Sunday Stealing

Sunday Stealing: Who Are you? Part 3 & 4 – Is it over yet?
Part 3: Past
34. What do you consider the most important event of your life so far? I was very much in love with a good man when I was in my mid-late 30's. It didn't work out. Loving him was very good for me as a person and I don't regret it, even though it wasn't right in the "forever" kinda way. And breaking up with him was defining because of the timing. I realized that he was my last crack at a conventional biological family of my own. I learned that simply wasn't in the cards for me, and that's alright, too.

35. What do you consider your greatest achievement? I am a strong person and, as Wilbur eulogized Charlotte in Charlotte's Web, I have become a good writer and a true friend.

36. What is your greatest regret? I wasted my 20s on a truly bad man.

37. What is the most evil thing you have ever done? I don't know that it's evil, exactly, but I have been known to yank the chains of RWNJs on Twitter. It's fun (although not especially nice) to press their buttons and watch them spin.

38. When was the time you were the most frightened? Autumn 2011, when I was waiting to hear if I had uterine cancer. I didn't. Thank God.

39. What is your best memory? I have many wonderful memories. I'm blessed that way.

Part 4: Beliefs And Opinions

40. Are you basically optimistic or pessimistic? Optimistic

41. What is your greatest fear? Being in a plane that crashes

42. What are your religious views? Jesus Christ is my Savior, and He inspires me to be a better person

43. State a random opinion? Ringo Starr and George Harrison are the luckiest men in the history of show business

44. What are your views on sex? I'm all for it

45. Are you able to cook? I can grill, boil and microwave. Does that count?

46. In your opinion, what is the most evil thing any human being could do? Destroy joy and innocence

47. Do you believe in the existence of soul mates and/or true love? Yes. And I hope to find it someday.

48. What do you believe makes a successful life? The Gorey quote at right says it all: "Books. Cats. Life Is Good."

49. How honest are you about your thoughts and feelings? I strive to be honest with myself.

50. Do you have any biases or prejudices? I admit to an inflexible problem with authority.

51. Is there anything you absolutely refuse to do under any circumstances? Why do you refuse to do it? I refuse to wear animal fur. Nothing that comes from that much cruelty can possibly be beautiful.

52. Who or what, if anything, would you die for (or otherwise go to extremes for)? I don't know.

Feeling grown up

I did my grocery shopping, took my nephew to lunch, got my hair cut and colored. And the money budgeted for my weekend is gone.

So I will stop spending.

While I am sick of worrying about money, I'm sticking to my resolve this weekend. While I want to eat out, go shopping and go to the movies, I want to stop worrying about money more. And being a grown up is the only sensible course.
