The Saturday Six

Picture from Hometown

 

1. What is a bigger pet peeve for you:  someone trying to talk on a cell phone during a movie, a baby crying in a restaurant, a dog barking on your street, or music played loud enough to rattle windows. 

I don't go to many movies, but I think someone talking on a cell phone in a movie would peeve me more than the others.

2. What is your favorite cologne or perfume that you wear most often?  Which one is the one you like the scent of, but don't wear often or at all?

I'm not fond of perfumes.  If a perfume is overpowering, it stuffs up my nose and makes me about half-sick.  I like the smell of Old Spice on a man, though, if it isn't too strong.

3. In your opinion, what is the best way to tell someone you value how much they mean to you?

Put it in a poem, or at least in writing.  That way they have something they can look at again and again.

4. Earlier this week, I posted a personality quiz:   If you haven't taken it, please do; if you already have, how accurate were the results compared with your true personality.

31 TO 40 POINTS: Others see you as sensible, cautious, careful & practical. They see you as clever, gifted, or talented, but modest.
Not a person who makes friends too quickly or easily, but someone who's extremely loyal to friends you do make and who expect the same loyalty in return. Those who really get to know you realize it takes a lot to shake your trust in your friends, but equally that it takes you a long time to get over it if that trust is ever broken.

I'd say that fits me fairly closely, although I barely made this category, with exactly 40 points.

5. When was the last time you feel you got as much sleep as you really needed in a single night?

Several nights ago I actually slept through the night for seven hours straight, which is unheard of for me.  I felt like I'd gotten enough sleep then.

6. If a stranger walked up to you and handed you a briefcase with enough money to pay off every debt you had down to the penny, do you think you could start from then on living debt-free?  

I'd love to say yes, but there's an old saying, "Poor people have poor ways."  

With all bills paid off, I'd say to myself (and Cliff), "Well, now that we don't have any monthly bills, we can afford to buy that new super-charged Dell computer I've been wanting.  And while we're at it, you could use a slightly bigger John Deere." 

There we'd be, with two monthly payments again.

Ohhhhh, a new Dell.  Don't make me drool.  Sparky here has been slower than slow lately.  Then again I don't really notice till I'm on her computer and her's is new so and so very fast.  Suddenly I'm slow and old.  :(
