Time to humor one and torment four

It goes without saying, at some point in every blog's life - you will get tagged. It could be something as validating as an award, or as humorous as a shout out. It could be as sweet as a tribute or as tormenting as... all together now.. "a Tagged Survey."

Really, I am only joking about the torment. I really don't mind writing. It's what I do for a living, and it is what I do for fun. Write.. write .. write. Usually it is me asking questions from 8:30 - 5pm, but now.. and here only - I get to talk about ME.

My dear bloggy friend - Leanne at From Chaos Comes Happiness, decided to tag me and three other very lucky ladies to answer not 1, not 3, not 5 - but 19 questions about ourselves. Lord have mercy.

Stay tuned at the end - because I will be tagging 4 other unsuspecting individuals!
Now.. let's get on with it!

1. if you have pets, do you see them as merely animals, or are they members of your family?

I don't have pets anymore, and as long as I am married to the egyptian I will not. HOWEVER - I viewed my pets as members of the family. Really bad, misbehaving, shedding, pooping, slurping, drooling members of the family.  However - if I visit you - I see them as an annoying animal. Don't judge. ;-)
I am not completely heartless. Read about my true love, Nanook, HERE.


2. if you can have a dream to come true, what would it be?

Only one? Okay.. I would choose to live a long - healthy - life. I realize *finally* all we have is our health.


3. what is the one thing most hated by you?


Mayo. Yuck.



4. what would you do with a billion dollars?


I written about this already. Check it out -HERE.





5. what helps to pull you out of a bad mood?


I have to agree with so many of my friends- Starbucks. Seriously, the caffeine is a mood elevator for me.


6. which is more blessed, loving someone or being loved by someone?
I love - loving. It is rare that I have feelings for anyone.. so I love - loving.


7. what is your bedtime routine?


Typically, I wash my face, use the bathroom, lock up, pour water in my CPAP machine (oh yeah... read more HERE, and then I settle into bed with my book until I am ready to turn off the lights.



8. if you are currently in a relationship, how did you meet your partner?
That's a really LONG story. Check it out HERE.

9. if you could watch a creative person in the act of the creative process, who would it be?


Probably Anne Rice or Johnny Depp or Maxfield Parrish or Bob Fosse or Carlos Santana or.. I could go on and on..



10. what kinds of books do you read?
That's easy - check it out HERE.

11. how would you see yourself in ten years time?
47? WOW. That's a lot to think about. Let's see.. hmm.. living in NYC with the egyptian... working in same profession..

Gosh. I have no idea. Hell, I don't know how my life will look in 5 months...


12. what’s your fear?
Forever and always - death. The great unknown. How will it happen.. when will it happen.. horrible...

13. would you give up all junk food for the rest of your life for the opportunity to visit outer space?

Hell to the No.  ** PS - got tired of changing the questions to purple. ;-)


14. would you rather be single and rich or married, but poor?

Neither one mentioned whether I would be happy. I choose happy.

15. what’s the first thing you do when you wake up?
Bathroom. Do I need to say more?



16. if you could change one thing about your spouse/partner what would it be?


You got an hour? Ha ha.. just kidding, I love him as he is.. but he needs to about something other than himself.


17. if you could pick a new name for yourself, what would it be?


Bertha Bubble Butt



18. would you forgive and forget no matter how horrible a thing that special someone has done?

I can forgive. That's all I am capable of committing to.


19. if you could only eat one thing for the next 6 months, what would it be?
Chips & Dip. :-)





OK ladies & Gentlemen -  here's the story . . . copy the below 19 questions and answer them on a post of your own. OR . . . don't. I really don't mind! But, it's a fun way to learn a little more about your blog buds, and I'd love to learn more about each of YOU!

I have to pick four - and YOU in turn will have to pick four. TORMENT. I told you! ;-)

I am going to pick randoms  (People you may not have visited yet)- and see if they notice they were picked!

I pick: Kamilla at Basket Dreams; my sister has a new blog (again) - Heather at The Road Not Taken .. Jen G-son at Noticing the Little Things and finally Doris at Organized Chaos.
