Pisces...and I am definitely a true Piscean...

53) Do you save money for anything? What?

Shallow ones perhaps, but never for lust.

56) In a relationship?
...and how!

57) How many relationships have you had?

58) What do you want to tell us about your day?
Started out totally exhausted from the aftermath of yesterday's major project of setting up Bud's studio... I made coffee, read the paper, watched Wife Swaps and Say Yes To The Dress all morning and afternoon. Baked brownies. A very lazy and somewhat unhealthy Sunday. : )

59) Where were you yesterday?
"Helping" Bud set up his new studio...took every box and piece of equipment OUT first, then we systematically put it all back in... I went to Home Depot and got custom shelves cut for his 15000 LPs, sweated at least 2 brownies worth alone, carrying boxes of tons of cassettes, measuring anfd hammering up art, prints and photos to the walls, set up equipment and moved a CD stand that looks like a tree. It took over 8 hours, but it came out great...I proceeded to enjoy a VERY large glass of wine and accordingly fell abruptly asleep.

The Say Yes To The Dress episode I am watching is vaguely interesting...I am wedding dress hunting for my October wedding...

Yes, new ones in fact. : )

Swedish-Irish-Scot....My mother's grandmothers came from Sweden and Ireland. My father's family history was dotted with pirates and criminals...and from Scotland.

Dropping my wine glass while falling asleep...

I am engaged and a new home-owner.

69) What is the key to seduction?
Saying "Yes" to more than just the dress!

70) What was the weirdest thing that happened to you this week??
If we can count tomorrow, I am going to a hypnotist.

71) You are walking down the street on your way to work. There is a dog drowning in the canal on the side of the street. Your boss has told you if you are late one more time you get fired. What do you do?
Are you kidding???!!! I can't swim but I'm diving into the canal to save the hound...who would let an animal suffer to get to work on time????

72) You are at the doctor’s office and she has just informed you that you have approximately one month to live. a) Do you tell anyone/everyone you are going to die? b) What do you do with your remaining days? c) Would you be afraid?
I'm not in the right mindset to think about this....

73) You can only have one of these things: trust or love.
Huh? Hmmm....methinks love is the best thing...all you need is...

74) What's a song that always makes you happy when you hear it?
Right now I am listening only to hiphop radio stations and am enjoying the rhymes and funny lines...cannot decide on one particular song, as each day I hear something new and interesting. "Blame it on the ah al al al al al-co-hol"....

75) Who has your cell phone number (other than family)?
A bunch of people who I'm not happy have it...

SATURDAY 9 MEME: Indian Reservation

Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. ...
Saturday 9: Indian Reservation

1. Do you enjoy going to a casino now and again?
Yes, I love Mohegan Sun. I enjoy the free concerts in the Wolf's Den, walking around the shops and sometimes playing a slot (ole skool type). The food can be great too. I used to work at Foxwoods, so saw it from both sides...

2. What makes you happy most of the time?
Thinking of Bud and our new life together in our new house. : )

3. Are you jealous of someone right now?
Not really one person, but thin people in general. I gained about 25 lbs over the past 2 years I am struggling to lose before the wedding.

4. You're stranded on a desert island with one fictional character. Who is it? Why?
Barnabas of my first crushes and such an interesting person who has time travelled and lived in many places.

5. Have you ever been in the emergency room? If yes, for what (most recently)?
I was with Bud last time for a health issue he was having. I may have to get a broken finger tended too, but I have too much work at the house to have them break my finger again to set it. yipes.

6. Where is the last place you drove to just for fun?
Lowes...for a power drill and bit that goes through metal so I could assemble the bedframe and bolt the rails to the headboard and footboard. Used a gift card we got as a housewarming from our realtor.

7. If you were to make your living as a photographer, what would love to shoot?
I used to work in photo studios and did freelance photography for a side job. I enjoy photographing events like weddings and parties. I've been told I do a good job, tho I can be intrusive at times. I love to document events. This works well with Bud because he is such a hambone and always ready to pose for me.

8. Tell us about a band you like that we might not have heard.
Bud's son James' band is called SO LONG DAVEY! and I really enjoy them. Original music as well as a dynamite cover of Billy Idol...
9. Where was the last place you went shopping? Why?
I was at Osgood Textiile company in West Springfield, MA buying pillow forms for euro shams... Right now, all my shopping is about the house...I am an online shopper, especially and Amazon. I have purchased a LOT of our furniture, rugs and art from online sites. They deliver to your door and the selection is terrific...much better than tramping all over the mall or getting lost in a box store, paying top dollar, hauling bags, loading the car and dragging stuff into the house.
