5 is a delightful odd number

Suse led me to Bec, and as I haven't meme'd in a bit, this looked fun....

5 things I wish were in my freezer:

*A batch of my mom's homemade spaghetti sauce
(with extra garlic, please!)
*A Pepperidge Farm layer cake
*A Molson Goldon, approaching icy-ness
*ice cream sandwiches
*more of the halibut that Seth caught this summer
(I'm greedy, we still have some...)

5 things that shouldn't be in my wardrobe:

*The short black lace-up granny boots
that I used to go dancing in back in the 80's
(my redhead calls them my "polio boots")
*many sweaters that never see the light of day in our
overly temperate winters
*holey undies that crack up my 9-year-old girlie
*travel clothes from when Chico's was new and cool
*a pair of simple, low-heeled slides which I think are
really too narrow for my canoe-sized feet

5 things I hate about my car:
(this is tough--I love my old granny truck)

*no airbags
*broken tailgate
*eats batteries--new one like clockwork every year
*nowhere at all to put cups
*the exorbitant fee I must pay to register her
every two years-- $32! (heh-heh)

5 things I should throw out of my pack:

*melted crayons
*gum and mints that I don't like
*multitudinous cash register receipts
*used sticky-notes (mostly doodled on by the girlie)
*old aspirins and allergy pills

5 things that I don't want to admit are in my bathroom:

*a shower that should be declared by the EPA
to be unsafe for human use
*a Nora Roberts book
*a classic package of Band-Aids which will NEVER
be opened because they're in the tin box that they used
to sell them in when I was a girl
*wet wipes

Is there anyone out there reading this? If so, please consider yourself tagged! To quote from the wonderful Eva Ibbotsen in The Secret Of Platform 13,

"Play up and play the game!"

(Too much information about work and life in general and more photos to come this weekend, if I make it through Friday...)

I'm drooling over your freezer wish list - have never heard of Pepperidge Farm or Molson Goldon but, whatever they are, they sound WONDERFUL!

Am not-so-secretly thrilled that almost everyone seems to have a bag full of useless receipts.

And the Band-Aids in the tin? I say get them out of the bathroom and into a groovy deep frame on the wall in your hall, or wherever quirky works in your house! Or eBay...

Thanks for playing and introducing yourself - I hope we keep meeting like this. Bec.

I too have no idea what Molson Goldon is.

But I DO have my very own pair of Polio Boots. Which I will never look at in quite the same way again.

Love the list of things that should not be found in a bathroom but alas I have several items on the list. Don't know if I should be happy or scared. :-). I wonder if I should try putting one of my O'douls in the freezer. Couldn't hurt.
