Manic Monday

Since I'm feeling a bit grouchy tonight, I decided to go short and sweet. I found this over at Fleur-de-Lisa's:

What do you order when you eat Chinese food? I love shrimp fried rice, with snow peas. Or chicken low mein. Or lately, I have been getting Bourbon chicken. And an egg roll.

How much have you controlled the course your life has taken? Wow, this is a tricky one. I controlled who I married, and how many kids I've had, so in large part I HAVE controlled the course of my life. But I was not in control when my ex-husband divorced me or left me to raise four kids by myself....but I think, in spite of marrying on the rebound, that I have regained control of my destiny since then.

Whose opinion do you value when deciding how to vote? My mom and dad. Friends whose opinions I respect in other matters. My brother-in-law.

Orange Beef. That's my preferred order at a Chinese restaurant. Over where I am, they serve fried calamari with sweet & sour sauce, which is dee-lish'.

My answers are:

1. Rolaids!
2. Every step of it that Sweet Tea lets me.
3. Mine!
4. And I like everyday of the week. Some are harder than others, but then that gives you obstacles to overcome.

Reading about all of this food today has made me hungry, and I don't even like Chinese all that much!

Glad you joined in on Manic Monday this week, J.

Got to love Chinese Food in the mid-west. I can't go to a chinese food place here in the tri-state area and get BOURBON CHICKEN. lol

Not a lot of BOURBON recipes in Chinese cooking =P

1. Sweet & Sour Pork, Beef Lo Main, at least 2 eggrolls & an appetizer of Crab Stuffed Wanton.

2. All I can say to that is...Against the wind just runnen against the wind.

3. My oldest sister Paula & my two oldest friends Travis & Ernie. Paula has always been there for me when I needed support & good advise.
I've known Travis & Ernie since the 5th grade. We each would give the proverbial shirt off our backs for each other.

The 5th grade...that was 37 years ago AW CRAP I'M GETTIN OLD !

I'd go for Broccoli Beef, Hot + sour soup, white rice.

Control is merely an illusion. The only thing I have some direction about is not running over some careless, ignorant motorist, and even that is dicey.

I'm very conservative by nature. I have my own mind; I vote my way! Not the populist way.

Yeah, it was a lousy day for me too.

R.E.H. - I've never had Orange Beef. I just recently ventured out to try Bourbon Chicken. I'm one of those people who orders the same thing every time just to be safe.

Coffeypot - I'm glad Sweet Tea keeps you on a short leash.

Lisa - Yeah...for some reason I'm craving Chinese food. You're welcome.

Birdman - I never thought about the bourbon thing, but I guess you're right! That's kind of funny! And yes, you made me laugh, not grouchier.

TruckinDog - I like the crab-stuffed wontons, too. 37 years since you were in the 5th grade? Man, you ARE old! (just teasing)

Sexy Anonymous "Man-who-drives-a-truck" - I like broccoli beef, too.

C.Flake - Thanks. Things are looking better.

Mr. Fab - Oh, I DO. Really I do.

Jeff - Do they sell Chinese food in Evansville or is it all barbeque? (har, har)

Brother Dave - If you ever come this way, I will buy you some bourbon AND some bourbon chicken.
