Monkey Minute

I am trying something new today. It’s normally called Monday Minute but today it’s called a Monkey Minute.

Monkey is a little girl who was recently diagnosed with neuroblastoma. Monkey and her family need prayers. Please take a minute to thank God for the good things in your life and to prayer for comfort and healing for Monkey and her family.

If you want to read more about Monkey, you can get to her Momma's blog, by clicking this button:


Also, Ian of The Daily Dose of Reality is hosting a raffle to support Monkey and her family. If you'd like to enter the raffle and see what you can enter to win, head over to his blog for the details.

So on to the Monkey Minute… 5 questions with my five answers. If you play, you can link up at Ian’s as well…

Here goes.

Have you ever peed in the shower/bath/pool?
In a bath, never! In a pool, not in a very long time. In the ocean, well, yeah. The fish do it. So can’t I!!

What is your biggest pet peeve?
Self-created drama. You know the kind. Drama for the sake of drama. Drama that could be avoided if you woke up, grew up and shut up! Yeah, that drama.

What's the story behind your blog title?
I tend to march to the beat of my own little internal drummer. At a previous job, someone asked what color the sky was in my world. My world became known as Laurieville. And I wanted to be a countess. It sounded so exotic. So, I became the self-proclaimed Countess of Laurieville. Population 1. Unless I am pregnant. Which I am not. (Oh, and the sky? Purple. With pink polka dots sometimes.)

What is your definition of success?
Being truly happy with where you are and what you have.

If you were famous, what would you want to be famous for?
For writing a fantastic novel that encourages people and makes them happy!

P.S. Cancer - YOU SUCK. Stop picking on itty bitty's... You are mean and I hate you. Yes, I said hate. Cuz I hate YOU!!
