I woke up this morning and grumbled “Shitfuckdamn yo! I forgot to do a post for today!” So I scurried over to Patrick’s Place to hook myself up with some questions….away we go!

1. What is more important to you: your relationship with yourself or your relationship with those who are close to you? My relationship with myself. If I am not happy and content with myself, I am no good to others.

2. Which of the above do you tend to have the least problem cultivating? My relationships with others. I have a very hard time getting along with myself sometimes.

3. Something goes wrong in your life. Of the people you are most likely to turn to, are they the same gender as you or the opposite? Husband – so opposite, but then I  need my girlfriends to rally around me when I rant and rave, bitch and moan. If I had a fainting couch, they would get to watch me fling myself onto it every once in a while. Must look into purchasing one……

4. Something goes wrong in a close friend’s life and you’re the person that friend chooses to call first. Is that person likely to be the same gender as you or the opposite? The same gender. Most of me guy friends these days are my girlfriend’s husbands.

5. Take the quiz: What Makes You a Good Friend?

You Are a Good Friend Because You’re Honest

Like it or not, your friends are going to hear the truth from you.
You know that the truth hurts, but living a life of lies is much worse. 

So while you’re definitely kind and supportive, you don’t pull any punches with your friends.
Everyone knows where they stand with you. And what you like and dislike about them.

While some may be initially turned off by your honesty, your friends have come to consider it a virtue.
After all, in world of white lies and deceptive politeness, you can be counted on for honesty and integrity.

Your friends need you most when: They need good advice or an intelligent opinion

You really can’t be friends with: Needy, emotional people

Your friendship quote: “True friendship can afford true knowledge. It does not depend on darkness and ignorance.”


6. What single trait listed in the response to question #5 would your closest friend most agree with? Hmm….you’d have to ask her. CajunVegan?

Thank God for Sunday Stealing because without them there would be tumbleweeds blowing across the screen right now. So without further ado, I give you the Sassy Meme!

1. If you could say anything you wanted to say to George Bush, what would you say? Goodbye, good riddance, don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out. Buh-bye!

2. If you had to be the mother of Britney Spears or Lindsay Lohan, who would you choose and why? Put on a pair of panties, cross your legs and stay home for one night!

3. You get to be Queen for a day. The kids are all taken care of, and you can spend as much money as you want. What do you do all day? I would go get a manicure, pedicure, facial and massage. Then I would spend some time lounging by the pool with a good book before heading to dinner with Digital Rob and a group of friends.

4. Is there a song that brings tears to your eyes every time you hear it? If so, which one? Yes. The Impossible by Joe Nichols

I Hope you Dance by LeeAnn Womack, Blessed by Elton John, Baby Mine – the Bette Midler version from Beaches – and a few others. I am a huge crybaby sometimes.

5. A fairy taps you on the shoulder and tells you that you can either have a perfect face or a perfect body for the rest of your life. Which do you choose? Perfect face. Body imperfections can be hidden with the right clothes.

6. If you could live any place in the world and money was no object, where would you live and why? San Diego. I love the atmosphere, the climate, everything about the city. Ooh, or I might go to Cairo and spend the rest of my life exploring.

7. What is your biggest regret in life? No regrets, only lessons learned.

8. If you could go back and visit one person in your life who is now dead, and ask one question, what would that question be and why would you ask it? My Dad. I would ask why and he would know what I meant.

9. If you had the choice to age forward (like we are now) or aging backwards (think Benjamin Buttons) which would you choose and why? Forward. Life is a journey – one best travelled in a forward motion.

10. What will the epitaph on your headstone say? She lived, she loved.

Three days into Blog365 and I have zip, zero, nada inspiration for today. While trolling around the interwebs, I came across this little doozy on Crystal’s site and stole it for my own! She borrowed it from Patrick’s Place and now I am using it too!  

The Saturday Six!

1. Have you ever been asked to speak in front of an audience? If so, what was the occasion and how do you feel you did? Yes. This is a trick I perform on a regular basis for work.  Outside of work, I have spoken in public a few times and must say my background in drama reeeeeaaaalllly helps! I can build a fourth wall in a hot second! I have mastered the art of making non-eye contact with audience members and projecting my voice comes very easily.  I don’t like to speak in public, but will do it when necessary.

2. If you were asked to appear on David Letterman’s show, do you have a “Stupid Human Trick” you could perform? I can say the alphabet backwards, list all 50 states in alphabetical order and pick up a number of small items with my toes and place them on the counter without using my hands.

3. If you were asked to be in a circus, would you be more comfortable as a clown, a trapeze artist, a tightrope walker, a juggler, an animal trainer, or the ringmaster? Ooohhhh…I would love to be a trapeze artist or an animal trainer!  

4. Take the quiz: What Circus Act Should You Perform?      I did and this is me….

You Should Walk on Stilts

Your biggest talent is your ability to make people laugh.
And like most comedians, you’ll do anything to get a people roaring. 

You know how to work a crowd. You are witty, but you are also great at physical comedy.
But you’ll leave the daredevil stunts to other people… you don’t need them to get your applause.


5. How old were you the first time you visited a circus? How did you like it? I was six or seven the first time we went to Ringling Bros. Barnum and Bailey Circus. I loved it! – except for the creepy clowns.  I remember wanted to be adopted into Gunther Gabel Williams family so I could train the tigers! 

6. How often would you describe your real job as a “circus?” Do you think it seems to be getting more or less like a circus? Every.fucking.day. As the economy continues it’s roller coaster ride and companies continue to merge, it just gets more and more like the sideshow tent at a traveling circus.
