Monday Memes

Don't forget! Today is Mana'o Monday writing challenge. Check it out!

Curious as a Cat

1) If you could teach one person a lesson in humility, who would you choose? my sister Tracie

2) Do you prefer silver or gold jewelry? GOLD

3) Which relative would you gladly never see again? my Aunt Mildred in NC

4) What experience has made you wisest? Divorce, I do not trust anyone as easily as I used to.

5) Show and Tell. What comes to mind first when you see this picture? Or, tell a story if it reminds you of one.
This pic so reminds me of the CA freeways. If you know me or read my blog, you know I love and miss CA so much, but I do not miss sitting on the freeway for an hour or more at a time traveling at a snail's pace.

Monday's a Bitch Random Joy, Celebrity Series

1. What was the last vacation you went on?
Last year in April, hubby, me, our friends Jerry and Janette all went up to Laughlin, NV for a 3 day weekend. It was such fun!

2. Have you ever been to Chicago? no, never have.

3. What's the best example from your life of the phrase "Truth is stranger than fiction"?
The truth that I allowed a man to abuse me physically and mentally for 5 long years is so strange to anyone who knows me.

4. How often do you take Taxis? Are they useful to you, or a waste of money?
When we lived on the west coast (CA and AZ), we took taxies often. They were very convenient. I don't even think our small town in GA has a taxi service.

5. Do you prefer brown sugar or white sugar? white sugar

Bonus: What's your favorite Queen Latifah movie? Bringing Down the House with Steve Martin, but I can hardly wait to see her new one (the Secret Life of Bees) as I loved the book. She plays August Boatwright.

Manic Monday

If you had to be named after one of the 50 states, which would it be?
My name would be California (Callie for short). Then I would be warm all year round, inside and out; and my temperament would always be like a ray of sunshine.

Where do you go for advice?
I actually don't go anywhere for advice. Most of the time, it's everyone asking me for advice. If I have a major problem, I talk about it with my hubby, but generally I take my own adviceand follow my instinct.

What is the sickest you've ever been?
Last May, I was rushed to the ER with hallucinations and a very high fever. I don't remember anything for three days. Had emergency surgery, the doc said my blood had become septic due to the infection inside my body and that I was very luck to have lived. Was in the hospital almost two weeks and came out using a walker. Scared me to death and really changed how I look at life.

I was thinking of a warm place, too - Hawaii. That would be a weird name though. I like Callie. My daughter and I are doing Maniac Monday for the first time.
