Weekend ditherings, and a meme

Much of this weekend was spent on some much-needed house work. Our place was/is in desperate need of organization, paring down our things, and finding homes for wedding gifts. We re-organized the living room, and that's made a nice difference already, and hopefully things will start coming together. I've finally called my parents' decorator for help with picking colours for our front hallway, and living and dining room. We need help with the plaster work and the hole in the ceiling, and figure it's best left to the experts. We've stripped most of the paint from the wood but they still need work. Finally, since the kitchen here might actually be original to the house (built in 1942) and is made of plywood and is useless when it comes to storage, we've been playing with the Ikea kitchen planner. When we go to peoples houses Dave and I have both accidentally slammed drawers closed because we're used to having to muscle ours closed (they're just open plywood on plywood so it takes some force to close them). Oooh am I getting excited at the prospect of a new kitchen!

We also ran errands and I got a dress to wear to a wedding next weekend, and I got my half of the thank you cards done. I think just to get that monkey off our back would be awesome.

Finally, I owe Sara a meme:

1. If you were a muppet, and had to pick ANOTHER muppet to be your best friend, who would you pick?
I think Elmo would exhaust me, Grover might be a bit too silly, and I'd have to pick Kermit.

2. Would you rather live on Sesame Street, with the Muppets on the Muppet Show, or down at Fraggle Rock?
Muppets for sure. I think it'd be a nonstop party!

3.If you were forced to date a Walt Disney Charcter (human or animal), who would it be?
Not a huge Disney fan... I really have no idea.

4. If you could only eat one vegetable ever again, what would it be?
Broccoli. How I love the stuff (mushrooms are a very close second though)!

5. Do you have any recurring dreams?
None that I remember. Most of my dreams are completely bizarre (ie Dave taking our moose out for a walk so they could mate, me being very pregnant and worried wolves would eat our dogs... interpret that, Dr. Freud! On second thought maybe not.)

6. If you could have a superpower, what would it be?
Teleporting all the way!

7. Did you rename your Cabbage Patch Kids, or keep them with the name Xaiver Roberts gave them? What were they called?
I think the one I had kept the name she came with. No idea what that was.

8. First Concert you ever went to?
Bruce Cockburn when I was 5 (quickly followed by Sharon, Lois, and Bram) - and if you're counting "sans parents" then Barenaked Ladies in Peterborough when I was 14.

9. Does it bother you that Sebastian Bach from Skid Row was acting in Gilmore Girls?
Oh how I love that show and am addicted . Nope, think he's kinda cute though not attracted to his character.

10. What are the Best 3 Simpsons episodes?
Only three? I love them all!
1. The one where Homer meets Mindy and falls for her and presses the button for the stimulator, I mean Elevator! and then sees Barney dancing in a bikini.
2. We put the spring in Springfield! - the one with they try to shut down the, um, burlesque house.
3. The one about SUVs where they have a Canyonero ("Can you name a truck with 4 wheel drive, smells like a steak and seats 35!")

12. Who do you tag?
Steve! And anyone else who wants to!

I would pay good money to live with the Muppets for a week. Any longer than that and I think I might go postal. Miss Piggy gets on my last nerve.

It would be cool to renovate your kitchen. I'm a big fan of IKEA. Our condo is fairly new ... less than ten years old ... so it's too soon to rip out the kitchen :(
