A Good Book and a…chain tag?

July 8, 2007 at 11:48 pm 13 comments

Thanks everybody for your kind comments on my last post.  An update on R…he was so out of his head he didn’t go to prison but to the psych ward of the hospital.   

Well here is a new twist on sneaking details out of a blogger… from Kat in California…hey, I used to be Kat from California…away we go: 

 INSTRUCTIONS: Remove the blog in the top spot from the following list and bump everyone up one place. Then add your blog to the bottom slot, like so:
1. Skittles
2. Last Minute Lyn

3. melsdream
4. wading through my stream of consciousness
5. kat’s random thoughts

Next select five people to tag and tell them:
more about this later.Now answer the following questions:
What were you doing 10 years ago?
Celebrating the impending birth of my first grandgirl, Jazzmin, while mourning the decline of her mother, my daughter.  Traveling Ohio with Princess who was serving her year representing the community as Pottery Princess. 

What were you doing 1 year ago?
Deciding to quit my day job and write full time.

Five snacks you enjoy:
Red delicious apples so cold they make your teeth hurt
chocolate covered raisons
oatmeal walk aways
strawberries and bananas with milk
movie popcorn
Five songs to which you know all the lyrics:
Joshua Giraffe (“my mother never licks me, even when I’m sticky.” Cracked my kids up when they were little, cracks my grandgirls up now.  You rock Raffi)
Go Your Own Way by Fleetwood Mac
6th Avenue Heartache by the Wallflowers
Just as I am (Baptist Hymn Book)
Three Babies (Sinead) I’m detecting a definate lack of culture in my life…hmm…

Five things you would do if you were a millionaire:
let Pap retire
college tuition for the grandgirls

generous donations to the local theatre, woman’s network and library
pay off my kids college loans
all the rest straight into my publishing company so it could toddle instead of crawl

Five bad habits:
eating junk

nail flicking

Backseat driving.  I am so wickedly consistent at telling everyone how they should be driving, nobody will go anywhere with me unless I’m the one driving. 

Five things you like doing:
mucking around in the garden
attempting to paint
parties – planning and having

Five things you would never wear again:
a bikini
off the shoulder dresses
turtlenecks (who needs three chins?)
anything made of gold lame

hair parted down the middle

Five favorite toys:
this computer (versus my old one or the one at the office)
the wooden box that holds all my oil paints, brushes and other painting paraphernalia
the writing software that organizes my books exactly the way I used to organize them by hand.
the hat box that holds all the glitter, bits of ribbon, buttons and knicky knacky things we use to make masks.
the gazelle – definately detecting a lack of dimension in my life…hmmm….

Okay, the rest of the rules are to tag five people, and I have a personal policy not to tag anyone…so if you’ll play, tag yourself and let me know, I’ll give you major props and brag incessently about your good sportsmanship.

The punishment for bragging about my good health in past posts has been harshly applied.  I’ve spent most of this week with everything from the neck up infected, including the tonsils that survived childhood intact.  Who knew that ear aches were this freakin painful???

Looking for a good book?  Dean Koontz, The Good Man.  One plot cheat, but since I couldn’t figure out a way to get him past it either, I’m forgiving him for it.  Dean did a cool thing with this book, one of his main characters was named after the winner of his auction for animal rescue.  How many copies of this book do you think she bought?  This is light summer reading, predictable but engaging. 

Off to improve my life through prescription pharmaceuticals….

    I am sitting on my patio just a few feet from the Pacific ocean. I am typing with one hand and blowing my nose with the other. Allergies — including itchy ears.

  • 2. John Linna  |  July 9, 2007 at 2:40 am

    If those ears get worse be sure you see a doctor.

    Dr. John – Already done, I went to the Doctor on Tuesday and he provided me with antibiotics.

    Seamus – I’m working on it!

    Sorry you’re feeling under the weather. Yeah, those earaches are a bitch. I just finished two weeks worth of antibiotics – which I’d have skipped for the sinus infection – but sorely needed for the ears. (My Gram used to say she would rather have a baby than an earache!)

  • 7. Nessa  |  July 11, 2007 at 1:30 am

    I hope you feel better soon.

  • 8. Catch  |  July 11, 2007 at 6:40 am

  • 10. Jay  |  July 11, 2007 at 2:37 pm

    This was great, Kat. I love your Raffi-appreciation.

  • 11. gautami  |  July 11, 2007 at 5:56 pm

    I used to have earaches. Not any more. Thank God!

  • 12. MrsJoseGoldbloom  |  July 12, 2007 at 5:56 pm

    Great meme kat. I love Dean Koontz and I’ve been wanting to pick that book up but haven’t done it yet.

The free-lance writer is the person who is paid per piece or per word or perhaps. (Robert Benchley)

Welcome to My Neighborhood!

Shortly after I learned to use a spoon, I learned to use a pencil. Crippled by shyness as a child, I found that the things I couldn't say out loud, I could say with a pen, and then a typewriter. The shyness was overcome with education and age...but the need to write has never left me.
