If people get a purple heart for bravery, what do the other colors of hearts mean? (Make up your own heart meanings and colors.) Red is for showing love to your fellow soldiers, Orange is for ______________, Yellow is for having a good disposition almost all of the time, Green is for being willing to deal with whatever nature has dealt without complaining, Blue is for having a positive attitude about the future.
If you were given $5 Million to open a small museum, what kind of museum would you create? Art – all kinds of art, glass, pottery, paintings…Things that aren’t necessarily from famous artists but maybe at least one piece from each person who thinks that they have made something beautiful. I’d limit it to one piece each because that will certainly fill a whole museum.
if you could build a themed hotel, what would the theme be and what would it look like? It would be a spa. There would be sandy beaches that never looked dirty and NEVER had litter. There would be comfortable cabanas set up for every single guest. There would be drink fountains so you never got thirsty and an open bar for those who like to imbibe. There would be fresh fruit available and cold foods like ice cream and sherbet. Everyone that worked there would be smiling, at least on the outside, and there would be no foul language, no arguments, and nothing loud. I think I am watching too many Sandles Resorts commercials! Lol.
What would the adult version of an ice cream truck sell, look like, and play for its song? It would sell every flavor of ice cream, especially chocolate. It would look like one of the old Milkman trucks. It would have a nice peaceful piano music that never repeated.
What animal would be the cutest if it was down-sized to the size of a cat? A giraffe. I’d get one in a heartbeat. Elephants are also adorable. My first inclination is to say Capybara, but I already have two guinea pigs so that one has sort of already occurred.

What are five things you could buy at a gas station to make the cashier look at you oddly? a pregnancy test, a box of condoms, diapers, life savers, and whipped cream If someone were to narrate your life, who would you choose to do it? Kermit the Frog Have you ever given an impromptu speech about something you know nothing about? Yes, I taught in a high school – anything to keep them engaged. What will be the most laughable artifacts they find from our generation? gas cans and ovens Time stands still for everyone except you for an hour. How would you spend that time? reorganizing my craft supplies or looking for more to buy online
1) If you were to be cast as part of a comedy double act, which part would you play: the straight man or the funny one, and why? I would probably start of as the straight woman but then end up being the funny one once I got into it. Once I get on a roll I’m good…
2) If you were to be reincarnated on Earth as any non-living/inanimate object of your choosing, what would you come back as and why? Hmmm….I guess maybe I would like to be a freezer…people like to put things in there to save and a lot of times they fill it with good stuff like ice cream. Who doesn’t like a little extra freezer space?
3) We all know how dogs mark their territory. How do you mark your territory? I make miniature things that are very detailed. People have come to see miniature things and think of me.
4) If you were on a trivia show and had to correctly answer ten questions in one subject to win a million dollars (or whatever currency is used in your locale), what would you hope the category would be? Potpourri – a little of everything
5) In democratic societies, do you believe that the right to vote is merely a privilege or a duty for all citizens? This should not be thought of as an “Americans only” question. ANY ONE is welcome to answer. I think it is sort of both. I think that it is a privilege that can be lost, like if you commit a crime but I also think it a duty so that the system works properly. The way the government seems to want to make new rules about voting so I don’t really believe in its truth-aspect. I mean, if you vote but the decision is based on a bunch of other factors, what’s the point?
When was the last time you were totally lost? [Be this physically, mentally, emotionally or so on, interpretation is yours] When was the last time I wasn’t? Starting with my husband passing in 2018 my life has not stopped this whirlwind of changes. I just want a place to physically settle, mentally relax, and be more emotionally stable.
Do you think that we as viewers to the entertainment industry have much higher and perhaps unrealistic expectations to the content that we read, watch or listen to today in comparison to previous years and or generations?
Literature/Film/Television/Music I think a lot of people expect a lot! I don’t see what is wrong with the old shows. They were truly funny if they were supposed to be. They were truthful, maybe a little too truthful sometimes. TV shows and movies were good even though every aspect wasn’t perfectly realistic. Some of the techno stuff and stunts make movies now less believable in my opinion.
Does Money ‘Really’ make us happy or is that just a myth and more importantly it is ‘what you do with it’ that makes you happier? I think that money has the potential to make your life easier. Once your life is easier you have more time and energy to focus on yourself and your happiness. I think what you do with it really only matters if you care to share it. I honestly don’t care about extravagant vacations, fancy cars, and other indulgences that even a typical “well off” person still could never afford in a lifetime.
How important to you is it to be right? I’m always right unless I am wrong. If I am right then just know that I am right and that I have done my homework to ensure I am right. If I am wrong, please point it out and let me know where I went wrong. That way the next time I will be right again.
How often do you find yourself completely confused with life and the way it is changing and has changed over the last ten or twenty years? Never. It isn’t confusing it is just super f—-ed up!
When out shopping and carrying your goods or groceries which do you prefer to use more often – paper or plastic bags [reusable] or cotton totes or something else? It depends on what I plan on doing with the bags. When I have to pack things I like the plastic bags to pack things in. If I know I will have a lot of recyclables then I like paper so I can reuse it immediately. I do have an obsession with reusable bags and have been told I am no longer “allowed” to purchase bags because I have so many. I like them though but don’t reuse them as often as I should because I see new ones I like.
How many emails do you get a day [roughly] and from who do you get the most? Probably at least 75 emails a day. Most are from retail outlets since I do a lot of shopping online. I have a few different email addresses so each one gets different types.
Have you ever made for yourself ‘homemade wine/spirits’ and if so what was it made from and how was it? Only by accident when I have left fruit or juice in the fridge for too long. I do make Kombucha but it isn’t considered a spirit.
In your opinion and from no ‘fixed time period’, what have been in your eyes the top 5 most memorable television series you have ever watched and what made them special to you? 1. The Muppet Show: loved the puppets and I remember so many of the shows. 2. The Brady Bunch: It was unrealistic with all those kids but each of the kids was “normal” in some kid sort of way. 3. Blue Bloods: Just so good in all senses 4. America’s Next Top Model: I love seeing all of the transformations Tyra would impose on the would-be models. 5. The Love Boat: It was just the ultimate vacation and always love!
What’s wrong with today’s music as opposed to the music of your yesterday’s – do you consider the music now to be far worse or greatly improved and why? I think both. Some music is so technical that it doesn’t seem like a human has even participated in it.
Does world history really matter to our daily lives – is it that important – l mean it’s not like we can change anything right – what do you think? Yes, and it shouldn’t be erased. That is how we learn not to do the same stupid things that have happened in the past. It is good to see what mistakes were made.
Do you believe that a good night’s sleep and waking up refreshed the following day helps you make better decisions or worthier improvements to your life – or it makes no difference at all? It totally makes a world of difference. I have recently been very tired and I am cranky and irritable. I don’t feel like doing much and I just want to eat….
How old are you* and how old do you feel — older or younger than your actual chronological age? Do you generally act your age? And what does “acting your age” mean to you?
I am 49 but feel like I just graduated from high school. I don’t feel old enough to have to make many of the decisions I have had to make in life. On the contrary, I am happy being home doing crafty stuff or reading. I can I am also a “repurposer” so I hate throwing things away that I might be able to use again some day.
Would you want to be a millionaire and if so why and if not why not?Yes. I could find plenty of good things to do with that kind of money. I would make sure my debt was gone and that I was comfortable. After that I would probably use the money to travel to areas that need help. I would be willing to do work to help needy areas…taking care of people, building things they need, helping in other ways.
Do you listen more to the voice in your head or your gut when making difficult decisions?Definitely my head…It is so damn loud I seem to have no choice.
Should we be afraid of our nightmares or see them as a sign of improvement?I am scared as hell! The good ones are fine, the others are just like dealing with stress but you are sleeping. I have told many people before that I had to get help from my therapist for my spider nightmares. Yeah, I am a true arachnophobe and don’t find spider pranks funny.
Are you a fan of cult movies and if so which ones and why?No, I don’t think I have ever seen one. I don’t really know what they are either so I don’t think I could say I was a fan.
What comedy film you could watch over and over?Either The Money Pit or Ace Ventura Pet Detective
How often can you listen to your favourite music for more than an hour in a day or a week without interruptions? I can listen forever…I just don’t know why people have to keep interrupting me! I don’t listen that often though because I sort of forget that is an enjoyable option in life.
What is in your opinion the best way to make an omelette?Eggs and Cheese
When was the last time you were completely naughty? Well, this is a PG site I believe so my answer will be family friendly…Last weekend I was a bit proud of myself!
What’s the secret to making someone laugh hard?It has to be about real life and something that is outright silly. Nothing embarrassing, nothing at anyone else’s expense. Usually it is when someone, me or someone else, just says something so odd yet fitting. Hard to explain. I just picture me and my daughter laughing with tears in the car about something I said…
How forgetful are you and why does the word look so silly when written? I am forgetful if put on the spot but I do remember quite a lot…especially those pieces of information that are completely useless and unrelated to anything. It looks silly when it is written because it looks like it should have another “t”.
What advice did your parents give you about LIFE that you too have passed on to your own children or friends?No one but you can make you happy.
How often do you surf for something on the internet but end up hours later looking at something else … why does it happen to you, what causes you to stray?That happens quite often. I start looking for something and like to dig a bit deeper. Every site has extra information that then peaks my interest in something else. Sometimes by the time I am exhausted and “done” with the computer I don’t even remember what I was on there for in the first place.
1. What is Kapok? A food additive 2. Where will you find a kernel? Where else? In the army. 3. If you didn’t know a door as a door, what would you call it? The Opencloser 4. What’s the difference between a yolk and a yoke? Well, the first one has an “l” and the second one has an “e” 5. What does E R N I E do? Whatever Bert tells him to do 6. What is meant by sunny side up? Any country north of the equator 7. What could you wear on your head that would make people think you were awesome? Probably a headband that says “I’m Awesome!” 8. What is meant by cattywampus? It is a group of stray cats that live in one area, sort of like a on a campus. 9. What is an erf? The polite way to say you farted 10. What is a mouse potato? What isn’t a mouse potato?
Is cereal soup? Why or why not? Cereal is not soup because it never becomes a new thing when you pour the milk in, it is still cereal with milk. On the other hand, when you put broth, chicken, veggies, and spices together it makes soup. You wouldn’t really say “I’m going to have some chicken and veggies with some broth”.
What are some interesting ways to answer everyday questions like “how’s it going” or “what do you do”?How’s it going?: How is what going? What do you do?: When?
What was your favorite toy growing up? My favorite toy growing up was my Holly Hobby Treehouse and my Little People House. The tree house was a cardboard sort of gazebo that all the sides came down to have different “areas”. There was the picnic area where you could put all the little foods. Then there was the swing area that actually had a swing attached. My Little People House was awesome and I guess I would include the other buildings I had, like the castle. I loved that there were trap doors and secret hiding spots.
If you have a pet, and you could ask it three questions, what would you ask? I would ask my dog – 1. Don’t you get tired of laying around all day doing nothing? 2. Is that kibble really tasty and do the different “flavors” really taste different? 3. Does the slime out in the dirty water bowl outside that has filled with rainwater add to the taste of the water, since you would rather drink that than clean water from the tap. I would ask my guinea pigs – 1. If you had a choice how long would you let your teeth get? 2. Does it gross you out a little to know that your teeth grow? 3. Do you see me as an evil giant even though you know me and I feed you or do you recognize me and just run away for the fun of it?
Attitude of Gratitude Section (Always Optional)
What’s one simple thing society at large could do to improve our world? Accept everyone despite their differences.
Ah questions, questions, questions – what is it about you and questions Rory?
Simple, l just like asking questions.
Today some more brain tickling thought provokers …
Do you think society could survive without governmental authority or structure? Absolutely NOT! There are too many idiots in this world who think that there is only one way to do things, their way or no other. These people don’t care about anyone but themselves and getting whatever they can. Maybe they are narcissists or sociopaths but once they get the taste of control, they won’t ever give it back. On the other side of the coin are the other idiots who follow whoever because they can’t make up their own damn mind. In the middle is the rest of the world who only wants peace, equality and fair treatment with the ability to live a fulfilling life without fear of war or consecutive pandemics.
Do we really need all the technology we have? Absolutely NOT! We need technology to get some of our things done and for some communication. We do not need it to find out someone’s secrets or ugly history. We do not need it to steal things from people. We do not need it to replace human interaction. We definitely do need it to monitor the fear of consecutive pandemics.
Everyone has a passion that can absorb them for hours and that includes talking about it with others for hours if left unchecked – do you have such a passion and if so – what is it? Absolutely NOT! I cannot be consumed with hours of someone else talking so I would never consider putting anyone through that, unless of course, there were consecutive lockdowns for consecutive pandemics.
What have you found yourself thinking a lot of late and that seemingly will not leave your brain alone? I’ve been feeling a little negative about the state of the country here in the US and the worry that we may end up seeing consecutive pandemics.
