Stolen from Journey Beyond Survival who stole it from some one else who came up with it one magical afternoon. Was it really afternoon? I don't know.
1. Seeing that it’s a patriotic holiday of sorts I thought of this one: Where were you on September 11th?
Ooh. I always feel a little guilty answering this. I was supposed to be in school that day, and taking a standardized test, but I had had surgery on my ankle the week before (Sept 4th) and I was at home, with my dad. I was doped up on pain killers and I remember through my drug induced haze, my dad yelling at me to turn on my tv and watch the news, I had to watch the news, are you going to put the news on now? turn it on!
Not getting what the fuss was about, I turned it on in time to see the footage after the second plane hit the WTC. And then I asked what was going on, he told me, and I went back to sleep. It was in NY, I was here. I didn't understand the situation, or really even care, until I was able to comprehend it with a clear mind, two weeks later.
2. What is your idea of fun? If given the chance to skip work/life for an entire day, what would you do? (assume you’d be by yourself)
Spending any length of time outside of the house with my husband. Maybe I'm not so hermit-ish after all.
3. Suggestion from a follower. Some blog questions.
How many blogs do you follow?
Do you read them all or just your faves?
I read them all. I am constantly looking to add new blogs too, I like frequent posters.
Do you comment a little, a lot, on all?
It depends on the post. Sometimes I will, sometimes I won't.
Have you ever unfollowed someone because of something they said or you didn’t like their blog?
I have unfollowed a few people, but mostly, I wont add to my blogroll if I dont like what I have read, and I usually read two or three blogs before deciding.
Do you routinely unfollow and why?
No its too much work.
4. Repeat question. Pick one day and one healthy thing you’ll do for just that day next week.
Wednesday. As its my comic book day, and we tend to always meet at a restaurant with really great, moderately expensive food and I pig out, I'd like to NOT eat. So I will cook before hand. Huzzah!
5. Repeat "Make someone a superstar" question. Whose blog or blog comment stuck with you this week and why?
Lyn over at Escape from Obesity. This woman has been through so much emotional pain this week. Having to care for a small child who is sick and other, more personal issues pertaining to her other children as well, its a wonder this woman is even functioning. Not to mention that even under stress she didn't go out on an all out no holds barred binge, but did eat a little off plan and coped with her emotions in a healthy way, is simply amazing.
I can't fathom how she is feeling. I can't believe her resolve. Its one of those things that I will not know about until I have children of my own and I am amazed at her strength. Great job, Lyn. I know its been tough for you, but I am so amazed and awed at what you have done and who you have become.
