A Sunday Meme, 2 Days Late

Found this Meme at Bev Sykes’ blog, Airy Persiflage: Sunday Stealing and thought I needed a little “light and airy” mood here at the blog.  No politics.  So here goes… copy and reblog if you wish…

(Note:  Bev had numbered each question starting with 26, so I am keeping her numbering system, even if it doesn’t appear to make sense in my blog here… )

26 – Did you have an accident last year?
Not in the conventional sense of the word, but in the more personal sense of the word, I’d have to answer “yes” but don’t really want to go into details.  Let’s just say that sometimes it feels like I’ve reverted back to early childhood days in some respects of ADL’s (activies of daily living) and leave it at that.
27 – Do you have any famous relatives?
Why, yes I do.  The most notable relatives I have include my 4th cousin, President James A. Garfield, my 13th cousin, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and my very favorite famous relative, my (? #) cousin, Nathaniel Hawthorne, writer from Salem, MA.
28 – Did you ever had a kiss under the moonlight?

Although I couldn’t tell you the details, I’m sure I must have.

29 – Have you ever been jealous?
Oh yeah… a lot!
30 – How can you prove your love to someone?
My way is by plodding along day in and day out, making the granola, making the ice cream, making the homemade bread, and making the cookies, along with making the suppers every night with few exceptions, and just being here for my lover and best friend every minute of every day of our lives.
31 – What are you thinking right now?
I’m thinking about typing this sentence without making any typos.
32 – Have you ever sacrificed something important to you for someone you love?
33 – Can you live without internet?
Bev had a good answer to this one and it’s basically mine, as well.  Yes I CAN live without internet but I would not WANT to do it, at this point.  It would seriously complicate my life trying to go backward after all the little time-saving things I can do online now.  I don’t know how my Paul lives without it, but he never tried it, so you don’t miss what you don’t have, I guess.
34 – Have you been so emotional that you can’t find words to explain how you feel?
Many, many, many, many, many times.  A lot of times.  I am an emotional being.
35 – Did you ever badmouth someone?
Unfortunately, yes.  I admit it.  Especially this past year during the U.S. election cycle!
36 – What do you prefer, jeans or skirt?
Jeans.  However, if I were a nice size 10 and a skirt would look good on me, I might prefer skirts.  I have nothing against them, but not on me, not at this point.
37 – Do you have trust issues?
If you mean trusting others, not really.  Especially my spouse – I trust with my life.  If you mean trusting myself, maybe a little.  I am feeling old and things are starting to break down and I don’t fully trust that I’ll get thru each day successfully, but somehow I do.
38 – What’s something that you made all on your own and are incredibly proud of?
It may not appear to be all on my own, because my spouse contributes too, but I would have to say “a happy home” for Paul, Belle (and former fuzzies), and myself here at Crow Cottage.
39 – Who’s the person who first comes to your mind when someone mentions “love”?
The first is my Paul.  The second is our Belle, the best collie girl in the world.
40 – Who was the last person you hugged?
My dog/person, Belle,when I came downstairs about an hour ago.
41 – Do you believe in the phrase “If it’s meant to be, it will be”?
Yes.  I tend to say “It is what it is.”  Period.
42 – Do people praise you for your looks?
Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!  Ahhhh, no.  Maybe years ago in my youth, maybe… but certainly not anymore… oh no.
43 – Do you believe in destiny?
Yes.  I believe we, as timeless souls, have a destined purpose in Life and that we choose each Lifetime ourselves.
44 – Have you ever thought “I already found my soulmate”?
Yes, every day.  Finding him was the best thing that ever happened to me in this Life.
45 – Do you like nicknames that are from your name?
I was “Becky” growing up – I always hated that name.  I was “Rebecca” after marrying husband #1, and my family had trouble changing to that, but it IS my name and I like it a lot more than “Becky.”  I became “Bex” when I went online and needed a moniker that was quick and easy to remember and to type, so “Bex” it has been, mainly online only, since the late 1990’s.  However, I go by my whole real name of Rebecca in real life.
46 – Could you ever be a vegan?”
Oh yes.  If I were single, I’d be either a vegan or a vegetarian (whatever the difference is, I’m not sure)… but I would probably not buy or eat meat, however, I am addicted to certain dairy products.
47 – Do you currently have bruises on your body?
No.  I try to stay upright and to not bump into things because my stability is not so good these last few years.  I give myself a lot of clearance with other objects!
48 – What should you be doing right now?
Right about now I should be getting up from this chair and taking Belle outside to sniff the real air and, if she wishes, to do her P&Ps.  So that’s where I’m headed…
49 – I read in a magazine that shoulder pads are coming back. Are you happy to hear this or do you not find them to be very attractive?
I think shoulder pads are just the worst idea ever.  That said, I did use them in clothing if they came sewn into the garment, but I was known to clip them out of blouses when they became too obvious.  I particularly despise shoulder pads on men!
50 – Did you ever feel like you’re not good enough?
All the time.

So that’s the meme for this week.  Thanks to Bev Sykes for it, and I’ll see you again soon.

    Thanks Teri! Belle does try to talk to me and Paul all the time. She is the most talkative dog we’ve ever had. I just wish I had a dog-translator sometimes!


  2. Teri says:

    Yes, you are good enough, Bex. Listen to Belle. She’ll tell you a hundred times a day. 🙂
