CONGRATULATIONS, CALICO2222!!

I chose you for the honor of spotlight member of the week!

Before you decide to do away with me, let me assure you that it's not that bad! It's actually kinda fun!

I couldn't decide who I wanted to choose, so I picked your name out of a hat. I wanted to be fair about it.

I'll ask my questions a little later. I know everyone's anxiously awaiting to know just whom they can torture this week, so I wanted to get that out of the way. But don't worry: it won't be long before Coolcat comes along to start the proceedings!

Have fun!!

Ohhh...I hate the spotlight, but I've tortured enough people so I guess it's my turn!

Coolcat:

1.- ¿Do you to know México? I have never been there but would LOVE to go someday!

2.- ¿Wich part exactly?

3.- Have you ever hearded about Mérida Yucatán México???? Is the place where I´m live! As you can see in yucatán is Chichen Itza one of the New 7 wonders of the world!
Here´s the link my friend….http://www.yucatantoday.com/index.php

I heard of it because you live there!

4.- Can you speak spanish?
No hablo espanol. Seriously, I took 3 years of spanish in high school and can only remember how to ask "quantas banos in su casa". Oh, and my name is esperanza.

5.- Do you have some CD of Spanish music? do you like it? I like it but don't have any CDs. It always makes me feel good and crave tequilla!

6.- Have you ever to watched a Mexican Movie? ( I mean with Spanish Dialogs?) No. English movies confuse me enough!

7.-Do you like the Mexican Food?( do you have any preference for example: burritos, Tacos, rice & beans, etc?) Love tacos and burritoes.

8.-Do you like the Tequila?...or else Mexican Alcoholic beverage?
Tequila shots!

9.- Have you ever to sleeped in a hammock? no...I probably would never get out!

10.- Have you ever to saw the traditional mexican clothes? Only in pictures.

11.- Do you to know Cancun Mexico? ( Is a beach) I've never been there but my best friend was there and had a blast! "What happens in Cancun, stayed in Cancun" is her motto!

KittKatt:

1) How did you come across TCS? Looking for info when Monster got into poison when she was a kitten, and got great replies and just kind of hanged out after that.

2) How many furbabies have you had in your life, and what are their names? Oh my. First cat was Jasper (got him as a stray kitten), then Sassy (a beautiful black oriental that wouldn't shut up...and wouldn't leave! lol), then Monkey, and black and white kitten, her mom was a stray I was feeding and decided to introduce to us to her baby so she would be taken care of. I think her mommy died. Then there was Bootsie, Monkey's daughter that we kept (didn't realize they went into heat that fast). And Tigger, a siamese mix that I found on the side of the road about 7 weeks old. Those were my cats in Guam. After I found homes for them and moved I collected Harley, Monster, Little one, Gizmo, Corky and Missy...and numerous barn cats I feed.

3) What was the best job that you've ever had, and why did you like it? Working at a dive shop in Guam. It was great because I was an avid diver and got great discounts and free boat dives. Also, I was sent to Hawaii and Las Vegas on business trips.

4) What was the worst job you've had, and why didn't you like it? Call center job I have right now. I get yelled at every day, I really can't help the people except give them information...I'm not used to not being about to see something through from beginning to end.

5) Which holiday is your favorite? Christmas, definitely...with Halloween being a close second.

6) Who is your favorite author, and what kind of books do you like to read? Right now I'm rereading my old Stephen King books that I had packed away. He is one of my favorites, along with Dean Koontz, but also love James Patterson, Laurel K Hamilton (vampire series) and...oh...too many to list.

7) If you could live anywhere, where would it be? Right here in my house with my husband and my animals. It would be nice if I could transport my house to Hawaii every now and then.

8) Do you have any children? How many? Does my husband count? If not, no...just my four legged children, which is fine with me.

9) Do you like to play card or board games? Which is your favorite? Not really into board games. Card games, I love solitaire, either on computer or using actual cards. Of course its been so long since I used actual cards I don't know if I could shuffle anymore. Also like Gin Rummy

10) Do you like to travel? LOVE it! I love to experience different cultures. I just wish it didn't cost so much.
post #5 of 27
Actually, this is kind of fun! I will warn you though, tomorrow I have to work and then have our bowling Christmas party so I won't be on until after 10:00 tomorrow night. Just don't want anyone thinking I was ignoring the thread. I'll check in the morning though before I go to work.

I haven't dived in 5 years. Not since I moved back to the states. Diving in the muddy lakes around here just doesn't have the same appeal! I would love to dive the Great Barrier Reef in Australia (still kicking myself for not going when I was still in that part of the world). Soon, I hope to go down to the Carribean (sp?) and hit some of the islands down there. Again, that takes money which I don't have right now.

CoolCat:

The Topic of today would be Music

1.- Wich one is your favourite Genre of Music? I love 80's rock, classic rock, show tunes, classical music, I've gotten into country a little...hey, I live in West Virginia now, I have to.

2.- How many Cd´s do you have? Not that many now. I've lost a lot with moving unfortunately

3.- Wich one is your favourite singer Male? Don't think I have one.

4.- Wich one is your favourite singer Female? Ditto

5.- Have you ever to listened at http://www.rippingtons.com/ ????? Oh, that is awesome! I love that kind of music. It's so mellow and relaxing.

6.- Do you have a CD collection? ( I mean for example all Cd´s from a determinate artist??? No.

7.- Have you ever to participated in some Concert of your favourite artist? As in getting up on stage? No! LOL (I should be so lucky).

8.- Do you have any preference to listen a Radio FM station???
Have you ever to listened this one??...,…. http://www.1.fm/Stations/SmoothJazz/Listen.aspx?pidx=0 ) In our area, we don't have a lot of choices for FM...it's either country, or pop-rock station.

9.- In your own opinion wich one is better, a CD original from an artist or an MP3 collage of music without nothing of information?...Definitely a CD (considering I don't own a MP3 player...heck, I can barely figure out my cell phone!)

10.- Do you play some Musical instrument?… I can play the piano. My mom taught me when I was little, and when they could afford it they sent me for lessons. I regret stopping, and hope to get a piano soon.

mbjerkness:

Have you ever been to Canada? Yes

If so where? I visited a friend that lived in London, Ontario. And, I have a t-shirt to prove it! Seriously, it was 40 degrees when I left the Washington DC, when I got up there it was flipping cold!! As in below zero! I spent 5 days freezing my buns off and the day after I left, the cold snap ended and they had beautiful 50 degree weather. But, it was a nice trip and a beautiful city. Canadian are very friendly. I never realized you actually used "ah" so much though...
How many furry babies do you have?

The topic of today going to be Movies!

1.- Wich one is your favourite Genre of Movies? I love musicals, romantic comedy and some horror (if it's not too graphic)

2.- Do you collect DVD´s or VHS??,….How many do you have? I do have a collection of Disney films. Most are on VHS (showing my age), but I don't have many of the newer ones.

3.- Wich one is your favourite Actor Male? Probably Sean Connery. And I love Clark Gable.

4.- Wich one is your favourite Actor Female? Current, probably Julia Roberts. Older, I have to say Catherine Hepburn. Or Maureen O'Hara...I LOVE her!

5.- Have you ever to participated in some Special Event of your favourite artist? Nope, wish I could have!

6.- Have you ever to saw in live to some artist? ( I mean is some restaurant, buying at mall or in some resort?) I waited on Roy Clark, and he was a jerk! Other than that, no.

7.- Do you like to watch the Oscar Awards? Not really.

8.- Have you ever to participated in a role in a Theather representation? ( maybe just for fun or when you was on School?) … Oh yes, I was in theater in high school (played Tweedle Dee in our senior play! ) and continued into college. I was in Carousel and Cabaret with our local theater group, and helped with college plays with makeup and was a stage hand. I LOVE musicals but the funny thing is on my own I can't sing worth a hoot by myself but I can follow in a chorus.

9.- If you could to meet to some artist wich one would be and say us why!...I really have no idea who I would like to meet.

10.- Would you like to live next at some artist (? ( I mean for example your neighboor would be a TV anchor or else?)……Honestly, I would love to live next to Betty White. She loves animals, and reminds me so much of my grandma.

That's really funny! (not funny ha-ha, but funny as in strange!). Why, you may wonder? Because back when I worked in a call center, I took an order for Betty White once!

I see you also like Stephen King: he's one of my favs, too! And I also like Dean Koontz.

I'll have to think of a few more questions to ask you, Calico. But I promise I won't be as mean as Coolcat is!

I met my husband when I was 18 (back in 1988). He was going out with my then best friend and we hated each other! When he came back from the Navy, we ran into each other again, and became drinking buddies, then best friends. We were best friend for over 10 yrs...then one thing led to another and here we are!

I use a Trak phone. Texting? LOL, I'm lucky I can figure out how to answer the thing!

Dream vacation would be one week of having a live in housekeeper to wait on me hand and foot! Second choice is a trip to Egypt. I HAVE to see the Sphinx before I die.

5.- What is the thing that really anoy you on the persons.......( for example: the hypocresy, the envy etc) I hate fake people.

6.- Are you Religious? I was raised Catholic, but I'm not really practicing. I'm more spiritual than religious.

She's as nice as she seems, and isn't one of "those" - thank the Lord!

I also took an order for Jane Seymour once, too, but in her case, it wasn't really her, but her secretary instead..

There were a few other "famous" people, but I don't recall who.

1.- How many cats have you ever had in your enterely life? total of 11 (and about 20 million stray cats and barn cats I've fed over the years!)

2.- could you tell us the name of the list above? Jasper was my first, then Sassy, Monkey, Bootsie and Tigger (all in Guam). After I moved back home I got Harley, Moster, Little One, Gizmo, Corky and Missy.

3.- Do you have any preference about of Breeds of cats? Really no preference. All of mine are barn cats, but if I was going to get a pure bred cat it would be a Bengel.

4.- Do you dream with cats when you sleeps? Dream of cats? Yes, and they are usually tearing my house apart!

5.- Have you ever to give catnip at your kittys to play? Yes. The only one that really goes crazy for it is Harley. The rest play, get bored and find something else to get into.

6.- Wich brand do you prefer to give at your kitty in Wet and Dry food to eat? Monster will only eat Cat Chow (Indoor formula). I've tried better brands but she will not touch it.

7.- Would you like to work like a volunteer on a Cat shelter? I would love to, but I'm afraid I would bring them all home, or come home in tears everynight. I would love to eventually start our own no-kill shelter on our land.

another stuffs...
8.- Wich one is your favourite colour to wear? I look best in green (my eyes are green) but burgandy is good also. I hate to wear gray or orange.

9.- Do you have some earrings with shape of cat? Yes, 1 pair my husband bought me for no reason at all!

10.- do you have some blouse with stamps of cats? I don't have a blouse, but I have a fall jacket with cats on it that my mom got me (and she HATED cats!).

11.- do you collect or you have handcraft of kittys? I have a few things, but not really a collection.

12.- how many purses do you have? One. Oh, no...DH bought me a purse for Christmas so now I have two. I tend to use one until it is shot (and mine almost is, it is over 5 years old now) until I buy another. I don't get into the matching purses and shoes and outfits thing.

.....I hope not boring you with my questions my friend...

You are not boring me at all Nigel! Sorry it took me so long to post today, but the week before Christmas is very hectic.
