Saturday 9: I Started a Joke

 So I was over at Lily's blog.  She sometimes does these meme things.  Today's is the Saturday 9.  I commented, then I realized that I kind of liked this meme, and figured hey, I'll try it out. Here goes nothin'!

To participate in the meme, go here.

1. Tell us a joke that you think is funny. If you don't tell jokes tell us why.
I can never remember jokes, even when I find them incredibly funny.  Except for one, and I don't know why I've remembered it, it's not even that funny, but what the hell -  Q:Why did cavemen drag their women around by the hair? A: Because if they dragged them by their feet, they'd fill up with rocks.

2. Where do you buy most of your clothes?
No one place in particular.  I like Coldwater Creek, Macy's, J.Jill.

3. Which famous person would you like to meet? Why?
Oh, gosh, I can't say that I'd actually like to meet any of them! I would get so tongue-tied and stand there like an idiot.  It's better to just leave the famous folks in my daydreams.

4. What is your ultimate ambition?
I am a person of very little ambition.  

5. Do you like to live in the area of your country or would you prefer something a little different?
I live in a place that's flat, and I'd love to live in a place where there are mountains, or at least rolling hills.

6. Has a newspaper or television reporter ever interviewed you? If so, what were the circumstances and what did you think when you read or saw what you said?
Yes, both.  I did a rather short-term stint as a principal at a private elementary school.  I was interviewed by the paper when we had issues with sewer lines nearby.  They frequently stunk to high heaven, nothing was ever done about it, and finally I'd gotten on the phone to the city engineer, the planner and the mayor's office and when that didn't get me anywhere, I called a reporter. She did a good job, and people noticed.  The sewers were under investigation and repair within a few weeks.  So that was a great experience.  Plus, I got to be the hero of the neighborhood for a few minutes.
I was interviewed for the TV news when our school had a fundraiser with a local celebrity as honorary chairman.  The reporter asked me a lot of questions, but they edit out almost everything so all that remains is basically a sound bite.  And I hated, hated, seeing myself on TV. I looked like such a dork!

7. What was the last CD/mp3 album that you purchased? How did you like it?
The "Glee" cd's.  They are a lot of fun, there's a lot of variety, and I love the show for the musical numbers so it's lovely to have them.  

8. Write down 5 songs you often listen to or that mean a lot to you.
Sweet Child of Mine (Guns 'n' Roses)
You Want to Make a Memory (Bon Jovi)
Misty (various artists) - The first song my husband and I danced to, on our first date
It's Raining Men (The Weather Girls)
He's A Pirate (David Garrett)

9. Do you or your partner usually begin intimacy?
Here's how it goes - We're each in our respective "spots" in the family room, reading, or on our laptops, etc. 
He says: "Do you wanna have sex?"
I either say: "Nah." or "OK."


  1. Crap, that marriage stuff - is it romantic or WHAT?! LOL!

    Oh, interesting veri word: wigalog.

    How many real men does it take to change a light bulb?

  2. I dunno - how many real men does it take to change a light bulb?

  3. None. Real men aren't afraid of the dark.

  4. I <3 Glee!

    Your answer to #9 was perfect.

  5. Yay, Glee!
    Thanks - I mentioned to him recently that I don't exactly have an instant 'on' button so if he tried a little warm up it might be nice.

  6. LOL, Wren! You'd think he'd sort of know those differences between boys and girls at this point.

  7. Wow, the romance is thick in your house. ;-)

    Yay Glee!!!!! Can't wait or it to come back.

    Oh and your joke was baaaad.

  8. Your answer to #3 would be totally me, too. I'd just stare, tongue-tied, at the poor celebrity until the celebrity walked away thinking I was a complete and utter moron.

    And #9 - that's my house, too!! LOL! Except we're both in the basement, at our computers, and it's more like a 'hey, wanna fuck?' question. I'll admit, I'm just as guilty of asking that question as he is. Ah, the romance of married life. ;)

  9. Chris: Yes, Over the years I have tried to explain the whole foreplay concept. Sometimes he remembers!

    Tam: Yes, it's a lovefest. And I told you the joke wasn't that funny!

    Ava: Thanks for stopping by. And I'm glad we're not the only ones who operate that way.

  10. Who would have thought getting dragged by the hair was the better alternative? :D

    Florida is really flat and the first time I drove to Ohio to visit my daughter I fell in love with the mountains on the way there and back. Such a big difference.

    I've never seen Glee but I really liked that clip. I just went and watched Misty by Johnny Mathis on YouTube. So sweet.

  11. Hey Lily!
    I think hilly country is wonderful and peaceful, too.

    I think you do need to watch Glee! The story lines are over the top, but the songs are such fun.

    Misty...Johnny Mathis...sigh.


Talk to me!
