Dance the night away!

Saturday 9: Come Dancing

1. When was the last time that you went out dancing?
Apparently I was dancing last weekend.  I think I was overserved. 

2. Have you ever had an argument with a teacher?
Have you met me?  I argue with everybody.  A teacher was fair game - especially in High School.  One good one I remember is refusing to take my Algebra final.  The teacher wanted to know why.  I told him - "I have an F in this class, correct" and he said "Yes"... OK
me:  Do you think I'm going to get an A on the final?
him: No
me:  Even if I did, would it bring up my grade?
him: No
me:  Then why bother?  I'm going to sleep in that day.  
He just didn't get it.  

3. Do you have a tough time remembering people’s names?
Who are you people and why do you keep waking me up?!?  I don't forget faces - and when I can't remember their names, whooeeee that makes for some fun. 

4. Would you rather change your past or know your future?
I like standing out in my field, or pasture.. or past... Neither.  Although, knowing the Mega Millions numbers would be nice.  Can you hook me up?

5. What’s one thing you feel you must do in your life before it ends?
Live it 

6. How many credit cards do you have right now that have a zero balance?
Baaaaaaaahahahahahahahahaaa!!  Again - have you met me??  NONE.

7. What is the most expensive thing you purchased this year?
Oooh this is after Christmas, and before birthdays, and only March.  A saw.  That's right - I heart power tools.   

8 . If you're married, this probably doesn't apply to you, but: Are you mindful about getting tested for STDs/HIV at least semi-regularly? Why/why not? Married people: Were you mindful about this type of thing when you were single? Why/why not?
Yes and no...  I made sure that I either knew who I was sleeping with or that they used protection.  And I'm not married.  But I did get tested a couple of times - and I'm negative.  :) 

9. If you could ask the president of the United States one question, what would it be?
 Didn't you just want to slap the SHIT outta that guy???

Cee Lo Green said WHAT???

Saturday 9: Forget You - click here to play along! 

1. Have you ever felt that you needed to just forget an ex-lover?
I have forgotten some..  Some I can't forget and some just won't go away.  LOL But then there's the one that keeps coming back, too..  :)

2. Spring picnics and cookouts are here! What would you want to have on your plate as you head back to the table?
mmmmmmmmm ribbies.  I make some damn good ribbies.  Wanna see?  Pay no mind to the chicken - just look at the ribs.. mmmmmm now I'm hungry dammit.  Thanks Bud. 

3. It's St. Patrick's Day, March 17th! Do you celebrate? Drink Green Beer? Go out?
Are you kidding me?  My middle name is Irish.  I'm descended from some right off the boat peeps.  I PEE green on this day.  And tomorrow, as a result of the green beer?  I will most likely poop green also.  Sliante!

4. Did you remember to wear green today?

5. What phrase or saying do you over use?
Shut the front door!  Either that or "is it me?  Am *I* the crazy one?"  Which is usually followed by "naaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhh"  LOL

6. If you could (or could have) change(d) something about your relationship with your parents, what would it be?
That they actually had a relationship with their kids instead of just being parents.  They didn't encourage us to do things together or do things as a family - and as a result, after my mother died we all pretty much went our separate ways.  My brother is dying, and thought nothing of waiting a year to share his diagnosis.  My other brother was incommunicado for almost 5 years, and is just getting back in contact in the past 6 months.  My sister thinks nothing of being a major douche canoe.  I live in Michigan.  They live in MA.  We really do put the fun back into dysfunction.  There is nothing "functional" about my family.  Thanks Mom and Dad.  Oh, wait.  I'm over 30.  I guess I own it now. 

7. If the NCAA Men's or Women's Final Four basketball tournament was played in your hometown arena or within easy driving distance from where you live, would you try to attend one of the games?
Fuck NCAA Final Four.  They're messing with my TV schedule. 

8. No matter what's going on in your life, what always makes you smile?
Silly memes on a Saturday morning.  And my kid.  He's a stitch.

9. We've asked this before: What else is on your mind? Go ahead and rant.
Oh, I thought that was what #6 was about?  I could rant some more.  Want to hear me rant?  How about I talk about Jeanne?  She's fucking nuts.  Thinks that she's in the "best relationship of my life" with a guy that cheated on his wife with her, dumped HER to go out with someone else, and then because she was the only one that would have him - he cheated again with her and they now live together.  She thinks that she "won".  Seriously?  He's a pig.  I wouldn't touch him with the FFW's hoochie.  That's saying a lot.  Especially if you know the FFW.  She's called the FFW for a reason.  LOL   Anyway...

Thanks so much for joining us again at Saturday: 9. As always, feel free to come back, see who has participated and comment on their posts. In fact sometimes, if you want to read & comment on everyone's responses, you might want to check back again tomorrow. But it is not a rule. We haven’t any rules here. Join us on next Saturday for another version of Saturday: 9, "Just A Silly Meme on a Saturday!" Enjoy your weekend!

Random Monday Musings....

I really want to punch some more people in the face.  Like my friend's stepson's mother.  She has the audacity to make fun of his father for trying to track him down when he hadn't been heard from in over 48 hours.  Called him a "drama king" on facebook.  Seriously?  I couldn't help myself.  I said that at least he gaave a shit enough to worry about him.  She's a douche of the nth degree.

My sister.  She's my sister by birth, but really?  I don't know where she came from.  She's got some control issues, and refuses to share any information with me about a number of things that really, she should be sharing.  She's another douche, right now.

I think douche is the word of the day. 

I spent yesterday afternoon with my friend's 2 girls.  Why?  Because she's in the hospital with her 10 year old that they just found out has cancer.  Seriously???  What the hell kind of God is there that pulls THIS shit?  I mean really, it's bad enough that my brother has ALS and his kids have to watch him decline.  Now this?  Where is the silver lining in all this?  So I want to punch God in the face for thinking that this is OK.  Because it's not.

People that I've sent my resume to that can't even bother to respond with a "fuck off, we don't like you".  I'm qualified for your jobs, dammit.  In some cases, MORE than qualified.  Fine.  I didn't want to work for you anyway.  Douches. 

Yeah.  Take THAT Monday.  You're a douche too.

Saturday 9...

Saturday 9: Look Out Here Comes Tomorrow (RIP Davy Jones)

OK - well, it's Friday.  I'll be early.  I'm a rebel like that..

1. How much do you worry about your future?
Not much.  I figure that whatever will happen, will happen.  I'm kind of laid back that way.  I don't panic about not having enough money for retirement, or where I'm going to be 10 years from now. 

2. Do you believe that anyone could be perfect?
LOLOLOLOL  That's damn funny.  I bet even Brad Pitt has gas on occasion.  Nobody is perfect.

3. Regarding your future, what is the best thing you could hope for?
To live a good long life, get to see my kid grow up to an adult and have his own (for payback, of course :) ) and to do everything on my bucket list that I haven't made up yet.  :)

4. What's the greatest extent you've gone to help a friend in need?
LOL  Again - this one is funny.  Gave someone a place to live, a car to drive, work, help with her kids, you name it.  Don't ask what she did in return.  Just do a search for "FFW"  LOL

5. What did you do lately that was really brave
Sent a letter to someone that told him things about his father I'm sure he didn't know.  I knew it would piss the father off, but it was the right thing to do - it wasn't about the father.  It was about the child.  He'll (the father) never get that.

6. Tell us one thing you wish you hadn't let yourself do.
Gain that 20 lbs.  It's a bitch to get it off after 40.  But I'm doing it! 

7. Who is the wisest person you know?
Hmmmmmmmm...... Not sure about that.  I'm a wise-ASS.... there isn't one person that I go to for advice any more - it used to be my aunt Harriet.  But she's gone.  That wasn't very wise of her to go and leave us all in the lurch.  And while she was wise?  She interjected her feelings into everything.  She was fun. I miss her. 

8. What's the most tasteless joke you've ever heard?

How many [insert racial/ethnic type her] does it take to change a lightbulb... 

9. What does your answering machine / voice mail message say?

Answering machine?  Do people actually still have those?  It says "you've reached the Queen of the Universe.  If you wish to become my slave hit "1".... if you wish to live in the kingdom hit "2".... Duh...  It says you've reached me, leave a damn message...
