Some Fun Because I Really Need A Distraction

I just love this song...reminds me of summer always! I still remember it being played at our community pool when I grew up! Ahhhhh...

Ok, I got this from Robin & I need to just have a distraction now since last weeks sadness is really lingering. I'll post on it later but right now I can't. My whole family is just devistated.

1.Have you ever been searched by the cops? 

"no, but I once knew a cop I would have loved to have search me...cuff me too."

This was actually Robin's response & this probably explains why I like her journal....it would be my response TOTALLY!!!! ;-) Actually I can think of 2 of them! (I'm soooooo bad!) And there are quite a few I've seen on the road that should not be allowed out there. They are suppose to prevent accidents not cause them by being a sexual distraction! HA!

2. Do you close your eyes on roller coasters?

ABSOLUTELY NOT!!! I'm always in the first car with my shoes off! It is awesome on Vertical Velocity when you hang there for a few seconds! HA! Of course roller coasters thrills is what got my foot in trouble soooo, but I'm going for the first time since my injury on Wed. Cross your fingers. I figured I can sit on a bench if I have to & see the shows & that will help. It is a Dental event so the whole family is going  to see our friends & considering last weeks events, family has even more top priority now!

3. When's the last time you've been sledding?

Sledding? Well, I don't remember that? I guess as a kid. One of my friends had a hill in her backyard & there would be like 30 kids always there even if they were not home. We never ask just went! HA! My folks did have an 6 person tobaggon & we had these tobaggon runs like 5 minutes from our house. We had a blast. My baby brother was in front the first time & after we went down the first time & were heading back up to go again he told my dad "This time I'm going to keep my eyes open!" HA! Now I did go skiing about 6 yrs ago...I think the winter before I injured my foot. Bang the back of my head pretty bad...don't anyone say "That explains alot" because my neurologist check my MRI & says my brain is perfectly normal so PFFFT! I know sue her for malpractice then! HA! Anyway, I love sledding & making snowmen & snow angels....maybe my foot will cooperate & I can next winter. We didn't get much snow last winter. Have to get those Eskimo boots to keep my feet toasty...maybe a nice fire afterwards....where is that cop with the cuffs from #1 HAAAA!

4. Would you rather sleep with someone else, or alone? 

Depends on if I want to get some sleep or some action. LOL! 

This too was Robin's response & YEP I agree...but it did say Sleep so hmmm depends I suppose of why I'm needing the sleep. I like to snuggle (spoons) but I do tend to turn all night so? I guess if we turn in unison! Ha! I think lately with last week it would be more likely with someone....need all the moments you can and the love & tenderness.

5. Do you believe in ghosts?

Depends what you are considering "a ghost"...the spooky kind...heck no! Do I believe our loved one's spirits are with us...I would say a bit. Not huge like the goofy guy on tv but you will catch me saying "Ok, Grandma" when something drops off the counter that had absolutely no reason to fall etc. I suppose a bit like the movie "Ghost" remember. At least I leave the possiblity because God can do anything right.  

6. Do you consider yourself creative?

I'd say yes. I never thought I was, I mean I can't draw! You should see the stick figure rats I draw from my students...actually I got a graphic because they were so pathetic but I am as far as creative ideas for my students. Especially when I'm treadmilling or biking...I come up with lost of ideas. My students will say, "You've been biking haven't you" when I come in with something new. I also like to decorate...like I have this thing for hanging things from ceilings in corners. 3 of my rooms have them. I'll have to add some pictures later. I like getting creative with my powerpoints & website and giving presents etc. I did find this puzzle for my niece's b-day & I'm going to have her & grandpa do it & then glue it & I'll frame it & put in my 2nd bedroom which the bedspread is big orange & yellow flowers. I love watercolors like this too...I should learn how to do this I might be able to. Got her some butterfly sheets too. I like to put get creative making baskets for weddings & baby showers. Weddings get all the massage oil & tools from The Body Shop & a book etc. Baby showers get all the red, white & black cognitive stuff to learn! :-)




7. Do you think O.J. killed his wife?

ABSOLUTELY!

8. Jennifer Aniston or Angelina Jolie?

For what? Well, quite frankly I think a combo of the too would be ideal....soft & sweet but then some bad girl too! That is what I always strive for! ;-)

9. Do you stay friends with your exes?

I suppose it depends why we are an ex. I would try to. I mean my idea is if you loved the person & it was real love you will always love them. That is my problem I suppose if you do get in my heart you will always be there. It would be a lot easier I suppose if I could hate them, well my grandma always told me not to hate but disliked them & then could say "Good Riddance" to them and move on very easily. Ugh!

10. Do you know how to play poker?

You mean like Strip poker?  Actually I don't know how to play any kind of poker.

Again, this is Robin's response & works for me too! You know I know the general idea so I'm sure I would pick up with it but the memory of what was thrown down etc would be my problem...well that depends on who you want stripping! HA!

11. Have you ever been awake for 48 hours straight? 

Good God of course I was a grad student! Heck I think I did that in college. In fact, I know I did more than 48 hrs because my dad came picked me up for winter break after finals week & I told him he was going to have to pack me & I was going to sleep the whole 4 hours home. I didn't sleep & for days after I was home...I think my family wanted to put something in my drink! It was getting scary! Next question is have you slept for 48 hrs straight..probably on & off when I'm sick or knocked out on drugs after surgery etc.

12. What's your favorite commercial? 

Oh man...you know they do not make commercials like they use to. I actually have my students use commercials for their persuasion chapter. My examples are the McDonalds one where the older brother offers the french fry to his sister as she grows up...remember...little did we know then he was killing her off with trans fats for the parent's inheritance! HA! Or the Mean Joe Green Coke Commercial...dang I feel old now. I'll have to watch & see if there are any recent ones....ok the "I'd Like to Teach the World To Sing" one too...ahhhh!

13. What are you allergic to?

I loved one of Robins...saving money! YEP I must be too! HA! I suppose though if gas didn't rob me & I made more money I could save but...

I'm allergic to Bees & other stinging insects like that, I think crabmeat slightly, one drug I was given last year made me feel like I was going to pass out within a few minutes of taking it. Hmmm what else...nasty people, guys who have a fake macho attitude...I seem to react to them big time.."Oh really" & "Excuse Me..." comes out & then watch out! Fake women...avoid them like the plague! People who are on a powertrip...no time for their lack of self-esteem! Yep...do pray for them with some compassion but just don't have time to waste on them...more important things to do in life.

14. If you're driving in the middle of the night, and no one is around do you run red lights?

ABSOLUTELY NOT! If it is wrong, it is wrong!

15. Do you have a secret that no one knows but you?

Hmmm have to think about that....maybe a few but nothing hurtful or anything.  

16. Boston Red Sox or New York Yankees?

NEITHER! CUBS! I'm an animal person! HA! Love those guys who are ANIMALS! HA!

17. Have you ever been Ice Skating?

Yep, when I was a kid...until my knee would not cooperate.

18. How often do you remember your dreams? 

Quite a bit...dang what was it this morning now? I have to bring a pen & paper to my bedroom & start jotting them down. Country woke me up abruptly chomping on Dusty again this morning. He even had hair in his mouth! Ugh!

19. When was the last time you laughed so hard you cried?

Not that long ago. I love doing that!

20. Can you name 5 songs by The Beatles?

Well, this is a goofy question because now that the previous person listed 5 pretty soon there will not be any to choose from & they stole the ones I would list! HA!

21. What's the one thing on your mind now?

The recent passing of our dear 35 yr old friend, cleaning my apt, my niece's b-day party, whether it is going to rain on Wed when we go to Great America, a very cute guy...well you know I think too much soooooo.

22. Do you know who Ghetto-ass Barbie is?

No...haven't heard of her but I can just imagine. That is probably the only one my niece doesn't have! She has like 50 in her room...none have clothes on! HA! And Ken's head keeps falling off...I wonder if this will explain anything about her personality later in life! HA! NO...I didn't do that to Ken...even in any therapeutic intervention or anything! HA!

23. Do you always wear your seat belt?
 
ABSOLUTELY! I still have things I want to do in my life & you can't control the idiots on the road. Like last night the state troopers were taking care of traffic by the raceway & as I passed I saw one take a beer bottle from a car at the cross intersection & pour it out! I wrote them & thanked them when I got home!
 
24. What cell service do you use? 

T-Mobile for the moment. I'm thinking about getting a Q...anyone have one already? Love to hear your comments.

25. Do you like Sushi?

Just a Shrimp & rice one...I think that still qualifies! :-) One thing off the list of things to do in my life.

26. Have you ever narrowly avoided a fatal accident?


Probably, I had a nasty head injury when I was 14...try to blame my problems with Calc & trig on that but...can I count fatal accident of men I've had the misfortune of caring about...ok, I guess not misfortune I don't regret it & I'd do it again...maybe a bit different in my favor ;-) but I think you know what I mean...just too hard afterwards! Seems fatal!

27. What do you wear to bed? 

I agree with Robin...depends on the time of year. Usually a tank top, sometimes pants, winter the flannel comes out & I do have some "nice things" too. ;-)

28. Been caught stealing?

ABSOLUTELY NOT! But a few  have stolen a piece of my heart. They can have it though. I would have given the whole thing to them. Ugh...

29. What shoe size do you have?

Hey Robin we have the same size 9 or 10... big ones so you not be under them! HA!

30. Do you truly hate anyone?

ABSOLUTELY NOT! My grandma told me never to hate anyone...at times it takes me a few seconds but I do get to the point of having more compassion for them & feeling sorry for them that they are the way they are. I figure God must have his reasons even if I can't figure it out. Maybe to teach me compassion...test me! Hmmm!

31. Classic Rock or Rap?

Well, if I had to choose between these two Classic Rock though I rather something else...some I love.

32. If you could sleep with one famous person, who would it be?  

ONLY ONE??? That is absolutely not fair! Too many to list:

Pierce Brosnan
Tom Selleck
Robert Redford
Jeremy Piven

I think I'd go with Pierce!!!! ;-)

33. Favorite Song?

Michael Buble-Home

OH Robin I totally agree...just hearing it start I'm like Jello! Heck, just reading this did it to me! I LOVE Il Divo too Isabel & then Josh Groban's "You Raise Me Up' & "To Where You Are"...too many that just make every cell in my body tingle! The tingle test...that is what a guy has to do too! HA!

34. Have you ever sang in front of the mirror?

Oh God, probably when I was a kid...wait I put my make-up on & I'm singing...does that count...I'm still a kid right? I do sing & dance all over my place though...even chair dance! Gotta get those hips moving you know...they can really make you feel better! ;-)

35. What food do you find disgusting? 

Well probably anything on the "Fear Factor" would qualify!HA! I can't even watch the commericals!

36. Do you sing in the shower?

Oh ya...crank the tunes & then head in the shower!

37. Did you ever play, “I'll show you mine, if you show me yours?” 

Oh please...I was one of the first girls in my neighborhood to go through puberty at barely age 10! They couldn't believe my C cup at like 11/12 yrs of age was real! HA! One thing I never had to do was stuff my bra! HA! I also was 5' 8" then & so they didn't mess with me much then. Only 1 girl taller than me & all the boys were so short then. Going to a Catholic grammar school we didn't have locker rooms with showers to have that Sixteen Candles scene were the younger girls could VERIFY...isn't that just hysterical! Well, once summer came with bikinis they'd know. Thankfully I was buying bikinis by then...did I tell you the story of when I was a kid & my mom made clothes for us from time to time...good stuff...she made bikinis one year & we got to pick our material. I picked terre cloth...not too bright! HA! Well, apparently my mom & dad didn't think of it either...jumped in & it fell off...could have been a boys highlight of his summer but none were around Ha!

38. Have you ever made fun of your friends behind their back?

HELL NO.. I do it to their face! HA! Of course they do it to me too...in good fun though, not hurtfully. If someone is trying to make me feel like I fool though they are not going to win points with me though!

39. Have you ever stood up for someone you hardly knew?

ALL THE TIME!!!!! I believe it is our job in society to do so! Don't even think about it if I'm around. I think our whole family is like that. My mom does all the time & even my dad. I haven't seen my brothers do it alot..maybe more so with women when I'm not around. My sis & I went to a semi-pro baseball game last month (also went yesterday) & behind us in line are 3 brothers maybe 12, 10 & like 5. The older one was hitting the 2nd one in the head hard constently. My sister saw it before me & told the kid if he didn't stop she would find security. He mouthed off something like "You're not my mother" well that not only got her going but me. I told his brother just wait you may grow up & be taller than him & have a better life than him & know how to treat people better & then have a better life. My sis went for security & they took off. I just wish I found them with their parents but these days you never know the parents may be the reason why they are doing it! UGH! So Sad! I'd love that kid to come to school one day in the fall & find my sister is his teacher! HA!  Or later I'm his college prof! HA!
