The person below me...

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I thought it might be fun to try some games in this forum. Anyone with me? This one's simple: you make a statement that assumes something about the next poster. The next person to post confirms or denies it, with as much or little elaboration as she wishes, and then makes a statement about the next poster. And so on smile.gif

The person below me is a spectacular cook!

I am, actually, a spectacular cook!  I especially love to cook Thai and Indian cuisine, but I've tried a little bit of everything.  My husband would say he likes my Greek food and my few attempts at Ethiopian, but I think buying lamb is a touch expensive!  Most of the blogs I read are food blogs, I regularly browse TasteSpotting, and I am a firm believer that I am a high gainer in pregnancies simply because I love to taste and try loads of foods on a regular basis.

 

So, hey, person below me:  I hear you love to entertain guests at your house.  Be it a formal holiday dinner or an impromptu friends-only soup night, I hear you're a fabulous host!

 

Edit: I am SO GLAD there are women like Serafina out there!  I am a horrible introvert in person and I HATE hosting parties, but I think it's lovely to attend them for short times (until my introversion really takes over and I need a break).  I am glad hostesses put up with innies like me!

I had to reply.  That's me!!!!  jumpers.gif

 

I am the epic party hostess,and even these days when it's not wild singles partying in my house parties until dawn, it's weekly or twice-a-week gatherings in our backyard to barbeque.  I LOVE having people over and seeing them having fun!

 

The person below me is the one everyone points to as the woman who 'does it all' and no one can figure out how.  You juggle kids, career, marriage, and your house even looks decent.  Everyone asks you HOW DO YOU DO IT???  and women like me (messy Bessies and scattered unemployed types) are quite honestly dying to know.

Sort of, except without the career. :) I manage to achieve a lot at home, and am focused, but also have reached a balance where I don't have to over achieve or overdo it. I slow down when I need to. There's a woman I know who really must be a genius, works full time, homeschools 3 kids, has a newborn, and reads and blogs. I just have no desire to do that much nor do I feel inferior, but I'm happy for what I do get done around the house with regard to projects I come up with (planting raised beds, sewing curtains, painting a room, rendering lard and doing a lot of other from scratch stuff) in the midst of raising little kids and being pregnant. I think I've, for a long time, been able to execute things quickly, which helps.

 

The person below me is the one who has come to terms with her figure and is satisfied in how she looks.

Ugh, not quite. I'm fine with most of it, and more accepting of myself than I was when I was younger, but come on, thighs!

The person below me is obsessed with Downton Abbey!

Me!!! Oh the season finale was murder. I won't be a spoiler but it broke my heart! I just got a friend into it so we watched an episode last weekend. Love love love!!!

The show started me on an epic British journey on Netflix because 3 seasons I'd just nothing and I needed MOAR!

If you are obsessed like me with Brit period mini-series check out The Forsyte Saga (so epic!), Sisters and Wives, The Grand or any of the Jane Austin/Bronte adaptations from BBC.

If only DH liked Sybil or Cora...

The person below me makes clothing for their kiddos or is super crafty!

Ooh, me! I'm a one woman baby clothing knitting sweatshop right now! I've really gotten into it after finishing those diaper covers. Working on a fuzzy hoody and then moving on to the yoda baby bottle cover. Still haven't gotten the solar system mobile pattern even though I ordered it over a week ago.

 

the person below me is having interesting/unusual food cravings.

I've got one really intense craving: strawberry rhubarb lemonade! One restaurant I know of makes it exactly how I want it, and I keep dreaming of it! I should really learn a recipe smile.gif

The person below me has a bunch of cute baby things already and can hardly resist shopping for more!

This is totally me! I have so much stuff leftover from DD's babyhood, am getting tons of baby boy clothes from friends, yet I am constantly tempted to get more. The baby aisle at Target is my nemesis. smile.gif

The person below me has an unusual hobby.
post #10 of 13

That would be me. If Western Martial Arts: aka "swordfighting" counts as a weird hobby! I do rapier (think Thee Musketeers) and longsword (think Game of Thrones) and one handed shield and buckler. That's where I met my husband.

Though I am not doing it much lately due to being unwieldy and awkward. I also do archery every week.


The person below me has always wanted to be a mother.

When i was ten I had a baby nursery planned out from the jc penny catalog. I used looking at baby stuff as my procrastination tool of choice while in college/grad school. I read up oon baby wearing, cloth diapers, etc.way before being pregnant. I also sewed a stash of cloth diapers a year before even trying to get pregnant.

The person below me is trying to figure out where all the baby stuff will go and stays awake trying to organize in her head.

I used the Penney's catalog to decide I want to play the cello (they always had a whole couple of pages dedicated to student instruments!)  I am 27 and still haven't played!  I did score an amazing bathing suit deal one time from them (this was like, 15 years ago)!
