The Last Olympic Games

This is the last Olympic based Blogger Game about Paul at The Captain’s Speech. This time, the questions are True Or False about Him. Once again, I encourage you to check out his blog at ‘Captain’s Speech’ and once again, my answers are in Bold:

1. I used to have two pet fish named “Fish E.” and “Binoculars”.
A) True
B) False

2. I got lost in an Olive Garden (the restaurant).
A) True
B) False

3. I found $5 in a book at the public library.
A) True
B) False

4. I was vacuuming the house at Age 3.
A) True
B) False

5. I fell in a puddle at recess in elementary school.
A) True
B) False

6. I don’t drink coffee.
A) True
B) False

7. I keep a lucky penny in my sock.
A) True
B) False

8. I prefer to use a pencil instead of a pen.
A) True
B) False

9. I like cauliflower with tomato sauce.
A) True
B) False

10. I normally eat dinner after 7PM.
A) True
B) False

And now, a few questions from Paul, but I might not answer them all…See what I did there?  They are:


Did you have any pets? Have you ever gotten lost? Have you ever found money? Are you a cleaner? When was the last time you fell? Do you drink coffee? Do have any superstitions? What do you like to write with? What cooked vegetables do you like? When do you eat dinner?

My blogs official name is CatsandCoffee and my blogs title is Midlife Cat Lady so, Yes, I have pets. 3 beautiful cats! I had 4 but lost Puma to Liver Failure last February. I had to throw that in because I still miss her! I have always been an animal person having had Dogs, Cats, Hamsters and Fish growing up! I answered the Coffee question also, this way. I can’t start my day without Coffee. I do go to Starbucks once in a while for my Vanilla Latte with two extra pumps Vanilla, but not to often.

Am I a Cleaner? I’ll take the 5th. Lol. Actually, I do clean but I could probably do better. My mother was like model home level clean and I prefer more the Lived-In Look.

I am very klutzy so I Fall a lot. I don’t remember the last time, though.

No, I am not Superstitious. I believe in God and really think Superstition comes from the other side.

I prefer Pens verses Pencils. Especially, Pens with Purple Ink!

When Do I Eat Dinner? – Well, the good thing about being an Adult and living alone is, I eat when I am hungry. Although, I try not to eat a full meal to late and to cut Caffeine off, early.. unless I am out somewhere super late since Caffeine keeps me awake.

Cooked Vegetables? – I love steamed Cauliflower, Frozen (defrosted and cooked obviously) Peas & Carrots, Corn On The Cob, steamed Artichokes…I could probably go on..but it just makes me hungry.

Anyway, I look forward to more Blogger Games in the future and am looking forward to seeing the final scores after this one.

A-Z Challenge-Y = Yankee Swap

Are you ready to learn how to play a cool, party game?

This game has many names and many ways to play. One name for it is Yankee Swap and that’s how I am referring to it since we are on the letter Y. This game is not only played at Christmas, but can be played at other occasions, too.

Here is how I/you/most people play:

Get a group together and have each person bring a wrapped gift. Set a budget or bring something from home.. this is where you can get rule creative. When the person arrives, put the gift on the table and give the person a number. Don’t number the gifts. Once everyone has arrived and has numbers, the game can start. The amount of gifts will equal the amount of people, unless you bring extra.. just in case. Person 1 picks their gift and opens it. Yay, it’s a clock!..No, it does not have to be a clock. It probably won’t be. Let’s not get overly literal, here… 2nd person gets called, they can take the clock…or whatever it is… or open a new gift. If they take the clock…or whatever it is…, Person 1 opens a new gift..and so on .until all gifts are off the table. Gifts can be swapped 3x and once you have had a gift in your hands, you can’t get it back.

Some people don’t like this game, but, I think it’s fun! We played it at my Wedding Shower, though and my relatives were holding on to everything so when my turn came, I turned to my new Aunt and said, “I love you Aunt Jod, but I really love your candle.” and took it; thereby causing her to Swap. My mother got annoyed saying I was terrible and should not have done that because I was the Bride; but, that’s how you play the game!

Usually, you get some funny and some serious gifts, which is what makes it even more fun. At my church Swap, someone even brought a Betta Fish with bowl and food.

So, now you have a new party game to try! I hope you play it, sometime and find it fun.

And tomorrow is Z. The last letter of the alphabet. Endings always make me sad.

But, don’t worry, I have come up with tomorrow’s word, and will do this again next year.

Question Fun

For the next 14 days, you can only eat the food and drink you had at your last meal? What are you surviving on?

*For me, it’s Homemade Quesadillas with extra hot sauce and Arrowhead Water.

Come on, let’s play!
