WWTKW…It’s back!!!

It brought me great delight last week to realize that Scriptor & Kenzie had brought back the We Want to Know Wednesday Q&A link-up. 

WWTKbutton-1-1_zps2077872a

I’ve missed it!  I already had my post ready to go last Wednesday, but I knew right away that I wouldn’t miss it this week!

Here are this week’s questions:

1.) A.) Did you watch the Superbowl? B.) Do you tend to like sports or do you watch them only if it is a big event or something a friend or spouse is into?

2.) What is one thing you really like but cannot understand how or why other people do not?

3.) Describe/Explain one thing that annoys you on a daily basis.

4.) What is one food you’ve been really into lately? (If nothing lately, you can explain something you craved at one point.)

5.) Name one thing you are saving or want to save money for.

My answers:

1.) A.) Did you watch the Superbowl? B.) Do you tend to like sports or do you watch them only if it is a big event or something a friend or spouse is into?

A) Yes, I actually did.  I had no idea as of Sunday morning who was even playing in the Superbowl (I like football, I really do… but I really wasn’t following it this year, apparently) – but that didn’t stop me from planning our annual family Superbowl Snackfest!  It’s really all about the snacks and the half-time show, right?!

B) I love watching sports, especially hockey and fastball/baseball.  I do enjoy football, but I don’t watch it as faithfully, and primarily just tune in for the Superbowl or Grey Cup (CFL).  The only sport I really don’t like to watch is basketball.  And I’m not a big fan of golf either, but if my brother is around and gets his paws on the remote… we watch golf.  *sigh*

2.) What is one thing you really like but cannot understand how or why other people do not?

Hockey.  Fortunately, many of my family & friends DO love hockey (and not surprisingly so, I guess, since we are Canadian) – but I do know people who can’t stand hockey, or are bored by it.  And I’m all like, HUH?!?!?!  I don’t get it.  I just don’t get it.

There is no greater high than winning a big game.  No greater pride than seeing your team succeed.  No greater thrill than watching a fast-paced, well-executed, exciting match.  It’s a passion.

Still gives me goosebumps…

3.) Describe/Explain one thing that annoys you on a daily basis.

My alarm clock.  I HATE getting up to an alarm.  Mine isn’t even set on an alarm, it’s set to the radio, and it starts off softly and gently, then grows increasingly louder, so it’s not even all up in my face going BLEH BLEH BLEH!!!!.  Even so.  Most days, I want to kill it.  Like, seriously, murder it.  In a perfect world, I would never have to waken to an alarm.  I would wake up whenever I want (and I still think that would be relatively early), and have moments to linger in bed and let myself fully waken, without the help of the snooze button.  It’s equally evil.

4.) What is one food you’ve been really into lately? (If nothing lately, you can explain something you craved at one point.)

I can’t really think of anything, honestly.  Oh, wait.  I DO have an answer.  Clementines.  Since Christmas, I’ve probably eaten my weight in clemmies.  They’re at their best around Christmastime, so every time I go to the store I grab another crate of them.  Before long, they’ll be out of season, so I’m eating as many of them as I can now!

5.) Name one thing you are saving or want to save money for.

This one is easy.  A new entertainment system – TV, DVD player, PVR, even a nice new unit to set it all up in.  I’m well over-due.

I’ve put with my current old asshole of a TV and all of his faulty friends for long enough.  So this is my current save-my-pennies project. 

Oh, wait.  We don’t even have pennies anymore.  Dammit.

Alright!  So that’s it for this week’s WWTKW!  Be sure if you decide to play along, go visit Scriptor & Kenzie and link-up!!

Ha ha yeah, hockey is the one sport I don't really like. Well, aside from golf. LOL. And we've been eating a lot of clementines around here too. Addictive!

I like the fights in hockey, do I get credit for that?

And no pennies? I did not know this--I need to do a post on all of the Canadaian things that Jill is teaching me. If you don't have pennies, what do you pinch?

Don't have pennies anymore, say what? And I really want to go to a live hockey game. i don't get into any sport watching on TV but LOVE being in the action!

My favorite part of the Superbowl is the halftime show and all the snacks!
The only time I have ever watched a hockey game was when I was in the hospital after giving birth to my son.. It was the only thing on, and it was pretty brutal haha!
Alarm clocks suck.
Thank you so much for linking up with us!!

I am so with you on hockey. I think Canadians and Michiganders are the only people who truly understand the sport or are at least as crazy about as we are! I'm a total "wing nut," GO REDWINGS! But we love the Maple Leafs! :D

I hear ya on the hockey! This time last year I was all pssh hockey but around this same time I got the brilliant idea of taking my grandpa to a hockey for his birthday and that got me hooked on hockey. I mostly just watch figure skating though.

Oh yay wwtk is back! I will defitely join in next week. I really like hockey, especially live. When I was a kid I was obsessed with the mighty ducks and really wanted to be one. Too bad the closest ice rink was 3 hours away!
