Wednesday Wickedness: Brad Pitt

So I decided to give this new meme a try today, mostly because it's helping me procrastinate on my other tasks at hand. For more WW, click here. The meme asks questions based on a famous person's quotes, and this week that person is none other than Brad Pitt. And away we go:

1. "I've got a hard time with morals. All I know is what feels right, what's more important to me is being honest about who you are. Morals I get a little hung up on.” Do you ever have a hard time with morals?

I'm not sure I have a hard time with morals, in that I know right from wrong, but sometimes I don't follow what I know is right. People are selfish, I'm selfish... it's always the sense of good against the sense of self. I'm impulsive and self-indulgent lots of times, and I struggle with that on occasion.

2. “Being married means I can [break wind] and eat ice cream in bed.” Do you eat in bed? If yes, what?

Nope. The only time I ever really ate in bed was when I was breastfeeding my babies and needed sustenance ALL. THE. TIME!

3. “I phoned my grandparents and my grandfather said 'we saw your movie'. 'Which one?' I said. He shouted 'Betty, what was the name of that movie I didn't like?” What was the last movie you hated and why?

Hmm... I can't think of one that I've hated in recent times, but way back when, I'd seen a few Ernest Goes To... movies. I abhor those. Talk about fricking stupid.

4. “We made a plan at school to meet in her garage and kiss. It was like this little business deal. I kissed her and then I ran home.” Did you make 'a plan' the first time you made love or did it just happen?

It just happened. :)

5. “You must lose everything in order to gain anything.” Have you ever felt that you lost it all? If yes, explain.

More than once, but the only one I want to talk about is when our son Robby died. I definitely felt like all was lost then. I remember having this amazing, yet horrible, feeling when I stepped out of the front door of my house and realized that the world was still going on for everyone else, while it had stopped for me. Didn't these people know what had happened??? How could they just move on like that?

6. “We did a little training in the beginning, ... But again, these guys aren't supposed to be skilled fighters.” When were you last time that you were in a fight (physical or not)?

Uh, what...? Hm, my last fight... I can't even remember.  Guess Rob and I have been doing well lately! We argue about stupid little things all the time, like "But you said this" "no I didn't" "yes you did!" "NO, I DIDN"T" etc. but not major stuff.

7. “My week consists ... five days out of the seven I've got at least three cars of paparazzi on me that I've got to either lose or whatever.” Have you ever been stalked?

Yes, in college, I had a crazy psychopath stalker. He was traumatizado. I worked with him at Publix. I quit my job over him at least once. I had at least two police reports filed on him. He broke into my house when he thought I wasn't home, and used my phone and ransacked my roommate's room (I was locked in the back, in my room, with my then-BFF), while I watched him. He broke in another time and attacked me. It was scary. I still have some paranoia about it. Every once in a while, I'll be walking somewhere by myself or something, and I'll imagine him coming up and shooting me in the face or something terrible like that.

8. “I mean, that's the modified self-help version of the psychology, I guess.” Do you believe in 'self help' for problems, or do you prefer therapy?

Both. I personally think everyone could use a little therapy (or a lot)! But self-help is good, too. You have to be personally responsible for your own growth, mental and otherwise.

9. “Fame is a bitch, man.” Do you agree that fame is lousy or would you love to give it a try? Why?

I have no interest in fame. It's hardly important to me. Unless I was famous for something really meaningful, truly significant.

10. “I have always been somebody that really wants to be married. And I don't know if that's just so I can do it differently than my parents did and prove marriage does work.” Do you believe in forever, as in 'love forever'?

Absolutely. And we're working on it!

Well, that was fun. Maybe I'll do it again next week. ;)
