9. will you ever be famous?/ for what?

I don’t know if I will ever be famous, or even well known. I don’t covet it. but if I am known for anything, I want to be known as someone who walks with God, and follows hard after Him.

and for good photography. *grin*

10. what is your star sign?

my star sign is pisces – which corresponds to naftali, the son of judah that caused his mother to laugh.

11. and you will … ?

move to washington, have goats with my beau, and take great photographs!

12. what is your lucky number?

I don’t know how lucky it is, but my favorite number is 3

5. do you prefer coffee or tea?

that depends on the time of day. first thing in the morning I like to have two cups of coffee made with my keurig coffee maker. I love this coffee maker! it makes individual cups, so I never have left over coffee. I prefer french roast and italian roast, because they are both strong, robust coffees. but after two cups, I am done with coffee for the day.

during the course of the rest of the day I like lipton sweet tea without lemon thankyouverymuch, and not diet. sadly, lipton is discontinuing their individual bottles of sweet tea, sold in six-packs or by themselves, in favor of the tea with lemon, the diet tea with lemon, the half diet half regular with lemon, the white tea with raspberry, and the green tea with orange. sigh. since I don’t drink carbonated beverages, I guess I will have to find another brand.

6. what are you lying about.

if I told you that, I would have to kill you. duh.

7. have you ever been secretly in love with anyone?

I am at a place in my life where I don’t ‘fall in love’ anymore. I do love my beau – its that matured love that is a mix of romance and friendship that everyone covets but takes some time and work to develop. I have had my momentary crushes on actors, usually based on a character I saw them play. so its really the fictional character that they played, and not the actor, that I bore the amour for. such feelings are the stuff of the dream chest kept in the world of my mind. they are mine alone. good thing, since none of my crushes are ever on real people.

8. what christmas song is your most favorite?

nothing will ever top ‘o holy night’.

puzzles box of chocolates

puzzle has a series of posts going, answering questions posed by anette. she has likened it to a box of chocolates … and I love chocolate. so it follows I couldn’t resist. I have to try it myself.

so here follows the first in a series of posts answering the 100 questions posed by anette. as with chocolates, I may do a few at a time, I may do one. it will just depend on the timeframe I am working with, and the questions I am answering.

1. what do you think about rollercoasters?

I like them. I think they are great fun. they take you to the height of expectancy, and then deliver the thrill as promised. they don’t leave you bored. they don’t make you dizzy.

I don’t think they are the best analogy for life the way they are used, because they are at once thrilling and exciting and adventurous. life is not always.

my opinion … I think theyre awesome!

2. what four sites do you visit daily?

outside of wordpress, which is obvious …

MSN homepage for newsy headlines and interesting trivia. I usually find something of interest or amusement there.

google search, because there is always something I want to look up.

hotmail, I guess, is also a given …

3. what was the last thing you spent too much money on?

a tanning contract. I wanted to get a bit evened out, and go really only a couple of times … but I got talked into a 12 month contract with unlimited tanning. ya, ok. the beau and I both did it. everything went fine for a while, and the only problem we ever had was with the music controls on the beds. but we both ended up getting a bit burned, in beds that are supposed to be mostly UV free. I wanted out of my contract, but the only way they would let me out was with a buy out – pay the remaining monthly dues in other words. we both stopped going long before the contracts were up. I wont ever do that again.

4. have you ever had a tamagotchi?

a what? no! I had to google this to even find out what it was  ;D

mass hysteria?

france: baby dies, 10 injured in fall from second story window

I have to ask myself how this kind of thing happens. how is it people can be so senseless? how is it people lose the capacity to think like an adult? or perhaps never gain it in the first place? it’s a rather extreme case, this. but it demonstrates so well the way people just don’t think. did they not recognize a member of their own household, of their own family? did the wife not recognize her own husband? a moment of being startled I can grasp. but to scream and carry on, and then for the rest of the family to let her incite them to such frenzied panic … it just does not seem possible for grown men and women to be so easily disposed.

Baby: Twelve people in Paris suburb jumped from their second-floor balcony to escape 'the devil' - and one infant died in the fall

maybe it comes from being scots irish, but i doubt it. i think it comes from growing up among the evergreens, not far from the ocean. ah, my beloved ocean. green is such a quietly strong color.
