Hope
-favorite color?
Green
-favorite food?
Rice - that's what I've been craving lately anyway-
describe the day your got Gracie, in detail- how you felt, how you got her, any problems you encountered, etc:
Gracie was a stray we found in our garage, she was quite wild at first, but once she warmed up, she never left our sides. To be honest, when I first saw her I thought "shoot, another cat", but once we got to know her and her goofy but amazingly loving personality, there wasn't any second thoughts. I have recently come to know that a stray I've been seeing lately is Gracie's mother, so I'm currently trying to tame her.-...
2nd favorite food?
Pizza
-coffee, tea, soda? What kinds??
No coffee or tea... soda - Dr. Pepper-
Do you like chocolate? Favorite kind?
Love chocolate. any kind.-
What is on your desk right now?
at work? computer, adding machine, phone, lotion, fingernail polish, kleenex, stackers, family photo, bottle of water, calendar pencil holder and a few papers.-
What would you do if TCS just suddenly disappeared......FOREVER?!!!!!!!!
ACK. I'd be very depressed for a very long time... because there wouldn't be anything else that would be the same.-
Are you at work or home?
Work
-What IS your job?
Office assistant at a turf farm-
What is your least favorite thing about your job?
That I'm here 4 days a week.-
Pen or pencil?
Pen (fine point)-
You win $2,500 and 2 round-trip plane tickets. Where do you go, what do you do, who do you bring, and how do you spend the money?
I'd go to Texas to visit my family (that's where I'm from). I bring my husband and kids, since we rarely all four go there at the same time.-
Do you have any pets other than your cats?
a poodle named Ed. We've just got him after Christmas last year.-
How old is Wowzer?
I think Wowzer will be 2 this summer. She also strayed from the neighbors to our house.-
Where did Wowzer's name come from?
Our neighbor named her that because she meowed SO much (weowed, wowed etc.)-
How many mirrors are on the walls or furniture in your house?
Three
-Do you like bottled water?
Yes!-
Do you knit, crochet, quilt, cross-stitch, or anything like that?
I can knit a straight line LOL. I have cross-stitched in the past, but always wished I had more of that kind of talent-
What do you do on rainy days, if by some miracle you have no work to do?
LOL, I'm from the NW, so I'm very experienced with rainy days. Probaby watch TV, get online, read or do puzzles (crossword or sudoku), or play with the cats and dog
Ok that's it for now!
Have a great time!!
whew! those were some thought provoking questions.

Human kids? I'll assume so since you asked if they live near me... I have two kids.

Are they boys or girls?

One girl and one boy

Ages?

20 and 18

Names?

Katie & Kyle

What were their nicknames when they were babies?

Katie = Kater, Skater & Kyle = Kylie (he loved that!, and I sometimes still call him that).

Do they live near you?

Katie lives about 45 min away at college. Kyle just moved out in January, he lives only about 15 minutes away.

How often do you see them?

I'd say a few times a month or so (not often enough according to my husband). We probably see Kyle more often.

What else should we know about them?

Katie is a big goofball, she's got a great personality, tons of friends, and a very busy social calendar. Kyle is very driven to make money and be successful. They both had great significant others and both broke up with them right after Christmas. We really liked them (the bf & gf), and are trying to get used missing them.

And what the heck is a turf farm?!?!

It is a farm where lawn grass is grown. We harvest and deliver it and people install it and have instant lawns.
Ok, who's next?

Yes and no. I take Folic Acid and Calcium, but the last month or two, I have gotten off schedule, so I'm not currently taking them - thanks for the reminder though

Are you a plant person?

Just recently. A year and 1/2 ago, when we had to have our dog PTS, a coworker of mine got me a houseplant and it's still living! I've since then acquired a couple more (they are living as well!)

Favorite fast food restaurant?

Right now it's Arby's. I'm lovin their Bacon, Turkey and Ranch Wrap!!

A bunch of us are coming to dinner. What are we eating? drinking? is the house clean?

LOL The house is clean (now that I'm an empty nester, it's much easier to keep it that way). If I didn't know you were coming - we are eating pizza and pop that we went to get. If I know you are coming - then maybe BBQ or something that my husband helped me make. We are probably drinking water or pop.

Would you rather sleep in the same bed with someone with poison ivy or sleep in the bottom bunk of creaking bunk beds with a 400-pound man in the top bunk?

Yikes. now there is a choice. I've never had poison ivy, but I've heard how bad it is, but I think it's better than being squished... so I'll take the bottom bunk.

What is harder to get out of: bed or shower/bath?

Shower/bath. I've always been an early riser, so getting out of bed is rarely hard for me.

Which is worse: A guy next to you on a plane that won't stop snoring, or a baby on the plane that won't stop crying?

The snoring guy for sure! (the baby can't help it)

Which is worse: A) a bad picture on your passport or B) a bad picture on your yearbook?

Yearbook. That's when you are most worried about your looks.

Do you feel naked for the rest of the day if you forget to put your watch on in the morning?

Nope. I only wear it about 1/2 the time.

Do you cut your sandwiches or just eat them whole?

Cut in 1/2

Do you break things when you are angry?

No

Do ants invade your house every summer?

No

If you see a spider near you, but lose track of where it goes, do you start to feel itchy?

No

Would you rather have your own private jet or your own private yacht?

Jet

Do you prefer answering or asking questions?

Answering

Favorite Beauty product?

Lip Gloss

Favorite cleaning product?

Soft Scrub

favorite thing hanging on your wall right now? and please post a pic

Will do when I get home.

How many blankets do you have on your bed right now?

Two

Favorite room in your house/apartment?

My bathroom. I've always wanted a clawfoot tub and a big window, and we now have them.

Favorite magazine?

People.

What was the worst thing about being in the spotlight this week?

Having to think of the answers to some of the questions.

The best?

I guess being in the Spotlight. I've only been here since December, so it's kinda fun having the attention.

What color towels do have in your bathroom - are they all matched ?

Light beige, yes, they all match. We bought all new towels when we moved into our new house.

Are you a member of any club, organization?

Not besides church

Any charities that you support?

Our church

Do you recycle?

Yes and no. Since we moved, we don't have curbside recycling so it's not nearly as convenient - and I don't recycle as much as I used to. I recycle newspapers and magazines on a regular basis.

What's at the end of the rainbow?

I don't know, but I don't think it's a pot of gold.
one more to go... I think

That’s a tough one. Baby Ruth – but that changes with my mood. I like the inside stuff.

-Are you allergic to anything? What?

No

-How come the caps on water/soda bottles twist right and not left?

Righty – tighty, lefty – loosey

-How much do you remember from high school???

Not as much as I’d like.

Has anyone ever actually walked up to you and asked the birth-date and life story of that random famous historic guy in the powdered wig from that old textbook you had to study from???????

Nope (thank goodness)

-Post your least favorite smiley:



Why is that one your least favorite?

I don’t know – I just never use it.

-Go on google and type in your favorite color - green, right? -b and add the word "pattern" and search. Post your favorite pic that comes up.

I know this isn’t what you meant. I don’t know if I did it right, but after 5 pages, this is what I liked most. http://www.denby.ws/images/regencyg.jpg

-What is the longest word you know? ...... What does it mean?

Anesthesiologist (sp). a specialist who administers an anesthetic to a patient before he is treated

-Favorite book of all time and why?

Well, I don’t really read that many books. I mostly like non-fiction and I have a hard time finding ones that I think will be good. Of the recent books I’ve read it’s My Friend Leonard from the past there is one that I think the name is They Are All Dead Aren’t They (I think that’s the name of it). It is the saddest story I’ve ever read.

-What kind of movies do you like? Why?

Romantic comedies

-Post the smiley you find most annoying:



Why do you find it annoying?

looks ugly!

-Most trouble you got in when you were a kid?

Well, it was the time my friend and I skipped school and went to Portland. Neither of our parents knew where we were and we didn’t get home until late that night.

-Describe yourself in one sentence:

I am a friendly, loyal and patient person.

-Favorite kind of sandwich?

Not really into sandwiches but I guess PB & J

-What was the last thing you watched on tv?

The Bible on AMC this morning while getting ready for work.

-Are you a lefty or a righty?

Righty

-Do you believe in the 5-second rule? .. Like, if you dropped a grape on the floor and picked it up within 5 seconds would you still eat it??

Yep. Even longer than 5 seconds depending on who’s floor, less than 5 depending on the floor too!

-Biggest fear?

Dying too early (before I see my kids get married, have kids etc.)

-Craziest thing you ever did? Would you do it again??

Wow. I don’t do too many crazy things. I guess once while on vacation visiting a relatives farm I climbed to the top of a grain silo. It was quite scary. My legs started feeling very jello like on the way up – I was worried I wouldn’t have the strength to make it down.

-Top 4 pet peeves?

Only 4??! Haha

1. When they mess up your order and specifically forget your straw through a drive through
2. Slow drivers (slower than the speed limit)
3. Rude customer service people
4. Telemarketers!


-Do you like snow?

Yes, only because we don’t get it very often here.

How about 3 ft of snow?

I’ve never experienced that much. I think I might like it in the beginning.

-Do you like to cook?

Not really.

-How old is Ed? I'll be he's cute, am I right?

He is a rescue dog, so they aren’t sure exactly how old, but the vet says 4-5. YEP, he’s cute. He just had his very first grooming yesterday. When we got him, he had to be totally shaved down because he his hair was so matted.

-Ooh! could we possibly see a picture of Ed??

Of course.

-A moment when you felt on top of the world?

That’s tough. Building and moving into our house was a big moment (on the property I grew up on). The most recent I can recall anyway.

-What are 5 small things that have made you happy today?

1.\tWell, Ed makes me happy every day. I love how excited he is to see me when I go home at lunch to let him out.
2.\tMy boss bought us all Chinese food for lunch!
3.\tMy house is still clean after the weekend cleaning!
4.\tMy friend is coming to my work today
5.\tBeautiful sunrise this morning


-Are you into politics? What are your views on it?

Not really. I do try to vote in every election (learned that from my dad)

-Something you have a VERY strong opinion on:

Getting your animals FIXED! That’s probably my strongest.

-How many toys do your cats have?...

Well, probably about 20 if I had to guess without counting. I have them all in a wicker basket.

-...Compared to how many toys your originally bought them??

Actually we don’t have a very high loss ratio. I usually just have to fish them out from under the stove.

-Where DO the toys go???????? (or are you lucky enough for them all to still be around?)

Under the stove

-What makes the world go round? (either figuratively or literally)..

If I would have remembered from school… I would tell you.

-Best joke you've ever heard?

Have no idea.

-Toughest lesson you ever learned?

Wow – that’s probably one I can’t answer. I could, but it’s too personal for here.

-Favorite kind of music?

Either Contemporary Christian or Country

-Hmm....favorite site?

Website? TCS and Craig’s List

-Describe TCS in 7 words:

Fun, informative, friendly, busy, caring, funny, best

-Oldest appliance in your house?

They all were bought at the same time, so a year and ½

-Annoying habits you have?

Ack! I guess the one thing my husband complains most about is my chewing (he has no tolerance for chewing noises) although I don’t think I’m that loud.

-If some stranger just randomly walked up to you and asked for a hug, what would you do?

I have no idea. I hate to say this, but it probably depends on what they looked like (safe or not) and if I was alone or not. I think I might do it reluctantly.

-Have you had enough of these questions yet?

Well, there certainly have been a lot of them – but we can’t get to know each other without them.

-Dream job? Why? (and you can't just say no job )

The job I have now really is great, but otherwise, I’d have to say I’d love to be a teacher (K-2nd grade)

-What do other people (friends, family) think of you?

I think they like me. My husbands family all likes me.

-What kind of car do you have?

Honda Accord

-What is the weather like in your area right now?

Partly cloudy

Hundreds of acres of farm fields and Mt. Hood

Gracie does – she’s a bird fanatic

Yes

Soft Scrub

Not really – occasionally at work.

-What time do you have to get up in the morning on weekdays/workdays?

5:40 am

-What time do you usually get up on the weekend?

6:30-7:00 am only because I can’t sleep later than 6:00

-Do you belong to any other pet forums?

No. I’ve tried to find a dog forum, but none can meet my expectations (spoiled by TCS)

-How old were you when you had your 1st kiss?

10 or 11. 5th grade

-What is a law that you think they should make? Why?

That people shouldn’t be able to have kids if they don’t pass the idiot test. I hate seeing people treating their kids badly. I hate when they have ‘no clue’. The other day a mom called her little (2ish) year old girl a little “sh..†ugh!

-Last time you had an ice cream in a cone??

Last summer

-What do you love about life?

Nature, my family and my pets.

-Finish this poem and make it be about Gracie !!

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,

And very cute too!


-Have you ever accidently locked yourself out of your car? What did you do?

Yes, many times. I called my husband to bail me out.

-Have you ever been locked out of the house? If so- For how long? What did you do, and how did you finally get back in?

Yes, the scariest time was when my kids were little. Kyle was an infant laying on the floor on a blanket. We had just moved into a new house and I had gone out into the garage to do laundry, the door shut and was locked. I was so afraid that Katie might accidentally hurt him or try to pick him up. I ran crying to the neighbors (hadn’t even met them yet). Luckily my husband was only about 10 minutes away, so he ran home and let me in.

-Ocean or pool?

Pool.

-Are you afraid of heights, or not so much?

Not so much

-Furthest away you've ever been from home?

Probably East Texas

-Favorite holiday and why?

Christmas. I love all of the traditions, the decorating, and the gift giving and the good feelings that you get from giving gifts.

-Worst conditions you've ever had to drive in? Did you get home - or where ever you were going - safely??

I was in Houston Texas visiting my father who was ill. I was on the way to the airport to pick up my brother. It started POURING DOWN RAIN so hard I couldn’t see anything at all. It was also thundering so loudly – that was really scary and lightening was striking very close. I was by myself and really scared. I actually pulled over until it stopped – then trying to get back on the freeway was another scary moment. But – I made it!

-Least favorite color?

Brown

-What is Gracie like? I mean, like, her personality?

She’s a sweetheart. She’s got a bit of a goofy personality, but she’s a real sweetie. She really only likes to play with balls, the soft kind that she can carry around and she’s nuts about getting under blankets. She wants to be liked and doesn’t like the fact that Wowzer doesn’t like her. She misses sleeping with Boogs – so now she has adopted Ed as her sleeping buddy.

-Do your cats have any weird habits?

They are both weird in the way they drink water. Gracie laps it up from the far side of the dish and Wowzer laps it up from the right side of her paw while it’s in the water.

-What would you do if you woke up and the road was purple ???

Laugh!
All I have to say is WOW... am I glad I'm done with that one! hehe

But first off Kitters would like to ask your furry babys a few questions of her own.

Could you each please state your name, your age, something about you, and your favorite toy that you got from your meowmy.

Wowzer. I'm almost 2! My favorite toy is all of the mice. I like to run up the stairs with them, then let them tumble down so I can chase them. If I'm lucky, someone will toss them up for me.

Gracie. I'm about 6 months old. My favorite toys are the soft balls I can carry in my mouth. Our dog Ed is also one of my favorite toys. When he plays fetch, I chase him.

What do you like most about your meowmy?

I like how she took us both in and gives provides us with good food, a nice place to live and vet care.

What do you like most about your purrpaw?

Well, we like how he sits in one place for a long time so we can sleep on his lap.

Kitters


Ok now for my questions!


How long have you been married?

21 years!

Did you plan both kids?

Did you get anything from me?

Not today! Darn!

What color is your hair?

Well, I have medium brown, then a few blonde highlights and some auburn lowlights.

It always used to be really short, but it's kinda in the growing out stage, so it's a little of both.

Silly Jilly
Very cute questions!
post #18 of 24
Wow you're so lucky! Here, gas prices are around $2.49!!!!!!

Ok... Now onto some different types of questions.
Some of them are on a more serious note if that's ok. And a lot I think are just great to get to know people.

-Tell about a turning point in your life.
-Describe a time of your greatest sadness.
-Tell about a person who had the most.
-Tell about some of the wonderful things your family does together other than holiday things, if anything.

-How do you see yourself?
-What really wakes you up, keeps you alert, and makes you take notice in the world?
-What do you excel at?
-What do you dream about? (literally- dreams)
-What kinds of things do you always remember?
-What kinds of things do you always forget?
-What do others really not understand about you or not know about you that you are willing to reveal?
-What are 10 things that make you really angry?
-What are 20 things that make you very happy?
-Who taught you how to (or made you) dance? Where? When?
-What are some serious illnesses or accidents you've had, if any?
-Favorite song of all time, and why?
-What is your general attitude about life & living?

Now for something more interesting!
Finish these sentences:

-On saturdays (or whatever day you have off) I like to......
-If I only had 24 hours to live I would........
-I feel best when people.......
-I feel bad when.......
-Secretly I wish.........
-The happiest day of my life was when.......
-My worst day ever was when........
-I am best at.......
-My favorite place in the world is......

That'll be all for now!

oh I know. Usually we are among the highest prices, but they said last week we had the lowest in the nation!! The lowest in Portland was $1.84

-Tell about a turning point in your life.

A big turning point in my life was actually when I was going through some tough times in my marriage. Getting through that was a total turning point. I don't think things would be so great now if we hadn't have went through that really rough patch.

-Describe a time of your greatest sadness.

When my dad passed away. I have had a pretty strained relationship with my mom for the past 20 years (they were divorced) and I was extremely close to my dad. He didn't live near me, and I didn't realize the seriousness of his illness until I talked to my uncle one night and he said I better get down there to see my dad. He passed away I believe 3 weeks later. Thank goodness for my uncle. I flew down right away and stayed for two weeks.

-Tell about a person who had the most.

LOL Who had the most what?

-Tell about some of the wonderful things your family does together other than holiday things, if anything.

Lately we've been playing a lot of games together when the kids are home (board games). A couple of our favorites are Apples to Apples and Loser

-How do you see yourself?

I see myself as not as confident as I would like to be. I think I am pretty responsible and have a very full life.

-What really wakes you up, keeps you alert, and makes you take notice in the world?

Cold air

-What do you excel at?

At work I excel at computer stuff. I'm the one in the office always running around showing people how to do things with various programs.

At home I feel I excel at keeping the family on pace and together. I think I am a great mom and wife.

-What do you dream about? (literally- dreams)

Well, this is a funny question. We took a survey at work and one of the questions was "do you remember your dreams" I never did until that day and we were all talking about it. Now I remember a lot of them. It's usually really dumb stuff. The other night I had a dream that I was riding a horse and talking to my dad about the problems I was having controlling the horse. We finally determined that it was because the bridle was loose and the bit kept falling out of my horses mouth.

-What kinds of things do you always remember?

I remember everything. It drives my husband nuts. He says I'm a walking phone book. I'm not great with dates though, or names from high school.

-What kinds of things do you always forget?

dates and names (from the past)

-What do others really not understand about you or not know about you that you are willing to reveal?

I think what most people don't understand about me is that in the beginning I'm shy. A lot of people think it's that I"m being rude, but it's not.

-What are 10 things that make you really angry?

Abuse (to people or animals)
Mean people
Insurance companies (at times)
Banks (at times)
Disrespect


that's all I can come up with. My mind is tired and my tummy is hungry - I can't concentrate.

-What are 20 things that make you very happy?

Surprises
Flowers
Cats
Dogs
Babies
Friends
Music
Sunrises
Sunsets
Snow
Sunshine
Baths
Good food

(see above tired mind excuse!)


-Who taught you how to (or made you) dance? Where? When?

I'm not a great dancer at all. I do a little waltz, and basic slow dance - but that's it.

-What are some serious illnesses or accidents you've had, if any?

I haven't had many. When I was 13 I had a serious flu. I was out of school for a month. Then about 10 years ago I had another bad flu. I was so weak my husband was really worried about me. I couldn't get off of the couch for a couple of weeks. When I was 10, I fell in our barn and a crooked, rusty nail went through my arm at my elbow.

-Favorite song of all time, and why?

That's a very tough one. I really like When I Fall in Love, but I'm sure that's not my all time favorite. But it's what I can think of right now.

-What is your general attitude about life & living?

I am a very optimistic person, so I have a great attitude about both.

Now for something more interesting!
Finish these sentences:

-On saturdays (or whatever day you have off) I like to...... get my house cleaned top to bottom!

-If I only had 24 hours to live I would........ try to make the most out of it and see as many family and friends as I could. I'd also try to tell my kids everything I thought they needed to know about life.

-I feel best when people....... get along.

-I feel bad when....... I've done something wrong or made a mistake.

-Secretly I wish......... my husband had more similar tastes when it came to our yard.

-The happiest day of my life was when....... my kids were born.

-My worst day ever was when........ (can't say that one)

-I am best at....... being organized

-My favorite place in the world is...... my grandmothers house

That'll be all for now!
Thank you, thank you, thank you I hope my answers were satisfactory!
post #20 of 24
Ooh I've only played Apples to Apples once, with 10 people, it is so fun! I know it's a game not many people know about....

And your answer to the "what is something people don't understand about you that you are willing to reveal" question is EXACTLY the same as what I would say. I am an extremely shy person, except online of course lol that's easy. People think I am being rude or don't like them or something...I really hate it...but I can't help it. So I hear ya on that one

Ok just a few questions today! Sorry about the unfinished question, I have now idea how that happened LOL. So here is the question I meant to say, first:

-Tell about the person who had the biggest impact on your life.

And a few more:

-What animal do you think you are most like and why?
-If you could have something named after you, what would it be and what would it be called? How would it relate to you?
-Are you religious?
-What is something you are good at that your friends/people you know are not?
-If you could have a superpower, what would it be & why?
-How was your day today?

I hope you enjoyed your time in the spotlight!!
Have a great evening.

Probably my dad. Even though we didn't exactly see eye to eye when I was growing up (I thought he was too strict), I really admired his advice and I think he tought me the most life lessons.

-What animal do you think you are most like and why?

Probably a dog. Even though I'm more of a cat person, I think I am very eager to please.

-If you could have something named after you, what would it be and what would it be called? How would it relate to you?

I think an animal shelter. Maybe it would be called "Hope 4 Animals" or something like that. I would hope that everyone would know how important animals (and their rescue) is/are to me.

-Are you religious?

Yes - Christian. My dad was a pastor, so I grew up going to church. It is a very important aspect of my life.

-What is something you are good at that your friends/people you know are not?

Probably computer stuff. Even though I wouldn't consider myself great at it, everyone I know, except for my kids are pretty clueless.

-If you could have a superpower, what would it be & why?

I think being able to fly would be cool! I could save money on gas that way!

-How was your day today?

Well, it just started, so today so far has been great. As far as a full day - yesterday was pretty great too. It was just me and my boss at work (and she's 'the' greatest) so we had fun, even though we were busy.

I hope you enjoyed your time in the spotlight!!

I did. It was fun, although I had no idea how much work it was going to be! lol

2. Do you have any stuffed animals?

I have a few that I saved from growing up that are stored, but none out in the house.

3. Were you a Don Knotts fan?

Yes, I loved him most on the Andy Griffith Show more than I did in the Disney movies and such.

4. What is the one thing about your school years you'll never forget?

My favorite teachers.

5. Do you crack your knuckles?

No - I never have.

6. Would you prefer a steak or a chicken breast?

Steak!

7. What do you eat on hotdogs?

Mustard. Sometimes I'll add mayo and relish, but not too often.

8. What is your least favorite household chore?

Scrubbing the showers! Hands down!

9. Have you ever skipped a stone across a lake?

I've tried, but I've never been successful.

10. If someone gave you 4 acres of land somewhere, where would you want it to be?

Wow. that's a toughie. I guess I would say Texas because that's where my family lives.
Thanks for the questions!
