Saturday 9

Saturday 9: I'm So Proud

1. What are you proud of? I have a way with critters.

2. What is the best thing you’ve ever won as a prize? How did you win it? When I was in third grade, I won $10 from the local newspaper in the "My Favorite Teacher" essay contest.

3. Tell us about something you've done that in retrospect was a waste of time. Whenever I start looking at the Linked-In networking site, I find that someone I know is connected to this or that person I know and pretty soon, 45 minutes has passed.

4. How old were you when life changed the most for you? How did it change? 21. I began my career as an advertising writer and all my horizons (professional, personal, fiscal) were expanded.

5. Tell us about a place you that you've been that you considered to be very tranquil. Atop the Hot Springs Mountain Tower. Go up to the observation deck and you're more than 1000 feet above Hot Spring, AR, overlooking some very beautiful country. It's never very crowded up there, giving you the perfect opportunity to reflect.

6. Who is your favorite news anchor/reporter? Why? John Oliver of The Daily Show. Because just looking at him makes me laugh. Oh! You mean a real anchor? Mika Brzezinski from Morning Joe. MJ is my favorite news show because representatives from both sides of the political divide are given a chance to talk at length, not just in sound bites. And because it's funny.

7. If you were to have the opportunity to name a new town or city, what would you call it? Why? Galtopia.

8. What is something about which you've always wondered but have not yet found a good answer? Who believes Snuggies are a necessity?

9. When you can't go to sleep, what is your personal remedy to help yourself drift into Lullabyland? I don't have one. I'll check other answers and maybe adopt one.


  1. i like your town name, I would visit there LOL

  2. I love GALTOPIA! Great answer. : ) I confess, I have a blue snuggie and actually had to wear it the other night. I have the flu and it was warm. It really is just a stoopid extra long hospital johnny made of fleece. They never show you drooping in the back in the ads. Mine always falls off. It take a special person to "have a way with critters". Have a great weekend!

  3. Yeah...the wearing a robe backwards...I don't get it either, but some people love it. Takes all kinds. Galtopia is a great name. Love John Oliver...too funny. Glad you stopped by, Gal!

  4. I have a snuggie! It's nice and comfy, but it's definitely not on my list of things to save if there was a fire.

  5. I think that Linked-in is the number one thing that people join and never return to.

    Have a good Saturday!

  6. I think John Oliver is a real reporter and that Jon Stewart is the only dude that makes sense! Happy Saturday, Gal...

  7. That $10 prize really opened some doors for you, didn't it? I mean, look at you today--a professional writer!!
