You had me at Hello....

1: Who is your favorite Musical Artist from when you were a teenager? 
Then and now - Springsteen.  Hands down.  Ever seen him live?  You should.  It's a religious experience.  Don't believe me?  Hmmph..  Then you're just cray-cray.. 

2: Who is your favorite game show host?

Why not ask what my favorite game show is, huh?  I used to love the Match Game.  Brett Somers.  Richard Dawson.  Gene Rayburn as host.  That was a fun show to watch.  Damn funny.  Old Man Periwinkle.. LOL

3: Who is your Favorite Blog hosting service?
Huh?  Really?  Blogger.  It's free.  It works.  That's a dumb question..  For leaving that one in - you get this:
4: If you could meet anyone again from your childhood, who would it be?

Myself.  And I would slap the shit out of me, and then when I started to listen - I'd give myself lots of advice.  Otherwise?  My aunt Harriet.  I miss her. 
5: Where did you want to live when you were growing up?

 In a pretty house with a white picket fence and lots of kids running around and a really hot husband.  And I was going to be a teacher, a princess and a famous writer.  Yeah.  oh stuff it.  Stop laughing.  LOL

6: What is the most interesting piece of Trivia that you know?
That during every concert, Clarence Clemons requested a whole roasted chicken.  It's in the rider.  LOL  Or was.  Clarence is no longer with us, RIP Big Man..

7: If you could live in any point of history when would it be and why?

 I kind of like where we are now.  If anything, I'd like to check out the future.  See what's up then.  Hang out.  Have a beer.  Then come back.  Win Powerball.   

8: What is the most interesting job you have ever had?

I worked in a couple of different ER's as a secretary/clerk. It's my "go to" job - and I have over 15 years experience.  The job itself wasn't too interesting - it was the shit that went on that was interesting.  One of my favorites ~ Very large man comes in, holding his ass, saying he's got a bad attitude.   To which his friend responded "and that is why you got shot in the ass!"  LOL  It was always different.  Every. single. shift. 

9. Please share one middle school memory. It can be good, bad, ugly, funny. Pictures or words, I don't care, just share.
Brian Lelivre.  6th period math class.  Pointed his pencil at my arm.  And stuck it in.  It stuck.  It bled.  I still have the mark - I could have lead poisoning!  And the teacher?  Mrs. Darling?  Had told us not to speak because she was in the hall talking to another teacher.  She yelled at me for interrupting her.  And then felt really really bad when she saw the blood.  LOL

10. What's your favorite Beatle's song?
I'm going to switch up the question.  I'm adding an apostrophe.  So it's my favorite Beatle's song.  See?  Ownership.  Imagine.  John Lennon.

11. If I asked you to describe your most comfortable outfit, what would it be?

oh silly silly question..On me?  Or on someone else?  Because if it's on me, it'd be sweats.  Or yoga pants and a tshirt.  If it's someone else?  This one:

12. Would you rather host a party or be a guest?

I love hosting parties.  Oh man, I just sneezed.  And something flew out.  Oh, sorry, TMI?  What's worse than sneezing and being sick and having a phleghmball fly out?  Not knowing where it went.  LOL  Oh.  Wait.  Where were we?  Host.  Absolutely. 

13. Do you think we will move completely from traditional books to digital ones, and if we do, are you OK with that?

oh Jesus... not only do I have the kindle app.  I even know where and how to download the NY Times best seller list.  And put it into my Calibre library.  And better yet?  The trees are happy.

14. Do you learn best by reading, listening or experiencing?

I'm a doer of things.  Not a doer like that.  Pig.  Which reminds me, when we were in S Carolina last week (which is why I didn't participate until later in the week) we drove past a bunch of mattresses piled up on the ground.  I suggested that we each strap one on our backs and advertise ourselves as whores.  It was a good idea.  In theory.  LOL

15. If you are (or when you were) single, what is the kiss of death for you concerning the opposite sex? (That is, what is one trait or behavior or habit or anything at all that immediately turns you off from considering that person a potential match for you?)
Neediness.  Can't stand it.  If you need a mommy I'm not for you.  Oh, yeah, and being batshit crazy.  That's a total turnoff.  In case you haven't noticed?  I have a pretty strong personality.  I need someone equally as strong or stronger - otherwise it won't work - and my equal intelligently.  I don't like having to dumb it down.  For anyone. 

16. Snacks. Salty or sweet?

Mix it up!  Gimme some popcorn and M&M's.  Together.  Or ohhhhhhh... some of that delicious stuff that you can buy now - popcorn with white and milk chocolate drizzled all over it.  And then some salt thrown on top?  I just had a moment for myself.  You might want to look away.   LOL

17. Look around you in a four foot radius. What object is around you that you didn't realize was there or forgot was there? How long has it been there?

ooh.  Kitchen Aid recipe book.  It's been there a year.  And I don't buy many recipe books because really, you can look anything up online these days.  But I won this one in a silent auction.  Along with my pretty pink Kitchen Aid mixer.  With the clear bowl.  I hugged the box.  Can you tell I heart my Kitchen Aid?  I think everyone should have one.  It's my favorite appliance.  You should ask that question some time.  What's your favorite appliance?  Men will probably answer microwave.  But trust me - women?  If they have one, they should all say "my Kitchen Aid mixer"..

18. What is your favorite Tom Cruise movie?

He's a doofus.  He jumped the shark for me when he jumped on Oprah's couch.  I don't care.  Oh.  Wait.  I liked Risky Business.  And the one where he's a sports agent.  Dammit.  Do not make me like him again!  Shit.  You had me at "hello"...

19. You buy a bottle of shampoo and discover that you don't like what it does to your hair at all. What do you do with that full bottle?

Throw that shit out.  What's it going to do - turn into one that I like? 

20. Your favorite spring comfort food? (Last week it was beverage.)

Ahhhh, no.  Last week Lance was sick.  There was no last week.  My comfort food any time of the year is baked goods.  If I'm upset, I bake.  Sad?  I bake.  Depressed?  Bake.  Batshit crazy?  Nahhhhhh.... I'm not batshit crazy.  LOL

Just remember, there's no reasoning with batshit crazy...

Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme!

Saturday 9: I Don't Want to Wait

1) Are you impatient?
Instant gratification sometimes isn't fast enough.. but when I need to be patient, I can be :) It all depends on what I'm waiting for.  Am I waiting for a delicious brisket to cook?  Then I have patience.  Because otherwise I'd have the runs, the big D, baboon-butt, the hershey squirts, the "I could shit through a straw" attack..  oh.  Wait.  sorry.  Too much?  Eating uncooked meat isn't good.  If I'm waiting for money?  Damn straight I'm impatient.  I got bills to pay.  

2) Do you believe some people have a gift for predicting the future?
If they did, I wish they'd talk to me.  I would really have liked to have had those powerball numbers last week.  Seriously.  Dead beat dad, or single mom that would share?  Go figure.. 
3) The microwave is a great invention for those who "don't want to wait." What was the last thing you prepared in yours?
Ahhhhhh, no clue.  I rarely use mine except to heat up leftovers.  The boy uses it for popcorn all the time.  I use it to store shit.  LOL 
4) This was the theme of the TV show Dawson's Creek. Michelle Williams, a costar on the show, went on to earn multiple Oscar nominations. Name another performer who started out on TV and then became a movie star.
Never saw that one.  How about George Clooney?  The original Dr. Dreamy from ER.  Demi Moore - started out on General Hospital - not that she does much these days, but still.  Oh, and I never watched Dawson's Creek.  Does that make me a bad person?
5) What's the last bit of advice you received? 
Buy low, sell high?   I have no idea.  Oh, wait.  "You can't reason with crazy"..  I think that was it.  And, strangely enough - it's TRUE.  You can't.  Especially when they are batshit crazy.  Trust me. 
6) What's the last advice you gave?
I just gave you advice.  See #5.  Oh, and stay away from batshit crazy used car salesmen.  They're fucking nuts.  LOL
7) Easter is considered the season of rebirth. What leaves you feeling refreshed or rejuvenated?
Usually the shit/shower/shave threefer.   Gets me moving in the morning. makes me feel clean, lighter and ready for the day.  
8) Easter is also recognized as the start of the spring season. What are you looking forward to this spring?

No more fucking snow.   Yes.  That's right.  I said it.  Fucking snow.  I'm sick of it.  It's not longer "oh, but it makes everything look so pretty".. I took my pictures.  Now move along.  Bring me warmth.  Sun.  Or I'm going to go mid-ieval on yo' ass, Mother Nature. 

9) Which would you rather find in your Easter basket: yellow marshmallow chicks (aka Peeps) or a chocolate bunny?

Neither.  How about a genie that can tell the future and is single.  Oh, and not batshit crazy.  Stay away from batshit crazy.  They will buzz around you like that stupid no-see-um that you can't get.  No damage, just an annoyance.  Until they land.  And then, faster than you can say Emeril Lagasse, it's BAM!  You're dead motherfucker.  LOL  Whoops.  Did I go off topic?

Off with their heads!

Saturday 9: In the Wee Small Hours

1) Crazy Sam's mom and dad still talk about how exciting it was to see Sinatra in Vegas! What music did/do your parents enjoy?
My mother is presently enjoying the harps at the pearly gates, and my father likes jazz, barbershop quartet, 50's kind of stuff - or at least he used to.
2) We all know Sinatra sang, and he won an Oscar for his acting. But he also painted and was proud to sell a few canvasses anonymously (signed "Artanis"). Do you have a secret talent?
If I told you, then it wouldn't be secret any more now, would it?  Let's put it this way.  Beer.  Me.  No hands. 
3) Those close to Sinatra maintained that every time he sang,"In the Wee Small Hours" (hear him perform it live here) he conjured up how it felt to lose his great love. Have you ever had your heart broken?
Yup.  Once.  Worst pain ever.  I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.  And no, I'm not giving details.  
4) In 1966, when he was 50, Sinatra married 21 year old Mia Farrow. Their union lasted less than two years. Do you think a wide age gap necessarily dooms a romantic relationship?
I think that one partner having a penis coming out of his forehead dooms a relationship.  Or someone that can't keep their pants on/legs closed.  Age is relative.  As long are both are over 18, who cares. 

5) Offstage Sinatra wore orange sweaters and liked seeing orange throw pillows in his home and dressing room because he believed "orange is the happiest color." What color raises your spirits?
Green is very calming.  Salmon makes me happy.  The color.  Not the fish.  
6) Frank and his loyal buddies were famously known as "The Rat Pack." How many people do you consider close friends?
Really close friends?  Not many.   Friends/acquaintances - too many to count.  :)
7) Sinatra's children followed their father into show business. What advice would you give a young person entering your career of choice?
Oh good Lord, go to college out of high school or soon after.  Figure out what you want to be before you're 47 and still thinking about law school.  LOL
8) Legend has it that Frank was embarrassed by a scar on his face (received at birth from the forceps used in his delivery) and worked hard to cover it. Do you have a physical characteristic that you try to hide?Not any more.  I had them chopped off.  Off with them, I say!  OFF!
9) In 1964, when he first heard The Beatles, Sinatra was very dismissive. By 1970, he called the Beatles' "Something" one of the most beautiful ballads ever. Tell us about something you changed your mind about.
I learned the hard way that no matter what he says - a man that is involved/married with someone else is full of shit if he tells you otherwise, or that he loves you, that he'll leave, nobody understands him, blah blah blah... If someone truly wanted to be with you - nothing would stop them, they would move heaven and earth to be able to do so.  Anything else is less than anyone deserves.

Ahhhhh Sweet Mystery of Life at last I've found you!

Today we ripped off a blogger named Memphis Steve from the blog Steve's Nude Memphis Blog. He does not say where he got it from, but judging by his profile picture, we don not want to know!   But, it was probably stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Tracing back our theft's thieves might take some time. Take the time to comment on other player's posts. It's a great way to make new friends! Link back to us at Sunday Stealing! 

Sunday Stealing: The Meme From Memphis (part two)

Have any memories that you’d like to forget?
Not really, tequila did a great job on that.  It gives me Alzheimers.  Although there are things that I've seen that I can't unsee, but that's OK.  Beer helps with that.  LOL

Is there someone you really like to hang out with and just talk about stuff?
Um, yeah.  ME.  I'm freaking awesome, you didn't know that?  Puleeeeeeease..  Actually, I'd really like a few minutes with both my mother and my Aunt Harriet.  After I'm done smacking them both for things they left behind, then we could get down to some serious shit.  I have complaints.  I have issues.  They weren't supposed to leave me with some of this shit.  

Have you ever been called prince or princess?
Of course.  I grew up thinking my name was Lathakina the Hawaiian Princess.  And you know that I'm a pretty pretty princess anyway.  Duh...

Do you think teenagers are weird?
Obviously a teenager wrote this.  ALL teenagers are weird.  And they smell.  And they're a bundle of raging hormones.  High school sucks.  

How fast does your mood change?
REALLY?  What do you mean by that?  Are you suggesting I'm bipolar? Piss off!!  

How are you feeling?
Well, I was feeling great, until that last question.  Dammit.  

Do you want someone to call you right now?
Um.  No?  I don't have an overwhelming desire to talk to anyone right now, I don't think..  Can't wait to hear how Erin's St Paddy's day was - but she'll probably text me.  

What do you always take with you?
My ass.  It follows me everywhere.  Can someone get rid of it for me?

Is your bed comfortable?
Is the Pope from Argentina?  I'm 47 years old.  If my bed isn't comfortable by NOW, then I'm in big trouble.  

Would you say you’re an understanding person?
Sure.  Unless you're lying to me.  Then I'll shank a bitch.  And don't ever fuck with my kid.  Then I will mess with your world like nobody's business..

Are you generally a happy person?
Yup.  Just like Tigger.  Tiggers are wonderful things..

Who’s in your facebook profile picture with you?
A rock.  It says "Sacrificial Altar" and I'm lying on it.  It was taken about 10 years ago, in Ireland, on the grounds of the Blarney Castle.  That's right.  I'm cool.  :)

Were you single on Valentines Day?
So.  What of it?  Don't you judge me.  Back off bitch.  You don't know me.  You don't know my life.  

What is the last movie you watched?
No clue.  Oh, wait.  That airplane one with Denzel Washington.  I used to think he was kind of hot, now not so much.  

Do you listen to songs when you’re done?
When  I'm done with what?  Killing someone (never have)?  Dancing a jig?  My shower? Sex?  There could be a few "ahhhhhh sweet mystery of life at last I found youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu...'s" in my past..

How long does it take you to fall asleep at night?
Not really sure.  I've never noticed.  Should I count some sheep tonight and get back to you?

Are you talkative?
You tell me.  I don't think I'm to the level where I could talk starving dogs off a meat wagon, but I can hold my own..

What are your St. Patty's day plans?
Catching up on memes.  Cleaning the house.  No green beer this year.  Dammit.  
But Top O'The morning to ye! 

There are bars on Disney cruises, right? Please?

Saturday 9: Hakuna Matata

1) Sam is crazy for The Lion King. Do you have a favorite Disney movie?
Escape to Witch Mountain.  The original.  LOL  Really, I don't know.  Oh, wait.  was Evil Dead a Disney Movie?  Huh... didn't think so..

2) The song tells us that Hakuna Matata "means no worries." Is something worrying you right now?
Come on, I'm a single mom.  I'm a homeowner.  Of COURSE there is always something worrying me.  I worry about lots of things - everyone does.  Right now I'm worried that my niece isn't having fun meeting a bunch of family at the annual St Patrick's Day bash.  I wish I were there to help her out.  But considering the fact that I haven't heard anything from her - I think she's OK.  LOL

3) Who is the most optimistic person you know?
Me.  Come on now.  That was easy.  I'm always a glass half full person. 

4) Elton John wrote "Hakuna Matata" but didn't record it. Name a song Sir Elton is famous for singing.
Jeez luiz, that man could sing the phone book and be famous for it.   I love Rocket Man.  Ba-Ba-Ba BENNY and the Jets, Crocodile rock - all that great stuff :)

5) Can you play the piano?
Can you put tulips on an organ?  Everyone knows chopsticks, at least. 

6) Congratulations! You just won a guided African Safari Tour! 8 days in Zambia and Botswana for you and a friend. All expenses paid, and allowing you access to breathtaking, unforgettable sights. It takes at least 30 hours to get there, and before you go you'll need yellow fever and hepatitis vaccinations and medication to prevent malaria. Are you up for it?
Sure.  But why can't I just go to the beach for a week?  Isn't there a cash option?

7) There's been a mistake. You really won a 4-night Disney Bahamas Cruise for two. Are you relieved or disappointed that you'll be partying with a guy in a Simba suit on the Lido Deck instead of observing a real lion in the wild?
Shoot me now.  I'll be at the bar.  They do have bars on Disney cruises, don't they?

8) Let's bring this back to real life -- do you have any vacation plans?
I'm headed to S Carolina Wednesday for 5 days.  Wedding.  Fun.  Wedding fun.  Oh yeah....

9) Describe your luggage. Is it durable and high quality? Or are you like Crazy Sam, who has been known to use an Old Navy shopping bag as her carry-on?
Don't you judge me.  I have so much luggage I give it away.  I got like 12 suitcases (really good, leather stuff) at an estate sale.  The one I use the most?  The hard-sided one.  You can fit SO much shit in there, it's ridiculous.  So that's what I use.

That's right, bitch...

Today we ripped off a blogger named Memphis Steve from the blog Steve's Nude Memphis Blog. He does not say where he got it from, but judging by his profile picture, we don not want to know!   But, it was probably stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go.

Click on Steve's name to see his real profile picture...

Be honest, who texted you last?
Dan.  Telling me that the Tastefully Simple vidalia onion dressing makes a fabulous cole slaw.  Who knew?!  Other than that?  Your mom...

Do you sleep with the bedroom door open or closed?

Usually open.  Unless my boyfriend is over.  Then it's locked.  Soundproofed.  Etc.  You know the deal... LOL

Do you drink tea?

Didn't I just answer this question?  You Saturday-Sunday peeps need to get together..

Do you have plans for tomorrow?
Yeah.  Work.  What of it?  What do you think, I live a life of leisure?  I wish! 

What’s worse: dry skin or chapped lips?
Seriously now, it's winter.  If you don't have one, you have the other - and some people are lucky enough to have both.   Speaking of chapped lips, anyone see Cameron Diaz's picture this week?  Her lips are a hot mess.  Ugh..

Would you be surprised if Facebook started charging?
You know, if they did - I would have so much time freed up in my day it'd be redonkulous. But it would also piss me off because I keep in touch with so much of my family on there. 

Would you rather go to Canada or California on vacation?

Right now it's winter.  Almost spring, I know - but it's winter.  I like warm.  I'll go for SoCal, please..  and during the summer? PEI.  How's that?

How many social media sites are you registered with?
Prolly a lot.  I'm sure if you really wanted to know, you could check with my internet stalker.  He keeps finding me.  Ugh.

Are you wearing jeans, shorts, sweatpants or pajama pants?

Yoga pants.  How's THAT for an answer!   I just got back from the gym and holy shit my legs are really pissed off at me!

So, what if you changed lives for one day with the last person you texted?

I'd be a gay man.  Fun!  I'd dress in drag for the whole day and call everyone bitch. 

Last person you told a secret to?
Why, you want to know what it is?  I'm not telling you!  You'll hunt them down and find out what the secret is and then use it against me in horrible ways.  No way.  Uh uhn.  Not falling for that one.  Bitch.  

What are you listening to at the moment?

the boy playing video games, the typing of the keyboard and the clicking of my oven.  I'm baking a chocolate cake for my friend's son's birthday.  And I can't eat it.  Any.  of.  it.  But on the good side - I've lost 7 lbs. on the diet I'm on.  So take that you stupid chocolate cake.  Bitch.

Where was the last place you fell asleep other than your bed?

My other bed.  Yeah.  That's right.  I have two.  Bitch. 

Is there someone that you believe you will always be attached to?

Um... at the hip?  In each others lives?  What do you mean?  Like my son, I'll always be attached to him.  His father?  Well, I do have the best part of him - but does that make us attached?  Not so sure...  You know who I'd LIKE to be attached to, though, right?

Are you going to any concerts this year?
Hoping that Bruce does a 2nd US leg, hoping that Maroon 5 comes back - he said he'd be back this way in the summer...  So yeah.  Prolly.  :)  Bitch. 

Do you believe in Karma? 

Oh yeah..... it is SUCH a bitch.  Bitch.

I'm sorry, did you say CORNFLOWER blue?

Saturday 9: Midnight Train to Georgia

Click the link to play along :)  It's fun!

1) Have you ever been to the Atlanta?
Hotlanta?  A'lanna?  I've been in the airport.  That's it.  I think it was big.  
2) Do you enjoy traveling by train?
I used to take the commuter rail into work when I lived in Boston.  I've taken the train from downtown to Midway in Chicago.  They are two totally different experiences.  One was the "hang with the regulars and talk about your weekend" the other was running up 4 flights of stairs with a 50 lb. suitcase, no, wait, that's 54 because it was OVER..  and hoping to catch the train that will bring you to the airport on time...  You pick.  Did I enjoy?  Or did I want to stab myself in the right eye with a fork?
3) "Midnight Train to Georgia" is Sam Winters' signature number at the karaoke bar. What's your go-to song when you take the mic?
Well, first off.  My mother loved that song.  Every time I hear it, I think of her.  Second.  Seriously?  The screech that emanates from the large speakers when I get up to do karaoke is like the movies when a loud sound is heard and everyone holds their ears tightly and looks to the sky to see what is coming toward them at light speed to ruin their world and crash into their houses.  So no.  I don't take the mic.  People thank me for not taking the mic.
4) Do you drink tea?
At 4, with crumpets?  I did that once.  In the London Museum of Natural History.  Damn that was good stuff.  mmm  I heart London.  I want to go back now, please.   Oh, wait.  You mean like Lipton?  Not really.  Unless I'm sick - then I'll take it with 2 bags, 12 sugars and a little milk.  Hot & sweet, just like I like my men.  Fanks.
5) What's the most recent thing you purchased for your home?
Like as in groceries to keep in the home and eat?  Or like a new garage door?  I think the last thing I bought at Home Depot was paint.  Before that?  Coffee maker.  I don't buy it gifts, like a bracelet or anything.  Really.  How would it wear it?
6) Are there dishes in your kitchen sink right now?
Don't you judge me.  

7) Have you ever been fingerprinted?
Sigh..... yes.   And I had to pee in a cup.  AND a background check done.  For work, people... for work!
8) What was the last check you wrote?
To my friend Angie for a seriously awesome massage..  You should call her.  She's fabulous. And I get to have it done on work time.  Reason #476 why I love my job.  LOL
9) What color are your eyes?
Blue... But not cornflower blue.  Is that even a color?  I used to be in a moms group where one of them (who was the absolute WHACK JOB of the bunch) would refer to the color of her son's eyes as "cornflower blue".  She was craaaaaaaaaaaaaaaazy.   Cray-cray.  Off her rocker crazy.  Nuts, even.  
**OK - I actually did a google search... But she is still crazy.  LOL

Happy Saturday - until tomorrow, biotches!!  :)

Wordfull Wednesday..

Hmmmm... Usually it's wordless Wednesday, but I'm full of it - so me?  Wordless?  Surely you jest...

Just some rambling thoughts..

I started a new diet today.  A couple of friends did it, and it worked great for them, so I figure why not give it a shot.  It's called the Dukan Diet.  Look it up.  I can't do Weight Watchers - too much figuring stuff out for me, I need easy.  Jenny Craig was SUPER easy - they give you the food, tell you what to eat and when to eat it.  But it's not cheap.  It can be upwards of $125-150/week.  I can't afford that. 

My taxes still aren't done.  Sigh...  This is the latest I've ever gone without having them done and in my account already.  I'm still waiting for one form from the Cape house trust, and once I have that I'm good to go. 

An old ex of mine got remarried and had a baby.  He (the baby) just turned a year old, and is adorable.  I'm still in touch with his daughter, and see pictures from time to time.  I feel bad how things ended, they weren't nice.  My mother had just died, he was doing stuff on the computer that I didn't like - and then just hid it.  Which, if anyone knows me, don't hide shit from me - I'll find out.  I think we both had a lot of issues at the time and when we broke up he was very angry.  When I saw the pictures, I just felt happy for him - happy that he obviously worked out his issues, he found love and had another kid.   That's something I always wanted - more kids. 

But not by myself.  Hells to the no...

The boy is driving.  He's got his permit.  We drove into Grand Rapids the other day - "big city" for around here, and he did great.  I had to grab the wheel once because he was looking to merge and wasn't paying attention to where we were going.  Whoops.  But I didn't yell.  I remember driving with my mother, in my father's Peugeot station wagon.  No power steering.  None of that sissy crap, I tell you.   I think we drove together once.  I was driving, she was either in the passenger seat or the back seat and she yelled the whole 2 miles that I drove.  "JESUS MARY AND JOSEPH, WATCH WHAT YOU'RE DOING!!!!  GEORGE!  DON'T LET HER GO SO FAST.  SLOW DOWN FOR CHRIST'S SAKE!!!"... You get the point..  In any case, I pulled the car over on the side of the road, got out and told her to drive.  I never drove with her again.  LOL

My cousin has been having some issues, and again it's in the back of my mind that I should be home.  I feel bad that I'm not there to help her out, and support her.  I'm really torn - the boy has 2 years left in High School.  To move him now would be awful for him.  He'd be the new kid.  Everyone hates being the new kid.   Especially when you don't drink, do drugs or play sports.  Ugh..

Happy Hump Day :)

Stupid Lottery

Today we ripped off a blogger named Leo from the blog Leonine's Journal. He was tackling a meme that his blogging site, Live Journal, hosts. It has 5,000 questions. He did a hundred. So, we will take it from there. Link back to us at Sunday Stealing!
If you missed any part, and wish to catch up, Bud posted the first 100 here:
The 5000 Question Meme, Part Four 

101. What does happiness/joy feel like physically? 

Like rainbows, unicorns and puppies all rolled into one..

102. List five things you love starting with the one you love the absolute most.

A  My kid

B  My family (the ones I talk to)

C  My friends

D  Food.  I'll admit it.  I love food dammit.  Food food food.  Yum. Yum.  Yum.

The ocean

103. How many movies have you gone to see this year? 

It's only March 3rd.  Come on, give me a break.  None.  OK.  Satisfied?  NONE.  
104. If you could have 3 wishes...but none of them could be for yourself, what would you wish for?

1.  For people to stop fighting over stupid shit.
2. For people to have respect for each other.
3.  For anyone that ever abuses a child to just disappear into a cloud of smoke.
105. In what ways do you relax and de-stress when you are really tense? 

I play Bejeweled.  Right now I'm #3 on my leader board.  But it's a great, mindless thing to do.

106. How much money would it take to get you to sell your blog address?

Buck three-eighty.  Why, you want it?  Seriously.  Who would want Boston65, other than another 47 year old from Boston.  And then how many 47 year olds from Boston want to write a blog?  I'm sure if I had some porn blog address people would want it.  Like - ooh, bigdick or winemedineme... you know. 

107. Have you ever been hunting?

Hunting wabbits?  Never.  I've eaten the spoils of the hunt, though.  And come on, I live in Michigan - opening day for hunting season is like a national holiday here.   

108. Have you attempted this 5000 question meme in the past?

Um.  No.  Have you? 

109. What do you think of cloning? 

Oh dear, one of me is more than enough, don't you think?

110. Do you read or watch TV more often? 

I watch TV, and read before I go to sleep.  Usually I'm tired and don't get to read much, so I'll go with A, Wink. 

111. With all this talk of terrorism going around are you willing to sacrifice rights and freedoms for increased safety? 

Yeah... um... is this from 10 years ago?  I'm willing to spend more time in line, have more shit looked at and do whatever it takes to make sure that a plane that I get on will arrive safely. 

112. What is the punishment you would come up with for Osama Bin Laden if you caught him alive? 

oh, gee, I don't know - maybe DEATH??  Oh.  Wait.  Someone already did that..

113. Have you ever named an individual part of your body? 

Other than "the girls", which by the way, are fabulous - no.  Would you like me to name things?  I could call my pinky toe Ralph or Gladys, ooh!  I know - my right tibia?  Fred.  My left ulna?  Cicely.  Want me to name more?

114. Have you ever been on the radio or on TV? 

OMG, how many times do we have to go over this - I.  AM.  A.  BIG.  DEAL.   Not to mention a pretty pretty princess.  So yes.  To both.  Don't ask me again, or I'll take my autograph back! 

115. Have you ever won a lottery, or sweepstakes?

I won $500 on a scratch ticket like 2 days before I left to go on vacation.  That was stellar. I've never won the lottery of love, though.  Yeah.  That's what it's like.  A lottery.  You spin around in a giant hampster wheel, hoping that Mr. Right will pull out your number, but instead you get a guy named *insert name here* that drinks waaaaaaaaaaaay too much, and red flags are popping up all over the place, and while you think that it'd be nice to have someone around, you just can't picture it ever happening?  Yeah.  Oh.  wait.  Wrong lottery.  In the words of the late, great Emily Litella?  Never mind.. 

116. Have you ever won a contest or competition?
Are you fucking kidding me.  I JUST went over this.  Read #115 again.

117. Have you ever watched The Joy of Painting show with Bob Ross (check out this link if you don't know who he is. 

Oh dear Lord - look at that hair.  And really?  He died in 1995.  NINETEEN NINETY FIVE.  That was before my kid, who is now driving, was BORN.

118. Do you know what your grandparents and your great grand parents did for a living? 

My grandmother worked for a bank, my grandfather was a painter.  No clue about their parents.  On my father's side?  My grandfather worked for the Boston Police - the rumor is he was one of the first motorcycle patrolmen, and my grandmother stayed home.  No clue about their parents.

119. Is there anything really interesting in your family history? 

Baaaaaaaaaaaaahahahahahahaahahaaaa!!  That's funny.  Where should I start

120. Is there anyone you trust completely?
