Friday Fill-In to the rescue!

It's Friday! Yay! Mr. Wookie is gone! Yay! Why "Yay!"? Well...he's on a camping trip with squadronmates that will involved a 5-hour drive to the trailhead, a 8.5 mile hike to the Wilderness, and a lot of male bonding over the weekend. And when dudes get together, you know there will be foolish antics and most-likely nudity. I'll pass on the 5-hour drive and the nudity. I'm a true Oregonian. We don't drive more than 30 minutes for a trailhead. That's how we do it.

Oh wait, you don't care about that. You want my answers. And besides my usual of "Cadillac margarita on the rocks, no salt, please" or "Stoli and tonic, lemon wedge, please," let's get to them. I always look forward to Fridays...and even more today since I have a slobbery dog as a bedmate for the next few days. And a dinner date with Running Buddy since her husband will also be on this trip.

If you could have a private concert with any singer, who would it be?  submitted by An Air Force Wife’s Blog
Well, I have a certain love for the "August and Everything After" album by Counting Crows. But Brad Paisley is pretty cute to see in concert. But I do love me some Beyonce belt-outs. Hmm...

Is there anything you do to supplement your family’s income? submitted by Our Life, One Adventure at a Time
Well I work, but I don't define that as "supplementing." I'm an able-minded individual with a college degree and the desire to scour for work even if it takes 4 months in a (still) shitty Californian economy. It may not have been pretty as I temp'd my way to my current job (the job I had in the fall I hated, but the money was good. Too bad I can't survive off just money alone, I need to love everything about the job).

As far as supplementing, I don't sell my eggs, I don't moonlight as a bartender, and I don't dabble in porn. I work because I love being independent, making my own money, using my degree, and being a contributing member, both financially and physically, to our home.

Sometimes my inner feminist gets the best of me.

During your pregnancy (whether past, present, or future), what did you nickname your unborn baby before you knew the sex? submitted by Explosions of Love
Hahahaa - well if the Wookie & Co. household were to procreate, the nickname could only be Star Wars related. Better start that therapy fund early then...

Have you ever won a blog giveaway?  If so what did you win? submitted by Mrs. O’s Life
No. Gar. Who wants to rig one for me?

If I looked into your refrigerator right now, what would I find? submitted by Married to the Army
Lots of produce (corn on the cob, wax beans, foliage, etc). 2 slices of leftover pizza. 2 bottles of Somersault Ale. And a fresh block of cheese. Woof.


  1. Bahaha I thoroughly enjoy that you would give your unborn child a star wars nickname. Although, I have absolutely no idea why you think that would make then need therapy! LOL

  2. A therapy fund for your unborn (and unconceived) baby! haha It's never too early to start!
