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.

Been anywhere recently for the first time?

No, we pretty much never go anywhere. We go to the same old restaurants to eat, the same old grocery store to buy food, and a couple of other places to buy pet food, and to buy jigsaw puzzles. That’s it. Very boring.

List three favorite book characters.

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

What is your favorite non alcololic drink: hot or cold?

Home brewed, sweet iced tea

Home brewed, coffee with cream or French Vanilla Coffee Creamer

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! 🙂

Time for a new set of questions from Cee, and answers from me! 🙂

What is your favorite color of hair? You can name your hair color or a color that you just like.

Black. I’ve had my hair dyed black for a long time. Before black, I had it red or auburn for years, too.

List at least 5 things that you are good at.

  • writing
  • listening
  • communicating with animals
  • art
  • intuition

What is your favorite animal or type of animal? (pets, dolphins, stuffed, wild cats, etc)

Cats & dogs, but I like all animals. Over the years, besides cats & dogs, we’ve had gerbils, parakeets, a rabbit, and a box turtle named Herbie.

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.

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.

What did you or did not like about the first place you lived without your parents?

The first place I lived without my parents was when my husband and I moved to Lawton, Oklahoma. He was in the Army, stationed at Ft. Sill, and had just come back from Viet Nam. We rented a place with one bedroom, in one half of a duplex house. At the time the rent was $65 a month, and we could barely afford it. I liked it just fine, as we were on our own, and we had great neighbors, who were also in the Army. We several wives didn’t work outside the home, so we just had fun all day. We’d play cards, board games, and watch TV together.

What is your most favorite smell/scent?

So many scents that I like, it’s hard to name them all! Here’s a few, though…

  • fresh baked bread
  • new mowed grass
  • wood smoke
  • cinnamon
  • Angel perfume
  • Petrichor (the scent of rain falling on dry land)

Would you prefer snowy winters, or not, and why?

I would prefer to never have snow. Oh, I know it’s pretty for a little bit, and gives us all something to talk about, but it’s just too cold. We don’t get very much here, though, and it’s usually gone the next day or so, but still. It’s dangerous for people to drive in the ice and snow, especially when we’re not used to it. We’ve had a few little flakes of snow this year, and people act like it’s the end of the world. People go to the store and clear out the shelves of provisions, and there are so many car wrecks, over 200 this last time. I don’t like winter. We’re warm/hot weather people. When it gets below 70 we’re shivering!

How do you like your eggs?

I like eggs fixed all kinds of ways. I think we had this question before. Let’s see..I like them scrambled, fried, deviled, boiled, poached, and made into omelettes. That pretty much covers it. I wouldn’t have one raw, though.

Have you ever met anyone famous?

Yes, we met Kinky Friedman, who was running for governor of Texas. He was making a speech at a book store, and also signing his books. We met for a few minutes, took pictures, and had a short conversation. I’ve also met several other authors at book signings. To me they are famous!

There are a few local celebrities I’ve met, such as mayors, and TV news anchors.

Can I say I’ve met my daughter? She was an extra in a movie!

I’ve also met Natalie Maines, of the Dixie Chicks. Actually, we’ve personally known her extended family for many years. A wonderful family, each and every one.

What was the first thing you bought with your own money?

I probably bought candy. We had a little mom & pop store at the end of our street, so all the neighborhood kids would go down there to buy penny candy. Then, my cousin and I got industrious and created a little business to earn money. We’d buy bars of soap to decorate and sell. We did pretty good, too. Later on, when I had a real job with a paycheck, I bought a purse/handbag made of leather. I still have it, too. Here’s a photo of it!

Are you a practical jokester?

No, I don’t think so. Can’t remember if I ever played a joke of that kind on anyone. I don’t see the humor in these, as it makes the ‘victim’ be embarrassed.

Who cuts your hair?  You, a friend, or professional.

I trim my bangs myself, otherwise I don’t cut it at all. I used to go to the beauty shops once in awhile, but most times they ruined it, so I quit going.

Did you have a stuffed animal when you were a kid, if so what kind?

I had tons of stuffed animals, and they all had names. I’d make them do funny tricks, like turning flips. There were so many they took up most all of the bed. I still have one my my favorites, a little white floppy dog, I named Softie. I wrote a story about this one. Maybe I’ll post it here someday.
