Quick Meme

I  have some more updates and things to post but I got tagged in an little Q and A meme by iknit2purl2 earlier this week on Twitter. Since I'm in the middle of a dye session (and taking a break for dinner), I thought I'd do a quick post for now.

1. What's your staple meal (ie what meal do you cook most often when you can't be bothered to be adventurous)?

Beef and Rice. It's so easy and every time I make it I forget how good it is and how much I like it. Recipe follows:

Cook 2 oz. of lean meat and 1-2 tablespoons of mushrooms in 2 tablespoons of oil. Make a cup of brown rice as directed on the package. Place rice and 1/2 cup of tomato sauce in a bowl. Mix meat and mushrooms in with rice and sauce. So easy and sooooo yummy. (Note: This makes one serving. Double or triple as needed)

2. What do you want to be when you grow up?

An indie dyer. I'd also like to run a non-profit and hopefully one day I'll be a mom and devoted wife as well :)

3. What books are you reading at the moment?

David Sedaris's When You Are Engulfed in Flames

4. How do you relax?

Knitting. Taking a long bubble bath and reading a magazine. Having a tipple and watching Family Guy or some Brit-coms.

5. What color are the interior walls of your home?

All the walls except my kitchen and bathroom are standard issue apartment white. The kitchen is standard issue apartment tan and the bathroom has wallpaper with little jewel toned crests on it (also standard issue).

6. What is your guiltiest pleasure?

Chocolate Devotion ice cream from Cold Stone and Lady Gaga dance tunes (though not necessarily together).

7. What time is bedtime and getting up time?

If I have something to get up for then bedtime is between 10:30 and 11 p.m. If not then it's usually between midnight and 2 a.m. During the school year I get up around 6:30 to go to work and during the summer (or if I don't have somewhere to go) then it's usually between 9 and 10 a.m.

8. How long do you spend reading blogs (per day or per week)?

I spend about 2 hours reading blogs 3-4 times a week. I will admit that I check Facebook and Twitter excessively when I'm at home.

I'm tagging @KnittingKnoobie, @KraftyKash, and @wendyhoomo.

Love your answers! I was telling Lynn that I haven't seen a Meme in *forever* so it was fun to see one again.

I adore Lady Gaga! And how cool that you're getting to do one of the things you wanted to do when you grow up (dye yarn) :)
