Are there any specific numbers that you are irrationally afraid of and if so, why?
Dear Teresa - aren't you the clever one....sneaking this in here when you know full well that I fear the number 53. Law, it's even hard to type it. It had to be about 5 years ago - I was on a camping trip to Southern Indiana, and on the way down there, as I was a passenger in the car, I had my head turned out the window, and I kept seeing the #53 go past me. It was semi-trucks. The next thing you know - I started getting this weird vibe about the #53, and every time I would see the trucks coming up past me, I would turn away. When we got to the campground - I saw a couple walking with matching shirts - you guessed it - the #53 emblazoned on the shirt. We were in spot 53 at the campground. The next thing I knew I was on Route 53. The first purchase I rang up at work when coming home from the camping trip - $53.53. I kid you not. I started to freak out. I'd look at the clock and it would be 3:53, 1:53, etc. The temperature on the bank would be 53 degrees. Everywhere I looked - I saw the #53. I felt like the universe was trying to tell me something - bad. I was a nervous wreck the year Glen was 53 years old. When he survived it, I thought for sure it meant that I was going to get the axe at that age. When I see the #53 now - and I do - often - I still get this weird twinge inside, but now I tell myself that it must mean that my 53rd year is going to be the best one yet - ya, that's what I keep telling myself now. I'm not sure I believe it. If I do a post where I get 53 comments - law - its not good. I wait on pins and needles for #54. Sharing this irrational fear of a number seems to put just one more nail in my crazy coffin. Seriously - I'm quite normal....no...really....I am.
What else do you know about the fake accent lady?
Well, not much. Obviously she's local - since there have been 'sightings'. I feel sorry for her - I do. She's got to be a bit mentally ill - I would think by her behavior that she's quite lonely. If you don't know what we are talking about - if you are new - you might want to read about the Fake Accent Lady here. Law, I hope she never signs up for one of my baking classes!
Well just because I would feel left out if I did not ask at least one question. What is your favorite color? Oh one more....What is the favorite plant/flower you grow?
My favorite color is green. Everything in my house is green. Almost all of my clothes are green. I have to be careful when I shop-I'm always immediately drawn to anything green! My favorite flower - dear - that is like picking a favorite child, or a chicken. Hmmm......I don't think I can answer that. It happens to be whatever is blooming at the moment. I must say daisies make me extra happy. I love anything that blooms profusely.
Do you have a secret ambition that lies deep in your heart?
I would have to say it's to answer all of my emails on a timely basis. At this point - that's what it feels like - a secret ambition! Joycee - if I tell my secret ambition - well it's not a secret anymore! I'm going to do it - I'm going to spit it out. My secret ambition is to be super fit - to be able to run a marathon, or do some other endurance sport. It's not too late yet-perhaps if I would become obsessed with working out, instead of German pastries, I'd be on the right track.
Where do you get all of your energy and motivation? I am envious of all you accomplish. You are a wonder!
Oh dear - a wonder huh? I'm not sure where I get all of my energy - I'd like to know - cause I feel the need for more lately! I've always been a bit driven about things that strike my fancy. I burn out quickly on things and then move on. I learn it - and move on. Wish I was more about sticking with things - but I'm not. Seems I have this insatiable desire to know HOW to do things. That seems to give me the energy to carry on. I do tend to crash and burn though - so I'm not sure it's a good thing to be like me - how I long to be balanced.
Bacon is $3.00 a lb. and up!
What do you think of that? ARGH!!!
I don't like it one bit! The blessed pork belly was over $3 a pound at the meat market. I'm going to sound like a smoker now - I'll quit eating it when it gets to $5 a pound. Ya. Right.
How many hours of sleep do you get a night? I think MUCH less than me cause you get way more done in a day than I do.
Well - that varies as much as our weather does dear Debbyrose.....I try for a good seven to eight hours. Saturday night I got three - thanks to hormones - sometimes I get ten. I guess it all balances out. I sleep more than you'd think. I just never stop moving once I am up. Now that I'm staying off the computer more, it's 'ridikerous' how much I can get done!
I'm just going to answer five at a time - this is a lot of drivel.
Have a most wonderful Monday!
