Saturday 9

Saturday 9: The Remedy (I Won't Worry)

1. What's the remedy for you to stop worrying? According to my best friend, I "awfulize." Meaning I imagine a situation as bad, and then worse, and then as horrible as it can possibly be. Then I realize, "I can handle it," and it gives me the confidence to go on.

2. What is your favorite summertime beverage? Coke. It's also my favorite wintertime beverage.

3. Do you use any freeware on your computer? If yes, do tell. Nope. At least I don't think so.

4. What is one thing about your home that has to be just so or it drives you crazy when it comes to organization? My bath linens have to match, or Christmas will be cancelled.

5. Is there a specific subject you're especially curious about? A person? A region of the world? An animal? A field of study? The 1960s. Especially the Kennedy Administration, The Beatles and the British Invasion.

6. What do you consider your most interesting trait? I think very quickly.

7. What is something that really frightens you, and can you trace it back to an event in your life? I don't fly well. The impetus is when I was in a long distance relationship, flying between Chicago and Philly. The more I saw of airports and airlines, the less confidence I had in their attention to detail. Then 9/11 happened. Those visuals are something I can't awfulize my way through. My ultimate terror.

8. Who do you want to yell at to “get a grip!”? Most of the counter workers I have encountered at the US post office.

9. What do you wear to particularly look great for a party or event? I have a coral cashmere sweater I like myself in.


  1. Hey there. Stopping by from the Saturday 9. I enjoyed the "charm" story. It's nice when someone "shows" that they like something much more than just telling us. Have a good weekend.

  2. oh, I agree with the bath linens! I never realized not everyone does.

  3. LOL @ counter USPS workers. Totally. Often, though, I find most of the other customers need to get a grip even more than the employees!

  4. I'm not in love with flying either.

    Have a great weekend!

  5. Number 8, yeah, you know, it takes longer for a letter to get across this little town than it does for it to get two states away? I kid you not. Now, I'm gonna go have a Coke.

  6. Ahh. The Beatles. Rock group, right? Oh and Galloping Gary was born on June 18. You pic our "Paul"... :)
