I got this from Pink Ninjabi & thought it was so interesting I would do the challenge myself.  I will probably do half today & half tomorrow instead of all in one go like she did, especially since some of them have to do with music & as I’ll explain below, I don’t spend a lot of time listening to music anymore.

  1. Five ways to win your heart – Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate, chocolate & flowers.
  2. Something you feel strongly about – Women’s Rights!  I am part of the generation who grew up during the fight for these rights & even though I was usually too young to participate, I was very impressed with the women who were in the thick of it.  I remember women burning their bras & the marches, when birth control became common place, the fight for equal pay & all the rest of it.
  3. A book you love – Anything written by Stephen King or Gone With the Wind.
  4. Bullet your whole day – Get up; perform daily ablutions; make & drink a cup of coffee; check blog & make replies; check Facebook games; make dinner & eat; watch some TV; go back to blog & check replies; finish off Facebook games for the day; go to bed about 2:30 a.m.; repeat.  If I were still working I would go to work & come back & only check blog once a day & Facebook games once a day.  Exciting, huh?
  5. Things you want to say to an ex – “If you would only get your head out of the bottle for a little while, we might have had a better chance.”
  6. Your views on mainstream music – I prefer music from the 60’s, 70’s & 80’s more. I do like some of the current artists, but not too many.
  7. Five pet peeves – People who lie; People who abuse their positions; People who hold grudges; People who like to get “even”; People who feel powerful when they put other people down.
  8. What you ate today – So far a cup of coffee & a cinnamon raisin bagel.  Plan chicken & rice for dinner.
  9. How important you think education is – Very!  I think it’s very sad that children do not learn how to spell or write anymore, that schools have no money for music & art programs.
  10. Put your music player on shuffle & write the first 10 songs that play – sorry, I don’t listen to music so I have no music in my player.
  11. Your family – My parents are still alive & living in Winnipeg; I have 1 sister who lives in Winnipeg, she is divorced & has 3 boys; I am married for the 2nd time, I have one biological daughter, six stepchildren & three children of my heart, all of whom live in Winnipeg.
  12. Five guys you find attractive – Cary Grant, Matthew Modine, Hugh Grant, Sean Connery, Samuel L. Jackson.
  13. Your opinions about your body & how comfortable you are with it – I am not happy with the weight I have gained since I quit smoking.
  14. What you wore today – Not working, so I wore a house dress all day
  15. Your Zodiac/horoscope & if you think it fits you – I am a Sagittarius, I hate routine, I am creative, artistic & spontaneous.  My sign fits me perfectly.

How about you?  Will you take the challenge?  I would love to read your responses so please link back to me if you decide to take up the challenge.
