Sunday Stealing

(Link in meme-roll)
I Want To Be Famous Meme

1. Would you like to be famous? In what way?
I'd like to be famous for being the least famous person ever. In other words, I have no interest at all in ever being "known."
2. Before making a telephone call, do you ever rehearse what you are going to say? Why?
I do, whenever I'm calling a business I've never called. Also whenever I call the insurance company, or to ask a favor. I don't want to sound like an idiot, and I want to make sure I cover all the points needed.
3. What would constitute a "perfect" day for you?
A sunny warm day in the mountains of Colorado, just looking at scenery, listening to wind and animals, and soaking it up.
4. When did you last sing to yourself? To someone else?
I sing to myself regularly. If I were at work listening to music without headphones, it would be a daily occurrence. I believe I probably warbled at a coworker Friday, believe it or not; I remember because she commented on it. Really singing? Probably something with Sparky or Beast, though I don't remember anything specific.
5. If you were able to live to the age of 90 and retain either the mind or body of a 30-year-old for the last 60 years of your life, which would you want?
Mind, with some stipulations. I don't want to go down the road my sister traveled with MSA. I'd prefer to keep mind AND body at a similar status level throughout my life.
6. Do you have a secret hunch about how you will die?
No clue. Hopefully fast and relatively painlessly, since I'm allergic to morphine.
7. For what in your life do you feel most grateful?
8. If you could change anything about the way you were raised, what would it be?
I would have a better personal relationship with my mom. I wish we'd sorted out our differences.
9. If you could wake up tomorrow having gained any one quality or ability, what would it be?
The ability to keep my opinions to myself!
10. If a crystal ball could tell you the truth about yourself, your life, the future or anything else, what would you want to know?
Nope, not interested.
11. What does friendship mean to you?
Give and take. Compromise. Loyalty. Laughter. Shared history.
12. What roles do love and affection play in your life?
I'm not sure I even understand that question. It's important for me to feel safe and loved and I like people who aren't afraid to let those feelings show. Is that what we're looking for here?
13. When did you last laugh?
I've been laughing at the post-match coverage of Wimbledon pretty regularly. If I were Djokovic's wife, I'd be pretty jealous of that trophy!
14. Are you a morning person or a night owl?
Morning. Although with my current psycho sleep schedule, mornings pretty much suck. I'm usually awake between 1 and 3 a.m., so I guess that's still morning though, right?
15. Seen anything weird lately?
Every day at work, yes. Actually, yesterday Beast found all his mom's parent's jewelry--in a paper bag in a drawer, so secure--and went through it. One ring is quite odd. It's an asymmetrical circle, looks like a crystal made of silver, is studded with small diamonds, and is probably 3/4" around. So weird. I did snag a hematite ring from the stash that I actually like, by most of the rest is way too showy and huge for my taste.

We hit nearly the same exact points for friendship and I've no interest in gazing into a crystal ball, either.

That does sound like a nice day in Colorado. I haven't been there in a long time though

CountryDew said...

My mother died before we could "fix" our relationship. But looking back on it, I don't think it was fixable. I did all I could.

You have such well considered answers here. Enjoyed reading them so much.

Sounds like a perfect, perfect day.
