Came unclipped from my rope rock climbing and it swung 10 feet to my right when I was up 80 feet from the ground
Jumping from one ship to another in the Bering Sea in a hurrican strength storm (the ships would crash into each other then pull away so you had to time it right or you'd be dead)

Antique umbrella stand with 7 antique umbrellas

1. Name 3 career options you considered before settling on your chosen profession. Midwife, ecologist/researcher, bed and breakfast owner/manager.

2. Name 3 foods you hate. Green peppers, raw onions, cooked turnips.

3. Name the 3 times when you were the most frightened. During a resuscitation in the hospital setting, when I lost Evil Genius in the grocery store, and...I guess that's it.

4. Name 3 thriftshop items in your home. Our rocking chair (from St. Vinny's), our other rocking chair (from the curb), and an ottoman (from the curb). The curb is kind of like a mega thrift shop, right?

5. Name 3 compelling reasons for the necessity of political reform. Universal healthcare is an absolute necessity, absolute power corrupts absolutely, and the current system is untenable.

6. Name the last 3 catalogues you received in the mail. Pottery Barn, LL Bean, Athleta.

7. Name 3 public figures you most admire. Any who truly live simply so others may simply live. I don't know that there are three of them.

Great answers, VE. It sounds to me as though you meet life head-on. I admire that. Love your antique thriftshop items in #4.:)

Kan, you don't like coconut? My goodness! I hear your pain in #3 and #5. And what happened to YOUR thriftshop items?:)

It's good you so admire those 3, /t. Lord knows they'll soak up plenty of news ink this year, so you won't get bored.:)

I hate those three #2 items, too, Greeny. #3 -- yikes! I can see how frightening that must have been. You hit the nail on the head with #4, my dear. The curb is the biggest, bestest mega thriftshop in the world.:)

Serena Joy said...

You know, Galen, just reading your #2 is triggering my gag reflex. Ugh! #3 -- Whoa, that's some serious stuff. I'm SO glad that's all in the past. I am insulted by #7. Hmph! For putting me behind Gates & Woods, I believe something nice from your Godiva catalogue would be in order.:-)

G-Man said...

DOH!!!!!
Boy, THAT was stupid of me!!!
Are you telling me that you like chocolate?

Serena Joy said...

Do I like chocolate? Duh! You know which kind. You know what you have to do, bud.:-)

1. Name 3 career options you considered before settling on your chosen profession.
Career?

2. Name 3 foods you hate.
Other than meat?
raw onions
cantaloupe
bell peppers

3. Name the 3 times when you were the most frightened.
I can't think of any.

4. Name 3 thriftshop items in your home.
3???? 3???????????????
Outside of underwear and edibles, I'm not sure I have anything new. Oh, except my washer/dryer and my mattress. Those are new.

5. Name 3 compelling reasons for the necessity of political reform.
too...much...thinking......must...go...eat...ice cream.......

6. Name the last 3 catalogues you received in the mail.
I have no idea, as they are all unsolicited and I throw them away [into the recycle bin]. Oo-oo: I get the Portland Art Museum catalogue of upcoming exhibits -- does that count? That's one.

7. Name 3 public figures you most admire.
Gah! Enough with the thinking!

Serena Joy said...

You don't like cantaloupe, Camille? I love it! I hate onions and peppers, though.:)

Camille Alexa said...

It's always the ONLY fruit in the 'fruit salads' in Texas. They might as well just put it on the menu as 'Big Bowl of Cantaloupe.'

I think I got burned out in the days before there were many non-meat options at restaurants.
