A Simple Request

We interrupt this regularly (irregularly, occasionally, or randomly) scheduled blog posting to bring you a brief request from an overworked, uninspired blogger.

The Back Story
Aside from deli men hitting on me and my love for SRH (which apparently is unrequited, since he didn’t even bother to mention our anniversary on his blog), I don’t have much energy to post right now.

For starters, I have been crazy busy at work for the past few weeks. I know, go figure. It’s either feast or famine, and right now I’m feasting. Or famine-ing, if we are referencing my amount of free time. But we probably aren’t, so feast it is.

I have three nights scheduled out of the house this week. And, unfortunately, they’re not out drinking and carousing. They are all work-related. Stupid work.

I still have Keith Richards wreaking havoc in my liver and gall bladder. To be fair, it is getting better. I think it’s because I’m not plying him with booze and women, but I’m not entirely sure.

We’re giving Zane at least two rescue breathing treatments a day - which is not stellar, but it’s not awful, either.

I am this close to naming Zane’s OT as my official Nemesis, but I keep feeling badly because she’s so young and eager to please.

Anyway, all of this has left me with precious little time for figuring out what to blog about, let alone actually writing a post.

That’s where your assistance is needed, dear readers.

The Request

To steal a page from SRH, who regularly gets people to provide blog fodder for him, I’m requesting that you ask me questions.
Make queries. Interrogate me.

What do you want to know about me? Ask me whatever you want, and I’ll answer in my next post. (or in the comments, if it’s a simple question.)

Come on, lay them on me. I am a woman of many mysteries, but I’m offering to give you my secrets (well, not those secrets), if only you are brave enough to ask.

What do you want to know?

Okay, miss grumbling-about-my-not-mentioning-our-12th-anniversary.

What did we do for our first actual date then? No fair asking me either.

Ok, I'm a relative late-comer so these may have been answered already.

1. How did you choose Zane's name?
2. What's your favorite quote?

4. Since we're cosmic twins and all, can I end every comment on your blog from now on with "Cosmic Twin Powers Activate!" (If you don't understand this, I'm sure SRH has knowledge of where this phrase originated.)

Can't wait to hear your answers - you have a lot of great questions! I hope things calm down for you soon.

Thanks for the questions. Answers are forthcoming. Most likely they'll come forth in small batches - like fine chocolates.

But they will be neither fine, nor chocolate.
