"Space hogs" who take up the locker room bench with their iPods, gym bags & water bottles

Adults who don't keep track of civic/political matters (It's part of being a grown up, folks!)
Anyone refers to a woman as, "Dude"

4 - Sloth. Seven things you neglect to do.

7 - Lust. Seven love secrets.

Oh, please. I have the sex life of a nun. And not by choice!

I'm Lovin' It!

Since tomorrow is the Oscars, the cable channels are presenting some of the great award grabbers. Right now I'm luxuriating in All About Eve. Nominated for 13 Oscars, winner of 6, and a movie that not only gave us a very young Marilyn Monroe but Bette Davis spouting this great line of dialog, "Fasten your seatbelts! It's going to be a bumpy night."

Saturday 9

Saturday 9: Monday, Monday

1. How does your day usually go on Monday? Once I get up and get my mind around the fact that it is indeed Monday morning, it's OK.

2. Who was the last band you saw live? The E Street Band. BROOOOOOCE!

3. When was the last time you purchased something over $50? Last Sunday I took my friend Kathy out to celebrate her birthday.

4. Does talking about sex make you uncomfortable? Nope.

5. Do you wish you were someplace else right now? Nope.

6. Tell us about the last wedding that you attended. My former boss/theater buddy Barb's wedding. She was so happy, and the wedding was such a perfect reflection of her and her groom, that I forgot how much I hate weddings. I was like the Grinch, and my small heart grew three sizes that day.

7. What's annoying you right now? How messy my condo is.

8. What is your best skill/ability? Why? I can wiggle my ear. Because it cracks children up.

9. If someone asked a friend of yours, "Hey, what is one thing your friend is exceptional at?", what would they say about you? Why? My friend Kathleen once called me "an exceptional friend." I am very proud of that.
