Dear three readers,
I wish I had more exciting news to share. I wish I had *any* news to share. Alas, the truth is things are pretty damn quiet ’round these parts which is good, I suppose.
So, here’s a meme:
1) What did you want to be as a child when you grew up?
Well, at times I wanted to be a journalist or a lawyer. Then I took Intro to Psych in my senior year of high school and that was all she wrote. Being a therapist was my dream. Spending 30 years in the financial services arena? Merely a detour. I’m exactly where I want to be right now.
2) Can you bend forward and touch your toes with your legs straight?
I can! My Pilates instructor says I am quite the flexible chick. (Especially for having to deal with the chubs! And btw she didn’t add that part. I did.)
3) What is your most annoying habit?
Duty will tell you it’s scraping the fork along my teeth while eating. I will tell you that my low need for order has probably annoyed a large segment of those who’ve lived with me.
4) What habit would you change of your partners?
Uh, his wee bit o’nagging. Yeeesh. “Honey, can you JUST remember to put the dishes in the dishwasher when you’re done with them?” Hello? I’m 51. I know to do that. If I didn’t, I either forgot (encroaching old age) or I didn’t want to for some reason known only to the duck I tell all my secrets to. Jeez oh pete!
5) Horrors or Chick Flicks?
I can recite all the lines from “Bridget Jones’s Diary” so that should answer it for you, yes?
6) What is the most outrageous thing you have done in the back row of the movies?
Not one damn thing. I am most compliant and don’t (often) do outrageous things in places where I shouldn’t.
7) If you had the house childfree what is the first thing you and your partner would do?
The house is *always* childfree so I’ll answer it as if the question were what we’d do if the house were PET-FREE and to that I’d say SLEEP past 5:45am every day!
8) Have you ever lied to get a job?
No, I haven’t. There’s just no point in doing that – you end up in the wrong job and it makes you feel like crap so, no.
9) What one thing is on your list to do before you hit 30, 40, 50 or whatever significant birthday is next?
Gosh, that’s a hard one. Next significant birthday would be 60 (OH MY GOD!) and I’d like to have my own ‘very successful’ business going strong by then. Working on it now. :)
10) Classic or modern films and why?
Modern, probably. Every time I’ve gone back to watch what’s considered a “classic” film, it’s never lived up to the hype (for me). I know The Gal will disagree. Movies just don’t ‘move me’ the way they used to so I don’t even really know how to answer this. How about we just skip this Q altogether?
11) If you were a vampire who would be the first person you would bite?
Hmm, if I bite them, do they become my vampire lover forever? I wonder if I’d get sick of Cookie if I were with him forever. (hahahahh yeah, right.) I’d choose someone I’d want to hang out with for eternity to bite first so yeah, Cookie might do it for me. He’s got the pretty, he’s got the voice and he’s a genuinely nice person. Okay, that’s settled then.
You cannot answer a question and then say you’ll skip it altogether. That’s more annoying than the fork/teeth thing! To a girl born in 20 years ago, John Hughes is a classic filmmaker and “Bridget Jones Diary” is an oldie her mom used to rave about. I think the parameters for classics are forever moving.
Journalist? No, I don’t see that for you. BUT you could totally be a columnist or maybe a documentary filmmaker like Michael Moore. Then again, it wouldn’t suit you as well as what you’re doing now. You seem to be just where you want to be/should be.
Lisa, I love you. You always put a smile on my face with your humor.
Don’t ever stop.
