TMI – 5-16 -on Wednesday

1. Who was your favorite cartoon character as a child?

I don’t remember a favorite cartoon character!  I’m sure I had one, just don’t remember it.  I do remember loving to watch Captain Kangaroo when I was little, and the Mickey Mouse club as I got a bit older.  The Rifleman was a favorite.

2. What makes you cry?

All kinds of things.  Sad things, happy things, and when I get real angry, sometimes I cry.  Although – I’m more likely to just tear up these days if I’m sad or happy.  I was more likely to out-and-out sob or ugly cry when i was younger.

3. What similarity between you and your significant other do you love?

MP and I both have a strong love of family and want to create a home where people feel welcome – of course, sharing the home with my daughter and grands will be different than just being open, but I deeply appreciate his willingness to do that.  And overall, it’s important to both of us that our house is a place of warmth and non-judgmental love and caring.

4. What characteristic do you admire in others that you feel you are lacking?

Oh, the ability to focus single-mindedly on one path.   Those people who knew when they were little that they wanted to be a doctor, and now they are.  They decide to learn to play guitar, and they take lessons and practice and just do it.  I’m a wanderer – I go from here to there and back and forth and gather information and skills and experience and sometimes end up where I didn’t plan to be, but it’s still just right for me.  So I don’t want to be those single focus folks, but I really admire that.

5. If you could eliminate one thing from your daily schedule, what would it be?

Hmmm.   From my daily schedule.  My schedule is pretty much self-driven, I don’t know what I’d eliminate.  Nope, can’t think of a thing.

Bonus: You can trade places with one person for a day, who would it be?

More hmmmm.  I don’t think I want to trade places with anyone, not even for a day.  Besides, if i traded places with someone, would they run my life that day?  I can’t imagine letting that happen.  Who knows what kind of mess I’d come back to.  No, thanks.  🙂

TMI Tuesday – Confessions (on Wednesday)

1. If a crystal ball could tell you the truth about yourself, your life, your future, what would you want to know?

Oh – I don’t think I want to know anything!  You know?  I kind of thought I did want to know some stuff, but when I started thinking about it?  Nah.  I’ll pass and just continue to be surprised and amazed by the things that life brings.

2. What do you value most in your sex life?

Sex life?  If i had one, i would – ok, never mind.  What i’ve valued most about my sex life, when i had one, was the sense of connection and belonging.  Particularly when it involved spanking and feeling dominated.

3. What, if anything, is too serious to be joked about?

I don’t know if “too serious” is the right term.  I don’t tolerate jokes that are racist or misogynistic or homophobic or any of those other kinds of categories.  I don’t think they’re funny and they offend me. 

4. If you had to move to a state or country besides the one in which you currently live, where would you move and why?

Nope.  I just moved to another state.  Not doing it again anytime soon.  Ok, ok, if I HAD TO?  Sigh…  Maybe Belize.
5. Are you too nice?

Um, no.  Sometimes people think i am, but they don’t know me very well.  i like to think i’m sometimes kind and generous and tolerant and some other things, but “nice?”  Not so much. Then i had to go look up the definition.  From Webster, for context:

The definition of nice is someone who is pleasant or agreeable or something that is in good condition and that is pleasing. An example of nice is a description for a person who is friendly and who everyone likes.

What is the difference between nice and kind?  It will be easier to understand the difference betweennice” and “kind” if we focus on the opposing motivations behind each way of being. The nice person is externally motivated. … The kind person is internally motivated. She has good self-esteem and isn’t looking for approval.

For me, nice always has the connotation of appearing nice rather than something genuine.  And maybe that’s not fair.

Bonus: Falling in love is _____ . (one word only)


Not Tuesday, Still TMI

1. Pancakes or waffles?

Not either really.  I’ll hover between them on a buffet, but often as not don’t take either.  When I do pick one, it’s probably pancakes.

2. Steak or Lobster?

Both!  Ok, if I have to choose – probably lobster.  Maybe.  I do like a good steak too…

3. Freckles or dimples?

Oh, I don’t have either, unless you count the dimples where I’m um,  a bit plump.  Which do I prefer?  Dimples, I guess.

4. Board games or video games?

Damn – neither!  I don’t know why I decided to do this TMI!   No. I don’t play board games or video games.  I’ve gotten a bit obsessed with on-line games in the past – don’t even mention free cell solitaire to me.  And once upon a time in the long ago I was a pinball queen, but of course that involved bars.  So I’m better off staying away from those kinds of activities.

5. Dress up or dress down?

Dress up!  I do like to dress up – and since I work from home, I dress down all the time.

6. Backseat of car or kitchen counter? (Of course I’m talking about a spontaneous place to have sex)

Oh, hmmmm, lol, really neither.  But maybe kitchen counter.  Back seats are not only uncomfortable, but here’s more risk of getting caught and I’m too old for that

7. Nipple clamps or handcuffs? Tell us why you chose your particular sexual encounter enhancement?

Handcuffs!!  I like nipple clamps too, but being restrained, not able to use my hands is soooooo hot.  Preferably the leather, fur-lined kind, but I will take what I can get.

Bonus: How was your weekend? Would you like to repeat it or never see that weekend again?

I had to stop and think – weekend? What weekend?? Oh, that’s right.  Saturday, I was coming home from work travel, and that was ok.  Pretty uneventful, which is good.  Had some lovely Chinese fast food in the airport during my layover, which was nice.

Sunday was pleasant.  We went out and actually had drinks and a free buffet and theoretically watched the Super Bowl.  Theoretically because (in addition to not eating pancakes or waffles, not playing board games or video games, and not being enthusiastic about dimples or freckles) I don’t watch football.  I am clearly, officially, no fun at all.

All of which makes me giggle.
