Manic Monday

It's time once again for Manic Monday:

Who is the black sheep in your family/group? Um....that would be me. I'm the one who married the wrong guy. Twice. The only one divorced. Twice. The one who had too many kids (by my family's standards). The one who went into the un-glorious profession of teaching snotty little kids. The one who is always struggling financially. Understand, I don't judge myself that way, but my family does. They love me, but most of the time they are shaking their heads in confusion at my life choices.

If you were a character from a book, what character would you be? "Jo" from Little Women. I always wanted to be part of the March family.

What's your favorite accent? Southern. (smile)

It wasn't bad for a Monday, but my sweetie had a very rough day. Please send him some internet mental "good vibes" and positive thoughts, and maybe a couple of prayers for a better week.

Hope you all had a good day,

I have a very large extended family and I am way off the Black Sheep list.

Character? Capn Kirk, of course.

Accent? Southern, of course. (wink, wink.)

Me? A rough day? I plead the 5th!

BTW. J a Black Sheep? Never!
She's never been baaaaaaad around me!

Hmmm... Well, since my whole family is made up of black sheep...


British (for the anglophile in me)

Sorry Trukindude is having a rough day. Tomorrow will be better - it's one day closer to you!

Maybe you're not the black sheep! Ever think of that?You sound pretty normal in this day and age.They sound too judgemental to me.That's old. Are you happy? Sounds it! That's what's important! Have a Great Day!

Well of four kids in my family only one is not a black sheep, guess what I'm not the one.

My character
Augustus McCrae from Lonesome Dove, problem is he dies at the end but my God Woodrow what a party!

Southern of course but I do love to hear an English bird chat me up as well.

Ha! I love why you are the black sheep! You go, Girl!

I played too :)

I'm the only one of 3 siblings who is divorced. Three times. Definitely black sheep material.

Character from a book? Hmmm. Do comic books count? I want to be Spiderman.

Accents? French is sexy and British is cool. It's a toss-up.

Your sweetie had a bad day. Guess I'll have to jump over to his blog and pick on him a little. ;-)
