Hoo Are You? #38

A fun little crafting blog, Night Owl Crafting, does a weekly link-up on Tuesdays where bloggers can post a little about themselves and read about each other, called Hoo Are You?
Here are this week's questions (and my answers):

1. What is your favorite magazine?
Probably Games Magazine's World of Puzzles. But I haven't been able to sit down and do one in years. It's easier to read a magazine while my husband drives, versus trying to fill in crosswords in a moving car! It's also harder to do pencil puzzles on the toilet; juggling magazine, pencil and click-eraser (I prefer click-erasers to the pink ones. And I like refillable click-pencils too, which have erasers about the size of a gnat.) And since these are my primary magazine opportunities, I mostly just get ones to read now. So my current favorite magazine would probably be Family Fun. I like Parents, Parenting Early Years, Parent and Child and Family Circle. But Disney's Family Fun consistently has more crafts and such that I want to try. Not that I ever do...

2. What color are your eyes?
Hazel. Technically, any multi-colored irises are hazel, but mine are the traditional brown/green hazel. But a very browny light-green.

3. Do you go to the dentist on a regular 6-month schedule, or do you put it off?
Both. I now go to the dentist every 6 months, after my molar cracked in half a few months after Z was born. But it had been years since I had gone before. I know I went to get my wisdom teeth pulled sometime in my early 20s. And I had several cavities filled, and fillings from my childhood re-filled some time after that. And then one check-up some time in between then and my broken tooth.
I now have three crowns. Or "Gold pirate teeth! Yarrr!" as I like to call them. On the plus side, when this last one broke a few months ago, Little Z got to see it, and I moaned and whined about how much it hurt to eat sweets, and told her that I hadn't brushed well enough as a child, so now my teeth were starting to break.
She stops fighting us and always agrees to get her teeth brushed when I remind her. So, if nothing else, totally worth it for that alone.

4. Do you use anything to make your house smell good (ex: candles, spray, etc...)?
Denial. I just ignore anything messy or smelly that I don't want to deal with.

5. Do you have any pets?
Har! Yes. Cats. Ludi, Ra, Anna and The Kitten. Z loves "Newdi" the best, as he's too old, fat and lazy to escape. "Wra" is second best, as he's also too old, fat and lazy, but he is harder to find. Anna stays downstairs, and runs away from everybody. Z has probably seen her, oh, five times her entire life. And she loves "The Kih-nehn," (also known as "Meowlmeowl" which is also her name for my sister's cat, Melville) but The Kitten is fast and skinny and wily. She only approaches sleeping toddlers. And steps on them.



  1. Ouch! Your molar cracked in half?

  2. Two of my molars have cracked now. And the dentist told me that the one below my first cracked one would crack and need a crown at any time, so I had it done at the same time as the first one. $700 bucks a pop! (I think the tooth-colored ones were only $400, but you almost always have to get them re-done at some point, while most gold ones stay good forever. Plus. You know. A mouth full of inheritance for your kids!)


Go ahead! Tell me how awesome I am. Or ask a question. Whatever.
