Interesting procratination tool

27 04 2006

So here’s the deal. Leave me a comment in this post and I will:

1. I’ll respond with something random I like about you.
2. I’ll tell you what rodent reminds me of you.
3. I’ll name something we should do together.
4. I’ll say something that only makes sense to you and me (or just me).
5. I’ll tell you my first/clearest memory of you.
6. I’ll leave you a quote that is somehow appropriate to you.
7. I’ll ask you something that I’ve always wondered about you.

If I do this for you, please post this on your journal so you can do the same for other people.

6. Our lives are not determined by what happens to us but by how we react to what happens, not by what life brings to us, but by the attitude we bring to life. A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events, and outcomes. It is a catalyst, a spark that creates extraordinary results.
7. Do unwritten descants bother you?

3. We should take a road trip with several of our friends to Colorado and then on to Oregon.

~Washington Irving
“If a man watches three football games in a row he should be declared legally dead.”        ~Erma Louise Bombeck

2. flying squirrel
3. Take a cruise together in the Bahamas or somewhere warm and lazy.

7. If you could live anywhere, and all your friends and family that you wanted would move there with you, where would you go?

3. do CPT together
4. despite him 😉
5. I really don’t have a good one for that, other than maybe as being Zeb’s closest girl friend. I remember thinking you were really put together and “in the know”. Oh! I take that back, my first memory of you is when you played in “Don’t go gentle”

~Rainer Maria Rilke

2. a hamster
3. Buy and old victorian house and open a B&B and make amazing home cooked meals and use lavender whenever we can. Like leaving a little sprig on everyone’s pillow. We could have a little lavender farm on the side!

Mike~ (glad you figured that out 😉
1. You’ve been yourself since the beginning. No pretending and no games. And of course there’s my thing for eyes.
2. mongoose.
3. Go to Ashland Or. and see a bunch of shows. You’d love it. We’d have to hit the Oregon coast too, because it’s one of my favorite places ever, and I’d love to show you around Salem and Portland. Realistically though, we should make curry.
4. they’ve taught us what we don’t want to do.
5. You asking me if I wanted to do the lab with you. And then trying really hard to remember your name so I wouldn’t embarrass myself.
6. “You don’t love a woman because she is beautiful, but she is beautiful because you love her.”
“To believe in God or in a guiding force because someone tells you to is the height of stupidity. We are given senses to receive our information within. With our own eyes we see, and with our own skin we feel. With our intelligence, it is intended that we understand. But each person must puzzle it out for himself or herself.” ~Sophy Burnham
7. What song best describes your life right now?

Carla Sue

So interested to see what you’ll say 🙂

Carla~ (glad to see you’re name on my blog! 🙂

1. You’ve always taken the time to stay in touch. Through all these years, it would have been so easy to lose track of each other, and you cared enough not to. That’s true friendship in my eyes. Your red hair. I’ve always been jealous of that. The fact that you’re so easy going.
2. gerbil
3. Grow old together in the same town.
4. remember the creek and Megan’s arm and the Supremes and old ladies with big butts 🙂 Ah, there’s so much more I could say.
5. I’ve always known you, since I can remember remembering anything you’ve been there.
6. “Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It’s not something you learn in school. But if you haven’t learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven’t learned anything.”
 ~Muhammad Ali
7. What is your favorite thing about Rick?
