SATURDAY 9 meme: How's it Gonna Be

Saturday 9: How's It Gonna Be

1. How's it gonna be in 2011 for you?
I hope things go smoother. I just got audited by the IRS and owe over $2K! AAAARRRGH! Not a great ending to this year.

2. What is your idea of a perfect romantic evening?
Any time spent with Bud.

3. What strategy would you implement to deal with drug abuse in today's world?
Tell doctors to lighten up on prescriptions.

4. What thing about your family are you least proud of?
The history, the disfunction, the characters...let me count the ways, but the racism on my father's side beats all of my family shame.

5. What part of the holidays are you really looking forward to?
The journey through them.

6. Who is the last person you high-fived? Why?
A co-worker. Got the computer's back online.

7. Have you ever made out at a drive-in?
Of course. Who hasn't?!

8. If you had only enough energy left in you for one last smile, who would you give it to?

9. Tell us about that time when you were the “life of the party”.
Kinda embarassing now, but in 1977 on New Year's Eve at a crowded disco called RHANNA PIPPINS in Groton, CT, I went around the room and kissed EVERY man in the club at midnight. There must have been 500 people there. The guys found it amusing and all cooperated at the time, if memory serves...I'm not proud of myself for that and certainly did not make points with the angry women who were there. I have no friends from that time period of my life, which shows how shallow and stupid I was back then.


  1. #1 Good luck with the IRS, my parents had a run-in with them a while back. It was the IRS mistake and they wanted my parents to pay.

    #4 I remember many heated arguments with my father back in the '60s over Civil Riggts.

  2. You think anyone remembers that night in 77?
    Bud a romantic- I knew it!

    Have a great weekend.

  3. WOOOOOOW for #9... i can't imagine i would be ever that brave

  4. I just got a bill this week from the IRS for between $1600 and $1900 -- depending upon when I pay them, which I'm not going to do. It has to do with a 401k that the investment firm moved from one fund to another, and the IRS thinks I took the money to buy shoes or something.

    Anyway, are you SURE you owe it? Can you ask an accountant or a lawyer to look at for you? I mean, I KNOW I don't owe on mine ...

  5. You shallow? pffft I think that was a brilliant idea. Now you give me some ideas...with or without booze LOL Have a great weekend :)

  6. #7--me

    #9--Enquiring minds want to know: was Bud in the club that night? :-)

  7. Cat and Harriet, no, Bud was at a different club that night...I never got to kiss him until 2010! : )

    Gal, sadly I DO owe this money to the IRS. I messed up my taxes from unemployment benefits I was paid and moving expenses that didn't count. Sigh.

    Thanks Thom!
