1. What is something you'll never forget about the age you are right now?
Probably the struggle of unemployment, job hunting, meeting Boyfriend, and how wonderful my family and friends have been to me through everything. Also, while I'm unhappy on the full-time job front, I am happy on the relationship front.
2. What's a household chore you've never done? How have you managed that???
Let's see . . . I vacuum, dust, clean the bathroom (including the toilet and by the way boys are gross lol), sweep, mop, do windows/mirrors, do laundry, clean out the fridge, clean out the fire place, clean off the back porch and do the dishes. I even feed and water the chickens, collect the eggs, let the chickens out in the morning and lock them up at night. I also feed and water the cats and clean out the litter boxes twice a day. I have even watered the frogs - I will not feed them, however. I also bring would up to the back porch and made kindling (and I still have all my fingers!). I even iron clothes when necessary (although now that Grandma moved out I will have to break down and actually buy an ironing board at some point lol) What's left? If there's something left . . . it probably means I make it Boyfriend's duty. ;o)
3. Does nature shape our personalities more than nurture? Explain?
I think it can depend on the situation. But both are important in shaping who all of us become, however.
4. Friday (February 28th) is 'Something on a Stick Day'...funny because Zoanna over at A Penchant for Pens recently sent me an idea for a question relating to this topic. What's your favorite food eaten on a stick?
Corndog. Hands down. Especially a fair corndog. Oh yeah. :o)
5. Which of your five senses do you treasure most, and why?
Ooooh. That's tough. I think sight. I've seen some wonderful things and places and there are still many more I want to see.
6. What's the best music, theatre, or sporting venue you've been to? What made it great?
Locally I would say the Cascade Theater in town. In it's early years it was a hot spot for Hollywood movie stars (seriously). Eventually it ceased to be that; when I was a kid it was the dollar movies - 4 screens. A few years ago it was restored to it's former glory and it's ah-mazing what had be covered up with wall paper and paint over the years. It's a beautiful theater and it's a great, small, local venue for concerts, plays and comedians. Boyfriend and I saw Diamond Rio there in November and recently Lonestar for my birthday.
They found such beautiful artwork under all the layers of wall paper and paint and were able to restore it. It had been a dingy building for so long, and unused for an long period of time. Now it attracts big names like Lonestar, Bill Cosby, and many more that I have no idea who they are! lol
7. It's the last week of the month...in five words or less bid adieu to your February.
Thanks for the memories.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
Two months of unemployment, a few interviews but so far, no takers. Oy ve. I've turned into a housewife without the wife part. lol I bake cookies, take care of the house, run errands, job hunt, work on the weekends and a little during the week for my grandparents magazine, and pack a little here and there (we still don't know where we're moving to so packing is random). But it is nice that Boyfriend's Grandma has moved out as now we can just be us and we don't have to worry about how much noise we make in the kitchen cooking and cleaning while she's asleep at 7:30.
