Sixth Day Poll

I've lost the war, totally sick.

Are coasters used regularly in your home?

And, to answer you question, no.

I'm still fighting! Good luck--I hope you recover soon.

And, yes, we use coasters. There are coasters all over this damn house. My favorites feature horrible scenes from Twin Peaks.

Liz said...

Yep. Coasters in a all forms, from actual coasters to folded paper towels and magazines.

Feel better!

:( Hope you feel better soon. Is it like, Murphy's law or something, that if you get sick, it's always during the holiday season?

We aren't really a coaster kind of family. But that's probably more becaue all of our living room table-type furniture is glass-topped. Easily wiped.

Except for our newly padded coffee table/ottoman, which we can't put any sort of drink on because a certain someone in this house likes to pull things off of it.

No, and so sorry to hear you lost the battle. Feel better soon....

Steph said...

Yep, use coasters (on a couple tables). Sorry that you lost the battle - hope it's quick and you feel better soon!!

Sometimes, but usually we just use the glass coffee table, or don't drink in the living room.

Hope you feel bettter SOON.

Py Korry said...

Sorry you're sick Gina! Put a coaster on the table for all that water you're drinking. :-)

Beenzzz said...

Sorry to hear that you are sick. Get well soon! We use coasters once in a while. I keep forgetting to use them.

Candy said...

It sucks so bad to be sick at this time of year. So sorry!

Coasters - I only use them when we're playing cards on the dining room table. Because that's about the only piece of furniture I own with a finish that is worth preserving. If you overlook the spot where the babysitter poured nail polish remover all over it.

I admit it; I coast sometimes.

Seriously? Sometimes.

Awesome Mom said...

Hope you feel better soon!

Coasters, what are those? Actually we have one coaster for the computer desk and that is it.

Autumn's Mom said...

Aww feel better soon hon. We use coasters off and on. Right now we are on...with cute snowman ones.

Atasha said...

Oh, get better soon woman! Some time you chose to get sick eh? j/k Some nasty flu is definitely spreading itself all over the place.

Yes we are coaster people, for the most part.

MrsGrumpy said...

Feel better, says the girl who owns coasters that sit right on the end table, but nobody ever manages to use. They were a Christmas gift from my son that he picked out on his annual "Shopping Trip with Daddy" day two years ago.

Bammy said...

We have coasters.. the cats use them all the time for tug of war with each other.. and to hide under the couch.. but us?? ehh.. not so much
Feel better sunshine!!

shell said...

ugh. i'm sorry you're sick. i hope you feel better soon!

we use coasters all the time because most of our furniture is wood. though i have left some lovely marks because i have not used a coaster and have gotten in lot's of trouble... ;)

Mrs. G. said...

Nope. We have 'em but the glass is usually set down near them. We're Barbarians over here.

Amber said...

They were regularly used...as FRISBEES by Baby Bode. I recently threw them away....

Scout said...

Yes, in the living room where we have decent wooden tables besides chairs and sofa. They weren't used on a nightstand, unfortunately, and it is now ruined.

I'm sorry to hear you are sick. So much for willing wellness.

gmcountrymama said...

So sorry you are still ill.
No we don't use coasters, we purposefully have a very old and worn coffee table in the living room which can be abused by all. I plan on getting a new fancy one in about 14 years.

Margaret said...

Yes. Because Mark FREAKS if you don't. Especially on the coffee table. I freak about it pretty much everywhere else.

Feel better lady....

dr sardonicus said...

We have many coasters. I use them because a divorce would be costly after 21 years of marriage.

Get well soon!

Patois said...

Oh, yes, coasters are required if we're drinking something up in the living room. Anywhere else? Furniture beware.

Maddy said...

We have the plague too.

Coasters? I'm sure we have some skulling around the place somewhere. I think it's more that we don't have any decent furniture to protect!
Cheers


This is my calling card or link"Whittereronautism"until blogger comments get themselves sorted out.

Laurie said...

Good grief no...with six cats, they'd all be under the fridge anyway. Hope you feel better soon. hugs, Laurie

Granny said...

Depends on what you call a coaster.

Does a paper towel count? I don't worry about the kitchen table which I wipe down after each meal (although I make sure nothing sticky gets set there) but I hate to clean up a coffee cup ring or crumbs in the living room every time I turn around.

Paul said...

Well, this happens to be the first time I stop by here - but I do like non sequitors!

Uh, no...

And do you prefer writing with a blue or black ink?

Somebody should start "The Non-Sequitors Meme..." Hopefully I spelled that right anyway.

Nance said...

Oh, hell. It sucks being sick.

And coasters? You'd better believe it. Under penalty of death.
