Bunches and bunches of questions answered

So, yeah, nothing much has been happening around Kat's house lately, hence no entries. HDiTty still hasn't transferred over the vacation photos to the home computer yet and as mentioned I really don't want to use the laptop. One of these months it'll get done.
So since I don't have anything really to write about I did another search for ideas. The following questions come courtesy of
Warwick Blogs.

What would you have on your headstone? I think I'd stick with the basics: My name, birth and death dates. It'd be up to HDiTty if he'd want anything else. But then, it'd be up to him if I'm buried anyway since my wish is to be cremated.

What's your dream car? I really don't have one. But the first image that popped into my head was a Hummer. The original not the 2 or 3.

Is pornography morally wrong? I don't think so. I know there are some girls and even boys that get into it in ways that shouldn't be. But for the most part they join on their own, they're not forced into it. And no one has to look at it if they don't want to. And so on and so forth.

If you had a big win in the lottery, how long would you wait to tell people? Long enough to get a lawyer involved and certain things worked out. As far as work goes, I might tell right away because I'd be quitting the very next day.

Do you carry a donor card? Sort of, it's on my Driver's License

Why (or why not)? Because I believe people should get whatever is able to be salvaged from my body that can be. Especially since it's going to be burned up anyway.

Where would you like to retire? In a log cabin, on a mountain in the woods, on our own private huge pond/small lake. If it can't be on a mountain, fine as long as everything else is there.

What is something you wish you were better at doing? Drawing

What colour do you prefer your pens to write? Black

Are babies cute? Yes, for the most part.

Do you subscribe to a magazine? Yes, 3 of them

If so, what? Entertainment Weekly, Midwest Living and Cottage Living

What was the last thing you used a microwave for? Campbell's soup for lunch today

What book are you reading? the 3rd book in the Twilight series, sorry can't remember the name. That tells you how long it's been since I picked it up doesn't it?

Do you like rollercoasters? Yes, love them.

Cite a song lyric that means something to you: "Hey baby, you got the love I need" from Over the Hills and Far Away - Led Zeppelin

What's the oldest thing you own? A China cabinet. It was in the house that my mom and dad bought going on 45 years ago now. We have no idea how old it is.

What's your favourite word? I'm liking serenity lately. I don't use it at all, but I like the sound.

What word(s) do you hate? Hmmm, I can't think of any except for the incorrect word of irregardless. But since that's not a real word I don't know if that counts.

Who would you have liked to be? I still think I would've like to have been an English teacher. Although my grammar isn't always the best nowadays, it used to be really good. Have no idea what happened there. Heh Or maybe an editor of fiction books.

What historical figure(s) do you most despise? Well Hitler comes to mind pretty damn quick.

What natural gift would you most like to possess? The gift to draw like Brother #2 can

How would you like to die? Asleep in my bed. Like, I think, most people I'd like to go to sleep and not wake up.

Why do you blog? Since, for the most part, my blog is more like a journal than not I blog to keep some kind of diary of my life.

Name one web site you'd recommend to others. Bitchypoo (it's over on the list, go check out the funny)

Whose thoughts would you most like to read? Of people I know personally I'd have to say it's a toss up between my mom and HD. Of people I don't know (i.e. celebrity) it's a toss up of Brad Pitt and Stephen King

What have you lost that you'd most like to retrieve? Well, I didn't lose them, my mother did. I'd like to retrieve her wedding ring set from when she was married to my father.

What's your favourite red thing? Does my Rendezvous count? It's more Burgundy than truly red. If not, I don't really have anything other than clothing and none of those I'd consider a favourite.

What are some things that make you nervous? Cars pulling out in front of me from a parking lot when there aren't any cars behind me. Not only does it anger me it makes me nervous as all get out since I've dreamed 3 times that that's how I'm going to die.

What's the best tasting food you've ever eaten? A fillet Mignon at a restaurant that no longer exists in Baton Rouge, LA. It was a place called Joey's and every bite just melted in my mouth. I had it on prom night 20 years ago. That's how good it was, I can still remember it to this day and my mouth is watering as I write this. Otherwise, as far as type of food, I'd have to say crawfish etoufee from just about any place in New Orleans, LA.

What's your favourite boy's name? Joseph, followed very closely by Joshua
Girl's name? Aurora - although I don't ever play online role playing games, HD does. And every time he starts a new game we create a character for me using this name. We usually end up having to add an "H" to it at the end though because someone has already gotten the correct spelling.

Where will you be in five year's time? I'd love to not be working in 5 years, at least not employed in something like I'm doing now. But I suppose as far as living goes, I'll still be in the same house I am now.

What one thing would you most like to accomplish with your life? Serenity!

What's your favourite scary movie? The Sixth Sense because it's just an awesome movie.
The movie that freaks me out though, that would be Ghost Story

Who's funnier, Jim Carrey or Bill Murray? Bill Murray, hands down.

What's the furthest place you've ever travelled to? I think that would be San Francisco, CA

Name a book you'd recommend to a friend. Swan Song
Why? I think I've written about this book enough. Just go get it dagnabit!

What's your favourite cartoon? Does The Little Drummer Boy and How the Grinch Stole Christmas and all the Charlie Brown specials count? If not and we're talking true cartoons, as in Saturday morning/after school I'd have to say Tom and Jerry.
Why? Because they're just damn funny, the older ones that is.

Name something about yourself that people don't expect. I can be very, very bitchy at times. Just ask HD.

If you won $5 million, how would you spend it? Get out of any debt of course, first and foremost. Then we'd be going on our dream vacation with a little more time added in I do believe. From there I'm not sure, I know we'd help out family though.

What's your favourite time of day? Dusk
Why? It's prettiest. If this includes night time though, I'd have say any time that it's dark and I can see the stars.

Witness to History

I voted, did you?

It doesn't matter who I or you voted for, just matters that we did. I stayed up to watch the results with Mr. Dan Rather. Also wanted to watch the speeches. Both were very good. McCain was a gracious loser and Obama was a gracious winner. Now let's see how things will go.

Either way it would've gone History would've been made. What a time we live in.
