Well, I thought I'd give Linda way out there in Albuquerque, some more information about me, as if she didn't know enough already. That woman can have me arrested if she chose to!!! So here goes, my friend.

1. Have you ever?
I have as a matter of fact!!! Many times!!!

2. Can you whistle and if so, what is your fav whistle tune?
I'm not a good whistler, but if I could I would whistle "Indagodavida (baby)!"

3. If you could go anywhere and stay for a month, where would you go?
Well, I would love to go to Italy or Barcelona, my maternal grandmother's roots, but to keep it realistic, I'd go to Linda's in Albuquerque and give her s--t!!!

4. Are your ears pierced?
Yes, had the first entries at 15 in my mother's kitchen. A friend of my sister's, now a nurse, was piercing ears as a summer job. She used alcohol to clean the lobes and then gently inserted a boiled sewing needle into my lobes...remember the crunch sound. Later, I had two more right above the original 2, then another up on the ear. I no longer use the other 3 holes and have my only ones from 15.

5. Can you do a cartwheel?
Oh Lord no, not now, ever, but I made several attempts when I was younger. I was never a cheer leader because I couldn't cartwheel...tear!!!

6. Were you popular in high school?
At the Catholic girls school I was and also with the Catholic boys schools too, but I was taken away from my popularity and thrown into public school where I was just new meat for a short time, then tossed into the nerd bin!!!

7. What is the last book you read, and did you like it?
Yep, it was a series of short stories by Stephen King, "After Sun Down" or something like that.

8. What is the most embarrassing thing you have ever done, on purpose?
Too many to mention. Ok, I really can't remember any right now, but I know there have been several moments in my life where I through out all rational and dignity to prove something or get a laugh!!

9. Where does the white go when snow melts?
Wha????? It turns to mud!! hahahaha!!!

10. Are you brave enough to answer these 10 questions, and why not?
Hey, I did my best except for #8 and that was due to lack of little gray cells that have now been disposed of due to many aging factors. But if I remember, I'll let you know!

So here it is and if any of you wish to participate, go right ahead. Personally, I have the time today since Miss Daisy has an Alter Society Luncheon so I'm off the hook for today.

I had to take her to Walmart yesterday afternoon at about 3ish. NEVER, NEVER, my dear friends, put yourself in that situation, especially if you have to wait in line for prescriptions. You have to listen to all the griping about the long line, many people who just decide to get in line in front of you and you have to tell them the line begins in the back and they tell you they don't speak English, but I have the last laugh because I speak their language and tell them I will personally escort them to the back of line if they can't see it, children running all over the place since school is out for the day, no bananas, pimento cheese, skim milk,or my brand of yogurt because the hordes hit earlier in the day and they haven't had time to restock, children with their babydaddy's pondering on what brand of formula to buy for their new born (like just that morning), and worse of all, trying to explain to my almost deaf mother that the short line is for 20 items or less and that she and her basket need to get back into the line with me...this said over crying babies, screaming frustrated parents and complaining customers because they like to argue with the poor cashier that Albertsons or Big 8 or Sun Harvest are selling these item cheaper than they and have the paper inserts to prove it. AAAAHHHHHHH!!! So today it will be quiet or as quiet as it can get since our cleaning lady is here and my Mr. Peanut hates her and if he could he would tear out her throat! OH well, that's my life. Peace out.

Linda in New Mexico said...

OMG, you're alive and sounds like kicking everything but yo dog. I love your answers....but how come you no makee up your own questions too. I would answer them....maybe. I read you the riot act in a message on facebook and then here you are, all bright and shiney. I love your wicked woman.
I feel bad for you that you have to go with Ms. Daisy to the worst place on earth to waste time. I did that with my Mom and Dad. I wanted to be good but it was damn hard when all I heard was bitchin and moaning and that was me. tee hee
Blessing and grey headed goats, Linda Come give me shit anytime sweetie

Deborah said...

That was pleasantly entertaining! Especially the WalMart part! I would love to see you escort them to the back of the line. You are awesome!

Hi Georgina. I enjoyed your comments. I know about Walmart after a certain time. When I go to Walmart, it's very early.
7 ish or 8 ish. I don't dare go anytime after 10:30 am because I will definitely have a nervous breakdown with the way some people are so rude. I had an incident a while back when I made the mistake of going after lunch and this lady kept pushing on me. I Turned around and asked, "What are you doing pushing me?" She replied, "Oh, ah, Oh, ah, hmmm. ah.

Can you believe that. I simply told her, "please don't push me."
She snorted and that was that.
I can't believe how some people are. Great answers Georgina, take care.

Georgina!!! I love you, truly. You crack me up. hee hee! And I do hate WM on most days, but the afternoons, you would have to drag me kicking and screaming into that store (and I might not be able to do a cartwheel, but I can kick and scream!). You rest up and kick back - you deserve it! xox Pam

that was fun!

I tried the Walmart pharmacy ONCE.

it was enough.

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

I'm sorry--I really needed that! You poor thing; being subjected to Walmart in the afternoon. I never (repeat NEVER...N-E-V-E-R!) go to that place anytime past 11 a.m. unless my life literally depends on it, and I think I would rather die than fight the Walmart Zombies. (active and loud little buggers, aren't they???)
Hilarious that they tried the *no habla engliase* on YOU...hahahaha!!! Oh gawd, I'm sorry---I can just see you going off on those people!
That's why I love you!!

I went to Catholic schools for 12 years...I understand your humor and strength! You can make me laugh with a moment's notice... and Walmart should be a reality show all by itself. Have a great week and I need to get back to work now. Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

Hey,I had to chuckle at your Walmart story, I'm employed at Walmart and I listen to this everyday, all day! Lol.. The summertime is the worst.

Have a great day,

OMG! You are so funny!
I've stopped in Walmart a couple of times and actually put down my stuff and left. Now I only stop over at the garden center sometimes to get more annuals and I don't have to actually go inside!
And that not speaking English excuse, once I had someone do that to me in line and without thinking I said "AH AH AH!" shaking my head NO and drawing in the air with my finger, from them to the back of the line...God, I MUST be getting old because I would have NEVER done that a few years back!
Hey, I enjoyed reading your "list"! so funny!
Take Care my friend! - Cindi
Hey my verif word is "fuzzilla"!

oldblackcatboo said...

I can't believe I've done this but I already posted it on my blog! Sorry....... don't get mad but....
uuuhhh....I left you an award over at my blog.
Sorry Sorry Sorry and Nevermind if you want, Sorry again
XOXO - Cindi

Oh, that was fun to read, Georgina!! Thanks for your visit on my blog!! ; ) As you your question about the tagine, we love it! However, you have to cook things really slowly over low heat, so dishes don't get done quickly. I like that, but not everyone has the time or patience... Hugs, Silke
