You Had a Fantastic Year!


Compared to most years, last year was definitely great.
Overall, you're living a much better life than you were twelve months ago.
And nothing is a better mark of a good year.
Here's to hoping next year is even better!

Not on purpose

Pretty lame actually, but it is still early.

You're blog is looking like a dictatorship: All the polls are closed! ;)

1. Won a chess tournament in 5th grade (K-8 competition). Won a 'no smoking' campaign contest in school in 4th grade. Won a speech contest in 3rd grade. Won a trip for two to a horse ranch once in the 80s. Won a weekend getaway in a raffle once.
2. Never ever ever ever
3. Would you think I was crazy if I thought of "You ain't nothing but a Hound Dog, crying all the time" upon reading your comment on Rosie O'Donnell?
4. Never ever ever ever
5. Never ever ever ever
6. Never ever ever ever...oh wait, I guess I was born. Hmmm...looks like it was Saturday...which explains why I'm so opposed to work.
7. I'm on vacation, how much better can it get?

Serena Joy said...

Thank you so much for your #3 answer, Kan. I was worried about myself but, I swear (Scout's Honor!), at that angle and the way her hair looked, I thought it was puffy Elvis.:) Don't worry a bit about #7; it'll steadily improve.

Kudos on all your #1 wins, VE. Clearly, you've got some luck going on. #3 -- nope, I wouldn't think you were crazy at all. That would be much akin to a pot calling a kettle black.:) Born on a Saturday? That probably ensures some decent mojo. Keep on enjoying your vacation!

1. Have you ever won a contest? If so, what did you win?
I'm a daily contestant in the Show of Life. I almost never win anything. Am I sounding more like Charlie Brown or Eeyore?

2. Do you buy lottery tickets on a regular basis?
Never.

3. Would you think I was crazy and/or blind if I told you I saw a picture of Rosie O'Donnell online yesterday and thought it was Elvis until I read the caption?
I wouldn't think you were blind, because that would defy logic.(?)

4. Have you ever, not including karaoke, sung in public?
After how many bottles of hooch?

5. Would you ever consider any type of purely cosmetic surgery?
Consider? Maybe. I don't think so. Having surgery sucks enough when it's non-elective.

6. On what day of the week were you born?
I don't know! Interesting. I'm sure I could find out online somehow (by entering the year & date). I do know I was born at 4:22 am. I still have my hospital baby bracelet. It's pink.

7. How's 2008 going for you so far?
Jury's still out. If I win a contest, things might look up. Did you read about the Michigan(?) couple who took their lotto ticket to the convenience store to cash it thinking they'd won $150, but the clerk had to explain he couldn't cash it 'cause it was really a $250,000 winner? Now there's a bang to start 2008. I still stand by Q#2.

1. Have you ever won a contest? If so, what did you win?

In 6th grade I won a couple little stuffed critters. My uncle got a little tipsy and ordered every magazine that was in the brochure making me a top seller. Imagine his surprise when he, a confirmed bachelor, started receiving Ladies Home Journal and Good Housekeeping.

Nope

3. Would you think I was crazy and/or blind if I told you I saw a picture of Rosie O'Donnell online yesterday and thought it was Elvis until I read the caption?

Hi Sherry...xoxoxbgxoxox

Serena Joy said...

Love your answers, Camille. BTW, yes, there are Web sites where you can find the date you were born. I had actually forgotten on what day of the week I was born (Wednesday) and found such a site last night. Interesting!:)

But /t., WHAT prizes? Come on, I need stuff to drool over.:) Re #3, I meant Presley, in his bloated-up days.:)

Wow, Pinks, getting your play produced was a major accomplishment. Kudos! Hey, I'm a Wednesday's child, too. Um, #7?! LOL.:)

LOL @ your #1, Miz Lucy. Re #7, I can't complain so far. I'm crossing my fingers that the pattern holds. And YOU take care of that foot. John Wayne could have broken his foot and kept on marching. You ain't John Wayne.:)

Hi, Galen.:) I know it, you lucky thing. You win stuff all the time. I could get a complex. LOL @ #3. I'm not sure which is worse, blind or brain damaged. Aw, another Saturday baby. Clearly, Saturday babies are blessed with extra good luck.:)

Oh, and VE, I'll get off my duff and think up a new poll. I don't want to turn the place into a little banana republic.:)

Little Wing said...

Now why is it so easy to believe that Mr-Gman has won lots of trivia contests!

I won tickets to the ice follies from a radio station

Yes I do buy lottery tickets !

Actually Elvis is alive and well, reincarnated into Rosie!

I sang in Choir in school and performed at a lot of town functions.
Also sang Christmas Carols at a Retirement home in Girl Scouts.

I think I would be afraid of cosmetic surgery!

Wednesday

Going great so far!!!!

Queenie said...

1.Yes, but its that long ago I've forgotten what I won and what it was for.

2.No, now and again, if my right hand itches.

3.What do you mean think your crazy, I know you are.

4.Yes all the time,I am crazy!!!

5. It would depend, if it was painful or really bothered me then maybe.

6. I don't know, thats something I'm going to find out.

7. May sound strange, but I started of with so much enthusiasm, yet it all seems very slow at the moment.

AVERAGE, New year. A new year is a perfect reason to give yourself a fresh start!!!!

Charles said...

1. Have you ever won a contest? If so, what did you win? The only thing I seem to win is the fight against death, and I know eventually I'll lose that.

2. Do you buy lottery tickets on a regular basis? Does the sun quit shining at night?

3. Would you think I was crazy and/or blind if I told you I saw a picture of Rosie O'Donnell online yesterday and thought it was Elvis until I read the caption? No, but you probably are helping helping her ego, he was considered good looking, she...

4. Have you ever, not including karaoke, sung in public? Would you think I was crazy?

5. Would you ever consider any type of purely cosmetic surgery? Does a brain transplant count?

6. On what day of the week were you born? I don't remember.

7. How's 2008 going for you so far? I liked the way 2007 was going this time of year, but its good to be working.

smarmoofus said...

Yay, rules! I've visited before and was intrigued enough to want to answer the questions, but I wasn't sure where I should do it. Thanks! I'll answer here so you don't have to go looking for me:

1. Have you ever won a contest? If so, what did you win?
Yes! Well, bunches when I was in highschool... math team. I was such a dork. But then about 5 years ago, I entered a cable major news network-sponsored contest at their website and I was the grand prize winner! I got a 42" plasma TV back when those were going for about $5k, a trip for two to Detroit (airfare and accomodations at the Ritz Carlton) to see a taping of one of their shows and attend the VIP afterparty (great food!), and $500 in spending money for the trip. I took my sister with me.

2. Do you buy lottery tickets on a regular basis?
No, but I have bought some on rare occasions. Probably three or four times in my life.

3. Would you think I was crazy and/or blind if I told you I saw a picture of Rosie O'Donnell online yesterday and thought it was Elvis until I read the caption?
*lips twitch* No. Not crazy or blind. Don't tell Rosie I said that.

4. Have you ever, not including karaoke, sung in public?
No! I don't hate anybody enough to do that. Oh, wait... does singing in school programs as a kid count? No solo, though.

5. Would you ever consider any type of purely cosmetic surgery?
I would consider it, yeah. But I'm a high-risk candidate for surgery, so I would never follow through with it. Put my life in jeopardy just to look a little better? There's too much to fix to risk my life over the little things.

6. On what day of the week were you born?
Ugh. I have to look that up... *googles*... My sources tell me it was a Wednesday.

7. How's 2008 going for you so far?
I'm slowing getting over this horrible head/chest cold. Things are looking up.

1. Have you ever won a contest? If so, what did you win? I don't think I have ever won a contest..

2. Do you buy lottery tickets on a regular basis? No

3. Would you think I was crazy and/or blind if I told you I saw a picture of Rosie O'Donnell online yesterday and thought it was Elvis until I read the caption?
I don't think you are crazy, but I would sure like to see that photo...email me..

4. Have you ever, not including karaoke, sung in public?
I was in a talent show in 6th grade with 2 friends and sang "Leaving On A Jet Plane" and "Spinning Wheel" in matching coulotte outfits (homemade by Moms)...Yikes!

5. Would you ever consider any type of purely cosmetic surgery?
yes

6. On what day of the week were you born? Not sure

7. How's 2008 going for you so far?
Early returns are decent!


Happy New year Serena!!

Serena Joy said...

LOL, Little Wing. Poor Elvis. He probably would have kicked his habits and stayed alive if he'd known what was going to happen. I hope you get THE winning lottery ticket someday soon, kiddo. Wednesday's Children do have good luck,, you know.:)

LOL @ your #3, Queenie. I knew you were onto me.:) Best of luck with getting off to a new start. I think you're lucky enough to do it. Shoot, it'll probably turn out that you were born on a Wednesday.:-)

I guess we're all going to lose that battle of #1, Charles. Eventually. Maybe. I -- I helped stroke Rosie's ego? Somebody slap me! If you answer yes to #4, I absolutely will not think you're crazy! I will want details.:-) If you ever find a doctor who does brain transplants, let me know; maybe we can get a group rate.

Hi, Smarmoofus! If I haven't said so before, I just love your name. I have to confess what I did. Wednesdays are memes and Thursdays are just time spent with an Inquisitor. I meant to belatedly post the rules on the Wednesday meme and I wondered what happened to it and why I had to go back and redo it. Now I know. I accidentally added it to the Q&A. Small mishap involving misfiring neurons, no doubt. But onward!

I am in awe of your #1 answer! Wow! That IS great luck. Oh, well, your #6 tells me why -- Wednesday! #3, unh-unh, I won't tell Rosie. She'd probably hurt me.:) Hope your cold feels better soon. Alas, there's a lot of that going around just now.

Leelee, I wanted to post that picture beneath the question. I Googled and Googled for it, but never could find THAT picture.:( Love your answer to #4! I loved to be in talent shows when I was a kid, though I had no talent. LOL.

1. Have you ever won a contest? If so, what did you win?

Yes, when I was four I won a coloring contest-I think we won money? I don't remember...
I also won a radio contest where you had to guess the sound. I got a Madonna CD out of that.

2. Do you buy lottery tickets on a regular basis?

NO.NEVER. I hate gambling, and am too materialistic to throw away good money on the lottery.

3. Would you think I was crazy and/or blind if I told you I saw a picture of Rosie O'Donnell online yesterday and thought it was Elvis until I read the caption?

NO.NEVER.Ever.

4. Have you ever, not including karaoke, sung in public?

Yes. And I'd do it again. Bwahahaha! :D

5. Would you ever consider any type of purely cosmetic surgery?

Yes, when I'm really tired, I have a lazy eye and I want it fixed because I'm so self-concious about it, I have really bad eye contact with people.

6. On what day of the week were you born?

A Monday :)

7. How's 2008 going for you so far?

It.Freakin'.Rocks!

5. No.

6. I don't know.

7. So far, so good, but it haas only been four days.

Serena Joy said...

Cool #1 wins, Snow! Judging by some of the #4 answers, I think we have the makings of a rocking girl band around here. LOL. #5 -- yes, if it's bothering you, you should definitely consider having it corrected.

Thank goodness for your #3 answer, Mike. I was beginning to think I was the only one who saw that.:) Four days is a pretty good litmus test. It IS going to be a great year.:-)
