Can I answer that without sounding braggadocios? Or worse? Besides, I can't really think of anything I've done that qualifies as that spectacular.
The last thing you ate that tasted superb?
The Voodoo Pasta I ate at Effina's at Christmastime.
Supersensitive, superstitious, superwoman, superambitious, supercilious, supervisor, superficial...pick a super word from the list and tell us how it relates to your life in some way recently or currently.
Superfluous, as in unnecessary. My life seems that way sometimes. I want to live an authentic life that means something to someone. All I seem to create right now are messy patches on an otherwise beautiful tapestry. And, yes, I've already read Purpose Driven Life three times, but still haven't found exactly why I'm here.
Do you love easily? If you're comfortable doing so, explain why you think that is.
It depends on the object of my affection. Jesus? Yes, He's done too much for me not to love him (I John 4:19). I try not to love material objects, but I thoroughly enjoy them. Others? I make a valiant attempt to. There are people who feel their main purpose in life is to make themselves as unlovable as possible. I've been that person myself, so I know it's a cover up for pain. Sometimes I can get involved and freely love, sometimes, I have to just say "bless your heart" and move on. Myself? Now there's a different story. I still don't freely love myself. Rather sad since I'm always with me. If only I could make myself more loveable...
Valentine's Day lands on a Tuesday this year. Will you mark the day in some way? If you're celebrating with a dinner out somewhere will it be on Tuesday or will you celebrate over the weekend?
Valentine's day makes me miss my days at the preschool. It was so easy and fun to celebrate with my babies. Candy, gifts, good food, playing all day, and the biggest bonus of all, no nap time that day, make for a wonderful celebration. I have no idea how to celebrate the day with other adults. I want to do something for my coworkers and customers, but I'm not sure what is appropriate. Looks like a job for Pinterest.
What's something you are loving right now?
My reading chair. My CEO was replacing his office furniture and gave me one of his old armchairs. I'd had it sitting in front of my vanity table, but the table is uncomfortably tall for the chair. Plus, the chair seemed to swallow all the space in my bedroom. Simply moving a few things over and sitting the chair to face the rest of the room with a reading lamp makes it a comfy spot to read. With my footstool, it creates a perfect angle for writing at my laptop. Comfy, cozy.
My plan for the chair is to have it reupholstered when I have my own digs to put it in. I want it to look like this...
My chair isn't exactly like this one, but their shapes are similar. Of course, I will not be doing the upholstering like this person did; I am not that talented. Hopefully I can afford to get my friends at Rochester's to do it. Something else for the dream book.
Write a three word (or less) phrase you'd like to see on a Valentine candy heart.
To steal a line from Whose Line is it Anyway?: "I've always faked it." OK, that's four words. Lemmie try again...
"Love me do...or don't." Dang, that's still too many words..."Put the lotion in the basket." Nope...
"I tolerate you."
"Valentine's day sucks."
"Goin' Stag Rules."
"Party 'till 8pm."
"Cupid's a dork."
"Because I'm tacky."
"Where's your mama?"
"Get a job."
"Beer & Pizza"
"Sorry, I'm drunk."
"Wash my car."
Yeah, I know it's not a phrase.
If you wanted me to be serious,
you should have said so.
Insert your own random thought here.
As if the heart quotes weren't random enough...
Team No Sleep keeps trying to come back to my house. The past two nights have been horrid. I think I've discovered part of the problem. A couple of weeks ago, I picked up a different variety of laundry detergent because it was on sale (You're welcome, Mr. Ramsey). Not being one to have sensitive skin issues, brands normally don't matter. Well, I'd used this brand for years, but not this particular scent. For several days now, I've been feeling itchy--at night it's much worse. I'm going to have to chunk it and go back to what I was using. I plan to redo my laundry and see if that gets rid of the problem. That's not the only insomnia variable, but it's a big one. Can't sleep and scratch.
