This week, there's a new rule that I'm implementing after last week's controversial first responses. To be recognized as the "first to play," you must be the first respondent to either actually post their answers in a comment here, or to post the complete link to the specific entry in your journal where you answer the questions. In other words, it won't be enough to just give your journal's generic address.
Now, on to this week's questions. To play you can either answer the questions in a comment here, or put the answers in an entry on your journal...but either way, leave a link to your journal so that everyone else can visit! (And if you're playing for the first time, please be sure to say so in the comment!) Enjoy!
1. Other than news, sports, editorials and weather, which specific features or columns of the newspaper do you always read? I read Vital Statistics (births, marriages, etc) and the Obituaries, and comics.
2. When do you normally do your Christmas shopping? Have you started this year's, yet? Do you intend to spend more, less or the same this year versus last year? I start on Christmas Eve (my tradition for a long time) unless I find a 'perfect' gift beforehand. Will spend the same, most likely.
3. You're having a true "TV Dinner," made by a classic character: who would you rather have in the kitchen:
A) Aunt Bee from "The Andy Griffith Show"
B) Alice from "The Brady Bunch"
C) June from "Leave it to Beaver"
D) Edith from "All in the Family"
E) Claire from "The Cosby Show"
A) Aunt Bee--just love down home country cooking....yum!
4. What topic are you most sick of hearing about in J-Land?
From my own-sick kid, from others--well, nothing I can think of now--seems the election woes are finally settling down.
5. What company is annoying you most with junk mail? Some damn survey site, I've removed myself several times and they kept coming back--til I blocked them..heehee
6. READER'S CHOICE QUESTION #32 from Chantal: What cheesy sitcom (from any era) most describes how you grew up? Your family, location, dynamics, details... My family is "All in the Family" meets "Soap". I got real crazy relatives on both sides. Mom's side is 'Soap', Dad's is Archie Bunker-like, for sure! Mom's side disagrees with everything Dad's side does.
Mom is from Maryland-staunch family oriented group of people and everyone knows everyone else's business.
Dad is a born and bred midwest (almost southern) boy, whole family keeps to themselves (even though we, my Aunt Lauri, and my uncle Jim live on the same street-we see each other on holidays only).
Talk about complete opposites....
PS-this year marked their 41st Wedding Anniversary!
