Memer Madness!

I got tagged from a quiet but frequent blog reader of mine who is going through a similar experience like me with divorce and circumstances with the exception that they had no children. She has some really fun links on her blog like making an evil clown and stomping on ants. She also is chronicaling her divorce process and her thoughts on life in general. Go visit one4JC and tell her hi! Thanks for tagging me, I actually like meme's. LOL!

Another Meme...I like this one because it doesn't require too much thought...

1) Grab the book nearest to you, turn to page 18, and find line 4.
There's no question that he had the highest moral standard, the least duplicity, the greatest compassion, of any human being in history. The Case For Faith by Lee Strobel

2) Stretch your left arm out as far as you can and see what you touch.
Picture frame montage of me and Emily.

3) What is the last thing you watched on TV?
Parts of the Olympics though the last full show I watched was Gray's Anatomy (Talk about a cliffhanger!).

4) Without looking, guess what time it is.

5) Now look at the clock. What is the actual time?

6) With the exception of the computer, what can you hear?
Other than Emily playing in front of me not much because my ears are buzzing so bad from the pressure in my sinuses. (The new cold front that came through yesterday really knocked me for a loop with the sinus/chest congestion again. Even though I'm on antibiotics and expectorants it feels like I've started all over again.)

7) When did you last step outside? What were you doing?
This afternoon, leaving a training class for my volunteer Community Emergency Response Team and how to work with our local LifeFlight/STARFlight crews at the scene of a severe accident that they have been called out to.

8) Before you started this survey, what did you look at?
The forums at Omega Letter

9) What are you wearing?
Gray lounging pants, a cream colored, long sleeved, ribbed shirt with a warm, oversized men's flannel shirt that I bought for myself 10 years ago. It's worn very well and looks almost brand new.

10) Did you dream last night?
Not that I remember. When I remember dreaming I dream both in color and black and white and I can remember dreams from when I was a kid even b/c I would have recurring dreams back then. I still have recurring dreams from time to time even now.

11) When did you last laugh?
That time I went out with my dear friend MC and she was telling me a story about when a barely legal kid tried to pick her up in a hotel bar where she had gone to grab a bite to eat after a meeting.

12) What is on the walls of the room you are in?
Paint, an original oil painting and a few framed prints.

13) Seen anything weird lately?
Have you seen some of the contestants that tried out on American Idol?

14) What do you think of this quiz?
It's not bad. Easy thinking which is what I need tonight.

15) What is the last movie you saw?
Tristan & Isolde with my friend MC.

16) If you became a multi-millionaire overnight, what would you buy?
My dream house, a large log/rock cabin in the mountains on at least 100 acres with an emergency room and a meat locker for the game I've killed, cleaned and prepared myself with another nice house for my mom on the same property, a fully loaded, customized, 4 wheel drive, off-road shocks with suspension mini-van with the electric foldaway seats, DVD with surround sound, electric starter, electric doors/liftgate, seat warmers/coolers and voice activated navigation system, I would start a camp for kids and families that was Christian based where they could get away and have fun together in an exciting, yet relaxed atmosphere and fellowship with other families as well.

17) Tell me something about you that I don't know.
Hmmmm, I have one pure white eyelash over my right eye (I may try and get a pic of it and post it later). I was told many years ago by someone I worked with who also had a pure white eyelash that he was told by his grandmother, a very spiritual woman, that if someone has a pure white eyelash (and it's not from age!) that it means that they've been gifted by God. Always thought that was kind of neat regardless of the truth of it.

18) If you could change one thing about the world, regardless of guilt or politics, what would you do?
I would get rid of all kinds of abuse. Physical, verbal, emotional, mental, sexual, substance (think drugs and alcohol) and any other kind you can think of. There're too many heartaches, hurt and broken homes, broken lives and broken spirits because of it. Nobody, especially innocent children, should have to endure any kind of abuse - ever. It's something I'm really passionate about and it's something that makes my blood absolutely boil. It's my big hot button.

19) Do you like to dance?
Love to dance! I'm good at it, I enjoy it, I used to teach it and compete in dance.

20) George Bush?
He's a good man personally, good family man, but he's made poor choices this term and frankly I'm rather disappointed in his inability to call a spade a spade when it comes to some things. With crap like Iran's mental, wicked scary, loonytoons president, the border problem and the terroristic threats from radical Islam, it's time to kick ass and take names, not appease everyone. Be tough, grow a pair and stand up for yourself! I'd rather have a Bush presidency than a Kerry presidency any day though.

21) Imagine your first child is a girl, what do you call her?
I don't have to imagine! Her name is Emily. :)

22) Imagine your first child is a boy, what do you call him?
I've always wanted Matthew Garrett - Matthew for my mom Matilda and Garrett for my dad Gary. Ever since I was in jr. high I wanted to name the first son I had Matthew Garrett.

23) Would you ever consider living abroad?
No. Nothing beats the USA! Though I wouldn't mind visiting Ireland, Scotland and Israel many times over and staying for extended periods of time (4 weeks at a time in each place)

24) What do you want God to say to you when you reach the pearly gates?
Well done good and faithful servant....I've been waiting for you! And guess what? Matt's here too. (Seriously)

Now, who do I tag...

I tag Crouching Mommy Hidden Laundry, Michael Manning, and No_Average_Girl.

Nic: Thank you for tagging me. I welcome friends with all points of view as if we were in a nice warm coffee shop having breakfast and exchanging views. My Blog list has many wonderful people like you who have goodwill to offer and to promote dialogue is a noble purpose. Thank you for enjoying the Steve McQueen Festival also. They just don't make actors like him anymore! lol!

Thanks for the insight and actually DOING the meme. I enjoyed the reference too. I actually pinched it from another blog I wasn't tagged :o)

Dearest Nic

We REALLY need to do something about you if you haven't laughed since January 26! C'mom girl, take a deep breath, get a good mental picture of the attorney general and his boss huddled over the hooka trying to smoke Old Dutch Cleanser, and LET IT LOOSE! You can do this!

the white eyelash made me think of something I hadnt thought of in quite a while: I was once told that the slight indention above your upper lip, and below your nose is where the Angels put their finger there and told you "Sshhh" as an infant after they had told you all the secrets of the world and of God.

The Case for Faith is one of my favorite books! Even better, I think, than The Case for Christ.
