Saturday 9

1. What celebrity do you think is the MOST foolish? It is kinda hard for me to judge that since I don't personally know any celebrity's and I know things in the media get blown out of proportion. But I will say after watching several shows of Jon and Kate plus 8, Dancing with the Stars 2010 (which totally turned me off from that season) and Sarah Palin's Alaska -the episode with Kate Gosselin, that she (Kate Gosselin) has definitely not done anything to promote her image in a good way. The earlier episodes of Jon and Kate plus 8 were endearing, the latter ones, not so much. I know they both made mistakes in the marriage-- that's not what I take issue with. It's just that she seems so ungrateful and spoiled now-- not the great home mom of 8 kids she first started out to be. Not that I condone Jon and his actions, but at least he does try to keep out of the media.

2. What are 5 things you don't care about? Facebook, what kind of car I drive- as long as it runs and has heat and air, the Emmy's, the Oscar's, and the SAG awards, and sports, oh, wait...that's 6, sorry.

3. What 'issue' do you think your opinion is so right about that you end up trying to sway others to your point of view? Probably the nutrition issue, I think we have been dumbed down in believing what is good for us and what is not. Not that I know everything, I am still learning so much. But I feel pretty passionate about that.

4. What personality do you like to listen to on the radio? I don't. I don't like to listen to anyone talk on the radio too much. If I'm listening to the radio I listen to Intentional Living, but I don't particularly like listening to "talk" radio. I want to hear good Christian music when I listen to the radio.

5. What culture are you facinated by? For the last several years, my oldest daughter and I have been facinated with the Irish culture. I have a natural facination with all cultures, anything that is different from what I've known and why. Particularly Irish though since I know we family roots there.

6. You are alone with your lover's diary. What do you do? psssh,, he won't even read a book let alone write a diary -- are you kidding me?

7. What frustrates you? Mostly, myself.

8. Do you remember the first time you were on the internet? What did you do first? I can barely remember yesterday, anything before that I can not be held accountable for.

9. What was the biggest fight you have ever had with someone? This blog has a policy of no mooning. Those things are over and done with, don't dwell on the past.

Saturday 9

In an effort to get myself to blogging a bit more, I've signed up with Saturday 9. Now I know today is not Saturday, and I will probably be late again in the future. But hey, it's a start. Here are the 9 questions from this past Saturday.

1. Have you ever been to Japan? If not would you like to travel there? As a matter of fact, I have. I was born in Tokyo, Japan~~don't get too thrilled for me, I was born there. My father was in service over seas. I would like to travel back there, the sites I've seen on slides my mother and father took while there were there are phenomenal.

2. Have you ever played a game that required the removal of clothing? I am sad to say, yes. I was a small child though, 8 years old to be exact, and did not fully understand what was happening until it was too late and the shame of it stayed with me for most of my life.

3. Have you ever dated one of your best friends? Yes! And I married him too!

4. Have you ever kissed someone you didn't know? No, I have not.

5. What is your secret guaranteed weeping movie? I must say it is a tie between "Finding Never Land" and "Fried Green Tomatoes" and "Pride and Prejudice".

6. What feature are you most insecure about? Well, frankly, pretty much all of them. I guess my biggest peeve would be my inner thighs, they have been pudgy my whole life and I've never liked it. Now I am just pudgy all over, so I guess it matches now-- lol.

7. What do you miss most about being young? Who said I was old???? I want names, 41 is not old!!

8. Who is the most annoying musical artist ever? Okay, so I'm not a huge music buff, I'm sorry, I just can't stand for lyrics to play over and over in my head, but again, I would have to say the guy who sings "Feelings", the Beatles for the song "Michelle, My Belle" (yes, I know I was named for that song, and I hate it), and who ever wrote "This is the Song that Never Ends".

9. Have you ever applied for a job that was an internet hoax, asking for credit history and social security number? Well....kinda. I didn't give out credit history or social security number, but I did get taken for $60 that I didn't have to spare.
