Crazy Sam at the meme site, Saturday 9, wants to talk about cars, exes, TVs and celebrities. My answers (some cheeky, some true) are as follows. Unless I took the fifth...
1. Think of all your exes. Would you take any of them back?
The question is would they take ME back?
Read my lips: D-I-V-O-R-C-E is a final decree like death and taxes. No turning back. All kidding aside, my ex-husband and I do get along quite well and are friends. It's the only way. I spent half my life with this man. Why would I want to carry around twenty-six years of ill will towards someone I once cared for and more importantly, is the father of my only child? Reconciliation and forgiveness can come after a divorce - in a good way - if you work on it yourself. It really doesn't matter what the other person does. It's worth the effort.
Cheeky approaching: Boyfriends are another story. What was the question?
Oh. Would I take any of them back?
Yes. I would take them back to the gypsy's carnival tent. The $20.00 to have our futures read would have saved me a lot of time I tell ya. (bwwaahhaahhhaa)
2. What was the first car you drove? What happened to it?
The first car I drove was a white Ford Station Wagon. What a hot car that was. Her name was "Bertha" and she belonged to my grandfather, who let me drive big Bertha to school because I hated the big yellow bus. Actually, Bertha drove me. True story: I had to sit on a big yellow telephone book to see over the steering wheel. I'd forgotten about that until just now.
3. What’s the longest amount of time you have driven a car non-stop?
True story. I once drove 700 miles for a first date on New Year's Eve that lasted four days and five nights only to find that he was a certifiable lobster killer. It was a sad day for lobsters everywhere.
4. Have you ever been stood up on a date? If yes, when?
Oh please. Who would stand up a Queen?
5. What TV network do you watch the most?
TV stations have networks? You mean like the internet? I watch so little TV this is a tough question. But if I did, I'd watch re-runs of The Dating Game. I'd forgotten until recently just how much game is in the game. Somebody stop this ride. I want to get off.
P.S. I have an entire website devoted to dating. It's not for the faint-hearted if you're single, but good for a laugh. And it keeps me constantly interested in becoming a nun....
6. Pick out a song you like that has special meaning to you. Share with us what song is it, and what’s the meaning to you.
Hold on. Let me consult the cosmos. I just can't get this question off of my mind....
The crystal ball lady just told me to pass on this answer.
I have deep respect for her wisdom.
Ergo, I pass.
Davy Jones of The Monkees in 1972. I was in deep love. His poster hung on my bedroom wall for two years. He inspired me to begin practice kissing on the mirror - just in case he showed up at my door.
I'm still waiting.
9. It has been said, "First Loves Are Never Over." Is this true for you?
Oh Fiddle Dee. I'll think about that tomorrow....
Meanwhile, I'll just keep kissing the mirror.
Psst!! A little birdie told me on her blog today that someone is having a birthday. It was a well kept secret...UNTIL NOW!
Best wishes to my blog friend. Please go over and wish her a happy birthday at Twisted Sister.
Have some cake. It's really OK to eat it.
I didn't cook it.
