an interview and things i have learned

I am being interviewed by my good blogger buddy Kish...These are her questions for me

1. What is your dream job? Probably a Labor and Delivery nurse, or a circus clown

2. What is your all time favorite movie?Well I have two...First one is Willy Wonka and the Chocalote Factory...The second is Rain Man

3. If Heaven exists, what do you want to hear God say to you when you arrive at the Pearly Gates? I have waited all my life to finally meet you, may I have your autograph

4. What is your favorite memory of someone who has passed away? (name the person and the memory). This is hard for me because I have not had any close famliy or friends pass on...I had a great grandparents who lived in and around the Detroit area and when we would go there for a weekend grandpa would walk me to his garden and show his veggies . And grandma would walk us down to her neighbors to take us swimming.

5. What is your favorite curse word?ok, what is not my favorite curse word. I must admit I do have a sailors mouth at times...My fav word to pop out at any given moment is the f-bomb or any other 4 letter word I know:)...but I am trying to clean it upo..southern belles such as myself dont have potty mouths ya know??..LOL

So if any of you want to be interviewed let me know and I will get you some questions of your own.


Ok, I have a dirty little secret..I have been watching Martha..I dont mean every now and then, I mean I have my butt in front of my tv at 11 am when I know the show is starting.

I have tried avoiding it..It is like a train wreck, but I can not stop myself.

So I thought I would share some things that I have learned from Martha over the past few weeks can make homeade ravioli useing won ton wrappers...who knew??

2.dont put oil in when you are boiling noodles..the oil makes it so the sauce does not adhere well to the noodles can make carmalized chicken just by sauting the chicken and saving the juice.

4.instead of buying skinless chicken breast, you should buy the kind with the skin. You can make a little pocket in the skin and shove all your seasoning in there ..bake it..then remove the skin if you wish..nice moist tasty chicken:)

5. Use a babmoo scerwer to hold a 2 layer cake togther

6.intsead of having your regaulr ole dish soap bottle on your counter, get a nice decortive bottle and pour your liquid in there and then just buy a pump to put on top..

I will stop there....I just like sharing what I know....Dont shoot the messenger ok!!

So my dirty secert is out....Do you feel better now that I just humilated myself in front of all of you??...You happy!!!!!!

OK I must go...I must go do my walk of shame.



d said...

Oh Christina! Where do I begin?

I think you might be the only person I have ever *met* who can say they would want to be a circus clown. LMAO!

God asking for your autograph? Priceless! (I'm gonna laugh at that one everytime I think about it for the next few days)

Martha? Oh geez, I think we found the problem. You can blame all that "nesting" on Martha.

You're a riot!

Gangadhar said...

Lovely answers,Christina!!
And the answer for 3rd question is too good...

Melis said...

I just want to know if you see yourself living your life long dream and being dressed as a circus clown when God asks you for your autograph? Maybe while you're extending him your freshly baked Martha impersonated goodies?? Ok.. not nice! But way too funny if you actually invision it! LMAO

Heather said...

I watch Martha too.. but only because I enjoy awkward pauses and stories that begin "when I was in jail...."

Lesser_Lumpkin said...

OK despite my religious bent even I chuckled at number 3. And now I'm probably going to have to answer for it in eternity so thanks a lot. ;-). Well done and good answers. So do I have to request here as well seeing how I already did earlier?

I love what you want to hear when you enter the pearly gates...classic :)

Bossy♥'s YOU said...

Beth, I am just trying to save our noodels one home at a time..LOL

Anna said...

lol- Christina you're fun!

I used to be addicted to Trading Spaces the way you're addicted to Martha. Hey, at least we get good tips!

btw, I didn't know you were in Mpls! I used to live in The Cities and still miss it!

firehotgran said...

momma of 2 said...

I love your answers... Circus clown.. yeah I could see that? lol...

Have a agreat weekend!

vani said...

hey, you could come over and dress up like a clown anytime- my kids would love it! or cry...not too sure yet! hehe...and thanks for the tips- i use oil to boil my noodles too. :)

Felecia said...

I think our occassional bantor has been a bad influence on you. I check in on Martha's website frequently... From the looks of it, I may very well be the only one encouraging your dark side. CHRISTINA...I AM YOUR MOTHER. hardy har har

If you have any leftover questions, feel free to shoot them my way. I'm pretty much an open book.

Lesser_Lumpkin said...

Ok Christina. Thanks for taking the time to humor me. I filled in the questions and posted them at

thanks again.

Mandy said...

I knew you would come around! I have been watching everyday!! LMAO

mom of 3 girls said...

I agree with granny you can blame it on erma that must be where you got it. You are doomed now!!! LOL
You will be just like your grandma!

At least you did get some good tips.

keesh said...

Lord have mercy, you must find something else to watch at that time frame. even the Wiggles. Martha annoys the crap out of me. Great answers! It is a neat way to get to know somone. thanks for partaking in my little interview :).

Tee said...

I have a love/hate relationship with Martha... She has so many interesting things to say but I hate how she acts all superior to everyone else. LOL.

keesh said...

Tee - yeah, maybe that is it. it is kinda love/hate. I guess I just don't understand how one woman makes so much doing the exact same thing my great grandmother's did, well for their time I mean :).

Melis said...

There's no doubt that you'll surpass 'ol Martha, you're well on your way now it seems! :) And sure! I'm up to be interviewed, sounds like fun!! :)

Bossy♥'s YOU said...

Cliff Morrow said...

midwest_hick said...

lol....Enjoy Martha while you can....sounds like her show is gonna tank.

Marel Lecone said...

Helpful tips, I'm sure. Who adds oil to boiling noodles anyway, though? :) This was another crack-up of a post! Too funny. Talk to you later. :)

pack of 2 said...

Did you learn how to fold a tee shirt from Martha too? I did & have since refolded every tee shirt we own...Shhh & don't tell d...she'll make fun of!

God will probabaly want to have a picture taken with you to prove that he/she actually met you!

I love both of the movies you listed too.

LMAO at the cuss words. Have you invented a few new ones too?


Bossy♥'s YOU said...

MWH, I know...I hear the ratings are not good,,i hope they pull it

marel, i dont know who adds oil or why,,,but now i know you shouldnt

Shelly, yes ..i too have folded all my wont tell
