Saturday 9–Brand New Me

  1. It's a brand new year! Do you have any resolutions for 2013? 
    * Win the Powerball
    * Begin work on gaining professional licensure as an LCSW
    * Learn to say “I don’t give a fuck” more
    * Make healthy lifestyle choices.
    * Find out how much Rep. Greg Walden (R-OR) costs so I can outbid whomever makes him vote like an asshole 5164607136_8994cbf48d_z
  2. Dusty Springfield sang of feeling "brand new." What leaves you feeling refreshed and/or rejuvenated?
    * A relaxing day off where I’m allowed to just go with the flow. If I want to do something, I do. Otherwise, it’s all good. This can take place in the comfort of my home or out and about. The key part is going with the flow. The moment I feel compelled to do something or go thCA34M4K3somewhere in a prescribed way or timeframe… it’s over.
  3. Dusty's given name was Mary Catherine. If you could give yourself a brand new first name, what would it be?
    * Indigo Montoya
  4. Actor Billy Bob Thornton has dismissed antiques, saying, "I'm creeped out by old stuff." Do you ever shop at estate sales, yard sales or second-hand stores? Or do you want everything brand new?
    I LOVE estate sales, yard sales, etc.! It seems sometimes though that people are just putting their trash out in the yard/driveway in the hopes that others will haul it away. I look for treasures… those distinctive things that aren’t made anymore; maybe it belonged to grandma or great aunt Tilly. I look things that I really cant describe, but know when I see them.
  5. Are you sad to see the holiday decorations slowly disappear until next year? Or do you think they should come down on January 2?
    * Holiday decorations come down on January 1. It’s in the Constitution, I think.
  6. Do you like the picture on your photo ID?
    * Yes… mainly because I weighed 260 lbs when it was taken in 2008. I figure I have until it expires in 2015 to get back there.
  7. Crazy Sam (the author of this meme) shudders at the very thought of a snake. Which is your least favorite member of the Animal Kingdom?
    * I agree with Sam and Jim Stafford on this one. They just need to stay out in the wild where they belong.
  8. What's the most recent magazine you flipped through?
    * The alumni magazine from where I earned my undergrad, Northwest University.
  9. Do you have nice handwriting?
    * I have been told I do.


  1. Good luck on that Powerball thing Indigo.

    Greta.... ha ha

    Have a great rest of your Saturday!

  2. I love your answers. Especially, "Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die." And I'm glad you reposted the Dusty clip. I think she was completely wonderful.

    1. Oh I could not pass on an opportunity to share some classic Dusty Springfield!

  3. Now that I am retired I just don't like having to be somewhere. We don't like appointments.
