Last Day and more info just for you

Mother Moon gave me the opportunity (see it happened again, I get another opportunity, I love it) to tell you all more about me and then ask more questions of you. If you have already done this one and just want to answer my questions in my comments section, that's cool too. I have Ms. Danni to thank for that smartness move. Go ahead...I double dog dare you.

1. If you could change one thing in your past what would it be? I would have had more hutzpah. I would have stuck up for myself more and not let others decide my path in life......earlier that is. I am a consumate people pleaser, damn it.
2. What would you do if you won the lottery? Depending on the amount....I would make sure my family was taken care of, give money to autism research (we need to find the reason why), take Sweet Man on the vacation of his choosing and not have to worry as much as I do.
3. What was your favorite band when you were a teenager? The Turtles, what else.
4. If you were a car, what kind of car would you be and why? I would be my 66 Austin Healy Sprite, yellow with a black rag top, cuz it was hot, of course now I would have to have it resized in a double XL
5. If you could sit and visit with 3 people who have passed, who would they be and why? My Mom, she took alot of info to the grave with her, Marie Antoinette, what was she thinking and Gandi, how did he stay so motivated?
6. What is your favorite flavor of ice cream? Spumoni....all the rich yummy goodness.
7. Beer, Wine, or Liquor? I am not much of a drinker but I do like Blue Margaritas, Hard Cider and white wine although all at one time.
8. Where would you go to vacation if money were no object? Up into space. Since the Spaceport is not far away from here, I would love to see what the earth looks like from way out there....and of course on to the Moon.
9. What is one thing that make you steaming mad? Mean people. Someone who sees a vulnerability and uses it against the vulnerable one. I could do some serious kick ass on folks like that.
10. Why did you start blogging? I needed a vent. I was going through a life changing situation and needed to be able to say the good, the bad and the truth. So far, so good. Tomorrow is my 1 year anniversary of boring ya'll. Tee hee tiddle ha ha. It has become my therapist.
 
Today is the last day to enter my necklace, mermaid giveaway.....................don't miss out.
 
Now here are my 10 questions for you.
 1. When did you actually feel like a grown up?
2. If you could change anything about yourself what would it be and why?
3. When and where do you feel the most safe?
4. What is your favorite food?
5. Do you have a bad habit? pssst we won't tell
6. If you could have fame, fortune or glory what would it be and why?
7. Where did you grow up? (urban, rural)
8. Why did you start blogging?
9. What is the worst/best part of your job and why? (past or present)
10. If you had a do over in life, what would it be and why?
 
And since I am a curious old soul.......and since I don't know as much about the new folks who have joined my insanity, here's your chance for me and the lovelies to get to know more about you as well.

  2. LOL - why am I laughing? I just got done posting this award that was given to me on my blog and you are named there to answer my questions. You can play if you like but I will understand if you don't. I only have 6 questions (winks)

  3. 1. When did you actually feel like a grown up? - When I had to nurse my Dad through his [terminal] illness and I became the parent.

    2. If you could change anything about yourself what would it be and why? I wish I had more patience with Pooldad. He means well and tries so hard, but we are so close that I tend to take all my frustrations out on him. Poor man.

    3. When and where do you feel the most safe? With Pooldad. Hands down.

    4. What is your favorite food? Corned Beef, Cabbage with potatoes, carrots and pumpernickel bread [whole meal]

    5. Do you have a bad habit? pssst we won't tell - Heehee - I pick at three of my finger nails - 7 of my nails are pretty, manicured and painted, but these three I crud them up and peel them down 'cause I am bored ? nervous ? [sort of like biting my nails I guess]

    6. If you could have fame, fortune or glory what would it be and why? Fortune. There are so many people and causes I want to help that truly need it.

    7. Where did you grow up? (urban, rural) It started out rural but by the time I grew up it was HIGH suburbia.

    8. Why did you start blogging? To keep track [and vent about]of all the lunatic customers Pooldad and I had at the business we ran - it was my first blog and boy there were some funnnnny stories on there. I wish I still had it. Now I blog to keep track of my life and for the friendship it affords me.

    9. What is the worst/best part of your job and why? (past or present)I am a SAHM - so the worst part of my "job" is being alone while they are in school and the boredom that comes with it and the rest? THAT is all the best part :D

    10. If you had a do over in life, what would it be and why? I would've sought Pooldad out and married him first. Without a doubt.

    Hope you don't mind I answered here. Can't wait to read more responses.

    Hope you have a wonderful day. Love ya!

  7. 1. When did you actually feel like a grown up? Sometimes I feel like a responsible adult, when I have to make decisions and pay bills and the like, but I've never felt like a 'grown up'. I still tell people I have no idea what I want to do when I go up.

    2. If you could change anything about yourself what would it be and why?
    I would have stayed in better shape the past few years. Putting the weight on is easy, getting it off.. pooey.

    3. When and where do you feel the most safe?
    In my bed, under the covers. Or in the deep portion of the woods. People

    4. What is your favorite food?
    Potatoes and Pizza. Preferably together.

    5. Do you have a bad habit? pssst we won't tell
    I bite my nails constantly. I've never been able to stop for more than a week or two.

    6. If you could have fame, fortune or glory what would it be and why?
    Fortune, although I know it sounds greedy, I like leading a private attentionless life and fame and glory would undermine that. Plus with fortune, I could get out of debt, finish school, take care of the family, get the cottage of my dreams, focus on my art and spend oodles of time with the lovey. What's not to love about that?

    7. Where did you grow up? (urban, rural)
    The rural portion of northern NJ. My parent's small ranch style house sits on just under and acre of green land dotted with huge oaks and pine trees, surrounded by forest and swamplands. We had a family of bears that lived next door to us, and it was 13 miles to the nearest gas station. I loved it.

    8. Why did you start blogging?
    Honestly, I have no idea. There wasn't a set reason to do so, one day I just started and I've been here since.

    9. What is the worst/best part of your job and why? (past or present)
    Well, I only began my current job a few weeks ago and hands down the worst things about my job are my schedule (I don't know when part time became 30-40 hours a week) and the fact that people get so rude and so very bent out of shape over something like coffee. It's such a minute thing to get angry about and belittle someone over.

    The best part are my coworkers. They're all awesome.

    10. If you had a do over in life, what would it be and why? I would have been kinder to myself growing up and not let the slings and arrows of tauntings from asshats get under my skin as much as they did. I'm still recovering from that and it's been 9 years since high school.

  10. Sorry it took me so long...here are my answers!
    1. When did you actually feel like a grown up? : Not that I always do feel like a grown-up, but I suppose it’d be when I had kids of my own. Putting their needs and wants before my own was a sure indicator ;).


    2. If you could change anything about yourself what would it be and why? : I’m way too sensitive. I would like to be able to “let things go” more easily.


    3. When and where do you feel the most safe? : In my home, with my whole family there…anytime.


    4. What is your favorite food?: Seriously!? That’s like asking me which of my children is my favorite. Come visit me if you don’t believe it ; )


    5. Do you have a bad habit? pssst we won't tell: I’m sure I do, but I can’t think of it off hand. Sorry, boring.


    6. If you could have fame, fortune or glory what would it be and why? : Fortune…it’d be nice not to have to worry about finances constantly.


    7. Where did you grow up? (urban, rural) : A little of both…we moved a lot.


    8. Why did you start blogging? : To get my creative juices flowing…and put them to good use =)


    9. What is the worst/best part of your job and why? (past or present) : Making people happy…their smiles, their bellies and their souls. Food is a definite means of instant gratification.


    10. If you had a do over in life, what would it be and why?: I would have applied myself better the first time around at college…which would justify the whopper student loans I’m still paying off.

    = ) Heather
