Not Me! Monday

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

This is a summary of how my week did NOT go:

When I went to the store this Sunday night, it most certainly was NOT the first time I’ve been in two weeks. No, I keep my pantry and fridge stocked with fresh, healthy items so I can provide the best food for my little family.

As a writer, I ALWAYS carry a pen with me at all times in case inspiration strikes – or I just need to tick off items on my grocery list. I would NEVER ever find out I was missing a pen for the latter need and proceed to use an old chapstick from when I was sick to strike through my list. I have a much better sense of sanitation than that!

While juggling herbs in the produce aisle, I did NOT catch a whiff of basil, and if I had, I most certainly would not have gotten caught sniffing it voraciously. NO, I avoid funny looks and have much better self-control, and even if I did have a penchant for fresh herbs, I would safely sniff in the confines of my own kitchen.

On the way home from my brother’s game, my family did NOT stop at Pops, the Route 66 old fashioned soda fountain, and I did NOT wake up at 4 a.m. because the excess sodium and sugar did NOT render me wide awake. When blogging, I did NOT discover a search engine virus and stay up the rest of the night chatting with Praseeja from McAfee, and I would NEVER be rude to her when she tried to sell me an $80 program to fix it. “Eighty bucks for an additional anti-virus program? What am I paying you guys the big bucks to do, anyway?” I did NOT proceed to commission all of my computer nerd friends to help and fix the problem by my lonesome for free!

As a devoted Star Wars fanatic, I most certainly would NEVER succumb to the true dark side and watch the new Star Trek movie. NO siree! Even if I did, I would absolutely under NO circumstances enjoy myself and find myself wishing to see it again!

And late last night, I got to bed on time, anticipating a busy Monday morning. After all, I would NEVER stay up way too late blogging to create the contest below. NOT me!

Well there you have it! That's what I HAVEN'T been up to lately. Be a good little lurker and DON'T comment or take part in my contest below!


  1. How was that movie? I've been thinking about going.

    By the way, I'm inviting all of MckMama's readers to a great Not Me Monday follow-up. It's called Toot Your Horn Tuesday. Stop by my blog tomorrow and play along. All you need is a post about all the GREAT things you've done over the last week. It'll be fun to leave our not-so-pretty moments on Monday and celebrate our fantasticness on Tuesday. Hope you can play!

  2. I have not sniffed cilantro in the produce dept. like a kid sniffing white-out in the back of the classroom!

  3. So I've been trying to think of something fun to do with my little cousin, and Pops is perfect. Thanks for the idea. Even though, you didn't go there. :)

  4. Next time you are NOT in the mood for some fresh herbs, DON'T call me and get some from my herb bed. I hardly have ANY to share! :)

    Rosemary, oregano, chives, cilantro (it's HUGE) and sage are all available. Seriously, let's get together!
