Another Goofy Interview

This time It's Only Me has posed some very interesting questions for me. I'll do my best to make up some good answers!

  1. What is the thing you miss most about being a DINK (dual-income, no kids) family?
  2. I'd have to say I miss not having to think as much. Thoughts bounce around in my head all day, like: Who's picking up/dropping off Junior today? Do we have appropriate makings for dinner? Can I make it home by 6:30pm-ish somehow (our somewhat official dinner-time, driven by Junior's hunger DINK times we would eat dinner around 9:00pm a LOT). Will Junior be in a good enough mood to go out for dinner?

    A little bit of our freedom is gone, but it's really not missed much. Junior has brought many more experiences to our lives that we never would have had as DINKs. Definitely a good trade-off!

  3. What is the most extreme sport that you'd be willing to try?

  4. Hmmm...I have to confess that there's not much that I wouldn't try, unless it was vetoed by Mr. Goofy (and often is). I have always wanted to sky-dive (vetoed!), hang-glide (vetoed!), bungee-jump (not vetoed, but where would I do that in KC?), and someday...someday... I will own a motorcycle...or at least a Vespa if Mr. Goofy freaks too much about a real bike. Somewhere along the way I got the gene that makes you love going fast. This is evidenced by the number of speeding tickets I've managed to rack up over the years. Ah, there's another one! Drive a race car! VROOM!!

  5. What has Goofy Jr. done to earn mom's tears (of joy, frustration or otherwise)?

  6. Wow...good question! I'm not a big cryer, but I do sometimes tear up when something touches me in a good way. There are times when I get home from a horrible day at work and Junior comes to greet me with a "MOMMY!MOMMY!MOMMY!" cheer, followed by a big hug and kiss, and that is just the best feeling EVER!

  7. Is your screen name at all Disney related? If not, what's the background?

  8. Not Disney-related, although I am a pretty big fan of the Disney Goofy character, so maybe it was subliminal. The name stems from my unavoidable knack for thinking, saying or doing goofy things. When I do such things, I usually mutter "Idiot Girl!" to myself. But that name was already taken. Goofy Girl was the second choice. Mystery solved!

  9. White, dark or milk chocolate? And what does this say about you?

  10. Definitely dark chocolate. Preferably Christopher Elbow's chocolates. What this says about me is that I'm officially a Chocolate Snob. I eat chocolate pretty much every day, so I've gotten picky. Hershey bars are not my cup of tea. The baseline starts at Ghirardelli and goes up from there, although Russell Stover's will do in a pinch. White chocolate is technically not really chocolate at all, so I don't have anything to do with that stuff.

I agree regarding white chocolate - what a sham perpetuated by the candy industry! Also, don't forget Dove's dark chocolate - they work in a pinch!

Mmmmm...Dove's dark chocolate bites. I had forgotten about those.
