What, Where How?

Hello... welcome. Time for Tuesday 4...are you joining in?

What.. Where...How?

 Hey, it's time for Tuesday 4 and I am so happy to see you back again.    

Let's ask ourselves some questions.

1. What was the worst date you ever went on?

I had several and each was a blind date as a favor to a friend whose boyfriend's friend couldn't get a date.  That's a huge red flag. If a guy can't get a date stay away from him. There is  probably a good reason!

2. How was the nicest date you ever had?

Well it wasn't with a guy.  It was with my daughter.. a trip to the city for the opera, a play and ab upgraded stay in a gorgeous suite at the Plaza Hotel.   Dates with boys were rarely anything big or memorable but they were fun and it was nice to be with them. We did simple things and generally had a nice time.

3. Where did you grow up and how did you like it? Are you far away from there now?

I grew up right outside New York City and close to the port of Elizabeth NJ, one of the busiest ports in the USA.      Yes, I liked it very much.   It was a small town and very nice.   I live 63 miles south of that little town now.   Of all kinds of living I like small towns the best.

4.  What did kids do for fun and dates when you were young?     There were movies, hamburger joints, CYO dances, ice skating, sledding.  In summer there was the shore and lakes and the mountains.  Going into NYC to mess around was cool as well. 

Monday Begins

onday came very early for me as I awoke at 4:30 AM. It is pitch black out
 but men in the neighborhood are already heading out to work.   
Tomorrow we are promised some snow but here by the water it does not snow easily. When it does, however, we get snow measured in the feet rather than inches. Rare though.

Just a reminder that Tuesday 4 is available if you would like to join in.   Come and check it
out.   It gives you a topic to blog about at least and you get to find other blogs to read if that interests you.   I hope it does.   If you have ideas or topics you'd like to see for Tuesday 4, let me know in comments here or there.   I could always use the help.
I hope your Monday is wonderful and gets your week off to a glorious start.

Sunday Stealing

Sunday Stealing from Bev! Always a lot of fun to do.

My internet was out until just an hour ago.. all night long from early evening yesterday so I am late with this.

1. when did you last sing to yourself
2. if you’re male, would you ever rock black nail polish? if you’re female, would you ever rock really really short hair?
Nope.  Don't like short hair at all  …. for me that is. You do YOU..  I don't judge what others wanna do.
well... actually I do judge from a Judeo/Christian point of view as to right and wrong.

3. what is the greatest accomplishment of your life?
I guess my children... I have 5 of them.    

4. what is the first happy memory that comes to mind, recent or otherwise?
 I don't know off hand but it would involve the seashore I am sure, some music as well. 

5. if you knew that in one year you would die suddenly, would you change anything about the way you are now living?
    No, I would change nothing and I think most would say they would but wouldn't in reality.

6. do you have a bucket list? if so, what are the top three things?   I have one home depot bucket that is very useful I don't need anymore.
 Well but actually no,  I don't find wishful thinking useful. 

7. how do you feel about tattoos and piercings? 
Too many seem to indicate a problem with self image or maybe self mutilation but people do what they do and it's ultimately their business.  They've been a hallmark of declining civilization for thousands of years though. Certainly a mark of societies that are godless.  Now look people.. I am not talking about a couple of tattoos or piercings so don't go nuts here over this.

8. do you feel you had a happy childhood?
  I was largely ignorant of things and that leads to happiness. Ignorance is bliss, but I was happy go lucky as a little girl.

8. when did you last cry in front of another person?
Very rare.. VERY.   Maybe once at the emergency vet.  As my doctor says, I am stoic and find crying in front of people inappropriate.

9. who in the world would you most like to receive a letter from and what would you want it to say?
No one I can think of "in this world".
10. what is your night time routine?
Wash, brush teeth, drink water, say prayers... zzzzz

11. when was your last 3am conversation with someone, and who were they to you?
My dear friend in Texas

12. if you were about to die, and you could only say one more sentence to one person, what would
you say and to whom?
Probably... ARGHHH..

13. what is your opinion on brown eyes?
 No real opinion.  Most of the world has them. Mine are green. My father had brown eyes as did my sister and brother.  The rest of us had green or pale gray eyes.  

14. pick a quote and describe what it means to you personally.
 "Women live lives of continual apology. They are born and raised to take the blame for other people's behavior. If they are treated without respect, they tell themselves that they have failed to earn respect. If their husbands do not fancy them, it is because they are unattractive."  Germaine Greer
  Germaine often hits the nail on the head.  Misogyny is a part of human life since   Adam threw Eve under the bus.
 And this one:  "Anti-religious sneers are a hallmark of perpetual adolescents." Camille Paglia   Yes Camille they sure are.

15. what would you title the autobiography of your life so far?
I would not write one let alone title it.
