Week 31:

If you had your own talk show, who would your first 3 guests be?  (Guests can be dead, alive, famous or someone you just know).

  1. Mary, Queen of Scots
  2. Robin Williams
  3. My maternal grandfather

What can you always be found with?

My cell phone.  I use it as a watch, weather station, alarm & personal phone book.

What is the most fun thing you did in school?

In my senior year, on Day 3 we had a double period in English which was a remedial class.  Since I scored so high on spelling & grammar at the beginning of the year I was allowed to read books during this class.  Sometimes I would write a short summary of the book & other times I gave a verbal book report.  

What’s something you know you do differently than most people?

I was born a left-handed person who was forced to learn to write & act like a right-handed person.  Consequently, I throw & catch a ball differently from most people – I want to throw & catch with my left hand only.  I can eat with either hand as well.  When I fractured my right wrist a few years ago, I was able to start writing with my left hand again very quickly.

Week 32:

Ketchup or mustard?

Depends on what I’m eating.  I only use mustard on smokies or farmer’s sausage.  I use ketchup & mustard on homemade burgers.  I use ketchup on eggs, hash browns & mac & cheese.

If someone made a movie of your life would it be a drama, a comedy, a romantic-comedy, action film or science fiction?

A story of my life would probably be a drama since I was born with spina bifida occultis, a partially clubbed foot, an eye deformity & I had to wear special shoes until I started school, I suffered childhood abuse, by the age of 12 I had had 5 eye operations & 2 tonsillectomies, I was date raped by a boyfriend & a stranger attempted to rape me in my office building.  Despite all this, I have always tried to greet the world with some humor (although not everybody gets my sense of humor).  I try to have an attitude of acceptance – I may have gone through a lot more health problems than the average person (I haven’t even listed adult health difficulties here), but those are the cards I was dealt & feeling sorry for myself won’t change anything except make me feel more miserable.

If you could be given any gift what would it be?

I don’t think anyone would be surprised if the gift I wanted would be good health.

For potlucks or parties do you cook it yourself, buy from a grocery store or pay for catering?

It’s been a while since I attended a potluck, but it was always homemade.  I have some really great recipes that are always requested whenever there is a potluck:  

  1. Turnip & Apple casserole
  2. Spinach salad
  3. Ham & cheese dip

Week 33

Do you believe in ghosts? 

Absolutely!  I believe I have even had contact with ghosts.

Irregardless of your physical fitness, coordination or agility:  If you could play any sport professionally what would it be?  Or if you can’t picture yourself playing sports, what is your favorite sport?

Honestly, I don’t think I would want to play a professional sport.  But I love watching Canadian football & cheer for the Winnipeg team as well as the Edmonton team every week.

Do you prefer long hair or short hair for yourself?

Definitely long.  I like to play with my hair – braiding it, curling it, putting it up in a ponytail or a bun or just piled on top of my head.

If you were on an small island, who would you want to be with? And where is it?  How big is it?

I would want to be somewhere in the Caribbean where they have the gorgeous turquoise water & white sugar sand beaches or somewhere near the Hawaiian Islands where they get the beautiful trade winds.  I would like the island to have lots of trees & beautiful beaches & be large enough for all of my kids to have their own estate for when we want privacy or time away from each other.  It should also be large enough to have a small town where we can go out to eat instead of always eating at home & some entertainment facilities.  There are a few blogging buddies I wouldn’t mind taking with me too, so there needs to be enough room for them too.
