Saturday 9

Saturday 9: Dark Lady

1. Have you ever been to a fortune teller? If yes, what happened? I spoke to fortune tellers and psychics rather compulsively during a rocky, isolated time in a relationship that was very important to me. I was desperate to know what the future held for us. I thought most were charlatans but one gave me a genuinely valuable insight: apropos to nothing I had told her about myself, she told me that I needed to really feel the love I received animals. Not only did I have cats of my own, at that time I was spending a lot of time doing volunteer work at an animal shelter. So it was appropriate and helpful.

2. How do you cope in an uncomfortable social situation? Try to make the best of it until I can high tail it out of there!

3. A genie appears (of course). She asks, “If you had 3 wishes but each took 3 years off your life, what would you wish for and why?” Sorry, but I'm not interested in such a deal. Sounds more like a devil than a genie to me.

4. Would you rather lose your soul mate or never meet them at all? Oh, wow! This one is tough! I suppose I'd rather lose him.

5. What is the hardest thing that you have ever had to do? I ended the relationship mentioned in Question #1. He was a good man, and I loved him, but we weren't happy.

6. Have you ever had a miracle happen to you or your loved ones? I almost got creamed by a cab. No way I would have survived that. I think of it every time I cross the street at that spot.

7. Tell us about a quote that you can relate to. Why can you relate to it? "East is east and west is west and if you take cranberries and stew them like applesauce they taste much more like prunes than rhubarb does." Groucho Marx. I love the way it confuses people when I invoke it.

8. What personality trait has gotten you into the most trouble? Being a smartass who enjoys quoting Groucho Marx.

9. For those in The States, how was your Turkey Day? If not from the US, do you celebrate a day like Thanksgiving? I had an unconventional but pleasant family get together.


  1. I like your quote cute...

  2. Hey, Groucho said some very smart things worth quoting.

    Have a great day!

  3. Smartassness is a fun quality to get yourself in trouble with, if you ask me.

  4. Groucho is full of great quotes! Enjoyed your answers...have a great week Gal!


Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
