Questions and Answers......


This is my 75th blogger post! Yay!

Here's another one of those fun question-and-answer posts, this one, again, from Redneck Nerdboy:

Okay, on to the questionnaire! Enjoy!

1. You can flip a switch that will wipe any band or musical artist out of existence. Which one will it be?

It would be Marilyn Manson and Eminem. Both are social deviants, and the power they wield is just plain scary.

2. You seem to be having an excellent day because you just came across a hundred-dollar bill on the sidewalk. Holy crap, a hundred bucks! How are you gonna spend it?

Depends on how close to pay day I am. If it's right before payday, then I'm probably close to broke, and this would be money sent from heaven to get gas and groceries. If it's right after payday, then I'm in the black, and I would probably go pick up a CD or two, or the next season of Monk on DVD, or something frivolous, like that.

3. Rufus appears out of nowhere with a time-traveling phone booth. You can go anytime in the PAST. What time are you traveling to and what are you going to do when you get there?

I would go back in time and NOT marry my first husband. Sorry, but it's true.

4. What is your favorite curse word?

When I'm just a little P.O.-ed, it's "shit". When it's my ex-husband, it's the "f" word. He is the only person on the planet who inspires me to that level of profanity.

5. You have the opportunity to sleep with the movie celebrity of your choice. We are talking no-strings-attached sex and it can only happen once. Who is the lucky celebrity of your choice?

Harrison Ford.

Bonus (as in optional):You accidentally eat some radioactive vegetables. They were good, and what’s even cooler is that they endow you with the super-power of your choice! What’s it gonna be?

I would like the ability to know when someone is telling the truth or not. It would cut through a lot of the bullshit at work, at home, and in every relationship I've ever been in, past, present, and future.

Have a great weekend.

Let's see...

1. Michael Jackson

2. I would probably go with "frivolous."

3. The mid '80s to spend more time with my grandparents.

4. Which is my favorite - or which do I use the most? I don't really have a favorite, but I guess I use the "f" word the most.

5. Angie Harmon

Bonus: Invisibility

Hi, I came to you by way of Jas the nerdboy.(he's awesome!) I like your blog, open honest refreshing. I felt your pain about cheating. It happened to me. Love of my life, just a monica lewinsky type deal (no sex depending on your definition) The boyfriend of the girl was nice enough to call me the day after christmas 8 years ago. I'll neverforget that call. It was late at night and my ex was having a beer with an out of town buddy.This stranger started telling me things only someone would know. I was calm, but my heart was exploding. The first person I called was my ex's sister. I told her to come over I was not feeling well. The reason I wanted her there was( I still shake my head) I thought my heart would beat so fast I would die and my baby would be in the crib crying and no one there to pick her up. My daughter was just three months old. He had started it during my 7th month of pregnancy. I called him next. I confronted, he did not admit, actually said he did not know her. He slept that night, he slept? I'll never get it. We had great sex until the night my little one was born, wasn't lack of that. I think, it's weak souls attracted to weak souls. I read that once during my quest of trying to find the answers. I remember for about 10 straight therapy appointments all I kept asking was WHY? No matter what DR. M explained I didn't get it. Wasn't I pretty enough, sexy enough, what was it? Finally he asked me, do you think Elizabeth Hurley is pretty? I'm like uh yes only the hottest super model at that time. He says, ok then WHY would Hugh Grant cheat on her,( and did you see the woman) then he started listing numerous others. A lightbulb started to go off. He went on to explain it had nothing to do with me. I realized this guy had character flaws, he had never been faithful to anyone-ever. I did not know that. I was lucky, I owned the home, had/have a fantastic job and just when I thought I would meltdown, my company sold off my division, they paid me out for a full year, the buying company wanted me, but it involved a move-noway. They made me an offer to match the selling company's offer if I would be available during transition etc. They used me three times and had people fly to me. I was off work being paid for two years with my most precious angel. I was bitter for a whie, afterall I paid for his chiropractic degree and he cheated 3 months into practice with... yup a patient. We live five miles from each other, we co-parent. He has a girlfriend I feel sorry for her . He'll do it again. I know this because just this past Valentines day he gave me a box with three pairs of thong panties. I asked what am i supposed to do with these? he said I was hoping you would model them for me. HA! as if....
But here's what I did to get through it all, I woke up one day and made a choice and sometimes still have to when I feel robbed of a holiday because it's his turn or he does not pay what he is supposed to in child support etc. The choice is I will not let any of that hurt or old anger steal any of my joy. I will not let his behavior allow me to not give a new guy a fair chance. Is it easy to trust, no. Do I? Yes. I start out that way until I feel someone has betrayed me.
I'm a climber... there are people in life who stay in a pit. A pit of misery, hating ex's, jobs, circumstances. Then there are climbers. They will climb out of the pit, they refuse to be a pit dweller. Yes, I'm a climber.

Wow, this feels good, should i just hit delete or post? Maybe if just one person reads this after i've put it all out there, then they will be a climber too. Thanks for letting me take up so much space.

Hoosier - I agree with out about Marilyn Manson and Eminem! Goodness!

Excellent answers! I love it when you steal meme's from me.

MIA - I am so sorry this has happened to you, but you know... the exact same thing to a friend of mine and my wife's. She found out about it two weeks ago, and he confessed to cheating on her for four years. She and her soon-to-be-ex-husband co-owned a business. She's about 35, he's about 45. He is a millionaire and just suddenly started acting like a crazy-man about four years ago! Mid life crises from hell! They had a little boy about the same time he went nuts.

He bought a yellow lamborgheni, started taking cocaine, dyed his hair green and started treating his wife, his friends and all his employees like total sh--!

His employess by the way have continued to call her for the longest time and asked her to keep him at home, since he's suddenly such a jerk.

I knew him for only a short time, but he definitely fit the form of a footbawl lovin', total masculine, never-"whipped" type of guy and I had a feeling that he was a cheater, just from the vibe I got from him. But I didn't say anything. I wasn't sure.

Then two weeks ago, she called up my wife and told us all about it. Fortunately, she's as tough and brilliantly wonderful as you are and instead of brooding or giving him chance after chance after chance, she is divorcing him and taking her share of the company with her in the form of $$.

She's broken hearted, but she's so pissed off at him and tired of the nonsense, that she's cutting him off and leaving him.

Cheaters, in my opinion, are men (and women) who can't control themselves... Most of them anyway.

Everyone has crushes, even after marriage. It's human nature. But most cheaters just have to have it. They can't control themselves, or their nature. They think about themselves more than they think about those they love and can't control their urges. It's really a shame.

That's why the old addage "once a cheater, always a cheater" applies to most of them, because unless they learn from their mistakes (and some do!) they will continue to hurt those they love because they can't control themselves. But that's just my opinion on the thing.

Anyway, you and Hoosiergirl are my new heroes!

Love Jas...
