Saturday 9: Uninvited
30 May 2009
Here's a weird coinkydink: I was just listening to this very song - and singing loudly - right here on my very own blahg! Anyway, make sure to link up here if you're playing along. Here are the nine:
1. Do you mind people to show up uninvited?
I do mind. I used to love it, like in my carefree college days, when my house/apartment/dorm room were always neat and anyway, who cared? But nowadays, I like to have advance notice so I can at least pretend I tried to pick up. I'm very self-conscious about the cleanliness (or not) of my home. Somehow I forget people might realize I have three small kids and three animals? Maybe I want them to think I'm Supermom. Maybe I want to think I am. Anyway, yes. Please call first.
2. Last person you talked to on the phone?
Well, aside from Rob (because it's always going to be Rob, and that's boring), it was the manager from the grocery store where I mainly shop, telling me he'd gotten my feedback about that weird girl who accosted me in the dog food aisle, and he was sorry. And she no longer works there, which I hope has nothing to do with the letter, which I was asked to write...
3. Last person on your missed call list?
Same grocery manager, and before that, my sister. Safe bet it's always going to be her on the missed call list, too. Sorry, Stace. Not that she reads this thing.
4. Who calls you the most?
My husband, my sister, my dad, and the people who want us to pay the security system bill, in that order. (It sucks, do NOT use Protect America!)
5. What is your favorite song about breaking up?
"Sad Songs," by Elton John. So maybe it's not really about that, but I don't care.
6. If someone sent you an unexpected gift, what would you like it to be?
Right now, funds. Any other time, yarn works! Good yarn, though, not the plastic stuff.
7. Your classic rock station plays the top songs of all time. What is number one?
Oh, gosh. I am so not the music guru. I listen to pop. Let's see... um, maybe "Pour Some Sugar On Me," by Def Leppard?
8. Do you live for today or tomorrow?
Hey, I'm just doing the best I can not living for yesterday.
9. What movie villain scared you as a kid?
Without a doubt, that would be Freddy Kreuger. I used to take a flying leap from my doorway onto my bed, so he couldn't grab my feet running. And I would NOT put a hand or foot over the edge of the bed at night, lest he grab them. One...two...Freddy's coming for you... scared the sh*t out of me! When our house caught on fire, I was 8, and it was in our kitchen (remember that story, with the burned legs?) - which was just under my bedroom. I was convinced that Freddy was going to have easier access to me now that the stability of that whole structure was compromised!
