Hey, y'all, link up here if you're playing along this weekend!
Saturday 9: All Random This week's Saturday 9 is refreshingly theme free, featuring questions submitted by regular Saturday 9ers.
1) Do you prefer your pickle sliced thin, sliced thick, or in a spear?
Listen. For me, if it's not a Claussen kosher dill spear, it ain't worthy of being called a pickle.
2) What kind of eggs do you like best for breakfast?
First of all, let me just say that I have to eat the expensive, vegetarian-organic-omega3-whatever-whatever-whatever eggs vs. the El Cheapogrocery store-branded eggs, because the last time I tried the latter, I wound up getting stuck with an Epi-pen and transported to the hospital. Not a fun time! Now, I would avoid eggs entirely, but I rely on them heavily for my high-protein needs, since I eat mostly vegetarian (the occasional sea creature escapes down my esophagus). I will finally answer the question: I like my eggs sunny-side-up, over easy - or, if Hubs is willing to do it, his cheese 'n' onion omelettes are kick-ass grub!
3) If you got 2 pennies for change, would you pocket them or leave them on the counter for the next person?
Oh, I always keep my pennies. I go through a lot of change and rarely accept the 'extra penny' when I'm in need of one at the counter, so I don't feel it's hypocritical of me. Plus, I'm the first one to volunteer a dime or whatever to the person ahead of me who is a few cents short of a dollar, you know? ;)
4) You’re now in charge of the manners for the planet. Tell us the new rules for cell phone etiquette.
#1: I like that new teacher rule where all portable electronic devices have to be collected at the front of the classroom in order for the students to be marked as "present" for class.
#2: S/he who grabs her/his celly first at a restaurant outing is the one who shall have to pick up the check.
#3: If you are gabbing on your cell loudly in line at the store/movie theater/restaurant/wherever and holding up said line while you discuss matters important to no one else, you're fined $50 payable to each and every person within earshot.
#4: If you are texting or talking on your phone while driving like a complete and utter douchenozzle, I have every right to flip you the finger, honk my horn incessantly, and wish diarrhea upon you.
That's enough for now. :D
5) You’re about to write a novel. What genre will it be (sci fi, chick lit, historical fiction, comic …)?
None of the above, but more like a Jodi Picoult novel, wherein you're not sure if it's art imitating life or the other way around...
6) Is it a bad thing to lie to save a friend’s feelings?
If the lie is truly along the lines of altruism, then I guess it's okay. If it's really to spare yourself from feeling badly, then not so much.
7) Is your big toe your longest toe?
Nope; my second toe is longer than my big toe.
8) Hot stone massage: yea or nay?
I've never had one! You tell me.
9) Do you check the mirror before going out?
Of course I do! It's just common sense, isn't it? Also, I am a bit vain, I admit. I might check it two or three times. ;)
