Aesthetic themed list

1. when did you last sing to yourself?

Last night. My current situation has me now has me feeling a …. crazy. I have been crying myself to sleep, and just in a horrible mental state. Sometimes recalling songs that used to  make me  happy, help me calm myself. 

2. if a crystal ball could tell you the truth about anything, what would you want to know? If I will ever be mentally or physically okay again

3. what is the greatest accomplishment of your life? 4o years baking. Sadly, I have nothing to show for it. For anything.

4. what is the first happy memory that comes to mind, recent or otherwise? Getting Spikey.

6. do you feel you had a happy childhood? most of the time. 

7. would you ever have a deep conversation with a stranger and open up to them? I’ll be calling a therapist recommended by a friend, I think I’ll be opening up to a stranger.

8. what would you title the autobiography of your life so far? Not that it fees like it these days, but … God’s Been With Me Through It All. 

9. how do you feel about tattoos and piercings? explain. Ear piercing is for me, okay. Tattoos, I love. My last ones have been white, as to not draw attention. I found one that I like but my husband remarked ” don’t you think you have enough for 60″. Well, no. No one can see any of the 9 that I have, except those people that have dealt with me in the hospital. But in his 70’s he had a neck tat, a few spiders webs, some on his neck. All Red and Orange and Black. So, you do your shit, I’ll do mine.

I would like to receive a letter saying ‘you’ve been nice, but you don’t have to do that anymore.’…. Here’s what is going to happen… he will be released from prison next month… Aunt Mary, I need…. and could you do this , could you take me here… my husband does not know Brian, but has stressed he is not welcome to being funded anymore. I guess when I was trying to be nice, and help, I didn’t realize it would snowball as it has. He asks for money or stuff regularly always saying ‘i swear I won’t ask for anything else’. I started out doing this for Karlie. I ended up looking like an idiot. I have a knack for that. 

13. do you have a desk/workspace and how is it organised/not organised?Yes… it looks like my mind feels these days. 

14. what’s your starbucks order, and who would you trust to order for you, if anyone?I can’t afford starbucks. I go to McD or Dunkin.

Saturday Nine… Valentine

Valentine

Welcome to Saturday 9. What we’ve committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do “random questions,” so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don’t have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today’s meme!

Saturday 9: Valentine (1993)
 
Unfamiliar with this week’s tune? Hear it here.

This song was specially chosen for the Saturday 9 closest to Valentine’s Day.

1) This is a love song written by Willie Nelson for his young son. Have you sent any Valentines this year to someone you love who isn’t a romantic partner? My great niece and nephews. 

2) Today that little boy, Lukas, is a singer/songwriter who wrote eight of the songs for the 2018 A Star Is Born soundtrack. Have you seen the Bradley Cooper/Lady Gaga big screen romance? Who? I’m sorry, I have been out of it for quite awhile.

3) On Valentine’s Day in 1876, Alexander Graham Bell patented the first telephone. Who did you most recently speak to on the phone? My niece Briana

4) Penicillin was also introduced on Valentine’s Day (in 1929). When you get a shot, do you look away when the needle touches your skin? I’ve been a raging diabetic for many years. I can handle anything.

5) According to legend, a gift of red roses signifies love and romance. When did you last purchase flowers or plants? Did you buy them for yourself, or someone else? Hahahaha, since I am now homebound, I bought some seeds online and grow my own. My entertainment. 

6) This week’s artist, Willie Nelson, can trace his family tree back to the Revolutionary War. Captain John Nelson served with the Minutemen back in 1776. If you could go back in time to witness any great moment in American history, which would you choose? I can’t think of anything right now. I DID remember to do Saturday Nine… baby steps.

7) Before he became a musical success, Willie was a door-to-door salesman, peddling first Bibles, then vacuum cleaners. INC magazine tells us that the traits of successful salespeople include resilience and good listening skills. Do you think you’d make a good sales person? No

8) In 1993, when this song came out, Saved by the Bell aired its series finale. Crazy Sam likes to tease her brother because he once admitted to her that he has seen all 86 episodes of this teen sitcom. Is there a show that you believe you’ve seen every episode?

Law and Order. Blue Bloods. and Fraiser, The Office….

9) Random question — We’re having milkshakes! What’s your favorite flavor? Strawberry.

Backfield In Motion

Backfield in Motion

Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we’ve committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do “random questions,” so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don’t have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love to answer the questions, however, and here is today’s questions!

Saturday 9: Backfield in Motion (1969)

Unfamiliar with this week’s tune? Hear it here.

1) This week’s Saturday 9 has a football theme because there’s a big game Sunday. Will you be watching?

Are the Browns in in it? No and No.

2) The Super Bowl is the second-largest day for food consumption in the US, second only to Thanksgiving. What’s on your menu this weekend?

Something simple. My husband has a bad back and i have no Knee… So, quick and simple is our rule of thumb!

3) Super Bowl Sunday is the #1 day for consuming guacamole. When did you most recently eat something with avocado in it?

Dogs can’t eat Avocado, so I only it it if we are dining Mexican OUT. 

4) The Pro Football Hall of Fame is in Canton, OH. Have you ever visited Canton, or any other city in Ohio?

I live in Ohio! My niece worked at the Hall of Fame for a year during college. Now she is an agent for The Browns, so Cleveland all the time. I have been everywhere from Marietta ( b0ttom of Ohio) To Ashtabula ( Lake Erie). Geneva on the Lake. Family in Columbus…

5) This song mentions different moves that football players — and, it seems, girlfriends — can make that will result in penalties. What’s the last rule you broke? What were the consequences?

I’m a little confused here..

6) In 1969, the year this song was popular, the Colts lost to the New York Jets in Super Bowl III. The game is famous because of all the hype leading up to it, including Joe Namath “guaranteeing” his underdog Jets would win. Tell us about a time when you felt like an underdog.

It started on my first day of first grade. So, September 64. I was the lone red head in the first grade… Freckle Face Strawberry. Carrot Top, Raggedy Ann, Ginger…. see?

7) This week’s featured duo, Mel and Tim, are cousins from Mississippi. Tell us about one of your cousins. Her name is Susan. She  lives in the ATL. My sister and I try and make it down there once a year. Susan has sent us ‘help’ so we can order dinner out, several times since I have lost my knee. She was the one I looked up to my entire life. When Jim Croce died, I was home with chicken pox and called her CRYING! I was in middle school then. She came in her cool little VW Bug and took me shopping at the mall and out for lunch!! 

8) The song is about a man who catches his girl cheating and he just won’t put up with it. In romance, do you find it easy to forgive and forget?

ONCE, one time in my life I had romance. But… I chose to give it up because even when I was 50 something, I wasn’t putting out for ANYONE. Gone through too much to stress when I knew he was coming to pick me up. I’m not a romantic person. I’m a great WALL BUILDER all around my heart.

9) Random question: You’ve collected a box of gently-used items to donate to a second hand store. What would it be most likely to contain: clothes, housewares, or books/video/music? Books. Videos. CDs… are those out of style? Our 16 Terrain didn’t even have a cd player! Next vehicle is going to be an Equinox. My thought is maybe it might  have a player .

Saturday 9: My Favorite Things (2018)

Unfamiliar with this week’s tune? Hear it here.
1) This week’s artist, Jennie Abrahamson, is very happy living in Stockholm, but she refers to Paris as “a flirt.” She enjoys her time there so much she always wants to return. Is there a place you’ve visited that tugs at your heart and imagination, tempting you to return?

Alpharetta GA.  I have such wonderful family there

2) Jennie has said her music has been heavily influenced by 80s pop, which was popular in her early teen years. Are your favorite songs the ones you listened to when you were growing up?

Most  definitely

3) “My Favorite Things” is from The Sound of Music. Crazy Sam’s high school claim to fame was playing Sister Margaretta in the senior class production. Though not a big part, her performance lives on because relatives love embarrassing her with pictures of her in an especially unflattering nun’s habit. Who took an embarrassing photo of you? What were you doing?

cant think of any off hand. I’m sure there are plety

4) The lyrics celebrate “brown paper packages tied up in strings.” What was in the last box you received in the mail?

Eddie Bauer fleece throw. omgosh. now I want to buy each of my nieces one

5) It mentions doorbells and sleighbells. What’s the most recent bell or alarm that you heard?

My alarm. I don’t really ever need to set an alarm unless its for doctors visits, but I just wanted to get up earlier and shower in the morning

 
6) This song has nice things to say about cold weather, specifically snowflakes and mittens. What do you like about winter?

I like the change. I’m not big on snow since living in CA, but I do love the change in seasons

7) Dog bites and bee stings are singled out as things that can leave us feeling sad. What’s most recently given you the blues?

my health. 

8) In 2018, when this song was released, Roger Federer won the Australian Open. Are you good with a racket?

Noooooooo

9) Random question — Your local zoo announced the hatching of three snowy owlets. All males. You won the honor of naming them. Go ahead.

Hi! I’m your host Bev Sykes of the blog “Funny the World“. . Welcome to Sunday Stealing. This feature originated and published on WTIT: The Blog.

Im safe to say the Planet Earth works for me.

Well, when I finally got my phone back, and went through texts. None. What if I died used to be my only what if. Now I know, they wouldn’t even know, or think about it.

Sorry my page is kind of messed up. I’m not doing so great on my laptop. I cannot sit on a chair though to do it on my desktop!

65 Love Affair

Unfamiliar with this week’s tune? Hear it here.

1) The first line of this song is, “I was a car hop.” Car hops used to take orders and bring diners food to eat in their cars. Today, the drive through lane has pretty much replaced car hops. Think about the last time you went to a fast food restaurant. Did you order at the counter or at the drive through window?

DRIVE THRU.

2) Mr. Davis sings that his girlfriend was “bad with her pom-poms.” Presumably she was a cheerleader. Share one of your school’s cheers.

I wish I could! Too many years have passed and lack of interest …. you know

4) During his performing days, Paul Davis sported a full beard and flowing hair. We’re using that to check your powers of observation and recollection. Think of the last man you spoke to. Who was he? Describe his hair, and tell us whether he was clean shaven.  

That would be my husband.. Long grey hair, long goatee and we use a blond shampoo and our greys just sparkle.

5) Paul Davis was born in Meridian, MS, and that’s where he returned to when he went into semi-retirement in 1982. Meridian’s biggest employer is the Naval Air Station in Meridian. Do you know anyone who is currently in, or employed by, the military? 

Thankfully no! One of my cousin’s kids served and to be honest, I was scared every day, but not Gabe!

6) He was a pool player and a golfer. Which sport are you better at?

These days I don’t walk. Ive been homebound for months, and will be for months to come.

7) Sadly, he died in 2008, on the day after his 60th birthday. His best friend remembers him as “a homebody,” who enjoyed staying up long into the night with his friends, playing and listening to music. Describe your perfect way to spend an evening.

Well, like I mentioned I am home bound, so my husband and I are Perry Mason , Matlock and Netflix fans, these days. So thats what we do. I am unable to walk, so basically I sit on the couch or lay in bed and yell his name when its time for meds

8) The publishing rights to “’65 Love Affair,” as well as Paul Davis’ bigger hits (“Cool Night” and “I Go Crazy”), are owned by another Paul — Paul McCartney. Sir Paul’s MPL Publishing Company has made him a very rich man, and Paul says that’s because he chose to invest in music, something he loves. What about you? If you were to invest in a business or industry you love, which would you choose?

Well, I think Proctor and Gamble has made money for my brother, but if I were to invest money, I think it would be in Handles Ice Cream, or perhaps a successful SoCal chain that seems to be going national… but thats me.

9) Random question –You’re at a party and one of your host’s best friends is a real egghead who tries to draw you into a conversation about paradigmatic counter existentialism. Would you: a) just listen politely while letting your mind wander; b) admit you don’t know what the hell he’s talking about; c) explain why you personally feel that the counter existential paradigm just adds unnecessary complexity to the individual’s search for meaning?

I can BS the best of them.. so probably C !!!!

Black Magic Woman

Black Magic Woman

Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we’ve committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do “random questions,” so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don’t have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today’s meme!

Saturday 9: Black Magic Woman (1970)

Unfamiliar with this week’s tune: Hear it here.

1) Black is this week’s signature color because Friday, November 23, was “Black Friday,” when retailers cut their prices and consumers flock to the stores. Did you score any “Black Friday” bargains?
I’m not much into shopping these days. When I see something on Amazon or Etsy, I snag it up. I have a really hard time being around crowds. I have to say though, I headed out to the Boardman Walmart today, and although 224 was packed, Walmart was like any other day. Praise the Lord! 
2) On busy shopping days,  carts often litter parking lots. After loading your items into your car, are you careful to return your shopping cart to the store or the designated cart receptacle?
I put them where they belong. I  try to grab as many as I can to clean up the lot. And I take a cart from the lot as my own, too. 
3) Who on your gift list is hardest to buy for?
All of my family. My sister and brother have everything they want, my nieces don’t care for what I buy them… especially if its clothes, and my greats, well I could wrap Christmas lights in paper and a bow and they would be happy!! Plus, I don’t have much in the moola department, so that makes it tough too. 
4) Feasting and football are also popular Thanksgiving weekend pastimes. Do your Thursday-Sunday plans include enjoying leftovers or watching a game?
Since my mom and dad passed away, nothing holiday does anything for me. Fortunately or maybe not, my husband is the same. So Thursday was just a Thursday and Sunday, will be just a Sunday. Sadly. I used to love Thanksgiving. Things change.
5) Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade is an annual event. It began in 1924 as a local event in New York. Today it’s nationally televised. Did you watch it?
No, I washed clothes and cleaned the house. 
6) What did you give thanks for on Thanksgiving 2018?
In my prayers, I thank God for my family and my few close friends. As I did again this past Thursday.   I truly am thankful for those who understand me.
7) At the first Thanksgiving, there were no forks. Pilgrims ate with spoons and knives, and forks didn’t become popular until the 18th century. Think about your Thanksgiving place setting. Did you have both a salad and a dinner fork?
Nah, I made a spiral ham and we  picked. 
8) Pies are a popular Thanksgiving dessert. What kind of pie did you enjoy? Or did you have ice cream? Or did you skip dessert?
I bought a rather tasteless apple pie from Aldis. Paul hated it, but I thought it was ok. Missing salt though. I almost baked! But I have been making candies nuts and dog biscuits for the last 3 weeks to sell. So I’m done for awhile. 
9) This week’s featured band, Santana, was named for its founder, Carlos Santana. He was born in Mexico. When at a Mexican restaurant, what do you usually order?
Chimichangas and refried beans. If I have a couple bucks and its not time for my insulin, I’ll order and nurse a margarita
Chimichangas
