morning?
(as opposed to 8 a.m. last night?) I think I was just leaving the bathroom and going back to bed. Not that I slept more, naturally.
What were you doing 30 minutes ago?
I was just starting this. It's been kind of a nutty half hour--making something to eat, seeing Beast off to a meeting, finding the photos of the boys, watching the women's gymnastics from the Olympics....
What is your favorite holiday? Why?
I love Thanksgiving. I love the reason for it, and I love the food and all the family gatherings.
Tell us about a visit to another country.
We're going to England in 29 days. My nephew Jesse is getting married near Bristol. We're renting a house with my niece and her family (above) and her parents (my sister & bro-in-law). We might not kill each other. It's probably the first time I've gone overseas without a mapped-out plan of what is available to do in the area. I have a couple of lists of sites and restaurants, but otherwise, TOTALLY playing it by ear, and that's fine.
What is the last thing you said aloud?
"Bon voyage!" to Beast as he left. Being silly: he'll be back by 9.
What was the last thing you had to drink?
I'm working on Diet Dr. Pepper now. Just finished some Diet Coke from McD's.
What are you wearing right now?
Army green clamdiggers and a white (with some blue) T-shirt, over the requisite underwear. And a layer of sweat.
What was the last thing you ate?
Some angel food cake bites. I should get some fruit salad to go with, since that was the deal.
Have you bought any new clothing items this week?
When was the last time you ran?
I can't even remember.
What’s the last sporting event you watched?
Still watching women's gymnastics on TV.
If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
...mountains. Please. Alone.
Who is the last person you sent a comment/message to on Facebook?
I posted something in a Facebook group an hour or so ago. Need to do my "who died in a gunfight today" post after I finish this meme.
Ever go camping? If yes, tell us about one time.
I have. There are not enough words in English to express the amount of dislike I have for camping. No plumbing, no heat or a/c, bugs, animals snuffling around outside, dirt, hard ground... And allergies. Every . Single . Time.
Do you have a tan?
I have some connected freckles on my arms. That's about the best I get.
Have you ever lost anything down a toilet?
...maybe that's where my mind went. (no, otherwise)
What is your guilty pleasure?

Bristol was the jumping off point for the British Navy to harrass the Danes back.
The kids are so cute!
You should go Glamping. It's a lot less, well, buggy.
Have a great time in the Bristol environs. Take lots of pix!
