Today’s Sunday Stealage was a long-ass one and some of the questions were sorta mundane so I picked the ones that I thought would most amuse
me you and perhaps share some new info that you might not know about me. Let’s see if I can get through this without mentioning Cookie, Hal, coffee, cats, woo-woo or books, K?
Here we go:
Are you happy? More or less. I think I will always find something to be dissatisfied with and grumble about it (inside my head usually) but overall, I have a good life.
Are you bored? At the moment, yes, despite having a house full of books, toys and other fun stuff. It’s an inside boredom that cannot be assuaged by something outside me – this is a lesson I have yet to fully learn.
Are you naked? The only time I am nekkid is when I’m in the shower and I’m pretty sure they haven’t invented a computer you can take in the shower *YET* so, no.
Are you a blonde? Parts of my (formerly lovely raven color) hair are now blondish highlights. I miss my natural hair color.
Are you moody? While I’d like to pretend I’m not, I really am. Mostly, I keep it inside but you can tell when I’m not chirpy or cheerful that something is going on underneath. I get real quiet.
Are you a lover/hater? I’m a woo-woo chick (oops! Lost my bet from the opening paragraph! damn) so full of the love and not of the hate. There are those people/things I dislike greatly but I don’t run around carrying the hate. It only hurts you in the long run.
Are you hot/cold? “Cause you’re hot then you’re cold /You’re yes then you’re no /You’re in and you’re out /You’re up and you’re down”
Nicknames:: Lis, Minister of Fun, Mrs. Cook, (oops, there’s one for Cookie), Sweetie, Dolt
Favorite color: Take a look at this blog and you’ll know.
Do you believe in love at first sight? No, but I do believe in immediate attraction.
Do you believe in soul mates? I do, but not necessarily in the romantic sense. A true soul mate is one who helps your soul do the work you came to do and encourages growth. That could be the person who challenges you most in this lifetime. I consider Cousin/who/hates/me a soul mate of sorts because by engaging with her, I’ve grown a lot in my own beliefs and ability to stand up for them in the face of ridicule.
Have you ever been hurt emotionally? I defy you to find me ONE PERSON who has not been hurt emotionally. It’s part of the human experience and it’s also one of the ways we grow the most.
Have you ever broken someoneâ€™s heart? Probably although that would never been my intent going into anything.
Have you ever been cheated on? Yes, and those experiences have taught me to always, ALWAYS trust my inner knowing.
Have you ever liked someone and not told them? I’m pretty sure Cookie and Hal (oops!) are completely and utterly unaware that I adore them. Wait, I did fling myself into Hal’s arms at this last show and tell him I love him so scratch that one. Cookie, though, blissfully unaware I’m sure.
Are you afraid of commitment? I would say I still have some residual trust issues that make it difficult for me to fully open up. There are very, very few who know the real me.
Who was the last person you hugged? Duty when he surprised me by showing up at work Friday when he wasn’t due home from SC until mid-day Saturday. One of the FEW times he’s surprised me like that – he usually manages to give it away somehow.
Who was the last person you kissed? Sophia (my cat) … oh wait. You said PERSON … Duty, of course.
Love or lust? Both and in large quantities, please. Lust is especially fun!
Cats or dogs? While I love me some doggies, I most resonate with cat energy and plan to always have one or more in my home.
A few best friends or many regular friends? I’d rather have just one or two close friends. I keep a tight circle.
Television or internet? Internets, hands down. Especially now when you can see pretty much anything that was on television online soon after.
Chinese Or Indian? I love Indian food. Haven’t had it for a long time but mmmmm Chicken tikka marsala!
Wild night out or romantic night in? I haven’t had either in many, many years so either one might be fine. If I had to choose, it’d be the romantic night in.
Money or Happiness? Money eases worries and helps bring happiness but money doesn’t equal happiness. So, having to choose one? Happiness, hands down.
Night or day? Both have their merits. I like a sunny day, though. Makes me feel happy to be alive. The night is good for under the covers and reading.
Been skinny dipping? No, and I’m pretty sure that ship has sailed in this lifetime for me unless the cats want to get their dip on and that’s unlikely.
Stolen? Yes, I am sad to say. And for no other reason than I could. It’s not like I needed that stuff.
Lied to someone you liked? Yes. Often to my mother. I didn’t want to get in trouble for stuff I had done so I took the “What she doesn’t know won’t hurt her” approach. And yes, I know. Not a good thing to do.
Wanted an ex bf/gf back? Yeah, but mostly because I was sad they left me.
Cried because you lost a pet? I’ve shed more tears over losing my cats than I have for almost any person (Lauren and my parents aside). They are so close to my heart.
Wanted to disappear? More than I can (and should) go into on this blog. I’m having one of those “I don’t want to hang out with myself”
days, weeks, months years.
Ever performed in front of a large crowd? I’ve given speeches, does that count?
Ever done drugs? Nope, not a one. I’d like to try something before I die but I’ll probably like it and end up an 80 year old drug addict.
Ever been pregnant? Yes.
Ever been on a cheer leading team? They don’t let sad little chubby girls on those things.
Ever been on a sports team? No and I really have no concept of how to work together as a team in something like that. I always marvel at how players on a team just seem to know intuitively what to do, where their teammate will be on the field, etc. It’s interesting to me.
