    Birthday Meme

    My birthday was back in May, but I saw this meme on a friend’s livejournal tonight and figured I’d do it now instead of waiting until next May and forgetting all about it. Go to Wikipedia and type in your birthday (month and day), then write down 3 events, 3 births, 3 deaths and 3 holidays. Events 1218 – The Fifth Crusade leaves Acre for Egypt. 1607 – 100 English settlers disembark in Jamestown, the first English colony in America. 1830 – Mary Had a Little Lamb by Sarah Josepha Hale is published. Births 1879 – H. B. Reese, American candymaker, created Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups (d. 1956) 1970 –…

    1. What’s the best part about where you live? I like that it’s in a central location for various places. I’m about 75 miles east of San Francisco, 65 miles South of Sacramento, 6 hours from DisneyLand, 9 hours from Las Vegas, and about 3 hours from both Yosemite National Park and Lake Tahoe. Not that I’m always going to any of these places, but I’m kinda in the middle of it all. 2. What can we do about so-called Christians who really aren’t? At least, they don’t look like they’ve ever read the Gospels. At least, not the Gospels you and I seem to have read. No comment other…

    Meme Monday

    from thatsmyanswer.com Have you turned your heat on yet in your home? Sure haven’t. It’s 94 degrees outside right now and the forecast calls for mid to high 90’s all week. I may not even turn the heat on at all this winter. I didn’t last year and I just used a lot of blankets, especially my electric blanket, when needed. My heater doesn’t heat up my whole apartment anyway so I don’t see the point in turning it on and wasting the money.

My apartment could be used as a store for Bath & Body Works. lol In the tub itself there’s Moonlight Path (both a cream body wash and a scrub), Forever Sunshine body wash, Birthday Cake body wash, plus a few things from Avon, Caress, and some other stuff I can’t remember. I like variety. lol

    Friday 5

    from friday5.org When you’re having trouble staying awake, what are some things you do to make sure you don’t drift off to sleep? Nothing. Since I don’t have a job if I get super sleepy during the day i’ve been letting myself take a nap. I generally set the alarm for just a half hour, but i’ve napped as long as 2 hours on some days. What’s most likely to cause you a prolonged period of not enough sleep? Having to be up at an earlier time than normal. I’ll be so worried that I won’t wake up that I end up tossing and turning all night. When you’re going…
