Kat asked me to do this vaguely suggestive list. And, as it's vaguely suggestive, and she asked, and she called me "darling," I'm going to do it.

No work because of MLK Jr. Day... I slept in. 9:00

Kat said...

You know, I was drunk when I started answering this questionnaire. I think that's why I didn't notice the missing questions.

Ryan Oakley said...

You're right on #5. People who eat breakfast are communists for sure. They think that every time of day should have food no matter what it has done to deserve it.

blog Portland said...

I'm at odds over this post. My day goes all wrong unless I have a proper breakfast. However, sour cream and onion Pringles are the perfect food. We seem to have reached an impasse.

muse-in-training said...

I just have to know how you talked your husband into a pink bathroom... The information may come in handy soon...

T. said...

I've enjoyed reading your blog in the battle of the blog challenges. I vote on most of them.

That Jessica McClintock dress is crazy. Way too much reflective poofy fabric.

TheIdleReceptionist said...

Vely intelesting, dahling.

Angela said...

When I was an editorial assistant, my favorite designer/boutique was Old Navy, with a bi-yearly splurge at Express.(And that splurge necessitated a bi-yearly binge of Ramen noodles.)

Clearly, I was doing something wrong.

otilius said...

Question: How many pairs of Pink Shoes do you have in your current rotation?

Marcia said...

blog portland - it's ok, we can still be friends. The love of sour cream and onion pringles will unite us.

muse - I lucked out - we rent an apartment in a really old building and the master bath in this unit just happens to have white and pink tiles - subtle, but perfect for me.

angela - I spend waaaaaay too much money on clothes and shoes - I honestly don't know how I do it.

Otilius - Do you really want to know? I think I have 6 all pink pairs in the rotation (the 3 in my header, 2 pairs of flip-flops, and a pair of chinese slippers I bought on the street in NYC), and if you count partially pink ones, then you've got to count my new lime green skimmers what I'll post about today. So 7. Is that bad?

Elizabeth said...

Mmmm... a mojito sounds good.

The Sad Bostonian said...

#10 - It's Saturday, I'm at work at a Client in Portland (ME) and 3 of my friends drove up to Portland to ski with me today. They have gone to the mountain w/o me, and I arrived at work late and hung-over. Since it's Saturday, I'm "allowed' to use my iPod, and reading this entry has inspired my selection. I now feel marginally better about my life. Thanks Chicken Marcia, I owe you one.
