What TV gameshow/reality show would you
like to be on?
Right now, none. But if I were younger and fitter, I'd love to be on
Amazing Race and if my brain worked faster these days, I would love to
What was the first movie you bought in VHS
Oh wow. That was back in the 1970s. I don't have a clue.
But I remember we were only going to buy ONE because they were so expensive.
Now I have them coming out my ears, and that's after giving away >300
If you had one million dollars to spend
only on yourself, what would you spend it on?
Only on myself? I can't share it? OK. The best, fastest
computer available, my own car (I've never owned my own car), someone to
help me organize clutter and a housekeeper to keep it organized, a personal
tailor to make clothes that fit me, and a trip
to visit each of my Compassion kids. Or just pay ahead for 20 years in
an Independent/Assisted living facility, so I don't have to worry about
money, housekeeping or cooking ever again.
One place you've visited, can't forget and
want to go back to?
The South of France.
Do you trust easily?
Less easily than I used to, but still too easily.
Do you generally think before you act, or
act before you think?
Act before I think. (see previous question!)
Is there anything that has made you
unhappy these days?
My mother's increasing dementia makes me unhappy every day, though on the
flip side, I'm happy that, at 95, she is still in good health.
Do you have a good body image?
Sure. This is it:
What is your favorite fruit?
Strawberries and pineapple, with bananas a close second.
I’m always being asked…
If I think my mother is going to live "to hunnert"
The last big belly laugh I had was…
I laugh at lot, but I can't remember the last big belly laugh.
What websites do you visit daily?
Facebook, G-mail, Compassion, Swap Bot, Instagram, Word with Friends
What have you been seriously addicted to
In the last 2 days, a thread on Facebook bringing a host of old journalists
back together. Many no longer journal, some still do. They have
come out of the woodwork to reminisce. Such fun!
What's the last song that got stuck in
Can't think of one. Probably something from a commercial.
Sweat pants and a t-shirt, with Birkenstocks.
Do you think Rice Krispies are yummy?
I used to love them. Now...? meh. And they don't snap, crackle,
or pop for me any more.
What would you do if you saw $100 lying on
Pick it up and see if anyone nearby had lost it (not revealing the amount,
of course). If not, keep it for awhile until I feel it's OK to spend
Items you couldn't go without during the
I can pretty much go without almost anything during the day, except
water and indoor plumbing. But what would I not want to go
without during a day -- my iPad, the TV, my computer, and mail delivery.
What should you be doing right now?
Cleaning. Folding laundry. That kind of stuff.
