Kelly over at Dysfunctionalally Functional “tagged” me in this 11 question meme. I like questionnaires and they make blogging easy, but this one has a lot of questions and a lot of rules so I’m adjusting a bit. Thank you for the tags Kelly (I think)…
Update – I went back to link the tag and I can’t seem to find it. I don’t know whose questions these are, but I’m sharing anyways since they took so much damn time!
Here are Kelly’s questions to me (or maybe not)…
- If "happiness" was the global currency, what kind of work would make you a gazillionaire? traveling, cooking, and drawing/painting
- Would you break the law to save someone you loved? And, if so, how far would you be willing to take it? That’s a hard one! I’m a rule follower, so I guess it would depend on the situation.
- Is it possible to really know the truth without questioning it first? Sure, I think there are just things that you know are true. Others need to be investigated.
- Do you remember that one time . . . oh, about 5 years ago or so . . . when you were really, really upset? Does it really matter now? The only thing that makes me REALLY upset is betrayal, and I don’t tend to forget that.
- If not now, then when? Exactly! Or maybe after I’ve thought about it to death.
- Is it possible to know, without a doubt, what is good and what is evil? I think a lot of evil is done under the guise of good.
- What would you do differently if you knew nobody would judge you? I’m not sure the decisions I make are based on someone else judging me . Although maybe I’d wear my pajamas a lot more often if no one would find it inappropriate.
- Would you rather have less work to do, or more work you actually enjoy doing? I like my job for the most part, and I tend to be more productive when I’ve got a lot to do.
- Would you rather be an anxious genius, or a tranquil fool? Ha! Neither sound all that good.
- Are you more worried about doing things right, or doing the right things? I worry about both those things.
- How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are? I’d be the same age even if I didn’t know how old I was! :)
AND Kelly also awarded me with the Fabulous Blogger Award (thank you thank you) which had even MORE “questions”…

And last but not least (give me a break people, trying to kill three birds with one stone here ) this week’s Saturday 9…
1. What helps you get through the night? I don’t usually have trouble getting to sleep unless I’m sick, and then a big swig of Nyquil always helps. As a kid I had terrible allergies and asthma. In order to breathe comfortably when I slept I had to prop up on bunch of pillows and basically sleep at a 90 degree angle. Even though they aren’t really needed anymore, I still sleep with a ton of pillows.
2. Do you ALWAYS keep an open mind? I would say most of the time I do. Sometimes I’ll put a wall up and not want to hear “it” but I can usually be talked into something if there’s good reason to be.
3. Who is the wisest person you know? I don’t know. This question always stumps me.
4. Who is the strongest person you know? I don’t like these –est questions very much at all.
5. How would we tell by your behavior if you are having a bad day? Ha ha, it wouldn’t be too hard since I wear my feelings on my sleeve. I get quiet and mopey – I’m not someone who fakes it very well. Luckily, I’m generally happy and don’t have to worry about faking it too often.
6. Does your ego sometimes get in your way? At times, sure. There are only certain things that I have an ego about and if my plans in those areas go awry, then it sets me back a bit. I think more often not having an ego and being too timid get in my way.
7. Do you believe in Zen? If yes, can it be mastered? I don’t know enough about it to believe or not believe in it. I do know that I’m probably too high strung for it though. :)
8. Do you believe you could teach someone, like your child, to be competitive? It’s possible to teach someone the skills they need to be competitive in something, but wanting to compete is very different. That probably comes from within.
9. Do you believe home is not a place but rather a state of mind? I don’t know, I like being at my house and there’s no one else there making it a “home” except for me. So I guess, or maybe not.
Phew, that took a long time. What about you????
