I can hardly believe that I haven't done a Saturday 9 since January! I thought that they had some very provocative questions this week. Don't know if the same could be said for my answers. lol
Saturday 9: Changes
1. Tell us about one thing that you'd change about yourself if you could.
I have to limit it to one? For the record, I don't think that's fair at all, but it'll probably be much less boring for you. If I could change one thing with a magic wand, I would be thinner. My weight has caused me a lot of heartache for a variety of reasons. But I suppose, this keeps me humble. ;)
2. Mattel decides to make a Barbie-like (or Ken-like) doll of you -- what would be the most important accessory or accessories they would absolutely have to package you with in order to portray your lifestyle?
I'm torn ... Bible ... Dance Shoes ... Bible ... Dance Shoes. The world may never know.3. Hey, do you like surprises? If yes, what kinds?
Sure I like surprises if they're related to something I like, and they're not revealed in front of a large group of people. I don't particularly like Surprise Parties, which seem to be more about the guests/organizers rather than the "honoree," who as likely as not didn't shower that day and is in their oldest rattiest clothes, while everyone else is in their Sunday best. Now, if you want to surprise me with chocolates, diamonds, or a trip with thou to Paris, that's something I could really go for! A surprise of the love of my life showing up unannounced on my doorstep would be my fondest wish come true. Yes, I like surprises.
4. What was the last snail mail that you received that was significant?
An Easter card from my good friend Anne. That woman sends great letters. She has been such a help to me at school with her traditional correspondence. She has no idea. (Though I have tried to express my appreciation. lol)5. If you could pick out a brand new nickname for yourself, what would you choose and why?
You know that person that I talked about showing up on my doorstep in question 3? If he decided to call me, "My Darlin' Clementine," I don't think I would mind.6. John Edward's mistress was on Oprah this past Thursday. She stated that no third person can break up a marriage, so it had to be broken before the two started doing the nasty. Do you buy that?
I absolutely buy that. Just as it takes two to tango, it takes two to keep a relationship alive. I get very angry when the "third party" is blamed for "luring" the married person. The "third party" is not the one who made the commitment vows. It is the married individual who is responsible. Now, that doesn't mean that I think it's a good idea for single people to be sleeping with married persons, but that is different topic.
7. Do you think it is okay to keep secrets from your s/o?
Some, but not about the important things. You could ask, what are the important things? Or maybe a better way to describe it is that one shouldn't hide things from their s/o. They may not care to know that when I was 8 years old, I fell off my bike and skinned my knee. That I'm spending over $200/week in my gambling habit? That might qualify as important. I'm just sayin'. (But I'm not saying that I gamble. Money is far to scare for me to even consider such a thing. LOL)8. Have you ever played Truth or Dare? If yes, what's the weirdest dare that you did?
It seems that I did many, many, many years ago, but I think I always went with "truth." Yes, I know. I'm a chicken. :)9. What, in hindsight, the stupidest thing that you have ever done?
So many things to choose from!!! The night I drank 13 Kamikazes. I must say that I had a good time that night, but I found out the next morning that the wages of sin are high. LOL
That's all for now. Have a great weekend!
