The 15 Questions Tag

Hello people!

I know I haven’t shown up for a while with a new post. Although I’ve been busy. I do have a couple of things I have been working on, but they aren’t ready to be posted yet. One is another chapter to my story ‘The Man in the Fedora’. So stay tuned!

For now, I am stealing an idea from Mer over at Knocked Over by a Feather. She of course got it from someone else. It seems to be the go to post for us that have nothing otherwise for today. 😉

We answer 15 questions. I thought the questions were pretty good ones. So here we go!

15-questions-tag

 

What do you think you can do but can’t?

Well, I had to think about this one. Is it a trick question? LOL

I think I can do what I could do 20 years ago, but I can’t. I’m not as young, agile or have the want to that I had back then. Damn, it’s hard getting old. Some days I find just getting out of bed a trial. (By the way, my new mattress is oh so comfy! I had to get used to it! Isn’t that funny?)

What’s a difficult word for you to pronounce?

I find that I have become adept at using different words that I CAN pronounce. There are words that seem to get me every time. Like, cacophony, I never get that right! Or, entrepreneurship. I still can’t say it right the first time.

What are your favorite TV shows from your childhood?

The memories come sweeping back. Let’s see, The A Team, Twilight Zone, Taxi, The Carol Burnett Show, Kung Fu, just to name a few.

What are your virtues and vices?

Virtues; honesty, loyalty, trustworthy.

Vices; my temper, sarcastic, sometimes I’m a bit of a nitpick. oh, and I also like to play devil’s advocate.

What’s more important: love, fame, power, or money?

Love is more important, but I wouldn’t mind having some money for a change, you know, just to see what it’s like.

If you could live in any era/time period, when would it be and why?

Mer said the 60’s and I kind of agree. I also always wanted to try the 20’s, before the depression. Seemed like a fun time to be in. Think of flappers and a more innocent time.

If you had to redo your entire wardrobe with 2 stores, what would they be and why?

Well, this one was hard because I hate to shop, especially clothes. So I had to really think about it. I do know of an online store I love called OneStopPlus. I have found things to wear that actually fit a vertically challenged person such as myself! I can order pants that I don’t have to hem! Plus their t-shirts come long, just like I love them. They are reasonably priced even with shipping and they have a wide assortment of things to choose from. The other store would probably be a thrift store.

Can you recall what you were doing a year ago on this day?

More than likely just what I am doing today. Blogging, taking care of my disabled husband and assorted critters.

Do you have reoccurring dreams? If so, explain?

I do have a few recurring dreams. The first one is that I win the lottery. I have been having this dream for the last 5 years or so. At least once a week I have that dream, I win about 5 million and my family is on the phone wanting part of it and I tell them to kiss my butt. LOL I know sounds terrible, but only if you didn’t know my family.

Another one is I am talking to my Dad. He passed about 11-12 years ago. We are having a conversation. The conversations are usually about fate, our ability to change, and various other topics. I always feel so close to him with these dreams. It’s a nice feeling.

What’s your horoscope?

I’m a Virgo with Leo tendencies. Roar! LOL

Virgo Horoscope for February 19 2015: Family gives you a sense of structure and permanence. Turn to your relatives if you are feeling restless. Are you estranged from your kin? Create a support network consisting of friends, neighbors, and colleagues. Everybody should belong to a tribe. When they don’t, feelings of vulnerability can be overwhelming. Fortunately, you have many fine qualities that people admire. Your wit, intelligence and practicality will make you a valued member of a distinguished community.

What does your dream bedroom look like?

This is what it would look like! Perfect!

What position do you sleep in?

I’m a side sleeper. Lately though I have caught myself sleeping on my back. Never did before. As long as I sleep, who cares!

What are your all-time favorite films?

For me this is a tough one as I don’t watch movies very often. Hardly never, in fact. But, a couple of movies I saw years ago comes to mind.

A Christmas Carol with George C Scott

Anything with Jackie Chan, not because he has a great name (even though he does). Because he’s funny and I love to watch his fight scenes.

What makeup are you currently wearing?

None. Haven’t since I had a job outside the home. Au Natural baby!

Do you have neat handwriting? Show us!

Not sure if it’s neat or not. But, it’s mine!
