Sat 9

1) Crazy Sam is beyond sick of all things Kardashian! What's a topic you're just tired of and don't want to talk about anymore?
As a matter of fact they irritate me a little bit too. How someone who does NOTHING can warrant so much attention. Kim K was on my flight from Paris to LA a couple of weeks ago. We were just through customs when security whisked her through. We walked out about a minute before her to about 50 photographers in the waiting area. While we waited for our ride, a giant black escalade pulled up, she walked out, followed by all the photographers - I thought we might be trampled. They bumped and pushed into us, knocking over my suitcase. The door sat open for a few second (hmmm I wonder why) and then the SUV peeled out into very bad airport traffic. There were so many photographers, most of them just held their camera up over their head and shot. Blows my mind that anyone cares enough about her to warrant that kind of attention.

2) Rod Stewart has been recording for more than 40 years. Do you have any of his music on your iPod/mp3 player? I don't think I do, but I might have a "Best of" cd somewhere.

3) Rod Stewart is known for his coif. How much time do you spend on your hair each morning? Oh dear, this question is going embarrass me a little bit. For someone who is fairly low maintenance in the getting ready department, my hair takes a LONG time. I have a ton of hair on my head and it takes forever to dry, FOREVER. I have this thing about going out with wet hair so I spend at least 40 minutes on my hair, drying a section at a time. Just when I think I'm done I find another section that's wet. I hate every minute of it, but a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do. The rest of my morning routine is quite speedy in comparison.

4) Rod's first child, a daughter, will turn 50 this year. His most recent child, also a daughter, is 2. How close in age are your children? If you don't have any children, how close in age are you and your siblings? If you don't have children OR siblings, well, tell us what's immediately to your left as you respond to this meme. If you don't have anything to your left ... Oh, hell, I give up!
I don't have kids and I don't have any siblings. My dogs is passed out to my left. She's also the only child and doesn't have any kids.

5) Which do you prefer -- french toast or pancakes? I don't really like either however if my life was on the line I'd choose french toast because it has cinnamon. But sweet breakfast doesn't have much appeal to me.

6) When was the last time you lost your cool? We just finished the 2nd week of our 4-week standardized test prep practice. Argh! This whole week has been trying on my patience.

7) Crazy Sam once had a pet hamster she named Bart. Have you ever cared for a hamster or a gerbil? I had a hamster named Daisy growing up. She chewed her way out of her cage and went missing for about a month. My parents had a party one night that went into the early hours of the morning. While they played a game of darts the hamster ran across the room with her cheeks full of dog food. She'd been coming out each night, stealing the dog food, and surviving on it for a whole month.

8) Are you ticklish? Oh my goodness yes! Just pretending to tickle me makes me ticklish.

9) Ouch! You have a headache! What's your go-to remedy? Caffeine...but I don't get too many headaches now that I rarely drink it.

  1. 1)As a man the K's don't really cause a blip on my radar. I had to look them up. KimK is a bit molded don't you think. More the result of ASPS than genes. The others are healthy looking women.
    B)No.
    3)Growing a beard right now. Just to see. So a bit more time than normal. Done and dusted in 2-3mins.
    9) aspirin works quite well for a headache.:-)

    1. Not really a blip on mine either as I don't keep up with the tabloids, but it is thrown in our face on the "news" quite a bit here. Seeing it at the airport first hand was just gross though.
      2-3 minutes is longer than normal? Luck out!

    2. Well yeah, shaving takes a few. But most straight fellas don't go far beyond getting the hair wash in the shower. And ours is so short that it can be toweled dry enough. If product, it will go in via a splash on the hand, rubbed quickly and then fingered through the hair. (That last bit sounds vaguely dirty but you get the gist) It's only a tryout though for the fun.

    3. One of the great divisions between the sexes.
      It's real nice roll out of bed and go, and on the weekends sometimes I do, the problem is it's obvious I rolled out of bed and went. It's not as obvious with most men.

  2. I really don't get it about the so called celebrities who have not done any thing to deserve the fame. Maybe the K's will go the same way as Paris Hilton.

    1. Fingers crossed! Although that would mean they'd moved on to some other ding dong do nothing who is famous for no reason.

    1. I have to force myself to eat any breakfast at all. The last thing I want to do in the morning is eat but since it's about 5 hours until my recess break I make sure I have something so I'm not starving. But those fancy breakfasts are just too much for me.

  5. I swear they call the media themselves to get more pictures out there. The hamster story cracked me up!

  6. Loved the hair question...I have a lot too...and now that it is long again I can pile it in a big ponytail and off I go....yesterday it was still wet in the middle when I took it down to swim at 4:00!

    Happy Saturday!

    1. That's my problem too. If I leave with wet hair, I can't seem to get it to try all day.

  10. I think the Kardashians are the downfall of American culture.
