Saturday 9: Papa Was a Rolling Stone

Meme time is back!! Or at least this morning anyways...Bug is sleeping over at his buddies' house and I woke up at three with no real chance of going back to sleep, so hey! Time for the Saturday 9!!

Saturday 9: Papa Was a Rolling Stone

1. What’s the best memory that you have of your dad, while growing up? Omigosh...there are so many...One of my favorites though was a Girl Scout Father/Daughter camping weekend and we were trying to make Black Forest cake over the fire. First, we forgot to take the pits out of the cherries--but it didn't matter because Dad melted our pan in the fire and the whole thing was just burned beyond any chance of being edible...We laughed about that for years and years after. My dad--he was the BEST!!

2. How boring do you think your life is? Completely and utterly beyond boring. I'm a stay at home mom who goes nowhere, ever. Snooze fest.

3. Can you do any accents? If not, do you know someone who is good at it? I can do hick Tennessee pretty well after living there for five years, and a pretty good British accent after watching Harry Potter eight hundred bazillion times...

4. What technology did you at first fear that you now could not live without? Cell phones. I didn't 'fear' them, I just didn't see the necessity of them. I am overwhelmed by Blackberries but my hubby has one so they must not be too terribly difficult. I WANT the Samsung Galaxy Note...but I'm stuck with stupid Verizon for another year yet--bah!!!

5. Do you, or have you ever, thought you have a book in you? No. See #2.

6. How does the weather effect where you live? I keep moving north for more snow...

7. Are you more interested in you favorite artist’s next work, or the TMZ side of it all? What the heck is TMZ????

8. Have you ever felt “battled-scarred” by a relationship or relationships in general? If yes, do tell. All relationships leave scars, some worse than others. There are plenty of battle scars here, they're just nun-ya' bizniss...
9. Do you tend to root for the bad guy? It depends on the bad guy. The one that disturbed me most was Woody Harrelson and Juliette Lewis in Natural Born Killers. I was totally rooting for the bad guys by the end of the movie and just absolutely shocked that I could have that response. The Hatfields and the McCoys earlier this year--Devil Anse was crazy bad, but in the end I wanted him to destroy the McCoys--I guess that was a double bad guy scenario....Then reading the Song of Fire and Ice series by George RR Martin, one of the main bad guy characters all of a sudden has a heart and begins to redeem himself so I want to root for him, even after so much of what he's done is completely unforgivable...But most of the time, no, I don't think I cheer for the bad guys. Like, terrorists. Totally wouldn't cheer for terrorists. And I've never rooted for Voldemort. You have to draw the line somewhere.


  1. Dawn -

    Just streaking through. Glad to see you back.


  2. LOL at #5 - loved reading your post :D

  3. I was a bit disturbed by the beginning of that movie too. I wanted to not like Woody. Even though I was at one time a Cheers fanatic.

  4. I would never have thought of cell phones but come to think about I was terrified of them.
