In keeping with my recent randomness, I found this meme over at "The Bluest Butterfly". I thought it was very interesting and decided to play along. So, here goes.

Week of June 9: Fill in the blanks.....
1. My best friend wife. She may be the most detail oriented person I know. On her very worst day, she is more organized that anyone else I know on their very best day. I have come to appreciate and rely on that part of her personality.
2. I love it bride and I have a day together to just piddle. We may start with breakfast at IHOP, Mimi's, or Cracker Barrel and just let the day go where it may. We might shop, take in a matinee movie, or wander through a few flea markets. It doesn't really matter as long as we can spend the day enjoying the company of one another.
3. My favorite movie is________________because_______________. Jeremiah Johnson because I love the characters that Robert Redford and Will Geer play. It has everything I like about motion pictures, and it is clean.
4. I can't stand it when________________________. I have to deal with a major personnel issue at the office. I used to be an architect, now there are days when I feel like I'm running an adult day care with seventy-five clients.
5. If I could have any job in the world it would be___________________. Singer/songwriter/musician. Of course I have absolutely no talent to do any of these. I love music and would give anything to be talented enough to actually create music that people would want to listen to and purchase.
6. Most weekends I _____________ _______. Blog a little, get what ever personal errands done that I can't do during the work week.
7. _____________ tastes so good! Almost any one of the cheese cakes from Cheesecake Factory!
8. Why does _______________________?every new cell phone come with more features than I need, and still not get a clear, stable signal.
9. I have lots of _________________ around the house. books and writing utensils. I'm an architect, we're suckers for spiffy new pens and pencils. Most of my books are informational, not novels. I'm not an avid reader so the books are there for reference.
10. Blogging satisfies my need for ________________. sharing common interests with others from around the country and around the world. When you think about it, the Internet is truly amazing.

You answered #1 the way my husband would. Just the part about me being his best friend. Not the organized part. He's my best friend too. Loved this meme. Have a great day. :)

Like Sandee said, you answered #1 the way Ornery would, even the part about being organized! Fun meme.

Happy Monday!

Some great answers!

Jeremiah Johnnson is one of my favorite movies also. Every time I gear up to go quail hunting my wife asks me what I'm doing (you'd think she would have figured it out by now since I never hunt any other kind of creature). My answer always makes her eyes roll: "Huntin' griz!"

I just love what you write about your wife.
It's really refreshing and lovely.

Thanks for the inspiration!

Pam and I enjoy days when we can just putter about too, especially these days with gas prices so high. If we can go a short distance and then get out and meander about, that's ideal.

I think I'll swipe this and put it in my queue.

Bond: Yes I thought it was fun to do. I almost added three questions and turned it into a Thursday Thirteen.

Sandee/Ornery's Wife: That answer was pretty much of a "No Brainer."

Eric: Thank you for stopping by. "Huntin' Griz", classic. Love it. I'm sure you get an eye roll for that. I will probably do the Movie Meme on Friday.

Travis: It is nice to know that other couples can enjoy a day together without any specific plans. I'll be looking forward to seeing your post.

I like the meme, and will likely use it on my blog. Number 4 resonated with me. It comes from spending too much time at the office.
