Another Saturday 9

I’ve been waiting all week for a new Saturday 9 questionnaire.   How nice to be posting from under the covers on a lazy Saturday morning. Here we go…

1. Have you ever had a romantic breakup that was easy? All but one were fairly easy and amicable.  Just one was bad…very, very bad. 

2. When was the first time that you felt betrayed? Hmmm, the first time?  See above, probably not the first… but definitely the worst.

3. Do you feel religious beliefs should have a role in politics? NO FREAKING WAY!

4. Are you doing anything special this weekend? First and foremost, sleeping in!  Also have plans tonight with a wonderful friend.  Then, I’ve GOT to finish my report cards since parent/teacher conferences are this week.

5. Oreo cookies turned 100 years old this week. How do YOU eat an Oreo?  I don’t.

6. If you could change something about yourself, what would it be? After certain events (see #1) I escaped into my career and put every ounce of my being into it.  I’ve become quite good at what I do, but I often wonder if it was at the expense of other things…no, I know it was at the expense of other things.  I wish I hadn’t done that.

7. Describe a time when you should have tried harder.  Hmmm, I put a lot of effort into most things I’m involved in, I’m just wired that way. But I guess I’d have to say high school.  In classes I liked, I did well.  In classes I didn’t like, I did what I needed to do to pass.  In the big picture, those classes didn’t make or break my success, but I know it wasn’t my best work.

8. What is your favorite baseball-related movie?  Tie – “Bull Durham” and “Major League”…although saw “Moneyball” a few months ago, and it was entertaining.

9. What is one lesson you have learned in the past year?  Just keep your mouth shut!  Some battles simply get to the point where they are too hard to fight and not worth losing your sanity over.


  1. It's been awhile since I've had an Oreo. But I used to love them.

    I haven't gotten around to watching Moneyball yet.

    Thanks for visiting my Saturday 9.

  2. @Kwizgiver - My students made edible Cat in the Hat hats for Read Across America week last week and used an Oreo for the base. They loved those Oreos!
    Moneyball was fun. I'm not really a Brad Pitt fan, but he was good in it.

  3. I quite like the 'fishing with a gold hook'. It works in so many occasions.
    Oreos, whats-zat-then.

  4. Returning the visit from Sat9. I don't eat Oreos either. yuck!!

  5. @Vince - What's an Oreo?!?! Why, it's "America's Favorite Cookie"! :)
    Are they not sold over there? Their commercials are always about how they are eaten - dunked in milk, twisted in half, or just gobbled up. I just don't have a horse in that race.
    As for the golden hook...are you referring to the one that rips out the throat?

  6. @Tammy - Thanks for stopping by. I don't have an opinion either way. :)

  7. Oreos? I eat the outsides and toss the might like them that way if you tried :)

    Enjoy your weekend!!

  8. Agreed! Oreos are pointless and your #9? Well. You know.

  9. @Becky - hmmmmmm

    @Marey - I'm not really into sweets all that much, so I don't think the sans middle would make any difference. With 100 years under their belt, clearly, I'm in the minority. :)

  10. @Jason - I do know! Hopefully I can practice what I preach on that too. If not, it's your job to tell me to "shut the ef up!" ;)

  11. You are so civilized. All of my break ups have been awful.

  12. @Mami - Ha! I think that says a lot more about the relationships than it does about me. :) The bad one wasn't civil during or after.

  13. Do you mind if I borrow your questions for my own blog tonight? I hope not. I'll post and you can ley me know it it's not ok.

    i dig all you answers. You are my type of gal. Fo sho!

  14. Glad to see you here again. I have to check the rest of the folks out, busy unpacking yesterday!

  15. @crystal - of course it's ok by me! I took them from the sat 9 website. Can't wait to see your answers! :)

    @bankerchick - good luck! That's a big job!
