Meet Me Monday - No Pepsi

My first time playing along with Meet Me On Monday hosted at Never Growing Old.

1.  What jewelry do you wear 24/7?

Right off the bat my dullness is revealed: the only piece of jewelry I wear all the time is my thin gold wedding band. I'm one of those people who can't stand to sleep while wearing any jewelry, so at night everything else comes off.

2.  Do you twirl your spaghetti or cut it?

I employ the twist/twirl with a cut at the end or else I seem to get stuck in an endless twirl.

3.  How many siblings do you have?

I am the oldest of four girls. My closest in age sister was only 13 months younger (she passed away when she was 18 yrs old from leukemia). Our younger sisters are identical twins. When the twins came home from the hospital, we each claimed one for ourselves.

4.  Were you named after anyone?

Not a someone, but a something. A song...perhaps you know it. I do share my middle name, Lee, with my dad.

5.  Coke or Pepsi?

Neither. I stopped drinking soda nine years ago. I get iced green tea (straight up, no sweetener) from Starbucks now. Before I quit, it was NO Pepsi - Coke for me.

Heh, what a fun meme!

Okay, so. #1) wedding ring. And yes, I take it off when I go to bed too.

#2) Twirl, with a fork and spoon.

#3) Two full sibs, three half.

#4) No. Although my mother wanted to name me Victoria after my great grandmother, but my dad's choice was Patricia. I guess he won ;)

#5) Neither anymore. Although it used to be Pepsi all the way. Now it's either ice tea or just plain water.

i've always wondered what the green tea from Starbucks was like. the boys and i are pretty much 'green tea snobs' when we go to the States...oh yeah....sugar? lemon? flavors? puh-lease!! ;-) just give us green tea. that's it.
i may have to give s'bucks a try!

Hye Trish, thanks for playing along. Where do you fit in birth order-wise? Oldest, middle or youngest?

Lee said...

Debbie - a green tea connoisseur?! Can't wait to get your opinion on the iced green tea at Starbucks. I like it straight up, no sweetener.

Trish said...

I am #5 out of six. The three half sibs came first, then a sister, myself, and a brother.

And yes, the iced green tea at starbucks without sweetner! Me too

My original wedding ring is a very thin gold band- DD2 wears it now because I can't fit it on my fingers anymore. Hubs and I have four daughters and his mother was the oldest of four daughters! Love that skit from SNL! That's when the show was always worth watching!

Kristi said...

Thanks for stopping by today! I'm with you on the green tea...except I like mine sweetner. I also was a Coke girl (Diet Coke to be exact!)
Love how you used pictures for your answers...and laughed at the SNL reference! :)

I only wear my wedding ring too so don't feel bad. And kudos to you for not drinking soda...that is such a good thing. And my heart just broke to hear about you sister...that must have been so hard.
