it's monday me

I hope this finds you all doing well. The Meet Me On Monday meme that is sponsored by Java is up and since I'm home for a little bit this morning, I'll get it done and posted and not have to worry about rushing through it tonight!'s fun to do the meme, but, it's even more fun when you tell us your gives us a chance to get to know each other.

Here are the questions for this week:
1. What is your favorite yogurt flavor?

Very berry, baby...the more berries, the better.

2. Ankle or knee socks? and on the same theme, white socks or coloured??
Actually......I am neither.
I am more of a slouch socks kind of girl.
White, please.
and no, sadly, those are not my legs.

3. How is the weather right now?
After almost 4 straight days of heavy, torrential rain, we have cool, slightly humid cloudy skies.
We are in the 'rainy season' here in Nagasaki (which will last until the first of July, or so) so this..along with the heavy rains, will be the standard for a couple more weeks.

4. Are you a fast typer?
I didn't really know anymore, so....I took a test.
72 words

5. Red or White Wine?
I have had some bad experiences with red so I prefer a white.
And if I could, I would drink this white wine every chance I get.
The Cocetti family are close personal friends of mine in Denver, Colorado.  Their daughter is my 'soul sistah' and I have drank many a bottle glass at their house.
If you go to their site, tell them Debbie sent you. (^-^)
I can pretty much guarantee that all their wines are wonderful....even the reds.
Have a great week. 
I hope where you are the skies are sunny and the breezes are cool.

I just did the same typing test. I got 45 words but with 100% accuracy so I guess that's something.

Here's the dealio with yogurt: if I buy some that is already mixed with fruit flavoring of some sort, my current favorite is Chobani lemon nonfat greek yogurt. It tastes like a dessert. But my real favorite is plain nonfat Fage greek yogurt on which I smother with fresh blueberries & sliced fresh strawberries.

I know if you're serious about wine you are supposed to be all about the reds, but they give me headaches sometimes. I really do prefer a good chardonnay.

Here's to you keeping your spirits up during the rainy season. Cheers!

BTW - what's your favorite season in Japan?

~~sigh~~ i wish we had such fancy schmancy yougurts here in nagasaki, but, sadly, do not. if i lived in a bigger city, maybe.

today? we have sunshine, which my students tell me will be shining also tomorrow...after that? who knows. probably more rain (and the "cleaning of the mold growing all over the house" game begins! whoohoo!)

favorite season? SPRING!!! followed closely by fall. summer is by far my least and oh so very humid. yuck. thinking cool thoughts already in preparation!!!

Favorite yogurt? Well, hello. I started a blog in honor of it!

And those legs? Of course they aren't yours. They belong to Richard Simmons - duh!
