Bud sat and listened to my 20th story of the funeral planning...

27. Do you have a lot to learn?
Doen't everyone?

28. If you could learn how to do three things just by wishing and not by working what would they be?
Play the drums. Manage and earn lots of money. Figure out my new SLR Digital camera without having to read that confusing manual.

1. Be taken to a sporting event. 2. Work on any project with my siblings ever again. 3. Gain my old weight back.

33. Is there a cause you believe in more than any other cause?
I like what Goodwill does. They have a free online training site that helps you learn office suite and get computer skills. They recycle clothes. They hire people no one else will and give them an opportunity to earn a living.

34. What does each decade make you think of:
1950's: School Guidance Films, long skirts and bad horror movies.
1960's: Great music, beach blanket bingo kids dancing, rebellion.

1980's: Fun music, funky hairdoos, freedom, fun fashion (shoulder pads, heavy eye makeup), great teen movies. Traveling & living in Great Britain.
1990's: Grunge, a wedding, my mother's death.
2000's: Weight loss surgery, Divorce, Moving a lot.
2010's: Bud, family, discipline, love.

35. Which decade do you feel the most special connection to and why?
1970's. I was a disco queen and had the POWER...and the whole world was in front of me, and all my dreams could come true.

36. What is your favorite oldie/classic rock song?
No fairzees. Too many to cruelly pick one.

37. What country do you live in and who is the leader of that country?
When not spaced out...USA in North America. The media is the leader of the country.

If you could say any sentence to the current leader of your country what would it be?
I was hoping we would have had our troops pulled out of the war by now, what happened to your plan?

38. What's your favorite TV channel to watch in the middle of the night?

39. What Disney villain are you the most like and why?
I hate Disney.

40. Have you ever been a girl scout/boy scout?
I was a Girl Scout and had a lot of badges. I still have my sash with all but one badge on it...and have been searching for that badge (to buy it) so my sash is complete.

41. If you were traveling to another continent would you rather fly or take a boat?
You can get really sick on a boat, you can crash a plane. I hold my breath and climb aboard planes usually. I only take them for Euro vaykays.

Kathryn Janeway of Star Trek, Collins for the Dark Shadows family, and Alexander for Alec Baldwin.

"If It's Tuesday This Must Be Belgium" is my alltime faorite movie...but even that is too much every day. "Pillow Talk" is 2nd fav.

49. You are going to be stuck alone in an elevator for a week. What do you bring to do?
A port-o-potty, Computer and charger, snacks to eat and bourbon or wine.

50. Have you ever saved someone's life or had your life saved?
I helped my former husband when he was choking on food. I always think the docs in an operating room save your life anytime you wake up after surgery.


  1. Oh, I remember the Collins clan from Collinwood! I should have listed Dark Shadows as a defining moment of the 1960s.

    Some of our answers are very similar this week. For example, we both have the same question for President Obama. And our answers to Clash and Pulp.

  2. Good answers. I almost did the same Clash answer, and would have taken my computer into the elevator if I thought I'd have had enough power for a week (would have taken a port-o-potty too if I'd given the question more than a moment's thought).

  3. HA! You hate Disney. Finally, someone admits it. And about the SLR....I took a class and I am still confused.

    Good luck with your planning.

  4. Strong, powerful and truthful answer.. *thumbs up*

    A total different from mine, somewhat.. :)

    Here is mine..

    See you

  5. OMG I almost put the Queen as well. You know when Diana and that butt ugly Charles got married I threw a huge party in the middle of the night. We had a great time. This one I just think I'll watch if I'm awake LOL The only time I ever hate Disney is when I have to pay those extremely high prices. :)

  6. I didn't even think of taking my charger with me in the stuck elevator. I guess it wouldn't do me much good to have my devices without it!

  7. #37...very true. It is the media calling the shots. Unbiased reporting of the facts is a thing of the past.
