Saturday 9

Saturday 9: Hurts So Good

1. Tell us about the last time you really got hurt. I am now very upset because of my uncle. His mental decline has been swift, and I am struggling to accept the loss of the man he was.

2. What's your oldest possession? My Lassie dog. That worn old plush toy must be more than 45 years old.

3. Do you have any phobias? Air travel. Squirrels. Clowns.

4. What values did your parents instill in you? From my father I got a love of history and a respect for what came before. I got my mother's affection and respect for animals.

5. What are your plans for Easter? My niece is cooking ham and quiche, and I am eating it.

6. I like sun more than snow. I don't understand what's meant by this statement. I've enjoyed many bright, sunny, snow-covered days.

7. Tell us about 3 fads from your teenage years. Platforms shoes, even sneakers. Corny variety shows (everyone from Glenn Campbell to Donny & Marie to Tony Orlando & Dawn). Farrah hair.

8. Tell us what is the most important attribute in a lover. Sensitivity.

9. What new piece of technology have you resisted buying and what would it take for you to change your mind? DVR. I just don't feel like paying even more for cable every month.


  1. no.6 was confusing!

  2. I remember Farrah hair! Happy Saturday :)

  3. I remember the Glen Campbell show. He was dating that young actress whose name I've forgotten.

    Have a great Saturday!

  4. its interesting that you have a clown phobia. its the first time ive heard of that! hehe

  5. I hate clowns too. Actually, most people I know hate clowns.

  6. I never got the DVR thing until my kids bought me a Tivo when I was ill in bed for a year. Once you've had the way you watch TV changes forever. Happy Saturday! Have a great Easter...

  7. Oh, DVR--that should have been my answer!

    I bet your niece is excited to be the head chef this holiday meal.
