Five Question Friday: Dreaming of Samuel L. Jackson with my favorite blankie

I decided to give "Five Question Friday" a try.  Enjoy!

1. Did you have a favorite blanket or toy as a kid? If so, do you still have it?

My grandmother crocheted a green and yellow blanket for me.  I dragged it with me everywhere. I still have it.  It's upstairs in my daughter's closet.  My mother crocheted blankets for my kids.  I also had a "blue bear" as a lovey.  It was a two sided pillow stuffed animal with a printed blue bear on it.  I loved blue bear.  My mother repaired the worn holes in blue bear many times until he was more repairs than bear.  When I eventually retired blue bear, my mother removed all the stuffing and kept blue bear.  He still lives at my mother's house in a drawer somewhere.  My kids each have a lovey.  My daughter has a dirty yellow giraffe named "Giraffie" that was given as a baby gift at our baby shower.  My son has a "large" Ty dog that he calls "shakey doggie" (because of the beans inside). 

2. Do you dream in color?
Of course.  Doesn't everyone? I can't imagine not dreaming in color.  I suppose maybe if I was blind I would not dream in color...
3. How tall are you? Do you wish you were shorter or taller?
I'm 5' 4".  I've always thought it was an odd height -- kind of short, but not really.  Average, on the short side.  I really don't mind my height at all.  Except for the fact that I sucked at all sports.  Height would have helped in volleyball and rowing.
4. If you could have anyone's (celeb or other) voice as the guide on your GPS, who would it be?
Either Samuel L. Jackson or James Earl Jones.  Cuz that would just be badass. 


5. Do you return your shopping cart to the corral or leave it wherever in the parking lot?
I'll admit to going with the path of least resistance here.  If the corral is within 3-4 parking spaces of my own, I'll put it back in the corral. If the corral is further away than, well, I assume that strapping young man with the cool-remote-controlled-robot-cart-thingy will get it.

I hear ya on the height thing. Maybe that's why I never got into sports?
