Sunday Stealing: Sizzle

From Sunday Stealing

The Sizzle Says Meme

1. If money were no object, what would you be doing with your life?

A. I'd be going to doctors in a major city to try to get well, I suppose. And if that was successful, I wouldn't mind traveling and seeing some of the world.
2. Money is just that - an object, so why aren’t you doing it?

A. Because I don't have it.
3. What’s better: horses or cows?

A. We raise beef cattle on a farm, so cows, of course.
4. What do you think the secret to happiness is?

A. Wanting what you have and loving yourself for who you are.
5. When was the last time you had a dream that you either remember well or did not want to awake from? Can you share a bit?

A. I tend to have nightmares or night terrors. According to my journal, this was the last dream that I wrote about:

I dreamed my mother was screaming at me because I wasn't working, that I needed to find a job, that everyone was a better person than I could ever be because I wasn't working, and there was a big huge black snake writhing across the kitchen floor, and I was screaming for someone to help me, and I ended up opening a window but it was a big long drop to the ground. All I could see was darkness and I couldn't even see the bottom of the hole I was falling into.
I woke in a cold sweat, breathing heavily.
6. When you were a little kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

A. At various times I wanted to be an archeologist, a geologist, and the person who discovered what was behind the Bermuda Triangle. I also wanted to be an astronomer so I could study aliens. Mostly, though, I wanted to be a writer.
7. Complete this statement: Love is . . . higher than a mountain, love is thicker than water. Wait a second, I think that's an Andy Gibbs song. Oops. Something more original? Love is the epitome of humanity, and the savior of morality. How's that?

8. Can you tell a good story?

A. I am a writer, so I hope so. I think I write stories better than I speak them orally, however.
9. Can you remember your last daydream? What was it about?

A. Since the new season of Game of Thrones comes out tonight (April 12), I have been spending some time in Westeros, imaging various outcomes to remaining characters.
10. If you were to thank someone today, who would you thank?

A. I would thank my husband for putting up with me, my physical therapist for sending me a funny but caring email reminding me of what I am supposed to be doing this weekend, my friend Brenda for having lunch with me, and my friend Teresa for coming by to see me Friday.

11. If you could be anyone's mojo, whose would you want to be, and why? (For those you do not know what mojo is, it's personal magnetism; charm.)

A. I can't imagine why I would want someone else's mojo. However, I think Oprah, Ellen DeGeneres, and Stevie Nicks are all charming. Maybe I could have something that wraps up the three of them?

  1. And now you are quoting Andy Gibbs. You're next journal entry will be about being kidnapped and made to see his last concert film... :)

  2. I particularly like your last answer.

  3. I would never let myself dream again if I had that dream, Yikes!

  4. Holy crap, that was some dream! If I was with the giant snake I'd have taken my chances with the window. {{shudder}}

  5. That is one scary dream. I hate snakes!

  6. What a horrible night terror--dream! Holy Criminy! and it made me remember a very bad dream, too. Should have read this first and been a lot less boring!

    Hope you soon get proper medical treatment and get this all behind you.
