Questions about the 4th, Suntans and Hot Dogs and What I Wore

Linking up with Kendra for Questions and FLAP for Clothes. 

1. How did you celebrate the 4th of July? (Or, for you international types . . . Do anything fun this weekend?)

My brother, sister-in-law and sister-in-blood who is an actual religious sister are in town, so we had a cook-out at my parent's house with lots of yummy food and charred hamburgers.   Then we had an impromptu show with the kids telling stories and singing.  And the nun performed too...with my other sister (and supposedly me, but I don't sing).   We had the nun's famous ice cream cake (not to be confused with Kendra's kid's ice cream cake).  Then they came back to my house and the adults watched Bourne, while the kids watched a kid movie. and once it was dark enough, we did sparklers and pop-its.  Although to tell you the truth, I was starting to doze off during Bourne..but I woke up for the sparklers. 

Then once it was really dark, we climbed up on the roof, got eaten by mosquitoes and watched fireworks.  People get crazy about fireworks about here, so we don't even know whose we were watching, but in all 4 directions from us, *someone* was setting off fireworks. LATE into the night.  

2. Do you sunburn easily?

No, I will tan and get darker and darker and darker and darker until I look like I'm another ethnicity.

The summer after I graduated from college, I volunteered with Christian Appalachian Project in the mountains of Eastern Kentucky.  I spent the entire summer outdoors and didn't burn, but got super dark.

Then I went to graduate school at the University of Kentucky and at one of those meet and greets, I had the following conversation with someone. 

A graduate student no less.

Other graduate student: Where are you from?
Me:  Rhode Island
Other graduate student  Is that in the Caribbean?
Me: Uh's in New England, right by Massachusetts.
Other Graduate Student: just thought you looked like you might be from someplace exotic. 
Me: place exotic. 

3. Hot dogs. Yay or nay?

I like them okay, but they aren't my favorite or anything.  I would prefer a burger. If I do eat a hot dog, it is bun. I can't stand hot dog buns (or hamburger buns or cheap, white bread buns of any sort).  And, I only really like the healthy ones...without all the nitrates and junk. 

4. Have you ever personally set off fireworks?

No.  As a general rule, I don't do things that could be considered dangerous.  

5. Have you ever jumped off the high dive?

No. See above answer. Plus, I'm not a great swimmer, and I hate going underwater. 

6. Do you do anything weird in your sleep?

I've been told that I occasionally talk in my sleep, but just occasionally, so usually no. 

And, I haven't done a What I Wore Sunday in a long time..but what the heck.  I'll go for it now. 

Here's what I wore today. (Linking up with Fine Linen and Purple)
