Oh Happy Day #28!

8/28 - Stolen Memes!!!

I nabbed this one from both Wendy Darling & Terry. Enjoy!

Random Meme...

What’s the greatest thing that happened to you today?
Besides the gift of life for another day? I got to help a man who lost his wife in April fulfill one of her fondest wishes. We’ll read her name on our Telethon on Monday. The only thing that could have made it better would be if she had lived long enough to hear it.

How many TRUE best friends do you have?
Several and I cherish them.

Would you rather get up early or sleep in?
Depends on what day it is. If it’s a work day then I prefer to get up early enough to get to work early. If it’s not a work day then I prefer to sleep in if I can.

Tell me about the shirt you’re wearing?
Burgandy with a light burgundy floral pattern and short sleeves.

What are you excited about right now?

Would you rather smile over a lie or cry over the truth?
Depends on the situation. There have been several times in my life when a lie was kinder to the person I told it to than the truth would have been.

What’s on your bedroom floor right now?
Two very cute dogs.

Who’s the last person you got into a argument with?
The bill collector that called for a co-worker today when I told him that he had reached a business and he needed to stop calling several times a day. He arrogantly informed me that he could call as many times a day as he would like and no one could stop. He also further informed me that by law I had to answer all his questions every time he called. I reminded him that by his own admission the call was being recorded and that it was illegal for him to misrepresent the law just to suit him. I also informed him that not only do I not have to talk to him, but the person that owes his company money doesn’t even have to talk to him. And then I went against my upbringing and hung up on the jerk. When he immediately called back, I dropped him into voicemail as soon as I heard his voice. The third time he managed to scream at me before I transferred him so I informed him that if he called back again today, this week, or even next week that I would speak to his supervisor and demand that the tape of all his calls today be pulled and reviewed. I then dropped him into voicemail again and he didn’t not call back. :D

Do you trust people?
More than I should usually.

If you could move away, no questions asked, where would you move?

Your favorite number?

Could you go a day without eating?
Not safely. I’m a diabetic & I take insulin.

How much do looks matter to you in a guy/girl?
Not much. Kindness and a sense of humor are most important to me.

Do you like anybody right now?
Almost everyone. :D

When was the last time you had your hair cut?
Not long after moving here in March. I’m way past due for a cut, but haven’t found a place I want to go to.

Sad. I’m not good with anger and it scares me. Even my own.

Does it take a lot to make you cry?
Not really.

What's the best feeling in the world?
Knowing that I’m loved.

Are you close with your mom?

I’d say my Mommy was about average. Strict about some things and not very strict about others.

Do you tell your parents everything?
Not really.

Name some fears you have:
Being too sick to take care of myself.

Does the thought of marriage scare you?
No. It terrifies me.

What’s your favorite season?
Winter. It’s never cold enough for me. :D

My brother a few days ago.

Sometimes, but I prefer shooting stars.

When you go to the beach do you swim or lay out more?
If you knew how pale I was, you’d know how silly the last half of this question is. I can only swim if it’s dark or I’m in the shade. So at the beach I general just find a shady spot to watch the ocean. I love the ocean. It’s very zen.

Who’s the last text message you received from and what did it say?
It was from my brother and it said, “I’m going to go with yes because they made a bee line to my room.” It was his response last night to my asking if the dogs were sleeping in his room.

Far too many things to mention in such a public way. :D

I’d love to have my ears pierced, but they stay infected so it’s a big no-no for me.

Yes, but I’m claustrophobic so it wasn’t as much fun as you would think. It was very cool though.

Ever eaten a bug?
Define bug. I’ve had escargot (snails), chocolate covered grasshoppers, and chocolate covered ants. Although that last one was not a smart thing since I’m allergic to ant bites, so eating 4 or 5 of them gave me a swollen tongue & sore throat for a few days.

Are you in a good mood?
Yup. Despite PMS. :D

Would you rather skydive or bungee jump?
I would LOVE to skydive, but that is on the list of things I can no longer do because of my bad liver. Who knew?

Yeah, they are cool. Not so much with the spiders though.

In theory, especially if they are full of or covered with fruit. But I don’t really eat them or pancakes because of the large amount of carbs in them.

Yes, I was 23 when I was diagnosed with insulin dependent diabetes.

What color are the walls in your bedroom?
We rent a townhome so it’s this kind of non-descript beige colour. It’s better than white though.

Are you named after a family member?
Yes, my middle name was my Grammy's middle name.

Pass because I’ve got a prescription for everything that would show up. :P

Yes, but I’m certainly not sharing that here.

Whip out my camera and take a picture. :D

Do you have a lot of candles in your room?
I have one, but I’ve never lit it in here. Too many fans going.

Are the files in your computer well organized or all over the place?
Home & work computers are EXTREMELY organized. I do have OCD after all.

Are there dogs barking in your neighborhood right now?
I don’t hear any, but I’m sure the ankle biter across the alley is yapping because he pretty much does that all the time. He’s cute though.

That was a loonnngg meme, I had to set aside seven minutes to read it.

That was good going on that bill colector. The people who do that job seem to have a real talent for evil and you made me happy, just reading about him getting a verbal tongue-lashing.

I've been told that lobsters are essential giant bugs, does that count?
