Saturday 9

Saturday 9: I Know I'm Losing You

1. Have you ever still been in a relationship that you knew was ending, but you hung in with it anyway?
If yes, why? Yes. I loved him, and I kept hoping it didn't have to be this way. But it did.

2. Tell why people around the world should be completely enthralled by you
. I am loyal and smart and tougher than I look.

3. Other than where you live, what's your favorite city and why? Boston. It's a beautiful and historic city, easily walkable, and it has a great old ballpark.

4. What is something you are really passionate about?
Oh shit, just about everything. I don't have a lot of different speeds. My best friend once told me he wished he cared about anything as much as I seem to care about everything. I love that he appreciates that about me. A lot of people don't, and find it tiring. (This explains my almost fetishist attachment to a certain character played by Streisand in a certain movie.)

5. What has been your most exciting prize that you've won?
When I was in third grade, I won $10 (about $50 today) from the local newspaper for an essay I wrote, nominating my teacher as Teacher of the Year. It was my first taste of fame and got me thinking that I could paid for dumping words on paper.

6. Do you think there was there a second gunman behind the grassy knoll?
No. And believe me, I've given it a lot of thought.

7. What was the silliest, most fun, crazy or impractical gift that you received?
Nothing springs to mind.

8. What was the most practical gift that you received? Socks.

9. What blogger has been in your blogroll the longest? How did you discover them?
Book Mama. We were brought together by The Thursday Thirteen.

    Enjoy the rest of your Saturday!

    I love how you pimp out The Way We Were on your blog. Granted, it's not my favorite movie but I just LOVE how there are certain topics that somehow you still manage to keep fresh.

  5. I find Boston and Chicago remarkably alike. Two of my faves...


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