Serena Joy said...

Such great mirth, /t.! I'm happy you're so happy. And what's not to be happy about? It's THURSDAY! Happy Thursday!:)

Kan, I'm cringing at your #7, and nodding my head in agreement at #8. Some things, it's just best not to mess with. So sorry to hear the kitty-kids don't enjoy your singing.:)

My goodness, Bilbo, you're ALWAYS up early. #6 -- I keep meaning to obtain that title, and keep forgetting. #8 -- I'm of the same opinion. Really good definitions today, and those words weren't easy, either. I DO know what a Filofax is. Do I get the point?

Clearly, you enjoyed the hell out of these questions, VE. So much laughter! You know, if Kan can be convinced to share his slave, you could get your rickshaw on the road.:)

Skunky, why on earth do you get up in the middle of the night?! You must have to go to work early, but ... up so early on your days off? LOL at your 4 and 7. Good luck on that transporter thing.:)

Your sleep habits sound about like mine, Pinks. I usually wake with the sun, but have an alarm clock for backup. #8 - LOL. #10 - of course, I am! I'm envious of your massage. Have a nice chat and sleep well.:)

puerileuwaite said...

1. What time do you get up on work days?

Just before the boss gets in, or an hour before it's time to go home, which ever happens first.

2. How late do you sleep on the weekends?

Sleep is for wussies.

3. When was the last time you saw the inside of a church?

Before the last Vatican Council ruled against it.

4. How long has it been since you got a raise at work?

My boss doesn't like our "partnership" to be about money. She wants it to be about friendship. So I'm too embarrassed to bring it up.

5. If applicable, how old is your youngest child?

Seems like every pup in this town resembles me, so it's almost impossible to tell. Let's play it safe and assume that conception counts ... so, 1-hour, then.

6. Have you bought a book in the last 2 weeks? If so, what was it?

"How to Live Forever" by George Carlin (R.I.P. buddy)

7. When was the last time you cleaned out your refrigerator?

It's usually cool to my advances, so we haven't attained that level of intimacy yet.

8. When was the last time you cleaned behind your refrigerator?

It definitely wouldn't go for that. I'd have to rent one who's into those sorts of activities.

9. When did you last wash your car?

The last time the neighbor left her hose unattended.

10. What are you wearing right now?

Was that YOU who keeps calling?

11. Where are you right now?

In the tub with a long extension cord plugged into a standard (non-GFI) outlet hooked to this laptop.

12. Do you sing in the shower?

Yes.

If you do:

(a) Are you any good?

I like to think I am. The ladies seem to pretend that they like it.

(b) Do you enjoy it?

Not unless the lady enjoys it as much or more than me.

(c) Does anyone ever ask you to stop?

All the time. I chalk it up to sensory overload, and being too skilled.

13. In light of high fuel prices, if you had to choose some mode of transportation in lieu of an automobile, what would it be?

Helium balloon.

Serena Joy said...

Your outfit sounds cute, Roxan. That's such a bummer about your car. Any word yet from the insurance company about repairing/replacing it?

#1 sounds like a pretty good deal, Puggy. You'd better keep the boss happy and hang onto that job. #2 -- hey, I resent that! I love my sleep and I'm no wussie. #5 -- who's getting pick of the litter? #8 -- yeah, you do have to be careful, can't just spring it on an unsuspecting fridge. #10 -- damn it, you have caller ID, don't you?:)

quid said...

1. What time do you get up on work days?

5:30 a.m.

2. How late do you sleep on the weekends?

sometimes until 8

3. When was the last time you saw the inside of a church?

oh, come now!

4. How long has it been since you got a raise at work?

I got a raise at my last job in April, 2007, then my job was eliminated (how many times can that happen to one woman in a lifetime???). I'm happy to say that at the new job we are counting down to raise date.... July 19. Yes, I will buy you some shoes.


5. If applicable, how old is your youngest child?

22! How did that happen? I was a child bride.

Have I bought 10? Or 12? Something like that. The last one was "Child 44". Great book!


7. When was the last time you cleaned out your refrigerator?

3 weeks ago.


8. When was the last time you cleaned behind your refrigerator?

In 1993 in CT, our old refrigerator bit the dust. I was forced to clean behind it before the guys installed the new one. Now, I just move whenever I have to clean.


9. When did you last wash your car?

6 weeks ago. I can't afford it now because I rarely have enough money for gas. :)


10. What are you wearing right now?

Jeans and T

11. Where are you right now?

At my computer, silly.


12. Do you sing in the shower? If
you do:
(a) Are you any good?
(b) Do you enjoy it?
(c) Does anyone ever ask you to stop?

Well, of course! And I enjoy every last, cracked off key note. But no one else does.

Easy. Helicopter.

G-Man said...

DAMN..!!!!!
Missed being first by mere hours!!!

/t....You'll get your come-uppence!


Sherry, are you just gonna stand by and and let me get Pinata'ed by your club-wielding minions?

I'm almost Non-Plussed!!!!
xox

Serena Joy said...

Re #4, Quid, I love 'ya, darlin'! Shoes!! Seriously, I hope you get a whopping good raise. #6 - I'm not surprised at your numbers. It's a wonder either of us has any money left over for food after we indulge our book habits. #5 - geez, where does time go? I've "known" that boy since he was a kid. #12 - as long as YOU enjoy it, that's all that matters.:)

"Almost" don't get it, Galen. You have to be either plussed or non. I'll speak to the minions, but very gently. I'd hate to see you turned into a piƱata, but I'm scared of clubs, too.:-)

Corn Dog said...

Too many questions. I'm in my pajamas. I bought them at Walgreens. Yeah. I like to buy clothes at drugstores. Say it. I'm cheap. I don't drive and can't sing. Crow noises scare the neighbors.

Serena Joy said...

Jammies are jammies, CD. As long as they feel good, doesn't matter where they come from. I can't sing, either. I don't really care about the neighbors.:-)

TRY to sleep 'til at least 7:00 tomorrow, Snow. Congrats on your raise a month ago. #8 - my fridge has wheels, but I still use the excuse that I can't move it. LOL. No Metrolink here, either. And alas, I lack the coordination for rollerblades.:)
