The Sunshine Award (Stacy's Version)


Thank you to Nevillegirl and Mark for tagging me to do this post. I love prompts like these!

So, here are my responses to The Sunshine Award.
 

Five facts about myself . . .

1. I have very little tolerance for stupid people.

2. I love making things special for people (assuming they're not stupid).

3. I said this the other night, out loud, to my family: "Why does she think we want to see it?!? There are at least 10,000 things I'd rather see than Nicki Minaj's butt."

4. I love visiting bookstores and coffee shops.

5. I love watching films at indie theaters.


Next, Mark's five questions . . .

1. Tell me about your mother.

She's a lively woman who does whatever she wants in life, devil may care. 

2. There are two choices: 1. Perfect health, but a complete inability to remember anything the next day or, 2. A perfect memory, but having only the ability to observe life around you, not directly participate. Which do you choose?

Uh, 1. I'm pretty much already there. And 2 sounds sucky. 

3. Imagine your nemesis has developed a way to force you to read anything he or she chooses. What reading material will be first on the list of tortures?

This is not an easy question. I'll go with Tuesdays with Morrie.

4. Sea salt caramel. A passing fad you want to see disappear, or the greatest trend ever?

I think it's a passing fad, but I do love me some Bruster's homemade Sea Salt Caramel ice cream with toffee bits!

5. What do you think of going barefoot?



I like being barefoot at home in the summer.




I, too, tag anyone who reads this post and feels moved to share. Enjoy!

Well done! Those were some strange questions. I still love your Nicki Minaj comment. And I'm sure there are far more than 10,000 things you'd rather see.

Five facts about myself . . .

1. I've had two cornea transplants, both in my right eye.

2. I enjoy long drives by myself, just me and the radio.

3. I wish I could sing on key.

4. I'd like to live in California at least once in my life.

5. At age 45, I'm pretty sure I've already started shrinking. The sad thing is, I'm short to begin with.


Next, Mark's five questions . . .

1. Tell me about your mother.

My hero. A single mom that did all she could to make sure I got a chance at a college education and has supported me through it all, even when I've been an idiot. Not afraid of work. Taught me the importance of living within your means. Someone I truly admire.

2. There are two choices: 1. Perfect health, but a complete inability to remember anything the next day or, 2. A perfect memory, but having only the ability to observe life around you, not directly participate. Which do you choose?

Option 1. I hate to stand back and not contribute, even if it means I have to take a risk and make a fool of myself. And I have made a fool of myself on more than one occasion.

3. Imagine your nemesis has developed a way to force you to read anything he or she chooses. What reading material will be first on the list of tortures?

Glad that Stacy said it--Tuesdays with Morrie was too sappy for my tastes. And I've actually enjoyed the movies, but The Hunger Games books were not exactly classic literature.

4. Sea salt caramel. A passing fad you want to see disappear, or the greatest trend ever?

Greatest trend ever if you're talking hot chocolate.

5. What do you think of going barefoot?

I love socks and shoes, even if it makes me look like an offical member of the AARP. Yes, much to my daughters' horror, I've worn socks and shoes to the beach.

I still crack up when I think about your Nicki Minaj rant. XD

Emily Foley said...

I bet I could come up with 10,000 things I'd rather see too.

Jimmy, I didn't know any of those!

Sea Salt Caramel hot chocolate?!? I must try this. Where do you find it?

I've heard you speak of your mother before - she sounds like a great lady. That's wonderful that she's supportive of you!

Socks and shoes at the beach? Um . . .

BTW, Jimmy, we got Sea Salt Hot Cocoa at Starbucks while at the beach. DeLICIOUS.

However we were barefoot at the beach, of course. :P
