Friend Makin’ Mondays: Are You A Bookworm?
1) How often do you read?  I like to read everyday, whether it’s blogs, magazines, or books.
2) What’s the last book you read and loved? Honestly, I was focused way too much on World of Warcraft for a really long time, but with all of this added free time, I’ve returned reading to my nightly routine.
3) What book(s) are you currently reading?  I started reading The Imperial Cruise by James Bradley awhile ago, but put it down. I’ve started it, so I’m going to finish it. Right now, though, I’m engrossed in A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin. I’m also getting ready to start The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien for the Geek Girls Book Club. You can learn a bit more about that over at my other blog, Kentucky Geek Girl.
4) Share a few of your favorite authors.  I have varied interests, but some of my favorite authors right now are J.K. Rowling, George R.R. Martin, Patricia Cornwell, Meg Cabot, Sara Gruen, Dan Brown, H.P. Lovecraft
5) What’s next on your list of must-reads?  As soon as I finish A Game of Thrones, I am going to keep working on the series. There are five books out right now in A Song of Ice and Fire. I also have have have to start Richelle Mead’s Georgina Kincaid series. The first book is Succubus Blues.

FMM: Today I….

Today I felt… happy that I’m wearing a shirt that I bought when I was a senior in high school.

Today I saw… my best friend and her boyfriend when I picked her up for work.

Today I ate… a 6″ ham and pepperjack sandwich and some BBQ chips from Subway.

Today I kissed… no one.

Today I bought… nothing aside from my lunch.

Today I heard… a second grader say that he had light sabers for arms.

Today I lost… Actually I didn’t lose anything today.

Today I decided… that I definitely have to get back to the gym hardcore this week.

Today I need… to finish up my laundry and move on to cleaning my apartment in preparation for my mother and grandmother visiting next week.

Today I wish… that we could actually sit out on the patio when we go get dinner tonight. I’m so sick of all of this rain!

FMM: The Grocery Store

1. Do you make a list when you go grocery shopping? Do you stick to it?  Because of my limited budget, I HAVE to make lists and stick to them. It is a rare occasion when I go to the store and splurge on something.

2. Do you buy more groceries when you’re hungry?  I’ve made the mistake of going to the grocery store hungry. It’s not a pretty sight. And yes, I have bought more groceries when I’ve gone to the store hungry.

3. Coupons. Use ’em?  I like the coupons that Kroger sends me in the mail for free items as well as clipping coupons from the newspaper. I do not usually buy a newspaper for coupons though.

4. Have you ever complained to the manager of your grocery store?  Nope.

5. Do you like to buy groceries at huge chain stores like Wal-Mart and Target? Or do you shop exclusively at food stores?  Like I said before, I have a very limited budget. I find myself buying more groceries at Walmart now, though Kroger is close enough to my apartment than I can walk there with ease. (Well, before, I couldn’t have walked there with ease, but I can now!) Walmart is generally cheaper, but I shop at Kroger if there are good sales or I absolutely do not want to drive to Walmart.

6. How much time do you spend reading labels in the grocery store?  I use my Weight Watchers iPhone app like crazy.

7. Do you push your own grocery cart to the car and return it? If my order is small, then I’ll carry a basket, otherwise I use one of the little basket carts at Kroger.

8. What is the one food item you always buy at the grocery store that you must have in the kitchen? I like having grapes and bananas in stock. Now that I have discovered them, I cannot get enough of Sandwich Thins.

9. Do you enjoy grocery shopping? I didn’t before, but I do now. I like trying new things.

10. How often do you shop for groceries? I tend to shop every few days. I’ve decided, though, to premake a lot of food for convenience and just go out for things like eggs, milk, etc.
