Saturday 9

Saturday 9: Gimme Three Steps

1. Has anyone ever got angry with you for flirting with their partner or date?
Yes. At at a friend's birthday party, his wife was soooo mean to me! And he and I weren't even flirting! We have just known each other for a long time and shared a private joke or two. It was so silly. He'd never cheat on her. She's very beautiful ... and more than a little scary.

2. What is your favorite movie line or speech? (Set the scene so we appreciate it in context.) "I'm a bagel on a plate full of onion rolls!" That's Funny Girl Fanny explaining why, even though she looks different from the other show girls, she's just as appealing.

3. What is something that has happened to you that you would consider a miracle? I narrowly missed being completely creamed by a speeding cab.

4. What do you try to stay away from? Cigarette smoke

5. What is it too late for? It's too late for me to die young.

6. If you could write three newspaper headlines, which would come true, what would they be?

7. When was the last time you apologized to someone? I feel like I'm always apologizing. Friday I left a typo in a manuscript.

8. If you find out now that you would very well known after you die, what do you think it might be for? (Feel free to pick an accomplishment that you have yet to do.) I'd like to be remembered as a "true friend and a good writer," which is how Wilbur remembered Charlotte in Charlotte's Web.

9. Are you easily angered or able to handle every situation calmly? Both. In that I am easily angered but I work hard to keep it under control.


  1. LOL @ "Sir Paul Weds The Gal Herself"! The Funny Girl quote was neat. SO Barbra! Love the Charlottes Web answer. Have a great weekend Gal! : )

  2. You seem like a very sweet person. Wanting to be remembered as a true friend, huh?...

    Ha, ha, I am always apologizing too. I do not know if it is a result of insecurity or a "leftover" from my long-abandoned perfectionism―I "should never" make mistakes―but I am always doing it. One of my Canadian friends has told me that I would do well in Canada, since Canadians are often overly apologetic. (I have no idea if this is true.)

    But remember, you can't die old if you don't feel old. Sounds cheesy, but feeling young at heart really does make a difference!

    Have a good day.

  3. I love Funny Girl :)

    Have a great day!

  4. All of your answers are great. #8 is perfect for you!

    I am sorry. It was not a reply for you but for “simple”.
    It is she who is playing some weird game with me and ask me for explanation.

    I know you did understand the question and so. And I am truly sorry if you misunderstood my words.
    I do read your blog regularly, and I really love it. I do not comment just because I do not know if there is anything interesting i could add to your thoughts….
    So once again. I do apologize if i did offend you in any way. It was not my intention.
