Monday Meme

Boosted with love from the glorious Kwizgiver.

1. Describe the routine of a normal day for you:   Up at 10 to 6:00, get the family up and out the door to school, exercise for about half an hour, goof off on facebook for half an hour, shower, do some work on the paper, meet Mr. Chili for lunch, back to the paper, then shuffling girls around to wherever they need to be.  Dinner, TiVo, bed, Words with Friends, reading, sleep, repeat.

2. What is your greatest strength as a person? I am a true and devoted friend.

3. What is your greatest weakness? I am too trusting.

4. Are you going to run for President in 2016?   I’d be a TERRIBLE politician; I have zero patience for bullshit.  This image is making its way around the internet lately; I don’t know if it’s a true representation of the Prime Minister of Australia, but it doesn’t matter; this would be me.

5. Are you generally self-contained?   That depends on what’s happening around me.

6. Are you generally organized or messy?   I like to think of myself as non-obsessed organized.  Things have their place, but I’m not thrown into anxiety attacks if things are a little messy.

7. Name three things you consider yourself to be very good at, and three things you consider yourself to be very bad at:   I say that my three best qualities are that I am a good and faithful friend, I’m a fantastic mother, and I’m a goddess in the kitchen (I should start adding that I’m a Master level parallel parker).  I’m not so great at hiding my unfavorable opinions (see #4),  my time management skills are lacking lately, and I’ve never been able to master pie crusts (not that I care a whit; I feel no compunction in buying pre-made crusts.  In the grand scheme of things, mastery of pie crust is not a skill I covet).

8. Do you like your neighbours? Do they like you?   I do, and all indications are that they like me, too.

9. Are you different in public then you act among friends?  No.  I am very much a “what you see is what you get” kind of person.  In fact, one of the highest compliments I received was from someone who met me in person after being a blog friend for a couple of years.   After about 20 minutes of conversation, he said “you know, I feel like we’ve always been friends; you’re exactly what I expected you to be.”

10. What goal do you most want to accomplish in your lifetime?   I want to leave the world a nicer, more compassionate place than it was when I got here.

11. Where do you see yourself in 4 years? Pretty much where I am now, though with a job and a kid in college (yikes!).

12. If you could choose, how would you want to leave this world?   At a very old age, in my sleep (of course).

13. If you had only one week to live, what three things would be bumped up on the bucket list?  I’d want to travel; I’d like to get to England and Scotland before I die.

14. What is one thing about you that really stands out?   I don’t know; that’s something you’d have to ask the people around me.

15. What three words best describe your personality?   Intense, generous, devoted.

16. What three words would others probably use to describe you?  Again, you’d have to ask them, but I think they’d agree on intense.

17. What advice do you have to give?  If you can’t help someone, at least try not to hurt them.

    I would also not be a good political president. But I’d be a heck of a book club president. I’d be like the photo above, too.

  2. On point #4: You are way too far to the left to be president ( a reason why I like you). I had a debate with my wife regrading who is farther to the left. You kicked my ass.

    • Really? On which issues am I more lefty than you?

      • Well, I disagree with her, but she contends that women who are to the left are more liberal than men who also are to the left. Justification: Women have to deal with both practices of discrimination promoted by sexism as well as challenges to their rights vis-a-vis reproductive measures. So, as a liberal black man who faces racism daily, I am still a man. Thus, gender usurps race. If that is the case minority women are the most liberal in society.

  3. Yeah, I don’t believe that, either. I think it has to be judged on an issue-by-issue basis, and I’m betting we match up pretty evenly on most issues…

    • I cannot think of a topic we would disagree on. Can you?

      • Probably not. Choice, check. Equality (color, gender, orientation, insert-category-here), check. Immigration? We haven’t talked about that one, but we’re probably at least in the same grid on the chart, so I’m gonna go ahead and call that a check. Education, double-check. We haven’t talked much about guns or drugs, but again, I’m betting we’re pretty close.

        Yeah; I can’t think of anything we’d clash about. I dig that about you.

      • I subscribe to the typical socialist belief that workers have the right to move across lines as a means of improving their lot. Thus, illegal immigration does not bother me much. Plus, they tend to be exploited by the haves who want to pay less than regulated values.

    Re: #4 – I think that would make you a GREAT politician!
