Eleven, Part Three

Okay, here's the final set of questions, this time from Catherine. I wanted to keep her questions in the original colors she selected for them. 

Catherine's Questions:

  1. What is your biggest fear and why?
Not having my parents with me one day.  I know it’s the way life goes, but I can’t even think about it, to be honest.  We are so close—our family is small, but good (Lilo & Stitch reference there). 

Really can’t think about any of this…so…moving on…

2. What are your plans for the future?

“Plan” is a four-letter word in my world.  Every single solitary time I use that word, everything falls magnificently to pieces.  So, I try not to “plan” anything.  I just set goals, hold tight to dreams, and try my best.

3. Do you prefer a nice stomach or a nice butt on the opposite sex?

Hmm. Reckon I’d go with stomach.  Truthfully, I really love strong arms and big hands.

4. What are your opinions on gay marriage?

I’m a hopeless romantic, so maybe this is going to sound embarrassingly simple-minded, but here it goes:  Love is about two people, two hearts, two souls, united as one.  Marriage is supposed to be about two people in love who want to spend the rest of their lives together.   When it comes down to it, shouldn’t it be all about love?  And when you look around this big old world, I reckon it could use a little more love.

5. What do you think about Rebecca Black?

*Crickets* I don’t know who she is.

6. How many pairs of heels do you own?

Ha!  A few, but I'm more of a sneaker/boot/espadrille girl. 

7. Share the experience of your first kiss.
It was awkward, but sweet.  He was older than me and had more experience than I had, which made me crazy nervous.  What’s funny is that he was as anxious as I was nervous because he really liked me, and I, apparently, “intimidated” him, which was just completely weird to me since I’m so not intimidating.

Anyway, when he finally made his move, he asked, “May I?” I actually really liked that.  The kiss was gentle, sweet, and, um, I drove him crazy (he told me as much). It was nice to know the kissing thing came naturally.  Gives me a bit of confidence that other things will just come naturally as well. ;)

8. List 3 things you like about yourself, and 3 things you don't like.

Like: 1. If I could, I’d be a real life Santa, just so I could see people happy and help them see that dreams do come true; 2. My night owl ways; 3.My inner strength.

Dislike: 1. I can be really tough on myself, particularly with work and goals—it’s part of that perfectionist thing; 2. I hate that I allow doubt to creep into my mind from time to time; 3. My long-term relationship with stress.

9. What is the worst pickup line you've ever heard? (check out my last post titled - Pickup lines at their worst, for ideas if your stuck)

“Your lips look like pillows…I’d love to lay one on them.”

10. How many hours a day or week do you spend blogging?

I’m not sure, actually—yeah, that’s a boring non-answer.

11. Would you rather have eternal health, wealth or love? Explain.

Love.  Eternal wealth is intangible and cold.  Eternal health means nothing without love.  Love makes the world go ‘round.

  5. Do you think aliens exist?  If so, are they E.T. kind or Independence Day mean?
  6. What’s the first thought that jumps into your mind when you see the word Disney?
  7. Assuming it’s true, and we only know about 10-15% of the ocean’s inhabitants, what do you hope is down there that we have yet to find?
  8. What is your favorite movie score?
  9. If you found yourself living with seven tiny men, what would their names be?
  10.  A big blue genie grants you one particular wish: Change the world into any imaginary world you’ve either read in a book or seen in a film.  Which world would you choose and why?
  11. If you could pick one literary or film character and bring him to life to be your soul mate, who would it be and why?


  1. Your lips look like pillows? Pardon me while I barf. I especially like your answer to the gay marriage question. In fact, I like all your answers, but I'm sorry that, like me, you have the stress and perfectionist stuff and the "night owl ways."


    1. Yeah, tell me about it. Needless to say, I didn't fall for the line, and he didn't, "lay one on them." Gag.

      Thank you. :) Yeah, I wish I could alleviate the stress a bit more. I've actually gotten better, but it's still my constant companion. :/

    2. I answered your questions. It's a bonus Friday post, available at my blog right this minute.

    3. Aw, thank you! I loved all of your answers so much!

  2. Some pretty cool questions and answers here I couldn't tell you about my first kiss I can't remember it..............I have nothing against gay marriage as you said marriage is about love and if two people are in love and want to get married then why not............

    1. :) Love is so very rare for everyone--it's like the four leaf clover or classic needle in a haystack. So when two people find it, I just think it's kind of a miracle.

  3. I remember my first kiss like it was yesterday. I was cuddling with my first boyfriend in his old Dodge truck in my parents driveway. We were both hella shy. He kissed my cheek, and I stopped breathing. He kissed the corner of my mouth and then my mouth. I was so freaking nervous and scared that I would do it wrong! LOL Afterwards, I was like 'um, that's it? that's all there is to it? why was I so scared?!' I still get butterflies when I think about it. LOL He and I are still good friends - the only ex I remained friends with. He knows too much about me, so I can't let him run amuck. LOL

    1. LOL--Awww, I love that first kiss story! How sweet! It's funny how nervous that first kiss makes people isn't it? I still get a little nervous when I kiss someone new for the first time--it's not the same kind of nervous as the very first kiss, but those little fluttering butterflies are definitely still there.

  4. Aww your first kiss sounds adorable! Thanks for tagging me, I'll do them soon!

  5. "Your lips look like pillows..." bahahahahahahaha! OMG, that's classic lameness!!! I do love your first kiss story, though. Thanks for the tag, I will try my best to answer!

    1. LOL--"Classic lameness" sums it up perfectly. lol

      Aw, thank you. It was a good first kiss. :) I can't wait to read your answers. :)

  6. I was a virgin for a very long time....then....well, I was not. The fun is in being one's self as long as possible, and not being a sheep and going with the herd.

    Love your blog dearie..... Nice questions and answers! Love it!

    1. Thank you so, so much. Many hugs to you. *Hugs*
