A Monday Minute Featuring "Where's the Beef?"

Monday Minute



Those Monday Minute kids were having so much fun that I decided to play this time. (Hopscotch can wait.) Here are my answers, along with a link to the "Where's the Beef?" commercial. Enjoy.

What was your "oh no, I'm turning into my Mom/Dad" moment?
This is ultra embarrassing. It was a big day. My make-up and hair were just right, and I was all dressed. I looked in the mirror, though, and was horrified. I was wearing a brightly colored Hawaiian print shirt, deep green polyester pants, and dark brown Patten leather shoes. I shouted, “Oh no, I’m turning into my Dad!” Worse yet, it was my wedding day. Dad, if you are reading this, I’m just kidding! Dad, if you aren’t reading this, I’m still just kidding.


What current commercial do you find the most annoying/funny?
I don’t watch Tv anymore, so I have to go back in time to the Wendy’s “Where’s the beef?” commercial. It reminds me of my dating life in a very annoying way. Please watch. I promise you, it's worth it!

If you could only eat one color food for the rest of your life what would it be?
I’d go with black, the presence of all colors. I figure this way, I’ll never get bored looking at my food (somehow).

What is your current Facebook/Myspace/Twitter status?
I’m proud to say I have no status. I haven't had a status in so long that I forget if I ever had one. If I did have a status, I forget what it was. I also don’t have a FB/Myspace/Twitter status.

F, Marry, Kill from this list below. Women pick from the men, men pick from the women.
· Snookie (from Jersey Shore), Ellen DeGeneres, Betty White
· Regis Philbin, Justin Bieber, Perez Hilton


Since I live in the San Francisco Bay Area (Can I say "Liberal?" I most certainly can, and with beaming pride too!), but moreso because the male choices repulse me more than the female options (the mere thought of falling asleep in the same time zone as any of those dudes makes me nauseaus), I’m ignoring the rules and selecting from the females. Here we go:

~Snookie – Kill.
~Ellen DeGeneres – F*k. The thought of a threesome with Portia is a bit intriguing. Wouldn’t you say? Let's keep it real now.
~Betty White – Marry. Robyn Alana Engel White sounds catchy. Plus, who wouldn’t want Betty White as their spouse, unless you’re waiting on inheritance? She's one sturdy 88 year old gal.

  5. Yay! You played along! I'd like to see you in a Hawaiian shirt, actually....c'mon you KNOW you could pull that one off. ;)

    I so remember the "where's the beef" commercials with that annoying little Clara Peller (God rest her soul...and her big mouth).

  8. I couldn't help but notice the color of food you'd eat happens to be that of dark chocolate. I see through your subterfuge.

  9. Nice outfit!! ;)
    Those male choices struggle...I probably would have gone with the females too.

  10. Cheeseboy, are you my cousin?? xo

    GossipMama, thanks for visiting and commenting. :->

    TIS, oh no, dear, you don't. You really don't. Hugs! xo

    SirT, some people (actually, just me) are slower on the uptake. (o:

    Mar, maybe I could pull of the shirt, but not the polyester pants and Patten leather shoes. What a combo. xo

    Ian, I agree. Betty's the ideal spouse. She cooked me a lovely breakfast this morning too! [-:

    Rose, thank you. It's always good to see you. xo

    TS, drats. There's always some smarty pants in the bunch. Let's just keep this color-subterfuge (mm, makes me think of subterfudge) a secret, alright?!:-}

    BabySis, thanks for agreeing. The female options are much better. Sorry Regis. xo

    Have a good Monday,
    xoRobyn

  14. Are you serious NO tv? That is just craziness.

    I have so many shows that I dvr that I never have enough time to watch them.

    My fav commercial is the M&M one.
    Too freakin funny. You so have to watch it.

  15. Snookie - Kill - bahahahahahaha! Beautiful. I don't even watch that show and she manages to annoy the crap out of me.

  16. Snooie reminds me of an umpa loompa. Freaky bitch

  17. Someone of such a high status doesn't need to report her status. :)FYI...Cat issued an apology to everyone he offended. Had a little chat with him.

  18. love your answers. I would hate to be Betty White's grandkids. "Mom when is gramma gonna die? I need a new bike."

  19. Sarah, I'm sorry that YOU NOW KNOW who Perez Hilton is. Yuck! :-)

    FabFinds, thanks so much! I'm thrilled to be a new follower of yours too! xo

    BB, thank you. Sounds like you can relate. You must have found yourself dressed that way for your wedding too, huh? Yeah, not a proud moment. [o:

    SoccerMom, I know. It IS crazy. But I'm not a mommy, so I don't need a Tv. I do, however, need to catch the m&m commercial (on the Tv at my gym). Thanks for letting me know. It's great to see you here too! xo

    Marnie, I love it and am laughing loudly. Me too. i.e., No Tv. HATE THE SNOOKER!! ;O>

    MMH, you said it!! You always do, and I love ya for it! xo

    Copyboy, exactly. Nor do I need to report on my report on my lack of status. (Re the cat man-woman, I don't buy it. He-she blows hot and cold. But thanx for relaying the msg) {o;

    PTM, so very true. Those poor, poor kids. She'll outlive all of them! xo

    Chocolate kisses and beefy burgers to all,
    xoRobyn

  20. I'm totally with you on the ladies. Snookie needs a dirt nap ASAP so she doesn't have the opportunity to breed. Ellen would keep me laughing during the act and Betty is probably a tiger between the sheets. Plus she is a denture wearer! Not that it makes a difference.

  21. Haaa Haaaaaaaaa---AWESOME-- I'm so sorry for being so late and bad about visiting!

    Much Love,

    John
