It’s time for another set of questions from Cee, and answers from me! Click the above link to join in the fun.

***

Questions:

If you could have an endless supply of any food, what would you get?

List at least five movies or books that cheer you up.

If you were a mouse in your house in the evening, what would you see your family doing? 

Answers:

  • I’m hoping we can have all other kinds of foods, too, and just never run out of the one particular one? In that case, let me see…I’ll pick sweet things. What? You say that’s too vague? Okay then, chocolate of any kind, pastries like donuts, and candy.
  • 5 movies or books that are cheerful? Ummm. I like scary movies, and they aren’t usually cheerful. But let me think… Any movie with a great sound-track, best if it is rock music. Here’s a few I’ve enjoyed, and watched more than once.
  • That Thing You Do, Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, The long, Long Trailer, Blast From the Past, Empire Records
  •   (Books…well, you know I love books. Just take a look at my A to Z posts this year to see what kinds I read)
  • A mouse in our house would take one look, and skeddadle ASAP. Cricket would be after him. But, if he had time to look around he’d see me at the computer, desk, because I’m always here, and the mister would be on the couch watching TV. Cricket is usually napping on the little couch, on her cat tree ledge, or the kitchen chair.

List things or events that changed your life?

I’d say getting married, and having kids and grand-kids. Also, having had the opportunity to travel and live in other countries, has shown me that there are really wonderful people all over the world.

Complete this sentence: Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No it’s…

A UFO!

What genre of music do you like?

I like all music. I could name every kind there is, and I could find something to like about them, even if it’s just one song or two. That said, I listen to Rock most of all.

Ghost, from the book, “Lost Souls”, by Poppy Z. Brite

Becky Bloomwood, from the book series, “Confessions of a Shopaholic”, by Sophie Kinsella

Number 4 – aka John Smith, from the book “I Am Number Four”, by Pittacus Lore

3 things about myself:

  1. This is the second time I’ve received a nomination for this award. I accept again, because the questions are different each time, and I like to answer questions, and I like awards.
  2. My name was sent to the planet Mars. I entered a Haiku contest for NASA, and all participants were to have their name encoded on a CD that was sent to Mars. My poem didn’t win, but I got an official certificate saying my name would be entered on the CD.
  3. I like feeding and watching birds, and once took part in “Project Feeder Watch”, from Cornell University. We were to keep track of how many, and what types of birds came to our feeder in a set amount of weeks in the winter. Then, we sent in our charts to be recorded.

***

My 5 questions to answer:

1. When was the last time you felt pure joy?

…Anytime I get to have playtime and conversations with my grandchildren.

2. What made you laugh until you cried?

…I laugh until I cry almost every day about something or other. The most recent was when I mistook a plumbing/sewer company truck for a mobile food truck with Mr. Potato as the logo.

3. What’s the silliest thing you do when alone?

…Talk and sing to my cat, Cricket.

4. Whats the weirdest thing you’ve ever experienced?

…I’ve experienced lots of weird things. Here’s just one of them … Being teleported to another part of town in an instant. I guess that’s what happened. My daughter and I went to a yard sale, then as we left, we found ourselves in a completely different place. It didn’t feel weird, but we knew something had happened to put us in a whole other part of town, in the blink of an eye.

5. Have you ever been to a haunted place?

…Yes. My house, and quite a few houses I’ve lived in. I have paranormal experiences quite often, wherever I am.

***

Put a link to a favorite post. Well, all my posts are my favorites, so how do I choose? I’ll leave it up to you. Pick something from my category list, and if you like what you read, you can let me know. 🙂

***

I don’t usually make any nominations, because blogging takes a lot of work and time, so I believe all bloggers deserve recognition. So, if any of you would like to grab the badge, and take part, feel free to do so.

***

Thanks again, Laura! This was fun. 🙂

What was or is your favorite cartoon?

If you mean TV cartoons, my favorites from years ago was, “Mighty Mouse”, and “Top Cat”. I used to watch every cartoon I could find, which included regular after school cartoons like “Popeye”, “Quick Draw McGraw”, and “The Flintstones”, among many more. the “Looney Tunes” cartoons were favorites, too.

Which cooking utensil (other than the usual pots and pans etc) would you miss the most?

Name something other than pots and pans…well that would be the main things to use, so something else…

Spatula, and big spoon? Potato Masher? I’m sure I could manage without them, and find something else to use, but I would miss having these.

Would you dare to sleep in haunted house overnight?

Well, if you know anything about me, you’d know I’d jump at the chance to sleep in a spooky old haunted house.

I mean, I live in one right now, and most of the houses I’ve lived in has had some element of the paranormal, but they never were spooky.

I doubt I’d actually go to sleep in the spooky one, though. I’d be too busy looking and listening for ghosts! What fun! 🙂

  1. I am the _________________ in my family.
  2. I have __________________ sibling(s).
  3. I am looking forward to _____ this Spring.
  4. The first sign of Spring this year was _____.
***
  1. I am the keeper of the ‘stuff’. Somehow I manage to inherit everything from everybody, to keep. I have things from both sets of grand-parents, aunts & uncles, mother & father, and my girls. It’s all here, stored in the garage & closets. There are cards, letters, photos, knick-knacks, and more, from as far back as WWII, and even before. Some even might be valuable, I don’t know.
  2. I have one younger sister.
  3. I’m glad spring is here, even though we’ve had a very mild winter. A few below freezing days, but not bad at all.
  4. The first sign of spring here, I guess was the flowering trees with their pretty white or pink blossoms. Also, the warmer temps, as today will be in the 90s.

It’s time for another set of questions from Cee, and answers from me. See above link for joining in instructions, and also to see other entries. It’s fun!

What is your earliest memory?

Out of Body Experience (OBE). Yes, really. I’d be lying there in my baby crib, and this weird feeling would come. I could always tell when it was about to happen. I could feel myself sort of separating, then I’d be above the crib, looking down at myself.

Then, a couple of other memories of when I was about 5. Being in the hospital having my tonsils taken out. Having the ether mask over my face, and the awful smell, and the Dr. saying to count backwards.

The other, is when my baby sister was brought home for the first time. I think I might have had a cold or something, so couldn’t get near, so had to sit out in the hallway, just looking at her and my mom in the bedroom.

Which way does the toilet paper roll go? Over or under?

Over if it’s on the holder. Neither, if it’s just sitting there. When I drop the roll in the floor though, it rolls to the east, because there’s no room for it to roll west, as the tub is that way.

What makes you feel grounded?

I never got grounded when I was a kid/teen. Not real sure what this question means. I’ve felt grounded when I’ve been up in an airplane, then we land back on the ground. It’s more fun taking off up into the air, though.

Why not join in the weekly fun! Click above link to see details!

***

If a distant uncle dies and you were always his favorite and leaves you $50,000 (any currency) in his will, what would you do?

Well, $50,000 would go a long way to paying off some bills. That would be great. Then, I’d probably put back a lot in savings, and blow the rest on fun things that are completely unnecessary. As long as we’re just dreaming about this extra money, how about…

  • I’d hire a professional organizer to help me go through everything, as it’s pretty impossible for me to do this
  • A chef to fix our meals, so we wouldn’t have to think of something to eat. We’re bored with it all, so meals already prepared would be nice

What sound or sounds do you love?

There are lots of great sounds!

  • rain – soft, dribbling, splashing
  • rain – with thunder crashing, pouring buckets of rain
  • wind – gusty, blustery, howling, making whistling noises through the windows
  • my grandchildren’s talking and laughing
  • my cat’s meowing
  • fall leaves rustling & skittering around
  • all kinds of music
  • Birds – tweeting, each in their own special voices

What’s your middle name?  Why?

Jean, and I don’t know why my parents chose this name. I’m not named after anyone.
